The Telegraph
27.03.2017 - FXTM Vice President of Market Research Jameel Ahmad points out that investors have priced in "huge premiums" into the financial markets following the night Trump was declared victorious in the US election based on his campaign promises. However, he says Trump's actions speak louder than words. "This could be a turning point and investors will need to monitor how the markets react as trading continues to get underway for the new week."

    The Guardian
    27.03.2017 - FXTM chief market Strategist Hussein Sayed says traders are reacting to the Republican’s fumbled attempt to replace Obamacare. The lesson learned last week is that a Congress controlled by the Republicans doesn’t necessarily mean the President will be able to pass laws or his negotiation may work in business deals. Unfortunately for him, it seems politics is going to be a different type of game that requires a different form of art.

          27.03.2017 - Hussein Sayed, FXTM’s chief market strategist, said the selloff for U.S. stocks is probably just getting started. “If you believe that Trump’s honeymoon is over and last week’s experience is just a guide on what to expect next, I believe markets will sell off sharply, probably up to 10% correction,” he said in a Monday note.

            24.03.2017 - "While Trump has threatened that without a vote to the health-care bill he will move on to other agenda's, markets may interpret a potential failure today as something that could create some headwinds for the pending tax reforms and infrastructure spending," said Lukman Otunuga, research analyst at FXTM, before the bill was pulled.

              23.03.2017 - "I'm not calling for a major correction as of yet, but for investors who want to remain invested largely in equities, I suggest it's a good time to think about buying a protection to protect from a market downturn," said Hussein Sayed, chief market strategist at FXTM.

                22.03.2017 - "The bias towards oil is turning increasingly bearish and the fading optimism over the effectiveness of OPEC's supply cut deal has enticed bears to install repeated rounds of selling," said Lukman Otunuga, research analyst at FXTM. "WTI crude may be in store for further punishment moving forward with production in the United States rising consistently and the inflated inventories simply counteracting the efforts of OPEC to stabilize the oil markets," he said.

                      20.03.2017 - FXTM chief market strategist Hussein Sayed said: Sterling is still holding tight, thanks to the Fed neutral hike and BoE’s Kristin Forbes who voted for a rate hike. With inflation on the rise some MPC members believe that a rate hike would be needed sooner than later, but how many MPC members will join Ms. Forbes remains uncertain. Brexit headlines will become the major force moving the pound the days ahead, and the harsher stance EU takes the more pressure might be felt.

The greenback [US dollar] is falling while everything else is in green today after the Federal Reserve delivered on its promise to hike rates by 25 basis points. While this move was widely expected, many market participants were positioned for a more hawkish language and an upgrade in economic projections which didn’t happen

                                  14.03.2017 - “With the threat of an independence vote for Scotland adding to the horrible Brexit mixture, one can understand why the buying sentiment towards sterling remains frighteningly low,” said FXTM research analyst Lukman Otunuga in an note. If the pound falls below $1.21, then it’s likely sellers will drive it even lower, to $1.20, he said. “The great unknowns over the impact Brexit may have on the U.K. economy could ensure that the pound remains depressed for prolonged periods,” Otunuga said.

                                      13.03.2017 - FXTM chief market strategist Hussein Sayed reckons it’s a case of “buy the rumor, sell the news”. Investors are almost convinced that the Fed will move forward in tightening monetary policy, with speculators pricing in 89% chance of a rate hike according to CME’s FedWatch Tool. Friday’s robust non-farm payrolls report removed all doubts and now even skeptical investors believe that three rate hikes are the base scenario for 2017.

"If the economic projections of the FOMC members are bullish and suggest further U.S. rate hikes this year then the greenback (dollar index) may charge back above 102.00 in the short to medium term."
