US Market View
Germany's economy could shrink by around 1.5% in the beginning of the year, the DIW research institute said on Wednesday, as lockdown measures to restrict coronavirus infections take a toll on Europe's biggest economy.
EUR/USD trades flat near 1.2150, having faced rejection at 1.2180 on Tuesday. The pair trades well within Tuesday's indecisive range. Lagarde's comments keep the EUR bulls from cheering Jerome Powell's dovish comments. German data awaited.
Absent another government spending push in Europe to match the "go big" drive of new U.S. President Joe Biden, markets suspect the European Central Bank (ECB) may be forced to push back with even more bond buying to calm the waters. ECB chief Christine Lagarde sent the first shot across the bows on Monday saying the central bank was "closely monitoring the evolution of longer-term nominal bond yields"
Market anxiety about the inflationary impact of the U.S. government's massive, planned spending boost is driving up U.S. Treasury yields and undermining the dollar. That risks stifling Europe's recovery with a stronger euro and relatively higher real borrowing rates, even though Europe's fiscal stimulus is dwarfed by Washington's $1.9 trillion plan.

Hold onto your hats, folks! The Japanese yen took a nosedive after the Bank of Japan (BOJ) left its ultra-loose policy settings unchanged, including its closely watched yield curve control (YCC) policy. But wait, there's more! The BOJ also removed its forward guidance, which had previously pledged to keep interest rates at current or lower levels. So, what's the scoop? Market expectations had been subdued going into the meeting, but some were still hoping for tweaks to the forward guidance to prepare for an eventual exit from the bank's massive stimulus
