12.02.2018 - “One of the main reasons why I am not concerned that the stock market selloff from last week was a sign of mass panic from investors is because of the limited buying interest in gold, in spite of the heightened stock market volatility,” said Jameel Ahmad, global head of currency strategy & market research at FXTM. “The losses in gold last week can be seen as a positive factor, because it provides more confidence to investors that the selloff in the markets was a correction, and not a sign of panic over the global economy,” he said.

    09.02.2018 - “It has certainly been a chaotic trading week for the global equity markets, amid fears of mounting inflationary pressures and higher interest rates,” FXTM analyst Lukman Otunuga said.

      09.02.2018 - “It is becoming increasingly clear that the yellow metal remains pressured by a stabilizing dollar and rising expectations of higher U.S. interest rates,” said Lukman Otunuga, research analyst at FXTM, in a note. “Investors would usually expect gold to benefit from increased stock market volatility, but this has so far not been the case.” “If speculation continues to increase over developed central banks increasing respective interest rates, gold is at risk to further selling pressure,” Otunuga said.

        08.02.2018 - “While heightened speculations of higher U.K. interest rates could result in further upside for Sterling, gains may face headwinds down the road. The horrible combination of Brexit uncertainty and political drama at home could obstruct the central bank’s efforts to raise rates. An unfavorable situation where the U.K. is unable to secure a Brexit transition deal by the March 22-23 EU summit, could trigger uncertainty — ultimately weighing on the prospect of higher UK interest rates.” — Lukman Otunuga, research analyst at FXTM

          08.02.2018 - What are strategists saying? “Investors across the globe are finding it [a] difficult time currently to decide on whether to buy the recent dips, or to remain on the sidelines until the dust settles,” said Hussein Sayed, chief market strategist at FXTM, in a note. “Speculators may be having some fun trading such a volatile market, but this isn’t true for longer-term investors.”

            07.02.2018 - On the euro, Lukman Otunuga, research analyst at FXTM said: “The bullish sentiment towards the European economy [is] stimulating appetite for the euro.” “From a technical standpoint, the euro-dollar is in the process of technical correction on the daily charts with $1.2300 acting as the level of interest,” he said.

                  06.02.2018 - Hussein Sayed, chief market strategist at FXTM, said: "We have been anticipating a correction for a long time now, but when markets become over-confident, corrections also become steeper. It’s hard to tell how far markets may decline, but given that economic fundamentals remain strong, I think investors will start buying the dips sooner than later."

                    02.02.2018 - “The growing confusion revolving around the Indian government’s view on cryptocurrencies sparked uncertainty, consequently exposing bitcoin to downside risks,” said Lukman Otunuga, research analyst at FXTM. “Price action suggests that bears are clearly in control, with further losses on the cards as jitters over regulation erode investor appetite further,” he added.

                      02.02.2018 - "It has certainly been a horribly bearish trading week for bitcoin, thanks to heightened fears of a regulatory crackdown," said Lukman Otunuga, research analyst at FXTM.

                            30.01.2018 - More than the rise in yields, the pace of the increase is what could hurt equity markets, said Hussein Sayed, chief market strategist at FXTM. “A simple question that may come to investors mind, is ‘why would I remain in equities when two-year U.S. treasury bills can provide the same divided yield return of the S&P 500?'.”

                                23.01.2018 - “The yellow metal remains bullish on the daily charts and has the potential to venture higher amid the weakening U.S. dollar,” said Lukman Otunuga, research analyst at FXTM. “From a technical standpoint, the fact that there have been consistently higher highs and higher lows verifies the bullish bias on the daily charts,” he said in a daily note. “A technical breakout and solid weekly close above the $1,340 level could encourage a further incline higher towards $1,360.”

                                    19.01.2018 - "Most people who were buying bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies most recently, are not using them for transactions, but holding them in the expectation of profiting from the endless rising price," Hussein Sayed, chief market strategist at FXTM, said in an email on Thursday morning. "Whether the animal spirits have already released their grip, remains to be seen and this cannot be ascertained from a two-day slump."

                                        19.01.2018 - Lukman Otunuga, a research analyst at FXTM, said an “unsavoury combination” of rising inflation and tepid wage growth had “sapped” consumer spending power. “With wage growth consistently lagging behind inflation and putting the squeeze on household incomes, concerns are likely to heighten over the sustainability of Britain’s consumer-driven economic growth,” he said.
