USD Dollar (USD) – The Dollar strengthened against other major currencies after worse than expected US Retail Sales data which came out -1.2% vs. expected 0.3% pushed the Stock markets lower.

NASDAQ and Dow Jones rose by 1.12% and 0.38% respectively. Crude oil fell by -1.6% closing at 74.2$ a barrel. Gold (XAU) gained after falling 3 days in a row closing at 1226$ an ounce. No economic data is expected today.



EURO (EUR) The Euro traded almost unchanged versus the dollar and an improvement in Forex market sentiment helped the pair to reach weekly highs on Friday at 1.2154 but later it fell back to 1.21 levels.

Worse than expected data pushed the Sterling low after the Manufacturing Production came out -0.4% vs. expected 0.6% and the PPI Input came out -0.6% vs. expected -0.1%. Breaching above the 1.4740 levels might fuel a positive trend in the pair. Overall, GBP/USD traded with a low of 1.4502 and with a high of 1.4757. Today, the RICS House Price Balance is expected at 16% vs. 17% previously.



Japanese Yen (JPY) – The Dollar gained versus the Japanese Yen and back above the 91 level. The BSI Manufacturing Index came out 10 better than expected 7.8. Breaching above the 91.8 level might fuel a positive trend in the pair. Overall, USD/JPY traded with a low of 91.18 and with a high of 91.94. No economic data is expected today.



Canadian dollar (CAD) – The Canada’s dollar gaining was stopped after it gained 3 days in a row versus the American Dollar. Breaking the 1.0270 level might increase the Canadian dollar strength.

6. From your experience, what advice would you give a person who wants to enter the forex world?
My advice to the beginning trader entering the Forex world is as follows:
• Learn the market and understand what you’re getting into.
• Research and find the broker that suits your needs and wants. Look for a good offering but more importantly customer service, don’t go for the low rates offer without being certain they have a good customer service department. From my extensive experience in the Forex world your key to success will be your client-broker relationship. I can honestly say that at XForex they put an emphasis on servicing clients, which is so important.
