Yesterday, the release of the Eurozone business climate index in Germany (IFO) on business sentiment and business conditions was published. The survey involved 7,000 companies and as a result IFO showed 107.3 (previous figure of 108.6) which is the smallest data point for the past 11 months. IFO is closely interconnected with Germany's GDP and its decline was alarmingly perceived by traders in the currency markets.

The United States today will publish an index of consumer confidence. This index measures the level of consumer confidence and consumer spending forecasts. High ratings will have a positive effect on the Dollar, and we may expect it today.
