Hello Its Monday November 14th, and I’m Nathalie
Woods with UFX Markets daily news. The US Dollar fell versus most majors as euro-zone
fiscal tensions declined due to the approval of the debt reduction crisis by the Italian
Senate In a bid to cut the country’s debt of 1.9 trillion. Wall Street closed positive
as the NASDAQ plunged by 2.04% and the Dow Jones by 2.19%. Crude oil rose, capping the
longest streak of weekly advances since April 2009 by 1.1%, closing at $98.90 a barrel.
Gold rose by 1.60% closing at $1788 an ounce. The Euro strengthened for a third day versus
the US Dollar amid optimism that European leaders are tackling their debt crisis after
Italy’s Senate approved an austerity bill yesterday and Greece swore in a new prime
minister. In addition, the higher-yielding currencies extended gains as former European
Union Competition Commissioner Mario Monti may lead Italy’s new government. The momentum
of the EUR/USD is still bullish as long as it is remains above the 1.3650 support level.
