hi  - the possibility certainly increased substantially over the past week. I am going to stick to my original "no", the majority FED role players seem dovish and I think they will probably start the year with something like that opposed to end it with a rate hike? Personal opinion - they are creating a hype - and it works, everybody uses the term "FED rate hike" more :)


Happy days

 I think fundamentally the markets are ready for a rate rise.  If you look at the dollar basket you can see just how strong the dollar is.  I think the markets have already priced in a rate rise and in my opinion the fed just need to get on with it.  I think most central banks (certainly the BofE) are waiting on the fed to move before they do.


When you look at the dollar basket, is it any wonder that commodities have been hit with such a strong currency.  Usually you would expect the currency to get stronger after a rate rise but I think it will just slightly ease the pressure and we could see a bit of a rebalancing when other central banks follow the fed.


Still a long way to go but a rise in December is still on the cards.  Although anything could happen ........

    • Hi, I have encountered a discrepancy between my theoretical PnL calculation and the PnL reported in my trade history. I would appreciate some assistance in understanding the difference. Here are the details of the trade: Currency Pair: USD/MXN Number of Contracts: 10 Contract Size: 100,000 USD Opening Price: 17.79107 Closing Price: 17.97692 Reported PnL: $10,283.10 Conversion Rate Used: 0.0553301262247 USD/MXN Theoretical PnL Calculation: Change in Price: 17.97692 - 17.79107 = 0.18585 MXN/USD PnL per Contract: 0.18585 * 100,000 = 18,585 MXN Total PnL in MXN: 18,585 * 10 = 185,850 MXN Converted PnL in USD: 185,850 / 17.97692 ≈ $10,338.2 Considering the theoretical PnL is approximately $10,338, I am trying to understand why the reported PnL is $10,283.10. I noticed that when I multiply the PnL in MXN by the conversion rate used, I find the reported PnL, . but I do not understand where this value comes from. Could you please help me clarify how the conversion rate of 0.0553301262247 USD/MXN was determined and why it differs from the typical market rates around the time of the trade? Thank you very much!
