Dollar Appreciates Today on Good Fundamentals

February 13, 2008 (Last updated on December 4, 2009) by

Dollar was almost unchanged versus euro today before some important to fundamental analysis indicators were released in U.S. EUR/USD opened at 1.4580 and made some moderate movements in both directions, but has been near the opening level before the statistics came out. Good data had an improving effect on dollar. It is now trading more than 30 pips below the opening price.

Advance figures for the retails sales in January were released today. They grew up by 0.3% instead of dropping the same value down, as the majority of the economists expected.

Business inventories in December were up 0.6% — a good result, considering 0.5% forecast and 0.4% growth in previous month.

U.S. crude oil inventories last week rose 1.1 million barrels, now they are in the middle of the average range for this time of the year. This is another consequential gain in oil inventories, which may curb oil prices again.
