    Default Fundamental Analysis for EUR/GBP: July 29, 2016

    The EUR/GBP pair increased by 62 points after the euro went up and the sterling pound declined during Thursday’s session. The currency pair is presently trading at 0.8425 points. The British pound still continued its decline even after a reported second-quarter increase in UK’s economic growth, whose increase was initially seen to be a positive sign for the currency pair.

    The UK economy went up by 0.6% during the second-quarter which was sealed by the controversial Brexit vote, a significant increase compared to the 0.4% during the first quarter of 2016. The British pound plummeted its lowest in two weeks after Bank of England policymaker Martin Weale said that PMI surveys would be of importance during BoE’s next policy meeting. He also added that in order for an interest rate cut to happen, there must be a concrete evidence of the UK economy losing its strength.

    In July, the Bank of England shocked the financial market when it refused to snip the benchmark for the borrowing cost from its all-time low of 0.5%. However, decision details from last week’s BoE meeting showed that most policymakers will be expected to endorse a yet unknown set of measures in order to help strengthen Britain’s economy.

    Default Fundamental Analysis for EUR/GBP: August 3, 2016

    The EUR/GBP pair traded at 0.8462 points prior to the Bank of England meeting this coming Thursday. Certain factors may weigh in on the value of the said currency pair, such as the Bank of England’s prospective move to cut its base rates below the US rates, which can add to its passive quantitative easing. However, some major banks are speculating that the dollar might be prone to a squeeze following the release of data on Friday.

    The EUR has surprisingly done well in spite of the controversy brought about by the Brexit vote three weeks ago. It traded slightly lower than the dollar but is still higher compared to its value last February and has traded higher against the pound, its highest since three years ago. But the IMF has already stressed that Brexit is somewhat more damaging to the EU economy than it is for Great Britain, and the latest ZEW survey has shown reports of confidence going down, with economic sentiment indicators decreasing to its lowest levels since Germany’s financial crisis last 2012.

    Some economists believe that this data means that investors are more concerned with Brexit’s effects on the German economy than the financial market’s response to Brexit.

    Default Fundamental Analysis for GBP/USD: August 5, 2016

    The cable pair GBP/USD went down by 150 points after the good news brought about by the Bank of England. The BoE added stimulus by cutting its rates, which increased the sterling pound’s trading value at 1.3165. The Bank of England increased its asset purchases by 425 billion pounds and cut 0.25% from its lending rates. It has also announced its plans to follow in ECB’s footsteps by buying corporate bonds. Money markets were also completely priced in a quarter-point decrease to the main rates of the central bank, and investors and economists believe that there will soon be new measures which can cause the economy to surge after the UK’s decision to cut itself off from the European Union.

    On the other hand, the USD remained firm in spite of Thursday’s most recent low in six weeks, while the GBP remained in a tight range on top of renewed anticipation that the BoE will be cutting its interest rates for the first time since 2009 in an attempt to stave off a possible recession.

    The dollar index fell flat at 95.56 on top of a six-week low of 95.003 early this week. The most recent focus for the USD is the expected release of US jobs data on Friday. It is expected that this will cause the Federal Reserve to increase its interest rates on the latter part of the year. US futures interest rates are suggesting a 40% chance of the Fed increasing its interest rates this coming December.

    Default Fundamental Analysis for USD/CAD: August 8, 2016

    The USD/CAD pair experienced an upsurge at 1.3175 after employment data in Canada disheartened investors, while US jobs data went up at an impressive rate. The week’s forecast for the greenback showed a continued surge for the currency pair. According to Statistic Canada’s labour force survey, the market lost a total of 31,200 in jobs last July, the biggest one-month drop in the last five years. Another report also showed Canada’s international trade deficit, which reached up to $3.6 billion last June.

    The said data caused the CAD to go even lower against the greenback, which caused a reversal of a short-term moderate strength. The Canadian economy was deprived of one of the most crucial support in the past years because of the stagnant consumer demand during the last two months. This is while the other sources of growth, like energy patch, business investment, and manufacturing continue its struggle.

    Analysts are suggesting that a dip in the Q2 GDP is likely to happen, mainly because of the losses incurred after the Alberta wildfires. Short-term interest differentials in the USD/CAD pair will remain in the USD’s favor due to a divergence in the general growth trends. The CAD also weakens during the latter part of the year, and seasonal considerations are being foreseen for the said pair.

    Default Fundamental Analysis for AUD/USD: August 9, 2016

    The AUD/USD pair traded lower after disappointments brought about by Chinese trade numbers. The AUD is currently trading at 0.7609, which is higher than its anticipated trading range. The currency did not seem to be affected by plummeting Chinese exports which created hopes for stimuli from the PBOC. The USD eased by a small amount this week after the release of jobs data. Traders are anticipating the rate decision of the Reserve Bank of New Zealand this week and a statement from the RBA head following this week’s rate decision release.

    The USD closed Friday’s session with nearly 0.5% in terms of gains while the US 10-year treasury yields went up by 10 basis points to hit 1.59%. The USD traded at 96.11 by Monday morning, putting pressure on the Australian dollar after coming close enough to a multi-month high just before the release of payroll reports.

    China’s total export value dipped by 6.25%, decreasing from $192.01 billion to $180.3 billion in a span of just one month. Exports during the first half of the year also went down by 2.1% every year. This significant decrease in Chinese export numbers show that a weak yuan won’t necessarily become an advantage on the part of exporters, particularly in the textile industry, whose export reports showed a decline at 3.7% during the first half of every year.

    The PBOC surprised financial markets after devaluing the yuan by decreasing its daily reference rate at 1.87% against the USD. It also bolstered its slow economy by front-lining its stimulus program, with banks allowing lending of up to billions of dollars to various business in order to maintain cash flow in the economy.

    Default Fundamental Analysis for USD/JPY: August 10, 2016

    The USD/JPY pair plummeted by 11 points, trading at 102.34 after the release of China’s inflation data proved to be better than its forecast. This helped the yen to rally since the Chinese economic situation might see some improvement. Investors are now awaiting more data from Japan, Bank of Japan comments and government statement about stimulus programs. The JPY was initially sent higher by investors, however its fiscal stimulus failed to meet the high expectations set by the market. The USD, on the other hand, went up by a significant amount following a positive US labor market report, erasing most of JPY’s early-week gains.

    The Japanese economic stimulus remains as the main focus since BoJ will be releasing its Summary of Opinions from the monetary policy announcement last July 29. This particular BoJ statement has previously caused the JPY to surge since the new policy fell short of its previous expectations. The Bank of Japan is currently in a tight position as it has little room for more stimulus after its easing regulatory policies. However, BoJ predicts that it will be able to reach its headline inflation rate by 2017. However, only its officials believe in BoJ’s ability to reach its targets, since both businesses and consumers are in disagreement with BoJ’s prediction.

    Default Fundamental Analysis for EUR/JPY: August 11, 2016

    The EUR/JPY pair went down further after Wednesday’s session, trading at 113.006, going down by 0.264 or -0.23%. The tight trading range remained as a result of the absence of major economic and political news from Japan and the eurozone. However, Japan’s Tertiary Industry Activity Index was released before the opening of Wednesday’s session and showed an increase by 0.8%, exceeding the initial report expectations which only predicted a 0.3% increase.

    Volatility and volume levels were particularly light during Wednesday, since the Japanese public holiday on Thursday will mean closed markets, with volumes expected to be below average. Some major market players will also be having an extended weekend, as most of them will be absent on Friday as well. The EUR/JPY is expected to weaken further due to disappointments caused by stimulus programs from BoJ and the Japanese government, and the ECB is not expected to release another statement until September 8.

    The overall trend prediction for EUR/JPY is a decrease in its rates, and is expected to continue, with a possible post-Brexit low of 109.519. An increase in selling pressure is also expected to manifest during the latter part of this year, especially once UK files Article 50 and formerly relieves its membership in the European Union.

    Default Fundamental Analysis for AUD/USD: August 15, 2016

    The AUD/USD pair ended last week’s session below its recent high of 0.77, trading at 0.7646. However, the pair remains strong as it enters into a new trading week after traders adjust to Friday’s sudden decrease, although China will be weighing in on the markets following a possible stimulus from PBOC. On the other hand, the RBA reduced its rates by 25 bps and the RBNZ followed suit, applying a 25 bps reduction rate as well.

    Prior to this particular move of New Zealand and Australian central banks, RBA’s Glenn Stevens previously denied that cutbacks on interest rates can help in improving the Australian economy. Stevens also added that Australia’s economic slowdown is only natural, given its constant growth during the past few years. He also noted that Australian households will take a while before they can start spending again since a significant amount of domestic debt has put households in tighter positions.

    The RBA representative also added that Australia’s lack of a demographic dividend has contributed to the slowing down of the GDP growth. The demographic dividend is the slow growth of the overall working population as compared to the general population growth, a problem which is also being dealt with by Japan. However, Steven’s speech did not have any impact on the AUD, which is up by 0.4% against the US dollar after the USD decreased its value following the release of the US productivity data since traders have already speculated that the Federal Reserve would not have an increase in its rates.

    Default Fundamental Analysis for NZD/USD: August 16, 2016

    The NZD/USD pair weakened its stance and traded down at 0.7177, although this is still a relatively strong value compared to its counterparts. Investors are taking into consideration China’s mixed signals and the lack of stimulus from the People’s Bank of China. The RBA and RBNZ statements on its rate decisions are making investors and traders uneasy. The retail sales volume rose by 2.3% last June, which is the biggest increase in the last nine years. This is in comparison with a 1% increase last year.

    According to Statistics New Zealand, the increase was mainly caused by surges in vehicle sales, personal and pharmaceutical products, and more people spending on eating and drinking out. The retail sales’ total value rose from 2.2% last quarter to almost $20 billion. According to Westpac economist Satish Ranchhod, consumers are benefiting from low inflation and interest rates, which are putting money back in domestic pockets. A strengthened tourist season and strong migration rates are also helping in the surge in spending figures.

    Zespri has also stated that it has already improved its pre-export checking procedures, which has already been approved by the MPI, who is currently advising China with regards to kiwifruit exports. Kiwifruit sales has also exceeded last year’s total volume sales, with another 7 million kiwifruit trays in line for export this coming season.

    Default Fundamental Analysis for EUR/JPY: August 18, 2016

    The EUR/JPY pair continued its tight range-trading during Wednesday’s session after trading at 113.195, since traders are now focusing on the minutes from the US Federal Reserve Bank’s July meeting.

    The lack of significant economic news from both Japan and the eurozone has led to decreased volatility and volume levels, with the currency pair now range-bound after reaching its lowest level in a month last August 5 at 112.308. However, this unnatural chart pattern might lead to excessive volatility levels, and investors should brace themselves for possibly unexpected economic news.

    The ECB is not expected to release a statement until September 8 and the BoJ has apparently run out of economic stimuli, so traders must expect a dull period for the EUR/JPY pair until economic stimuli drives the pair back in activity.

    On Thursday, investors are expected to react to several Japanese reports, including the Adjust Trade Balance, where it is expected to be released at 0.14 trillion yen. Japanese exports are expected to decrease by up to 14.0%. Meanwhile, July’s trade balance is expected to fall from 693 billion yen to 284 billion yen.
