Forex Signals Brief for Feb 2: Silver in Focus
Rowan Crosby • 2 min read
US markets jumped higher to open the new trading week, with plenty of things going on.
I can’t recall a time in my life when we’ve seen so many unusual things happening – if you’re paying attention.
At the same time, we heard that the Myanmar Government has been arrested by the military for election fraud. Interestingly, they also use the same technology for voting that we saw in the US. Coincidence? There have been a number of Governments that have come down in recent weeks, to little fanfare from the media including Italy and the Netherlands. While we are also hearing that there is a huge military buildup in the South China Sea.
Then in the background, Congress is trying to impeach US President Donald Trump – a move that is unconstitutional if he is not the President?
All the while these things are going on and the markets keep on grinding higher. We are also seeing the USD really pushing back up now and it appears it has put in a base for now. That will likely put pressure on the majors going forward.
