By: XE Market Analysis

The dollar was mixed in N.Y. trade, thought with London on holiday, activity was somewhat muted on Easter Monday. EUR-USD reclaimed the 1.10 handle in morning dealings, though while it moved above Friday's peak, it was unable to test the March highs of 1.1040-50. Read more

XE Market Analysis: North America - Apr 06, 2015

FX trade was light overnight, as most of Europe continued their Easter holidays. EUR-USD is off Friday's post-jobs high, back under 1.1000, as USD-JPY continues to trade either side of 119.00. Wall Street will reopen this morning, and will catch up with Friday's futures, which indicate a sharp opening sell off. Read more

US Equity Market Review For the Week of March 30 - April 3; Economic News Weighing Negatively, Edition

By: HaleStewart

The post-Lehman US economy has been quite adept at surprising and confounding analysts. For the last five years, Federal Reserve staff have continually made rosy projections, only to repeatedly revise them lower. They are not alone; private economists have also been caught analytically flat-footed on several occasions. Read more

Weekly Indicators: production, rail transport, and spending still poor edition

By: New_Deal_democrat

Monthly reports for March started out with a poor jobs report, with almost all internals, and revisions, down. On the other hand, March auto sales were at near post-recession highs. ISM manufacturing was less positive than previously. February reports included personal income and spending, both up, but spending less than income, pending home sales up sharply, factory orders up, but with a big downward revision to January, and construction spending down slightly. My usual note: I look at the high frequency weekly indicators because while they can be very noisy, they provide an up-to-this-week snapshot of the economy. Read more

The dollar was mostly lower in N.Y. trade on Thursday, despite better initial jobless claims, a much narrower trade deficit, and improved factory orders. Pre-Easter weekend book adjusting was ultimately the main driver, which resulted in European accounts being buyers of EUR-USD and cable. Read more

XE Market Analysis: North America - Apr 02, 2015

By: XE Market Analysis

EUR-USD has rallied above 1.0800 to a peak of 1.0844, pressing against Tuesday's high at 1.0845 before settling around 1.0825-30. Stops were a factor as the market positions for tomorrow's U.S. jobs report, especially with European markets being closed for the Good Friday holiday and with the speculative market running an extreme net short exposure to the euro.

XE Market Analysis: Europe - Apr 02, 2015

By: XE Market Analysis

EUR-USD held in the mid-to-upper 1.07s during pre-Europe trade in Asia. Intensifying Grexit concerns aside, which is a wildcard for the euro, we favour the upside over the nearer term as weaker than expected ISM, ADP, and construction data out of the U.S. Read more

XE Market Analysis: Asia - Apr 01, 2015

By: XE Market Analysis

The dollar tilted lower in N.Y. on Wednesday, as data misses weighed on the dollar, yields, and Wall Street. The ADP employment survey was light of expectations, as was the March manufacturing ISM, and construction spending. EUR-USD opened near 1.0840, and made its way to session highs of 1.0795 into the London close. Read more
