GBP: Looking back to May 6th 2010

Updated -  May 6, 2015 10:10:00 AM


With less than 24 hours to go before the 2015 UK election gets under way, the UK markets are fairly sanguine. The FTSE 100 has stabilised around the 50-day sma and GBPUSD looks comfortable above 1.5000, after the stunning service sector PMI for April surged to its highest level since August 2014. While the good economic news is reflected in the UK’s asset prices - Gilt yields have also risen to their highest level so  [...] Continue Reading


GBPUSD: Will Bulls or Bears Win this Week’s Election?

Updated -  May 4, 2015 3:10:00 PM


It’s finally election week in the UK, and unlike many elections, the winning party is far from a foregone conclusion. The latest polls show a tight race between the Conservative Party led by incumbent Prime Minister David Cameron, and the Labour Party, led by Ed Miliband, with neither party likely to secure an outright majority. As of writing, most forecasters are predicting a Conservative win by the smallest of margins, though this is far from  [...] Continue Reading

GBPUSD: The British (Elections) are Coming!

Updated -  Apr 30, 2015 5:05:07 PM


It was an odd day in North American trade that saw a variety of trading instruments perform daring feats of acrobatics as they jumped, fell, and sometimes did both before the day was through.  US equity markets were some of the most egregious offenders as the Dow was down over 200 points in late trade only to rally back up to finish down only 195, or around 1%. The S&P 500 didn’t fare much better  [...] Continue Reading


GBP/USD bounces back despite UK GDP miss

Updated -  Apr 28, 2015 6:35:00 AM


The GBP/USD fell sharply in the immediate aftermath of the UK GDP data, before bouncing back equally strongly to trade above the day’s earlier highs. The ONS reported that the UK economy grew only by 0.3% in the first quarter as opposed to 0.5% expected, held back by a 1.6% drop in construction output. Industrial output also fell slightly (-0.1%) while the key services sector expanded by half a per cent. On an annualised basis,  [...] Continue Reading


April Month-End Model Hints at Possible USD Selling

Updated -  Apr 27, 2015 9:00:00 AM


Background: Traders often refer the impact of ‘month end flows’ on different currency pairs during the last few days of the month. In essence, these money ‘flows’ are caused by global fund managers and investors rebalancing their currency exposure based on market movements over the last month. For example, if the value of one country’s equity and bond markets increases, these fund managers typically look to sell or hedge their now-elevated exposure to that country’s  [...] Continue Reading


GBPUSD Up 600 Pips in Two Weeks – Time for a Pause or 1.53+ Next?

Updated -  Apr 24, 2015 9:20:00 AM


GBPUSD is putting the finishing touches on a stellar week. After dipping to 1.4860 on Tuesday, the pair has been on an absolute tear, rising a full 300 pips to trade at 1.5155 as of writing. In fact, the pair has traded higher 9 of the last 10 days and is up an incredible 600 pips over that period. As we noted on Wednesday, the latest fundamental catalyst for the bulls was the release  [...] Continue Reading


NZDUSD: Could We See a Sprint for .8000 Heading into May?

Updated -  Apr 22, 2015 10:55:00 AM


The US dollar is easing back a smidge in early US session trade, driven primarily by buying pressure in GBPUSD in the wake of slightly more bullish BOE minutes. As we noted yesterday, the BOE’s current quandary is to weigh how much of the ongoing slowdown in inflation is driven by transitory factors vs. more stubborn, longer-term deflationary forces, and based on today’s minutes, the committee sees the former explanation as more plausible. While  [...] Continue Reading


GBPUSD: BOE Minutes Could Determine if 1.50 Ceiling Holds

Updated -  Apr 21, 2015 2:00:00 PM


Like most major currency pairs, GBPUSD has been essentially rangebound for the past six weeks. Over that period, we’ve seen our fair share of disappointing data from both countries, and neither currency has been able to rise above the economic mediocrity. On Friday, it seemed as if the pound was finally on the verge of a breakout above the key 1.50 level, but sellers stepped in late in the day to push the pair back  [...] Continue Reading
