Dollar Defensive on Geo-Political tensions & Euro Gains

Dollar has traded as the weakest one on Monday after it’s rally attempt failed. Additional pressure was seen from US session after retail sales miss. Tension between the US and Saudi Arabia and the risks of sanctions are seen as a factor weighing down the greenback. Meanwhile, Sterling gapped lower at weekly open after weekend’s Brexit negotiations failure. But the Pound gradually regained footing even though there is basically no positive Brexit news. For now, there are still hope that the UK and the EU might agree to something after this week’s EU summit.

Looking ahead, UK employment data will be a major focus in European session. Eurozone will release trade balance and German ZEW economic sentiment.

Week Ahead | Brexit, U.S and China in the Spotlight

Euro slipped lower against the U.S. Dollar on Friday as global equity prices rebounded from this week’s rout and robust Chinese export figures soothed worries about the world’s second biggest economy and its trade war with Washington. GBP on the other hand was slipping the second half of Friday negatively against the Dollar but stayed on the upside overall for last week. This was majorly a profit taking moment among all investors & traders globally after positive response from Brexit Negotiations. Michel Barnier Brexit Negotiator stated that Britain Exit deal could be a “within reach” next week.

Looking ahead, US retail sales, FOMC minutes, and the EU Summit on Brexit stand out in a busy week.

USD loses Streak due to Trumponomics Comments on Fed Decisions!

The sterling continued the upward trend started yesterday & Theresa May will be speaking today in the parliament which is considered could be a Brexit “war Cabinet” to agree a backstop plan that would keep Britain in a customs union with Brussels until a permanent trade deal can be agreed.

The Common currency Euro slowed down on movement due to Brexit Negotiations coming to light. The dollar came under selling pressure amid comments from US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin who said that China shouldn't weaken its currency as long as the differences between the two countries remain unsolved.

Focus of today will be around the ECB Monetary Policy Meeting Accounts for Euro, GBP Bank of England Governor Mark Carney’s Speech will be the highlight, USD Consumer Price Index Ex Food and Energy & USD Consumer Price Index  from US will be released today.

ECB Non-Monetary Policy Meeting in focus while Sterling Swings Positive Pre-Brexit

The EUR tone remains soft as focus remains on Italian fiscal policy and markets maintain pressure on Italian bonds; EU officials are concerned that Italy’s mix of high debt and slow growth is unbalanced but Italian officials will submit a formal draft plan next Monday as Rome stresses that it will not back down. The face-off may continue to weigh on EUR sentiment in the next few weeks. Sterling strengthened against the dollar and hit high versus the euro on Tuesday after Dow Jones reported that the UK and European Union were making progress in Brexit talks and divorce terms could be settled next week.

Focus of today will be around the ECB Non-Monetary Policy Meeting for Euro, GBP Manufacturing Production & Gross Domestic Product which are both key indicators of the current Inflationary level of the United Kingdom will be released today while geo-political risk remains the key area of focus.
