Commentary

13th December Market Commentary

President Trump tweeted, that the Phase One US/China trade deal was ‘VERY close’ to a ‘BIG DEAL’. This sent US equity markets back in to record territory and overwhelmed the market narrative. Earlier the Fed had left rates unchanged, in a dovish statement, which speculated that little action would be taken in 2020. The Fed confirmed the strong state of the US economy and recognised that current monetary policy would suffice. The ECB met, with new President LaGarde, which confirmed that downside risks to the EU economy were’ less pronounced’. Interest rates were left at zero and previously announced additional QE, continues. The EUR broke back above 1.1100, while the GBP slipped back below 1.3100, as the Brexit election results come in. A Conservative victory should result in a big boost to the GBP.

The positive news on the US/China trade front supported the commodity currencies, with the AUD pushing up towards 0.6900, while the NZD traded 0.6570. The Central Bank action was in line with market expectations and thus cleared the way for President Trump to dominate markets with trade speculation while the UK election is the big Geo-Political event dominating markets to close out the week.
