Nikkei 225 Reaches Psychological Level at 33,000
9ddjebz.jpg


In 2023, Japan's stock market is in a bullish trend (shown by the blue channel) as the country has an ultra-loose monetary policy (unlike other G7 countries that are fighting inflation). As a result, the cheap yen helps Japanese companies, which are largely export-oriented, to develop. According to the Cabinet of Japan, GDP in the second quarter of 2023 increased by 2% compared to the same quarter of the previous year.

The growth of the Japanese stock market from the beginning of the year to today is about 28%. And on Sept. 5, the Nikkei 225 closed above the psychological 33,000 level. Yahoo Finance reports that Kenji Abe, Daiwa Securities equity strategist, predicts the Nikkei could gradually rise to 35,000 after a strong reporting season this summer.

USD/CAD Analysis: How the Bank of Canada Decision Affected the National Currency
fzkixV7.jpg


Yesterday it became known that the Bank of Canada (BOC) decided to keep the rate at 5% — the highest level in 22 years.

Here are the key takeaways from CEO Tiff Macklem's press conference:

→ excess demand is declining, but the BOC is remaining concerned about persistence of high inflation;
→ the labor market is gradually calming down, but wage growth remains high;
→ second-quarter GDP contraction attributed to a noticeable slowdown in consumption growth, a slowdown in housing market growth and the impact of wildfires across the country.

Although the decision to leave the rate unchanged is a move that economists expected in a Bloomberg survey, there has been some spike in volatility in the foreign exchange market. The first emotional reaction of market participants led to the depreciation of the CAD against other currencies. But at the end of the day, the Canadian dollar strengthened — apparently, market participants still see positive in the prospects of the Canadian economy, taking into account the statements of the head of the Bank of Canada.

At the same time, an interesting situation is emerging on the USD/CAD chart – the rate has declined from the important level of 1.365, from which reversals were repeatedly formed earlier this year (as the arrows show). What can we say about the formation of another bearish reversal?

Commodity Currencies, Pound and Euro in Search of Medium-term Bottom
iTmk4A7.jpg


Yesterday's multidirectional statistics from the US contributed to the test of significant levels by major currency pairs. Thus, the GBP/USD pair fell to 1.2500, the EUR/USD pair re-tested 1.0700, and commodity currencies managed to find temporary support.

AUD/USD

In early September, the Australian currency came under additional pressure due to negative economic data from China. The slowdown in the world's second largest economy, provoked by the deepening decline in the real estate market, could not but affect the currencies of China's trading partners. After the RBA left the base interest rate unchanged at the beginning of the week, the AUD/USD pair updated the August low of this year at 0.6360. Yesterday, buyers managed to keep the price above the recent lows, but if the situation in the commodity market does not stabilise, the downtrend may continue towards 0.6100-0.6000. Cancellation of the downward scenario may be considered after a firm consolidation above 0.6520.

From the point of view of fundamental analysis, today at 15:30 GMT+3, we are waiting for weekly data on the number of applications for unemployment benefits in the US.

Bitcoin Sets September High
yf433s6.jpg


The price of the main cryptocurrency rose above the level of 26k US dollars. This was fueled by the news that Ark Invest and 21Shares filed applications with the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) for a spot ETF on Ethereum.

Some say recent verdicts in favor of cryptocurrency firms Grayscale and Ripple Labs in lawsuits against the SEC increase the chances that ETF applications for Ethereum will be approved. We also note that applications for bitcoin ETFs from BlackRock and other funds are being reviewed by the SEC, but the deadlines for these applications, originally set for early September, have been postponed to a later date.

Meanwhile, Barrons writes that the NASDAQ exchange is preparing infrastructure for cryptocurrency trading, which is causing bullish sentiment among cryptocurrency enthusiasts. But the BTC/USD chart gives reason to doubt.

On the hourly chart of AUD/USD at FXOpen, the pair struggled to clear the 0.6520 zone. The Aussie Dollar started a fresh decline below the 0.6440 support against the US Dollar.

The pair even settled below 0.6400 and the 50-hour simple moving average. Finally, the bulls appeared near the 0.6360 zone. A low was formed near 0.6357 and the pair is now consolidating losses. It is slowly moving higher above the 50-hour simple moving average.

The next major resistance is near 0.6485, above which the price could rise toward 0.6520. Any more gains might send the pair toward 0.6550.

USD/JPY Analysis: Yen Rises Sharply after Hawkish Government Announcements
jzDztIt.jpg


Since 2016, the interest rate in Japan has been in the negative zone and has remained unchanged — for more than 7 years it has been -0.10%. This makes Japan fundamentally different from other countries. But over the weekend the Yomiuri newspaper published an interview with Bank of Japan CEO Kazuo Ueda. He said the central bank could end the era of negative interest rates once it becomes clear that the 2% inflation target has been achieved.

Economic Calendar: A Torrent of UK and Chinese Releases, US Inflation and Inventories, and ECB Meeting
BVXzPWJ.jpg


A torrent of key economic data releases is coming out this week, which will significantly impact the markets. First up is UK unemployment and average earnings on Tuesday (10:00). Unemployment is expected to tick up to 4.3%, while earnings remain steady at 8.2%, presenting a quandary for the Bank of England, as it battles to reduce inflation while not induce a recession.

Oil Price Stabilizes Near Year's Highs
5U0L3d3.jpg


Last week, the Russian Federation and Saudi Arabia confirmed plans to reduce production by the end of the year, which contributed to an increase in oil prices.

At the beginning of this week, the WTI price stabilized in the range of 85.50 - 87.50. Will the upward trend continue, which will benefit oil producers?

On Tuesday morning, the price is within the triangle formed from the median line of the ascending channel (shown in blue) and the level of 87.50. A breakout of this triangle can occur in both directions.

Bullish arguments:

→ The price is within the ascending channels, both short-term (built on the 1h and 4h charts) and long-term (built on the daily chart).
→ A series of rising lows is forming on the chart, indicating that demand is active.
→ Technically, the market may be supported by the level of 85.50, which previously served as resistance.
→ Oil supplies may be disrupted due to various storms. For example, in eastern Libya, 4 ports were closed due to flooding and a storm, which killed about 2,000 people.

TSLA Share Price Soars 10%
DGk6nTt.jpg


The reason for the growth is the increase in the target price for TSLA shares by analysts at Morgan Stanley from USD 250 to USD 400 (about +45% from current levels).

Analysts see huge potential in Tesla Dojo — this supercomputer is capable of processing millions of terabytes of video of real-life situations captured from more than 4 million Tesla vehicles. It is designed to train artificial intelligence models to ultimately help the driver drive a car (Full Self-Driving, FSD system). Analysts say Dojo could serve as the same catalyst as AWS services that helped drive Amazon stock higher.

After analysts at Morgan Stanley upgraded their rating, TSLA's price soared 10%, exceeding USD 270 per share.

This momentum could help develop the current bullish trend that describes the trend channel in the provided chart of TSLA stock, with:
→ the level of USD 260, overcome with a gap, can now provide support;
→ after overcoming this resistance, the price reached the median line of the channel. Here, supply and demand tend to balance out — this could help the bulls gain a foothold above the breakout level of USD 260.

On the hourly chart of EUR/USD at FXOpen, the pair started a recovery wave from the 1.0685 level. The Euro even cleared the 1.0715 barrier to move into a short-term bullish zone against the US Dollar.

The bulls pushed the pair above the 50-hour simple moving average and 1.0735. Finally, the pair tested the 1.0760 resistance. It is now consolidating gains below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the upward wave from the 1.0705 swing low to the 1.0764 high.

Immediate support on the downside is near the 50-hour simple moving average at 1.0735. The next major support is near a bullish trend line at 1.0715.

The trend line is close to the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the upward wave from the 1.0705 swing low to the 1.0764 high. A downside break below the 1.0715 support could send the pair toward the 1.0685 level.

Immediate resistance on the EUR/USD chart is near the 1.0760 zone. The first major resistance is near the 1.0780 level. An upside break above the 1.0780 level might send the pair toward the 1.0850 resistance.

The next major resistance is near the 1.0920 level. Any more gains might open the doors for a move toward the 1.1000 level.

GBP/USD Analysis: Price Sets a Minimum of 3 Months After GDP News
Zy4V1JO.jpg


Disappointing UK economic data was released this morning. According to the Office for National Statistics, real gross domestic product fell by 0.5% in July 2023, with declines occurring across a range of sectors. The last time a decline of this magnitude occurred was in February of this year.

As a result of the publication, the GBP/USD rate dropped sharply. At the same time, it fell below the previous low set on September 7. Bears are putting pressure on the level of 1.245. Let us note that the last time one pound was given was 1.2443 dollars in June of this year.

Bearish arguments:

→ The UK has the highest inflation among Western countries. And the Bank of England is forced to keep rates high in order to lower them, thereby creating the preconditions for a further decline in GDP.
→ In case of a successful bearish breakdown of the level of 1.245, which provided support in September, this level may become resistance. As was the case with the level of 1.255.
→ The GBP/USD rate has been in a downward trend since mid-July, as shown by the red channel. And the median line may put pressure on the pound exchange rate in the near future.

Major Currency Pairs Test Important Ranges
NK3jtY7.jpg


Yesterday, one could observe measured range trading on the market. The main currency pairs once again tested the previously formed extremes, but neither the continuation of old trends nor the formation of reversal combinations was observed. Most likely, investors and market participants are waiting for today's inflation data in the US. The core consumer price index could provide more clues about the Fed's future monetary policy.

USD/CAD

The rise in oil prices prevented the USD/CAD pair from strengthening above 1.3680. Last week, greenback buyers were determined to move above 1.3700 and test the May highs of this year. The attempt was unsuccessful, and a sharp pullback from 1.3690 allowed sellers to seize the initiative and form a bearish tweezers combination on the daily timeframe. At the moment, the signal to decline is being worked out; the nearest target for sellers will be the range of 1.3500-1.3400. If the upcoming fundamental data of the next trading sessions are positive for the US currency, another approach to 1.3700 may occur. Otherwise, the pair will face a deeper downward correction.

Today at 15:30 GMT+3, we are waiting for data on inflation in the United States, and at 17:30 GMT+3, weekly data on crude oil reserves will be published. A little later, the main Thomson Reuters/Ipsos Canadian Consumer Sentiment Index (PCSI) for September will be released.

EUR/AUD Approaches Important Support Zone
ZZIhyTS.jpg


Euro currency traders are focused on the ECB meeting, the decision of which will be published today at 15:15 GMT+3. There will be a press conference at 3:45 p.m.

According to Reuters, the probability of a rate hike is about 60%. The figure stood at 50% at the start of the week as the ECB's updated forecasts expect inflation to remain above 3% next year, well above its 2% target.

At the same time, Australian dollar traders experienced a spike in volatility this morning following the release of strong labor market data in Australia. Last month, the number of employed people increased by almost 65,000 people — the second highest figure in 2023.

Dollar Trying to Resume Upward Movement After Rise in Core CPI
as1zh8F.jpg


Yesterday's inflation data in the US turned out to be higher than analysts expected. Thus, in general, the level of consumer prices increased by 3.7% year on year, while on a monthly basis, prices increased by 0.6%. Such data indicate that the Fed's hawkish policy has not yet produced the expected results in the fight against inflation, and, most likely, the rate will be raised again at the September meeting. However, the major currency pairs reacted rather subduedly to yesterday's fundamentals. The euro/US dollar, the pound/US dollar and the US dollar/yen managed to remain in the previously formed flat corridors.

EUR/USD
32kV8hk.png


Buyers of the single European currency once again defended support at 1.0700. The development of an upward correction has not yet been observed, as investors are waiting for today's statement from the ECB. At 15:15 GMT+3, the decision on the base interest rate will be announced, and a press conference with Christine Lagarde will take place a little later. If the head of the ECB announces a possible pause in the rate hike, the pair could instantly find itself at 1.0600-1.0500. Conversely, the hawkish tone of officials could contribute to a rise to 1.1000.

Market Reaction to the ECB's Decision to Raise Rates to 4.5%
mWFM23H.jpg


According to the ECB report, published yesterday:

→ Inflation in Europe continues to decline, but will remain too high for too long.
→ Average inflation is forecast at 5.6% in 2023, 3.2% in 2024 and 2.1% in 2025. This is an upward revision for 2023 and 2024, which mainly reflects rising energy prices.
→ The eurozone economy is forecast to grow by 0.7% in 2023, 1.0% in 2024 and 1.5% in 2025.

In order to combat inflation, the ECB decided to raise the key interest rate by 25 basis points to 4.5%, which was a surprise, since it was expected to remain at 4.25%. At the same time, the deposit rate reached a historical maximum.

Importantly, the ECB noted that "interest rates have reached levels that, maintained for a sufficiently long duration, will make a substantial contribution to the timely return of inflation to the target” — this was perceived by market participants as a signal that the growth cycle (10 rate increases in a row) is completed.

Yuan Retreats from Multi-year Highs on Strong Economic Data
ySEkc2N.jpg


The US dollar index hit its highest level since early March this week, but the yuan is one of the few currencies to rise against the USD over the period.

This was facilitated, among other things, by strong economic data published today:
→ Industrial production growth in August amounted to +4.5% in annual terms (expected +3.9). This is the strongest progress in 1 month since autumn 2022.
→ Retail sales in August increased by 4.6% year on year (expected +3.0%).

The chart shows that after a multi-year high (B) of about USD 7.36 per yuan set on September 8, the rate has retreated sharply. That is, sales of dollars (B→C) for yuan increased. And the sharp increase in A→B is completely leveled out. This is a bearish sign, indicating that the bulls have completely retreated.

Investors are assessing the August report on consumer prices in the US, which was published the day before and caused a muted market reaction. Thus, the index increased by 0.6% over the month after 0.2% in the previous period, which resulted in an increase in the annual indicator to 3.7% from 3.2% previously. The benchmark index, which US Federal Reserve officials rely on when setting monetary policy, adjusted to 4.3% from 4.7% previously, the lowest reading since October 2021, when it first reached 4.0%. Against this background, experts’ confidence in maintaining the interest rate at 5.25–5.50% at the US Federal Reserve meeting on September 19-20 even increased and, according to the FedWatch Tool indicator from the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME), now amounts to more than 97.0 %.

EUR/USD

The European currency fell against the US dollar on Thursday as the euro came under pressure after the European Central Bank signaled an end to its rate hike cycle. The ECB raised interest rates at its 10th straight meeting on Thursday to combat persistent inflation but signaled it was likely to ease policy. The central bank of the 20 countries that use the euro raised its deposit rate to 4% from 3.75%, bringing it to a record high level. Markets and economists expect policy tightening to be the ECB's final move and now expect a long pause followed by rate cuts in the second half of next year. The euro fell 0.89% to 1.0635 after falling to 1.0629, its weakest since March 17 and on pace for its biggest one-day percentage drop since July 27. Immediate resistance can be seen at 1.0711, a breakout to the upside could trigger a rally to 1.0740. On the downside, immediate support is seen at 1.0630, a break below could take the pair towards 1.0594.

Over the past week, a price range has formed with boundaries of $1.0685 and $1.0748. Now the price has moved to the upper half of the range and may continue to rise.

GBP/USD Technical Analysis
6AwTIl5.jpg


On the hourly chart of GBP/USD at FXOpen, the pair attempted a fresh increase above 1.2500. However, the British Pound failed above 1.2540 and started a fresh decline against the US Dollar.

There was a clear move below the 1.2465 support and the 50-hour simple moving average. The pair even tested the 1.2380 support zone. A low was formed near 1.2378 and the pair is now consolidating losses.

On the upside, the GBP/USD chart indicates that the pair is facing resistance near the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the 1.2548 swing high to the 1.2378 low at 1.2420 and the 50-hour simple moving average.

The next major resistance is near a bearish trend line at 1.2465. It is close to the 50% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the 1.2548 swing high to the 1.2378 low.

A close above the 1.2465 resistance zone could open the doors for a move toward 1.2510. Any more gains might send GBP/USD toward 1.2545. On the downside, there is a key support forming near 1.2380. If there is a downside break below the 1.2380 support, the pair could accelerate lower.

The next major support is near the 1.2320 zone, below which the pair could test 1.2250. Any more losses could lead the pair toward the 1.2200 support.

USD/CAD Analysis: Canadian Dollar Strengthens Ahead of Inflation News
FGyCPoP.jpg


On September 7, we wrote that the level of 1.365 could serve as resistance, from which the price will form a bearish reversal.

As the USD/CAD chart shows, the rate dropped from this resistance to the psychological level of 1.3500, which served as support.

Wherein:

→ The bullish trend (shown by the blue channel) is broken. Facing resistance at 1.365, the bulls failed to reach the upper boundary of the channel, which was a sign of weakening uptrend. One could also observe bearish divergences on a number of indicators.

→ The price at the beginning of the week is in a downward trend, which is shown by the red channel.

Euro vs Turkish Lira: A Tale of Turbulence and Opportunity
nruBcOh.jpg


As the summer holiday season drew to a close approximately two weeks ago, tourists from across the globe bid farewell to Turkey, a nation known for its captivating landscapes, rich history, and hospitality.

For decades, Turkey has been a favoured destination for travellers from Europe, the Caucasus, the Middle East, and Eurasia. Its vibrant tourist industry, catering to package tours and all-inclusive hotels, has consistently offered families and working individuals a few weeks of relaxation at an affordable price. However, beneath this veneer of holiday bliss, Turkey's economy has grappled with a persistent challenge – the devaluation of the Turkish Lira.

The Lira's Downward Spiral

Over the past six years, the Turkish Lira has been on a rocky path, depreciating significantly against major global currencies.

Us Dollar Weakens ahead of the Fed Meeting
rwNKheJ.png


EUR/USD

The euro rose against the US dollar on Friday, boosted by hopes that the ECB is ending its cycle of rate hikes and data suggesting China's faltering economy may be regaining some momentum. The ECB raised its key interest rate to a record 4% on Thursday and warned it would remain at that level until inflation above target is resolved. Data on Friday showed Chinese retail sales and industrial production figures for August beat economists' expectations, even as the housing market slump deepened. The euro rose 0.2% to $1.0675, off a low of $1.0632, its weakest since March 20. Immediate resistance can be seen at $1.0710, a break higher could trigger a rise towards $1.0760. On the upside, immediate support is seen at 1.0637, a break below could take the pair towards 1.0592.

Based on last week's lows, a new downward channel has formed. Now, the price is in the middle of the channel and may continue to rise.

S&P 500 under Pressure ahead of Federal Reserve Meeting
j0O29Ih.jpg


The decision on the base interest rate will be published tomorrow at 21:00 GMT+3, and Powell will hold a press conference at 21:30. Although most experts, as reported by the media, expect that the current rate will remain, market participants will closely monitor the Federal Reserve's assessment of the current situation, which includes new data on inflation and the labour market. It is possible that there will be another rate increase before the end of the year.

Meanwhile, the S&P 500 chart shows the market under pressure in mid-September, although the overall picture appears balanced.

The balance of supply and demand is indicated by the fact that the movement B→C is approximately 50% of the movement A→B. And the C→D movement is approximately 50% of the B→C movement. That is, fluctuations die out as buyers and sellers converge.

The price is still within the ascending channel (shown in blue), but it is possible that during tomorrow's news announcement from the Federal Reserve there will be an attempt by the bears to break through it.

Cryptocurrency Prices Rise on SEC Rumours
2skMxFl.jpg


Various media outlets report the opinion that SEC Chairman Gary Gensler expressed in a personal conversation. He allegedly intends to approve applications for the creation of ETFs related to the cryptocurrency spot markets. Such applications were submitted by BlackRock, Invesco, WisdomTree, Valkyrie and other respectable funds. But for now, the SEC's decision on the applications has been delayed.

At the same time, it is reported that by giving the go-ahead to applications, Gary Gensler can thereby gain loyalty from the funds, and after the end of his period as head of the SEC, go to work for one of them.

Against the backdrop of the information mentioned, the crypto markets perked up — the prices of bitcoin, Ether and other assets rose by approximately 3% in a few hours. However, it is unlikely that such rumors can become a driver for creating a sustainable trend.

Yen and European Currencies Retreat from Previously Reached Lows
X2aYL6F.jpg


Last week, European currencies renewed their recent lows, while the yen and commodity currencies managed to remain in their old ranges. However, this week, everything can change dramatically since the fundamental data of the coming trading sessions is as saturated as possible. Data on the consumer price index in the Eurozone will be released today, and tomorrow, a similar index will be published in the UK. Also, central banks in the US and UK will announce their interest rate decisions on Wednesday and Thursday.

USD/JPY

The dollar/yen currency pair is stuck between 146 and 148. After a sharp rise in early September, the price switched to sideways movement and, apparently, is accumulating strength for growth. If greenback buyers manage to gain a foothold above 147.80, the start of a new upward impulse towards last year's highs at 150.00-151.00 may occur. However, if we see a sharp pullback from the current levels or there is a false breakout at 148.00-150.00, a full-scale downward correction may happen.

The pair's pricing will depend almost entirely on tomorrow's Fed verdict (21:00 GMT+3). If a pause in the hawkish policy of the American regulator is announced, USD/JPY could instantly be at 144.00-145.00. If officials declare the need to further increase the rate, a test at 150 may occur.

S&P 500 Falls amid News from the Fed
lx1FCrb.jpg


Yesterday was an important evening that had an impact on many financial markets. The Federal Reserve (as expected) kept the rate at the same level. According to Powell:

→ The full effect of tightening the monetary policy has yet to be felt.
→ [They] will continue to act cautiously, basing further decisions on incoming statistical data.
→ Inflation is much higher than the target.

Will the Fed tighten monetary policy further? Opinions are divided. JP Morgan analysts believe that the rate hike cycle is over. On the contrary, Vanguard analysts believe that rates will have to be raised again (and even more than once).

Perhaps the Fed's repeated rhetoric no longer looks like a sign of confidence? One way or another, the US stock market fell sharply, making the recession scenario more pressing.

On September 19, we wrote that the market was under bearish pressure ahead of the FOMC meeting. The graph shows that they managed to realize their advantage.
