GBP/USD shows signs of life

Updated -  Aug 22, 2016 8:03:40 AM

The GBP/USD ended higher last week on the back of surprisingly stronger-than-expected UK economic data and as the dollar eased along with expectations about an imminent rate hike in the US. But the Cable did sell off heavily on Friday, which took some shine off the week’s rally. Apparently, Friday’s weakness in sterling was due to speculation about the time when UK Prime Minister Theresa May will trigger the Article 50 exit clause to start  [...] Continue Reading

Brexit, what Brexit? UK data continues to confound expectations

Updated -  Aug 17, 2016 5:20:00 AM

After the surprisingly strong UK inflation figures on Tuesday, the jobs and wages data released today confounded expectations once again, albeit to a lesser degree. The average earnings index, which includes bonuses, rose 2.4% in the three months to June compared to the same period a year ago. The good news is that it was up from 2.3% in May, but it was slightly lower than 2.5% expected. The unemployment rate was unchanged during  [...] Continue Reading

Markets round up

Updated -  Aug 12, 2016 11:16:18 AM

Friday’s macro data from the world’s largest economies goes to show why the major central banks are still uber-dovish. China’s latest industrial production, retail sales and fixed asset investment figures all disappointed expectations overnight, capping a week full of disappointing data from the world’s largest economy that included weak trade figures on Monday. Data from the world’s largest economy, the US, has also been poor this week, causing the dollar to relinquish most of it  [...] Continue Reading

GBP/USD braces for BoE rate decision

Updated -  Aug 3, 2016 12:40:00 PM

Thursday brings the highly anticipated rate decision and monetary policy summary from the Bank of England (BoE), the second such decision from the central bank after the historic EU referendum in late June that resulted in the UK voting to leave the EU (Brexit). The first BoE policy meeting after Brexit, in mid-July, resulted in the committee opting for complete inaction, refraining from cutting interest rates and declining to implement any other stimulus measures for  [...] Continue Reading

Market Review & Outlook: Stimulus Talk Moves Markets

Updated -  Jul 15, 2016 1:30:00 PM

Stimulus Talk Moves Markets With central banks in renewed stimulus mode and market concerns over Brexit consequences having increasingly faded into the background, this past week has largely been one of expanded risk appetite for global financial markets. Stocks surged as yield-seeking investors bid up US equity markets to uncharted territory, with both the Dow Jones Industrial Average and S&P 500 reaching progressively higher all-time highs throughout the week. European stock markets also continued to  [...] Continue Reading

GBP/USD’s BoE-driven short-squeeze could soon reverse course

Updated -  Jul 14, 2016 2:40:00 PM

While the Bank of England (BoE) unexpectedly opted for inaction on Thursday, refraining from cutting interest rates and declining to implement other stimulus measures, the central bank did state that “most members of the committee expect monetary policy to be loosened in August.” Though this was far from a promise, the statement did serve to indicate that the BoE does indeed have intentions to ease policy at its next available opportunity. Immediately after the monetary  [...] Continue Reading

BoE day finally arrives!

Updated -  Jul 14, 2016 6:30:00 AM

So, the Bank of England day finally arrives and the rate decision is due in less than half an hour, but will it be a Super Thursday for once? It could be if you are on the right side of the potentially sharp move for the pound! For so long, policymakers at the BoE had to do very little after cutting interest rates to a record low 0.5% in March 2009. Since then, the UK  [...] Continue Reading

Immediately after last Friday’s stunning revelation of the UK’s vote in favor of a Brexit, markets responded generally in-line with prior projections. Sterling was expectedly hit the worst,  [...] Continue Reading

GBP/USD tumbles towards post-Brexit lows after Bank of England speech

Updated -  Jun 30, 2016 3:00:00 PM

Bank of England (BoE) Governor Mark Carney made a speech on Thursday indicating that the central bank is likely to cut interest rates within the coming months in reaction to last week’s Brexit outcome that saw the UK vote to leave the European Union. Carney stressed that while the results of the referendum have been made clear, the full implications of a Brexit on the UK’s economy have not yet. Carney spoke earlier in a  [...] Continue Reading

GBP/JPY remains heavily pressured after Brexit-driven plunge

Updated -  Jun 27, 2016 1:30:00 PM

It is of little surprise that sterling has been the hardest hit of all currencies, and indeed of all major financial markets, as a result of last week’s surprise UK vote to leave the European Union. The Brexit outcome prompted an immediate chain reaction of severe volatility in markets across the globe, with the British pound absorbing the brunt of the damage, as previously projected. Also as expected, safe haven assets have been strongly boosted  [...] Continue Reading
