GBPUSD and the Scottish referendum

Updated -  Sep 2, 2014 8:40:00 AM

Currency traders woke up to a rather unsettling headline this morning – “Yougov poll finds rapid shift in favour of Scottish Independence”. For most of the campaign the FX market has shrugged off the risks of a win for the yes vote, as the no campaign had enjoyed a healthy lead; however, with just over three weeks to go until polling day the tide is starting to shift. While it is hard to pinpoint  [...] Continue Reading

GBPUSD: may not be able to brush off PMI woes for long

Updated -  Sep 1, 2014 5:55:00 AM

Although the UK manufacturing PMI for August fell to its lowest level since June last year, the pound’s reaction has been fairly muted, and GBPUSD remains at its highest level since 20th August. So why was the reaction so muted? From a fundamental perspective, GBPUSD’s reaction this morning wasn’t too surprising since consumer credit and mortgage approval data was better than expected. Since consumption and the housing market are important components of the UK  [...] Continue Reading

Mutiny at the Bank of England

Updated -  Aug 20, 2014 6:15:00 AM

The hawks at the Bank of England have started to spread their wings. At last two members of the Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) have broken ranks with the Governor for the first time since 2011. The longest period of unity in the MPC’s history has been shattered, now things at the BOE will start to get interesting. The fact that two members have voted for a rate hike already is significant for a few  [...] Continue Reading

GBPUSD: Mark Carney to the rescue

Updated -  Aug 18, 2014 5:40:00 AM

After a dismal performance last week, the pound was one of the weakest performers in the global FX space and only managed to beat the Turkish lira and Israeli shekel, the pound is back. It has bounced off its 200-day sma support at 1.6667, which has fuelled some speculation that a recovery could be on the cards.

Currency focus: is the attack on GBP justified?

Updated -  Aug 15, 2014 7:10:00 AM

The pound was one of the weakest performers in the FX space last week. To put this into perspective, it fell against all the other G10 currencies, on a broader basis, the Russian ruble and Argentinian peso out-performed the pound last week. The only other currencies that were weaker than the pound were the Israeli shekel and the Turkish lira. The latter was sold after Prime Minister Erdogan won the country’s first direct Presidential election,  [...] Continue Reading

Are the stars aligned for the dollar?

Updated -  Aug 14, 2014 8:55:00 AM

Two events have occurred over the last 24 hours that could trigger another leg higher for the dollar: 1, The BOE has back-tracked from an early rate increase and now it may not be the first of the major central banks to hike interest rates. This has weighed heavily on the pound. 2, German yields have fallen to record lows as the market prices in the prospect of QE from the ECB after  [...] Continue Reading

GBPUSD: testing critical support at 1.6664

Updated -  Aug 14, 2014 5:50:00 AM

The selling pressure on the pound has not eased as we move into Thursday and the sell-off that started in July could be about to gather pace if GBPUSD fails to hold above support at 1.6664 – the 200-day sma. If we get a daily close below this level then the technical and fundamental backdrop would both start to look grave for sterling. The pound and the BOE Although GBPUSD has fallen more than  [...] Continue Reading

Updated -  Aug 13, 2014 7:30:00 AM

What a difference 2 months’ make. Back in June, Mark Carney went out of his way to say that rates could rise sooner than expected, today, during his third Inflation Report of the year, he said that “now is not the time for a rate increase”, and when it is the time rate hikes will be slow and steady. Carney was called an unreliable boyfriend for his switch in tone towards rate hikes, but,  [...] Continue Reading

GBPUSD: is the break below 1.68 fatal?

Updated -  Aug 11, 2014 6:30:00 AM

This is a big week for the pound, on Wednesday we have a double whammy of fundamental risk: the latest employment report and the August Inflation Report. After nursing some heavy losses in recent weeks, GBPUSD is down 2.2% versus the USD in the past month, the long-term uptrend in the pound is starting to look shaky.
