Five minute preview: FOMC minutes – October meeting

Updated -  Nov 19, 2014 12:10:00 PM

In less than 2 hours the Federal Reserve will release the minutes of its last meeting from 28/29th October. While all Fed communication is worth watching out for, these minutes are imbued with extra significance, as the Fed ended its QE programme last month. The statement released with the conclusion of the Fed meeting on 29th October was upbeat about the outlook for the labour market, and it did not include too many concerns  [...] Continue Reading

Japan: what is going on and how could this impact the markets?

Updated -  Nov 18, 2014 12:10:00 PM

Over the last few weeks Japan has grabbed the headlines, there have been some major changes to monetary and economic policy and this is having a big impact on the markets and could continue to do so for some time. We analyse the changes below. Growth: Japan was plunged back into recession in Q3 after the economy contracted by a hefty 1.8%. The market had been expecting a 0.5% increase. In fairness, there were  [...] Continue Reading

Blizzards, Beaches, and the Rising US Dollar Tide

Updated -  Nov 18, 2014 9:20:00 AM

Blizzards, Beaches, and the Rising US Dollar Tide For those who have never sat on a beach and watched the ocean tide come in, it’s a practice I wholeheartedly recommend. The gradual rise in overall water levels is almost imperceptible, but as each wave recedes, another one rises to take its place and extend the peak water level ever-so-slightly. Perhaps it’s the unusually early blizzard bombarding our Michigan office today, but it’s particularly  [...] Continue Reading

CPI gives GBP a boost, but it’s only temporary

Updated -  Nov 18, 2014 5:50:00 AM

The pound has bounced this morning and made fresh highs of the day after CPI was stronger than expected. The October reading rose to 1.3%, the market had expected it to remain at 1.2%. Considering the Bank of England Governor Mark Carney was dovish in last week’s Quarterly Inflation Report and said that there was a risk that inflation could fall below 1% in the coming months, was he being too cautious? Call of  [...] Continue Reading

USDJPY: Could We See a Deeper Pullback off 115.00?

Updated -  Nov 10, 2014 9:00:00 AM

Following in the wake of a (very) slight miss in Friday’s NFP report, the US Dollar is continuing to pull back today. After a strong run over the last few weeks, the greenback is deeply overbought; therefore, the recent dip may simply represent profit-taking on the part of long-term dollar bulls, but the key question for FX traders is “How much further will the dollar drop?” As always, the answer is a nuanced. Of  [...] Continue Reading

USDJPY prepares for tonight’s NFP numbers

Updated -  Nov 6, 2014 9:45:14 PM

It has been a crazy couple of weeks for USDJPY due to game changing policy meetings at the Fed and the BoJ. The Fed produced a more hawkish statement than the market was expecting, sparking a rally in the US dollar. Two days later the BoJ surprised the market by announcing a raft of new stimulus which sent investors flocking away from the yen. The end result was a massive surge in USDJPY that sent  [...] Continue Reading

USDJPY: The BOJ Delivers a Halloween Treat to Bulls

Updated -  Oct 31, 2014 8:55:00 AM

In today’s Asian session, the BOJ shocked traders by increasing its already-massive Quantitative Easing program by another 30 trillion yen per year ($270B), bringing the total yearly purchases to a total of 80 trillion yen ($725B). To put this program into context, it represents an annual injection equal to roughly 14% of Japan’s GDP, dwarfing the recently wound-down QE programs in the US (6% at the peak of $85B in monthly purchases). The central bank  [...] Continue Reading

Fed Instant Reaction: Almost, but Not Quite, Entirely As Expected

Updated -  Oct 29, 2014 2:20:00 PM

The Federal Reserve’s October monetary policy statement just hit the wires, and traders generally got what they were expecting from the world’s largest central bank. As widely anticipated, the Fed stuck to its foreshadowed timeline by tapering the final $15B in monthly asset purchase; at this point, continuing the quantitative easing program would likely have caused more harm (in terms of lost credibility and increased uncertainty) than good. Despite the decision to wind down  [...] Continue Reading

USDJPY: “Fed” Up With Consolidation at 108.00

Updated -  Oct 29, 2014 8:50:00 AM

It’s been a quiet start to the forex trading week across the board, and no pair shows that phenomenon more than USDJPY. After gapping above 108.30 to start the week, the pair has dropped back down to consolidate around the 108.00 handle for the last three days. Short-term traders are no doubt frustrated with the lack of volatility thus far, but one way or another, market movement is likely to pick up with the release  [...] Continue Reading

USD/JPY: The Gartley Has It

Updated -  Oct 23, 2014 11:16:27 AM

The start to the North American trading session has been a Chamber of Commerce type of day for the US economy with virtually all of the US data releases either beating expectations or showing overall strength even if it didn’t live up to expectations.  The day was kicked off with beats on Chicago Fed National Activity Index and Continuing Jobless Claims and strove on with Housing Price Index and the Conference Board’s Leading Indicator.  Misses  [...] Continue Reading
