We Could do With A Little Less Drama From The White House

Categories: AUD, CAD, EUR, GBP, Markets, News, USD
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s comment about “White House drama,” after the uproar about President Trump leaking classified information to the Russians, was ignored. President Trump is under attack (again) for reportedly asking the ex-FBI Director Comey to end the inquiry into Michael Flynn, Trump’s first pick for National Security Advisor. Arguably, the US dollar sell-off because of Washington politics’ is a tad overdone.  View article >

UK Inflation Pressures Send GBP Exchange Rates Lower

Categories: AUD, CAD, EUR, GBP, Markets, News, NZD, USD

Sterling

GBP/USD 1 Week Chart
The Pound (GBP) slipped against the majority of its peers on Tuesday as the UK’s latest CPI data showed that inflation skyrocketed last month. According to the ONS, inflation jumped from 2.3% to 2.7% in April, outpacing initial estimates that it would rise to 2.6%. While an uptick in inflation is usually welcomed by investors, there are fears that consumer spending will come under pressure if it continues to run hot, especially as the Bank of England (BoE) has indicated that it is willing to overlook the rise in inflation for the time being.

Loose Lips Sink Ships and Boost EURUSD

Categories: AUD, CAD, EUR, GBP, Markets, News, USD
It is a bit of a headscratcher move. Yet, traders used the excuse that President Trump may have leaked classified information to Russia, to buy EURUSD.  The single currency climbed from 1.0975 to 1.1053 at the New York open. It should be noted, as the New York Times reported, in an uncharacteristically balanced article on Trump, the President has the authority to declassify any information. View article >

Commodity-Correlated Currencies Climb

Sterling

GBP/USD 1 Week Chart
The Pound (GBP) got off to a mixed start this week, rising against its more stable peers but beginning to slip against its high yield cousins as commodity prices rebounded. Sterling was also weakened by a new report that suggested that UK workers will face a pay squeeze this year as average wage growth is expected to fall to a three-year low of 1%, well behind the current rate of inflation at 2.3%.

Oil Rally Lifts Loonie

Categories: AUD, CAD, EUR, GBP, Markets, News, USD
The Canadian dollar got a boost overnight.  Saudi Arabia and Russia agreed to extend production cuts beyond the end of 2017 to March 2018.  They pledged to do “whatever it takes” (Mario Draghi said “hey, that’s my line) to reduce global inventories to their 5-year average.  As usual, the reaction of US shale producers will be the monkey wrench in the plans.

Make the Most of Japan’s Spring Time Charm: Yen Great Value Against Korean Won, Taiwan Dollar, Pound and Euro

In the four-weeks leading up to last Friday’s close (May 12th), the Japanese yen had been one of the world’s worst performing currencies against the US dollar, falling 4.3% within that time. The yen’s weakness during that period marks one hell of a turnaround from the four-weeks immediately prior, in which the yen was one of the world’s strongest currencies, gaining 3.9% against the dollar.
