US may avoid recession whereas Europe may plunge deeper
us-eu.jpg


Just before the weekend began, reports from the United States showed that there is finally some light at the end of what has been a very long tunnel as inflation began to decrease.

On Friday, figures were released showing that consumer price increases eased to 7.7% in October which, although still high compared to the levels most consumers in North America have been used to over recent years, is a definite step in the right direction after inflation headed over the double figures mark a few months ago.

In Europe, however, things are not showing any signs of change. In the United Kingdom it remains just under 10%, and in the Eurozone its 10.7%.

Whereas the majority of the Eurozone and Britain were locked down periodically for over a year and a half, some parts of the United States remained free of any such draconian rules and had managed to maintain productivity. Some of those areas were the states of Florida and Texas, which are both highly urbanized states with large industrial capacity.

This is certainly one factor, as by comparison the Eurozone and United Kingdom had their entire economies postponed for a sustained period of time and are now in fiscal dire straits with that as a major contributing factor.

This morning, analysts at Morgan Stanley reinforced this dynamic, stating that Britain and the euro zone economies are likely to tip into recession next year, whereas by contrast the United States may avoid a recession thanks to a resilient job market.

Morgan Stanley's analysis of this situation also focused on the Federal Reserve's interest rate policy, and the investment bank considers that the Federal Reserve is likely to keep the interest rates at a high level during 2023 as although inflation has decreased in October, 7.7% is still high enough to warrant maintaining high interest rates.

According to a report by Reuters today, Morgan Stanley predicts a sharp split between developed economies in 2023 which are "in or near recession" while emerging economies "recover modestly" but said an overall global pickup would likely remain elusive. China's economy was predicted to grow 5% in 2023, outpacing the average 3.7% growth expected for emerging markets, while the average growth in the Group of 10 developed countries was forecast at just 0.3%.

The value of the British Pound against the US Dollar has performed accordingly, as the Pound dropped in value this morning on the opening of the London trading session, after a substantial rise in value over the weekend, marking a steady move away from several weeks of plummeting Pound values.

FTSE 100 index jumps 10 points in one day!
ftse.jpg


The London Stock Exchange's index containing the 100 most prestigious companies, the FTSE 100, has made a sudden jump upwards by a remarkable 10% this morning.

By 10.00am UK time, it stood at 7,395, representing its highest point over the past 30 days.

The mainstream media is focusing on the insolvency of publicly listed clothes brand Joules, which after 33 years of trading, had its shares suspended ahead of the expected appointment of Interpath Advisory as administrators.

This has not caused the drop that the tabloids across the United Kingdom had predicted and in fact quite the opposite is the case.

Despite the British government's will to raise taxes and unemployment and inflation figures due today and tomorrow before chancellor Jeremy Hunt’s autumn statement on Thursday, the Pound is actually up against the US Dollar at 1.18, and the FTSE 100's stellar performance is defying the gloomy outlook which is being viewed by many citizens.

Inflation is still standing at around 10%, and there is speculation that interest rates could rise dramatically to around 5% in January as Britain's recession continues, the economy reeling in the wake of lockdowns, followed by Brexit-related issues, and subsequently a floundering government led for a record short period of 44 days by Liz Truss who tanked the Pound and caused tremendous levels of uncertainty alongside equally short-lived Chancellor Kwasi Kwarteng whose mini-budget struck fear into the soul of hundreds of thousands of people before it was canceled following the resignation of both Ms Truss and Mr Kwarteng.

So far, the British job market has managed to hold up quite well. The 3,300 increase in new jobs was accompanied by an unemployment rate of 3.6%, which compares with 3.5% the previous month. This has been a positive figure.

Ultimately, it is still clear that volatility in the usually utterly stable stock markets and prestigious indices is the order of the day.

Inflation in the UK hits high at 11..1% as US inflation goes down
uk-inflation.jpg


The floundering British economy has once again been subject to a set of metrics that have marked out the severity of the current situation, this time it is yet again the announcement of an increase in inflation.

Inflation in the United Kingdom reached 11.1% in October 2022, which is higher than had originally been predicted, marking out the very bleak nature of the British economic situation especially considering that yesterday, the United States government issued official figures showing that its level of inflation had reduced significantly to 7.7%.

As can perhaps be expected, low-income households suffered the biggest jump in the cost of living, while high income households were less hit during that period, because low-income households spend more of their money on energy and food where costs have soared.

Surprisingly, however, despite the very high inflation figures in the United Kingdom, the British Pound actually rose against the US Dollar to 1.19 last night and has thus far sustained that level of value, but it fell against the Euro during the early hours of the trading day this morning.

It is looking likely that the Bank of England will not pause its program of increasing interest rates given the 11.1% inflation figure for October, giving more weight to the speculation that interest rates may rise to as much as 5% by January 2023, which would put pressure on people paying mortgages and other loans.

The housing market outside London has already slowed down tremendously compared to just two months ago after 10 banks across the United Kingdom withdrew mortgage products from the market.

Many analysts are looking back to the dark days of the early 1980s when the British economy was struggling after James Callaghan's 1979 'Winter of Discontent' in which there was no public money to pay for essential services and piles of household refuse were meters high in the streets, and companies implemented a 3-day working week due to inability to afford to pay wages.

Today, the set of circumstances that has led to this level of inflation are completely different to those of the late 1970s, hence the uncertainty of what lies ahead and volatility in the currency markets.

Pound's gains wiped off after tax-grab budget leads toward retail sales outlook
gbp.jpg


The monumental and sustained decline in value that blighted the British Pound over recent months in which it almost went into freefall with no sign of an end suddenly began to show signs of improvement a couple of weeks ago when Liz Truss, the British Prime Minister to hold the shortest tenure in office in British history - just 44 days - resigned.

Her resignation was considered a positive step by the markets, as along with her leaving her office, an equally short-lived stint in office for Chancellor of the Exchequer (Finance Minister) Kwasi Kwarteng also came to an end.

During Ms Truss' 44 day term as Prime Minster, she ramped up the rhetoric against Russia, presided over a disastrous mini-budget which was canceled the moment she left office, and created a sense of nervousness in the markets.

The pound began to recover after her tenure as Prime Minister ended, and although still very much in the doldrums and having not managed to reach 1.18 against the US Dollar which by contrast has been a very strong currency over recent months, the economic woes in the United Kingdom have been too grave to ignore.

Last week, new Prime Minister Rishi Sunak along with new Chancellor of the Exchequer Jeremy Hunt unveiled their new budget, which was laden with significant socialist-style tax increases, right at a time when the economy is in limp-home mode following the hundreds of billions which flowed out of the coffers during 2020 and 2021 under Mr Sunak's watch as Chancellor.

The pound crashed in value once again yesterday during the hours of the London trading session, and although it is not down to the low levels that it reached at the end of Ms Truss' tenure at Number 10 Downing Street, it did head back to the low 1.18 range.

It appears that the confidence-busting high-tax budget which now causes the average British household to be even more cash-strapped during what is being dubbed a 'cost of living crisis', and the potential that some high net worth individuals or companies with international offices may move their wealth to more tax-friendly jurisdictions, has caused investors and traders to take a conservative view once again.

This drop came in at exactly the time when earnings reports from many publicly-listed retail giants are about to be released, and whilst we do not know what those figures may be as yet, it is estimated by many analysts that they could be a bit lower than usual at this time of year due to people simply not having as much disposable income available as they once did, and the government's imminent interest rate rises which are estimated to reach around 5% by January 2023 as inflation soared over the 11% mark in Britain by Friday last week.

By contrast, the United States, whilst still blighted by high inflation over the past year, is not fairing so badly at all. At the end of last week, inflation in the United States actually decreased to 7.7%, and whilst that may still sound a lot compared to the levels that it stood at by the end of last decade, it is far lower than the 10% it reached by the summer of this year.

By no means is the United States economy out of the woods yet, but it is certainly showing signs of returning to some degree of fortitude.

Britain, by contrast, battles on with serious challenges ahead.

The Collapse of FTX

FTX filed for bankruptcy on Nov. 11, 2022. The future of FTX as a cryptocurrency exchange is in serious jeopardy. As of mid-November 2022, withdrawals are disabled and a notice on the FTX website says the company “strongly advises against depositing.”

TOP-20 most powerful currencies in the world

main.jpg


According to the United Nations, 180 currencies are legal tender, but when asked what is the strongest currency in the world, what comes to mind? The US dollar, which is strengthening because of the Fed’s hawkish monetary policy stance in response to skyrocketing inflation. Or the euro, despite the International Monetary Fund predicting just 0.5% growth in the European economy in 2023 and warning that “the worst is yet to come” due to the war in Ukraine, record inflation, and the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Perhaps the British pound, despite the UK’s challenging domestic picture? You’d be surprised to learn that there are currencies that outperform the trio.

FXOpen has compiled a list of the world's top-20 currencies in the world as of 2022. Learn which is number one, and which are stronger than USD, EUR, and GBP despite the latters’ title of the most famous, most traded, and most widely spread currencies of the world.

Trading currencies involves simultaneously buying one currency and selling another, which is known as currency comparison. In the following list, all currencies are quoted against one US dollar.
