Strengthening of USD Positions

On Monday the greenback gained its positions versus major currencies traded in Forex market, from a string of recent declines after signals at the end of the week that CBs of different countries continued to carry out a policy of keeping their Interest Rates low for the near future. Technical analysis experts continue to expect that at some point signs of strength in the U.S. economy will be treated as positive for the nation's currency, ending an inverse relationship since the period of financial recession, where negative news performed a negative influence on purchasing the U.S Dollar.

The US currency also appreciated yesterday versus the EUR and Japanese Yen as Wall Street halted earlier gains and traders shifted their trading positions ahead of U.S. consumer and Housing data to be released this week. Solid U.S. data and probable reappointment of Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke pushed investors to carry out riskier transactions at the expense of the JPY and USD.
