US data and G7 meeting set to provide next direction for currencies
CMC Markets Friday September 15, 2006 - 07:26:05 GMT

Arguably the debate still centers around whether or not the FOMC will look to resume the run of rate hikes at next week’s meeting in an attempt to stamp out any latent inflationary pressures even though there are repeated suggestions that the US economy is already slowing down  More...    More...

Flurry of economic numbers set to direct dollar, Euro, ahead of Bernanke comments
CMC Markets Thursday August 24, 2006 - 07:29:50 GMT

August 24th - The economic calendar is picking up momentum marginally although tomorrow’s speech by Ben Bernanke on inflation is continuing to dominate many traders’ thoughts. Yesterday’s disappointing existing home sales data didn’t perhaps have the effect many would have envisaged on the greenback after the dollar quickly bounced back off session lows although further numbers today – including weekly jobless claims, durable goods orders and the new home sales – will likely offer some more sustainable direction, especially if we see a degree of consensus emerging amongst this data  More...    More...
