GBP/USD fall continues as dollar stays bid, pound weighed down by domestic politics

GBP/USD falls to a low of 1.3038 on the day ForexLive If there's one things traders dislike more than anything else, it's uncertainty.

EUR/USD rises to session high as Italian bonds cheer Moody's rating review

Italy's 10-year bond yields are down 10 bps to start the week ForexLive EUR/USD touches a high of 1.1536 on the session as the euro gains some poise on the back of a much calmer backdrop seen in Italian assets to begin the new week. Late on Friday, Moody's decided to cut Italy's credit rating to one grade above junk status but the key was that they revised the outlook to stable. That means the likelihood of a further downgrade to junk status is off the table for now and that's what investors are cheering about.

USDJPY Mon 22 Oct

USD/JPY pushes towards highest since Wednesday. What's next

112.65 holding so far USD/JPY is testing minor resistance at 112.65 after falling as low as 112.35. The turnaround comes as sentiment is buoyed by a massive rally in Chinese equity markets following a household tax cut announcement and upbeat commentary from leaders on Friday.

NZDJPY Fri 19 Oct

What risk rout? NZD/JPY rises to highest since Oct 4

Bounce from the bottom continues The kiwi is the top performer today while the yen lags. This is the classic pair for the risk trade, although I'd argue that's a dangerous way to look at it given the housing fears in New Zealand and flat interest rate profile for the foreseeable future.

EURGBP Fri 19 Oct

EURGBP coiling from indecision

Italy budget vs Brexit Which is worse? Italy's budget problem for the Euro or Britain's N.Irish border problem for the GBP? This is what EURGBP is trying to decide at the moment as price coils, ready to spring.

GBPUSD still contained by 100EMA

GOLD Fri 19 Oct

Gold longs make sense in a high yield falling equity market

GBPUSD's rise halted at 100EMA

GBPUSD falling off 100 EMA The 100 EMA (blue line) halted the rise of GBP/USD on the 15 minute chart. Stay below and we are looking at testing the daily lows again. With all the bearish sentiment around I would expect a second test break through the support level and head through 1.3000

GBPUSD Fri 19 Oct

Looking at the GBPUSD weekly chart 

Weakening outlook for GBP The situation for Britain coming out of the EU Summit looks at putting further uncertainty ahead for the GBP. No hint of a deal and more problems than solutions. Admittedly the problem is the same one, what to do about the N. Irish Border, but the outlook for a solution is waning in my view.

XAUUSD Fri 19 Oct

Going for gold part 2

Gold maintains it's shine  As long as treasury yields are rising and equities are falling Gold longs keep making sense. I posted earlier in the session that Gold was likely to be bid at the 100 EMA today on the 1 hr chart and that has turned out to be the case.

GOLD Fri 19 Oct

Going for gold in a higher yield, falling equity market

Seeking gain from Gold Gold makes sense again. US 10 year treasuries yields are rising and the Equity markets are falling with price falling further in the US last night in the S&P and Dow and Nasdaq. More declines look imminent and ominous.
