Market Review & Outlook: Three Major Market Drivers

Updated  Sep 30, 2016 12:40:00 PM Written by James Chen, CMT

At the very end of September and the third quarter of 2016, with the US Federal Reserve’s latest interest rate decision out of the way for the time being, three major drivers have been dominating the financial markets and should continue to be instrumental in moving markets going forward. These three drivers are: 1) the first US presidential debate and upcoming elections, 2) severe troubles in the banking industry, and 3) the oil production deal [...] Continue Reading ...


Stocks trim losses

Updated  Sep 30, 2016 7:26:27 AM Written by Fawad Razaqzada

European stock markets started this last day of the month and quarter sharply lower as concerns over Deutsche Bank intensified, which undermined sentiment in the financial sector once again. Deutsche shares tanked nearly 9% at the open and hit a new 33-year low. Investors were concerned by news that some hedge funds have begun to pull their business from Germany’s largest lender. However, as the morning session wore on, European indices started to bounce [...] Continue Reading ...


USD/JPY falters amid safe-haven yen strength

Updated  Sep 29, 2016 2:25:00 PM Written by James Chen, CMT

USD/JPY initially surged on Thursday morning as the safe-haven yen pulled back on well-supported equity markets and hopes for a long-awaited OPEC deal to limit oil production and stabilize crude oil prices. This calm would not last into afternoon trading, however, as doubts about the solidity of the oil deal emerged and financial stocks took a hit due to fall-out from Deutsche Bank’s woes. These concerns helped pressure equity markets, boosting the safe-haven yen and [...] Continue Reading ...


OPEC’s decision will likely boost oil prices further in short term

Updated  Sep 29, 2016 7:38:08 AM Written by Fawad Razaqzada

The OPEC surprised the market yesterday and actually managed to agree on a production cut, with details to follow in their November meeting. Up to 800,000 barrels of oil per day will potentially be removed from the oversupplied market which would lower the production target for the cartel to a range between 32.5 and 33.0 mb/d. Oil prices surged some 6% in the immediate aftermath of the news, though they have since eased off a [...] Continue Reading ...


US Presidential Election: Potential Market Impacts

Updated  Sep 28, 2016 1:00:00 PM Written by James Chen, CMT

The US presidential election, scheduled for November 8, 2016, promises to be exceptionally unique with potentially far-reaching consequences, whichever way the final vote tally ultimately goes. In the financial markets, these consequences are apt to lead to significant market price movements and volatility, all depending on the rapidly unfolding outcome of this historic race and the prevailing market sentiments towards the two primary candidates. The two candidates, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, represent virtually polar [...] Continue Reading ...


Oil higher ahead of OPEC decision

Updated  Sep 28, 2016 12:40:00 PM Written by Fawad Razaqzada

Crude prices jumped in reaction to the latest weekly US crude stockpiles data but then quickly went into reverse gear, before bouncing back once again. Traders were in no mood to take any chances ahead of the conclusion of talks between the OPEC and non-OPEC members in Algeria, especially given how headline-driven prices have become. At the time of this writing, Brent was trading at $46.65 and WTI at $45.20 a barrel, both holding onto [...] Continue Reading ...


NZD/USD looks set for a deeper pullback

Updated  Sep 28, 2016 7:50:00 AM Written by Fawad Razaqzada

The New Zealand dollar’s recent advance has come to a halt recently after the Reserve Bank of New Zealand suggested that interest rates may need to be cut further from their current record low of 2.0%. The NZD’s retreat has been particularly noticeable against the Australian dollar as the AUD/NZD pair has surged back above 1.0500 after dipping to as low as 1.0240. It looks like the US dollar is also now getting the upper [...] Continue Reading ...


US presidential debate moves unwind; gold coiling for breakout

Updated  Sep 27, 2016 9:22:55 AM Written by Fawad Razaqzada

The market’s initial response to the US presidential election debate overnight was a clear sigh of relief. The Mexican Peso, which had hit a record low against the dollar just the day before, surged higher, as too did the Canadian dollar, Japanese Yen and global stock index futures. However most of those moves have already reversed as traders were quick to take profit, knowing full well that a TV debate may not necessarily impact the [...] Continue Reading ...


GBP technical analysis against USD, JPY and EUR

Updated  Sep 26, 2016 1:47:03 PM Written by Fawad Razaqzada

The GBP/USD has finally found some support today, though it is too early to say whether the selling pressure is over just yet. There hasn’t been any real news out to support the pound. If anything, news out of the UK has been actually bearish. For example, a survey of 100 business leaders by accountancy firm KPMG has shown that the vast majority would consider moving their headquarters or operations outside Britain due to Brexit. [...] Continue Reading ...


Markets start last week of September on the back foot

Updated  Sep 26, 2016 10:20:00 AM Written by Fawad Razaqzada

It hasn’t been a great start for global equities in this last week of September, with European indices dropping between 1.0 to 1.5 per cent during Monday’s morning session, mirroring a similar performance in Chinese and Japanese markets overnight. Wall Street has further extended its falls at the open from Friday when the S&P 500 closed down more than half a percent. At the time of this writing, the major indices were again down by [...] Continue Reading ...
