Forex Daily Fundamental Reports

Fundamental analysis refers to the study of the core underlying elements that influence the economy of a particular entity. It is a method of study that attempts to predict price action and market trends by analyzing economic indicators, government policy and societal factors (to name just a few elements) within a business cycle framework. For forex traders, the fundamentals are everything that makes a country tick. From interest rates and central bank policy to natural disasters, the fundamentals are a dynamic mix of distinct plans, erratic behaviors and unforeseen events. Therefore, it is best to get a handle on the most influential contributors to this diverse mix than it is to formulate a comprehensive list of all "The Forex Fundamentals."

US: Consumers Take a Breather in August Print E-mail
Daily Forex Fundamentals | Written by TD Bank Financial Group | Sep 30 16 13:42 GMT
The slight disappointment in spending in August puts some downside risk to our expectation for 3.0% annualized consumer spending growth in the third quarter. Still, Q3, is looking like a pretty healthy follow through to Q1's 4.4% showing, and would still see consumer spending provide a solid base for overall growth in the quarter.

Deja Vu in Capital Markets Print E-mail
Daily Forex Fundamentals | Written by MarketPulse | Sep 30 16 12:24 GMT
Despite having already seen the script, investors seem unwilling to improvise, but prefer to act out what's gone before. This week is closing out with markets shifting their focus from rallying energy on an OPEC output cut, to financials as Germany's Deutsche Bank bears the brunt of liquidity concerns. Investors' growing fears that Germany's largest bank could become the next Lehman brothers are supporting risk aversion strategies across the various asset classes (gold, CHF and sovereign bonds).

Kuroda On His Toes As USD/JPY Tests 100 Print E-mail
Daily Forex Fundamentals | Written by Swissquote Bank SA | Sep 30 16 11:18 GMT
It feels as though the Fed and BoJ have now left the building. After last week's market friendly monetary policy action (or non-action), it seems as though central bank credibility has hit a new low, just like the FX market's sensitivity to their comments. Despite a heavy speaking schedule, comments by Yellen, Draghi and Kuroda that only a few days ago would have had volatility swinging, were simply shrugged off. Instead, the news cycle was filled with second string stories of Deutsche Bank stock collapse, OPEC micro supply tuning and the US presidential debate, which hardly managed to fill the void. With no central bank manipulations we anticipate that USDJPY will trade down to 100 in the near term.

Daily Forex Fundamentals | Written by Dukascopy Swiss FX Group | Sep 30 16 09:08 GMT
The number of Americans filing for unemployment benefits rose less than expected, official figures revealed on Thursday.

JPY Higher Despite Disappointing Inflation Report Print E-mail
Daily Forex Fundamentals | Written by Swissquote Bank SA | Sep 30 16 09:04 GMT
The latest batch of economic data from the US released yesterday was a mixed bag, with the third estimate on second quarter GDP printing slightly above the median forecast. The US economy expanded at an annual pace of 1.4% in Q2, beating the median forecast of 1.3%. On the other hand, personal consumption was revised slightly lower to 4.3% q/q (seasonally adjusted annual rate) compared with a prior estimate of 4.4%. US growth is clearly being driven by consumer consumption with personal and household consumption setting the pace. On the inflation front, the core personal expenditure gauge came in in line with the consensus, printing slightly below the Fed target at 1.8% (q/q saar). In spite of some sharp moves following the release, the greenback was little changed as this latest report does not reveal the bigger picture. EUR/USD fell to 1.1197 after the release before bouncing back to 1.1250. Since the beginning of the month, the pair has been desperately trading within the tight 1.1123-1.1350 range.
