  4. XAU/USD bulls point to further US dollar weakness Potential catalysts for the day ahead will come during the US session with New York Fed President John Williams and retail sales in the United States. The Fed will then enter a shutdown until its next interest rate decision later this month. This makes the US data the proof. TD Securities analysts explain that retail sales are likely to decline in December, even as higher prices have boosted nominal values. “Spending may be dampened by the disappearance of fiscal stimulus, an earlier-than-normal recovery of holiday shopping and Omicron. We are looking for a notable drop in total revenue of 1.4% month-on-month (consensus: 0.1%) and a larger decrease of 2.0% for the control group (consensus level: 0.1%) consensus: unchanged). Real and nominal spending remained strong QoQ and strong YoY dollars. XAU/USD is trading around $1,820 and down around 0.1% as the DXY index attempts to correct its late-December lows until the current financial year’s sell-off. US$ as measured by the DXY Index, sold off from 96.90 to a recent low of 94.66. For weeks, XAU/USD is up more than 4%. However, in what could be a more technical move, the yellow metal failed to capitalize on falling US yields and the greenback on Thursday. DXY fell 0.4% and the US 10-year yield fell 2.5 basis points to 1.718%. “The persistently weak US dollar failed to lift gold prices as investors expressed concerns about the Fed’s hawkish move to contain inflation,” said analysts at ANZ Bank. However, that won’t explain why the greenback and yields continue to fall. Instead, the bond market appears to be reassessing the pace of the Fed’s balance sheet liquidation following less hawkish rhetoric from Fed Chairman Jerome Powell and Fed Chairman Philly Patrick Harker. On Thursday, Harker said he sees the Fed beginning to shrink its balance sheet “in late 2022 or early 2023” after the central bank raised its target interest rate enough, to about 1% from level close to zero. The comments echo those of Powell, who said the Fed could begin shrinking its balance sheet later this year during a confirmation hearing before the Senate Banking Committee. “At some point, maybe later this year, we’re going to start to see the balance sheet collapse, and that’s just the path to policy normalization,” he said, adding that the US economy “no longer needs or wants” the Fed. policy is very appropriate.

Then a member of the Fed’s Board of Governors and the new FOMC vice president, Lael Brainard, also mentioned: signaled a rate hike as early as March. On the other hand, European Central Bank (ECB) decision maker François Villeroy de Galhau states: “We are very close to the peak of inflation. It should be noted that industrial production in the euro area increased 2.3% month-on-month in November from previously revised 0.5% and 1.3% forecasts. With the recent escalation of pressure on Fed policymakers, bond yields consolidate previous losses, raising questions about equity futures and assets more risky.

On the other hand, a new record of daily fallopian tube infections in Australia and an announcement of a public health emergency in Washington DC are also probing risk takers. In addition, the increase in virus cases in China, recently 166 cases compared to 110 cases a day earlier, is adding to commercial filters. Elsewhere, negative economic forecasts from the World Bank (WB) also challenged previous market optimism. The World Bank cited the coronavirus issue as lowering its global GDP expectations for 2022 to 4.1% from 4.3% previously estimated. The World Bank also cut its economic forecasts for the United States and China, by 0.5% to 3.7%, and 0.3% to 5.1%, respectively, for 2022. Read Full News : Daily & Weekly Analysis on XtreamForex

Details suggest that both exports and imports rose to 2.0% and 6.0 on the order of 3.0%. %, each. Data aside, the cautious optimism of the market considering the risk barometer status of the pair can also be cited as an additional catalyst for the recent rise in the AUD / USD pair. The limited comments of Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell can be seen as a major risk of risk sentiment, according to the comments prepared for today’s testimony. “The economy is growing faster than it was a few years ago, and the labor market is resilient,” the Federal Reserve said, strengthening his promise to prevent high inflation. In addition, comments on Merck’s official slogan, “Any variant of Covid, where the Molnupiravir mechanism expects to counter Omicron,” can be quoted as positive for risk-taking. According to the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis’ (FRED) 10-year breakeven inflation rate, stable inflation expectations in the United States are also challenging bears ahead of key US consumer price index (CPI) data in December.

As a result, market bets on the Fed’s March 2022 rate hike remain at 80%, following Friday’s increase to 90% prior to data. Returning home, Okinawa, Hiroshima and Yamaguchi prefectures are seeing new virus activity restrictions starting Sunday, lasting until January 31.

Moreover, a few Fed officers additionally notion that it’d be suitable to provoke stability sheet runoff in some unspecified time in the future after the primary increase. This underscored a massive shift with within the policymakers’ tone, which, in turn, became visible as a key thing that endured appearing as a tailwind for the USD.

This was reflected in the prolonged sell-off in the US bond market, pushing up government bond yields Long-term US – 10 and 30 years – to their highest levels since October.

Mixed concerns about the COVID19 variant in South Africa, specifically Omicron, join with cautious optimism surrounding US President Joe Biden’s Build Back to Better (BBB) plan, which promotes boost the recent risk-on mood. According to a Mastercard report, China’s industrial profits and an update from the US show an uptick in US retail sales data.

  14. XAU/USD hangs at 100DMA ahead of US data Gold prices have remained steady so far in Asian trading on Wednesday, hovering around the daily moving average (DMA). The shiny metal lacks a clear direction, in the absence of a new catalyst, as attention now turns to US CB consumer confidence data for more impetus. Persistent concerns about the rise of Omicron covid variants in Europe, Australia and the UK continue to emerge amid a diminishing market situation over the holidays. Technically, gold prices remain confined between the major DMAs, with the 14-day Relative Strength Index (RSI) still hovering at 50.00, showing the acumen of gold traders. Gold (XAU/USD) remains slightly offered around $1,790, up for the second day in a row during Wednesday’s Asian session. Even so, the metal has not kept up with other risk barometers, such as Antipodeans and WTI, in depicting the mood at risk. The reason could be related to the cautious market sentiment ahead of the US data series as well as the bearish chart trend. The refusal by global policymakers of lockdown measures ahead of the Christmas holidays, despite the latest spread of the covid variant in South Africa, known as Omicron, seems to have boosted sentiment. . US President Joe Biden’s expectations for the completion of the “Build Back Better (BBB)” plan and vaccine/treatment optimism are also positive for gold. Although Texas reported its first Omicron-related death in the United States, President Joe Biden curtailed any nationwide embargo, as previously revealed, while promoting vaccination faster. Similarly, cautious optimism emanates from the Pacific countries and the United Kingdom. In addition, news that the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) will allow a duo of drugs Pfizer and Merck to treat Covid19 earlier this week, according to Bloomberg sources, also added to the increase mood at risk. In addition, “President Biden said Tuesday that he believes there is still room to achieve his Better Build Back program, despite Senator Joe Manchin’s opposition to the spending bill social and climate goals,” said The Hill. In contrast, inflation expectations rose in the United States, as measured by the 10-year breakeven inflation point according to data from the Federal Reserve of St. Louis (FRED), ahead of key US data from this week challenges gold buyers.

  15. The NZD / USD have struggled to benefit from a modest rebound from its year-to-date lows and is stable around 0.6725 NZD/USD held around the 0.6725 region in the early European session, although it seems to be struggling to capitalize on the intraday bounce from the current year lows. The pair once again succeeded in attracting buying near the round-figure 0.6700 mark on Tuesday and so far appears to have broken two consecutive days of losses. The strong recovery in risk sentiment globally – as evidenced by the positive rally in equity markets – is seen as a key factor in favor of the higher risk-aware kiwi. Additionally, the US dollar’s moderate price action extended additional support for the NZD/USD pair. That said, the hawkish outlook from the Fed, coupled with a slight rise in US Treasury yields, acts as a headwind for the greenback. It should be remembered that the Fed announced last Wednesday that it will double the rate of taper to $30 billion per month. Additionally, so-called dot plots have indicated that officials expect to raise the federal funds rate at least three times over the next year. Additionally, COVID19 anxiety capped gains in the NZD/USD pair. Investors remain concerned about the possibility of a recession due to the rapid spread of the Omicron coronavirus variant. Alternatively, a fatal blow to US President Joe Biden’s massive $1.75 trillion in social spending and the climate bill could stave off any upside moves in the market.

  17. USD/JPY holds near 113.60 on steady hand at BoJ USD/JPY remains on the defensive as the European session approaches and was last seen trading near three-day lows, around mid-113.00. After struggling to find bullish acceptance above the 114.00 mark, USD/JPY sold off on Thursday and reversed the previous day’s FOMC move to monthly highs. A softer risk tone has benefited the safe-haven Japanese yen and put some pressure on the pair for the second straight day on Friday. Investors remain concerned about the economic risks associated with the rapid spread of the Omicron coronavirus variant and the imposition of new restrictions in Europe and Asia. This is evident due to weaker trading sentiment in global equity markets, forcing investors to seek refuge in traditional safe-haven assets. The flight to safety was bolstered by further declines in US Treasury yields, which left the US dollar bulls on the defensive. This is seen as another factor behind the tone given around the USD/JPY pair. The intraday drop appeared unaffected by the announcement of the Bank of Japan (BoJ) policy decision. The BoJ left its monetary policy parameters unchanged at the end of the December meeting, but decided to reduce the stimulus package in the event of a pandemic by the end of March 2022 deadline. That said, the decision. Emergency pandemic funding cuts have entered the market and, as such, have failed to provide a significant boost to the USD/JPY pair. In a press conference after the meeting, BoJ Governor Haruhiko Kuroda reaffirmed that the central bank remains ready to ease monetary policy further without hesitation if necessary. Kuroda added that there is high uncertainty about the impact of the spread of the Omicron variant and there is a need to monitor the risks associated with congestion.

The recent fall in black gold may be related to cautious market sentiment and various concerns prior to major central bank meetings and PMI announcements. However, the previous day’s rebound is related to the Energy Information Administration’s (EIA) limited weekly inventory data and the Federal Reserve’s (FRB) bullish reaction to faster throttles and higher dot plots. There is a possibility. The deteriorating viral condition in Europe and the United Kingdom has joined the extension of the US-China Cold War to squeeze recent oil prices. It is worth noting that US pressure on Uighurville and the rush to manage Beijing’s data companies are the latest catalysts for the US-China struggle. The cautious mood for the European Central Bank (ECB) and Bank of England (BOE) meetings and the provisional PMI in December also weigh heavily on oil prices. We are looking for a clear direction as US 10-year Treasury yields fluctuate after a two-day uptrend as US equity futures boom.

AUD/USD is rallying to its weekly high after two days of gains. Yields have fallen and US stock futures remain moderate amid mixed concerns. America, Russia and Sino-American Stories are battling a retreat from the horrors of Omicron. A bright calendar, market expectations for Friday’s US CPI, indicates risk factors for a new impulse. The US warns Russia of sanctions and aids Ukraine with military force if the Kremlin invades Kiev. A senior US State Department official said on Tuesday that the Biden administration was “focused on how to respond to the new German government if Russia invades Ukraine.” A US State Department official said on Tuesday. Reuters. The US boycott of the 2022 Beijing Olympics is a bad sign for China, as Dragon Nation warns Washington of the consequences. In addition, concerns about companies facing a real estate crisis in China, such as Evergrande and Kaisa, are waning market optimism. In contrast, easing concerns over the South African strain of coronavirus, dubbed Omicron, and hopes for further stimulus from China are encouraging AUD/USD buyers. Against this backdrop, the 10-year U.S. Treasury yield surged to 1.47%, down 2 basis points to 1.47% in two days, and S&P 500 futures struggling to keep up with the monthly benchmark. Continually, the lack of critical data/events keeps the risk catalyst in the driver’s seat. However, the latter risk factor could trigger the consolidation of AUD/USD gains due to the state of the risk indicator for that pair. AUD/USD broke through the major barriers north of around 0.7110, which consists of the 10DMA and the upper line of the 5-week-old downtrend channel. However, the MACD signal shows a bearish bias decline and the RSI is rebounding again from its oversold zone, and the pair’s recovery is breaking out of the horizontal zone, including around 0.6990 recorded in November 2020 and December 2021. Thus, AUD/USD bullish is set to wrestle with the 0.7170 resistance that spanned the September lows and last week’s highs. Read Full News : Daily & Weekly Analysis on XtreamForex
  22. How might Reserve Bank of Australia decision on Interest rates affect AUD/USD? As with the first Tuesday of every month, the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) is ready to announce its latest monetary policy meeting and interest rate decision around 03:30 GMT. The RBA is expected to keep its benchmark interest rate at 0.10% and unchanged its weekly $40 billion bond purchases. Weaker recent third-quarter inflation data from Australia and a stronger wage price index appear to help policymakers keep the status quo. However, due to concerns arising from the South African covid variant, AUD/USD traders should pay close attention to the RBA exchange rate table for clear guidance given the oversold trend of the Australian currency pair near its 2021 lows. Key notes: AUD/USD Price Analysis: Bulls hope to test the 0.71 AUD/USD pattern. RBA Reserve Bank of Australia further declines, risk-free preview: market participants await more stringent hints AUD/USD reached an intraday high near 0.7055 ahead of a major RBA decision early on Tuesday. The Australian currency pair appears to be cautiously preparing for RBA commentary which may be depressing amid bullish markets. It should be noted, however, that Australian Health Minister Greg Hunt has recently welcomed the introduction of a coronavirus vaccine in Australia, thus implying a more robust RBA statement. However, AUD/USD traders will pay little attention to the RBA’s ruling unless the central bank cites significant catalysts or hints for a decline in bond buying in February. Still, optimism about the country’s vaccination program could help the couple maintain their recent gains after monetary policy decisions. Technically, AUD/USD is holding from the November 2020 bottom in RSI oversold conditions. However, the correction retreat remains within the 5-week trend downtrend channel. The August 2021 bottom near 0.7105 attracts short-term buyers ahead of the event, while the convergence of 10DMA and the upper line of the specific channel near 0.7125 are tough nuts for the bulls.

  23. AUD / USD defends 0.7000, prepares for RBA omissions, PBOC RRR falls in stronger yields The AUD / USD rose slightly to 0.701015 during the Asian session on Monday, licking the wounds after the sharp daily decline since early May. Optimistic views on the Australian economy, expectations for a rate cut by the People’s Bank of China (PBOC), and tomorrow’s Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) as Fed linked chatter dragged the Australian pair to new lows in 2021. Preparations recently police officers. Careful optimism in the market can be on the same line. Prior to the RBA meeting, Bloomberg released a poll stating that “The Reserve Bank of Australia is likely to be the last meeting of the year.” On the other hand, ANZ said: “China’s Prime Minister Li Keqiang has promised the International Monetary Fund (IMF) to reduce the reserve requirement ratio (RRR) without specifying a date. Possible reconstruction by default.” In addition to RBA and PBOC chatter, optimistic printouts of second-tier data at home also supported the AUD / USD price. However, Australia’s TD stock inflation rate rose more than 0.2% to 0.3% in November, with ANZ job ads rising from 6.2% last month to 7.4%. In addition, the hope of finding a cure for a variant of South Africa’s Covid known as Omicron is less dangerous than initially feared, adding to rumors that it has fueled market sentiment and AUD / USD prices increase. After first hitting Europe and the United Kingdom, the virus strains are strengthening their grip to reach major world countries such as the United States and China. However, it should be noted that scientists around the world are optimistic about treatments. Recently, senior US doctor Anthony Fauci has confirmed that Pfizer’s drug against Omicron is effective. Meanwhile, the news that chewing gum can contain the spread of the virus and the UK’s treatment efforts are also hopeful for distributors. In addition, Australian Finance Minister Josh Frydenberg’s comment was positive for the AUD / USD rate. According to Reuters, policymakers may revise Australia’s 2022 GDP forecast during a mid-year budget update. It is noteworthy that prices fell sharply on Friday as the US dollar suffered a sudden drop in non-farm payroll (NFP) while trading the unemployment rate collapse. Expectations for the Federal Reserve’s rate hike were also raised by comments from President St. James Bullard. “We may consider raising interest rates before the cut is complete,” policymakers said. Wall Street’s benchmark closed negative, but Friday’s US Treasury 10-year yield fell about 10 basis points (bps) to 1.35%, the lowest level since late September. In the future, risk catalysts and pre-RBA sentiment could boost AUD / USD prices on a bright calendar. Read Full News : Daily & Weekly Analysis on XtreamForex
  24. NZD/USD stays directed towards 0.6710 supports after softer China data, US NFP eyed NZD/USD remained bearish near the intraday low of 0.6786 since the Chinese Caixin PMI released early on Friday. At the same time, the kiwi pair reflects disappointing market sentiment and also responds to soft data ahead of key data on US non-farm payroll (NFP). China Caixin Services PMI for November fell to 52.1 from below 53.8, and the composite PMI also fell to 51.2 from 51.5 in the same month. At the same time, indicators of private activity differ from the official values published earlier this week. Much of the bearish sentiment is adding to the broader strength of the US dollar in hopes of a faster contraction in the Federal Reserve after politicians appeared hawkish in their final speech before the silence began this Saturday. Key proponents of easing faster paybacks, which also fuel fears of inflation, include San Francisco Federal Reserve Bank (FRS) Governors Mary Daley and Thomas Barkin Richmond. Fed’s hawkish outlook, as well as a weaker-than-expected result for the week’s early and ongoing US unemployment claims, a dismal job cut for November applicants, also reinforced hopes for a faster austerity policy and favorable returns from the Fed. The Wall Street indicator also posted a consolidated weekly loss the previous day, but it should be noted that S&P 500 futures and Asia Pacific stocks fell earlier on Friday. The reason may have to do with the hopes of US politicians to avoid a government shutdown on Saturday. Also positive for kiwi prices may be recent optimism about the search for a cure for a South African strain of coronavirus called Omicron. Meanwhile, Beijing’s remarks about the EUUS’s recent dislike of China and the first phase of trade negotiations and tariffs seem to challenge risk appetite. In a similar vein, caution has been created ahead of the US employment report. Read Full News : Daily & Weekly Analysis on XtreamForex
  25. USD/JPY pair may return to 113.00 amid falling yields USD/JPY rebounded to 113.00 during its first open in Tokyo on Thursday, struggling to defend its first of a three-day advance. The yen appears to be receiving signals from the dollar’s rebound and a surge in global market volatility reflecting recent moves. But the Fed’s next move and eagerness to put safety at risk amid mixed fears of the Omicron crisis are keeping the Japanese currency at the top of the safe haven list and raising doubts among bull markets. USD/JPY hit an intraday high and fell near its two-month low, during the pre-NFP trade downturn, markets are sluggish and mixed signals from the Fed add to the hesitation. The US is considering extending the shelf life of masks after marking the first Omicron case. The OECD is downgrading its global growth projections, with Japan’s GDP expected to rise to 1.8% in 2021 from 2.5% in previous projections. While reiterating concerns about inflation, Fed Chairman Jerome Powell said he still believes inflation will “fall significantly” in the second half of 2022, while speaking out against a Senate committee. In contrast, New York Federal Reserve Governor John C. Williams said the New York Times said Omicron could extend the supply-demand mismatch, leaving some inflationary pressure. The 10-year Treasury yield is under pressure near its two-month low at around 1.42% at the time of release, while S&P 500 futures are trading up 0.30% since the Wall Street benchmarks released. But the promise of safety is supported by the latest news about corona virus options in South Africa. Following the first Oh Micron incident in the United States, the Joe Biden administration has put pressure on people to expand the rules for wearing masks on public transportation. “The administration of President Joe Biden will extend the requirement for travelers to wear masks on planes, trains, buses, and airports and train stations by mid-March to address the current risk of Omicron as reported by Reuter. Add to that risk shift and could be the latest economic forecast from the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), which suggests that global GDP will grow by 5.6% in 2021 (previously 5.7%) and 4.5% in 2022. According to Reuters, it is 3.2% in 2023. Read Full News : Daily & Weekly Analysis on XtreamForex
  26. USD/JPY is recovering from a nearly two-month low and is climbing above the 113.00s mid-point USD/JPY maintained its footing in pre-European trading and last traded near its daily high at 113.60. After overnight volatile price movements, the USD/JPY pair gained some positive dynamics on Wednesday and found support from several factors. Global risk sentiment has stabilized slightly as investors decide to wait and see if the new strain of Omicron corona virus will ultimately hamper the economic recovery. This is evidenced by a good recovery in the stock market, which weakened the safe Japanese yen and acted as a headwind for major currencies. Key Notes: The combination of supporting factors continued to help USD/JPY recover from a two-month low. A modest recovery in risk sentiment eroded the safe yen and maintained the favor. The bulls also sensed a rise in US bond yields, but a devaluation of the US dollar could limit returns The Bulls also turned to a subsequent rebound in US Treasury yields, helped by restrictive comments from Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell. When testifying in front of the Senate Banking Commission, Powell said it was time to get off the floor and it would be appropriate to consider ending the asset purchase expansion perhaps a few months earlier. He added that the risk of persistently high inflation is increasing and high inflation is expected by next year. In response to Chairman Powell’s remarks, short-term financial markets have begun evaluating the possibility of a rate hike of at least 50 basis points through the end of 2022. This, in turn, was seen as a key factor in continuing to support US bond yields. Despite interest rate hikes driven by more aggressive Fed tightening, the US dollar has so far struggled to entice meaningful purchases. This could deter traders from displaying aggressive bullishness and limit the continued recovery of the USD/JPY pair from its near two-month low. Market participants are now eagerly awaiting US economic reports including ADP report and ISM manufacturing PMI. A joint speech by FRS Chairman Jerome Powell and US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen at the House Financial Services Committee is also expected to affect the strength of the dollar. Going forward, traders will consider developments surrounding the coronavirus saga and broader market risk sentiment to capitalize on some of the opportunities associated with the USD/JPY pair.

  27. Options market USD/CAD turns most bearish in last two weeks & expecting volatility in future WTI crude fell to $70.40 in an early two-day rally on Tuesday. While the 2-day symmetrical triangle limits Black Gold’s recent move, adding 50 HMA to the RSI’s decline and the upper barrier is encouraging for sellers. However, a clear downward break of the triangular support level near $69.20 at the time of issue was necessary for oil sellers to regain control. After that, a Friday low of $68.30 will attract the market’s attention before lowering the WTI bearish to a September low of around $67 and a July low of around $65. On the other hand, the rise in commodity prices will be a nutritious nut around $72.00 including the triangular resistance and 50 HMA. Even if the price crosses $72, Friday’s high of $74 could provide an additional filter before oil moves up to $77.60. This implies an upside on the 25th of November. The options market scenario supports USDCAD sellers ahead of today’s testimony of Canada’s GDP and Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell. The reason for the bearish trend may be related to the cautious optimism of the market on Monday. However, recent doubts about the ability of the vaccine to tame a South African Covid variant known as Omicron support US $ / Canadian dollar buyers. With that in mind, the USD / CAD recorded a 0.30% daytime rise of about 1.2790 at the time of the press. Read Full News : Daily & Weekly Analysis on XtreamForex
  28. GBP/USD remains weak below 1.3350 amid omicron concerns and Brexit concerns GBP/USD is trading moderately below 1.3350, consolidating from its 11-month low of 1.3278, with risk sentiment improving slightly. Despite the risk reset, the risk remains downward biased against the majors as they continue to face the latest Omicron covid and ongoing Brexit issues. Risk sentiment took a hit in early Asia, and concerns over the latest covid variant shook the market, propelling the overall rebound of the US dollar. South Africa’s recent surge in COVID-19 cases, which appears to have been triggered by a new strain, is urging countries around the world to impose new restrictions. However, Dror Mezorah, head of the coronavirus department at Hadassah University Hospital in Ein Karem, said the clinical status of people infected with Omicron is encouraging. Despite risk recovery, sentiment around the pound can remain compromised by ongoing Brexit concerns. Vice-President of the European Commission, Margaritis Schinas, said Britain needed to resolve the post-Brexit immigration issue on Saturday. Meanwhile, French President Emmanuel Macron attacked British Prime Minister Boris Johnson in a letter tweeted Friday and accused him of being “not serious.” This is in light of the ongoing tensions surrounding the Franco-British fishery. We will continue to lead the update of Omicron Covid variants and their impact on risk sentiment on Monday’s UK and US economic calendars. Investors are trying to reassess the Bank of England’s (BOE) rate hike expectations in light of recent Covid claims. This could be a further downside to the UK currency.
