What makes the FTSE move



What is making the FTSE move on a intraday basis. Can someone provide a more detailed answer as opposed to directing me to the 100 companies. I am looking for answers around earing reports and how often they are released and other relevant information

FTSE 100

 Axel Rudolph FSTA | Senior Financial Analyst, London | Publication date: Friday 13 January 2023 

FTSE 100 now 1% away from all-time high

The FTSE 100 is now trading above 7,800, only 1% away from its all-time record high, as Thursday’s US inflation data gave another reason to buy risk.

In view is the May 2018 all-time high at 7,903, followed by the psychological 8,000 mark.

UK GDP slid by 0.3% for the three months to December, a slight improvement on the 0.4% drop for the three months to November. The British economy expanded 0.1% month-on-month in November, easing from a 0.5% growth in the previous period and beating market expectations of a 0.2% decline.

Slips may find support between the January and August 2018 highs at 7,791 to 7,796 as well as along the accelerated January support line at 7,785 and at Wednesday’s 7,773 high.

    • What is Foreign Exchange? Foreign exchange (Forex or FX) is the conversion of one currency into another at a specific rate known as the foreign exchange rate. The conversion rates for almost all currencies are constantly floating as they are driven by the market forces of supply and demand. The most traded currencies in the world are the United States dollar, Euro, Japanese yen, British pound, and Australian dollar. The US dollar remains the key currency, accounting for more than 87% of total daily value traded.Factors that Affect Foreign Exchange Rates Many factors can potentially influence the market forces behind foreign exchange rates. The factors include various economic, political, and even psychological conditions. The economic factors include a government’s economic policies, trade balances, inflation, and economic growth outlook. Political conditions also exert a significant impact on the forex rate, as events such as political instability and political conflicts may negatively affect the strength of a currency. The psychology of forex market participants can also influence exchange rates. The Foreign Exchange Market The foreign exchange market is a decentralized and over-the-counter market where all currency exchange trades occur. It is the largest (in terms of trading volume) and the most liquid market in the world. On average, the daily volume of transactions on the forex market totals $5.1 trillion, according to the Bank of International Settlements’ Triennial Central Bank Survey (2016). The forex market major trading centers are located in major financial hubs around the world, including New York, London, Frankfurt, Tokyo, Hong Kong, and Sydney. Due to this reason, foreign exchange transactions are executed 24 hours, five days a week (except weekends). Despite the decentralized nature of forex markets, the exchange rates offered in the market are the same among its participants, as arbitrage opportunities can arise otherwise. The foreign exchange market is probably one of the most accessible financial markets. Market participants range from tourists and amateur traders to large financial institutions (including central banks) and multinational corporations. Also, the forex market does not only involve a simple conversion of one currency into another. Many large transactions in the market involve the application of a wide variety of financial instruments, including forwards, swaps, options, etc. Foreign currency exchange (forex) A foreign currency exchange rate is a price that represents how much it costs to buy the currency of one country using the currency of another country. Currency traders buy and sell currencies through forex transactions based on how they expect currency exchange rates will fluctuate. When the value of one currency rises relative to another, traders will earn profits if they purchased the appreciating currency, or suffer losses if they sold the appreciating currency.  
    • Totally agree, the growth of Bitget Wallet will have a positive impact on $BWB. The potential for both seems exciting. Good luck to you too, and hopefully everyone can benefit from these earning opportunities.
    • Sounds like Mystiko Network is making some serious waves in the interoperability space. Seamless compatibility across multiple blockchains is a game changer, especially with the ZK SDK for secure and private dApps. Big backing from Samsung and Coinlist adds credibility too. I will keep an eye on that Bitget listing, it could be a major boost for $XZK
