FOREXAnalysis: The next long term resistance isn’t until the 2010 high (May 2010, before the flash crash) at 9498. The level corresponds to the most aggressive inverse head and shoulders measurement at 9547. The width of the latest dip can be used to determine short term objectives, which are now 9159 and 9242.
