Dollar on the offensive

The dollar went on the offensive against the euro and pound in the first half of today’s European trading session. The US dollar index (DXY), at the time of writing, is at the 92.80 mark (+0.38%), while the euro index (ECX) is at 94.00 (-0.32%). In my opinion, the dollar’s growth over the last few days is due to a partial restoration of investor confidence in the US economy as well as some traders cashing in on their long positions on the EURUSD around the psychological barrier of 1.20.

Forex market review: (26/09/17)

During his speech yesterday at the European parliament, ECB president Mario Draghi accredited the euro’s rise since the beginning of the year to the marked improvement in the Eurozone’s economic situation. The ECB head stressed that the bank’s ongoing ultra-loose monetary policy was a significant contributor to recent economic growth. Draghi also emphasised that the regulator’s asset-purchasing program has turned out to be very effective. The ECB is expecting 2.2% percent growth in 2017, 1.8% in 2018, and 1.7% in 2019.
