Forex Trading Forecast: U.S. Dollar to Head Lower
by Trader Rich
Greenback down in currency trading
The U.S. dollar was barely moved one way or the other by recent unemployment data. This is hardly surprising, since the news most people have been waiting for is the GDP report from Quarter 2.
After the report was released, the numbers showed that the U.S. economy shrank by 1% in the second quarter of 2009. While that still shows that the economy has been shrinking, the fact remains that the shrinkage is much lower than expected. And that is what is likely to affect the forex trading forecast for the U.S. dollar.
The indications are that the U.S. economy is slowly moving out of its recession. The latest news rekindles optimism that the economy will be out of the recession by the end of the year so that it can focus on economic recovery. As this happens, sterling and euro are expected to gain the upper hand as the greenback is no longer needed as a safe haven in currency trading.
