Last nonfarm before Fed rate lift off?

Economics by Otmane El Rhazi : The FOMC rate decision nears, now under two weeks away and it is still the view of many that today will be the last nonfarm payroll figure before the Federal Reserve commences its rate tightening cycle. In order to see the first hike in over nine years this month we will have to see a spectacular headline nonfarm payroll, which is expected to come in at 220k, at the same time it will help to see average earnings beat forecasts too with the Y on Y figure expected at 2.1%. The unemployment…Regards,Otmane El RhaziBusiness Assets ManagementForex & Equity TradingText/Mobile, +44 7414 782 320 RISK DISCLOSURE STATEMENT PAST RESULTS ARE NOT NECESSARILY INDICATIVE OF FUTURE RESULTS.

ECB leads way in setting dovish tone for Central Banks

Economics by Otmane El Rhazi : The ECB has admitted that deflation risks have still not gone away in a very dovish statement at their press conference today following their decision to keep interest rates at historical lows. Mario Draghi even went as far as to say that the Eurozone could easily experience some months of deflation in the near future.

ECB to set tone for Central Banks

Economics by Otmane El Rhazi : The focus on Central Banks will increase today as the ECB makes its latest policy announcement. This is significant in that it is the first of what is a major month of monetary policy making with the Bank of England’s rate decision and voting results next Thursday, followed by the much anticipated FOMC rate decision the Thursday after. The ECB has had a busy year after introducing its formal quantitative easing program and then having to work hard alongside politicians to prevent the break up…Regards,Otmane El RhaziBusiness Assets ManagementForex & Equity TradingText/Mobile, +44 7414 782 320 RISK DISCLOSURE STATEMENT PAST RESULTS ARE NOT NECESSARILY INDICATIVE OF FUTURE RESULTS.

Stabilisation doesn't mean end to rout

Economics by Otmane El Rhazi : For the second time this year some time out of the office has coincided with tumultuous movements in the financial markets. The first was back in January when the SNB removed its Swiss franc ceiling and a summer break has seen a considerable spike in volatility as Asian markets go into a tailspin. Not planning any more extended breaks for the rest of the year so perhaps the rout is over, but there remain a number of things that indicate this is unlikely to be the case. Whilst European indices…Regards,Otmane El RhaziBusiness Assets ManagementForex & Equity TradingText/Mobile, +44 7414 782 320 RISK DISCLOSURE STATEMENT PAST RESULTS ARE NOT NECESSARILY INDICATIVE OF FUTURE RESULTS.
