Dovish BOE comments + decent US GDP = GBP/USD 1.50?

Updated -  Nov 24, 2015 8:45:00 AM

In an otherwise quiet day in the foreign exchange market, GBP/USD has seen a relatively big drop amidst dovish comments from BOE policymakers and decent US data. During this morning’s European session, BOE Chief Economist Andy Haldane posted an annual report with his views on the Bank of England’s website. In those comments, Haldane highlighted that the risks to growth and inflation were skewed to the downside and crucially, that the Bank of England  [...] Continue Reading

GBP/USD could turn volatile as investors eye UK, US CPI

Updated -  Nov 16, 2015 1:10:00 PM

Last week, the British pound was among the strongest of currencies in G10. The week before, it was one of the weakest. Clearly, speculators who had established short positions in GBP, especially against the USD, after that surprisingly dovish Bank of England Inflation Report, used the opportunity of a mostly US data-void week to book profit on their positions throughout last week. In addition, we had some stronger employment data from the UK last Wednesday  [...] Continue Reading

BOE’s “Super Thursday” lives up to its billing…for GBP bears

Updated -  Nov 5, 2015 8:40:00 AM

As my colleague Fawad Razaqzada noted earlier today, traders were waiting with bated breath for the Bank of England’s “Super Thursday” festivities to kick off the final rush of top-tier economic data ahead of the weekend. As it turns out, the event only lived up to its billing for bears, while bulls were left holding the bag. Predictably, the BOE left interest rates unchanged at 0.5% for the 80th consecutive month while also refraining from  [...] Continue Reading

GBP/AUD: Will Sterling shine on this Super Thursday?

Updated -  Nov 5, 2015 6:40:00 AM

Today is called Super Thursday. That’s because at noon, the Bank of England will make a decision, for the lack of a better word, on interest rates; release the minutes of its meeting and publish the quarterly inflation report. The BoE Governor Mark Carney will then hold a press conference 45 minutes later at 12:45 GMT. No one is expecting the Bank to change interest rates, so the Official Bank Rate will almost certainly remain  [...] Continue Reading

GBP/CHF could surge as SNB responds to ECB’s policy; UK GDP eyed

Updated -  Oct 26, 2015 2:00:00 PM

It has been a slow day in the FX markets today after last week’s ECB-inspired sell-off in the euro had raised volatility across many currency pairs. But one currency that has caught some attention today is the Swiss franc, which has been sold heavily in response to comments from the Swiss National Bank’s Vice President. In a Swiss newspaper on Sunday Mr Fritz Zurbruegg said that the SNB would be analysing the impact of the  [...] Continue Reading

GBP/CAD: Sterling pounded by a dovish BoE

Updated -  Oct 8, 2015 8:10:00 AM

The pound has relinquished its earlier sharp gains and turned lower across the board. The Bank of England’s somewhat downbeat assessment of the UK economy and its outlook on inflation has caused the market to think that a rate hike is not even in the radar for most of the Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) members, except Ian McCafferty of course. The BoE also sounded worried about the impact of the stronger pound on inflation as  [...] Continue Reading

EUR/GBP: Fed is not the only rodeo in town

Updated -  Sep 15, 2015 2:35:00 PM

While all traders are (justifiably) hyper-focused on the Federal Reserve’s highly-anticipated meeting, it’s worth noting that the Fed is not the only rodeo in town. Before that fateful Thursday afternoon, traders will get a raft of data out of both the UK and Eurozone. Beyond today’s shockingly weak Eurozone ZEW economic sentiment report (just 33.3, year-to-date low, vs. 42.1 expected), the market will also get a look at the final Eurozone consumer price index (CPI)  [...] Continue Reading

GBP/USD: ‘Super Thursday’ Shenanigans

Updated -  Sep 10, 2015 8:40:00 AM

The central-bank-induced, white-knuckle thrill ride reached its climax over the last 16 hours. Overnight, the RBNZ opted to cut interest rates to 2.75% as widely expected, and the central bank also cut its forecasts for growth and inflation, implying that another cut is possible later this year. While much of this dovishness was already priced in, NZD/USD is still hovering near its six-year low under the .6300 handle. Earlier this morning, the Bank of  [...] Continue Reading

GBP/USD bears get pound-ed

Updated -  Sep 8, 2015 8:45:00 AM

Here in the US, the just-concluded Labor Day holiday marks the unofficial end of summer, when traders return from their beach cabins and refocus on the markets. Historically, this period also marks the return of more volatile markets after the so-called “summer doldrums,” though if anything, many traders would actually prefer a respite from this year’s abnormally volatile August. One way or another though, sharp market moves are likely ahead of the Federal Reserve’s highly-anticipated  [...] Continue Reading

GBP/USD: The hits keep coming for shell shocked bulls

Updated -  Sep 1, 2015 8:40:00 AM

Not quite a week ago, we noted that it may finally be “bears’ turn for a day in the sun” on GBP/USD, noting that the disappointing rally last Monday, followed by the big Dark Cloud Cover* candlestick pattern was an ill omen for the unit. Since that peak, GBP/USD has put in five consecutive lower closes, breaking below the widely-watched 50-, 100- and now 200-day averages in short order. From a fundamental perspective, there  [...] Continue Reading
