FX-MM’s monthly look at the economic issues affecting sentiment in global markets and their implications for the major currencies.
The global economic crisis has affected countries differently, but the impact on growth has generally been the same – i.e. broadly negative. The inter-dependency between economies has never been stronger than it is today and the resultant currency fluctuations that we are seeing are an additional hurdle that some countries are struggling to overcome in order to get their economies back on track. With few other options available, central banks are using quantitative easing, low interest rates and other forms of intervention to support governments which have little choice but to cut spending, thereby potentially slowing their economic growth further.
UK takes aggressive approach to reducing its national debt: The UK, for example, has been focusing heavily on reducing its national debt over the last two years. The government’s efforts towards this objective have had such an impact on the economy that growth, according to FSA chief Lord Turner, could be impacted for years to come. The Bank of England has had very little room for manoeuvre and has engaged in further stimulus, but the effectiveness of this strategy is now being called into question.

The focus of attention is currently Spain. Behind the scenes, EU authorities are hard at work helping Madrid to craft a comprehensive economic reform programme. The idea is to pave the way for a rescue plan, with the ECB buying unlimited quantities of the country’s bonds. The problem is that while Spain clearly needs help, and looks unlikely to be able to get by without it, Mariano Rajoy has still not signalled that he intends to make such a request. There is considerable concern in Spain about the terms and conditions which are likely to be attached to any possible bailout, but there does seem to be a certain inevitability that Spain will be making a bailout announcement soon.
The ECB has finally unveiled plans to buy bonds from the most heavily indebted eurozone countries in order for them to access the financial markets at sustainable rates. It is effectively a ‘backstop’ according to ECB President Mario Draghi. High borrowing costs are playing a large part in preventing struggling economies from getting back on the road to recovery – lenders want to see austerity measures implemented, and working, before they lend cash to struggling countries, but the bigger the spending cuts the higher the negative impact on growth.
