The USD had a somewhat muted trading session since traders are now closely monitoring Federal Reserve as the FOMC’s two-day meeting has already begun. The market is currently expecting the USD to have a somewhat inactive reaction to the Fed’s speculated 25-point interest rate hike, but could exhibited an increased volatility with regards to its price once Fed Chair Janet Yellen speaks on the press conference following the FOMC meeting. The market liquidity expected for this month has already been augmented by the results of the Fed meeting, especially since traders are now more concerned with the central bank’s future plans than with the Fed rate hike this month.

The Outlook for the Economy in 2017

The expected economic performance for 2017 appears to be very much alike with 2016 outlook. The economists surveyed by Reuters said it would be “uneven and unspectacular”. The optimism from investors is the result of the world economy breakout. While experts also mentioned the slowdown within the global trading as it became evident amid the minor recovery in the financial depression begun almost after a decade.
The emerging market remained to be seen as susceptible. The Asian markets are expected to have lesser growth seeing the 2017 prediction for global growth is 3.2 percent whereby the calculation appeared to be slightly less confident compared with last year.
The strength of the US dollar versus other currencies had influence developing economies in regulating a higher rate of inflation and with regards the declining index of business confidence.
The American economy had a high need for improving the output of every worker in order to prosper. On the other hand, the eurozone had recently accelerated since the European Central Bank had continuously purchase bonds per month worth ten billion euro. Moreover, the ongoing elections in the countries France, Germany and Netherlands is regarded a threat to the status quo of the Euro region.
Finally, the tightening campaigns of the central banks weakened the power of the global monetary policy.

Oil Price Climbed Due to Limited supply
Oil moved higher this day as price hikes caused by the supply reduction of crude from top oil exporters such as Saudi Arabia. Moreover, the appreciation of U.S. dollar and steady advancement of the economy have limited returns.
Physical oil supplies has been constricted since production output has significantly lessened which was enacted to end the oil glut. Hence, oil producers were propelled to raise its prices. On the other hand, imports also became expensive because of U.S. dollar strengthening. The official selling price is set to increase in February.

Inflation rate in the Eurozone Rack Up
The inflation rate in the European region had increased, reaching its highest pace after three years. The surge is driven by the price hike for alcohol and tobacco, energy and food.
Based on the report from the Eurostat, the inflation percentage for December gained 1.1% which is notably higher from November’s result of 0.6%.
The highest rate occurred last 2013 in the month of September by which the result is also 1.1%. The final outcome is higher-than-expected which made the ECB’s target less than 2%.
The energy prices surge by 2.5% yearly, while the value of food and intoxicants grew by 1.2% year over year. Moreover, the energy costs rose due to OPEC’s resolution to decrease the production output.
The sharp jump lessened the fears of Europe regarding the possible deflation which could weakened the eurozone’s economic growth. Meanwhile, other core prices compelled by world markets had a limited rise from 0.8% to 0.9% only, this little progress would mean that the December’s inflation is “short-lived” according to analysts.
