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."



Major Events To Watch In The Week Ahead Print E-mail
Weekly Forex Fundamentals | Written by Admiral Markets | Jul 28 14 13:08 GMT
Despite of last week's mixed economic releases from the US, ranging from easing inflation data, slow moving housing sector data (existing and new home sales data) and durable goods orders beating expectations, the US Dollar managed to register yet another week of gains against most major currencies. Moving forwards, top-tier US economic releases, including the FOMC decision, Non-Farm Payrolls and second-quarter GDP reading, are likely to dominate this week's economic calendar.

Weekly Forex Fundamentals | Written by Wells Fargo Securities | Jul 26 14 04:08 GMT
Inflation has picked up recently and although we expect it to continue to firm as the economy gains momentum, we maintain our expectations that the Fed will raise rates in mid-2015 (see Interest Rate Watch). In June, the consumer price index finally eased some, rising 0.3 percent in the month. Energy prices drove the headline number higher, with gasoline prices rising 3.3 percent. However, it appears that gasoline prices have already retreated this month, which should help boost consumption as lower pump prices allow for spending elsewhere.

The Weekly Bottom Line Print E-mail
Weekly Forex Fundamentals | Written by TD Bank Financial Group | Jul 26 14 03:29 GMT
The week started off with markets still digesting the implications of last week's events in the Ukraine and Gaza. However, by Tuesday, geopolitical worries took a backseat and attention turned to company earnings and economic data. Generally positive readings on both the earnings and data fronts led equities to gain over three consecutive days to Thursday. Meanwhile, after sliding on geopolitical concerns on Monday, bond yields held steady until Thursday when a surprise drop in initial jobless claims, which fell to their lowest level since February 2006, led to a rise in yields. By Friday however, several factors, including a renewed bout of geopolitical concerns, led to a reversal in these trends, with yields and the S&P500 falling at time of writing.

Week in FX America - Canada's Loonie Beaten And Bloodied Print E-mail
Weekly Forex Fundamentals | Written by MarketPulse | Jul 26 14 03:23 GMT
Markets may still be underpricing geopolitical risk to a certain extent, but no one has told that to the main commodity currencies as they continue to struggle. The Kiwi remains under pressure from Governor Wheeler at the RBNZ "dovish tightening" moves mid-week ($0.8546). He hikes and then tells "c'est tout" for now. His equal at the RBA, Governor Stevens, continues to try and verbally beat his Aussie lower (0.9404). Governor Poloz at the BoC is the odd man out, he alone is not influencing the CAD, remaining somewhat neutral and in the shadows.

Weekly Forex Fundamentals | Written by MarketPulse | Jul 26 14 03:22 GMT
The mighty dollar aims to exit this highly charged geopolitical week on the front foot despite the many forex investors who remain on the sidelines ahead of a slew of data next week. Investors continue to search for a better sense of direction, rather than being confined to shifting the 'goal' posts -- they want to build new ones.

Week in FX Asia - IMF Reduces Growth Forecast China Answers with Strong Manufacturing Print E-mail
Weekly Forex Fundamentals | Written by MarketPulse | Jul 26 14 03:21 GMT
This week the IMF reduced its global growth forecast and in particular reduced China from 7.6% to 7.4% with a comment aimed at lower internal demand. The Markit/HSBC Purchasing Managers Index contradicted the Fund's assessment by posting an expansionary reading in June. Manufacturing output, orders and prices rose pointing to a healthier demand for Chinese products.

Dollar Watch: The Buck Fights Back Print E-mail
Weekly Forex Fundamentals | Written by Forex.com | Jul 26 14 03:19 GMT
Here at FOREX.com we have been talking about the stubborn weakness in the dollar since the start of 2014. However, in the last couple of weeks the dollar has started to show signs of life that we think are worth watching closely. After rallying the week of 14th July, the advance gathered pace last week and the dollar index closed the European session above 80.85 - the 100-week moving average and a key level of resistance.

Weekly Forex Fundamentals | Written by Wells Fargo Securities | Jul 19 14 08:16 GMT
Economic data this week continued to support the case for more robust economic growth in the second quarter. Retail sales posted another improvement in June, but the underlying details of the report suggested that real consumer spending in the second quarter should come in close to our projection of 2.2 percent. Inflation pressures continued to slowly edge higher according to the producer price index. The industrial sector also posted improvement in June, ending the quarter at a 5.5 percent annualized rate. Additionally, it appears that firms are building inventories once again this quarter, suggesting that inventories will also contribute to top line GDP growth in Q2.
