Forex Market Update
This morning, the greenback is trading higher against most of the major currencies.
The Euro came under pressure, after data released this morning indicated that French consumer confidence fell to its lowest level in nearly five years in May. Yesterday, the Standard and Poor’s rating agency warned that France must deliver its promised budget cuts to avoid a credit rating downgrade. Meanwhile, import prices in Germany dropped more-than-expected in the month of April.
The Yen is trading lower against the dollar, after the advisor to the Japanese Prime Minister, Shinzo Abe, Koichi Hamada stated that the Bank of Japan would provide further stimulus, if necessary, to drive an economic revival.
The Swiss Franc is trading lower against the USD and the EUR, after data revealed that trade surplus in Switzerland unexpectedly narrowed for April, largely affected by a steep fall in exports due to sluggish demand in Europe, the nation’s biggest trading partner.
The US consumer confidence and Richmond Fed manufacturing index which are scheduled for release later in the day are expected to trigger much of the action in the forex market.
