  • Financial markets hold up well all things considered

    We have to say; it’s been rather surprising to see markets behaving as they are in the aftermath of Friday’s US jobs report. The monthly employment report came in much stronger than expected, accompanied by an hourly earnings print that was just a little higher than forecast. Audio Update Technical highlights EURUSD Confined to major […]

  • Geopolitical risk and the US jobs report

    A round of softer economic data out of the US on Thursday had invited an initial wave of welcome Dollar selling and risk on flow, before all of it fell apart as geopolitical tension escalated on fear of conflict between Israel and Iran in the Middle East. Audio Update Technical highlights EURUSD Confined to major […]

  • US jobs report preview and market impact

    On Friday, we’ll get the always anticipated monthly employment report out of the US. But this time around, things could get even more exciting given where things stand heading in. Where is that exactly? Wrap-Up Call

  • Counterintuitive price action

    Currency and equity markets are finally back in sync into Thursday, though at the same time, they appear to be in sync but also moving in a counterintuitive direction. Everything we’ve seen of late has been supporting the case for less rate cuts than more in 2024. Audio Update Technical highlights EURUSD Confined to major […]

  • US ADP employment data stand out

    Things are all over the place ahead of the North American open on this Wednesday. Price action hasn’t been all that wild, but we have seen markets moving in a lot of different directions. The Euro and Pound are slightly bid against the US Dollar, while risk correlated FX is under a little pressure. Wrap-Up […]

  • Currencies and stocks out of sync

    We’ve been in this weird period of trading where currencies and stocks are out of sync with one another. Key standouts on Wednesday’s calendar come from Eurozone inflation, US ADP employment, Canada PMI reads, US ISM services PMIs, and Fed speak. Audio Update Technical highlights EURUSD Confined to major consolidation GBPUSD Well supported on dips […]

  • Currencies recover, US equity futures head south

    A round of manufacturing PMI data out of Germany, the Eurozone and UK, all came in better than expected, which has been helping to prop the Euro and Pound into the North American open. We’re getting back to fuller trading conditions today, post the Easter holiday. Wrap-Up Call

  • Are US equities at risk for bearish reversal?

    US economic data continues to come in on the stronger side and market rate odds for a June cut at the Fed have dipped below 60%, which is the lowest June odds print for the year. The currency market has responded as one would expect, with the US Dollar well in demand across the board. […]

  • Fresh record highs for US equity futures and gold

    We’re still in the throes of the thinner Easter holiday trade and market conditions have been rather tame as a result. Currencies haven’t moved all that much, though we have seen some notable movement in some markets. Wrap-Up Call

  • Investor appetite for US Dollar and Stocks

    Market conditions are pretty much exactly where they left off into the end of last week. This makes sense considering many traders around the globe being off the desks for the Easter holiday. Audio Update Technical highlights EURUSD Confined to major consolidation GBPUSD Well supported on dips USDJPY Readying for push to 155 AUDUSD Possible […]
