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."

Following last week's sell off, equity markets regained some ground this week. Economic data was relatively positive with industrial production in particular showing a strong bounce back from its winter lull. And, in a speech on monetary policy, Fed Chair Janet Yellen expressed optimism on the pace of economic recovery, but also reemphasized a lower-for-longer message focused on returning inflation to the Fed's target of 2.0%.

Currency wars are back on the agenda following Draghi talking the Euro down over the weekend and Thomas Jordon, Swiss National Bank's Governor, stating they won't hesitate to take action to defend the EURCHF floor of 1.20 if the Euro continues to weaken. This could lead to some interesting price action on USDCHF which currently trades 70 pips above 2.5yr lows and within a potential bullish wedge.

Weekly Forex Fundamentals | Written by Wells Fargo Securities | Apr 12 14 10:59 GMT
Spring is shaping up to look quite a bit better than the severely cold and snow-ridden winter. This week continued that trend, with improvements in small business optimism, growing consumer credit and fewer jobless claims. Per usual, none of these improving metrics of the U.S. economy point to anything different from our previous outlook: that the economy continues to grow and make improvements, but the pace of that growth is still somewhat subdued.

What is Upsetting Risk Sentiment? Print E-mail
Weekly Forex Fundamentals | Written by Forex.com | Apr 12 14 10:40 GMT
At the end of last week risk sentiment took a knock. The VIX, Wall Street's "fear" index, spiked to its highest level since the Ukraine crisis in March, global stock markets sold off sharply and the yen, traditionally a safe haven, was the best performer in the G10 FX space. As we ended the week, major US equity indices were registering year-to-date losses, erasing gains in recent months. So is this the much-hyped selloff in risk that some people have been looking for?

The week has been light as far as economic data is concerned. Equities held their own for much of it, getting a boost mid-week from the dovish FOMC minutes. But, while broadly supportive, the minutes were unable to counterbalance the heavy selloff that took place among tech and bio-tech stocks on Thursday, as fears of overvaluation took center stage for the third time in as many weeks. International bourses were not immune to the downturn. Coupled with weak Chinese data, both Asian and European indices opened sharply lower to start the Friday session.

Week In FX Americas - A Tough Few Sessions Being A Dollar Bull Print E-mail
Weekly Forex Fundamentals | Written by MarketPulse | Apr 12 14 08:01 GMT
For many dollar bulls their timing has sucked. This week saw many of those bull position bleed that bit more, so much so, that countless of investors decided to pare back their open exposure or in fact close their 'long' dollar positions altogether, at least until things become more clearer. Dollar bulls expecting to score on the back of diverging rates between a hawkish Federal Reserve and dovish European Central Bank (ECB) are the ones that mostly got smacked about. With the release of the dovish FOMC March meeting minutes, and Fed Chair Janet Yellen's recent remarks highlighting "considerable slack" in the economy had many long-dollar positions seeing red as the market drastically priced out an early rate hike by the Fed.

Week In FX Europe - BoE To Judge Slack Before Hike Print E-mail
Weekly Forex Fundamentals | Written by MarketPulse | Apr 12 14 08:00 GMT
The Bank of England rate announcement nearly got lost in the shuffle this week. Yesterday, Governor Carney and his fellow policy makers left both the benchmark rate at +0.5% and the overall size of its bond portfolio at £375b. With the Fed trying to wind down its bond-buying stimulus, the ECB humming and hawing about implementing QE, Governor Carney at the BoE is expected to keep policy unchanged throughout the remainder of this year.

This week marked the first anniversary of the Bank of Japan announcing its new round of monetary easing. The first arrow of Abenomics was launched as Haruhiko Kuroda announced the central bank would double the monetary base in two years to achieve the 2 percent inflation target. The first arrow was deemed a success and it boosted the local stock market as well as depreciated the currency.

Weekly Focus: Risk Markets Nervous Going into the Earnings Season Print E-mail
Weekly Forex Fundamentals | Written by Danske Bank | Apr 11 14 14:19 GMT
Risk markets are nervous going into the earnings season. The fall in leading indicators and stretched valuation warrant caution in stocks short term. Bond yields and EUR/USD are range bound for now. Peripheral bond markets continue to be the big winner. The combination of delayed ECB action and a softer view of the Fed will keep the EUR/USD range bound in the short term.

We had discussed the potential for CAD strength in last week's webinar and we finally saw the follow through following Friday's employment figures. CAD saw reduced unemployment (at 4-month low) with improved job creation which resulted in USDCAD breaking below 1.10 and closing the week at an 8-week low.
