Fundamental analysis for March 16, 2016

March 16, 2016

The dollar strengthened against the European currencies, still it was unable to continue the recovery against the yen. The yen had strengthened its position with a hope that the BoJ would remain inactive in its further steps.

The US published a block of statistics: NY Empire State Manufacturing Index (0,62 against the forecasted -10,00), Retail Sales (-0,1% against the forecasted -0,2%), Producer Price Index (at the forecasted -0,2%), Business Inventories (0,1% against the forecasted -0,1%), House Price Index (58 against the forecasted 59). The Retail Sales report was the focus of our attention. The index will help traders to form expectations about the Fed's decision on Wednesday.

The yesterday’s growth of the euro put many traders into a dead end. We do not know whether there was a strong demand for the euro, or an attempt to drive the market at high levels to sell it further at attractive prices. We believe that we will receive an answer today when the FOMC meeting will determine the trend of the pair. By the end of the trades the pair EUR/USD slightly strengthened.

The British currency showed a mixed background. On the one hand, the UK government bonds yield increased in relation to their counterparts (USA and Germany) which increased the attractiveness of the British assets. On the other hand, traders fixated profit and closed "black gold" long positions after the four-week growth which played into the sellers’ hands. The trades on the pair GBP/USD closed with a decrease.

The US dollar fell against the Japanese yen after the Bank of Japan's decision to keep the interest rates without changes. The regulator lowered the assessment of the economic situation in the country. The BoJ kept the interest rates on deposits of some commercial banks to -0.1%. The regulator left the amount of asset purchases unchanged at 80 trillion yen a year. The pair USD/JPY fell
