Weekly Outlook: 2017, May 21 - May 28 (based on the article)

The US dollar was on the back foot, suffering some political issues among other factors. The meeting minutes from the Fed stand out, alongside updates on US and UK GDP but perhaps the biggest event is the testimony of James Comey. Here are the highlights for the upcoming week.


    1. US New Home Sales: Tuesday, 14:00. A level of 611K is on the cards now.
    2. Canadian rate decision: Wednesday, 14:00. 
    3. US Existing Home Sales: Wednesday, 14:00. 
    4. James Comey testifies Wednesday, 13:30 (tentative). The former FBI Director returns to Capitol Hill for the first time after he was fired by President Trump. Comey’s memo included a passage suggesting that Trump tried to intervene in the investigation of Michael Flynn, the disgraced National Security Advisor about the connections between Russia and the Trump campaign. We have witnessed how the scandals have affected the US dollar. If Comey clearly says that Trump tried to obstruct justice, the dollar could fall. If he denies it or plays Trump’s comments down, the dollar could rise.
    5. FOMC Meeting Minutes: Wednesday, 18:00. In the May meeting, the Federal Reserve left interest rates unchanged and shrugged off the recent slowdown. Since then, we learned that wages have decelerated to 2.5% y/y and we have also learned about unimpressive retail sales and lower inflation. Since the meeting minutes document can be revised to send signals to markets, we might get a more dovish message than the statement suggested.
    6. UK GDP (second release): Thursday, 8:30. The number will likely be confirmed now.
    7. US jobless claims: Thursday, 12:30.
    8. US GDP (second release): Friday, 12:30. 
    9. US Durable Goods Orders: Friday, 12:30. Core orders, which the Fed eyes, were flat after the revision.

    GBP/USD Intra-Day Fundamentals: UK Services PMI and range price movement 

    2017-06-05 09:30 GMT | [GBP - Services PMI]

    • "Looking ahead, service sector firms are relatively upbeat about their growth prospects, with around 44% expecting a rise in business activity over the year ahead and only 8% anticipating a decline. Business optimism was linked to new product initiatives, hopes of a resilient UK economic backdrop and rising demand from overseas clients."

    UK Vote Raises Political, Brexit Uncertainties; intra-day price bearish breakdown  (based on the article)

    H4 price broke 100 SMA/200 SMA to below to be reversed to the primary bearish market condition. For now, the price is on testing 1.2634 support level to below for the bearish trend to be continuing.


    • "The UK general election result created uncertainty over the policy platform, political cohesion and longevity of the next UK government, Fitch Ratings said Friday."
    • "Elsewhere, Moody's Investors Service also said that the election result heightened uncertainty over Brexit negotiations. The strong electoral gains of the anti-austerity Labour Party mean that fiscal consolidation will have a lower priority and public debt will rise further."

Although some UK–specific uncertainties might limit the UK’s participation in that pickup, the Bank of England will make its contribution by pursuing determined policies within well-established frameworks in order to maintain monetary and financial stability.
