  1. FXTM Partners Hosts Two Events in Vietnam with Terrific Results On 25 and 26 February, 2017, FXTM Partners organized two fantastic forex events in Vietnam. Firstly, a panel discussion co-hosted with Vietstock.vn – the leading information portal on finance and securities concerning the Vietnamese market. Jameel Ahmad, FXTM’s VP of Market Research and Corporate Development, presented the “Effects of Macroeconomic factors on the Commodity & Currency Market in 2017” at the event which took place in Ho Chi Minh City at the Metropole City Hotel. Highlight topics included: - Donald Trump, Brexit and other political uncertainties driving the markets. - OPEC and Non-OPEN members collaborating for the price of Oil. - The state of Gold as a safe haven. - The strengthening of the US Dollar. - And much more! This was followed by a lively panel discussion which featured Ahmad, who was asked about the best performing and highest fluctuating commodities and currencies in 2017. He also had the opportunity to discuss some FXTM investment and educational services, which attendees were eager to learn about. The event concluded with a Q&A and a chance to network with local investors, traders and general forex enthusiasts. The following day, a 2-hour seminar at the same venue featured Ahmad’s Market Outlook for 2017. He discussed the driving force of political uncertainty in the markets and the effects of world events on emerging markets such as Vietnam, among other topics. Both events had a fantastic turnout, proving that a large population in Vietnam are enthusiastic about forex and investing in the markets. Still not trading with a leading broker?

  3. Forextime.com Daily Market Analysis Oil looks to break out Over the last few months hedge funds and traders have been seen placing large bets that OPEC will indeed come through with its production cuts and oil will accordingly jump higher, so far it has been positive on the production cut front, and we are starting to see oil markets looking like they may trend again - instead of the ranging behaviour we have seen over the last few months. One thing worth noting in all of this is how important Russia is, given that it just become the world's largest producer of oil as it overtook Saudi Arabia. But so far so good as 90% of the production cuts that were outlined have been implemented. However, US inventory data has been not positive for oil traders as since Trump has taken to office there has been a build up of supply, something that many were expecting not to happen. Despite all of the pros and cons oil has looked to jump back to life. The 20 day moving average was key for oil as it looked to trend slowly up the chart, it had a few breakdowns previously but seems to still respect the level and as of now is sitting just below resistance at 54.36. What will be key here will be if oil can push above this level and look to extend higher; breaking out of the ranging phase and looking to trend again as it has historically been so good at. Above the current resistance level the next level will be found at 55.19 which was where the market looked to extend to earlier in December after the OPEC cuts were announced I would expect to see this area already priced in with the cuts, but it would also be pushed higher if we saw a reduction in US oil inventory data. One of the other interesting commodities as of late has been silver, as it has charged up the chart much like gold on the back of speculation around Trump uncertainty. While not as popular as gold it has been a stand out performer in recent months and should not be discounted as it's prone to large movements on the c harts. And with preliminary GDP and unemployment claims still on the horizon for the US economy this week there is certainly room for further large movements. Also the USD weakness could be something that looks to push silver higher in the short term. From a technical point of view silver has been quite bullish as of late, with large movements upwards since December in a constantly trending pattern. The 20 day moving average has largely been shadowing silver on the charts, with large bearish movements being pushed back by the silver bulls upon touching this level. The 200 day moving average has also been heavily respected, but the focus right now is on resistance at 18.091 with the market treating this like the level to beat. Long tails on the candles are also pointing that the bulls have not given up and further extensions higher may indeed be quite possible. More Info Here By Alex Gurr, Guest Analyst

  7. Forextime.com Daily Market Analysis AUD leads Asian trading session The Australian dollar is taking the spotlight as the Reserve Bank of Australia is set to have its decision about the current interest rate levels, and the market thus far is not expecting anything much from the RBA. With the interest rate held at 1.50% it still remains one of the highest in the developed world, but the Australian economy is currently waiting to see what the outcome will be from the Trump effect, and while things have been rocky it does seem that the economy is starting to look slightly better. However, yesterdays retail sales showed that it's not all smooth sailing as it dipped to -0.1% m/m (0.3% exp), this result lends weight to the fact that the RBA may touch on the consumer economy not picking up as expected. But the real weight will be focused I feel on the economy as a whole and the commodity sector which has been recovering in recent months in anticipation of the global economy picking up. Markets have been very much a fan of commodity currencies in recent weeks, with global risk appetite picking up the demand for yield has lead to large jumps in the NZD and of course the AUD, with the AUD looking very much the stronger of the two. So far the AUDUSD has been on a very bullish trend and it certainly has not seemed to lose any steam at present. The 20 day moving average has acted as dynamic support as it has moved up the chart, and this looks likely to be the first real test as comes under pressure. After all markets can't remain bullish forever, especially when it comes to FX markets. At the same time resistance at 0.7680 has so far stifled the bulls in there run up the charts, but the recent bearish movement has found strong bullish sentiment so expectations are building for further movements past this level onto the next major level at 0.7730. Global up turn has so far been talked about, but not come through just yet. However, oil markets have been looking more and more uncertain when it comes to direction for the majority of traders. One thing that does remain clear is that oil is coming under further pressure in the markets to find some direction. At present the 20 day moving average continues to act as dynamic support and is pushing the bears out of the market as it looks to take on the key level of resistance at 54.46. As the two come together expectations will build for a bullish breakout, or if we had a reversal we could see some strong bearish pressure. Pressure will build though, and the bulls have the advantage in this sort of scenario and fundamentals starting to lean in their favour. More Info Here By Alex Gurr, Guest Analyst

  9. Forextime.com Daily Market Analysis Equity markets hit new heights Equity markets have been the major benefactor market movements today with the Dow finally breaking above the 20K mark for the first time. The S&P 500 has also rallied heavily today and is just shy of the magic 2300 mark which I've talked about in previous articles - which is of course a big benefactor of the Trump effect which is going through the markets at present. 2017 could very much be the year of the bull, but it will take time and a wait and see approach to see if it all comes true, as it is very much early days for equity markets in the new year. Equity markets in the US still have hurdles to jump through from a fundamental point of view as unemployment claims is due out tomorrow, and consumer sentiment will also be released the following day after that. All of these have the power to impact equity markets sharply, but the spotlight will most certainly fall on anything that Trump has to say at present. Right now resistance for the S&P 500 is around the 2300 mark, with the market looking to move sharply further higher if given the right opportunities. This key psychological level is likely hold in the short term, but for any movements higher a move to 2350 and 2400 is likely to be the next major levels of resistance in the long run, as it's very much uncharted territory. Any movements lower are likely to find dynamic support on the 20 day moving average, which continues to trend up with the market and is likely to be the first line of defence of any brave bears do come into the market. The New Zealand economy has managed to hit rock star economy status as usual, with the CPI figures coming in better than expected at 0.4% Q/Q (0.3% exp). Helping to push the annual figure to 1.3%; still below the 2% mark but nevertheless moving back in the right direction and something the Reserve Bank of New Zealand will have to take into consideration. Many economists are now expecting that the RBNZ will likely hold rates at steady at present as inflation is lifting, and if it continues to do so though then the RBNZ may even be forced to increase the OCR quicker than anticipated. As previously mentioned the NZDUSD has been very bullish on the charts, and the trend is very much still the markets friend. Expectations still are quite bullish with the results seen today, and with a weaker USD I would expect the NZD to continue to resistance levels at 0.7343 and 0.7402. If it can continue to gather momentum, we could see it breach through the 80 cent level, however the market may look to claw back some gains well before then and the Trump effect on the USD can be quite strong as well.

  11. Forextime.com Daily Market Analysis Yen continues to strengthen Despite all the global economic indicators and central bank movements the Yen continues to be one of the major players in the FX market. So far the Bank of Japan has been keen to hold off any further action as the market continues to offer up a stronger USD, which in turn helps push their agenda of weakening the exchange rate. While not ever country in the G8 is in agreement with the tactics taken by Japan previously, this lends weight to the US economy forcing the changes, and it's likely we will continue to see strong fluctuations in the USDJPY. The only major thing this week on the Japanese side is the CPI data, with market expecting below average CPI compared to what Abenomics has so far promised - so there is potential for movement if it beats estimates. On the charts the USDJPY continues to show case a strong trending mentality. So far the bears looking to be taking control and forcing it down the chart in a strong channel which has so far faced very little resistance. The 20 day moving average has also been acting as dynamic resistance in the market so far, preventing any further movements higher and I would expect this to remain the case until USD strength looks to continue on a global scale. Any movements lower however, are likely to find support quite strong at 112.442 and 111.688 - with market expectations looking very strong after the recent reversal in the previous days. Regardless of all the global attention the US economy has been getting the S&P 500 has so far been one of the largest benefactors with it set to make a large move if technical patterns are anything to go off. New home sales and consumer sentiment are likely to help drive the market in the coming days, and the market will be looking for further positive news to help push the S&P 500 higher, despite it touching record highs as of late. Technically speaking the S&P 500 is looking very strong as of late from a bullish perspective, with the 20 day moving average acting as dynamic support all the way up on the daily chart. The tightness of the current band on the chart gives weight to the fact that a breakout is set to occur and I would be looking at the bulls for them to take control. However, resistance at 2278 continues to impede the bulls from rallying higher and may cause further issues in the coming days until we see further positive data.

  13. Forextime.com Daily Market Analysis The Week ahead: Politics to take center stage Donald Trump is finally in power, a new era has arrived, and his policy plans in the first couple of weeks will override fundamentals. Markets spent more than two months pricing in growth policies promises, lowers corporate taxes, and deregulations, now it is time to deliver as markets will no more move on words but actions. U.S. dollar bulls were not really impressed in the new Presidents’ inauguration speech, as it was focused more on protectionism and lacked any concrete plans to drive growth. Repealing Obamacare, building a Mexican border wall, and withdrawing from the Trans Pacific Partnership are not the kind of news investors want to hear, they need to know when pro-growth fiscal policies will come into play and more importantly whether congress will approve them. The days and weeks ahead will likely see volatility increase in equities, fixed income, and currency markets. Investors are already buying exchange-traded products that track volatility, this explains the level of expected uncertainty going forward. The week ahead will also see U.S. earnings season move into high gear with more than 20% of S&P 500 companies reporting fourth quarter results including Alphabet, Amazon, Microsoft, McDonald’s, Verizon, Johnson & Johnson, Boeing, EBay, and AT&T. According to Factset, 61% of the companies that reported results so far managed to beat profit estimates, while only 47% managed to beat on revenues. On the U.S. economic data front, all eyes will be on Friday’s U.S. Q4 GDP release. Growth is anticipated to slow significantly from Q3 3.5% to only 2.2%, as net trade expected to turn negative. Homes sales, services PMI’s, trade balance, and durable goods are also on the agenda for next week. It will also be an interesting week for sterling as U.K.’s supreme court will eventually deliver its ruling on Tuesday on whether Prime Minister Theresa May can activate the process for Brexit without parliamentary approval. We highly expect that the court will rule in favor of Parliament’s approval to trigger article 50, but any spike in sterling likely to be short lived.
