The New Year has begun with the US Dollar continuing to fall and consequent gains for the Euro, the British Pound and commodities including copper and gold. Stock markets have begun the year mostly lower but with London’s FTSE 100 outperforming Germany’s DAX.
As usual in the first week of the month, purchasing managers’ indexes for the manufacturing and services sectors of the major economies will need to be watched carefully before the week ends with the latest US employment report.
