Risk Off Sentiment
In this episode the Blokes discuss the current risk off sentiment in the markets & look at recent events impacting price action. This includes the latest US PPI and US CPI reports which both came out higher than previous. The complications that higher inflation can have on the economy is something Rory has discussed throughout the podcast and explains in this episode.
Jonathan also talks us through his thoughts on the US Dollar. Today with little data to move the markets we saw the Dollar strengthen as the risk-off mood continues in the market. Jonathan recaps todays moves in FX pairs with Key levels to watch out for. Jonathan looks at levels we may reach in the DXY & how this could effect other USD pairs, talking us through his reasoning along with his view on the current horizon.
Rory offers his view on Crude Oil with all factors looking like a continued rally to the upside. He then goes on to describe the correlation between Oil & the Canadian Dollar explaining how one effects the other.
Rory then offers his opinion on Gold after closing a profitable trade today with major support levels coming into play. Rory also talks about the events upcoming in markets this week. As earnings season is drawing to a close a lack of economic data on Monday led to a muted session and the calendar is limited for the remainder of the week with UK inflation and US Building permits on Wednesday. The FTSE100 has been struggling the last few weeks so all UK investors will be watching the data closely for any clues on what the BOE may be doing next.
