The Week in Forex, Review and Preview

Ralph Shell, Excel Analyst

While meaningful US economic data was fairly sparse during the past week, this is not the case going forward.  Combine the flurry of reports this coming week, and the geopolitical risks resulting from the Ukrainian crisis - the last week of April promises to be eventful.

The standstill in the Ukraine continues as the Russian Army troops remain assembled at the Ukrainian border, taunting the West with their presence, and the secrecy of their mission.

Excel Markets May 2014 Forex Demo Trading ContestPress reports Friday indicated the private dialogue between the US and Russian leaders has stopped, further unnerving the markets.  President Obama has threatened Putin, not with military might, but reams of documents and regulations - an Obama speciality, designed to impede or obstruct financial transactions.

Canadian Dollar Looking For Direction

Ralph Shell, Excel Analyst

Today (Tuesday April 8th) the Canadian Dollar shrugged off some disappointing fundamental information and held its own versus the USD.  After the cold winter, it had been assumed housing starts would stage a strong monthly gain but such was not the case.  The starts were forecast at 156.8K down from the anticipated 192, and last month's 190.6. 

Excel Markets May 2014 Forex Demo Trading ContestRemember, this is a monthly number of initial housing construction, which is then multiplied by twelve, to arrive at an annual rate.  The value of the building permits was an 11.6% reduction in value versus a forecasted 2.6% drop.
