EUR is declining ahead of the Eurogroup meeting

Today’s EURUSD forecast appears pessimistic as the news landscape may confirm the technical analysis conclusion about the pair’s decline.

The Eurogroup meeting and a speech by ECB representative Philip R. Lane are scheduled for Wednesday. They might provide insights into the future trajectory of the eurozone’s monetary policy.

The US will release data, including May 2024 new home sales, building permits, and crude oil stocks.

If these indicators exceed forecasts and previous readings, they may collectively support the US dollar, which will be considered in today’s EURUSD forecast.

By the end of the business day, the US will publish the results of bank stress tests the Federal Reserve conducted on 34 of the largest US banks to evaluate their ability to increase dividends and buy back shares. Although such tests are rare, their results may affect the US dollar by contributing to its strengthening or weakening, which will cause increased volatility in the market.

EURUSD technical analysis

On the H4 chart, EURUSD is currently in a consolidation phase around the 1.0717 level without any clear trend. With an upward breakout of the range, a correction might continue to 1.0760. After reaching this level, the price could decline to 1.0680. Subsequently, another corrective structure might develop, aiming for 1.0770 as the main target for correction. Once the correction is complete, a new decline wave is expected to start, targeting 1.0680, a crucial level for the EURUSD forecast for 26 June 2024. A breakout of this level will open the potential for a decline to 1.0610, possibly continuing to 1.0570, the estimated local target.

The Elliott Wave structure and a wave matrix with a pivot point at 1.0680 technically confirm this scenario. This level is considered crucial for a downward wave in the EURUSD rate. The market has breached the Envelope’s centre and is consolidating below the 1.0717 level. The wave could decline to its lower boundary today.

JPY falling due to fundamental discrepancies in Fed and BoJ policies

The USDJPY rate declined on Thursday, 27 June 2024, unable to hold at the 38-year high of 160.85 reached on Wednesday.

The Japanese authorities expressed concerns about the sharp decline in the yen. The country’s major financial policymaker, Masato Kanda, said they were closely watching the situation and were ready to act. Renowned currency analyst Masafumi Yamamoto warns that the USDJPY rate may rise to 162.00 if the Japanese authorities do not take prompt action to support the national currency.

However, traders are unsure whether the Japanese authorities’ verbal or actual actions can halt the yen’s decline. The yen’s weakness is attributed to investor uncertainty about the pace of Fed interest rate cuts. The opinion is that if the BoJ slightly adjusts its zero-rate policy at the 30-31 July meeting, this will unlikely significantly impact the yen rate.

USDJPY technical analysis

On the USDJPY H4 chart, the market received support at 160.00. Today, 27 June 2024, a rise to 161.30 is possible, followed by a correction to 160.00 (testing from above). Subsequently, the price could rise to 162.00, potentially continuing the uptrend to 163.30. Once this wave is complete, a decline might start, aiming for 158.90 as the first target.

27062024-usdjpy.thumb.png.04d9f46256c6765ea77078146ee40589.png

The Elliott Wave structure and a wave matrix with a 158.90 pivot point technically confirm this USDJPY scenario. The market has received support at the Envelope’s central line and continues growth to its upper boundary. A decline wave is expected from the 161.30 level to the Envelope’s centre at 160.00. Subsequently, a consolidation range could form around this level. With an upward breakout, the growth wave might expand to 163.30. A decline wave aiming for the Envelope’s lower boundary is expected only after the price reaches this level.

NZDUSD declines again: the primary reason is the strong US dollar

The NZDUSD pair is falling, facing strong pressure from the US dollar and reaching mid-May lows.

The New Zealand dollar-to-US dollar rate continues to decline with regular intervals for consolidation, but the overall trend is steady and quick. The NZDUSD pair is falling to 0.6059.

The current values are the lowest since mid-May.

The market is preparing for the evening’s US releases. In particular, it is interested in core PCE data, one of the most significant inflation reports for the Federal Reserve. The figures may provide insight into the Fed’s future actions on interest rates, which is currently offering strong support for the USD. As for news from New Zealand, it remains relatively neutral. The Reserve Bank of New Zealand’s stance remains unchanged: it will maintain a stable monetary policy at least until mid-2025 due to ongoing inflation growth risks.

However, investors believe that the RBNZ will lower interest rates in November.

Although the NZD rate declined by 1.2% in June, the Kiwi dollar gained 1.5% over the quarter.

NZDUSD technical analysis

On the H4 chart, NZDUSD has completed the first decline wave towards 0.6068 and corrected to 0.6108. Subsequently, the price is expected to fall to the local target of 0.6038. A consolidation range might form around 0.6073, a crucial level for the NZDUSD forecast for 28 June 2024. A downward breakout of this level will open the potential for a decline in the NZDUSD quotes to 0.6038, potentially continuing to 0.5995, the estimated target.

28062024-nzdusd.thumb.png.4730777c6dfa85128d19fa1fb647d491.png

The Elliott Wave structure and a wave matrix with a pivot point at 0.6070 technically confirm this scenario. The market has reached the first target of the decline wave near the Envelope’s lower boundary at 0.6068 and then undergone a correction towards its centre at 0.6108. Today, the market is under pressure to fall to 0.6038. If this level breaks, the price might decline to the Envelope’s lower boundary at 0.5995.

EUR has risen: all eyes on French policy

The EURUSD pair partially recovered its previous decline on Monday. The far-right party was not strong enough in the first round of the French election, which was positive for the market.

EURUSD starts the week rising. The EURUSD pair increased to 1.0753 and returned to levels seen on 13 May.

Investors are now primarily focused on data from the first round of the French snap election. Although the far-right was again winning, it did not appear as strong as before, favouring observers and boosting the EUR rate.

Marine Le Pen’s far-right National Rally (RN) won the first round of the parliamentary election on Sunday. However, the party secured fewer votes than expected.

The euro has declined since France’s President Emmanuel Macron called snap elections.

EURUSD technical analysis

On the H4 chart, EURUSD is currently in a consolidation phase around the 1.0714 level. This level is considered crucial for the current decline wave in the EURUSD pair. Today, 1 July 2024, a corrective phase is expected, targeting 1.0760. Subsequently, a decline wave might start, aiming for 1.0600 and potentially continuing to the local target of 1.0573. The Elliott Wave structure with the centre at 1.0714 technically confirms this scenario.

01072024-eurusd.thumb.png.142faf88937caa94043afaf693d00766.png

From the fundamental analysis perspective, the EURUSD pair is supported. Upcoming economic reports will be crucial for determining short-term movements in the EURUSD rate. Technical indicators point to a further decline to the 1.0600 and 1.0573 targets.

AUDUSD is falling: the market does not believe in interest rate hikes

The Australian dollar is declining for the second consecutive day. The AUDUSD pair is returning to fluctuations within the traded range.

The AUDUSD pair declines to 0.6638 on Tuesday, retreating from a two-week high despite the recent hints from the Reserve Bank of Australia about a potential interest rate increase.

According to the RBA’s June meeting minutes, monetary policymakers prefer to remain vigilant about inflation risks. They believe that significant price rises may necessitate a noticeable rate hike. However, the RBA is confident it can bring inflation down to the 2% target while maintaining economic and employment stability.

Investors estimate a one-in-three chance of an RBA interest rate hike at its August meeting.

On a global level, the Aussie is under pressure from the US dollar due to increased treasury bond yields.

AUDUSD technical analysis

On the H4 chart, the AUDUSD pair has formed a consolidation range above 0.6630 and, after breaking above it, extended the range to 0.6677. Subsequently, the quotes returned to the 0.6633 level, crucial for the AUDUSD forecast for 2 July 2024. A downward breakout will open the potential for a decline in the AUDUSD rate to 0.6555, representing the estimated target.

The yen is deteriorating: JPY continues to depreciate

The USDJPY pair is hitting 37-year highs, with the Bank of Japan’s inaction working against the yen.

The Japanese yen is suffering considerably from this depreciation. Following financial interventions in May by the Japanese government and regulator, the yen stabilised for some time. However, it started weakening on 6 May, and the USDJPY pair has continuously risen since then.

The primary reason for the yen’s weakness is the significant difference in monetary approaches and interest rates between the Bank of Japan and the US Federal Reserve. The BoJ interest rate remains at zero. The Bank of Japan’s inaction on the interest rate issue and the lack of a plan to normalise monetary policy exert pressure on the JPY. At the same time, the market speculates that the BoJ may raise the rate or give respective instructions at its meeting in late July.

The weak yen negatively impacts household consumption, increasing import costs and heightening inflationary pressure.

USDJPY technical analysis

On the USDJPY H4 chart, a support level formed at 161.00, with the wave continuing to develop towards 161.85. Today, 3 July 2024, the price might reach this level and correct to 161.00 (testing from above). Subsequently, the quotes could rise to 163.30, representing the main target of this growth wave.

03072024-usdjpy.thumb.png.44d863d4122cb7e5ee0d13233e3bb56f.png

The yen’s depreciation remains the main scenario. The USDJPY technical analysis suggests the growth wave extension to the 163.30 level, followed by a decline to the 158.90 and 157.40 targets.

EURUSD has risen significantly, and statistics have nothing to do with it

Risk appetite is pushing up the EURUSD pair. US statistics came out mixed, providing no clear signals.

The EURUSD pair has risen markedly over the last two sessions and stabilised at 1.0785 on Thursday.

Yesterday, the market had a plethora of macro statistics to consider, which have been factored into prices overall. The first signals about the state of the employment market have been received and analysed: the ADP number of jobs in the US private sector increased by 150,000 in June compared to the forecasted 163,000 and the previous 152,000, providing a neutral signal. Let us see what Friday’s NFP release will bring.

The services PMI appears uneven. The official PMI report showed a decrease to 48.8 points in June from 53.8 points in May, a warning signal. At the same time, Markit observations reflected an increase to 55.3 in June from the previous 54.8. Readings over 50.0 points indicate improvement and expansion.

EURUSD technical analysis

On the H4 chart, EURUSD has corrected to 1.0815. Today, 4 July 2024, a consolidation range could form below this level. With a downward breakout of the range, a new decline wave might start, aiming for 1.0730, a crucial level for this wave. Once the price reaches this level, it could correct to 1.0777 (testing from below). Subsequently, the decline structure might develop, targeting 1.0677 and potentially continuing to 1.0630.

Risk appetite supports the EUR position. Technical indicators for today’s EURUSD forecast point to a further decline to the 1.0680, 1.0600, and 1.0555 targets.

NZD has reached new weekly highs, driven by the weak US dollar

The NZDUSD pair has risen for the fourth consecutive day, driven by the US dollar's weakness.

The NZDUSD pair rises for the fourth consecutive day, reaching 0.6116.

The New Zealand dollar gains ground due to the US dollar's weakness. The USD previously declined after the release of the ADP employment data in the US private sector and amid decreasing business activity in the services sector. These factors strengthened the market view that the Federal Reserve will reduce borrowing costs by the end of 2024. The US dollar fell, giving other currencies a chance to rise.

At its previous meeting, the Federal Reserve noted an inflation shift in the right direction but believed prices were not moving fast enough to revise interest rates.

Some Federal Reserve monetary policymakers stress the importance of being patient and consistent when making interest rate decisions. Others believe that it is time to raise rates as inflation is rising.

NZDUSD technical analysis

On the H4 chart, NZDUSD has corrected towards 0.6128. The market is forming a consolidation range around 0.6115, which could extend up to 0.6134 today, 5 July 2024. Once the price reaches this level, a new decline wave is expected to start, aiming for 0.6090. Breaking above this level will open the potential for a decline to 0.6040, potentially continuing to 0.6023, the estimated target.

EURUSD remains elevated but is not too high

The EURUSD pair continues its ascent. However, the euro faces risks due to the French political situation.

The EURUSD pair appears relatively expensive, hovering at 1.0828 on Monday.

Although US nonfarm payrolls increased by 206,000 in June, exceeding expectations of 191,000, the data fell short of May readings. The unemployment rate remained unchanged at 7.4%. As expected, average hourly earnings in June expanded by 0.3% m/m following a 0.4% increase in May.

The market viewed the statistical data as soft, heightening expectations of a September US Federal Reserve interest rate cut, which pressured the USD position.

However, the euro also has reservations. The French election results created uncertainty about the country’s financial prospects. The left-wing alliance may have received an unexpected number of votes, creating challenging conditions for forming the French parliament.

EURUSD technical analysis

On the H4 chart, EURUSD received support at 1.0806. A consolidation range has practically formed around this level, which is considered crucial for the EURUSD pair today, 8 July 2024. Breaking above the range will open the potential for a growth wave to the local target of 1.0900. After reaching this target, the price is expected to fall to 1.0840 (testing from above). Subsequently, another growth structure could develop, aiming for 1.0944

Gold (XAUUSD) prices rise ahead of the Federal Reserve chair’s speech

Gold prices are rising on Tuesday, 9 July 2024, partially recouping Monday’s losses. The 2,350 level serves as strong support.

Today, investors are focused on the upcoming report by Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell in the US Congress. Last week’s economic data showed weakness in the US employment market, with the unemployment rate reaching the highest level in the past 2.5 years and wage growth slowing to a three-year low. These indicators have significantly increased expectations of an imminent Federal Reserve interest rate cut.

Markets currently estimate the likelihood of a September interest rate reduction at 77%, with another cut following in December. Powell’s speeches to the Senate on Tuesday and the House of Representatives on Wednesday will likely provide investors with insights into the Federal Reserve’s further actions. Additionally, crucial inflation data is due Thursday, which may impact markets. Any hint of rising rate cut expectations may boost gold prices again.

XAUUSD technical analysis

The price of gold remains above the upper boundary of a triangle pattern, with the target for the pattern completion at 2,450 USD. The XAUUSD forecast for today, 9 July 2024, suggests bullish momentum to 2,393. A rebound from the support level will provide an additional signal for a price rise. It is worth noting that the previous testing of this line pushed the price up by over 3%. A price decline below the 2,340 level can invalidate the bullish scenario. Such movement will indicate a breakout below the lower boundary of the ascending channel, followed by a further fall to 2,315.

Gold prices are climbing, driven by the prospect of a Federal Reserve interest rate cut and reinforced by the weak US employment market data. The XAUUSD technical analysis points to bullish momentum, with the first target at 2,393.

EURUSD: Nagel’s and Powell’s speeches may give hope for the euro’s strengthening

The EURUSD pair continues strengthening ahead of officials’ speeches and amid the rising US national debt.

Wednesday, 10 July 2024, is rich in speeches from the central bank and Fed’s chiefs and officials. A speech by the president of the Deutsche Bundesbank (concurrently a member of the ECB Governing Council) may shed light on the future EU monetary policy and help strengthen the euro against the US dollar. A subsequent speech by Deutsche Bundesbank official Sabine Mauderer may bolster the words of the Deutsche Bundesbank president.

Comments from the Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell are due after the US trading session opens, potentially adding to the market volatility and providing insight into the future of US interest rates. The increasing US national debt also works against the US dollar.

Although any market movements can be expected in this environment, the general situation does not favour the US currency at this stage. The euro is more likely to strengthen than the US dollar.

EURUSD technical analysis

On the EURUSD H4 chart, a consolidation range continues to develop above 1.0806. This level is considered crucial for the EURUSD pair today, 10 July 2024, with the market receiving support at this level. A rise to 1.0844 is expected. If this level breaks, the price could climb to the local target of 1.0888. After reaching this target, the price is expected to decline to 1.0840 (testing from above). Subsequently, another growth structure could follow, aiming for 1.0900.

EUR rises again

The EURUSD pair is gradually rising. The market will be cautious ahead of the US CPI data release.

The EURUSD pair regained strength and rose to 1.0836 on Thursday.

Today is crucial for the currency market. US June consumer price index statistics and a corresponding basic report are due in the afternoon. The figures will provide the market with more insight into what to expect from the Federal Reserve in the near term.

Inflation is expected to have fallen to 3.1% y/y from the previous 3.3% and is projected to have risen by 0.1% month-over-month from a zero value in May.

It will be essential to monitor core inflation figures as they will show whether there are significant changes in groups of goods and services excluding volatile items. The annual and monthly core CPIs are expected to remain at 3.4% and 0.2%, respectively.

EURUSD technical analysis

On the EURUSD H4 chart, a consolidation range continues to develop above 1.0806 without any clear trend, with the market receiving support at this level. Today, 11 July 2024, the price rose to 1.0839 and is expected to decline to 1.0811, a crucial level for the EURUSD pair. With a breakout below this level, a correction could continue to 1.0777. If a growth wave develops and the price breaks above 1.0840, the trend might continue to the local target of 1.0888.

The GBPUSD pair hit a monthly peak

The GBPUSD pair is appreciating markedly; market sentiment is positive. The Bank of England is gathering additional arguments in favour of falling inflation.

The British pound sterling appears strong against the US dollar. The latest growth impulse was driven by a statement made by Bank of England Chief Economist Huw Pill. He noted that additional evidence of a sustained decline in inflation was necessary before deciding to lower interest rates. Pill believes rising prices in the services sector and overall wage growth negatively impact consumer prices.

UK inflation reached the 2% target in May. However, according to Pill, more is needed as this could be a temporary phenomenon.

The market currently expects borrowing costs to be reduced at the September meeting. According to stock market forecasts, two interest rate cuts of 25 basis points each are possible by the end of the year.

GBPUSD technical analysis

Based on analysis as of 12 July 2024, the GBPUSD pair has reached the growth wave’s local target of 1.2945. Today, a correction might start, aiming for 1.2777. After the correction, the price could rise to 1.2950, marking the completion of growth potential. Subsequently, a decline wave could begin, targeting 1.2610.

EURUSD continues to rise: demand for risk wins over caution

The EURUSD pair remains in positive territory, but the market acts carefully. It has yet to evaluate the consequences of an assassination attempt on Trump.

The EURUSD pair suspended but did not halt its growth, with the main movements around 1.0892 at the start of the week.

Friday’s US statistics were surprising. The producer price index in June rose by 0.2% m/m from the zero value in May in line with the 0.2% forecast. The indicator increased by 2.6% year-over-year from the previous 2.4%. Manufacturing inflation is rising, which may alert the US Federal Reserve and prompt it to maintain elevated interest rates longer than necessary.

The University of Michigan consumer sentiment index dropped to 66.0 points in July, falling short of forecasts of 69.5, which may also be attributed to the inflationary environment.

The weekend events could not but impact the market. This refers to the incident with former US President Donald Trump, who was shot in the ear at his rally in Pennsylvania.

EURUSD technical analysis

On the H4 chart, the EURUSD pair has formed a consolidation range around 1.0888 and extended it to 1.0910. Today, 15 July 2024, the market returned to 1.0881. The price is expected to breach this level and extend the range down to 1.0858, representing the first target for correction. A corrective wave could practically form, with the main target at 1.0808. After the correction, another growth structure might develop towards 1.0950, marking the completion of growth potential.

15072024-eurusd.thumb.png.01bdd6c703e1bb085779d9fdab931d2b.png

Volatility in the EURUSD pair will increase during the US presidential race. Technical indicators point to a further correction towards the 1.0808 target. A growth wave could start once the correction is complete, aiming for 1.0950.

USDCHF: second day of growth

The USDCHF pair is rising for the second day. Activity in USDCHF is low as the market is keeping an eye on the situation.

The instrument appears quite stable now. This is a long-awaited equilibrium point following a marked previous decline.

The US dollar is strengthening against the franc amid growing overall market sympathy with the USD. This comes after last weekend’s incident with former US President Donald Trump. The assassination attempt on the politician increased his chances of winning the presidential race and the November election. Supported by this, the US dollar and US government bond yields are increasing, with other currencies forced to adapt to this situation.

Due to this, Switzerland’s domestic statistics are of secondary importance to investors. Switzerland’s producer price index for June was released yesterday, coming in at zero month-over-month following a previous decrease of 0.3%. However, the indicator fell by 1.9% year-over-year.

USDCHF technical analysis

Technical analysis of the USDCHF pair on the H4 chart as of 16 July 2024 suggests that a decline wave could continue to 0.8901, representing the first target. Once the price reaches this target, a correction towards 0.8975 might develop. Subsequently, another decline wave could follow, aiming for 0.8826 and potentially continuing to 0.8761.

NZD rises amid easing inflation

The NZDUSD rate is rising on Wednesday, 17 July 2024, after rebounding from the support level. The price earlier reached a two-month low.

New Zealand’s services PMI decreased by 2.4 points to 40.2 in June 2024, reaching the lowest level in 17 months. This is the fourth consecutive decline, indicating a significant slowdown in the services sector. Due to this, the NZDUSD rate reached a two-month low.

However, today, investors reacted positively to the news that New Zealand’s annual inflation eased to 3.3% in Q2 from 4.0% in the previous quarter, marking the lowest level in three years. The New Zealand dollar recouped some losses, rising above 0.6081. Despite this data, markets are still pricing in about three interest rate cuts by the end of the year.

The RBNZ kept the interest rate at 5.5% last week but hinted at a potential future easing of monetary policy if inflation continues to slow. This increased the chances of an interest rate cut at the August meeting which is currently estimated by markets at 53%.

NZDUSD technical analysis

On the H4 chart, the NZDUSD pair completed a decline wave, reaching 0.6031. Today, 17 July 2024, a correction towards 0.6098 is expected. Once the correction is complete, a new decline wave could start, aiming for the local target of 0.6022. Subsequently, the price could rise to 0.6064 (testing from below) before falling to 0.5977, the estimated target.

GDP stays afloat despite fundamental data

A decrease in the number of claims for unemployment benefits and a stable unemployment rate increase the chances of the British pound strengthening.

Average earnings in the UK (including May bonuses) decreased by 0.2% from the previous value, in line with the forecast.

The UK claimant count change exceeded expectations but was lower than the previous reading. These data did not significantly affect the GBPUSD rate, with the pair continuing to trade around 1.3000.

The unemployment level remained flat, aligning with the forecast and having little impact on the price.

Data, including US initial jobless claims, is due after the US trading session opens. A preliminary forecast shows an increase to 229,000, which could negatively impact the US dollar.

GBPUSD technical analysis

Analysis of 18 July 2024 shows that the GBPUSD pair has reached the growth wave’s local target of 1.3040 (adjusted for an extension). A correction towards 1.2945 could start today.

AUD falls again, marking the fifth consecutive day of decline

The AUDUSD pair continues to lose ground. The market is selling off risky assets.

The Australian dollar, in the pair with its US counterpart, has been steadily and uninterruptedly falling for five days. The AUDUSD pair reached 0.6698, the lowest level in the last two weeks. The sell-off is associated with the strengthening of the US dollar.

According to recent data, Australia’s unemployment rate rose from 4.0% to 4.1%. At the same time, June’s job growth is notable, indicating heightened tension in the employment sector, which elevates concerns about an interest rate hike by the Reserve Bank of Australia.

Investors are now pricing in a 20% possibility of an RBA interest rate hike in August, whereas the figure did not exceed 12% a couple of days ago.

AUDUSD technical analysis

On the H4 chart, the AUDUSD pair has completed a decline wave, reaching 0.6699. A consolidation range is expected to form above this level today, 19 July 2024. With an upward breakout, a growth wave could start, aiming for 0.6750 and potentially continuing to 0.6811.

Trump takes the lead, but the USD remains hesitant: all eyes on politics

The EURUSD pair is consolidating. Investors need to assess crucial changes in the US political race.

The EURUSD pair stopped at 1.0888 on Monday. The market is extremely cautious as the weekend brought unexpected news that needs to be analysed and weighed.

The incumbent US President, Joe Biden Jr., announced his decision to drop out of the 2024 presidential campaign. He supported Vice President Kamala Harris as his replacement. However, it is still unclear whether Harris can gain the required support as the new Democratic nominee. Former US President Donald Trump, the Republican nominee, is far ahead.

Although Harris can be a strong politician and a presidential nominee, the question remains whether this is enough to change the results of preliminary surveys.
