Daily Currency Market Commentary
Daily currency news provided by OzForex

In a return to macroeconomic news the Greenback edged lower overnight as Employment data and Jobs growth failed to meet market expectations. June’s non-farm payroll report showed just 223,000 new jobs were added to the economy while the Labor Department revised down April and May’s prints by 60,000. Further compounding the sour outlook the labour force participation rate fell to its lowest level in 38 years as 430,000 employees dropped out of the labour pool. The step decline in labour force membership cancelled out a drop in overall unemployment extending the timeline of expectation for a Federal Reserve rate hike. Analysts now anticipate record low interest rates will remain unchanged through September with just 50% calling for a rate adjustment prior to Christmas. The euro edged higher on the back of US data weakness touching overnight highs of 1.1118 before investor’s squared positions leading into the Independence Day long weekend and Greek Referendum. Tsipras and Varoufakis found unlikely support from the IMF throughout Thursday as the global economies lender of last resort submitted an assessment suggesting Greece will require extensive monetary support and extended periods of debt relief if the economy is to rebuild and reduce its debt to GDP ratio. The relationship between Greece and its Creditors already stood on shaky ground but now it appears crack are forming amongst the Troika of lenders further muddying the waters and highlighting the problems ahead regardless of the result on Sunday. Attentions through Friday will be all but consumed by the ongoing credit crisis with significant market volatility expected on Monday.

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
