Cautious EURUSD Ahead of ECB

USD, and the US government bond yields, surged last night following Fed president Janet Yellen’s speech to the Commonwealth Club in San Francisco...

The Fed waiting game

Ranges were on the tight side during Monday as markets hold back ahead of the two-day Fed meeting in the US which starts today. This is the last major known risk event of the year, so once over, we’re likely to see volatility and volumes diminish into year end...


Tapering and extending

The main challenge for markets today will be steering through the messages that emerge from the ECB meeting and press conference. Whereas the Fed meeting next week is seen as a near certainty in terms of its outcome, this is not the same for the ECB...

Crisis Lite

The Italian referendum on constitutional reform saw voters reject the proposals in front of them, in a fairly decisive manner. As such, Italian PM Renzi will tender his resignation today and this became part of the issue...

Dollar dominance

There was a sense of stabilisation yesterday after the sharp rise in bond yields seen at the end of last week, the impact of which spilled over into the FX and also equity markets. It’s notable that trading ranges have remained wider since the US election last week...

Trump Trades

The story being seen in stocks markets and currency markets in the wake of the US Presidential election result is starting to diverge. Asian currencies have been under pressure, with the Korean won, Indian Rupee and Aussie dollar all weakening overnight...


The politics of change

The most accurate thing stated by Trump during his campaign was It's going to be brexit plus plus plus… and indeed it was, with Trump defying the closing polling and the ever more fancy infographics suggesting a win for Clinton. The reaction in markets verifies this comment...

Brexit Barometer

The Brexit vote back in June taught markets never to take anything for granted and the same holds true for the upcoming US Presidential election. A poll lead for Trump in Florida yesterday, combined with some further revelations in the daily mud-slinging...

Sterling reversal

What we saw in sterling yesterday was instructive of the dilemma that may face other central bankers before long. Carney played down expectations of a further easing in policy before the end of the year, as was strongly suggested in August when they eased policy in the wake of the Brexit referendum...


Doting on Draghi

The ECB meeting arrives today when EURUSD is testing key levels. The mid-year lows at 1.0952 is perilously close as I write, whilst the post-Brexit referendum low of 1.0913 being in the frame after that. It’s hard to see the ECB adding to its quantitative easing policy...

FTSE Tests Long Term Significant Resistance

The FTSE 100 index hit an all-time high, on Tuesday. It was helped by the outperformance of energy and mining sectors, as a result of the rise of oil and precious metal prices, as well as the increase in corporate overseas profits, as a result of a weak pound...

The dominating dollar

There is little standing in the way of the US dollar at this point in time. If we look at the past seven sessions on the dollar index, where we’ve seen a 1.7% increase, there have only been three other brief prior periods during the year when we’ve seen a similar pace of appreciation...


The Sterling Flash Crash

Sterling’s overnight flash crash is the main talking point of markets at the start of the Friday session. As is the case with most such situations, the actual cause of the sharp decline at the start of the Asia session is not clear...

The euro snapback

The single currency has been most notable for the ever tighter trading ranges that have been in evidence in recent weeks. There was a slight wobble to that yesterday as the single currency gained on a story suggesting that the ECB...

Election countdown

We start a new month and quarter, which is likely to be increasingly taken over by the impending Presidential election in the US, something which the market has largely managed to ignore up to now. To this end, the US employment report, due for release at the end of this week...


Moving on from the Fed

The reaction seen in currency markets yesterday to respective central bank policy decisions was instructive of the change in dynamics that we’re seeing. The BoJ enacted a number of changes to its policy regime...

Bank of Japan runs out of road

The Bank of Japan delivered a whole heap of nothing at its policy meeting today, although some adjustments were made to its policy framework. If you take the time to read through these measures, then the impression is of a central bank that has largely lost the monetary plot...

Sceptical equities

There was a definite yield differentiator on yesterday moves against the US dollar, which was generally in retreat. Those gaining the most were those with the highest interest rates, such as the South African Rand...
