Dollar recovering

Economic releases from Japan mostly printed on the negative side, which didn’t stop the bulls from gravitating toward the low yielding yen amind an increase in overall risk reversion.

Japan’s household spending surprisingly revealed a decrease in December, as annualized retails sales soared higher than popularly expected.

In the meantime, the unemployment rate increased to 2.8% in December. However, the jobs-to-applicants raion improved to 1.59.

As for forex markets, the dollar was in the spotlight today, partly thanks to profit-taking ahead of this week FOMC statement and Trump’s first state of the Union address.

POTUS will most likely be talking about his market-friendly policies in regards to lower trade barriers for American exports; infrastructure plans and an endorsement for a stronger dollar.

RIsk aversion seems to be the dominating them among Asian equities, commodity prices and high-yielding currencies, with the Nikkei closing lower by 1.43% at 23,291.97.

As for commodities,  crude futures fell 1.04% to $64.88 a barrel, while Brent inched down 0.72% to $68.69 a barrel.

Outlook:

Going ahead, investors would focus on UK’s net consumer credit and mortgage approvals data, both for December, slated to release in a few hours.
