Dollar Consolidates Gains Before Christmas

    * Consolidating its recent strong gains, the dollar fell on Wednesday as investors took profits before the Christmas holiday. US personal income and spending rose slightly less than expected in November while new home sales unexpectedly decreased 11.3% m/m. The US economic weakness is temporary, not indicating the economic recovery is faltering. The S&P 500 rose 2.57 to 1,120.59. The yen and euro gained for the first time in seven trading days. Sterling declined modestly, pressured by Bank of England minutes that showed BOE policy makers unanimously kept their bond-purchase plan at £200 billion. The Australian dollar was supported by rising commodity prices. Despite slightly lower-than-expected Canadian GDP growth, the Canadian dollar rose for a fourth day, boosted by Canadian Finance Minister Jim Flaherty’s comments that he wouldn’t be surprised if China and Russia bought the Canadian dollar to diversify their currency reserve holdings.

    * The dollar index fell from a nearly 3-month high. After breaking its long downtrend, the dollar index surged as investors exited huge short dollar positions. We believe the dollar rally will continue; however, the dollar index, following sharp gains, may require further consolidation before new advances. Today the index found support from the short-term uptrend. There are important supports in the 77 and 76 areas, minor resistances at 78.50 and 79.50 and significant resistance in the 81 area. Thin market conditions over the holidays may exacerbate movements.
