Silver: Precious metals shaky ahead of US GDP

Updated  Oct 28, 2016 8:00:20 AM Written by Fawad Razaqzada

Gold and silver have been stuck between a rock and hard places. On the one hand, the mild equity market sell-off and uncertainty surrounding the US presidential election, among other risks, have been supportive for the perceived safe-haven metals. On the other hand however, the dollar and government bond yields have been rallying, which have dampened the appeal of these noninterest-bearing and buck-denominated precious metals. The dollar and US Treasury yields have been rising recently [...] Continue Reading ...

EUR/USD bounces but bears still in control

Updated  Oct 27, 2016 12:15:00 PM Written by James Chen, CMT

EUR/USD continued to push higher early on Thursday, extending its bounce from the new 7-month low of 1.0850 that was hit early this week. In the process of rebounding, the currency pair has re-approached a key resistance level around 1.0950 that was previously a major support level before being broken down a week ago. If this resistance level continues to hold, EUR/USD could soon see a sharp downturn to extend the recent bearish trend, especially [...] Continue Reading ...

USD/JPY breaks out as bond yields surge higher

Updated  Oct 27, 2016 10:50:00 AM Written by Fawad Razaqzada

The US dollar has turned higher after a weaker start and following two down days, as measured by the Dollar Index. The dollar rebound has been supported by a strong rise in US Treasury yields, with the benchmark 10-year yield rising to around 1.85 percent. We think that it is the rising expectations about tighter monetary policy conditions in the US which is behind the government bond sell-off. Supporting this view was today’s stronger US [...] Continue Reading ...

Dollar falters but strength remains ahead of jam-packed week

Updated  Oct 26, 2016 4:40:00 PM Written by James Chen, CMT

The US dollar has taken a bit of a breather this week as it consolidates its recent gains ahead of major economic data and events in coming days. For around a month, the greenback has been on an exceptionally sharp incline as expectations for a Federal Reserve rate hike this year have progressively increased. A mid-December rate hike continues to be seen as the most likely scenario. But before that may or may not happen, [...] Continue Reading ...

Crude oil remains pressured despite US inventory draw

Updated  Oct 26, 2016 1:15:00 PM Written by James Chen, CMT

The West Texas Intermediate (WTI) benchmark for US crude oil prices surged on Wednesday after the Energy Information Administration (EIA) reported that US commercial crude inventories fell by 553,000 barrels last week. The markets had been expecting a substantial build in stockpiles, particularly after Tuesday’s report from the American Petroleum Institute (API), which had reported a much higher-than-expected build last week of 4.8 million barrels. The EIA’s report of a surprise draw last week follows [...] Continue Reading ...

Risk appetite improvement undermines gold as stocks, oil rebound

Updated  Oct 26, 2016 12:48:49 PM Written by Fawad Razaqzada

At the start of today’s European session, things were looking bleak. Oil was down, European stocks were trading lower as were US index futures, while safe-haven gold was firmer. Speculators had plenty of reasons to feel downbeat on risky assets. Apple for one had produced its third straight quarter of falling revenues last night, while London-listed Lloyds reported this morning a fall in profit and Antofagasta said its full year 2016 copper production was expected [...] Continue Reading ...

Strong Aussie CPI lifts AUD/USD to key juncture ahead of RBA, Fed

Updated  Oct 26, 2016 8:15:45 AM Written by Fawad Razaqzada

The Australian dollar extended its rebound overnight after domestic consumer inflation data came out stronger than expected. The AUD/USD staged a quick rally to the key 0.7700 resistance area before drifting lower again during the European morning session. According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, the Consumer Price Index (CPI) rose by 0.7% in the third quarter compared to 0.4% in Q2. On a year-over-year basis, CPI rose to 1.5%. Both measures of inflation topped [...] Continue Reading ...

Gold at a critical juncture ahead of key risk events

Updated  Oct 25, 2016 3:30:00 PM Written by James Chen, CMT

As the markets gear up for major risk events in the coming weeks, gold has been struggling to recover from its early October plunge. The price of gold is closely tied to several different factors beyond just fluctuations in demand for the physical asset. Most notably, these factors include the strength/weakness of the US dollar, central bank monetary policy and interest rates, as well as the level of risk appetite in the markets. All of [...] Continue Reading ...

USD/MXN heading for further breakdown as peso extends recovery

Updated  Oct 25, 2016 2:00:00 PM Written by James Chen, CMT

Despite acute US dollar strength throughout the month of October thus far, the USD/MXN currency pair has been in a virtual state of free fall due to a sharp and prolonged rebound for the Mexican peso that has corresponded with the deterioration of Donald Trump’s campaign for the US presidency. This sharp rebound for the peso was initially triggered immediately after the first 2016 presidential debate between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton on September 26th, [...] Continue Reading ...

AUD/JPY in for rollercoaster ride as focus turns to Aussie CPI, RBA and BOJ

Updated  Oct 25, 2016 1:01:13 PM Written by Fawad Razaqzada

The Australian dollar has been fairly stable recently, and it has actually risen against weaker rivals such as the New Zealand dollar and Japanese yen. However, that could all change if investors start to dislike risk, if, for example, U.S. elections or disappointing corporate earnings cause global equities to retreat. There is also a risk that tonight’s CPI inflation figures from Australia will disappoint expectations, while the Reserve Bank of Australia may surprise the market [...] Continue Reading ...
