  • Lead futures fell during evening trade in the domestic market on Tuesday as investors and speculators exited positions in the industrial metal amid sluggish physical demand for Lead by battery-makers in the domestic spot market.Traders also stuck to a cautious approach ahead of the crucial EU referendum on Thursday in which Britain will vote whether to break away from the European Union a move which could hurt the global economy and dampen the appetite for risky assets including commodities and push up the dollar with which metals have an inverse relationship.

ECONOMY NEWS :

  • Hedge funds, banks and insurance companies have recently jumped into “marketplace lending,” drawing the attention of U.S. regulators, who said on Tuesday they are concerned that borrowing by consumers and small businesses through online platforms may pose risks to U.S. financial stability.In its annual review of the U.S. financial system released on Tuesday, the Financial Stability Oversight Council (FSOC) consisting of all the country’s financial regulatory chiefs, also said it is watching events overseas, including this week’s “Brexit” vote and the turmoil in Venezuela. It also noted that China “is in the midst of long-term transitions in its economy,” which could have global implications.
  • Janet Yellen rebuffed any speculation that the Federal Reserve could provide emergency lending to Puerto Rico on Tuesday, telling Congress that any bailout to the debt-ridden commonwealth appears to be outside the U.S. central bank’s authority. “This is inherently a matter for Congress and is not something that’s appropriate for the Federal Reserve,” Yellen said in testimony before the Senate Banking Committee.
  • Financial markets need to consider the risks of relying heavily on the dollar-based London Interbank Offer Rate because this reference rate could stop being published, Federal Reserve Governor Jerome Powell said on Tuesday as a Fed-convened committee continued to zero in on an alternative to the so-called Libor.”Market participants are not used to thinking about this possibility, but benchmarks sometimes come to a halt,” Powell said in prepared remarks in New York for a roundtable discussion on a report on alternative reference rates.

IForex Market Trading Signals and News – 22 June 2016

INTERNATIONAL CURRENCY BUZZ :

  • Forex – Euro falls to fresh 3-week lows against sterling
  • Forex – Sterling hits 7-week highs ahead of Brexit vote
  • Forex – Aussie rises, kiwi holds steady ahead of Yellen remarks

EUR/USD
EUR/USD is currently trading with a decreasing upward momentum. Yesterday, the pair traded short as previously forecasted but could not hit our target support 1.1291. The previously daily candle is pretty much bearish and may lead to a rally to the lower side. Thus, we still expect further momentum to the lower side probably a break below 1.1291 is likely to push the price further to the lower side but should not go beyond 1.1142. We will only be interested in going long in case the pair clearly break above 1.1403. This pair should be traded alongside NZD/USD, AUD/USD and GBP/USD. These pairs have a strong positive correlation of up to +0.91 and will have a similar price action during this intraday.

GBP/USD
The pound rose to a new seven-week high against the dollar on Tuesday, extending Monday’s gains as opinion polls indicated growing support for a U.K. vote to remain in the European Union ahead of Thursday’s referendum.GBP/USD climbed 0.28% to 1.4767, the highest level since May 3. Sterling climbed around three cents on Monday, in its strongest rally in nearly eight years. Two opinion polls released on Monday indicated that support for the ‘Remain’ campaign had regained its lead over a vote to exit the 28-member bloc.An ORB poll for the Daily Telegraph newspaper showed that 53% of voters supported the Remain campaign, compared with 46% support for the Leave campaign.A poll published by NatCen also showed Remain on 53% and Leave at 47%. But a poll by YouGov for The Times newspaper showed Leave ahead on 44%, with Remain on 42%.
