Good Morning, President Trump dominated the headlines and the market’s attention last week, as he returned to the White House much earlier than anticipated full of vim and vigour. The markets responded positively, and risk appetite returned which helped beta currencies such as sterling, which ended slightly better on the week at $1.2975. There is still […]

Good Morning, The world’s markets waited all last week for the release of the Non-Farm payrolls data only for more serious news to partly side-line the event with the announcement that President Trump and his wife Melania had tested positive for COVID-19.
