Since the beginning of the trading session, the US dollar continued to rise against the euro, by updating the monthly highs, which was caused by correction of positions before the weekend, and very good data from US business activity. According to analysts recent US data increases the likelihood of the Fed raising interest rates. This is unlikely to happen at the July meeting, but closer to the end of the year. Futures on the federal funds currently estimate a probability of 20% for a rate hike in September. Meanwhile, the chances increase in December to 40% compared with less than 20% a week ago, and 9% at the beginning of the month.

According to Reuters latest survey, just over half of the 100 economists expect the Fed to raise rates in the fourth quarter to 0.75 percent compared with 0.25-0.50 percent currently. The change is likely to occur in December, as the November meeting of the Central Bank will begin in just a few days before the election on 8 November. The rest of the respondents forecast growth in the third quarter, most likely in September.
