January 14, 2021 – Why is the oil market declining?

Yesterday, Brent quotes updated an almost annual maximum at $57.38 per barrel, but today the asset has dropped to $55.77.

The pressure on prices was exerted by data on changes in US oil product inventories. According to a report by the Energy Information Administration (EIA) of the US Department of Energy, crude oil inventories in the country fell by 3.2 million barrels for the week, while analysts predicted a decline of 3.8 million. A day earlier, API released a similar report, according to which oil reserves decreased by 5.8 million

The report from the EIA also showed that gasoline inventories rose by 4.4 million barrels, and distillate stocks by 4.8 million barrels, which was worse than forecasts (3.2 million and 2.8 million barrels, respectively).

Additional pressure on Brent came from the recovery of the US dollar in the Forex market. The USD Index, which measures the US currency against a basket of six major foreign exchange competitors, rose 0.3% on the day. The new US President Joe Biden will speak today. The head of the White House may announce new measures to support the economy, which will put pressure on the dollar and, as a result, lead to an increase in oil prices.

GBP/USD. 15.01 | Consolidation in the 1.36-1.37 price range

The GBP/USD pair continues to trade within the range of 1.36-1.37. The current quote is 1.3655.

Currently, the epidemiological situation in the UK continues to deteriorate. Moreover, on the eve of the country's Ministry of Transport announced the cancellation of flights with a number of South American states and Portugal after the discovery of a new strain of coronavirus in Brazil. Despite this, the British currency continues to trade in the area of ​​the recent two-year highs. The fact is that market participants still take into account the high probability of the introduction of negative rates by the Bank of England.

At the same time, the dollar is under pressure from the decline in Treasury yields and the weak report on claims for unemployment benefits, published yesterday. According to the US Department of Labor, the number of Americans who filed initial applications for unemployment benefits amounted to 965 thousand, more than the forecast of 795 thousand. During the day, the movement of the pair within the current price range will continue.

EUR/USD. January 18, 2021 – Euro continues to decline

The euro continues to decline against the dollar on Monday, reaching 1.2060. Weak economic statistics from the US, as well as uncertainty in the timing of the discussion of Joe Biden's stimulus program put pressure on risky assets.

It is noted that the package of measures to support the economy proposed by Biden includes direct payments to Americans in the amount of $1,400, a temporary increase in payments to the unemployed, and an increase in the minimum wage at the federal level to $15 per hour. However, experts believe that the new president will not be able to pass the stimulus plan in this form through Congress.

This week, all the attention of the markets will be drawn to the speech in the Senate of the former chairman of the Federal Reserve System Janet Yellen on Tuesday. Market participants expect that the country's new finance minister will make it clear that they are taking an approach in which the dollar should be determined by the market. This will mean that the Ministry of Finance does not intend to interfere with the dynamics of the national currency.

Today is a day off in the United States to celebrate Martin Luther King Day, so the pair will continue to trade weakly around 1.2080.

Brent. January 18, 2021 – The oil market continues to decline on Monday

On Monday, oil prices continued to decline, reaching $54.50 per barrel. Such dynamics was a consequence of the strengthening of the US dollar, as well as a decrease in traders' optimism amid an increase in the incidence of Covid in the world. However, statistics from China, showing GDP growth of 2.3% (more than forecast) and an increase in industrial production in December by 7.3%, limit the decline in oil prices today.

Experts note that the oil market has grown strongly lately, and the current decline is giving it some respite. The key event for the market in the near future will be the inauguration of the US President-elect Joe Biden and his further economic program.

Brent was also under pressure at the end of last week with data from the American oil service company Baker Hughes. The report reflected an increase in the number of operating oil rigs in the US last week by 12 units to 287 rigs. The number of work units has been increasing for eight consecutive weeks.

The current Brent quote is $54.80. During the day, we expect a slight recovery in the price to the $55 per barrel area.

EUR/USD. January 19, 2021 – The pair is awaiting Biden's inauguration

On Tuesday, the major currency pair started recovering from the 1.2050 area. The current quote EUR/USD is 1.2135.

Today the macroeconomic calendar is empty, but market participants have something to think over. For example, the results of the Reuters poll showed that the new stimulus package from the ECB is unlikely to have a positive impact on the European economy. In particular, we are talking about the already agreed PEPP package of 185 trillion euros, which was extended for another 9 months. Against the backdrop of such pessimistic opinions, the economic outlook for the eurozone looks rather bleak.

As for the United States, not everything is smooth here either. Former head of the Federal Reserve System Janet Yellen said that the US economy could find itself in a long and rather severe recession if Congress does not agree on additional support measures. Today, attention should be paid to Yellen's speech, which, as expected, Joe Biden intends to appoint the new head of the Federal Reserve System.

The inauguration of the new US President-elect Joe Biden will take place tomorrow. Market participants are waiting for this event, so the dynamics of trading today will not differ in activity.

January 19, 2021. Fundamental analysis of the oil market

The oil market, which has been growing steadily since the beginning of November last year (when the first news of successful trials of coronavirus vaccines appeared), is gradually losing its impetus. Having managed to rise from the $40 per barrel area to $57 from October to January, today oil is traded near the $55 per barrel level.

The January 2021 high at $57.5 was reached after Saudi Arabia unexpectedly announced its decision to unilaterally cut oil production in February and March (by 1 million barrels per day). Then the pandemic and its consequences on transportation and fuel demand again began to put pressure on quotations.

At the same time, some support for the prices of «black gold» is provided by the approval of Joe Biden as the new US president. Market participants expect that its measures to support the economy will raise inflation, which has increased the demand for oil from speculators and investors.

Taking into account the current fundamental background, it can be concluded that oil prices are unlikely to grow significantly in the near future. We believe that the range of fluctuations in Brent quotes will be represented by a corridor of $50-55 per barrel.

Today prices are rising slightly from the $55 level in anticipation of a report from the International Energy Agency (IEA). The experts of the organization intend to share their forecasts for the further dynamics of the market, taking into account the new lockdowns in many countries.

EUR/USD. January 20, 2021 – Euro continues to rise above 1.2150

On Wednesday, the euro continues to rise, reaching 1.2150. Yesterday, ex-head of the Federal Reserve System and future US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen made a speech, which market participants were looking forward to.

Yellen calmed the markets by assuring them of additional fiscal stimulus and promised not to interfere with the dynamics of the dollar. The politician also noted that in the post-crisis period, the United States needs a weak currency in competition and said that the Treasury Department will fight against attempts by other central banks to manipulate the exchange rates of national currencies.

Now, in order to reduce the rate of the single European currency, the ECB will have to somehow outplay the FRS, but the European regulator has long since exhausted the entire arsenal of stimulating instruments. The expansion of the QE program is unlikely to spur inflation, analysts say. Thus, with the strong weakening of the dollar and the ECB's inability to influence the euro rate, the EUR/USD pair has only a way up.

Today we should pay attention to the data on inflation in the eurozone. Deflation has been raging in Europe for four months now. And the final data on consumer prices should reflect their continued decline at the level of -0.3%, which will put significant pressure on the euro rate and allow the bears to return quotes to the level of 1.21.

An important event today will be the inauguration of Joe Biden and his first appearance as the new president of the United States.

USD/CAD. January 21, 2021 – Canadian dollar strengthens to 3-year highs

The USD/CAD currency pair on Thursday dropped to the level of 1.2600. The Canadian dollar strengthened to a maximum of three years after the announcement of the results of the meeting of the Bank of Canada.

As market participants expected, the regulator kept the interest rate unchanged at 0.25%. At the same time, it was announced that the rate would be near zero until at least 2023. The program of quantitative easing also remained unchanged, the volume of which currently amounts to 4 billion Canadian dollars per week.

The Central Bank also shared its forecasts for economic growth this year. Experts expect GDP growth in 2021 to be 4.0%, slightly below the previous forecast of 4.2%, while in 2022 and 2023 the economy will grow by 4.8% and 2.5%, respectively.

However, the «loonie» is showing growth, despite these expectations, as well as weak economic statistics. In particular, Canada's core CPI fell 0.4% in December after rising 0.2% in November, while CPI declined 0.2% after rising 0.1% a month earlier.

Considering all of the above, the pressure on the Canadian dollar should have increased, but the loonie unexpectedly strengthened to highs. Analysts regard such dynamics as a temporary phenomenon, and the pair's growth may continue at any minute. An additional factor that could put pressure on the «Canadian» is one of Joe Biden's first decrees to stop the construction of the Keystone XL oil pipeline, which was actively supported by the Canadian authorities.

GBP/USD. January 22, 2021 – Pound falls under pressure from economic publications

Yesterday the British pound fell to 1.3650, today the pair recovered to 1.3670.

Sterling looks pretty stable against the dollar, despite the local correction. The fact is that the currency finally got rid of the strong pressure from the Brexit risks and the confrontation between the politicians of the European Union and London.

At the same time, support for the currency today is also provided by successful vaccination in the UK against the background of a double lockdown, and perhaps the country's population will be able to return to their usual way of life in the second quarter.

Macroeconomic statistics are negative today for the pound: retail sales in December rose only 0.3%, worse than the forecast for growth by 1.2%. Composite PMI also fell short of the forecast: 40.6 points in January against expectations of 50.7 points. The business activity index in the manufacturing sector was 52.9 points (forecast - 57.3), and in the service sector – 38.8 points (forecast - 49.9).

Thus, at the end of the week sterling came under pressure from economic indicators. The RSI indicator is targeting the support area, which signals further currency weakening.

Brent. January 25, 2021 – Oil recovers after falling last week

Brent oil quotes are growing on Monday, approaching $56 per barrel. The current price is $55.72.

Last week ended with a fall in prices to $54.60 per barrel. The decline was driven by data on changes in US oil reserves. According to a published report from the Energy Information Administration, crude oil inventories rose 4.4 million barrels in the reporting week, reaching 486.6 million barrels. Analysts, on the other hand, had expected a decline in inventories by 1.3 million barrels from the previous week. Oil production in the United States remained unchanged at 11 million barrels per day.

Additional pressure on prices was also exerted by the increase in the number of cases of coronavirus in China. Experts note that the deterioration of the epidemiological situation in China will inevitably affect the demand for oil.

Today's growth in quotations was due to the news about the reduction in oil production in Iraq. It became known that the country intends to cut oil production in the first two months of this year in order to compensate for the violation of the terms of the OPEC + agreement from last year.

EUR/USD. January 25, 2021 – The dollar started the week with a decline

The main currency pair is trading at 1.2145 on Monday. The macroeconomic calendar for today is practically empty, attention should be paid only to the publication of the IFO business climate index in Germany. The indicator came out worse than forecast: 90.1 points in January against 92.2 in December and the forecast of 91.8 points.

The US dollar is now showing mainly a downward trend. The fact is that Joe Biden has already officially assumed the presidency of the United States, and the markets are waiting for the imminent introduction of additional measures to stimulate the economy. Therefore, the dollar in its «safe» status is no longer popular as investors intend to buy.

This week promises to be quite interesting. First, a meeting of the Federal Reserve System and a rate decision is scheduled. Market participants are confident that the rate will remain at the current level of 0-0.25% for a long time, however, the FRS comments will be of the greatest interest, which may become more optimistic.

Secondly, interesting statistics from the United States will be presented: the January consumer confidence index from the Conference Board, the US GDP for the IV quarter of 2020, the parameters of personal income and expenses of Americans, as well as data on the trade balance.

GBP/USD. January 26, 2021 – The pound is growing steadily after the release of strong statistics

The GBP/USD pair started the day with growth from 1.3600 to 1.3690. The sterling was supported by positive statistics on the labor market in the UK.

In particular, the average level of wages in the country in November rose by 3.6% against the previous figure of 2.8% and the forecast for growth by 2.9%. The number of applications for unemployment benefits in December fell to 7 thousand, while analysts predicted the figure at 35 thousand. Moreover, the unemployment rate rose to 5%, which was better than the forecast for growth to 5.1%. At the same time, experts note that the current unemployment rate has updated its maximum since the beginning of 2016.

In the US today, it is worth paying attention to the CB consumer confidence index. Analysts expect the indicator to rise from 88.6 to 89.0 points.

The RSI indicator is heading towards the resistance area, which signals further strengthening of the pound sterling during the day. The nearest target of the «bulls» is 1.3700, where the pair, however, will see some consolidation.

EUR/USD. January 27, 2021 – Euro declines on negative fundamental background

The EUR/USD pair demonstrates multidirectional trading dynamics on Wednesday, fluctuating in the 1.2100-1.2180 price range. The current quote for the pair is 1.2115.

The euro was under pressure from negative news from Europe. In particular, in Italy, Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte resigned, the index of business sentiment in Germany from IFO dropped again, and Angela Merkel in Germany said that the country's governance had gotten out of control and spoke about the need for stricter restrictions.

Pressure on the European currency is also exerted by Europe's lag behind the United States in the speed of vaccination. Pfizer says it is ready to ship 200 million vaccines to the United States by the end of May (or 2 months ahead of schedule). But the supply of vaccines to Europe is being delayed due to the problems of the Belgian manufacturer AstraZeneca.

Today, the first US Federal Reserve meeting this year will take place and a press conference by Jerome Powell, who is trying to assure the markets of maintaining the monetary policy of the regulator. However, many analysts interviewed are confident that the scale of the QE program needs to be scaled back this year. So, further dynamics of the pair will depend on the results of the meeting.

EUR/USD. January 28, 2021 – Euro continues to decline

The euro rate continues to decline on Thursday, the current quotation of the EUR/USD pair is 1.2080. Markets fear that existing vaccines will fail to cope with mutating Covid strains, endangering the prospects for global economic recovery.

Jerome Powell, whose press conference failed to clarify the topic of the Fed's further position and calm the markets, also added negative investors. Although the head of the regulator said that the Fed does not plan to cut QE and will make sure that investors know in advance about the systematic and gradual reduction in the volume of asset purchases. However, market participants did not see a negative assessment of the situation in the general tone of the speech, which provoked dollar purchases.

The euro is also declining in value after the ECB meeting on January 21. Then the regulator announced that it was ready to take action, as it was not satisfied with the high rate of the single currency. And the actions of the ECB are fully justified. According to IMF forecasts, the euro zone will be able to return to pre-crisis levels only by the end of 2022. For comparison, the Chinese economy has already outpaced 2019, and the US economy will return to the trend at the end of this year.

Thus, the pair's downside potential is quite high. During the day we expect further strengthening of the US dollar with the target of 1.2050.

January 28, 2021 – Oil market weakens on concerns about demand prospects

Oil prices began to decline on Thursday amid expectations of a drop in demand due to the continuing rise in the number of Covid-19 diseases and the current restrictive measures. The quotes were not helped either by the data on crude oil reserves in the United States published yesterday: according to the Ministry of Energy, reserves unexpectedly fell by 9.91 million barrels over the week. At the same time, gasoline stocks increased by 2.47 million barrels, while distillate stocks decreased by 815 thousand barrels. Analysts predicted an increase in oil reserves by 430 thousand barrels.

The current Brent quote is $55.18 per barrel. A myriad of concerns about the outlook for demand are putting strong pressure on prices. Moreover, the Chinese authorities are urging their citizens to stop traveling during the Lunar New Year holidays, which is the most active tourist season of the year. And this will inevitably lead to an additional decrease in demand.

Another factor in the weakening of the oil market was a sharp drop in traffic in Los Angeles over the past month due to restrictive measures in California.

EUR/USD. February 01, 2021 – Euro declines amid weak statistics

The EUR/USD pair closed last week with a rise to the 1.2150 area. The euro was supported by the GDP data of the leading eurozone countries. In particular, France's GDP growth in December was 23%, exceeding the projected increase by 19%. Spain's GDP in the IV quarter added 0.4%, while experts had expected a decline of 1.5%. Germany's GDP also remained in positive territory at 0.1%. In Germany, in addition, the unemployment rate fell to 6%.

However, today the pair started to decline, which is also explained by the reaction of traders to the latest macro statistics. According to the Federal Bureau of Statistics Destatis, retail sales in Germany were down 9.6% in December from the previous month.

At the same time, the US continues to discuss a new package of measures to help the economy, which puts general pressure on the dollar. Market participants believe that the project will be criticized by the Republicans, who are unhappy with the huge volume and want to reduce it to $600 billion. However, the Ministry of Finance and the Federal Reserve still insist on the need for new incentives. In this case, the pair's rate can rush to new highs.

EUR/USD. February 2, 2021 – Euro falls on weak data from Germany

The US dollar continues to trade near local highs in the 1.2050 area. Weak macroeconomic data from Germany put pressure on the European currency.

According to the European statistical agency Eurostat, unemployment in the region remained at 8.3% in December, in line with market expectations. At the same time, the volume of retail sales fell by 9.6% in December after growing by 1.1% a month earlier. Analysts had expected a 2.6% decline. On an annualized basis, sales growth was 1.5% against the forecast of 5%.

Today, the dynamics of the pair will be influenced by the report on the eurozone GDP. Analysts predict that the pace of economic decline in the region in the IV quarter should accelerate from -4.3% to -6.0%, which may provoke further sales of the single currency.

EUR/USD. February 3, 2021 – Euro near 2-month lows

The euro continues to decline paired with the dollar, reaching 1.20. The last time the single currency traded at such levels was at the beginning of December 2020. The weak rates of vaccination in Europe and the ECB's dissatisfaction with the high rate of the European currency remain negative factors for the euro. The regulator noted that it is closely monitoring the dynamics of the exchange rate and does not exclude a decrease in the rate on deposits, if this will help to accelerate inflation.

Macroeconomic indicators of the euro area are also not encouraging. Although earlier data on GDP for the IV quarter showed a decrease in the economy by 0.7% (q / q) and by 5.1% on an annualized basis, which turned out to be better than forecasts (a decrease by 0.9% and 5.4%, respectively).

Today we should pay attention to the report of the American labor market from ADP, as well as the index of business activity in the service sector ISM. Experts do not expect strong indicators, which may provoke a weakening of the dollar. Moreover, today's statistics may influence the decision in the Congress on incentives, which, if the package of assistance measures is approved, will entail further sales of the American currency.

EUR/USD. February 04, 2021 – Euro remains weak at 1.20

The EUR/USD pair continues to update local lows, trading below 1.20. Market participants continue to monitor forecasts for GDP growth in the eurozone and the United States, where European countries are clearly losing. Last week, worsened expectations for German GDP this year were published, and traders are now very attentive to any data from the FRG, projecting them to the entire eurozone as a whole.

Earlier Germany published the final data on the index of business activity in the service sector for January, where the indicator was 46.7 points against the previous level of 46.8. The same figure for the euro area rose to 45.4 points from the December value of 45.0.

The preliminary calculation of inflation in the euro area reflected an increase in the indicator by 0.9% (y/y), while the forecast assumed an increase of 0.6%. Core inflation in the region accelerated even more – by 1.4% y/y, while expected to rise by 0.9%.

At the same time, the US dollar was supported by yesterday's positive statistics from ADP. The January report on the number of jobs in the private sector showed an increase of 174 thousand against the forecast of 48 thousand. It should be assumed that tomorrow's report on the US labor market will also exceed the expectations of traders

EUR/USD. February 05, 2021 – Euro keeps updating new lows

The euro continues to decline at the end of the first week of February: the current quotation of the EUR/USD pair is 1.1950. The main pressure on the European currency rate is exerted by weak economic indicators from Europe and pessimistic forecasts regarding further economic recovery due to the preservation of lockdown regimes in some eurozone countries.

At the same time, the US dollar was supported by yesterday's data on the number of applications for unemployment benefits: the figure fell to 779 thousand against the forecast of 828 thousand and the previous value of 812 thousand. Such figures are a very positive signal for the American economy.

Today it is worth paying attention to the publication of data on the employment market for January. The forecast assumes that unemployment will remain unchanged at 6.7%, and the number of jobs outside the agricultural sector will increase by 85 thousand after a decline in December by 140 thousand. Average hourly wages may rise by 0.3% m/m after the previous growth of 0.8%. Thus, the stronger this statistic is, the more confident the dollar will feel.

GBP/USD. February 08, 2021 – Sterling holds positions in highs

Quotes of the GBP/USD pair have continued to trade in a wide range of 1.3560-1.3760 for three weeks already. The current quote for the pair is 1.3700.

The pound managed to move away from the lows last week after the Bank of England meeting. The regulator said that the nationwide lockdown, which will last for almost two months, will have no impact on the economic outlook in the future, and the UK GDP will recover by the first quarter of 2022.

Moreover, the regulator noted that there is some discomfort from an overly inflated balance sheet, and this raises expectations of a faster decline in government bond purchases. This speaks of the likely further tightening of the monetary policy of the Central Bank, which will inevitably lead to a strengthening of the British currency.

Today the macroeconomic calendar is empty, so the pair will continue to trade near the 1.3700 level.

EUR/USD. February 08, 2021 – Consolidation just above the 1.20 level

On Monday, the euro is falling moderately after the publication of economic reports from the euro area. In particular, the Sentix index of investor confidence in the eurozone economy in February fell by 0.2 points against the forecasted growth of 1.9 points. Industrial production in Germany in December remained at the level of November, while analysts had expected an increase of 0.3%.

Last Friday, it became known that the US Senate passed a bill allowing the adoption of a $1.9 trillion stimulus plan proposed by President Joe Biden without Republican support. This suggests that the final version of the stimulus bill may be agreed upon in March.

At the same time, weak statistics on the US employment market only accelerates the process of agreeing on the aid package. In January, the unemployment rate fell to 6.3% from 6.7% earlier, but this is where all the positive ends. Only 49 thousand new jobs were created outside the agricultural sector, with a forecast of an increase of 85 thousand.Average hourly wages in January grew by only 0.2% m / m against the forecast of growth by 0.3% and growth by 1.0 %.

The current quote for the EUR/USD pair is 1.2020. The macroeconomic calendar is empty for today, so the instrument will continue to move almost horizontally in the area just above 1.20.

EUR/USD. February 09, 2021 – Euro is stable around 1.2100

The euro continues to trade in the area of ​​local highs near 1.2100. The European currency is growing, despite weak statistics from the eurozone. Sentix investor confidence index in February fell to -0.2 points against 1.3 in January. At the same time, the forecast assumed an increase to 4.1 points.

Data from Germany also turned out to be worse than forecasted: the statistics on industrial production reflected a zero change in the indicator against the forecast of growth by 0.1% m/m and the previous fact of increase by 1.5%.

So, we can say that the EUR/USD pair is growing mainly due to the general weakness of the US dollar in the Forex market. The American currency is weakening amid the process of adopting the stimulus package in the United States. Some days before, a bill was passed to approve Joe Biden's $1.9 trillion anti-crisis program without Republican support in the Senate.

Today the macroeconomic calendar is empty, so the pair will move moderately near the 1.2100 level.

EUR/USD. February 10, 2021 – Euro consolidated above 1.2100

The EUR/USD pair continues to trade above 1.2100 and is not going to give up the pace for now. The current quote for the pair is 1.2125. There were very few macroeconomic statistics on Monday and Tuesday, it is worth noting only the data on the index of optimism in small business in the United States. The indicator fell to 95.0 points, while analysts predicted growth to 96.6.

Today, all the attention of the markets is drawn to the publication of data on inflation in the US for January. The significance of this report is quite large: it will either give the White House an excuse to speed up the process of agreeing on the aid package, or it will allow it to take the time to make important decisions.

Analysts expect the US CPI to rise 0.3% mom, after rising 0.4% in December. Core inflation in January could have increased by 0.2% MoM after increasing by 0.1% in December.

In the evening hours, you should pay attention to the speech of the head of the US Federal Reserve System Jerome Powell. It is expected that the politician will give his assessments to the published statistics on inflation and touch on some of the nuances of the regulator's monetary policy.

EUR/USD. 11.02 | European currency continues to dominate

The euro/dollar continues to maintain potential for growth: the current quotation of the pair is 1.2125.

Inflation statistics were released yesterday: US CPI rose 0.3% mom in January, in line with forecasts after expanding 0.4% mom in December. Annual inflation is estimated at 1.4% against 1.5% earlier. The core consumer price index did not change at the beginning of the year.

The head of the US Federal Reserve System also made a speech yesterday. Jerome Powell noted that plans for a global stimulus remain unchanged. This suggests that nothing threatens interest rates for a long time. Moreover, the regulator hinted that inflation could exceed the target level of 2%, and this is quite acceptable, since the economy should try to grow on its own.

Today the macroeconomic calendar is not rich in publications. Attention should be paid only to the weekly report on the number of applications for unemployment benefits, which may support the position of the greenback.

GBP/USD. February 11, 2021 – The pair is stable above 1.38 level

On Thursday, the pound declines moderately from highs near 1.3870 to 1.3800.

The recent strengthening of the British currency was supported by the growing demand for risky assets and the general weakening of the US dollar amid expectations of a decision on fiscal stimulus. Market participants are almost certain that the program proposed by Joe Biden will get approval in Congress anyway, despite the resistance of the Republicans, who demand a reduction in the aid package.

The dollar is also under pressure after Jerome Powell's speech yesterday. The head of the Fed said that it may take years for the full recovery of the labor market, as the consequences of the pandemic turned out to be more devastating than initial forecasts. Powell also noted that the regulator does not intend to abandon the course of super-soft monetary policy.

Today the macroeconomic calendar is not rich in publications. Attention should be paid only to the data on the number of initial applications for unemployment benefits in the United States. And tomorrow will be published reports on the dynamics of British GDP and industrial production data. The economy is expected to grow 0.5% qoq in Q4 2020. Industrial production may show the same growth of 0.5% in December last year.
