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."

Although the week was relatively light on U.S. economic releases, we were not short on housing market data. Besting expectations, housing starts rose 4.8 percent in June to a 1.189 million annual rate, reaching a four-month high. Average starts in the first half of the year are running almost 8 percent higher relative to the same period a year earlier. Overall permits also advanced during the month, but are down on a year-ago basis largely due to noise in the data from a 2015 tax-related jump in new apartment construction in New York, making year-over-year comparisons difficult. That said, underlying fundamentals and pent-up demand still suggest single- and multifamily starts will continue to post gains in the coming months.

Weekly Forex Fundamentals | Written by TD Bank Financial Group | Jul 23 16 11:02 GMT
Investor sentiment continued to improve through most of the week, driving risk assets higher. U.S. equity benchmarks posted several consecutive record daily highs and have risen nearly 10% from their post-Brexit referendum trough. Global equities, which remain some 6% off their mid-2015 peaks, have also been on a tear. The gains are partly related to a relatively strong earnings season, particularly in the U.S., where second quarter profits came in stronger than expected. Sentiment has been further buoyed by relatively firm commodity prices, as oil inventories at major U.S. hubs are beginning to exhibit modest declines. Markets have also been supported by a reduction in global financial market volatility and expectations of further central bank easing.

Market Review & Outlook: Focus Shifts Back to the Fed Print E-mail
Weekly Forex Fundamentals | Written by Forex.com | Jul 23 16 10:56 GMT
Markets during the past week have been characterized mostly by a continued rally to new record highs for equity markets, most notably in the US where earnings season has entered full swing. Stock indexes have been buoyed by largely better-than-expected earnings reports, albeit on relatively low expectations. Also helping stocks to continue their climb recently have been the prevailing accommodative stances among major central banks, including those in the UK, Japan, and the Eurozone. Both the Bank of England (BoE) and the European Central Bank (ECB) opted to keep interest rates unchanged and refrain from introducing new stimulus measures in their policy statements within the past two weeks.

The U.S. Federal Reserve and the Bank of Japan (BOJ) are faced with different challenges this week. The Fed is facing moderate growth in the U.S. and the timing of its next interest rate hike will be affected by the ongoing presidential electoral campaign. The BoJ has been tasked, since Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe was elected, to end decades of deflation and get the economy back on track.

As the international outlook remains very much in the spotlight, the economic data show that the U.S. narrative remains largely unchanged. On the inflation front, prices continue to firm but at a gradual pace. The consumer price index (CPI) climbed 0.2 percent in June and on a year-ago basis held steady at 1.0 percent, where it has hovered for most of 2016. Excluding food and energy, the core CPI ticked up to 2.3 percent year-overyear. The divergence between core services and core goods inflation remained intact, with core services price growth matching the cycle high and core goods still in deflation territory (top chart). The producer price index (PPI) increased a solid 0.5 percent in June, and over the past three months the PPI has increased at the strongest pace since 2011. On a year-ago basis, the PPI is at an 18 month high. That high, however, is a meager 0.3 percent and serves as a reminder that inflation remains relatively tame despite recent gains.

Following on the heels of a strong payrolls report last week, economic indicators continued to indicate the U.S. economy remains resilient in the face of global volatility. While they came atop of downwardly revised May figures, retail sales rose 0.6% in June, blowing past the market expectation of a paltry 0.1% gain. This may finally put to rest any lingering concerns about the U.S. consumer voiced earlier this year after a weak first quarter performance. In fact, the latest data suggests that the U.S. economy is on track to expand about 2.5% in the second quarter, while continued job and wage gains should enable the U.S. consumer to remain the economic driver in the coming quarters.

Fundamental Recap: Stimulus Talk Moves Markets Print E-mail
Weekly Forex Fundamentals | Written by Forex.com | Jul 16 16 07:30 GMT
With central banks in renewed stimulus mode and market concerns over Brexit consequences having increasingly faded into the background, this past week has largely been one of expanded risk appetite for global financial markets. Stocks surged as yield-seeking investors bid up US equity markets to uncharted territory, with both the Dow Jones Industrial Average and S&P 500 reaching progressively higher all-time highs throughout the week. European stock markets also continued to rise, as did Japan's Nikkei index. Meanwhile, traditional safe haven assets like gold and the Japanese yen retreated sharply as safety took a back seat to the pursuit of yield.

As financial markets continue to digest the outcome of Britain's referendum decision to leave the EU, attention this week turned back to the American economy where data were generally upbeat. ISM indexes for both the manufacturing and non-manufacturing sectors showed activity picked up in June. This news, however, paled in comparison to the blockbuster job report on Friday, which reported 287k positions added to non-farm payrolls last month.
