Dollar weakens into Christmas after exceptional year

After a poor week long showing of the dollar this week, it worsened today Thursday, which is the Christmas eve, with a 0.5 % fall against the euro and yen showing little sign of the anticipated strength predicted by many banks in 2016.
While maintaining the course of an overall 10 percent gain this year, the dollar is 2.3% down against the yen and nearly 4% against the euro in December, the latter is as a result of the European Central Bank decision that added lower than the anticipated monetary stimulus.
In an outlook of 2016, most major bank analysts predict a dollar rise, but the moves forecast are much smaller than a year ago, with less consensus on the currencies it can rise against.
