Valutrades Market Blast Fundamentals 20 January 2020


Welcome to this week’s Market Blast Fundamentals where we will look at GBPCHF, Gold (XAUUSD), EURCHF, CADJPY, and at Davos.

A quick look at the US dollar Majors shows us mixed results over the last 10 days but watch for news from the Davos Economic Forum all week for market moving breakthroughs including global trade deals.

We have 3 major Interest rate decisions this week with Japan tomorrow, Canada Wednesday and the ECB Thursday but the market is expecting no change from all three.

Nevertheless, we can expect volatility and we see Canadian Dollar strength overall especially against the Yen but watch for Retail Sales figures from Canada Friday.

Also, with the Euro, we have German Economic Sentiment Tuesday, an ECB press conference Thursday and a speech by Christine Lagarde Friday so expect volatility with the Euro where we see mixed results but weakness against the Swiss Franc.

Gold has come down from its peak of over $1600 after de-escalation in Iran and some hope on the US China trade deal but analysts feel that many Central Banks will continue to buy gold but look for a sell-off at $1600 again.

The Pound has stabilised (except against the Swiss Franc) since its rally after the UK elections and the market is waiting to see progress on Brexit but watch for employment data tomorrow.

That’s all for now. Happy trading with Valutrades and we will see you tomorrow.
