GBP/USD Eyes Bullish Breakout While EUR/GBP Consolidates Losses
gbp.png


GBP/USD is eyeing a key upside break above the 1.2470 resistance zone. EUR/GBP is now consolidating losses above the 0.8825 support.

Important Takeaways for GBP/USD and EUR/GBP

  • The British Pound is slowly moving higher from the 1.2365 support against the US Dollar.
  • There is a key bearish trend line forming with resistance near 1.2440 on the hourly chart of GBP/USD at FXOpen.
  • EUR/GBP started a downside correction from the 0.8860 resistance zone.
  • There is a major bullish trend line forming with support near 0.8825 on the hourly chart at FXOpen.

GBP/USD Technical Analysis
gbpx.jpg


On the hourly chart of GBP/USD at FXOpen, the pair found support near the 1.2365 zone. The British Pound formed a base and started a decent increase above the 1.2400 resistance against the US Dollar.

The pair even spiked above 1.2440 and the 50-hour simple moving average. However, upsides remained capped near the 1.2470 zone. The pair is now consolidating near the 50-hour simple moving average and the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the 1.2367 swing low to the 1.2451 high.

On the downside, there is a major support forming near the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the 1.2367 swing low to the 1.2451 high at 1.2400.

The next major support is near the 1.2365 level. If there is a downside break below the 1.2365 support, there is a risk of a sharp decline. In the stated case, GBP/USD may perhaps revisit the 1.2300 support. Any more losses could lead the pair toward the 1.2250 support.

On the upside, resistance is near a key bearish trend line at 1.2440. The pair might attempt a fresh increase if the RSI stays above 50. The next major resistance is near the 1.2470 level. A clear move above the 1.2470 level could spark a rally toward the 1.2540 level.

The next major resistance is near the 1.1070 level. Any more gains might open the doors for a move toward the 1.1120 level. If there is no move above 1.1015, the pair might start a fresh decline. On the downside, immediate support is near the trend line at 1.0970.

The next major support is near the 1.0945 level. A downside break below the 1.0945 support could start a steady decline toward the 1.0910 level.

AUDUSD Analysis: Breakout of Important Support
aud.png


Yesterday's report showed that inflation in Australia in the first quarter of 2023 fell from a 33-year high. The consumer price index rose only by 1.4% in annual terms, although analysts had expected +1.9%.

Now market participants are focusing on the meeting of the Reserve Bank of Australia on May 2; it is expected that it will resume raising rates and thereby complete the pause made after a series of 10 increases.

Reacting to the news, the Australian dollar broke through the low of April, while the daily AUDUSD chart shows that the market as a whole looks weak, because:

→ important support (1), which has been in effect since autumn 2022, has been breached;

→ rebounds from this line were weak, the price did not reach the median line (2);

→ MA (200) points down.

The bears may make even more progress today, as at 15:30 (GMT+3) the US GDP and unemployment news will be published, which may strengthen the USD.

  • A key bullish trend line is forming with support near $1,982 on the hourly chart of gold at FXOpen.
  • Crude oil prices declined heavily below the $79.00 and $76.50 support levels.

Gold Price Technical Analysis
goldx.jpg


On the hourly chart of Gold at FXOpen, the price formed a base above the $1,976 support zone. The price started a decent increase and was able to clear the $2,003 resistance zone.

However, the bears were active near the $2,010 resistance. There were more than two attempts to clear the $2,010 resistance but the bulls failed. It reacted to the downside and retested the $1,976 support.

The price is now rising and trading near the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $2,003 swing high to the $1,974 low. Initial support on the downside is near a key bullish trend line at $1,982.

The first major support is near the $1,976 level. The main support sits near the $1,971 level. If there is a downside break below the $1,971 support, the price might decline heavily.

The next major support is near $1,960, below which the bulls could aim for a test of $1,950. On the upside, the bulls are facing resistance near the 50-hour simple moving average at $1,992. It coincides with the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $2,003 swing high to the $1,974 low.

An upside break above the $1,992 resistance could send the price toward $2,003. Any more gains may perhaps set the pace for an increase toward the $2,010 level.

EURJPY Climbs to Its Highest in Over 8 Years
eurjpy.png


On Friday morning, the EURJPY rose above 149 yen per euro on news from Japan. There, unemployment rose to 2.8% (expected 2.5%, last month 2.6%, a year ago 2.6%), it was higher only in the summer of 2021 (2.9%).

Market participants also followed the meeting of the Bank of Japan, which is now managed by Kazuo Ueda. As expected, the Bank of Japan said it would maintain ultra-low interest rates. However, at the same time it became known that the bank will conduct a "broad review of monetary policy."

It is possible that this revision will lay the groundwork for Kazuo Ueda's phasing out of the massive stimulus program pursued by his predecessor.

Perhaps the level of 148 yen per euro (1), which previously served as resistance, will now become a support for the bulls to try to break through the psychological mark of 150 yen per euro. In 2014, this mark turned out to be unattainable for them.

Unexpected Interest Rate Hike In Australia Strengthens AUD
aud.png


According to Reuters, market participants were waiting for a pause in a series of interest rate hikes, as the data showed a slowdown in inflation. However, the Reserve Bank of Australia on Tuesday raised the rate by 25 basis points.

"Inflation in Australia has passed its peak, but at 7 percent is still too high and it will be some time yet before it is back in the target range," said governor Philip Lowe.

As a result, the Australian dollar jumped by about 1% against major currencies. It's a tumultuous start to the week after May 1, which was a public holiday for the financial industry in many countries. Note that news from the Reserve Bank of New Zealand, as well as from the Fed, is expected tomorrow.

btc.png


Bitcoin failed to continue its bullish momentum from last week, and after touching a high of $29,961 on April 30, it declined below the $28,000 handle today in the European trading session.

We can clearly see a shooting star pattern below the $29,961 handle on the H1 timeframe.

Bitcoin continues to move in a correction phase after crossing the $29,000 level, which is indicative of weakness in the immediate short term.

Both the STOCH and STOCHRSI are in overbought zones, which means that in the immediate short term, a decline in the price is expected.

We can see a bearish opening of the markets this week. The prices of Bitcoin are ranging near a new 1-month low.

The relative strength index is at 38.41, indicating very weak demand for Bitcoin and the continuation of the selling pressure in the market.

Bitcoin is now moving below 100-hour and 200-hour exponential moving averages.

Most of the major technical indicators are bearish, which means that in the immediate short term, we can expect a fall to $27,500 and $27,000.

The average true range indicates less market volatility with mild bearish momentum.

  • Bitcoin bearish reversal is seen below $29,961.
  • The RSI remains below 50, indicating a bearish market.

Brent Analysis: Crude Oil Is at Lowest Point in Over a Month as US Economy Teeters and Supply Changes
oil.png


Over the past year, the price of crude oil has been interestingly volatile.

In keeping with other periods in modern history during which the United States has been involved in geopolitical conflicts with regions outside of the Western world, oil prices have been varying with verve and vigour since 2020.

Back in the 1970s, the famous' oil crisis' was caused by members of the OPEC oil-producing nations in the Middle East invoking a trade embargo against the United States following the 1973 Yom Kippur War, which took place between the State of Israel and some of its neighbours.

The result was extremely high oil prices across Western nations, particularly the United States, due to a lack of supply that could not meet the demand and fuel-saving measures such as the introduction of a 55-mile-per-hour speed limit for motor vehicles.

Due to its nature as a consumable commodity, oil is not only a tradeable asset but also an energy product, and the oil-producing nations can use it as a bargaining tool on the political table.

Over the past year, the price of crude oil has varied dramatically due to the trade sanctions placed on the Russian Federation by North American and European nations, which have meant that Russian oil companies have not been able to access their bank accounts in which oil supply is usually settled in such nations, hence the need for Western customers to settle directly in rubles to bank accounts in Russia, or to have to face restricted supplies.

More recently, just one month ago, Saudi Arabian oil giants reported that they intended to scale back oil production by as much as 500,000 barrels per day in an effort to bolster oil prices as part of a large-scale attempt by OPEC+ nations.

The status quo has now largely been accepted, and oil supply has been generally steady worldwide, with price fluctuations now part of the trading landscape and the everyday reality for consumers.

In Britain, the government introduced a 'cost of living allowance,' payable to many members of the public, in order to assist with the ongoing cost of living crisis, in which the cost of fuel to heat homes or drive to work are both important factors.

This week, however, the price of oil has dropped significantly. Brent Crude took a sudden dive in price yesterday from $77.03 per barrel at 8.30 am during the European trading session to $73.60 during the night.

EURUSD Analysis: Market Reaction To The Fed's Decision
eurusd.png


The Fed raised the rate yesterday by 0.25%, to 5.25%.

→ Now market participants expect a pause in the tightening policy. Moreover, the WSJ is hinting that the rate hike cycle may already be over.

→ According to Powell, it is important to raise the US debt ceiling, but not just raise it, but raise it on time (that is, not drag it out).

→ The Fed believes that the banking system is reliable and there is no cause for concern (by the way, PacWest bank shares fell 50% yesterday — bank management is considering selling it).

Although the decision was expected, it caused increased volatility:

→ US stock market indexes declined.

→ Gold jumped in price.

→ The US dollar index fell to dollar lows. Accordingly, the major currencies rose against the USD.

GBP/USD Reaches High Since the Beginning of the Year
gbp.png


Today, the British pound has updated its maximum since the beginning of the year. Here are the factors that contributed to this:

→ weakness of the US dollar due to the threat of default. The FT relays Yellen's words that the US Treasury Department's ability to bypass the default is running out;

→ the US dollar's weakness due to the banking crisis. According to media reports, 722 US banks have unrealized losses of more than 50% of capital;

→ the upcoming meeting of the Bank of England (Thursday, at 14:00 GMT+3). A rate increase is expected, which may not be the last.
