GBP/USD: Heading (and shouldering) lower if 1.5175 breaks?

Updated -  Sep 24, 2015 9:05:00 AM

After initially falling on last week’s seemingly-dovish Federal Reserve statement and press conference, the US dollar has been edging higher in mixed trade so far this week and based on this morning’s US economic data, the dollar could be poised for further gains today. To kick things off, the weekly initial jobless claims report came out roughly in-line with expectations at 267k, remaining at a historically low level and showing that the labor market remains  [...] Continue Reading

GBP/USD could be in for a BIG move as FOMC waiting finally over

Updated -  Sep 17, 2015 7:10:00 AM

The waiting if finally over! Or is it? This evening we will find out whether the Fed will increase interest rates for the first time since 2006, and what guidance it will provide for the future of US economic activity and monetary policy. As the situation is quite uncertain, traders are unlikely to build bold positions leading up to the meeting. Whatever the outcome, we should see a knee-jerk reaction because some people will be  [...] Continue Reading

GBP/USD rally fizzles as UK inflation falls to zero

Updated -  Sep 15, 2015 7:10:00 AM

The latest inflation data from the UK shows there is virtually no pressure on the Bank of England to raise interest rates and this could be bad news for sterling which may get pounded if the US Federal Reserve delivers a hawkish message on Thursday. But there will be plenty of other macro data from both the UK and US economies that will impact the Cable ahead of the conclusion of the FOMC meeting, so  [...] 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 extends fall as UK services growth disappoints

Updated -  Sep 3, 2015 7:20:00 AM

The pound has extended its falls, hitting its lowest level against the US dollar since early June, after growth in the UK services sector unexpectedly moved down a notch in August, according to the closely-watched purchasing managers' index (PMI) by Markit. Although activity in the UK’s dominant sector rose as the PMI was above 50, the 55.6 reading was lower than July’s 57.4 and below analyst expectations of 57.6. The PMIs for the manufacturing and  [...] 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

GBP/USD: Bears’ turn for a day in the sun

Updated -  Aug 26, 2015 8:50:00 AM

Amidst the rollercoaster ride that unexpected seized most global markets over the last few days, trade in GBP/USD has remained relatively sanguine. Cable rallied “just” 80 pips on Monday, while the dollar lost far more value against the euro and yen, before reversing that move on Tuesday to trade back at the 1.5700 level. As of writing, it looks like GBP/USD is finally ready for its day in the sun, and so far, the sun  [...] Continue Reading

GBP/USD: finally breaking out of consolidation?

Updated -  Aug 12, 2015 11:30:00 AM

What a day has it been in the financial markets! Stocks and the dollar have fallen viciously as traders respond to news of the Chinese currency devaluation by piling in on safe haven assets. The Swiss franc, Japanese yen and gold have all found some solid support. One particular FX pair that has caught my attention has been the GBP/USD, which has gained ground despite some weaker-than-expected UK economic data today which showed among  [...] Continue Reading

GBP/USD looks poised for breakout as traders eye NFP

Updated -  Aug 7, 2015 7:30:00 AM

The eagerly-awaited US jobs report will be released shortly, at 13:30 BST. The consensus expectations call for a reading of 225,000, which would still be a decent number given the fact that some of the leading indicators for the employment report have been disappointing, namely the ADP non-farm employment change, which came out at 185,000, and the ISM manufacturing PMI employment sub-index, which fell to 52.7 from 55.5 previously. However the employment subcomponent of the  [...] Continue Reading
