Senate Passes U.S. Tax Bill

Dear Traders,

The British pound ended the trading day unchanged against the U.S. dollar after it fell to a low near 1.3330. The greenback on the other side, strengthened against most of its peers Tuesday with the exception of the euro. Investors awaited the final votes on the U.S. tax-cut legislation with the House taking another vote on the tax bill this morning.

Once the tax bill is behind us, investors will assess how the bill will impact the U.S. economy in the longer run. While the dollar could receive some fresh boost as investors anticipate the tax bill to add growth in the near-term, the longer-term impact on the economy is less certain.

The EUR/USD broke above 1.1825 and rose towards 1.1850. Whether we will see a run for 1.19 remains to be seen and hinges on the risk appetite for euros amid the year-end liquidity drain. Above 1.1865 we expect further gains towards 1.1920.

The GBP/USD remained within a sideways trading range between 1.3420 and 1.3330.

BoE Governor Carney speaks at a Parliament Hearing in London today at 13:15 UTC. If the pound breaks above 1.3420 we anticipate further gains towards 1.3470. If the pound however drops below 1.3340 it could head for a re-test of the 1.33-support.
