United States Currency Evaluation

Fundamental

Classified as Improving, the fundamental’s of the US economy are generally strong. The focus area of the Federal Reserve is Prices and they are classified as Improving. The market has a 27.3% chance of a price hike in the December meeting.

Sentiment

Classified as Worsening, the sentiment is in need of a pickup, this is mostly to do with the threat of North Korea and also Hurricane damage.

fund

Trading

The current situation has provided a chance to buy dollars at a good price especially if the Core CPI can pick up next week. Currently this is classified as Worsening.

 


2017 September 5 Tuesday

United Kingdom Situation Report

Fundamental

Over the span of previous 12 months, the UK is worsening. The growth of the economy is of greatest concern.

My long term position is searching for opportunities to sell.

Sentiment

The BoE meet in just over a week and I expect concerns around growth to be raised again.

My medium term position is to hold until further changes as indifferent.

Important Economic Indicators

Bearish start, just PMI data early in the week but Growth indicator for Manufacturing later.

My short term position is to look for opportunities to sell.

 

Euro Area Situation Report

Fundamental

Over the span of previous 12 months, in general the Euro Area is improving. The Central Bank’s ambiguity around Quantitative Easing is all that is holding this back from more strength.

My long term position is searching for opportunities to buy.

Sentiment

The ECB meet this week and I will be listening for information on QE and Inflation, both of which are areas of interest. QE tapering is of most importance.

My medium term position is to hold until further changes as indifferent.

Important Economic Indicators

The important economic indicators for the week 36 are non-existent. Attention is being aid to the GDP and ECB meeting.

My short term position is to hold until further changes as indifferent.

2017 September 4 Monday

United States Situation Report

Fundamental

Over the span of previous 12 months, it is considered that all area’s of the US economy are improving apart from the Balance of Trade which is worsening. This puts the US in the strongest position.

My long term position is searching for opportunities to buy.

Sentiment

Just over 2 weeks until the next Federal Reserve meeting and the focus area is inflation. There has been little pickup on the reports and until CPI moves away from a bearish position I don’t see any chance of a rate hike.

My medium term position is searching for opportunities to sell.

Economic Indicators

The economic indicators for the week 36 are indifferent although data is thin.

My short term position is searching for opportunities to sell.

The USD is expected to be weak on Monday so looking to sell against anything that is stronger.

The sentiment is Bearish while the inflation underperforms, looking to sell against stronger sentiments. No change on this until next week when some inflation reports are out.

 


2017 August 30 Wednesday

Outlook: There are three reports of interest out tomorrow, Business Outlook Survey for NZD and for the USD, Chicago Purchasing Managers Index and Pending Home Sales. These are all leading indicators but none have an expectation that favours an order entry.

 

North American Session: Following reports of a missile from North Korea passing over Japanese airspace I was able to secure some good pips on safe haven trading.

Later this afternoon there is US Consumer Confidence data released. It is expected to be Indifferent but if Bearish then buy Yen and sell Yen if Bullish.


2017 August 25 Friday

European Session: German Ifo Business Climate report was on the border of being Bullish although by metrics was Indifferent. I have placed an order to Buy EURUSD from the lows anyway.

In the US Session, if the Durable Goods Orders are Bullish then I will be placing a buy on USDJPY from the 5 minute lows.


2017 August 24 Thursday

During tomorrow’s European session I will be watching for German Ifo Business Climate report. This is expected to be Indifferent but a Bullish report will warrant going long on the EURUSD from the 30 minute lows.

2017 August 21 Monday

A quiet start to the week, bought some EUR for CAD and it worked out just before the CAD price jumped on the back of Oil geopolitical news.
No data in the asian session although plenty going off in European and North American sessions.
