    EURGBP continues to be suppressed during February. Will it rise again?
    [​IMG]

    The first few weeks of 2024 have been laden with discussion, analysis and speculation regarding the forthcoming position of the US economy, largely due to the United States authorities having been the first to speak publicly about any monetary policy changes for the year ahead, as well as a considerable number of perspectives having been aired in the public domain regarding the US Federal Reserve Bank being the first central bank responsible for major currency to lower interest rates - something which actually did not happen.

    While the expected announcement of planned reductions in interest rates did not materialise, there has been a lot of comparison between the US economy, and in particular, the US Dollar and Europe's majors, the British Pound and the Euro.

    What about the monetary situation and economic outlook on the European side of the Atlantic? Both the European Central Bank and the Bank of England have followed similar, highly conservative monetary policies to that of the Federal Reserve over the past two years, and therefore, it would have been likely that perhaps equal expectations of reductions of interest would ensue if the Federal Reserve had actually proceeded down the route that many analysts expected.

    Now, with the US rates remaining the same, could it be that the European and British central bankers will follow the same path? Judging by the result of the European Central Bank policy meeting, which took place on January 25, at which it was decided that rates would remain unchanged, this appears to be the case so far.

    Looking at the performance of the EURGBP pair makes for interesting research, given that this chart pattern shows the sentiment within the European Union member states and Britain, all regions where major currencies are the sovereign tender, but without any comparison to the United States.

    AUD/USD Price Reaction to Labour Market News Provides Important Information for Analysis
    [​IMG]

    Australia's unemployment rate rose to a two-year high of 4.1% in January, while employment was little changed although analysts had expected around 25,000 new jobs, data released this morning showed.

    It is believed that weak labour market data should prompt central bank officials to ease monetary policy, which is currently aimed at fighting inflation. According to Trading Economics, the Reserve Bank of Australia is expected to cut interest rates by about 40 basis points this year.

    The first reaction to the news was the weakening of the Australian dollar (counting on the easing of the Central Bank's policy), but by the opening of the European session, the price of AUD/USD had recovered a significant part of the decline, which provides important food for thought.

    Ethereum Price Exceeds $2,800
    [​IMG]

    The last time the ETH/USD price was at this level was in May 2022, which was the start of a massive drop of more than 65% in 1.5 months.

    However, now the ETH/USD market is dominated by bullish sentiment, for the following reasons:

    → deployment of the Dencun update on the Ethereum network this month, which will open up new opportunities for users and developers;
    → expectations that this year, following the approval of Bitcoin ETFs, applications for the launch of ETFs on Ethereum will be approved;
    → waiting for a traditional bull market after halving in the Bitcoin network.

    The US Currency Correcting after a Sharp Rise
    [​IMG]

    An unexpected rise in the US consumer price index contributed to the resumption of the upward trend in the US dollar. Thus, experts predicted a monthly growth of 0.2% and an annual increase of 2.9%, in reality the monthly figure increased by 0.3%, and on an annualized basis this is 3.1%. Such data could not but please greenback buyers. After all, a change in the vector of monetary policy given the current indicators and the existing situation on the labour market in the United States is hardly possible in the near future.

    USD/JPY

    The rise in inflation in the US contributed to the return of the USD/JPY pair above 150.00. The price on the USD/JPY chart set a new yearly high at 150.80, after which it entered a consolidation phase between 150.80 and 150.20. If the upper limit of the specified range is broken, the price may resume growth in the direction of last year’s highs near 152.00. A move below 150.00 may contribute to the start of a larger downward correction in the direction of 148.00-146.00.

    Today at 16:30 GMT+3, data on weekly applications for unemployment benefits in the United States will be released. Also at the same time, the core US retail sales index for January will be published, as well as the manufacturing activity index from the Philadelphia Fed for February.

    Gold Price Recovers from Year Lows
    [​IMG]

    On Wednesday, the gold price XAU/USD set a year low due to news about inflation in the US, which “does not want” to decline to target levels.

    As a result, market participants are revising their estimates regarding the price of gold with the prospect that the Fed's tight policy may last for a longer time, as well as taking into account yesterday's news:

    → Retail Core Sales in the US fell by 0.6%, although an increase of +0.2% was expected, a month ago = +0.4%.
    → the number of unemployment applications for the week remains relatively stable: actual = 212k, a week ago = 218k, a month ago = 202k.

    TSLA Share Price Rises Sharply amid News of Musk's Increased Stake in the Company
    [​IMG]

    According to media reports, Elon Musk has increased his stake in Tesla by more than one and a half times — previously, the billionaire owned approximately 13% of the shares, now he owns 20.5% of Tesla. And earlier it was reported that Musk wants to increase his stake in Tesla to at least 25%.

    At the same time, the TSLA share price rose sharply in yesterday's trading by more than 6%, while the S&P 500 stock market index increased by “only” +0.6%.

    The TSLA stock chart today shows that:
    → the price has overcome the psychological mark of USD 200 per share;
    → the price has overcome the resistance level of USD 195 per share;
    → a bullish reversal pattern inverted head-and-shoulders has formed on the chart.

    Is the UK really in a recession? Perhaps 2024 data will be different
    [​IMG]

    It's Monday morning, and a deluge of doom and gloom relating to a recession having begun in the United Kingdom is abound.

    Many mainstream news channels, along with analyses coming from a number of financial markets commentators, are outlining the potential contraction of the British economy should the central bank monetary policy remain hardline regarding interest rates.

    There is a school of thought which warns investors that if the Bank of England does not decide to reduce interest rates, the British economy would perhaps become less competitive, and language such as causing a worsening of an existing recession could take place.

    This is a very intriguing view, however, because the British Pound has been performing against other major currencies in a pattern that would suggest anything but a recession is even existent, let alone in full swing as is being touted by many reports.

    During the course of this year so far, the British Pound has been gaining value significantly against the Euro, with the EURGBP pair having hit 0.850 at the bottom of the market on February 14, according to FXOpen charts, a far cry from its 0.869 value on January 1.

    GBP/JPY: Price Corrects from 8.5 Year High
    [​IMG]

    According to CNN, the economies of the UK and Japan entered a technical recession last week as data showed a second consecutive quarterly decline in gross domestic product. And if in the UK the economic downturn can be associated with high inflation and the strict policies of the Bank of England, then in Japan the reason may be the population decline (which has been going on for 14 years in a row).

    At the same time, the GBP/JPY chart shows that last week the rate exceeded 190 yen per pound for the first time since August 2015.

    However:
    → the price is at the upper border of the ascending channel (shown in blue);
    → at the beginning of this week, the price of GBP/JPY is below the 190 yen level – and a false bullish breakout of the psychological level should be regarded as a bearish sign;
    → the MACD indicator indicates that demand forces are fading.
