    Pound remains weak

    The GBP/USD pair is trading lower on Wednesday, and it was the fourth consecutive day of sales of the pound.

    The British Pound continues to recede in tandem with the US currency. The current quote in the GBP/USD pair is 1.4801. The pound stands at the minimum of eight and a half months.

    Yesterday the fans of the pound were upset by expectations – regarding the expanding spread between the monetary policy of the ECB, the Fed and the Bank of England, and about the prospects for the New Year. The later the British regulator starts the phase of raising interest rates and the slower it will be, the greater will be the pressure on the GBP. The market is seriously discussing the probability of a referendum on the UK exit from the EU. It scares the market participants.

    The euro started the week with a fall

    On Monday, the main currency pair is falling under pressure from the not very fresh Chinese news.

    At the beginning of the week in the macroeconomic calendar has experienced an information vacuum, but investors did not panic, and took advantage of the Chinese statistical data from last weekend. The euro/dollar declines on Monday afternoon, and the current price is 1.0885 (-0.35%).

    So, the world really is watching carefully what is happening in China. Inflation in December in China rose by 0.5% m/m (+ 1.6% y/y) against the forecast of 0.4% m/m and 1.5% y/y. At first glance, these numbers are not bad, but this is misleading. The problem is that the target of the PBOC in 2015 for the Consumer Price Index was at a level of not less than 3%. It turns out that the total indicator of prices in the consumer basket looks quite weak. This, in turn, indicates the small consumer activity and minimal internal demand.

    The euro begins to retreat

    The pound is being pulled down

    The GBP/USD pair remains near many week lows, and the Bank of England protocol did not support the pound.

    On Thursday, the British Pound remains under pressure. The GBP/USD pair managed to update a new low at 1.4361, but is trading slightly higher. However, while the turbulence in the currency market remains serious, there is a possibility of the pound updating its lows again.

    Today the minutes of the previous meeting of the Bank of England were published. The document points to a number of risks for the British economy: for example, the lower-than-expected levels of labor productivity in the country. Moreover, wage growth has slowed down, and it has lowered inflationary pressures. Parameters of crediting are still going up, but even here the impulse does not look the strongest. Low rates were to accelerate the demand for credit products, but the British prefer not to take risks.

    The Australian dollar tried to rise

    The AUD / USD on Thursday morning attempted to strengthen, but still failed to rise noticeably.

    The PBOC fulfilled their intention of stimulating the economy by increasing liquidity. On Thursday, the Bank of China has poured into the financial system of the country $ 60.79 billion, or 400 billion yuan. This week is truly a record in terms of the volume of financial injections - last time a weekly intervention of similar magnitude were observed in 2012.

    The Fed has left the dollar vulnerable

    The main currency pair weakened the night before, but in the afternoon on Thursday returned to a narrow trading range.

    On Thursday the euro/dollar is trading reservedly - investors continue to evaluate the results of the two-day meeting of the US Federal Reserve, which ended yesterday, the first in the New Year. The current quotation of the instrument is 1.0875.

    Thus, the Fed kept the interest rate in the previous target range of 0.25-0.50% per annum, the last time it was revised in December 2015, after the first phase of a multi-year lull. So, the decision was expected - the time of the revision was too short for the economy to feel any noticeable effect. The Fed accompanying statement was quite mild, although the regulator has promised to raise rates further.

    A recession is on the horizon. Fundamental analysis for 01.12.2016

    The US economy may soon lose its position as a major driver of the global post-crisis recovery. According to recent studies from Financial Times, the probability of the return of a recession in the US this year is 20%. Parallel to this, the likelihood of further rate hikes by the Fed is decreasing, which could cause frankly weak US statistics, and global risks are growing due to the slowing economic growth in China.

    Beijing already took stock of the past year, and reported on the growth of its economy by 6.9%. Of course, European countries and the USA can only dream of these indicators, but for China it is the minimum growth since 1990. And it seems that the course of the Chinese Communist Party is to turn the economy to domestic consumption is gaining momentum - in 2015 the volume of foreign trade decreased by 7%, while the share of services in GDP for the first time in the history of the country exceeded 50%.
