The Telegraph
27.09.2017 - Lukman Otunuga, research analyst at FXTM, explained why the event has captured the markets' focus: "A sense of anticipation can be felt across the financial markets ahead of President Trump’s tax proposal in Indiana later today. Although some information has been leaked that corporate tax may be lowered to 20% from 35%, market players are still likely to closely scrutinise the speech for further details on tax reforms. "If legislation is passed this year, this should boost sentiment towards the US economy and support the Dollar further."

      26.09.2017 - But on Tuesday, “a resurgent dollar injected bearish investors with enough inspiration to send gold back toward $1,300,” said Lukman Otunuga, research analyst at FXTM, in a note. But overall, “the volatile combination of renewed geopolitical tensions and fluctuating rate-hike expectations, have made gold a battle ground for bulls and bears, which can be reflected in the erratic price action,” Otunuga said.

        19.09.2017 - “With investors still re-evaluating the Federal Reserve’s ability to raise U.S. interest rates in December, attention will be directed towards Janet Yellen and her thoughts on the recent inflation trends in the U.S.,” said Lukman Otunuga, research analyst at FXTM, in a note.   “A hawkish Yellen, who leaves the door open for another rate hike before year-end, is likely to offer the dollar a lifeline,” he added.

          18.09.2017 - Hussein Sayed, chief market strategist at FXTM, agrees that investors are focused on Wednesday’s Federal Reserve meeting. Upbeat U.S. inflation data was not enough to move markets’ expectations of an interest rate hike in December. The odds for an interest rate hike by the end of year stands at 56%, according to CME’s FedWatch; whether this is about to change on Wednesday, relies on the Fed dot plot and Chair Janet Yellen’s speech.

              15.09.2017 - “With the markets now pricing in a very high possibility of a rate hike before year-end, sterling is likely to regain its attitude and remain supported moving forward,” said Lukman Otunuga, research analyst at FXTM, in a note. “Sterling/dollar is undeniably bullish on the daily charts, and this upside momentum is likely to roll over into the new trading week,” he added. Otunuga said he sees bulls targeting the $1.37 level.

                12.09.2017 - “Although the appetite for equities may further affect gold prices, investors are likely to remain cautious and hedge against many unknowns,” said Hussein Sayed, chief market strategist at FXTM. “That’s why we didn’t see any significant outflows from gold-backed exchange-traded funds.”

                  11.09.2017 - “Market players who were bracing for North Korea to conduct another missile launch over the weekend to mark their foundation day, were relieved when Pyongyang decided to host a celebration instead,” said Lukman Otunuga, research analyst at FXTM. “This reprieve has rekindled appetite for riskier assets, and supported the greenback, while punishing safe havens such as gold.”

                      06.09.2017 - “Markets have become increasingly sensitive to geopolitical influence,” said FXTM analyst Lukman Otunuga, though others said reaction to the latest test had been relatively muted, given the severity of the threat.

                        06.09.2017 - "The combination of improving economic data in China and the ongoing weakness in investment sentiment towards the dollar, is encouraging for the yuan," said Jameel Ahmad, chief market analyst at FXTM, a forex broker.

                          04.09.2017 - “Gold has rallied following further escalation in geopolitical tensions around North Korea,” said Jameel Ahmad, vice president of Market Research at FXTM. “This looks like safe-haven buying from traders. These tensions do not look like they are going anywhere, and are likely to encourage investors to hold on to their gold positions,” Ahmad said.

                            04.09.2017 - “The markets’ reaction seems similar to when missile launches have taken place in the past; investors sell stock” and “rush to safe havens,” said Hussein Sayed, chief market strategist at FXTM, in a note. Sayed said China, North Korea’s closest ally, seems to be losing influence with Kim Jong Un, but that Beijing will try to avoid a war. “A military attack on North Korea could mean an unmanageable flow of refugees to China, instability in the region, disruption of trade and of course, no country would desire a war in its backyard,” he said

                                04.09.2017 - “The erratic price action on sterling continues to suggest that the currency is waiting for a catalyst to break above the 1.300 resistance, or below the 1.285 support,” said Lukman Otunuga, research analyst at FXTM. “Although Brexit uncertainty continues to weaken the pound, political risk in the US and fading rate hike expectations have also punished the US dollar.”

Investors sell stock, rush to safe havens, assess the situation, and then buy the dips as tension eases,” said Hussein Sayed, chief market strategist at brokers FXTM.

"While stocks fell in Asia, the selloff was not massive, mainly because the nuclear test occurred over the weekend and there was enough time to digest the news."

Meanwhile, Bank of America-Merrill Lynch has also projected that the yellow metal will surge to $1,400 by early 2018 as interest rates will stay low.
