    U.K. ETFs Up Despite Resignations of Key Brexit Officials

    Britain's national soccer team is finding their groove with their entry into the semifinals of the World Cup, but the state of their government paints a paradoxical picture as key members leading Britain's efforts to cut ties with the European Union resigned on Monday. Exits by top diplomats like Brexit Secretary David Davis and British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson made headlines, putting British Prime Minister Theresa May's leadership in question with key political figureheads like Jeremy Corbyn responding with indignation. David Davis resigning at such a crucial time shows @Theresa_May has no authority left and is incapable of delivering Brexit.

    Why the US Dollar Fell amid Trade War Jitters

    The US Dollar Index (UUP) posted four consecutive daily declines in the previous week as trade tensions escalated between the US and its trading partners. The interesting thing, however, was that the decline in the US dollar was because of the declining bond yields rather than appreciation of other currencies. The increased positive correlation between the US dollar and the US bond yields was the key driver in the US dollar rally in recent weeks.

    Brexit Has Slowed UK Growth 2.1% So Far: New Study

    As a result of Brexit, the U.K. economy is now 2.1% smaller as of the first quarter of 2018 than it would have been if it stayed in the EU two years ago, according to the report. The major drag on U.K. growth has been a big drop off in tax revenues, slashing them by 23 billion pounds per year.

    Will the Bank of England Push the Pound Lower?

    The British pound (FXB) depreciated 0.95% against the US dollar (UUP) for the week ending June 15 and closed at 1.33. The pound took a backseat as the US and European central bank policy meetings dominated the forex space last week. British equity markets (BWX) posted the fourth consecutive weekly loss in the last 12 weeks, which reflected the global risk-off sentiment.

  • US Dollar Is Dominating the Forex Markets

    US Dollar Is Dominating the Forex Markets

    The US Dollar Index (UUP) managed a sharp recovery last week. The appreciation seemed to be due to tariff announcements instead of the Fed’s hawkish tone after the May FOMC meeting. The only interpretation of the rise in the US dollar would be that investors were seeing trade tensions as a temporary setback to global trade, which could result in a better deal for the US. The US Dollar Index closed for the week ending June 15 at 94.78 and appreciated 1.3%.

  • What’s Driving the British Pound Lower against the US Dollar?

    What’s Driving the British Pound Lower against the US Dollar?

    The British pound (FXB) depreciated against the US dollar (UUP) for the fifth week in the last six weeks as Brexit-related developments and a strengthening US dollar drove it lower. A series of weak economic data coupled with a dovish Bank of England (or BOE) have been causing the pound to slide compared to the US dollar. The economic data reported last week indicated that inflation had grown more slowly than expected, decreasing the possibility of a rate hike from the BOE.

  • What’s Driving the US Dollar Higher?
    Market Realist5 months ago

    What’s Driving the US Dollar Higher?

    The US Dollar Index (UUP) continued to appreciate but did so slowly in the week that ended on May 25. Rising political uncertainty in Europe, seesawing trade negotiations between the United States and China, and the diplomatic tussle between the United States and North Korea had an impact on currency markets in the week.

    Can the US Dollar Continue to Surge Higher?

    Last week, the US dollar (UUP) index bounced back from a minor pullback in the week ended May 11. Both are positive for the US dollar. According to the latest Commitment of Traders report released on May 18 by the Chicago Futures Trading Commission, large speculators and traders have trimmed their short positions on the US dollar index.

  • Could It Be Time to Sell the British Pound?
    Market Realist5 months ago

    Could It Be Time to Sell the British Pound?

    The British pound (FXB) was unchanged against the US dollar (UUP) last week despite the dollar’s rally stalling, possibly due to the BOE’s (Bank of England) move to leave policy rates unchanged. British equity markets (BWX) are enjoying the pound’s weakness and have managed a seventh consecutive positive week, aided by continued positive momentum across global markets. According to the Commodity Futures Trading Commission’s May 11 commitment of traders report, speculators decreased their overall bullish positions on British pound (GBB) by 17,384 contracts last week, to 8,988 contracts from 26,372—the lowest level in two months.

  • What Drove the US Dollar Lower Last Week
    Market Realist5 months ago

    What Drove the US Dollar Lower Last Week

    The US dollar index (UUP) took a breather last week, closing at 92.44, 0.03% higher than its close of 92.41 in the week ended May 4. The US dollar’s three-week rally was interrupted by the weak inflation report published last week, which was preceded by a weak jobs report on May 4. This US dollar slowdown could only be a speed breaker as the Fed remains the only central bank expected to tighten policies in the near term. The recently rejuvenated dollar-bond market correlation could continue supporting the dollar against major developed, developing, and emerging market currencies.

  • Could the Bank of England Postpone Hiking Rates?
    Market Realist5 months ago

    Could the Bank of England Postpone Hiking Rates?

    The British pound (FXB) depreciated 1.8% against the US dollar (UUP) in April, and has depreciated 1.9% so far in May. Weak economic data, dovish statements from the BOE (Bank of England), and a strong US dollar contributed to the slide of the British pound (GBB). Manufacturing and service data published last week was below expectations, leading to a further decline in the pound. A May rate hike, which was largely accepted by markets until the recent turn of events, now seems less probable.

    Dollar Bears Under Pressure as Short Squeeze Continues

    In April, the US dollar index posted one of its best monthly gains (2.0%) since November 2016, and it looks set to continue with the trend this month. The main reason for this appreciation has been a higher positive correlation between the US dollar and bond yields. Rising bond yields increase the US-international bond spread, which increases preference for US bonds as they have better ratings.

  • Will the British Pound Stop Its Downward Slide?

    Will the British Pound Stop Its Downward Slide?

    The British pound (FXB) depreciated by 1.66% against the US Dollar (UUP) for the week ending April 27. The pound (GBB) closed last week at 1.3780, compared to a close of 1.4004 for the week ending April 20. This is the second consecutive weekly loss for the British pound, as traders continued to react to the dovish statement from the Bank of England two weeks ago and last week’s softer GDP data accelerated the pound’s decline.

    Data and Carney Pushed the Pound-US Dollar Lower Last Week

    The British pound (FXB) depreciated 1.7% against the US Dollar (UUP) for the week ending April 20. The pound (GBB) closed the week ending April 20 at 1.40—compared to a close of 1.42 for the week ending April 13. Softer-than-expected retail sales, wage growth, and consumer prices dented investors’ confidence. Bank of England Governor Mark Carney gave a hint that the interest rates don’t need to be increased in May. Carney’s comments, weak data, and the strong US dollar led to the pound’s sharp depreciation the previous week.

  • Will US Dollar Bulls Continue to Dominate This Week?

    Will US Dollar Bulls Continue to Dominate This Week?

    The US dollar (UUP) gained some lost ground last week due to reduced risk aversion, rising bond yields, weak economic data from global peers, and higher commodity prices. The US dollar rallied after bond yields started to rise and the ten-year yield broke past the February 2018 high. Economic data from the US included an acceptable level of retail sales and an optimistic Federal Beige Book. The US Dollar Index closed above 90.0 for the first time in five weeks and posted a weekly gain of 0.65%.

    Why the British Pound Has Continued to Rally

    The British pound (FXB) appreciated by 1.1% against the US dollar (UUP) in the week ended April 13. The rise of the British pound despite soft economic data was because of hawkish comments from the Bank of England, which is expected to increase interest rates soon. While British equity markets (BWX) were impacted by increased trade war concerns, indexes managed to close in positive territory for a third consecutive week.

  • US Dollar Falls after Trump Comments on April 16

    US Dollar Falls after Trump Comments on April 16

    The US dollar (UUP) came under pressure after Donald Trump, in a tweet, accused Russia and China “playing the Currency Devaluation game as the U.S. keeps raising interest rates. Not acceptable!” Trump’s complaint has been interpreted as an attempt to escalate tensions to achieve favorable trade negotiation terms. According to the latest Commitment of Traders report, released on April 13 by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, large speculators and traders have increased their short positions on the US dollar for a third consecutive week. This amount is a combination of the US dollar’s contracts against the combined contracts of the euro (FXE), British pound (FXB), Japanese yen (FXY), Australian dollar (FXA), Canadian dollar (FXC), and Swiss franc.
