Valutrades Market Blast Fundamentals 29 July 2019


Welcome to this week’s Market Blast Fundamentals where we will look at Gold (XAUUSD), GBPUSD, USDJPY, the Hang Seng Index (HK50), the US Stock Indices.

29 July 2019 Fundamentals

If you like to trade US Indices you will know that the market has priced in a 25 basis point cut to US Interest Rates this week.

However, if the Fed cuts more, like 50 basis points, we will see upward movement in the S&P 500, the DJI Average and the NASDAQ.

The Hang Seng or Hong Kong 50 Index is suffering, however, so watch for news this week on the Hong Kong protests which are affecting the local economy and investor confidence.

The US Interest Rate announcement Wednesday will affect the USD of course, and we see clear USD strength but watch for volatility with this, and Tuesday’s Consumer Confidence and Home Sales, Thursday’s Manufacturing PMIs, and of course, Friday’s Non-Farm Payrolls.

Thursday, we also see the Bank of England Interest Rate decision but, perhaps more importantly, we may continue seeing further Pound weakness with the government now preparing for a No-Deal Brexit.

Any news on this will cause GBP volatility for the foreseeable future.

As always, we are watching Gold which will be affected by any news from the US/China trade talks and the conflict in Iran with the Iranian government expressing interest in opening a dialogue with the US today.

Tonight we expect volatility on JPY pairs with an interest Rate decision due and keep your Economic Calendar open all week as we have news from almost every other economy including The European Union, China, Mexico, Canada and Australia.

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