Analysis of NZD/USD: The "kiwi" sharply fell after the central bank's decision
WUxSGpZ.jpeg

The Reserve Bank of New Zealand (RBNZ) kept the interest rate unchanged at 5.5% on Wednesday.

The decision to maintain the interest rate was anticipated. However, market participants noted a shift in the tone of the RBNZ's official statements. In May, the bank indicated that the tight policy would continue as long as necessary, but now it is open to easing the restrictive monetary policy if inflation slows down.

As a result, market participants are now considering the possibility of a nearer-term rate cut, which led to a decline in the New Zealand dollar relative to other currencies.

Specifically, against the US dollar, the "kiwi" fell by approximately 0.75%.

Will the decline continue as the situation develops?

Analysts Raise NVDA Forecasts, Stock Price Rises
Ab1TXMa.png

According to FactSet, in July, seven reputable analysts have raised their target prices for NVDA stock. KeyBanc analyst John Vinh, for instance, increased his target from $130 to $180 (approximately 33% above the current price).

Following these target increases, Nvidia's stock has risen, closing above the psychological level of $130 yesterday for the first time since June 20. Consequently, NVDA's price has increased by more than 160% since the start of the year.

Will Nvidia's rally continue?

The NVDA chart data raises doubts about the stock's ability to confidently set new historical highs as it did in the first half of the year.

Markets Awaiting US Inflation Data: What is the Probability of Trend Reversals?
Bpob1HW.png

The major currency pairs are in a holding pattern following the release of the latest US labour market data and Jerome Powell's testimony before Congress. The Fed Chair noted that the Federal Reserve has made "significant progress" in its mission to combat inflation, but emphasized the need for "more good data" before lowering interest rates. Judging by the movements of the major currency pairs, the market appears sceptical of the Fed Chair's statements:

  • The AUD/USD pair has refreshed the May highs of the current year and strengthened above 0.6700.
  • The USD/CAD pair is trading near strategic support at 1.3610.
  • The GBP/USD pair is approaching the March highs near 1.2900.

As we can see, the US dollar is slowly but surely losing ground in many directions, but by the end of the week, existing trends could either slow down or change direction dramatically.

GBP/USD Hits Four-Month High Following GDP Growth News
jnUQGAf.png

day, the UK Office for National Statistics published data showing an increase in GDP.

According to Forex Factory:

→ A month ago, GDP was at 0.0% month-on-month;

→ This month, analysts had forecasted growth of 0.2%;

→ Actual growth reached 0.4%.

This news should be welcomed by the Labour Party, which has come into power with ambitious plans for economic development.

On the other hand, how will the Bank of England respond? The GDP growth might provide an argument for maintaining high interest rates for a longer period to ensure that fears of a new inflationary surge do not materialise.

As Bloomberg reports, markets currently assess the likelihood of a rate cut at the next Bank of England meeting on 1 August at just under 50%.

Financial markets reacted with a rise in the sterling's value against other currencies. The GBP/USD rate is at its highest level since early March.
Will the Growth Continue?

The GBP/USD chart shows that the price is in a rally, having risen by 1.7% since the beginning of July.

PepsiCo Stock Rebounds from Yearly Low Ahead of Earnings Report
2kQm2OB.png

The PepsiCo stock chart indicates:

→ Yesterday, the price dropped below $161, setting a new low for 2024.

→ However, by the end of the trading day, the price rose above $163.3, closing near the day's high.

This bullish intraday behaviour might suggest positive sentiment emerging ahead of today's earnings report.

According to Dow Jones Newswires:

→ PepsiCo's management anticipates organic revenue growth of 4% and an 8% increase in earnings per share in 2024.

→ The consensus among analysts tracked by FactSet is a 3% rise in sales and a 7% increase in earnings.

PepsiCo's stock has fallen by 9% over the past two months. Investors are concerned that demand might suffer due to rising prices from inflation and the growing popularity of weight-loss drugs, which could curb people's cravings for snacks and sugary drinks.

The Nasdaq 100 Index Fell Despite Positive Inflation News
Ot31ruC.png

Yesterday, Consumer Price Index (CPI) values were published, indicating a slowdown in the rate of inflation in the USA. According to ForexFactory:

→ CPI month-on-month: actual = -0.1%, forecast = 0.1%, previous month = 0.0%;

→ CPI year-on-year: actual = 3.0%, forecast = 3.1%, previous month = 3.3%.

The data confirming the slowdown in inflation raised expectations that the Federal Reserve might lower interest rates as early as September. But why did the Nasdaq 100 (US Tech 100 mini on FXOpen) drop then? Yesterday, the tech stock index fell by over 2.1%, marking its worst day since early May.

The reason lies in rotation. Investors seem to have shifted their focus from the highly inflated tech stocks since the start of 2024 to other sectors. Approximately 400 companies in the S&P 500 index (US SPX 500 mini on FXOpen) showed growth. Meanwhile, the Dow Jones Industrial Average (Wall Street 30 mini on FXOpen) closed in the green yesterday.

Bloomberg reports that Kelly Cox from Ritholtz Wealth Management believes this day could be a turning point for the markets. It also serves as a good reminder of the importance of diversification.

One of the drivers of yesterday's decline was NVDA shares, which fell by more than 5% in a day (we wrote about the bearish behaviour of Nvidia’s price and volumes just the day before).

What’s next?

The equal-weighted version of the S&P 500, where stocks like Nvidia have the same weight as Dollar Tree Inc., rose yesterday. This version of the index is less sensitive to the influence of large tech companies, making a case for the rally expanding to other stocks.

Analysis of USD/JPY: Was There an Intervention?
cklYYSd.png

Yesterday’s news of slowing inflation in the US sharply weakened the dollar, anticipating the Federal Reserve’s monetary easing. In the first 15 minutes after the data release:

→ EUR/USD rose by approximately 0.45% to the psychological level of 1.09;

→ GBP/USD increased by approximately 0.55%, reaching a 2024 high.

Conversely, USD/JPY fell, with a more aggressive movement. As the chart shows, the dollar weakened against the yen by about 1.8% in the first 15 minutes after the release. This suggests that amidst the US news, the Bank of Japan intervened to support its currency, which hadn’t fallen below 160 yen per USD since June 26.

Reuters reports that Tokyo’s chief currency diplomat, Masato Kanda, stated on Friday that authorities would take necessary measures in the currency market but declined to comment on whether they had intervened.

The Nikkei Index Has Risen To a Two-Month High
gT7pMAY.png

As we reported on 26th June, analysing the Nikkei 225 chart (Japan 225 on FXOpen):

→ The price is in a significant upward trend (shown by the blue channel);

→ The price may continue to rise along the median line.

Since then, the Nikkei 225 index (Japan 225 on FXOpen) has increased by more than 6%, reaching a yearly high on 10th July above 42,500 points. The price particularly surged on 9-10 July, breaking resistance at 41,160 (formed from the previous peak at the end of March).

However, the bears made a strong comeback afterwards, pushing the price back to the 41,160 level. Thus:

→ Completely offsetting the gains from 9-10 July;

→ Forming a bearish engulfing pattern spanning 4 candles;

→ Prompting consideration that the breakout above 41,160 was false (a trap for bulls).

According to Reuters, bearish drivers included technology stocks such as Tokyo Electron, which saw a more than 6% decline in one day, following sell-offs in US technology stocks (as reported on 12th July).

Sentiment in the Japanese stock market is also influenced by risks of interventions by the Bank of Japan to support the yen.

Insiders Are Selling Shares of Large Companies
dGf7Aei.png

Yesterday, the S&P 500 stock index (US SPX 500 mini on FXOpen) set another historical high, closing near the 5650 level.

However, similar records are not observed on the charts of rally leaders from the first half of 2024 – NVDA's price is 8.6% below its historical high, MSFT is 3.1% lower, and GOOGL is 2.6% below its record.

And this isn't the only cause for concern. Insider sales, as indicated by reports to the SEC, could add to anxieties. For instance:

→ Bezos sold over $900 million worth of AMZN shares;

→ Nvidia board member Mark Stevens continues to sell NVDA shares, as does company CEO Jensen Huang.

According to Goldman Sachs, fund managers have increased their long positions in US stock index futures to record levels.

And according to a July survey of fund managers conducted by Bank Of America:

→ Market sentiment remains bullish amid expectations of a Fed rate cut and a soft landing for the economy;

→ Geopolitics now pose the biggest risk to markets, followed by inflation.

If professional market participants foresee further growth in the stock index, it might not be driven by shares of large companies.

On June 27, we discussed the bullish "cup and handle" pattern near the $190 level on the AMZN price chart. Since then, bulls have shown the ability to push the price towards the psychological level of $200, but they have not managed to sustain this success.

The EUR/USD Rate Set a 16-Week High
EPIjVqO.png

According to the EUR/USD chart, the euro to dollar exchange rate yesterday surpassed the peak from early June, rising above 1.092 – the last time the price was at this level was on March 21.

Bullish sentiments in the market were supported by:

→ Approaching Thursday's meeting of the European Central Bank – it is expected that interest rates will remain unchanged. However, attention will be focused on comments from its president Christine Lagarde regarding the timing of the next interest rate cut.

→ Expectations of rate cuts by the Federal Reserve in September. As Reuters reports, Powell stated yesterday that economic indicators in the US for the second quarter "to some extent bolster the confidence" that inflation is returning to the target level in a sustainable manner.

As we mentioned in our analytical review of the EUR/USD chart on July 1:

7SH3Isj.jpeg

On the hourly chart of AUD/USD at FXOpen, the pair formed a base above 0.6715. The Aussie Dollar started a decent recovery wave above the 0.6725 resistance against the US Dollar, as mentioned in the previous analysis.

The bulls pushed the pair above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the 0.6793 swing high to the 0.6714 low. However, the pair is still below the 50-hour simple moving average.

On the upside, the AUD/USD chart indicates that the pair is now facing resistance near the 0.6740 zone. There is also a major bearish trend line forming with resistance at 0.6740.

The Dollar Corrected After a Sharp Decline. Will the Uptrend Resume?
LZRfesB.jpeg

A sustained decline in the core consumer price index in the US contributed to a sharp pullback in the American currency. The GBP/USD currency pair is trading near the psychological level of 1.3000, EUR/USD buyers are attempting to hold above 1.0900, and USD/JPY has lost over 300 pips in just two days. However, after the release of positive retail sales data yesterday, the dollar managed to recover some of its losses. Let's consider whether it is possible for the USD to resume its upward trend and what factors might influence this.

GBP/USD
k9EPu0W.png

The British currency strengthened sharply after the Labour Party's victory in the recent parliamentary elections. The slow but steady economic growth and reduction in political uncertainty are playing into the hands of the British currency: the GBP/USD pair is preparing to test the year's highs at 1.3140-1.3100.

Technical analysis of GBP/USD indicates the possibility of continued growth, as a “bullish engulfing” pattern was formed on the weekly timeframe after breaking through the resistance at 1.2850. The primary target for the upward movement is the range of 1.3140-1.3100. If pound buyers manage to hold above these levels, a rise to the strategic levels of 1.3600-1.3500 is possible. In the case of a drop below 1.2900, a downward correction towards 1.2870-1.2850 is likely.

US Banks Set a Bullish Tone at the Start of Earnings Season
GUQzIrx.png

Company earnings reports for the second quarter will be a crucial driver of stock market movements in the coming weeks. Traditionally, the largest banks kick off the earnings season, and their performance indicators today are setting a bullish tone.

For example:

Bank of America (BAC), report published on 16th July:

→ Earnings per share: actual = $0.83, expected = $0.797;

→ Gross income: actual = $25.37 billion, expected = $25.22 billion;

Goldman Sachs (GS), report published on 15th July:

→ Earnings per share: actual = $8.62, expected = $8.35;

→ Gross income: actual = $12.73 billion, expected = $12.35 billion.

Other major banks, including JPMorgan Chase (JPM), Citigroup (C), and Wells Fargo (WFC), have also surpassed analysts' expectations. Although following different trajectories, the stock prices of all the listed banks have generally been rising after the publication of their earnings reports.

Notably, the formation on the XLF chart is interesting – this is the Financial Select Sector SPDR Fund ETF, which is focused on the financial sector and includes the shares of the largest US banks. You can trade this ETF with FXOpen, taking advantage of CFD instruments.

Analysis of XAU/USD: Gold Price Sets Historical Record
TbRVMGD.png

As the XAU/USD chart shows, on 16th July, the gold price rose above $2460 for the first time in history. The bullish sentiment is driven by:

→ Anticipation of Fed rate cuts, as the appeal of non-yielding bullion generally increases in low-interest-rate environments.

→ Geopolitical tensions, with an attempt on Trump's life possibly boosting demand for the "safe-haven asset."

→ Demand from central banks.

Reuters reports that analysts at Commonwealth Bank of Australia believe the gold price could exceed their forecast of $2500 per ounce by the end of 2024. "It is worth highlighting gold's ability to find support under any conditions this year," they say.

Can the gold price rise further?

Analytical ECB Rate Predictions for 2024, 2025 and Beyond
OZn01l9.jpeg

With the European Central Bank recently cutting interest rates for the first time since its hiking cycle began in 2022, many are wondering where the ECB’s policy rate may be headed next. This article provides an analysis of the projected ECB interest rates for 2024, 2025, and beyond, exploring the factors influencing these rates and offering insights into future economic conditions.

Current Eurozone Interest Rate Environment

As of June 2024, the European Central Bank (ECB) has recently cut its interest rates for the first time since 2016, lowering the deposit rate by 25 basis points to 3.75%. The ECB’s current interest rate on the main refinancing operations is 4.25%. This decision comes after a series of substantial rate hikes implemented between mid-2022 and September 2023, which were necessary to combat the peak inflation observed during that period.

Commodity Currencies in Stable Ranges: Should We Expect a Breakout?
j1Qknen.jpeg

The currency pairs AUD/USD and USD/CAD, unlike the pairs with the Euro, Yen, and Sterling, continue to demonstrate long-term stability. These pairs have been trading in narrow price corridors for several months. Given the weakening of the dollar in many directions, there is a high likelihood of increased volatility and a breakout from the flat channels in commodity currencies.

USD/CAD
XbunoBY.png

Last week, the USD/CAD pair sharply rebounded from the significant support at 1.3600, forming a bullish "hammer" pattern. Technical analysis of the pair suggests a potential resumption of the upward movement if the buyers manage to consolidate above 1.3700. It is worth noting that the price is testing this level for the second time this week. The inability of dollar bulls to overcome this resistance could push the price back to 1.3600-1.3580.

GBP/USD Exchange Rate Rises Above 1.3000 on Inflation News
OMgQjuO.png

As evidenced by the GBP/USD chart, yesterday the exchange rate rose above the psychological level of 1.3000 USD per pound for the first time in 12 months.

The strengthening of the British currency occurred after the release of inflation news. According to ForexFactory:

→ Year-on-year Consumer Price Index (CPI): actual = 2.0%, forecast = 1.9%, previous = 2.0%;

→ Year-on-year Core CPI: actual = 3.5%, forecast = 3.4%, previous = 3.5%.

Thus, analysts' expectations of a slowdown in inflation were not met, giving market participants a reason to believe that the Bank of England's tight policy would continue for a longer period, providing a bullish boost for the GBP.

However, in the second half of yesterday, the bears managed to “extinguish” all the progress from the bullish momentum. A bearish engulfing pattern formed on the chart (shown with an arrow).

Moreover, bearish activity intensified this morning after the release of labour market news. The number of jobless claims (Claimant Count Change) filed in the previous month was 32.3K, whereas analysts had expected 23.4K.

This has clouded expectations regarding the future policy of the Bank of England – whether it will keep rates at the current high level of 5.25%, or start to reduce them.

In any case, the pound exchange rate fell below the psychological level of 1.3000 today, raising the possibility of a false bullish breakout. What can the chart suggest about whether this scenario will actually play out?
