Fundamental analysis for February 16, 2016

February 16, 2016

The stock markets sentiment had significantly improved which forced the risky assets to retreat after a recent rally. The oil quotations recovery coupled with the Deutsche Bank news. The bank is planning to buy back bonds for the amount of 5 billions dollars. All these factors supported the demand for the dollar.

No important news were published yesterday. We believe that the euro won't show significant growth this week. The industrial production volume in the euro area decreased by 0.31% at the end of 2015, compared with a growth of 0.47% a year earlier. The strong euro is not in the European industrialists' interests and the ECB certainly understands that. The pair euro/dollar fell on the yesterday’s trades.

The 10-year government bonds yield is increasing in relation to their counterparts (USA and Germany) which increases the investments attractiveness in British assets. In addition, the Brent failing had its positive impact on the British currency as expected. Only by the end of the trades the pair pound/dollar slightly decreased.

Japan had published the Q4 GDP, the report did not show any surprises. The decreased household spending and the negative trade balance indicate an economic growth reduction. The 4th quarter GDP reached the level of 1.4% (y/y) vs. 1.2% (y/y) and 0.4% (q/q) vs. 0.3% (q/q). The pair dollar/yen shows a growth.
