Investor Guide for April

Hello, comrades forex investors!

Finally, spring has come. In the first month of spring, financial markets were extremely sluggish. But the time has come to evaluate the results of this very limited March rally, the results of PAMM managers and comment on the main events that predetermined today's macroeconomic agenda. Where to invest in April? Read our digest.

PAMM-investing is a modern mechanism of trust investment, designed for investors and managing traders of Forex financial markets. The investor is given an exhaustive opportunity to study in detail the trading statistics of potential managers, and evaluate personal risk levels accordingly. This allows you to create both risky and conservative, and flexible investment portfolios.

In this review, we analyze the accounts of managing traders who somehow showed themselves in March from brokers such as Alpari, Instaforex, Roboforex and Forex4You, but first, a few words about the latest market events.

March News

For three months now, the growth rates of emerging markets have been growing, but by the end of March there was a slight slowdown. Interest in risky assets cools and emerging market currencies weaken. The policy of the US Federal Reserve, which raised the rate in the middle of the month, continues to depreciate and bull expectations for June fell below 60% - mainly due to Yellen’s bearish comments. The recovery and growth of the global economy today is very much dependent on trade, which Trump pushes to the next risks, which manifested itself even when the newly elected president withdrew the US participation in the Trans-Pacific Partnership.

Currencies like the New Zealand dollar, like most other commodity currencies, traded rather weakly for a month, and could not attract investors, even despite the weakening US dollar. In the US, the bullish trend of the dollar has been undermined by an unacceptable healthcare reform project, and investors are now focused on the prospects for planned tax reforms.

Official data on China's industrial activity index, meanwhile, may show a decline to 51.3 in March. And it seems that after a sharp increase in 2016, China has set a moderate slowdown in 2017, which could cool the housing market and halt infrastructure growth. This certainly opens up long-term bullish prospects for the renminbi.

Political uncertainty in Europe has largely depended on the EURCHF in recent times, reflecting very accurately the relationship between Euro-skeptic sentiment and the tendency to hedge risks through the franc. The European Central Bank may enter a tightening cycle of monetary policy due to a discrepancy with the United States on currency manipulation. Gold and other precious metals continue to maintain a reputation as a haven against inflation and economic downturns, attracting investors around the world. The gold market was very dynamic in March, reflecting low interest in risky currencies such as EUR, AUD and CAD.

In the euro area, inflation rates for March are still expected. But there are suggestions that it will drop to 1%. Consumer confidence remains high, while low unemployment supports consumption.

The risks of market correction are growing, and relatively weak support for risk sentiment portends a bearish trend for the single currency and another record highs in the European stock markets, respectively.

Conclusion

As you may have noticed, many managers managed to reconfigure themselves to current realities, while others were less fortunate. But the main thing for market participants today is to be strategically flexible and implement both conservative and aggressive approaches, which often justify themselves when the opportunity arises. While averagers very often do not have reliable escape routes, which makes them extremely vulnerable and helpless against the background of each unexpected drawdown. Let's hope that in April the managers will be able to maintain equilibrium and show us even better results!
