Quiet markets awake to key data
23 April 2014

Yesterday gave the markets a relatively quiet day on the markets and it helped the analyst’s fall back into place after the recent Bank Holiday. In terms of UK data we did not see any out during the day we shifted our focus across to the Eurozone and US. Mainly a key fact for traders was the Pounds continuing strength with last week making small gains across some of the major currencies. Proving that for the moment the pound does have some sentiment left.

An emerging picture of today is a very different one; the key data due out today could have some overall affect on sending money overseas. In the early hours we had released Australian inflation data, which came in under the expected 0.3% of the target of 2.9%. On the back of poor Chinese results, which often have a knock on effect within the Southern region. The AUD fell down to its knees weakened by up to a cent and a half against the Pound, making transfers to Australia cheaper in the long run.

Moving on towards the Eurozone focused data, we see EU Markit PMI figures released closely followed by the Bank of England policy meeting. Which did see a holding of interest rates as expected all in aid of stimulating the growth within the UK economy.
