First, a few words about the events of the past week:
- USD. Last week, more precisely on Thursday 01 and Friday, August 02, there were two events that could shake the markets. But not shaken.
On Thursday, the first time since 2008, the US Federal Reserve cut its key rate from 2.50% to 2.25%. The event is quite expected. And such a move markets usually react to a drop in prices. However, in this case, instead of falling, the dollar rose, albeit slightly (growth against EUR amounted to little more than 100 points), and a short time (as early as Friday, the euro played 85 points back).
