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.

Dollar Index Edges Higher Print E-mail
Daily Forex Fundamentals | Written by ForexTime | Aug 30 16 13:10 GMT
The rising optimism over the Federal Reserve breaking the tradition of central bank caution by raising US interest rates in 2016 has inspired the Dollar bulls with the Dollar Index edging higher towards 96.00. Although expectations continue to fluctuate over the possibility of a US rate rise in September, the 54% probability that the central bank could act in December continues to make the Dollar attractive. Sentiment remains bullish towards the US economy with the string of positive domestic economic data releases providing a compelling reason for the Fed to raise US rates before year end.

Long Yen Trade a Problem Print E-mail
Daily Forex Fundamentals | Written by MarketPulse | Aug 30 16 11:26 GMT
Two days after a 'hawkish' Fed in Jackson Hole, the U.S yield curve continues to flatten as the Feds favourite inflation measure stays below U.S policy makers +2% inflation target. Data Monday showed that July's personal consumption expenditures (PCE) showed no growth in annualized inflation. The core-rate remains at +1.6%, the same as March through June. Despite the consumer sector stateside continuing to advance, growth towards +2% inflation has stalled. The data strengthens the case for an increase in the fed funds rate; however, it does not suggest a state of urgency.

USD's Rally Continues Ahead Of Friday's NFP Print E-mail
Daily Forex Fundamentals | Written by Swissquote Bank SA | Aug 30 16 10:12 GMT
Fed Chair Yellen delivered a balanced message at Jackson Hole, which the underpriced market took as hawkish. However, it was the follow-up comments by Vice Chair Fischer later in the day which really convinced the market that it was under-positioned. Fed Fund futures quickly adjusted from a 20% to 45% probability of a rate hike in September. The net result was US front-end yields shifting higher, while USD rallied across the board (gold was weaker). The 45% probability reflects the coin-toss chance of a rate hike that remains data dependent. Friday’s employment reports will be the next key event for Fed watchers. A robust payroll read above 200k will solidify a hike while something below 100k will shift 3m average near 200k, low enough to avoid a rate hike. Interestingly, the subject of US elections was not discussed at Jackson Hole and remains a critical topic. We suspect that in the background the Fed must be debating the repercussions of a Hillary or Trump victory.

The focus turns to this week's US jobs data out of Friday and its implications for near term policy.

Fed Hike Hopes Pressure Global Stocks Print E-mail
Daily Forex Fundamentals | Written by ForexTime | Aug 30 16 07:46 GMT
Global stocks oscillated between losses and gains on Monday as investor anxiety triggered expectations to fluctuate over the Federal Reserve raising US interest rates in September. Although market participants were provided clarity last week when Yellen stated that the case for raising US rates had strengthened in recent months, September could be premature to act and investors may be digesting this reality. Asian stocks commenced Tuesday on a solid footing borrowing the upside momentum from Wall Street and could trade higher as optimism over the BoJ unleashing further monetary measures attract investors to riskier assets. In Europe, stocks were vulnerability to losses by the intensifying rate hike signals while Wall Street received a welcome boost from rising banking stocks. Stock markets may meander between losses and gains ahead of Friday's NFP report which if exceeds expectations could provide a justifiable reason for the Fed to raise US rates in December.
