EURUSD European currency weakened against the failed vote for the presidential election in Greece and speculation of future quantitative easing by the European Central Bank, through purchases of government bonds. The dollar remains supported in the long term, as expectations of an early increase in interest rates and improved economic data are in favor of the greenback. Today we expect important data on consumer confidence in the US, as the expected increase can reinvigorate USD.
GBPUSD pair continues shortovoto movement, as sentiment remains bearish in anticipation of today’s data from the UK Nationwide index and forecasts for a fall, may further stimulate the increase of USD against the pound. Data from last week’s gross domestic product in the US and UK are the same in favor of the US currency after the US GDP surpassed expectations and UK data is not justified forecasts.
US indexes are likely to continue upward movement, after having supported by a good performance last week in the US. Today we expect better data on consumer confidence, which is also likely to support US indices.
