The Guardian
20.11.2017 - Lukman Otunuga, research analyst at FXTM, fears that Angela Merkel’s failure to form a new government could drive markets lower. With this bombshell development heightening concerns over political instability in Europe’s largest economy and sparking speculation of fresh elections, the Euro may be in store for further punishment. Although Europe’s encouraging macro fundamentals may offer some background support to the Euro long term, political risk has the ability to trigger further selloffs in the shorter term.

    17.11.2017 - Lukman Otunuga, a research analyst at the foreign exchange broker FXTM, said: “I find it remarkable and somewhat frightening how, no matter how much bitcoin is pummelled by sellers, it simply bounces back even stronger. “Will bitcoin hit $10,000 before year end? This is the question every investor is asking.”

      17.11.2017 - “While investor caution and geopolitical tensions may support gold bulls, bears remain inspired by the mounting expectations of higher U.S. interest rates,” said Lukman Otunuga, research analyst at FXTM.   “It is becoming increasingly clear that a catalyst is needed for the next major move,” he said. “Technical traders will continue to pay attention to how prices react around the pivotal $1,280 level.”

        17.11.2017 - “With investor jitters rising ahead of South Africa rating review by S&P Global and Moody’s agencies next week, further downside could be on the cards,” Lukman Otunuga, research analyst at FXTM, said in a note.

          15.11.2017 - The data - the inflation figures in particular - was seen as negative for the dollar. Lukman Otunuga, research analyst at FXTM, said: Sellers immediately attacked the dollar on Wednesday after U.S. consumer prices marginally increased by 0.1% in October – the smallest gain witnessed in three months. Although the 0.1% increase in consumer prices was in line with market expectations, it continues to highlight how stubbornly low inflation in the United States remains a recurrent theme.

            15.11.2017 - Lukman Otunuga, research analyst at FXTM, says the pound could suffer if the wage figures are particularly bad. He writes: Although Britain’s unemployment rate is at a 42-year low, the buzzkill remains, that little sign of rising pay growth continues to weigh heavily on sentiment. If average earnings struggle to pick up, consumers are likely to continue feeling the squeeze, especially when considering how inflation remains at a five-and-a-half year high, at 3%.

              14.11.2017 - “It is becoming increasingly clear that the dollar has become sensitive to expectations of [President Donald] Trump moving forward with the tax plan, with any negative news on the developments exposing the currency to downside risks,” wrote Lukman Otunuga, FXTM’s chief market strategist.

                13.11.2017 - “The price action suggests that sentiment towards the Pound remains bearish, despite November’s rate hike,” Lukman Otunuga, research analyst at FXTM in London, said in a note. “Further downside is likely to be on the cards, on the back of political jitters and Brexit risk,” he said.

                  13.11.2017 - “With the greenback becoming increasingly sensitive to expectations of proposed U.S. tax reforms, any positive, or negative, news on these developments has the ability to spark volatility,” said Lukman Otunuga, research analyst at FXTM.

                    13.11.2017 - Lukman Otunuga, research analyst at FXTM, says the ‘mounting political uncertainty’ in the UK gripped the currency markets today. The Sunday Times newspaper reported over the weekend, that as many as 40 Conservative MPs have agreed to sign a letter of no-confidence in Theresa May. Although this was eight short of the signatures needed to trigger a formal leadership challenge, this is likely to add to the bucket load of uncertainty, translating into more pain for the British Pound.

                      13.11.2017 - Hussein Sayed, chief market strategist at FXTM, says all of this “creates much frustration amongst investors seeking clarity on Brexit negotiations”. “With May’s position being potentially at risk and no significant progress after six rounds of talks with EU, sterling may come under increased pressure in the next couple of days,” he said.

                        13.11.2017 - Hussein Sayed, chief market strategist at FXTM, says sterling is suffering from Theresa May’s weak position: Sterling fell more than 0.5% early Monday, after the Sunday Times reported yesterday that 40 Conservative Party MPs agreed to sign a letter of no confidence in the Prime Minister, Theresa May. While this remains short of the 48 votes needed to force a new leadership, it still creates much frustration amongst investors seeking clarity on Brexit negotiations.

                          13.11.2017 - “We have seen similar steep falls in Bitcoin throughout the year -- specifically in June and September -- but every time a considerable decline occurs, new investors jump in to experience the new asset class,” Hussein Sayed, chief market strategist at ForexTime Ltd., a currency broker that uses the brand FXTM, wrote in a note Monday.

                              09.11.2017 - “With concerns rising over possible delays in the U.S tax reforms, equity bears could make an unwelcome appearance, consequently exposing global stocks to downside risks,” said Lukman Otunuga, research analyst at FXTM. “Investors should also keep in mind that geopolitical tensions and political risk in the background, have the ability spark risk aversion.”

                                08.11.2017 - "Sellers have exploited the unsettling combination of political uncertainty in the UK and lingering concerns over the Brexit negotiations to attack the British pound," said Lukman Otunuga, a research analyst at FXTM in London.

                                  07.11.2017 - "Conflicts within the Middle East are becoming a major influencer on energy markets, and a further surge in [oil] prices will likely be due to political risk," said Hussein Sayed, chief market strategist at trading platform FXTM.

                                    03.11.2017 - “The fairly muted reaction (to the data) suggests that investors may be redirecting energy and attention elsewhere. Thursday’s dovish rate hike has not only encouraged sellers to pummel sterling but has also heavily bruised buying sentiment towards the currency,” said Lukman Otunuga, an analyst at FXTM. “With the bias towards the pound currently tilted to the downside, any appreciation could be viewed as ... an opportunity for bears to begin fresh rounds of selling.”

                                      03.11.2017 - Lukman Otunuga, a research analyst at FXTM, suggested it was that figure which contributed to weakness in the dollar. Digging deeper into the report, the key culprit behind the dollar selloff was most likely average monthly earnings, which remained flat in October. "With tepid wage growth fuelling concerns that inflation could remain depressed for extended periods, the markets may start debating how often the Fed raises rates in 2018. "On the bright side, the unemployment rate dropped to a 17-year low at 4.1 per cent, after the hurricane disruptions."
