US dollar remains on shaky footing ahead of pivotal Fed meeting

Updated -  Dec 11, 2015 10:30:00 AM

The US dollar remained on shaky footing Friday as the markets awaited next week’s long-anticipated Federal Reserve meeting, when a decision will be announced as to whether or not the Fed will raise rates this year for the first time in nearly ten years. This week saw the greenback largely mixed as it pulled back significantly against several major currencies, most notably the Japanese yen, while strengthening against commodity currencies like the Canadian dollar and  [...] Continue Reading

GBP/USD continues bearish step-down pattern

Updated -  Dec 7, 2015 4:30:00 PM

GBP/USD continues to trade within a bearish step-down pattern, as it has formed a series of progressively lower lows and lower highs for much of the latter half of this year thus far, since the 1.5900-area high back in mid-June. Since that 2015 high, the currency pair has fallen steadily as firming expectations of a US interest rate hike this year have far overshadowed vague anticipation of a possible UK rate hike at some indistinct  [...] Continue Reading

GBP/USD bounce stalls out, now testing 1.50 after strong ADP data

Updated -  Dec 2, 2015 8:50:00 AM

After the slow click-click-click of suspense-building economic data early in the week, the rollercoaster ride has started in earnest for traders. Overnight, traders got their first look at Australian Q3 GDP data, which came out better-than-expected at 0.9% q/q and we also got a small positive revision to last month’s report. Unfortunately, the positive vibes did not carry over into today’s European session. UK Construction PMI came out at just 55.3, well below the 58.4  [...] Continue Reading

November recap: USD reigns, but upstart Aussie takes the cake

Updated -  Dec 1, 2015 8:20:00 AM

For anyone trading FX through the month of November, the most obvious theme was the resurgence of the US dollar bullish trend. This move was driven almost exclusively by increasing expectations that the Federal Reserve would raise interest rates at its upcoming December meeting, and throughout the month, economic data continually reinforced this view. The dollar’s explosive November started out with the blowout October NFP report, which showed 271k new jobs created, carried through  [...] Continue Reading

Dovish BOE comments + decent US GDP = GBP/USD 1.50?

Updated -  Nov 24, 2015 8:45:00 AM

In an otherwise quiet day in the foreign exchange market, GBP/USD has seen a relatively big drop amidst dovish comments from BOE policymakers and decent US data. During this morning’s European session, BOE Chief Economist Andy Haldane posted an annual report with his views on the Bank of England’s website. In those comments, Haldane highlighted that the risks to growth and inflation were skewed to the downside and crucially, that the Bank of England  [...] Continue Reading

GBP/USD: Low conviction dollar longs jump ship

Updated -  Nov 19, 2015 3:35:00 PM

It’s been a rough day for the US dollar, and the big drop in the greenback doesn’t stem from a clear bearish catalyst. This morning’s US economic data was fairly mixed, with initial jobless claims printing in-line with expectations at 271k, while the Philadelphia Fed Manufacturing index ticked back into positive territory at 1.9 (from -4.5 last month and 0.1 expected). The upcoming “Black Friday” holiday provides a perfect metaphor to help explain today’s  [...] Continue Reading

GBP/USD could turn volatile as investors eye UK, US CPI

Updated -  Nov 16, 2015 1:10:00 PM

Last week, the British pound was among the strongest of currencies in G10. The week before, it was one of the weakest. Clearly, speculators who had established short positions in GBP, especially against the USD, after that surprisingly dovish Bank of England Inflation Report, used the opportunity of a mostly US data-void week to book profit on their positions throughout last week. In addition, we had some stronger employment data from the UK last Wednesday  [...] Continue Reading

GBP/USD bounces back on UK employment data; faces major resistance

Updated -  Nov 11, 2015 7:26:12 AM

Much like yesterday afternoon, it has been a relatively quiet day in the FX markets due to the lack of any significant Eurozone or US data, and as North American banks are closed in observance of Veterans Day. But luckily, we’ve had some important employment data from the UK which caused a bit of volatility in the pound. Although wage growth was slightly weaker than expected, the jobs figures were eye catching nonetheless for the  [...] Continue Reading

BOE’s “Super Thursday” lives up to its billing…for GBP bears

Updated -  Nov 5, 2015 8:40:00 AM

As my colleague Fawad Razaqzada noted earlier today, traders were waiting with bated breath for the Bank of England’s “Super Thursday” festivities to kick off the final rush of top-tier economic data ahead of the weekend. As it turns out, the event only lived up to its billing for bears, while bulls were left holding the bag. Predictably, the BOE left interest rates unchanged at 0.5% for the 80th consecutive month while also refraining from  [...] Continue Reading

Are the tides turning in the FX market

Updated -  Oct 27, 2010 8:00:00 AM

Yesterday’s large currency moves are extremely significant for the FX market. Sterling has been one of the weakest currencies in recent months, but yesterday’s reversal has seen sterling make a significant low, especially against strong currencies like the euro, the Aussie and the CHF. In contrast, the Aussie dollar , which has been one of the strongest currencies, may have formed a temporary top and is coming under pressure on a broad-based basis.  [...] Continue Reading
