Today’s Forecast for Important Trading Indicators
- USDJPY – DOLLAR dips 50 pips as Japanese YEN gains after BoJ reduces Government Bonds. DOLLAR fell versus YEN yesterday as investors started a massive sell-off following Bank of Japan’s reduction of the amount of bond buying which carries on also to today’s trading session. With investor sentiment set, market participants become worrisome ahead of week-end reports.
- EURUSD – EURO falls for a 3rd consecutive session despite good German figures. EURO kept falling after having reached a top at 1.208 continuing its bearish rally for a 3rd consecutive trading session. The pair declined despite sharp German Industrial Production and Trade Balance numbers were published as technical overtake. No upward pressure was seen either on the European Unemployment Rate, reaching a January 2009 low.
- GBPUSD – POUND marks time above 1.35 hurdle despite a bearish trading session. The British Pound closed another session with a battle between bulls and bears for a 3rd consecutive session, seeing the bears marginally winning the game. Investors’ focus turns to the Manufacturing Production report released at 09:30 GTM today while Cable is under pressure.
- USOIL – USOIL surges to fresh record high following a staggering API report. Oil surged to a fresh high of $63.34 per barrel after API reported a huge draw of 11.19 million barrels, marking it the 6th consecutive large draw in weeks.
