S&P 500 Analysis: Threat of an Important Support Breakdown is Growing
JBEXIcd.jpg


On September 19, we analysed the S&P 500 index, indicating that the market is under pressure. This was an important long term analysis, and let's see what has changed in a month with the news that happened yesterday.

A month ago we marked turning points A, B, C, D on the chart.

Since then, new turning points have appeared: E, F, G, H.

As we indicated, in the pulse sequence A→B, B→C, C→D, D→E, each subsequent pulse was 50% shorter than the previous one. The same observation is true for the E→F movement, which is the last in a series of contracting impulses. That is, the market either compressed into a spring or formed an important balance of supply and demand.

However, the F→G impulse violated this trend. This means that the market has left the state of balance in a bearish direction. At the same time, the channel expanded by 2 times (according to the principle of a parallel channel), and the market found new support G at its lower border. Further, it is important that the movement G→H amounted to 50% of the decline, which corresponds to a bullish corrective movement within the framework of the dominant downward trend (as you understand, the trend began when the market came out of balance).

GBP/JPY Analysis: a Deceptive Calm
eB7L1Yk.jpg


From early January to today, the GBP/JPY rate has risen by approximately 17%, driven by the Bank of Japan's ultra-loose policy of keeping rates below zero.

But since August, the upward trend began to weaken — perhaps faith in the pound was undermined by high inflation (the highest among the G7). This week:
→ data published on Wednesday showed that inflation in the UK has stabilized at 6.7%. In an interview with the Belfast Telegraph published on Friday, Andrew Bailey appeared calm when he said the Bank of England did not expect big changes in the data anyway;
→ retail sales data for September in the UK published on Friday turned out to be worse than expected: actual = -0.9%, expected = -0.3%, a month ago = +0.4%

Dollar Falls Amid Powell's Dovish Comments
xcHdI2p.jpg


Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell's comments at the economic forum were seen as generally dovish. The strength of the US economy and ongoing tight labour markets could justify further rate hikes, Powell said. But he also noted that the recent market rise in bond yields has helped tighten overall financial conditions significantly.

The official's speech turned out to be quite cautious, and, in general, signalled more in favour of maintaining monetary policy without changes. However, answering questions, the chairman did not rule out the possibility of an additional increase in the interest rate, emphasising that the current value is not the maximum.

In addition, the day before the market paid attention to a block of macroeconomic statistics from the United States. Thus, the number of initial applications for unemployment benefits for the week of October 13 decreased from 211.0k to 198.0k, while analysts expected 212.0k, and the number of repeated applications for the week of October 6 rose from 1.705 million to 1.734 million, which turned out to be significantly higher than forecasts of 1.710 million.
Investors were also somewhat disappointed by sales in the secondary housing market: in September the figure decreased by 2.0% after -0.7% in the previous month, and in absolute terms the dynamics slowed down from 4.04 million to 3.96 million, while experts expected 3.89 million. The dollar index was last down 0.27% on the day at 106.24.

EUR/USD
eUsTOsM.png


The EUR/USD pair is declining slightly, consolidating near the 1.0575 mark. The day before, the pair showed active growth, having managed to update local highs from October 12, which was associated with the speech of the head of the US Federal Reserve, Jerome Powell. The euro added 0.42% to $1.0581. The immediate resistance can be seen at 1.0591, a breakout to the upside could trigger a rise towards 1.0601. On the downside, immediate support is seen at 1.0525, a break below could take the pair towards 1.0442.

The focus of investors today will be on September statistics on the dynamics of manufacturing inflation in Germany: in monthly terms the index is expected to slightly accelerate from 0.3% to 0.4%, and in annual terms — a decrease of 14.2% after -12.6% in the previous month.

GBP/USD Attempts Recovery, USD/CAD Grinds Higher
zoeGlB4.jpg


GBP/USD is attempting a recovery wave from 1.2090. USD/CAD is rising and might aim for a move above the 1.3720 resistance zone.

Important Takeaways for GBP/USD and USD/CAD Analysis Today

  • The British Pound is struggling to gain pace for a move above the 1.2200 region.
  • There is a key bearish trend line forming with resistance near 1.2170 on the hourly chart of GBP/USD at FXOpen.
  • USD/CAD is showing positive signs above the 1.3670 support zone.
  • There is a bullish flag pattern forming with resistance near 1.3720 on the hourly chart at FXOpen.

GBP/USD Technical Analysis
GbEkfT9.jpg


On the hourly chart of GBP/USD at FXOpen, the pair started a fresh decline from the 1.2200 zone. The British Pound traded below the 1.2140 support to move into further a bearish zone against the US Dollar, as mentioned in the previous analysis.

The pair even traded below 1.2115 and the 50-hour simple moving average. Finally, the bulls appeared near the 1.2090 level. A low was formed near 1.2093 and the pair is now attempting a short-term recovery wave.

There was a fresh upside above the 50-hour simple moving average. The pair climbed above the 50% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the 1.2191 swing high to the 1.2093 low.

Immediate resistance on the upside is near a key bearish trend line at 1.2170. It is close to the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the 1.2191 swing high to the 1.2093 low. The first major resistance on the GBP/USD chart is near the 1.2190 level.

A close above the 1.2190 resistance might spark a decent recovery wave. The next major resistance is near the 1.2220 level. Any more gains could lead the pair toward the 1.2300 resistance in the near term.

Initial support sits near 1.2140. The next major support sits at 1.2115, below which there is a risk of another sharp decline. In the stated case, the pair could drop toward 1.2020.

Bitcoin Breaks Psychological Level of $30k
HP1QC4o.jpg


On Friday-Sunday, the price of BTC/USD several times exceeded the round level of 30,000, but the excess was short-lived; soon, the price rolled back down. But the pressure of the bulls did not weaken, and since the beginning of Monday, the price of bitcoin rose above 37,000.

A combination of bullish factors contributed to the rise in bitcoin prices:
→ the threat of a financial crisis in the USA. Congress without a speaker, the budget has not been approved, the S&P-500 is near its 5-month low. Legendary investor Peter Schiff expresses the opinion that a crisis is inevitable due to the actions of the Fed.
→ Expectations that the SEC will approve a bitcoin ETF in the near future, and this will open bitcoin to institutional investors. According to JPMorgan, this will happen within a few months. Positive signals will come from BlackRock and VanEck, which have filed bids.
→ Refusal by the SEC to claim against Ripple Labs.
→ Geopolitical tensions in the Middle East. Bitcoin is gaining relevance as an asset that can become a safe haven for capital.

Cryptocurrency Market Capitalization Sets Year's High
p60KhXr.jpg


Amid the frenzy over expectations that the SEC will approve applications for spot bitcoin ETFs, the cryptocurrency market capitalization reached USD 1.25 trillion this morning, for the first time in 2023. Expectations have increased following reports that the US Securities and Exchange Commission will not appeal a court ruling that the rejection of Grayscale Investments' ETF application was improper.

It is important to understand that an ETF is a financial instrument that will allow a wide range of people to easily officially invest in bitcoin without opening an account on a crypto exchange, which can be associated with difficulties and dangers.

Eurostoxx 50 at Important Support. Production in Europe is Declining
tM2ZUgx.jpg


As data released this morning showed:
→ Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI) in France: actual = 42.6, expected = 44.4, a month ago = 43.6. Thus, the index dropped to its lowest level since the panic associated with the spread of coronavirus.
→ PMI in Germany: actual = 40.7, expected = 40.1, a month ago = 39.8.

Since the values of the PMI index (considered a leading indicator of the state of the economy, calculated by S&P Global) are significantly below 50, this indicates a contraction of the economy in the 2 most important countries of Europe in the context of high interest rates.

It is not surprising that the European stock index Eurostoxx 50 shows bearish dynamics: the price is below the SMA (100), which is directed downwards. The publication of PMI values added negativity. Will the bearish trend continue?

FTSE 100 Opens Lower as Barclays' Mixed Results Weigh on Banking Sector
I41YtY6.jpg


London's FTSE 100 index commenced the trading day on a weaker note, driven by a downturn in the banking sector following Barclays' release of mixed financial results.

At 8:15 AM, the FTSE 100 dipped by 3.78 points to 7,371.05, while its counterpart, the FTSE 250, displayed resilience with a gain of 28.03 points, equivalent to a 0.2% increase, closing the session at 17,087.02. The days of the FTSE 100 surpassing the 8,000-point threshold, which had until a few months ago never been reached, seem to be receding into the past.

Barclays, a high street lender, posted third-quarter profits that surpassed expectations. However, the bank simultaneously announced a downward revision of its UK net interest margin guidance and signalled an anticipated charge in the fourth quarter related to restructuring efforts.

Analysts have characterised this earnings period as less robust, primarily due to an impairment charge that exceeded forecasts. The downgrade in net interest margin guidance, attributed to shifts in deposit pricing and composition, raises concerns about potential negative ramifications in other sectors.

Despite these challenges, the persistently high interest rates continue to provide a favourable tailwind, effectively offsetting the adverse impact of a subdued mortgage market and changes in deposit levels.

The pair started a fresh decline below the 50-hour simple moving average and 1.0625. The bears were able to push the pair toward the 1.0585 pivot level. The pair traded as low as 1.0583 and is currently showing a lot of bearish signs.

Immediate resistance on the upside is near the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the 1.0687 swing high to the 1.0583 low.

The first major resistance is near the 50-hour simple moving average at 1.0625. An upside break above the 1.0625 level might send the pair toward the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the 1.0687 swing high to the 1.0583 low at 1.0660.

Any more gains might open the doors for a move toward the 1.0685 level. On the downside, immediate support on the EUR/USD chart is seen near a key bullish trend line at 1.0585. The next major support is near the 1.0530 level. A downside break below the 1.0530 support could send the pair toward the 1.0500 level.

AUD/USD Analysis: The Rate Reacts Sharply to News About Inflation
rNUdnDT.jpg


Today in Australia, data from the CPI indicator was published, which came as an unpleasant surprise, indicating that inflation in Australia does not want to decline:
Core Price Index was: actual = 5.6%, expected = 5.3%, a month earlier = 5.2%, two months earlier = 4.9%.

Perhaps the reason that inflation is raising its head again is high prices on the world oil market.

One way or another, the AUD/USD chart shows a surge in volatility and a sharp downward reversal from the level of 0.63900. The multidirectionality of impulses may indicate that the news was indeed unexpected.

According to Reuters, two of Australia's four largest banks — the Commonwealth Bank of Australia and ANZ — now expect a quarter-point rate hike in November. “While the current level of 4.35% could mark the peak of the cash rate, there is a risk that policy could tighten further. Any easing is still a long way off,” bank analysts say.

Federal Reserve Signals Prolonged Restrictive Monetary Policy, Impacting Markets
PRBisSl.jpg


Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell's recent announcement underscores the central bank's unwavering commitment to an extended period of restrictive monetary policy, sparking fluctuations in the stock market, surges in the US 10-year Treasury yield, and an appreciation of the US dollar against the Japanese yen.

This resolute stance is designed to persist until there is a high degree of confidence that inflation has sustainably dropped to the targeted 2% over an extended period.

Despite recent US inflation rates aligning with the Federal Reserve's 2% target, Chairman Powell refrained from suggesting that the mission to rein in inflation has been successfully accomplished.

He notably indicated that significant inflation metrics are anticipated to recede in the near future. Powell's stricter warning surpasses investor expectations and runs counter to the backdrop of recent increases in long-term US interest rates and tighter financial conditions, which have evolved since the last Federal Reserve rate hike.

The Federal Reserve's hawkish stance is deeply rooted in its keen focus on future economic forecasts and the associated risks.

This position demonstrates the Federal Reserve's heightened willingness to accept the possibility of a recession rather than a resurgence of inflation. Moreover, the Federal Reserve relies on economic models, including the Phillips curve, which posits an inverse relationship between inflation and unemployment.

The Japanese yen has experienced considerable volatility over the past week, oscillating between gains and losses against the US dollar on multiple occasions.

Google Report Crashes Stock Price
alphabet.jpg


Shares of GOOG and GOOGL fell about 9.5% on Wednesday, wiping Google's parent company's market value by USD 166.64 billion, the fifth-largest decline in capitalization history, according to Dow Jones Market Data.

It is noteworthy that the drop occurred as a result of the publication of a report that turned out to be better than expected:
→ earnings per share: actual = USD 1.55, forecast = USD 1.45;
→ gross income: actual = USD 76.69 billion; forecast = USD 75.95.

Why did Google's stock price collapse? Among the reasons may be the fact that revenue from cloud-based services has shown a decline. It amounted to USD 8.41 billion, which is about 2% below expectations of USD 8.6 billion, although in the same quarter last year it was equal to USD 6.87 billion, that is, an increase of 22% over the year.

However, Dan Ives of Wedbush Securities said the stock's negative reaction was "overblown." And according to analysts at Mizuho Americas, the decline in cloud revenue will be "temporary," based on what they've seen in rival Amazon's cloud business.

If the price decline continues, how deep can it be?

Despite Strong Report, META Shares Fall 3%
1qDhvYk.jpg


Like Google, META demonstrated that the price can fall if the quarterly report is better than expected:
→ Earnings per share: actual = USD 4.39, expectation = USD 3.63.
→ Revenue: actual = USD 34.15 billion, expectations = USD 33.56 billion
→ Number of daily active users: fact = 2.09 billion, expectation = 2.07 billion according to StreetAccount.

META's share price initially rose in post-market trading but then reversed course and fell more than 3% following cautionary comments from CFO Susan Lee about the impact of military conflict in the Middle East on the advertising market.

The NASDAQ Index Officially Enters Correction
Ppr1vds.jpg


The decline to current levels from the peak of the top of the year, set on July 19, exceeded 10%, which is generally considered to be the trigger for the start of the correction. According to statistics, this is the 70th official correction since the index was created in February 1971.

Despite the positive report from Microsoft, the bearish dynamics of the NASDAQ index were determined by the decline in shares of Tesla and Google, as well as the rise in the yield of long-term treasury bonds, which increased the cost of borrowing.

The US Dollar Resumes Growth
JIdKY96.jpg


Towards the end of the week, the American currency managed to resume medium-term growth. Reversal combinations among commodity currencies were broken, and the pound, yen and euro went to test new lows. The sharp strengthening of the US dollar is most likely caused by the worsening geopolitical situation in the Middle East, rising oil prices and good fundamental data from overseas published this week. Thus, the business activity index (PMI) in the US services sector for October, published on Tuesday, showed growth: 50.9 versus 49.8. New home sales also increased in September: 759K versus 680K.

USD/JPY

The data published above contributed to the exit of the USD/JPY pair from the phase of long-term consolidation at 149.80-148.70. On the weekly USD/JPY chart, greenback buyers easily broke through the upper limit and are currently firmly entrenched above 150.00. If the corresponding foundation is released, the pair may rise to last year’s highs at 151.90. A corrective rollback is possible to 149.50-149.20.

Today at 15:30 GMT+3, we are waiting for the publication of data on basic orders for durable goods in the United States for September. Also at this time, the GDP figure for the third quarter will be released, and weekly data on the number of applications for unemployment benefits will be published.

USD/JPY Analysis: New High of the Year
nwZQqiw.jpg


Yesterday, for the first time in 2023, the yen weakened to 150.7 per US dollar.

Thus, since the beginning of autumn, the yen has weakened by 3.5%, continuing the trend of 2023, which is due to the difference in the monetary policies of the two countries.

The Fed is pursuing a high rate policy. Yesterday's news testified to the stability of the economy, as US GDP is growing: fact = 4.9% in annual terms; expected = 4.5%; quarter ago = 2.4%. This provides a cushion for the Fed to continue keeping rates high to combat inflation.

At the same time, the Bank of Japan continues its ultra-loose policy, keeping the rate below zero. Today's news showed that Japan's CPI was: actual = 2.7%, expected = 2.5%, a month ago = 2.5%. That is, inflation in Tokyo is raising its head, which increases pressure on the Bank of Japan.

The Bank of Japan meeting will be held next week; on Tuesday, market participants may receive important news about the authorities' response to the weak yen and rising inflation. The chart shows that traders are afraid that the USD/JPY rate could drop sharply because progress in the development of the current trend is slowing down.

Price of Gold Stabilises Near Its 5-month Highs
tXH0kgO.jpg


The XAU/USD rate fluctuates around $1,987 – the July high was formed around this price. And having overcome it, the market stabilized, as evidenced by the ADX indicator, which dropped to its minimum for the month.

Gold is up about 9% in three weeks on war fears. Moreover, if we take the year 2023, then gold has become a more profitable investment than the stock market, since according to Dow Jones Market Data, as of Thursday's close, the S&P 500 SPX index has gained 7.8% since January 1, at that time as front-month gold futures gained 9.2% over the same period.

On Friday, gold traders are focused on the release of US Core PCE Price Index values at 15:30 GMT+3. News about inflation could cause significant turbulence in the gold market.

The Dollar Rises Amid Accelerating Economic Growth in the United States

The American currency received support from strong data from the United States. Thus, in the third quarter, gross domestic product increased by 4.9% after increasing by 2.1% earlier, with a forecast of 4.2%, which was the largest increase since the fourth quarter of 2021, reflecting easing risks of a recession. At the same time, the positive dynamics of the indicator partially offsets the results of the hawkish policy of the US Federal Reserve: the regulator’s meeting will take place next week, which is also the reason for the current correction.

Optimism from faster growth rates of the American economy was partially offset by statistics on the labour market: the number of initial applications for unemployment benefits for the week of October 20 increased from 200.0k to 210.0k, while experts expected 208.0k, and the number repeated requests for the week of October 13 — from 1.727 million to 1.790 million, with expectations at 1.740 million.

EUR/USD

According to the EUR/USD technical analysis, the pair is consolidating near 1.0565, preparing to end the week with a slight decline. The day before, quotes managed to interrupt the active development of the bearish trend, while the news background remained ambiguous and investors assessed the results of the ECB meeting. As expected, the regulator left the interest rate unchanged at 4.50%, noting that further monetary policy will be determined by statistical data, which does not exclude a possible increase in the value in the future. At the same time, the ECB said that inflation in the region continues to decline, but will most likely remain above target levels for a long time.

The immediate resistance can be seen at 1.0581, a breakout to the upside could trigger a rise towards 1.0606. On the downside, immediate support is seen at 1.0517, a break below could take the pair towards 1.0500.

Price of Oil in Tense Anticipation
gp3DZQe.jpg


Monday's opening came without any surprises. Despite the news that the Israeli army is moving to a new phase of the operation in Gaza, the price of Brent oil did not change much, trading started around the middle of the Friday candle.

The chart shows that the price of Brent oil has fluctuated between USD 86.60 and USD 89.10 since October 24th. At the same time, the MACD indicator shrank near the zero line, which is typical for flat markets. However, it can hardly be said that bidders are calm.

On the one hand, they are closely monitoring news from the Middle East, where escalation could provoke supply disruptions and sharply increase the price of oil. On Sunday, US national security adviser Jake Sullivan said the US sees an increased risk of the conflict spreading to other parts of the Middle East region.

On the other hand, the Federal Reserve is expected to make a decision on interest rates this week. The event is scheduled for Wednesday evening, and it can greatly change the current balance of supply and demand.

zCzTS2m.jpg


GBP/USD started a fresh decline from the 1.2285 resistance zone. EUR/GBP is rising and might climb above the 0.8720 resistance.

Important Takeaways for GBP/USD and EUR/GBP Analysis Today

  • The British Pound is showing bearish signs below the 1.2200 support.
  • There is a key contracting triangle forming with resistance near 1.2155 on the hourly chart of GBP/USD at FXOpen.
  • EUR/GBP is gaining pace and trading above the 0.8700 zone.

GBP/USD Technical Analysis
abvNLte.jpg


On the hourly chart of GBP/USD at FXOpen, the pair attempted a fresh increase above 1.2200, as discussed in the previous analysis. However, the British Pound failed above 1.2285 and started a fresh decline against the US Dollar.

There was a clear move below 1.2200 and the 50-hour simple moving average. The bears pushed the pair 1.2155. Finally, there was a spike below the 1.2110 support zone. A low was formed near 1.2069 and the pair is now consolidating losses.

There was a minor move above the 50-hour simple moving average and the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the 1.2284 swing high to the 1.2069 low.

On the upside, the GBP/USD chart indicates that the pair is facing resistance near a key contracting triangle at 1.2155. The next major resistance is near the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the 1.2284 swing high to the 1.2069 low at 1.2200.

A close above the 1.2200 resistance zone could open the doors for a move toward 1.2285. Any more gains might send GBP/USD toward 1.2350.

On the downside, there is a key support forming near 1.2110. If there is a downside break below the 1.2110 support, the pair could accelerate lower. The next major support is near the 1.2075 zone, below which the pair could test 1.2020. Any more losses could lead the pair toward the 1.2000 support.

Middle East Tensions and Fed Meeting Influence Oil Prices. Is $250 Per Barrel Likely?
ZOCzwy2.jpg


Amidst rising tensions in the Middle East, oil markets have experienced volatility. Israel's deployment of ground forces into the Gaza Strip has not led to the expected surge in oil prices, as investors remain focused on the upcoming US Federal Reserve monetary policy meeting.

Global benchmark Brent crude oil price saw a decline of 1.06%, falling to $89.52 per barrel. Simultaneously, US West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude oil price dropped by 1.16%, reaching $84.55 per barrel.

Economic Calendar: BoE and Fed Meetings, Apple Earnings, and US Labour Data
L2Fiq9F.jpg


On Wednesday (21:00 GMT+3), the Federal Reserve will announce its interest rate decision. Analysts' opinions are divided. Some believe that the surge in bond yields signals that the Fed will likely keep the rate at 5.5%. Others say strong GDP and PCE data released on Friday strengthened the case for the Fed to keep rates higher for an extended period. Therefore, one more rate hike may occur before this tightening cycle is over. The hawkish tone of the central bank may contribute to the growth of the US dollar and decline in the S&P 500 index, which has fallen over 10% since late July when it reached a one-year-high.

USD/JPY Analysis: Playing with Fire Continues
cHGnnFO.jpg


Yesterday, the Nikkei newspaper reported that the Bank of Japan is considering adjusting its yield curve control (YCC) policy.

This provoked a strengthening of the yen (1). The USD/JPY rate dropped to a two-week extreme of 148.8 per US dollar in anticipation of news from the Bank of Japan.

The news followed this morning (2). The Bank of Japan kept interest rates at -0.1% and also said the 1% ceiling on the benchmark 10-year yield would be an upper bound rather than a hard limit.

As a result of the Bank's decision, the USD/JPY rate returned to the area above 150 yen per US dollar.

FTSE 100 Sees Modest Gains Despite BP's Earnings Dip and GBP Slump
ipTlOCQ.jpg


In the early hours of trading, the FTSE 100 exhibited slight gains, although BP PLC's underwhelming performance during this earnings season limited further progress.

At 8:15 am, London's primary index rose by 7.44 points, marking a 0.1% increase and reaching 7,334.83, while the FTSE 250 experienced a more substantial increase of 64.64 points, equating to a 0.4% uptick and culminating at 17,082.23.

BP encountered a 4.1% decline after failing to meet City expectations for third-quarter profits. Weak results in gas marketing overshadowed the company's robust performance in oil trading. Adjusted net income for the third quarter was reported at $3.29 billion, down from $8.15 billion in the previous year but surpassing the $2.59 billion recorded in the prior period.

Richard Hunter, the head of markets at Interactive Investor, noted that there might be some room for disappointment, particularly in light of the market's anticipation of a $4.01 billion figure.

Vodafone Group PLC saw a 0.5% increase after confirming the sale of its Spanish business for a sum of up to €5 billion. Spectris PLC experienced a more notable rise of 2.8% following its forecast of top-end operating profits.

Rolls-Royce emerged as another strong performer, enjoying a 3.2% increase in its stock value. This surge was propelled by Barclays' decision to upgrade its rating from neutral to overweight while setting a price target of 270p.

EUR/USD Technical Analysis
oDMR0c8.jpg


On the hourly chart of EUR/USD at FXOpen, the pair remained in a bearish zone below the 1.0700 level, as mentioned in the previous analysis. The Euro declined below the 1.0615 support zone against the US Dollar.

The pair even settled below the 1.0595 zone and the 50-hour simple moving average. More importantly, there was a break below a key bullish trend line with support at 1.0570. A low is formed near 1.0557 and the pair is now consolidating losses.

On the upside, the pair is now facing resistance near the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the 1.0675 swing high to the 1.0557 low at 1.0585.

The next key resistance is near the 50-hour simple moving average at 1.0595. The first key resistance is the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the 1.0675 swing high to the 1.0557 low at 1.0615.

A clear move above the 1.0615 level could send the pair toward the 1.0675 resistance. An upside break above 1.0675 could set the pace for another increase. In the stated case, the pair might rise toward 1.0750.

If not, the pair might resume its decline. The first major support on the EUR/USD chart is near 1.0560. The next key support is at 1.0525. If there is a downside break below 1.0525, the pair could drop toward 1.0500. The next support is near 1.0485, below which the pair could start a major decline.

USD/CAD Analysis: New High of the Year
QdAmIQk.jpg


As the chart shows, yesterday, the USD/CAD rate exceeded 1.389 for the first time in 2023. This happened against the backdrop of news regarding the economies of the USA and Canada:

→ Statistics Canada estimates that GDP contracted in the third quarter. Technically, it can be stated that the Canadian economy has entered a technical recession, as this is the second consecutive negative change in GDP for the quarter.
→ The US Employment Cost Index rose 1.1% in the third quarter after rising 1.0% in the second quarter, the Labour Department reported Tuesday. This is a sign of a strong labour market, but at the same time, it indicates the preconditions for rising inflation, since the costs to the employer may fall on the consumer.

How the Fed assesses inflation will become known today at 21:30 GMT+3 from Powell’s speech. Also, volatility in the USD/CAD market may increase the speech of Bank of Canada Governor Tiff Macklem at 23:15 GMT+3.

Bank of England's November Interest Rate Decision and Its Potential Impact on the Pound
nDQ8FtW.jpg


The British pound faces a crucial test as the Bank of England (BoE) prepares to announce its November interest rate decision. The outcome could significantly influence the pound's value, but several factors come into play.

If all members of the Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) vote to maintain the current interest rate, and there are no substantial alterations to inflation and growth forecasts, the pound may remain relatively unaffected. This decision aligns with market expectations and is unlikely to cause significant ripples in financial markets.

However, for forward-looking observers, the key focus will be on the guidance provided in the policy statement and the forecasts outlined in the Monetary Policy Report.

Some market sentiment suggests that the BoE might aim to maintain its 'high-for-longer' message, ensuring it remains the primary takeaway from November's policy statement. Such a message could lend support to the pound.

In recent times, there have been no upward adjustments to the base rate, accompanied by indications that rate cuts are not on the immediate horizon. This message may offer some upside for GBP, especially given the already modest expectations for further tightening.

S&P 500 Analysis: Powell Adds Bullish Momentum
wBlfqbw.jpg


As expected, the Fed left the rate unchanged. Market participants' attention was focused on Powell's press conference, as he said:
→ Risks have now become almost balanced;
→ Inflation expectations are at a good level.

The media publishes the opinions of experts who generally agree that although Jerome Powell has not ruled out the possibility of another rate increase, he does not seem to be very supportive of this idea. So the Fed is not as aggressive as it could be.

As a result, the probability of a rate hike in December has dropped to 20%, and the probability that the rate hike cycle has ended is at 70%.

Bitcoin Updates Its Maximum for the Year
Ts2Ra8Q.jpg


The cryptocurrency market showed a correlation with the stock market, gaining bullish momentum amid softening rhetoric from the Federal Reserve.

The price of the main cryptocurrency reached USD 35,900 for the first time in 18 months.

Wherein:
→ the positivity is also due to expectations that the US Securities and Exchange Commission will approve a Bitcoin ETF. According to analysts at Bernstein (an asset management firm), this could happen by the first quarter of 2024.
→ according to the same analysts, the price of Bitcoin could reach USD 150k by 2025;
→ Jurrien Timmer, director of global macroeconomics at Fidelity, called bitcoin a commodity currency or exponential gold that aims to be a store of value and a hedge against monetary depreciation.

The Franc May Continue to Strengthen amid Low Inflation
jogDlcT.jpg


Today it became known about the level of inflation in Switzerland. Compared to the US, UK, and other countries, Switzerland can boast of a CPI of only 0.1%. The minimal increase in prices is due to an increase in fuel costs due to the rise in oil prices in the second half of the year. Thus, the country’s economy provides more arguments in favor of the protected harbor status.

On October 5, we wrote that the Swiss franc was near an important resistance, forming an AB double top. After this, the rate fell by 2.5% to form the October low, and now the chart provides a new piece of information for analysis, in particular about the 0.909 level, which acts as an important resistance.

The USD/CHF price has interacted with it before (as shown by the arrows), but note:
→ the level was able to stop the sharp increase on October 31;
→ did not allow the price to reach the upper boundary of the ascending channel (shown in blue);
→ the price only briefly stayed higher. The bulls were unable to gain a foothold above 0.909, and the rate fell to the lower border of the channel.
