Brexit Rumours, Palladium Bubble, EURUSD Outlook - US Market Open

Brexit Rumours, Palladium Bubble, EURUSD Outlook - US Market Open

Nick Cawley, Strategist

Market Themes and Movers

GBP: On the day that the UK was originally meant to leave the EU, PM May will present her withdrawal bill to the House for the third time, this though without the political declaration. GBPUSD probed 1.3000 in early turnover but during the session rumours surfaced that heavyweight MPs, and maybe even the all-important DUP, were seriously considering changing tack and voting for the bill. Cable jumped to 1.3125 on the news flow but further upside is expected to be limited until the result of today’s vote is known.

EUR: The Euro remains vulnerable to further losses, but one technical indicator indicates that EURUSD is currently oversold. While the trend remains lower, there is a possibility that the pair edge back towards the 1.1300 level from a current spot price of 1.1230. US PCE released at 12:30 GMT will also decide where the pair will head as we end Q1.

USD:The greenback benefitted from being ‘the cleanest shirt in the laundry basket’ on Thursday as both the Euro and Sterling fell lower. US Treasury yields have picked up by a couple of basis points from yesterday’s

lows and now the greenback will move to the side-lines ahead of the Fed’s favourite measure of inflation, US PCE. Later in the day, Q1 rebalancing may add a touch of volatility to the dollar.
