Daily Forex Fundamentals | Written by Forex.com | Jul 30 14 01:42 GMT
If we think of 2014 as a track race, the US economy undoubtedly stumbled out of the starting blocks to begin the year. Heading into January, traders and economists were optimistic that 2014 would be the year that the economy would finally be able to stand on its own without the Quantitative Easing crutch that it had relied upon for the past few years. Those optimistic projections were quickly turned on their heads when the much-ballyhooed Polar Vortex drove economic activity to a standstill in Q1; in fact, the economy actually contracted by 2.9% in Q1, the worst GDP reading since the depths of the Great Financial Crisis:

Daily Forex Fundamentals | Written by Forex.com | Jul 29 14 15:45 GMT
European equity and currency markets diverged from one another today as the FTSE, DAX, and CAC all recovered from early squandering to finish comfortably in the green, while currencies like the EUR, GBP, and CHF languished against the USD. News events were nary a reason for most of these moves, at least out of Europe, as price action from Asia, and eventually North America, swayed markets to bookend lackluster European trade.

Month-End FX Rebalancing May Reflect July's Price Action: Lackluster Print E-mail
Daily Forex Fundamentals | Written by Forex.com | Jul 29 14 13:45 GMT
In order to predict these flows and how they impact FX traders, we've developed a model that compares monthly changes in total asset market capitalization in various countries. In our model, a relative shift of $400B between countries over the course of a month is seen as the threshold for a meaningful move, whereas monthly changes of less than $400B can be easily overwhelmed by other fundamental or technical factors. As a final note, the largest impact from month-end flows is typically seen heading into the 11am ET fix (often in the hour from 10 & 11am ET) as hedge and/or mutual fund portfolio managers scramble to hedge their overall portfolio ahead of the European market close.

Daily Forex Fundamentals | Written by MarketPulse | Jul 29 14 11:50 GMT
Investors appear to be positioning themselves conservatively ahead of the first reading of Q2's US GDP tomorrow.

We cite the UK, New Zealand, Norway, Denmark, Sweden and Switzerland amongst the most concerned by the fattening real estate prices.
