Valutrades Market Blast Fundamentals 2 December 2019


Welcome to this week’s Market Blast Fundamentals where we will look at EURGBP, USDCAD, AUDUSD, USDJPY and USDCHF.

2 December 2019 Fundamentals

The US Majors are all showing USD strength especially the safe havens like USDJPY and USDCHF as the market does not see any more US Interest rate cuts in the near future.

But watch for US economic news this week with PMIs today and Wednesday, ADP Employment data also on Wednesday and the Non-Farm Payrolls on Friday.

Also, watch for volatility this week from Australia with an Interest Rate decision tomorrow, GDP on Wednesday, and Retail Sales figures Thursday.

We see AUD weakness in general and this is not likely to change unless we get better news on the US/China trade talks which will also affect the Canadian Dollar where we also see general weakness.

We have a Canadian Interest Rate decision Wednesday, a PMI Thursday and Employment data Friday.

And, of course, the Pound will be affected by political polls up until the election next week and it is clearly getting stronger against the EUR where we have Employment numbers, Retail Sales figures and GDP Thursday.

That’s all for now. Happy trading with Valutrades and we will see you tomorrow.
