Is It “Flight to Safety” Time for GBP/USD?

Updated -  Feb 20, 2014 11:23:42 AM

Is It “Flight to Safety” Time for GBP/USD? Economic releases out of North America this morning have been telling vastly differing stories as the Flash Manufacturing PMI was much stronger than expectations and hit its highest level in almost four years, showing little to no deleterious weather related effects, while the Philadelphia Fed Manufacturing Index fell to its lowest level since February of last year, almost assuredly due to the snow and the cold.  Inflation  [...] Continue Reading

The UK data plays into Mark Carney’s hands

Updated -  Feb 19, 2014 5:20:00 AM

Mark Carney’s wishes may have come true. After the UK economy started to look too strong for forward guidance version one, it has cooled down a bit in recent months, which helps to justify forward guidance 2.0. Yesterday we had cooing in inflation pressure, today it was the labour market’s chance to come off the boil. The unemployment rate actually rose in December to 7.2% from 7.1%. This may be down to a statistical  [...] Continue Reading

North American Wrap-up: Milli Vanilli Economics

Updated -  Feb 18, 2014 4:42:17 PM

Milli Vanilli Economics Economists around the world are doing their best lip sync impersonations of the tarnished duo Milli Vanilli the last couple months as US data continues to come in under the weather, but instead of blaming it on the rain, they are pointing to unusual amounts of snow and ridiculously cold temperatures.  The North American trading session provided more of the same today as a trio of US data points missed  [...] Continue Reading

Has Goldilocks returned to the UK economy?

Updated -  Feb 18, 2014 5:40:00 AM

For the first time since November 2009 inflation has fallen below the government’s target of 2%. The Office for National statistics (ONS) said that the fall in inflation pressure was not down to a single sector; rather it was price movements in recreational goods and services, furniture and household items, alcohol and tobacco that triggered the slow-down in the rate of price growth. In contrast, goods and services prices edged up, but not enough to  [...] Continue Reading

GBP/USD: Pounding Out a New High?

Updated -  Feb 14, 2014 11:44:33 AM

Since the Quarterly Inflation Report was released by the Bank of England’s Governor Mark Carney on Wednesday of this week, the Pound Sterling has been the superstar of the currency world.  It has rallied over 300 pips in the span of the last three days with nary a pause to take a breather.  As it continues to rise though, it is approaching levels that may become increasingly difficult to clear based on longer term  [...] Continue Reading

GBPUSD: can the Carney effect see off 1.6668 resistance?

Updated -  Feb 13, 2014 6:10:00 AM

The pound has been the best performer in the G10 versus the USD this week, rising some 1.44% on the back of Mark Carney’s less dovish than expected Inflation Report on Wednesday. GBPUSD is now testing key resistance at 1.6668 – the high of the year so far. The market is getting indigestion this morning around 1.6650, although the broader bullish trend remains in place from a technical perspective, which could open the way to  [...] Continue Reading

North American Wrap-up: Washington Dodges Political Storm

Updated -  Feb 12, 2014 4:30:51 PM

Washington Dodges Political Storm Most markets were pretty bland in North American trade today as the lack of major news events created a lackadaisical atmosphere.  The UK’s Quarterly Inflation Report livened things up in Europe making the GBP/USD the big winner of the day, but outside of that, risk markets moved mostly sideways or slightly down.  The Dow was down about a quarter percent, S&P even less, while NASDAQ ended up green on the  [...] Continue Reading

UK Inflation Report: Forward Guidance 2.0

Updated -  Feb 12, 2014 6:55:00 AM

Well done Mr Carney. After some less than inspiring performances in his initial couple of Inflation Reports, the BOE’s communications department has surpassed itself and the Governors remarks were well laid out and easy for the market to read. Here are some of the highlights from the latest Inflation Report: Economic outlook: Forward Guidance: Forward Guidance 2.0: The BOE used this Inflation Report to unveil the evolution of forward guidance, which  [...] Continue Reading

Yellen at Congress

Updated -  Feb 11, 2014 11:55:27 AM

Yellen at Congress Global markets are taking new Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen’s testimony in stride this morning as her prepared remarks indicated that the plan to taper Quantitative Easing is proceeding along its intended path.  Risk related products like US equities, EUR, GBP, AUD, NZD, CAD, and even Gold rallied once an initial selloff subsided.  After some soap box grandstanding by the members of the committee, they allowed Yellen to speak and  [...] Continue Reading
