Fundamental analysis for April 01, 2016

The dollar continued to lose ground, being under heavy pressure after the recent extremely soft Janet Yellen's comments. The dollar was so shocked by the regulator's rhetoric that was not able to show a positive reaction even after a positive labor market report.

According to the ADP, the level of employment increased by 200 000 compared to the forecasted 194 000. If not the recent Yellen's comments the market could see a decent dollar growth in response to the positive ADP release, which attracted considerable attention in anticipation of the NFP. The USA published Initial Jobless Claims for March at the level of 276K (the previous value was 265K; the forecast was 269K).

After a positive German’s CPI release we expect the Euro area inflation data better than a consensus forecast. The ECB soft monetary policy and the oil price growth pressured the inflation in Europe. The preliminary CPI for March came in at -0.1% m/m, in line with the forecast. The pair EUR/USD strengthened.

The United Kingdom published the final GDP for Q4. The report showed 2.1% vs. the forecast of 1.9%. According to Carney, the Bank of England governor, the low growth and low interest rates create problems for banks and corporations. The instrument pound/dollar is consolidating.

The published Japanese macroeconomic statistics continued to disappoint the market. The main factors that pressured the yen were: weak employment and retail sales report and the negative industrial production. The industrial production has been decreasing the last three months. The pair dollar/yen is consolidating.
