    AUD/USD Technical Analysis
    [​IMG]
    On the hourly chart of AUD/USD at FXOpen, the pair formed a base above 0.6585. The Aussie Dollar started a decent increase above the 0.6630 resistance against the US Dollar, as mentioned in the previous analysis.

    The bulls pushed the pair above the 0.6655 resistance zone. There was a close above the 0.6685 resistance and the 50-hour simple moving average. Finally, the pair tested the 0.6715 zone. A high was formed at 0.6714 before the pair corrected gains.

    It tested the 0.6655 zone and is currently consolidating gains. There was a fresh increase above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the 0.6714 swing high to the 0.6654 low.

    On the upside, the AUD/USD chart indicates that the pair is now facing resistance near the 50% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the 0.6714 swing high to the 0.6654 low at 0.6685. The first major resistance might be 0.6715.

    An upside break above the 0.6715 resistance might send the pair further higher. The next major resistance is near the 0.6750 level. Any more gains could clear the path for a move toward the 0.6800 resistance zone.

    If not, the pair might correct lower. Immediate support is near a major bullish trend line at 0.6670. The next support could be 0.6655. If there is a downside break below the 0.6655 support, the pair could extend its decline toward the 0.6630 zone. Any more losses might signal a move toward 0.6585.

    The Share Price of Alibaba (BABA) Has Reached Its Yearly High
    [​IMG]

    On 14 May, Alibaba released its first-quarter performance report:
    → Earnings per share: actual = $1.404, expected = $1.421;
    → Gross income: actual = $30.716 billion, expected = $30.502 billion.

    The fact that earnings per share were slightly below expectations did not disappoint investors much, as on 16 May, Alibaba's share price (BABA) reached a yearly high, exceeding $86, forming a wide bullish candlestick with a close near the top (a sign of strong demand).

    Positive sentiments were also driven by:
    → Another Chinese company, JD.com, released a report that exceeded expectations;
    → US regulators published information that well-known investor Michael Burry invested in Alibaba shares. David Tepper, head of the hedge fund Appaloosa Management, also holds a bullish outlook;
    → According to a note published on X (Twitter) by Citron Research analysts, Alibaba's share price could rise to $100.

    The Price of Silver Has Reached Its Highest Level in Over Three Years
    [​IMG]

    As indicated by the XAG/USD chart today, the intraday price of silver reached $29.84 per ounce yesterday, while the previous yearly high on 12 April was $29.79. The last time this price was seen was in February 2021.

    It is worth noting that today the price of silver is behaving more bullishly than the price of gold, which is approximately 1.5% below its April high.

    The main factor contributing to the rise in the price of silver is likely the weakening of the US dollar, as traders expect the Federal Reserve to ease monetary policy.

    Can the price of silver continue to rise? Analysts are generally bullish. As CNBC reports:
    → Saxo Bank strategists recently stated in an analytical review that the price of silver could rise to $30, while gold could soon test the $2,400 level.
    → Analysts at ROTH Capital Partners forecast that the prices of gold and silver will rise even higher in the coming months. According to JC O'Hara, Chief Market Technician, if the price breaks the $30 level, "there will be few resistance levels until the $35/$37 range."

    Let’s provide more data for a technical analysis of the silver market.

    Coinbase (COIN) Stock Price Holds at Key Support Level
    [​IMG]

    On Thursday, stock market traders were concerned about the sharp drop in Coinbase shares, listed on the Nasdaq, which fell by 9%. This was triggered by rumours that the Chicago-based CME Group is planning to launch cryptocurrency trading, posing a challenge to Coinbase, currently the leading cryptocurrency exchange in the US.

    It is worth noting that CME already trades Bitcoin futures (since December 2017) and Ethereum futures (since February 2021). Is it possible for CME to launch spot cryptocurrency trading?

    On one hand, interest in the cryptocurrency market has surged in 2024, with Bitcoin’s price up approximately 58% year-to-date, and around 146% over the past 12 months.

    On the other hand, CME Group, as the world’s largest operator of exchange-traded derivatives, is considered a fundamental part of the US financial system. The SEC is unlikely to be favourable towards initiating cryptocurrency trading there, given their reputation for high risk.

    Nevertheless, the sharp decline in Coinbase shares on Thursday did not continue into Friday.

    Commodity Currencies Retreat from Local Highs
    [​IMG]

    Despite the cooling labour market in the US and declining inflation, the American currency continues to move towards new highs. For instance, the USD/JPY currency pair might update the current month's high at 156.70, the NZD/USD sharply declines after retesting 0.6140, and buyers of the USD/CAD pair have confidently secured a position above 1.3600.

    USD/CAD

    The corrective pullback in the USD/CAD pair ended just below 1.3600. According to technical analysis, on May 16th, a bullish "piercing line" pattern formed on the daily timeframe for USD/CAD. The completion of this pattern could lead to a retest of the key range 1.3690-1.3660. If the price remains above these levels in the coming weeks, the pair’s rise could resume towards 1.3850-1.3820. A drop below 1.3600 could contribute to a more extensive downward correction towards 1.3530-1.3470. Important indicators that may affect USD/CAD pricing in the coming trading sessions:

    • Today at 15:30 (GMT +3:00) - Canada’s Core Consumer Price Index (CPI) for April
    • Tomorrow at 17:00 (GMT +3:00) - US Existing Home Sales

    Tech Stocks Back in Vogue as Nasdaq 100 Rallies to Record High
    [​IMG]

    The tech-heavy Nasdaq 100 index (US Tech 100 mini on FXOpen’s TickTrader platform) reached a new all-time high on Monday, closing the trading session at 18,684.2 according to FXOpen pricing, fueled by renewed investor enthusiasm for technology stocks.

    This remarkable feat underscores the resurgence of the tech sector, which has been buoyed by speculation surrounding two key factors: the highly anticipated earnings report from semiconductor giant NVIDIA and the possibility of interest rate cuts by the Federal Reserve.

    NVIDIA's Earnings Anticipation

    NVIDIA, a leading player in the rapidly growing artificial intelligence (AI) market, is set to release its earnings report on Wednesday. Investors are eagerly awaiting this announcement, with expectations running high for another quarter of impressive financial performance.

    The company's cutting-edge chips are in high demand for AI applications, positioning it as a frontrunner in this transformative technology.

    The anticipation surrounding NVIDIA's earnings has ignited a frenzy in the tech sector, driving up share prices and contributing to the US Tech 100 mini's record-breaking performance. Investors are betting on NVIDIA's continued dominance in the AI space, which could further propel the stock and the broader tech market.

    Gold Price Reaches Historic High
    [​IMG]

    According to confirmed information, Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi, considered a potential successor to the country's supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, died in a helicopter crash in a mountainous area near the border with Azerbaijan. The helicopter also carried Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian and other officials, all of whom perished.

    As news of the helicopter search in the inaccessible mountainous region spread, the price of gold rose significantly. Yahoo Finance reports that the gold rally was driven by uncertainty about the situation in Iran.

    The XAU/USD chart indicates that yesterday, at the peak of the day, the price of gold reached $2450, an all-time high. Can the rally continue?

    GBP/USD Rate Surges to Two-Month High After Inflation News
    [​IMG]

    Today, the Consumer Price Index (CPI) figures for the UK were published. According to ForexFactory:

    → Annual CPI: actual = 2.3%; expected = 2.1%; previous = 3.2%.

    → Annual Core CPI: actual = 3.9%; expected = 3.6%; previous = 4.2%.

    Thus, it can be asserted that:

    → The current inflation level is at its lowest since 2021.

    → It is close to the target levels of 2%.

    However, economists polled by Reuters had expected a sharper drop to 2.1%, based on falling energy prices.

    Additionally, inflation in the services sector (a key indicator monitored by the Bank of England due to the dominance of this sector in the UK economy) only slightly decreased to 5.9% from 6%.

    As a result, CNBC reports that market participants have reduced the likelihood of the Bank of England easing monetary policy:

    → The probability of a rate cut in June has decreased to 15% compared to 50% before the inflation news was published.

    → The probability of a rate cut in August was estimated at 40% compared to 70% before the publication.

    The currency market reacted with a surge in volatility – the GBP/USD rate jumped to a two-month high, reaching the 1.27555 level. However, as the market absorbed the data, the price began to gradually decline.
