Forex Market Movers – November 2017

November 02, 2017

November starts with the Federal Reserve meeting that should lead to the rise of rates in the month of December.

November also takes note of the ECB decisions in terms of monetary policy. Draghi respected the expectations by halving the bond volume of Frankfurt in 2018 but extending the maturity. This has disappointed the market by contributing to weakening EurUsd, also thanks to the bad political situation in Catalonia.

It could be a much more volatile end of the year than what we have seen so far with emerging currencies that are beginning to suffer.

On the background, there is a widespread optimism on stock markets linked mainly to the growing expectations of Trump tax cuts.

Let’s now check the main macro data for November in each economic area.
