USD Index Rebounds from 8-Week Low, Impacting EUR/USD Pair
The USD Index (DXY), measuring the US dollar against various currencies, rebounded from an eight-week low, impacting the EUR/USD pair. This was influenced by mixed signals from Federal Reserve (Fed) officials regarding future rate hikes, leading to higher US Treasury bond yields and prompting some short-covering in the USD.
Fed Governor Lisa Cook suggested that the current interest rate is sufficient to achieve the Fed's 2% inflation target but stressed the importance of remaining vigilant. In contrast, Minneapolis Fed President Neel Kashkari leaned towards a more cautious approach, suggesting he'd prefer overtightening to ensure inflation returns to the target.
This divergence in views adds uncertainty to the Fed's next policy moves. Investors increasingly believe that the Fed is approaching the end of its rate-hiking cycle, particularly after softer US jobs data last Friday. Market pricing even suggests a possibility of rate cuts in June 2024. Consequently, all eyes are on Fed Chair Jerome Powell's upcoming appearances for further insights into the central bank's stance.
EUR/USD retraced after reaching the 1.0750 level, which was a correction following a significant bullish movement on Friday. The 1.0700 level may act as support before seeing a potential uptrend. The market is currently experiencing uncertainty as it awaits speeches from members of both the Fed and ECB. The 1.0800 level remains a major resistance target.

GBP Faces Selling Pressure Following Concerns of UK Economic Slowdown and Rising Cost
The British Pound (GBP) is encountering selling pressure attributed to concerns surrounding a UK economic slowdown driven by the Bank of England's (BoE) tightening monetary policy. The GBP/USD pair, previously on an uptrend, now hovers around 1.2330 without robust support for the Pound.
The recent resurgence in the GBP/USD pair was fueled by improved market sentiment, stemming from expectations of a pause in interest rate hikes by the Federal Reserve (Fed) and reduced tensions in the Middle East. Nevertheless, the UK economy faces the risk of recession, with sectors like manufacturing, services, and housing struggling to adapt to higher BoE interest rates. The already weak consumer spending is poised to worsen due to escalating living costs.
A survey conducted by Accenture and YouGov revealed that a significant portion of UK adults, approximately two-thirds, are disinterested in partaking in Black Friday, Cyber Monday, or Boxing Day discounts due to the ongoing cost of living crisis. According to S&P Global's report, all sectors, including manufacturing, services, and construction, continue to languish below the 50.0 threshold, indicating ongoing economic challenges.
On the 1D chart, GBPUSD is in a corrective phase after touching the 200MA. The first support is at 1.2300 followed by 1.2260. A breakout of the 200MA would take the price to the next target of 1.2600.

USD/JPY Traders Await Fed Official Speeches
Traders adjust their positions in anticipation of speeches by key Federal Reserve (Fed) officials, including Fed Chair Jerome Powell. There is growing speculation that the Fed may soon conclude its rate hike cycle and even consider rate cuts in June 2024, following a weaker-than-expected US jobs report.
The comments from Fed officials have been mixed, with Fed Governor Lisa Cook expressing confidence in the current interest rate's ability to achieve the Fed's 2% inflation target. In contrast, Minneapolis Fed President Neel Kashkari advocates a more cautious approach to expedite reaching the inflation target, leading to a rebound in US Treasury bond yields and supporting the USD/JPY pair.
Meanwhile, the Japanese Yen (JPY) is under pressure due to the Bank of Japan's (BoJ) dovish stance and minor adjustments to its yield curve control policy. However, the potential for further USD/JPY gains is limited due to concerns about potential Japanese intervention in the forex market to prevent prolonged Yen depreciation. Traders should closely monitor Fed officials' remarks for potential market-moving events in the absence of significant US economic releases.
The USDJPY has gained some ground, recovering from the losses it incurred on Friday. Technically, the pair appears uncertain in terms of direction but there is a possibility of reversal if the BoJ intervenes. The market doesn't seem to believe that the pair will continue to advance, so a more cautious approach is being taken.

Gold Prices Face Selling Pressure Due to Dollar Recovery and Geopolitical Factors
The gold price (XAU/USD) remains under selling pressure, reaching a two-week low below the $1,970 level. The continued recovery of the US Dollar (USD) from its lowest level since September 20 is contributing to the downtrend. In addition, the lack of major developments in the conflict between Israeland Hamas is driving flows away from the safe-haven metal. However, the risk of a wider crisis in the Middle East and economic uncertainties in China and Europe are holding investors back and giving gold some support. Furthermore, the decline in US Treasury bond yields, fueled by expectations that the Federal Reserve (Fed) will maintain the status quo in December, should limit losses for the non-yielding asset. The upcoming release of US Trade Balance data and speeches by influential FOMC members, along with Fed Chair Jerome Powell's appearances, will provide further insights into the Fed's rate-hike path and influence the near-term dynamics of the USD. Geopolitics and overall market sentiment will also play a role in determining gold's direction.
Gold is coming back as a result of the yields and dollar advances. The next support level is at 1960, followed by 1947.

WTI Crude Oil Retreats on Weak Chinese Economic Data Despite Production Cuts
During Asian trading hours, Western Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude oil trades lower around $79.80 per barrel. The retracement is driven by downbeat economic data from China, offsetting the positive impact of production cuts by Saudi Arabia and Russia. China's Trade Balance data for October showed a reduced surplus balance of $56.53 billion, with exports declining by 6.4%. UBS analysts suggest the production cuts may extend into Q1 2024 due to seasonally weaker oil demand. Global manufacturing PMIs indicate a slowing economic growth, which could limit oil prices as demand decreases. Concerns about a warmer-than-expected winter in the northern hemisphere also weigh on crude oil prices. The US Dollar's recovery, driven by improved bond yields, dampens the value of crude oil. Traders expect the US Federal Reserve to pause its monetary policy tightening, with potential rate cuts by the end of 2024. The focus will be on China's Consumer Price Index for October.
WTI is expected to break down to $78, a confluence point.

EUR/USD Faces Resistance with Risk-On Sentiment and Falling US Bond Yields
EUR/USD faced resistance despite a steady US dollar on Wednesday. The market's risk-on sentiment and falling US bond yields hindered the USD's recent recovery. The European Central Bank's (ECB) apparent pause in rate hikes weighed on the euro, limiting EUR/USD gains.
US bond yields dropped and strong equities failed to improve the US Dollar, partly due to uncertainty regarding the Federal Reserve's rate hike plans. The Fed hinted that current financial conditions may be tight enough to combat inflation, possibly pausing rate increases. A softer US jobs report also suggests a rate hold in December, but some Fed officials remain hawkish.
Traders await Fed Chair Jerome Powell's speech, while weak German Industrial Production data and ECB rate hike uncertainty constrain the euro. As the market eyes Eurozone Retail Sales data in Germany, the Consumer Price Inflation rate for October 2023 was confirmed at 3.8% year-on-year, a significant drop from the previous month's 4.5%, along with the broader market sentiment, for EUR/USD trading cues.
EUR/USD continued to decline on its third day. A short-term level of support doesn't seem clear, but the 1.0550 level may hold the price.

GBP Under Pressure Ahead of BoE and Fed Speeches
Traders are cautious ahead of speeches by Bank of England (BoE) Governor Andrew Bailey and Federal Reserve (Fed) Chair Jerome Powell. The UK's bleak economic outlook and expectations of a BoE rate cut in August 2024 are weighing on the GBP.
Investors are also watching Powell's comments for hints about future rate hikes, as the Fed recently indicated it might be done with its tightening policy. Despite some hawkish statements from FOMC members, the USD has seen a retracement due to lower US jobs data and declining US Treasury bond yields.
Overall, the fundamental backdrop favors bearish sentiment for GBP/USD, with a potential rate cut by the BoE and uncertainty around the Fed's rate-hike path. Technical levels are closely monitored.
The GBPUSD selloff persists, with the next support levels at 1.2260 and 1.2200, while the 1.2100 level is expected to provide strong support for the price.

USD/JPY Rises as Bank of Japan Adopts Dovish Stance
The Japanese Yen (JPY) continues with its relative underperformance in the wake of a more dovish stance adopted by the Bank of Japan (BoJ), which, in turn, is seen acting as a tailwind for the USD/JPY pair. The US Dollar (USD), on the other hand, stalls its goodish recovery move from a multi-week low touched on Monday and caps the upside for the major. Furthermore, traders opt to remain on the sidelines ahead of Federal Reserve (Fed) Chair Jerome Powell's speech later during the early North American session.
Bank of Japan (BoJ) Governor Kazuo Ueda is back on the wires on Wednesday, commenting on the central bank's exchange-traded funds (ETFs) buying to stabilize the market.
Today, the USDJPY exhibits a bullish trend, surging past the 150.00 mark due to the dollar's recovery. There is the possibility of BoJ intervention, which could introduce heightened volatility.

Gold Prices Under Pressure as Dollar Rises with Fed Caution
Gold prices remained below $1,970 per ounce on Wednesday after declining for two consecutive days, as the dollar continued to rise. Traders are anticipating US Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell's speech later today and are cautious due to the possible impact on gold prices.
In the latest central bank commentary, Minneapolis Fed President Neel Kashkari stated that it is too early to declare victory over inflation. Fed Governor Michelle Bowman reiterated her view that the central bank would likely need to raise short-term rates again.
The demand for gold decreased due to the waning geopolitical risk premium related to the Israel-Hamas war. Israeli authorities have announced temporary pauses in fighting to allow for humanitarian needs.
Gold is currently finding support at the 1963 level. If it falls further, the next support levels are at 1960 and 1947. Despite recent fluctuations, gold is still considered to be fundamentally bullish, with many supportive factors in play. From a technical standpoint, it may experience a temporary drop toward the 1947 level before resuming its bullish trend. This drop is due to the strong momentum that was observed for an entire month without a significant correction.

Crude Oil Prices Waver Amid Supply Signals
Crude oil prices fluctuate while the US Dollar tries to recover. In Asian trading, WTI is trading at $77.20 per barrel. Recently, oil prices have been falling due to increased supply signals, including a significant increase in US crude inventories.
The American Petroleum Institute (API) reported a nearly 12 million barrel increase in US crude oil stocks last week. Meanwhile, the Energy Information Administration (EIA) indicated a slight reduction in crude oil production and a decline in demand in the United States for this year. The EIA postponed the release of weekly inventory data and now expects a 300,000 barrels per day decrease in total petroleum consumption in the US, which is a reversal of its earlier forecast of a 100,000 barrels per day increase.
In addition, OPEC crude exports have risen by approximately 1 million barrels per day, driven by lower domestic demand in the Middle East. However, mixed economic data from China, the second-largest oil consumer, is adding to uncertainty. While China saw strong growth in oil imports in October, there was a simultaneous contraction in total exports of goods and services, raising concerns about global energy demand.
WTI is expected to break down to $78, a confluence point.

German CPI at 3.8%, Signals ECB Tightening Cycle Likely Completed

The final reading of the German Consumer Price Index (CPI) revealed an annual rate of 3.8%, the lowest since August 2021, with inflation slowing and the economy teetering on the brink of recession. This suggests that the European Central Bank (ECB) has likely completed its tightening cycle, aligning with market expectations despite recent comments from ECB policymakers like Philip Lane, who cautioned against drawing too much comfort from recent inflation figures. Lane emphasized the need for continued efforts to combat inflationary pressures, urging both companies and governments to contribute to avoiding stricter policies. U.S. Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia President Patrick Harker supported the Fed's recent decision to keep interest rates unchanged and cautioned against premature market reactions. Philip Lane of the ECB is also set to address the audience again on Thursday, along with President Lagarde.

EUR/USD is currently moving with uncertainty, awaiting further guidance. A clear short-term support level is not evident, but the 1.0550 level may provide price support.

UK's Q3 GDP Data to Influence BoE's December Monetary Policy


Investors are waiting for the release of Q3 Gross Domestic Product (GDP) data on Friday at 07:00 GMT, which will have a significant impact on the Bank of England's (BoE) monetary policy in December. The Pound Sterling (GBP) has been stagnant, and the GBP/USD pair is currently uncertain. The economic performance of the UK in July-September seems to be bleak, with declining consumer spending, poor Services PMI, delayed housing demand, and shrinking hiring. If the GDP report confirms this, it could lead to dovish expectations from BoE policymakers, particularly Swati Dhingra, who supports rate cuts in case of weaker growth. According to the GDP report, employment, and inflation data will be released next week.

Investors are anticipating UK factory data and Q3 GDP figures, and Pound Sterling is consolidating below the 1.2300 resistance level. Factory data is expected to show modest improvements, which could alleviate concerns about a slowdown in the UK economy. However, the key event to watch is the Q3 GDP data. Economists predict a nominal contraction due to underutilized production capacities and reduced consumer spending, especially in the service industry. BoE Chief Economist Huw Pill has suggested rate cuts in mid-2024 if the GDP report is weak.

The GBPUSD continues its downward trend, with the next support levels at 1.2260, followed by 1.2200. The solid support for the price is expected to be at 1.2100.

USD/JPY Pair Surges, Raises Questions About Japanese Intervention

There has been a recent increase in the USD/JPY pair, leading to speculation that Japanese authorities might intervene in the Forex market. This, along with the cautious market mood, is causing the safe-haven Japanese Yen (JPY) to gain some support. Additionally, the recent decline in US Treasury bond yields and the uncertainty over the Federal Reserve's (Fed) rate-hike path has caused a modest US Dollar (USD) downtick, which is further pressuring the major.

However, the dovish stance taken by the Bank of Japan (BoJ) is limiting the downside for the USD/JPY pair. BoJ Governor Kazuo Ueda reiterated on Wednesday that the central bank will continue with ultra-loose policy until cost-push inflation transitions into price rises driven more by strong domestic demand and higher wages. This is a significant divergence from a relatively hawkish Fed.

The USDJPY is continuing its bullish trend beyond 150.00. The BoJ may intervene, creating volatility.

Gold Prices Hover at $1,950 with Fed Rate Hike Uncertainty

Gold prices experienced a decline on Thursday as it entered a bearish consolidation phase and traded within a narrow range during the early part of the European session. Currently, it's hovering around $1,950, just above its lowest level since October 19, which it reached yesterday. This decline is primarily due to uncertainty about future interest rate hikes by the Federal Reserve. Additionally, concerns about the Israel-Hamas conflict, which had been affecting market sentiment earlier in the week, have somewhat eased.

However, the downside for gold is being supported by the belief that the US central bank is unlikely to raise interest rates further. This expectation has led to a decrease in US Treasury bond yields, putting pressure on the US Dollar (USD) and providing some support for gold. Furthermore, concerns about China's economic situation and overall cautious market sentiment are also helping to limit the decline in the precious metal's price. Traders are awaiting more clarity on the Fed's future policy decisions, with a particular focus on Fed Chair Jerome Powell's upcoming speech during the US session.

Gold is currently undergoing a correction before continuing its upward trend. This correction is important as it can establish the old resistance level as a new support level.

Oil Prices Show Modest Gains Following Demand and Deflation Concerns


On Thursday, the price of oil slightly increased despite the deflationary signs in China. Investors awaited more information on the demand status from the world's two largest oil consumers. The prices had fallen over 2% on Wednesday, as concerns over the possible supply disruption in the Middle East eased and worries over the US and Chinese demand rose.

Furthermore, inflation data from China, published on Thursday, showed that the CPI for October decreased by 0.2% YoY, while PPI data fell by 2.6% YoY. It was largely in line with Reuters' poll that expected a decline of 0.1% in CPI and 2.7% in PPI. The customs data earlier in the week showed that China's total exports of goods and services contracted faster than anticipated, but its crude imports for October were robust.

On the other hand, Pan Gongsheng, the central bank governor, stated that China is expected to achieve its annual growth target of 5% this year, which is positive news for oil demand. However, inventory data from the US might indicate a weakening in demand. Sources revealed that the US crude oil inventories increased by 11.9 million barrels from the week to November 3. If confirmed, it would represent the largest weekly build since February. The weekly oil inventory data from the US Energy Information Administration (EIA) has been delayed until November 15 due to system upgrade.

WTI had more selloff and breaking solid support at the 87 and now continuing toward the next target at 74.

EUR/USD Downturn Continues Following Powell's Remarks on Fed Policy and Inflation

The EUR/USD took a decisive downturn after Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell's comments, moving toward weekly lows and showing a bearish trend. Although European Central Bank (ECB) officials briefly supported the euro, the market expects unchanged interest rates with debate focusing on the timing of a potential rate cut. This ECB support is likely to weaken as long as the US economy outperforms the Eurozone. US fundamentals favor the dollar, as emphasized by Powell's recent remarks.

Powell expressed the Federal Open Market Committee's (FOMC) lack of confidence in current monetary policy's ability to curb inflation to 2%. He also warned of potential inflation "head fakes," resulting in a stronger US dollar and surging bond yields.

US yields had already been rising before Powell's speech, possibly marking the end of a bond rally. The market will continue to assess Powell's speech, while the University of Michigan Consumer Sentiment survey adds to Friday's economic data.

EUR/USD experienced a sell-off yesterday and is relatively subdued today. The outlook remains uncertain, with a lack of clarity on short-term support levels. However, there is a possibility that the 1.0550 level could provide support, while the next resistance level stands at 1.0750.

UK GDP Grows by 0.6% Annually, Beating Expectations


The Office for National Statistics (ONS) reported that the UK's Gross Domestic Product (GDP) grew by 0.6% on an annual basis in the third quarter, matching the second quarter's growth and surpassing the market expectation of 0.5%. However, the UK's GDP only increased by 0.2% monthly and remained unchanged on a quarterly basis.

Additionally, data from the UK indicated positive growth in Industrial Production (1.5%) and Manufacturing Production (3%) on a yearly basis in September. On the other hand, Total Business Investment contracted by 4.2% on a quarterly basis in the third quarter.

The strength of the dollar today can be attributed to Powell's recent speech, where he emphasized that the Federal Reserve (Fed) is still in its tightening cycle and may consider further rate hikes if necessary. This statement dashed market hopes for a policy shift and strained the pound-dollar pair, leading to more selling pressure.

The GBPUSD maintains its downward trend, with the next support levels identified at 1.2260 and later 1.2200. A robust support level for the price is anticipated at 1.2100.

USD/JPY Extends Winning Streak on Powell's Hawkish Remarks, Intervention Concerns Arise

The USD/JPY currency pair has been on a winning streak for the last five days. It reached around 151.40 in early European trading, thanks to unexpected hawkish remarks made by Fed Chair Jerome Powell. Powell expressed concerns about inflation during an IMF event, which raised US Treasury yields and strengthened the USD against the JPY. This has led Japanese authorities to consider intervening to limit the USD/JPY pair's rise.

The US Dollar Index (DXY) surged to around 106.00, and the 10-year US bond yield increased to 4.62% due to Powell's statements. Meanwhile, the Bank of Japan (BoJ) remains dovish on their monetary policy, with Governor Kazuo Ueda emphasizing a cautious approach to exiting ultra-loose monetary policy.

The Japanese Yen is under pressure as lower wage growth may delay plans to exit the easy monetary policy. Decent wage growth is crucial for the BoJ to consider policy changes. Traders are closely watching the Fed's Logan speech and the preliminary Michigan Consumer Sentiment Index for November for trading cues in the USD/JPY pair.

The USDJPY is continuing its bullish trend beyond 151.00. The BoJ may intervene, creating volatility.

Gold Prices Show Modest Recovery with Hawkish Fed Remarks

Gold price (XAU/USD) experienced a modest recovery on Thursday, ending a three-day losing streak that had brought it to its lowest level since October 18, around $1,944. However, the recovery lacked follow-through buying, and during the European session, the precious metal slid back to the $1,955 area. This week, several influential members of the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) took a more hawkish stance while Fed Chair Jerome Powell mentioned on Thursday that policymakers are encouraged by the slowing pace of inflation but uncertain if the current policy is restrictive enough to maintain momentum. This has allowed the yield on the 10-year US government bond to rise from a one-month low, supporting the USD and putting pressure on the non-yielding gold. The easing concerns over the Israel-Hamas conflict have also contributed to the decline in demand for gold, although worries about China's worsening economic conditions may help limit the downside. Traders are now focusing on the release of the Michigan US Consumer Sentiment Index, which could impact the dynamics of the USD price. Overall, the broader risk sentiment and these upcoming factors should provide short-term trading opportunities in the gold market.

Gold faced rejection at the 1950 level, which serves as a significant confluence point for solid support and resistance. There is potential for a continuation upward in the market.

WTI Crude Oil Prices Face Third Consecutive Weekly Loss


West Texas Intermediate (WTI) Crude Oil prices climbed to $76.00/barrel during the Asian session, attracting some buyers. However, the commodity remains near its lowest level since July 21, indicating a potential third consecutive week of losses.

Investors anticipate that the Federal Reserve (Fed) will need to maintain higher interest rates for longer to address persistent inflation, raising concerns about economic headwinds from rising borrowing costs. Manufacturing sectors in the US, Europe, and China have reported worsening business conditions, further dampening crude oil demand.

Reduced risk premium over Middle East supply disruptions and increased US and Iranian crude production suggest oil markets may not be as tight as expected. Commitments from major producers Russia and Saudi Arabia to maintain supply cuts until year-end offer little support to crude oil prices.

The recent US Dollar (USD) recovery, driven by expectations of another Fed rate hike, supports a potential near-term depreciation for the USD-denominated commodity. Technical indicators suggest the path of least resistance for crude oil prices is downward. Any recovery could be viewed as a selling opportunity with limited staying power.

WTI had more selloffs and broke solid support at 87 and now continuing toward the next target at 74.

USD/JPY Momentum Grows Following Policy Divergence

The USD/JPY pair has been gaining momentum due to the ongoing monetary policy divergence, which is not seen as positive for the yen. With the current levels, it seems like an intervention from the BoJ is imminent, as they cannot accept such a deterioration in the yen's value.

Despite the recent correction, the outlook for gold remains positive, considering the fundamental factors.

The correction in WTI crude oil towards the $77.5 level appears normal before its potential continued downward trend. This bearish momentum is strongly supported by fundamental factors. The next support level at $74.2, which is near, will be a significant test for oil. A breach at this level could pave the way for oil prices to revisit their lowest levels not witnessed since July.

USD/JPY Surges to New High with Dollar Strength, BoJ Intervention Possible

In the latest market developments, the USD/JPY pair has experienced a notable rebound, reaching new highs following gains made by the US Dollar. The Japanese Yen, currently displaying weakness and lacking fundamental support, raises the likelihood of intervention by the Bank of Japan (BoJ) in the near future.

Analysts note the significant decline in the yen's value, prompting concerns within the BoJ. The central bank may take measures to stabilize the currency and prevent further depreciation, as an excessively weak yen can have broader implications for the Japanese economy.

Traders engaging in USD/JPY transactions are advised to exercise caution due to the observed high volatility, with an average movement of around 350 pips. The dynamics of the currency pair will be closely tied to potential interventions by the BoJ and how the market responds to these actions.

Oil Prices Bearish, Threatening to Break Key Support Level at $74.20


In the latest market update, oil prices are displaying a persistent bearish trend, with indicators pointing towards a potential descent to the crucial support level at $74.20. Analysts suggest that a breach of this support level could usher in a significant shift, entering what is considered the bottom zone and sending an alarming signal throughout the energy market.

The continued downward movement in oil prices is prompting attention from various market participants, including OPEC. OPEC, historically influential in stabilizing oil prices, may face increasing pressure to intervene if the support level is breached, as such a development could have broader implications for the energy sector.
