Pulling Out All the Stops

When unexpected unpleasantness unfurls, you can count on central banks to pull out all the stops. Such is the case with the British election results which, like Brexit, have wreaked havoc on FX markets.

EURGBP, having broken down from its rising red channel dating back to mid-2015, was well on its way to a perfectly nice backtest at .80ish. Instead, it’s backtesting the broken red channel itself. Hence…the stop pulling.It should start with nice bounces from USDJPY and CL — which, as discussed yesterday, have already reached interim bottoms — and, of course, a sharp plunge by VIX.

Look for USDJPY to pop through its SMA200 for good measure… …and CL at least hold its own in the midst of strong selling pressure.
