Exchange Rate Lesson of the Week

GBP: Sterling get the wobbles

All up, Sterling has had a pretty poor week. In the last two days we’ve had inflation reported at its lowest level for 12 months and retail sales growth go negative for March.

It’s well and truly taken the wind out of Sterling’s sails. 

Perhaps the most important lesson from this week is that when exchange rates are favourable, it’s worth taking advantage of them. Trying to decide the exact moment to trade is fraught with psychological pitfalls. 

When Sterling’s rising it feels like it will keep going and going. Greed kicks in. We hold off to get a higher rate. But it’s impossible to pick the highs and lows. By the time we realise the high has come and gone, it’s too late.

Those that were able to trade at over 1.15 against the Euro and 1.42 against the Dollar will be feeling pretty good right now.

EUR: Surplus in the spotlight

Usually a large trading surplus would be seen as a good thing. But with President Trump looking to rebalance the scales, the EU is starting to stand out like a sore thumb. 

For that reason, the response to the EU’s latest surplus received a mixed response yesterday. 

Today German producer prices have come out first thing and have fallen short of expectations. This is further evidence that Europe’s powerhouse is losing steam. 

USD: Trump predicts good things

The US Dollar got a boost yesterday after President Trump eased fears of trade wars.

As always, Twitter was the source “Great meeting with Prime Minister Abe of Japan...Talked in depth about North Korea, Military and Trade. Good things will happen!”.

It was enough to overshadow the latest US jobs numbers, which came in below forecast.

Today investors will be looking for clues on interest rate policy in a speech by Federal Reserve member, Charles Evans.

Currency Exchange News 18.04.2018

GBP: Profit taking pause

Sterling took a dip yesterday after the latest wage data came in lower than expected, but at 2.8%, wage growth is now just above inflation. The implication is that low levels of unemployment (42-year low) is feeding through to real wage growth. 

The Bank of England (BoE) will be aware that it needs to tread a fine line. Parts of the UK economy (retail, construction, housing) are softening but inflationary pressures are building. It’s why markets are expecting the BoE to “gradually” keep raising rates. 

Today the all-important Consumer Price Index is released. Last month inflation came in lower than expected, which was Sterling negative. We’ll find out later whether it was a blip or not. 

EUR: Germany leads the way…down

The Euro steadied yesterday but it was due to falls in Sterling and the Dollar rather than anything positive for the Euro. 

There are growing concerns that the EU’s powerhouse Germany is undergoing a downturn. Both Bloomberg and The Telegraph have highlighted the recent “data slump”. 

On Tuesday, Germany’s ZEW Survey (a sentiment gauge) fell to 5-year lows. While it’s too early to talk about recession risks, it will cement the European Central Bank’s (ECB) cautious stance. 

Today we have the Eurozone consumer price index data for March. Any signs of weakness would see the Euro under more pressure. 

USD: Bounce off lows

The US Dollar got rewarded for strong data yesterday. Better than expected housing starts and capacity utilisation brought back buyers for the Dollar which had slumped to a three-week low against a currency basket at the start of the week.

President Trump stirred up both China and Russia on Monday accusing them of “playing the Currency Devaluation game”. This infers Trump is not pushing for a stronger Dollar. He knows a weak Dollar will help bring jobs back to the US, so those expecting a big Dollar rebound may be waiting a (long) while.

Sterling Strongest Quarterly Gains in almost 3 Three Years

GBP: Sterling leads the way

Sterling finished last week on a high - up against nearly all the majors. It ended at 10-week highs against the Dollar and 11-month highs against the Euro. 

It was the move against the Euro that really stood out as GBP finally broke out of the range it’s been stuck in since last May; having failed to break above 1.15 on three previous occasions. 

However, as we pointed out last week the timing is strange as the UK economy has hit a little bit of a soft patch. Could it be that Sterling’s rally is due to the repatriation of investor dividends – a longstanding seasonal pattern that happens every April – rather than a fundamental shift?

EUR: Out of step, out of puff

As we have noted above, the Euro finally lost the tug-o-war with Sterling which has been going on for months (felt like years). 

It hasn’t come as a complete surprise as the Euro has struggled to maintain last year’s upward momentum. 

The minutes from the European Central Bank (ECB) showed that EU policymakers are still a long way off considering the possibility of raising interest rates. With other central banks beginning to tighten, the Euro looks out of step. 

Strong economic data will only boost the Euro if investors believe it can change the stance of the ECB. 

Not a lot scheduled for today but German and Eurozone ZEW Surveys (measures economic sentiment) are both due out tomorrow. 

USD: Dollar steadies after Syria strikes

The dollar firmed up this morning following the military strikes on Syria over the weekend.

President Trump posted “Mission Accomplished” on Twitter which indicated that the conflict may be over (for now).

Friday’s University of Michigan sentiment index was lower than forecast, but investors still believe the Fed will not waiver and continue to increase US interest rates – unless of course there is an outbreak of military or trade warfare.
