Having been away for a week, not looking at a price or even the web, I will not delve into analysing the fundamentals today. However, I can see the economic releases and discuss the effect/outcome. The biggest move I can immediately see is in the USD, their manufacturing fell into negative (not surprising) and their […]

A slightly weaker US GDP and home sales kept the lid on any bounce in the stock market overnight. A flat night there and in commodities it was bullish in energy and metals, mixed in agriculture, whilst bond yields continued to rise. This page will show you the global 10yr bond yield with the rises […]

As indicated yesterday the VIX is creeping up. This is a sign of increased concern of a fall in prices of stocks. Its only at 14.8 but historically 14 is the level that there is an issue. I think that level could be 18 now given the moves of 2008/2009. Still, it’s a trend worth […]

Been around as long as I have you get to hear all sorts of crazy conspiracy theories, like stoploss hunters. Whilst that is the funniest of all, all of them seem rather ridiculous to me. One you see often is manipulation of data. This one I have heard since the 90’s. Recently it’s been focused […]

Was a mixed bag in the commodity arena but gold bounced again (the cat still lives) on the back of Moody’s (The number 2 ratings agency) threatening to downgrade the US. There was bargain hunters also in the currency markets as a result of the US dollar shift down on the news. Whilst we had […]

I am not going to go into the budget, there is plenty of articles, spin and some utter bulldust (Jessica Irvine, I am looking at you when I say that). I will say that it did surprise me in the lack of pork barrelling and I have to give them that. Swanee has constantly crowed […]

Twitter is quickly becoming the bane of a trader’s life. Just after 3am this morning a “tweet” went out that quickly went around Wall St as a rumour that QE3 was ending. This started large scale buying and selling in the markets. Plosser (a US Fed President and member of FOMC) then backed it up […]

Forex Market Analysis brought to you by David Long, Proprietary Trading Manager at Knowledge to Action Whilst the equity markets were reasonably quiet and flat to positive at the end of the day, the currency markets had some major volatility.
