The UK economy will grow faster than expected this year as it recovers from the Covid pandemic, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) has said. Economic prospects for rich and poor nations have diverged more due to differing access to Covid vaccines, it said. It has upgraded growth forecasts for developed economies. But the outlook for […]

The knock-on for the economy and workplaces, including the NHS, could be huge, ministers are being warned.

Inflation fears grow as UK factory prices surge
June 23, 2021

Cost pressures on UK firms have gone up at a record level, suggesting that the current surge in consumer prices may be more than just a blip. A closely watched survey, produced by IHS Markit/CIPS, showed input costs rose at the fastest rate for 13 years. And inflation of prices charged by firms hit its […]

To start the week I currently have no live positions, however one currency beginning to catch my eye is sterling. This is mainly due to the fact that the virus data is beginning to slow down suddenly, and people are starting to think the UK could be finally starting to head towards heard immunity. This […]

Nonfarm Payrolls came in stronger than consensus on Friday, however this seemed to be priced in already as we didn’t see a significant reaction off the back of those numbers. With EURUSD seeing little movement, I decided to me cash in a small profit at 1.1830 feeling that remaining all square as we entered the […]

I stated on Monday I would be looking to enter a short position in EURUSD, which I have now entered today as it started to break below the 2020 lows of 1.1853. However, we then saw slightly weaker ISM figures come out of the US, but the lack of momentum in the reversal has convinced […]

To start off this week I will remain all square, as we look to build up to a data driven end to the week with EUR CPI and the obvious Nonfarm Payrolls. I will be looking to hopefully sell the rallies in EURUSD with weaker numbers expected out of Europe. Also I am beginning to […]

I started the week buying GBPJPY at 152.65, and as expected we saw a strong bounce in sterling crosses through the week helping drive GBPJPY up to 155.00. And this allowed me to raise my stop to 154.20 Wednesday afternoon to protect a healthy profit. Unfortunately, the hawkish tone beginning to come out of other […]

To kick off this week we had GBPJPY trade down to its lowest point since early May at 151.50. However we have seen a solid bounce in the pair back up to the 152.00 level, and this seems to be off the back of USDJPY moving higher, from rising US 10yr yields. So I have […]

Earlier this week we saw strong CPI numbers come out of the UK, however this was quickly overshadowed by the FED last night as they released some surprisingly hawkish comments towards tapering. This caused a correction in the USD and drove its crosses lower, with cable now trading around the 1.3940 level. In turn this […]

Once again we are coming off another fairly quiet week in the FX market, which seems to be the trend as of late. We have seen Boris Johnson announce a months delay to the full lifting of lockdown restrictions. This seemed to be priced in for sterling as we have not seen a whole lot […]

We are coming of a fairly quiet week for markets last week, with slightly weaker NFP numbers coming in on Friday. In my opinion I see these figures putting further pressure on the USD as we head into next week. We saw the support in cable hold at 1.4090 hold and now bounce back up […]

We have seen a fairly quiet start to the week, as we are coming off a bank holiday weekend here in the UK. It reflected in my GBPJPY trade which started off quiet, however sterling crosses have seen a slight fall over the last 24 hours. As we saw cable suffer to break through that […]

We have not seen too much come out in terms of data so far this week, however my long of GBPJPY has started to come into effect this afternoon. After a fairly quiet start to the week in the pair, its now starting to rise sharply to last weeks highs of 154.80. One of the […]

Last Friday we saw a very interesting end to the week, as UK PMI and Retail Sales were both strong beating out consensus. However Lagarde’s comments in the afternoon seemed to prevent any further rise in sterling as we went into the weekend. Maurice highlighted how doses of our vaccination jabs could be effective against […]
