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."



Week in FX Asia - Yen Continues to Slide Awaiting Kuroda at Jackson Hole Print E-mail
Weekly Forex Fundamentals | Written by MarketPulse | Aug 22 14 19:36 GMT
The JPY continues to weaken versus the USD this week. Strong manufacturing numbers boosted industrial hopes, but the main focus was on the world's largest central banks. The gathering of policymakers in Jackson Hole Wyoming was the main focus on a week that saw dissent from the minutes of the Federal Reserve and the Bank of England. The USD/JPY continues to head higher and blew past the 103 level. It remains to be seen if the Bank of Japan's Governor Kuroda could see the currency even lower after his speech on Saturday. Resistance for the pair sits firmly in the 104 level. After this week the new support line rests on 103.08

In July, Fed Chair Janet Yellen characterized the 0.3 percent June increase in CPI inflation as "noisy". Given other indications of the potential for rising inflation such as the recent run-up in the prices component of many of the purchasing managers' surveys and some indication of wage pressures - there was some concern that the Fed was being lax about inflation and that more upside surprises might portend a rate increase sooner than the Fed's guidance might suggest. Some of those concerns were allayed earlier this week when the CPI report for July showed a month-over-month increase of just 0.1 percent, leaving the year-over-year rate unchanged at 1.9 percent. One swing factor in recent inflation trends is energy prices. After recording strong gains in May and June, energy prices fell 0.3 percent last month as all energy components recorded modest declines.

Weekly Forex Fundamentals | Written by TD Bank Financial Group | Aug 22 14 18:02 GMT
This week has been a good one for equities. Broad U.S. market indices recorded consistent gains through Thursday as a string of strong domestic data releases and anticipation for dovish remarks by Fed Chair Yellen at the Jackson Hole symposium Friday morning were enough to offset some of the hawkish undertones apparent in the minutes from the FOMC's July meeting. But, with Yellen's remarks sounding decidedly less dovish - contrary to recent Jackson Hole keynote addresses - the equity rally ran out of steam.

Week In FX Europe - Russia Has Euro Stocks Offside Print E-mail
Weekly Forex Fundamentals | Written by MarketPulse | Aug 22 14 17:40 GMT
Ms. Yellen has come and gone and her labor and rate thoughts will be deciphered in greater detail after the weekend. The European session is closing on the "wrong side of right" as fresh signs of escalation to the conflict in Ukraine is again unnerving investors. Euro equity bourses have finished the week in the red after a Russian aid convoy entered into Ukraine territory. This so-called humanitarian act is being viewed as an act of Russian aggression. Due to the strong Russian/German trade ties, the German DAX is very sensitive to any increase in tension with Moscow and the West, closing out the day down -0.7%.

Week In FX Americas - Yellen Uninspiring, Russian Moves in Focus Print E-mail
Weekly Forex Fundamentals | Written by MarketPulse | Aug 22 14 16:02 GMT
Capital Market remains on high alert as they try to decipher the subtle clues from Fed Chair Yellen's speech at Jackson Hole Economic Symposium and Russia's latest military moves on the Ukraine border. In respect to the Fed, dealers are looking for a timeline on the possibility of US policy makers tightening current monetary policy. To investors, US policy is pretty much set in stone with zero-interest rate policy and quantitative easing. They see very few other options, unless the Fed wants to crash equity markets.

Can the S&P 500 Break 2000? Print E-mail
Weekly Forex Fundamentals | Written by Danske Bank | Aug 22 14 15:59 GMT
After a dismal start to the month, the S&P 500 rallied to a record high last week and is nearing an important psychological resistance zone around 2,000. If the index manages to break through this level, it should bode well for US stocks in the near-term. The strong performance of US stocks over the last couple of weeks can be attributed to easing geopolitical tensions, a strong earnings season and encouraging US economic data, which helped the market brush off mildly hawkish minutes from the Fed last week.

Weekly Focus: Deflation Fears Continue to Grow Print E-mail
Weekly Forex Fundamentals | Written by Danske Bank | Aug 22 14 15:15 GMT
US and Chinese growth are set to moderate in H2 but we expect global growth to continue to be robust and provide support to risk assets. Euro manufacturing is slowing, while the domestic sector remains strong, which suggests the slowdown is driven by external factors. We look for a pickup in growth again later this year. Bond yields have been driven lower by structural flows, data is disappointing and inflation is lower. The EUR/USD trend continues lower on strong divergence in policy and economic performance.

This week's slate of data releases continued to send mixed messages on the current state of the economy. On one hand, economic conditions continued to improve as illustrated by the pickup in job openings this week. On the other hand, retail sales, initial jobless claims and lower inflation pressure, as seen in the import price index and producer price index, support the Fed's current stance on keeping monetary policy easy.

As summer is drawing closer to an end, the U.S. economy continues to bask in the late summer glow. Following a stumble in the first quarter of the year, economic growth bounced back decisively in the second quarter, advancing by 4% in annualized terms. Recent higher-frequency indicators, such as such as manufacturing and non-manufacturing PMIs, consumer and business confidence, have also been broadly optimistic, offering hope that the robust growth momentum will be sustained in the second half of the year.
