Here is the Weekly Report by FXPrimus!


DOLLAR appreciated against most majors despite a light week on the economic calendar amid a substantial upward movement in the US Treasury Yields following FOMC minutes.

This week is full of political appearances, hence, trading is likely to be quite speculative with the focus shifting to new Fed Chair Powell’s speech.

Volatility is expected around Draghi, Cunliffe and Quarles’s speeches.

February 27th, Tuesday

Fed Chair Powell’s speech speculation-led while DOLLAR seeks directional bias.

Tuesday will be characterized by high volatility as data in Europe and the US will dominate the session.

In Europe, a number of CPIs are expected as well as Weidmann’s speech, in the US, markets look forward to the Durable Goods Orders and the CB Consumer Confidence.

On the political front, Fed Chair Powell’s testimony on Semiannual Monetary Policy is the day’s highlight.

February 28th, Wednesday

European Inflation and US Growth in focus as markets look for guidance.

Volatility in the session will kick-in early in the Asian session with New Zealandian Business Confidence and the Chinese PMIs.

In Europe, a number of CPIs will be due as well as the European Flash CPI figures.

In the US, market participants will look forward to the Prelim GDP growth as well as the Chicago PMI and the Pending Home Sales.
