Thursday, 18 December 2014 - Market Commentary
Daily currency news provided by UkForex

: UK data released yesterday morning didn’t have too much of an impact on the pound. It showed that wage growth picked up with earnings growing faster than inflation again whilst the rate of unemployment remained unchanged at 6%. The Bank of England MPC minutes were also released, but the voting was unchanged from last time, showing that policy makers voted 7-2 to keep interest rates on hold. GBP/USD ticked along close to and above 1.57 but as the day went on and we got closer to the much anticipated FOMC statement, it started to fall. The Fed left the phrase ‘considerable time’ in the statement. A CNBC report sums it up quite nicely: “though the statement remained in, the context changed. Instead of dropping the language, it offered a softening of the tone that indicated it was still prepared to hike, though perhaps not as close as the market anticipated.” The change in language saw the greenback strengthen and GBP/USD fell to a low of 1.5584. The Fed’s growth forecasts were pretty much unchanged but they did lower their predictions for inflation. This came after US inflation data - released earlier in the day - showed that US CPI declined 0.3% in November vs. expectations for a fall of 0.1%, due in large part to the fall in gasoline prices. GBP/USD remains on the back foot this morning and trades at 1.5585.
We expect a range today in the GBP/USD rate of 1.5580 to 1.5690

: The dollar is firmer across the board this morning which means EUR/USD is down at 1.2320. It dropped to a low of 1.2280 overnight following the Fed statement. Meanwhile the headlines on Russia continue to flow and the volatility continues to be felt throughout emerging markets and across rates. In fact the rouble is strengthening this morning in advance of a Putin press conference. The factors influencing the euro currently seem to be largely external and that’s likely to be the case in the run up to the end of the week too. Meanwhile, the euro has weakened vs. GBP and GBP/EUR opens this morning at 1.2685.
We expect a range today in the GBP/EUR rate of 1.2635 to 1.2710

: The FOMC statement was the dominant headline yesterday and both AUD/USD and NZD/USD snapped lower following the event. The kiwi has recovered though, mainly in response to stronger than expected Q3 GDP which printed at +1.0% vs. expectations for +0.7%. NZD/USD opens this morning in London at .7740 having dipped to a low of .7680 overnight. Commodities have also bounced a little over the last 24 hours too and this has supported both currencies – oil and gold are both higher this morning.
We expect a range today in the GBP/AUD rate of 1.9020 to 1.9180
We expect a range today in the GBP/NZD rate of 2.0100 to 2.0290

The Euro continued to slide against the Greenback on Thursday marred by unimpressive local numbers and mixed US data that was taken by investors in a positive light. German Ifo Business climate missed the mark slightly however the major move lower came after the US unemployment claims were released. 289,000 individuals were shown to be claiming unemployment down from 295,000 previously and a forecast of 297,000. Although the Philly Fed Manufacturing was weaker than expected the US Federal Reserve has been quite specific on the importance of the improvement on the labour market. This morning the EUR/USD cross opens lower at 1.2272 and with no US data being announced heading into the weekend the focus will turn to European numbers for direction.

Why is it that when I go into a currency vendor to send money I never get the rate on the news?

You may well think that you are being ripped off, but it is not always the case. In simple terms what you see on the news or in the paper or on yahoo finance is the Middle Rate or mid-rate. Some people want to buy a currency and some people want to sell a currency and there is a gap (or margin) between the price at which you buy and the price at which you sell. ⇒ read article
