General analysis XAUUSD for 19.07.2022

Current dynamics

The XAUUSD continues to trade actively and resumes its downtrend towards the strong psychological support at 1700.00.

Gold corrected on Monday at 1723.82, the highest level that this traditional safe haven asset reached, but by late afternoon the instrument returned to its downtrend. This price movement can be easily explained by the weakening of the U.S. dollar, caused by a decline in traders enthusiasm for the recently expected interest rate hike of 100 basis points at once. Whether it will actually happen, or the rate will be raised by the previously announced 75 basis points, we will know at the end of July during the next meeting of the members of the Federal Reserve, which will be held on the 27th.

The Australian National Bank claimed it expects the downtrend in gold to continue, should it break the support at $1675.00, it will continue southward at 1600.00. According to Laffer, a former adviser to President Reagan, the current situation with unprecedentedly high inflation in this century is caused by excessive monetary stimulation of the economy during the pandemic coronavirus and the only way to correct this imbalance is in the further tightening of monetary policy and reduction of the money supply, which will continue to lead to the strengthening of the dollar and lowering of the XAUUSD quotes.

At the same time, the analyst Hemke thinks that the FRS will be forced to switch over to the dovish policy as some experts believe that the economy is formally entering into recession, the citizens savings are fading, and the increase in consumer prices under an expensive dollar negatively affects the citizens attitude towards the representatives of the Democratic Party, which positions are hardly strong at the moment, which is an unacceptable luxury for the acting President on the threshold of the elections.

Traders interested in dealing this dynamic pair in the near future should pay attention to the following macroeconomic news: The number of construction permits issued tomorrow, Secondary housing market sales (June) and US crude oil inventories the day after tomorrow.

The US dollar continued its bearish path and extended its losses significantly during trading on Tuesday, with lower expectations of investors that the US Federal Reserve will tighten its monetary policy more strongly during its meeting next week, in light of the sharp decline in gasoline prices during the past month, a development that officials are likely to welcome. The Fed is concerned that expectations of high inflation may become ingrained and complicates their task of curbing price increases.

In addition to the statements of the Fed members that came to confirm that they are committed to raising the interest rate by 75 basis points in the current July meeting to reduce bets about the Federal Reserve escalating the pace of raising interest rates.

Whereas, Lewis Waller and James Bollader, Fed members said that they are leaning toward a 75 basis point rate increase at the next meeting, rather than a move by 100 basis points, to mitigate the negative effects on the economy.

As data published by the US Census Bureau on Tuesday, building permits came in at 1.685 million, above expectations (1.65 million) in June, and housing starts in the United States (MoM) came in at 1.559 million, below expectations (1.585 million) in June, the rate increased Building permits changed to -0.6% in June from the previous -7%.

General analysis AUDUSD for 27.07.2022

Current dynamics

AUD/USD drops to 0.69450 ahead of major macroeconomic news on the pair

The pair AUD/USD, traditionally sensitive to the appetite for risk and dependent on it in direct relation, since the beginning of the trading week is in a downtrend, as a whole market is in an anxious condition, expecting the probable occurrence of economic recession. These concerns are dictated not only by steadily rising inflation and a consistent increase in the key rate of the U.S. Federal Reserve, but also negative forecasts about the prospects for economic growth in the whole world, including the Peoples Republic of China, heavily affected by prolonged restrictions caused by the epidemic situation around the pandemic of Covid-19. Another round of geopolitical tension in the world also affects the reduction of appetite for risk: the USA confronts China about its claims in the Taiwan issue, relations between Russia and European countries are complicated due to the news about a possible further reduction of gas supplies to the West. 

Negative statistics were released in the USA, showing a consecutive three-month decline in consumer confidence (95.7 vs. previous 98.4), new home sales in June (0.59 million vs. previous 0.64 million).

In Australia, experts predict the worst performance since 1990, probably in annual terms, it will reach 6.2%, which will inevitably provoke an increase in interest rates of the Reserve Bank of Australia.  The main reasons for such a surge in inflation in Australia is the energy and agricultural crisis, the global rise in prices for energy and food products.

The meeting of the Reserve Bank of Australia will be held on August 2, the main agenda is expected to raise the main interest rate to 1.35%. Experts believe that the most probable decision is to increase the rate by 50 basis points, at the same time the ceiling of its growth at the moment is forecasted at 3.35%, as the situation does not look inclined to stabilization and the cycle of tightening of the monetary policy, probably, will not end soon. The nearest step in the pairs development is for the U.S. Federal Reserve meeting, which is scheduled for July 27. Analysts expect the key rate to be raised by 75 basis points at once this time.

Support and resistance levels

Alligator is sleeping: the moving averages are twisted, the instrument is flat. The nearest fractal below the alligators teeth (red line) is at 0.69340. Awesome Oscillator (AO) and Accelerator Oscillator (AC) are in the gray area, showing a divergence, which is not a reliable signal to open a position.

✔️ Support levels: 0.69340, 0.69040, 0.68720.
✔️ Resistance levels: 0.70510, 0.70150, 0.69760.

Trading scenarios

✔️ Short positions should be opened at the 0.96800 with a target of 0.69040 and a stop loss at 0.69550. Implementation period: 1-2 days.
✔️ Long positions can be opened above the level of 0.69760 with a target of 0.70150 and a stop-loss at the level of 0.69550. Implementation period: 1-2 days.

Fundamental analysis of EUR/USD

EUR/USD started the week with a decline to $1.09750 amid disappointing German retail sales data and mixed Eurozone economic data. 

In terms of Eurozone data, Monday saw the release of July's harmonized consumer price index, which rose 5.5% year-on-year, as well as a flash GDP figure of 0.3% QoQ and 0.6% YoY. Despite a 1.6% y/y increase in German retail sales in June, the monthly figure fell to -0.8%. The ECB, raising interest rates, added 25 basis points to 4.25%, suggesting a pause in interest rate hikes in September as signs of weakening inflation and recession fears emerge. The media's interpretation of today's PMI, especially its sub-components - prices, employment and new orders - could affect market sentiment.

Fundamental analysis of XAU/USD

Gold is going through a volatile period marked by significant fluctuations and economic events that have affected its price and demand. XAU/USD is currently trading at 1949.50 after an upward correction. 

gold.thumb.png.e6aab1148b4ecd605b8f77efec5646a4.png

One of the main catalysts for the rise in gold prices was the unexpected downgrade of the US credit rating by Fitch Ratings from AAA to AA+. The move was attributed to concerns over the country's slowing financial growth and increasing government debt over the next three years. While the previous downgrade sent the market into turmoil, this time the initial reaction was relatively calm, but experts continue to monitor the situation. U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen disagreed with the decision, calling it "arbitrary," and this disagreement has raised concerns about the U.S. debt ceiling crisis. The downgrade led to a drop in confidence in the economy, prompting investors to rush to gold, considered a safe-haven asset. This has led to an increase in demand, reflecting gold's historical role as a preferred investment during periods of economic uncertainty and stress.

Fundamental analysis of USD/JPY

The USD/JPY pair is correcting after a slight decline and is trading at 143.340 as Japanese authorities took steps to defend the currency. This reaction is the result of cautious optimism in the markets and a weaker US dollar amid upcoming US economic data and changes in the dynamics of bond yields.  

20230803USDJPY.thumb.png.53d01e13727d1226a393f5694a89e059.png

The Bank of Japan expanded the ceiling on the allowed rate on 10-year Japanese government bonds from 0.5% to 1.0%. The move pushed JGB yields to their highest levels in a decade, and to control the volatility of the Japanese yen, the BOJ announced unscheduled purchases of 5- and 10-year bonds. Japanese Governor Hirokazu Matsuno expressed confidence in the BOJ's strategy and remained vigilant against currency fluctuations.

Fundamental analysis of XAU/USD

XAU/USD prices are trading in a narrow range at 1936.00 ahead of important macroeconomic data on the US economy.While the US dollar reached a four-week high and the yield on 10-year US Treasuries reached its highest level since November last year, XAU/USD is about to hit a three-week low. This situation makes gold more expensive for those who trade in other currencies and puts pressure on gold, which is fraught with the risk of breaking the support level of 1916.00.

Fundamental analysis of XAU/USD

XAU/USD is currently in swing territory, trading at 1937.00 as traders ponder the potential impact of U.S. labor market trends and upcoming inflation data on the direction of U.S. monetary policy. While a weaker dollar and lower bond yields have supported the precious metal, the way forward remains unclear. 

20230807XAUUSD.thumb.png.b0aee45934d7dedede08b82b08ec4338.png
 
Current market conditions have been driven primarily by slowing US job growth, which has weakened the dollar and bond yields, and contributed to gold's rally last Friday. The U.S. jobs report for July showed slower than expected job growth, indicating that the labor market may be stabilizing. This suggested that the recent Fed rate hike could be the last in an ongoing tightening cycle. However, strong wage growth and a declining unemployment rate suggest that the labor market remains tight, providing an opportunity to assess the Fed's future interest rate decisions. In light of these mixed signals from the labor market, attention now turns to the upcoming consumer price index (CPI) data due on Wednesday. This data will be key in determining whether further rate hikes are needed to curb inflation. If interest rates rise, gold, traditionally a hedge against inflation, could lose its appeal.

Fundamental analysis of WTI

WTI crude oil price is hovering at 82.35, pointing to concerns about a drop in Chinese oil demand following news on trade and inflation, as China is the largest oil consumer. These concerns were heightened when China's crude oil imports fell 18.8% in July. However, there is a positive side to the U.S. Energy Information Administration's monthly report. With GDP growth forecast for 2023 rising from 1.5% to 1.9% and crude oil prices rising since June, largely due to a prolonged voluntary production cut in Saudi Arabia and rising global demand, this is an optimistic sign. This optimism is also supported by Saudi Arabia's recent announcement to extend its voluntary oil production cuts and Russia's plan to cut oil exports in September.

Fundamental analysis of GBP/USD

Fundamental analysis of XAU/USD

Gold prices rose, recovering from their lowest levels since late June, amid rising expectations of the minutes of the US Federal Reserve's monetary policy meeting. This rally in gold prices was supported by the emergence of cautious optimism in the market. The main contributing factors are expectations of further stimulus packages from China and the likelihood that the Fed will end the tightening cycle based on recent conflicting US data indicators. In addition, the recent passivity of major central banks appears to signal the end of the rate hike cycle. These moves have created a safety net for XAU/USD, especially given China's willingness to continue stimulus and India's economic measures. Despite this, the day before, gold prices were dragged to multi-day lows by strong US retail sales, data from China and US Treasury yields. The XAU/USD pair is also under pressure due to weakness in risk assets such as stocks, bonds and other commodities.

Fundamental analysis of GBP/USD

Against the backdrop of a busy economic calendar, the GBP/USD pair is showing notable fluctuations. UK retail sales data for July showed a stronger-than-expected decline of 1.2%. On a year-on-year basis, retail sales fell 3.2%, contrasting with June's 1.6% decline, with core retail sales reflecting a similar downward trend. A number of factors, including rainy weather, higher cost of living and rising food prices, contributed to these low sales numbers. Lower retail sales may reduce the need for the Bank of England to tightly manage inflation. Rising interest rates and the current inflationary environment have led to lower consumer spending, which may ease demand-driven inflationary pressures. The UK Consumer Price Index (CPI) fell 0.4% for the month, ahead of market expectations. The core CPI, which excludes volatile components such as oil and food, presents a worrying picture of lingering inflation in the UK, which could prompt the Bank of England to raise rates further.

Fundamental analysis of EUR/USD


The EUR/USD pair started the new week confidently, reaching the level of 1.09200, creating prerequisites for optimism in the European currency markets. 
ECB Chief Economist Philip Lane recently stated that the Eurozone can avoid a prolonged recession. This sentiment has led to a rise in the single currency, especially as the German yield curve begins to tighten, suggesting that the ECB may adjust its policy. At the same time, the weakening of the US dollar provided support to the EUR/USD pair. The US Dollar Index fell to 103.130, but the resilience of the US economy suggests the possibility of a rate hike before the end of the year, which could offset the sharp fall in the US Dollar.

Fundamental analysis of XAU/USD

After stabilizing around the key level of 1900.00, gold prices rebounded slightly to trade at 1903.50. This shift was driven by a decline in the US Dollar Index from a two-month high and a temporary slowdown in US Treasury yields, which recently hit a 16-year high. This allowed for some recovery to take place.

Fundamental analysis of EUR/USD

On Thursday, EUR/USD resumed its uptrend for the second day in a row, trading near 1.08620. Much of Wednesday's gains were driven by weak US PMI data. Economic data from the eurozone was worrisome as the PMI for August fell to 47.0, below the forecast of 48.5. In eurozone leader Germany, the core PMI also fell to 44.7, well below market expectations of 48.3. Meanwhile, France's private sector contracted in the third quarter. In particular, confidence in the French economy fell sharply and there was considerable pessimism in the manufacturing sector.

Fundamental analysis of EUR/USD

The EUR/USD pair continues to decline, trading at 1.07730. This behavior of the pair was influenced by such factors as the expectation of Fed Chairman Powell's speech and disappointing US economic indicators.

On Friday, data on the German economy takes center stage, focusing on the country's GDP and business climate index. After disappointing PMI data for August, market participants are preparing for potentially gloomier news. Germany's economy is forecast to contract by 0.2% year-on-year in the second quarter and remain flat in the next quarter. Notably, a quarterly contraction could have a significant impact on the market, which would also make the European Central Bank cautious. The business climate index is forecast to fall to 86.7 from a previous reading of 87.3, although this data could be overshadowed by GDP figures. While the focus remains on the state of the German economy, investors will be keeping a close eye on ECB statements, particularly the speech by its president Christine Lagarde, which is scheduled for today. Recent poor PMI results in the eurozone have cooled expectations for an ECB rate hike in September. Any hawkish remarks could revive buying interest.

Fundamental analysis of XAU/USD

Gold prices started the week trading flat at 1916.00.Factors such as low Treasury yields and US dollar strength, despite hawkish comments from Fed Chairman Jerome Powell on interest rates during the year at a conference in Jackson Hole, contributed to gold's resilience. In his comments, Powell pointed to the strength of the US economy and raised the possibility of a rate hike amid growing concerns about inflation. However, the market reaction was somewhat subdued, suggesting that his views were in line with traders' expectations. Given the current rate of inflation and the continued strength of the US economy, a rate hike could come as early as November. Loretta Mester of the FRB Cleveland supported this view, saying that an interest rate hike after a period of relative equilibrium is possible.
