The UK manufacturing and services PMI continued to slow in November, while the US economy and the Michigan consumer confidence index finally rose in November, the US dollar strengthened and British pound correction to 1.28 level.

The performance of the direct impact on the British pound, indirect impact on the Euro. During U.S. trading hours, Canada reported September wholesale sales. Then the US Dallas Fed business activity index for November. Canadian dollar investors, worth watching Canada September wholesale sales. The dollar index and dollar assets are more likely to be influenced by the November performance of the Dallas fed business activity index, and indirectly by the price of gold and crude oil. New Zealand reports Q3 retail sales tomorrow morning. Based on last week's rise in the New Zealand producer price index, we believe there is an opportunity for retail sales to grow. Estimates before the release of the New York dollar. Finally, depending on the result, see whether to test 0.6450 resistance.
