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

GBPUSD: Approaching the Ceiling…Again

Updated -  Apr 16, 2015 4:18:16 PM

What started out as a bit of a tug of war between USD bulls and bears in the morning session of North American trade, turned in to a mauling against the world’s reserve currency in the afternoon.  The USD is suffering against all of its currency brethren as a combination of uninspiring data points and mixed messages from Federal Reserve voters is giving investors fits.  All in all, it appears traders are anticipating the Fed  [...] Continue Reading

GBP/USD bears eye 1.45 as UK flirts with deflation

Updated -  Apr 14, 2015 6:45:00 AM

The headline rate of inflation in the UK last month remained at its lowest level since records began in 1989. The Office for National Statistics reported that the consumer price index (CPI) was at zero year-over-year in March, unchanged from February. Although this was widely expected, other measures of inflation were mostly weaker than anticipated, causing the pound to slide as speculators pushed their Bank of England rate hike expectations further out.  The core CPI,  [...] Continue Reading

5 key events that could drive markets:

Updated -  Apr 9, 2015 9:30:00 AM

This week may have looked like it passed relatively uneventfully after the Easter holiday; however there are some events that could have longer term repercussions for financial markets that are worth watching: The long-term ramifications of ultra-low yields include: excessive spending by governments leading to unsustainable debt loads and low investor returns on “safe” assets like European government debt, leading to more investment in high risk assets, possibly sowing the seeds of the next  [...] Continue Reading

GBPUSD: BOE a Dud, but Triangle Breakdown Still In Play

Updated -  Apr 9, 2015 9:25:00 AM

Heading into the penultimate day of the trading week, investors are still trying to digest yesterday’s confusing FOMC minutes, and the dollar is mixed as a result. Meanwhile, the British pound saw its own central bank “excitement” today with the conclusion of the Bank of England’s monthly monetary policy meeting. As expected, the central bank left interest rates unchanged at 0.5%, the same level that they’ve been pinned to since January 2009. The BOE  [...] Continue Reading

GBPUSD: Capped at 1.50?

Updated -  Apr 7, 2015 11:32:31 AM

The whole world finally returned to the trading realm today as Easter celebrations are finally over in Asia and Europe and have joined in on the over-analyzation of the Non-Farm Payroll disappointment experienced on Friday.  For their part, both Asian and European stock markets were markedly higher today with virtually all of the major indexes logging healthy gains, just as US stocks did yesterday.  US equities are joining in on the fun too with both  [...] Continue Reading
