September Month-End Model Favors Slight USD Strength

Updated -  Sep 29, 2014 8:30:00 AM


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


GBPUSD: Bearish Flag Breakdown Could Expose 10-Month Lows Near 1.60

Updated -  Sep 25, 2014 8:40:00 AM


Over a century ago, Charles Dow codified one of the first technical analysis frameworks, which eventually came to be known as Dow Theory. One of the basic tenets of the theory is that the market immediately discounts all new information as soon as it is released, a premise that Dow’s theory shares with the influential Efficient Market Hypothesis (EMH). In other words, the market is forward looking. Without getting into a philosophical debate about the  [...] Continue Reading


Scotland votes No, what now?

Updated -  Sep 19, 2014 2:30:00 AM


In the end, the referendum result ended up being a bigger win for the No camp than the late polls had predicted. The Yes campaign had gathered momentum in the last two weeks, but it burnt itself out by polling day. The final outcome was 55% for the No camp to 45% to the Yes camp. Sterling has had a good night and UK equity futures point to a 1% increase when European markets open.  [...] Continue Reading


Polls are closed! The No camp may have the edge in the Scottish independence race

Updated -  Sep 18, 2014 6:31:24 PM


The polling stations in Scotland closed at 2200BST and there appears to have been a massive turnout. Reports coming from the North suggest that 90% of voters turned up, with 97% of the Scottish electorate registered to vote. This could be good for either side. The No camp is banking on it negating the SNP’s ground campaign and it may mean some “shy No’s”, if there are any, cast their votes. On the side  [...] Continue Reading


Scotland: is GBP too eager to price in a No victory?

Updated -  Sep 18, 2014 12:20:00 PM


The pound has climbed to a 2 week high and with only a few hours of voting for the Scottish referendum left the market seems happy to price in a victory for the No camp. We should find out in the early hours whether or not the market is right to be so optimistic at this early stage. Two things have boosted expectations, firstly the last poll before the vote that showed the No camp  [...] Continue Reading


GBPUSD: can the recovery continue?

Updated -  Sep 17, 2014 11:22:00 AM


The next 48 hours could provide some potentially explosive events for this pair. First up, we get the FOMC meeting later today (check out our preview HERE) then we get the Scottish referendum result, which we are expecting at approx. 0700 BST on Friday morning. Is a sterling crisis waiting in the wings? Looking at the referendum first, a yes vote could trigger a decline back to 1.50 in this pair, while  [...] Continue Reading

GBPUSD: Mind the Gap

Updated -  Sep 11, 2014 8:30:00 AM


The pound is among a handful of assets defying the strength of the dollar with GBP/USD climbing higher for a third day. But will the rally lose steam here or are there more gains to come? From a fundamental point of view, it depends largely on these major events/themes: the strength of the US dollar, the level of safe haven demand from European investors for the pound and the outcome of the Scottish independence referendum.  [...] Continue Reading


Scottish independence: GBP volatility ahoy!

Updated -  Sep 8, 2014 9:55:00 AM


The market is in panic mode at the start of a fresh week after the latest poll ahead of the Scottish referendum put the yes campaign (who wants independence) in the lead for the first time since the campaign began. Not even the announcement that another Royal baby is on the way could bury this news. After basically having it in the bag since the beginning, the no campaign has blown its comfortable lead; so  [...] Continue Reading


GBPUSD and the Scottish referendum

Updated -  Sep 2, 2014 8:40:00 AM


Currency traders woke up to a rather unsettling headline this morning – “Yougov poll finds rapid shift in favour of Scottish Independence”. For most of the campaign the FX market has shrugged off the risks of a win for the yes vote, as the no campaign had enjoyed a healthy lead; however, with just over three weeks to go until polling day the tide is starting to shift. While it is hard to pinpoint  [...] Continue Reading
