Market Recap & Outlook:

The Dollar falls along with Crude futures, Sterling rises slightly.

Wednesday saw the Dollar fall against the other major currencies as investors re-evaluated whether the Federal Reserve will raise interest rates this year. The Dollar slipped against the Euro and the Yen following the release of downbeat productivity data which drained much of the momentum it had built up from last week’s robust jobs report.

EUR/USD rose 0.46 percent to 1.1166, while USD /JPY fell 0.65 percent to trade at 101.21.

The Dollar’s weakness however, gave the struggling Pound Sterling a much needed lift on Wednesday August 11th. The Pound had fallen on Tuesday after the Bank of England missed its target in a new bond buying program aimed at bolstering the economy. The BOE fell short of its £1.17 Billion target by £ 52 Million, when it failed to secure enough sellers. The Pound took a further knock when Bank of England policy maker Ian McCafferty said more monetary easing was likely to be needed if the UK’s economic decline deteriorated further. The Bank said on Wednesday it would delay making up the shortfall for three to six months.

GBP/USD rose 0.14 percent to close at 1.3018.

Crude futures fell on Wednesday, extending losses from the previous session, as investors reacted to an unexpected build in US crude inventories last week combined with a bullish forecast from OPEC on the potential for increased global demand growth for the rest of 2016. On Wednesday morning, the US Energy Information Administration (EIA) said in its weekly Petroleum Status Report that US commercial crude inventories increased by 1.1 million barrels for the week ending August 5 from the previous week. At 523.6 million barrels, US crude oil inventories are at historically high levels for this time of year. Analysts had anticipated a draw of 1.5 million barrels for the week, adjusting their expectations following a 2.09 million increase from the American Petroleum Institute on Tuesday evening after the close of trading.

On the Intercontinental Exchange, Brent crude for October delivery settled at $44.87, down 0.89/1.98 percent on the day.
