Forex News | Further environment speaks for dollar

We wish our readers a Merry Christmas and all the best for 2019.

For us, the factors that speak for the dollar continue to predominate.Most important for our forecast is the outlook for further increases in US interest rates, while in the euro zone the first interest rate step could be taken in September 2019 at the earliest.

As long as geopolitical tensions don't ease substantially, pressure on the yen to appreciate against the euro should persist.

Even thoug fundamentals continue to favor a depreciation of the Swiss franc, it will probably still take some time before they manage to assert themselves in the markets.
