Trade balance figures yesterday coming out of the U.S. were weaker than expected at a deficit of $59.2billion. The slump in the US economy is being felt around the world despite the recent decline in global dependence on US growth. Patterns resulting in higher long-term interest rates in the US at such a critical stage are not in the interest of economies heavily exposed to US consumption. However, in the short term, growth concerns are having a negative impact on dollar sentiment.

European Central Bank President Trichet reiterated that no financial economy is in danger of collapsing. Furthermore, the ECB remains concerned about inflation. Trichet also said that the ECB's main role is price stability, not financial stability. In early trading this morning, the Euro hit an all-time tradable high of 1.3678 against the US dollar.
