Negative macroeconomic statistics on inflation and GDP in the euro area has led to a significant weakening of EUR/USD pair in August. As the result of sales, the united European currency lost weight and ended the month by 2.22% decrease. In the last summer month GBP/USD pair also decreased by 1.7%. Against the backdrop of the weak economy and the "bull rally" in the US stock market Japanese Yen has strengthened and increased by 1.25%.
Despite increased risks in Iraq, "bear rally" continues in the oil market, which puts many traders in a deadlock. In the dispute between bears and bulls on gold (XAU/USD) the last won the minimal victory over the month. At the beginning of the month, we have seen increase of geopolitical risks that supported the demand in precious metals, and in the second half of the month reduce of yields of the US 10-year's Treasuries encouraged bears to open short positions.
US GDP for the second quarter was revised towards better figures up to the level of 4.2%, which in sum with positive reports brought a futures contract on the S & P500 to a new historic peak 2005.3 p.
