Spotlight for GDP
29 April 2014

We opened the currency markets yesterday to a rather quiet trading day, with rates looking similar. At least from this point we have a raft of Eurozone data and some from the US, as well as figures out from the UK.

We kick off this morning with the most valuable asset for the Pound today. Q1 GDP came in below expected but still showing some signs of improvement on the last figures released from the Office of National Statistics. The positive news shows signs that UK growth is continuing and suggestion that the UK is now the fastest growing economy in the G7, so the analysts are closely watching and to those looking to purchase currency soon from Sterling are aware if the expectations on further data are not met.

Across in the Eurozone the first data is out from Germany with other sentiment and confidence from around the countries. Inflation within the EU is a safe bet and one that the ECB keeps its focus via their strict policy.

US data is thin on the grounds today, with most of the big data expected at the end of the week in line with Non Farm Payrolls and Monthly Policy Decisions from the Federal Reserve. As always you can keep up to data on all the latest information with our International Payments team.
