Hello folks,

As markets become more volatile, we are left with more questions than answers. We are all looking for that crystal ball that will shed light on whats next :).

I am hoping to pass along some of our thoughts and analysis on the current/future market, and looking forward to learning for others views and perspectives as well!

See attached our Market Forecast for the month of July 2016

US Dollar: The US dollar has been the beneficiary of recent Brexit related volatility. With Britain voting to exit the EU, downside risks to the global economy have increased and have forced the Fed to remain on the sidelines longer. While the June US payrolls report was exceptional and the US economy continues to outperform, most analysts project the Fed to raise rates only once this year. Despite the Fed remaining on the sidelines longer, the greenback is expected to gain further ground against the majors for the remainder of 2016. Bias bullish (stronger USD)

Canadian Dollar: Enhanced uncertainties about the global economy courtesy of Brexit should restrain commodity prices and hence the Canadian dollar. Adding to the loonies woes is a dovish Bank of Canada that may pre-empt measures to stimulate growth. Furthermore, the ballooning current account deficit, lacklustre unemployment and the dependence of foreign capital flows that could dwindle are likely to weigh on the loonie. Most expect the loonie to give back some of its recent gains and trade between 1.30 1.35 in the coming months. Bias bearish (weaker CAD)

Euro: The battle against deflation is far from over in Europe. Fundamentals in the Eurozone continue to remain weak and long-term inflation forecasts remain well under the 2% ECB threshold. While the Fed is likely to remain on the sidelines, the European Central Bank is poised to provide more stimulus to an already sputtering economy. Economic and political risks continue to be stacked against the euro and most expect the euro to weaken over the coming months. Bias bearish (weaker EUR)

Japanese Yen: The Brexit vote and global uncertainty has undone most of the work the BoJ has tried to accomplish with devaluing the yen in the first half of the year. The global uncertainties created by the Brexit vote has pushed the yen a whopping 10% higher in the month of June and is now flirting with a break of the 100 level against the US dollar. The Bank of Japan is likely to ease policy in the months ahead in an attempt to devalue the yen. Bias bearish (weaker JPY)

British Pound: On June 23rd the UK voted to leave the EU. The referendum was the easy part. Exiting the EU will be a much more challenging process with economic implications that are likely to impact the UK economy for years to come. The immediate consequence of the vote has left the UK in a political vacuum and has already caused an aggressive repricing/downgrading of UK assets. Looking ahead, economic activity is expected to dramatically deteriorate forcing the BoE to add significant stimulus to fuel the economy. The GBP is likely to fall further in the coming months possibly reaching the mid to low 1.20s before stabilizing. Bias bearish (weaker GBP)

Mexican Peso: The Mexican Peso was severely impacted by the Brexit vote with the currency peaking at 19.52 before settling back in high-18 range. Although external developments have dominated the market for the last little while, domestic elements are likely to take hold over the coming months. MXN peso is expected to outperform as growth accelerates and the Banxico increases the fondeo rate possibly ahead of the Fed by the end of the year. Most analysts remain bullish on the MXN especially with the steady growth experienced in the US. Bias bullish (stronger MXN)

Currently, US dollar is unable to take the benefit of the risk off sentiments in the global markets and thus surged slightly after upbeat US home sales report. Most of traders were hesitating to trade on the currencies ahead of the US presidential debates which are due for today. The impact of their opinions might impact the overall market. Euro showed strength on the back of positive German IFO business climate data which came out as 109.5 against 106.3 previously. On top of it, Draghi repeated that they are flexible even after the Brexit. Markets will look forward to German import prices due for today.
