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."

Weekly Forex Fundamentals | Written by Wells Fargo Securities | Dec 13 14 03:16 GMT
Economic data this week was upbeat reinforcing our view for continued robust growth in the fourth quarter. The most impressive data point this week came from the November retail sales report that showed sales climbing 0.7 percent for the month while October sales were revised higher. With the strong pace of sales, inventory building in the fourth quarter looks like it will only slightly add to growth. Inflation data for November reflected the continued slide in oil prices with declines in both the producer price index and the import price index. The Labor Department's job openings data continued to reflect a tightening labor market as the number of job openings continue to climb.

Weekly Forex Fundamentals | Written by TD Bank Financial Group | Dec 13 14 03:00 GMT
It was a crude start to the week for U.S. financial markets, with last Friday's blockbuster payrolls report quickly fading into the background as the theme of weaker global growth stepped back into the lime light. Both the S&P500 and DJ30 retreated on the week, falling by 2.8% and 2.7%, respectively. Industrial commodities also continued their descent lower, with the WTI benchmark reaching a fresh new low $58 a barrel, as growing inventories and downwardly revised demand forecasts by both OPEC and the EIA weighed on the price of crude.

If PM Abe's Victory is in the Bag, What Does That Mean for JPY? Print E-mail
Weekly Forex Fundamentals | Written by Forex.com | Dec 13 14 02:49 GMT
On Sunday 14th December, Japan will head to the polls to vote in the Lower House Election. This snap election was called by President Abe to ensure that he has the public's backing for his economic reform plans after the economy contracted in the third quarter. Ironically, as the election has neared, Abe has distanced himself from his economic reform program and plans to reign in Japan's huge debt. For example, he has delayed the second installment of the increase in the sales tax, instead focusing on ways to add more stimulus and end the economic malaise that Japan finds itself in.

Weekly Forex Fundamentals | Written by Danske Bank | Dec 13 14 02:38 GMT
Markets correct, but it is likely to be temporary. The short-term outlook for oil is weak. Lower oil prices give stronger baseline growth but higher tail risk. Euro area is bottoming, US looks strong. Norges Bank delivered a surprise rate cut and its new interest rate path suggests a 50- 50 probability of a rate cut again before June.

Weekly Forex Fundamentals | Written by Wells Fargo Securities | Dec 06 14 02:25 GMT
Nearly every major economic indicator released this week pointed to an expanding U.S. economy. The massive 321,000-payroll gain in November was by far the biggest news. Most industries saw employment gains accelerate in the month, most notably in construction, retail trade, financial activities and professional & business services. The household survey did not corroborate the payroll number's good news, with the unemployment rate inching slightly higher on an unrounded basis. This should not cause alarm, however, as the meager 4,000 workers added in November followed a gargantuan 683,000 workers gained in October, putting the three-month average over 300,000. Average hourly earnings jumped 0.4 percent in the month, though are still up just 2.1 percent year over year. In addition, the work week ticked upward. More jobs, higher wages, longer hours and lower gas prices bode well for the U.S. consumer as we move further into the holiday shopping season.
