The Second Week of June 2019 mood in the FX market was soured by the Hong Kong civil unrest with traders contemplating safer havens in the midst of worsening tariff tiffs. Forex Broker comparison service FXBrokerFeed brings you some updated news, and trends in the FX Broker Market, featuring cybersecurity outfit CrowdStrike initial IPO offering and Hang Seng jitters.

Hong Kong Protests Sour Market Mood

The protests over legislation allowing extradition of citizens to China turned violent with protestors crashing with police. The Hang Seng Index dropped by nearly 2% despite the Hong Kong dollar maintaining resilience as traders ponder possible outcomes.

FXBrokerFeed contends that any prolonged civil unrest in the important global finance enclave could sour market sentiment and affect liquidity. It may also affect financial markets in the rest of Asia to compound a situation getting worse with escalating tariff wars.

FXBrokerFeed also forecasts likely scenarios of traders scrambling to safe havens such as gold but the yen could be a major beneficiary in the event situation is unyielding. And a rising yen could spin and engulf the global financial market in a bear scenario.
