    What to make of Corbyn's QE gambit?

    The Telegraph
    Newly-elected Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has said he wants to introduce a 'people's' quantitative easing as opposed to the conventional QE that in the popular misconception came to mean "giving money to the banks," writes Roger Bootle. But, while people's QE might seem to offer a painless and cost-free form of finance via a combination of conventional QE and increased government spending via the issue of gilts, eventually inflation would seep into the system imposing its own cost. Any other stance on this is "delusional", says Bootle.

    Forget the EU vote...GBP is set for sterling gains against the euro

    Forget the EU vote...GBP is set for sterling gains against the euro
    Since the UK's in/out referendum on EU membership is expected in late 2017, we don't think the British pound is currently trading on the probabilities of that event. What will drive GBPEUR instead is the strength of UK growth compared to the Eurozone; the level of UK inflation and what that means for UK monetary policy; and the health of UK public finances.

    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. If it can successfully mollify its eurosceptic element, the Conservatives have an opportunity to become the natural party of power for the next 20 years.

    FX 4 Next Week: How to play the EURUSD downslide
    The dollar's downturn against euro continues, and could take another leg lower. Elsewhere, whatever the outcome of the expected Greek resolution next week, it is likely to have a strong bearing on the direction for CHF. There's also potential for more EURGBP downside, while the strength of the outperforming Aussie dollar is on the wane.
