Hawkish Fed Presidents Repeat Calls for FOMC to Raise Rates (News 13/11/15)

With Wall Street rattled by the prospects of higher interest rates, two Federal Reserve Bank Presidents argued loudly for a December rate hike during an event called 'Rethinking Monetary Policy,' held at the Cato Institute in Washington D.C. on Thursday. James Bullard, the President of the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis, said its time for liftoff. ‘I have been an advocate of ending the FOMC’s near­ zero nominal interest rate policy. My case is straightforward,' said Bullard during a speech.

Pound/Dollar: Expected Fall to 1.5145

On Thursday the pound/dollar was trading above the LB in a range of 70 points. In the first half of the day the rate dropped to 1.5173 and in the second it returned to 1.5240. It’s now at 1.5199. If European trading sees a break of the 1.5191 support (LB and trend), I’ll be expecting a weakening of the pound to the 67th degree at 1.5145 (technical signal without any fundamental news).

Euro/Dollar: Expected Fall to 1.0737 by Day’s End

On Thursday, trading of the euro/dollar closed up. Sharp fluctuations on the euro were caused by ECB president Draghi’s speech and by speeches from US Fed representatives. Draghi promised to reassess QE in December and the Fed speakers came out with conflicting words: they don’t know exactly when the US interest rate will be increased. Yellen kept her lips tight with regards to US monetary policy.

Euro/Dollar: Likely Growth to U3

On Wednesday the US was on holiday. The stock markets were operating as normal, but the banks and the bonds market were off. Trader activity was low. Draghi didn’t mention monetary policy so there was no reaction to his speech. His speech could have a significant effect on the market during today’s press conference after the ECB has convened.
