FTSE 100: Movers and shakers

Updated -  Sep 30, 2014 5:15:00 AM By Kathleen Brooks

The FTSE is little changed so far today, after a torrid start to the week. However, a move below 6,600 has proven to be elusive so far, and attempts to test this level on Friday and Monday were met with some small scale buying interest. This does not mean that a recovery is on the cards, just that the market may take a breather while we wait for key economic data this week, which could [...] Continue Reading

China roundup: it was a tough month for China

Updated -  Sep 30, 2014 1:52:46 AM By Chris Tedder

August was an eventful month for the world’s second largest economy as so-so economic data and a struggling property market prompted more easing from Beijing while protests in Hong Kong have sent investors flocking away from the renminbi. This has infected investor sentiment throughout Asia and especially in Asia’s major commodity currencies, and even promoted some major investment banks to downgrade their growth targets for China this year. In fact, it now looks increasing unlikely [...] Continue Reading

Mixed economic messages from Japan

Updated -  Sep 29, 2014 8:48:51 PM By Chris Tedder

There has been a slew of economic data released from Japan this morning that sent the market some mixed signals. As a result USDJPY has been a little jumpy in early Asia trade, yet the pair seems to have stabilized around 109.40 for the time being, with investors also keeping a close eye on the protests in Hong Kong. Japan’s miraculous jobless rate Japan’s jobless rate unexpectedly dropped to 3.5% in August (the market [...] Continue Reading

EM Rundown: Fragile Five Revived?

Updated -  Sep 29, 2014 2:55:00 PM By Matt Weller, CMT

Back in late January of this year, the so-called “Fragile Five” emerging markets (Brazil, Turkey, South Africa, India, and Indonesia) came under fire as traders sold their currencies in a mini-EM contagion. These currencies were specifically hard hit due to their current account deficits, which leaves them dependent upon foreign investment to fund their economies. Thankfully, bold actions by the Central Bank of the Republic of Turkey (CBRT) and South African Central Bank (SARB) were [...] Continue Reading

Crude oil’s bearish trend weakening

Updated -  Sep 29, 2014 12:25:00 PM By Fawad Razaqzada

The price of Brent oil is little-changed today after dropping to its lowest level since June 2012 last week. Once again investors are by and large ignoring the prospects of supply disruptions in the Middle East amid the US-led bombings of IS targets in the region. Likewise they seem little concerned about the fact oil production in Libya has fallen slightly: according to the National Oil Corp (NOC), the country's crude output has fallen by [...] Continue Reading

September Month-End Model Favors Slight USD Strength

Updated -  Sep 29, 2014 8:30:00 AM By Matt Weller, CMT

Background: Traders often discuss how ‘month end’ flows may impact a currency or a currency pair during the last few day(s) of the month. These flows are caused by global portfolio managers rebalancing their existing currency hedges. If the value of one country’s equity and bond markets increases, these money managers typically look to sell or hedge their elevated risk in that country’s currency and rebalance their exposure back to an underperforming country’s currency. The [...] Continue Reading

Head, Shoulders, DAX has topped?

Updated -  Sep 29, 2014 7:40:00 AM By Fawad Razaqzada

European stocks are trading lower on this first day of the week, with some of the major indices such as the German DAX already below their lows from last week which in itself was a bad week for equities. Sentiment is downbeat for a variety of reasons, not least due to the growing unrest in Hong Kong and the on-going bombardments of IS targets in the Middle East. On top of this, the US Federal [...] Continue Reading

USDJPY: could Hong Kong protests dent the uptrend?

Updated -  Sep 29, 2014 6:10:00 AM By Kathleen Brooks

This pair broke key resistance during the Asian session rising to a high of 109.75 – the highest level since September 2008. The break above 109.49 – the recent high – was significant, and opens the way to test 110.67 – the high from August 2008. Prime Minister Abe helped to give USDJPY a boost earlier, after announcing a strategy for his key economic reforms; this includes a review of the crippling seniority-based pay [...] Continue Reading

The RBNZ intervention rumours were true

Updated -  Sep 29, 2014 1:22:51 AM By Chris Tedder

The Reserve Bank of New Zealand (RBNZ) sold net 521 million NZDs in the FX market last month, confirming the market’s suspicions that the bank intervened to weaken the kiwi. The RBNZ has been very clear about its distain for the seemingly overvalued commodity currency, with the bank continuously stating that the level of the NZD is unjustified and unsustainable. This rhetoric intensified last Thursday in a speech that caused the NZD to fall [...] Continue Reading

Another bad start to the week for AUDUSD

Updated -  Sep 28, 2014 9:35:14 PM By Chris Tedder

It has been a horrendous month for AUDUSD with the pair falling around 6.4% since the beginning of September, making the aussie the worst performing currency against the USD over this period. For many analysts and the RBA, the recent sell-off of the Australian dollar seemed inevitable. Falling commodity prices, a slowing Chinese economy, and the loosest monetary policy in the history of the RBA are all weighing on the commodity currency. Yet, the biggest [...] Continue Reading
