Country Comments
EUR EUR/USD is trading at 1.0731, up +0.29% on the day, having posted a daily high at 1.0754 and low at 1.0693. The shared currency battles a rogue bird as the Brexit saga continues on the UKs ongoing hard negotiation scheme. As many market analysts mentioned in 2017 politics take over valuable data, which moves investors and traders to focus on body language and colloquial statements by those in power. Mays plans seem to look for further support far away from those willing to re-negotiate, but only time can serve the results of such action when heading to shake hands with a unique and unpredictable character as Donald Trump.
JPY The Dollar-Yen pair retreated from the session high of 113.14 levels to trade largely unchanged on the day around 112.63 levels. US President Trump has withdrawn from TPP and that could rattle the risk sentiment. Ahead in the day, the demand for the Japanese Yen depends on how the equity markets react to the rising threat of protectionism. US existing home sales data and Richmond Fed manufacturing index could influence the dollar side of the story.
GBP GBP/USD is trading at 1.2533, up 0.23% on the day, having posted a daily high at 1.2547 and low at 1.2501. GBP/USD has popped higher as the dollar continues to unwind on a day where Trump is driving fear into investors with uncertainty around his policies, some of which he has already started to implement and is being more vocal about, especially trade.
CHF USD/CHF was trading at 0.9976.
KWD The Central Bank of Kuwait changed its dinar around a mid-point of 0.30480 per dollar.

EUR European stocks closed in the red Monday as equity investors got their first chance to react to President Donald Trumps inauguration speech, seen as taking a protectionist tone. The Stoxx Europe 600 fell 0.4% to finish at 361.01, dropping for a third straight session. The index on Friday closed down by 0.1% ahead of Trumps address in Washington, D.C., sending the pan-European benchmark 0.9% lower for the week.
JPY Asian shares were lacking direction early Tuesday, as the overnight decision by the U.S. to pull out of a regional trade pact, as well as increased protectionist rhetoric, have largely been priced in by the market. Australias S&P/ASX 200 was up 0.4%, while Hong Kongs Hang Seng Index added 0.3%. The Nikkei Stock Average seesawed but was last down 0.1%, and Koreas Kospi fell 0.2%. On Monday, President Donald Trump officially withdrew his country from the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a 12-nation trade deal that he claimed would have cost the country its jobs. The move fulfills one of his main campaign pledges. However, of more concern to Asia was Trumps promise to impose a very major border tax on companies that move some operations overseas, a move that could also impact imports.
GBP Dollar sells off after new U.S. presidents inauguration speech, helping lift sterling U.K. stocks fell Monday, losing ground while the British pound strengthened, as investors digested Donald Trumpsprotectionist tone at his inauguration as the 45th president of the United States. The FTSE 100 lost 0.7% to close at 7,151.18, with only the basic materials group rising. Mondays open was the first opportunity for investors to react to Trumps speech, as the inauguration came after the close of Friday trading.
KWD The Kuwait stock exchange is currently at 6,679.62
USD Major stock indexes closed slightly lower Monday as a slide in crude oil prices pulled down energy companies. Investors pored over the latest crop of company earnings and deal news. High-dividend stocks did better than the rest of the market as bond yields fell, making those sectors more appealing to investors seeking income. The Dow Jones industrial average fell 27.40 points, or 0.1 percent, to 19,799.85. The Standard & Poors 500 index slid 6.11 points, or 0.3 percent, to 2,265.20.
