Most of yesterday was held in line with the bullish for the dollar.
Yesterday the UK industrial production fell by 0.4% vs. the forecast of + 0.1%. The forecast for UK GDP from NIESR for October was 0.4%. So the US dollar could strengthen. However, after the first results, the dollar began to weaken against all the currencies.
Today the high volatility is provided on the markets.
The US presidential election began with the explicit expectation of Hillary Clinton leadership, but the unexpected happened - Donald Trump won the "democratic" states of Wisconsin, Florida.
Markets were shocked and currencies sharply broke up. Euro gained 150 points, the Cable got 100 points, the yen 300 points. At the Asian stock markets showed a collapse: Nikkei225 -5,42%, S&P/ASX200 -2,08%, China A50 -1,37%.
