09.02.2017 - “In this period of uncertainty, political risk and market jitters, gold remains a trader’s best companion,” said Lukman Otunuga, research analyst at FXTM. “Risk aversion remains rife across the financial markets, while developments in the United States and globally have created tension consequently boosting appetite for safe-haven investments.” Year to date, gold futures have gained more than 7%. “While the prospects of higher U.S. interest rates this year may pressure gold in the longer term, this yellow metal has risen to prominence in the short

02.02.2017 - Nevertheless, FXTM analyst Lukman Otunuga blamed the current nervousness on the stocks markets on "Trump's repeated verbal assaults." And "with the clash of optimism and fear fuelling global markets rather than fundamentals, extreme levels of volatility may be expected across the board moving forward," he said.

24.01.2017 - "Sellers swiftly exploited the lack of clarity in the (inauguration) speech regarding the proposed fiscal stimulus measures," said Lukman Otunuga, an analyst at FXTM, predicting more trouble ahead for the greenback.

18.01.2017 - "The rising anxiety and uncertainty ahead of Donald Trump's inauguration this coming Friday has exposed the greenback to heavy losses," said FXTM Research analyst Lukman Otunuga. "With optimism slowly fading over the series of interest rate hikes under Trump and the lack of clarity provided on the proposed fiscal stimulus measures weighing on sentiment, the dollar may find itself vulnerable to further losses," he added.

09.01.2017 - FXTM research analyst Lukman Otunuga added the pound faced a drastic decline this week, amid conflicting reports over the government's Brexit strategy. "With the battle of words between politicians on how the government had a 'muddled thinking' over Brexit adding to the uncertainty, sterling should be destined to sink lower this week," he said. "It should be kept in mind that uncertainty remains the name of the game when dealing with the pound and such should make the weakness a recurrent theme."

15.12.2016 - FXTM chief market strategist Hussein Sayed said the latest dollar rally was a significant milestone in the greenback's quest to reach parity with the euro. "Euro/dollar today made its first attempt to test the key support level at $1.0460, and if the pair succeeded in breaking below, we expect to see a sharp selloff as many stop losses are placed below this key level and the parity could then become a matter of time," he said.

13.12.2016 - FXTM research analyst Lukman Otunuga said the yellow metal was rapidly sliding towards 10-month lows around $1,156 as heightened speculation of a US rate hike encourage investors to offload the commodity. "Gold remains fundamentally bearish and any appreciations in prices could be seen as a technical bounce. From a technical perspective, there have been consistently lower lows and lower highs. A decisive breakdown below $1,150 could spark a further selloff towards $1,140 in the coming weeks."

06.12.2016 - "While the short-term gains in the euro are very impressive, it may be too early to gauge the impacts of Sunday's referendum results with more time needed in the New Year to digest the reality," said FXTM research analyst Lukman Otunuga. "There still exists a layer of uncertainty over the next steps Italy may take and such could encourage the European Central Bank to extend its quantitative easing programme at December's policy meeting."

05.12.2016 - "With fears mounting over the 'No' camp creating further turmoil for Italian banks, the rising uncertainty could rapidly erode risk sentiments towards the euro," said FXTM research analyst Lukman Otunuga. "Investors' anxiety continues to rise over Sunday's referendum results negatively impacting Italy's membership of the European Union with euro weakness potentially becoming a dominant theme till year end."

02.12.2016 - Jameel Ahmad, chief market analyst at FXTM, said discontent towards political classes perceived to be part of the establishment posed a real danger to equity markets. "Political instability is a threat that investors can no longer afford to ignore in the developed world," he told IBTimes UK. "There are elevated concerns that anti-establishment parties around Europe have probably taken encouragement from the recent victories from the anti-establishment in both the UK and the US."

02.12.2016 - FXTM's chief market strategist, Hussein Sayed, said Opec's first cut since 2008 finally signalled to the market its members can put their political conflicts aside and strike a deal. "When many thought that Opec had no more influence on oil prices, Wednesday's events proved them wrong. If oil prices traded in the range of $50-$60, [US] shale [production] isn't likely to return in massive levels. However, if prices spiked above $60, then the shale industry will return as a major player to rebalance prices."

30.11.2016 - However, the greenback was 0.51% lower against the Canadian dollar, fetching CAD$1.3364, but FXTM research analyst Lukman Otunuga said the slight drop is unlikely to last for much longer. "With expectations cemented over the Federal Reserve raising US rates in December, bullish investors still remain in control with the dollar expected to remain buoyed," he said.

05.11.2016 - FXTM Vice President of Market Research Jameel Ahmad said oil prices would have a further negative impact if Donald Trump wins the US Presidential election next week. “Donald Trump becoming the US President could result in growth forecasts being downgraded at least in the short term due to investor uncertainty, which will in theory weaken the demand for commodities like oil and weigh on the valuation of oil,” he said in a statement.

21.10.2016 - Commenting on sterling early on Friday morning, Lukman Otunuga of FXTM said: "It is becoming clear that Sterling has been enveloped by political uncertainty with hard Brexit jitters ensuring prices remain depressed. Although UK data continues to point to some economic stability, Sterling may be destined for further declines as uncertainty entices bears to install repeated rounds of selling."

21.10.2016 - Forex Time Research Analyst Lukman Otunuga said the 2017 Budget uplifted sentiment on Malaysia's economy as it offered some clarity on how the nation would tackle the new year. "The key topics revolved around government spending to accelerate growth, boost investments for small and midcap businesses, and reduce the budget deficit. "Malaysia remains on a quest to reclaiming economic stability and as such, had displayed within the budget a theme to bolster unity and economic growth," he said.

17.10.2016 - FXTM research analyst Lukman Otunuga said there might be optimism over a freeze deal in November, but Opec and Russia continue to pump at record output which questions the effectiveness of the pending deal. "Although major oil producers may be commended on their ability to exploit oils sensitivity to create sharp boosts in prices, this could come at a heavy price if investors are left empty-handed. From a technical standpoint, WTI bears could make an appearance if sellers can conquer the $49.50 support."
