EUR/USD Sentiment Spanish streak continues: Spanish data continues to sparkle in 2014. On Monday, Spanish Services PMI jumped to an impressive 54.2 points, up from 51.2 points the month before. This was well above the estimate of 51.1 points. Last week, Unemployment Change sparkled, dropping by 107.6 thousand, crushing the estimate of 24.3 thousand. This was the best reading ever in the month of December. Earlier in the week, Manufacturing PMI crossed above the 50-point level, indicating expansion. Unemployment Claims Unchanged: Last week’s Unemployment Claims were almost identical to the previous week, coming in at 339 thousand. This was slightly above the estimate of 334 thousand.

But as the excess liquidity needs to find a way, the flows are now changing direction and the euro has dropped sharply since January 1. EUR/USD has steadied as we put the holiday season behind us and begin the new trading week. Euro gets a new member: Latvia joined the Eurozone on January 1, becoming the 18th member of the bloc.

There are now some 333 million people are now using the euro. Dollar outlook for 2014: Many analysts see the dollar strengthening in 2014, but the euro is certainly expected to give a fight. Here is one outlook: 2014 – Conditional Dollar Strength.
