Forex Analysis EUR/USD; November 13, 2017 | sgtmarkets.com

The Washington Post reported that Senate Republican leaders were thinking of postponing the implementation of major corporate tax cuts to comply with Senate rules. Traders are concerned over any potential delays in the implementation of the tax cuts or the possibility that proposed reforms end up being less drastic than hoped for.


On the other hand, demand for the dollar continued to be underpinned by expectations that the Federal Reserve is on track to raise interest rates in December for a third time this year after strong U.S. factory and service sector data last week backed the case for continued policy tightening.

U.S. Job Creation Surges but misses Consensus; U.S. Wage Inflation flat. But it is ok, as hurricane-related disasters have weighed on the labor market over the past two months.

FOMC statement mentioned "solid" growth but soft inflation, leaving doors open for a December hike.

On the other hand, on the dollar weighed President Donald Trump's decision on the next chair of the Federal Reserve, Russiagate and tax-reform bill.

UK Manufacturing Production data came better than expected.
UK GDP is, according to the BoE being “affected by uncertainties around Brexit”. The latest set of BoE forecasts assume that UK consumption growth “remains sluggish in the near-term”. Recent UK economic data is showing that under the weight of falling real wages, consumers are shying away from buying big ticket items such as cars and furniture. While this is not an environment that is usually associated with a build-up of inflation pressures, the UK economy is still in danger of running into supply constraints due to inadequate investment growth.

On the USD weigh concerns over any potential delays in the implementation of the tax cuts or the possibility that proposed reforms end up being less drastic than hoped for.
