US Finance Minister makes new comment on weak dollar

Posted 26 January, 2018

The greenback has reportedly resumed downward movement on Friday. It is not easy to reverse the negative trend in the US dollar. Specifically, the decline slowed down for a while after US President Donald Trump said that the message of the US Finance Minister about weak dollar had been taken out of the context. But the dollar has faced new pressure lately.

The greenback failed to get support even from the new statement of Steven Mnuchin. Specifically, today he commented that the previous statement about the slack dollar was not aimed at supporting US currency. The EUR-USD has resumed hiking facing the resistance at about 1.25.

In Europe, the US dollar is changing hands with a decline against the majors. The biggest upturn is posted by the sterling at 0.75%, followed by Australian dollar with 0.74% upturn. Euro gained 0.42%. With mainly stronger EUR cross pairs, the European currency can continue moving up at the American session. The price backed to 1.24 will boost bears signal on pin bar with high upper shadow observed at the Thursday daylight.
