Ontario, Canada - June 18, 2019 /NewsNetwork/ —

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.

CrowdStrike Holdings, Inc. has gone public with an initial offer of 18 million Class A shares according to S-1/A filing in the US. The offer value at $522 million has been approved for listing on the Nasdaq under ticker symbol CRWD.

FXBrokerFeed observes CrowdStrike’s heavy investment in cybersecurity to rank high in the rapidly diversifying Cloud Business. They are flexing muscle at a time when cyberattacks are escalating to play havoc in the market.

The company more than doubled its year-on-year revenues to $249.8 million in fiscal 2019. Lead underwriters for the IPO are Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan, Bank of America, Merrill Lynch and Barclays.

Europe's specialty food makers brace for US tariffs

Oct 23, 2019

MILAN — European producers of premium specialty agricultural products like French wine, Italian Parmesan and Spanish olives are facing a U.S. tariff hike due Friday with a mix of trepidation and indignation at being dragged into a trade war they feel they have little to do with. The tariffs on $7.5 billion on a range of European goods were approved by the World Trade Organization as compensation for illegal EU subsidies to plane maker Airbus. The U.S. has some leeway in deciding what goods it puts tariffs on. So while it is taxing European aircraft goods an extra 10%, it...

The Latest: British govt insists there is Brexit progress

Oct 23, 2019

BRUSSELS — The Latest on Britain's plans to leave the European Union (all times local): 10 a.m. The British government says talks with the European Union are making progress, despite the lack of a breakthrough overnight. Prime Minister Boris Johnson's office says talks are resuming Wednesday after a "constructive" session that lasted late into the night in Brussels. Johnson is eager to strike a deal at an EU summit starting Thursday so the U.K. can leave the bloc in good order on the scheduled date of Oct. 31. But both sides say gaps remain over plans for maintaining an open...

Bulgarian prime minister condemns soccer racism

Oct 23, 2019

SOFIA, Bulgaria — Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borissov condemned the racist behavior of his country's soccer fans on Tuesday, a day after the national team played England in a European Championship qualifying match. Local fans made Nazi salutes and directed monkey noises at the black players on England's national team. England won 6-0, but the match was halted twice in an effort to stop the abuse. "It is unacceptable that Bulgaria, one of the most tolerant countries in the world where people of different ethnicities live in peace, to be associated with racism and xenophobia," Borissov wrote in a post...

Kosovo election winner in no rush to restart Serbia talks

Oct 23, 2019

PRISTINA, Kosovo — A left-wing party leader poised to become Kosovo's next prime minister said Tuesday he isn't in any rush to restart formal talks intended to normalize relations with Serbia and won't lift the previous government's 100% tariff on Serb imports. In a general election held Sunday, Albin Kurti's Movement for Self-the Determination, or Vetevendosje, defeated center-right political groupings formed by former Kosovo Liberation Army fighters who had governed since 2007. Kosovo, a former Serbian province, declared independence in 2008, a decade after an insurrection by KLA fighters and Serbian strongman Slobodan Milosevic's bloody crackdown launched a 1998-99 war....

AP sources: Trump allies sought changes at Ukraine utility

Oct 23, 2019

KYIV, Ukraine — As Rudy Giuliani was pushing Ukrainian officials last spring to investigate one of Donald Trump's main political rivals, a group of individuals with ties to the president and his personal lawyer were also active in the former Soviet republic. Their aims were profit, not politics. This circle of businessmen and Republican donors touted connections to Giuliani and Trump while trying to install new management at the top of Ukraine's massive state gas company. Their plan was to then steer lucrative contracts to companies controlled by Trump allies, according to two people with knowledge of their plans. Their...
