The markets pulled back aggressively at 11:30am EST and are now down about a percent or so.  According to some, the reason for the pullback was because of a reversal in the dollar and the fact that the markets hit upside resistance and couldn’t break through.  In short, I think this latter comment implies that the markets have pulled back because they couldn’t go up anymore.  How is that for simple brilliance!
