15.07.2019 - “Markets expected gold prices to push higher given that Chinese growth was the slowest in almost 30 years. However, if you look at the bigger picture, it is still above the 6% level ... Hence we’re seeing this mixed reaction with gold,” said Lukman Otunuga, research analyst at FXTM... "Gold is waiting for a fresh directional catalyst. Today is a slow start for gold, but that doesn’t mean it’s going to be a slow week,” Otunuga added.

15.07.2019 - The Chinese government is likely to do whatever it takes to keep its growth rate above 6%, says Hussein Sayed, Chief Market Strategist at FXTM: "Today China reported its slowest rate of quarterly economic expansion in almost three decades. The economy grew 6.2% in Q2, in line with markets’ expectations, but 0.2% below Q1 growth. Policymakers will likely defend the 6% growth levels over the second half of 2019 by escalating stimulus measures, whether it’s in the shape of fiscal or monetary. On the bright side, industrial output grew 6.3% in June [...]."

11.07.2019 - "... Powell's speech on Wednesday essentially frames the July FOMC policy meeting as a decision between a 25- or 50-basis point rate cut. Whether FOMC officials will opt for the 'kitchen knife' or the 'machete' when cutting US interest rates can have a broader effect on global sentiment," said Han Tan, FXTM's market analyst.

11.07.2019 - Hussein Sayed, FXTM Chief Market Strategist said: "[...] The markets have clearly priced in an outcome of a 25-basis points rate cut in July.

Investors now see the chance of 50-basis points rate cut at 29%, up from 7%. Expectations of an aggressive move by the Fed dragged US 2-year treasury bond yields 8 basis points lower, its biggest daily move in three weeks."

08.07.2019 - "Investors have shifted into the mentality of 'weaker the better,' suggesting that weaker economic data across the globe will force central banks to begin a synchronized easing in monetary policy," said Hussein Sayed, chief market strategist at FXTM.

04.07.2019 - Hussein Sayed, FXTM's Chief Market Strategist said "... The dovish shift in the Federal Reserve’s policy stance is likely to drive the dollar lower in Q3 [...]. The reason for the dollar’s likely underperformance is the Fed has much more room to cut interest rates than its central banking peers in developed economies. This will result in a shrinking gap in interest rate differentials, with the yen likely to be the biggest beneficiary from another round of monetary easing, especially if trade uncertainty persists through the third quarter of 2019..."

However, given how the implemented tariffs are denting global growth and still remain unresolved—nothing much has changed,” wrote Lukman Otunuga, research analyst at brokerage FXTM. “With the underlying factors weighing on investor confidence still in play, this illusion of market stability may be tested as the second half of 2019 gets under way,” he said.

27.06.2019 - If negotiations over the weekend don't go well, it would likely cause a panic that the market volatility seen over the last 12 months will continue for quite some time, Jameel Ahmad, global head of currency strategy and market research at FXTM, said in an interview with Markets Insider.
