The Eurozone unemployment rate decreased by 0.8% to the level of 10.4% in 2015. That figure is a clear reflection of the ECB soft monetary policy.

As we can see, the UK economic slowdown is stronger than in the USA which has traditionally been a negative factor for the currency. The pair pound/dollar increased.

The dollar showed a rather volatile dynamics. The currency weakened against the yen which is in demand amid a new wave of risk aversion. The oil prices falling caused stock indices decrease which significantly losing ground this week after the spectacular recent growth.
