Forex Weekly 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."



Possibly A Range-Bound Week Ahead Print E-mail
Weekly Forex Fundamentals | Written by Admiral Markets | Sep 22 14 12:27 GMT
Last week, the overall US Dollar index (I.USDX), which measures the US Dollar performance against other major currencies, posted yet another week of gains on the back of FOMC meeting. The FOMC economic projection showed majority of the members projecting higher interest rates for the upcoming year, eventually boosting demand for the US Dollar. Elsewhere, the British Pound failed to capitalize on the gains witnessed before the Scottish referendum on independence, which rejected independence from the UK.

Weekly Economic and Financial Commentary Print E-mail
Weekly Forex Fundamentals | Written by Wells Fargo Securities | Sep 20 14 04:01 GMT
The Fed further reduced its asset purchases by another $10 billion and kept rates steady as expected. It also decided to keep the language "considerable time" to refer to the period between ending its asset purchases and raising the fed funds rate. We maintain that those purchases will end at the next meeting in October, while the first rate hike will happen sometime in Q2 2015. Although the Fed once again lowered its forecast for the unemployment rate, it also recognized the "significant underutilization of labor resources" in the economy and lowered its GDP forecast. These changes to the projections were small relative to the June release and do not indicate that the Fed is itching to raise rates sooner.

Weekly Forex Fundamentals | Written by TD Bank Financial Group | Sep 20 14 03:47 GMT
Market attention this week was firmly focused on the referendum in Scotland and the latest meeting of the Federal Reserve's FOMC. Polling earlier in the week pointed to a tight result on the Scottish independence vote, which led to increased financial market volatility. However by Friday, markets calmed with the no-side victory. Uncertainty over the outcome in Scotland further contributed to the prevailing theme of U.S. dollar strength.

GBP Fails to React to the Scottish No Vote Print E-mail
Weekly Forex Fundamentals | Written by Forex.com | Sep 20 14 03:41 GMT
After Scotland's resounding "no" vote in the independence referendum, some in the market had expected a sharp rise to 1.66 or above. However, that has not been the case, and since the "no" vote was declared, sterling has been sliding. So what is going on and is there further pain to come? The pair has found support at 1.632; below here opens the way to 1.6162—last Tuesday's low—and then 1.6003, the 50% retracement of the July 2013–July 2014 bull trade.

Week in FX Americas - Is Fed Rhetoric about to Change? Print E-mail
Weekly Forex Fundamentals | Written by MarketPulse | Sep 20 14 03:17 GMT
This week the Fed retained its guidance that short-term interest rates will remain near zero for a "considerable time" after the bond buying program ends. Currently, the market now expects the remaining $15b's worth of QE to end next month. However, at the same time the Fed have shifted their interest rate projections significantly for both 2015 and 2016. The initial take by many was that the timing of a rate hike had been brought forward. The market's reaction was again to be long the dollar in response to the overnight guidance. But, has the market overreacted?

Week in FX Asia - The Good, the Bad and the Ugly of a Weaker JPY Print E-mail
Weekly Forex Fundamentals | Written by MarketPulse | Sep 20 14 03:15 GMT
A weaker JPY can be a bane and a blessing to Japan. It does have benefits for exporters, which can increase their earnings. The stock market has captured that sentiment as the stock market keeps rising. A weak currency in the long term can also bring about a higher cost of imports. For an island nation that depends on energy and food imports that could lead to higher prices not driven by consumers, therefore not positive to growth.

Weekly Forex Fundamentals | Written by Danske Bank | Sep 19 14 14:25 GMT
The US is the preferred place of investment at the moment as the sole pillar of strength in a world of hot spots. European stocks should be back in favour as the economy recovers towards yearend. More USD strength ahead as the Fed hikes are drawing closer. The market is still pricing in too few rate hikes from the Fed. Chinese weakness in housing and manufacturing raises the chance of a rate cut later this year.

Weekly Forex Fundamentals | Written by MarketPulse | Sep 19 14 11:23 GMT
The Swiss National Bank (SNB) provided no major surprises in its quarterly policy review earlier this week, but the tone of its statement was probably more dovish than the market had expected. For the 13th consecutive quarter, the SNB chose to keep its target range for three-month Libor (London Interbank Offered Rate) at 0.0% to 0.25%.

FOMC And Scottish Voting Likely To Fuel The Forex Market Print E-mail
Weekly Forex Fundamentals | Written by Admiral Markets | Sep 15 14 14:50 GMT
With the continued progression of improved US economic numbers supporting the early rate hike by Fed, the US Dollar kept strengthening against majority of its counterparts during last week. However, BoE Governor, Mark Carney's signal for a rate change during the Spring 2015 provided across the board strength to the British Pound (GBP). Moreover, the BoJ Governor, Haruhiko Kuroda's readiness to introduce additional stimulus on the drop of 2.0% inflation caused considerable weakness to the Japanese Yen (JPY).
