As now we should not expect from the US Federal Reserve comments about the monetary policy tightening - the dollar will be under pressure against its major competitors. It should also be noted that the Federal Reserve gold foreign exchange reserves in the first quarter have significantly declined that indicates the payments negative balance strong increase and the main negative factor is the strong dollar.
