Forex news


Heading into the London close session, the market is trading with a spike in volatility, and thus a rise in traded volumes as market participants continue to favour a risk-off trend. The US dollar is trading in a positive trend against the majority of its major counterparts on Thursday following the release of its Initial Jobless Claims data, which printed 283k, missing market expectations of 282k, edging higher from its previous level of 266k month on month.


Heading into the London afternoon/New York open session, the market has continued to trade in a risk-off trend owing largely to positive data points out of both China and the Eurozone on Thursday, during the London open session. French Manufacturing Purchasing Managers Index data, released on Thursday came in at 47.3, missing market expectations of 48.5, down from its previous level of 48.8 month on month.


Heading into the London open session, the market is trading with an overriding risk-off theme, which has seen safe haven assets such as Gold give up marked gains on Thursday along with a move lower in the Japanese yen in favour of the more risky classes and currencies.

Chinese HSBC Manufacturing data came in at 50.4, beating expectations of 50.3, up from its previous level of 50.2 month on month, which has in turn capped market bears’ fears, if only over the short-term about the potential slowdown in China’s growth.
