Fundamental Analysis Considerations
Currency exchange rates can be floating, in which case they change continually based on a multitude of factors, or they can be pegged (or fixed) to another currency, in which case they still float, but they move in tandem with the currency to which they are pegged. Fundamental Analysis involves analyzing the economic, social, and political forces that may affect the supply and demand of the asset we are trading. Our Trading Plan involves currency pairs, thus we are interested in the factors affecting currencies.
We are interested in the factors causing:
1. Volatile market conditions 2. Appreciation/Depreciation of the currency to high degrees causing trends. 3. The degree of severity and impact of a factor.
High demand for a currency or a shortage in its supply will cause an increase in price and vise versa.
