The EUR/USD pair remains under pressure at the end of this week as political turmoil between the Spanish and the Catalan governments weighs the common currency. Currently the major currency pair is trading in the region of 1.1850, having recovered some pips. However, euro bulls looks exhausted today, as investors are still digesting Catalan Separatists election victory, which in near future may negatively affect the Spanish political climate. However, post-Catalan vote momentum may appear limited, as now investors await for fresh developments from the Spanish political area. Today the EU data calendar won’t bring us anything noteworthy, while the US will publish a slew of important economic indicators, which will bring fresh trading opportunities during the NA session.
The GBP/USD pair follows broad market trend and consolidates its positions in the region of 1.3370-90 at the beginning of European session. However, there are still few driving factors, which most likely will continue navigating the pair throughout this Friday. First, slightly increased demand for the US dollar is one of the main drivers, which is dominating the market, thus keeping the pair under pressure. On the other hand, notable drawdown of EUR/GBP cross, triggered by the Catalan election outcome, provides some correlational support to pound that is limiting further retreat of GBP/USD. Now all traders’ eyes are remaining glued to UK GDP readings, which will help the pair to form its short-term trajectory during European trades, while important US data will also be able to attract investors’ attention later today.
The USD/CAD pair consolidates its positions in the area of 1.2740 at the end of this week after yesterday’s sharp retreat, caused by positive results of the Canadian economy. On Thursday, the pair lost more than a cent, dropping below the level of 1.27, as Canada’s core retail sales and inflation numbers came above market’s expectations, thus allowing the BoC to continue its monetary policy tightening course. However, the pair managed to correct higher on the back of increased demand for the US dollar, which is the main driving factor across the market this Friday. Looking ahead, today we will have pretty busy session, as both economies have prepared pack of important data, which will be released during the NA session.
Bitcoin gone into free fall. The BTC/USD pair extends its retreat, having refreshed its 2-week lows in the region of 12,000.00, while losing more than 30% from its record highs reached during last weekend at the level of 19,850.00. There were no obvious catalysts behind the current collapse, however, it seems that markets decided to take some profits off the table on the eve of the end of the year. Moreover, aggressive sell-off of the digital currency triggered a temporary stop of trading bitcoin futures on US-based exchanges CME and Cboe that additionally accelerated recent pair’s fall. By the moment of writing, the BTC/USD pair was trading at 12,780 mark, while the market capitalization of the world’s largest cryptocurrency dropped to the level of 229 billion USD, by the data, available at coinmarketcap.com.
