Dollar Keeps On Rallying Amid Euro Weakness Forex Experts Report, Currency Prospects Defined

 

The dollar index, which is evaluating the USD value against a basket of 6 other major currencies, is still rallying actively. All in all, the USD index managed to gain 4,4% in September. This happened mainly at the expense of the common European currency, which accounts for the lion’s share of the index – some 50%. Apparently, the common European currency keeps on losing value amid disappointing economic figures coming from the Eurozone. At the same time, most traders and investors are anticipating another round of quantitative easing by the ECB in an effort to back the economic recovery in Europe, which is definitely going to exert some downward pressure on the common currency amid the fact that the Fed is about to taper QE3 to the end this month.

Forex: US Dollar Gains More Value VS Euro As Eurozone Cuts Lending

 

The Eurozone continued cutting its lending in August. The ECB is determined to reconsider its arsenal of measures used to reach the inflation target. With that said, the lending volume within the Eurozone's private sector shrank by 1,5% in August 2014 as opposed to August 2013. With that said, the pace of decline slowed down as compared to July's 1,6%. The lending decline has been seen for 28 months so far. This gives the ECB a signal to start stimulating it.

Forex Trend’s PAMM Indices Gain Stellar Weekly Profits - over 11,7%!

 

The year of 2014 seems to have projected the negative economic tendencies seen over the last few years following the global crisis. Indeed, these tendencies far from reassuring investors, financial experts and plain folks. Even though most of us have almost forgotten about the crisis in Greece, Spain and other Eurozone economies while the Fed is finally close to taper its QE3 to the end due to (seemingly) stronger economic performance in the USA, financial markets cannot still show relative stability while they are getting less and less predictable for an average person amid overall weakness of the global economy coupled with some geopolitical issues like the situation in Eastern Ukraine.
