  • Europe to open higher ahead of services PMI’s. | CMC Markets Ireland
    With the Federal Reserve ending its QE program last week the prospect of a stronger US dollar could well impact further This in turn could well impact the recent recovery in the labour market in the coming months though for now markets are still expecting a broader improvement as lower oil prices feed through into a more decent recovery in the domestic economy The latest ADP October employment report is expected to show a gain of 220k new jobs up from 213k in September while the services ISM for October is set to come in at 58 a slight decline from September s 58 6 EURUSD the euro appears to be holding up above the 1 2440 50 area for now which raises the possibility of a short squeeze back towards the 1 2570 area The current rebound needs to overcome the 1 2570 area to argue for a move back towards 1 2800 while a move below 1 2400 argues for 1 2000 GBPUSD while above the previous lows at 1 5875 the risk remains for a short squeeze but we would need to see a move back through 1 6070 to argue for a move back towards 1 6150 Only a break below 1 5875 potentially opens up a move towards 1 5720 EURGBP after this week s failure to push below 0 7800 we could well get a rebound towards the 0 7900 level We need to get through the 0 7940 level to stabilise A break below the 2012 lows at 0 7754 is the main obstacle to further declines towards 0 7690 the October 2008 lows USDJPY last week s unexpected break above the 110 70 area has the potential to push the US dollar towards 115 00 in short order Having rallied strongly in the last few days only a break back below 110 00 would have the potential to derail a higher US dollar scenario towards 120 00 CMC Markets is an execution only provider The material whether or not it states any opinions is for general information purposes only and does not take into account your personal circumstances or objectives Nothing in this material is or should be considered to be financial investment or other advice on which reliance should be placed No opinion given in the material constitutes a recommendation by CMC Markets or the author that any particular investment security transaction or investment strategy is suitable for any specific person Sub menu Latest Blogs Oil truce sends WTI lower while stocks continue to recover North American traders return to oil production truce and fading China fears UK inflation in focus after McCafferty U Turn Stocks and oil rebound as positive news rebuilds confidence What s up with Yellen Gold and JPY today Open a live account Free demo account Losses can exceed your deposits Dublin Trader Network This forum event will be hosted by our Chief Market Analyst Michael Hewson and guest speaker Paul Wallace in the Gresham Hotel Dublin

  • Dividends in focus as BP and Shell report full year numbers. | CMC Markets Ireland
    to see profits nearly halve from 19bn to 10 7bn causing many to question the wisdom of such a big outlay at a time when costs are being pared to the bone Given the current environment it seems likely that we could well see further significant job losses being announced now that the deal finally is finally moving into the final straight of completion These concerns do appear to have helped prompt an accelerated slide in the share price towards the end of last year culminating in the B shares share price testing their 2008 lows late last month despite the fact that Shell has been slashing costs quite sharply over the last 12 months At the end of September last year the company posted a quarterly loss in respect of write off costs in Alaska and Canada of 7bn as well as making a number of asset disposals including most recently a 51 stake in its Malaysian refining unit The company also warned at the time that profits would probably come in lower for the year and that was before the slide in oil prices seen in the period since then The dividend yield is currently 8 7 and Shell CEO Ben Van Buerden will continue to come under pressure to protect it he won t want to be remembered as the CEO who cut the dividend for the first time since 1945 This would suggest that things would need to get much worse for that to happen and both CEO s would also have to weigh up the likely response in terms of the share price if they did cut the payout which could well be ugly and do more harm than good in wiping billions off the share price The material whether or not it states any opinions is for general information purposes only and does not take into account your personal circumstances or objectives Nothing in this material is or should be considered to be financial investment or other advice on which reliance should be placed No opinion given in the material constitutes a recommendation by CMC Markets or the author that any particular investment security transaction or investment strategy is suitable for any specific person Sub menu Latest Blogs Oil truce sends WTI lower while stocks continue to recover North American traders return to oil production truce and fading China fears UK inflation in focus after McCafferty U Turn Stocks and oil rebound as positive news rebuilds confidence What s up with Yellen Gold and JPY today Open a live account Free demo account Losses can exceed your deposits Dublin Trader Network This forum event will be hosted by our Chief Market Analyst Michael Hewson and guest speaker Paul Wallace in the Gresham Hotel Dublin Register now UK inflation in focus after McCafferty U Turn Posted 16 02 2016 05 40 by Michael Hewson Read more Further reading Trading costs Relevant links Trading costs Trading costs US Earnings Season Facebook how low can CFD Trading

  • Investors to reflect on next move as Bank of Japan closes the month with more easing | CMC Markets Ireland
    on rates and given some of the weakness in some of this month s manufacturing numbers that isn t a given by any means After some fairly weak Empire manufacturing and Philadelphia Fed numbers earlier this month we get the latest Chicago PMI numbers for January Last month the index cratered from 48 7 to 42 9 its lowest level since July 2009 and though we should see a slight improvement it is still expected to remain weak at 45 4 With the Q1 data unlikely to be anywhere near complete by the March meeting it would be a huge leap of faith to even contemplate another rate rise under those circumstances and as such I would suggest a rate move higher in March is highly unlikely With the prospect of an imminent Fed rate rise receding undermining the US dollar attention will shift to today s latest flash EU CPI which is expected to see a jump to 0 4 for January after yesterday s positive German numbers which could make Mr Draghi s job in pushing the ECB further down the negative rate route slightly more problematic EURUSD continues to track higher finding support at higher levels Key support remains at last week s low at 1 0775 The key resistance remains just below 1 1000 where we have the 100 and 200 day MA s with a break targeting the 1 1200 area GBPUSD despite a brief trip down to the 1 4220 30 area the pound has continued to track higher and could well be on course for a move back towards the 1 4500 area We have trend line support at 1 4265 from the recent lows A move below 1 4125 argues for a test of the 1 4000 area EURGBP currently trading either side of the 0 7600 area with resistance at 0 7700 and support down near the 0 7480 area As long as we hold above 0 7480 the risk remains for a return to the 200 week MA at the 0 7900 level USDJPY still looks fairly firm above 116 00 we need to push through the 119 00 area to kick on towards the 120 00 level Interim support sits at 117 60 and below that at the lows last week just above 116 00 CMC Markets is an execution only service provider The material whether or not it states any opinions is for general information purposes only and does not take into account your personal circumstances or objectives Nothing in this material is or should be considered to be financial investment or other advice on which reliance should be placed No opinion given in the material constitutes a recommendation by CMC Markets or the author that any particular investment security transaction or investment strategy is suitable for any specific person Sub menu Latest Blogs Oil truce sends WTI lower while stocks continue to recover North American traders return to oil production truce and fading China fears UK inflation
