Market Analysis: Dollar Trying to Resume Upward Movement After Rise in Core CPI
Image

Yesterday's inflation data in the US turned out to be higher than analysts expected. Thus, in general, the level of consumer prices increased by 3.7% year on year, while on a monthly basis, prices increased by 0.6%. Such data indicate that the Fed's hawkish policy has not yet produced the expected results in the fight against inflation, and, most likely, the rate will be raised again at the September meeting. However, the major currency pairs reacted rather subduedly to yesterday's fundamentals. The euro/US dollar, the pound/US dollar and the US dollar/yen managed to remain in the previously formed flat corridors.

EUR/USD

Buyers of the single European currency once again defended support at 1.0700. The development of an upward correction has not yet been observed, as investors are waiting for today's statement from the ECB. At 15:15 GMT+3, the decision on the base interest rate will be announced, and a press conference with Christine Lagarde will take place a little later. If the head of the ECB announces a possible pause in the rate hike, the pair could instantly find itself at 1.0600-1.0500. Conversely, the hawkish tone of officials could contribute to a rise to 1.1000.
Image

USD/JPY

Greenback buyers in the US dollar/yen pair tried yesterday to close the price gap of Monday and go above Friday’s highs of last week. The downward gap is closed, but the level of 147.80 is still confidently holding back the onslaught of dollar bulls. If the range of 147.80-148.00 remains as resistance, we may expect another approach to 146. If it goes above 148.00, we may expect continued growth in the direction of last year’s extremes at 151.00.

From the point of view of fundamental analysis, today at 15:30 GMT+3, it is worth paying attention to the publication of the US retail sales index for August. Weekly data on claims for unemployment benefits will also be released.
Image

GBP/USD

Weak UK GDP data released yesterday resulted in the recent low at 1.2440 being updated. However, the price rebounded sharply from 1.2430 and managed to return to 1.25. The pair is still in a narrow range between 1.2440 and 1.2550; a good news driver is needed to exit flat trading.

Market Analysis: Gold Price Eyes Recovery While Crude Oil Price Surges
Image

  • Gold price started a recovery wave from the $1,900 zone against the US Dollar.
  • It broke a major bearish trend line with resistance near $1,908 on the hourly chart of gold at FXOpen.

Image

The 76.4% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $1,930 swing high to the $1,900 low also sits at $1,925. An upside break above the $1,924 resistance could send Gold price toward $1,930. Any more gains may perhaps set the pace for an increase toward the $1,950 level.

Market Analysis: GBP/USD Extends Losses While EUR/GBP Gains Strength
Image

GBP/USD extended losses and traded below the 1.2465 support. EUR/GBP is rising and might climb above the 0.8615 resistance.

Important Takeaways for GBP/USD and EUR/GBP Analysis Today
  • The British Pound is showing bearish signs below 1.2420.
  • There is a key bearish trend line forming with resistance near 1.2465 on the hourly chart of GBP/USD at FXOpen.
  • EUR/GBP is rising and trading above the 0.8600 zone.
  • There was a break above a connecting bearish trend line with resistance near 0.8600 on the hourly chart at FXOpen.

GBP/USD Technical Analysis

On the hourly chart of GBP/USD at FXOpen, the pair attempted a fresh increase above 1.2500. However, the British Pound failed above 1.2540 and started a fresh decline against the US Dollar.

There was a clear move below the 1.2465 support and the 50-hour simple moving average. The pair even tested the 1.2380 support zone. A low was formed near 1.2378 and the pair is now consolidating losses.

Image

On the upside, the GBP/USD chart indicates that the pair is facing resistance near the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the 1.2548 swing high to the 1.2378 low at 1.2420 and the 50-hour simple moving average.

The next major resistance is near a bearish trend line at 1.2465. It is close to the 50% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the 1.2548 swing high to the 1.2378 low.

A close above the 1.2465 resistance zone could open the doors for a move toward 1.2510. Any more gains might send GBP/USD toward 1.2545. On the downside, there is a key support forming near 1.2380. If there is a downside break below the 1.2380 support, the pair could accelerate lower.

The next major support is near the 1.2320 zone, below which the pair could test 1.2250. Any more losses could lead the pair toward the 1.2200 support.

Market Analysis: S&P 500 under Pressure ahead of Federal Reserve Meeting
Image

The decision on the base interest rate will be published tomorrow at 21:00 GMT+3, and Powell will hold a press conference at 21:30. Although most experts, as reported by the media, expect that the current rate will remain, market participants will closely monitor the Federal Reserve's assessment of the current situation, which includes new data on inflation and the labour market. It is possible that there will be another rate increase before the end of the year.

Meanwhile, the S&P 500 chart shows the market under pressure in mid-September, although the overall picture appears balanced.

The balance of supply and demand is indicated by the fact that the movement B->C is approximately 50% of the movement A->B. And the C->D movement is approximately 50% of the B->C movement. That is, fluctuations die out as buyers and sellers converge.

Image

The price is still within the ascending channel (shown in blue), but it is possible that during tomorrow's news announcement from the Federal Reserve there will be an attempt by the bears to break through it.

Bearish arguments:

  • -> On August 31 - September 1, on the CME exchange, where E-mini futures for the S&P 500 index are traded, volumes below average were recorded, after which the price decreased with an increase in volumes on September 6 — this can be interpreted as if above 4,560 the market is experiencing a shortage of demand. And the revival of the market with a decrease in price is a sign of bearish sentiment.
  • ->Level 4,560 was tested last week, on Thursday. After which there was a sharp decline with an increase in volume on Friday. Similar dynamics indicating that the market is under bearish pressure ahead of the meeting.

If the pressure leads to a new downward impulse, the 4,440 level could become resistance for the bulls' attempts to return the price to the ascending channel.

Central Bank Week Shakes Up Gold Market
Image

Yesterday, the main event of the week took place - the Federal Reserve meeting, which had a noticeable impact on the market of assets denominated in US dollars. But besides the Fed meeting, there are a number of other events this week related to central banks:
-> today at 10:30, a meeting of the Swiss National Bank took place. The interest rate remained at 1.75%, although there was a significant possibility of its increase to 2%.
-> today at 14:00 GMT+3, a decision on the Bank of England interest rate is expected;
-> news from the Central Bank of Japan is planned for tomorrow morning — there may be surprises.

Image

An important asset that is affected by the decisions of central banks is gold. And it is not surprising that the XAU/USD chart showed a surge in volatility yesterday; moreover, new impulses may appear before the end of the week.

Bearish arguments:
-> the price tested the 1,939-1,946 area, which formed in late August - early September. Sellers asserted their dominance in that area, and yesterday the price sharply turned down, attempting to rise into this area;
-> the median line of the ascending channel can now provide resistance to the rise in gold price.

Bullish arguments:
-> rising A and C peaks are a sign of an uptrend, and the lower border of the channel can resist the onslaught of bears;
-> there is a psychological basis to expect support at USD 1,900.

So far, the bulls are holding the line near the trend line, shown in green. And if a weak rebound occurs from it, which does not exceed 50% of the downward momentum that began at yesterday's high, the bears can gain even more confidence in their superiority.

USD/JPY Analysis: Rate Reaches Maximum of the Year
Image

This morning, the Bank of Japan's decision on the interest rate, which has been kept at -0.1% since 2016, became known. The rate size remained unchanged.

Although surprises could occur due to the fact that inflation is still above the central bank's target of 2% for the 17th month in a row. So a tightening of policy is becoming more and more likely. CNBC writes that the Bank of Japan may be prompted to take this step by the weakness of the national currency.

Image

This morning, as the chart shows, the rate has risen very close to the highs of the year. It is possible that it will be updated during the day today.

Bullish arguments:
  • The continuing difference in the monetary policies of the United States and Japan contributes to the growth of the exchange rate even higher.
  • The border of the current bullish channel has not been reached, the potential for growth remains.
  • Rising lows this week indicate stronger demand.
  • Even if the yen strengthens, the trend can be supported by both the median and the lower border of the ascending channel.

Bearish arguments:
  • Market participants' fear of intervention by the Japanese authorities around the level of 150 yen per US dollar, which is considered critical, may weaken the upward trend.
  • If the US dollar index, which rose close to the highs of the year, rolls back, this will strengthen the yen.

Market Analysis: Rising Bond Yields Are Driving Down Price of Gold
Image


The yield on 10-year bonds exceeded 4.5% per annum – a 16-year high. The demand for them was promoted by:
-> tough statements from the Fed last week that the high base interest rate will remain as long as necessary. Moreover, Minneapolis Fed President Neel Kashkari said he expects another increase;
-> concerns related to the likelihood of a US government shutdown on October 1. At the same time, Moody's issued a stern warning, jeopardizing the country's triple-A rating.

It can be assumed that investors choose bonds when forming a portfolio of protective assets. This puts pressure on the gold, which “loses its shine” in their eyes.

Image

Thus, the XAU/USD daily chart shows that the price of gold continues the downward trend that has been going on since spring. Wherein:
-> the price of gold actively interacts with the level of 1,947. In July, this level acted as support, but in August this status changed. And the candle of September 20 confirms the dominance of the bears — the price failed to stay at the achieved heights. It was more like an intraday emotional movement that did not reflect the intrinsic value of gold;
-> so far, the price is near the median line of the channel, where supply and demand tend to balance, so this reduces the likelihood of sharp spikes in volatility;
-> But the psychological level of USD 1,900 per ounce is getting closer. But if in July the price rebounded sharply from it, then in August it made a delay, falling below 1,900. If the pressure on gold continues, then the bears may attempt a new attack on the psychological level and it is possible that the price may drop to the lower limit by the end of the year downward channel
