Please be aware that if you are holding T+2 FX positions past 10pm tomorrow night and T+1 pairs past 10pm Wednesday night (all times GMT), you will be charged/credited 5 days’ worth of funding due to the bank holidays on Friday and Monday across most pairs. (Some crosses will settle on the 2nd so clients will be charged/credited 4 days.)

 

Quarter end swap rates look to be slightly higher than what they normally are for a 5 day period over 29th March-3rd April roll. Notably, if you’re short dollars you’ll be paying more, whilst if you’re long dollars you’ll be receiving more. The rationale for the quarter-end movement remains the same  - it is a reflection of the expected demand for dollars around month-, quarter- and year-end and as such it is very flow driven.

 

All things being equal, the spot rate should adjust to reflect this at 10pm as it did over year end. This is, however out of our control. Please note the moves are nowhere near what we saw over year end, but if you have any questions please just add a comment below.

    • Charting the Markets - February 6, 2023 FTSE 100, DAX and S&P 500 tiptoe lower following strong US jobs report. EUR/USD and GBP/USD are topping out while EUR/GBP rallies. And gold, Brent crude, and natural gas head lower, as payrolls strengthen the dollar.                         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.
    • Natural gas has been in a consistent downtrend over recent months, and Joshua Mahony expects to see this decline continue. Josh therefore favours a short position, with a stop-loss at 2630 and target of 2232. He also looks back at the recent EUR/USD, USD/JPY, aluminium, and USD/CAD trades.

    • What do we now know about the economic outlook given the meetings this week at the Federal Reserve (Fed), Bank of England (BoE) and European Central Bank (ECB)? IGTV’s Jeremy Naylor caught up with foreign exchange analyst Richard Snow, from Daily FX, who discussed the potential continuation of the long EUR/USD trade.
