 Hi Social Traders,

We hope everyone took advantage of the market volatility with profitable social trades, thanks to US President Donald Trump's first month in office.  In January, the Euro gained back its losses made in December against the US Dollar with a strong 9.5% move.   The Mexican Peso also made a new all-time low against the US Dollar in January with continued Trump rhetoric about building a wall, US important tax rate hikes and the renegotiation of trade deals.  The Turkish Lira continued to weaken against the EUR and USD in January as Fitch gave a negative outlook on the country which followed after previous negative ratings from Moody's and S&P in 2016.  Both the MXN and TRY have offered many trading opportunities for traders due to the high volatility, but most traders on FX Junction continued to focus mainly on the GBP and EUR currencies. 

Additional important events in January continued with the UK supreme court ruling that required the government to seek Parliament approval before triggering article 50.  The British Pound has been in a continual sell-off since the EU referendum, but has rebounded lately due to the unexpected positive economic growth in the country.  The Brazil central bank has eased it's monetary policy in January by lowering its benchmark interest rate by 75 basis points which helped strenthen the BRL by 4% in January against the USD.

January Forex Industry News


FX Junction community continued to grow as January membership increased by 1.1% compared to December to 23,462 members.  Number of FX Junction members who have linked their brokerage accounts have increased by 1.1% compared to December to 9,325 accounts despite our implementation of the broker blacklist  which resulted in a drop of some of the linked accounts.
