Daily Currency Market Commentary
Daily currency news provided by OzForex

A US labour market department report overnight showed that the number of American’s filling for unemployment benefits plummeted to the lowest level in 15 years whilst another report indicated labour costs had advanced by 0.7 percent last quarter, a positive result for broader inflation. Following a weak economic performance during quarter one which only delivered a GDP expansion of 0.3 percent, last night’s positive batch of data has been well received by market participants. Having sunk to a nine-week low earlier in the session the US dollar whilst marginally stronger this morning still appears truly hamstrung by the shift in expectations which now sees the US Federal Reserve holding rates until at least the final quarter of this year. In other developments the 18-nation euro has managed to reach a nine-week high against the dollar (1.1266), buoyed by broader Greenback weakness. On the outlook today manufacturing data from the US and the UK remain the pick of the highlights this evening.

USDCAD Overnight Range 1.2223-1.2323 The US dollar is Mr. Toad and it has been on a wild ride this morning. Another bout of weak US economic data (Jobless Claims rose, Housing Starts and Building Permits fell) revered hard won US dollar gains in Europe. USDCAD which had scraped back above 1.2310 prior to the data… Continue reading

The Loonie soared following the Bank of Canada slight shift to a more neutral stance supported by tweak of the language around inflation. It’s now “roughly balanced” rather than “more balanced” which in my opinion does not justify a 0.0125 point drop in USDCAD (From 1.2550 to 1.2425). That move was more a factor of… 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
