Crude oil maintains bullish trend

Updated  Jan 23, 2017 1:34:13 PM Written by Fawad Razaqzada

Oil prices were initially weaker at the start of the new week, but they have now recovered to trade almost flat at the time of this writing. At the weekend, the OPEC and some producers outside of the group met to discuss the progress of their oil production deal. The cartel reported that it was near its target of cutting 1.8 million barrels of crude oil per day, and shrugged off threats that the US [...] Continue Reading ...

FTSE could resume rally ahead of Supreme Court ruling on Brexit

Updated  Jan 23, 2017 6:22:17 AM Written by Fawad Razaqzada

Stock markets reaction to Donald Trump’s inauguration on Friday was… well, muted. The New US President delivered a speech which was centred on the idea of protectionism but made no mention of the Mexican wall. I don’t understand why everyone was expecting to see fireworks in the markets on Friday. Shocking as it may sound, he was going to become the 45th US President – this wasn’t news. Granted he didn’t say anything extraordinary controversial [...] Continue Reading ...

President Trump’s Inaugural Focus on “America First” Gives Markets Pause

Updated  Jan 20, 2017 2:25:00 PM Written by James Chen, CMT

It’s official – President-elect Trump is now President Trump after Friday’s inaugural swearing-in ceremony. The event was jam-packed with the usual inauguration fanfare, but what the markets were nervously waiting for was Trump’s first speech as president. Judging from the initial negative reaction in US stock markets during and immediately after the inaugural address, investors were not overly impressed. The primary message of Trump’s speech was that of putting America and the American people first [...] Continue Reading ...

Has the gold recovery reached near-exhaustion?

Updated  Jan 19, 2017 2:20:00 PM Written by James Chen, CMT

Since the beginning of the new year, gold has been on a sharp recovery, erasing more than half of its losses suffered after Donald Trump’s presidential election victory in early November. The recovery actually began in late December, when the price of gold lifted off its 10-month lows around the $1125 price area and quickly embarked on what has become a significant relief rally. Much of this rally has been tied to an overall pullback [...] Continue Reading ...

EUR/USD firm as focus turns to ECB presser, Trump inauguration

Updated  Jan 19, 2017 8:31:54 AM Written by Fawad Razaqzada

At today’s meeting, the Governing Council of the European Central Bank decided to leave the main interest rate unchanged at zero and made no alternations to the bank’s asset purchase programme. The policy statement contained nothing we haven’t heard before. As a result, the euro moved very little in reaction to the news and at the time of this writing it was trading its highest point on the day against the US dollar. The ECB’s [...] Continue Reading ...

Canadian dollar falls on fears of US protectionism

Updated  Jan 18, 2017 4:30:00 PM Written by James Chen, CMT

Although the Bank of Canada (BoC) left its overnight rate unchanged at 0.5% as expected on Wednesday, BoC Governor Stephen Poloz also said that “a rate cut remains on the table,” which helped prompt a sharp fall for the Canadian dollar. The central bank also stated that US President-elect Donald Trump’s expected protectionist trade stance would have a significantly negative impact on the Canadian economy, but that it would hold off on a rate cut [...] Continue Reading ...

Dollar at critical juncture ahead of US inauguration

Updated  Jan 18, 2017 1:15:00 PM Written by James Chen, CMT

Just a couple of days before Donald Trump’s inauguration as US president, the dollar is on a modest rebound but still generally under pressure amid a pullback that has been in place since the beginning of the new year. The dollar’s initial reaction to Trump’s November election was highly positive due in large part to expectations of higher US economic growth and interest rates under the new administration. The start of 2017, however, has begun [...] Continue Reading ...

GBP/USD could be heading towards 1.30s again

Updated  Jan 18, 2017 11:30:00 AM Written by Fawad Razaqzada

UK Prime Minister Theresa May’s comments about how the UK will leave the EU were well-received by traders yesterday as she confirmed that Parliament will debate the final Brexit deal. As a result, the GBP/USD had its best day since 2008 as it surged from around 1.20 to 1.24 in a matter of hours. But the cable has eased back somewhat sharply in the first half of today’s session despite news of stronger UK jobs [...] Continue Reading ...

Trump Inauguration Market Outlook

Updated  Jan 17, 2017 11:30:00 AM Written by James Chen, CMT

Friday, January 20, 2017 will mark the historic inauguration of what promises to be a highly unconventional US presidential administration. On that day, President-elect Donald Trump will be sworn-in as the 45th President of the United States, thrusting into the forefront all of the ambiguous anticipation over the future trajectory of the nation that has built-up in the past few months. While many Americans remain bitterly divided over the prospects for the new US government [...] Continue Reading ...
