instaforex

The UK wage growth is below inflation, despite unemployment hitting the lowest rate since 1975. According to some economists, the low wage growth rate will not affect the Bank of England’s decision to raise interest rates in May 2018. 

After wages rose by 2.8% over the past three months, the pound sterling has depreciated. The inflation rate for three months was about 2.9%. According to the Office for National Statistics (ONS), Britain’s unemployment rate unexpectedly declined to 4.2%, which was the lowest in more than 40 years. 

Earlier, the Bank of England said it expected acceleration of the wage growth due to a decline in the unemployment rate. According to the regulator, if this happens, it will be possible to raise interest rates.

Trump’s tweets shake Russian stocks
instaforex

As an asset’s price incorporates all relevant information, financial markets depend on Donald Trump’s tweets. Emotional remarks from the US leader are included in fundamental analysis as market-moving events. The Russian markets are especially sensitive to them. 

 A few days ago, Donald Trump made the Russian stocks to incur heavy losses with just one comment. He told the Kremlin to get ready for a missile attack on the Assad regime despite Russia’s objections. “Russia vows to shoot down any and all missiles fired at Syria. Get ready Russia, because they will be coming, nice and new and “smart!” You shouldn’t be partners with a Gas Killing Animal who kills his people and enjoys it!” The market instantly showed a negative response. Half an hour later, Trump posted another tweet, saying that he is ready to help Russia with the economy. This enabled Russian companies to recoup some losses. Eventually, the Russian stock market revived after the US leader had decided to cancel a new portion of sanctions against Russia.   

Experts say that the Russian market is vulnerable to the Twitter diplomacy. Verbal interventions from Washington are able to drive a rally and cause losses of the Russian stocks. This is what happens on a daily basis. Unfortunately, statements and decisions of the Russian policymakers are of minor importance to the domestic assets and a forex rate of the Russian ruble.

Trump postpones new sanctions against Russia and revives ruble
instaforex

 The Russian ruble struggles to stay afloat desperately. While the country’s central bank and the government do not hurry to interfere, only external factors can provide support to the national currency. And the support came quickly. Donald Trump, the most famous trend-maker on the globe, managed to prevent the ruble’s crash in just one tweet. 

The US President decided to postpone new sanctions against Russia which boosted a rise in both the ruble and the Russian stocks. According to the sources that are close to the White House administration, the sanctions policy was put on hold after a discussion with the National Security Advisor. Additionally, the American leader disapproved the fact that the new package of sanctions was a settled issue, though Trump himself hesitated to take such a decision. Anyway, the ruble benefits from this situation. The Russian currency has not only ceased falling, but also managed to offset some of its losses against the US dollar and the euro. 

As for the new sanctions, they are intended mostly for the companies that supply goods to Syria. Thus, this measure is Washington’s response to Moscow’s support of the Assad regime. The previous sanctions package against the Russian oligarchs triggered a crash on the Russian stock market and a slump in the ruble exchange rate to the 1.5-year low.

Turkey's lira hits record lows
instaforex

 Last week, Turkey’s lira fell to record lows, CNBC reported. According to analysts, the Turkish government's inability to balance the monetary policy to combat 10% inflation was the reason behind the decline.   

Geopolitical uncertainty over the military conflict in Syria also prompted the fall. On April 13, the Turkish currency made a rebound on the back of top officials’ statements about possible action regarding the exchange rate. However, that did not help much. The currency climbed back by only 0.74%, hitting 4.08 lira to the dollar. 

Turkey’s President Recep Erdogan has been opposed to tightening monetary policy and raising rates, despite inflation reaching a whopping 10.23%. This causes discontent among emerging market investors. 

The lira, which had lost 13.9% since August 2017 to an all-time low of 4.1944 against the dollar, is currently considered one of the worst-performing emerging market currencies.  

Meanwhile, Turkey's treasury bond yields reached highs and its current account deficit increased by more than 60% to $4.152 billion in February. 

The Turkish real GDP growth came in at 7.4% in 2017, more than double the pace of 2016. According to analysts’ estimates, it is the highest growth rate among the G20 members.

Russian ruble takes nosedive
instaforex

The Russian ruble is in trouble. A new package of sanctions imposed by the United States against Russia put the national currency under pressure and triggered a crash in the Russian stock markets. Though the sanctions were reinforced only by the Americans, the Russian ruble has weakened against other currencies as well. All major currencies strengthened against the ruble. Thus, after the US dollar appreciated to 68 rubles, the euro rose to 78 rubles. And it seems that the situation will remain the same. 

The sanctions were reinforced after the recent chemical attack in Syria had occurred. The global community blamed the government forces and Russia for this incident. Washington has already announced plans to discuss new restrictive measures in response to this attack. So, as Russia becomes more isolated, the exchange rate of its national currency slides lower. Currently, the Russian central bank has no reason to interfere and confined itself to technical measures. Under the conditions of high volatility of the national currency, the project proposed by the central bank became relevant. The financial watchdog intends to order all banks to fix the exchange rate right after they get verbal agreement from a client to conduct a transaction.
