    FX 4 Next Week: How to play the fading pound
    GBP's move looks overextended and in a relatively quiet data week this could favour consolidation. Elsewhere, Greece has repercussions for USDCHF call options; there is potential for EURJPY and AUD downside; and could USDJPY finally make a move higher after months on the sidelines?

    FX Board: USD storming stronger across the board
    The USD is raging to the upside after a higher than expected core US CPI reading for April and as traders were caught sleeping ahead of a three-day weekend. This is a promising signal for the USD bulls that the dollar's rally is set to fully re-engage next week, even if a number of key lines have yet to be crossed.

    The Tories can rule for 20 years...if the eurosceptics shut up
    David Cameron, like Margaret Thatcher and Tony Blair before him, has captured the mood of British voters, who rejected the Labour party's shift to the left under Ed Miliband.

    Morning Markets: Draghi ready to fight
    European Central Bank president Mario Draghi may well come out swinging this morning after the US Fed's Stanley Fischer could not resist a swipe at the whole euro project last night. Expect potential EURUSD fireworks if the language gets tasty.
