Latest Currency and Forex News
    Euro Rate Still Under The ‘Greek’ Influence
    The Pound remained at elevated levels against most of the majors yesterday as Tuesday’s sturdy second quarter UK GDP report continued to bolster demand. Sterling also garnered support following the release of mortgage data yesterday showing that loans for house purchases increased by the most in almost seven years in June. The 66,582 surge in mortgage approvals reflects renewed confidence in the housing market following the Conservative’s election victory in May, which prevented Labour laying out new measures to tax big spend house purchases. Other than the GfK consumer confidence ...
    Leaked Greece Exit Plans Lead To Euro Rate Movement
    The Pound got off to a slow start against the majors yesterday but demand grew during the afternoon ahead of this morning’s UK GDP report. The data due for release from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) is tipped to show an encouraging acceleration of economic activity in the second quarter. British GDP printed at 0.4% in Q1 but markets anticipate a much better score of 0.7% for Q2. The report is likely to have a significant impact on sentiment towards Sterling this week as a soft figure could potentially ...
    GBP Seems Range Bound Until BoE Minutes
    It was a fairly inconsequential day on the currency markets yesterday as traders received practically no new economic data to get their teeth stuck into. The only British release saw Rightmove’s house price index rise from 4.5% to 5.1%. Needless to say, but it traders were not rushing to their desks to readjust their Bank of England rate hike bets following the announcement. There is little to look out for today either, although this morning’s UK public sector net borrowing figures could tip the Pound in the right direction if the ...
    GBP Awaiting UK Unemployment Rate
    This morning’s UK consumer price index is expected to show that price pressures slowed from 0.1% to 0.0% last month. If the data prints inline with economists’ forecasts then we could see Sterling tumble against some of the majors as Bank of England rate hike projections are adjusted. However, the impact of the timid CPI score could be reduced because tomorrow’s UK labour market report is projected to show robust growth in average wages. The unemployment rate is likely to remain at a seven-year low of 5.5% but weekly earnings ...
    Greece Non Payment Sees Euro Decline
    Sentiment towards GBP improved yesterday thanks to a better-than-anticipated upward revision to the UK’s first quarter growth figures. The quarterly score was upgraded from 0.3% to 0.4% and this drove the annualised figure up from 2.5% to 2.9%. It was also reported that the British economy expanded by 3.0% in 2014, which was the fastest rate of growth since 2006. Although the Q1 figures still point to growth around half as fast as in the second half of 2014, analysts are optimistic that the economy will pick up the pace as ...
