Bernanke holds positions

Yesterday had no European ambitions event affect trading sentiment on the old continent. Interesting, however, appeared to USA. The first event was the publication of a relatively broad set of macro data. As consumer confidence and new home sales and the index of manufacturing activity in the Richmond Fed surpassed analysts' expectations positive sense. The second event was the speech by Ben Bernanke in the U.S. Senate. As expected, confirmed that the asset purchase program will continue until the outlook for the labor market does not improve significantly. (I think Bernanke will be the final voting for the reduction or cancellation of QE). A further rule out the involvement of the U.S. in any form of currency wars (of course). Also touched on the current, so-called sequestration.It is a term denoting the automatic activation of austerity measures amounting to about 90 billion USD, which will be triggered in the event of disagreement over policymakerů expenditure component of the U.S. budget by the end of February. It should be noted that the cuts would have hurt especially non-mandatory expenditures such as grants, defense spending, etc. The impact on GDP would therefore not high, the markets are also relatively resistant to this phenomenon, apparently on historical experience as similar deadline experienced in the last year several. The threat of a fiscal cliff (a disastrous impact on GDP), of course, continues to apply. The solution is, however, shifted to 18 May this year.
