para1

Before Christmas and the New Year traders close long-term deals on  the dollar. The currency pair EUR / USD grew above the level 1,0400. Though, middle-term and long-term forecasts for the dollar stay bearish. The strong positions of the American currency in the market are guaranteed.

The changes in the monetary policy of the European Central Bank and the FRS of the USA also influence the US dollar in a positive way.

The euro price reached the minimum, but bears did not manage to keep their positions.

Relative Strength Index indicated the possibility of the correction movement development. If the currency pair EURUSD manages to grow above the level 1,0500, then it can grow to the level 1,0700.

Though, it is also probable that the currency pair will return to its minimum and move to the level 1,0300.

 

GBP / USD – BRITISH POUND DOLLAR

para2

The British currency is weak. The profitability of British stocks is dropping. This influences the British pound in a negative way.

The currency pair GBP / USD passes the support level 1,23. This indicates that there is a possibility that the movement can change to the descending one. RSI is falling. This indicates that the currency pair GBPUSD can test the support level.

The American currency is expected to grow till the level 1,2150

 

USD / JPY – US DOLLAR JAPANESE YEN

para3
