Market Highlights (March 18, 2019)

GBP: PM May Looking to Break the Brexit Stalemate.

EUR: The Euro Nudges Higher but Move May be Fleeting.

GOLD: Back Above $1,300/oz. on US Dollar Weakness.

Sterling (GBP) starts a busy week in negative territory as PM Theresa May continues to push ahead with her Brexit bill. It looks likely that the bill will be presented again to Parliament to vote on this week, if the PM secures the backing of the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP). If a vote is to take place it will need to be before the latest European Council meeting starts on Thursday (March 21). A delay in the UK exiting the EU looks inevitable whatever the outcome of any vote. The latest Bank of England (BOE) policy meeting takes place on Thursday with all monetary policy settings expected to be left untouched.

Euro (EUR) starts the week on the front foot helped by a weaker US dollar and British Pound. A raft of sentiment indicators and PMIs this week may well underscore the weakness in the Euro-Zone at present and weigh on the single currency. In addition, the latest FOMC rate decision on Wednesday may well weigh further on EURUSD.

Gold (XAU) traders will also be keeping an on this week’s Fed meeting for any clues on the future path of interest rates. 10-year US Treasury yields (2.59%) are at, or very close to, their lowest levels of the year as additional rate hikes are priced-out of the bond market. In addition, Gold may suffer from an ongoing risk-on market sentiment as equity markets continue to push higher.
