Daily Forex Preview – 03/12

Dollar Bulls were back in the game yesterday as the Greenback strengthened across the board, considerably weakening other majors including the Euro and the British Sterling. With not much of fundamentals on the tap, the sole economic data was the construction spending, which rose 1.1% beating estimates. EURUSD broke below 1.24 handle to end the day lower at 1.23759, while the Cable gave up the gains made previously.

The Eurozone PPI was the only economic release during the European trading session which came out weaker than expected m/m, declining -0.4%, while the PPI y/y was in line with expectations. The Euro initially shrugged off the weak release only to give up its gains around the US trading session open.

UK’s construction PMI came in weaker than expected, declining to 59.4 below estimates of 61. The construction PMI data weighed in on the Cable as the Pound started to tread lower ever since. The Cable closed back into its range of 1.578 – 1.558 levels.
Economic data is packed today with services PMI due from Eurozone and the UK along with the US ADP nonfarm payroll change schedule.
