In my opinion political event also can giving impact to currency, as investor I think also they will investing funds on country that has security and not in war, sometime hot political event on certain country also will highlighted among investor and I think will worried if invest in country that not safe
By events I admit I mean all fundamental influences from NFPR to a lasting high oil price to a generous dividend policy to arrest of a Finance Director for fraud. Of course some have a longer lasting and deeper effect than others. But FA governs.
As for media commentary, the only people who think that's relevant are journalists.
