CNBC
02.04.2018 - "A tariff 'tit-for-tat' is a lose-lose situation. So it's likely that after this war of nerves, the world's two largest economies will find a middle ground," Hussein Sayed, chief market strategist at Forextime, said in a note.

    28.03.2018 - “Stock markets are likely to remain explosively volatile and wildly unpredictable amid the ongoing trade drama between the U.S. and China,” said Lukman Otunuga, research analyst at FXTM, in a note. “While easing fears of a trade war initially supported risk sentiment, reports that the Trump administration may crackdown on Chinese investments into U.S. companies rekindled jitters. With the U.S.-China trade developments being a key theme driving markets, investors should expect the unexpected,” he said.

      28.03.2018 - “This has certainly been a painful trading month for the greenback, as the awful combination of US political uncertainty and trade war fears punished the currency. The ‘dot plot’ disappointment from March’s FOMC meeting which poured cold water on four rate hikes this year, simply compounded the dollar’s woes,” said Lukman Otunuga, research analyst at FXTM

        28.03.2018 - “While an appreciating dollar could result in further pain for gold in the short term, the yellow metal remains supported by increasing geopolitical tensions, stock market volatility and lingering trade war concerns,” said Lukman Otunuga, research analyst at FXTM.

          28.03.2018 - "The fact that global equities roared back to life on Monday only to surrender gains yesterday, continues to highlight how extremely skittish the market is currently," said Lukman Otunuga, a research analyst at FXTM.

            23.03.2018 - “The main risk event for the dollar this week will be the two-day Federal Open Market Committee monetary policy meeting, which is expected to conclude with the central bank raising U.S. interest rates,” wrote Lukman Otunuga, research analyst at FXTM. “Expectations of higher U.S. interest rates are considered as the main catalyst to improve dollar demand. Political stability in Washington and concerns about Trump’s trade policies negatively impacting the U.S. economy, are seen as the major risks for dollar demand.

              23.03.2018 - “Expectations of higher U.S. interest rates are considered as the main catalyst to improve dollar demand,” said Lukman Otunuga, research analyst at FXTM. At the same time, however, “political instability in Washington and concerns about [President Donald] Trump’s trade policies negatively impacting the U.S. economy, are seen as the major risks for dollar demand.” “The dollar is still being driven by conflicting fundamental themes, and there is room for volatility in the greenback this week,” he said in a note.

                  19.03.2018 - "Concerns over the potential for a Trump trade war still seem to be weighing on the minds of investors, with a lack of risk appetite still leading to caution in global stock markets," FXTM research analyst Lukman Otunuga said.

                    15.03.2018 - “With investor appetite for the British pound limited amid Brexit uncertainty, bulls are finding it increasingly difficult to keep prices buoyed,” said Lukman Otunuga, an analyst at FXTM.

                      15.03.2018 - Lukman Otunuga, research analyst at FXTM, said yet another advertising ban had "eroded investor appetite" towards bitcoin. He added that Google's move was followed by the International Monetary Fund calling for a global crackdown on cryptocurrencies. "The outlook for Bitcoin is looking increasingly gloomy," Otunuga said. "Focusing purely on the technical picture, bitcoin is bearish on the daily charts with $10,000 acting a solid psychological resistance level. Sustained weakness below $8,000 could open a path back towards $7,000 and $6,000, respectively.

                        12.03.2018 - “The 313,000 additional [U.S.] jobs took economists and markets by surprise. Although employees may not like the 0.1% rise in average hourly earnings, employers liked it and markets loved it,” said Hussein Sayed, chief market strategist at FXTM. “This is simply because the modest increase in wage growth indicates that the Federal Reserve will continue to have some sort of slack in the labor market to deal with and thus keep the Fed on course for three rate hikes in 2018 instead of four,” Sayed said in a note.

                          08.03.2018 - Overall, it has certainly been a “roller coaster week for the yellow metal, as the combination of political uncertainty and U.S. rate hike expectations attracted both buyers and sellers,” said Lukman Otunuga, research analyst at FXTM. Much attention will be directed towards Friday’s U.S. nonfarm payrolls report, “which could play a role in how gold concludes this week” he said in a note. “A strong U.S. jobs report may encourage bears to drag prices below $1,324.”

                            07.03.2018 - Jameel Ahmad, global head of currency strategy and market research at FXTM, said the move was not likely to have a long-term impact on the stock markets or risk appetite – "unless Trump does step up the trade war narrative", that is.

                              02.03.2018 - Yesterday’s “bombshell” announcement “is likely to fuel concerns of retaliatory actions from major US trade partners consequently weighing on risk appetite,” said Lukman Otunuga, a research analyst at FXTM. “ Investors are clearly jittery by the threat of a potential global trade war and its possible effect on stock markets.”

                                      23.02.2018 - "Although the cryptocurrency has staged a recovery back towards $10,000 as of writing, the price action witnessed this week suggests that bulls are exhausted. Sustained weakness below $10,000 could spark discussions over the recent rebound being nothing more than a dead cat bounce," Otunuga said.

                                        23.02.2018 - “Fears revolving around rising inflationary pressures and rate hike jitters have certainly left investors skittish this trading week. Investors seem to be on edge about higher interest rates and as such, this continues to encourage global equity bulls and bears to engage in a tough tug of war,” said Lukman Otunuga, research analyst at FXTM. “With investors on guard as global stock markets become increasingly sensitive to the prospect of rising inflation and interest rates, equity bears could steal the show,” he said in a note.
