The dollar index has fallen this afternoon to 93.50, to the lowest levels in more than three months. EURUSD is at 1.1760. Growth has accelerated after taking an important resistance area around 1.1700. Bullish: British Pound growth by more than 1% close to 1.3300 on commentaries about the progress in negotiations between the EU and the UK leaders on Brexit. The dollar is on the decline across the market, due to a restoring of the demand for risk assets. Bearish: U.S. Initial Jobless Claims are at lows since 1969, and Continued Claims – since 1973. On small timeframes EURUSD is vulnerable to (at least) short-term correction after a big move up. Next focus on: U.S. Existing Home Sales in August at 14:00 GMT. Commentaries from Austria about Brexit deal progress.

American markets ended trading on Wednesday with a slight increase. Asian bourses also experienced growth at the opening, but it was quickly replaced by increased pressure. As a result, at the time of writing Nikkei225 loses 0.6%, Heng Seng has fallen by 0.8%. Futures for S&P500 have lost 0.1% on Thursday morning, being near 2910 level, away from the intraday highs on 2913. From the technical analysis perspective, the U.S. markets experience difficulties with growth on the approach to an important resistance level, from where the market turned to a correction at the end of August. Economic data also support the defensive tone of risky assets. The number of building permits in the U.S. in August fell by 5.7%, and it is 10% lower than the peak levels of January, when the current trend on a decline was marked. The building activity indicators are often considered to be a reliable growth indicator of the consumer sentiment. And this reversal to a decline is a sign of the consumers’ wariness among the rising interest rates environment. It is also worth noting that the current permits volume is about a half of the peak levels of the last-decade construction boom. Let us add disappointing inflation rates, despite the rise in energy prices and tariff pressures. Current data does not undercut the possibility of two increases by the end of the year, supporting the dollar from falling. However, next year the Fed will probably have to act much more cautiously. In the Asian markets, it also seems that the recovery rally has exhausted. After two days of growth, they turned to a decline, returning to the levels of the end of last week. The housing market in the United States remains a focus of attention with the publication of sales in the secondary housing market, where, as in the construction, there has been a weakening of the indicators for the last few months. In addition, the negotiations between the EU and Britain on Brexit and retail sales statistics can influence the demand for the risks. Yesterday the pound has gone from 2-month highs after the reports that the first day of the Britain and the EU Summit had passed without progress.

Despite the expansion of tariffs between China and the United States, global markets remain positive. MSCI Asia ex Japan adds 0.7% this morning; Hong Kong’s Heng Seng increases by 1.1%, although China announced the introduction of 5-10%-tariffs for the U.S. imports of up to $60 billion. S&P500 added 0.5% on Tuesday to the levels above 2900, to important resistance where the correction began last month. Among other important factors, it is worth highlighting the yield growth for 10-year U.S. Treasuries above 3%, up to the maximum since May. Even though usually a yield growth causes the strengthening of the national currency, the dollar almost has not changed for the recent 24 hours. The dollar index remains near 94.0. DXY only managed to depart from month-and-a-half lows in the evening, but in general the trend of this month remains bearish. However, it is necessary to remain cautious about the current trend on the growth of EM stock markets and the weakening of the dollar. Despite the fact that the ECB is moving towards the wind down of its stimulus, it promises not to raise the rate for almost a year, unlike the Fed. The markets are almost sure that it will raise the rates next week and increase the expectations of another hike in December. In Asia’s stock markets, the current growth remains as a part of a technical rebound after a strong oversold earlier this month. In addition, the current round of the rhetoric tightening on international trade makes it almost impossible to end the dispute before the end of the year. It is worth recalling that earlier this year the markets have been confident that trade conflicts would be solved before the end of summer. In the meantime, we see no US deals with China, the EU or NAFTA. Therefore, there are still many risks in the markets, which can send the markets downwards.
