USD Dollar (USD) – The Dollar continues to advance versus the other major currencies in Forex trading, after Friday’s better than expected U.S. jobs data eased pressure on the Dollar in the wake of the Federal Reserve’s asset purchase plan announcement. The NASDAQ fluctuated around zero and the Dow Jones decreased by 0.33%. Crude oil strengthened by 0.2%, closing at $ 87.06 a barrel, the highest price in two years. Gold (XAU) rose by 0.4%, closing at $1403.20 an ounce, a new historic record. No major news is expected today.

Euro (EUR) – The Euro fell for a second day versus the Dollar amid concern that some governments in the region will struggle to pay their debt, curbing demand for European assets. The EUR/USD has broken the 1.4000 level and has been trading below it since yesterday. As long as the price is below this level, a short position is preferred. Overall, EUR/USD traded with a low of 1.3887 and with a high of 1.4085. Today, German Final CPI is expected to remain at 0.1%.
