NFP: Coronavirus showed up earlier than expected – RBC

FXStreet reports that according to Nathan Janzen, a Senior Economist at the Royal Bank of Canada (RBC), the beginning of US layoffs tied to the coronavirus showed up earlier than expected, but the drop in March is still far from an accurate picture of labour markets today.

“The 701K employment decline in March was already the largest since the financial crisis. The unemployment rate spiked by almost a full percentage point to 4.4% and broader measures of labour market under-utilization jumped more than that.”

“The April jobs decline will almost certainly be the biggest in recorded history, and measured in the millions rather than thousands. The April unemployment rate could well jump to 15% or more.”

“The reality is that activity is not going to bounce-back overnight, and some businesses will be forced to permanently shut their doors. The longer the current disruptions last, the longer the recovery on the back-end is likely to take.”

NFP: The USD is still the best of a bad lot – TDS

FXStreet reports that in the opinion of economists at TD Securities, nonfarm payrolls much weaker than expected, but still not nearly as weak as seems likely for the April report in early May.

“Payrolls were -701K in March, much weaker than the -100k consensus; the TD Securities forecast was -200k. The unemployment rate jumped to 4.4% from 3.5%, well above the 3.8% consensus.”

“The foreign exchange market is fairly well-kept following this awful number. Unfortunately, the jobs data will only get materially worse for April.”

“Once the dust settles and the recessionary mindset is now afoot, the USD is still the best of a bad lot. We struggle to think that any of the majors poses a threat to the depth and liquidity of the world's reserve currency.”

U.S. non-manufacturing sector’s growth decelerates in March - ISM

The Institute for Supply Management (ISM) reported on Friday its non-manufacturing index (NMI) came in at 52.5 in March, which was 4.8 percentage points lower than the February reading of 57.3 percent. The March reading pointed to the slowest expansion in the services sector since August 2016.

Economists forecast the index to decrease to 44.0 last month. A reading above 50 signals expansion, while a reading below 50 indicates contraction.

Of the 18 manufacturing industries, 9 reported growth last month, the ISM said, adding that the respondents were concerned about the coronavirus impact on the supply chain, operational capacity, human resources and finances, as well as the ramifications for the overall economy.

According to the report, the ISM's non-manufacturing business activity measure fell to 48 percent, 9.8 percentage points lower than the February reading of 57.8 percent. That reflected contraction for the first time since July 2009. The new orders gauge came in at 52.9 percent, 10.2 percentage points below the reading of 63.1 percent in February. The Employment Index fell by 8.6 percentage points to 47 percent from the February reading of 55.6 percent. The Prices Index of 50 percent was 0.8 percentage point lower than the February reading of 50.8 percent, indicating that prices were unchanged in March. Meanwhile, the Supplier Deliveries Index registered 62.1 percent, up 9.7 percentage points from the February reading of 52.4 percent, and limited the drop in the composite NMI.

Commenting on the data, the Chair of the ISM Non-Manufacturing Business Survey Committee, Anthony Nieves, noted, "The past relationship between the NMI and the overall economy indicates that the NMI for March (52.5 percent) corresponds to a 1.4-percent increase in real gross domestic product (GDP) on an annualized basis."

U.S. services sector activity declines less than initially estimated in March - IHS Markit

The latest report by IHS Markit revealed on Friday the seasonally adjusted final IHS Markit U.S. Services Business Activity Index (PMI) stood at 39.8 in March, sharply down from 49.4 in February but up from the earlier released "flash" figure of 39.1. Nonetheless, the latest reading pointed to the quickest decline in output since data collection began in October 2009.

The reading signaled the fastest business activity expansion across the U.S. service sector since April.

Economists had forecast the index to stay unrevised at 39.1.

According to the report, business activity fell markedly following a steep drop in new orders, largely stemming from the outbreak of COVID-19. New orders received by service providers fell at the sharpest rate since the survey began, as customer and business closures led to client cancellations. The pace of job shedding was the joint-fastest since December 2009, as firms stated that lower new business inflows resulted in redundancies and enforced hiring freezes.

U.S. nonfarm payrolls decrease much more than expected in March

The U.S. Labor Department announced on Friday that nonfarm payrolls decreased by 701,000 in March after an upwardly revised 275,000 gain in the prior month (originally an increase of 273,000). That was the first decline in payrolls since September 2010 and reflected the effects of the coronavirus and efforts to contain it.

According to the report, significant job drops in March occurred in leisure and hospitality (-459,000 jobs, mainly in food services and drinking places), health care and social assistance (-61,000), professional and business services (-52,000), retail trade (-46,000), and construction (-29,000).

The unemployment rate climbed to 4.4 percent in March from 3.5 percent in February. That was the highest level since August 2017.

Economists had forecast the nonfarm payrolls to decrease by 100,000 and the jobless rate to rise to 3.8 percent.

The labor force participation rate decreased by 0.7 percentage point to 62.7 percent in March, while hourly earnings for private-sector workers rose 0.4 percent m-o-m (+11 cents) to $28.62, following an unrevised 0.3 percent m-o-m gain in February. Economists had forecast a 0.2 percent m-o-m advance in the average hourly earnings. Over the year, average hourly earnings have increased by 3.1 percent, following an unrevised 3.0 percent rise in February.

The average workweek decreased by 0.2 hour to 34.2 hours in March, exceeding economists' forecast for 34.1 hours.

Eurozone: Mechanisms to prevent a continuation of the corona crisis – Natixis

FXStreet reports that according to economists at Natixis, the economic policy conducted in response to the coronavirus crisis should prevent the same mechanisms as those seen after the 2008-2009 crisis in the eurozone. 

“The ECB need to monetise fiscal deficits, to prevent the rise in public debt from worsening the countries’ fiscal solvency; if the ECB buys government bonds and keeps them irreversibly on its balance sheet, these bonds held by the ECB no longer have any effect on the countries’ fiscal solvency.”

“There is a need to prevent corporate bankruptcies (to prevent a banking crisis and capital destruction), hence the importance of measures to support companies decided by all countries in 2020.

“The necessity to prevent the rise in corporate debt from leading to a decline in corporate investment after the coronavirus crisis, hence the importance of trying to strengthen companies’ equity capital and implementing investment support measures.”

European session review: GBP weakens against most major counterparts after gloomy UK’s PMI data

Time Country Event Period Previous value Forecast Actual
07:50 France Services PMI March 52.5 29.0 27.4
07:55 Germany Services PMI March 52.5 34.3 31.7
08:00 Eurozone Services PMI March 52.6 28.4 26.4

09:00 Eurozone Retail Sales (MoM) February 0.7% 0.1% 0.9%

GBP depreciated against most other major currencies in the European session on Friday, weighed down by UK's March PMI data. The sterling weakened against USD, EUR, JPY, CHF and CAD, but it rose against AUD and NZD.

The report from IHS Markit and Chartered Institute of Procurement & Supply (CIPS) showed on Friday that the final UK Composite Output Index, covering the country's manufacturing and service sectors, dropped sharply from 53.0 in February to 36.0 in March, the lowest level since this series began in January 1998. The latest figure was below the earlier "flash" reading of 37.1 in March and also pointed to a slightly quicker decrease in the UK's private sector output than that recorded at the height of the global financial crisis (index at 38.1 in November 2008). According to the report, the slump in overall business activity was driven by a record fall in service sector activity, alongside the fastest drop in manufacturing production since July 2012.

The UK's March PMI data added to the increasingly grim economic statistics reported recently across the developed world as the countries' measures to fight the COVID-19 pandemic hurt business operations and trigger job losses.

Equity Markets: Another leg lower is coming – Nordea

FXStreet notes that a perfect bear market rally may have just concluded. Equities should head lower, in the opinion of analysts at Nordea.

“A perfect bear market rally may have just concluded. It was set up by oversold conditions and underpinned by a plethora of policy measures from central banks and authorities and by rebalancing of pooled portfolios needing to buy equities to revamp the allocation.” 

“Smart money likely sold equities into the final hours of the quarter-end and to us it looks like another leg lower in equities could be coming now.”

“It is by the way not unusual to see these kinds of rallies during a bear market. We had similar rallies post dotcom and Lehman and for some reason the larger the rebound, the deeper the subsequent setback on average.”

“The equity market will have to look for clues on how long a curfew/recession the world economy will be faced with. Saying that Q2 will be historically poor is just so old news by now. Smart thoughts on Q3 and Q4 are much scarcer.”

Labour Market: The European model is superior to the American – Natixis

FXStreet notes that the traditional functioning of the labour market in a recession is that in the US, companies lay off workers suddenly and rapidly while in the euro zone, the adjustment in employment is far slower, per Natixis.

“The European model of employment adjustment in a recession (slow, cushioned as much as possible) is superior to the US model (drastic adjustment of employment) because it prevents a worsening of the crisis through a decline in household demand and a loss of human capital.”

“The flaw of the European model is that the slow and cushioned adjustment in employment leads to a decline in companies’ profitability and capacity to invest. However, a new European model is emerging with the coronavirus crisis.”

“Efforts are being made to limit the fall in corporate earnings as much as possible: government coverage of the wages of employees on short-time working schemes, deferral of taxes and certain charges, which limits the disadvantage of the European model compared with the US model.”

Coronavirus: Japan’s capital records 89 new coronavirus cases on Friday

This is below 97 new cases reported on Thursday, which was the biggest daily increase in Tokyo, and brings the Japanese capital's total tally to 773 cases.

Tokyo's governor Yuriko Koike again asked residents to refrain from non-essential outings, especially at night and on weekends.

AUD/USD: Global recession not reflected in the Aussie – ANZ

FXStreet notes that despite improvements in the risk environment, it’s not clear that the increased default risk is adequately reflected in the AUD/USD pair. The resilience of the Aussie appears premised on a V-shaped recover, per ANZ Bank.

“The market is underweighting the duration of the shock to global commerce and overweighting the prospects of a V-shape recovery.”

“We think AUD/USD current levels are towards the top of the trading range and hold a downside bias for the next quarter.”

“We are comfortable retaining a forecast for the Aussie in the low 0.50s, but note that bottom is likely to come in the latter part of the second quarter.”

Gold: Maintaining its safe-haven status – OCBC

FXStreet reports that gold seems to have lost its safe-haven allure in the past weeks. Logically, this makes little sense and is highly counter-intuitive, according to economists at OCBC Bank.

"As Covid-19 started to invoke fears of a dollar liquidity crunch, gold became a ripe candidate for a selloff as was a highly liquid asset and one of the few markets still posting year-to-date gains."

"Gold properties - rare, inert and high density - still makes it one of the top choices as an alternative asset to stocks and bonds."

"The current liquidity crunch highlights inherent failings within the economic system and does not suggest gold has lost its status as a safe-haven."

Euro zone retail sales rose sharply in February

According to estimates from Eurostat, in February 2020 - the month before COVID-19 containment measures began to be widely introduced by Member States -, the seasonally adjusted volume of retail trade increased by 0.9% in the euro area and by 0.8% in the EU, compared with January 2020. In January 2020, the retail trade volume increased by 0.7% in the euro area and by 0.8% in the EU. In February 2020 compared with February 2019, the calendar adjusted retail sales index increased by 3.0% in the euro area and by 3.2% in the EU.

In the euro area in February 2020, compared with January 2020, the volume of retail trade increased by 2.4% for food, drinks and tobacco and 0.2% for non-food products, while automotive fuels fell by 0.1%. In the EU, the volume of retail trade increased by 2.1% for food, drinks and tobacco, by 0.2% for non-food products and by 0.1% for automotive fuels.

In the euro area in February 2020, compared with February 2019, the volume of retail trade increased by 3.2% for food, drinks and tobacco, by 2.9% for non-food products and by 0.3% for automotive fuel. In the EU, the retail trade volume increased by 3.6% for non-food products, by 3.1% for food, drinks and tobacco and by 0.6% for automotive fuel.

UK Services PMI showed a record fall in March - IHS Markit/CIPS

According to the report from IHS Markit/CIPS, March data indicated the steepest downturn across the UK service sector for more than two decades. The slump in activity was almost exclusively linked by survey respondents to business shutdowns and cancelled orders in response to the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic.

The headline seasonally adjusted IHS Markit/CIPS Final UK Services PMI Business Activity Index posted 34.5 in March, below the earlier 'flash' reading of 35.7 and down sharply from 53.2 in February. This reading exceeded the previous record low seen at the height of the global financial crisis and signalled by far the fastest downturn in service sector output since the survey began in July 1996. The latest survey data were collected between 12-27 March.

Sharp reductions in activity were broad-based across the sector during March, with only the technology services subcategory recording pockets of continued business expansion. Mirroring the trend for output volumes, latest data indicated a survey-record drop in new work received by service providers. The rate of decline was also much sharper than the previous record seen in November 2008. Survey respondents overwhelmingly attributed lower demand to a slump in business and consumer spending amid emergency public health measures to halt the spread of COVID-19. New business from abroad fell at an even faster pace than that signalled for total orders during March, reflecting international travel restrictions and widespread business closures across Europe.

Employment numbers fell for the first time in five months and at the fastest rate since June 2009. Service providers commented on a mixture of hiring freezes and forced redundancies amid the slump in business activity seen during March.

Meanwhile, business expectations for the next 12 months dropped to the lowest in more than twenty years of data collection. Survey respondents overwhelmingly cited the public health crisis and uncertainty about the likely length of disruption to business operations.

Eurozone economy suffers record fall in activity during March - IHS Markit

According to the report from IHS Markit, the Eurozone PMI Composite Output Index recorded its biggest ever single monthly fall in March to hit a survey record low of 29.7. Not only was the index down from February's 51.6, it was also notably weaker than the earlier flash estimate of 31.4 as the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic impacted heavily on the euro area's private sector economy.

Both sectors covered by the survey recorded notable falls in output during March, with the greater decline seen in services where a series record fall in activity was registered. Goods producers saw production decline for a fourteenth successive month, and at the sharpest rate since April 2009.

Country level data indicated that falls in activity were considerable and wide-reaching across the eurozone during March. The four largest nations covered by the survey all registered record declines in activity, with Italy and Spain experiencing the sharpest reductions.

Confidence about the future was the lowest recorded by the survey since data were first available in July 2012. Worries over COVID-19 and the various measures designed to contain the outbreak, plus the uncertainty over how long these could be in place for, weighed heavily on sentiment. Confidence deteriorated to record lows across all nations during March. Such uncertainty led many companies to reduce their employment levels. According to the March data, job losses were registered for the first time in over five years. Moreover, the rate of contraction was the sharpest since June 2009 with job losses registered across all nations covered by the survey. Spain recorded the sharpest contraction in employment.

Oil: Any agreement on production cuts will have minimal impact – ANZ

FXStreet reports that Crude oil prices soared higher after reports major producers would cut production. Volatility in the oil market is likely to remain high as the market contemplates possible production cuts, per ANZ Bank.

"President Trump tweeted that he has spoken with Russia and Saudi Arabia and that a 10-15mb/d production cut had been agreed to."

"Saudi Arabia did hold out an oil branch, calling for an urgent meeting of the OPEC+ alliance to reach a fair deal that would restore balance to the oil markets. However, we believe any agreement on production cuts will have minimal impact on the oil market."

"The closing of borders and lockdowns has had a precipitous impact on oil demand. Overall we calculate world crude oil demand has fallen by about 20mb/d."

NZD/USD still seen within a consolidative range – UOB

FXStreet reports that following the recent price action in NZD/USD, FX Strategists at UOB Group expect the pair to remain side-lined for the time being.

24-hour view: "NZD traded between 0.5881 and 0.5973 yesterday, relatively close to our expected range of 0.5890/0.5990. The underlying tone has weakened and a dip below the strong support at 0.5880 would not be surprising. That said, 0.5850 is another strong support and this level may not yield as easily. On the upside, 0.5980 is likely strong enough to cap any intraday recovery (minor resistance is at 0.5950)."

Next 1-3 weeks: "While our 'strong support' level of 0.5880 'survived' for the second straight day (overnight low of 0.5881), the price action is enough to indicate that last Friday's (27 Mar) high of 0.6067 is a short-term top. From here, the immediate risk is tilted to the downside but any weakness is viewed as part of a 0.5820/0.6020 range (a sustained decline below 0.5820 appears unlikely for now). In other words, NZD is likely to trade within a broad range a period."

ADB cuts developing Asia's growth outlook sharply on Covid-19 impact

In the Asian Development Outlook, released Friday, the Asian Development Bank (ADB) said that regional economic growth in developing Asia will decline sharply in 2020 due to the effects of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, before recovering in 2021.

The report forecasts regional growth of 2.2% in 2020, a downward revision of 3.3 percentage points relative to the 5.5% ADB had forecast in September 2019. Growth is expected to rebound to 6.2% in 2021, assuming that the outbreak ends and activity normalizes. Excluding the newly industrialized economies of Hong Kong, China; the Republic of Korea; Singapore; and Taipei,China, developing Asia is forecast to grow 2.4% this year, compared to 5.7% in 2019, before rebounding to 6.7% next year.

"The evolution of the global pandemic-and thus the outlook for the global and regional economy-is highly uncertain. Growth could turn out lower, and the recovery slower, than we are currently forecasting. For this reason, strong and coordinated efforts are needed to contain the COVID-19 pandemic and minimize its economic impact, especially on the most vulnerable," said ADB Chief Economist Yasuyuki Sawada.

In the People's Republic of China (PRC), a sharp contraction in industry, services, retail sales, and investment in the first quarter due to the COVID-19 outbreak will pull growth down to 2.3% this year. Growth will rebound to an above normal 7.3% in 2021 before reverting back to normal growth.

Underpinning much of the weakness across Asia is a deteriorating external environment, with growth stagnating or contracting in the major industrial economies of the United States, Euro area, and Japan. Some commodity and oil exporters, such as those in Central Asia, will be hit by a collapse in commodity prices. Brent oil prices are expected to average $35 per barrel this year, down from $64 in 2019.

FXStreet reports that FX Strategists at UOB Group noted EUR/USD stays weak although a move to YTD lows looks unlikely in the short-term horizon.

24-hour view: "We expected EUR to weaken yesterday but held the view that it is 'unlikely to threaten the strong support at 1.0840'. The subsequent weakness exceeded our expectation as EUR slumped to an overnight low of 1.0819. The breach of the strong support coupled with improved downward momentum suggests EUR is likely to weaken further towards 1.0785. For today, the next support at 1.0750 is likely out of reach. Overall, the current downward pressure in EUR is deemed intact unless it can recover back above 1.0900 (minor resistance is at 1.0870)."

Next 1-3 weeks: "The ease by which EUR took out the strong support at 1.0840 came as a surprise (overnight low of 1.0819). The rapid decline and the subsequent weak daily closing in NY (1.0856, -0.96%) suggest there is room for EUR to weaken further in the coming days. At this stage, it is premature to expect EUR to revisit last month's low at 1.0635 (there is a relatively strong support at 1.0700). Meanwhile, EUR is expected to stay under pressure unless it can move above 1.0980 ('strong resistance' level)."

USD: Too early to buy into the negative USD story - Nordea

eFXdata reports that Nordea Research discusses the USD outlook and adopts a bearish bias in the medium-term but warns that it's too early to position structurally for such weakness.

"The launch of the QE-ternity program from the Fed will likely prove to be a material negative USD game-changer down the road. A LOT of new USDs will be printed, which is usually a USD negative story, but we are not sure that QE matters a lot in the short term, if curfews are prolonged and disinflationary risks remain high. So far, the price action since the Fed launched the QE-bazooka has been supportive of inflation expectations, which is a negative USD story. Ultimately, we remain firm that a negative USD bias is very warranted over the next 6-12 months (10% weaker USD is not out of the question), but we think it is too early to really buy into the negative USD story," Nordea notes.

"In a complete meltdown globally, we would reckon that EUR/USD could go to parity or even below (Cable would like also go to parity), but we are not ready to call for such a scenario, but consider the tail risk very fat on the global scenario - also in FX space," Nordea adds.

O conceito de mercado de câmbio possui várias definições:

  • mercado de câmbio é um ambiente onde se realizam as relações econômicas, se manifestando através da compra e venda de ativos financeiros (divisas e valores mobiliários), bem como as operações financeiras relacionadas com o investimento em moedas estrangeiras;
  • mercado de câmbio é o ponto central financeiro de operações de compra e venda de moeda estrangeira, baseadas na oferta e demanda;
  • mercado de câmbio é um conjunto de bancos autorizados, empresas de investimentos, corretoras, bolsas de valores e bancos estrangeiros, que realizam operações de câmbio;
  • mercado de câmbio é um conjunto de sistemas de comunicação, que estabelecem uma comunicação entre os bancos de países diferentes, responsáveis pelas transferências financeiras internacionais.

Concluindo, o mercado de câmbio é um mercado no qual são efetuadas negociações financeiras, ou seja, é realizada a troca da moeda de um país pela moeda de outro país, por uma determinada taxa de câmbio. Taxa de câmbio expressa o preço relativo entre duas moedas, ou o preço de uma unidade de moeda estrangeira em termos de moeda nacional.

O mercado de câmbio faz parte do mercado global, focado no conjunto de operações financeiras relacionadas com a troca de moedas, em nível internacional.

O mercado de câmbio pode ser internacional ou nacional.

O mercado de câmbio nacional é um mercado que funciona dentro de um país.

O mercado de câmbio internacional é o mercado global que abrange os mercados de câmbio de todos os países. Ele é descentralizado, ou seja, não tem uma determinada localização onde são realizadas as negociações. Todas as operações financeiras são realizadas através de um conjunto de canais de cabo e via satélite, que garantem a comunicação dos mercados de câmbio regionais em nível internacional. Entre os mercados regionais, se destacam o mercado Asiático localizado em Tóquio, Hong Kong, Cingapura e Melbourne, Europeu (em Londres, Frankfurt e Zurique), Americano (em Nova York, Chicago e Los Angeles).

As negociações de moedas no mercado de câmbio internacional são realizadas com base nas taxas flutuantes, determinadas de acordo com a demanda e oferta no mercado, bem como dependendo da influência de diferentes indicadores macroeconômicos. O mercado de câmbio internacional é Forex.

Além disso, os mercados de câmbio podem ser divididos em mercados de ações e mercados de balcão (OTC). O mercado de ações é um mercado organizado, onde as negociações são efetuadas em um mercado de bolsa, isto é, em uma empresa que estabelece regras de negociação e fornece todas as condições necessárias para sua realização.

O mercado de balcão — é um mercado que não possui regras de negociação nem local definidos para efetuar as operações de compra e venda, igualmente à bolsa de valores.

O mercado de balcão costuma ser organizado pelas empresas prestadoras de serviços de compra e venda de moedas, que podem, às vezes, fazer parte do mercado de ações. Na maioria dos casos, nesse mercado as operações financeiras são realizadas na Internet.

O volume de negociação no mercado de balcão é maior que no mercado de ações. Forex é considerado o mercado de balcão com a maior liquidez. Ele funciona 24 horas por dia em todos os centros financeiros do mundo (de Nova York a Tóquio).

O mercado de câmbio — é o ambiente mais importante que serve para garantir que todos os processos econômicos ocorram da forma certa.

As principais funções macroeconômicas do mercado de câmbio são:

  • garantir as condições necessárias para realizar os pagamentos internacionais a tempo, a fim de desenvolver o comércio exterior;
  • fornecer condições e mecanismos adequados, para que a política monetária e econômica dos estados tenha eficácia;
  • diversificar as reservas cambiais;
  • estabelecer uma taxa de câmbio conforme a demanda e oferta;

No mercado de câmbio, a principal ferramenta de negociação são moedas. As taxas de câmbio são influenciadas pela oferta e demanda no mercado.

No entanto, as taxas também são afetadas por um conjunto de fatores importantes, tais como a situação econômica mundial e nacional, bem como as decisões políticas.

As notícias sobre essas informações estão disponíveis em fontes diferentes:

  • Relatórios exibindo o nível de desenvolvimento econômico do estado.

Quanto mais estável for o desenvolvimento econômico, mais estável for a moeda do país. Ou seja, de acordo com os dados estatísticos fornecidos através de diferentes meios de comunicação estatais, é possível prever a taxa de câmbio no futuro próximo.
Esses dados incluem:

  • PIB
  • taxa de desemprego;
  • rendimento de capital;
  • índice de preços ao consumidor;
  • índice de preços ao produtor;
  • propensão ao consumo;
  • salários fora do setor agrícola;
  • construção de moradias, etc.

Mais um fator importante é a taxa de juros no estado, que regulam a política de crédito de empresas. Na União Europeia é o BCE (Banco Central Europeu), nos EUA é o Sistema de Reserva Federal (FED), no Japão é o Banco do Japão (BoJ), no Reino Unido é o Banco da Inglaterra (BoE), na Suíça é o Banco Nacional Suíço (SNB), etc.

As taxas de juros são definidas nas reuniões dos bancos centrais. Em seguida, a decisão passa a ser publicada em fontes oficiais. Se o banco central reduz a taxa de juros, a oferta doméstica cresce, enquanto ocorre a desvalorização da moeda nacional em relação às outras opções de moedas. Se a taxa de juros cresce, a moeda nacional volta a se valorizar mais.

  • Discursos de líderes, economistas e analistas de países diferentes.

A taxa de câmbio pode mudar significativamente após um discurso, ou até mesmo uma frase, do presidente. Temas de discursos que podem influenciar a mudança da taxa de câmbio:

  • análise do mercado de câmbio;
  • mudanças na política monetária e econômica;
  • política fiscal;
  • previsões da situação econômica, etc.

Essas notícias são divulgadas em fontes diferentes. Apesar das notícias internacionais mais importantes publicadas no idioma oficial do país serem encontradas facilmente, as notícias sobre a política econômica doméstica e a economia de outros países não é divulgada com tanta frequência. Tais notícias costumam ser publicadas em mídias nacionais e em seu idioma oficial.

Para uma pessoa, é difícil acompanhar todas as notícias, pois existe uma grande probabilidade de perder um grande evento que pode revolucionar a situação no mercado. Seguindo o princípio básico da empresa, proporcionar os nossos clientes com as melhores condições de negociação, selecionamos as notícias mais importantes e recentes do mundo inteiro e publicamos no nosso site.

A Central Analítica da TeleTRADE faz diariamente o monitoramento e análise de notícias dos meios de comunicação nacionais e internacionais, selecionando as que provavelmente podem influenciar a taxa de câmbio. Essas são as principais notícias exibidas no nosso feed.
