EURO and STERLING rose for a 6th consecutive week against DOLLAR as comments from the US Administration added downward pressure on the weak currency in Davos last week.
US Stocks extended gains for another week reaching new all-time highs amid a weak greenback and a poor weekly closing following a disappointing US GDP print.
GOLD and OIL longest rallies also extended shadowing the strong majors while DOLLAR remained in decline.
This week starts on a light footing on the economic calendar but all eyes will turn to FOMC, the monthly NFP and Eurozone’s Inflation figures.
