Why women are to blame for today’s spike in the pound

Updated -  Jul 15, 2014 7:40:00 AM

The pound is the strongest performer in the G10 space so far today and recently made a fresh high ahead of the UK lunchtime. The key driver of the pound was stronger than expected inflation data, with headline CPI rising to its highest level since January and core CPI rising to 2%, the Bank of England’s target rate. So why did inflation jump from 1.5% to 1.9% when the market was expecting 1.6%? The Office  [...] Continue Reading

GBPUSD: Cable Rally Showing Signs of Cracking

Updated -  Jul 8, 2014 2:20:00 PM

After a string of strong economic reports last week, the UK suffered a fundamental setback earlier today. Both Industrial Production and Manufacturing Production missed expectations substantially last month;  IP came in at -0.7% vs. 0.2% expected and 0.3% (revised) last month, whereas MP dropped -1.3% against an anticipated 0.4% and a revised 0.3% last month. These disappointing readings have taken the luster off cable, but looking at the chart, the GBPUSD rally had already stalled  [...] Continue Reading

GBP/USD faces testing few days

Updated -  Jul 1, 2014 11:50:00 AM

The Cable goes from strength to strength and today it found additional buoyancy from the manufacturing sector. While the UK’s manufacturing PMI for June was ahead of expectations at 57.5, in the US, the PMI came in at 55.3, which was lower than expected and below the May’s reading of 55.4. Several other US macro pointers also disappointed, including the latest figures on construction spending and the result of the IBD/TIPP Economic Optimism survey. As  [...] Continue Reading

Month in Review: June a Rough Month for USD

Updated -  Jul 1, 2014 8:30:00 AM

“What is past is prologue” - William Shakespeare As we move into July and the second half of 2014 (already!), we think it would be valuable to review the performance of some of the major currencies and markets that we regularly discuss. On a day-to-day basis, it’s easy to get caught up in each minor wiggle on a chart, but by taking a step back and reviewing a month’s performance on the whole, major trends  [...] Continue Reading

GBPJPY: Pound gathers strength

Updated -  Jun 30, 2014 11:50:00 AM

The pound is one of the top performers at the start of this week.

This strength has also seeped into other GBP crosses, including GBPJPY. After faltering at 174.09, it retraced back to 172.38, where it has managed to find support, which suggests that the retracement  [...] Continue Reading

Updated -  Jun 27, 2014 9:55:00 AM

Has sterling’s rally stalled?

Updated -  Jun 25, 2014 6:40:00 AM

The pound reacted badly to BOE Carney’s comments to the UK Parliament on Tuesday, GBPUSD fell below 1.70, and so far it has stayed there. The BOE Governor was accused of being an “unreliable boyfriend”, flip-flopping between hawkish and dovish comments from week to week. For anyone who has had the misfortune to have an unreliable boyf, they should know how cable traders must be feeling. In fairness GBPUSD was looking a little out of  [...] Continue Reading

GBP/USD long-term chart suggests major gains could be on the way

Updated -  Jun 24, 2014 7:30:00 AM

With the FX markets moving at a snail’s pace of late, it may be an ideal time to look at some longer-term charts just to remind ourselves what the underlying trend is and if we are approaching any major technical levels.  One currency pair that has garnered a lot of attention has been the GBP/USD which last week hit its highest level since October 2008 after breaking above the psychological level of 1.7000.
