Thursday, 05 March 2015 - Market Commentary
Daily currency news provided by UkForex

: GBP/USD fell yesterday following the release of weaker than expected UK Services PMI. The index for February printed at 56.7 vs. forecasts for 57.6, and although the headline was weaker, the number was still relatively strong so it was perhaps an ominous sign for the pound that it fell on the news. As the day went on, the US dollar continued to strengthen, prompted in part by the sell-off in EUR/USD, seeing GBP/USD fall to a low of 1.5226 overnight. US ISM Non-Manufacturing data released yesterday printed stronger than market expectations at 56.9 vs. 56.5 which supported the move, although the slightly weaker ADP Non-Farm employment number was shrugged off. GBP/USD opens this morning at 1.5250 ahead of the Bank of England monetary policy announcement. No change in policy is expected, either to rates or QE. Most of the market’s focus will be on the ECB monetary policy decision and accompanying statement today, with particular attention given to Draghi’s accompanying statement given that the central bank are expected to leave rates and QE unchanged.
We expect a range today in the GBP/USD rate of 1.5180 to 1.5300

: EUR/USD fell to an eleven year low yesterday as various stops in the pair were triggered. It was also in reaction to weaker than expected European PMIs; German, Eurozone, Italian and Spanish Services PMIs all printed weaker than expected whilst French Services PMI printed in line with market forecasts. There is also a bit of nervousness ahead of today’s central bank announcement and accompanying press conference. As mentioned above, no change in rates or QE is expected but there’s a good chance that Draghi will sound as dovish as he ever has in his statement and Q&A session. That said, rumours and facts often diverge, which could mean there’s a bit of an upside risk in EUR/USD post press conference. In the meantime, the euro is weak right across the board and GBP/EUR is up over 1.38 currently – we will see if this lasts come ECB press conference time.
We expect a range today in the GBP/EUR rate of 1.3760 to 1.3860

: AUD/USD bounced to .7855 yesterday afternoon but then fell back towards the .78 figure overnight as RBA Deputy Governor Lowe spoke. His comments didn’t come as too much of a surprise as he referred to the aussie dollar being too high. He said: “with our exchange rate higher than it otherwise would have been, domestic demand has been a bit weaker.” He also left the door open to further cuts in interest rates. NZD/USD is being sold more heavily this morning, dragged lower in part by the decline in the aussie dollar, but also the broad strength of the USD. It trades at .7525 currently.
We expect a range today in the GBP/AUD rate of 1.9400 to 1.9580
We expect a range today in the GBP/NZD rate of 2.0180 to 2.0380

The Greenback touched fresh highs when measured against a basket of currencies Wednesday as the dollar index reached levels not seen since September 2003. The USD found support in a strong ADP non-farm employment report leading analysts to believe another NFP print above 200K will be seen Friday. A strong Labour market is crucial for US dollar strength after a string of softer than anticipated macroeconomic indicators throughout February cooled expectations surrounding US growth prospects. A print below 235K in the monthly Non-Farm Payroll report may dampen the Greenback rally as investors are forced to reassess their IR expectations and extend assumptions on the timing of a Central Bank rate adjustment.
In other news the Euro edged lower breaking key technical support levels at 1.11 and opens this morning at 1.1071. Investors looked to shorten positions and reduce their holdings of the 19 nation shared unit in the lead up to the ECB‘s monthly press conference. The European Central Bank is set to announce specific plans for its 1.1 trillion Euro bond buying program an announcement that highlights the dividing and diverging gulf between the US Federal reserve and its European counterparts.
Attentions today will be squarely focused on the ECB as the headline event governing direction through trade on Thursday.

Oz to me seems like a no-brainer. The Aussie dollar has been beaten down over a commodity slump and a rate decrease by the Reserve Bank of Australia in the face of the ECB’s quantitative easing program. But the real clincher has been the price action over the last few weeks. If you google Aussie… Continue reading

The Swiss National Bank gave us volatility on a historic scale last week as it rocked markets by abandoning the nearly three-year-old policy of supporting the value of the Swiss franc relative to the euro at 1.20. The Swiss franc consequently appreciated sharply across the board, distorting flows and liquidity market-wide. While this took the… Continue reading

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
