US Debt Default Date Gets Nearer. Will the Dollar Retain Dominance over the Pound?
gbp.png


It’s all so predictable, isn’t it?

Politics and suspense go hand in hand, and when it comes to potential cracks in the economy and central monetary policy of the United States, the issuer of the world’s de facto reserve currency, that’s what keeps the markets going.

Over recent weeks, the global media and the US Federal Reserve have been engaging in a dance with each other, involving speculation and suspense in the advent of the United States government’s ability or otherwise to be able to maintain payments on its debt commitments after June 1 this year.

That date is now fast approaching, especially considering that today is a public holiday across many nations in Europe and North America, giving the reality of the outcome just two working days to make itself known.

Interestingly, very little impact has been felt by traders of the US Dollar, and today’s currency market shows no change in this dynamic.

Ordinarily, if one of the world’s most important and influential economies is about to become insolvent, the currency issued by its central bank would depreciate like an iron girder being thrown off a precipice.

In the case of the US Dollar, this has simply not been the case at all, and the US Dollar has continued its rise against other majors, especially the British Pound.

EURO STOXX 50 Hits 2-month Low
img-009.png


During the first 3 days of this week, the price of EURO STOXX 50 (SX5E) has fallen by more than 3%.

This was facilitated by:
→ lower oil prices on the eve of the OPEC+ meeting scheduled for June 4. The Saudi oil minister urged market speculators to "be careful”;
→ uncertainty about the US debt ceiling. While a deal has been tentatively reached, it has yet to be officially approved by the Senate. There are only a few hours left;
→ reduced shares of European companies producing luxury goods due to falling demand;
→ disappointing data from China (we wrote about it yesterday), with which Europe is actively trading.

NASDAQ 100 Overtakes Bitcoin
nas.png


This is how prices for popular exchange-traded assets changed from March 1 to May 31:
→ The price of the NASDAQ 100 increased by almost 20%
→ The price of the S&P-500 increased by almost 6%
→ The price of gold increased by almost 7%
→ The price of bitcoin increased by almost 14%
→ The price of Ethereum increased by almost 12%

For a long time, cryptocurrencies were the leaders of the spring market, but in May, the NASDAQ-100 made a sharp leap upwards, thanks to the soaring of the NVDA share price and the hype around artificial intelligence (AI).

What will happen in summer?

According to Citigroup analysts, there is a risk that the rally in US technology stocks will end as investors want to take profits.

Perhaps the hype around AI will decrease, as its widespread adoption should take time. Barclays analysts note that past game-changing technologies took several decades to show up at the level of the entire economy. Take electricity, automobiles, and refrigeration, for example – US labor productivity skyrocketed in the 1950s, 3-4 decades after these technologies were introduced.

Market Analysis: AUD/USD Skyrockets
aud.png


Since the beginning of yesterday's trading session, the AUD/USD rate has increased by 1.7%. This is due to the difference in the monetary policies of the Fed and the RBA.

On the one hand, Philadelphia Fed President Patrick Harker said on Thursday that it was time to at least press the stop button for one meeting and see how it goes, referring to the June 13-14 meeting and the pause in a series of Fed’s interest rate hikes.

On the other hand, Australia raised the minimum wage by 5.75% from July 1, a decision that will affect the wages of 2 million people. This is an argument in favor of the fact that the RBA will continue to raise interest rates. The decision will be published on June 6th.

Market Analysis: "Black Monday" for Crypto Community
btc.png


On June 5, it became known that the SEC filed a lawsuit against the largest cryptocurrency exchange Binance, collapsing the price of bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies.

Here is the essence of claims:

→ improper handling of customer funds,
→ misleading investors and regulators,
→ violation of the law on activities with "unregistered securities” — the stablecoins of the BUSD exchange, the native BNB token, as well as a number of cryptocurrencies.

In addition, a lawsuit was filed against the head of the Binance exchange, Changpeng Zhao, who hastened to reassure customers: do not give in to fears, the exchange continues its work.

Market Analysis: A Week of Important News in Full Swing
img-009.png


On Tuesday, Australia's central bank raised interest rates from 3.85% to 4.10%. This is the highest value in 11 years. We wrote about the likelihood of this event in a post dated June 2. Speaking on June 7, bank governor Philip Lowe said: “We have been prepared to be patient [...] but our patience has a limit, and the risks are starting to test these limits,” warning of a possible further rise in rates.

Also yesterday, rates in Canada were raised to 4.75%, a 22-year high. Strong consumer spending, a recovery in demand for services, an increase in housing activity and the situation in the labor market show that excess demand is more stable than expected, the central bank said in a statement. Reuters writes that experts predict another increase next month, aimed at slowing down the overheating economy and stubbornly high inflation.

BTC/USD Analysis: Test of an Important Breakout Amid Scary News
btc.png


The cryptocurrency market is shaken by claims from the SEC. The lawsuits by the US financial regulator against the world's largest cryptocurrency exchange Binance and its head Changpeng Zhao have added to the lawsuits against the Coinbase exchange, whose shares are traded on Nasdaq. In response, Coinbase representatives said that the exchange has no plans to ban the trading of crypto assets that the SEC considers securities, and does not plan to phase out staking services.

Cryptocurrency market participants anxiously monitor incoming news:
→ Hearings are scheduled for June 14 on the SEC request to freeze Binance.US assets.
→ A division of Binance.US has drastically reduced the number of cryptocurrency pairs available for trading.
→ Coinbase does not see the risk of losing customers or banking partners; the exchange has more than $5 billion on its balance sheet, available to maintain operations and pay legal fees.

AUD/NZD and EUR/GBP Weekly Chart Outlook
lluIXt3.png


AUD/NZD is facing major resistance near the 1.0985 zone. EUR/GBP broke a crucial support at 0.8720 and might continue to move lower.

Important Takeaways for AUD/NZD and EUR/GBP Analysis

  • The Aussie Dollar started a recovery wave from the 1.0600 support against the New Zealand Dollar.
  • There is a key bullish trend line forming with support near 1.0600 on the weekly chart of AUD/NZD at FXOpen.
  • EUR/GBP started a major decline from the 0.9000 resistance zone.
  • It traded below a major bullish trend line with support near 0.8720 on the weekly chart at FXOpen.

AUD/NZD Technical Analysis
QMGtAX3.jpg


On the weekly chart of AUD/NZD at FXOpen, the pair found support near 1.0500. The Aussie Dollar formed a base above the 1.0600 pivot level against the New Zealand Dollar.

There was a decent increase above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the 1.1489 swing high to the 1.0479 low. Earlier this year, the pair even pumped above the 1.0920 resistance zone.

However, the bears were active near the 50% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the 1.1489 swing high to the 1.0479 low. The pair declined and revisited the 1.0600 support. It is again moving higher toward the 50-week simple moving average at 1.0920.

On the AUD/NZD chart, the pair could struggle to surpass 1.0920 and 1.0985. Only a successful daily close above 1.0985 might start a strong increase. The next major resistance sits near the 1.1100 level.

On the downside, the first major support is near a key bullish trend line at 1.0600. The next major support is near the 1.0300 level, below which the pair may perhaps extend its decline toward the 1.0150 level. Any more losses might call for a move toward the 1.0000 level.

The Crypto Market Is Under Pressure Due to SEC. Apart from This Coin
L7K9qYc.png


This week, the financial regulator SEC launched an attack on the cryptocurrency industry, suing the Binance and Coinbase exchanges, while classifying a number of popular coins as securities. As a result, since the beginning of June:

→ the price of bitcoin decreased by approximately 2.2%;
→ the price of Ethereum decreased by approximately 1.8%;
→ the price of BNB, the native token of the Binance exchange, has decreased by approximately 16%.

However, if we look at the Ripple chart today, we will see that the price of XRP has risen by about 2.5% since the beginning of the month. The fact is that Ripple has been in a state of litigation with the SEC since December 2020 (the commission also considers XRP a security). And the latest claims of the regulator have a lesser effect on the XRP exchange rate against the US dollar.

Moreover, rumors are circulating that the SEC has a presentiment that it can lose in a dispute with Ripple. And therefore, with new lawsuits against Binance and Coibase, it is trying to influence the decision in the case with Ripple, to reduce reputational risks.

GBPUSD Analysis: Will the British Pound Continue to Soar against the US Dollar Following 1-month High?
img9.png


During the latter part of 2022, the British Pound was continually the recipient of the proverbial ‘wooden spoon’ as it declined consistently over a series of months against the US Dollar.

That was a very interesting set of market conditions, bearing in mind that the US economy was struggling with the national debt, whereas the British economy was less encumbered, but had been buckling under high inflation and a cost of living crisis, which was far less of a concern across the United States, which by the last quarter of 2022, had got its inflation level down to almost half that of Britain.

However, the downward spiral that the British Pound experienced last year has long since stopped, and now things are quite different.

Today, the British Pound has reached a 1-month high point against the US Dollar and is at its second-highest value in 12 months at the mid-1.26 range.

BTCUSD Analysis: Clients Fleeing Binance
btc.png


According to various estimates, from USD 2.36 billion to USD 3.35 billion was withdrawn from the largest cryptocurrency exchange in 1 week. The head of the exchange, Changpeng Zhao, said that the drop in the balance could be exaggerated due to the depreciation of cryptocurrencies against the dollar, but fears are growing.

Hearings will be held today to freeze the assets of the Binance.US exchange in a lawsuit filed by the SEC. By the way, Binance also received a complaint from regulators in Nigeria, a country leading in the adoption of cryptocurrencies in Africa.

Cryptocurrency market enthusiasts are given hope by a bill introduced yesterday by Congressmen Warren Davids and Tom Emmer, which involves the restructuring of the SEC and the dismissal of its head, Gary Gensler. However, believing that this will happen may be too naive.

In one week after the lawsuits from the SEC, the market capitalization of crypto decreased by approximately USD 75 billion. The decline leaders are crypto assets that the SEC classified as securities - ADA, BNB, MATIC and others - about 60 assets in total. Fortunately for enthusiasts, ETH and BTC are not among them.

USD/CNH Reaches Year-to-date High
img009.png


Over the past 2 months, CNH has appreciated about 4.4% against the US dollar, reflecting the differences in monetary policies in the world's two largest (and competing) economies.

Yesterday's statistics showed a decrease in inflation in the US, but its level is still far from the target values. It is expected that the Fed at today's meeting will take a break after 10 consecutive increases in the key interest rate, keeping the prospect of raising it until the end of the year. The decision will be published at 21:00 GMT+3, followed by Powell's press conference at 21:30.

In China, the central bank lowered key short-term interest rates on Tuesday. It is expected that rates on medium-term loans may be lowered on Thursday. Barclays predicts that the Central Bank of China will cut rates every quarter in 2023, as economic growth after the lifting of restrictions due to Covid is disappointing.

With China stimulating the economy and curbing inflation by shrinking the US economy, USD/CNH hit its highest since the start of the year, trading near 7.18 today. Thus, the quote is fixed above the level of 7.15, which acted as resistance at the beginning of the month.

BTCUSD Analysis: Bears Attack the Psychological Level
btc.png


Last night, the price of bitcoin fell below USD 25k for the first time since mid-March. And the bitcoin chart this morning shows sellers breaking through yesterday's low.

There can be two fundamental reasons for the dominance of sellers:

→ yesterday's press conference of the head of the US Federal Reserve (more details in the next post);

→ claims against the Binance and Coinbase exchanges by the US SEC regulator, which declared about 60 crypto assets as securities.

Market Reaction to the Fed's Decision
img009.png


Yesterday the Fed (as expected) kept the interest rate unchanged (after a series of 10 increases). However, the opinion of market participants that the rate peak has been reached has been called into question. At the Jerome Powell's press conference, it became known that:

→ the majority of FOMC members are against the rate cut;

→ there may be another increase at the end of the year;

→ high inflation situation may last 2 years.

The markets reacted with a rise in the US dollar. Accordingly, the currencies fell in pairs with the US dollar. Gold also fell in price to a minimum in 3 months — like bitcoin, by the way, and this is not the only similarity in the behavior of the price of gold and the main cryptocurrency.

EUR/USD Analysis: +1.4% in 2 Days
eur.png


The current high growth rate, which was last seen in November 2022, was the result of decisions by central banks:

→ on Wednesday, the US Federal Reserve kept the interest rate at 5.25%;
→ and on Thursday, the ECB raised the rate from 3.75% to 4%. Eurozone inflation will remain "too high for too long," Lagarde said. The possibility of a rate hike in July is "very likely".

If the Fed started to apply the tightening policy earlier and came to a pause in a series of rate hikes faster, in turn the ECB is taking similar actions, but with some lag in time.
