OPEC Forecasts an Increase in Oil Demand in 2024
5dqGPe1.jpg

Yesterday, the monthly oil market review was published:

β†’ OPEC expects global oil demand to increase by 2.25 million barrels per day (b/d) in 2024, representing a 2.2% increase compared to 2023.

β†’ In 2025, OPEC predicts a demand increase of 1.85 million barrels per day, reaching 106.21 million barrels per day. It is anticipated that the growth in oil consumption in 2025 will be driven by China, the Middle East, and India.

This aligns with Occidental Petroleum's perspective, where they anticipate a global oil shortage starting in 2025, as the pace of global oil demand growth is roughly four times higher than the volumes of new reserves.

However, according to Citi analysts, the price of Brent crude oil in 2025 is expected to be $60 per barrel due to oversupply.

As of today, the price of Brent crude oil is fluctuating in the consolidation zone around $77 per barrel. Market participants are closely monitoring the potential for an increase in the Brent oil price due to geopolitical tensions. For instance, Maersk has reported that escalation in the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aden will lead to disruptions in global logistics.

Market Analysis: GBP/USD Recovers While EUR/GBP Dives Below Support
RxiVS0O.jpg

GBP/USD is attempting a recovery wave above the 1.2690 resistance. EUR/GBP declined steadily below the 0.8585 and 0.8570 support levels.

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

  • The British Pound is attempting a fresh increase above 1.2650.
  • There is a key contracting triangle forming with support near 1.2690 on the hourly chart of GBP/USD at FXOpen.
  • EUR/GBP is trading in a bearish zone below the 0.8585 pivot level.
  • There is a connecting bearish trend line forming with resistance near 0.8570 on the hourly chart at FXOpen.

GBP/USD Technical Analysis
Ppedspo.png

On the hourly chart of GBP/USD at FXOpen, the pair declined after it failed to clear the 1.2800 resistance. As mentioned in the previous analysis, the British Pound even traded below the 1.2715 support against the US Dollar.

Finally, the pair tested the 1.2600 zone and is currently attempting a fresh increase. The bulls were able to push the pair above the 50-hour simple moving average and 1.2740. The pair even climbed above the 50% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the 1.2785 swing high to the 1.2596 low.

On the upside, the GBP/USD chart indicates that the pair is facing resistance near 1.2715. It coincides with the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the 1.2785 swing high to the 1.2596 low.

The next major resistance is near 1.27640. A close above the 1.2740 resistance zone could open the doors for a move toward 1.2790. Any more gains might send GBP/USD toward 1.2840.

On the downside, there is a key support forming near a contracting triangle at 1.2690. If there is a downside break below 1.2690, the pair could accelerate lower. The first major support is near the 1.2640 level.

The next key support is seen near 1.2600, below which the pair could test 1.2550. Any more losses could lead the pair toward the 1.2500 support.

NASDAQ 100 Reaches Historic High. META Shares May Surpass the Historical High
IN8Vl1w.jpg

The American stock index NASDAQ 100 has set a new historical high, surpassing the psychological mark of 17,000 points.

The growth was attributed to:

β†’ Analysts at Bank of America raising the rating of AAPL stocks, recommending them for BUY. The price of AAPL shares rose by almost 4%.

β†’ The growth of AMD and NVDA stock prices, as chip manufacturers are significant beneficiaries due to the widespread adoption of AI.

β†’ The earnings season gaining momentum. Market participants anticipate strong results from major technology companies (MSFT, GOOGL, NVDA, and others).

Note the movement of META stock price – the social media giant is close to reclaiming a $1 trillion market capitalisation.

The Dollar Is Strengthening, Driven by Employment Data
Mtrlwuk.jpg

Yesterday's US labour market data indicated an increase in employment, dampening hopes of an interest rate cut. The Labor Department stated on Thursday that initial claims for state unemployment benefits fell by 16,000 to 187,000, seasonally adjusted, for the week ending January 13, which is the lowest level since September 2022 and below economists' expectations of 207,000. Separate data from the US Department of Commerce showed that single-family housing construction slowed in December after a previous period of growth. The low supply in the secondary market continues to support new construction. Throughout the day, the US will release data on existing home sales, which may increase by 0.8-0.9%, equivalent to around 3.82 million units sold, as well as the University of Michigan Consumer Confidence Index, with forecasts suggesting a slight increase from 69.7 points to 70.0 points.

EUR/USD
Y97mpL2.png

The EUR/USD pair is decreasing after an earlier rise. According to EUR/USD technical analysis, immediate resistance can be seen at 1.0906, and a breakthrough could trigger an upward move to 1.0958. On the other hand, the nearest support is visible at 1.0844, and a breakthrough below may lead the pair to 1.0800. The euro's exchange rate has remained nearly unchanged as investors digest the December meeting minutes of the European Central Bank. According to reports on Thursday, ECB policymakers expressed confidence in achieving the inflation target but acknowledged numerous risks, justifying the continuation of a stable policy and high borrowing costs. The ECB kept interest rates unchanged at the meeting and emphasised the absence of upcoming rate hikes. With the focus shifting to the ECB's January policy decision, the market is entering a period of calm.

The previous downward channel is still in place. The price has now retreated from the upper channel boundary and may continue to decline.

EUR/USD, GBP/USD, USD/JPY Analysis: The Dollar Is Weakening Against the Euro and Pound
oqduPzz.jpg

Recent economic data and comments from Federal Reserve representatives have dampened expectations of a rapid interest rate cut. More optimistic than expected consumer sentiment data added to the list of reliable economic data published this week, including retail sales and unemployment benefit claims. The positive indicators eased expectations that the Fed would begin lowering the key rate as early as March and provided confidence that the US economy is not immediately threatened by a recession. The dollar index, which tracks the dollar's value against a basket of six currencies, fell by 0.08% to 103.26, although it rose by 0.8% over the week.

EUR/USD
UW5PPT1.png

The EUR/USD pair is showing a modest increase, developing a corrective impulse formed last week. The euro is testing the 1.0900 level for an upward breakout amid the absence of macroeconomic publications. According to EUR/USD technical analysis, immediate resistance can be seen at 1.0909, and a breakthrough could trigger an increase to 1.0958. On the other hand, the nearest support is at 1.0844, and a break below could lead the pair to 1.0800.

Investors will focus on the monthly report from the German Bundesbank during the day, which may influence market expectations regarding the pace of possible ECB interest rate cuts this year. Additionally, on Wednesday, January business activity statistics in the services sector will be presented in the EU and the US. Predictions suggest that the Eurozone services sector index from S&P Global will strengthen from 48.8 to 49.0, while in the US, it will decrease from 51.4 to 51.0. On Thursday, a meeting of the European regulator will take place, and officials may provide comments that will affect the movement of the single currency quotes, although no changes in the direction of the agency's monetary policy are expected: the interest rate is expected to remain at 4.50%, and the deposit rate at 4.00%.

The price broke the upper boundary of the descending channel and may continue to rise.

Microsoft Is at All-Time High Despite Boardroom Email Hack Claim
dnsMrcJ.jpg

Microsoft Corporation is one of the longer established publicly listed high-technology companies within the North American 'big tech' industry.

Its foundation pre-dates the wave of internet giants that rose to prominence at the beginning of this millennium by such a margin that it was in existence and already a major corporation before many of the leaders of other tech firms around the world were actually born.

Microsoft's corporate standing differs from many of its peers in many other ways, too. Not only is it based in Seattle, its original homeland, as opposed to Silicon Valley in the next state westward, but it also manufactures computer hardware components as well as software, marking it out as a comprehensive provider of all aspects of the computer science industry. It could be fair to consider that Microsoft was viewed as a potential direct rival for Apple when Apple was founded just one year later, in 1976.

Since then, the two have been at the very top of their commercial game. However, Microsoft has recently been going from strength to strength, which is a remarkable feat considering its wranglings with anti-competition authorities in the United Kingdom and the United States, two of its vital markets.

This week, however, a further matter of interest has surfaced, adding to the ongoing market value speculation surrounding the viability of Microsoft's proposals to acquire electronic entertainment company Activision Blizzard for almost $69 billion, which has been an ongoing matter since the beginning of 2022.

As Microsoft's stock made an overall upward movement during the course of last year in the face of anti-competition authorities putting the brakes on the progress of the company's plans to acquire Activision Blizzard, the new year arrived with the deal still not complete and the American authorities sticking firmly to their premise that such an acquisition would create the largest corporate entity in the video game industry worldwide, potentially lessening the ability for other globally established companies such as Sony to compete in the market with its Playstation range of video games.

This matter rumbled on within the United States, but the British authorities made their decision to approve the merger later last year.

USD/JPY: The Yen Pauses in Anticipation of the Bank of Japan's Decision
2Eei3RV.jpg

In 2024, the yen has significantly depreciated against other currencies. The USD/JPY chart indicates that since the first trading day of January, the exchange rate has risen by more than 5%. However, since the 18th, there has been a lull, and it may be disrupted today or tomorrow due to the Bank of Japan's meeting, during which comments on monetary policy will be provided.

According to Reuters, traders expect that interest rates will not be raised, remaining in the negative territory. This expectation is based on recent "peaceful" comments from the Bank of Japan, coupled with the country facing a serious test in the form of an earthquake on the west coast.

Currencies Consolidate Awaiting Bank of Canada and ECB Verdicts
bhXKZ8E.jpg

The last full trading week of January is highly saturated with important fundamentals. This morning, the Bank of Japan held its meeting, tomorrow, the Bank of Canada will announce its verdict, and on Thursday, the ECB's press conference is scheduled. Major currency pairs, in anticipation of the mentioned events, continue to trade within narrow corridors formed earlier.

USD/CAD
K7wZYaG.png

The USD/CAD chart shows that the currency pair is trading near recent highs at 1.3520-1.3480. After an early-year rise, the pair retreated to support at the alligator lines on the daily timeframe. Yesterday, the price dropped to 1.3420 but interrupted the downward correction and rose to 1.3480 by evening. With a corresponding fundamental background, the pair may break the upper fractal at 1.3540 and continue to rise towards 1.3680-1.3570. The cancellation of the upward scenario may be considered with a confident fixation below 1.3400.

At 16:30 GMT+3 today, we await the publication of data on the new housing price index in Canada for December. Tomorrow at 18:00 GMT+3, the Bank of Canada will announce its decision on the base interest rate. Analysts predict that officials will leave the rate unchanged. For market participants, the Canadian regulator's comments on credit and monetary policy for the current year will be crucial.

The Price of Bitcoin Has Dropped Below 40,000: What's Next?
cBf7OAf.jpg

The value of the main cryptocurrency has fallen below the psychological mark for the first time since December 4th of last year. According to on-chain metrics services, the decline in the price of Bitcoin on cryptocurrency exchanges triggered the liquidation of buyer positions for more than 25 million dollars in just 2 hours.

This decline confirms the significance of the three black crows pattern (indicated by the arrow) and the principle of "buy the rumour, sell the fact" – as we discussed in the Bitcoin price analysis on January 15th.

What's next? Will the price continue to decrease?

JPM head Jamie Dimon, as well as legendary investor Peter Schiff, are pessimistic. In their opinion, Bitcoin is a speculative asset. Jamie Dimon explicitly advises staying away from bitcoins, while Peter Schiff, comparing Bitcoin to gold, prefers the precious metal.

On the other hand, the current decrease may indicate a correction within an upward trend. This perspective is held by financial expert and publicist Anthony Scaramucci.

S&P 500 Trades at Record Highs, Further Adding to US Stock Bonanza
GOtcdXv.jpg

Who would have thought it?

Two years ago, in the grip of spiralling inflation and a considerable lull in the value of various stock market indices with major North American companies being key contingents, when financial analyses were awash with pessimism, it would have been a hard prediction that the beginning of 2024 would play host to high stock values across the board and a booming US economy.

The inflation of 2021 and 2022 was followed by high-profile banking collapses and US involvement in geopolitical instability in various global regions; however, here we are about to enter the final week of the first month of 2024, and the markets are looking extremely healthy.

Today's focus for those observing the performance of stock markets is firmly fixed on the S&P 500 index, which concluded the US trading session yesterday at an all-time high.

This is a very interesting dynamic, especially considering that this upward direction is not unique to the prestigious stocks of long-established companies included in the S&P 500 index but is also noticeable among other indices in US markets, with the NASDAQ also having increased in value, alluding to a business-as-usual scenario in Silicon Valley.

Even more interestingly, this milestone-crossing strength appears to be organic, as there has not been a specific event that could have caused it.

Analysis this morning is focusing on relatively well-understood dynamics which have existed in US markets for a while now, alluding to the forthcoming Federal Reserve policymakers meeting on January 30 being anticipated with some degree of optimism and last week's publicised speech by the Federal Reserve Board of Governors member Christopher Waller in which he stated his optimistic point of view that the 2% target of inflation could be reached and sustained within the United States.

deUcGsi.jpg

On the hourly chart of EUR/USD at FXOpen, the pair struggled to clear the 1.0915 resistance zone. The Euro started a fresh decline and traded below the 1.0880 support zone against the US Dollar.

There was a break below a key bullish trend line with support at 1.0880. The pair even declined below 1.0840 and tested the 1.0820 zone. A low is formed near 1.0821 and the pair is now correcting losses.

If not, the pair might resume its decline. The first major support on the EUR/USD chart is near 1.0840. The next key support is at 1.0820.

USD/JPY Reaches 10-week High amid Statements by Head of Bank of Japan
wHuEgqq.jpeg

Bank of Japan Governor Kazuo Ueda said today that there is a high likelihood that accommodative monetary conditions will continue even after the bank ends its negative interest rate policy β€” an event that is expected as early as next month, according to Reuters.

On the other hand, the USD index has been strengthening since the beginning of 2024, indicating that market participants assume that the easing of the current tight Fed policy may last longer.

As a result, the price of USD/JPY rises again towards the psychological level of 150 yen per dollar.

The weekly USD/JPY chart shows that:
β†’ After an attempt at a bullish breakout of this level in the fall of 2022, a strong bearish impulse occurred (justified by the actions of the Bank of Japan to protect the yen), and the price dropped below the level of 130 yen per dollar in early 2023.
β†’ After an attempt at a bullish breakout in the fall of 2023, a less powerful bearish movement formed, the rate did not fall below 140 yen per dollar.

Bitcoin Recovers to January 11 Prices When ETFs Were Approved
h6GJcvk.jpeg

Waiting for SEC regulatory approval of applications to create a Bitcoin ETF was an important driver of Bitcoin price growth at the end of 2023. However, when applications were actually approved on January 11, 2024 (here is what we wrote about it), there was a decline in cryptocurrency prices.

In particular, the price of Bitcoin decreased from a maximum of January 11 at USD 48,877 per coin, dropping below USD 40k in the twenties of January.

Fortunately for investors in the cryptocurrency market, the collapse did not occur, and today the price of Bitcoin exceeded USD 46k, thereby recovering to the levels of January 11.

This was facilitated by:
β†’ the Chinese New Year (celebration begins on February 10). As crypto media write, traditionally during this period there is an optimistic revival in the cryptocurrency market.
β†’ Interest in investing in risky assets in anticipation of the Fed lowering interest rates. Access to cryptocurrency investments has become easier with the approval of ETFs.

Nikkei 225 Index Price Sets 34-year High
JWuxPjs.png

The price of the Nikkei 225 index is fixed above the level of 37,000 points. The last time this happened was after the index reached its all-time high in 1989.

The bullish behavior of the Japanese stock market has the following reasons:

β†’ Strong corporate reporting. In particular, SoftBank shares rose 11% due to increased sales of its subsidiary Arm, which develops chips for the development of artificial intelligence.
β†’ Dovish view of the Bank of Japan's monetary policy. Thus, Bank of Japan Vice Governor Shinichi Uchida said that the central bank will not aggressively tighten its monetary policy even if it ultimately decides to end negative interest rates.

Markets Await Publication of Key Macroeconomic Statistics from the US and UK
ZxEe7VD.jpeg

Tomorrow, January inflation data in the United States will be presented: the consumer price index in monthly terms is projected to slow from 0.3% to 0.2%, and in annual terms from 3.4% to 3.0%, the upper limit of the target range of the US Federal Reserve. The indicator excluding food and energy prices may be adjusted from 3.9% to 3.8%. With the opening of the American session, the focus will shift to January inflation data in the United States. Analysts do not expect significant fluctuations in the indicator, but still hope that the publication will become a new impetus for the early easing of monetary policy by the US Federal Reserve. Thus, experts expect that the consumer price index will decrease from 3.4% to 3.0% on an annual basis and from 0.3% to 0.2% on a monthly basis. Markets have almost completely revised expectations for the regulator's March meeting and are now inclined to believe that the interest rate will be adjusted by 25 basis points in May.

EUR/USD
ifdVna3.png

The EUR/USD pair is showing moderate growth, developing upward dynamics since February 6. The euro is testing the 1.0790 mark for an upward breakout, updating local highs from February 2. Immediate resistance can be seen at 1.0805, an upward breakout could trigger an increase to 1.0897. On the downside, immediate support is seen at 1.0767, a break below could take the pair towards 1.0750.

At the same time, activity on the market remains quite restrained, and trading participants are in no hurry to open new positions ahead of the publication of macroeconomic statistics. On Wednesday, investors will evaluate the final data on eurozone GDP for the fourth quarter of 2023, as well as December statistics on industrial production. Forecasts suggest the region's economy will gain another 0.1% annual growth, while industrial output could fall 4.1% from -6.8% in the previous month. Last Friday, the eurozone published data on inflation in Germany: the consumer price index in January was 0.2%, the same as a month earlier, which coincided with market expectations, and in annual terms the figure remained at 2.9%.

Technical analysis of EUR/USD shows that a new upward channel has formed based on last week’s highs. Now the price has moved away from the upper limit and may continue to decline.

Volatility Leads To Pessimism Around UK's FTSE 100 Index
IRztjDq.jpeg

During the past few weeks, the FTSE 100 index, which consists of the stocks of the 100 most prestigious and well-established large corporations listed on the London Stock Exchange, has been somewhat volatile.

The foray into the new year so far has been a far cry from the same period last year, when euphoria among investors and analysts alike abounded during February 2023 due to London's long-established index having surpassed the 8,000 point mark for the first time in history.

Here we are now in February 2024, and things are somewhat different.

As trading begins for the new week ahead, there is a pessimistic tone to many analyses relating to the performance of the FTSE 100, especially compared to other indices comprising stocks listed on other globally recognised premium venues.

The overall performance of the FTSE 100 index since the beginning of 2024 has included a series of upward and downward movements; however, as this week began, the index was valued at 7,583 points as depicted by the bottom of the candlestick at 9.00 am UK time, according to the FXOpen chart, which is considerably lower than a top value of 7,711 on February 7.

Bitcoin Price Exceeds Psychological Level of $50k
bd6vifW.jpeg

The last time the BTC price was above $50,000 was in December 2021, making its way to the low around $15,500 reached in November 2022.

Reaching the $50,000 level was facilitated by:
β†’ waiting for the halving, after which the price of Bitcoin is believed to receive a bullish impulse due to a reduction in supply;
β†’ the effect of the approval of a Bitcoin ETF;
β†’ expectation of easing of the Fed's monetary policy, which increases interest in risky assets. By the way, the Nasdaq-100 technology stock index set a historical high yesterday, breaking the level of 18,000 points.

At the same time, the BTC/USD chart shows that:
β†’ the price of Bitcoin moves within an ascending channel (shown in blue), which dates back to last fall;
β†’ from the point of view of technical analysis, with this channel construction, the price of Bitcoin still has some room to rise to its upper limit.
