UK GDP only +0.3% – GBP/USD falls

UK GDP only +0.3% – GBP/USD falls

A big disappointment in the UK economy: the economy grew by only 0.3% q/q and only 2.4% y/y. The numbers take part of David Cameron’s wind out of his sails. His main point was the UK economic recovery. This doesn’t look so strong now. Miliband could say again that most people are not feeling it.  GBP/USD is falling over

Greece waiting for a deal

FOMC Preview – 5 keys to look out for

The Federal Reserve convenes for a meeting that does not consist of new forecasts nor a press conference. In addition, no policy change is expected, and these expectations are a result of the Fed’s explicit wording in the last meeting. So, does this imply an a boring event? Not at all.

EUR/USD rises to highest in 3 weeks – it’s not only Varoufakis

EUR/USD is moving up and topping 1.09, the highest level in three weeks, and at a better position within the wide 1.0450 to 1.1050 range that characterizes the pair in the past two months. The driver seems to be a reshuffling of the Greek negotiation team with the EU/IMF creditors. But digging a bit deeper, things are

USD/CAD slips to the 1.20 handle on oil, USD weakness

The Canadian dollar continues advancing. In a day light with economic indicators (and this will change quite soon), the loonie still finds reasons to rise. Dollar/CAD is trading at 1.2089, falling below 1.21 and hitting a low of 1.2080. Oil prices were on the move on Friday and continue ticking higher. This isn’t a spike but rather a
