The market is waiting for news
 
1.png
 
The absence of important fundamental statistics from both the US and the euro zone is forcing investors to take on a wait-and-see attitude. This is forming the side channels of the markets, especially in pairs with the euro and the British pound in it. 
 
This week, all attention of traders will be directed towards the two-day symposium of the Fed which will begin on August 24. It is expected that the main figure will be the president of the European Central Bank, Mario Draghi. It is believed that Draghi will shed light on the further actions of the bank in relation to its bond purchasing program. 
 
It should be noted that it was at the same conference in 2014 that Mario Draghi justified the need to start the quantitative easing program in the euro area. He also announced the measures to be taken in order to increase inflation. 
 
It is therefore possible that Draghi, speaking at the Fed symposium in Jackson Hole, will also announce the reduction of the mentioned program above. 
 
If the ECB president does not touch upon this topic during his speech, the attention of investors will switch to the meeting in September. Here, it is expected that the European Central Bank may announce the reduction of the quantitative easing program. As several leading world economists suggest, this can be done in two stages. In September, the ECB will announce the official reduction of the program. In October, concrete steps to carry this out will be announced. 
 
As for the fundamental data, here are the happenings. At the end of last week, it became known that the surplus of the euro zone's current account for the balance of payments for the month of June fell. 
 
This is bad news for the European Central Bank. Thus, the current account surplus of the euro area's balance of payments totaled to 21.2 billion euros following the data of 30.5 billion euros last May. The positive balance of trade in goods rose to 27.4 billion euros while the positive balance of trade in services fell to 2.2 billion euros. 
 
There was a temporary support for the US dollar at the end of last week caused by the data on the indicator of consumer sentiment in the US. The data showed an increase for the first half of August. According to the data provided, the preliminary index of consumer sentiment in August 2017 rose to 97.6 points against 93.4 points in July. Economists predicted that the preliminary index in August will be 94.5 points. 
 
The Canadian dollar rose sharply against the US dollar, continuing its trend that was formed in the middle of the week. 
 
Demand remained after the publication of good inflation data which grew for the month of July this year in Canada. 
 
According to the report, Canada's consumer price index in July 2017 increased by 1.2% compared to the same period last year. Core inflation in July rose to 1.5% against 1.4% in June.

Brent says goodbye to summer
 
Futures prices for the North Sea Fort continue to consolidate in the range of $50-54 per barrel amid uncertainty about further dynamics of global oil reserves. On one hand, the information from PetroLogistics about the reduction of OPEC production volume by 419,000 bpd in August and the decrease in the cartel's exports by 750,000 bpd, as well as the continuing peak of US stocks give grounds to assert that the ball in the market. The "bulls" rule, on the other hand, shows that investors greatly think about the question: what will happen when the summer is over? 
 
From the level of the March highs, black gold reserves in the USA decreased by 13%, to 466 million barrels. Nevertheless, US production has risen to a level of 9.5 million b/d, the highest since July 2015. But there is a decrease in rigs by 5 per week indicated by signals on August 18, showing a gradual slowdown in the growth rate of the indicator in the future. These processes are seasonal in nature and are associated with the dynamic activity of car enthusiasts, which increases the demand for gasoline. The question is that when the car season is over, will this become the basis for the growth of stocks? If so, the gains of the bulls on Brent and WTI may be in the past. 
 
The dynamics of US oil reserves and quotations WTI
 
analytics599c16b37ad8c.png
 
Source: Bloomberg. 
OPEC has the same scenario as mentioned above, although, with regard to the cartel, it is necessary to talk about other time horizons. The agreement to cut production by 1.8 million bpd will end in March 2018, and now it is untimely to talk about its prolongation in November, which is accomplished by Kuwait's oil minister Essam al-Marzouq . Perhaps, he is trying to create a new growth driver for black gold, but it is expected to be done after the due date. Meanwhile, investors' attention is focused on the dynamics of US stocks and production. According to the forecasts of Bloomberg experts, the first indicator will continue to decline by -3.5 million barrels. However, as noted above, the efficiency of the seasonal factor captured the minds of participants in market battles. 
 
Uncertainty and speculation in conditions when some players are on vacation, which allows us to talk about the thin market and lead to sharp movements of prices in different directions. So, the data from the CFTC stating that speculators cut the net-long by WTI for the second week in a row (-5 688, or 2% of the net long position in 274,441 contracts) became the reason for sharp oil sales. 
 
In favor of consolidation development, the stabilization of the US dollar price also speaks. It crosses below the turning point of strong macroeconomic statistics and political risks. So far, further movement seems directionless. 
 
Technically, the breakthrough of the upper border of the inner bar near the $53 mark per barrel will increase the risks of continuing the northern Brent march in the upstream trading channel. On the contrary, the return of prices to the lower border of the domestic bar at $51.3, with the successful consecutive tests on the diagonal support, is expected for a development of correction in the direction of at least $50 per barrel.

The Euro continued its correction
 
analytics59a621237e20f.png
 
The euro did not take advantage of the chance to rise against the US dollar after the release of good data on inflation in Germany and the index of sentiment in the euro area economy. 
 
According to the report of the statistics agency, the consumer price index harmonized in accordance with the EU standards in Germany increased by 1.8% in August this year compared to the same period in 2016, while economists expected growth of only 1.7%. Compared to July, inflation increased by 0.1%, fully coinciding with the forecast. As a rule, low prices for energy carriers continue to create the main problem. 
 
Despite the fact that all values are still preliminary, traders were disappointed by the rather weak indicators and core inflation. 
 
However, there are also positive moments. According to the report, the growth of salaries in Germany sharply accelerated in the second quarter of this year. So, in comparison with the second quarter of 2016, salaries increased by 3.8%. From this, we can conclude that a sharp drop in the unemployment rate did not seriously affect the wage index, which is a good indicator for the economy. 
 
Data on sentiment in the euro area economy also supported the euro in the morning. According to the report of the statistical agency, the index of sentiment in the economy of the eurozone in August this year rose to 111.9 points against 111.3 points in July. Economists had expected the index to remain unchanged. 
 
The US labor market and the economy are in perfect order, which was reflected in the quotes of the EUR/USD pair, which declined after the report on changes in the number of employees from ADP. 
 
The number of jobs in the private sector in the US in August this year increased by 237,000, while economists expected growth of only 185,000 jobs. Data for July were revised upward, to 201,000.

Brent made friends with hurricanes
 
Hurricane Harvey did not bring happiness, but this disaster helped the "bulls" in the North Sea and saved them by catching the straw, instead of forcing them to flee the battlefield. The experts of Bloomberg predicted that the US black gold reserves will grow by 2.5 million barrels by the end of the week by 1 September, while the Goldman Sachs announced that it will reach 40 million barrels within a month as the hurricane ends. The oil became a more serious driver of growth which returned refinery to life.
 
ExxonMobil, Phillips 66, Valero Energy and others reported about the resumption of refining operations. As of September 5, factories with a capacity of 3.8 million b/s (about 20% of the total value for the States) were closed, while at the height of the hurricane it was about 4.2 million b/s capacity. According to the US Energy Information Administration, the continuation process can take several days or weeks. Everything will depend on the damage found at the time of the resumption.
 
Along with the return to life of the oil refinery, oil has another important hidden driver of growth as the domestic energy increased its demand among the states affected by Harvey. The White House asked the Congress for about $ 7.9 billion in aid to Texas and Louisiana for restoration work, which is regarded as a "bullish" factor for black gold.
 
However, Goldman Sachs claims that the potential growth of oil is limited, as the current situation is likely to take advantage of mining companies from the States. The possible price hike will increase the hedging of price risks and production volumes, which will affect the global balance of the physical asset market and the futures market. The bank draws attention to the fact that companies have significantly reduced costs in recent years, and the level of revenue showed a growth in profits. This position corresponds to the opinion of the Alexander Novak, Minister of Energy of Russia, saying that in 2018 Brent will cost $45-55 per barrel.
 
Corrections to the current alignment of forces can make another hurricane. Irma is moving in the direction of Florida, but it is impossible that its impact will be more serious for the US oil industry than Harvey's influence.
 
Brent and WTI gained support from the weak dollar. The dovish statement of Lael Brainard and Neel Kashkari reduced the potential increase of the federal funds rate in December to 37%. The growth of geopolitical risks related to North Korea put pressure on the yields of US Treasury bonds by pushing futures for the North Sea grade to the maximum levels since May.
 
Dynamics of oil and the dollar index
 
analytics59afeb3b578be.png
 
Source: Trading Economics. 
 
Technically, the "bulls" renewed July highs of Brent along with the activation of the AB = CD pattern increase the risks of continuing the northern campaign towards the target at 127.2% and 161.8%. This corresponds to $54.7 and $56 per barrel. On the contrary, the inability of buyers to keep prices above the levels of $53.7 and $52.9 will indicate weakness.

Draghi moved the answers to late autumn
 
1504791603_1.png
 
The European currency strengthened its position against the US dollar after the press conference of the president of the European Central Bank, which took place immediately after the regulator left its interest rates unchanged. 
 
However, it should be noted that the growth of the euro was more restrained than many analysts had predicted. Basically this was due to the fact that specific deadlines or measures regarding the repurchase program of the bonds were not announced. 
 
During the speech ECB President Draghi, he said that rates will be at current levels for a long period, and in the framework of quantitative easing, the ECB will buy assets of 60 billion euros a month until December 2017 or longer, if necessary. 
 
As for the specific time frames, the ECB President said that this fall, it will be decided when to adjust the parameters of the policy next year. This leaves room for further strengthening of the euro in the medium term, therefore it would be wrong to talk of any major downward correction in the EURUSD pair. The market reaction associated with buying the euro in the current situation speaks for itself. 
 
Mario Draghi also drew attention to the fact that the economic recovery seems strong and large-scale, and the available information confirms that the prospects for economic growth remain the same. 
 
Draghi very mildly expressed concern regarding the exchange rate of the European currency, saying that the recent volatility of exchange rates is a source of uncertainty that requires observation. Some analysts predicted today that there will be verbal intervention by the president of the European Central Bank, aimed at weakening the rate of the single European currency. 
 
The ECB President also drew attention to the fact that when deciding on monetary policy, the central bank will have to take into account the exchange rate. 
 
As for inflation, according to Draghi, the core index has grown slightly, but a very significant monetary stimulus is still needed. 
 
Data on the labor market slightly supported the US dollar, as the number of Americans who applied for unemployment benefits increased last week. The rise is associated with Hurricane Harvey. According to the report of the US Department of Labor, the number of initial applications for unemployment benefits for the week from August 27 to September 2 increased by 62,000 and amounted to 298,000. Economists predicted the number of applications to be at 241,000.

Technical analysis of gold for September 11, 2017
 
Gold price opened with a gap down today. Trend remains bullish. Price can find support at $1,330-$1,340 area. Gold price is expected to continue its bullish trend higher.
 
analytics59b624c455d51.jpg
 
Black lines - bullish channel 
 
Gold price has reached the 38% Fibonacci retracement support. We could see price move a bit lower towards the lower channel boundary or the Ichimoku cloud support at $1,330, This would be a buying opportunity. I remain bullish and expect Gold price to reverse to the upside soon.
 
analytics59b62520b7d2f.jpg
 
On a daily basis, Gold price is making higher highs and higher lows. Support is at $1.330-$1,300 area. Trend is bullish in ichimoku cloud terms as well. The oscillators are turning downwards from overbought levels but we have no divergence. This implies that price should make new highs after the pullback is over.

The dollar turned into a Whipping Boy
 
1504791603_1.png
 
These factors try to justify the current weakening of the dollar. However, the hurricanes did not affect anything important either in the financial world or in oil and gas production. Even the nuclear missiles, that cannot fly as far as the US, have little effect. 
 
Over the past week, the dollar has weakened considerably. Both the euro and the pound have been strengthening day by day. In many ways this was contrary to common sense, or at least it seemed so at first glance. It is often said that the blame for all the hurricanes that hit the south of the United States is the nuclear tests of the DPRK. 
 
The television footage of the destruction caused by the hurricane in Texas, of course, is impressive. Especially when you realize that we are talking about the second-largest economy and the second-largest population in the state. The first thought that this footage led to is panic, which inevitably affected the dollar. Moreover, if you remember, Texas is famous for its oil workers. It's as if the hurricane caused huge damage to France. However, Texas is a huge state, bigger than most countries in the world. The hurricane affected only a small part of it, and oil production in the United States has long ago moved north of Texas itself. Shale oil and gas in the state is not affected too much. Also, do not forget that in terms of the financial world, Texas is simply insignificant. Another thing, it is in New York or Chicago where large investors and financial tycoons live. Well, it was the case back in Boston. In short, it's not worth writing off everything for a hurricane. 
 
North Korea have caused a lot of people to worry about ballistic missile launches. Here, the weakening of the dollar is explained by the fear of investors of the nuclear strikes of Kim Jong-un. However, everything here is very strange. After all, North Korea has never launched a missile capable of flying to the US territory. Experts only suggest that they have them. But here's what the DPRK definitely has: missiles that are capable of hitting the territory of Japan. About South Korea, they said nothing. So, if all these investors are so afraid of a nuclear attack from the DPRK, it is more logical to transfer money to where they will be the least probability of being hit. Namely, in the US and Europe. Despite this, the dollar weakened against all currencies. 
 
There was also the speech by Mario Draghi which was held immediately after the ECB meeting on monetary policy. He said that if necessary, the program of quantitative easing will be extended beyond December of this year. He also added that interest rates will remain low for a long time. After such words, any currency would inevitably collapse. However, a lot rests on the fact that Mario Draghi did not express concern about the euro. It is understandable that he did not speak about it, since the euro is not a priority for the ECB. The European Central Bank has more important tasks. 
 
So it is necessary to state a simple and banal thing: investors are fleeing from the dollar. 
 
The reason is that investors do not care whether things are going badly or well. It is important for them that the situation is understandable and predictable. Here, in Europe, everything is clear. For a long time, the ECB and the Bank of England will pursue an ultra-soft monetary policy. This, of course, is not very good, but at least it's predictable. In the United States, it is not at all smooth. In the first half of the year, it was promised that by the end of the year, the Fed will refinance the rate of 1.5%. This strengthened the dollar. Now, there are a lot of questions to the Fed, including the rate, which, perhaps, will be left at the level of 1.25%. And since the rate will not be raised any more, then there is nothing anymore to lie about without money. 
 
This scenario will please the eyes of market participants this week. Now, a new hurricane will hit Florida, which is the third largest population and the fourth largest economy by the state. However, the value of Florida is much smaller than that of Texas, so it is quite difficult to use it as an excuse to justify the weakening of the dollar. Especially, since in Florida, unlike Texas, there is no serious industry. The state's position on the size of the economy is only because of the size of the population. However, there is no doubt hurricanes will be used as an excuse. 
 
Another argument in favor of the weakening the dollar is the upcoming meeting of the Bank of England on monetary policy. First, there will be data on inflation, which should show acceleration from 2.6% to 2.8%. If these forecasts are justified, then the number of supporters of the increase in the refinancing rate in the Bank of England will increase. Since the hopes for a rapid increase in the rate in the United States have not been justified, it is worth seeing the UK try. So, the dollar still has to fall in price. Moreover, in the US, a significant slowdown in the growth rate of retail sales is expected from 4.2% to 3.1%. 
 
Considering that practically no significant news is coming out in Europe, the EUR/USD pair, if it grows up, is insignificant. Hysteria about the hurricane in Florida will not allow the dollar to strengthen, so there is a high probability of consolidation around 1.2000. 
 
If the number of votes for raising the refinancing rate in the Bank of England is three or more, then the GBP/USD pair will rise to 1.3350. If inflation increases, the members of the Bank of England board will be cautious, and a pound drop to 1.2950 is possible.

What are the prospects for the British pound?
 
1505220707_1.png
 
The British pound rose sharply against the US dollar and other world currencies after the release of good inflation data, which again "awakened" the talks about raising interest rates by the Bank of England. 
 
Although such prospects, of course, are quite lengthy, judging by the latest data, with inflation in the UK, after a disastrous July month, everything is in order in August. 
 
According to the report of the National Bureau of Statistics of Great Britain, both monthly and annual inflation grew. Remarkably, the two indicators were much better than the economists' forecasts. So, the consumer price index of Great Britain in August this year increased by 2.9% compared to the same period of the previous year, while economists expected growth of only 2.7%. The growth was due to a sharp jump in prices for clothing and footwear. 
 
Compared to July 2017, the consumer price index rose by 0.6%, while economists forecast an increase of 0.5%. 
 
The country's factory gate prices in August rose by 3.4% compared to the same period of the previous year, while purchasing prices jumped by 7.6%. The increase in purchasing prices was directly related to the rising prices of crude oil.
 
Such good performance is unlikely to affect the decision of the Bank of England this Thursday, when it is expected that the regulator will leave the key interest rate unchanged at 0.25%, as the economic growth remains moderate. 
 
The most positive forecasts of economists indicate an increase in the cost of borrowing at the beginning of next year, although the optimal period is mid-2018. 
 
As for the technical picture of the GBPUSD pair, majority will depend on how the new buyers show themselves at the level of 1.3260, because an unsuccessful consolidation above this level can trigger a gradual selling of the pound in the medium term. The high that buyers can expect in this scenario is the update of 1.3330 and 1.3370. If, after the decision of the Bank of England, the trade moves below the level of 1.3260, then it is likely that the pound will be sold quickly to the larger support levels 1.3190 and 1.3090. 
 
According to The Retail Economist and Goldman Sachs, the US retail sales index for the week of September 3-9 fell by 3.0% compared to last week, which is generally related to seasonality before the start of the academic year. Compared to the same period in 2016, the sales index in the US retail chains grew by 2.3%.

The Bank of England can raise rates
 
After the release of strong data on consumer inflation in the UK, as well as the increase in selling and purchasing prices of producers, the question of whether the Bank of England will raise interest rates at the September meeting has surfaced again. 
 
Released on Tuesday, really strong data on consumer inflation unexpectedly showed a significant increase in August, both in monthly terms and in annual terms. This increases the likelihood of an increase in interest rates by the Bank of England at its September meeting. Today there will be more figures on the average level of wages in the UK, as well as on employment. It is expected that wages rose by 2.3% in July against the 2.1% increase in June. Also, growth in applications for unemployment benefits is expected. It can be assumed that if the data prove to be better than forecasts or, at least, not worse than expected, it will support the British currency on the wave of increasing expectations of higher interest rates next week. 
 
In addition to data from the UK, the market will focus today on the publication of figures for industrial inflation in the US. It is estimated that the producer price index will increase sharply both in annual and monthly terms. The annual figures will have to jump to 2.5% from 1.9%, and the monthly increase in August by 0.3% after a 0.1% drop in July. 
 
If these data prove to be worse than forecasts or show higher values, then, the US dollar may receive domestic support against the euro and, possibly, also against the yen. 
 
In general, the currency market can be expected to continue the consolidation period before the meeting of the Bank of England and the Federal Reserve. At the first meeting, a decision may be made to raise interest rates or reduce the volume of asset purchases, while at the second meeting it will be decided to start reducing the balance of the Fed. The first event will support the British currency, and the second will show investors the path of the future monetary policy. 
 
Forecast of the day: 
 
The EURUSD pair may be under pressure on the wave of strong data on production inflation in the US and is able to drop to 1.1925, but its decline will probably be domestic, as the market will expect the release of figures on consumer inflation in the US and the results of the Fed meeting. 
 
The EURGBP pair fell to the level of 0.9000, the overcoming of which can still cause the continuation of its decline to 0.8885. But it is likely that before the meeting of the Bank of England the pair will consolidate, and only the decision of the regulator to raise rates or reduce the volume of asset purchases will lead to its further decline.

Fed will not help the dollar
 
Encouraged by hopes of stimulating the US economy under the influence of Donald Trump's stimulating programs, the "bears" of the EUR/USD pair went into a counter-attack. The consequences of hurricanes "Harvey" and "Irma" were not as terrible as initially expected. Besides, history shows that "Katrina" was stronger against the two, at a time when the Fed raised the federal funds rate in 2005. Natural disasters are temporary and in the end the result of the restoration work can benefit the GDP. Simultaneously, the idea of tax reform, which in late 2016 pushed up the USD index, has returned to the market. 
 
Judging by the comments of the Republicans, the bill on changes in the taxation system will become public for a week by September 25. Up to this point, one can only guess at the basic provisions of the reform and how far it will spread in the American economy. The president only hinted that the rich should not expect special preferences, which contrasts with previous statements about the reduction of corporate tax and real estate tax. However, the fact that Trump changes his mind like a glove, throughout it should be expected. 
 
The rise in US GDP growth rate entails a more rapid tightening of the monetary policy by the Fed, compared with what the markets are currently waiting for. While the regulator is concerned about inflation, it must be understood that conditions are constantly changing. If in the 1970s, its average level was 7.1%, in the 1980s - 5.6%, in 1990 - 3%, in the 2000s - 2.6%, but now it is below the 2% mark. The liability is globalization and new technologies that increase competition and force producers to cut prices. In correlation with this, raising the federal funds rate to 3-3.5% or higher, as it was before, is not necessary. The cycle of monetary restriction of the Fed can be completed much earlier, and the realization of this fact will attract new sellers of the US dollar to the market.

The outlook for the euro, on the contrary, appears optimistic. In fact, due to the lag in the economic cycle in the eurozone compared to the United States, the ECB is at the same pace as the Fed in 2014. The European Central Bank is ready to normalize monetary policy, and the current EUR/USD pair correction only increases the likelihood of it. In October, Mario Draghi will report on the curtailment of the quantitative easing program. This will be a new occasion to buy the euro. 
 
It should be noted that during its last cycle of tightening monetary policy in 2005-2008, the regional currency strengthened against the US dollar by 30%, and if history repeats itself, the current +13% is just the beginning. In this regard, it makes sense for traders to stick to the previous strategy in the main currency pair - buying on payoffs. 
 
Technically, the inability of bulls to move prices above the target by 161.8% on the AB = CD pattern indicates their weakness. The formation of the double vertex increases the correction risks in the direction of at least the lower boundary of the upstream trading channel.

US Dollar: bulls ready for revenge
 
The US dollar was sold at the close of the week on Friday after an unexpectedly weak report on retail sales and industrial production for the month of August. The data cast doubt on the prospects for the recovery of the US economy. 
 
Retail sales decreased by 0.2% compared to July. Moreover, the July growth of 0.6% was revised downwards to 0.3%. Meanwhile, the report for June was a;so revised from + 0.3% to -0.1%. Thus, the dynamics of retail sales over the past three months was significantly worse than the market expected, casting doubt on the ability of the US consumer sector to maintain demand at the same level. 
 
For the first time since January, the volume of industrial production has decreased. The decline in August was 0.9%, which is the maximum monthly decline since May 2009, causing the manufacturing industry fell by 0.3%. The reason for such a weak data, according to experts, is the consequences of hurricane "Harvey", which broke out on the southern coast of the United States and contributed to a decline in the oil refining and chemical industries. 
 
The GDP growth rate in the third quarter was now under attack. The GDPNow model from the Atlanta Federal Reserve forecasts an increase of 2.2% in the third quarter, which is noticeably worse than the 4% growth expectations of just 6 weeks ago. Meanwhile, weak economic growth casts doubt on the Fed's plans to normalize monetary policy.

The failed report on retail sales was unexpected given the acceleration in consumer price growth. In August, inflation rose by 0.4% against a growth of 0.1% for the month of July. Year-on-year growth reached 1.9%. The results were better than forecasts and, it would seem, gave a strong argument for the bulls on the dollar. Good dynamics on consumer activity would add credibility to the leaders of the Fed. This is because after the start of the program to reduce the balance sheet following the meeting on September 20, the market considered the matter resolved,and the dollar should have receive the long-awaited impetus for a turn. 
 
However, the dollar's fate is again in question. Of course, the dynamics of retail sales is unpleasant news for the Fed but it will not affect its position. The plan to reduce the balance sheet was announced in advance and the impact of the hurricane will have be temporary. However, the increase in inflation is a much stronger argument, and it will give an opportunity in the updated forecast of September 20 to indicate higher figures than the market expects. 
 
The weakening of the dollar by the end of the week was also caused by the unexpectedly aggressive position of the Bank of England, which announced the imminent start of the rate hike cycle, and fixing profits before the weekend. At the same time, there is a noticeable recovery in the markets, which is reflected in the growth in demand for risky assets with stock indices growing. The dollar is experiencing a clear deficit of good news, and the beginning of the week before the Fed meeting will be held in anticipation of the positive outcome of the meeting. 
 
At the moment, the dollar is ready to resume growth. All the catalysts for its decline in the current year are already played by the market. There are no new catalysts and there are very few reasons for further weakening. The problem with the level of public debt and government funding is removed from the agenda. The fate of the tax reform is in the hands of the democrats with whom Trump, according to recent data, has managed to find a solution that suits everyone. Any announcement of support for reforms by the Congress will serve as a powerful driver for the growth of the dollar, as it will potentially contain the factor of a rapid inflow of investments into the US economy. 
 
The dollar has good chances, primarily against the yen and the franc. The Central Bank of Japan and the NBS continue to adhere to a soft monetary policy, which, against the backdrop of growing interest in risk, will be an additional argument in favor of sales. Against the euro, the dollar does not yet have strong positions, as the ECB is also preparing to wind down the buyback program. However, the euro's rise before the Fed meeting is virtually ruled out. Trade in the Australian and Canadian dollars will be cautious, with greater chances to go into the lateral range, at least until the support from rising commodity prices ceases.
