US Economy Sprinting to the 2014 Finish Line While Fed Tries to Catch Up

Updated -  Jul 29, 2014 3:00:00 PM

** I originally published this piece as a Mid-Year Update for the US Economy at last week, but wanted to republish it here for anyone who may have missed it, especially with so many important economic reports coming out over the next 24 hours! ** If we think of 2014 as a track race, the US economy undoubtedly stumbled out of the starting blocks to begin the year. Heading into January, traders and  [...] Continue Reading

USD Bulls on Parade!

Updated -  Jul 29, 2014 1:45:00 PM

Without a doubt, the defining theme for the month of July has been the greenback’s rampage higher. The USD index, which represents the value of the US Dollar against a weighted basket of the world’s most important currencies, rose from 79.75 at the start of the month to 81.25; while a roughly 2% move over the course of month may not sound particularly impressive, the broad-based rally has taken the dollar index to its highest  [...] Continue Reading

European Wrap-Up: Legitimately Crying Over Spilt Milk Prices

Updated -  Jul 29, 2014 11:20:41 AM

*** Check out our new video series on YouTube called “The Lowdown” for more daily content! *** European equity and currency markets diverged from one another today as the FTSE, DAX, and CAC all recovered from early squandering to finish comfortably in the green, while currencies like the EUR, GBP, and CHF languished against the USD.  News events were nary a reason for most of these moves, at least out of Europe, as price  [...] Continue Reading

Month-End FX Rebalancing May Reflect July’s Price Action: Lackluster

Updated -  Jul 29, 2014 9:20:00 AM

Background: Traders often discuss how ‘month end’ flows may impact a currency or a currency pair during the last few day(s) of the month. These flows are caused by global portfolio managers rebalancing their existing currency hedges. If the value of one country’s equity and bond markets increases, these money managers typically look to sell or hedge their elevated risk in that country’s currency and rebalance their exposure back to an underperforming country’s currency. The  [...] Continue Reading

European Wrap-Up: Sanctions Loom on Data-less Monday

Updated -  Jul 28, 2014 11:25:59 AM

*** Check out our new video series on YouTube called “The Lowdown” for more daily content! *** The big news around European circles today was the sheer lack of any news to grapple upon as no important data was released until North America joined the lighted side of the globe.  Asian markets started the week with no notable data releases, and Europe blindly followed.  As for the North American data, the US Flash Markit  [...] Continue Reading

GBPUSD Bulls Standing on the Precipice

Updated -  Jul 28, 2014 9:15:00 AM

It’s been an excruciating slow start to the trading week with an absolutely barren economic calendar in both Asia and Europe today. Over the weekend, news hit the wires that the US and Europe are preparing another round of economic sanctions against Russia for their involvement in the ongoing clash in Ukraine, and this is keeping risk appetite relatively subdued ahead of today’s US session. With minimal new price action today, it’s worthwhile to take  [...] Continue Reading

UK economic rebound fails to excite the markets

Updated -  Jul 25, 2014 6:20:00 AM

This morning we had confirmation of another solid quarter of growth for the UK. Q2 GDP rose by 0.8%, the same pace at Q1. This is encouraging as there were plenty of headwinds to knock the economy off course, including geopolitical fears, rising expectations of a UK interest rate increase and a surge in the pound. Our annual rate of growth is now 3.1%, up from 3% in Q1. To put this in some  [...] Continue Reading

Bank of England to markets: “Hold your horses”

Updated -  Jul 23, 2014 8:20:00 AM

The minutes from the BOE meetings have become the most important way for the market to gauge the Bank’s sentiment and make predictions about its next move. After feeling pretty confident in recent weeks that Mark Carney and co. had shifted to a more hawkish policy stance, the market rushed to price in two rate hikes by the end of Q1 2015, the latest minutes have left the market scratching its head once more. How  [...] Continue Reading

BOE Minutes Preview: Real Wages are Really Important

Updated -  Jul 22, 2014 3:00:00 PM

Trade in GBPUSD has been undeniably lackluster to start this week, with rates contained to just a 60-pip range thus far, but volatility in the GBPUSD will almost certainly pick up substantially heading into the latter half of the week. While classic stalwarts like Retail Sales (Thursday) and Preliminary GDP (Friday) are sure to be market-moving one way or another, tomorrow’s BOE Minutes may be the most important event for traders to monitor.   A  [...] Continue Reading

GBP/USD upward trend still intact, but bulls need to show presence pretty soon

Updated -  Jul 22, 2014 12:30:00 PM

About a month ago now, we took a long-term view on the GBP/USD and suggested that there could be significant gains on the way for the currency pair. At the time, the Cable had just breached 1.7040/5 which was previously a significant resistance level and also the 2009 high. From there, it went up by another 150 pips before the rally exhausted around 1.7190. As can be seen on the daily chart, this 1.7190  [...] Continue Reading
