FX Analysis and Technical Outlook

Updated -  Jan 4, 2016 11:30:00 AM

USD/JPY began the new year with a sharp slide as global equity indices plunged in reaction to weak Chinese manufacturing data that reignited fears of an ongoing economic slowdown in China. With the Shanghai Composite index closing down nearly 7%, and US and European stocks following suit with a selloff on Monday morning, investors initially rushed into the relative safety of the Japanese yen. This prompted the USD/JPY currency pair to plummet below the key  [...] Continue Reading

GBP/USD: Traders take a dark view of Black Friday sales

Updated -  Dec 17, 2015 8:45:00 AM

Despite some permabears’ fears, the sun did indeed rise this morning and the world most certainly didn’t end after the first interest rate hike from the Federal Reserve in nearly a decade. As we noted in our instant analysis, the decision was far from the “dovish hike” that many traders had been expecting; for what it’s worth, the median FOMC policymaker still anticipates increasing interest rates four times, or at every other meeting next year,  [...] Continue Reading

GBP/USD: Renewed downside pressure ahead of Fed Wednesday

Updated -  Dec 14, 2015 11:30:00 AM

Last week’s GBP/USD rise was largely the result of a broad pullback for the US dollar, which saw substantial profit-taking after having shown persistent strength recently ahead of an expected rate hike by the US Federal Reserve this week. This rise for GBP/USD last week occurred in spite of several news and data economic events that should normally have weighed rather heavily on the British pound. Soft manufacturing production and trade balance readings out of  [...] Continue Reading

US dollar remains on shaky footing ahead of pivotal Fed meeting

Updated -  Dec 11, 2015 10:30:00 AM

The US dollar remained on shaky footing Friday as the markets awaited next week’s long-anticipated Federal Reserve meeting, when a decision will be announced as to whether or not the Fed will raise rates this year for the first time in nearly ten years. This week saw the greenback largely mixed as it pulled back significantly against several major currencies, most notably the Japanese yen, while strengthening against commodity currencies like the Canadian dollar and  [...] Continue Reading

GBP/USD continues bearish step-down pattern

Updated -  Dec 7, 2015 4:30:00 PM

GBP/USD continues to trade within a bearish step-down pattern, as it has formed a series of progressively lower lows and lower highs for much of the latter half of this year thus far, since the 1.5900-area high back in mid-June. Since that 2015 high, the currency pair has fallen steadily as firming expectations of a US interest rate hike this year have far overshadowed vague anticipation of a possible UK rate hike at some indistinct  [...] Continue Reading

GBP/USD bounce stalls out, now testing 1.50 after strong ADP data

Updated -  Dec 2, 2015 8:50:00 AM

After the slow click-click-click of suspense-building economic data early in the week, the rollercoaster ride has started in earnest for traders. Overnight, traders got their first look at Australian Q3 GDP data, which came out better-than-expected at 0.9% q/q and we also got a small positive revision to last month’s report. Unfortunately, the positive vibes did not carry over into today’s European session. UK Construction PMI came out at just 55.3, well below the 58.4  [...] Continue Reading

November recap: USD reigns, but upstart Aussie takes the cake

Updated -  Dec 1, 2015 8:20:00 AM

For anyone trading FX through the month of November, the most obvious theme was the resurgence of the US dollar bullish trend. This move was driven almost exclusively by increasing expectations that the Federal Reserve would raise interest rates at its upcoming December meeting, and throughout the month, economic data continually reinforced this view. The dollar’s explosive November started out with the blowout October NFP report, which showed 271k new jobs created, carried through  [...] Continue Reading

Dovish BOE comments + decent US GDP = GBP/USD 1.50?

Updated -  Nov 24, 2015 8:45:00 AM

In an otherwise quiet day in the foreign exchange market, GBP/USD has seen a relatively big drop amidst dovish comments from BOE policymakers and decent US data. During this morning’s European session, BOE Chief Economist Andy Haldane posted an annual report with his views on the Bank of England’s website. In those comments, Haldane highlighted that the risks to growth and inflation were skewed to the downside and crucially, that the Bank of England  [...] Continue Reading

GBP/USD: Low conviction dollar longs jump ship

Updated -  Nov 19, 2015 3:35:00 PM

It’s been a rough day for the US dollar, and the big drop in the greenback doesn’t stem from a clear bearish catalyst. This morning’s US economic data was fairly mixed, with initial jobless claims printing in-line with expectations at 271k, while the Philadelphia Fed Manufacturing index ticked back into positive territory at 1.9 (from -4.5 last month and 0.1 expected). The upcoming “Black Friday” holiday provides a perfect metaphor to help explain today’s  [...] Continue Reading

GBP/USD could turn volatile as investors eye UK, US CPI

Updated -  Nov 16, 2015 1:10:00 PM

Last week, the British pound was among the strongest of currencies in G10. The week before, it was one of the weakest. Clearly, speculators who had established short positions in GBP, especially against the USD, after that surprisingly dovish Bank of England Inflation Report, used the opportunity of a mostly US data-void week to book profit on their positions throughout last week. In addition, we had some stronger employment data from the UK last Wednesday  [...] Continue Reading
