U.S. Dollar Falls On Healthcare Reform Failure

Dear Traders,

Yesterday’s trading was quiet for most of the day and both of our currency pairs fluctuated within narrow trading ranges. The big move occurred during the Asian session after two Republican senators said they oppose the Trump-backed healthcare reform bill, leaving it with insufficient votes for passage. The U.S. dollar fell sharply on signs the U.S. healthcare reform bill is effectively dead in its current form. Investors appear to be losing confidence in U.S. President Trump’s ability to deliver, not just on healthcare but on the rest of his revitalization agenda too.

EUR/USD surged to a high of 1.1538 and traders wonder whether the euro is on its way toward higher targets at 1.1565 and 1.1620. Let’s be surprised.

The German and Eurozone ZEW Survey are due for release at 9:00 UTC and could have a short-term impact on the euro.

GBP/USD rose in tandem with the greenback’s opponents and climbed back above 1.31. Whether the pound is able to maintain its high level remains to be seen but once 1.3120 is significantly broken, the chances are in favor of further bullish momentum. If the cable falls back below 1.3040 it could head for a test of the 1.30-support.

The U.K. Consumer Price Report scheduled for release at 8:30 UTC receives most attention and should be watched closely.
