CNBC
12.01.2017 - "With the engine behind the Dollar's aggressive appreciation partly attributed to optimism over Trump boosting US growth via fiscal spending, the uncertainty presented yesterday should expose prices to renewed downside risks," said Lukman Otunuga. "While the news conference covered topics about the Russian hacking reports, Trump's separation of his business empire and repeated criticism of the media, the lack of details of the President-Elects administration's plans for economic stimulus simply left Dollar bullish investors empty handed," he said.

    12.01.2017 - The news conference “failed to provide the much-needed clarity on future fiscal policies,” said Lukman Otunuga, a research analyst for FXTM. “The lack of details of the president-elect’s administration’s plans for economic stimulus simply left dollar bullish investors empty-handed. It seems likely that dollar sensitivity intensifies this month as the renewed Trump uncertainty keeps investors on edge.”

      The Telegraph
      12.01.2017 - However, Lukman Otunuga, of FXTM, cautioned: "Regardless of the short-term gains, sentiment remains bearish towards the Pound with the ongoing Brexit woes eventually sabotaging upside gains. "Sellers may be encouraged to exploit the technical bounce on the GBPUSD to drag prices back down lower towards 1.2000 in the medium to longer term."

        11.01.2017 - "There is a risk of the hard Brexit fears becoming the dominant theme that ensures sterling remains depressed for prolonged periods," said FXTM research analyst Lukman Otunuga. "Although UK economic data continues to display resilience against the Brexit turmoil, the persistent Brexit-induced uncertainty has effectively dented investor attraction towards the pound."

          The Telegraph
          10.01.2017 - However, Lukman Otunuga, of FXTM, cautioned: "Sterling remains imprisoned by the hard Brexit concerns while uncertainty motivates bears to attack ruthlessly at any given opportunity. While there continue to be talks of the EURUSD parity, the GBPUSD parity could also become a reality if the Brexit turmoil pressures the Bank of England to adopt a dovish approach. "The bearish combination of Sterling weakness amid the Brexit woes and Dollar strength from the prospects of higher US rates has made the GBPUSD fundamentally bearish."

                09.01.2017 - FXTM research analyst Lukman Otunuga added the pound faced a drastic decline this week, amid conflicting reports over the government's Brexit strategy. "With the battle of words between politicians on how the government had a 'muddled thinking' over Brexit adding to the uncertainty, sterling should be destined to sink lower this week," he said. "It should be kept in mind that uncertainty remains the name of the game when dealing with the pound and such should make the weakness a recurrent theme."

                  04.01.2017 - Whether prices can continue those gains will depend on “multiple factors,” with the biggest one being compliance to production cuts, Hussein Sayed, chief market strategist at FXTM, said in a emailed note. “It’s in no one’s interest not to comply, but historic figures show that delivering on previous production cuts has been poor.” “With all these unknowns, we will likely see prices moving in tight ranges in the first quarter until we get a clearer picture,” said Sayed.

                    04.01.2017 - Lukman Otunuga, research analyst at FXTM, said in a note that "dollar strength may become the new norm this quarter as the combination of repeatedly positive economic data and prospects of higher US rates attract investors to the currency." "With the Trump effect still fuelling the bull rally and optimism rising over fiscal stimulus boosting US economic growth, the Dollar may be destined to be a champion amongst other major currencies once again," he said.

                      03.01.2017 - "With prices already rushing to 18 month highs during trading on Tuesday one can see how the expectations of a production cut continues to provide a lifeline to the commodity," Lukman Otunuga, research analyst at FXTM, said in a note. "While the current gains in oil are undeniably impressive, gains are at risk of being limited if any complications or delays arise from the proposed cut deal."

                        29.12.2016 - “Sentiment remains firmly bullish towards the dollar with the cocktail of positive U.S. domestic data, hawkish Fed comments and heightened expectations of an improvement in U.S. economic growth magnetizing investors to the currency,” Lukman Otunuga, a research analyst for FXTM wrote in a note to clients. “With speculations heightened over the Fed raising U.S. interest rates further in 2017, the dollar should remain king in the beginning of 2017.”

                          23.12.2016 - "Crude failed to maintain gains this week following the unexpected build in U.S. crude stockpiles, which revived the oversupply concerns," said Lukman Otunuga, a research analyst with FXTM. "With some anxieties still lingering over the compliance side of the unexpected cut agreement, oil could end up extremely volatile with losses expected if production fails to decline."

"We can barely see any significant moves in equities, fixed income or even currency markets today, suggesting that more consolidation is expected throughout the remaining days of 2016."

                                22.12.2016 - It’s a fair question to ask, as investors watch the index back off what seemed a sure thing only a few days ago. Some, like FXTM’s Hussein Sayed, say breaking that psychological level could open the door to more buyers, as it suggests bulls are still in control.
