The UK labour market has shown its mettle yet again, after cooling off a little in recent months, the UK is once again creating jobs at a rapid clip. Comparing the three months to February with the previous three months, the number of employed people increased by 239k, the number of unemployed people fell by 77,000 and the number of adults not in the labour force fell by 86,000.

CPI plays second fiddle to wage data

Updated -  Apr 15, 2014 5:55:00 AM

Consumer prices for March fell back to 1.6% from 1.7%, as the market expected, which is the lowest level of price growth since 2009. The key driver of weaker prices was motor fuel. If you felt that you left the forecourt with a slightly heavier wallet than you expected, you weren’t imaging things – petrol prices remained unchanged between February and March this year, which compares with a 2.2p per litre increase a year ago.  [...] Continue Reading

GBP/USD: Technical Signs Point to Near-Term Weakness

Updated -  Apr 14, 2014 8:35:00 AM

The GBP/USD is coming off a very interesting week to kick off April. Helped along by decent Manufacturing Production data and a stationary BOE, the pair surged up to test its 4.5-year high at 1.6820 on Thursday before losing steam and turning back lower on Friday. Though the longer-term trend remains to the topside, there are some technical signs that Friday’s selling pressure may carry over into this week’s trade. Looking to the daily  [...] Continue Reading

EURUSD & GBPUSD achieved ATR targets…Be wary of potential false breaks

Updated -  Apr 8, 2014 2:20:00 PM

In last Monday’s LIVE TRADING SESSION we discussed ways to potentially navigate the current trading environment and one of the topics which arose was the European Opening range/breakout strategy. As many of you know, this is one of my favorite strategies and while it will typically focus on EURUSD, it could be applied to any of the European majors. For those of you unfamiliar with this strategy, here’s the basics: Ideally,  [...] Continue Reading

EUR/GBP: Calling the ECB’s Bluff?

Updated -  Apr 2, 2014 11:44:37 AM

North American markets are in standby mode this morning as investors seem to be waiting for the end of the week and are enthralled by the discussion about High Frequency Trading that continues on for a third trading day in a row.  Despite Michael Lewis’ assertion that “the market is rigged” equities continue to rise across the globe, but risk currencies don’t seem to have the same fervor.  The AUD, NZD, EUR, GBP, and  [...] Continue Reading

Little USD impact anticipated based on March & Q1-End rebalancing flows

Updated -  Mar 27, 2014 10:00:00 AM

Often you may hear about ‘month end’ flows having a positive or negative effect on a currency during the last few day(s) of the month. Thus, we’ve decided to take a look at asset market capitalizations in the major market economies to help us try to determine which direction these ‘flows’  may move. Typically, the largest impact is seen heading into the 11am ET fix (often in the hour from 10 & 11am ET) as  [...] Continue Reading

Opening range suggests key US & UK economic data this week may whipsaw GBPUSD

Updated -  Mar 26, 2014 6:00:00 PM

Let’s face it, the whole purpose of doing any form of analysis, whether that is technical, fundamental or statistical, is to try to identify higher probability trading opportunities. As many of you know, one of my favorite strategies is the utilization of a European opening range and while it will typically focus on EURUSD it can be applied to any of the European majors. Earlier today we highlighted a potential GBPUSD scenario on Twitter  [...] Continue Reading

Yellen vs. Carney and the impact on GBPUSD

Updated -  Mar 20, 2014 7:30:00 AM

Janet Yellen’s first press conference as Fed governor on Wednesday caused a stir in the markets, which has lasted into Thursday. Yellen suggested that there may be a shorter period of time between ending tapering and starting to hike rates, which triggered a sharp sell-off in risky assets, the dollar surged and Treasury yields also jumped more than 10 basis points. This was reminiscent of the market swoon post Bernanke’s comments in June last  [...] Continue Reading

Updated -  Mar 19, 2014 4:36:41 PM

North American markets were waiting on pins and needles for a majority of the trading day for the first Federal Open Market Committee meeting with Janet Yellen as the Chair, and she didn’t disappoint.  From the statement we learned that the Quantitative Easing program was tapered another $10B, interest rates remained steady, weather is a growth slowing factor, 6.5% unemployment is no longer an interest rate rising target, Narayana Kocherlakota dissented as he feared their  [...] Continue Reading
