FOMC minutes and other market moving US economic data releases are there till Friday. US December jobs numbers will positively affect the US dollar only if they indicate an interest rate hike in March. All incoming US economic data releases need to be looked from a March interest rate hike perspective. The US dollar will get another wave knock down if there is any indication of an interest rate hike beyond March.
Flows in bond global markets need to be closely watched. Emerging markets like India, Indonesia and others will be vulnerable to outflows from their respective bond markets. The Indian rupee and Indonesian Rupiah are both gaining against the US dollar. All emerging market currencies which have gained against the US dollar should look for trend reversal from next week. I generally give weightage to trend in global financial markets from the second week of January every year. Next week is very crucial for emerging market currencies, the US dollar, metals as well as energies.
Bitcoins and crypto currencies are here to stay. There are different crypto currencies which needs to be invested carefully. All crypto currencies do not rise and fall together. Just like the standard currency markets, one needs to be careful while choosing the right investment in crypto currency. I see an Indian crypto currency exchange by next year. Every nation will either have a crypto currency exchange and it will allow trading in crypto currencies in standard exchanges. Nations want control which is the reason for the fuss. They will get partial control of crypto currency markets towards the end of the year. Crypto currencies are the best thing to happen for a gold and silver bull like myself.
