The US Dollar Is Being Traded near Annual Minimums

In the current trading week, the US dollar has significantly weakened against major world currencies. ECB President Mario Draghi said that positive dynamics are observed throughout the euro area, and the inflation slowdown was temporary. This narrative has increased expectations that in the near future the Central Bank may raise the issue of reducing the program of motivation. At the same time, some representatives of the ECB reported that the financial markets participants incorrectly interpreted Draghi's statements.

The pound got support thanks to the comments of the head of the Bank of England. Mark Carney said that in the near future the Central Bank will still have to consider raising the interest rate, which is currently at a record low of 0.25%.

In May, the index of pending sales in the US real estate market fell by 0.8%. Experts expected the growth rate of 0.8%.
