British Pound (Monthly)

In my prior article (US Dollar Monthly), I conclude that the US dollar is going to be weak this year. In order to having the best combination for our currency basket we need to Analyze other major pairs like EUR, GBP, AUD and others. What we shouldn’t do right now is to analyze the major it selves. For example, If you wish to trade EUR/USD, you can analyze the EUR pairs and USD pairs individually, like EUR/GBP and EUR/CAD or EUR/AUD first and then do the same for the USD. Only after you have the possible direction of both currencies you go to EUR/USD pair to see where price might go.

Fed Gives Dollar a Smack

The USD on Wednesday weakened throughout the market. The Fed decided to keep their interest rate at 0.25-0.50%. It was announced that the rate is to be raised twice this year, and not four times as was said earlier. It is this that caused a sharp fall of the dollar.

Since the Federal Reserve hiked rates in December, both the European Central Bank and the Bank of Japan have eased policy further. The idea that because they cut rates means that the Fed cannot raise rates is a not a particularly helpful way to think about that is happening.
