    BTC/USD Price Exceeds $60,000 Per Coin
    [​IMG]

    Several factors contributed to this:

    → Effect associated with the approval of Bitcoin ETF. The media writes that investments in these financial instruments amount to about 9k bitcoins per day, and miners produce only 900 bitcoins per day. The total investment in the Bitcoin ETF after approval on January 11 is approaching USD 50 billion. By comparison, just over USD 90 billion is invested in the 19 largest gold ETFs.

    → Expectations that Ethereum ETFs will be approved in the future, simplifying access to investments in the second largest cryptocurrency by capitalization.

    → Expectations for the Fed to cut interest rates. Cheaper credit means greater appetite for investment in higher-risk assets.

    → Expectations for the halving (scheduled for April), after which a bull market usually begins.

    In mid-February, we wrote that the price of Bitcoin did not show bullish progress after exceeding the psychological level of USD 50k per Bitcoin. Technical analysis of the Bitcoin chart shows that this was due to resistance (shown by the arrow) from the median line of the green ascending channel, within which the market has been developing since the fall of 2023. Yesterday's rise, which followed the breakdown of the psychological level of 60k US dollars per bitcoin, marked the upper limit of this channel just above 64k US dollars per bitcoin and made it possible to update its contours.

    The American Currency Resumes Its Growth
    [​IMG]

    The American currency, despite a rather multidirectional fundamental data, resumes growth at the end of February. In the main currency pairs, one can observe both rebounds from key levels and continuation of the main trends. Thus, the USD/CAD pair managed to strengthen above 1.3500, the GBP/USD pair lost about 100 pp after rebounding from 1.2700, and EUR/USD buyers failed to strengthen above 1.0900.
    USD/CAD

    Fluctuations in the oil market contributed to the strengthening of the USD/CAD pair. At the beginning of the week, sellers of the pair tried to break the support at 1.3400, but, as we see, were unsuccessful. Yesterday, the price on the USD/CAD chart not only strengthened above 1.3500, but also updated the current year’s maximum at 1.3580. If the pair's buyers do not lose their upward momentum, the price may strengthen to 1.3770-1.3700. The upward scenario may be cancelled by consolidation below the level of 1.3400.

    Today, we can expect increased volatility in the pair. At 16:30 GMT+3, we are waiting for data on Canadian GDP for the fourth quarter of last year. At the same time, the basic price index of personal consumption expenditures in the US for January and indicators on applications for unemployment benefits for the current week will be published.

    USD/JPY Technical Analysis: Yen Strengthens after Comments from Japanese Officials
    [​IMG]

    This week has raised alarm bells for USD/JPY market participants who are trading the bullish momentum that has been going on since early 2024 (shown in the blue curved lines on the USD/JPY chart):

    → Vice Finance Minister Masato Kanda warned against “excessive volatility” in currency markets, hinting that the yen had weakened too much.
    → Bank of Japan board member Hajime Takata said that, in his opinion, there are prospects for achieving the inflation target of 2%, which opens the way to abandoning negative rates. Note that today there was news on inflation in Japan, which showed that it is slowing down. Thus, BOJ Core CPI in annual terms was 2.6%, a month ago = 2.6%, 2 months ago = 2.7%, 3 months ago = 3.0%.

    Market Analysis: GBP/USD Struggles While USD/CAD Aims Higher
    [​IMG]

    GBP/USD is attempting a recovery wave from 1.2600. USD/CAD is rising and might aim for a move above the 1.3580 resistance zone.

    Important Takeaways for GBP/USD and USD/CAD Analysis Today

    • The British Pound started a fresh decline from the 1.2700 resistance zone.
    • There is a key bearish trend line forming with resistance near 1.2665 on the hourly chart of GBP/USD at FXOpen.
    • USD/CAD is showing positive signs above the 1.3545 support zone.
    • There is a contracting triangle forming with resistance near 1.3580 on the hourly chart at FXOpen.

    GBP/USD Technical Analysis
    [​IMG]

    On the hourly chart of GBP/USD at FXOpen, the pair started a fresh decline from the 1.2700 zone. The British Pound traded below the 1.2650 support to move into further a bearish zone against the US Dollar, as mentioned in the previous analysis.

    The pair even traded below 1.2620 and the 50-hour simple moving average. Finally, the bulls appeared near the 1.2600 level. A low was formed near 1.2612 and the pair is now attempting a short-term recovery wave.

    There was a fresh upside above the 1.2620 level. The pair climbed above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the 1.2681 swing high to the 1.2612 low.

    Immediate resistance on the upside is near the 50% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the 1.2681 swing high to the 1.2612 low at 1.2650 and the 50-hour simple moving average. The first major resistance on the GBP/USD chart is near the 1.2665 level.

    There is also a key bearish trend line forming with resistance near 1.2665. A close above the 1.2665 resistance might spark a decent recovery wave. The next major resistance is near the 1.2700 level. Any more gains could lead the pair toward the 1.2750 resistance in the near term.

    Initial support sits near 1.2620. The next major support sits at 1.2610, below which there is a risk of another sharp decline. In the stated case, the pair could drop toward 1.2540.

    Nasdaq-100 Price Hits All-time High after 4 Straight Months of Gains
    [​IMG]

    The Nasdaq-100 index is holding above 18,000 today following yesterday's bullish momentum, fueled by inflation news.

    The PCE consumer spending index amounted to 0.4% on a monthly basis, which was in line with analysts' expectations. A year ago, we recall, it was 0.6%. Thus, statistics indicate a weakening of inflation which means that the likelihood of the Fed cutting interest rates increases — the anticipation of this event increases optimism in the stock market.

    Another driver is the strong price action of NVDA stock. The company's capitalization is close to USD 2 trillion, as Nvidia is perhaps the main beneficiary of the AI boom — NVDA's price rose approximately 28% in February.

    Price of Gold Briefly Exceeded $2,050 per Ounce
    [​IMG]

    In addition to new records in the stock markets, the reaction to yesterday's news about inflation in the US was also a decrease in government bond yields and a rapid rise in the price of gold — the cost of XAU/USD jumped by 0.9% in just one hour, while the day's high exceeded USD 2,050 per ounce .

    However, on Friday morning the price of XAU/USD dropped below USD 2,040 – did market participants misjudge the impact of US inflation on the price of gold?

    XAU/USD chart shows that:
    → the price of gold is in a downward trend (shown in red);
    → yesterday, the price not only touched the psychological level of USD 2,050, but also reached the upper limit of the downward red channel. That is, both lines acted as a block of resistance, which appears to be a serious obstacle to the upward impulse (shown by blue lines).

    WTI Oil Price Reaches 4-month High against the Backdrop of OPEC+ Decision
    [​IMG]

    On Friday, the price of a barrel of WTI crude oil exceeded USD 80 per barrel due to the decision to continue the policy of reducing oil production by OPEC+ countries.

    Saudi Arabia said on Sunday it would extend oil production cuts until June to “maintain stability and balance in oil markets,” an official statement said. Kuwait and the United Arab Emirates also said they would also continue cuts.

    NYT writes that the decision was expected. At the same time, the price of WTI oil exceeded USD 80 per barrel on Friday for the first time since the beginning of November 2023.

    The price chart for WTI oil shows that the market has been in an upward trend since mid-December - the price has formed an upward channel (shown in blue). In addition to the OPEC+ policy, the strength of demand is also supported by:
    → uncertainty in the military conflict between Hamas and Israel;
    → facts of attacks on oil tankers in the Red Sea.

    5 Stocks To Consider in March 2024
    [​IMG]

    Here we are, beginning the last month of the first quarter of 2024, which has passed by in somewhat of a flash.

    Perhaps the apparent speed at which the spring is approaching can be attributed to what appears to be a single issue among analysts and market participants since the beginning of the year, that being the anticipation of announcements by central banks in Western countries with regard to monetary policy. Put simply, is the rate of interest going down?

    Rather interestingly, it did not. The United States led the charge of announcements relating to monetary policy this year, and contrary to popular belief, the interest rates have not been reduced. The equities and commodities markets have had extra factors to consider, including logistical dire straits in the Red Sea, meaning products cannot reach their destination as freely as last year, and OPEC+ countries looking at production cut extensions in front of a backdrop of war in the Eastern Mediterranean region.

    Swiss Franc Weakens after Inflation News
    [​IMG]

    Inflation in the country fell in February to its lowest level in nearly two-and-a-half years, data from Switzerland's Federal Statistical Office showed on Monday. Although consumer prices rose 1.2% compared to a year earlier, there is reason to believe that inflation is slowing down compared to the 1.3% recorded a month earlier.

    Reuters writes that the Swiss National Bank has kept inflation rates within the target range since May 2023, despite rising rents, sales taxes and energy prices. And the latest news makes it more likely that the SNB will cut rates at its next meeting, scheduled for March 21.

    Thus, market participants can expect a looser policy and an affordable franc — which is why the CHF has weakened against a number of currencies. For example, the EUR/CHF rate has reached its highest level since November 2023.
