20.10.2017 - “This has certainly been another interesting week for gold,” which has tumbled after closing above the $1,300 level last week, said Lukman Otunuga, research analyst at FXTM. “The metal has steadily depreciated in recent days, despite geopolitical tensions and political uncertainty supporting the flight to safety.” “There is a suspicion that the culprit behind gold’s selloff may be renewed optimism over Donald Trump’s tax reforms,” he said in an email update.

      18.10.2017 - "With dollar strength in mind, it would present further risks to gold, but I'm waiting to see how the Catalonia crisis unfolds tomorrow, pinpointing a possible next move for gold, in either direction," said Jameel Ahmad, vice president of market research at FXTM.

        17.10.2017 - "Oil bulls were in full force this week, as escalating tensions in Iraq sparked concerns over potential output disruptions from the northern regions," said research analyst, Lukman Otunuga at FXTM.

          17.10.2017 - Beware, though, on the morning after another record day on Wall Street: The gloomsters are out there, poised to curb your enthusiasm. FXTM’s chief market strategist Hussein Sayed, for one, is telling clients that the Dow and its ilk are undeserving of record levels. He notes that analysts have been forced to adjust their year-end U.S. index targets higher, with little justification. Sayed isn’t ready to bet against a market driven by “speculation and greed” yet, though. He suggests investors armor up a bit via the CBOE Volatility IndexVIX, +0.20%  , which is

              16.10.2017 - “Given that a December rate hike is almost entirely priced in, the dollar will be driven by longer-term expectations. The three rate hikes plotted on the Fed’s dot plot for 2018, is nowhere near to markets’ expectations of only one, and the main risk facing the greenback is who will lead the Fed after Janet Yellen departs,” said Hussein Sayed, chief market strategist at FXTM. “If [wages and inflation] remain weak in the final quarter of the year, I think the dollar will continue to be dragged lower,” he added in a note.

                16.10.2017 - Hussein Sayed, chief market strategist at FXTM, said: "The oil price is the only asset class showing big moves on a quiet Monday." Sayed said: Brent is up more than one per cent, trading at its highest level since 28 September, after Iraqi forces began marching towards Kirkuk - an oil-rich Kurdish province. Clashes have been reported between Kurdish fighters and Iraqi forces early today, threatening to disrupt output from Kurdish controlled fields. If the 600,000 barrels a day exports from Kirkuk’s oil fields are halted, I expect Brent to retest September’s

With prices already surging over 450 per cent this year to above $5,300, further gains could be on the cards, as extremely bullish momentum encourages investors to speculate on even grander gains," said Lukman Otunuga, research ananlyst at FXTM.

                    13.10.2017 - “While markets are still expecting the Federal Reserve to raise interest rates in December, concerns over prolonged periods of depressed inflation may cloud the prospect of higher U.S. interest rates in 2018,” Lukman Otunuga, a research analyst at FXTM said. “Although this (retail sales) was below market estimates, this figure is still encouraging and continues to support the bullish sentiment towards the U.S. economy.”

"Although Saudi Aramco plans to make 'the deepest customer allocation cuts in its history' by cutting 560,000 bpd next month, its impact could be diluted if the U.S. shale producers see this as a Christmas gift."

                          10.10.2017 - From a technical standpoint, U.S. crude has staged an impressive rebound from the $49.08 level and a decisive breakout above $51 should encourage a further incline towards $52.40 a barrel, said Lukman Otunuga, research analyst at FXTM. “In an alternative scenario, sustained weakness below $49, which is also under the 50 (day) daily simple moving average, may open a path towards $47.80.”

This will lead to more violence and probably an intervention from EU leaders, who will come under pressure to take action," said Hussein Sayed, chief market strategist at FXTM.
