Todays’s Market Movers

  • Yesterday the USD tumbled across the board on the back of trump jawboning. It looks like the market is seeing a different Trump effect than the one it saw after his election. Trump delivered some bearish comments on the USD and the dovish talk about the USD interest rate affected all currencies against the USD, leading to broad losses in USD.
  • The USDJPY moved to new lows on the headlines and was trading yesterday below the 50% support held earlier at 109.36, continuing to fall towards the 108.75 this morning.
  • Trades found a safe haven in Gold causing Gold to jump to above 1280 USD per ounce. What added to the dollar weakness is Trump’s comments on him liking low interest rate policy.
