TSLA Analysis: Price Recovers after Disastrous Report
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

We previously wrote that lower vehicle deliveries could lower TSLA's stock price.

And as it became known on Tuesday, Tesla, led by Elon Musk, delivered just 386,810 cars in the first three months of 2024 - 14% below analysts' forecasts, according to Bloomberg. As a result, Tesla shares fell 4.9% that day, extending their 2024 decline to 33%, the worst performance in the Nasdaq 100 Index.

What is the market outlook?

Bullish arguments:
→ After a strong disappointment on Tuesday, the price of TSLA showed signs of stability on Wednesday and Thursday. Since these were bullish candles, and the market was recovering despite the non-bearish gap on Tuesday, this can be interpreted as a sign of demand.
→ From the point of view of technical analysis, the market is supported by the lower border of the downward channel (shown in red). The price forms rebounds from this border, as shown by the arrows.
→ Bloomberg writes about a decrease in the number of short positions after the report on Tuesday. This could be a sign that short position holders do not see any further decline in the price of TSLA and are taking profits.

Bearish arguments:
→ TSLA price is still in the lower half of the downward channel, despite the bullish sentiment in the stock market.
→ Resistance may come from the level of USD 183 per share and the median line of the descending channel.

The US Stock Market Awaits the Publication of NFP And Unemployment Data
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Important events of this week for investors and traders in the US stock market could be the employment news, which will be published tomorrow at 15:30 GMT+3:
→ non-Farm Payrolls (NFP) report for March. According to CNN, analysts expect nonfarm payrolls to rise by 192,500 in March. NFP for February was 275,000, according to FactSet.
→ data on the unemployment rate (Unemployment Rate). According to ForexFactory, the unemployment rate is expected to remain unchanged at 3.9%.

The state of the labour market is under close scrutiny by the Fed and could provide valuable insight into the prospects for interest rate cuts. The release of the unemployment rate and NFP numbers for March could be an example of what is called "bad news is good news" on Wall Street. After all, if the data shows a deterioration in the labour market, then this will be an argument for the Fed to lower interest rates, which in turn could lead to an increase in the stock market.

Indeed, according to CNN, Fed Chairman Jerome Powell said last week that a weakening labour market would be a reason to cut interest rates.

USD/JPY Analysis: Calm Before the Storm?
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

The USD/JPY chart today shows that the rate has stabilized at 152 yen per US dollar. But can we say that there is calm in the market?

Hardly.

First, it is important to note that in 2023 there was a sharp reversal of trend around the 152.00 level due to intervention by the Japanese authorities, which supported an excessively weak yen. Therefore, crossing this psychological threshold can serve as a trigger for a new intervention.

Secondly, Reuters writes about a growing volatility premium in the options market, which confirms the growing likelihood of a strong trend in the near future.

Gold Price XAU/USD Sets Another All-time High
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

The XAU/USD gold chart today indicates that the price of the metal has exceeded USD 2,250 per ounce.

Causes:
→ Geopolitical tensions. Military conflicts in Ukraine and the Middle East do not subside, the threat of terrorist attacks is growing, and new hot spots may appear on the world map.
→ Concerns about a new round of inflation due to rising commodity prices.

In both cases, gold acts as a safe-haven asset.

The Dollar Resumes Growth after the Release of Positive Macroeconomic Statistics
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Weak market volatility associated with the celebration of Catholic Easter and a strong foundation from the United States contributed to a sharp strengthening of the dollar against commodity and European currencies. Thus, the pound/US dollar currency pair is trading below the key support at 1.2600, euro sellers are preparing to test 1.0700, and the US dollar/yen pair is as close as possible to recent extremes at 152.00.

GBP/USD
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
The data on the US manufacturing business activity index for March published yesterday was at the level of 50.3 points, which significantly exceeded the analysts' forecast of 48.3 points. The released data reduces the likelihood of a reduction in the base interest rate at the next Fed meeting and naturally leads to strengthening of the American currency in almost all directions.

The GBP/USD pair traded between 1.2700 and 1.2600 for about a week. Yesterday, sellers of the pound were stronger than buyers and the pair lost about 100 pp in just a couple of hours. If the current mood in the market continues, the price on the GBP/USD chart may test the low of February of this year at 1.2518. We can consider canceling the downward scenario if we confidently consolidate above 1.2700.

Today at 11:30 GMT+3, we are waiting for data on the volume of consumer lending from the Bank of England for February. Also at the same time, the manufacturing business activity index (PMI) for March will be published.

High Hopes for Amazon as Analysts Look at Earnings Call Potential
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Amazon, one of the most successful e-commerce businesses in the world, entered its 30th year in 2024 with its relatively humble yet ingenious origins as an online bookseller based out of Jeff Bezos' garage in Washington State, a distant memory.

Today's Amazon is completely unrecognizable. A global giant among Silicon Valley's big-cap internet moguls, dominating the internet services and retail delivery sectors in most markets worldwide.

Not resting on its laurels, Amazon, one of the 'Magnificent 7' tech stocks, has been actively sharpening its remit recently, with a commitment to the development of AI being one of the areas of innovation that the company is now heavily invested in.

Amazon's stock has been doing very well so far this year, and when the US market closed yesterday after its first trading day following a long holiday weekend, trading appeared to continue where it left off on Thursday, March 28, which was the final trading day of the first quarter of this year, with Amazon stock being at its highest value since November 2021 when it spiked to just over $183 per share before climbing down shortly afterwards.

The tech stock doldrums of 2022 ensued, and Amazon, despite its evergreen parcel delivery enterprise being its distinguishing factor from other internet and high technology giants, was not immune. The lull in value during that period was sustained, but as investor appetite for tech stocks came back, Amazon began to grow its share price once again.

This year so far, Amazon stock has been one of the top risers, and according to FXOpen pricing, Amazon closed yesterday at a lofty $180.38, which represents the highest point since it began this particular rally on January 9, at which point it was trading at $127.22. That is a considerable increase within the space of just under two months.

US Dollar Strengthens after Strong ISM Manufacturing PMI Report
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Yesterday, news was published on the state of the US manufacturing sector, namely the Purchase Manager Index (PMI), which is calculated by The Institute for Supply Management (ISM).

The data turned out to be strong: fact = 50.3, forecast = 48.5, a month earlier = 47.8.

Since readings above 50 indicate manufacturing growth, yesterday's news showed the health of this sector in the US. Consequently, it reduced the pressure on the Fed to cut interest rates.

And since the current tight monetary policy may last longer, the value of the US dollar has increased relative to other financial assets:
→ Regarding currencies. For example, the NZD/USD rate set a minimum of 2024.
→ Regarding cryptocurrencies. The decline in BTC/USD that began yesterday led to the Bitcoin rate dropping to USD 66.5k today.

5 Stocks To Consider For April 2024
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

As if it were comparable to the blink of an eye, the first quarter of 2024 is now complete.

It would perhaps be fair to consider that this year's first three months were relatively uneventful compared to the undulations of the past few years in which rampant inflation across many Western nations, tech stock volatility, US bank collapses, a need to raise the debt ceiling, and the demise of FTX have punctuated the news.

By contrast, this year began with a steady rebuilding of the fiscal structure, a noticeable acceleration in the value of major stock market indices, and even talk of a reduction in interest rates by central banks across Europe and North America.

As we head into the second quarter of the year, it is earnings season, and the large, publicly listed companies whose stock is listed on the prominent stock exchanges are about to reveal their corporate performance for the beginning of this financial year.

E-mini S&P-500 Start Quarter at Historic Highs
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

On Friday, data from the Personal Consumption Expenditures (PCE) index was published. According to Trading Economics, the PCE price index report showed that inflation is slowing. On a monthly basis, it grew by 0.3% in February, forecast = 0.4%, a month ago = 0.4%.

Following the release of the PCE index, Jerome Powell stated that:
→ the Fed is in no hurry to cut interest rates;
→ the latest PCE inflation data is in line with what the Fed wants to see.

Market participants received a portion of fundamental information positively. And since Friday was a day off on the stock market, the news is taken into account by the price on Monday.

The E-mini S&P-500 opened with a gap this morning, and at a historical peak. The S&P 500 rose 10.2% in the first quarter, its best performance since 2019. The bull run is fueled by both expectations of Fed interest rate cuts and enthusiasm surrounding the adoption of AI.

The US Dollar Declines against Major World Currencies
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

The US dollar is weakening against the euro, yen and pound. In February, the core personal consumption expenditure index fell from 0.5% to 0.3% on a monthly basis and from 2.9% to 2.8% on an annual basis, justifying preliminary estimates. Thus, the slowdown in inflationary pressure continues at a steady pace, convincing investors that the US Federal Reserve will keep interest rates the same in May and begin lowering them in June. In addition, personal income increased by 0.3%, less than expected by 0.4%, and expenses by 0.8%, significantly exceeding the expected 0.5%: this may mean continued risks of rising consumer prices, but for now investors don't pay any attention to these statistics.

EUR/USD
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

The EUR/USD pair is moving in a narrow range around the 1.0780 level. Immediate resistance can be seen at 1.0860, a break higher could trigger a rise towards 1.0880. On the downside, immediate support is seen at 1.0768, a break below could take the pair towards 1.0750.

Market activity is reduced because Friday was a public holiday in most eurozone countries, so financial institutions are closed and investor activity is reduced. However, market participants were monitoring comments from European Central Bank (ECB) officials regarding its future actions. Thus, the head of the Bank of France, François Villeroy de Galhau, said that the regulator will probably start with a moderate reduction in interest rates, but it does not matter much whether this happens in April or June. The official added that after the first cut in borrowing costs, it would not necessarily continue at the next ECB meeting. This position coincides with the expectations of most economists surveyed by Reuters.

Based on the technical analysis of EUR/USD, a new downward channel has formed at the lows of last week. It is now in the middle of the channel and may continue to decline.

TSLA analysis: Price Returns to Above the $170 Level, But for How Long?
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

After forming a low of the year on March 14, the TSLA share price managed to rise above the USD 170 level — investors reacted positively to Tesla’s decision to increase prices for electric vehicles in the US and Europe.

However, the TSLA stock market remains under pressure:
the TSLA price performs noticeably worse than the S&P 500 index;
the price forms a downward channel (shown in red);
Goldman Sachs analysts cut their forecast for Tesla shares to USD 190 from USD 220 for the next 12 months due to problems with production and sales.

Yahoo writes that investors are not happy with Musk's attitude. The fall in Tesla shares could quickly stop if the company gets a “real CEO” or Musk changes his position and returns to work and positively promoting the brand.

Correction in Crypto Markets: BTC/USD Rate Drops to $60,000
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

On March 18, we wrote that bears became more active near the $70,000 level.

As the BTC/USD chart shows, today the price of Bitcoin is already close to the psychological level of USD 60k, while the price of Ethereum is close to USD 3,000.

According to MarketWatch, experts consider the decline to be a correction that is “long overdue” as part of an upward trend. According to Fundstrat, Monday saw net outflows from BTC ETFs for the first time since March 1, amounting to about $154.3 million.

What's next?

From a technical analysis point of view, the price of Bitcoin, given an increase of approximately 90% from point A (around USD 38.8k) to point B (around USD 73.4k), a normal correction of 50% indicates the prospect of a decline to the area of USD 56.1k.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

On the hourly chart of EUR/USD at FXOpen, the pair struggled to clear the 1.0960 resistance zone. The Euro started a fresh decline and traded below the 1.0900 support zone against the US Dollar.

The pair even declined below 1.0870 and tested the 1.0835 zone. A low was formed near 1.0834 and the pair is now correcting losses. On the upside, the pair is now facing resistance near the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the 1.0906 swing high to the 1.0834 low at 1.0870.

There is also a key bearish trend line forming with resistance at 1.0870. The next key resistance is near the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the 1.0906 swing high to the 1.0834 low at 1.0890.

The main resistance is 1.0905. A clear move above the 1.0905 level could send the pair toward the 1.0960 resistance. An upside break above 1.0960 could set the pace for another increase. In the stated case, the pair might rise toward 1.1020.

If not, the pair might resume its decline. The first major support on the EUR/USD chart is near 1.0835. The next key support is at 1.0820. If there is a downside break below 1.0820, the pair could drop toward 1.0785. The next support is near 1.0750, below which the pair could start a major decline.

A Yen For Volatility: US Dollar Surges as Japan Ends 8 Years of Negative Rates
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Eight long years have passed since the Bank of Japan introduced its controversial yet pioneering attempt to encourage spending in what has become an ultra-conservative economy, which has experienced a sustained period of stagnation.

In 2016, Japan's central bankers decided to introduce negative interest rates, a term which refers to the maintaining of artificially low interest rates in order to encourage businesses and private individuals to borrow money and therefore spend, which would in turn increase the size of the Japanese economy and result in economic growth.

During that eight-year period, times have not been easy in Japan with regard to its national economic situation, and despite the country having not invoked any lockdowns or restrictions in the way that many Western nations did four years ago and a longstanding series of challenges faced the Japanese fiscal situation.

Over the course of time, Japan's demographics have changed, and it has the longest life expectancy in the world; therefore, a large proportion of retired people and a conservative younger generation have appeared to save money rather than spend or invest it.

Many analyses consider that the negative interest rate policy was invoked to encourage such people to withdraw their savings from bank accounts and either spend it or invest it in other areas, such as property or business ventures.

Just six months after the introduction of the policy in 2016, the Japanese economy had not grown, and in some reports there are opinions which state that Japan's authorities can now look back on 25 years of failed economic stimulus attempts.

That is a harsh criticism, however it appears that Japan's central bank has given up on the most recent one and in a landmark decision has today put an end to eight years of negative interest rates.

This means a return to standard market rates, and the result in the currency markets is noticeable.

The US dollar has made gains against the Japanese Yen during today's trading session, beginning with the Asian market.

The USDJPY pair is now trading at 150.424 Yen to the US Dollar, which puts it back at the high point it was at when March began.

The Dollar Strengthens in Anticipation of the Fed's Rate Decision
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

The current five-day period is as full as possible with important fundamental data. This morning, a meeting of the Bank of Japan and the RBA took place. Tomorrow, the Fed will announce its decision on the rate, and on Thursday, market participants expect a verdict from the Bank of England. Decisions by officials may determine the pricing of major currency pairs in the coming months. After all, most currency pairs have been trading in narrow flat corridors for a long time, and an increase in volatility can lead to the start of new medium-term trends.

GBP/USD
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

A week ago, pound buyers managed to update the high of December last year at 1.2830. The price almost reached 1.2900, but the pound bulls failed to continue the upward movement and test the psychological resistance level at 1.3000. The pullback from 1.2900 contributed to the formation of a reversal combination for selling bearish harami on the w1 timeframe. Technical analysis of GBP/USD shows that if this formation continues, the price may decline to recent extremes at 1.2530-1.2500. We can consider cancelling the downward scenario if we confidently consolidate above 1.2900.

Tomorrow, pay attention to the release of data on the consumer price index in the UK for February. At 12:00 GMT+3, the housing price index for the past month will be released.

Bank of Japan Ends the Era of Negative Interest Rates
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

The Bank of Japan has not raised interest rates for 17 years. For 8 years, it was in the negative zone.

But today there was a dramatic shift in monetary policy — the Bank of Japan announced a decision to increase the interest rate from -0.1% to 0.1%.

The central bank also abandoned yield curve control (YCC), a policy that had been in place since 2016 and capped long-term interest rates near zero.

Considering the scale of the decisions taken, the reaction of the yen exchange rate relative to other currencies turned out to be moderate. This is because the plans of the Bank of Japan have been discussed for a long time, including in official sources of information. Therefore, it is acceptable to assume that participants in the currency markets have already laid down the probability of today's event.

In fact, the yen has weakened as a result, but this may only be an initial reaction in which markets are reassessing the impact of the Bank of Japan's decision over a range of short-term to long-term horizons.

US Dollar Shows Record Weekly Gain Since Mid-January
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

The US dollar strengthened on Friday ahead of a series of highly anticipated central bank meetings next week, including the US Federal Reserve. The dollar rose 1.3% for the week, its biggest gain since mid-January, after a mixed batch of data showed the U.S. economy remained resilient. That suggests the Federal Reserve could keep interest rates high for longer or reduce its planned number of rate cuts this year. Data on Friday showed a strong US manufacturing sector, with output rebounding 0.8% last month after a downwardly revised 1.1% decline in the previous month. The University of Michigan's preliminary overall consumer sentiment index for the month was 76.5, down from a final reading of 76.9 in February. The Fed's measure of annual inflation expectations remained unchanged at 3.0% in March. The five-year inflation forecast also remained stable at 2.9% for the fourth month in a row, according to the survey. The US Federal Reserve meeting will take place on Wednesday and analysts do not expect officials to make changes to monetary policy, but expect to receive forecasts for borrowing costs for the current year. The market continues to price in at least three 25 basis point interest rate cuts before the end of 2024, the first of which could come in June.

EUR/USD
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

The EUR/USD pair shows mixed dynamics, remaining close to 1.0885. Immediate resistance can be seen at 1.0899, a break higher could trigger a move towards 1.0963. On the downside, immediate support is seen at 1.0872, a break below could take the pair towards 1.0840.

Market activity remains subdued at the beginning of the week as traders are in no hurry to open positions in anticipation of the emergence of new drivers. Today the eurozone will publish February inflation statistics. The forecasts do not assume any changes in the consumer price index compared to previous data. On Thursday, March 21, trading participants will evaluate March data on business activity in the eurozone, as well as the ECB's monthly economic report, which may clarify the prospects for the regulator's monetary policy for the current year. Forecasts for business activity indices suggest an increase in the indicator from 46.5 points to 47.0 points in the manufacturing sector and from 50.2 points to 50.5 points in the services sector.

Technical analysis of EUR/USD shows that a new downward channel has formed based on last week’s lows. Now the price is in the middle of the channel and may continue to decline.

Tesla Stock Hits a Low Point as Musk Sues Openai - Is This Year a Total Write-Off?
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Occasionally during the course of industrial progress, there is a maverick; a voice that is known for continual disruption and maintaining a high-profile position whilst engaging in such disruption.

The figure of this decade is Elon Musk, a self-starter whose bluster and direct prose cast him as one of the world's most outspoken individuals, as well as a business magnate who manages to influence the financial markets at the click of a button.

From generating unprecedented waves in the cryptocurrency markets in 2021 to causing the motor industry to break with its 130-year-old tradition of using internal combustion as a main method of motive power, Elon Musk's market-making abilities are in line with his disruptive commentary and social media activity.

This set of characteristics has led to volatile stock in the most famous company, Tesla, founded and led by Elon Musk. With regard to such volatility, the start of this week is no exception.

Tesla stock is currently nosediving and has reached a low point of $162.20 by March 14. At the close of the US trading session on Friday, March 15, Tesla stock had retrieved some of the losses and rested at the mid-$163 range, however, this represents a mere slowing down of the plunging of Tesla stock prices because ever since the beginning of this month, Tesla stock has been depreciating at a considerable rate.

BTC/USD Analysis: Bears Have Become More Active Near the $70,000 Level
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

On February 26 (A), a strong bullish impulse started in the Bitcoin market. Its trajectory is visually described by a blue line. The price of bitcoins developed along it — this can be interpreted in such a way that market participants agreed that the value of the cryptocurrency was increasing.

If the price of Bitcoin deviated from the blue line, it was only for a short period of time. For example, to pierce the psychological level of USD 60,000 on March 5th.

However, the bullish momentum changed on March 15th, and this can be seen on the BTC/USD chart today:
→ the blue line began to work as resistance (shown by the first arrow);
→ the level of USD 70,000 also began to act as resistance (shown by the second arrow).

WTI Oil Price Reaches 4-month High
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

The International Energy Agency (IEA) has once again raised its forecasts for global oil demand in 2024. While the agency's forecast pointed to the prospect of an oil surplus in 2023, its analysts now believe that the world will experience a shortage of oil in the second half of 2024.

Among the reasons for the shortage:
→ limitation of oil production by OPEC+ countries, it is 2 million barrels per day until the middle of the year. And it may be extended, as Bloomberg writes — the decision is scheduled for June 1;
→ changes in logistics routes due to Houthi attacks on tankers in the Red Sea.

Also, a bullish impulse for the price of WTI oil can be provided by the geopolitical situation, which remains tense.

USD Strengthens Sharply after Inflation News
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Yesterday's publication of producer price indices in the US was a surprise:
→ Core PPI: actual = 0.3%, expected = 0.2%.
→ PPI: actual = 0.6%, expected = 0.3%.

Higher producer prices indicate that high inflation may remain longer than expected. And this reduces the likelihood of the Fed easing monetary policy. Markets now price the likelihood of a Fed rate cut in June at 60%, up from 74% a week earlier, according to CME's FedWatch tool.

The reaction to the news was that the dollar strengthened — there was a bearish day on the stock market, and currencies paired with the USD also fell in price.

Thus, the EUR/USD price decrease yesterday was about 0.55% per day.

On March 11, we wrote that the price of EUR/USD may fall to the lower border of the channel (shown in blue) from the 8-week peak (B). In fact, the price made a bearish breakout of this channel.

Market Analysis: Gold Price Rally Takes Break, Crude Oil Price Surges
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Gold price rallied above $2,180 before correcting lower. Crude oil price is rising and it could climb further higher toward the $82 resistance.

Important Takeaways for Gold and Oil Prices Analysis Today

  • Gold price failed to clear the $2,200 resistance and corrected lower against the US Dollar.
  • A key bearish trend line is forming with resistance at $2,170 on the hourly chart of gold at FXOpen.
  • Crude oil prices are moving higher above the $80.00 resistance zone.
  • There is a connecting bullish trend line forming with support near $80.60 on the hourly chart of XTI/USD at FXOpen.


Gold Price Technical Analysis
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

On the hourly chart of Gold at FXOpen, the price was able to climb above the $2,150 resistance, as mentioned in the previous analysis. The price even broke the $2,180 level before the bears appeared.

The price traded close to the $2,200 zone before there was a downside correction. There was a move below the $2,180 pivot zone. The price settled below the 50-hour simple moving average and RSI dipped below 50. Finally, it tested the $2,150 zone.

The price is now consolidating losses near the $2,160 level. Immediate resistance on the upside is near the $2,166 level or the 50% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $2,179 swing high to the $2,152 low.

The next major resistance is near a key bearish trend line at $2,170. It is close to the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $2,179 swing high to the $2,152 low.

An upside break above the $2,170 resistance could send Gold price toward $2,180. Any more gains may perhaps set the pace for an increase toward the $2,200 level. If there is no recovery wave, the price could continue to move down.

Initial support on the downside is near the $2,164 level. The first major support is $2,150. If there is a downside break below the $2,150 support, the price might decline further. In the stated case, the price might drop toward the $2,132 support.

US500: The Market Has Been Growing without Corrections by 2% for 266 Consecutive Trading Sessions
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

The S&P 500 remains in its longest rally since 2018 without a decline of at least 2%, according to data compiled by Bloomberg; analysts note that there hasn't been a correction of this size in 266 trading sessions.

The positive sentiment of market participants is due to:
→ the prospect of lowering interest rates by the Federal Reserve;
→ enthusiasm for AI and its positive impact on economic development.

However, although the fundamental background is strong, current estimates of the US500 index may be overestimated — in fact, this is the essence of the correction.

USD/JPY: Analysts Adjust Forecasts for the Strengthening of the Yen
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Since the beginning of 2024, the USD/JPY price has been in an uptrend (as shown by the blue channel), but when the rate exceeded the psychological level of 150 yen per US dollar, market sentiment changed. This was due to expectations that the Bank of Japan would take interest rates out of negative territory — and statements from officials gave clear indications of this possibility.

Expecting a tightening of monetary policy, the yen sharply strengthened against the dollar, and a bearish A→B impulse formed on the USD/JPY chart. However, having reached the level of 147 yen per US dollar (and dropped slightly below it), the market has stabilized. Moreover, we see some recovery: today, the USD/JPY price is trading around 147.8.

Major Currency Pairs Consolidating after the Release of US Inflation Data
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

The publication of data on the basic consumer price index in the United States contributed to sharp fluctuations in the foreign exchange market. Thus, the EUR/USD currency pair retested the important level of 1.0900, buyers of the GBP/USD pair did not hold 1.2800 as support, and the USD/JPY pair was sandwiched between 148.00 and 147.00. At the same time, commodity currencies reacted more calmly to US inflation data and continue to trade in rather narrow flat corridors.

GBP/USD
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Weak data on industrial production in the UK for January and an increase in the unemployment rate to 3.9% against the forecast of 3.8% did not allow buyers of the pound/dollar pair to develop a full-fledged upward trend. If on the GBP/USD chart the range of 1.2820-1.2800 retains its support status, the price may continue to rise in the direction of 1.3100-1.3000. Cancellation of the upward scenario can be considered when moving below the alligator lines on higher time frames.

From the point of view of fundamental analysis, today at 15:30 GMT+3, it is worth paying attention to the publication of data on the producer price index (PPI) in the US for February. Also at the same time, the core retail sales index for the same period will be published.

GBP/USD: Bulls Show Resilience amid Inflation and GDP News
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Yesterday important data on inflation in the United States was published. It caused a significant spike in volatility in financial markets, even though the values were in line with expectations. CPI in monthly terms: actual = 0.4%, forecast = 0.4%, a month ago = 0.3%, a year ago = 0.4%.

And today news came out about UK GDP in monthly terms, which also corresponded to expectations: fact = +0.2%, forecast = +0.2%, a month ago = -0.1%.

It is noteworthy that in both cases the first reaction was a fall in the price of GBP/USD, but then a recovery followed — this is a manifestation of the stability of demand.

Today Is an Ethereum Update. ETH/USD Is Above $4,000
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

An update is scheduled for the Ethereum network today, approximately at 16:55 GMT+3.

The update is called Dencun and is the biggest code change since April 2023, when the Shapella update was implemented.

Dencun aims to reduce fees on the growing array of ancillary networks running on top of Ethereum, called layer 2 (L2) “aggregates.” The changes involve “proto-dunksharding” technology, which is intended to improve the blockchain’s ability to process data from L2 networks.

It is believed that the implementation of the update will give impetus to the development of projects built on auxiliary networks. On the other hand, there is a risk of failures. Although it is worth noting that Dencun was deployed three times on test networks, and each time there were no problems.

On the hourly chart of GBP/USD at FXOpen, the pair started a fresh decline from the 1.2890 zone. The British Pound traded below the 1.2820 zone against the US Dollar.

A low was formed near 1.2746 and the pair is now attempting a recovery wave. There was a break above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the 1.2893 swing high to the 1.2746 low.

The next major support is near the 1.2700 zone, below which the pair could test 1.2665. Any more losses could lead the pair toward the 1.2550 support.

The US Currency Is Consolidating ahead of the Release of Inflation Data
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

A rather weak US employment report published last week contributed to the US dollar's decline in almost all areas. Thus, the USD/JPY pair lost more than 150 pp in just a couple of hours, the pound/US dollar pair tested important resistance at 1.2900, and euro/US dollar buyers managed to strengthen above 1.0900.

USD/JPY
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

The weak fundamentals from the US are bolstering investor confidence that the Fed will begin cutting interest rates later this year. And although recent statements by the head of the American regulator, Jerome Powell, can hardly be called dovish, market participants prefer short-term sales of greenbacks.

The USD/JPY currency pair fell to 146.50 at the end of last week. Yesterday, buyers of the pair managed to return the price above 147.00, but the full development of an upward correction has not yet been observed. If the pair manages to consolidate above 148.00, the price may test resistance at the alligator lines on the weekly timeframe near the range of 149.50-149.00. An update to the recent low on the USD/JPY chart could trigger a collapse to the extremes of the current year at 146.00-145.80.

Today's news on the basic US consumer price index for February will be important for the pair's pricing.

Australian Dollar Volatility Ends in Lull Ahead Of US Data

The Australian Dollar has recently been displaying signs of volatility, with its price varying considerably against the US Dollar over the past few months.

From a low point in October last year, the AUDUSD pair went on a sudden rally, which lasted until December before beginning to fall flat during the course of January. As February drew to a close, the AUDUSD pair began to rise in value again, reaching 0.66251 on March 4, according to FXOpen charts.

Over the past week, the Australian Dollar has been a bit dormant in its movements against the US Dollar; however, this morning's trading session in Australia and across the Asian market session began to demonstrate that some renewed interest is beginning to be shown in the Australian Dollar as the Australian economy begins to look a bit stronger.

This morning as the European markets begin to open, activity from the Australian market is being analysed and one matter of interest is that the Australian S&P index along with the ASX 200 which is an index featuring 200 well capitalised stocks on Australia's ASX exchange, showed improvement over previous performances which is being mooted as a potential strengthening factor for the Australian Dollar.

Today in Australia, financial services executives have held meetings to discuss the GDP within Australia for the fourth quarter of 2023, with nothing out of the ordinary having surfaced and data in line with expectation; however, there is anticipation regarding the forthcoming monetary policy announcements from the US Federal Reserve which may affect the value of the AUDUSD, and forthcoming CPI data in the United States for February looks set to meet expectations at 3.1, identical to that for January.
