FTSE analysis: Disparity between UK and European stocks grows larger

HSBC and Glencore shares drop on disappointing earnings, although the overall positive appetite for global stocks and China’s latest efforts to shore up its stock market keeps the FTSE’s downside limited, as attention turns to the upcoming earnings results from Nvidia after the close.

FTSE analysis: UK CPI gives stocks much-needed boost

CPI-related gains mostly given back by the FTSE, but expectations of a sooner-than-expected BoE rate cuts have been re-ignited, which could encourage dip-buyers. Indeed, technical analysis suggests bullish trend is well and truly underway for FTSE. Meanwhile, London-listed energy stocks could find support from crude oil, now up for 6th day.

FTSE analysis: UK stocks poised for breakout as BoE rate cut bets increase

The under-performing FTSE managed to bounce modestly off its earlier lows as the pound fell after data showed the UK economy shrank more than expected, prompting traders to ramp up bets on Bank of England interest-rate cuts next year.

FTSE analysis: Time for UK to join global rally?

The ongoing stock market rally continues. With the US Thanksgiving holiday keeping trading on the quieter side today, the European markets edged higher. The DAX has now completely made back the entire losses it suffered between September and October. Other mainland European indices have similarly made strong gains, along with Wall Street. But frustratingly for the UK market, the FTSE has not shown much desire to go higher.

EUR/USD looks set to mean revert, Nasdaq to rally into Thanksgiving? European open

Has the rally on EUR/USD gone too far, too soon? Whilst it shows the potential for further gains, a pullback would not come as too much of a surprise. And with the Nasdaq rising ~80% of the Wednesday's ahead of Thanksgiving, we feel inclined to seek intraday bullish setups today.

USD/JPY bears eye 150, DAX squares up to its 200-day MA: European open

Whilst the 200-day MA stands in the way of further DAX gains, I suspect a move to 16k could still be on the cards. USD/JPY could also test 150 as part of its next leg lower, if incoming US data disappoints.

EUR/USD meanders around 1.06 ahead of key events: European open – 31/10/2023

EUR/USD has pulled back against Monday’s moves, but has the potential to extend yesterday’s rally should inflation data from across Europe come in hot enough today. We also have the FOMC meeting looming which has seen implied volatility rise for the pair.

EUR/USD hints at 1.07 swing high, USD/CAD steady pre BOC: European open

A 2-bar reversal on EUR/USD suggests it may have seen the completion of a 3-wave correction. If so, it also assumes a break to new cycle lows. Elsewhere, USD/CAD is sitting pretty just off its cycle highs ahead of today's BOC meeting, where a dovish hold might help it make a break for 1.38.

EUR/USD probes resistance ahead of CPI, Fed speakers: European open – 18/10/2023

EUR/USD followed our near-term bullish bias to a key resistance zone ahead of today's eurozone inflation report. And we also have several Fed members set to speak which could dictate which side of resistance the euro closes the day on.

GBP/USD, gold to withhold dollar strength? European open – 17/10/2023

UK wages and employment data is released shortly, which could set the tone for tomorrow's inflation report (which in turn could effectively decide the BOE's next interest rate decision). And that puts GBP/USD very much in focus, with US retail sales and several Fed members also on today's calendar. Gold is holding on to much of last week's gains, but we're looking for dips towards 1900 to increase the potential reward to risk ratio for bulls.

EUR/USD, FTSE 100 analysis: European open – 16/10/2023

Monday trade in Asia saw mild signs of mean reversion against some of last week's large moves, which should not be confused with 'risk-on' with sentiment remaining fragile around the Middle East conflict. Beyond these potentially false moves, we're looking for potential short setups on the FTSE 100 and EUR/USD.

EUR/USD, WTI crude oil tread water ahead of NFP: European open – 06/09/2023

It has been an action-packed week for markets, which has meant that price action ahead of today’s nonfarm payroll report has been quieter than usual. But that doesn't mean it will stay quiet heading into the weekend. Today we look at key levels on the intraday charts of EUR/USD and WTI crude oil.
