    On Thursday, the National Bank of Switzerland shocked the market, refusing the hard franc per euro cap at a level of 1.2, which was holden since 2011. Also the interest rate was reduced to -0.75%.

Analysts remind that the ECB may announce the launch of the quantitative easing program and the expansion of its balance sheet by 1 trillion euros during the next meeting on 22 January. As for the Fed, the US regulator plans to tighten monetary policy. Perhaps the Fed will tighten interest rates this summer.

According to preliminary surveys of the electorate, the population prefers the radical left political forces, and if they come to power, the membership of Greece in the euro area will be open to question.

    Vista Brokers: On Tuesday, the dollar rose against the Japanese yen



    On Tuesday, the dollar rose to a one-week high against the yen amid the data showed the Chinese economic growth slowing. Vista Brokers analysts say that the speculation on the Chinese economy "drawdown" was in the market long time ago. And now investors are wondering whether the Bank of Japan will take some measures to limit the demand for yen.

    The additional stimulus to growth the dollar received from the updated forecast of the International Monetary Fund. The IMF lowered its growth forecasts for almost all major economies, but not for the USA. The organization's experts expect that global growth in 2015-2016 will be 3.5% and 3.7% (-0.3% compared with the previous forecast). At the same time, the growth forecasts for the US economy have been increased to 3.6% in 2015 and 3.3% in 2016. The main reasons for the forecasts cutting the IMF calls reassess the prospects of economy of China, the euro zone, Russia and Japan, as well as the weakening of the petroleum exporting countries in response to falling prices for oil.

    Amid the dollar rose against the yen by 0.9% at 118,615 yen after touching an earlier peak of 118.775.

    Analysts note that the data on China's GDP changes in 2014 turned out to be the weakest for the last 24 years, although it is slightly stronger than profile experts expected. Over the past year, the Chinese economy grew by 7.4%, against 7.5% projected by the government and market expectations of 7.3%.

    The euro against the yen rose by 0.46% to 137,190.


    Vista Brokers: Bank of Japan did not Extend Stimulus Plan



    On Monday morning, the yen strengthened against the dollar after the Bank of Japan did not announce additional measures to stimulate the economy. The Japanese currency has strengthened against the dollar by 1% to 117.66. EUR/JPY rose by 0.7% to 136.31 yen per euro.

    Vista Brokers analysts note that Asian stock markets also received support. MSCI index (the broadest stock index for the Asia-Pacific region outside of Japan) grew by 1.1% and reached its highest level in six weeks. Against this background Australian and New Zealand currencies increased, inspired by the demand for high-risk assets. The Australian dollar rose by 0.7% to 82.26, and New Zealand kiwi - by 0.4% to 76.67.

    According to experts, the decision of the Bank of Japan to retain the stimulus plan was expected, although some market participants put their a stake on belief that Haruhiko Kuroda today announces some new measures. In the new fiscal year which will start in April, the prospects for achieving the target level of inflation in Japan remain very vague. Therefore, some market participants expect new steps of stimulation from the Bank of Japan. The last time the regulator took the decision to expand the asset purchase program to 80 trillion yen in October 2014.

    Euro against the dollar rose on Wednesday. The market is in anticipation of tomorrow's ECB meeting, which will determine the monetary control strategy for the near future and will have an impact on the euro.
    Analysts remind that on Thursday, the European Central Bank may announce the launch of the quantitative easing program, involves 550 billion-euro ($637 billion) bond-purchase. That is according to 93 percent of respondents in a Bloomberg survey of economists.

    Vista Brokers: Stock Markets are Rising in ECB Meeting Expectations



    On Thursday morning, the euro was trading near 11-year low against the dollar. Today is the day when the ECB should announce the launch of the quantitative easing program, and the market remains highly volatile. Amid named expectations American, Asian and European stock markets are rising.

    While trading in London euro against the dollar has weakened by 0.2%, reaching $ 1.1588. Vista Brokers analysts point out that for the pair it is a minimum since November 2003, after the ECB was said to propose 50 billion euros of asset purchases. Now we are talking about much larger amounts - 550, or even 600 billion euros. That is the amount that market participants want to hear today from Mario Draghi.

    Yields on 10-year bonds in Japan rose by 8 points, up to a maximum of 2013. Futures on the Euro Stoxx 50 rose by 0.3%, while the Standard & Poor's 500 index – by 0.2%. Hang Seng Index gained 0.6%.

    Although more than 90% of the experts participating in the Bloomberg survey believe in such a decision of the European Central Bank, it is always the possibility that the actions of the regulator will go counter to the market expectations. If the bank announces its plan to stimulate the economy today, large-scale asset purchases will begin on the 1st of March.
