EUR/USD Price Analysis: Further upside in store above 1.0690 EURUSD
  • EUR/USD faces a corrective decline and drops to 1.0860.
  • The short-term bullish bias remains unchanged above 1.0690.

EUR/USD retreats for the second session in a row and revisits the 1.0860 region on Friday.

While above the short-term support line around 1.0690, extra gains should remain in store for the pair.

Indeed, the continuation of the uptrend now needs to rapidly clear the 2023 high at 1.0929 (January 26) to allow for a test of the weekly top at 1.0936 (April 21 2022). A sustainable break above this level could pave the way for a challenge of the key barrier at 1.1000 the figure sooner rather than later.

In the longer run, the constructive view remains unchanged while above the 200-day SMA, today at 1.0309.

AUD/USD flat-lines around 0.7100, just below multi-month top ahead of US PCE AUDUSD
  • AUD/USD struggles to gain any meaningful traction and remains confined in a range.
  • A combination of factors revives the USD demand and acts as a headwind for the pair.
  • Bets for additional RBA rate hikes lend support ahead of the key US PCE Price Index.

The AUD/USD pair is seen oscillating in a narrow trading band on Friday and consolidating its recent strong gains to the highest level since June 2022 touched the previous day. The pair is currently placed around the 0.7100 mark, nearly unchanged for the day, as traders look to the key US macro data for a fresh impetus.

The Fed's preferred inflation gauge - the Core PCE Price Index - is due for release in a short while from now. This might influence the US central bank's rate hike path, which, in turn, will drive the US Dollar demand and provide a fresh directional impetus to the AUD/USD pair. In the meantime, a goodish pickup in the US Treasury bond yields lends some support to the buck. Apart from this, the prevalent cautious market mood further benefits the greenback's relative safe-haven status and caps the upside for the risk-sensitive Aussie.

The modest intraday USD, however, lacks bullish conviction amid the prospects for a less aggressive policy tightening by the Fed. In fact, the markets are still pricing in a smaller 25 bps Fed rate hike move in February, which, in turn, keeps a lid on any meaningful upside for the greenback. Apart from this, rising odds for an additional rate hike by the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) in February, bolstered by the stronger domestic CPI report on Wednesday, underpin the domestic currency and acts as a tailwind for the AUD/USD pair.

Friday's US economic docket also features the release of Pending Home Sales data and the revised Michigan Consumer Sentiment Index. This, along with the US bond yields and the broader market risk sentiment, might influence the USD price dynamics and provide some impetus to the AUD/USD pair. The focus, however, will remain glued to the outcome of a two-day FOMC monetary policy meeting, scheduled to be announced next Wednesday. Heading into the key event risk, the major is more likely to prolong its consolidative price move.

Singapore: Industrial Production expanded above estimates in December – UOB

Alvin Liew, Economist at UOB Group, reviews the latest Industrial Prodcution results in Singapore.

Key Takeaways

“Singapore’s industrial production (IP) ended 2022 with a surprise +3.2% m/m SA increase in Dec. Nevertheless, this still translated into a contraction of -3.1% y/y in Dec. Excluding the volatile biomedical manufacturing, IP actually expanded by 6.8% m/m, +0.3% y/y in Dec (from a revised -7.0% m/m, -5.8% y/y in Nov).”

“The Dec IP was dragged by weaker biomedical, chemicals, precision engineering and general manufacturing, negating the continued gains in transport and a surprise rebound of electronics output. Indeed, electronics staged a surprise 4.6% y/y rebound, thanks to the key sub-segments of infocomms & consumer electronics and computer peripherals & data storage, while its most essential sub-segment, semiconductors, recorded a much smaller -0.3% y/y fall compared to -14.0% in Nov. However, the semiconductor rebound is likely temporary because of the continued declining trend of Asia-Pacific semiconductor sales.”

IP Outlook – Taking into account of the Dec IP contraction, Singapore’s manufacturing sector declined by a smaller -2.6% y/y in 4Q 22 (versus the official estimates of -3.0% y/y from the advance estimates released in early Jan 2023), but for the full year, due to further downward revisions in earlier quarters that outweighed the improvements in 4Q, IP actually expanded by a slower pace of +2.5% in 2022, (versus the official estimate of 2.6% made based on advance estimates released on 3 Jan 2023). So even as we estimate a small upward revision to 4Q GDP to 2.3% y/y (from 2.2%), we expect full year GDP could be revised 0.1ppt lower to 3.7% (from 3.8%). We maintain our forecast for Singapore 2023 manufacturing to contract by 5.4% due to the faltering outlook for electronics and weaker external demand, a view that is supported by the declining trend in PMI and the increasing visible cracks in exports’ outlook. With the weaker 2023 manufacturing outlook and barring external events (such as escalating war in Europe and a deadlier variant of COVID-19), we keep our modest 2023 GDP growth forecast of 0.7% unchanged (versus the official forecast range of 0.5-2.5%).”

USD Index Price Analysis: Further losses on the cards below 103.15
  • The index extends the bounce in the second half of the week.
  • The 3-month resistance line near 103.15 caps the upside.

DXY advances for the second consecutive session and challenges the key hurdle at the 102.00 mark on Friday.

Despite the rebound, the index remains well under pressure and a sustainable breach of the 101.50 level should accelerate losses to, initially, the May 2022 low around 101.30 (May 30) prior to the psychological 100.00 yardstick.

On the upside, the 3-month resistance line around 103.15 continues to limit occasional gains. Below this line, the dollar is expected to keep the short-term bearish bias unchanged.

In the longer run, while below the 200-day SMA at 106.47, the outlook for the index remains negative.

When is the US December PCE Price Index and how could it affect EUR/USD?

US PCE Price Index Overview

Friday's US economic docket highlights the release of the Core Personal Consumption Expenditure (PCE) Price Index, scheduled later during the early North American session at 13:30 GMT. The Fed's preferred inflation gauge is foreseen to rise by 0.2% in December, matching the previous month's reading. The year rate, however, is anticipated to have eased from 4.7% in November to 4.4%.

Analysts at Deutsche Bank, meanwhile, anticipate a rather stronger reading and write: “We don't expect the same declines as recently seen in CPI as some of the stronger components in PPI last week are better correlated to PCE components. We expect a +0.4% monthly gain.”

How Could it Affect EUR/USD?

Against the backdrop of the upbeat fourth-quarter US GDP report, a surprisingly stronger print will fuel speculations that the Fed will stick to its hawkish stance for a longer period. This, in turn, should prompt some near-term short-covering move around the US Dollar and drag the EUR/USD pair further away from a nine-month high touched earlier this week.

Conversely, weaker PCE data will cement expectations that the Fed will slow the pace of its policy-tightening cycle and lifts bets for a smaller 25 bps rate hike in February. This could exert downward pressure on the already weaker greenback. The market reaction, however, is likely to remain limited as the focus remains on the FOMC and ECB policy meetings next week.

Eren Sengezer, Editor at FXStreet, offers a brief technical outlook for the pair and writes: “EUR/USD broke below the ascending regression channel late Thursday. Although the pair returned within that channel during the Asian trading hours, it lost its recovery momentum and closed the last four-hour candle below the lower-limit. Furthermore, the pair now trades below the 20-period Simple Moving Average (SMA) and the Relative Strength Index (RSI) indicator stays slightly below 50, suggesting that buyers remain on the sidelines.”

Eren also outlines important technical levels to trade the EUR/USD pair: “On the downside, 1.0850 (static level, 50-period SMA) aligns as key support level. In case EUR/USD falls below that level and starts using it as resistance, it could continue to push lower toward the 1.0800/1.0790 area (psychological level, static level, 100-period SMA).”

“If EUR/USD rises above 1.0900 (20-period SMA, lower limit of the channel) and stabilizes there, it could extend its rebound toward 1.0930 (mid-point of the ascending channel, static level) and 1.0980 (former support, static level),” Eren adds further.

  •  US Core PCE Preview: Forecasts from seven major banks, decline continues

  •  EUR/USD Forecast: Euro faces key support at 1.0850

About the US PCE Price Index

The Personal Spending released by the Bureau of Economic Analysis, Department of Commerce is an indicator that measures the total expenditure by individuals. The level of spending can be used as an indicator of consumer optimism. It is also considered as a measure of economic growth: While Personal spending stimulates inflationary pressures, it could lead to raise interest rates. A high reading is positive (or Bullish) for the USD.

Silver Price Analysis: XAG/USD flirts with ascending channel/100-hour SMA confluence
  • Silver comes under some renewed selling pressure on the last day of the week.
  • The technical setup supports prospects for a further intraday depreciating move.
  • A sustained move beyond the $24.50-$24.55 area will negate the negative bias.

Silver extends the previous day's retracement slide from the $24.30 area, or over a one-week high, and remains under some selling pressure on Friday. The white metal maintains its offered tone through the mid-European session and is currently placed near the daily low, around the $23.70 region.

From a technical perspective, the XAG/USD, so far, has managed to defend the lower end of a four-day-old ascending trend channel. The said support coincides with the 100-hour SMA and should now act as a pivotal point for short-term traders. Given that oscillators on hourly charts have been gaining some negative traction, a convincing break below will set the stage for further losses.

The XAG/USD might then accelerate the fall towards intermediate support near the $23.50-$23.45 area before eventually dropping to test sub-$23.00 levels. This is followed by the weekly low, around the $22.75 region touched on Monday. Some follow-through selling has the potential to drag the commodity further towards testing the next relevant support near the $22.00 round figure.

On the flip side, the daily swing high, around the $24.00 mark, might now act as an immediate hurdle. Any further move up might confront resistance near the $24.25-$24.30 region ahead of the $24.50-$24.55 supply zone, or a multi-month high touched on January 16. A sustained strength beyond should allow the XAU/USD to reclaim the $25.00 psychological mark for the first time since April 2022.

Philippines: GDP figures surprised to the upside – UOB

UOB Group’s Senior Economist Julia Goh and Economist Loke Siew Ting comment on the latest results from the GDP readings in the Philippines.

Key Takeaways

“The Philippines’ economy expanded at a stronger-than-expected pace of 7.2% y/y in 4Q22 (vs UOB est: +6.5%, Bloomberg est: +6.6%) but on trend wise, the growth rate decelerated from 7.6% in the preceding quarter and the previous peak of 8.2% in 1Q22. The full-year real GDP growth also came in higher than anticipated at 7.6% in 2022 (UOB est: 7.4%, Bloomberg est: 7.4%, 2021: +5.7%), marking the strongest annual growth since 1976.”

“Almost all economic sectors pencilled in positive growth in 4Q22, except for the agriculture, hunting, fishery & forestry industry. Resilient household consumption, higher government spending, sustained investments and stronger exports amid slower imports also helped to support the growth momentum last quarter and fully cushioned the drag from stock withdrawal activities.”

“We expect real GDP to moderate further throughout 2023, taking the full-year economic growth rate down to 5.0% (official est: 6.0%-7.0%) from a 46-year high of 7.6% in 2022. Our view mainly takes into consideration statistical base effects and prevailing downside risks to the growth outlook. Although the nation’s economic growth is expected to extend its downtrend, inflation risks are still tilted to the upside, suggesting that interest rate will have to rise further to reach levels sufficiently restrictive for some time. Thus, we stick to our BSP call for two more 25bps hikes in 1Q23 before taking a pause at 6.00% thereafter.”

EUR/JPY Price Analysis: Range bound trade looks likely near term EURJPY
  • EUR/JPY extends the erratic performance above 141.00 so far this week.
  • The key 200-day SMA keeps holding the downside near 140.80.

EUR/JPY fades Thursday’s uptick and trades on the defensive within the so far multi-session consolidative theme at the end of the week.

Extra consolidation should not be ruled out in the very near term. In case the downside accelerates, the next support of note emerges at the 200-day SMA, today at 140.82. A sustainable drop below the latter exposes extra weakness to, initially, the 138.00 neighbourhood.

The constructive outlook for EUR/JPY is seen unchanged above the 200-day SMA for the time being.

South Korea: Economy is now seen expanding 1.3% in 2023 – UOB

UOB Group’s Economist Ho Woei Chen reviews the latest flash Q4 GDP figures in South Korea.

Key Takeaways

“South Korea’s advance GDP moderated to a growth of 1.4% y/y in 4Q22 from 3.1% y/y in 3Q22. The economy also recorded its first sequential decline since the technical recession in 1H20, contracting by -0.4% q/q SA in 4Q22. For the full-year, South Korea’s GDP grew 2.6% in 2022 compared to 4.1% in 2021.”

“Private consumption recovery turned out to be weaker-than-expected while external demand slowed.”

“We now expect a slower economic growth of 1.3% in 2023 compared to our earlier forecast of 1.7%.”

“We maintain our view that the BOK is done with its rate hikes and would stay on hold at 3.50% through 2023.”

USD/CNH risks further retracement – UOB

USD/CNH could accelerate losses and revisit the 6.6985 level in the short-term horizon, comment Economist Lee Sue Ann and Markets Strategist Quek Ser Leang at UOB Group.

Key Quotes

24-hour view: “We noted yesterday that ‘the underlying tone has weakened somewhat’ and we expected USD to edge lower. However, we were of the view that the major support at 6.7400 is unlikely to come under threat. We did not anticipate the sudden surge in downward momentum as USD plunged to a low of 6.7250 before closing at 6.7373 (-0.45%). The boost in downward momentum is likely to lead to further USD weakness even though the month-to-date low near 6.6985 is unlikely to come under threat today (there is another support at 6.7100). On the upside, a breach of 6.7550 (minor resistance is at 6.7440) would indicate the current USD weakness has stabilized.”

Next 1-3 weeks: “Yesterday (27 Jan, spot at 6.7720), we held the view that USD is still consolidating, likely within a range of 6.7400/6.8000. We did not expect the sudden lurch lower as USD broke 6.7400 and plummeted to a low of 6.7250. Downward momentum is building quickly and we expect USD to weaken toward the month-to-date low near 6.6985. A break of 6.6985 is not ruled out but at this stage, the odds of USD weakening to the next support at 6.6500 are not high. Overall, only a breach of 6.7760 (‘strong resistance’ level) would indicate that the build-up in downward momentum has faded.”

10:19
GBP/USD hangs near daily low, well offered below 1.2400 ahead of US PCE Price Index
  • GBP/USD meets with some supply on Friday, though the downside remains cushioned.
  • A softer risk tone, rebounding US bond yields benefit the USD and weigh on the major.
  • Traders eye the US PCE for some impetus ahead of key central bank meetings next week.

The GBP/USD pair continues with its struggle to find acceptance above the 1.2400 mark and comes under some selling pressure on the last day of the week. The pair remains on the defensive through the first half of the European session and is currently placed around the 1.2380-1.3375 region, just a few pips above the daily low.

A combination of factors lends support to the US Dollar, which, in turn, is seen exerting some downward pressure on the GBP/USD pair. The better-than-expected US growth figures released on Thursday fueled speculations that the Fed will maintain its hawkish stance for longer. This, in turn, leads to a goodish intraday move up in the US Treasury bond yields, which, along with a softer risk tone, benefits the safe-haven Greenback.

The USD, meanwhile, fails to attract any meaningful buying as investors still seem convinced that the Fed will soften its hawkish stance and deliver a smaller 25 bps next week. Moreover, speculations that elevated consumer inflation will force the Bank of England (BoE) to continue lifting rates offer some support to the British Pound. This, in turn, should help limit any meaningful downside for the GBP/USD pair, at least for now.

Traders also seem reluctant and prefer to wait for the release of the Fed's preferred inflation gauge - the Core PCE Price Index. The data will play a key role in influencing the US central bank's rate-hike path, which will drive the USD demand and provide some impetus to the GBP/USD pair. The focus, however, will remain glued to next week's key central bank event risks - the FOMC policy decision on Wednesday and the BoE meeting on Thursday.

EUR/USD meets resistance around 1.0900 ahead of US docket EURUSD
  • The daily upside in EUR/USD falters around 1.0900.
  • The greenback looks side-lined ahead of key data releases.
  • US PCE, Core PCE, Consumer Sentiment next of note in the docket.

After a brief test of the 1.0900 region earlier in the session, EUR/USD now comes under some mild downside pressure and revisits the 1.0880 zone at the end of the week.

EUR/USD: Near-term top at 1.0930?

EUR/USD seems to have met some resistance zone in the area of multi-month peaks near 1.0930 (January 26) amidst the broad-based consolidative mood in the global markets and some lacklustre recovery in the greenback.

On the latter, better-than-expected results from key US fundamentals on Thursday lent support to the buck and prevented the USD Index (DXY) from shedding further ground, which eventually morphed into the ongoing corrective decline in spot.

However, the ongoing debate between what markets believe the Fed should do – namely an impasse in its normalization process – and what the Fed’s rate setters think it is appropriate – again, raising rates above 5% and staying there longer than anticipated – remains poised to dominate the price action in the pair at least until the next week, where both the FOMC and the ECB meets to decide on rates.

In the domestic calendar, Consumer Confidence in France eased a tad to 80 in January (from 81) and the Spanish GDP Growth Rate surprised to the upside at 0.2% QoQ in Q4 and 2.7% over the last twelve months. In addition, Chairwoman Lagarde is also due to speak.

Across the pond, a busy calendar will show inflation figures gauged by the PCE followed by the final Michigan Consumer Sentiment, Pending Home Sales and Personal Income/Spending.

What to look for around EUR

The sharp yearly rally in EUR/USD appears to have met an initial and decent barrier around the 1.0930 for the time being.

In the meantime, price action around the European currency should continue to closely follow dollar dynamics, as well as the potential next steps from the ECB and the Federal Reserve at their upcoming gatherings in the next week.

Back to the euro area, recession concerns now appear to have dwindled, which at the same time remain an important driver sustaining the ongoing recovery in the single currency as well as the hawkish narrative from the ECB.

Key events in the euro area this week: France Consumer Confidence, ECB Lagarde (Friday).

Eminent issues on the back boiler: Continuation of the ECB hiking cycle amidst dwindling bets for a recession in the region and still elevated inflation. Impact of the war in Ukraine and the protracted energy crisis on the bloc’s growth prospects and inflation outlook. Risks of inflation becoming entrenched.

EUR/USD levels to watch

So far, the pair is retreating 0.04% at 1.0883 and the breakdown of 1.0766 (weekly low January 17) would target 1.0598 (55-day SMA) en route to 1.0481 (monthly low January 6). On the other hand, the next up barrier is seen at 1.0929 (2023 high January 26) followed by 1.0936 (weekly high April 21 2022) and finally 1.1000 (round level).

USD/JPY keeps the red below 130.00, eyes US PCE Price Index for fresh impetus
  • USD/JPY meets with a fresh supply on Friday and is pressured by a combination of factors.
  • Strong Tokyo inflation fuels speculations about a hawkish shift by the BoJ and lifts the JPY.
  • The emergence of fresh USD selling contributes to the intraday slide ahead of the US PCE.

The USD/JPY pair comes under some renewed selling pressure on Friday and reverses a major part of the overnight modest bounce from the 129.00 mark, or the weekly low. The pair remains depressed through the first half of the European session and is currently placed around the 129.80-129.75 region, down over 0.30% for the day.

A combination of factors provides a modest boost to the Japanese Yen (JPY), which, in turn, attracts fresh sellers around the USD/JPY pair. Data released earlier today showed that inflation in Japan's capital, Tokyo rose to a new 41-year high in December. This comes on the back of a similar rise in countrywide inflation and is expected to invite a more hawkish stance from the Bank of Japan (BoJ) later this year. Apart from this, a softer risk tone further underpins demand for the safe-haven JPY.

The US Dollar, on the other hand, struggles to preserve its modest intraday gains and contributes to the offered tone surrounding the USD/JPY pair. In fact, the USD Index, which tracks the greenback against a basket of currencies, languishes near an eight-month low amid the prospects for a less aggressive policy tightening by the Fed. Despite the stronger fourth-quarter growth figures from the US, the markets are still pricing in a smaller 25 bps lift-off at the upcoming FOMC meeting next week.

That said, a goodish pickup in the US Treasury bond yields might act as a tailwind for the greenback and should help limit deeper losses for the USD/JPY pair, at least for the time being. Traders also seem reluctant and move to the sidelines ahead of Friday's release of the Fed's preferred inflation gauge - the Core PCE Price Index. This, along with the US bond yields and the broader risk sentiment, should provide some impetus to the USD/JPY pair and allow traders to grab short-term opportunities.

USD/CAD sticks to modest intraday gains, lacks follow-through amid bullish oil prices
  • USD/CAD regains some positive traction on Friday amid a modest pickup in the USD demand.
  • Thursday’s upbeat US macro data fuels hawkish Fed expectations and benefits the greenback.
  • Bullish crude oil prices continue to underpin the Loonie and keep a lid on any further gains.
  • Traders now eye the US PCE report for a fresh impetus ahead of the FOMC meeting next week.

The USD/CAD pair attracts some buyers on Friday and reverses a part of the previous day's slide to the 1.3300 mark, or its lowest level since November 17. The pair sticks to its intraday gains through the early European session and is currently placed near the daily top, just below mid-1.3300s.

The US Dollar draws support from the mostly upbeat US macro data released on Thursday and edges higher on the last day of the week, which, in turn, is acting as a tailwind for the USD/CAD pair. In fact, the US Commerce Department reported that the economy expanded at a 2.9% annualised pace during the fourth quarter against consensus estimates for a reading of 2.6%. The stronger-than-expected growth figures could allow the Fed to maintain its hawkish stance for longer. This pushes the US Treasury bond yields higher and continues to benefit the greenback.

The markets, however, still seem convinced that the Fed will slow the pace of its policy-tightening and deliver a smaller 25 bps rate hike in February. This holds back the USD bulls from placing aggressive bets. Apart from this, the underlying bullish sentiment surrounding crude oil prices is underpinning the commodity-linked Loonie. The aforementioned factors should contribute to capping any meaningful upside for the USD/CAD pair. Traders might also prefer to wait for the release of the US Core PCE Price Index, due later during the early North American session.

The key focus, however, will remain glued to the outcome of the highly-anticipated two-day FOMC policy meeting, scheduled to be announced next week. In the meantime, the US bond yields and the broader risk sentiment will drive the USD demand. Apart from this, oil price dynamics should provide some impetus to the USD/CAD pair and assist traders to grab short-term opportunities.

USD/JPY faces extra consolidation near term – UOB

According to Economist Lee Sue Ann and Markets Strategist Quek Ser Leang at UOB Group, USD/JPY is expected to keep navigating within the 128.00-130.80 range in the near term.

Key Quotes

24-hour view: “We highlighted yesterday that ‘the pullback in USD has room to extend but is unlikely to break 128.00’. Our view was incorrect as USD rebounded strongly from 129.01 to 130.61 before dropping quickly. USD appears to have moved into a consolidation phase and it is likely to trade between 129.10 and 130.55 today.”

Natural Gas now targets the $2.40 zone

Prices of the natural gas kept its downtrend well in place for yet another session on Thursday. The move was amidst rising open interest and volume and underpins the idea that extra weakness remains on the cards in the very near term. The next target of note appears at the 2021 lows around $2.40 per MMBtu.

Further upside could lift AUD/USD to the 0.7170 zone in the short-term horizon, according to Economist Lee Sue Ann and Markets Strategist Quek Ser Leang at UOB Group.

Key Quotes

24-hour view: “We highlighted yesterday that ‘further AUD strength appears likely even though the major resistance at 0.7170 is unlikely to come under threat today’. Our view was not wrong as AUD rose to 0.7143 before retreating. Upward pressure has eased and AUD is unlikely to advance much further. Today, the AUD is expected to trade in a range between 0.7085 and 0.7145.”

Next 1-3 weeks: “Our view from yesterday (26 Jan, spot at 0.7100) that ‘the improved upward momentum suggests AUD is likely to advance further’ is still valid. As highlighted, the level to watch is 0.7170. On the downside, a breach of the ‘strong support’ at 0.7040 (level was at 0.7025 yesterday) would indicate that AUD is not advancing further.”

Gold Price Forecast: XAU/USD remains on the defensive around $1,925 ahead of US PCE
  • Gold price remains on the defensive for the second straight day amid modest US Dollar strength.
  • Thursday’s upbeat US macro data fuels hawkish Fed expectations and underpins the Greenback.
  • A positive risk tone further exerts pressure on safe-haven XAU/USD ahead of the US PCE data.
  • The market focus will remain glued to the highly-anticipated FOMC policy meeting next week.

Gold price trades with a mild negative bias for the second successive day on Friday and hovers around the $1,925 region during the early European session. The intraday downtick, however, lacks follow-through, warranting some caution before positioning for a deeper corrective pullback from a nine-month peak touched the previous day.

Modest US Dollar strength weighs on Gold price

The US Dollar (USD) draws support from Thursday's mostly upbeat macro data from the United States (US) and turns out to be a key factor weighing on Gold price. In fact, the US Commerce Department reported that the world's largest economy expanded at a 2.9% annualised pace during the fourth quarter against consensus estimates for a reading of 2.6%. This points to an economy that continues to show resilience despite the rapid rise in borrowing costs and backs the case for the Federal Reserve (Fed) to maintain its hawkish stance for longer. This, in turn, pushes the US Treasury bond yields higher and underpins the Greenback.

Positive risk tone further undermines safe-haven XAU/USD

The robust economic indicators from the US ease recession fears and boost investors' confidence, which is evident from a generally positive tone around the equity markets. This is seen as another factor exerting some pressure on the safe-haven Gold price. The downside for the XAU/USD, meanwhile, seems cushioned as traders seem reluctant ahead of Friday's release of the Fed's preferred inflation gauge - the US Core Personal Consumption Expenditures (PCE) Price Index. This will influence the Fed's rate-hike path, which, in turn, will drive the USD demand and provide a fresh directional impetus to the non-yielding yellow metal.

Focus remains on Federal Reserve decision next week

The focus, however, remains on the outcome of a two-day Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) meeting, scheduled to be announced next Wednesday. The markets still seem convinced that the US central bank will soften its stance and have been pricing in a greater chance of a 25 bps rate hike on February 1. Heading into the key central bank event risk, traders might refrain from placing aggressive bets. This further makes it prudent to wait for strong follow-through selling before confirming that Gold price has topped out in the near term.

Gold price technical outlook

From a technical perspective, any further slide below the $1,920 resistance breakpoint, now turned support, is likely to attract fresh buyers around the $1,911-$1,910 support zone. This, in turn, should help limit the downside for the XAU/USD near the $1,900 round-figure mark. The latter should act as a pivotal point, which if broken decisively might shift the near-term bias in favour of bearish traders and pave the way for a meaningful corrective decline.

On the flip side, the multi-month peak, around the $1,949 area touched on Thursday, now seems to have emerged as an immediate strong barrier. Some follow-through buying has the potential to lift the Gold price to the $1,969-$1,970 region. The momentum could get extended further, which should allow the XAU/USD bulls to surpass an intermediate hurdle near the $1,980 zone and reclaim the $2,000 psychological mark for the first time since March 2022.

Crude Oil Futures: Scope for extra gains near term

CME Group’s flash data for crude oil futures markets noted traders added nearly 16K contracts to their open interest positions on Thursday, extending further the ongoing uptrend. Volume followed suit and went up by around 22.1K contracts after two daily pullbacks in a row.

WTI: Next on the upside comes $82.60

Prices of the barrel of the WTI added to the previous daily upside on Thursday amidst increasing open interest and volume. Against that, there seems to be scope for the continuation of the move with the immediate target at the so far 2023 peak at $82.60 per barrel (January 23).

GBP/USD could retest the 1.2450 area – UOB GBPUSD

In the opinion of Economist Lee Sue Ann and Markets Strategist Quek Ser Leang at UOB Group, GBP/USD could still advance to the 1.2450 zone in the next few weeks.

Key Quotes

24-hour view: “We highlighted yesterday that ‘the bias for GBP is still on the upside but a sustained advance above 1.2445 is unlikely’. However, after rising briefly to 1.2431, GBP pulled back to 1.2345 before rebounding quickly to close little changed at 1.2412 (+0.09%). While upward momentum has waned, there is room for GBP to test 1.2450 first before the risk of a more sustained pullback increases. The major resistance at 1.2500 is not expected to come into view. Support is at 1.2385, followed by 1.2350.”

Next 1-3 weeks: “There is no change in our view from yesterday (26 Jan, spot at 1.2400) that GBP is likely to edge above 1.2450 but as upward momentum is not strong, it remains to be seen if GBP can break 1.2500. Overall, only a breach of 1.2300 (no change in ‘strong support’ level) would indicate that the current mild upward pressure has eased.”

Gold Futures: Downside seems limited

Considering advanced prints from CME Group for gold futures markets, open interest remained choppy and shrank by around 14.3K contracts on Thursday, reversing at the same time the previous daily build. Volume, instead, resumed the uptrend and rose by around 75.5K contracts.

Gold: Decent support emerges around $1900

Thursday’s decline in gold prices was on the back of diminishing open interest and removed strength from an occasional deeper pullback in the very near term. That said, the precious metal is likely to remain supported around the $1900 region per ounce troy for the time being.

07:45
EUR/USD still targets the 1.1000 region – UOB EURUSD

Economist Lee Sue Ann and Markets Strategist Quek Ser Leang at UOB Group suggest EUR/USD remains poised to challenge the key 1.1000 zone in the next few weeks.

Key Quotes

24-hour view: “We highlighted yesterday that ‘upward momentum has improved a tad’ and we held the view that EUR ‘could edge above 1.0950’. However, EUR pulled back from 1.0929 to 1.0848 before rebounding to close at 1.0889 (-0.24%). The price actions appear to be part of a consolidation phase and EUR is likely to trade between 1.0855 and 1.0925 today.”

Next 1-3 weeks: “There is not much to add to our update from yesterday (26 Jan, spot at 1.0920). As highlighted, while upward momentum has not improved much, EUR appears poised to head higher toward 1.1000. In view of the current lackluster momentum, any advance is likely to be slow and grinding. The current mild upward pressure is intact as long as EUR stays above 1.0840. Looking ahead, a breach 1.0840 would suggest that EUR could consolidate first before heading higher at a later stage.”

USD Index adds to recent gains near 102.00 ahead of key US data
  • The index extends the optimism and retargets 102.00.
  • US yields pick up extra pace along the curve on Friday.
  • Final Consumer Sentiment, PCE, housing data next on tap.

The greenback, in terms of the USD index (DXY), maintains the bullish outlook and refocuses on the 102.00 barrier and beyond at the end of the week.

USD Index remains supported near 101.50

The index advances for the second session in a row and keeps the positive performance unchanged in the second half of the week, although a convincing breakout of the 102.00 barrier still remains elusive.

In the meantime, the dollar appears propped up by recent positive results from the US calendar, particularly after the US economy expanded more than initially estimated during the last quarter of 2022 (+2.9%), as per Thursday’s GDP figures.

The improvement in the buck also comes in tandem with extra recovery in US yields across the curve.

In the US data space, inflation figures tracked by the PCE will take centre stage seconded by the final Michigan Consumer Sentiment, Pending Home Sales and Personal Income/Spending.

What to look for around USD

The dollar wakes up and rebounds from recent lows in the 101.50 region, although a sustainable breakout of the 102.00 hurdle still remains to be seen.

The idea of a probable pivot in the Fed’s policy continues to weigh on the greenback and keeps the price action around the DXY subdued. This view, however, also comes in contrast to the hawkish message from the latest FOMC Minutes and recent comments from rate setters, all pointing to the need to advance to a more restrictive stance and stay there for longer, at the time when rates are seen climbing above the 5.0% mark.

On the latter, the tight labour market and the resilience of the economy are also seen supportive of the firm message from the Federal Reserve and the continuation of its hiking cycle.

Key events in the US this week: PCE, Core PCE, Personal Income, Personal Spending, Pending Home Sales, Final Michigan Consumer Sentiment (Friday).

Eminent issues on the back boiler: Rising conviction of a soft landing of the US economy. Prospects for extra rate hikes by the Federal Reserve vs. speculation of a recession in the next months. Fed’s pivot. Geopolitical effervescence vs. Russia and China. US-China trade conflict.

USD Index relevant levels

Now, the index is up 0.12% at 101.93 and the immediate hurdle comes at the weekly high at 102.89 (January 18) followed by 105.63 (monthly high January 6) and then 106.47 (200-day SMA). On the flip side, the breach of 101.50 (2023 low January 26) would open the door to 101.29 (monthly low May 30 2022) and finally 100.00 (psychological level).

NZD/USD once again struggles to find acceptance above 0.6500 amid modest USD strength
  • NZD/USD surrenders modest intraday gains amid the emergence of some buying around the USD.
  • Thursday’s upbeat US macro data fuels hawkish Fed expectations and underpins the greenback.
  • A positive risk tone acts as a headwind for the buck and offers support to the risk-sensitive Kiwi.

The NZD/USD pair continues with its struggle to find acceptance above the 0.6500 psychological mark and seesaws between tepid gains/minor losses on Friday. The pair trades around the 0.6485-0.6480 region during the early European session and remains well within a familiar trading range.

A modest US Dollar strength is seen as a key factor acting as a headwind for the NZD/USD pair, though a generally positive tone around the equity markets limits the downside for the risk-sensitive Kiwi. The greenback draws some support from the mostly upbeat US macro data released on Thursday, which backs the case for the Fed to maintain its hawkish stance for longer. This leads to a further recovery in the US Treasury bond yields and underpins the buck.

The robust economic indicators, meanwhile, boost investors' confidence and acts as a headwind for the safe-haven greenback. Furthermore, the markets still seem convinced that the US central bank will slow the pace of its policy tightening. The CME's FedWatch Tool points to a nearly 90% probability for a smaller 25 bps rate hike at the upcoming FOMC meeting next week. This further contributes to capping the greenback and lends support to the NZD/USD pair.

Traders might also be reluctant to place aggressive bets and prefer to wait for the release of the US Core PCE Price Index - the Fed's preferred inflation gauge. This, along with the US bond yields and the broader risk sentiment, might influence the USD and provide some impetus to the NZD/USD pair. The fundamental backdrop, meanwhile, warrants some caution before confirming that the pair has topped out and positioning for any meaningful corrective pullback.

Forex Today: US Dollar struggles to capitalize on upbeat data ahead of PCE inflation

Here is what you need to know on Friday, January 27:

The US Dollar Index managed to post small daily gains on Thursday following the robust macroeconomic data releases from the US but seems to be struggling to gather further bullish momentum early Friday. The benchmark 10-year US Treasury bond yield holds steady above 3.5% and US stock index futures trade modestly lower on the day after having rallied on Thursday. Ahead of the weekend, the Personal Consumption Expenditures (PCE) Price Index data from the US will be watched closely by market participants. Personal Spending and Personal Income figures for December will also be featured in the US economic docket alongside Pending Home Sales and the University of Michigan's Consumer Sentiment Index (final) for January.

US December PCE Inflation Preview: Is there room for further US Dollar weakness?

The US Bureau of Economic Analysis reported on Thursday that the US economy grew at an annual rate of 2.9% in the fourth quarter. Although this reading came in weaker than the 3.2% expansion recorded in the previous quarter, it surpassed the market expectation of 2.6%. Other data from the US revealed that the weekly Initial Jobless Claims declined to 186K from 192K and Durable Goods Orders increased by 5.6% in December, compared to analysts' estimate of 2.5%. These upbeat numbers, however, had little to no impact on the market pricing of the Fed's rate outlook. According to the CME Group FedWatch Tool, there is still a nearly 70% chance that the Fed will stay on hold after hiking the policy rate by 25 basis points in February and March.

EUR/USD snapped a fix-day winning streak on Thursday and edged slightly lower early Friday. The pair was last seen trading at around 1.0870. European Central Bank (ECB) President Christine Lagarde is scheduled to deliver a speech at 1030 GMT but she is unlikely to comment on the policy since the 'quiet period' has already started.

GBP/USD came under modest bearish pressure and during the Asian trading hours and dropped below 1.2400 after having closed virtually unchanged on Thursday. Reuters reported that British Treasury Secretary Jeremy Hunt will say on Friday that he will tackle the country's weak productivity growth, including by using post-Brexit finance reforms to drive more investment into the economy.

USD/JPY managed to stage a rebound and was last seen trading little changed on the day slightly above 130.00. Japanese Prime Minister (PM) Fumio Kishida said in an appearance on Friday that he acknowledged the Bank of Japan’s (BoJ) December policy decision was an operational tweak to enhance and sustain monetary easing effects smoothly. This comment, however, doesn't seem to be having a significant impact on the Japanese Yen's valuation. Earlier in the day, the data from Japan showed that the Tokyo Consumer Price Index rose to 4.4% on a yearly basis in January from 4% in December as expected.

Gold price turned south amid rising US Treasury bond yields and erased a large portion of its weekly gains on Thursday. At the time of press, XAU/USD was seen trading modestly lower on a daily basis slightly above $1,920.

Bitcoin seems to have gone into a consolidation phase at around $23,000 following Wednesday's decisive upsurge. Ethereum lost nearly 1% on Thursday and continued to stretch lower early Friday. ETH/USD was last seen losing more than 1% on the day at $1,580.

EUR/GBP Price Analysis: Recovery pokes 0.8790 resistance confluence
  • EUR/GBP takes the bids to refresh intraday low after snapping two-day downtrend.
  • Convergence of 200-EMA, immediate descending trend line guards recovery moves.
  • 50% Fibonacci retracement appears the key support for bears to watch.

EUR/GBP bulls struggle to retake control as the cross-currency pair renews intraday high near 0.8785 heading into Friday’s European session.

In doing so, the quote jostles with the 200-bar Exponential Moving Average (EMA) and a downward-sloping resistance line from Wednesday, close to the 0.8785-90 hurdle.

It’s worth noting that the receding bearish bias of the MACD and the RSI (14) attempt to regain the 50 level keeps the EUR/GBP buyers hopeful.

Also luring the EUR/GBP bulls could be the cross-currency pair’s bounce off the 50% Fibonacci retracement level of December 01, 2022, to January 13, 2023 upside, close to 0.8720.

Hence, the quote’s one more attempt to break the two-week-old resistance line, around 0.8840 by the press time, can’t be ruled out. Following that, a run-up to the monthly peak of 0.8897 becomes imminent.

Meanwhile, the EUR/GBP pair’s fresh weakness remains unimportant till it stays beyond the 50% Fibonacci retracement level of 0.8722.

In a case where EUR/GBP remains bearish past 0.8720, the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement level, also known as the golden ratio, could act as the last defense of the buyers around 0.8680.

Overall, EUR/GBP is likely to witness further recovery but the bulls are far from retaking control.

GBP/USD tracks options market signals to snap four-week uptrend GBPUSD

GBP/USD takes offers to refresh intraday low near 1.2380 amid the first loss-making day heading into Friday’s London open. In doing so, the Cable pair not only justifies the broadly firmer US Dollar but also traces the options market signals as it braces for the first negative week in five.

That said, one-month Risk Reversal (RR) of the GBP/USD, a gauge of the difference between the call options and put options, prints the biggest weekly fall since November 18, 2022, while marking -0.160 figures at the latest.

It’s worth noting, however, that the daily RR prints the strongest figure in over a week, to +0.025, as traders remain cautious ahead of the Federal Reserve's (Fed) favorite inflation number, namely the US Core Personal Consumption Expenditures (PCE) – Price Index for December, expected to remain unchanged at 0.2% MoM.

In addition to the options market signal and pre-data anxiety, downbeat catalysts from the UK also weigh on the GBP/USD prices of late.

EUR/USD Price Analysis: Clings to mild losses inside bullish channel, 1.0840 in focus EURUSD
  • EUR/USD holds lower ground near intraday bottom, down for the second consecutive day.
  • Bearish MACD signals, failure to cross 1.0930 hurdle keeps sellers hopeful.
  • Fortnight-old ascending trend line defends bulls beyond 1.0820.
  • Recovery needs validation from weekly hurdle to refresh multi-month high.

EUR/USD licks its wounds near the intraday low surrounding 1.0870 as traders await the key US inflation number during early Friday in Europe. In doing so, the major currency pair drops for the second consecutive day while staying inside a two-week-old rising trend channel formation.

It’s worth noting that the quote’s multiple failures to cross the weekly horizontal resistance near 1.0930 joins bearish MACD signals and downbeat RSI (14) to keep EUR/USD bears hopeful.

However, a clear downside break of the stated bullish channel’s support, close to 1.0840 by the press time, becomes necessary to convince EUR/USD bears.

Following that, a downward trajectory towards the 1.0700-715 region comprising the multiple levels marked in the last six weeks, as well as the 200-SMA level, will be crucial to confirm the EUR/USD bear-run.

Alternatively, a successful break of the 1.0930 horizontal resistance could propel the EUR/USD prices towards the stated channel’s upper line, close to 1.0965 by the press time.

In a case where the EUR/USD buyers keep the reins past 1.0965, the 1.1000 psychological magnet should return to the chart while any further advances may aim for the mid-March 2022 peak surrounding 1.1140.

AUD/USD Price Analysis: Australian Dollar faces heat as market mood sours AUDUSD
  • Investors have turned risk-averse ahead of the US PCE Price Index data.

  • The formation of an Ascending Triangle indicates sheer volatility contraction.

  • The RSI (14) has shifted into the 40.00-60.. range, which indicates an exhaustion in the upside momentum.

The AUD/USD pair has corrected sharply to near 0.7100 in the early European session. The Aussie asset has sensed selling pressure as investors have turned risk averse ahead of the release of the United States Personal Consumption Expenditure (PCE) Price Index data. Meanwhile, an improvement in the safe-haven’s appeal has strengthened the US Dollar Index (DXY).

S&P500 futures has demonstrated a sell-off as further interest rate hikes by the Federal Reserve (Fed) might accelerate recession fears. The 10-year US Treasury yields has added gains further to near 3.53%.

On an hourly scale, AUD/USD is oscillating in an Ascending Triangle chart pattern that indicates a sheer contraction in volatility. The upward-sloping trendline of the chart pattern is plotted from January 25 average price at 0.7061 while the horizontal resistance is placed from January 26 high around 0.7140.

The 20-period Exponential Moving Average (EMA) at 0.7110 has overlapped the asset, which indicates a rangebound acution profile.

It is observed that the Relative Strength Index (RSI) (14) has shifted into the 40.00-60.00 range from the bullish range of 60.00-80.00, which conveys that the bullish momentum has faded now.

Should the asset breaks above January 26 high at 0.7142, Aussie asset will deliver a breakout the Ascending Triangle, which will drive the major towards the round-level resistance of 0.7200. A breach of the latter will expose the asset for more upside toward June 3 high at 0.7283.

On the contrary, a downside move below December 29 low at 0.6710 will drag the major further toward December 22 low at 0.6650 followed by November 21 low at 0.6585.

USD/JPY fades bounce off intraday low as BoJ defends YCC, focus on Fed’s favorite inflation data
  • USD/JPY retreats towards intraday low, reverses the previous day’s corrective bounce.
  • BoJ extends five-year loans against collateral to financial institutions to defend YCC as JGB rallied after Tokyo inflation.
  • US Dollar traces firmer yields ahead of US Core PCE Price Index for December.

USD/JPY prints mild losses around 130.00, after a failed attempt to recover, as the Bank of Japan (BoJ) marks a show of Yield Curve Control (YCC) during early Friday morning in Europe. In doing so, the Japanese central bank extends five-year loans against collateral to financial institutions, from February 01, 2023, to 2028.

The BoJ activity could be linked to a jump in the 10-year Japanese government bond (JGB) yield to 0.50% after Tokyo Consumer Price Index (CPI) refreshed a 42-year high of 4.3% for January.

It’s worth noting that this is the BoJ’s second attempt in January to defend the YCC policy, which in turn suggests further challenges for the ultra-loose monetary policy of the Japanese central bank.

Contrary to the BoJ action, a run-up in the US 10-year Treasury bond yields and the market’s rush towards risk-safety, mainly after Thursday’s upbeat US growth numbers, challenges the USD/JPY bears. On the same line could be the cautious mood ahead of the Federal Reserve's (Fed) favorite inflation number, namely the US Core Personal Consumption Expenditures (PCE) – Price Index for December, expected to remain unchanged at 0.2% MoM.

Against this backdrop, the US 10-year Treasury yields extend the previous day’s recovery to 3.52% while the S&P 500 Futures print mild losses. That said, Japan’s Nikkei 225 drops 0.12% on a day as it snaps a five-day uptrend.

Looking forward, the US Core PCE data will be crucial for the USD/JPY pair as the Fed is ready to announce another 0.25% rate hike in the next week. It should be noted that the downbeat US inflation precursor could confirm the market’s dovish expectations from the US central bank and may exert more downside pressure on the Yen pair.

BoJ deploys funds-supply tool again as JGB yields creep up

Bank of Japan (BoJ) marked another show of the Yield  Curve Control (YCC) on early Friday as it extends five-year loans against collateral to financial institutions, from February 01, 2023, to 2028, after the 10-year Japanese government bond (JGB) yield crept up near the BOJ's 0.5% cap, per Reuters.

The news also states that this is the second time BoJ has made such an offer after ramping up the funds-supply operation this month as a tool to defend its yield control policy.

The jump in the JGB could be linked to a 42-year high inflation data from Japan’s capital Tokyo, published earlier in Asia.

The central bank will conduct the funds-supply operation on Tuesday, according to a statement, reported by Reuters.

USD/JPY retreats towards 130.00

Following the news, USD/JPY fades the bounce off intraday low while declining back to 129.95, down 0.25 on a day by the press time.

USD/CAD Price Analysis: Off multi-month-old support line but upside remains capped below 1.3380
  • USD/CAD portrays corrective bounce from seven-month-old ascending support line.
  • Downbeat oscillators, 38.2% Fibonacci retracement and previous support line guards recovery moves.
  • 100-DMA holds the key to buyer’s conviction while break of 1.3300 could aim for 200-DMA.

USD/CAD picks up bids to pare recent losses around the lowest levels in 11 weeks, mildly bid near 1.3340 heading into Friday’s European session. In doing so, the Loonie pair bounces off an upward-sloping support line from early June 2022.

However, a convergence of the previous support line from mid-November and the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement level of the pair’s April-October upside, near 1.3380 by the press time, restricts USD/CAD pair’s recovery.

Other than the aforementioned key resistance confluence near 1.3380, the bearish MACD signals and the downward-sloping RSI (14) also challenge the Loonie pair’s corrective bounce.

Even if the USD/CAD buyers manage to cross the 1.3380 hurdle, the 100-DMA surrounding 1.3525 will be crucial to stop the upside momentum, a break of which won’t hesitate to challenge the monthly high of near 1.3685.

On the flip side, a daily closing below the stated multi-month-old support line, close to 1.3300 at the latest, could quickly fetch the USD/CAD pair towards the 200-DMA support of around 1.3210.

In a case where the USD/CAD remains bearish past 1.3210, the 1.3200 round figure may act as the last defense of buyers before relinquishing control.

USD/INR Price News: Scales firmly above 81.60 as USD Index recovers, US PCE eyed
  • USD/INR has surpassed the critical hurdle of 81.60 amid sheer recovery in the USD Index.

  • Anxiety ahead of the US PCE data has trimmed the risk appetite of the market participants.

  • Softening US core PCE price index might not surprise investors as core US CPI and PPI were also trimmed.

The USD/INR pair has witnessed a respopsive buying interest after droping to near 81.40. The asset has been scaled above 81.60 and is expected to extend gains, following the footprints of the US Dollar Index (DXY). The risk appetite of the amrket participants has dropped significantly as investors are shifting their focus towards the announcmenet of the interest rate decision by the Federal Reserve (Fed).

But before that, investors will keep an eye over the release of the United States Personal Consumption Expenditure (PCE) Price Index (Dec) data. Reuters estimates show that markets expect the core PCE inflation, which excludes volatile food and energy prices, to rise 0.3% on a monthly basis and forecast the annual rate to decline to 4.4% from 4.7% in November. A decline in the economic data shouldn’t surprise investors as Decembers’ core Producer Price Index (PPI) and Consumer Price Index (CPI) have already dropped significantly.

Volatilty triggered in the market ahead of the Fed’ monetary policy has accelerated selling pressure in the risk-perceived assets. S&P500 futures have dropped sharply amid pessimism that further interest rate hikes by Fed chair Jerome Powell will accelerate recession fears. Firms will be forced to halt their recruitiment process or might look for laying-off employees in anticipation of weaker demand projections.

  • US Dollar’s rebound ahead of Fed’s preferred inflation gauge also weighs XAU/USD.
  • Hopes of US debt ceiling extension, fading recession woes underpin USD strength.
  • Firmer US Core PCE Price Index becomes necessary for the Fed to defend hawkish policy moves and the Gold sellers.

Gold price (XAU/USD) sticks onto the US GDP-inflicted bearish bias as the metal traders await the Federal Reserve’s (Fed) preferred inflation gauge, namely the US Core Personal Consumption Expenditures (PCE) Price Index details for December. In addition to the pre-data anxiety, confirmation of the six-week-old rising wedge bearish chart pattern also keeps XAU/USD sellers hopeful.

The metal reversed from the nine-month high after the upbeat US Gross Domestic Product (GDP) data renewed expectations of a few more rate hikes from the Fed before the policy. The personal consumption and the GDP price index details, however, challenged the hawkish bias and put a floor under the metal. Even so, the early Friday news suggesting the US House Republicans’ nearness to overcoming the debt ceiling woes seemed to have renewed the XAU/USD downside.

It should be noted, however, that the odds of witnessing a softer US inflation and a dovish Fed rate hike are too high, which in turn suggests limited downside room for the Gold price.

Gold Price: Key levels to watch

The Technical Confluence Detector shows that the Gold price stays depressed below the $1,937-38 resistance confluence, comprising the previous weekly high and Fibonacci 61.8% on daily chart.

As a result, the Fibonacci 38.2% on weekly and Pivot Point one-month R3, respectively around $1,920 and $1,917, appear imminent levels to grab for the XAU/USD sellers.

However, a slew of technical indicators encompassing the Pivot Point one-week S1 and S2, as well as SMA 100 on four-hour play, seem to highlight the $1,900 as a tough nut to crack for the Gold bears.

Alternatively, an upside clearance of the $1,938 resistance confluence will need validation from the $1,945 hurdle, including the Pivot Point one-week R1, to convince buyers.

Following that, a run-up towards late March 2022, close to $1,966, appears an easy play for the Gold buyers.

Asian Stock Market: Trades flat amid Fed’s interest rate buzz, USD Index recovers, oil consolidates
  • Asian stocks are trading almost flat as investors await US PCE price index data for further guidance.

  • Japanese stocks have failed to display a power-pack action despite the Tokyo’s inflation met estimates.

  • S&P500 futures have surrendered one-third of gains recorded on Thursday

Markets in the Asian domain are displaying a lackluster perfromance as investors are awaiting fresh development for Federal Reserve (Fed)’s interest rate discussions for further action. S&P500 futures have surrendered one-third of its gains recorded in Thursday’s session as investors have turned anxious ahead of the release of the United States Personal Consumption Expenditure (PCE) Price Index data, which is restricting the upside in the Asian equities. Meanwhile, the downside is being supported by upbeat US Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and Durable Goods Orders data.

At the press time, Japan’s Nikkei225 trades almost flat, Hang Seng eases 0.14%, Nifty50 surrenders 0.54%, KOSPI jumped almost 1%. Meanwhile, Chinese markets are closed on account of Lunar New Year festival.

The US Dollar Index (DXY) has recovered firmly after dropping to near 101.30 in the Asian session. Investors preferred to hide themselves behind safe-haven assets as the release of the US PCE Price Index is expected to trigger sheer volatility in global market. Talking about the monetary policy by the Fed next week, Fed chair Jerome Powell is expected to hike interest rates by 25 basis points (bps) to 4.50-4.75%.

Japanese stocks have failed to display a power-pack action despite the Tokyo’s inflation met estimates. The headline Consumer Price Index (CPI) landed at 4.4% in line with the projections. The core CPI that excludes oil and food prices released at 3.0% higher than the estimates of 2.8%. Meanwhile, Japanese Prime Minister (PM) Fumio Kishida said in an appearance on Friday that he acknowledged the Bank of Japan’s (BoJ) December policy decision was an operational tweak to enhance and sustain monetary easing effects smoothly.

On the oil front, oil price is deomnstrating a lackluster performance as investors might take positions at full capacity after geeting outcome of the OPEC+ panel meeting. Reuters recently reported that the panel is unlikely to alter production levels, given that crude prices recovered sharply in early 2023, and that demand is forecast to surge as the Chinese economy recovers.

EUR/USD bears eye 1.0850 support as US Dollar traces yields ahead of Fed’s preferred inflation EURUSD
  • EUR/USD takes offers to refresh intraday low, extend the previous day’s pullback from nine-month high.
  • US data flashed mixed signals but rebound in Treasury bond yields puts a floor under US Dollar.
  • Absence of ECB speak, cautious sentiment ahead of the key US data exerts downside pressure on Euro pair.

EUR/USD holds lower grounds for the second consecutive day as the US Dollar consolidates weekly losses ahead of the Federal Reserve's (Fed) favorite inflation number during early Friday. That said, the Euro pair renews its intraday low to around 1.0880 while extending the previous day’s pullback from the highest levels since April 2022.

US Dollar Index (DXY) picks up bids to 101.85 as it stretches the late Thursday‘s rebound after the upbeat prints of the US fourth-quarter (Q4) Annualized Gross Domestic Product (GDP), to 2.9% versus 2.6% expected and 3.2% prior. That said, the US 10-year and two-year Treasury bond yields also print the two-day uptrend around 3.51% and 4.19% respectively by the press time.

It should be noted that the downbeat prints of the US Personal Consumption Expenditures (PCE) details challenged the hawkish Fed concerns afterward and probe the EUR/USD bears. On the same line, comments favoring the European Central Bank’s (ECB) 0.50% rate hike ahead of the pre-meeting silence period also put a floor under the Euro pair.

On a different page, hopes of avoiding the US debt ceiling expiry, backed by the House Republicans’ readiness to push it back to September, seem to weigh on the EUR/USD price.

Against this backdrop, the S&P 500 Futures print mild losses while ignoring Wall Street’s gains.

Looking forward, the lack of clarity from the US data joins the hawkish concerns from the ECB to keep EUR/USD buyers hopeful unless the US Core PCE – Price Index for December, expected to remain unchanged at 0.2% MoM, flashes extremely downbeat figures.

Technical analysis

Although a two-week-old bullish channel keeps EUR/USD buyers hopeful, a retreat by the RSI (14) line from overbought territory signals further downside toward the 10-DMA support near 1.0850.

Japan PM Kishida acknowledges BoJ’s Dec policy decision was an operational tweak

Japanese Prime Minister (PM) Fumio Kishida said in an appearance on Friday that he acknowledged the Bank of Japan’s (BoJ) December policy decision was an operational tweak to enhance and sustain monetary easing effects smoothly.

He added that “I am to select an appropriate BoJ governor with an eye on the economy.”

Market reaction

USD/JPY is off the lows, currently trading at 129.75, down 0.34% on the day. The pair is weighed down by hotter Japanese Consumer Price Index (CPI) data.

GBP/USD retreats to 1.2400 as Fed vs. BoE drama looms, US PCE inflation in the spotlight GBPUSD

  • GBP/USD clings to mild losses during the first negative day in three.
  • Mixed US data signals Fed’s dovish hike but chatters over BoE’s rate peak challenge Cable buyers.
  • UK Treasury Secretary Hunt’s hesitance to cut the taxes also weighs on GBP/USD prices.
  • Cautious mood could probe pair traders ahead of US Core PCE Price Index for December.

GBP/USD sellers flirt with 1.2400, after failing to cross the 1.2430 hurdle, as cautious mood ahead of the key US data joins mixed updates from the UK to push back the previous bullish bias surrounding the Cable pair. With this, the quote prints the first daily loss in three as traders collect clues for the next week’s monetary policy meetings of the US Federal Reserve (Fed) and the Bank of England (BoE).

That said, UK Finance Minister Jeremy Hunt’s readiness to boost the growth fails to impress the GBP/USD buyers as the Chancellor defends his stand on the tax hike despite getting heavy criticism from fellow Conservatives. “British finance minister Jeremy Hunt will promise on Friday to tackle the country's weak productivity with post-Brexit finance reforms to boost growth, but he will also stick to the tax rises that have angered some lawmakers in his Conservative Party” reported Reuters.

Alternatively, growing calls for Brexit solutions, at least from the Irish diplomats, seem to help the GBP/USD in countering the bears.

Elsewhere, mixed US data adds to the market’s anxiety ahead of the Fed’s preferred inflation gauge, namely Core Personal Consumption Expenditures (PCE) – Price Index for December. The same seemed to help the US Dollar remain lackluster and weigh on the GBP/USD prices as the odds of the Bank of England’s (BoE) nearness to policy pivot grow stronger.

That said, the US fourth-quarter (Q4) Gross Domestic Product (GDP) marked an annualized growth rate of 2.9% versus 2.6% expected and 3.2% prior. However, downbeat prints of the US Personal Consumption Expenditures (PCE) details challenged the hawkish bias of the Fed afterward.

Amid these plays, the US Treasury bond yields remain firmer but the S&P 500 Futures print mild losses despite the upbeat closing of Wall Street.

Given the market’s indecision, the GBP/USD pair may witness a further sideways move ahead of the US Core PCE – Price Index for December, expected to remain unchanged at 0.2% MoM. However, a strong US inflation signal won’t hesitate to recall the bears.

Technical analysis

A clear break of the descending resistance line from January 18, close to 1.2430 by the press time, appears necessary for the GBP/USD bulls to keep the reins.

USD/CHF Price Analysis: Recovery remains elusive below 0.9255-60 hurdle
  • USD/CHF picks up bids to extend the previous day’s rebound from weekly low.
  • Convergence of 200-SMA, support-turned-resistance line and a descending trend line from early January appears tough nut to crack for bulls.
  • Impending bull cross on MACD, sustained bounce off 23.6% Fibonacci retracement suggest further recovery.

USD/CHF grinds higher past 0.9200, mildly bid while extending the previous day’s rebound from the week’s low during early Friday. In doing so, the Swiss currency pair rebounds from the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement level of its January 06-18 downside, near 0.9160 by the press time.

It’s worth noting that the looming bull cross on the MACD adds strength to the USD/CHF rebound from 0.9160 support, which in turn signals further advances of the pair.

As a result, the 200-SMA, downward-sloping resistance line from early January and the one-week-old previous support line, close to 0.9255-60, appear the key hurdle for the USD/CHF bulls before retaking control.

In a case where the pair rises past 0.9260, the odds of witnessing a run-up toward the monthly high near 0.9410 can’t be ruled out. However, the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement level near 0.9285 and the 0.9300 round figure may act as intermediate halts during the expected rally.

Alternatively, pullback moves need to conquer the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement level surrounding 0.9160 to retake control.

Following that, a downward trajectory towards the monthly low surrounding 0.9085 can’t be ruled out.

It should be observed, however, that the USD/CHF weakness past 0.9085 makes it vulnerable to declining toward the August 2021 low near 0.9020.

USD/JPY Price Analysis: The bears are running into major support ahead of key US data
  • USD/JPY bulls need to commit at the daily support structure near a 61.8% ratio of the recent bullish impulse.
  • Should the US Dollar break higher into the 102s DXY, then the 132.00 area and beyond will be eyed. 

As per the prior analysis, on the back of the Consumer Price Index beat, the Yen indeed travelled in the forecasted trajectory despite there being red news on the US calendar later today:

USD/JPY prior analysis

USD/JPY update

The pair made the correction and subsequent continuation to the downside and is now embarking on a retest of the lows. However, the bears need to get below current support at 129.70. Also, 129.50 is a likely area of firmer support for the day ahead. It all depends now on the US Dollar.

DXY H1 chart

The US Dollar has firmed at the 78.6% and there are prospects of a move higher to crack the trendline resistance and base in the territory above 102.00 having cleared some barriers on Thursday following the US GDP data. In such a scenario, USD/JPY bears will be feeling the heat as we head over to the Federal Reserve interest rate decision on February 1. 

USD/JPY technical analysis, daily chart

Ther price has been trailing in a bearish cycle as per the daily chart above. 

zooming in, we can see that there has been a recent correction to the M-formaiton's neckline and a 61.85 ratio reverison. The price has since stalled into a coil, on the backside of the trendline, likely meaning a breakout is imminent with there being an upside bias.  

The bulls need to commit at the daily support structure near a 61.8% ratio of the recent bullish impulse and should the greenback breakout as illustrated above, then the 132.00 area and beyond will be eyed.

AUD/USD bulls struggle above 0.7100 on mixed Aussie data, US PCE Inflation eyed AUDUSD
  • AUD/USD seesaws around seven-month high, fades upside momentum after five-day winning streak.
  • Mixed details of Australia’s Q4 Export-Import Price Index, PPI probe Aussie pair buyers.
  • Cautious mood ahead of the Fed’s preferred inflation also acts as upside filter.
  • RBA versus Fed drama, easing economic slowdown fears underpin bullish bias.

AUD/USD remains dicey around 0.7120-15 as bulls try hard to defend the five-day winning streak near the highest levels since June 2022 during early Friday.

The Aussie pair’s latest struggle could be linked to the mixed Aussie data and cautious mood ahead of the Federal Reserve’s (Fed) preferred inflation gauge, namely Core Personal Consumption Expenditures (PCE) – Price Index for December.

That said, Australia’s fourth-quarter (Q4) Producer Price Index (PPI) eased to 0.7% QoQ versus the 1.9% expected and prior. Further, the Q4 Export Price Index slumped to -0.9% QoQ compared to 6.7% expected and -3.6% previous readings while Import Price Index rose past 0.1% market forecasts to 1.8% quarterly readings, versus 3.0% prior.

With the mixed details of Aussie inflation components, the previously hawkish bias surrounding the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA), mainly backed by the strong Consumer Price Index (CPI) data, fades amid the mixed sentiment in the markets. Also likely to probe the AUD/USD bulls could be the recently firmer US Treasury bond yields, mainly after the US Q4 Gross Domestic Product (GDP) marked an annualized growth rate of 2.9% versus 2.6% expected and 3.2% prior.

It should be noted, however, that the talks surrounding the Fed’s likely dovish hike, due to the downbeat prints of the US Personal Consumption Expenditures (PCE) details, seem to keep the AUD/USD buyers hopeful. Additionally favoring the pair buyers could be China-inspired optimism in the Asia-Pacific region.

Against this backdrop, the US Treasury bond yields remain firmer but the S&P 500 Futures print mild losses despite the upbeat closing of Wall Street.

Given the pre-data anxiety and the lack of clarity from the second-tier Aussie statistics, AUD/USD traders may witness a sluggish session ahead of the US Core PCE – Price Index for December, expected to remain unchanged at 0.2% MoM.

Silver Price Analysis: XAG/USD meets offers around $24.00 as USD Index rebounds
  • Silver price is looking to position its feet confidently above the breakout region of the Descending Triangle.
  • Advancing 20-EMA indicates that the short-term bullish trend is intact.
  • A bullish range shift by the RSI (14) will trigger the upside momentum.

Silver price (XAG/USD) has sensed barricades after testing strength near the critical resistance of $24.00 in the Asian session. The white metal has faced pressure as the US Dollar Index (DXY) has displayed signs of recovery after dropping to near 101.30. The USD Index might be supported by the market participants as investors might get anxious ahead of the release of the United States Personal Consumption Expenditure (PCE) Price Index (Dec).

Meanwhile, the market sentiment seems negative as the S&P500 futures are displaying decent losses in the Asian session. The 10-year US Treasury yields have climbed to near 3.51%.

Silver price is employing immense efforts to sustain the breakout of the Descending Triangle chart pattern formed on an hourly scale. The downward-sloping trendline of the chart pattern is plotted from January 16 high at $24.50 while the horizontal support is placed from January 11 low at $23.22.

The 20-period Exponential Moving Average (EMA) at $23.88 is aiming higher, which indicates that the short-term bullish trend is intact. Meanwhile, the Relative Strength Index (RSI) (14) is aiming to shift into the bullish range of 60.00-80.00, which will trigger the upside momentum.

Going forward, a decisive move above January 23 high at $24.16 will drive the asset toward January 16 high at $24.50 followed by the psychological resistance at $25.00

On the flip side, a break below January 24 high at $23.74 will drag the asset toward Wednesday’s low at $23.33. A slippage below the latter will further drag the Silver price toward January 23 low at $22.76.

USD/CAD drops towards 1.3300 as firmer Oil joins US Dollar retreat ahead of Fed’s favorite inflation data
  • USD/CAD remains pressured around 10-week low, down for the second consecutive day.
  • US Dollar fades post-GDP rebound amid mixed details.
  • Oil price stays firmer in hopes of more energy demand, softer USD.
  • Cautious mood ahead of US Core PCE Price Index for December probes Loonie pair traders.

USD/CAD takes offers to refresh the intraday low near 1.3315 while keeping the previous day’s south-run to a 2.5-month low during early Friday. In doing so, the Loonie pair cheers broad US Dollar weakness, as well as firmer prices of Canada’s main export item WTI crude oil, ahead of the key US data.

US Dollar Index (DXY) retreats to 101.70, following a corrective bounce off an eight-month low backed by overall upbeat US economics.

On Thursday, the US Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) released the first estimate of the US fourth quarter (Q4) Gross Domestic Product that marked an annualized growth rate of 2.9% versus 2.6% expected and 3.2% prior. On the same line, the Durable Goods Orders jumped 5.6% in December versus 2.5% market forecast and -1.7% upwardly revised prior.

It should be noted, however, that the growth of Personal Consumption Expenditures Prices weakened to 3.2% QoQ in Q4 compared to 4.3% marked forecast and prior readings. Further, Core Personal Consumption Expenditures (PCE) eased to 3.9% QoQ for Q4 from 4.7% previous readings, versus 5.3% expected. As a result, the mixed details of the US data teased DXY bears after an initial favor.

Elsewhere, WTI crude oil remains mildly bid during the three-day winning streak, near $81.35 by the press time, as a softer US Dollar joins hopes of more energy demand from the US and China. Also keeping the commodity buyers hopeful are the expectations of no change in the output cut policy of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) and their allies, including Russia, collectively known as OPEC+, up for a meeting on February 01.

Amid these plays, the US Treasury bond yields remain firmer but the S&P 500 Futures print mild losses despite the upbeat closing of Wall Street.

Looking ahead, the USD/CAD bear’s dominance depends upon the US Core PCE – Price Index for December, expected to remain unchanged at 0.2% MoM, as the Fed’s dovish hike is almost priced-in.

Technical analysis

A clear downside break of the 2.5-month-old ascending support line, now resistance around 1.3345, directs USD/CAD towards November 2022 low near 1.3225.

NZD/USD traders get set for US PCE, eye the Fed as well as key NZ wages next week NZDUSD
  • NZD/USD bulls move in to test mid-week highs. 
  • US red news on the calendar will be key for the pair to end the week. 

NZD/USD is currently trading at 0.6500 and is 0.3% higher at the start of Friday with the bird taking flight on a softer US Dollar ahead of key data for the US session ahead. The pair has rallied from a low of 0.6482 to a high of 0.6506  so far, reaching the highs of Wednesday with the multi-month highs in sight that were made following New Zealand's Consumer Inflation data that held near three-decade highs in the fourth quarter.

New Zealand’s annual inflation stood at 7.2% in the December quarter, higher than market expectations for a 7.1% rise but below the Reserve Bank of New Zealand’s forecast of 7.5% Nevertheless, this was bolstering expectations of less aggressive interest rate hikes in the coming months. There is sentiment for only a 50 basis point rate hike in February after delivering a record 75 basis point increase in November.

Meanwhile, the focus is back on the Federal reserve which will make its interest rate decision on February 1. On Thursday, the US Gross Domestic Product data reading was strong and this will give the members of the Federal Open Market Committee plenty to consider as it enters its policy discussions next week. The advanced Q4 GDP came in slightly stronger than expected at 2.9% vs 3.2% in Q3. 

Analysts at ANZ Bank said that the upcoming personal income, expenditure and deflator data (due out tonight) is arguably more important. ''Consensus expects a 0.1% decline in real personal spending. That would be the first decline in 12 months and the first fall that was not driven by COVID-19 restrictions for quite a few years,'' the analysts argued. ''The core deflator is forecast at 0.3% MoM with annual inflation at 4.4% YoY. That would be the lowest print since October 2021, and while still too high would sit well with the idea of the FOMC entering a more considered phase of the tightening cycle.''

Key data for NZ coming up

Looking ahead, the New Zealand fourth quarter labour market data (out next week) where the wages will be monitored. Analysts at ANZ Bank said that the RBNZ will have a little more scope to dial back the pace of OCR hikes if these wage spirals were to cool as the central bank feels out an appropriate level for the OCR where the MPC can comfortably “watch, worry and wait”. ''We think that speaks to a 50bp hike in February, and a peak of 5.25%.''

Gold Price Forecast: XAU/USD refreshes day’s high above $1,930 ahead of Fed’s preferred inflation gauge
  • Gold price has refreshed its day high at $1,935.00 amid a volatile USD Index.
  • The Fed is expected to hike interest rates by 25 bps to 4.50-4.75% next week.
  • Gold bulls need immense strength to take out pessimism as the higher-low structure has messed up.

Gold price (XAU/USD) has refreshed its day’s high at $1,935.00 in the Asian session. The precious metal picked strength after a minor drop below $1,930.00, which poised a bargain opportunity for gold buyers. The US Dollar Index (DXY) slipped sharply after failing to surpass the critical hurdle of 101.80.

The USD Index dropped to near 101.40 and is likely to remain on tenterhooks ahead of the release of the Federal Reserve (Fed)’s most preferred inflation tool, the United States Personal Consumption Expenditure (PCE) Price Index (Dec). The economic data is seen rising by 0.3% vs. 0.2% reported earlier.

Meanwhile, the risk profile is displaying dubious outcomes as S&P500 futures are showing decent losses after an upbeat Thursday trading session. While the risk-perceived currencies are showing immense strength.

Gold price could face a squeeze in volatility as investors are broadly shifting their focus towards the announcement of the interest rate decision by Fed chair Jerome Powell next week. As per the CME FedWatch tool, the chances of a 50 basis point (bps) interest rate hike are less than even 1%. Therefore, the borrowing rates might escalate to 4.50-4.75%.

Gold technical analysis

Gold price is auctioning in a Rising Wedge chart pattern on an hourly scale, which indicates a volatility contraction on a broader note. The precious metals displayed a responsive buying action after dropping below January 25 low at $1,919.91, recorded a lower low, however the expression of the lower low is weak as buyers jumped in and demonstrated a firmer buying interest. But, one cannot deny the fact that the structure has messed up and the Gold bulls will require immense strength to remain in a positive trajectory.

The Gold price has recovered to near the 20-period Exponential Moving Average (EMA) at $1.933.16. Meanwhile, the Relative Strength Index (RSI) (14) is oscillating in a 40.00-60.00 range, which indicates a consolidation ahead.

US inflation expectations renew multi-day top ahead of US Core PCE Price Index

As markets await the Federal Reserve’s (Fed) preferred inflation gauge, the US inflation expectations per the 10-year and 5-year breakeven inflation rates from the St. Louis Federal Reserve (FRED) renew the multi-day high.

That said, the 10-year inflation expectations per the aforementioned approach refreshed the seven-week high to 2.33% on Thursday. On the same line, the five-year counterpart also rose to the fresh multi-day top, around the highest levels since December 30 while flashing 2.32% by the end of Thursday’s North American session.

It’s worth noting that the upbeat inflation precursors contrast with the mixed US data published the previous day, which in turn highlights today’s Fed’s preferred inflation gauge, namely Core Personal Consumption Expenditures (PCE) - Price Index for December.

That said, the US Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) released the first estimate of the US fourth quarter (Q4) Gross Domestic Product on Thursday that marked an annualized growth rate of 2.9% versus 2.6% expected and 3.2% prior. On the same line, the Durable Goods Orders jumped 5.6% in December versus 2.5% market forecast and -1.7% upwardly revised prior. It should be noted, however, that the growth of Personal Consumption Expenditures Prices weakened to 3.2% QoQ in Q4 compared to 4.3% marked forecast and prior readings. Further, Core Personal Consumption Expenditures eased to 3.9% QoQ for Q4 from 4.7% previous readings, versus 5.3% expected.

Moving on, the US Core PCE Price Index will be important for the market players as a dip in the inflation pressure ease the hawkish Fed concerns and favor the risk-on mood, which in turn exerts additional downside pressure on the US Dollar.

WTI grinds higher past $81.00 on softer US Dollar, cautious optimism over future oil demand
  • WTI clings to mild gains after two-day uptrend, braces for first weekly loss in three.
  • Upbeat US growth numbers, likely inaction from OPEC+ and China reopening underpin bullish bias.
  • Mixed details of US GDP, cautious mood ahead of Fed’s preferred inflation gauge probe Oil buyers.

WTI crude oil price print mild gains as bulls and bears jostle around $81.30 during the third positive day on Friday morning. In doing so, the black gold portrays the market’s cautious optimism surrounding the future energy demand, as well as cheers the US Dollar weakness, while waiting for fresh clues.

That said, the US Dollar Index (DXY) retreats to 101.80, following a corrective bounce off an eight-month low backed by overall upbeat US economics. On Thursday, the US Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) released the first estimate of the US fourth quarter (Q4) Gross Domestic Product that marked an annualized growth rate of 2.9% versus 2.6% expected and 3.2% prior. On the same line, the Durable Goods Orders jumped 5.6% in December versus 2.5% market forecast and -1.7% upwardly revised prior. It should be noted, however, that the growth of Personal Consumption Expenditures Prices weakened to 3.2% QoQ in Q4 compared to 4.3% marked forecast and prior readings. Further, Core Personal Consumption Expenditures eased to 3.9% QoQ for the Q4 from 4.7% previous readings, versus 5.3% expected.

On the other hand, chatters surrounding a jump in China’s festive demand, backed by a report from Bloomberg, also increase the hopes of the higher future demand from the US and China, the world’s top two economies.

It’s worth noting that the talks surrounding the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) and their allies, including Russia, collectively known as OPEC+, also favor the Oil buyers. “The OPEC+ ministerial panel meeting on Feb. 1 is likely to endorse the oil producer group's current output levels, OPEC+ sources said,” reported Reuters.

Alternatively, Reuters poll of global economists raise doubts on the cautious optimism and renew recession woes, which in turn probe the WTI crude oil buyers. On the same line could be the hawkish concerns surrounding the European Central Bank (ECB) and Bank of Japan (BoJ), as well as expected rate hike from the US Federal Reserve (Fed).

Moving on, the Oil traders will pay close attention to the Fed’s preferred inflation gauge, namely Core Personal Consumption Expenditures (PCE) - Price Index for December, expected to remain unchanged at 0.2% MoM, for clear directions. Should the inflation precursor surprises the market, mainly by declining, the WTI may have further upside to track as it will weigh on the odds favoring the Fed’s aggressive rate hikes.

Repeated failures to cross the 100-DMA around $81.65 by the press time, teases WTI crude oil sellers.

EUR/USD Price Analysis: Bulls attempt to crack key resistance ahead of US PCE EURUSD
  • The US Dollar is moving into the 78.6% Fibonacci retracement of Thursday's bullish impulse.
  • EUR/USD is attempting to run higher in a solid correction of the US session's drop. 

The US Dollar was higher against the Euro on Thursday after data showed the US economy maintained a strong pace of growth, however, the tables were soon turned resulting in a rally in  EUR/USD to test the neckline of an M-formaiton on the hourly and 4-houir charts as the following illustrates. 

EUR/USD H1 chart

A test of stops above 1.0950 could be on the cards for the day ahead as we move into another key event on the US calendar.  This could be a move to go high before coming down so the London session will be key. In Asia, we are putting in a potential low that if London takes it out before the US opens, there will be prospects of a continuation lower depending on the outcome of the US data. On Thursday, we had a similar scenario, whereby the Londson session cracked the Asian lows and thus gave the bears a target in the US data following the release and positive vibes for the greenback. 

US Dollar, DXY, technical analysis

The US Dollar is moving into the 78.6% Fibonacci retracement of Thursday's bullish impulse. If the bulls commit to here, then the Euro will struggle to gain much more ground ahead of the US event. A break of the trendline will seal the deal for the Euro's downside.

EUR/JPY slips firmly to below 141.50 as Tokyo Inflation matches consensus
  • EUR/JPY has sensed selling interest, which has dragged it to near 141.00 as Tokyo inflation continues its upside trend.
  • A survey from Bloomberg shows two half-point hikes in February and March, followed by a 25 bps increase later.
  • The US and EU are discussing a possible deal on minerals and vital raw materials.

The EUR/JPY pair witnessed an intense sell-off by the market participants after failing to recapture the critical resistance of 142.00 in the late New York session. The cross has extended its losses after surrendering the critical support of 141.50 to near 141.26 after the release of the Tokyo inflation report.

The annual headline Consumer Price Index has landed at 4.4% in line with the expectations and higher than the former release of 4.0%. Tokyo’s inflation that excludes food and energy prices has landed at 3.0%, higher than the estimates of 2.9% and the prior release of 2.7%. Rising prices of food items and energy are supporting the Consumer Price Index (CPI). Also, the Japanese administration is strongly working on improving wages to keep inflation at the required levels confidently.

The Euro is dancing to the tunes of the European Central Bank (ECB), which will announce the interest rate decision next week. ECB President Christine Lagarde is expected to hike interest rates by 50 basis points (bps) ahead to 2.50%. According to a survey from Bloomberg, the deposit rate will be raised to a peak of 3.25% — from its current level of 2% in three steps. The survey shows two half-point hikes at the February and March meetings, followed by a 25 basis-point increase in May or June.

Inflationary pressures in Eurozone have dropped to a single-digit figure led by softening energy prices but rising wage growth is still posing an upside risk for inflation.  ECB Governing Council member Gabriel Makhlouf cited this week "We need to continue to increase rates at our meeting next week – by taking a similar step to our December decisions," He further added "Our future policy decisions need to continue to be data-dependent given the prevailing uncertainty," as reported by Reuters.

On the trading front, The United States and the European Union are having discussions about a possible deal on minerals and vital raw materials so that the latter would qualify for benefits in US President Joe Biden’s massive new green investment plan.

GBP/USD Price Analysis: Bulls approach 1.2430 key hurdle GBPUSD
  • GBP/USD picks up bids to reverse late Thursday’s pullback.
  • Firmer MACD signals, sustained trading beyond key HMAs keep buyers hopeful.
  • Bears need clear beak of 1.2315 to retake control.

GBP/USD grinds higher past 1.2400 during early Friday as it reverses the previous day’s correction ahead of the key US data. In doing so, the Cable bounces off an upward-sloping support line from Tuesday to print a three-day winning streak, even with mild gains.

Not only the quote’s rebound from the short-term key support line but the bullish MACD signals and successful trading beyond the key Hourly Moving Averages (HMAs) also suggest further upside for the quote.

However, a clear break of the descending resistance line from January 18, close to 1.2430 by the press time, appears necessary for the GBP/USD bulls to keep the reins.

Following that, the 1.2500 and the 1.2600 round figure may act as upside filters before directing the price to the May 2022 peak surrounding 1.2665.

On the flip side, a pullback move may initially falter around a convergence of the 50-HMA and the 100-HMA, near 1.2370 by the press time, a break of which could drag the GBP/USD pair to the aforementioned immediate support line near 1.2355.

In a case where the GBP/USD bears dominate past 1.2355, an ascending trend line from January 12, surrounding 1.2315 as we write, appears the last defense of the Cable pair buyers.

GBP/JPY drops sharply to near 161.00 as Tokyo Inflation meets expectations
  • GBP/JPY has dropped firmly to near 161.00 amid a higher-than-anticipated Tokyo inflation report.
  • Annual headline Tokyo inflation has landed at 4.4% while core CPI is released at 3.0%.
  • The BoE is expected to announce a 50 bps interest rate hike to 4.0% next week.

The GBP/JPY pair has slipped sharply to near 161.00 as the Statistics Bureau of Japan has reported a higher-than-anticipated Tokyo inflation report for January. The annual headline Consumer Price Index has landed at 4.4% in line with the expectations and higher than the former release of 4.0%. Tokyo’s inflation that excludes food and energy prices has landed at 3.0%, higher than the estimates of 2.9% and the prior release of 2.7%.

The economic data indicates an overall boost in Tokyo’s inflation as the price index is not only supported by firmer oil and energy prices but also been supported by rising prices of Durable Goods. Although Tokyo’s inflation is constantly rising, it doesn’t bolster the chances of an exit from an ultra-loose monetary policy by the Bank of Japan (BoJ).

Earlier, Japanese officials considered the context of an exit from expansionary monetary policy, however, BoJ Governor Haruhiko Kuroda confirmed that the central bank “will resolutely keep monetary environment easy.” Kuroda added that “the BoJ aims to regain market functionality by tweaking yield curve control operations while maintaining an easy monetary environment.

Meanwhile, the Pound Sterling bulls are likely to be impacted by commentaries from Bank of England (BoE) policymakers about the first interest rate decision of CY2023 to be taken by BoE Governor Andrew Bailey next week. United Kingdom’s double-digit inflation is likely to call for a higher interest rate hike. According to a poll from Reuters, Investors are mostly betting on another half percentage-point increase to 4.0% and that Bank Rate will peak at 4.5% soon.

Talking about UK’s business conditions, Business confidence in Britain has sunk to its lowest level since the global financial crisis, according to a survey of accountants, amid persistently high inflation and fears that the country is already in a recession. The Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales said Thursday that its latest monitor of business sentiment dropped to an index reading of -23.4, the weakest since 2009, as reported by Bloomberg.

House GOP leaders consider extending debt limit to Sept. 30

House Republican leaders are considering proposing a short-term extension of the federal debt ceiling to delay the risk of a default until Sept. 30, according a person familiar with their deliberations, a step that would allow more time to resolve an impasse with Democrats, Bloomberg reportred.

Key notes

''The strategy is merely an option under consideration, and it isn’t clear whether the Democratic-controlled Senate or White House would agree to briefly putting off a reckoning on the debt ceiling, said the person, who asked not to be identified. Roll Call reported earlier that the idea was being discussed.''

''President Joe Biden lashed out at Republicans on Thursday, saying he would not negotiate on the debt limit and accusing the GOP of threatening the American public with financial turmoil to extract political concessions.''

“I will not let anyone use the full faith and credit of the United States as a bargaining chip,” Biden said at an event with union workers in Springfield, Virginia. “In the United States of America, we pay our debts.”

Market implications

The US Dollar is vulnerable to such sentiment and US President Joe Biden said Republicans’ threat of default risked economic progress the country has made and touted a report earlier in the day that showed faster growth than forecast at the end of 2022.

US Dollar Index pares US GDP inspired gains ahead of Fed’s favorite inflation gauge
  • US Dollar Index reverses the previous day’s corrective bounce off eight-month low.
  • US GDP came in firmer-than-expected but the details appeared fishy and probed DXY bulls afterward.
  • Cautious mood ahead of US Core PCE Price Index for December, FOMC keeps US Dollar traders on the dicey floor.

US Dollar Index (DXY) retreats to 101.80, following a corrective bounce off a multi-day low, as the greenback traders await the key US data during early Friday. In doing so, the US Dollar’s gauge versus the six major currencies fail to defend the previous day’s gains inspired mainly by the US fourth quarter (Q4) Gross Domestic Product (GDP).

That said, the US Q4 GDP marked an annualized growth rate of 2.9% versus 2.6% expected and 3.2% prior. On the same line, the Durable Goods Orders jumped 5.6% in December versus 2.5% market forecast and -1.7% upwardly revised prior. It should be noted, however, that the growth of Personal Consumption Expenditures Prices weakened to 3.2% QoQ in Q4 compared to 4.3% marked forecast and prior readings. Further, Core Personal Consumption Expenditures eased to 3.9% QoQ for Q4 from 4.7% previous readings, versus 5.3% expected.

Although the US GDP and Durable Goods Orders do portray a rosy picture of the world’s largest economy, the underlying details surrounding price pressure seem to challenge the hawkish Fed concerns and pushed back the DXY bulls afterward.

As a result, the US 10-year Treasury yields not only snapped a two-day downtrend but also posted the biggest daily gains in a week while rising to 3.50%. It’s worth noting that the key US equity benchmarks on Wall Street also managed to rise despite mixed earnings reports and firmer yields.

It should be noted that the US House Republicans’ consideration to extend the debt limit to September 30 favored the risk-on mood and also exert downside pressure on the DXY.

Moving on, the Fed’s preferred inflation gauge, namely Core Personal Consumption Expenditures (PCE) - Price Index for December, expected to remain unchanged at 0.2% MoM, will be crucial for the DXY traders amid mixed signals from the previous day’s data. Also increasing importance of the scheduled statistics is the next week’s Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) meeting. In a case where the inflation number surprises the market, mainly by declining, the US Dollar will have hard time to recover.

Technical analysis

An inverted hammer candlestick on the daily US Dollar Index chart joins nearly overbought RSI (14) to tease buyers. However, a clear break of 102.10 appears necessary for the DXY bull’s conviction.

CURRENCY MARKET DEFINITION
The concept of currency market has several definitions:

  • Currency market is the sphere of economic relations that are manifested in the purchase and sale of currency values (foreign currency, securities in foreign currency), as well as operations related to the investment of capital in foreign currency;
  • Currency market is a financial center where currency purchase and sale transactions based on supply and demand for them are concentrated;
  • Curency market is a whole of authorized banks, investment companies, brokerages, exchanges, and foreign banks that perform foreign exchange operations.
  • Currency market is a whole of communications systems that link banks in different countries that conduct international currency transactions.

Simply put, currency market is the market where currency transactions are made, that is, the currency of one country is exchanged for the currency of another country at a certain exchange rate. The exchange rate is the relative price of currencies of two countries or the currency of one country expressed in another country's monetary units.

Currency market is part of the global financial market, where many operations related to the global movement of capital take place.

TYPES OF MARKETS. RUSSIAN AND INTERNATIONAL CURRENCY MARKETS
There are international and domestic currency markets.

Domestic currency market — is a market within a single country.

The international currency market — is a global market that covers currency markets of all countries in the world. It does not have a specific site where trading is carried out. All operations within it are carried out through a system of cable and satellite channels that link the world's regional currency markets. Regional markets today include the Asian (with centers in Tokyo, Hong Kong, Singapore, and Melbourne), the European (London, Frankfurt am Main, and Zurich), and the American (New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles) markets.

Currency trading on the international currency market is carried out on the basis of market exchange rates, which are set on the basis of supply and demand in the market and under the influence of various macroeconomic data. Forex is the international currency market.

Currency markets can also be divided into exchange and over-the-counter markets. Exchange currency market is an organized market where trading is carried out through an exchange—a special company that sets trading rules and provides all the conditions for organizing trading under these rules.

Over-the-counter currency market — is a market where there are no certain trading rules, and purchase and sale operations are not linked to a specific place of trade, as opposed to the case of an exchange.

As a rule, an over-the-counter currency market is organized by special companies that provide services for the purchase and sale of currencies, which may or may not be members of the currency exchange. Trading operations in this market are now carried out mainly via the Internet.

The over-the-counter currency market is much larger than the exchange market in terms of trading volume. The Forex international over-the-counter currency market is considered the most liquid in the world. It operates around the clock in all financial centers of the world (from New York to Tokyo).

CURRENCY MARKET FUNCTIONS
Currency market— is the most important platform for ensuring the normal course of all global economic processes.

The main macroeconomic functions of the currency market are:

  • creating conditions for the subjects of foreign exchange relations to make timely international current and capital payments and thereby promoting the development of foreign trade;
  • providing conditions and mechanisms for the implementation of monetary and economic policy of the state;
  • diversifying foreign exchange reserves;
  • forming the exchange rate under the influence of supply and demand;

NEWS IMPACT
Various currencies are the main trading tool in the currency market. Exchange rates are formed under the influence of supply and demand in the market.

In addition to that, currency rates are influenced by many fundamental factors related to the global economic situation, events in national economies, and political decisions.

News about these factors can be found in various sources:

  • Reports showing a country´s level of economic development.

The more stable an economy is developing, the more stable its currency is. Accordingly, it is possible to predict how the currency will behave in the near future, based on statistical data published in official sources of countries with a certain regularity.
This data includes:

  • GDP
  • unemployment;
  • return on equity;
  • consumer price index;
  • industrial price index;
  • propensity to consume;
  • salaries outside of the agricultural sector;
  • residential construction, etc.

Interest rate level, set by national authorities regulating credit policy, is an equally important indicator. In the European Union, this is ECB–the European Central Bank, in the US, this is the Federal Reserve System, in Japan—the Bank of Japan, in the UK—the Bank of England, in Switzerland—the Swiss national Bank, etc.

The interest rate level is determined at meetings of the national central bank. Then, the decision on the rate is published in official sources. If the central bank of a country reduces the interest rate, the money supply in the country increases, and the national currency depreciates against other world currencies. If the interest rate increases, the national currency will strengthen.

  • Speeches of country leaders, leading economists and analysts.

A speech or even a separate statement by a country's leader can reverse a trend. Speeches on these topics may change the currency exchange rate:

  • analysis of the situation on the currency market;
  • changes in monetary or economic policy;
  • adoption of a budget policy;
  • forecasts of the economic situation, etc.

All this news is published in various sources. Major international news is more or less easy to find in Russian, but news related to the domestic economic policy and the economy of foreign countries is much less common in the Russian press. Mostly, such news is published by the national media and in the language of the country where the news is published.

It is very difficult for one person to follow all the news at once, and they are likely to miss some important event that can turn the whole situation on the market upside down. Guided by our main principle—to create the best trading conditions for our customers—we try to select the most important news from all over the world and publish them on our website.

The TeleTRADE Department of Analytics monitors news on most national and international news sources on a daily basis and identifies those that can potentially affect exchange rates. These are the main news items that are included in our news feed.

In addition, all our clients have free access to the Dow Jones news feed. This is a joint project of Dow Jones Newswires, the world's largest news agency, and the leading Russian news agency Prime-TASS. The news feed is created specifically for currency traders and those who are interested in getting information about the world's currency markets.
