A fantastic week for traders ahead

Hi guys

So this week seems to be one of the most exciting weeks for traders. The FED in the US comes out with its vig announcement regarding interest rates in the United States.

 

Market speculation is that there is a 15% chance only off such a hike however, you can never be too sure. The bottom line is this, if they increase interest rates our markets are going sharply lower. And if interest rates remain the same we should see a little more in this bull rally to come. Either way, this may present some very interesting profitable trading opportunities.

 

Interested to hear your comments.

Thanks for that. I myself will be short next week but mainly on the U.S market. I think the Ftse just doesnt give the volitility a day trader needs at the minute. What are your thoughts for Monday, short or long?

Hi. It's hard to say as, the market is looking for a catalyst to either drive it up or down. One could argue that Friday is sell-off was some sort of profit-taking due to the early rally that took place the day before.

 

There is a lot of speculation with regards to the oil producing countries meeting taking place next week.

 

I think it may move slightly higher but will trade arrange bound

I also forgot to mention that the election debate will be taking place on Monday. Due to the fact that this is such a tightly contested election, what ever is said at these debates may have some impact on certain sectors off the US stock market.

 

Clinton comes across as being rather harsh on the pharmaceutical companies and certain statements from her may drive those stocks lower. Trump, on the other hand is proposing a lot of policies that would affect international trade and may affect trading and export stocks as well.

 

I am not sure how much of an effect this is going to have on the US market but, what I do know is that the market is looking for any kind of catalyst that would either drive it higher or lower due to the fact that owning season only starts in October.

    • Week ahead 12/12/22: Fed, BoE, ECB decisions With little or no corporate data we focus in on central bank decisions at the Federal Reserve (Fed), Bank of England (BoE) and European Central Bank (ECB). IGTV senior analyst, Joshua Mahony, discusses trades around the volatility index, the VIX, EUR/USD and the S&P 500.      
    • Charting the Markets: 9 December FTSE 100, DAX 40 and CAC 40 regain lost ground ahead of US PPI data. EUR/USD, GBP/USD, and AUD/USD look to continue their bullish two-month trend. And gold and natural gas edge higher but oil prices keep falling.         This is here for you to catch up but if you have any ideas on markets or events you want us to relay to the TV team we’re more than happy to.
    • EUR/USD, GBP/USD and AUD/USD look to continue their bullish two-month trend EUR/USD, GBP/USD and AUD/USD look set to continue their bullish momentum, with recent worries cast aside for now.    Joshua Mahony | Senior Market Analyst, London | Publication date: Friday 09 December 2022  EUR/USD continues to push higher after recent pullback EUR/USD has seen a more upbeat tone over the second half of the week, with the dollar strength seen on Monday and Tuesday fading to give way to another push higher for this pair. Markets appear to be in a state of flux, with inflationary concerns reemerging in the wake of last Friday’s jump in US average earnings. Today sees the release of the US producer price index (PPI) inflation figure, bringing potential volatility if we see factory prices head higher. China certainly has little to worry about on that front, with both consumer price index (CPI) (1.6%) and PPI (-1.3%) well below target thanks to cheap Russian fuel and lockdown restrictions. For EUR/USD, we would need to see a move back below the $1.029 swing-low to bring about a fresh bearish signal after two-months of upside for the pair. Until then, the bulls remain in the driving seat. Source: ProRealTime GBP/USD pushing back into key resistance GBP/USD also saw a somewhat downbeat start to the week, with the pair heading lower from the crucial $1.2293 swing-high resistance level. That August high provides a crucial hurdle up ahead for bulls, with a push through that point bringing expectations of another leg higher from here. The uptrend in place over the course of the past two-months has brought expectations of further upside unless we see that ongoing pattern of higher lows end. With that in mind, a bullish view holds unless the price falls back below the $1.19 level. Keep an eye out for the UK consumer inflation expectations figure released at 9.30am this morning. Source: ProRealTime AUD/USD struggling to maintain recovery pace AUD/USD has similarly been attempting to regain ground today, with the gains seen across EUR/USD and GBP/USD failing to carry through here. This could signal a potential waning of the bullish momentum, with the fact that these pair have been slowing in their ascent of late serving to highlight the potential for another bearish reversal in the near-future. That would tally up with what is happening in equity markets, which have shown initial tentative signs of a turnaround before long. With that in mind, watch out for a break back below the $0.664 level to signal a bearish turn for this pair. Until then, the uptrend evident over the past two-months does remain in play.
