The Dollar Is Strengthening, Driven by Employment Data
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Yesterday's US labour market data indicated an increase in employment, dampening hopes of an interest rate cut. The Labor Department stated on Thursday that initial claims for state unemployment benefits fell by 16,000 to 187,000, seasonally adjusted, for the week ending January 13, which is the lowest level since September 2022 and below economists' expectations of 207,000. Separate data from the US Department of Commerce showed that single-family housing construction slowed in December after a previous period of growth. The low supply in the secondary market continues to support new construction. Throughout the day, the US will release data on existing home sales, which may increase by 0.8-0.9%, equivalent to around 3.82 million units sold, as well as the University of Michigan Consumer Confidence Index, with forecasts suggesting a slight increase from 69.7 points to 70.0 points.

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

The EUR/USD pair is decreasing after an earlier rise. According to EUR/USD technical analysis, immediate resistance can be seen at 1.0906, and a breakthrough could trigger an upward move to 1.0958. On the other hand, the nearest support is visible at 1.0844, and a breakthrough below may lead the pair to 1.0800. The euro's exchange rate has remained nearly unchanged as investors digest the December meeting minutes of the European Central Bank. According to reports on Thursday, ECB policymakers expressed confidence in achieving the inflation target but acknowledged numerous risks, justifying the continuation of a stable policy and high borrowing costs. The ECB kept interest rates unchanged at the meeting and emphasised the absence of upcoming rate hikes. With the focus shifting to the ECB's January policy decision, the market is entering a period of calm.

The previous downward channel is still in place. The price has now retreated from the upper channel boundary and may continue to decline.

NASDAQ 100 Reaches Historic High. META Shares May Surpass the Historical High
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

The American stock index NASDAQ 100 has set a new historical high, surpassing the psychological mark of 17,000 points.

The growth was attributed to:

→ Analysts at Bank of America raising the rating of AAPL stocks, recommending them for BUY. The price of AAPL shares rose by almost 4%.

→ The growth of AMD and NVDA stock prices, as chip manufacturers are significant beneficiaries due to the widespread adoption of AI.

→ The earnings season gaining momentum. Market participants anticipate strong results from major technology companies (MSFT, GOOGL, NVDA, and others).

Note the movement of META stock price – the social media giant is close to reclaiming a $1 trillion market capitalisation.

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

On the hourly chart of GBP/USD at FXOpen, the pair declined after it failed to clear the 1.2800 resistance. As mentioned in the previous analysis, the British Pound even traded below the 1.2715 support against the US Dollar.

Finally, the pair tested the 1.2600 zone and is currently attempting a fresh increase. The bulls were able to push the pair above the 50-hour simple moving average and 1.2740. The pair even climbed above the 50% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the 1.2785 swing high to the 1.2596 low.

The next major resistance is near 1.27640. A close above the 1.2740 resistance zone could open the doors for a move toward 1.2790. Any more gains might send GBP/USD toward 1.2840.

On the downside, there is a key support forming near a contracting triangle at 1.2690. If there is a downside break below 1.2690, the pair could accelerate lower. The first major support is near the 1.2640 level.

The next key support is seen near 1.2600, below which the pair could test 1.2550. Any more losses could lead the pair toward the 1.2500 support.

OPEC Forecasts an Increase in Oil Demand in 2024
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Yesterday, the monthly oil market review was published:

→ OPEC expects global oil demand to increase by 2.25 million barrels per day (b/d) in 2024, representing a 2.2% increase compared to 2023.

→ In 2025, OPEC predicts a demand increase of 1.85 million barrels per day, reaching 106.21 million barrels per day. It is anticipated that the growth in oil consumption in 2025 will be driven by China, the Middle East, and India.

This aligns with Occidental Petroleum's perspective, where they anticipate a global oil shortage starting in 2025, as the pace of global oil demand growth is roughly four times higher than the volumes of new reserves.

However, according to Citi analysts, the price of Brent crude oil in 2025 is expected to be $60 per barrel due to oversupply.

As of today, the price of Brent crude oil is fluctuating in the consolidation zone around $77 per barrel. Market participants are closely monitoring the potential for an increase in the Brent oil price due to geopolitical tensions. For instance, Maersk has reported that escalation in the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aden will lead to disruptions in global logistics.

The UK100 Price Plummeted After the Publication of Inflation Data
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Yesterday, the stock market in the United Kingdom experienced a sharp decline following the release of new inflation data. The UK100 price, reflecting the leading British stock index FTSE, dropped approximately 1.5%. Moreover, the RSI indicator on the 4-hour chart fell below the value of 18 for the first time since July 2023.

Analysts attribute this decline to the published inflation data, which not only failed to meet economists' expectations but also indicated a possible strengthening of inflationary pressure in the country. CPI values: actual = 4.0%, expected = 3.8%, previous value = 3.9%.

This raised concerns among investors regarding the Bank of England's future steps in managing interest rates and the potential slowdown in the country's economic growth.

Sectors most sensitive to changes in interest rates, such as real estate and finance, showed the greatest decline. Significant decreases were also observed in the stocks of companies in the retail and consumer goods sectors, reflecting growing concerns about consumer confidence and spending.

EUR/USD, GBP/USD, USD/JPY Analysis: Dollar Reaches a Monthly Maximum
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

The dollar rate rose yesterday as a market reaction to the statement by Christopher Waller, a member of the Federal Reserve Board, who advocated for a more measured approach to the launch of the monetary easing cycle. According to the official, inflation in the country has indeed reached the upper bounds of the target range of 2.0–3.0%. However, at the moment, it is necessary to ensure that prices remain within these limits or continue to decline in the longer term. Meanwhile, markets still believe that the regulator may begin adjusting borrowing costs at the March meeting. Currently, more than 70.0% of analysts expect such a scenario, compared to 80.0% last week. In the United States today, December statistics on retail sales and industrial production volumes will be published, as well as the monthly economic review from the Federal Reserve, known as the "Beige Book."

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

The EUR/USD pair shows a slight decrease, consolidating near the 1.0870 mark and local lows from December 13. According to EUR/USD technical analysis, immediate resistance can be seen at the 1.0933 mark, and a breakthrough could trigger an increase to 1.0987. On the other hand, the nearest support is seen at the 1.0856 level, and a break below could lead the pair to 1.0825.

Macroeconomic statistics from Germany did not provide significant support for the single currency. Thus, revised inflation data for December showed no changes compared to November's statistics when the consumer price index was 0.1% on a monthly basis and 3.7% on an annual basis. Yesterday, the head of the National Bank of Austria, Robert Holzmann, stated that the European regulator may refrain from correcting monetary policy in 2024. This position was supported by the president of the German Bundesbank, Joachim Nagel, and the director of the Bank of France, Francois Villeroy de Galhau, who noted that it is too early to discuss a reduction in the interest rate since inflation rates exceed preliminary estimates. At the same time, the business sentiment index in Germany in January from the Center for European Economic Research (ZEW) rose from 12.8 points to 15.2 points, while analysts expected 12.0 points. The indicator of current economic conditions decreased from -77.1 points to -77.3 points, with a forecast of -77.0 points. Investors will focus on December inflation data in the eurozone today, but no significant market reaction is expected. In addition, ECB President Christine Lagarde will speak later in the day.

A new descending channel has formed at the week's lows. Currently, the price is in the middle of the channel and may continue to decline.

Market Analysis: Gold Price Dips Again and Crude Oil Price Turns Red
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Gold price is correcting gains below the $2,040 support. Crude oil prices declined steadily below the $72.90 support and moved into a bearish zone.

Important Takeaways for Gold and Oil Prices Analysis Today

  • Gold price climbed higher toward the $2,060 zone before it corrected lower against the US Dollar.
  • A key bearish trend line is forming with resistance near $2,040 on the hourly chart of gold at FXOpen.
  • Crude oil prices extended downsides below the $72.90 support zone.
  • A major bearish trend line is forming with resistance near $72.20 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 rallied heavily above the $2,040 resistance. The price even spiked above $2,060 before there was a downside correction.

There was a move below the $2,040 support level. The bears even pushed the price below the $2,030 support and the 50-hour simple moving average. It tested the $2,020 zone. A low is formed near $2,019.32 and the price is now showing bearish signs.

Immediate resistance is near the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $2,062 swing high to the $2,019 low at $2,030.

The next major resistance is near a bearish trend line at $2,040. The trend line is close to the 50-hour simple moving average and coincides with the 50% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $2,062 swing high to the $2,019 low.

The main resistance could be $2,055, above which the price could test the $2,070 resistance. The next major resistance is $2,080. An upside break above the $2,080 resistance could send Gold price toward $2,120. Any more gains may perhaps set the pace for an increase toward the $2,135 level.

Initial support on the downside is near the $2,020 level. The first major support is near the $2,012 level. If there is a downside break below the $2,012 support, the price might decline further. In the stated case, the price might drop toward the $1,980 support.

The Dollar Continues to Strengthen since the Beginning of the Year
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

The dollar index is hovering at a one-month high against a basket of currencies as remarks from Federal Reserve Chairman Christopher Waller dampened expectations of a March rate cut.

He said that while the U.S. is "within striking distance" of the Fed's 2% inflation target, the Fed should not rush to cut its benchmark interest rate until it is clear that lower inflation will be sustainable.

Market expectations for a rate cut in March fell to 62.2%, down from a forecast of 76.9% in the previous session, according to CME's FedWatch Tool.

The EUR/USD chart today shows that:
→ The rate dropped below the important psychological mark of 1.09 euros per dollar. Now (in case of testing) this level can serve as resistance.
→ The decline in EUR/USD from the peak at the end of December 2023 has already exceeded 2.3%. Will the trend continue?

US Dollar a Bastion of Strength After Christopher Waller's Calm Speech
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Yesterday was a day that many corporate giants and private individuals across the United States had been waiting for, as it was the day during which Federal Reserve Bank governor Christopher Waller gave an official speech in the public domain regarding the possibilities of the United States economy reaching a point at which it can sustain an inflation rate of 2%.

Monetary policymakers within the United States had set themselves a target of driving down the rampant inflation the country experienced approximately two years ago to a sufficient level that it would reach 2% and remain at a steady 2% for the longer term.

Until yesterday's speech by Mr Waller, there was no tangible information from the Federal Reserve relating to how achievable this target would be. However, companies and investors alike may well have continued to tread a cautious route because of the continual interest rate rises the Federal Reserve had implemented over the course of last year despite inflation continuing to decrease.

This ultra-conservative monetary policy is not exclusive to the United States, of course. The European Central Bank and the Bank of England, both central banks which are responsible for the monetary policy of financial jurisdictions with equally important economies which are home to major currencies, had implemented comparatively strict measures to combat inflation by curbing spending with higher interest rates.

Another symptom of these rate rises alongside high inflation figures is that it increases the amount that private individuals and companies have to pay each month to cover their existing borrowing. This is a very important factor because if the proposed rate cuts take place this year on both sides of the Atlantic, more capital will likely be available from the same revenue figures, allowing companies to invest in growth or to report higher profits due to the lower operating costs compared to the past two years.

Microsoft Becomes the Most Expensive Company in the World, Surpassing Apple
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

According to the results of trading shares of AAPL and MSFT yesterday, the market capitalization is:
→ Apple: USD 2.875 trillion.
→ Microsoft: USD 2.887 trillion.

This is facilitated by:
→ positive expectations of investors in shares of MSFT, connected with the leading positions of the company in the field of artificial intelligence;
→ negative sentiments regarding AAPL and demand for its products (as we wrote on January 4). Moreover, the New York Times writes that the Justice Department is preparing to initiate a large-scale antitrust case against Apple because of the dominant position of Apple's devices on the market and the measures that the company used to protect against threats to its business.

MarketWatch provides FactSet statistics on analysts' forecasts:
→ AAPL: +6% for the next 12 months, MSFT: +9%.
→ MSFT has such ratings: "buy": 90%, "neutral": 10%, "sell": 0%.
→ AAPL has such ratings: "buy": 57%, "neutral": 34%, "sell": 9%.

While the price of AAPL is below the maximum of 2023 by approximately 6%, the price of MSFT shares managed to renew the historical record in 2024: at the peak on January 11, MSFT gave more than 390 USD per share.

On January 31, data will be published on Microsoft’s Q4. It is not excluded that while waiting for positive figures, the price of the stock will increase, approaching the psychological level of 400 USD.

Tesla's Bleak Month Continues, but Is It Really That Bad?
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Share price volatility has been synonymous with Tesla for many years now, the company's unique, somewhat giant character echoing the polarising nature of its founder and CEO, Elon Musk.

An unusual company among its big-cap peers, Tesla is one of the most popular stocks on the global market, its volatility offering a diversion from steady, conservative bricks-and-mortar companies, which often dominate the top-tier blue-chip contingents of well-respected indices.

Since 2024 began just two weeks ago, Tesla shares have been declining in value at a rate that is relatively rapid for a firm whose stock is listed on a major exchange and whose peers are the 'Magnificent 7' tech firms which dominate North America's tech stock environment.

On December 28, 2023, FXOpen charts showed Tesla stock to be trading at $264 per share; however, as the new year began, Tesla started to decline and has continued on that trajectory thus far, arriving at $218.55 by the earliest hours of the European session this morning according to the FXOpen chart.

Some reports cite that Tesla stock has fallen by as much as 12% since the start of the year and allude to a 'sell-off' by many investors.

This is a very interesting period of volatility for Tesla, especially given the bullish trend towards tech stocks in general during the course of last year, in which they collectively rose from the doldrums that blighted the tech stock market during 2022 and doubled in value during the course of 2023.

US Dollar Holds Up Well Despite Slight Inflation Increase Spurring Pessimism
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

This morning, as the week's trading begins, a small fly has landed in the otherwise very clear ointment with regard to the anticipated interest rate reductions that Western central banks could make during the early to middle parts of 2024.

Optimism ruled in the earliest days of the new year when mainstream commentary was adorned with reports suggesting that the levels of inflation that had created serious economic concerns in the United States were now under control and have been for some time, allowing the Federal Reserve Bank to possibly review its ultra-conservative monetary policy of continuing rate increases despite over a year of decreasing inflation.

Reports which take into account the inflation figures within the US economy across the entirety of 2023 are now beginning to surface, and it appears that inflation from January 2023 to December 2023 stood at 3.4%, whereas January 2023 until November 2023 showed an inflation figure of 3.1%.

Compounding this matter, the Consumer Price Index rose by 0.3% in December 2023 compared to having fallen by 0.1% in November 2023.

Whether this is enough of a blip to turn the consensus away from the Federal Reserve Bank looking at reducing interest rates during the course of 2024 is yet unknown; however, perhaps the central bank's unusually cautious approach, which was displayed during 2023, can be considered in these circumstances.

As far as reaction within the currency markets is concerned, the US dollar has not declined against other Western-market major currencies by any level significant enough to consider it related to December's inflation figures.

In Britain, a similar central bank policy - a policy of ultra-conservatism - has been implemented to attempt to curb similar levels of rampant inflation which took place two years ago and sustained itself for many months, accompanied by a high-profile 'cost of living crisis', however when looking at the value of the British pound against the US dollar this morning, the pound has not gained much ground.

Pricing according to FXOpen charts shows that on Friday, January 12, the GBPUSD pair was trading at 1.27473, whereas this morning, during the early hours of the London trading session, the GBPUSD pair was trading at 1.27419.

EUR/USD, GBP/USD, USD/CAD Analysis: The Dollar Declines after the Release of Data on the Producer Price Index
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

The dollar fell on Friday after US producer prices fell unexpectedly in December, fueling expectations of an imminent US rate cut. The final demand producer price index decreased by 0.1%, which was due to a decrease in the cost of goods. Prices for services remained unchanged last month, raising the possibility of lower inflation in the coming months. The US currency previously benefited from risk aversion after strikes in Yemen came in response to attacks by Iran-backed Houthi forces on shipping in the Red Sea, widening the regional conflict caused by Israel's war in the Gaza Strip. Traders see an 80% chance of an interest rate cut in March, up from around 70% chance seen before the PPI report.

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

The EUR/USD pair is trading around the 1.0960 level, moving away from last week's lows. According to EUR/USD technical analysis, Immediate resistance can be seen at 1.1000, a break higher could trigger a move towards 1.1045. On the downside, immediate support is seen at 1.0940, a break below could take the pair towards 1.0910.

The euro was put under pressure by soft comments from the ECB. ECB President Christine Lagarde said on Thursday that the worst of inflation is likely over and that interest rates will be cut if inflation falls to 2%. Dismissing those expectations, ECB chief economist Philip R. Lane said recent inflation data broadly supported the central bank's current views, meaning rate cuts were not on the table for debate in the near future. On the data side, France's consumer price inflation (CPI) rose 4.1% year-on-year in December, while Spain's annual inflation fell to 3.1% last month.

The trading range with boundaries of 1.0875 and 1.1000 remains. Now the price is above the middle of the range and may continue to rise.

BTC/USD price and the “Three Black Crows” pattern
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

On January 11, the highly publicized Bitcoin ETF began trading after it was officially approved by the SEC. On this day, the price of Bitcoin exceeded USD 48,800, as shown by the chart. Bloomberg writes that new US spot funds achieved net inflows of USD 819 million in the first two days of trading.

However, from the high on January 11, a dizzying fall began, and already at the low on January 12, Bitcoin was worth less than USD 41,800. This dynamic may illustrate the “buy the rumors, sell the facts” strategy, which we wrote about on January 3 when predicting the price of Bitcoin in 2024.

News of the ETF's approval sent the ATR above 1,100 on the 4-hour chart, the last time it did so was in mid-June 2022. The market was overly active, and what is important is that three bearish candles (marked with an arrow) summed up this activity. They can be interpreted as the three black crows pattern.

According to statistics from Tim Bulkowski, this pattern works in 78% of cases and means a trend change from bullish to bearish. According to CandleScanner statistics for 20 years, collected on the S&P 500 index market, the pattern turned out to be false only in 18.6% of cases out of 543 occurrences.

Does this mean that the statistics will work on the Bitcoin price chart?

EUR/USD, GBP/USD, and USD/JPY Analysis: US Dollar Weakens after Inflation Data
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

The US dollar weakened after data showed US consumer price inflation in December exceeded economists' expectations. This has raised some doubts that the Fed will cut rates. US consumer prices rose in December as inflation continued its upward trend, rising 0.3% for the month and 3.4% year-on-year, versus economists' forecasts of 0.2% and 3.2%, respectively. Cleveland Fed President Loretta Mester said it would be too early to cut rates in March, while Richmond Fed Chairman Tom Barkin said rising inflation was too narrowly focused on goods. American monetary authorities will probably be in no hurry to launch a cycle of lower borrowing costs this year. Against this background, expectations regarding a March adjustment to the value have been revised, but in general such a scenario is still considered possible. Today at 15:30 (GMT+2), the focus of investors' attention will be on statistics from the United States on manufacturing inflation: the producer price index is expected to increase in December from 0.9% to 1.3% in annual terms and from 0.0% to 0.1% per month.

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

Quotes of the EUR/USD pair are holding near the 1.0975 mark, preparing to end the week with slight upward dynamics. According to EUR/USD technical analysis, immediate resistance can be seen at 1.1000, a break higher could trigger a move towards 1.1045. On the downside, immediate support is seen at 1.0958, a break below could take the pair towards 1.0910.

Trading participants are closely monitoring comments from ECB representatives. Board member of the regulator Isabel Schnabel said yesterday that indicators of economic sentiment in the region have probably reached minimum values, while the short-term economic prospects remain weak. The official also noted that the labour market remains resistant to changes made by the regulator, but a return of inflation to the target level of 2.0% in 2025 is still possible. During the day, data on consumer price indices will be published in Spain and France, which may remain at 3.1% and 4.1%, respectively.

The same trading range with boundaries of 1.0875 and 1.1000 remains. Now the price has moved away from the upper limit of the range and may continue to decline.

Inflation Data Changes Market Sentiment
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

US CPI data published yesterday did not meet expectations. Analysts predicted 3.2%, but in fact it turned out = 3.4% (value a month ago = 3.1%). This hardly means a reversal of the large-scale trend toward weakening inflation (a year ago CPI = 6.5%), but to some extent investors have become wary. According to FedWatch, expectations for a rate cut by the Federal Reserve in March dropped to about 65% (before the news was about 70%).

The publication of the news caused a noticeable surge in volatility in financial markets. Let's pay attention to the S&P 500 chart. The index price is within an uptrend (as shown by the blue channel), however, this trend may change:

→ Tops A-B-C form divergence with the RSI indicator — a sign of weakening demand near the upper border of the channel.
→ Yesterday, the price only slightly and briefly exceeded the A-B-C formation, forming top D. That is, a false bullish breakout was formed. This type of price behavior at top D confirms the activity of the bears at the level of 4,800.

Important Takeaways for AUD USD and NZD USD Analysis Today

  • The Aussie Dollar started a fresh increase above the 0.6680 and 0.6695 levels against the US Dollar.

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

On the hourly chart of AUD/USD at FXOpen, the pair started a fresh increase from the 0.6650 support. The Aussie Dollar was able to clear the 0.6680 resistance to move into a positive zone against the US Dollar.

The bulls pushed the pair above the 50% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the 0.6725 swing high to the 0.6647 low. There was a close above the 0.6695 resistance and the 50-hour simple moving average.

Finally, the pair spiked above the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the 0.6725 swing high to the 0.6647 low. On the upside, the AUD/USD chart indicates that the pair is now facing resistance near a key bearish trend line at 0.6715.

The first major resistance might be 0.6725. An upside break above the 0.6725 resistance might send the pair further higher. The next major resistance is near the 0.6750 level. Any more gains could clear the path for a move toward the 0.6820 resistance zone.

If not, the pair might correct lower below the 50-hour simple moving average at 0.6695. The next support could be 0.6680. If there is a downside break below the 0.6680 support, the pair could extend its decline toward the 0.6650 zone. Any more losses might signal a move toward 0.6600.

USD/JPY, GBP/USD, and EUR/USD Analysis: The Yen Resumes Its Decline, the Euro and the Pound Test Important Levels
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Towards the end of the current five-day trading period, in most currency pairs we are seeing a continuation of the sluggish flat movement. Thus, the pound/US dollar pair is trading near last week’s highs at 1.2770, the euro/US dollar pair is trying to get closer to the psychological level of 1.1000, and commodity currencies are also caught in narrow flat corridors. But the US dollar/yen pair paints a slightly different picture. After a downward pullback last Friday, buyers of the pair found support at 143.40 and strengthened the price by more than 100 points in just one day. We will see whether it will be possible to maintain the upward mood for the pair today after the publication of inflation data in the United States.

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

Negative fundamental data from Japan published this week contributed to the resumption of the downward movement in the yen. Thus, the household expenditure index in November was at -2.9% against the forecast of -2.3%. The total income of employees in the form of wages in Japan also decreased over the same period: 0.2% versus 1.5%. As a result of such data, the price almost tested last week’s high at 146.00. If buyers manage to strengthen the pair above the mentioned level, the price may continue to rise in the direction of 147.00-148.00. A downward breakdown of the range 144.00-143.00 may contribute to a decline to the December extremes at 140.80-140.30.

Finally! The SEC Approves all 11 Applications for Bitcoin ETFs
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

The following ETFs can start operating today:

  • Blackrock's iShares Bitcoin Trust (IBIT)
  • ARK 21Shares Bitcoin ETF (ARKB)
  • WisdomTree Bitcoin Fund (BTCW)
  • Invesco Galaxy Bitcoin ETF (BTCO)
  • Bitwise Bitcoin ETF (BITB)
  • VanEck Bitcoin Trust (HODL)
  • Franklin Bitcoin ETF (EZBC)
  • Fidelity Wise Origin Bitcoin Trust (FBTC)
  • Valkyrie Bitcoin Fund (BRRR)
  • Grayscale Bitcoin Trust (GBTC)
  • Hashdex Bitcoin ETF (DEFI)


Despite the regulatory approval of the first spot Bitcoin ETFs in US history, the head of the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) Gary Gensler has not changed his critical attitude towards cryptocurrencies. Thus, the regulator sees signs of illegally issued securities in many cryptocurrencies that operate on the Proof-of-Stake (PoS) algorithm.

According to Gensler, the regulator was forced to approve the applications due to “changed circumstances.” This is likely a reference to the recent litigation where Grayscale filed a request with the Commission to transform its Bitcoin fund into a spot ETF. The judge then concluded that the regulator had wrongfully rejected the company's application.

Gensler also warned investors about the numerous risks associated with Bitcoin.

Meanwhile:
→ Funds whose applications have been approved are reducing fees one after another, trying to win the competition for investors.
→ Bank of England (BOE) Governor Andrew Bailey, speaking before the Treasury Committee of the United Kingdom Parliament, called Bitcoin ineffective.
→ Cryptocurrency exchange apps have become unavailable in India due to the introduction of stricter legislation governing cryptocurrencies.

Nikkei 225 Sets 21st Century High
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

As the chart shows, this morning the Nikkei 225 price exceeded 35,700, its highest level in decades.

The Nikkei 225 index reached its all-time high on December 30, 1989, at 38,957.44 points. This was against the backdrop of Japan's economic boom, which began in the 1980s and continued until the early 1990s.

Nikkei 225 growth is supported by lower inflation:
→ in Japan: the latest data showed an annual inflation rate of 2.8% — lower than a series of more than 10 previous values, all of which were above 3%. This reduces fears that the Bank of Japan will raise interest rates and limit its current economic stimulus policies.
→ In the USA. Today, we remind you that at 16:30 GMT+3 inflation data in the USA will be published. It is also expected to show a slowdown in inflation. Therefore, market participants believe in a reduction in Fed rates, which can give impetus to the development of companies.

EUR/USD, GBP/USD, USD/JPY Analysis: Dollar Strengthens ahead of Inflation Data Release
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Yesterday, the US dollar rose against all major currencies, as it is unclear when the Fed will lower rates. The main economic data this week will be the December consumer price inflation report, which is scheduled to be released on Thursday. Expectations call for headline inflation to increase 0.2% month-on-month, reaching 3.2% year-on-year growth. If data confirms that inflation continues to slow, it could increase expectations of a rate cut in March.

A New York Fed survey released Monday showed consumers see lower inflation and slower growth in household income and spending over the next few years. Last week's better-than-expected employment figures, coupled with the latest Fed minutes that expressed ambiguity about the timing of rate cuts, have dampened expectations of an imminent US policy easing. The dollar is supported by macroeconomic statistics from the United States. The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) business optimism index rose from 90.6 points to 91.9 points in December, while analysts expected 90.7 points, and the IBD/TIPP economic optimism index rose from 40.0 points in January to 44.7 points with a forecast of 42.0 points.

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

The EUR/USD pair shows mixed dynamics, remaining close to 1.0930. According to EUR/USD technical analysis, immediate resistance can be seen at 1.1000, a break higher could trigger a move towards 1.1045. On the downside, immediate support is seen at 1.0910, a break below could take the pair towards 1.0875.

Yesterday, the positions of the single currency came under pressure, but traders expect the emergence of new drivers for making trading decisions. Investors are concerned about the development of the crisis in the EU and, in particular, in Germany, which could be aggravated by large-scale protests by farmers across the country. In turn, German data on the dynamics of industrial production in November showed a decrease of 0.7% after -0.3% in the previous month, while analysts expected moderate growth of 0.25%, and in annual terms the decline accelerated from -3.4% to -4.8%.

The same trading range with boundaries of 1.0875 and 1.1000 remains. Now the price is in the middle of the range and may continue to rise.

S&P 500 Rebounds Despite Boeing's Commercial Disaster
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Stock markets in the United States have been very interesting over recent years. However, it has not just been a case of following the volatile tech stocks on the NASDAQ, as the more traditional companies that are included in the S&P 500 can also make waves.

This week, the S&P 500 index has experienced a very sudden change in fortunes, showing a noticeably different pattern compared to its very strong growth that has been consistent since November 2023.

At FXOpen, the S&P 500 index stood at 4,119 points on October 27 before beginning a substantial rally in which it increased over several weeks before touching 4,780 points on January 1 this year.

Such a strong rally showed consistent growth among the most prestigious large-cap companies on the American stock markets, demonstrating remarkable progress in the growth of the US economy overall; however, whilst the country itself may be back on track, there is one extremely high-profile aspect that has begun to dampen the progress made since November with regard to the S&P 500 index.

This week, in the aftermath of the incident, which took place in Portland, Oregon, in which a Boeing 737-9 MAX aircraft had made an emergency landing after a section of its fuselage disconnected from the aircraft mid-flight, there have been severe repercussions for its manufacturer.

Seattle-based Boeing Company, which is one of the world's largest civilian aircraft manufacturers, is a key component of the S&P 500 index, and its share price has been affected by this incident, which builds further on a previous issue in which a similar model of aircraft, a Boeing 737-8 MAX operated by Ethiopian Airlines crashed due to an innate design fault in 2019 killing 157 people with an ongoing litigation having cost Boeing approximately $20 billion so far.

This latest incident has caused Boeing stock to dive, and this week, the S&P 500's previously unstoppable rally ended, taking the value down to 4,694 on January 4 at FXOpen.

Inflation in Australia Continues To Decline. AUD/USD Tests Important Support
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Data today from the Australian Bureau of Statistics on Wednesday showed the monthly consumer price index (CPI) rose 4.3% year-on-year in November, the slowest pace since January 2022. Value a month earlier = 4.9%. Market forecasts = 4.4%.

This strengthened market expectations that interest rates would not have to rise further. Although the head of the Reserve Bank of Australia, Michele Bullock, warned of the risks of rising price pressures caused by domestic demand, for example, due to rising prices for rental housing.

Against the backdrop of the publication of news about inflation in Australia, no strong surges were noticed in the AUD/USD market. Perhaps this was due to the fact that there were no surprises.

Meanwhile, the 4-hour chart shows that the AUD/USD rate is nearing important support, which is formed by the lower line of the trend channel (shown in blue), within which the price has been moving since last fall.

Important Takeaways for EUR/USD and USD/CHF Analysis Today

  • The Euro struggled to clear the 1.1000 resistance and declined against the US Dollar.
  • There is a major bearish trend line forming with resistance near 1.0945 on the hourly chart of EUR/USD at FXOpen.
  • USD/CHF is gaining pace above the 0.8500 resistance zone.

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

On the hourly chart of EUR/USD at FXOpen, the pair failed to clear the 1.1000 resistance. The Euro started a fresh decline below the 1.0980 support against the US Dollar.

There was a move below the 50-hour simple moving average and 1.0945. The bears were able to push the pair below the 1.0920 pivot level. The pair traded as low as 1.0910 and is currently consolidating losses.

Immediate resistance on the upside is near the 50% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the 1.0978 swing high to the 1.0610 low. There is also a major bearish trend line forming with resistance near 1.0945 and the 50-hour simple moving average.

The next major resistance is near the 1.0980 zone. An upside break above the 1.0980 level might send the pair toward the 1.1020 resistance or the 1.618 Fib extension level of the downward move from the 1.0978 swing high to the 1.0610 low. Any more gains might open the doors for a move toward the 1.1050 level.

On the downside, immediate support on the EUR/USD chart is seen near 1.0910. The next major support is near the 1.0890 level. A downside break below the 1.0890 support could send the pair toward the 1.0850 level.

USD/CAD, GBP/USD, and EUR/USD Analysis: Major Currency Pairs in Consolidation Phase
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Despite higher than expected NFP figures, published last week, the US dollar suffered a downward pullback. Thus, the pound/US dollar pair retested support at 1.2600 and sharply rose above 1.2700, the US dollar/loonie pair fell to 1.3290, and the euro/US dollar pair managed to briefly return to 1.1000. At the same time, it was not possible to develop a full-fledged downward movement, and since the beginning of the current five-day trading period, the main currency pairs continue to trade in narrow flat corridors.

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

On the daily chart of USD/CAD, the upward pullback, which we observed on December 27, was interrupted on Friday by a sharp rebound from the resistance in the form of intertwined alligator lines. The price retreated from 1.3400, but managed to remain above 1.3300, which may increase the likelihood of a resumption of upward movement. Cancellation of the upward scenario can be considered after a confident consolidation below 1.3270.

Today at 16:30 GMT+3, it is worth paying attention to the publication of data on the trade balance and permits for the construction of new houses in Canada for December. Tomorrow at 18:30 GMT+3, data on crude oil reserves in the United States will be released.

British Companies Bullish on Economic Strength, but Pound Dips
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

The British economy, despite being free from the high-profile catastrophes during the past year that dogged progress in the United States, has been the subject of trepidation from corporate giants and investors alike recently.

There has been no such series of bank collapses or near-insolvent government coffers on Britain's shores. In contrast, last year, there was a host of large-scale fiscal disasters in the United States, including the demise of some long-established banks and a need for the US government to raise the debt ceiling to be able to borrow more money to stop the country becoming insolvent, despite its already very high national debt.

The anomaly amid these two yardstick economies is that during the course of last year, the US dollar remained very buoyant against all other majors despite these weaknesses, which could possibly be down to a highly productive workforce and inflation that became well under control before it did in Europe and the United Kingdom.

Today, a potential beacon of light for the British economy has emerged in the form of a report by PriceWaterhouseCoopers, which indicates that Britain may be well positioned to increase its standing as a global hub for manufacturing.

Such a report may come as a surprise to many, as Britain, along with many other Western countries with high-cost bases, is not often viewed as a nation with attractive entry points for goods manufacturers due to high salaries, energy costs, worker shortages, high taxation, logistical issues and more recently, the added cost and bureaucracy associated with Brexit.

The Swiss National Bank Suffered Losses of 3 Billion Francs in 2023
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

The Swiss National Bank (SNB) reported an annual loss of 3 billion Swiss francs (USD 3.54 billion) in 2023 and said it would not make payments to Switzerland's central or local government or pay dividends to investors.

The loss is believed to have occurred as a result of interest rate hikes aimed at fighting inflation.

Although in Switzerland, perhaps, inflation is at the lowest level: according to yesterday's Core Price Index data, the actual value is = 0.0% (expected = 0.1%, a year ago = -0.2%, the highest actual value in 2023 was = +0.7 %). However, the SNB raised the rate to 1.75% twice in 2023, and this led to it making more payments to deposit account holders.

Note that the loss for 2023 is much less than the record minus 133 billion for 2022. Reuters writes that the losses will not affect the bank's current monetary policy, and interest rates could be cut during 2024.

On November 2, we wrote that the franc could continue to strengthen. Since then, USD/CHF has fallen about 6%, setting its 2023 low on December 28 at 0.83327.

EUR/USD, GBP/USD, and USD/JPY Analysis: Dollar Loses Gains Due to US Services Data
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

The dollar initially rose on Friday but then retreated after data showed the US services sector fell sharply in December, erasing gains made after a report showed stronger-than-expected nonfarm payrolls last month. Earlier in the session, the dollar jumped after data showed the US economy added 216,000 new jobs in December, topping the consensus forecast of 170,000. The Institute for Supply Management (ISM) said its non-manufacturing index fell to 50.6 last month, the lowest since May, down from 52.7 in November. The service sector makes up more than two-thirds of the economy. Economists polled by Reuters had forecast the index would change little to 52.6.

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

The EUR/USD pair is trading around the 1.0940 level. According to EUR/USD technical analysis, immediate resistance can be seen at 1.1000, a break higher could trigger a move towards 1.1045. On the downside, immediate support is seen at 1.0918, a break below could take the pair towards 1.0875. The eurozone reported lower-than-expected consumer price index data (2.9% vs. 3.0%).

Over the past week, a trading range has formed with boundaries of 1.0875 and 1.1000. Now the price is in the middle of the range and may continue to rise.

JPM Stock Hits All-time High

This week the reporting season begins — company results for the 4th quarter will certainly become one of the most important drivers of stock index prices, along with the publication of news about inflation, the labor market, and statements from the Federal Reserve.

Large banks will traditionally be among the first to report: JP Morgan, Bank of America, Wells Fargo, Citi. The banking sector looks frankly strong at the beginning of 2024. While the S&P-500 is down 1% in the first week, the XLF financial sector fund is holding near the year's opening price.

According to MarketWatch, bank stocks are becoming increasingly popular amid expectations of a positive yield curve in the second half of 2024, and analysts have set “buy” ratings on shares of Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley and Wells Fargo (WFC).

It should be noted that shares of JP Morgan bank set a historical record. The previous high set on October 25, 2021 was USD 172.75 per share. At its peak last Friday, the price reached USD 173.19 per share.

The growth of JPM shares is facilitated by the dividend policy:
→ January 2024: USD 1.05 per share;
→ January 2023: USD 1.00 per share;
→ January 2022: USD 1.00 per share;
→ January 2021: USD 0.90 per share;
→ January 2020: USD 0.90 per share.

JPM data will be published on Friday. Will the price be able to maintain its highs?

There are some concerns.

From a fundamental point of view, in the current economic environment, with inflation remaining above target and interest rates at high levels, the results for the 4th quarter may disappoint.

High Hopes for FTSE 100 Deflate After First Week of 2024
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

At the end of last year, there were a number of interesting speculations regarding the trajectory that the stock of London's most prestigious 100 companies would take in the new year.

The FTSE 100 index had been increasing in value very steadily during the final two weeks of 2023, creating the potential notion that it may venture toward the 8,000 mark once again, revisiting the milestone which it passed in February last year for the first time in history.

One full week of trading has now passed since 2024 began, and the upward direction that was prevailing at the end of December has not continued.

Instead, a steady decrease in value has materialised, with the FTSE 100 index having reduced in value over the five-day moving average from 7,764 on January 2 to 7,680 on the opening bell this morning at the London Stock Exchange at FXOpen. The FTSE 100 had dipped as low as 7,654 on Friday afternoon last week.

Hopes were high for a bumper start to 2024 for the London Stock Exchange's FTSE 100 index, with many analysts having made their predictions at the end of 2023 that it would have a better year in 2024 than it did in 2023.

The Dollar On the Rise ahead of the US Non-farm Payrolls Report
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

The American currency is receiving support after the publication of the meeting minutes of the Federal Open Market Committee, according to which officials may begin a cycle of interest rate cuts by the end of this year, while pointing to continued uncertainty in the economy. Trading participants are in no hurry to open new positions ahead of today's publication of the December report on the US labour market. Forecasts assume a slowdown in the growth rate of new jobs outside the agricultural sector from 199.0k to 170.0k. At the same time, the unemployment rate is expected to adjust from 3.7% to 3.8%, and the average hourly wage, from 4.0% to 3.9%. At the moment, investors are evaluating a report from Automatic Data Processing (ADP), which reflected an increase in employment in the private sector from 101.0k to 164.0k, while analysts expected 115.0k. In turn, the number of initial applications for unemployment benefits for the week of December 29 decreased from 220.0k to 202.0k, with a forecast of 216.0k.

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

According to EUR/USD technical analysis, the pair shows mixed trading dynamics, consolidating near the 1.0940 mark. Immediate resistance can be seen at 1.0989, a break higher could trigger a move towards 1.1000. On the downside, immediate support is seen at 1.0911, a break below could take the pair towards 1.0839.

Activity in the market remains quite low, as investors are in no hurry to open new positions ahead of the publication of European statistics on consumer inflation and the December report on the US labour market. Forecasts suggest a moderate rise in the eurozone consumer price index in December from 2.4% to 3.0%, which could lead to the ECB taking a pause before the expected launch of a cycle of interest rate cuts this year. Yesterday, inflation statistics were published in Germany. In monthly terms, the indicator increased by 0.1% after declining by 0.4% in November, and in annual terms it accelerated from 3.2% to 3.7%, which turned out to be slightly worse than market expectations at 3.8%. The single currency was also moderately supported by statistics on business activity: the composite index in the eurozone manufacturing sector in December rose from 47.0 points to 47.6 points, and in the services sector from 48.1 points to 48.8 points, beating neutral forecasts.

Based on the lows of two days, a new downward channel has formed. Now the price is in the middle of the channel and may continue to decline after approaching the upper limit.

USD/JPY: The Price Reaches Resistance at 145 Yen per US Dollar
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

As of Friday morning, the situation on the USD/JPY market deserves attention:

→ the US dollar is on course to demonstrate its strongest week since July 2023. The media writes that markets are adjusting expectations regarding the easing of monetary policy by the Fed.

→ The yen fell about 3% against the US dollar in the first week of the year, which could be its weakest weekly performance since August 2022.

The USD/JPY chart shows that:

→ the price moves within the descending channel (shown in red). Growth at the beginning of the year expanded its boundaries along the principle of a parallel channel.

→ the median line has been broken by the bulls. The price action around 142 shows increased demand. The price could not consolidate below this level in December, serving as a powerful support for ending panic on December 7 and 14-15. Also, demand forces did not allow the price to reach the lower border of the channel on December 28.

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

Gold price is correcting lower from the $2,088 resistance. Crude oil price is rising and it could climb further higher toward the $75.90 resistance.

Important Takeaways for Gold and Oil Prices Analysis Today

  • A key contracting triangle is forming with support at $2,042 on the hourly chart of gold 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 $2,050 resistance. The price even broke the $2,078 level before the bears appeared.

The price traded as high as $2,088 before there was a downside correction. There was a move below the $2,060 pivot zone. The price settled below the 50-hour simple moving average and RSI dipped below 50. Finally, it tested the $2,030 zone.

The price is now attempting a recovery wave above the $2,040 level. It climbed above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $2,078 swing high to the $2,030 low.

If the bulls remain active, the price could start a fresh increase. Immediate resistance is near the 50-hour simple moving average at $2,046. The next major resistance is near the 50% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $2,078 swing high to the $2,030 low at $2,055.

An upside break above the $2,055 resistance could send Gold price toward $2,078. Any more gains may perhaps set the pace for an increase toward the $2,088 level.

Initial support on the downside is near the $2,042 level. There is also a key contracting triangle forming with support at $2,042. The first major support is $2,030. If there is a downside break below $2,030, the price might decline further. In the stated case, the price might drop toward $2,010.
