The shares of Bank of America, the largest financial conglomerate in the US, are moving within the corrective trend of around 34.

On the daily chart, the price has left the global downward channel with dynamic boundaries at 27 – 33 and is trying to stay within the corrective trend that began after overcoming the initial 23.6% Fibonacci correction at 34.7. On the four-hour chart, it is seen that the upward impulse has high prospects for implementation. However, they are relevant only after the quotes reconsolidation above 34.70.

GBPUSD - Quotes have overcome all obstacles on the way to the 2020 minimum​

Inflation in the UK reached 10.1% in annual terms, and the Nationwide house price index in August was 10.0%, and over the winter period, according to many analysts, they can grow even more. In addition, the yield of 10-year British bonds increased by more than 90 basis points, and 2-year securities — by 100 basis points.

An additional negative factor for the pound remains the political uncertainty caused by the election of a new leader of the Conservative Party and the Prime Minister of the country. Foreign Minister Liz Truss and former Chancellor of the Exchequer Rishi Sunak are running for the post, and the name of the winner will be announced early next week. The reaction of the British currency to the results can be unpredictable, so investors are currently continuing to monitor the rhetoric of both candidates.

In turn, the USD is strengthening due to the tightening of the monetary policy of the US Fed. Investors' attention will be focused on the August data on changes in the number of people employed in the non-agricultural sector, which will be published on Friday at 14:30 (GMT+2). It is expected that the indicator will be adjusted from 528.0K to 300.0K. If the actual value turns out to be close to the forecast or exceeds it, then the USD is likely to continue to strengthen.

The long-term trend is downward. Market participants have broken down the support area of 1.1768–1.1695 and the next target is to update the 2020 minimum in the area of 1.1440.

Within the framework of the mid–term downtrend, market participants have reached the target zone 2 (1.1572–1.1536), in the event of a breakdown of which the decline is likely to continue with a target in target zone 3 (1.1212-1.1176). The key resistance of the trend is shifting to 1.1964–1.1928.

Resistance levels: 1.1695, 1.1768 | Support levels: 1.144, 1.13​

Shares of Visa, America's largest multinational payment services company, are correcting at 198.

On the daily chart, a global Triangle pattern with dynamically narrowing boundaries at 185 – 217 is developing, and at the moment, the price is heading towards the support line.

NI 225 - Japanese bond market continues strong growth​

The asset loses value after the publication of data on household spending, reflecting a decrease of 1.4% in monthly terms. Nevertheless, tomorrow the direction of movement of quotations may change after the statistics on the gross domestic product (GDP) of Japan are presented. Preliminary estimates are quite optimistic: analysts assume that the indicator will add 0.7% in Q2, thereby supporting the growth of annual GDP by 2.9% compared to the previous estimate of 2.2%.

In the domestic bond market, an auction was held this week to place long-term 30-year stocks at a rate of 1.235%, exceeding the previous 1.119%, which confirms a serious trend towards strengthening the debt market. As for the current dynamics, 5-year treasury securities added 50.00%, 9-year ones — 7.92%, and global 20-year ones — 3.76%.

CAC 40 - French stock market continues to decline​

Weak Friday statistics acted as a driver of the instrument's decline. The French Manufacturing PMI in September fell from 50.6 points to 47.8 points, and the Services PMI was 53.0 points.

In turn, the popular 10-year bonds are trading at a rate of 2.597%, exceeding the 2.442% shown last week. Global 20-year securities continue to grow, and the rate on them exceeded the peak values of mid-summer at the level of 2.724%, amounting to 2.754%.

DAX 40 - German stock market remains under pressure​

Despite the fact that the leading stock indicators of the Eurozone showed strong growth in yesterday's trading, the German market index was able to interrupt its global decline only briefly, and now the DAX 40 is correcting down, trading at 12140.

The upward dynamics was a reaction to the rhetoric of the President of the European Central Bank (ECB) Christine Lagarde, who announced an increase in interest rates at at least three subsequent meetings of the regulator. At the same time, the GfK Group published October data on the indicator of Consumer Confidence in Germany, which is the leading indicator. The value turned out to be the worst in the history of observations, dropping to -42.5 points from -36.8 points in September, which was the main reason for the negative dynamics of the DAX 40 index.
