The first week of the year was very nervous. Crisis at China market, new dip of the oil prices, falling indexes (DAX and S&P 500) followed by very good report from US labor market. Very optimistic Non-Farm Payrolls data supported US Dollar against Euro, but only for a short time. Perhaps the next week will be more quite and there is nowhere to fall? Or is it the brink of the abyss? Next week will give us better understanding. Will the markets fall further or they start to grow.
