The Guardian
17.03.2017 - Lukman Otunuga of FXTM Research says the stock market bounce following Wednesday night’s Federal Reserve meeting is fading. Otunuga says: The “dovish hike” powered stock market rally slightly cooled off during Friday’s trading session with investors turning cautious ahead of the anticipated G20 meeting. Asian shares were mostly mixed as participants weighed on the prospects of fewer US interest rates increases this year.

    16.03.2017 - FXTM Chief Market Strategist Hussein Sayed says: “Thank you, Janet Yellen,” this is today’s market message to the U.S. Fed Chair. The greenback [US dollar] is falling while everything else is in green today after the Federal Reserve delivered on its promise to hike rates by 25 basis points. While this move was widely expected, many market participants were positioned for a more hawkish language and an upgrade in economic projections which didn’t happen

          14.03.2017 - “With the threat of an independence vote for Scotland adding to the horrible Brexit mixture, one can understand why the buying sentiment towards sterling remains frighteningly low,” said FXTM research analyst Lukman Otunuga in an note. If the pound falls below $1.21, then it’s likely sellers will drive it even lower, to $1.20, he said. “The great unknowns over the impact Brexit may have on the U.K. economy could ensure that the pound remains depressed for prolonged periods,” Otunuga said.

              13.03.2017 - FXTM chief market strategist Hussein Sayed reckons it’s a case of “buy the rumor, sell the news”. Investors are almost convinced that the Fed will move forward in tightening monetary policy, with speculators pricing in 89% chance of a rate hike according to CME’s FedWatch Tool. Friday’s robust non-farm payrolls report removed all doubts and now even skeptical investors believe that three rate hikes are the base scenario for 2017.

                13.03.2017 - "Expectations have solidified over the Fed raising U.S. interest rates this week following February's solid NFP (non-farm payrolls) figure," said UK-based Lukman Otunuga, research analyst at online currency broker FXTM. "If the economic projections of the FOMC members are bullish and suggest further U.S. rate hikes this year then the greenback (dollar index) may charge back above 102.00 in the short to medium term."

                  13.03.2017 - "Cocktail of uncertainty" "This bombshell development comes at a time where speculations have heightened over Theresa May potentially triggering Article 50 on Tuesday. With Sturgeon on a quest to obtain permission from the Scottish Parliament for a second referendum via the Section 30 process, the rising anxiety may expose sterling to downside shocks.   - Lukman Otunuga, FXTM

                      07.03.2017 - "The rising optimism over the Federal Reserve raising U.S. interest rates in March has encouraged sellers to repeatedly attack gold," said Lukman Otunuga, research analyst at FXTM. "Although risk aversion from geopolitical tensions in East Asia may provide some support for the zero-yielding metal, prices are looking increasingly pressured on the daily charts."

                        03.03.2017 - "Although the stock market rally has been phenomenal this quarter, investors should remain vigilant as the bearish attributes for a selloff still linger in the background. The political risks in Europe, Brexit woes and ongoing Trump uncertainties could still trigger a wave of risk aversion," said Lukman Otunuga, research analyst at FXTM, in a note.

Equities analysts and strategists including myself have been arguing for some time that if no further details were provided on how and when the proposed US tax reforms and spending plans will take place, the market rally should take a pause. However, US President Donald Trump provided no new details in his speech to Congress on Tuesday, and yet, stocks surged to new highs.

Global markets have been somewhat patient and even resilient against the persistent Trump uncertainties, but the crack could start to show if nothing new is brought to the table.

He said a March rate hike looks unlikely. But “a scenario where U.S. economic data repeatedly exceeds expectations ... could prompt the central bank to surprise markets by taking action in May.”

He said: "Although Britain’s economic growth accelerated faster than previously assumed in the final quarter of 2016 at 0.7pc, the noticeable decline in business investment in the same quarter has already triggered concerns of how the rising uncertainty will impact investment this year.
