The dollar is king for May, but can it last?

Updated -  May 29, 2015 9:40:00 AM By Kathleen Brooks

As we end May in a rather rainy and blustery fashion here in London, the dollar is having a bad end to the trading month. The latest economic data hasn’t helped things; the US economy shrank 0.7% in the first quarter. Although this was less than the -0.9% decline expected, it suggests that the US economy is still under the first-quarter weather-related curse that we saw last year. The immediate rush to safe havens [...] Continue Reading


May Month-End Model Hints at Dollar Weakness Heading into the Weekend

Updated -  May 29, 2015 7:25:00 AM By Matt Weller, CMT

Background: Traders often refer the impact of ‘month end flows’ on different currency pairs during the last few days of the month. In essence, these money ‘flows’ are caused by global fund managers and investors rebalancing their currency exposure based on market movements over the last month. For example, if the value of one country’s equity and bond markets increases, these fund managers typically look to sell or hedge their now-elevated exposure to that country’s [...] Continue Reading


DAX: Greece deal hopes, bullish trend still intact

Updated -  May 29, 2015 7:10:00 AM By Fawad Razaqzada

European stocks opened the day deep in the red mainly due to the on-going uncertainty over Greece and the Chinese stock market turmoil, before bouncing off their worst levels as we approached mid-day. Yesterday, the IMF chief Lagarde had admitted that Greece exiting from euro zone was ‘a potential’, and that “It’s very unlikely that we will reach a comprehensive solution in the next few days.” There are serious question marks over Athens’ ability to [...] Continue Reading


NZDJPY is wounded and falling

Updated -  May 28, 2015 11:06:53 PM By Chris Tedder

Earlier in the Asia session Japan released its consumer price numbers for April. The data printed slightly above expectations, with core-CPI rising 0.3% y/y and core-core-CPI jumping 0.4% y/y (expected 0.3%) last month, slightly better than the prior month’s figures which showed adjusted increases of 0.2% and 0.1% respectively. Also, Japanese industrial production jumped 1.0% in April, after falling 0.8% in the prior month. However, these numbers aren’t game changing enough to materially impact the [...] Continue Reading


Crude stocks drop for 4th week

Updated -  May 28, 2015 1:50:00 PM By Fawad Razaqzada

WTI crude oil managed to bounce off its worst levels following the publication of the latest crude stockpiles report from the US Energy Information Admiration (EIA), but remained in the red and was on course to end lower for a fifth day. Prior to the release of the EIA report, traders were evidently expecting to see a “bad” number because the American Petroleum Institute’s (API) data last night had indicated that inventories had climbed by [...] Continue Reading


Gold Holding Make-or-Break Level at 1180…So Far

Updated -  May 28, 2015 1:40:00 PM By Matt Weller, CMT

Commodity bulls have had a rough couple of weeks across the board, with the broad CRB commodity index falling over 5% from the mid-May peak. The weakness has been widespread, with everything from industrial metals to agricultural commodities to oil all falling in tandem (see my colleague Fawad Razaqzada’s note from earlier today for more on oil). Though it’s also fallen with its commodity brothers, gold remains broadly rangebound around the 1200 level. Last week, [...] Continue Reading


Stocks: why the FTSE 100 could be a lead indicator

Updated -  May 28, 2015 10:10:00 AM By Kathleen Brooks

There has been much market speculation of late that the global stock market rally could be running out of steam and stocks may be about to head lower. In fairness, stocks have had a fantastic run; the S&P has been in an uptrend since 2009 and has made record highs. Likewise, the Dax and the FTSE 100 have also reached fresh record territory in recent months, so is it time the markets turned lower?  [...] Continue Reading


NZDUSD Drops to a New 4-Year Low…Look Out Below?

Updated -  May 28, 2015 9:25:00 AM By Matt Weller, CMT

The return of the “Best House in a Bad Neighborhood” trade has seen the dollar rally strongly over the last three weeks, with the trade-weighted dollar index breaking back above its 50-day MA near 97.00 earlier this week. However, one of the strongest moves toward strength in the greenback has been seen in against the New Zealand dollar, which isn’t even a part in the dollar index. Since peaking at .7750 in mid-April, NZDUSD has [...] Continue Reading


USD/JPY: a warning or two for bulls

Updated -  May 28, 2015 7:00:00 AM By Fawad Razaqzada

The USD/JPY currency pair may go on to rise to significantly higher levels over time because of the growing disparity between interest rates in the US and Japan. But in the immediate near term, the risks for a potential correction are high given the extent of the recent upsurge. Traders may simply choose to book some profit now following a 5-day rally. This, combined with the potential withdrawal of bids near key resistance levels, may [...] Continue Reading


GBPCAD: Double Top Danger

Updated -  May 27, 2015 2:16:42 PM By Neal Gilbert

Since the conclusion of the election in the UK a couple weeks ago that was anticipated to be a political mess but ended up being a resounding victory for the conservative Tories, the GBP has been on a roll. Coupled with the negative economic results in the US, investors were flocking to the Pound Sterling as the gem of the currency world as the pre-selling before the election got a little ahead of itself. However, [...] Continue Reading
