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. In the light of this, buyers showed interest to the Japanese yen.
