Current trend

On Thursday, the pair managed to break the downward trend formed at the end of last week.

Yesterday, the US dollar strengthened against the background of positive data on the labor market and ignored the slowdown in the real estate market in July and the decline in the business activity index in August. Moreover, yesterday the United States raised tariffs, in particular, on motorcycles produced, railway cars, and steam turbines in China. The PRC responded with duties on American cars, buses, coal, and other goods. The new restrictions came into effect amid the ongoing negotiations in Washington, which is also an argument in favor of strengthening the USD.

Today at 16:00 (GMT+2) the Fed head Jerome Powell will speak at the symposium in Jackson Hole. He will deliver a report on monetary policy in a changing economy. The market also awaits the regulator's comments on the latest critical statements of President Trump.
