Those that remained weak are the Euro and Yen while the Sterling and commodity currencies matched against the dollar. The interest rate of Swiss Central Bank was cut to -0.25% in order to make Swiss Franc less marketable. This showed that the Central Bank is determined to hold a level of 1.20 EUR/CHF that is being proved as investors went to Franc to safe-haven the requirements.
Sterling is the leading currency for a period of two months in a row since November retail sales was at a higher level than it was expected and this growth spurt was due to the Black Friday promotion. 6.4 % was the yearly growth rate showing the highest rate in the past 10 yearswhereby the growth rate from the bank of England increased too though the average price decreased to 2% due to disinflation in the UK.
The Shanghai Composite ended up with 0.11% lower to 3057 and ASX 200 bounced 0.95% to 5210 in the stock market. The Nikkei got 2.32% which was motivated by the decrease of the yen. When the statement of Yellen was passed and Fed was not willing to increase the rate early, the Western Stock Markets were in a green sea. The German DAX HAD 2.79% and French CAC index speeded up to 3.35% and the UK FTSE bounded 2%. Majority of the US market gathered more than 2%. The S&P closed 2.4% more to 2961. The Nasdaq Composite Index increased from 2.24% to 4748 while the Dow moved from 2.43% to 4748.
The 2014 market wrap report will resume in the beginning of 2015. The US Dollar will remain the main currency trend in the year 2015 while the Yen and the Euro are expected to be among the weak parties in the majors. Most of the goods and their currencies will be under pressure. The cost of oil will be low leading to instability of the up-coming nations including Venezuela and Russia but the result will emerge globally.
