What’s happening in FX Markets?

We spoke to Sean Doherty, FX expert at RationalFX about FX markets in May 2018. For a second successive month the US dollar has been the currency of choice for investors. Sterling remains unloved but the euro is now also being questioned by investors. It is not difficult to find analysts who believe the pound is undervalued, some say by as much as 20%. However, the political risks at the moment are more obvious in Britain (Brexit paralysis) and the euro zone (ungovernent in Italy) than they are in the United States (Trumpian caprice).

Frequently Asked Questions

Who are Trade Finance Global’s Currency Team?

The Trade Finance Global team are experts in trade finance, helping businesses trade domestically and overseas. Currency solutions for businesses are vital to protect margin and revenue for any business, especially during times of foreign exchange volatility.

With simple planning, talking to experts, and implementing strategies which can help protect your business, maximise returns when trading in different currencies and reduce the risk, Trade Finance Global is the only multi-product solution for trading overseas.

Why is currency hedging important?

Recent events around trade wars and referendums have driven volatility in major FX markets. As a result, the volatility of currencies has increased significantly and is now becoming a common occurrence. Managing volatility and currency risk are key for any business owner; the management strategy a company undergoes is critical for its success, a healthy balance sheet and reliable transfer of currency from overseas customers. Furthermore, margins are often squeezed as a result of increased regulatory scrutiny and KYC requirements.

There are an increasing range of FX instruments and products that if implemented, can help companies in the form of risk management. Risks include:

  • Exchange rate volatility
  • Political risk
  • Interest rate changes
  • LIBOR and INTERBANK rate changes

When trading in exotic currencies, the fluctuations and volatility of currencies are a lot more than common FX pairs. So risk management, hedging of currency risk and monitoring FX changes is critical to the business owner, especially if margins are thin (e.g. for commodities traders and producers).

Various strategies are used to manage currency risk and these usually involve using spot contractsoptions, and forwards.
