The EUR/USD is trading slightly unchanged since yesterday's levels. The pair continues to gravitate towards 1.04 level, currently 1.0403. Main trend on the long-term remains bearish. Volatility may remain low until Donald Trump officially steps into office.

USD/CHF continues its range bound trading in the early opening hours today. The pair went close to a parity last week when the flash crash took place and then climbed up again to reach a high of 1.0335 in yesterday's session. The move is still not over as the stronger US dollar once again is flexing muscles.

Partially, the stronger dollar is the effect of Trump's tweet yesterday that US manufacturers should contain their production within the borders of the United States or face high taxes. That caused Ford to cancel a $1.6B deal to manufacture in Mexico.

This move by Donald Trump was seen as a decisive and bold presidential act that got a lot of media attention. As it seems, Trump is already taking control over the economy a couple of weeks before he is officialy sworn as the President of the United States.

With this kind of determined and goal oriented measures, the President elect has a great chance to boost the US dollar into record breaking levels.

EUR/USD is up on release of FOMC minutes. The pair went to a high of 1.0562 on increased risk of higher pricing and uncertainty for higher inflation. Dollar is weaker as markets are unsure what the impact of current policy is going to be.

Gold is up with $13 overnight as dollar is trading weaker. US dollar is selling off over the last couple of days which caused the yellow metal to rally from $1,150 to a high of $1,177. Overall the long term outlook is very optimistic for the dollar with rising rates in 2017, Trump's strong administration and this would cause headwinds for the greenbackand weak environment for Gold and metals overall.

That being said, the current depreciation of the dollar can be seen as a correction which helped Gold bugs to jump on in the trade to a 4 week high. EUR/USD is now at 1.0557, USD/JPY is at 116.18 and USD/CHF is gravitating towards 1.0167.

The correction is due to the release of the latest FOMC Minutes which sounded hawkish with increased risk on higher pricing and that drove market participants away from the dollar. But on Friday we get to know the latest NFP's and jobless claims and that would definitely leave an impact on market conditions.

Silver has made considerable progress over the last few days going from a low of 15.61 to a high of 16.71. The asset, however, remains in bearish teritorry as Silver bulls must go through the resistance level at 16.70 or bears will take over again and push prices further down.

Silver reached a 2016 high in the beginning of July when price skyrocketed to 21.11 and then gradually started to wear off as the dollar gained strength. Expectations are for the US dollar to pick up the momentum and continue to appreciate.

Some experts even say that the move in the US dollar has not even started yet and that they expect a huge move to the upside around the time of inauguration of Donald Trump in less than two weeks.

If that is the case, then Silver along with Gold are poised to go lower. On the other hand, it takes just a spark to make precious metals go off to new highs.

EUR/USD traders remains cautious in the first day of the week as price keeps trading unchanged around 1.0540. On Friday the US dollar was benefited by positive US data and that drove the price of the pair down. Now bears seem to have an edge that would give them control over the pair for the short-term.

Gold registered a new high today going above $1,190 for the first time since 30 November last year. The precious metal has been gaining in price since 15 December when it reached a low of $1,123 and then started going North.

Although the asset looks clearly bullish, going long for the short-term might turn out to be a bad choice. The odds are still in favor of the US dollar as we approach the Inauguration day when Donald Trump will officially be elected as President of the United States. In light of this, markets might react excessively volatile without any reasoning behind it.

Best decision would be to remain cautiously optimistic and observe the turn of events with a clear head to not fall prey to the desire for quick money on news trading.

Current Gold price is trading at resistance and if bulls want to continue their rally they need to go above the psychological $1,200 in order for them to have an edge against their peers.

USD/JPY continues to trade sideways with price fluctuating around 116 in recent days. The pair registered a close to one year high in December reaching up to 118.66. After that high, however, bears stepped in and ended the multi-month rally that started from 98.85.

Price is now 116.09 as consolidation continues. First bull target is seen at 117.39 while first bear target is below the lowest low at 115.05.

We are only 10 days away from the Inauguration of Donald Trump and that event can cause heavy volatility in the US equity and currency market.

As to USD/JPY, traders might attempt to reach major resistance zone at 121.00. In that case, bears are expected to react and push price down.

USD/CAD is trading below the long-term support and just about to touch the 200SMA. The pair broke the support level at 1.3160 and continued to the downside to reach a low of 1.3125. The low comes after the US dollar advanced to a high of 1.36 against its peer and then took a turn South.

Yesterday's speech of Donald Trump influenced the US currency market and the US dollar depreciated against its competitors. Today it seems that the move is likely to continue as there would be no major news that can change the direction of the market.

Current market price is 1.3127 and we are only some 30 points away from the 200SMA. If bears are able to push price below that level we might see selling to accelerate to potential target below 1.30.

On the other hand, the 200SMA might be used by the bulls to bounce off as a strong support level and go back above the support at 1.32.

EUR/USD is trading steadily in today's session due to lack of fresh news that can stir the market. Later today we have the Advance Retail Sales and Michigan Confidence. The events have the potential to create the outlook for market behavior for next week.
