    • Post in DAX30
      Join the DAX conversation on Community: "We have strayed from the technicals and wandered into fundamental territory and everything is spinning on every Trump tweet. But all else being equal (putting aside the trade issue) and given the overall good state of the US economy all the main indices should be drifting up out of this period of consolidation. But the big levels always matter and any breach takes some effort to undo and a drop below 12544 puts us back into a prior range whose bottom is indeed around 11800."

    • OPEC oil talks - EMEA brief 22nd June
      Oil seeing volatility ahead of a crucial meeting for OPEC on production. Emerging markets aren't helped by trade war talks and slip to a 9 month low. Trade war fallout starting to be seen with Daimler's profit warning likely to be linked to the imposed tariffs. Relatively large macro economic day today. Give a once over to the calendar below and plan your day.

      Asian markets were largely back in the red overnight, as the market fear that has been dictating the state of play globally returned once more. Japanese markets also traded lower, despite a rise in the manufacturing PMI survey overnight, with the May figure also revised higher. Oil is going to be the talk of the town today, with the OPEC meeting reaching its conclusion. The question is whether we see a production rise by above or below 1M bpd. This is a rough the threshold that differentiates a result that is seen as a victory for Iran (below 1M), or Saudi Arabia (above 1M).

    • EU joins trade war - EMEA brief 21st June
      Trade war continues with EU initiating retaliatory tariffs from tomorrow. 25% will be levied against products from whiskey to jeans and motorbikes. GBPUSD hits 7 month low on fears May will be ousted as PM over Brexit. FTSE index buoyed by a depreciated Sterling. 

      Another mixed session in Asia saw Chinese stocks steady themselves after yesterday’s losses despite continued fears over a trade war with the US. Crude remains at the forefront of the market agenda, with weekly US crude inventories falling by the highest amount since January. Meanwhile, a weaker New Zealand GDP figure sent NZDUSD lower overnight.

    • BoE: Rate Decision
      Although primary indicators have been mixed (household and business indicators down, whilst manufacturing, construction, and services have been stable or up), GDP only grew by 0.4% annualized in Q1. The brexit process is still firmly in the headlights of the MPC, and despite stable unemployment figures the GDP forecast has been lowered this year according to Consensus Economics. This generally points to a broadly weaker picture when it comes to macro data, and therefore no interest rate change is expected. Despite this there are still trade opportunities to be had, especially in GBP crosses.
