British Recession and Gold Investment   Author: Ben Traynor   
Recent economic reports in Great Britain indicate the country is experiencing its first “double-dip” recession since the ‘70s, although the development was expected due to rising debt and falling GDP. The evolving economic climate could result in a Greek-style debt crisis or runaway inflation, and many are wondering how it will impact their investments. British gold investors in particular are curious as to how the recession will impact Sterling gold prices, and while many who invested early on in the crisis have enjoyed gains, the turning tide may be a sign that hedging against those bets may be a wise decision.

France Linchpin in Euro Success or Failure    Author: Martin Hutchinson   
While all eyes are on Spain to see whether its struggling economy will be the last straw for the euro, some experts believe the real danger lurking in the shadows is France. France is positioned in such a way that if it were to fail the whole of the Eurozone could not bail it out, and right now it’s debt-to-GDP ratio was at 85% at the close of 2011 - far worse than Spain’s at 66%. Moreover, Spain has been introducing a hard-hitting austerity program while France’s plan focuses only on tax increases rather than spending cuts. It’s possible the fate of the euro could be further focused to France’s election, as some speculate a radical shift in policy could damage prospects for stability.
Analysts Consider Fate of Euro   Author: BBH FX Strategy   
Where once it believed the euro was fated to an untimely demise due to a global financial meltdown followed by a regional debt crisis, it now appears the currency may struggle out of the mire to live another day thanks to large liquidity injections and a halting but noticeable U.S. economic recovery. The euro actually rose in the first quarter despite continued unease about the state of Greece and the potential problems still lurking in Ireland, Italy and Spain. Experts expect elections in Greece and France may cause further currency instability, but look to interest rate differentials between the U.S. and Germany and the correlation between the euro and the S&P 500 for signs of what the beleaguered currency may do next.
EMEA Currencies Respond to Trade Balance Data    Author: BBH FX Strategy   
The external trade balance reports for European, Middle Eastern and African countries indicates ups and downs for various currencies, with Hungary and Turkey looking to perform while South Africa and Poland are expected to slip. Experts believe the narrow trade deficit in Turkey is promising for currency there, but South Africa’s deficit did not narrow as much and will likely leave currency weak. Poland’s deficit has grown, which means currency will probably suffer in the short- and medium-term, but there is still hope for later improvement. Finally, although Hungary’s account surplus is shrinking, experts expect good performance on margin.
