Forex Fundamental Reports Archives

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."



EUR/USD - Over the Cliff We Go? Print E-mail
Fundamental Archives | Written by MarketPulse | Dec 31 12 14:27 GMT
On the final trading day of 2012, EUR/USD has edged lower, and has fallen below the 1.32 level. Despite intensive talks in Washington to try and avert the fiscal cliff, the likelihood of a last minute breakthrough on Capitol Hill before the January 1st deadline does not appear likely. Market releases ended the year on a high note, as US Pending Home Sales jumped 1.7%, well above the forecast of a 0.3% decline. With the markets closed on Tuesday for the New Year's holiday, trading volumes remain thin. This has reduced liquidity and could result in increased volatility as we wind up 2012. There are no scheduled releases from the Euro-zone or the US on Monday.

Fundamental Archives | Written by Swissquote Bank SA | Dec 31 12 10:54 GMT
The finally-ending 2013 has been a difficult year for the World's economy, and it is still not over. Despite the last-minute good news from China and the recovery hopes from Japan, the European debt crisis, China's slowing growth, and the US "fiscal cliff" are some of the major headlines which will, apparently, be carried over the New Year. As of the last day-of-the-year, there is no time to relax as the US "fiscal cliff" will finally take effect in less than 24 hours, while the German Chancellor Merkel announces that "the economic environment will be more difficult in 2013." On Friday's session, the S&P500 dropped to 1,402.43; Nasdaq Composite index lost 0.8572%, while Down Jones was down by 1.2080%.

The French economy expanded less than initially was expected, adding to concerns that the recovery may be too weak to help President Francois Hollande's government reduce unemployment, which is currently at a 15-year high, and improve the overall economic situation. Nation's gross domestic product rose 0.1% in the third quarter, compared to a 0.2% growth estimated on Nov.15. The moderate growth and a return to positive territory provided some comfort and confounded initial expectations that Europe's second largest economy may slip into recession in the last quarter of 2012. At the same time, imports dropped by 0.5%, while exports accelerated slightly by 0.6%.

China Smiles, "Cliff" Uncertainty Persists Print E-mail
Fundamental Archives | Written by Swissquote Bank SA | Dec 31 12 08:52 GMT
Good news came from China to compensate the "fiscal cliff" panic as the automatic spending cuts and tax increases will take action as soon as tomorrow, and no deal has been done yet. Harry Reid stated that "Democrats are not in position to make counteroffer to latest republican proposal and that there is still significant distance between Republicans and Democrats in Fiscal Cliff Negotiations." However, Chinese economic data saved the day. The HSBC China Manufacturing PMI jumped to 51.5 (vs. last month's 50.9), and HSBC December China PMI New orders sub-index reached 52.9 (both highest since 2011).
