The US dollar is still performing well despite a series of negative news stories over the weekend, including that of Donald Trump being party to the US Government shutdown.

By failing to agree terms on budget proposals, significantly the amounts to cover the cost of the ‘Wall’, thousands of government workers could find it is a rather bleak Christmas.
Trump is also in the news because of a range of policy decisions affecting military withdrawal from Syrian and Iraq.
Donald Trump has been a key factor affecting the strength of the US dollar since his election in 2016, as the market tries to predict what he will do next.
2019 is likely to be a very turbulent time on the US dollar since this year has seen 4 interest rate hikes from the Fed and next year might see a further 2. There is then a real chance the market has to backtrack on its viewpoint of the US dollar, which could see it weaken.
The next 4 working days will see a series of limited economic news released, plus the fallout from the US Government shutdown. I would also not expect Donald Trump to be quiet over the Festive Season, his twitter page might well provide market with some cause for concern as we finish 2018.
