UK Retail Sales is usually a very decent news to trade but since we are expecting a negative -0.8%, it will be a tough decision to consider buying the pair unless we end up with a positive release. Obviously, if we get a -1.3%, then it may justify our decision to take a sell trade. 4:30 […]
UK Retail Sales is usually a very decent news to trade but with the BOE rate decision coming up in just 2.5 hours unless we get our surprise deviation, it’s best just staying out of the market. Obviously, the current market is going to remain in a wait-and-see pattern, so we should also follow suit […]
UK Services Purchasing Manager Index is usually a very tradable indicator and if we get a strong surprise today, we should see plenty of market reaction. Considering it’s already December, I’d expect to see some pulling back in liquidities, therefore I would use caution with any trade that I take this month. 4:30 am (NY […]
We´ll be getting the Canadian Employment Change release figure along with its monthly GDP figures. As both releases are considered as high-impact, I’d recommend paying attention to both releases before taking a trade. Usually, the first Friday is also Nonfarm Payroll release day, but not this week, so our focus will be squarely on the […]
NZ Retail Sales release is a quarterly release and since it is scheduled during U.S. afternoon it will be the only high impact release at this time. Considering that it’s the Thanksgiving holiday week in the U.S., the market is going to close shop early and volatilities are going to die down. If we do […]
UK Retail Sales is usually a very decent news to trade especially considering recent strength in the GBP despite constant pressure from the US Dollar. With CPI remaining above the 3.0%, I believe GBP is a long hold trade and we may very well see the currency continue its ascension. 4:30am (NY Time) UK Retail Sales […]
The Australian Employment Change release should provide an opportunity to trade the Aussie especially if we were to get our tradable figures. With USD remaining strong against the AUD, any weaker than expected release could drive the AUDUSD pair lower, possibly breaching the current support and push the pair to new multi-month lows. However, if […]
We´ll be getting the Canadian Employment Change release figure along with the US Nonfarm Payroll at the same time. It is never good to just focus on this release or USDCAD pair as the main focus should be on the US NFP release. The market will surely first react to the NFP but there is […]
UK Retail Sales is usually a very decent news to trade and if we were to get a tradable figure, we should see plenty of market reactions. Considering the CPI release earlier this week, if today’s figure also correlates in the same direction, the market could decide to push the long-oversold-plagued-by-Brexit GBP back to a […]
Following IMF’s World Economic Outlook, here are three scenarios for global economy in medium term
For the past few years, the global economy has been oscillating between periods of acceleration (when growth is positive and strengthening) and periods of deceleration (when growth is positive but weakening). After more than a year of acceleration, is the world heading towards another slowdown, or will the recovery persist?
The current upswing in growth and equity markets has been going strong since the summer of 2016. Despite a brief hiccup after the Brexit vote, the acceleration endured not only Donald Trump’s election as US president but the heightening policy uncertainty and geopolitical chaos that he has generated. In response to this apparent resilience, the International Monetary Fund, which in recent years had characterised global growth as the “new mediocre”, upgraded its World Economic Outlook in July.
We´ll be getting the Canadian Employment Change release figure along with the US Nonfarm Payroll at the same time. It is never good to just focus on this release or USDCAD pair as the main focus should be on the US NFP release. However, as we have seen before, if both releases do not conflict, […]
UK Services Purchasing Manager Index is a very good and very tradable release for the GBP, but with recent rise in GBP thwarted by the last FOMC meeting where the Fed raised hope on another rate hike before the end of the year, all attention has been shifted back to the dollar and as a result […]
