Daily Currency Market Commentary
Daily currency news provided by OzForex

The U.S dollar continued its upward push Thursday touching one week highs when measured against a basket of major currency counterparts. Second quarter GDP data showed the world’s largest economy had recovered from a lethargic and sluggish start to the year expanding 2.3% in the 3 months since March 31st. While the print fell below analyst expectations the uptick and rapid recovery lends support to the Federal Reserve’s comments on Wednesday where in chairwoman Janet Yellen suggested the economy had “overcome a first quarter slowdown”. The Dollar index rallied while the Greenback touched 7 week highs against the Japanese Yen and the Euro feel to a one week low of 1.0893. The 19 nation shared currency came under increased selling pressure as Spanish inflation and economic growth remains sluggish and German unemployment unexpectedly rose, while the worlds lender of last resort (the IMF) reportedly refused to re-join debt burden talks with Greece until widespread reform measure are implemented. Attentions now turn to a US employment cost index report as a key indicator of labour market strength. A strong read would suggest bargaining power for workers and cement recent labour market gains leading a consumer driven inflationary push and fuelling expectations the Federal Reserve will increase the benchmark cash rate come September.

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
