Evergreen buck stabilizes notwithstanding weaker-than-anticipated Q4 GDP data

Evergreen buck stabilizes notwithstanding weaker-than-anticipated Q4 GDP data

On Friday, the evergreen buck stabilized in Asia even after data revealed a weaker-than-anticipated fourth quarter GDP data.

Estimating the purchasing value of the US dollar versus its primary peers the USD index shot up by about 0.1% reaching 96.773.

The Commerce Department informed on Thursday that American GDP tacked on at a 2.2% annualized rate during the October-December period. Market experts had hoped for a 2.4% leap.

The evergreen buck was little influenced by the publication of the data due to the fact that yesterday’s tumble in the British pound backed the US currency.

The dive in the UK currency occurred after the British legislative body didn’t manage to pass any bills, which were alternatives to Theresa May’s Brexit deal.

May intends to ask British lawmakers to vote on one part of her Brexit proposal, the Withdrawal Agreement, setting out the terms of Britain’s departure from the European bloc for the transition period.

The European bloc told it would only grant a Brexit delay until May 22 on the condition the British lawmakers have the deal approved. If they fail, Brexit is going to be postponed only until April 12.

Yesterday, Theresa May told that she would reside if her proposal is approved.

The currency pair GBP/USD jumped by 0.2% ending up with 1.3068.

Meanwhile, on the China-US trade front, White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow told that the current US presidential administration is ready to resume talks with China to finally come to a compromise. He added that America might lift some of the levies on China’s exports, but not all of them.

The currency pair USD/CNY slumped by 0.2% showing 6.7231.

The currency pair USD/JPY jumped by 0.1% trading at 110.76.

As for AUD/USD and NZD/USD, both pairs rallied by 0.1%.
