The last week of January will bring in tow a flow of US statistics, more sessions of Central banks, and a meeting of the US Fed. Things will be, at least, curious.

USD: attention to the Fed

USD: attention to the Fed

The first session of the Fed this year must go smoothly and without surprises. The interest rate will be remaining in the target range of 0-0.25% for quite a long time, while the comments are likely to be carefully optimistic about the planned stimulation. For the USD, these factors are neutral, but the dollar might decline a bit for short whiles.

Central banks: sessions are keeping on

GBP: the pound is hoping for the best

After the vaccination started, the market's attitude towards the pound remains positive. This week, statistics will be abundant, including the labor market and retail sales data. The fewer the signals of slowing down, the better for the GBP.

JPY: the demand for safe-haven assets is limited

Capital markets are sure that the world will escape the tight grip of the pandemics quite soon, so the demand for protective assets, including the yen, is limited. This week, Japan will publish the statistics on the CCI, unemployment rate, and base inflation in Tokyo, and if the digits are moderate, the JPY will hardly react.
