The U.S Dollar is preforming very well against the high-yielding interest rate currencies, after the Feds announced “Operation Twist” to strengthen the U.S economy and fears of the debt crisis in the Eurozone spreading. The U.S Dollar broke 3 major resistance lines and hit the 1.0360 high, falling short of breaking the 1.0370 major resistance line.
The U.S Dollar is rallying against all majors, as the Feds move away from quantitative easing and focus on long-term interest rates. “Operation Twist” as dubbed by the Feds, has rallied the Dollar, investors are selling high-yielding currencies, and shifted the main focus back on the Eurozone debt crisis. The Sterling (GBP) has dropped significantly against the Dollar, 38 weeks low.
USD/JPY is once again on a strong downtrend, so far it has hit the 76.10 this morning. The U.S Federal Reserve decision of going through with a new round of quantitative easing is making investors nervous at this moment and selling the dollar (announcement hasn’t been made so far).
