Current trend

US dollar continues to reduce against the majors due to low trading volumes. Market players are cautious waiting for the release of the minuted of the Fed’s December meeting. No important macroeconomic releases are expected from Japan until the end of the week. At the same time, US currency is under pressure from central banks of other countries, as the growth of the global economy in 2017 catalyzes the tightening of the monetary policy in a number of key states leading to the reduction of differences between the rates.

The main event of today is the release of the minutes of December Fed’s meeting. Investors hope to receive new data on further rates of the US fiscal policy. Moreover, market volatility may be caused by simultaneous release of gradual inflation build-up index and industrial PMI, as well as the data on construction expenses in the USA. The pair is extremely sensitive to inflation indicators, as its low level in the USA prevents the Fed from implementing its monetary policy plans.
