Fundamental analysis for January 22, 2016

January 22, 2016

The "black gold" continues to set the tone of the world stock indices and they, in turn, dictate the currencies dynamics. The trading is quite nervous and volatile. The dollar mostly takes positions. The United States published the weekly initial jobless claims report: 293.000 against the forecasted 278.000.

The single European currency still can not take the tenth figure that indicates the strong sellers presence. Despite significant sell-off in global stock markets since the beginning of the year - the euro was able to symbolically strengthen over this period. The risk appetite decrease is the demand for the euro as a funding currency. There was Mario Draghi's a press conference where he had announced CPI forecasts. The euro has fallen off after the ECB President Mario Draghi said that they need to "reconsider" the Bank monetary policy at its next meeting in March, when there will be fresh economic forecasts. Only by the end of the trades the pair EUR/USD strengthened.

According to the November Unemployment Rate it is too early to write off the United Kingdom economy. Moreover, the pound devaluation against the euro and the dollar will boost exports which have a positive impact on the GDP. This factor reduces the US and UK government bond yield differential in the debt market. The pair pound/dollar increased.

Although the yen has strengthened by 2.9% since the beginning of this year we do not see any signal that the downward trend comes to the end. After a slight pause, investors again rushed to get rid of "risky assets". However the pair USD/JPY strengthened by the end of the trades.
