Will This Week’s Data Take GBPUSD to a New 14-Month Low?

Updated  Nov 5, 2014 1:00:00 PM

The US elections are now behind us, and as widely anticipated, Republicans have solidified their lead in the House of Representatives and seized control of the Senate. For the next two years, the legislative branch of the government will be controlled by the Republican majority, whereas the executive branch (President) is Democratic. While the Republicans’ strong performance may lead to some progress on trade and energy policies among others, the gridlock that has ensnared Washington  [...] Continue Reading ...

UK update: US CPI could determine the pound’s next move

Updated  Jan 13, 2015 6:10:00 AM

If you think that the UK is in a deflationary spiral, then look to Greece to get a sense of what true deflation looks like. UK headline CPI fell to a mere 0.5% annual rate last month, half the rate that it was in November. When prices fall at this pace it is bad news, but the UK could be getting off lightly. In Greece prices are falling at a 2.6% annualised rate as the  [...] Continue Reading ...

UK employment data: a tiny something to get excited about

Updated  Nov 12, 2014 6:50:00 AM

Although wage growth (ex-bonuses) are a paltry 1.3%, inflation is falling at a fast enough rate for customers to finally break just about even. After years of high inflation and falling wages we could be at a sweet spot for the Bank of England. Falling CPI at the same time that wages are finally rising on the back of a tightening labour  [...] Continue Reading ...

UK Budget: a roar from the FTSE 100, a whimper from the pound

Updated  Mar 18, 2015 11:20:00 AM

The UK Budget was, as we had expected, mostly politically focused and only had a limited impact on UK markets. The biggest response was from the oil sector. UK Chancellor, George Osborne, announced new measures to boost investment in the North Sea oil sector, which has struggled with the declining oil price. Big UK oil companies have seen their share prices rise for the second day. BP’s share price is up nearly 2.5% so  [...] Continue Reading ...

TIMBER! GBPUSD Bears Chop through 1.4950 Support

Updated  Mar 12, 2015 3:00:00 PM

Today’s trading session started off on an optimistic note for pound bulls.

In addition the bullish technical setup, the pair was also getting some support from the fundamentals: the UK’s January trade balance came out better-than-expected at just a GBP 8.4B deficit, while US  [...] Continue Reading ...

NZDUSD: Two Potential Supports

Updated  Jan 13, 2015 10:51:34 AM

It has been a very interesting day so far in global markets despite there being a relative lack of major market moving data released.  The biggest news event has been UK CPI which declined to 0.5% and shoved the GBP/USD back below 1.51 briefly before bouncing.  Of course, most people can easily point to the fact that oil prices have fallen dramatically over the last few months and are contributing to the lack of inflation  [...] Continue Reading ...
