The FIFA world cup of forex

TVC:DXY   U.S. Dollar Index
The biggest event in the world is occurring right now in Qatar. 32 national teams are contesting the FIFA World Cup, drawing in audiences in the billions. With so many eyes on the games, it could be argued that it is a forex market moving event. With this hypothesis in mind, let us review some of the recent games played over the weekend and see how they match up with recent moves in the forex market.

Results on and off the pitch

Brazil won 2 goals to nil against Serbia on Friday. As of writing the Brazilian reel is now up by more than 1 percent against the US dollar.

Australia won 1 nil against Tunisia on Saturday. Unfortunately, this information hasn’t shown in the Australian dollar, which is down ~0.80% against the US dollar. Perhaps this is because the win was lucky, with Tunisia beating the socceroos in possession and shots at goal.
