EUR/GBP

En el mercado de Forex, el par EUR/GBP extiende ganancias ya que el Banco de Inglaterra podría moverse en alza antes de lo esperado. El EUR/GBP está presionando a la baja al comienzo de la nueva semana, extendiendo las pérdidas de la semana anterior.

El movimiento a la baja se produce después de que el legislador del Banco de Inglaterra, Michael Saunders, advirtiera que los hogares deberían prepararse para un aumento significativamente más temprano de las tasas de interés a medida que aumenta la presión inflacionaria.

WTI Oil

El WTI Oil, siglas que significan West Texas Intermediate Crude Oil o petróleo crudo en español, saltó nuevamente al comenzar la nueva semana, extendiendo las sólidas ganancias de la semana pasada y cotizando en máximos de 7 años a medida que la crisis energética se afianza.

Los precios del gas y el carbón han aumentado a medida que las economías se recuperan de la pandemia y la actividad económica se recupera. La subida del precio de estos productos básicos hace que el petróleo sea comparativamente más barato y más atractivo. Sigue más de cerca el mercado de commodities con FOREX.com.

EUR/GBP extends gains as BoE could move to hike sooner

EURGBP is pushing lower at the start of the new week, extending losses from the previous week.

The move lower comes after BoE policymaker Michael Saunders warned that households should brace themselves for a significantly earlier interest rate rise as inflationary pressure mount.

Rising energy prices and labour shortages mean that consumer inflation is expected to rise over 4% by the end of the year and remain elevated for longer than initially expected.

Meanwhile the ECB last week sent the Euro southwards after the minutes to the latest ECB meeting revealed that the central bank is looking into another bond purchasing programme for when the PEPP expires.

The central bank divergence is boosting GBP whilst dragging on EUR.

Oil prices keep on rising beyond $80

Crude oil jumped again as the new week kicks off, extending solid gains from last week and trading at 7-year highs as the energy crisis tightens its grip.

Gas and coal prices have been surging as economies recover from the pandemic and economic activity picks up. The rise in the price of these commodities makes oil comparatively cheaper and more attractive.

There are reports of blackouts in some stats in India whilst China has ordered the ramping up of coal production as prices rally.

Meanwhile OPEC voted to stick to the output increase agreed in July.

US added five new oil wells last week.
