    Forex Major Currencies Outlook (Sept 16, 2015)

    USD

    The US dollar gave up ground to some of its rivals because of weaker than expected retail sales figures.

    Headline retail sales increased by only 0.2% instead of the estimated 0.3% rise while the core version of the report printed a meager 0.1% uptick versus the projected 0.2% gain. CPI readings are lined up for today, with the headline figure slated to show a flat reading and the core figure likely to print a 0.1% increase. Another round of weak figures could spur more losses for the dollar while strong data could set off a rebound.

    EUR

    The euro struggled to stay afloat after data from the euro zone came up short of expectations. The German ZEW economic sentiment index slipped from 25.0 to 12.1, worse than the projected drop to 18.5. The region's ZEW index tumbled from 47.6 to 33.3, lower than the projected 42.1 figure. Final CPI readings are due from the euro zone today and no changes to the initially estimated 0.2% headline figure and 1.0% core figure are expected.

    GBP


    The pound gave up ground when UK inflation reports reflected a slight downturn in price levels as expected. The headline CPI fell from 0.1% to 0.0% in August while the core CPI dipped from 1.2% to 1.0%, taking the recent declines in commodity prices into account. Jobs data is due from the UK today and the economy probably added 5.1K positions for August, enough to keep the jobless rate unchanged at 5.6%.

    CHF

    The franc resumed its selloff to the dollar, following weaker than expected reports from the euro zone. There have been no figures out of Switzerland yesterday, although the economy printed dismal PPI and retail sales reports the other day. For today, the Swiss ZEW economic expectations index is up for release and a drop from the earlier 5.9 reading could spur more franc losses.

    JPY


    The yen regained some ground after the BOJ statement, which reflected no change in monetary policy as expected. Japanese policymakers downgraded forecasts for exports and output, accounting for the downturn in demand from its trade partners. One board member voted to taper asset purchases and adopt a more flexible inflation-targeting scheme but he was outvoted by majority of the policymakers.

    Commodity Currencies (AUD, NZD, CAD)

    Comdolls were able to stay afloat and advance against the US dollar in recent trading. Data from New Zealand was better than expected, with the dairy auction yielding a 16.5% gain in prices and the current account balance showing a slightly smaller deficit than expected. Canadian manufacturing sales and foreign securities purchases data are lined up for today then New Zealand has its Q2 GDP on tap for the next Asian trading session.

    Forex Major Currencies Outlook (Sept 17, 2015)

    USD

    The US dollar tossed and turned during the recent NY trading session, as traders treated the Greenback as a counter currency for their trades instead of picking a clear direction.
    Traders are also probably reducing their dollar holdings ahead of today's FOMC statement. The Fed is widely expected to keep interest rates unchanged, possibly citing the slowdown in China and the tumble in commodities as enough reason to stand pat. Also lined up are the Fed's revised economic projections, which might provide better clues on when the liftoff might take place.

    EUR

    The euro resumed its slide after the region reported downgrades in its CPI readings for August. The headline CPI was revised from 0.2% to 0.1% while the core CPI was downgraded from 1.0% to 0.9%. There are no major reports due from the euro zone today, but the overall mood seems bearish since the inflation reports reminded traders that the ECB is open to further easing if necessary.

    GBP

    The pound had a volatile reaction to the UK jobs data but managed to stay in the lead at the end of the day. The economy lost 1.2K jobs in August versus expectations of a 5.1K increase but the unemployment rate still improved from 5.6% to 5.5%. In addition, wage growth picked up from 2.3% to 2.9% in the three months ending in July, hinting at stronger consumer spending down the line. For today, the August UK retail sales report is due and a 0.2% uptick is eyed.

    CHF

    The franc erased some of its recent wins despite the improvement in the Swiss ZEW economic expectations index from 5.9 to 9.7. Traders probably reduced their franc holdings ahead of today's SNB statement, as this central bank is known for jawboning their currency or even intervening in the forex market. Keep in mind that the SNB might be a little more dovish this time since the ECB has already expressed its willingness to ease again.

    JPY

    The yen lost ground to most of its forex rivals even though Japan didn't release any reports yesterday. Risk appetite seemed to improve during the Asian trading session, but it remains to be seen whether the yen pairs' gains can be sustained during the FOMC statement. USDJPY moves often spill over to other yen pairs during this event, as any reduction of dollar holdings could mean more demand for other low-yielding currencies like the yen.

    Commodity Currencies (AUD, NZD, CAD)

    The comdolls managed to score some gains due to the reduction in oil inventories and the pickup in prices. New Zealand printed a weaker than expected GDP of 0.4% for Q2, but this was still better than the previous 0.2% expansion. There are no major reports due from these comdoll economies today, leaving commodity currencies to take their cue from oil and gold prices during the FOMC decision.

    USD

    The US dollar suffered a sharp selloff after the FOMC statement since the Fed refrained from hiking interest rates. There was only one member who called for a rate hike but he was outvoted by the rest of the committee who pointed out the risks stemming from China. Fed officials upgraded their growth forecast for 2015 but downgraded their estimates for the next two years. Despite that, 13 out of 17 central bankers still believe that a liftoff is possible before the end of the year.

    EUR

    The euro was able to take advantage of dollar weakness and surge past its other forex counterparts yesterday. There have been no reports out of the region yesterday while today has only the current account balance on tap. The surplus is expected to narrow from 25.4 billion EUR to 21.3 billion EUR.

    GBP

    The pound managed to advance against most of its forex rivals, despite weaker than expected UK retail sales data. Consumer spending ticked up by only 0.2% in August as expected but the previous report was downgraded to show a flat reading. There are no reports due from the UK today but BOE member Haldane is scheduled to give a speech.

    CHF

    The SNB decided to keep monetary policy unchanged as expected while jawboning their currency in saying that they're open to intervening in the forex market if necessary. SNB officials sounded more dovish than usual, especially since the ECB has also expressed openness to further easing. There are no reports lined up from the Swiss economy today.

    JPY

    The yen took advantage of dollar weakness but was unable to score wins against the rest of its forex peers. Japan's trade balance showed a smaller deficit of 0.36 trillion JPY from the earlier 0.38 trillion JPY, but the components of the report revealed a decline in both imports and exports, which reflects a downturn in local and international demand. The BOJ meeting minutes are due today.

    Commodity Currencies (AUD, NZD, CAD)

    The comdolls were barely able to sustain their gains against the dollar, as risk aversion seemed to weigh on these higher-yielders. There have been no reports out of the comdoll economies yesterday while today has Canada's CPI reports on tap. The headline CPI could show a flat reading while the core CPI is slated to post a 0.2% uptick.

    Forex Major Currencies Outlook (Nov 10, 2015)

    USD

    The US dollar had a pretty quiet trading day, as traders calmed down from the NFP volatility. The currency managed to hold on to its lead against the euro and comdolls but weakened to the yen and pound. There were no major reports out of the US yesterday, although the medium-tier labor conditions index climbed from 1.3 to 1.6 in October.

    EUR


    The euro was still in a weak spot against its peers, as the German trade balance missed expectations. The Sentix investor confidence index posted a better than expected reading of 15.1 versus the projected 12.4 figure, up from the previous 11.7 reading. French and Italian industrial production numbers are up for release today.

    GBP

    The pound was one of the best performers yesterday, even though there were no reports out of the UK. Traders may have been pricing in positive expectations for the upcoming jobs release, with the claimant count change likely to print a mere 1.6K rise in joblessness. For today, there are still no reports due from the UK.

    CHF

    The franc followed in the euro's footsteps and weakened to most of its peers, although it managed to recoup its gains when risk aversion extended its stay. There were no reports out of Switzerland yesterday while today has the unemployment rate on tap.



    The yen took advantage of the run in risk aversion, but it had trouble holding on to its lead since data from Japan has been mostly weak. The current account surplus shrank from 1.59T JPY to 0.78T JPY, worse than the projected drop to 1.50T JPY
    .
    Commodity Currencies (AUD, NZD, CAD)

    The comdolls started off on a weak foot, as the Chinese trade numbers still weighed on sentiment. In Australia, job advertisements picked up by 0.4% compared to the earlier 3.8% jump while Canada reported a 198K increase in housing starts. Earlier today, Australia printed its NAB business confidence index, which dipped from 5 to 2. Chinese CPI came in below expectations at 1.3% versus 1.5% while the PPI showed a 5.9% drop as expected.
