Dollar index breakout looms as USD surging vs Pound, Aussie- S&P rangebound

Jobless claims minor improvement this am 249k vs 256k-  Minor pullback in both US Futures, and Europe while most of Asia finished positive and showing more strength in the short run- Key developments today revolve around the Dollar index surging up to the highest levels since early August and closing in on a HUGE area of importance at 96.65, but US Dollar upside breakouts looking more and more likely- Most of this this am is vs the Pound, and Aussie Dollar while EURUSD would need to get under 1.1123 to start accelerating lower-  Crude just getting over 50 this am, while Treasuries continuing their recent selloff while Bunds are rallying.. so this spread between TNX and Bunds continuing to widen out-  overall will be key to concentrate on Financials and Discretionary, both which are arguably on the cusp of upside breakouts relatively speaking vs SPX and should help S&P move back to new highs in the near future-  For S&P, a move over 2169 is necessary, while on the downside under 2132 needed for any sort of bearish stance-   Early movers this am : SCYX, PTCT, FRO, LBG, CRM, JD, MET, while on downside-TWTR, MDCO, SWHC, ALNY--  Let me know if you have any questions
