THE Fundamentals

I have started this thread because the fundamentals are the underlying forces that move major markets. They are particularly relevant to the forex market with their different currencies.
The 2 big events on the horizon at the moment are the US elections and the marked slow down of the Chinese economy. The latter is further complicated when the State has been known to massage the figures.
Brexit has now come to pass. It will take the coming months to see how it pans out. The poor appointment of a semi hinged person like Boris Johnson doesn't exactly help either. Business likes a steady progress, not wild swings.

Feel free to put your point of view of world events that may affect the markets.

Pat494 started this thread Tensions between India and Pakistan are near boiling point. A nuclear exchange there could have profound effects.

China is showing some muscle taking over disputed coral reefs in the China Sea for military bases. If it was for marine studies and weather etc. there wouldn't be such a fuss.

Russia is being accused of War Crimes in Syria and more sanctions are likely.

Perhaps the thread should be renamed to geopolitical events instead. The fundamentals are data releases which are the primary drivers. Geopolitical events definitely affect markets but more in context of risk on or risk off. Just a suggestion

To add to the thread, I have been keeping an eye on the bond bubble and what could cause a run for the doors scenario.

I'm disinclined to subscribe to the FT just to read one article - any alternatives that are free?

No I think how I access it is exposing a bug in their code. Try this, it's Google cached
