UK: Weekly FX Market Update 10 July

CalendarJuly 10, 2023
  • Sterling had a volatile week, gaining against the euro and US dollar after a choppy end to the weeks trading.

  • Bank of England Gov Bailey speaks twice this week, however, further attention may be given to the release of the Financial Stability Report on Wednesday.

  • UK Average Earnings are announced on Tuesday. Will they point to a possible wage-price spiral occurring in the UK?

  • UK GDP is released on Thursday. Could this show the UK economy faltering in the face of persistent interest rate hikes?

  • ECB President Lagarde continues to warn of higher interest rates, stating that the ECB ‘wont stand idly by if margins and wages rise’.

  • Investors will look to ZEW Economic Sentiment, EU Economic Forecasts and EU Trade data for direction this week.

  • The single currency could also make a move after the release of US CPI on Wednesday.

  • The FOMC meeting minutes were released on Wesnesay, showing a continued desire from the Fed to hike rates twice more this year.

  • Dallas Fed President Logan confirmed his support later in the week, that more rate hikes may be necessary.

  • US employment data released last Friday showed slightly weakening Non-Farm Payrolls, although average hourly earnings on a monthly basis rose from 0.3% to 0.4%.

  • US CPI could be the market highlight this week. Will the headline rate dip below last month’s 4% reading?

  • Will core CPI fall below last months 5.3% reading or remain ‘sticky’ and encourage more US rate hikes?

  • Consumer Sentiment will round the week off.
