Myanmar Currency to PoundBurma Currency to Pound
Dollar weakening against Pound, Euros
Myanmar' s yat remained stable against the US currency last weekend and traded between 1354 and 1369. By the end of the 10th, the value of $1 was K1,363, roughly the lowest value for Myanmar's currency. As the US currency has gained against Kyoto and other developing countries' currency pairs, the US currency is likely to streamline its fiscal policies by reducing the Quantitative Easing (QE) program.
During QE, the Federal Reserve bought large volumes of sovereign securities from corporate banking, leading to low interest and higher borrowing requirements. Since last year, when unemployment and rate hikes began, the Fed has progressively increased interest rate levels to normalize fiscal policies. Consequently, the US dollar has appreciated against most major currency pairs, as well as Kyoto.
And the other explanation for the strengthening US currency is the anticipation of US fiscal reform, led by President Donald Trump. From the middle of September to the end of last weekend, the US Dollars Index rose by around 3 per cent, supported by the hope of these lower taxes. However, things have been changing in recent months, which has led to a situation in which the currency of the newly industrialising countries could strengthen against the US Dollar.
Consequently, the U.S. Dollars index tracking the U.S. Dollars against six major currencies was down 0. 09pc at-94. It slowed the currency's recovery since September when the markets ended on November 10. In the meantime, other key players have also started to streamline fiscal policies, which will strengthen other currency against the US dollar.
For the first in more than 10 years, the Bank of England increased interest levels this mont. Both the pound shut last week on tighter grounds and climbed 0. 0pc against the U.S. Dollar to $1. 32 on better-than-expected dates on U.K. manufacturing and increasing reliance in the advance of Brexit Conversations bolstered the currency.
More robust figures from the EURUSD zone could also indicate an appreciation of the EUR against the US Dollars, with the Bank of Singapore aiming for a possible EURUSD movement to 1.24 in a year. Both the Pound Sterling and the EUR may receive further impetus this weekend as a number of indicators are expected for the area.
The EU will publish GDP for the third trimester on 14 November, with an estimated 2.5% increase in GDP compared to the same month last year. Japonica also announces 3Q GDP figures on the same date when the Economy expects to post annual GDP of 1. 36pc year-on-year (yoy).
Forecasts for the US are for October yoy rate of 1. 07pc on November 15, which is still below the Fed's rate of return goal of 24pc. For the same timeframe, the EU will provide prices one full working days later, with a 1.4% rate of annual growth for the same months below the European Central Bank's 2% objective.
