    USD remains strong against basket of currencies



    The Dollar moved higher today as it recouped gains lost further to the dip incurred following the surprising results from US wages last Friday. Demand has been on a continuous rise for the Dollar – albeit today we saw some thinner volumes of trading due to the holiday in Japan. The Greenback was up 0.2% against the Euro and 0.25% up against a basket of Major currencies. The EURUSD has thus far taken a dip of some 50+ pips from today’s opening session to trade around the 1.1791 mark as of late, as it edges closer to the recently established 9 year low of 1.1752.

    Against the Yen the Dollar dipped further in today’s opening session trading around the 118.20’s but has since in European session recovered some losses and has risen some 100 pips to trade at 119.20. Today’s holiday in Japan has seen thinner volumes in early Asian session.

    In Europe, Italy’s central bank chief warned on Sunday that risk of spiraling deflation in the Euro zone should not go unaccounted for. The EU economy is currently in a very fragile condition with Greece expected to put in place a member of the Siriza party as the country’s next president, which would most likely oppose the current austerity measures that are put in place in the debt ridden country.

    On Monday, oil prices renewed their declines, falling below $ 49 a barrel. Thus, the decline continues for seven straight weeks, and both Brent and WTI are now around their lowest since April 2009: 48.82 and 47.24 dollars per barrel, respectively.

    Vista Brokers analysts note that Goldman Sachs experts have lowered their quarterly and annual forecasts on the oil market.

The forecast for 2015 also decreased to 50.40 and 47.15 dollars per barrel, respectively.

    Meanwhile, Saudi Arabia, the largest oil exporter in the world, continues to refuse demands of OPEC to cut production, to keep the price drop.

    Vista Brokers: on Monday Dollar was Traded under Pressure



    The US dollar declined against the euro and the yen amid US stock market falling. Also traders continued to follow the mixed data on the US labor market, published on Friday.

    Vista Brokers analysts note that the average hourly wage decreasing by 0.2% in the United States led investors to think about if the Fed would raise rates when the labor market still has some problems.

    Another important reference point for the regulator is the inflation, and the situation with this indicator is not too optimistic. According to the forecasts the consumer price index in the US, which will be released this Friday, can show decline by 0.3% in December.

    Seizing the moment of weakness of the dollar, the euro rebounded slightly and walked away from the 9-month low of $ 1.1753.

    The analysts remind that this week the market will be waiting for the decision of the European Court of OMT program - scheme of bond purchases, and it may have a strong influence on the ECB actions. If the court makes a negative decision, the volume of quantitative easing may be limited in the future. And considering that the stimulation is already put in the price of the euro, the market reaction may be strong.

    Vista Brokers: Dollar Rose against Currency Basket



    On Tuesday, the US dollar rose against its major competitors. Market participants finished to take a lead from the Friday ambiguous data on US labor market and shifted their attention to the fact that the US economy is in clearly better situation than another world major economies. In this regard, investors expect that this year the Fed will raise interest rates.

    The dollar has risen against a currency basket in seven of the last eight trading sessions and has a good chance to finish a fourth straight week with the growth. Vista Brokers analysts point out that the positive investor tone against the dollar is limited by the reduction in oil prices, which in June, 2014 hav lost more than 50% of the value. Today, oil futures were traded at six-year lows, and fears of further decline still reserved.

    However, it seems that the dollar at the moment remains a better investment than most other major currencies. On Tuesday, the euro was traded at 9-month lows against the dollar. The additional pressure on the single currency had an expectation of further economy stimulation steps by the ECB.

    Also Deutsche Bundesbank lowered its forecasts for the euro. Now the regulator expects the single currency to reduce to $ 1.10, $ 1.00 and $ 0.90 by the end of 2015, 2016 and 2017, respectively.

    Vista Brokers: Investors Prefer Safe Assets



    On Wednesday, the dollar came under pressure after the disappointing data on the volume of retail trade in the US. In December, the indicator fell by 0.9% including auto and 1% excluding auto. The index excluding auto and gas decreased by 0.3%.

    Vista Brokers analysts point out that for retail trade it is the worst performance in the last 11 months, and it has reminded investors about their fears over global economic growth and inflation. The market expects that in June of this year, the Fed will raise interest rates, but the poor statistics can delay the process.

    After the data on retail sales release the dollar fell to 116.07 yen, having lost 1.6%, but then oil suddenly rose in price in anticipation of US Department of Energy data on oil reserves. It stabilized the market and the dollar recovered to 117.35 yen. The euro rose by 0.1% to $ 1.1783 after trading near $ 1.1847 during the session.

    On Wednesday, the copper price fell to a more than five-year low, and it sent concerned investors to safer assets such as US Treasuries and Japanese currency.

    Vista Brokers: Australian Dollar Rose only to Fall even Further



    On Thursday morning, the currency get the stimulus to growth after the publication of the unemployment rate and the employment change in Australia for December. So, for the first winter month, unemployment rate fell from 6.2% to 6.1%, while analysts expect its growth to 6.3%. The number of employees has grown much stronger than expected by 37.4K vs. forecast 5.3K.

    Vista Brokers analysts note that the Australian dollar rally was short enough. The labor market data did not help the Australian dollar to recover from fears associated with the commodity market fall, which put a pressure on it. This week not only oil updated fresh lows, but also copper, on which the Australian economy depends on, has fallen dramatically in price.
