Tatiana Norkina, FBS analyst
The dollar index recovered today after two days of falling before the data from the United States. However, the statistics showed a decrease in the producer price index for the last month to 0.2%. Analysts had expected an increase of 0.1%. This put pressure on the American, which is in the green zone (+0.08%), suspending growth slightly below 80.70. On major U.S. stock exchanges, there is some encouragement: DJIA and S&P500 add 0.30% each.
Against this background, the currency pair EUR/USD is in support of 1.3530 again and USD/CHF pair raised to 0.9000 figure. GBP/USD pair is consolidating in 1.6950 area after the explosive growth provoked yesterday by evening statements of Mark Carney about the imminent increase in interest rates. USD/JPY pair has returned to the figure of 102.00, sensing support at 101.60.
