          24.04.2017 - FXTM Research Analyst Lukman Otunuga said: "Although this risk-on sentiment could support the Euro in the short term, upside gains may face obstacles if uncertainty starts to mount once again ahead of the second round of voting on 7 May. While expectations remain somewhat elevated over Macron becoming the next French President, the live threat of an unexpected Trump-style victory by Marine Le Pen could still expose the Euro to downside shocks."

              21.04.2017 - Lukman Otunuga, analyst at the currency broker FXTM, gives his view: Sterling attracted a school of sellers on Friday, following the disappointing 1.8% decline in UK retail sales in March that rekindled fears of Brexit impacting the UK economy. With wage growth lagging behind inflation, concerns may continue to heighten over the longevity of the UK’s prized consumer-driven economic growth. The pound remains gripped by the Brexit developments as they continue moving forward and heightened political uncertainty created from the snap general election shocker should

                20.04.2017 - "With anticipation likely to heighten ahead of the scheduled 25 May conference when Opec and non-Opec oil producers will meet, oil price sensitivity could become a dominant theme moving forward," says FXTM Research Analyst Lukman Otunuga. "Although Opec remains optimistic that production cuts with non-members may uplift oil prices, the resurgence of US shale continues to sabotage the cartel's efforts to stabilize the saturated markets."

"[However] the ongoing uncertainty over Brexit's direction is still enough motivation to maintain a negative mindset towards the pound. Investors are likely to continue utilising sell-on rally opportunities in the cable, when the pair climbs near $1.25 with this being the mindset traders have exploited for months."

During his campaign, Trump accused Fed chair Janet Yellen of being "political" and "doing what Obama wants her to do", by keeping rates at zero, but now he likes a low-interest rate policy and may reappoint Yellen to a new four-year term, Sayed said.

The source behind this wave of risk aversion is the uncertainty gravitating around the pending Trump-Xi summit which investors will be paying heavy attention towards. With participants already noticeably jittery, any potential complications in the meeting could accelerate the flight to safety ultimately elevating Gold’s price further.
