    Forex- Dollar Inches Down After Trump Comments on Fed

    The U.S. dollar fell on Friday after U.S. President Donald Trump criticized the Federal Reserve for increasing interest rates but was still on target for a second week of gains. The U.S. dollar index, which measures the greenback’s strength against a basket of six major currencies, was down 0.15% to 94.84 as of 5:36 AM ET (9:36 GMT). Despite the dip, the dollar was on target for a second straight week of gains and has risen more than 5% in the last three months due to expectations that interest rates will rise.

    GBP/USD Price Forecast – British pound breaks through major support

    The British pound broke down during the day on Thursday, slicing through the vital 1.30 level. This is an area that I have been paying attention to for some time now, and the fact that we broke through there is a very negative sign indeed.

    Rising Two-Year Treasury Yields Indicate No Worries Over Trade Disputes

    Look at the price action in the Treasury markets for the true assessment of the economy rather than to try to make a financial decision based on politics or what Trump said or did like others.
