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."

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.

The Weekly Bottom Line Print E-mail
Weekly Forex Fundamentals | Written by TD Bank Financial Group | Jul 19 14 07:44 GMT
The passing week was busy for investors. A slew of mixed economic data was gauged in context with Chair Yellen's mid-week testimony to Congress. The Chair's relatively dovish remarks and lack of concern regarding asset valuations was enough, alongside some positive manufacturing and labor market data, to lead the Dow Jones Industrial Average to another intraday record on Thursday morning. But, the mood soured thereafter and volatility increased as news broke of the downing of a Malaysian jetliner in eastern Ukraine - risking further escalation of tensions between the west and Russia. Russian assets sold off sharply with safe-havens gaining. But, so far the impact on U.S. markets was contained with equities regaining some lost ground comforted by continuing central bank accommodation.

Is the Dollar Rebound Here to Stay? Print E-mail
Weekly Forex Fundamentals | Written by Forex.com | Jul 19 14 07:38 GMT
One of the most frustrating trades of the year so far has been the decline in the dollar, but stories of the greenback's demise might be greatly exaggerated after comments from Fed chairwoman Janet Yellen last week prompted a dollar rebound. The dollar index, or the dollar against a basket of its largest trading partners, broke above a key level of resistance at 80.26 - the 200-day moving average - triggering a move back to the highest level for a month.

Week in FX Americas - Inflation Concerns Come to the Fore Print E-mail
Weekly Forex Fundamentals | Written by MarketPulse | Jul 19 14 07:18 GMT
Despite the geopolitical event risk in play, a couple of North American economic releases on Friday gauged consumer sentiment and inflation concerns.

In the U.S, the preliminary University of Michigan Consumer Sentiment Index for July declined to 81.3 from a final June reading of 82.5. This month's early reading was well below the 83 prints expected. The report would suggest that U.S. consumers seem to be more cautious about their own economy's future. Many analysts had expected the American consumer to ramp up personal spending in the second quarter; especially since so many people stayed home during the particularly harsh winter.

Week in FX Europe - German Bunds Remain Rich, Gold Slips Print E-mail
Weekly Forex Fundamentals | Written by MarketPulse | Jul 19 14 07:16 GMT
The news of the shooting down of Malaysian airliner near the Russia-Ukraine border has understandably shaken global markets. Nevertheless, the harsh reality is that during the first half of this year, geopolitical events have had a relatively short lifespan. With the exception of Asia, major bourses were trading in the red for a period of time, and many have managed to claw their way back to being slightly offside or in neutral territory as investors try to close out the week.

Week In FX Asia - Australasia Looks to EU, US Markets for Direction Print E-mail
Weekly Forex Fundamentals | Written by MarketPulse | Jul 18 14 11:13 GMT
During the first half of this year geo-political events have had a relatively short life span. Will this time around be any different? Despite most global markets so far ending the week with a heavy heart, Asian in particular seems keen to see the reaction from their Euro and American counterparts before wholly committing to the next step. It's not surprising that investor's first move predictably was of risk rejection in the Asian market, particularly after digesting the MAS flight 17 downing news and the Israel/Gaza offensive. Investor's obvious reaction was to seek sanctuary. This saw equities on the back foot, a bid for bonds and gold, and a demand for safe haven currencies like the CHF and JPY. The Aussie once again looked 'soft' at the lows AUD$0.9320/25, but like a rising phoenix the currency remains brimming with support at lower levels, allowing the antipodean currencies to begin to retrace their steps (AUD$0.9390 and NZD$0.8682). Perhaps the strongest catalyst for the Asian retracement was to see the ¥101.10 level impenetrable, in fact, it has since been able to push USD/JPY higher.

A Week Full of Market-Moving Events Print E-mail
Weekly Forex Fundamentals | Written by Admiral Markets | Jul 14 14 14:44 GMT
Last week, minutes from the June FOMC meeting revealed a broad agreement among members to end the central bank's monthly bond purchase program by October, subject to the recent improvement in the US labor market and economic conditions remaining on track. Apart from the release of the Fed minutes, the US economic calendar was devoid of any important economic releases; however, global events, ranging from the news of banking turmoil in Portugal that rocked financial markets to softer-than-expected economic data from UK, Australia, China and Canada, helped the US Dollar to recover from weekly lows.

Small business confidence dipped in June, with the NFIB optimism index more than reversing last month's gain. The downward reversion to first quarter GDP, which showed the economy contracting sharply, looks to have shaken small businesses as the net share of firms expecting conditions to improve over the next six months tumbled 10 points.
