Important movements in the trading market
Last week some forex markets experienced an overall average loss of about -0.61%. This loss experienced was a result of the following issues:
- Continuous Banking Crisis
The failure of the Signature Bank and Silicon Valley Bank in the USA these previous weeks has made banking shares weak and on rough paths. The week ended with major worry over Deutsche Bank, whose share price decreased by approximately 1/3 over the week.
- Increase in Fed Rate
The expected increase in the Federal Reserve rate by 0.25%. The Fed insinuated that this would be the last increase in the present tightening cycle; this leaves the present 5% rate as its terminal rate. The Fed is still showing concerns about inflation. And according to Powell, the banking crisis will not promote the odds of a gentle landing on the US economy.
- The rate increase by the SNB and BoE
As predicted, the Bank of England also increased its interest rate by 0.25%, and the Swiss National Bank increased theirs by 0.50%
