Brent: the upward trend prevails
27/12/2017
Current dynamics

The explosion of the oil pipeline in Libya caused an increase in concerns over possible interruptions in oil supplies, which led to a sharp increase in oil prices. As indicated on the site of the Libyan National Oil Co., the reduction in oil production in the country due to the accident is likely to be up to 100,000 barrels per day.
Earlier it was reported about the continued suspension of the operation of the Forties pipeline system in the North Sea, as a result of which the market will not receive 450,000 barrels of oil daily.
As a result, prices yesterday reached a maximum for two and a half years. On Tuesday, WTI futures rose above $ 60 per barrel, gaining 2.6% to a maximum since June 2015. The spot price for Brent crude at the end of yesterday's trading day was close to $ 66.20 per barrel, which is $ 1.7 higher than the opening price of the trading day. Today there is a decline in oil quotations.
On Thursday, the publication of data on oil reserves in the US is expected. It is expected that the report submitted by the US Energy Ministry will demonstrate the fifth week decrease in reserves in a row (-3.925 million barrels against -6.495 million barrels in the week before last).
As is known, at the end of November, OPEC, Russia and a number of other large oil-producing countries agreed to further reduce oil production by about 1.8 million barrels a day, or about 2% of the world's oil production. The deal was extended until the end of 2018.
Thus, several factors will support oil prices in the short term. This is the extension of the OPEC deal, the reduction of US oil reserves, the weakening of the dollar, and, again, the recently manifested factor, like the risks of oil supply disruptions in different regions of the world.
Despite the fact that the supply of oil from the United States and other countries not participating in the deal is likely to continue to grow, the positive dynamics of oil prices remains.

S&P500: indexes "lay down into the drift"
28/12/2017
Current dynamics

The dollar continues to scale down. The index of the dollar WSJ, which estimates its rate to the basket of 16 other currencies, fell 0.4% on Thursday. He declined during seven of the last eight sessions. Many of the trading ideas associated with the expectation of dollar growth are beginning to unfold.
The dollar is under pressure, despite the adoption of laws on tax reform, which, according to many economists, should support the growth of the US economy. Tax cuts from 35% to 21% (previously assumed to be 20%), according to supporters of reforms, will also support inflation, which will allow the Fed to accelerate the pace of tightening policies in 2018. Most taxes will be reduced from January, and by February many workers will take higher salaries.
At the same time, on the eve of New Year holidays, trading volumes remain low. American stock indexes remain in narrow ranges for the second week in a row. Investors in the stock market also continue to assess the impact of the recently adopted tax bill on the US economy. Economic indicators of the US economy are still favorable for the stock market on the eve of 2018.
The S & P500 grew in December by 1.3%, and from the beginning of the year by 20%. Overall, the S & P500 remains positive. Nevertheless, traders prefer to take a wait-and-see position in the stock market.
In the case of breakdown of the local resistance level at 2693.0 (December and year highs), the index will continue to grow.

EUR/USD: the dollar lost to the euro more than 13%
29/12/2017
Current dynamics


Today is the last trading day of the outgoing year, and the dollar remains the focus of investors' attention, demonstrating a large-scale decline. This year became worst in a decade for the index of the dollar WSJ, dropping from the beginning of the year by 7.3%.
Euro since the beginning of the year has strengthened to the dollar by 13.6%, which was the maximum growth since 2003. The British pound in 2017 rose to the dollar by 9.1%, and this happens despite the still unclear prospects for negotiations of the UK with the EU over Brexit.
In December, finally, the US Senate fully approved tax reform, which envisages an unprecedented tax cut from US corporations from 35% to 21% (previously 20% was assumed). Reform, according to its supporters, should support the growth of the US economy. It will also accelerate inflation, which will allow the Fed to accelerate the pace of tightening policies in 2018.
And, nevertheless, investors are actively selling the dollar, the fall of which does stop neither positive US macro statistics, nor adoption of new tax legislation in the US, nor the Fed's actions to tighten monetary policy. As you know, the Fed raised interest rates three times in 2017, and three more increases are scheduled for 2018.
Probably, the focus of investors' attention in 2018 will be the dynamics of wages in the US. Most taxes will be reduced from January, and by February many workers will take higher salaries. If wages are growing steadily, then, while maintaining the stability of the economy and the US labor market, interest rates can rise faster than market participants suggest.
It is possible that the actions of the Fed will still be able to reverse the situation in the new year with a deteriorating attitude toward the dollar. The reason for the reversal of the market and the bearish trend of the dollar may be the repatriation of profits earned abroad by US companies. As is known, within the framework of the tax reform, a one-time privilege for the repatriation of profits and capital to the United States is envisaged. If in the next few months US companies begin to return money to the United States, earned in other countries, it will cause an increase in demand for the dollar.
In recent months, unexpected movements and fluctuations in exchange rates have occurred on the market. Also, we should not discount the earlier statements of Donald Trump about the need for a weak dollar, including in order to increase the competitiveness of American goods abroad.
Thus, the intrigue around the dollar and its dynamics in the new year persists.

Brent: the rising dynamics of prices
09/01/2018
Current dynamics

With the coming of the new year, the decline in the dollar, especially noticeably observed at the end of the past year, continued. Nevertheless, the dollar is gradually beginning to win back the lost positions.
Despite the fact that the negative dynamics of the dollar is observed in relation to commodity currencies, such as Canadian, New Zealand, Australian dollars, against the euro and the assets-shelters (yen, franc, gold), the dollar is strengthening.
Meanwhile, with the coming of the new year, oil prices are also rising. During today's Asian trading session, the price of Brent crude oil was again in the zone of multi-month highs near the level of 68.00 dollars per barrel. The last time the price was at current levels in May 2015.
Cold frosty weather in the US and riots in Iran, held several days ago, provoked a sharp rise in oil prices at the beginning of the year. According to various estimates, Iran possesses about 10% of the world's proven oil reserves, being the 4th largest oil producer after Venezuela (20% of the world's reserves), Saudi Arabia and Canada. Russia, by the way, is on the 8th place with reserves of 80,000 million barrels as of 2016. Iran is the third largest in terms of oil production in OPEC. Therefore, the information received from Iran on anti-government actions, made investors fear of possible interruptions in oil supplies, which, in turn, affected the next increase in oil prices.
As the American oil service company Baker Hughes reported last Friday, the number of active oil drilling rigs in the United States fell by 5 units to 742 over the past week. This also has a positive effect on oil prices, as it indicates some decrease in oil production in the US.
Meanwhile, US oil companies have a significant prospect and an incentive to increase production while oil prices remain high. The growth of oil production in the US is one of the deterrents to the growth in oil prices.
In November 2017, OPEC and another 10 oil-producing countries that are not part of the cartel have extended the deal to reduce global oil production by the end of 2018. The surplus of oil on the world market, which exerted pressure on prices for several years, is gradually being absorbed. The positive dynamics of oil prices, in general, remains. A further price increase is likely to reach $ 70 per barrel.
Today, the American Petroleum Institute (API) at 21:00 (GMT) will report on oil and petroleum products in the US. And on Wednesday (15:30 GMT) the official weekly report of the US Energy Ministry will be presented. As expected, this agency will report a drop in oil and petroleum products by 4.1 million barrels last week (after a decline of 7.4 million barrels in the week before last). If the data are confirmed, they will further increase oil prices.

GBP/USD: pound reacted positively to industrial production data
10/01/2018
Current dynamics

According to official data published on Wednesday, UK manufacturing production in November increased by 0.4% (forecast was + 0.3%) and by 3.5% in annual terms. Data for October were revised upwards (+ 0.3%, and not 0.1%, as previously thought). Despite the fact that industrial production accounts for about a fifth of the country's economy, with the largest contribution to the economy by the service sector and retail trade, the pound reacted positively to the data presented.
At the same time, data showed a slight increase in the UK trade deficit in November (to 12.2 billion pounds from 11.7 billion pounds in October, with a forecast of -10.7 billion pounds). Nevertheless, the pound continued to rise against the dollar after the release of the data.
The dollar is again falling today after growth in the beginning of the year.
On Tuesday, the Bank of Japan cut of 5% to 190 billion yen in buying some long-term government bonds. Market participants considered this a foreshadowing of the beginning of the curtailment of a large-scale program to stimulate the Japanese economy. Sales of the dollar against the yen against the backdrop of an increase in the yield of 10-year and 25-year Japanese government bonds provoked its decline against other currencies. By the beginning of today's European session, the dollar index DXY fell to 92.07 from the level of 92.2 on Tuesday.
In general, the positive dynamics of the GBP / USD pair remains. Nevertheless, traders who trade in the pound and GBP / USD pair are cautious ahead of the start of trade talks between the EU and the UK. Uncertainty in the prospects for economic relations between the UK and the European Union and the disagreements in the British government over Brexit put pressure on the pound. The British government still has no common opinion on further actions and future relations with the EU.
Back in November, UK Finance Minister Philip Hammond published negative forecasts for the growth of the British economy, and in December the IMF published a forecast that the GDP growth of the UK in 2018 will slow down to about 1.5% against the backdrop of declining consumer and company costs due to Brexit .
At 13:00 (GMT) the report NIESR (National Institute for Economic and Social Research of Great Britain) will be published with an estimate of GDP growth rates of the country. This indicator estimates the growth rate of the British economy during the last three months and is able to influence the monetary policy of the Bank of England. The high value of the indicator is a positive factor for GBP. Forecast: UK economic growth for the last three months was 0.5% (against + 0.5% in the previous 3-month period). If the data are confirmed, then you can expect a 2% increase in the UK economy in 2017. This is a very positive indicator, given the gloomy forecasts of economists regarding the British economy after the referendum on Brexit, held in June 2016.

Support and resistance levels
Short-term support level 1.3520 (EMA200 on 1-hour and EMA50 on 4-hour charts) kept GBP / USD from a deeper decline.
The pair GBP / USD remains positive dynamics, trading in the upward channels on the daily and weekly charts.
In case of consolidation above the local resistance level 1.3550, the GBP / USD growth will continue towards the resistance levels 1.3700 (EMA144), 1.3970 (Fibonacci level 38.2%), 1.4050 (EMA200 on the weekly chart).
The decline scenario will be related to the breakdown of the support level 1.3420 (EMA200 on the 4-hour chart) and the further decline of the GBP / USD to support levels of 1.3300 (the lows of December), 1.3210 (the Fibonacci level 23.6% of correction to the decline of the GBP / USD pair in the wave, which began in July 2014 near the level of 1.7200). The breakdown of the key support level 1.3150 (EMA200 on the daily chart, EMA50 on the weekly chart) will return GBP / USD in to the global downtrend began in July 2014.
Support levels: 1.3520, 1.3420, 1.3300, 1.3210, 1.3150
Resistance levels: 1.3550, 1.3630, 1.3700, 1.3970, 1.4050

EUR/USD: euro decline is suspended
11/01/2018
Current dynamics

As the statistical agency Eurostat reported on Thursday, industrial production in the Eurozone rose by 1.0% in November (+ 3.2% in annual terms). The forecast of economists assumed an increase of 0.6% (+ 2.9% compared to the same period of the previous year).
Eurostat also raised the estimate of industrial production growth in the Eurozone for October.
In December, the purchasing managers' index (PMI) for the Eurozone's manufacturing sector reached its highest level in the history of such observations (since mid-1997).
The increase in investment costs of companies has contributed to the strongest growth in the Eurozone economy since 2007. The growth of industrial production at the moment is the strongest since August 2011.
It is worth noting at the same time that such a strong growth in industrial production of the Eurozone is provided, mainly at the expense of Germany, where in November industrial production grew by 3.6% compared to the previous month.
The data also show that the bullish economic trend persists in Germany. The surplus of the country's budget in 2017 amounted to 1.2% of GDP. The Bureau of Statistics Eurostat reported that Germany's GDP increased by 2.2% last year.
The euro reacted rather sluggishly to the data presented, and the pair EUR / USD is trading today in the range near the 1.1950 mark.
At the beginning of the year, the EUR / USD rose above 1.2070, however, subsequently fell to current levels. Investors are still cautious about buying euro against the dollar with EUR / USD rising above the level of 1.2000. ECB executives may fear that the strengthening of the euro could have a negative impact on the recovery of the Eurozone economy.
Market participants expect that the minutes of the December meeting of the ECB (will be published at 12:30 GMT) will demonstrate "fairly neutral" rhetoric of the ECB leaders.
If, however, the number of supporters of policy tightening in the Governing Council of the ECB grows, then it will exert increasing pressure on the ECB towards faster completion of monetary stimulus.
And this is a positive factor for euro buyers and its further growth. In general, we can say that the positive dynamics of EUR / USD remains. As far as leaders are tolerant with respect to the growth of the EUR / USD pair towards 1.2400, 1.2500, it is likely to become clearer from the published protocols.
Meanwhile, the US dollar rose on Thursday after the drop on Wednesday, when China denied media reports that Beijing could cut or stop purchases of US government bonds. This, in particular, was reported in the agency Bloomberg News.
The dollar index DXY rose by 0.2%, to 92.46. However, the cautious-negative attitude to the dollar on the part of investors remains; any upward correction in the DXY index is likely to be limited to 93.00 and used to build short positions in the dollar.

Support and resistance levels
The pair EUR / USD remains positive dynamics, trading in the ascending channels on the daily and weekly charts.
At the beginning of the European session, the pair EUR / USD is trading in the range near 1.1950, below the short-term resistance level 1.1970 (EMA200 on the 1-hour chart). The reduction to support levels 1.1855 (EMA50 and the bottom line of the upward channel on the daily chart), 1.1800 is corrective.
So far, long positions are preferable. In case of breakdown of the local resistance level 1.1970, the EUR / USD pair growth will resume with the nearest target near the resistance level 1.2100 (the upper line of the rising channel on the daily chart).
Only in case of breakdown of the key support levels 1.1660 (EMA200 on the weekly chart), 1.1585 (EMA200 on the daily chart) can we speak about the reversal of the bullish trend of the EUR / USD pair.
Support levels: 1.1890, 1.1855, 1.1800, 1.1780, 1.1710, 1.1660, 1.1585
Resistance levels: 1.1970, 1.2000, 1.2100, 1.2180, 1.2320, 1.2430

S&P500: indexes continue to update highs
12/01/2018
Current dynamics

While the dollar continues to scale down, the rally in the US stock market continues. On Friday, the main US indices reached new record highs, having successfully started in 2018.
Against the backdrop of the continued confidence of investors that companies will report again on the strong profit growth for the last quarter of 2017, the American stock market continues its rapid growth, which began in January 2016.
According to FactSet, the profits of companies from the S & P500 in the fourth quarter increased by about 11%. JPMorgan Chase & amp; Co. and Wells Fargo & amp; Co., part of the financial sector S & P500, today the first of the leading US banks will report on quarterly results. Economists expect profit growth.
Investors also continue to assess the impact of the recently adopted tax bill on the US economy.
Today, investors will follow the publication (at 13:30 GMT) of US consumer inflation data. According to the forecast, retail sales in the US are expected to grow by 0.5% in December (+ 0.8%, according to the previous release, and + 0.2% in November), CPI grew by 2.1% (in annual terms).
Nevertheless, signs of a sharp increase in inflation are still few. So, the US producer price index (PPI) for December, published on Thursday, decreased by 0.1%.
The threat that the current state of inflation may become a catalyst for the reversal of the bullish trend in the stock market is not yet relevant.
The Fed said about 3 rate increases in 2018. Nevertheless, the Fed may slow the rate of rate hikes if inflation continues to be weak and macroeconomic indicators will deteriorate. Soft monetary policy will contribute to the further growth of the US stock market. Thus, soft monetary policy, expectations of economic growth amid the new tax policy, and strong reporting by US companies continue to stimulate purchases of US stock assets.

AUD/USD: a day off in the US
15/01/2018
Current dynamics

Published on Friday, the macro data, pointed to the growth of inflation in the US. According to the US Ministry of Labor, CPI in December rose by 0.1% compared to the previous month, the base CPI index excluding food and energy prices increased by 0.3% (+1.8% in annual expression). Economists expect that by April, annual inflation will be above 2%. This is the most important fundamental factor, as the FRS relies on this basic CPI index when assessing the need for tightening monetary policy.
Janet Yellen, leaving the post of the head of the Federal Reserve on February, said earlier that the weakness of inflation observed last year is a temporary phenomenon. The growth of inflationary pressures against the backdrop of a stable labor market and positive macro statistics gives the Fed the opportunity to raise rates this year at least three times, as expected.
At the moment, the dollar is falling large.
The US dollar index DXY fell to its lowest level since December 2014. This was promoted, first of all, by the growth of the euro. Published on Thursday, the ECB's protocols showed that leaders at the beginning of this year can change the targets of leading indicators if economic growth remains strong. Expectations of tightening monetary policy outside the United States, especially in the Eurozone, contributed to the weakening of the dollar and the growth of the euro.
The euro in the basket of 6 currencies in the dollar index DXY takes about 57%, and its growth contributes to an active decline in the dollar.
However, investors probably can underestimate the Fed's determination to raise interest rates.
In addition, the tax reform and the consistently low unemployment rate in the US (about 4.1%) create the preconditions for accelerating the growth of wages, and this is also a factor that accelerates consumer inflation. There is a high probability that in the current year rates can be raised not three, but four times.
There may be a situation where investors, skeptical about inflation and raising rates in the US, will be taken by surprise when the Fed starts raising rates quarterly, and the bearish trend of the dollar against this background will suddenly be broken.
In conditions of an increase in the interest rate, the investment attractiveness of the dollar will grow.
Meanwhile, this week investors will focus on the publication of inflation indicators in Germany and the UK (Tuesday), the Eurozone (Wednesday), China's GDP (Thursday), the Bank of Canada decision on the interest rate (Wednesday), the publication of the Beige Book Fed (Wednesday) and data from the Australian labor market (Thursday 00:30 GMT).
Economists expect that data on employment in Australia for December will be weak. Unemployment will remain at the same level of 5.4% and an excess of labor resources will remain.
It is likely that the RBA is unlikely to decide to change the current monetary policy in conditions of weak growth in the labor market and the purchasing power of the population. While the growth rate of wages in the country will not grow, the RBA will not go on raising the interest rate, despite the emerging trend towards an early tightening of monetary policies in other major world central banks.
The current growth in the AUD / USD pair is explained, first of all, by the weakening of the US dollar. If the ratio of investors to the US dollar starts to change for the better, then the bullish trend of the AUD / USD pair will not stand.
At the moment, the number of short speculative positions on the AUD / USD pair in the foreign exchange market is 90%.
Today in the US, a day off, US stock exchanges do not work, and against a background of a reduced volume of trades, large players can push the quotes of the AUD / USD pair even higher.
Well, tomorrow, with the opening of the Asian session, the situation may change in the opposite direction. It is necessary to be vigilant when building long positions in the AUD / USD pair.

NZD/USD: amid rising commodity prices
16/01/2018
Current dynamics

On the eve, the DXY dollar index has reached its minimum for more than three years near the 90.13 mark, and for the year of 2017 the index has decreased by almost 10%, which was the strongest annual decline since 2003. At the beginning of the European session, the DXY index is near the 90.50 mark.
After a many-day decline today for the first time there is a recovery in the US dollar.
In general, the negative attitude of investors to the US dollar remains. Expectations that soon the world's largest central banks will begin to wind down their stimulus programs for national economies and begin to raise interest rates, increase the attractiveness of major world currencies and reduce the attractiveness of the dollar.
After strong growth over a period of ten years, American stock markets are receding into the background, and the largest regional stock markets, such as the European and Japanese stock markets, are coming to the fore. And this increases the demand for the euro and yen, for which the national stock assets are acquired. In this sense, commodity currencies, such as Canadian, Australian and New Zealand dollars, which are especially sensitive to the cost of primary commodities on the world market, also keep pace. The observed large-scale weakening of the US dollar contributes to higher commodity prices. This fully applies to oil and gas, metallic ores, as well as to agricultural products.
The main part of the New Zealand economy is the timber and agricultural complex, and a significant part of the New Zealand export is dairy products, primarily milk powder.
In the last 203-th auction GDT (Global Dairy Trade), held on January 2, 2018, the price index for dairy products increased by 2.2%. Prices for powdered milk increased by 4.2%. The weighted average world price for dairy products was 3,124 USD / kg. And, although the prices are on average lower than the prices for the level of a year ago, there has recently been a slight increase in the price of dairy products. This, in particular, is contributed by the weakening of the US dollar, as commodity prices are mainly in US dollars.
The general elections in New Zealand that took place at the end of September, as a result of which the conservative government, which achieved significant growth in the New Zealand economy, resigned, led to the fall of the New Zealand dollar. The business-sentiment of producers in the agricultural sector, the leading industry in New Zealand's economy, is still at a low level, reflecting a negative reaction to the new government.
Nevertheless, the NZD / USD pair recovered completely after the fall against the background of the September elections in New Zealand. This was facilitated also by the weakening of the US dollar/
So far, the negative attitude of investors to the US dollar remains, and the positive dynamics of the pair NZD / USD still prevails.
From the news for today, we are waiting for the publication of the results of the next dairy auction (in the period after 14:00 GMT). Two weeks ago, the price index for dairy products, prepared by Global Dairy Trade, came out with a value of 2.2% (against the previous value of + 0.4%). If the prices for dairy products rise again, the New Zealand dollar will strengthen, including in the pair NZD / USD. The decline in world prices for dairy products will hurt the quotations of the New Zealand dollar.

USD/CAD: probability of rate hike is high
17/01/2018
Current dynamics

Despite the fact that the probability of today's interest rate increase in Canada is high, the Canadian dollar declined during the Asian session, and the pair USD / CAD rose today to 1.2460. In December, the Bank of Canada kept its interest rate at 1.0% after doubling it during 2017. The head of the Bank of Canada Poloz said that when making decisions, the central bank will be guided by incoming economic data.
The current level of inflation in Canada is below the target level of 2.0%. Nevertheless, ignoring a strong labor market and rising oil prices, Canada's main export commodity, is unlikely to work either.
Most economists agree that today the Bank of Canada will raise the rate by 0.25% to 1.25%. It is likely that the Canadian dollar will strengthen on this event. However, further dynamics will depend on what the leaders of the Bank of Canada will say in the accompanying statement. If the Bank of Canada indicates that further increases will depend on the data, the upward momentum of the Canadian currency may soon weaken, while the USD / CAD pair will stop falling.
If the accompanying statement points out improvements in the economy and signals about plans for further tightening, the Canadian dollar will continue to rise. In general, today's rate increase is already taken into account in prices. Only signals about further tightening of monetary policy in Canada will cause a significant strengthening of the Canadian dollar.
The press conference of the Bank of Canada will begin at 16:15 (GMT), and the publication of the decision on the rate is scheduled for 15:00 (GMT).
Later (at 19:00) will be published economic review "Beige Book". The publication of this report by the Fed usually does not have a strong impact on markets. Nevertheless, this document will contain a look at the current state of the economy, from the point of view of leading economists, analysts, representatives of US business.

NZD/USD: US dollar received support
18/01/2018
Current dynamics

Today, the dollar gained support and grew at the beginning of the Asian trading session. On Wednesday, Fed representatives, Robert Kaplan and Loretta Mester, spoke in favor of raising interest rates. They expect acceleration in the growth of the US economy and inflation. According to Robert Kaplan, inflationary pressures are "growing", and it will be better if the Fed starts raising rates "sooner rather than later".
Apple announced on Wednesday that it would repatriate most of the profits it received abroad. Under the new tax laws, US companies that make profits outside the US will be able to pay a one-time tax of 15.5% of the repatriated assets. Apple said that the company will pay a one-time tax of $ 38 billion as a result of the repatriation of its foreign cash. If other large American companies follow Apple's example, this will increase demand for the dollar.
Nevertheless, the negative mood of investors regarding the dollar is still preserved. The growth of the world economy outside the US will support the currencies of other countries where econic growth is expected, and will cause their strengthening against the dollar.
At 13:30 (GMT) macro data from the United States will be published. The publication of the report of the US Department of Labor about the change in the number of initial applications for unemployment benefits for the last week is expected, according to which the number of initial applications for unemployment fell to 250,000 (against 261,000 in the week before last). The result higher than expected will indicate the weakness of the labor market, which will negatively affect the US dollar. If the data is confirmed, it should positively affect the dollar. The consistently low level of applications for unemployment benefits is one of the signs of a strong labor market.
Also at this time will be published indicators of activity in the real estate market in the US in December, as well as the index of business activity in the manufacturing sector of the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia in January.
At 21:30 (GMT) index of business activity in the manufacturing sector (PMI) of New Zealand, assessing conditions in the business environment of the country, will be published. The production PMI is considered an important indicator of general economic conditions. In November, the PMI was 57.2. If the updated data for December will be better than November's value, the New Zealand dollar will strengthen, including in the pair NZD / USD.

Support and resistance levels
Yesterday, the NZD / USD upgraded the 2-month high near the 0.7330 mark and today again develops an upward move. So far, the negative attitude of investors to the US dollar remains, and the positive dynamics of the NZD / USD still prevails. The breakdown of the local resistance level of 0.7330 (January highs) will cause growth towards resistance levels of 0.7430 (September highs), 0.7550 Fibonacci level of 50%).
The signal to the resumption of sales of the NZD / USD will be a breakdown of the support level of 0.7240 (EMA200 on the weekly chart, EMA200 on the 1-hour chart and the bottom line of the upward channel on the 4-hour chart, and the Fibonacci level of 38.2%).
The purpose of the downward correction is the most important support level 0.7090 (EMA200 on the daily and monthly charts, EMA50 on the weekly chart).
The breakdown of support levels 0.6865 (the Fibonacci level 23.6% of the upward correction to the global wave of decline of the pair from the level of 0.8800, which began in July 2014, here are the minimums of December 2016), 0.6800 will mean the end of the upward correction, which began in September 2015, and return to the global downtrend.
Support levels: 0.7240, 0.7200, 0.7090, 0.7000, 0.6865, 0.6800
Resistance levels: 0.7330, 0.7430, 0.7550

Buy Stop 0.7340. Stop-Loss 0.7230. Take-Profit 0.7400, 0.7430, 0.7550

GBP/USD: correction on the dollar
19/01/2018
Current dynamics

The House of Representatives of the US Congress extended government funding until February 16. This is the fourth resolution on the provisional financing of the federal government. The issue of the suspension of the US government for the time being removed from the agenda.
If the Senate and the House of Representatives can not agree on the procedure for financing the government, then state institutions will be closed, and their employees will go on temporary unpaid leave. So it was already in 2013 because of the budget crisis.
The dollar received a temporary respite. Nevertheless, investors are following developments. On the second half of the trading day, the economic calendar is empty, there is no important news.
Therefore, the dynamics of the dollar will, in the main, be determined by technical analysis.
And on most charts of dollar currency pairs, the dollar is oversold. In the middle of the European session, there is already a technical correction, and the dollar is growing against most of the competing currencies, including against the pound.
After today (09:30 GMT), the UK National Statistics Office presented updated data on retail sales for December, which were worse than the previous release and forecast, the pound fell in the foreign exchange market.
In December, according to the report, retail sales in the UK fell by 1.5% with a forecast of a decrease of 0.8%. Reduction of retail sales in December was the strongest since June 2016, when the referendum on withdrawal from the EU was held. It also became the sharpest for December in seven years. This is a bad sign for the pound and the British economy, focused mainly on the domestic market. In the fourth quarter of 2017, retail sales, according to the National Bureau of Statistics, failed to make almost no positive contribution to GDP growth.
Until now, the large-scale weakening of the US currency contributed to the active growth of the GBP / USD pair after the referendum on Brexit.
The negative attitude of investors to the dollar remains, despite the adoption of new tax laws in the US and the Fed's determination to further tighten monetary policy. Most likely, after the "working off" of the upward correction, the dollar will resume its decline. And for the pound, more important than today's publication on retail sales, will be the publication of data on the wages of the British, expected next week.

EUR/USD: the pair gets double support today
22/01/2018
Current dynamics

Analyzing the consequences of the temporary cessation of the work of the US government, investors reacted with restraint to the news that on Sunday the senators did not agree on voting for the bill on financing the government for one month. Pause in the work of the US government is unlikely to become a threat to the global economy, however, the major US stock indices and the dollar are moderately declining on Monday.
Last week, the dollar index DXY reached a multi-month low near the mark of 90.15, and today DXY again decreases, being at the beginning of the European session near the 90.20 mark. Meanwhile, the yield on 10-year US Treasury bonds grew on Monday to 2.651% from Friday's level of 2.639%, which was the maximum for the end of the session since July 2014. The dollar receives support from the growth of yield on US bonds, restrainedly declining in the foreign exchange market, even on an unfavorable domestic political background in the United States.
Meanwhile, as it became known from media reports, on Sunday the Social Democratic Party of Germany, which adheres to the center-left views, agreed to negotiations with the conservative bloc of Angela Merkel on the creation of a coalition. Thus, the domestic political situation in Germany, whose economy is leading in Europe and the Eurozone, has improved, and Merkel overcame a key obstacle in an attempt to form the government for the fourth time.
Thus, the EUR / USD is receiving double support today and is growing again at the beginning of the European session after the pair opened today's trading day with a gap up, reaching 1.2268.
The focus of investors who trade the euro will be the ECB meeting on monetary policy, which will be held on Thursday. Also this week is expected a large amount of macro data on the economy of the Eurozone. On Tuesday (10:00 GMT), the ZEW Research Institute will release a January report on business sentiment and expectations in Germany. On Wednesday, PMI (preliminary release) indices for the manufacturing and service sectors of France, Germany and the Eurozone will be published. On Thursday, the indices GfK and Ifo of the sentiment in the economy of Germany will be published. On the same day, at 12:45 (GMT), the ECB's interest rate decision will be published. It is expected that the current monetary policy of the ECB will remain unchanged, and ECB President Mario Draghi will favor the preservation of a soft monetary policy. The press conference of the ECB will begin on Thursday at 13:30 (GMT). On Friday, investors will be waiting for data on consumer confidence and business sentiment in France, as well as data on the euro money supply M3 and consumer lending (08:00 GMT). Thus, a very volatile trading week is expected.
Meanwhile, the EUR/USD keeps positive dynamics, trading in the zone of multi-month highs, above the important support level of 1.2200, which corresponds to the Fibonacci level 50% of correction to the fall from the level of 1.3900, which began in May 2014.

USD/JPY: The Bank of Japan left monetary policy unchanged
23/01/2018
Current dynamics

As expected, the Bank of Japan left all three monetary policy goals unchanged during today's meeting. The report of the Bank of Japan said that expectations about the pace of economic growth and inflation remained the same, while in December the bank said that they are "in the phase of weakening". In the course of his speech, the Governor of the Bank of Japan Haruhiko Kuroda stated that "we have not yet reached the point at which we should discuss the exit from monetary stimulus". The Japanese stock index Nikkei added 1.3% and for the first time since November 1991 closed above 24000 points, even despite the strengthening of the yen.
During the European session, the pair USD / JPY continued to decline. The dollar has only briefly received a breather by resolving a potential crisis with funding from the US government. As it became known, yesterday the Senators approved the bill on provisional financing of the government until February 8. Nevertheless, the restrained-negative attitude to the dollar on the part of investors remains, which is facilitated both by the internal political tensions in the US and by the expectations of a faster growth of the economy outside the United States, especially in countries with the world's largest economies.
At the beginning of today's European session, the DXY dollar index is near the 90.25 mark, while last week DXY reached a multi-month low near the 90.15 mark.
For today, important news on the US is not planned for publication. At 23:50 (GMT), the Ministry of Finance of Japan will publish a report with data on imports and exports, as well as the overall trade balance for December. The trade balance surplus and exports (+ 10%) of Japan are expected to increase, which will positively affect both the yen and the Japanese stock market.

GBP/USD: Dollar expects further weakening
24/01/2018
Current dynamics

On Wednesday, the US dollar continued to decline. Concerns about US protectionist trade policies have come to the fore once after US President Trump threatened trade barriers to Chinese goods. After that, the media reported that China intends to start getting rid of US government bonds, which led to a sharp short-term drop in the dollar. So far, the US has not imposed additional duties on imports from China. Nevertheless, on Monday, the administration of the US president announced the introduction of duties on the import of cheap solar batteries and washing machines that are produced in other countries in Asia. And this, according to the American leadership, is only the first such step in the sphere of trade.
The yield of 10-year US Treasury bonds is growing, rising to a 3-year high of 2.63%. However, this does not support the dollar, which is actively falling against the basket of other major currencies. So, during today's European session, the dollar index DXY reached a new multi-month low near the 89.50 mark, falling below the key level of 90.00.
It is likely that in the next few months we should wait for the continuation in the US of the policy of trade restrictions on imported goods, including from China. This should lead, theoretically, to reciprocal measures on the part of the PRC. The escalation of tensions between the US and Asian countries, primarily with China, against the backdrop of the protectionist trade policy of the White House will lead to an even weaker dollar. Moreover, a cheaper dollar is beneficial to the US economy. A strong national currency has a negative impact on the US economy, making US exports less affordable for overseas buyers. Trump has repeatedly stated that the US foreign trade deficit has reached an impressive $ 500 billion precisely for this reason.
On Monday, economists at the Institute of International Finance (IIF) reported that, according to their calculations, the US dollar is still overvalued by about 10%, despite the fact that last year the dollar has already decreased by 7% against a basket of 16 currencies tracked by Wall Street Journal. Thus, we should expect further weakening of the dollar.
Of the news for today, it is worth paying attention to the publication at 14:45 (GMT) of business activity indexes (PMI) in the services sector and manufacturing sector in the US for January. The publication of indicators with strong values is expected. If they exceed their expectations, the dollar may strengthen for a moment.
From the fundamental point of view, we should expect further weakening of the dollar.
Meanwhile, at 09:30 (GMT), data from the British labor market was published, indicating that the unemployment rate in November was 4.3%, which is the minimum for the past 40 years. The number of new jobs also reached a record high, while the number of unemployed fell to a minimum in more than 15 years. Such data was cited by the National Statistics Office of Great Britain.
However, higher demand for labor did not lead to an acceleration in the growth of wages of the British. The worsening of the financial situation of consumers after the referendum on Brexit, apparently, continues.
Nevertheless, the pound reacted with growth on the data presented. The GBP / USD pair updated the annual and multi-month high near the 1.4115 mark. For the last time at this point, the pair GBP / USD was at the end of June 2016, on the eve of the referendum on Brexit.

EUR/USD: what will Mario Draghi now say?
25/01/2018
Current dynamics

Unconditional center of attention of traders today is the meeting devoted to the issues of monetary policy and the ECB press conference. The probability that the ECB's current basic interest rates will remain at the same level (the key rate is 0%, the deposit rate is -0.4%), and the volume of purchases of European assets is at the level of 30 billion euros per month, close to 100 %.
Meanwhile, the dollar continues to scale down. This week, the dollar received additional impetus to the fall from the Institute of International Finance (IIF), which said that the US dollar, according to their calculations, is still overvalued by about 10%, from the administration of the US president who signed decrees on limiting the import of cheap Asian goods,
as well as from the US Treasury Secretary Stephen Mnuchin, who announced at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland that "a weaker dollar has a positive effect on trade".
Over the past 3 weeks, the dollar index DXY fell 3.3% to 88.8 points, to a three-year low (from December 2014). The euro strengthened over these three weeks to the dollar at the same 3.3% (the euro's share in the basket of the DXY index is about 58%).
Undoubtedly, the Eurodollar has grown in recent months not only due to the weakening of the dollar, but also due to the growth of the economy of the Eurozone, which is ahead of the growth rate of the American economy.
However, a strong euro is also not needed by the European economy, as a strong dollar - to the US economy. This, in full measure, refers to other major world economies. It is not excluded that after the strengthening of national currencies to the dollar, the world's central banks will undertake retaliatory actions.
Investors today will closely monitor what Mario Draghi will say about the strengthened euro and the prospects of the QE program in the Eurozone. Given the current strengthening of the euro against the dollar, Mario Draghi is unlikely to talk about curtailing the stimulus program for the European economy and will try to cool the zeal of euro buyers.
If "Eurobulls" will be disappointed with Draghi's speech, then the EUR / USD pair may be corrected. Nevertheless, in the medium term, the pair EUR / USD should continue to grow.
Investors will still try to understand today how much the ECB's attitude towards the strengthening of the Eurodollar will be tolerated. In any case, in the period from 12:45 (GMT), when the ECB's decision on the rates will be published, until 13:30, when the ECB press conference begins, a surge in volatility in financial markets is expected.

Support and resistance levels
Meanwhile, the EUR/USD keeps positive dynamics, has been trading in the zone of multi-month highs, above the important support levels of 1.2330 (EMA200 on the monthly chart), 1.2200 (Fibonacci level 50% of the correction to fall from 1.3900, which began in May 2014).
The pair EUR / USD broke yesterday the upper border of the rising channel on the daily chart and continues to trade in the upward channel on the weekly chart, which indicates a strong upward impulse. The target of further growth is resistance levels 1.2600 (Fibonacci level 61.8%), 1.2650 (the upper line of the rising channel on the weekly chart and the line of the convergent triangle on the monthly chart).
The target of the downward correction in case of breakdown of the support level 1.2360 will be support levels of 1.2200, 1.2060 (highs of 2017), 1.2000 (EMA200 on the 4-hour chart and the bottom line of the upward channel on the daily chart).
Nevertheless, long positions are still preferable. Only in case of breakdown of key support levels 1.1680 (EMA200 on the weekly chart), 1.1650 (EMA200 on the daily chart) we can speak about the reversal of the bullish trend of the EUR / USD.
Support levels: 1.2400, 1.2360, 1.2330, 1.2200, 1.2100, 1.2060, 1.2000, 1.1900, 1.1855, 1.1790, 1.1735, 1.1680, 1.1650

S&P500: US stock indexes are still growing
26/01/2018
Current dynamics

During the US trading session on Thursday, US President Trump, in an interview with CNBC at the International Economic Forum in Davos, said that "the dollar will become stronger and stronger, and I want to see a strong dollar after all". This statement by Trump goes against his last year's statements about the usefulness of a cheap dollar for the more successful promotion of American goods to the foreign market. This, in particular, and the US Treasury Secretary Stephen Mnuchin said on Wednesday. In his opinion, "a weaker dollar has a positive effect on trade".
After yesterday's statement by Trump, the dollar jumped sharply in price, and the EUR / USD pair decreased by 120 points in a moment. Nevertheless, during the Asian session on Friday, the pressure on the dollar resumed, and its decline continued with renewed vigor.
The dollar index of the Wall Street Journal, which tracks the rate of the US currency against the basket of 16 other major currencies, fell 0.5% at the beginning of the session on Friday. Since the beginning of the year, the dollar index DXY fell by 3.3% to 88.3 points, to a three-year low (from December 2014). At the beginning of the European session DXY is near the mark of 88.70.
According to market participants, the large-scale decline in the dollar will continue. The reasons for the reversal of its bearish trend so far there.
At the same time, the US stock market continues to grow. This is facilitated by both a weak dollar and positive corporate reporting by US companies.
Rally on the US stock market continues. On Friday, the main US indices reached new record highs, having successfully started in 2018.
Investors also continue to assess the impact of the recently adopted tax bill on the US economy.
Traders are preparing for the performance of Trump in Davos, which will be held today at 13:00 (GMT).
Market participants are also waiting for preliminary data on US GDP for the 4th quarter. According to the forecast of economists, GDP growth in the 4th quarter was 2.9% - 3.0% per annum. This will be another high indicator. Data on US GDP will be published at 13:30 (GMT).
Strong growth in the US economy will be another factor in favor of further growth of US stock indices.

EUR/USD: there is an eventful week
29/01/2018
Current dynamics

On Monday, the dollar makes an attempt to adjust after a long day's fall. The dollar index DXY recovered to the beginning of the European session, halving the Friday's decline and reaching the level of 89.10. On Friday, the dollar closed with a decline for the seventh week in a row, and this was the longest period of decline since 2010.
The index of the dollar WSJ, reflecting the value of the dollar against the basket of 16 other currencies, also rose by 0.2% on Monday, recovering slightly after falling to new 3-year lows last week.
The large-scale decline in the dollar last week was facilitated by the decision of the White House administration to impose restrictions on the importation of a number of goods produced in Asian countries in the US, as well as the statement of US Treasury Secretary Stephen Mnuchin that "the weakening of the dollar is favorable for trade". Despite the current correction, the dollar remains vulnerable. The negative attitude of investors towards the dollar is preserved, and its bearish trend remains predominant.
A series of important economic news are expected to come out this week, beginning with the Fed meeting, ending with the publication on Friday of data from the US labor market for January. In view of this, volatility in the financial markets will continue to be increased.
With regard to the Eurozone, it is worthwhile to pay attention to the publication on Tuesday of preliminary data on Eurozone and France GDP for the 4th quarter (10:00 GMT) and consumer price inflation data in Germany for January (13:00 GMT). On Wednesday (10:00 GMT) report on inflation in the Eurozone for January, as well as data on employment in the Eurozone and Germany (09:00 GMT) for January, will be published. On Thursday, the PMI is expected for the manufacturing sector in Italy, France, Germany (08:45, 08:50, 08:55 (GMT), respectively), Euro zone (09:00) from Markit. Data on consumer inflation in Italy and producer prices in the Eurozone will come out on Friday (10:00 GMT).
However, the focus of traders will be the publication on Friday (13:30 GMT) of data from the US labor market in January. It is expected that the number of jobs outside agriculture increased by 175,000, which is above the average for six months of 166,000 (the previous value was +148,000). Unemployment remained at 4.1% in January, hourly wages of Americans increased by 0.3%.
If the data is confirmed or will be better, it is worth waiting for the strengthening of the dollar. How much the dollar will be strengthened will depend on data from the US labor market and comments from the Fed's leaders on the future plans of the US Central Bank regarding its monetary policy. The publication of comments by the Federal Reserve on monetary policy is scheduled for 19:00 (GMT) on Wednesday, along with the publication of the Fed's decision on rates.

Support and resistance levels
Last week, the EUR / USD reached another multi-month high near the 1.2535 mark, continuing to move in the upward channels on the daily and weekly charts, and trying to gain a foothold in the zone above the important level of 1.2330 (EMA200 on the monthly chart).
The closest targets in the case of continued growth in EUR / USD are resistance levels 1.2600 (Fibonacci level 61.8% of correction to the fall from 1.3900, which began in May 2014), 1.2650 (the upper line of the rising channel on the weekly chart and the top line of the convergent triangle on the monthly graphics). In case of breakdown of the level of 1.2650, the agenda will raise the question of the ECB's further plans for monetary policy and how much the ECB will tolerate against a strong euro. From a technical point of view, the next medium-term target is the resistance level 1.3900 (Fibonacci level of 100%, ie the beginning of the last wave of EUR / USD decline in May 2014).
There is a strong upward momentum and a bullish trend. Long positions are preferred.
Support levels: 1.2400, 1.2360, 1.2330, 1.2200, 1.2100, 1.2060, 1.2000, 1.1920, 1.1790, 1.1735, 1.1680
Resistance levels: 1.2500, 1.2535, 1.2600, 1.2650

Trading Scenarios

Sell Stop 1.2350. Stop-Loss 1.2440. Take-Profit 1.2330, 1.2200, 1.2100, 1.2060, 1.2000, 1.1900, 1.1855, 1.1790, 1.1735, 1.1680
Buy Stop 1.2440. Stop-Loss 1.2350. Take-Profit 1.2500, 1.2535, 1.2600, 1.2650

EUR/USD: it is not easy to deploy the strong bearish trend of the dollar
30/01/2018
Current dynamics

After the growth during the Asian session on Tuesday, the dollar again began to decline at the beginning of the European session. As the data published at 10:00 GMT by Eurostat showed, the Eurozone GDP growth in 2017 was the fastest in the last 10 years (+ 2.5% vs. + 1.8% in 2016).
The index of consumer confidence in the Eurozone in January rose to 1.3 against 0.5 in December. The index of business optimism in the industry of the Eurozone in January 8.8, in the service sector 16.7 against 18.0 in December. The Eurozone economy demonstrates excellent growth rates, and the high level of consumer confidence in the Eurozone also indicates economic growth and strengthens the euro.
At the beginning of the European session, data on France's GDP were published, and according to the French national statistics agency Insee data, the GDP of the second largest economy of the Eurozone in 2017 grew by 1.9% compared to the previous year. The growth rate of the French economy accelerated sharply in 2017. The GDP of France has shown the most significant increase since 2011. The improvement of the economic situation in France was promoted by the policy of the European Central Bank aimed at stimulating the country's economy, as well as increasing consumer confidence caused by the election of Emmanuel Macron as French president. Macron spoke during his election campaign for France's further membership in the European Union and the strengthening of economic rapprochement with Germany. His convincing victory speaks of the centripetal sentiment of French citizens towards the European Union. Companies and investors have favorably taken steps to reduce taxes and eliminate bureaucratic obstacles. The revival of the French economy contributed to the growth of the economy of the entire monetary block to the highest level since 2007.
On the day when the results of the second round of elections in France became known, where the pro-European politician Macron won the victory, the euro rose sharply. This day (May 7) can rightfully be considered the starting point for the confident growth of the euro and the EUR / USD in the second half of 2017.
The data published today confirm the fact that the European economy is growing at a faster rate than the US economy.
This once again can remind investors that other major world economies outside the US are expected to grow faster, which may contribute to a more aggressive monetary policy of world central banks. All this together can contribute to the accelerated strengthening of national currencies against the dollar.
Meanwhile, the recent contradictory statements by officials and the actions of US authorities, including US President Trump, only exacerbate the negative attitude of investors towards the dollar.
So, last Thursday, after the statement of US President Donald Trump that the US currency should be "strong", the dollar grew. A day earlier, US Treasury Secretary Stephen Mnuchin said the opposite, dropping the dollar to a new three-year low.
During the economic forum in Davos, Trump again threatened to take action against trading partners. This time he hinted at a possible response to the "very unfair" EU trade policy against the United States. "I have a lot of problems with the EU," Trump said in an interview with the British media. Earlier, Trump had repeatedly said that multilateral trade agreements discriminated against the US. He threatened to take action. All this causes concern of investors in connection with the probability of imposing restrictions on trade and unleashing the world trade war. In January, the administration of the White House has already imposed such restrictions on the importation into the United States of a number of goods produced in Asian countries.
This week, the focus of traders will be the Fed meeting and the publication on Friday of data from the US labor market. On Wednesday (19:00 GMT) the Fed will publish decision on monetary policy. It is expected that the interest rate will remain unchanged at 1.5%. Monthly data on the number of jobs outside of US agriculture, the unemployment rate and hourly pay for Americans will be published on Friday at 13:30 (GMT). Strong data are expected. Nevertheless, they are unlikely to be enough to deploy a strong bearish trend of the dollar.

USD/JPY: Bank of Japan policy will remain soft
31/01/2018
Current dynamics

Dollar index DXY rose on Tuesday to 89.45, however, at the beginning of today's European session again decreases, approaching the level of 88.80. The value of US bonds continued to decline. The yield on 10-year bonds rose on Tuesday to 2.725% (the highest level in almost four years) from 2.695% on Monday. Nevertheless, this did not help the dollar and did not allow it to consolidate the upward correction, which turned out to be very short-term.
And today, against the background of the declining yield of 10-year US bonds, the dollar is becoming cheaper again. Market participants are preparing for the main event of today - publication of the Fed decision on rates (19:00 GMT). It is widely expected that the interest rate will remain unchanged at 1.5%. Nevertheless, volatility may increase if market participants find something new in the texts of comments by the Fed regarding further plans to tighten monetary policy. In the dollar quotations, there are already 2 increases in interest rates this year. The Fed outlined three increases. More bold predictions suggest 4 increases in the rate, i.е. quarterly. The bearish trend of the dollar at the moment may be break, perhaps, just by such a scenario.
The dollar is falling, as investors expect faster economic growth rates outside the US, which will contribute to a more aggressive tightening of monetary policy by the world's largest central banks. This, in turn, will lead to the growth of national currencies against the dollar.
It is noteworthy that the dollar continues to fall even today against the yen after the Governor of the Bank of Japan Haruhiko Kuroda confirmed during today's Asian session that the Japanese central bank will continue to pursue a soft monetary policy in order to further accelerate inflation. "We are striving to achieve the target inflation rate of 2% as soon as possible, and this is facilitated by the further implementation of monetary easing", Kuroda said in a speech at the country's parliamentary committee. Thus, he tried to cool down the recent assumptions about tightening the policy. Talks about a possible increase in rates in Japan later this year contributed to the strengthening of the yen recently. "... There is a long way to go to achieve the target inflation rate of 2% ...", said one of the board members at the meeting held on January 22-23, when the Bank of Japan kept its ultra-soft monetary policy unchanged, and also kept its forecasts on inflation and GDP growth unchanged. The central bank still expects to achieve an inflation rate of 2% only by March 2020.

GBP/USD: amid rising price pressure
01/02/2018
Current dynamics

As the research company IHS Markit Ltd. reported today, the purchasing managers' index (PMI) for the UK manufacturing sector in January was 55.3 against 56.2 in December and the forecast of 56.5. Although the index values above 50 indicate activity in the manufacturing sector, the data suggest that growth in activity slowed to a 6-month low against the backdrop of rising price pressures on companies and consumers.
In January, the index became minimal since June, as the shortage of raw materials and rising prices on it against the background of the accelerated inflation in the UK after the referendum on Brexit negatively affected the release of finished products, and the costs again grew. Procurement prices grew at the fastest pace in 11 months. Brexit remains the main theme that affects the pound at the moment. At the same time, company IHS Markit Ltd., which calculates the index, reported that the index remains "well above the long-term average of 51.7" and still indicates the growth of new export orders.
The pound declined slightly after the publication of the PMI index. The positive dynamics of the pound was supported, in particular, by the head of the Bank of England Mark Carney, who in his speech in the upper house of the British parliament earlier this week said that he sees signs of accelerating the growth of wages in the UK due to higher demand for labor. "The demand for labor in the UK is growing, the pace of wage increases is accelerating", in his opinion, while "real income growth this year will resume." "Real incomes (households) this year may return to growth," added Carney. In his view, Brexit will have an impact on inflation rates for several more years, although the effect of the collapse of the British currency has already basically passed. Meanwhile, the pound remains stable against the dollar, which is growing today against the yen and commodity currencies, despite the fact that commodity and oil prices, again, have pushed up.
The dollar slightly reacted to the results of Wednesday's two-day Fed meeting, in which the Fed's interest rates were left unchanged in the range of 1.25% - 1.50%. The statement of the Fed was, on the whole, positive. The central bank signaled the strengthening of confidence in the optimistic outlook for the economy. Heads of the Fed expressed their hope that inflation will grow in 2018. "The level of employment, household expenses and companies' investments were marked by a significant growth, while the unemployment rate remained low", the Federal Reserve said in a statement.
Investors have already pawned in prices a 2-time rate increase this year. If the Fed will raise rates at a faster pace, then the dollar can break the already established multi-month negative trend. In a statement published on Wednesday the Fed has a hint that this year rates can be raised more than three times.
We are waiting for data from the USA today. In the period from 13:30 to 15:00 (GMT), data will be published on the number of initial jobless claims for the last week, labor productivity for the fourth quarter (preliminary release), PMI in the manufacturing sector of the US economy and gradual acceleration of inflation.
The dollar may continue its corrective growth if the data prove to be better than the forecast, while the GBP / USD will turn south, for now - in the short term while.

S&P500: investors are nervous, US stock indices are falling
02/02/2018
Current dynamics

After the Fed meeting this week, investors are preparing to publishing data from the US labor market for January. Publication of data is scheduled for 13:30 (GMT). Strong data are expected. Thus, unemployment, according to economists, in January remained at the level of 4.1%.
This is the lowest value in 17 years. Moreover, many economists expect that during 2018, unemployment in the US may fall below 4%. This has not been observed since 2000.
A strong US labor market is becoming the most important factor in the growth of the US economy.
According to the US Department of Labor on Thursday, the number of initial applications for unemployment benefits for the week from 21 to 27 January fell by 1,000 and amounted to 230,000 (last year it was projected 238,000 and 231,000 applications). In January, the number of applications reached the lowest level in almost 45 years. The number of applications below the level of 300,000 has been observed for almost three years. This is the longest series since the 1970s.
Low unemployment indicates an increase in demand for labor resources for US companies, which in turn will contribute to higher wages for employees. And this will lead to an increase in consumer spending, GDP and inflation, which the Fed was so eager for.
Other articles of the report of the US Department of Labor are also expected with high efficiency. So,
hourly wages of Americans increased by 0.3% (+ 2.6% in annual terms), and the number of jobs outside of agriculture in January increased by 180 thousand (previous value is +148 thousand), which is above the average for six months 166,000.
The dollar is growing with the opening of today's trading day. The dollar index DXY, reflecting its value relative to the basket of 6 other currencies, also grows after its fall to a level of multi-month lows near the mark of 88.25. At the beginning of the European session on Friday, DXY has already risen to the level of 88.70.
It seems that investors are serious about the growth of the dollar after a strong report from the US labor market. Well, in just a few hours details of the report of the US Department of Labor for January will be known. If the data really turn out to be strong, then the dollar will continue to grow, but, according to many market participants, it will continue to be limited.
Meanwhile, US and world stock markets are declining before the publication of the monthly US labor market report and after the publication of disappointing corporate reports and the sale of government bonds. Stoxx Europe 600 in the early trading lost 0.6% after the decline in the Japanese market.
Despite the fact that US indices remain at a record level, investors are beginning to get nervous against the backdrop of the growing yield of US government bonds, which reached multi-year highs. Thus, the yield on 10-year US bonds rose to 2.796% from 2.792% on Thursday and 2.712% on Wednesday (the highest level in almost four years).
Participants in the stock markets are beginning to understand that the yield of government bonds is growing, which makes the Fed easier to raise interest rates, which is a negative factor for the stock market.

GBP/USD: on the eve of the meeting of the Bank of England
05/02/2018
Current dynamics


After the publication today (09:30 GMT) of data indicating that the growth of activity in the service sector of the UK in January slowed to a 16-month low, the pound declined. The index of supply managers (PMI) for the services sector of the UK economy fell in January to 53.0 from 54.2 in December (the forecast was 54.3). The data on the service sector was preceded by disappointing statistics on activity in the manufacturing and construction sectors, published the previous week. As the research company IHS Markit Ltd. reported last week, the purchasing managers' index (PMI) for the UK manufacturing sector in January was 55.3 against 56.2 in December and the forecast of 56.5. The data presented indicate that the growth in activity in the manufacturing sector also slowed to a 6-month low against the backdrop of rising price pressures on companies and consumers.
The slowdown in activity growth in all important sectors of the economy signals to the Bank of England about the need for continued soft monetary policy.
The nearest meeting of the Bank of England, dedicated to interest rates, will be held on Thursday. The decision on the interest rate of the Bank of England will be published at 12:00 (GMT). Market participants take into account the 50% probability of increasing the Bank of England's key interest rate in the first half of the year and 2-3 increases by 0.25% each time for three years.
Nevertheless, the Bank of England can maintain the current soft monetary policy, given the slowdown in the most important sectors of the British economy, despite the sharp increase in inflation after the referendum on Brexit.
Meanwhile, the dollar holds the positions gained on Friday in the foreign exchange market after the strong US labor market data for January, published on Friday, strengthened expectations that inflation growth could lead to a more rapid tightening of monetary policy in the US.
The growth of hourly earnings in the private sector in January in the annual comparison was the highest since June 2009 and amounted to 2.9% (in annual terms). At the same time, unemployment in the US in January remained at the same level of 4.1%, and the number of new jobs in the non-agricultural sector of the US economy was 200,000 in January (the forecast was +180,000).
At the meeting of the Fed held in late January, its leaders expressed their hope that inflation will grow in 2018. "The level of employment, household expenses and companies' investments were marked by a significant growth, while the unemployment rate remained low", the Federal Reserve said in a statement.
Thus, if the Bank of England signals about the need to continue to maintain a soft monetary policy, the pound may weaken, and the GBP / USD pair is in danger of breaking the bullish trend that began in January 2017.
From how aggressive the statements of the members of the Committee on Monetary Policy of the Bank of England will be, the dynamics of the pound will depend after the meeting of the Bank of England.

NZD/USD: pending RBNZ decision on rates
06/02/2018
Current dynamics

Against the backdrop of negative events taking place in the world stock markets, today's decision of the RB of Australia to keep the current interest rate at the previous level of 1.5% remained almost unnoticed. On Tuesday, at the first meeting this year, the Reserve Bank of Australia left a key interest rate at a record low for the RBA of 1.5%. At this level, the rate has been already in place since mid-2016. The inactivity of the RBA contrasts sharply with the propensity of the Fed, the ECB and the Bank of England to tighten monetary and credit policy.
This week, two of the world's largest banks make a decision regarding monetary policy. On Wednesday (20:00 GMT), the RB of New Zealand decides on the interest rate, and on Thursday (12:00 GMT) decision on this matter will be announced by the Bank of England. As expected, both central banks will not change the current monetary policy; the rate in New Zealand will remain at the same level of 1.75%. Earlier in the RBNZ repeatedly stated that against the backdrop of "a lot of uncertainties" monetary policy "will remain soft in the foreseeable future", but "can be adjusted accordingly", if necessary. For a stable recovery in New Zealand's economy and rising inflation, "a lower New Zealand dollar rate is needed".
At 21:00 (GMT) on Wednesday the RBNZ press conference will begin, during which the representative of the RBNZ leadership Grant Spencer, who is the acting manager (his term of office in the RBNZ management came into force on September 27, 2017 and will end on March 26, 2018) , will make an explanation about the decision taken by the bank. His speeches often serve as an unofficial source of information on the further direction of the RBNZ monetary policy. In his view, the country's monetary policy should correlate with the dynamics of employment and financial stability of the state, rather than inflation.
From the news for today, we are waiting for the publication of the results of the next dairy auction (in the period after 14:00 GMT). The main part of the New Zealand economy is the timber and agricultural complex, and a significant part of the New Zealand export is dairy products, primarily milk powder. Two weeks ago, the price index for dairy products, prepared by Global Dairy Trade, came out with a value of +4.9% (against previous values of + 2.2% and + 0.4%). If the prices for dairy products rise again, the New Zealand dollar will strengthen, including in the pair NZD / USD. The decline in world prices for dairy products will hurt the quotations of the New Zealand dollar.
From the news on the United States today, it is worth paying attention to the speech (at 13:50 GMT) of the representative of the Fed and member of the FRS Committee on Open Markets, James Bullard, as well as the publication at 13:30 (GMT) of data on the US foreign trade balance for December. The deficit is expected to grow to -52 billion dollars from -50.5 billion dollars, fixed in November. This is a negative signal for the US dollar.
Thus, if data on the US foreign trade balance point to an increase in the balance deficit, while world prices for dairy products will rise again, we should expect further growth of the NZD / USD pair.

GBP/USD: pound declines on the eve of the Bank of England meeting, dollar - rising
07/02/2018
Current dynamics

The US stock indexes again decline on Wednesday after some recovery on Tuesday. Futures on the DJIA fell 1% to 24550.0 points, futures for the S & P 500 fell by 1.1% to 2665.0 points. Investors once again buy the dollar on unwillingness to risk after a sharp drop in shares in recent days. At the beginning of the European session, the dollar strengthened against euro-currencies, including against the pound. However, with large-scale purchases of the dollar is worthwhile to wait.
Apparently, few investors pointed out yesterday's publication of data pointing to a "significant deterioration" in the US trade balance. Data showed that in December, the foreign trade deficit amounted to 53.1 billion dollars (against the forecast of -52.0 billion and
-50.4 billion dollars in November), reaching the highest level in nine years. This is a strong structural negative factor for the US dollar in the long term.
Earlier, US President Donald Trump was extremely negative about the huge US foreign trade deficit, explaining this, in particular, by an expensive dollar. And he's right. An expensive national currency makes goods produced in a given country less competitive on the external market.
Back at the end of last month, the White House decided to impose restrictions on the importation of certain imported goods in the US produced in Asian countries. And a statement by US Treasury Secretary Stephen Mnuchin, who said that "the weakening of the dollar is favorable for trade", caused an even weaker dollar. If the upward trend in the deficit persists, then this may heighten investor fears of trade protectionism, which the administration of President Donald Trump promises to implement. And this is a negative factor for the dollar.
Meanwhile, the pound is down on the eve of tomorrow's meeting of the Bank of England. It is expected that the Bank of England will maintain the current soft monetary policy, given the slowdown in the most important sectors of the British economy, but may signal a stronger tendency of the Bank of England to tighten monetary and credit policy, including because of sharply increased inflation.
It is characteristic that today the National Institute for Economic and Social Research (NIESR) has raised the forecast for GDP growth in the UK in 2018 to 1.9% against the November forecast of 1.7%. NIESR also expects that the Bank of England will raise the key interest rate by 25 basis points in May and will continue to raise it every six months until the rate reaches 2%. It is expected that the annual inflation of consumer prices, which in December was 3%, will fall to 2% over the next eight quarters.
On Tuesday, the House of Representatives of the US Congress approved a bill that will extend government funding until March 23. Uncertainty about the approval of the lower house of the US Congress until Friday of government funding can put pressure on the dollar.
Thus, the fall of the GBP / USD against the background of the current recovery of the US dollar creates favorable conditions for buying the British pound against the dollar, already from current levels, below the level of 1.4000.

Nikkey225: The Bank of Japan will continue a large-scale economic softening program
08/02/2018
Current dynamics

As the Customs Department of Japan announced today, Japan's foreign trade surplus rose by 16.2 billion yen in December to 583.9 billion yen in annual terms (the previous value was 181.0 billion yen and the forecast was expected to increase to 567.7 billion yen). The economy of Japan is highly dependent on exports, and as a result, the growth of trade surplus indicates the growth of the country's economy. The growth in demand for Japanese exports leads to a positive growth in the trade balance, replenishment of the state budget and is a positive factor for JPY and for the Japanese stock market, although, as a rule, the yen and the stock market of Japan are moving in opposite directions.
Even today, despite the weakening of the yen, the main Japanese stock index Nikkey225 rose during the Asian session. Nevertheless, although the Japanese Nikkei has grown today, the index can still record the worst weekly dynamics in two years. Following the results of bidding in Asia, the Nikkei225 climbed 1.1% to 21890.00 points on the background of the growth of most export sectors. However, investors so far prefer to refrain from buying shares of leading export companies because of fears about volatility in the US.
"We must not allow ourselves to be influenced by the decline in the stock markets that we have just witnessed", Jens Weidman, president of the Bundesbank, said in a statement on Thursday that "the US stock indices grew for a long time without noticeable correction".
Head of the Bank of Japan Haruhiko Kuroda hastened to calm investors today, saying that the Japanese central bank will continue a large-scale mitigation program, as inflation is still far from the target level of 2%. "It's too early to discuss the timing and methods of getting out of soft politics. We will continue to buy ETF, REIT at the current pace", Kuroda added. This, in practice, is already traditional in recent months, the statement of the head of the Bank of Japan on "readiness for the most decisive measures to support the Japanese economy". In December, Kuroda also said that "the leadership of the Bank of Japan will further support the cycle of revenue growth, supporting a moderate increase in wages and prices".
The board member of the Bank of Japan Hitoshi Suzuki supported Kuroda today, noting that "the conditions necessary to further accelerate the rate of price growth" are created, thanks to a strong labor market, as well as government efforts to raise wages and increase productivity.
Meanwhile, sales in the market of long-term state bonds continued, and the yield of 10-year Japanese bonds rose by 1 point to 0.08%. The yield of 10-year US bonds is also today near the maximum of 2.825%, reached at the beginning of this week (2.858%), the maximum level for the last four years. Investors remain cautious after the strongest fluctuations in recent days in international financial markets. The CBOE volatility index is at the beginning of today's European session near the mark of 27.75, after it jumped on Tuesday to a value of 50.00, which is several times higher than the usual range near the marks of 10.00 and 19.00.

AUD/USD: there are no arguments in favor of raising RBA interest rates
09/02/2018
Current dynamics

Unlike the Fed, other major global central banks are in no hurry to tighten their monetary policies. After earlier this week the RB of Australia and the RB of New Zealand decided not to change their interest rates, on Thursday another central bank, the Bank of England, decided to leave the interest rate at the current level of 0.5%, which coincided with the expectations of market participants. The rhetoric of the accompanying statements and comments of representatives of these banks was also mild.
In a tone to these statements on Thursday, the leaders of the Bank of Japan also spoke. Thus, the head of the Bank of Japan Haruhiko Kuroda said that the Japanese central bank will continue the large-scale mitigation program, since inflation is still far from the target level of 2%. "It's too early to discuss the timing and methods of getting out of soft politics. We will continue to buy ETF, REIT at the current pace", Kuroda added. Board Member of the Bank of Japan Hitoshi Suzuki supported Kuroda, noting that "the conditions necessary to further accelerate the rate of price growth" are created, thanks to a strong labor market, as well as the government's efforts to increase wages and increase productivity.
During today's Asian session, the RBA published comments on its decision to keep the interest rate at the current level. The key rate of the RBA remains at a record low for the RBA of 1.5% since mid-2016, and economists believe that the central bank will not change it after 2019.
The Reserve Bank of Australia predicts the retention of slow inflation and the inability to achieve full employment over the next few years. The RBA expects that core inflation will accelerate gradually and reach the lower boundary of the target range of 2% -3% by mid-2019. And the pace of core inflation is critical for the RBA monetary policy. The main source of uncertainty for the RBA remains the slow growth of wages. Acceleration of wage growth is a prerequisite for achieving the target inflation range of 2% -3%. The RBA gave a forecast for unemployment - 5.25% by the end of 2018. Currently, the unemployment rate is 5.5%. Thus, unemployment will remain above 5%, which, according to the RBA, does not correspond to full employment and significantly reduces the need for monetary tightening, despite the fact that economic growth in the country will accelerate and by mid-2019 will be 3.5% per annum.
Thus, the RBA's forecasts reflect the comments of the managing director Philip Lowe, who on Thursday said there was no argument in favor of raising interest rates in the short term.
At the same time, the Fed, it seems, does not intend to back away from its plans to tighten monetary policy. So, the president of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City and the member of the FOMC with the right to vote, Esther George, said on Thursday that the Committee on Open Market Operations now intends to raise rates three times this year and three times in 2019. According to her, "this is a logical basic scenario in case the prospects do not change significantly".
Despite the fact that many economists are skeptical about the current strengthening of the US dollar, considering that its growth will be short-term and provide opportunities for its sale at higher levels, a more accurate long-term trading strategy for the AUD / USD will be a short position.
Against the background of a different focus of monetary policy in the US and Australia, we can expect further decline in the AUD/USD.

S&P500: Investors are trying to understand the movements on the market
12/02/2018
Current dynamics

The main US stock indexes today continued their recovery. By the beginning of today's European session, the US stock indexes about half recovered losses suffered last week, which became the worst in the past few years. The recovery began on Friday evening.
Risks of faster monetary tightening by the Fed on the background of expectations of the intensification of inflation provoked fluctuations in the stock markets in the last two weeks.
If inflation really increases, the Fed will be forced to raise interest rates faster in order to keep the situation under control and avoid hyperinflation. And this will lead to an increase in the yield of government bonds, which may affect the growth of the market of more risky assets.
After a brief consolidation of the indices at current levels, bears can undertake a new assault. The yield of 10-year US bonds is growing again, updating the absolute highs, and is at the beginning of today's European session near the 2.900% mark, the maximum level for the last four years. The yield of government bonds is growing, which makes it easier for the Fed to raise interest rates, which is a negative factor for the stock market.
The CBOE volatility index, the so-called "Wall Street fear index," rose again on Friday to record values after the 2008 crisis, to the level of 41.00. Last Tuesday, this index jumped to the value of 50.00, which is much higher than the usual range, formed in recent months, between the marks of 9.00 and 19.00.
Investors try to understand the sharp and deep movements taking place on the market in order to evaluate them either as a technical correction after prolonged growth, or as a result of a deeper reassessment of the financial situation.
In the beginning of the week, investors will monitor the data on the state of the US budget (will be published on Monday 19:00 GMT), as well as on retail sales and consumer prices for January (on Wednesday 13:30 GMT), which could affect the dynamics of the US stock market.
Also, as usual, on Thursday (13:30 GMT) weekly data from the US labor market will be published, namely, the number of primary (forecast - 237,000 against 221,000) and secondary applications for unemployment. The result higher than expected will indicate a weakening of the labor market, which will negatively affect the US dollar in the short term.

DJIA: investors remain cautious
13/02/2018
Current dynamics

On Monday, all three major US stock indexes rose for the second consecutive session, returning some of the losses incurred during the two previous weeks. The Dow Jones Industrial Average grew by 1.7% to 24601.00 points, the S&P500 - by 1.4% to 2,666.00 points, the Nasdaq Composite rose 1.6% to 6981.00 points.
Earlier in the US, and after and in all world stock markets, there was a sharp collapse in the indices. So, S&P500 lost over 5% last week due to signs of strengthening inflation and higher yields on government bonds, and the volatility index CBOE, or VIX, rose by almost 70% in the whole week, jumping to a mark of 50.00, a record high after the crisis of 2008.
The risks of a more rapid monetary policy tightening on the part of the Fed on the background of expectations of increased inflation provoked fluctuations in the stock markets over the past two weeks. Investors were also alarmed by the growth in the yield of US government bonds. Thus, the yield on 10-year US bonds on Monday reached new absolute highs near the 2.900% mark, the maximum values for the last four years. The increase in bond yields in early 2018 was one of the reasons for the decline in world stock markets. Profitability can grow even more on the background of the normalization of monetary policy and the further strengthening of the world economy. The growth of yield of government bonds facilitates the task of the Federal Reserve to raise interest rates. The stock market would quietly transfer one or two rate hikes. Last year, the former head of the Federal Reserve, Janet Yellen, stated that an increase in the interest rate alone is not enough to turn the bull stock market, but that would be another confirmation of the strength of the US economy.
Now buyers of risky assets of the stock market are confused, as a faster rate increase could slow or stop further growth of stock indices. Investors are still cautious after the sharp sales observed last week, and world stock markets are falling again on Tuesday.
Nevertheless, US stock indices are above critical support levels. Despite the fluctuations, last week created opportunities for profitable purchases, according to optimistic investors. The principle of "buy on the rumor, sell on facts", it seems, can work and this time. At least, it has already worked in part - "sell on facts".

S&P500: on the eve of the publication of inflation data
14/02/2018
Current dynamics

While investors are waiting for the publication at 13:30 (GMT) of important macro data from the US, US stock indexes continue to recover after a record fall in the previous two weeks. On the eve of the leading US indices for the third time in a row completed the trading in the market in positive territory.
Among the data published at 13:30 the most important inflation indicators will be. So, it is expected that the basic inflation increased in January by 1.7% (in annual terms). If the forecast is justified, the stock indexes will continue to recover, but if inflation is higher, then tension will return to the markets.
Probably, the best scenario for buyers of the assets of the stock market today will be weak inflation data and strong - on retail sales in the US.
Moreover, according to many economists, even if the inflation data in the US prove to be strong, this will not change the negative attitude towards the dollar. Against this background, the recovery of the US stock market is likely to continue after today's publication of macro data. Against the backdrop of low inflationary pressures in 2017, US stock indexes reached new record highs.
If inflation significantly exceeds forecasts, the Fed may need to increase interest rates four times in 2018. In this case, the stock markets have a chance to confirm the worst forecasts and resume the decline.
Meanwhile, the yield on 10-year US bonds is growing again and is currently at the level of 2.842%, slightly below the 2.900% mark reached two days ago, the highest level in the last four years. With the increase in the yield of government bonds, the Fed is easier to raise interest rates.
The most cautious traders today, perhaps, prefer to go into the cache. A surge in volatility in the financial markets is expected during the publication (13:30 GMT) of the data.

Brent: oil prices have corrected after a many-day fall
15/02/2018
Current dynamics

Despite the fact that oil and oil products stocks in the US raised again last week, oil prices on Wednesday rose after a many-day drop from the level of $ 70.00 per barrel of Brent crude oil. At the beginning of the month, the oil market was under pressure amid a decline in world stock indices and an increase in oil production in the US.
As reported on Wednesday in the US Department of Energy, oil reserves in the US last week increased by 1.8 million barrels (the forecast was + 2.6 million barrels). The American Petroleum Institute (API) on Tuesday reported an increase in reserves of 3.9 million barrels. Brent crude at ICE went up $ 1.64 on Wednesday, or 2.6%, to $ 64.36 a barrel.
Growth in oil prices on Wednesday also was contributed by the media reports that Saudi Arabia confirmed its commitment to the plan to limit the supply. "We believe that it is better for us to take redundant steps (to reduce supply) and ensure the restoration of the balance of the market", Saudi Energy Minister Khaled Al-Falih said at a press conference in Riyadh. In November, OPEC extended the deal to limit the offer until the end of 2018, and the cartel agreed to reevaluate the transaction in the middle of the year.
The renewed weakening of the dollar and growth in stock exchanges also supports oil prices in the current situation. On Wednesday, the dollar showed a large decline after it published disappointing data on retail sales in the US in January. Despite the fact that inflation accelerated in January, retail sales in January fell by 0.3%, which was the strongest drop in almost a year (the forecast assumed growth of retail sales in January by 0.2%).
After the publication of disappointing data on retail sales, economists lowered forecasts for US GDP growth in the first quarter of 2018. Based on the data presented this week, it can be concluded that the budget deficit and the deficit of US foreign trade are growing, and the risks of slowing GDP growth are also increasing. This could be an important factor that increases the Fed's predilection for maintaining a soft monetary policy.
Nevertheless, on Friday, the oil market may again be under pressure if the data on the number of operating drilling rigs in the United States indicate the next increase in the number of installations, and, consequently, the growth of oil production. The weekly report from the American oil service company Baker Hughes on the number of active oil drilling rigs in the US will be presented at 18:00 (GMT). At the moment, their number is 791 units. The positive dynamics of both the growth in the number of active drilling rigs in the United States and the volume of oil production prevails, which is a strong deterrent for the further growth of oil prices.

AUD/USD: The strength of the Australian dollar reflects the weakness of the US dollar
16/02/2018
Current dynamics

During his speech today before the parliament, the Reserve Bank of Australia's Governor Philip Lowey said that he "would prefer a lower exchange rate". In his opinion, "there is no reason to raise rates in the short term". Lowey noted that "inflation remains low", although "business sentiment is improving".
Approximately the same statements Lowey did before. Therefore, his today's speech did not bring surprises.
The Australian dollar reacted with restraint to Lowey's speech. Nevertheless, the Australian dollar is rising against the US dollar, justifying Lowey's view that "the strength of the Australian dollar reflects the weakness of the US dollar".
And, indeed, the US dollar remains under pressure, continuing to decline against its major counterparts. The dynamics of the dollar is not affected even by the macro statistics coming from the US, indicating an increase in inflation. So, on Thursday there were one more data, indicating the growth of inflationary pressure.
The producer price index (PPI), reflecting changes in prices for goods and services of American companies, in January rose by 0.4%, which is the best result since April 2017.
The consumer price index (CPI) released on Wednesday also surpassed expectations. The growth of consumer inflation in January was 2.1% (in annual terms). The CPI base index increased by 1.8% compared to the same period in 2017. According to economists, inflation will be above the target level of 2% this year already.
The growth of inflation against the backdrop of a strong labor market and a stable state of the US economy gives the Fed a reason to tighten monetary policy more rapidly. At the December meeting, the leaders of the Federal Reserve planned 3 rate increases in 2018. Now many investors believe that the Fed can implement a 4-time rate increase this year. So, according to the CME Group, investors estimate a 21% chance of 4 rate increases this year. Earlier this week, such a probability was estimated at 17%.
Nevertheless, the US dollar continues to scale down. The dollar index DXY, reflecting its value against the basket of 6 other currencies, fell on Friday to 88.18, the lowest level since December 2014, and at the beginning of the European session is near the mark of 88.35.
Of the news for today, it is worth paying attention to the publication at 13:30 (GMT) of data on the housing market in the US for January, which may increase volatility in the US dollar. However, this statistic will not have a significant impact on the dynamics of the US dollar.
The US dollar remains under pressure due to profound fundamental changes in the global financial market. Investors seem to opt for more interesting and growing financial markets outside of the US, which forces them to buy assets and the national currency of countries with a fast-growing economy, in particular the Eurozone and Japan.

XAU/USD: gold prospects are positive
19/02/2018
Current dynamics

After on Friday the price of gold updated the monthly maximum, having risen to the mark of 1361.00 dollars per troy ounce, then the price went to the corrective phase. The XAU / USD declined, retreating to the mark near the support level of 1348.00 (the opening price of the month). Last month, the price of gold reached the next local multi-month high near the mark of 1365.00 dollars per ounce. The last time near this mark the price was in July 2016.
Nevertheless, with regard to the further dynamics of the price of gold, there are two opposing opinions of experts. The first view is that, amid rising inflation, the Fed will begin to raise interest rates at a faster rate, which will increase the interest to the dollar purchases. Gold does not bring investment income and is used, mainly, as a hedging instrument for risks during the period of economic or political instability in the world. In periods of increasing interest rates, gold, as a rule, becomes cheaper, giving way to assets that generate revenue, such as government bonds. Due to the growth of inflation expectations, the yield of 10-year US Treasury bonds returned to almost 3%.
In this sense, the publication on Wednesday (19:00 GMT) of the minutes from the January meeting of the Fed, the latter under the leadership of Janet Yellen, will be of interest to investors this week. The minutes of the meeting may give market participants an idea that the Fed's management is thinking about the possible economic consequences of reforming the tax system and about accelerating inflation in the US.
The contrary opinion of experts is that, despite the expected increase in interest rates, gold still has good chances for growth as a means of protecting against the growth of consumer inflation.
Thus, the probability of further growth in gold prices outweighs the likelihood of their decline. Taking into account the multi-month cycles, the long-term targets for the growth of the gold price will be the levels of 1390.00, 1425.00 dollars per troy ounce.
In view of the fact that the US has a day off ("President's Day"), and American banks and exchanges are closed, the sluggish dynamics of trading on financial markets is expected until the end of the trading day.

NZD/USD: Fundamental factors are on the side of US dollar sellers
20/02/2018
Current dynamics

The US dollar continues to strengthen in the foreign exchange market after it reached new lows last week. The dollar index DXY, reflecting its value against the basket of 6 other currencies, is growing for the third consecutive day. At the beginning of the European session, the futures on the DXY index traded with an increase near the mark of 89.50.
The growth of the dollar is also promoted by the growth of the yield of US Treasury bonds, which is close to the highs observed last week. The yield on 10-year Treasury bonds rose to 2.92% on the eve of the first trading day in the US this week. On Monday, US markets were closed due to the day off (President's Day).
Meanwhile, the attitude to the dollar on the part of investors remains negative. Economists and financial companies lowered forecasts for US GDP growth in the first quarter of 2018. Significant growth of the country's budget deficit, coupled with the growth of the foreign trade deficit to $ 566 billion, the highest level since 2008, leads to a further decrease in investors' interest in the dollar.
The new US tax law, which provides for a significant reduction in taxes and an increase in budget spending, will only contribute to the growth of the federal budget deficit.
Despite the positive macro statistics coming from the US, deep fundamental factors are on the side of dollar sellers.
Meanwhile, the dollar receives short-term support on the eve of the publication on Wednesday (19:00 GMT) of the minutes from the January meeting of the Federal Reserve System.
Probably, investors will wait for new signals from the leadership of the Fed regarding further interest rate increases in the US. As you know, the Fed planned 3 rate increases in 2018 and 2 more increases in 2019.
From the news for today, we are waiting for the publication of the results of the next dairy auction (in the period after 14:00 GMT). The main part of the New Zealand economy is the timber and agricultural complex, and a significant part of the New Zealand export is dairy products, primarily milk powder. Two weeks ago, the price index for dairy products, prepared by Global Dairy Trade, came out with a value of +5.9% (against previous values of +4.9%, +2.2% and +0.4%). If the prices for dairy products rise again, the New Zealand dollar will strengthen, including in the pair NZD / USD. The decline in world prices for dairy products will hurt the quotations of the New Zealand dollar.
Nevertheless, this time the reaction of market participants to this publication will likely be restrained due to the continued celebration of the New Year in China, which is New Zealand's largest partner and buyer of dairy products from this country.

GBP/USD: before the release of the Fed's minutes
21/02/2018
Current dynamics

In anticipation of the publication (at 19:00 GMT) of the minutes from the Fed meeting held on January 30-31, the dollar remains stable and trades with a slight increase. In December, the Fed for the third time in 2017 increased the rate, bringing it to the current level of 1.5%. Fed leaders voted unanimously for this rate hike and showed a tendency to further tighten monetary policy in the next two years. During the January meeting, the leaders of the Fed confirmed their intention to raise the interest rate three times in 2018 and twice in 2019.
Market participants expect that the first rate increase may occur already during the March meeting of the Fed (March 20 - 21). Moreover, many investors (21%, according to the latest data from the CME Group) believe that the Fed will raise the rate four times in 2018 amid a steady growth in the US economy, the labor market and inflation. And now, investors are hoping to catch new signals from the Fed regarding further plans in the matter of monetary policy.
As usual, the national currency grows when the interest rate rises. So far, the growth of the dollar is not observed, since many investors remain negative towards him because of deep negative fundamental factors. Many economists believe that the dollar is only at the beginning of the multi-year cycle of the next decline. But everything can change if the Fed will systematically tighten monetary policy, and the positive macro data will come from the USA.
There is still no clear idea of how the macroeconomic situation in the US will change as the new tax and economic policies of the White House are implemented.
As for the pound, the positive macro statistics received during the current European session from the UK did not significantly affect its dynamics. Despite the fact that the unemployment rate unexpectedly increased in the fourth quarter of 2017 (by 0.1% to 4.4%), the overall employment rate has increased, and the number of unemployed has declined most strongly since the end of 2015. Wages also increased. Moreover, the growth of salaries in the UK has been the strongest since the end of 2016.
In January, inflation remained at 3.0%, which is 1 percentage point higher than the target level of the Bank of England. In November, the Bank of England raised its key interest rate for the first time in a decade to contain inflation. Recently, central bank officials signaled that the rate may need to be raised earlier than originally expected. This is a strong factor in favor of strengthening the pound. At the same time, the pound will remain vulnerable against the euro and the dollar against the backdrop of Brexit.
Among other important news for today regarding the pair GBP / USD, it is worth highlighting
the speech (at 14:15 GMT) of the Bank of England Chairman Mark Carney during the hearing in the British Parliament of the Bank of England's report on inflation.
And at 14:45 there will be a block of important macro statistics from the United States. Among the published data - PMI in the leading sectors of the US economy (in the services sector and in the manufacturing sector) for February (preliminary release). The growth of indicators is expected, which will give an additional bullish impulse to the dollar.
With respect to the pair GBP / USD, we can say that, in general, positive dynamics remains. However, GBP / USD is in the zone of strong resistance levels 1.4185 (EMA50 on the monthly chart), 1.4050 (EMA200 on the weekly chart), from which it is possible, if not a turn, then a deep enough rebound.
