Banks’ Favourite Trades Ahead of UK Brexit Vote on June 23

Wednesday, June 15th, 2016

With sterling trades seen too expensive, the yen and Swiss franc are in demand according to in-depth research by news agency Bloomberg.

Here is a list of analysts’ favourite trades as written in research notes or recommended in interviews conducted by Bloomberg News in recent days.

Eyes on the Euro?

There are a few key points to mention in this latest segment of online Forex trading news.

    Ebola outbreak hits currency exchange rates?

    Thursday, August 21st, 2014

    Ebola virus impact on currency trading
    In the recent commodity trading news, is seems as if those allured by the profit of gold may be in for a disappointing return; at least for the short term.

    As this benchmark indicator hints at other financial trends, recent developments in regards to housing sector data in the United States alongside a bullish dollar have caused the yellow metal to take a slightly bearish outlook.

    Figures have shown that investor appetite is on the upswing; thus fueling their ability to enter into open trading positions.

    As always, the inverse relationship to the dollar is another reason for slight concern. However, the potential damage in international trade due to increasing concerns over the Ebola outbreak may serve to mute the overall negative outlook for gold in the coming weeks.

    Is China Opening Up to Forex Traders?

    Thursday, May 23rd, 2013

    Yuan Renminbi, China currency tradingEntering China has become a hot topic in the forex world. From boardrooms to bulletin boards, there’s a significant amount of buzz regarding the best way to delve into this market. China offers enormous potential for traders, yet this remains largely untapped due to the draconian regulations laid down by the Communist Chinese government.

    While it’s been possible for Forex companies to gain some kind of access to Chinese markets, this has typically been accomplished through partnerships with local representatives, offices in less heavily-regulated Asia-Pacific offices and IBs, this has not translated into securing a real presence in the country itself.

    Thursday, May 16th, 2013

    eToro social trading platform logoFollowing eToro’s license approval by the UK Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) in May of this year, the world’s number one social investment network is on the verge of setting up shop in London.

    FCA approval is a significant gain for eToro. The approval affirms eToro’s entitlement to offer financial services to UK users, and is a confirmation of its compliance with applicable regulations.

    In all likelihood, the FCA approval will considerably add to the company’s rapid growth in the UK area.

    How to trade Euro on the Cyprus bailout?

    Tuesday, March 19th, 2013

    European Central Bank Cyprus bailoutThe most prominent online trading news for this week is the unfolding situation in Cyprus. We have seen the Euro lose more value as the EU continues to pressure Cyprus to come to a consensus regarding the 5.8 billion Euros needed to save the ailing country from a disorderly default and a messy exit from the European Union.

    Although this 5.8 billion was initially to come from the mandatory levy on all citizens’ bank holdings, severe protests and mass withdrawals of capital have made this move, at least as it currently stands, all but impossible.

    Yen attract carry traders again

    Thursday, March 11th, 2010

    Japanese currency are becoming more interesting for carry traders, while forex experts estimate a set-back over the next months.

    Yen as a carry trade

    During much of the beginning of the century, yen was the main carry trade currency among international forex investors and traders. This mean it was sold by investors because its yield was so negligible, and the proceeds were invested in higher yielding currencies, such as Australian dollar (AUD) or Sterling (£). However, in the middle of the financial crisis, the yen was displaced by the US dollar, in the light of the slashed American interest rates.
