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 Releases To Fuel Volatility In The Market Print E-mail
Weekly Forex Fundamentals | Written by Admiral Markets | Feb 23 15 13:05 GMT
Last week's weaker-than-expected US regional manufacturing indices and housing sector data coupled slightly dovish FOMC meeting minutes and not very disappointing Euro-zone's flash PMI figures pulled-down the US Dollar. Adding to the US Dollar weakness were upbeat UK labor market reports and hawkish Bank of England, signaling to a possible rate-hike later in 2015, as reflected from the minutes of its Feb. 5 meeting. However, Greek uncertainty extended some support for the US Dollar, helping the overall US Dollar index (I.USDX) to register its first weekly gains in last four.

Weekly Wrap: 23rd Feb 2015 Print E-mail

Australian Dollar: Closing at a 2-week high the Aussie needs to break above 0.788 for any chance of continued gains (which would then target 0.80). Following three weeks of range trading and the eyes firmly on Greece again this week there is a good chance it could remain stuck in mud whilst investors mull over their appetite for risk during times of such uncertainty. Domestically the Wage Price Index is expected to nudge higher to 0.7% during a time when wage growth seems to be a global concern. Construction work done and Private Capital Expenditure are expected to come in soft which will likely weigh on the Aussie and keep it contained within range. It would require some particularly soft US data to help it break to the upside to target 0.80 this week.

Possibly Another Week of Volatile Moves In the Forex Market Print E-mail
Weekly Forex Fundamentals | Written by Admiral Markets | Feb 16 15 14:08 GMT
Last week's disappointing US retail sales data, surprisingly higher uptick in weekly jobless claims coupled with improved growth forecast in Bank of England's quarterly inflation report, news of Russia-Ukraine cease-fire agreement and better-than-expected GDP print from the Euro-zone led to a third week of consecutive losses for the overall US Dollar Index (I.USDX). US retail sales declined for a second consecutive month, dropping by 0.8% in January following a 0.9% drop in December. Meanwhile, BOE's hawkish comments in its quarterly inflation, signalling to a possible interest-rate hike in 2016, and a stronger-than-expected 0.3% Euro-zone GDP growth in the last quarter of 2014 contributed towards the US Dollar weakness.

Consumer spending looks to have gotten off to a slow start in 2015. Retail sales fell 0.8 percent in January, barely "better" than the 0.9 percent decline registered in December. As expected, much of the drop stemmed from plummeting sales at gasoline stations - down 9.3 percent on a nominal basis - as prices continued their slide over the better part of the month. However, sales elsewhere were also weak. Excluding gasoline, sales were flat in January with declines at auto dealers, food & beverage stores and clothing retailers offset by modest gains at restaurants & bars, home improvement and online retailers. The control group, which excludes sales of autos, gas, building materials and food services, and is a good proxy of consumer goods spending, shows sales have slowed to a 3.o percent three-month average annualized pace from 4.5 percent back in October.

A relatively quiet week on the data front was overshadowed by overseas political events. On Wednesday, an emergency meeting of euro area finance ministers ended in disarray. A proposed joint statement was pulled at the last minute, following a review by Greek Prime Minister Tsipras, who vetoed the language. Fortunately, on Thursday, at a meeting of EU heads of state, both sides appeared more open to compromise.

Could the BOE Hike Rates in 2015? Print E-mail
Weekly Forex Fundamentals | Written by Forex.com | Feb 14 15 02:32 GMT
The Bank of England's (BOE) first Quarterly Inflation Report (QIR) of 2015 painted an upbeat picture of the UK economy. Although BOE Governor Mark Carney admitted that there was a chance that UK prices could fall into negative territory in the coming months, he did not seem particularly concerned about deflation, instead focusing on the upside risks to growth.

Strong labour market report clears way for Fed hike as soon as June. Market pricing of Fed actions is still too complacent - we expect the USD and treasury yields to go higher. Aggressive easing across Europe - we expect it to underpin low bond yields in Europe. Euro area and Japan appear to be recovering.

Greece Uncertainty To Support US Dollar Bullish Trend Print E-mail
Weekly Forex Fundamentals | Written by Admiral Markets | Feb 09 15 12:41 GMT
Last week until the release of NFP data on Friday, it looked like a corrective pull-back for the US Dollar might have just been triggered on the back of widening US trade deficit and modest pace of growth as reflected in ISM manufacturing PMI. However, Friday's jobs report, that surpassed even the most optimistic estimates, helped US Dollar to erase majority of its weekly loss. In the first month of 2015, the US economy created 257,000 jobs, while the unemployment rate saw a slight up-tick to 5.7% from 5.6% in December. The rise in unemployment rate could be because of higher labor market participation, which is a sign of healthy labor market. Another good sign from the jobs report was a 0.5% rise in average hourly wages, that saw a decline in December. In other important developments that surprised the market last week was the Australian central bank's decision to cut its key benchmark interest rate to a record low of 2.25%. The varying effect of various economic developments helped the overall US Dollar Index (I.USDX) to end the week on a flat note, nearly unchanged for the previous week.

Overall the economic data this week continued to support the case for solid economic activity. There were signs, however, that some sectors of the economy are coming under pressure given the lower oil prices and weak global demand. The employment report for January indicated continued job growth, with 257,000 jobs added for the month. December's personal income and spending report showed that consumer spending downshifted in the final month of last year. The ISM-manufacturing and factory orders report reflected some of the struggles facing the manufacturing sector amid slow global demand, a trend also evident in the December international trade report.

After a miserable January, markets began February on an upbeat note. Equities got an early boost from energy stocks, which rallied on the back of an oil price rebound. Crude prices began to recover late last week, following a weekly report from Baker Hughes that indicated the number of rigs drilling for oil in the U.S. fell by 94 to 1,223 from the previous week.
