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

GBPUSD Damage from “Super Thursday” Limited…So Far

Updated -  Aug 6, 2015 9:45:00 AM

As my colleague Kathleen Brooks noted in her full recap report (see “BoE: Super Dovish Thursday” for more), the Bank of England came off as slightly more dovish than many market participants had expected in its highly-anticipated “Super Thursday” of top-tier data releases. Instead of the expected two dissents to the bank’s decision to leave interest rates unchanged, only Ian McCafferty voted for an immediate rate increase. Meanwhile, BOE Governor Carney came off as  [...] Continue Reading

BoE: Super Dovish Thursday

Updated -  Aug 6, 2015 9:30:00 AM

The big data drop from the Bank of England turned out not to be too difficult for the market to digest, after all: no change in rates, only one dissenter and a sharp reduction in the Bank’s inflation rate for this year. Overall, this was considered dovish by the market. Ahead of Super Thursday we had been looking for a slightly hawkish bias to these minutes, how wrong we were. Yet again the BoE has  [...] Continue Reading

Bank of England: Binge Watching the Bank's Next Move

Updated -  Aug 5, 2015 1:00:00 PM

Thursday 6th August is now being called Super Thursday, when the Bank of England will announce its latest interest rate decision, release the minutes of last week’s meeting and release the third Inflation Report of the year all at midday UK time. The bank actually decided on its interest rate decision last week, but the announcement was delayed to allow time for the minutes to be written up and released at the same time as  [...] Continue Reading

Can the Fed disrupt the GBPUSD rally?

Updated -  Jul 29, 2015 11:00:00 AM

Ahead of this evening’s FOMC meeting, the pound is the strongest performer in the G10 FX space. Sterling is still benefitting from the decent GDP figure released on Tuesday, which has triggered a 150 pip rally in two days, not bad for end of July markets. As we lead up to the FOMC meeting, GBPUSD is currently above the most recent peaks on 17th and 23rd July, and is at its highest level of  [...] Continue Reading

GBPUSD: Traders Take a Glass-Half-Full View of UK GDP

Updated -  Jul 28, 2015 8:25:00 AM

It’s been a generally quiet Tuesday in global markets, with the US dollar regaining some of yesterday’s lost ground, WTI edging higher after hitting a new 4-month low under 47.00, and gold marking time below 1100. The only economic data release of note was the UK’s preliminary GDP reading for Q2, which showed as-expected 0.7% growth quarter-over-quarter. While the headline GDP reading matched consensus, cable traders are taking a “glass half full” view of the  [...] Continue Reading

BOE = (B)reak (O)ut (E)vent for GBPUSD

Updated -  Jul 22, 2015 9:00:00 AM

With Australia’s highly-anticipated Q2 CPI report coming out broadly in-line with expectations at 0.7% q/q, traders honed in on the other major economic announcement of the last 24 hours, the minutes from the most recent Bank of England meeting. While the central bank voted unanimously to leave interest rates unchanged at 0.5%, there was a distinct hawkish shift within the bank’s monetary policy committee. According to the minutes, “For a number of members, the  [...] Continue Reading
