Euro USD Currency Market Report Exchange Released

AlphaBetaStock.com, a daily news website, is releasing a its daily currency market report that shows trends and opportunities in the currency markets.

West Palm Beach, United States - August 24, 2019 /PressCable/ —

AlphaBetaStock.com daily market news report is looking at significant moves in the currency markets. This is cause primary by challenging geo-policital events. Traders should look at support and resitence levels for larger trend movements.

United States of America

USD is strengthening against its main competitors – EUR, JPY, and GBP.

Investors are focused on the Fed Chairman Jerome Powell’s speech at the Jackson Hole Symposium, which is scheduled for 16:00 (GMT+2). The market expects Powell to clarify further actions of the regulator, which so far remain uncertain. At the July meeting, FOMC members decreased the interest rate to 2.25%, and investors hoped that monetary easing would continue but Powell called it corrective and not indicative of a change in course. Most likely, speaking at Jackson Hole, the head of the Fed will be careful and confirm that the regulator will make further decisions based on information coming from the market. A number of FOMC members consider the latest rate cut erroneous. The president of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City, Esther George, said that with a low level of unemployment, rising wages and inflation close to the target level, a rate change was not required.

Eurozone

EUR today is weakening against USD and JPY but moves horizontally against GBP.

Due to a lack of significant economic releases, EUR movement is generally technical in nature. Investors are waiting for Fed Chairman Jerome Powell to speak at the Jackson Hole Symposium and a hint of further action by the US regulator. The market also monitors the development of the political crisis in Italy. After the collapse of the current coalition government and the resignation of Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte, President Sergio Mattarella is actually leading the country and consulting on the creation of a new coalition. It is likely that the new government will form the movement “Five Stars and the Democratic Party of Italy.” In this case, early elections will not be needed, and Euroskeptic Matteo Salvini’s Lega movement will not be in power.

United Kingdom

GBP is weakening against USD and JPY but moves horizontally against EUR.

Due to a lack of significant British economic releases, GBP movement is technical in nature. The results of the visit of British Prime Minister Boris Johnson to Berlin and Paris were ambiguous. On the one hand, EU leaders left London a chance to conclude a deal and cancel the backstop provision. However, to do this, the United Kingdom must provide alternative options for solving the problem of the Irish border, which the British government so far probably lacks. In addition, a trade deal between the United States and the United Kingdom, which the parties intended to conclude after the country’s exit from the EU, was threatened during the week. Senate Congressman Democrat Chuck Schumer promised to oppose any trade deal with Britain if the tough border divides Ireland again.

Japan

JPY is strengthening against EUR and GBP but weakening against USD.

Japanese investors are focusing on July inflation data in Japan. Core CPI expectedly remained at the previous value of 0.6%, while the general consumer price index slowed down its growth from 0.7% to 0.5%. The rising of electricity and gas prices were offset by a fall in prices for petroleum products and gasoline. However, government officials note that consumer prices still have a moderate upward trend. Inflation is still far from the target level, which puts pressure on the Bank of Japan and may cause the introduction of additional incentives for the Japanese economy.

Australia

AUD is weakening against JPY and USD but moves horizontally against EUR and GBP.

AUD is under pressure of the exacerbation of the US-China trade conflict. Today, the PRC authorities said they would introduce new tariffs ranging from 5% to 10% for US goods worth $75 billion. In addition, the export of American cars will be taxed at 25% duty. Tariffs will be introduced in two parts: from September 1 and from December 15.

Oil

Today, oil prices are being corrected downwards.

Quotes are under pressure after reports of a decision by the PRC State Council Commission on Customs Tariffs to impose increased duties on US goods totaling $75 billion, including for cars and parts for them. Such a decision by China indicates an aggravation of the conflict with the United States and an increasing threat to the global demand for energy.

In the evening, the publication of the Baker Hughes report on active oil platforms in the United States of America is expected. The last time their number increased from 764 to 770 units. Continuation of this trend may put pressure on oil quotes.

Tour company Thomas Cook collapses, global bookings canceled

Sep 23, 2019

LONDON — Longtime British tour company Thomas Cook collapsed after failing to secure rescue funding, and travel bookings for its more than 600,000 global vacationers were canceled early Monday. The British government said the return of the firm's 150,000 British customers now abroad would be the largest repatriation in its peacetime history.

The company several months ago...

LONDON — More than 600,000 vacationers who booked through tour operator Thomas Cook were on edge Sunday, wondering if they will be able to get home, as one of the world's oldest and biggest travel companies teetered on the edge of collapse.

Auto union strike is latest worry in Flint, GM's birthplace

Sep 23, 2019

FLINT, Mich. — The birthplace of General Motors has been on an economic roller-coaster ride for more than a century as the automaker rose, crashed and retooled for changing markets. Now, the city of Flint is again steeling for economic impact amid a nationwide United Auto Workers' strike against the automaker. Workers seeking job security and a bigger share of GM's profits have been surrounding the company's massive complex in Flint for days, marching and toting signs and U.S. flags at entrances. "Vehicle City" — and many of the workers — have been here before. James Schneider, who operates a...

House votes to end forced arbitration in business disputes

Sep 23, 2019

WASHINGTON — The House approved a bill Friday to end forced arbitration clauses that prevent workers and consumers from filing lawsuits in disputes with companies over employment practices, billing or civil rights. Supporters, mostly Democrats, said the bill would restore access to justice for millions of Americans who are now locked out of the court system and forced to settle disputes against companies in a private arbitration system that often favors the company over the individual. Opponents, mostly Republicans, said the measure would make it harder for individual workers or consumers by forcing them into lengthy, expensive court fights that...
