17.05.2018 - "Only one month ago, the markets were predicting a more than 90% probability of a UK interest rate increase this month. Today, this probability has evaporated to less than 15%," said Lukman Otunuga, a research analyst at FXTM.

    16.05.2018 - "The comments from Erdogan were clearly not what investors wanted to hear," said Jameel Ahmad, global head of currency strategy and market research at forex broker FXTM, saying they were seen "at the very least as a severe threat to central bank independence."

        15.05.2018 - “Investor confidence in Turkey is already at severely low levels,” said Jameel Ahmad, global head of currency strategy and market research at FXTM. “If Erdogan is able to insert more influence around central bank policy and economic matters we can’t rule out the possibility that the lira will weaken all the way to 5 against the dollar by the end of the summer.”

          10.05.2018 - “It is certainly shaping up to be another incredibly bullish trading week for the greenback, which has punched above 93.35, its highest level this year,” said Lukman Otunuga, a research analyst at FXTM, a currency broker.

            09.05.2018 - “These overall risks are encouraging traders to price in some new geopolitical risk premium, and his threat can potentially be seen as a blow for U.S. allies. There is a threat of Trump’s stark tone questioning U.S. relations with its European allies, especially given that the likes of France and the United Kingdom had appealed for Trump not to withdraw.” — Lukman Otunuga, research analyst at FXTM, in a note.

              09.05.2018 - Lukman Otunuga, research analyst at FXTM said: “While it was widely anticipated that Trump would pull out of the Iran agreement, what is likely to leave a lasting impact on the markets is the threat that he would also penalize those who help Iran.

                  04.05.2018 - Lukman Otunuga, analyst at currency trading firm FXTM, explains: The chances of a breakthrough trade deal from the two-day meeting are seen as highly unlikely. However, the talks could be a positive step for the two nations to avoid a potential trade war. Although it is difficult to predict the outcome of the trade meetings, continual talks and negotiations between the Trump administration officials and Chinese officials may ease tensions.

                    04.05.2018 - "Gold bears may be offered an opportunity to attack and conquer the $1,300 level today, if the NFP data results exceed market expectations," said Lukman Otunuga, research analyst at FXTM.

                      04.05.2018 - “The rand has caught the cold from the U.S. dollar moves,” said Jameel Ahmad, global head of currency strategy at FXTM. “The rand has weakened a lot this week and it’s because of a lot of external risks. We’ve see that the euro suffers, the yen’s suffered and the pound’s suffered. It’s not a South Africa story,” Ahmad said, pointing to rising oil prices and worries over a breakdown in the U.S.-Iran nuclear deal.

                        04.05.2018 - "The trade talks carry the potential to negatively impact global stocks as a result of reduced risk appetite, and could also result in reduced purchasing momentum for emerging market currencies," said Jameel Ahmad, global head of currency strategy and market research at FXTM.

                          03.05.2018 - “Price action continues to suggest that WTI bulls remain heavily reliant on geopolitical tensions and fears of supply shortages to sustain the current upside,” wrote Lukman Otunuga, research analyst at FXTM, in a Thursday note. “While oil could appreciate further if the U.S. withdraws from the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, gains are likely to remain limited by robust production from U.S. shale,” he wrote.

                            01.05.2018 - “If the U.S. pulls out of the agreement on May 12 or before, Iranian oil exports are expected to plunge,” said Hussein Sayed, chief market strategist at FXTM, estimating a possible 400,000 barrel a day loss. “While this might not seem to be a significant amount, when taking into consideration the drop in global inventories, the robust demand, and the level of compliance of OPEC and partners, oil may quickly add an additional $5 to current prices,” he said.

                              30.04.2018 - However, Hussein Sayed, chief market strategist at FXTM cautioned that “whether the uptrend resumes this week will depend on inflation data, the Federal Open Market Committee meeting, and the employment report.”

                                27.04.2018 - Lukman Otunuga, Research Analyst at FXTM, says the UK GDP figures have undermined the pound sharply. Buying sentiment towards the British Pound was dealt a severe blow on Friday, following reports that the U.K economy grew much slower than expected in Q1. U.K GDP growth slowed to 0.1% in the first quarter, much worse than the expected 0.3%, and its weakest since 2012. While the snow had some negative impacts on GDP, the bad weather really can’t bear all the blame - its effects on growth were small.

                                  24.04.2018 - “While further upside could be on the cards for oil in the near term, the sustainability of the [recent] rally is a concern,” said Lukman Otunuga, research analyst at FXTM. “WTI bulls may be heavily reliant on geopolitics to keep prices appreciating, which could expose oil to extreme downside risks if geopolitical tensions start to ease,” he said. “With rising production from U.S. shale still a key market theme that continues to weigh on oil prices, it will be interesting to see how much oil appreciates before bears enter the scene.”

                                    23.04.2018 - Hussein Sayed, chief market strategist at FXTM, said the rand could soon weaken beyond 12.30 to the dollar.

                                      23.04.2018 - “Although Trump’s tweet may have encouraged profit-taking, it will not have a long-lasting effect. What OPEC should be worried about is how higher oil prices will impact inflation and thus, interest rates,” said Hussein Sayed, chief market strategist at FXTM, in a note to clients. The strategist said a steep rise in prices would add further pressure on global economy which is already showing signs of weakness. “That’s what could put a ceiling on oil prices,” said Sayed.

                                        20.04.2018 - Gold prices moved lower as easing geopolitical tensions and expectations of higher U.S interest rates “dented appetite for the yellow metal,” said Lukman Otunuga, research analyst at FXTM. “While bulls remain inspired by geopolitics, lingering trade war fears and U.S. political risk, bears have found support in the form of rising U.S. rate hike expectations.”   Lukman expects gold to “remain a battleground for bulls and bears until a fresh directional catalyst is brought into the picture.”
