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. Although the  [...] Continue Reading

GBP/USD clears major psychological barrier, paves way for more potential gains

Updated -  Jun 19, 2014 6:30:00 AM

The GBP/USD’s advance continues and this morning the currency pair is finding itself above the psychological 1.70 barrier. The pound is boosted above all by a hawkish Bank of England, and a stronger UK economy, while the dollar continues to be shot down by a dovish Federal Reserve. The greenback has dropped sharply in the aftermath of the FOMC policy announcement last night. Although the Fed cut QE by another $10bn to $35bn, this was  [...] Continue Reading

BOE minutes back up Carney, but sterling takes a knock

Updated -  Jun 18, 2014 6:50:00 AM

After BOE Governor Mark Carney’s shift to a more hawkish stance on interest rate policy, announced during his speech at the Mansion House last week, the minutes of the June meeting were always going to be under scrutiny. However, even though the minutes did suggest that the shift to a more hawkish stance was a multi-lateral event, the minutes were not hawkish enough for the FX market and the pound is now the weakest performer  [...] Continue Reading

Carney talks hawkish, but does the data add up?

Updated -  Jun 17, 2014 5:50:00 AM

Annual inflation in the UK fell to its lowest level since October 2009 last month, due to a large fall in transport costs, particularly air fares. The 0.1% drop in prices last month was a shock, since the market had been expecting a 0.2% rise. Prices in the UK have now been below the 2% Bank of England target rate since the start of 2014, thus, was Bank Governor Mark Carney premature in touting the  [...] Continue Reading

Crude concerns and the Carney effect still dominate the markets

Updated -  Jun 16, 2014 8:10:00 AM

After last week’s volatility, we are starting to wonder if “sell in May and go away” could be turned on its head and instead things could get more interesting this summer. A couple of themes appear to be developing, which could determine the direction of markets in the coming months:   1, Crude concerns: While the market has been able to shrug off geopolitical risks for most of this year, a continuous drip-feed of concern  [...] Continue Reading

Tough Luck for North America

Updated -  Jun 13, 2014 10:59:29 AM

*** Check out our new video series on YouTube called “The Lowdown” for more daily content! *** The triskaidekaphobic among us are probably pointing at their trading screens yelling “SEEEEEE!?!?!” with wide grins and manic giggles this morning as the first half of the North American trading session brought absolutely no luck to economic releases.  Both the US and Canada missed consensus on every single important figure, going 0 for 6 in the process.   [...] Continue Reading

Pound jumps as Carney suggests rate hike before 2015

Updated -  Jun 13, 2014 7:00:00 AM

Last night’s big news apart from the start of the World Cup was the Bank of England’s apparent change in tack after Mark Carney said interest rates could rise earlier than the financial markets currently expect. That sent GBP surging higher, although some traders may well have missed the move, distracted by Jennifer Lopez, Pitbull and Claudia Leitte performing in the opening ceremony, and then Brazil’s game against Croatia. Nevertheless, the GBP/USD has already moved  [...] Continue Reading

Seeking Motivation in North America

Updated -  Jun 11, 2014 11:42:04 AM

*** Check out our new video series on YouTube called “The Lowdown” for more daily content! *** Once again the economic calendar has been rather bare in North American trade as developments from Asia and Europe are having more influence on markets this morning.  The overnight session saw the AUD and GBP strengthen on encouraging Consumer Confidence and Employment respectively while the EUR has been having a harder time finding a reason to rally.   [...] Continue Reading

GBPUSD: time to turn a corner ahead of the BOE?

Updated -  Jun 2, 2014 11:40:00 AM

The pound had been the mighty currency in the G10 for most of the last 10 months; however it is starting to look decidedly mediocre. Its performance vs. the USD was middle of the road last May and after a torrid performance of late, GBPUSD is only 1.13% higher since the start of the year. So could the pound be ready to turn a corner? The fundamental picture still remains fairly supportive – the  [...] Continue Reading
