A Rocky Market With UK’s Parliamentary whiplash.By Kenneth@Xtrade - on March 28, 2019
A Rocky Market with UK’s Parliamentary whiplash.
The US GDP, Gross Domestic Product and the UK’s Parliamentary whiplashes are driving market sentiment as Oil retracts following reports of a build-up from the EIA in Gasoline inventories. This status is very wobbly.
Well the market is interesting at least if you get on the right side of the trends. Most hedge funds and spread betters, are finding the times favourable for intra-day trading or hedging. A strategy which personally, I applaud especially when long dated trades, may easily prove to be risky due to the lack of clarity. Inexperienced traders may find the trends to be too wild, for them. The benefits of trading during this time is mistakes could be corrected promptly when spotted.
The USD, is due to release its Q4 GDP by the Bureau of Economic Analysis, which is estimated to come in around 2.4%. In case it beats estimations the USD shall continue up trending for most part of the US session. However, USD may lose steam should the report disappoint. Amid a deluge of economic reports from the US, Euro area and Japan the market is rocky.
Brexit: The British Parliament took over the Brexit process, However, it is still not clear on approach has been taken. PM Theresa May threatened to resign. If any of here proposals are to pass. Eventually all 8 or so suggestions were cast down. Naturally, the GBP is in shambles. The Brexit shall not take place on the 29th of March.
