    GBPUSD volatility has decreased in the last month as the market awaits the new conservative leader, and likewise the next UK Prime Minister. The pound has been trading below the 1.27 mark against USD over the past month, but increased uncertainty around Brexit could send the pound to levels of about 1.24 or lower.

    Boris Johnson was the man of the Brexit campaign in the 2016 referendum and has promised to drive Great Britain out of the European Union with or without a deal. Since that time Boris Johnson is getting closer to become the next UK Prime Minister, and that has hurt Pound Sterling.

    In the last week of July, the Conservative party members will vote to decide who will be the next leader. The new prime minister could seek to renegotiate parts of Theresa May’s deal; a non-binding political declaration, which sets out the future trade relationships between the Eurozone and Great Britain.

    Boris Johnson has been the favorite candidate amongst MPs, and bookmakers are giving it an 80% probability that he will become the next UK PM. It does, therefore, look like it is more or less a done deal that he will be the next PM.

    What to expect if Boris Johnson becomes the next UK PM?
    Boris continues to support the Brexit strongly and pledges to take Britain out of the EU on October 31st regardless if any deal is agreed or not with the EU. Only the UK Parliament can stop him if he wins his party leadership and that means that there is a risk of an early general election in the country, a scenario that will also hurt Sterling, as it is anticipated that Nigel Farage could get a larget share of the UK parliament with his Brexit Party.

    Currently, markets are pricing in a soft Brexit or a revocation of Article 50. However, as Boris Johnson heads to 10 Downing Street, these scenarios have become increasingly unlikely and with Boris in the driver seat, it looks like we are heading closer to a hard Brexit. Now markets have to evaluate how much the Sterling has discounted a Boris win and a no deal Brexit.

    The Pound got a hit on the chin in Spring, from 1.31 in April ended down to 1.25 in June as the no deal Brexit scenario emerged along with Boris favorite for Downing 10. FX experts think that a softer Brexit could provide a boost to the UK economy by providing confidence to consumers and certainty to companies.

    The best case scenario for the pound is a soft Brexit that can push the price up to 1.31 against the greenback (GBPUSD). The Bank of England can also boost the Pound. The latest UK interest rate decision came in as expected, keeping the interest rates at the current level but warned of the slowdown due to Brexit concerns. Any clues that UK interest rates might need to be raised in the future in a case of soft Brexit could lead to a sterling rally. Although the BoE has not been supportive to a rate cut in the recent policy meetings that might change if we get an agreement.

    In case of a no-deal Brexit, most forex traders expect that GBPUSD will visit the lows from October 2016 at 1.1964. As Boris Johnson is getting closer to be the next Prime Minister, markets has started to discount also a no deal Brexit. Although investors have to be cautious in the case of that extreme scenario, I don’t expect that the price will hit the 2016 low. The British economy has been preparing for two years now to handle any outcome. Many analysts forecast a 5% drop in GDP in the case of no-deal, but as we are heading closer to the deadline, I estimate that the impact will be less severe.

    One thing is for sure; the sterling will be in a roller coaster ride in upcoming months as Brexit headlines will cross wires, and we approach the October 31st deadline.

    Personal opinions today:
    U.S. non-farm payrolls and jobs report for June release today , the market focus on these data results. Since the US ADP payroll just 100,000, estimate the U.S. non-farm payrolls lower as well. But the market expected the US non-farm payrolls lower, just depends how lower. If the number of the non-farm payrolls below 200,000 means a slowing labor market and a slowing economic activity, which has the potential to deflation. The market prepared to cut interest rates by the end of the month. Suppose, today, the US non-farm payrolls were above 100,000 in June, if close to market expectations of 160,000. The unemployment rate keeps at 3.6%, and more importantly, the average hourly wages could keep rising. It believes it can change the market expectation and Fed rate may not cut, lead the dollar higher.
    The release of the U.S. jobs data, depending on the results and market expectations of the difference, may affect the level of federal reserve interest rates and price fluctuations by the U.S. Treasury bonds price, the market prices are volatile.

    The US non-farm payrolls rose to 224,000 in June, up from 75,000 in May, as the US labour market returned to expansion levels above 200,000. Average hourly wages in the United States rose a modest 0.2 percent in June as two key jobs data reduced the chances of the federal reserve cutting interest rates in this end of month.

    The U.S. jobs data improved, with the dollar index rebounding to 97 level. European currencies fell after the head of the European central bank said he was stepping up loose monetary policy in light of weak European economic data. In the short term, eurozone data showing growth could stabilize the euro.

The European central bank is strengthening its policy stance on easing monetary policy, and expects to maintain its policy stance on the eurozone.

    GBPUSD
    1.2500/1.2480 support

Gold prices and crude oil prices also have a chance of falling against other currencies. Then Fed chairman Powell made another presentation on the final day of the hearing, listening closely to Powell's presentation of the Fed's monetary policy.

International markets continue to grow and generate meaningful profits that boost the expansion in the rest of the world. The company has added 24.81 million users from the end of Q1 2018 until Q1 2019.

    The stock’s 52-week range is $231.23 to $419.77, and the capitalization stands at 166.9B. In the table below, you can find the NFLX stock price performance from one month to 10 years.

    The company for the first quarter of 2019 reported that average streaming paid users increased by 26 percent annually, while the Annual Revenue Per User (ARPU) shrunk by 2 percent over the year due to FX fluctuations. Excluding exchange rate issues, the international streaming ARPU increased 3 percent (YoY). Year over year total revenue growth of 22 percent compares against 40 percent in Q1’18, which boosted from several price changes that took place in Q4 2017 as well as forex. On a forex neutral basis, Q1 2019 revenue grew 28 percent year over year.

    The company expects to grow from 60 to 90 million users in the USA, based upon company’s history and the continued growth of online entertainment. The operating margin structure is set mostly top down. The company for the next quarter forecasts the revenues and decides what to spend, and how much margin they want in that period.

    Netflix started in 1997 as a DVD rental by mail, the company spent five years struggling to find a sustainable growth plan that was cash flow positive. The company spent most of the next five years competing with Blockbuster. The streaming business started in 2007, and internationally in 2010. The first original series started in 2013. The company became global in 2016, almost twenty years after starting Netflix. I expect in the coming decades, internet entertainment to replace TV, and the NFLX will be the major player in the industry.

    The competition has intensified in the last years as big internet and entertainment names enter the market such as Amazon Prime, Disney Plus, and Apple TV. A big advantage of the company is that is offering several different tiers of pricing so that clients can select a plan that best fits their needs. NFLX also tests different approaches to pricing with different plans and prices, to better cover client demand.

    FX exposure is a new headache for the company as it is growing internationally. NFLX engages in hedging, in which the spending on international markets is paid in the country currency to match the revenue collected from local users. The company also adjusts prices aggressively to mitigate the negative effects of foreign exchange risk.

    In the technical side, the picture is bullish for the stock as it trades above all major moving averages. The uptrend started from June 14 can lead the prices to new 52 week high; the catalyst for this move can be provided by the 2Q results. Immediate support for the stocks stands at $385 the high from May 3rd, while a break above can drive prices at $419 the 52 weeks high. On the downside, first support stands at $360 the 50 and 100-day moving average, while next support can be found at $342 the low from June 17th.

    NFLX will release its 2Q 2019 financial results and outlook on Wednesday, July 17th. The market expects EPS of $0.56 while the consensus for revenue is at $4.94B.
