New week. Same uncertainty.
Monday 29 July 2019
Decent US GDP data on Friday then more rumblings from Trump and his administration about a weaker US Dollar with renewed attacks on the Fed, along with the ongoing trade talk concerns and, of course, continuing Brexit shambles are all combining to keep markets second-guessing.
Lots of chatter, and more this morning, about No-Deal Brexit plus a firmer data-led Dollar has seen GBPUSD fall to post fresh two-year lows of 1.2335 helped by GBPJPY selling again plus now the usual month-end EURGBP demand. EURGBP buyers are prevailing again as I've been warning and finding some decent dip demand now into 0.8970 with month-end BUBA buying also in play once again and helping to underpin. GBPJPY continues on the back foot with GBP selling generally along with the fragile-risk Yen demand still too.
I remain GBP bearish overall and will continue to rally-sell as my preferred strategy amid all the uncertainty/indecision including Brexit/political fallout.
EURUSD is still holding 1.1100 helped by inherent demand and on the crosses too but rallies still limited. USDJPY remains underpinned on the USD demand generally but still capped by rally sellers poised again around 108.80. USDCHF has also found dip demand again but still capped by EURCHF supply but with the SNB never far away to keep sellers on their toes.
AUDUSD has posted fresh recent lows of 0.6900 amid the general USD demand and remains on the back foot while
USDCAD remains tightly bound with bids building at 1.3150 still.
Fickle Forex markets ever prevailing so be ready with your entry/exit levels and orders as always.
Have a good day/week out there one and all.
