Daily F.X. Analysis, Oct 14 – Top Trade Setups In Forex – Happy Thanksgiving Day! 

The US Dollar is considered as the biggest rival of the Euro, and these currencies often see a negative correlation. Another reason behind the Euro’s strength last week was the weakness of the US Dollar. Michel Barnier, the EU negotiator on Friday, said that UK has accepted that the Custom border cannot be erected as a solution to the backstop, and both sides were racing to reach a deal before EU Summit next week. US Dollar showed weak performance last week after the release of minutes from the Fed’s previous meeting, which showed a surprising split in tone among officials. Fed in the last month cut its bank rate by quarter points.  The minutes revealed that some officials were against the bank rate cut, and some wanted an aggressive rate-cut. The speculations that the Fed will be more dovish next month made US Dollar wear. Overall, the banks will be closed in observance of Thanksgiving Day today.  Economic Calendar – Thanksgiving Day     BTC/USD – Daily Analysis The Bitcoin traders were excited to see Bitcoin had suddenly dropped the $8,600 resistance to break over $8,800 in less than an hour.

Very light trading activity had occurred until late Sunday trading

The U.S. Federal Reserve policymakers were intensely divided over whether to cut interest rates. Minutes from the two-day meeting published yesterday on Wednesday revealed policymakers’ final decision to reduce the central bank’s benchmark interest rate by a quarter percentage point carried more opposition than was displayed in the rate-setting panel’s 8-2 vote, published after the meeting adjourned on July 31.
