AUD/USD Technical Analysis
RCqqlsS.png


On the hourly chart of AUD/USD at FXOpen, the pair struggled to stay above the 0.6800 level. The Aussie Dollar started a fresh decline below the 0.6760 support against the US Dollar.

There was a break below a key bullish trend line with support near 0.6750. The pair even settled below 0.6720 and the 50-hour simple moving average. A low is formed near 0.6655, and the pair is now consolidating losses.

Immediate resistance on the upside is near the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the 0.6821 swing high to the 0.6655 low at 0.6695.

The next major resistance is near 0.6720, above which the price could rise toward the 50-hour simple moving average and the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the 0.6821 swing high to the 0.6655 low.

A close above the 0.6760 level could start another steady increase in the near term. The next major resistance on the AUD/USD chart could be 0.6790.

On the downside, initial support is near the 0.6655 level. The next support could be the 0.6620 level. If there is a downside break below 0.6620, the pair could extend its decline toward the 0.6600 handle. Any more losses might send the pair toward the 0.6550 support.

BOJ’s decision Leads to Sharp Surge in Volatility
HZQbeyl.png


The interest rate in Japan has remained unchanged since 2016 at -0.1%. Thus, the leadership of the Bank of Japan, unlike its counterparts, is pursuing a stable ultra-soft policy. This morning, the expected decision to keep the interest rate was published, but the attention of traders was attracted by the intention of the Bank of Japan to offer the market 10-year government bonds (JGB) at a fixed rate of 1.0% instead of 0.5%. This is a hint at a possible tightening of policy, which could greatly affect the yen.

Against the backdrop of the latest news from the Fed and the Bank of Japan, the USD/JPY rate was extremely volatile. The extremes of the last 3 days indicate a range formed by support at 138.0 and resistance at 141.4. It is acceptable to assume that after a surge in volatility, the USD/JPY rate will consolidate within this range.

Note also that the support near 138.0 is reinforced by the SMA (100) and the lower boundary of the long-term channel. But it is possible that a surge in volatility could change the balance of supply and demand and lead to a bearish breakdown of the upward channel that has been operating in the USD/JPY market since the beginning of 2023.

jFabunk.png


On the hourly chart of GBP/USD at FXOpen, the pair started a fresh decline from the 1.3000 zone. As mentioned in the previous analysis, the British Pound would remain at risk of more downsides if it cleared the 1.2840 and 1.2805 levels against the US Dollar.

The pair extended its decline and tested the 1.2770 zone. A low is formed near 1.2762, and the pair is now attempting a fresh increase. There was a move above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the 1.2995 swing high to the 1.2762 low.

The pair is now consolidating below the 50-hour simple moving average. The GBP/USD chart indicates that the pair is facing resistance near a short-term contracting triangle at 1.2860.

The next major resistance is near the 50% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the 1.2995 swing high to the 1.2762 low at 1.2880. The main breakout zone could be 1.2900. If the RSI moves above 60 and the pair climbs above 1.2900, there could be another rally. In the stated case, the pair could rise toward the 1.3000 level or even 1.3050.

On the downside, there is a major support forming near 1.2805. If there is a downside break below it, the pair could accelerate lower.

The next major support is near the 1.2770 zone, below which GBP/USD could test 1.2740. Any more losses could lead the pair toward 1.2650.

Australian Dollar Plummeting After RBA Decision
nklAWwn.png


The Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) this morning decided to leave the interest rate at 4.10%, although market participants expected an increase to 4.35%.

According to the forecast of the central bank, inflation in Australia will return to its target range of 2-3% by the end of 2025 from the current 6%. At the same time, a warning was made that additional tightening (rate increase) may be required to curb inflation.

The GBP/USD Exchange Rate Falls to a Month’s Minimum
hfFzZ4x.png


Yesterday and today, the GBP/USD rate fell below 1.27 for the first time since July 6. A number of factors contributed to this:

  • strengthening of the US dollar index due to downgrading of the US credit rating by Fitch;
  • strong data on the ADP labor market — the number of jobs in the US, excluding the agricultural sector, increased by more than 300k over the month;
  • market expectation of news from the Bank of England, which will publish its interest rate decision today at 14:00 GMT+3.

According to Reuters, forecasts for the UK economy are disappointing. Market participants expect a 14th rate hike by the Bank of England by 0.25%.

cp8pvJa.png


On the hourly chart of GBP/USD at FXOpen, the pair started a fresh decline from the 1.2880 zone. As mentioned in the previous analysis, the British Pound extended losses below the 1.2800 pivot level against the US Dollar.

The pair even tested the 1.2620 support zone. A low was formed near 1.2620 and the pair is now attempting a fresh increase. There was a move above the 1.2680 resistance zone. Besides, there was a break above a key bearish trend line with resistance near 1.2725.

However, the pair struggled to clear the 1.2800 resistance zone. A high is formed near 1.2792 and the pair is now correcting gains. It is trading near the 50-hour simple moving average at 1.2725 and approaching the 50% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the 1.2620 swing low to the 1.2792 high.

On the downside, there is a key support forming near 1.2680. It is close to the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the 1.2620 swing low to the 1.2792 high.

If there is a downside break below the 1.2680 support, the pair could accelerate lower. The next major support is near the 1.2620 zone, below which the pair could test 1.2550. Any more losses could lead the pair toward the 1.2500 support.

On the upside, the GBP/USD chart indicates that the pair is facing resistance near 1.2750. The next major resistance is near the 1.2800 zone. A close above the 1.2800 resistance zone could open the doors for a move toward 1.2880.

BTC/USD Price Analysis: ADX Indicator Falls to the Lowest Level of 2023
nI0Zm1J.jpg


The latest news from the world of cryptocurrencies could be both bearish and bullish drivers:

→ PayPal launches a stablecoin that will be pegged to the dollar and backed by US Treasuries;

→ Cathie Wood believes that the SEC can approve several BTC ETFs at the same time;

→ the Central Bank of Brazil plans to launch its digital currency called DREX in 2024;

→ rumors about problems with the USDC stablecoin are spreading in the network;

→ the US Department of Justice is considering filing fraud charges against Binance.

However, the BTC/USD rate has stabilized around USD 29,000 per coin since July 25th. The bitcoin market is showing unusually low volatility (except for the surge associated with news from the Fed). At the same time, the ADX indicator, which helps determine the presence of a trend, fell to its lowest level since 2023. Obviously, this indicates that the market is flat. But note the trend that followed in early 2023 as the ADX fell close to its current low.

The Price of Brent Oil Approaching the Highs of the Year
6kR6zX0.jpg


The price is driven up by:

→ the policy of limiting oil production by OPEC+ countries. For example, Saudi Arabia last week announced a cut in production by 1 million barrels per day until the end of September, adding that the decision could be extended. Russia is also reducing production volumes. We wrote about the scenario of increasing growth in the price of Brent oil due to production cuts in a post dated July 7;
→ hopes/rumors that the Chinese authorities will stimulate the economy, which is not recovering enough after the lifting of COVID-related restrictions.

Selling pressure is driven by:

→ raising rates by Western central banks to fight high inflation.

Under the influence of these and other factors, the price of Brent oil rose close to the highs of the year around USD 87 per barrel, forming an upward channel. At the same time, in August, the price bounced strongly from its lower border twice, indicating the strength of demand. On the other hand, the progress of the bulls in the formation of the August high is very small, if you compare this peak with the previous one, set on the 2nd of August — a sign of the exhaustion of the bullish momentum.

It is reasonable to assume that the market can find a balance at current levels, and the price will enter the consolidation range, as holders of long positions can take profits after the increase in the price of Brent oil by more than 14% since July 1. At the same time, false breakdowns of the high of the year are not ruled out.

On the hourly chart of EUR/USD at FXOpen, the pair started a fresh decline from the 1.1040 zone. The Euro declined below the 1.1015 support zone against the US Dollar.

The pair even settled below the 1.1000 zone and the 50-hour simple moving average. A low is formed near 1.0929 and the pair is now correcting losses above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the 1.1042 swing high to the 1.0929 low.

If there is a downside break below 1.0910, the pair could drop toward 1.0880. The main support is near 1.0850, below which the pair could start a major decline.

XNGUSD: Natural Gas Price Hits 5-month High
x1AUyw4.jpg


The hostilities in Ukraine have drastically changed the world's natural gas transportation routes, and yesterday's information about possible interruptions in the supply of liquefied gas from Australia due to the planned strikes of workers led to the fact that the XNG/USD quote jumped above the psychological level of USD 3.0.

Citigroup analysts believe that gas prices in Europe could double by January if strikes in Australia, which is an important supplier of liquefied gas to Europe and Asia, drag on through the autumn.

And the FT writes that yesterday's growth was accelerated due to the fact that traders closed short positions, thereby increasing demand.

The XNG price chart shows that the extremes of summer are forming an ascending channel, and its upper limit has not yet been reached. The ability of the bulls to gain a foothold above the psychological level of USD 3.0 will indicate the strength of demand.

EURJPY Analysis: Highest Since Fall 2008
bet2tBR.jpg


Yen Weakening Drivers:

→ rising prices for energy resources. After all, Japan is a major importer.
→ The inflation index CGPI (corporate goods price index) indicates a slowdown in inflation. Therefore, this raises the likelihood that the Bank of Japan will maintain an ultra-loose monetary policy.

The growth of the euro against the yen is facilitated by the fact that the ECB is pursuing a tough policy. Market participants expect that another rate increase could be made in autumn.

The EUR/JPY chart shows that the rate is in an uptrend. The market recovered quickly from the sharp decline on July 27, a testament to the strength of demand. Another piece of evidence is the amount of B→C retracement after A→B rises. It was only about 30% of the momentum.

Yesterday, fresh values of the CPI index were published, which testified to a moderate slowdown in inflation in the US. The actual value was 3.2% in annual terms (expected 3.3%, a month earlier = 3.0%, a year earlier = 9.1%).

In reaction to the news, the price of gold fell from a daily high around USD 1,930 an ounce to renew the August low. Such behavior can be interpreted as a decrease in the value of the precious metal, as it loses its relevance as a protective asset against inflation.

Earlier we wrote that August began for the gold market in a bearish way. The trend continues.

Technical analysis of the XAU/USD chart on the 4-hour timeframe shows that:

→ the price develops dynamics within the descending channel, which has been operating since May of this year;
→ yesterday there was a test of resistance at the level of USD 1,930, which served as support in early August. This is a bearish sign;
→ the price of gold is approaching an important support at the psychological level of USD 1,900 per ounce;
→ a series of lower highs is formed on the chart;
→ the RSI indicator rose from the oversold zone, forming a bullish divergence pattern.

LTC/USD Analysis: Litecoin Price Declines after Halving
TsAxjeu.jpg


On Wednesday, August 2, the planned halving took place in the Litecoin network. Now the reward of miners for each mined block has decreased by 2 times from 12.5 LTC to 6.25 LTC. Theoretically, this should make the cryptocurrency more scarce.

On the eve of the halving, experts were bullish. Thus, financier David Cox voiced a forecast about a possible increase in LTC to USD 189.2. Analyst Michaël van de Poppe provided a bolder upside scenario to USD 200. Also positive statements were made by the creator of the Litecoin project Charlie Lee. However, in fact, we see that the LTC/USD rate fell after the halving.

USDJPY Analysis: Rate Reaches Max of the Year
7ACIc6L.jpg


The uptrend in 2023 is due to the difference in the monetary policy of the Bank of Japan and the US Federal Reserve. As the chart shows, USD/JPY hit 145.22 yen per US dollar today. The last time such a rate was relevant was in November 2022 after foreign exchange interventions (marked with arrows).

Since the USD/JPY rate has again reached the level of 145 yen per US dollar, which is important for the Japanese authorities, traders expect official warnings regarding interventions, but there are none yet. Reuters reports the words of Joey Chu, head of Asian currency research at HSBC: "We believe that the Treasury will start moving in the 145-148 range."

Bullish arguments:

→ The ability of the exchange rate to recover from a sharp fall in early July indicates the strength of demand in the market.
→ The chart shows that the rate has not yet reached the upper limit of the ascending channel.
→ B→C retracement after A→B advance was less than 50%.
→ Central bank monetary policy differentials are unlikely to change any time soon.

Bearish arguments:

→ Presumably, traders may take profits from long positions, fearing currency interventions, which will slow down the current bullish trend.
→ This morning there was a false breakdown of June-July highs to force sellers to close positions and lure buyers in the wrong direction.

GBP/USD Analysis: The Pound Trying to Grow on News from Labor Market
CRbSOrE.jpg


On Tuesday morning data from the UK market were published:

→ base wage rose at a record pace in the second quarter. It was 7.8% higher than a year earlier, representing the highest annual growth rate since 2001.

→ at the same time, the number of unemployed also increased. In July, 29k applications for unemployment benefits were submitted (expected - 19.2).

The first reaction of the pound is growth. It is possible that market participants have increased fears that wage growth will give the Bank of England more grounds for a sharper increase in interest rates. At the same time, the bullish momentum faded quickly, in line with the bearish momentum that has dominated the GBP/USD market since mid-July (as shown by the black line) amid the formation of the SHS pattern.

However, the situation may change.

XRP/USD Price Rolls Back to Important Support
tHz4y0r.jpg


July was marked by the end of the trial between the SEC regulator and Ripple Labs in favor of the latter, which led to a sharp increase in the XRP token to a price above USD 0.9, but then a rollback followed after the first emotional reaction.

By the way, the trial is not completed yet. As it became known, the SEC intends to appeal the court's decision.

Bearish arguments:

→ The price of the XRP token may fall after the SEC formally files an appeal.
→ The price of the XRP token has rolled back by more than 2/3 from the July rapid growth — this is too deep a size for a normal correction.
