Unexpected Hike Leads to Unexpected Reaction in USDRUB

Updated  Jul 25, 2014 4:00:00 PM Written by Matt Weller

Earlier today, the Bank of Russia surprised traders by hiking its main interest rate by 50bps from 7.5% to 8.0%. Not one of the 23 economists polled in a pre-meeting survey by Bloomberg had expected an interest rate hike; in fact, one particularly bold economist was calling for a 25bp cut! What these economists failed to take into consideration was the interplay between economics and geopolitics. The international uproar over the downing of Malaysian Airlines [...] Continue Reading ...


IBEX: Spanish index outperforms but faces potential resistance

Updated  Jul 25, 2014 11:00:00 AM Written by Fawad Razaqzada

The IBEX index has outperformed its European peers today, adding to the strong gains made yesterday when it rallied on the back of some cheerful news regarding Spain’s labour market and the better than expected European PMIs. The Spanish labour market showed signs of recovery at long last as it posted its first annual increase in jobs in six years while the unemployment numbers recorded their biggest fall since 2006. That caused the jobless [...] Continue Reading ...


NZD/USD attempting to break bullish trend

Updated  Jul 25, 2014 10:00:00 AM Written by Fawad Razaqzada

The NZD/USD is attempting to take out a bullish trend line that has been in place since February. The Kiwi has weakened quite sharply in recent days after the RBNZ intervened verbally against the currency’s appreciation and delivered what appears to be the last rate hike for a long time on Wednesday. If the NZD/USD closes the session below the trend line (0.8550) then we could see significant falls next week as more buyers [...] Continue Reading ...


UK economic rebound fails to excite the markets

Updated  Jul 25, 2014 6:20:00 AM Written by Kathleen Brooks

This morning we had confirmation of another solid quarter of growth for the UK. Q2 GDP rose by 0.8%, the same pace at Q1. This is encouraging as there were plenty of headwinds to knock the economy off course, including geopolitical fears, rising expectations of a UK interest rate increase and a surge in the pound. Our annual rate of growth is now 3.1%, up from 3% in Q1. To put this in some [...] Continue Reading ...


Inflation in Japan may have stalled for the time being

Updated  Jul 24, 2014 9:12:46 PM Written by Chris Tedder

Consumer prices in Japan rose 3.6% in June from a year earlier, beating an expected 3.5% increase but slower than the prior month’s 3.7% jump. Surging food and utility prices distorted the headline figure, thus it’s useful to look at inflation when these prices are taken out. Excluding food prices, CPI rose 3.3% y/y (exp. 3.3%), and excluding food and energy prices, CPI jumped 2.3% y/y (exp. 2.3%). However, even these figures are misleading [...] Continue Reading ...


AUDUSD: Why .9450 is Such a Tough Nut to Crack

Updated  Jul 24, 2014 1:45:00 PM Written by Matt Weller

In the days before ubiquitous computers, floor traders needed a simple way to calculate intraday levels of support and resistance. Enter pivot points. Pivot points use the high, low, and closing price of the previous day to project support and resistance levels for the current day. For instance, the central pivot point is calculated as the (high + low + close) / 3, or effectively the average price of the previous day. As a general [...] Continue Reading ...


Gold plunges on improved appetite for risk

Updated  Jul 24, 2014 12:10:00 PM Written by Fawad Razaqzada

Just like the past few days, gold is once again weighed down by the deadly combination of stronger dollar and US equities. The greenback’s strength is bizarre given the big disappointment we had in terms of housing market data as new home sales plunged in June from an already low base the month before. Sales of new homes dropped to 406,000 annualised units in June from 442,000 in May (the original estimate for May was [...] Continue Reading ...


What Can USDCHF Tell Us About the EURUSD Breakdown?

Updated  Jul 24, 2014 9:00:00 AM Written by Matt Weller

The market has been enamored with this week’s price action in EURUSD, which unexpectedly peeked down to a new 2014 low under the key 1.3475-1.3500 support zone on Tuesday. However, as we roll into today’s North American session, the pair is fighting its way back toward 1.3500 on the back of decent PMI readings from the Eurozone. For the currency union as a whole, the Manufacturing PMI figure rose to 51.9, in-line with expectations, [...] Continue Reading ...


FTSE boosted by strong PMIs, looks set to test 6865/80 for umpteenth time

Updated  Jul 24, 2014 7:40:00 AM Written by Fawad Razaqzada

Following a sluggish start, the FTSE has turned higher along with the other European markets. Sentiment has been boosted, above all, by the surprisingly good economic data from China and Europe and as corporate earnings from the US continues to surprise to the upside with Facebook posting strong quarterly numbers overnight. Compared to some of the other European indices, the FTSE’s gains have been somewhat mild however. Not only is this because of the direct [...] Continue Reading ...


China’s manufacturing data lifts investor sentiment

Updated  Jul 23, 2014 11:41:26 PM Written by Chris Tedder

The strongest reading of Chinese private sector manufacturing PMI in 18 months has given the Australian dollar another boost, following yesterday’s rally on the back of stronger than expected Australian inflation data, and helped to strengthen the yuan and equity markets throughout Asia. HSBC China July Manufacturing PMI jumped to 52.0 from 50.7, beating an expected rise to 51.0. Digging into the data it’s encouraging to note that most of the 11 sub-indices improved significantly [...] Continue Reading ...
