November 24th Daily Analysis

Dollar Index (USDX)

The US dollar index fell by 0.9% since the majority of the Fed’s members in the November meeting believed that a slowdown in the pace of interest rate hikes will likely remain appropriate.

Fed members also noted that the labor market remains strong, but many noted initial signs that it may be slowly moving towards a better balance between supply and demand.

Technically, the US dollar is expected to decline with the continuation of the negative technical signs related to it, despite the expected correction due to its hold on and its attempt to test the support levels at 105.55.

Pivot point: 106.35


British Pound (GBPUSD)

The British Pound rose, supported by the decline of the US dollar on Wednesday, November 23, as most of the Fed’s members showed that they support slowing the pace of rate hikes soon.

The Sterling pound stabilizes above its pivot point at 1.2000, supported by the dollar’s decline.

Pivot point: 1.2000
