Analytical Euro to Dollar Predictions for 2024-2025
YhnxLNA.jpeg

The EUR/USD currency pair stands as a critical barometer of economic interactions and the relative strength between the Eurozone and the United States. This article delves into the recent history, economic outlooks, and analytical euro-to-dollar forecasts for this major currency pair in 2024 and 2025.

Recent EUR/USD History

From 2019 to the present, the EUR/USD currency pair has navigated through turbulent economic waters, influenced by a series of global events and differing monetary policies between Europe and the United States.

Initially, the euro experienced a gradual depreciation against the dollar, moving from around 1.14 at 2019’s open to close the year at 1.12. This was largely due to the European Central Bank's (ECB) continuation of its quantitative easing program, coupled with its persistently low interest rate of 0%.

The onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in early 2020 sent the euro tumbling further to a low of approximately 1.06 as panic gripped global markets. However, recovery was swift, and by September 2020, the euro had climbed to a high of about 1.20, bolstered by the US dollar's comparative weakness.

The euro fluctuated between 1.23 and 1.17 in the first half of 2021. However, inflation began to rise in both the Eurozone and US economy, but more so in the US. The anticipation of steep hikes by the Federal Reserve caused it to close near 1.13 by year's end.

Gold Price (XAU/USD) Is Testing an Important Resistance Zone
SfMmlDQ.png

On April 16, we wrote why the $2,380 zone is an important resistance area.

The XAU/USD chart shows that:

1) After fading fluctuations (they formed a narrowing consolidation triangle - shown in green), the price of gold dropped sharply (shown by a black arrow) on April 22-23.

2) Then, the price found support in the form of the lower border of the ascending channel (shown in blue), which has been in effect since the beginning of March. This led to the formation of another consolidation pattern between the blue lines.

3) An upward breakdown of the red lines on May 9 could be interpreted as an attempt by the bulls to resume the upward trend within the blue channel, but we could expect that the green triangle with its axis around 2380 would provide resistance.

On the hourly chart of EUR/USD at FXOpen, the pair started a fresh increase from the 1.0725 zone. The Euro cleared a few key hurdles near 1.0750 to move into a positive zone against the US Dollar.

The pair settled above the 1.0800 level and the 50-hour simple moving average. A high was formed at 1.0830 and the pair is now consolidating gains. Immediate support is near the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the 1.0775 swing low to the 1.0827 high at 1.0815.

The S&P 500 Index Has Reached a Significant Resistance Level
sp500.png

Analyzing the S&P 500 chart (US SPX 500 mini on FXOpen) on April 26, we wrote about how the April decline could be a correction to the lower boundary of the channel within the 2024 rally. Following this, a logical development would be for the bulls to attempt to resume the upward trend and make another attempt to breach the 5250 level.

Today, May 15, the price of the S&P 500 index (US SPX 500 mini on FXOpen) is at the 5250 level after a bullish breakout of the trendline (shown in red) that delineated the correction.

The price has risen by approximately 4.5% since the beginning of May as earnings season has not been disappointing, and traders anticipate the Federal Reserve will ease monetary policy.

Is further index growth possible?

Ben Snyder, Senior US Equity Market Strategist at Goldman Sachs, is positive in the long term but notes that:
→ the S&P 500 index has already surpassed the 5200 target level indicated by the bank's analysts;
→ an obvious risk of growth lies in the fact that companies may need to significantly raise profit forecasts.

Fundamental background has a significant influence on the dynamics of the S&P 500 index (US SPX 500 mini on FXOpen). For example, yesterday Producer Price Index (PPI) data was released. According to ForexFactory: PPI m/m actual = 0.5%, expected = 0.3%, a month ago = -0.1%.

The initial market reaction was a decline in the price of the S&P 500 index (US SPX 500 mini on FXOpen) – perhaps market participants were spooked by rising producer prices and the prospect of higher Fed rates. However, this was followed by a statement from Fed Chair Powell, who reassured the markets. According to him:
→ the next Fed move is unlikely to be a rate hike;
→ the PPI data is more "mixed than hot", considering that the previous period's data was revised downwards.

The Stock Price of PepsiСo (PEP) Is Retracting from Its Yearly High
wsd.jpg

On April 23, the quarterly report of PepsiCo's performance for the first quarter was published, which was awaited anxiously.

The issue stemmed from the fact that in December 2023, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced the recall of over 40 Quaker Oats products – a company owned by PepsiCo – due to potential salmonella contamination. This led to a 22% decline in sales volume of Quaker Food products in the first quarter.

However, the report exceeded expectations:
→ Earnings per share: Actual = $1.16, Expected = $1.518;
→ Gross revenue: Actual = $18.25 billion, Expected = $18.08 billion.

By April 25, the stock price of PepsiCo (PEP) reached its yearly high, surpassing the $180 mark.

Then, this week, specifically May 13, the stock price of PepsiCo (PEP) hit a new yearly high, exceeding $181.

The US Dollar Is Weakening Following Inflation Data
yen2.png

Yesterday saw the release of key economic indicators for the US. According to ForexFactory:

→ Core Price Index (CPI) monthly: actual = 0.3%, expected = 0.4%, previous = 0.4%;

→ Core Price Index (CPI) annual: actual = 3.4%, expected = 3.4%, previous = 3.5%;

→ Retail Sales monthly: actual = 0.0%, expected = 0.4%, previous = 0.6%.

Concerns about rising inflation did not materialise. Reuters reports that unchanged retail sales suggest conditions are forming for interest rate cuts.

Financial markets reacted significantly, with the US dollar weakening:

→ As we reported yesterday, signs of slowing inflation increased market participants' belief in imminent rate cuts, leading to the S&P 500 stock index (US SPX 500 mini on FXOpen) reaching an all-time high;

→ Gold prices reached a high not seen since April 21;

→ Other currencies strengthened against the US dollar.

An interesting situation is developing on the USD/JPY chart. Applying Fibonacci ratios, we note three instances where price recovery halted around the 0.382 level:

→ Recovery from B to C following the impulsive decline from A to B;

→ Recovery from D to E after the impulsive decline from C to D;

→ Recovery from F to G after the 3-wave decline from A to F.

Dollar Adjusts After the Publication of Inflation Data in the US
yen.png

Data on the Consumer Price Index (CPI) in the US, released yesterday, had a significant impact on the pricing of major currency pairs. According to the provided report:

  • The core Consumer Price Index, which excludes food and energy costs, increased by 0.3% from the previous month, while experts had forecasted 0.4%.
  • Retail sales remained unchanged at 0.0%, contrary to analysts' expectations of 0.4%.

As a result of the publication of such data, the dollar depreciated against almost all major currencies. For instance, the USD/JPY currency pair retreated from its peak at 156.60, the EUR/USD strengthened by more than 100 pips within a couple of hours, and buyers of the GBP/USD pair tested a significant resistance level at 1.2700.

The main reason for the sharp decline of the dollar against G-10 currencies is likely due to the possibility that slowing inflation growth and a weak labour market could prompt the Federal Reserve to change its monetary policy direction and reduce the base interest rate in the coming months.

USD/JPY

According to technical analysis of the USD/JPY pair on the daily timeframe, a "bearish engulfing" pattern has formed, the confirmation of which could contribute to a retest of the important area between 152.80-152.00. If dollar buyers manage to establish themselves above 154.90, the price may resume its upward movement towards recent highs around 156.00.

Macro-economic data that could influence the pricing of the pair in the upcoming trading sessions:

  • Today at 15:30 (GMT +3:00), the number of initial jobless claims in the US.
  • Today at 15:30 (GMT +3:00), the Philadelphia Fed Manufacturing Index (US).

Bitcoin Price Hits a Month's High, Breaking Key Resistance
btc1.png

Yesterday's release of CPI figures suggests that inflation is slowing down and a rate cut could be on the horizon. This weakened the dollar and boosted the value of assets priced in dollars, including BTC/USD.

As a result, the price of Bitcoin hit a May high.

Meanwhile, there is sustained demand in the market driven by institutional participants investing in Bitcoin ETFs. According to media reports citing 13F filings:
→ JP Morgan invested $731,246 USD
→ Wells Fargo invested $141,817 USD in Grayscale's GBTC.
→ Similar activity is observed with other traditional banks like BNP Paribas and BNY Mellon, indicating a broader industry trend.

audusd1705.jpg
On the hourly chart of AUD/USD at FXOpen, the pair formed a base above 0.6585. The Aussie Dollar started a decent increase above the 0.6630 resistance against the US Dollar, as mentioned in the previous analysis.

The bulls pushed the pair above the 0.6655 resistance zone. There was a close above the 0.6685 resistance and the 50-hour simple moving average. Finally, the pair tested the 0.6715 zone. A high was formed at 0.6714 before the pair corrected gains.

It tested the 0.6655 zone and is currently consolidating gains. There was a fresh increase above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the 0.6714 swing high to the 0.6654 low.

On the upside, the AUD/USD chart indicates that the pair is now facing resistance near the 50% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the 0.6714 swing high to the 0.6654 low at 0.6685. The first major resistance might be 0.6715.

An upside break above the 0.6715 resistance might send the pair further higher. The next major resistance is near the 0.6750 level. Any more gains could clear the path for a move toward the 0.6800 resistance zone.

If not, the pair might correct lower. Immediate support is near a major bullish trend line at 0.6670. The next support could be 0.6655. If there is a downside break below the 0.6655 support, the pair could extend its decline toward the 0.6630 zone. Any more losses might signal a move toward 0.6585.

The Share Price of Alibaba (BABA) Has Reached Its Yearly High
ali.jpg

On 14 May, Alibaba released its first-quarter performance report:
→ Earnings per share: actual = $1.404, expected = $1.421;
→ Gross income: actual = $30.716 billion, expected = $30.502 billion.

The fact that earnings per share were slightly below expectations did not disappoint investors much, as on 16 May, Alibaba's share price (BABA) reached a yearly high, exceeding $86, forming a wide bullish candlestick with a close near the top (a sign of strong demand).

Positive sentiments were also driven by:
→ Another Chinese company, JD.com, released a report that exceeded expectations;
→ US regulators published information that well-known investor Michael Burry invested in Alibaba shares. David Tepper, head of the hedge fund Appaloosa Management, also holds a bullish outlook;
→ According to a note published on X (Twitter) by Citron Research analysts, Alibaba's share price could rise to $100.

The Price of Silver Has Reached Its Highest Level in Over Three Years
silver.jpg

As indicated by the XAG/USD chart today, the intraday price of silver reached $29.84 per ounce yesterday, while the previous yearly high on 12 April was $29.79. The last time this price was seen was in February 2021.

It is worth noting that today the price of silver is behaving more bullishly than the price of gold, which is approximately 1.5% below its April high.

The main factor contributing to the rise in the price of silver is likely the weakening of the US dollar, as traders expect the Federal Reserve to ease monetary policy.

Can the price of silver continue to rise? Analysts are generally bullish. As CNBC reports:
→ Saxo Bank strategists recently stated in an analytical review that the price of silver could rise to $30, while gold could soon test the $2,400 level.
→ Analysts at ROTH Capital Partners forecast that the prices of gold and silver will rise even higher in the coming months. According to JC O'Hara, Chief Market Technician, if the price breaks the $30 level, "there will be few resistance levels until the $35/$37 range."

Let’s provide more data for a technical analysis of the silver market.

Coinbase (COIN) Stock Price Holds at Key Support Level
UNpV8Uo.jpeg

On Thursday, stock market traders were concerned about the sharp drop in Coinbase shares, listed on the Nasdaq, which fell by 9%. This was triggered by rumours that the Chicago-based CME Group is planning to launch cryptocurrency trading, posing a challenge to Coinbase, currently the leading cryptocurrency exchange in the US.

It is worth noting that CME already trades Bitcoin futures (since December 2017) and Ethereum futures (since February 2021). Is it possible for CME to launch spot cryptocurrency trading?

On one hand, interest in the cryptocurrency market has surged in 2024, with Bitcoin’s price up approximately 58% year-to-date, and around 146% over the past 12 months.

On the other hand, CME Group, as the world’s largest operator of exchange-traded derivatives, is considered a fundamental part of the US financial system. The SEC is unlikely to be favourable towards initiating cryptocurrency trading there, given their reputation for high risk.

Nevertheless, the sharp decline in Coinbase shares on Thursday did not continue into Friday.

Commodity Currencies Retreat from Local Highs
n4SHAhu.jpeg

Despite the cooling labour market in the US and declining inflation, the American currency continues to move towards new highs. For instance, the USD/JPY currency pair might update the current month's high at 156.70, the NZD/USD sharply declines after retesting 0.6140, and buyers of the USD/CAD pair have confidently secured a position above 1.3600.

USD/CAD

The corrective pullback in the USD/CAD pair ended just below 1.3600. According to technical analysis, on May 16th, a bullish "piercing line" pattern formed on the daily timeframe for USD/CAD. The completion of this pattern could lead to a retest of the key range 1.3690-1.3660. If the price remains above these levels in the coming weeks, the pair’s rise could resume towards 1.3850-1.3820. A drop below 1.3600 could contribute to a more extensive downward correction towards 1.3530-1.3470. Important indicators that may affect USD/CAD pricing in the coming trading sessions:

  • Today at 15:30 (GMT +3:00) - Canada’s Core Consumer Price Index (CPI) for April
  • Tomorrow at 17:00 (GMT +3:00) - US Existing Home Sales

Tech Stocks Back in Vogue as Nasdaq 100 Rallies to Record High
grbJjbe.png

The tech-heavy Nasdaq 100 index (US Tech 100 mini on FXOpen’s TickTrader platform) reached a new all-time high on Monday, closing the trading session at 18,684.2 according to FXOpen pricing, fueled by renewed investor enthusiasm for technology stocks.

This remarkable feat underscores the resurgence of the tech sector, which has been buoyed by speculation surrounding two key factors: the highly anticipated earnings report from semiconductor giant NVIDIA and the possibility of interest rate cuts by the Federal Reserve.

NVIDIA's Earnings Anticipation

NVIDIA, a leading player in the rapidly growing artificial intelligence (AI) market, is set to release its earnings report on Wednesday. Investors are eagerly awaiting this announcement, with expectations running high for another quarter of impressive financial performance.

The company's cutting-edge chips are in high demand for AI applications, positioning it as a frontrunner in this transformative technology.

The anticipation surrounding NVIDIA's earnings has ignited a frenzy in the tech sector, driving up share prices and contributing to the US Tech 100 mini's record-breaking performance. Investors are betting on NVIDIA's continued dominance in the AI space, which could further propel the stock and the broader tech market.

Gold Price Reaches Historic High
Zw8oNIN.png

According to confirmed information, Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi, considered a potential successor to the country's supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, died in a helicopter crash in a mountainous area near the border with Azerbaijan. The helicopter also carried Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian and other officials, all of whom perished.

As news of the helicopter search in the inaccessible mountainous region spread, the price of gold rose significantly. Yahoo Finance reports that the gold rally was driven by uncertainty about the situation in Iran.

The XAU/USD chart indicates that yesterday, at the peak of the day, the price of gold reached $2450, an all-time high. Can the rally continue?

GBP/USD Rate Surges to Two-Month High After Inflation News
Uh7yurK.png

Today, the Consumer Price Index (CPI) figures for the UK were published. According to ForexFactory:

→ Annual CPI: actual = 2.3%; expected = 2.1%; previous = 3.2%.

→ Annual Core CPI: actual = 3.9%; expected = 3.6%; previous = 4.2%.

Thus, it can be asserted that:

→ The current inflation level is at its lowest since 2021.

→ It is close to the target levels of 2%.

However, economists polled by Reuters had expected a sharper drop to 2.1%, based on falling energy prices.

Additionally, inflation in the services sector (a key indicator monitored by the Bank of England due to the dominance of this sector in the UK economy) only slightly decreased to 5.9% from 6%.

As a result, CNBC reports that market participants have reduced the likelihood of the Bank of England easing monetary policy:

→ The probability of a rate cut in June has decreased to 15% compared to 50% before the inflation news was published.

→ The probability of a rate cut in August was estimated at 40% compared to 70% before the publication.

The currency market reacted with a surge in volatility – the GBP/USD rate jumped to a two-month high, reaching the 1.27555 level. However, as the market absorbed the data, the price began to gradually decline.

After Earnings Report, NVDA Stock Price Exceeds $1,000
JiKWRCu.png

For the first time in history, Nvidia's stock price has reached a four-digit number, and its market capitalisation has surpassed $2.5 trillion, ranking third globally after Microsoft and Apple. This surge is due to a strong earnings report, driven by high demand for AI chips:

→ Earnings per share: actual = $6.12, expected = $5.60;
→ Gross revenue: actual = $26.04 billion, expected = $24.59 billion.

Additionally, Nvidia announced a 10-for-1 stock split to make shares more accessible and attract new investors, which should support NVDA stock in the future.

While yesterday's main trading session closed around $950 per share, the price rose by approximately 6% in after-hours trading. Thus, NVDA's stock price has increased by over 100% since the beginning of the year. Can the rally continue?

On March 28, in the article "Stock Market Analysis: NVDA Losing Leadership?", we:
→ Noted signs of weakness relative to the S&P 500 index;
→ Constructed an ascending blue channel;
→ Suggested a potential pullback to the $800 level.
