    After Earnings Report, NVDA Stock Price Exceeds $1,000
    [​IMG]

    For the first time in history, Nvidia's stock price has reached a four-digit number, and its market capitalisation has surpassed $2.5 trillion, ranking third globally after Microsoft and Apple. This surge is due to a strong earnings report, driven by high demand for AI chips:

    → Earnings per share: actual = $6.12, expected = $5.60;
    → Gross revenue: actual = $26.04 billion, expected = $24.59 billion.

    Additionally, Nvidia announced a 10-for-1 stock split to make shares more accessible and attract new investors, which should support NVDA stock in the future.

    While yesterday's main trading session closed around $950 per share, the price rose by approximately 6% in after-hours trading. Thus, NVDA's stock price has increased by over 100% since the beginning of the year. Can the rally continue?

    On March 28, in the article "Stock Market Analysis: NVDA Losing Leadership?", we:
    → Noted signs of weakness relative to the S&P 500 index;
    → Constructed an ascending blue channel;
    → Suggested a potential pullback to the $800 level.

    EUR/USD Price Forms Bullish Reversal Amid Key News
    [​IMG]

    Last night, the FOMC meeting minutes were released. According to USNews, there were no major surprises. However, the confirmation of persistent inflation – along with hints that some officials discussed potential future rate hikes – displayed a "hawkish" stance. The dollar index initially rose following the minutes' release but returned to pre-release levels this morning, suggesting the initial reaction might have been incorrect.

    Subsequently, the Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI) data for key European economies was published. According to ForexFactory:
    → Flash Manufacturing PMI (France): actual = 46.7; expected = 45.8; previous = 45.3;
    → Flash Services PMI (France): actual = 49.4; expected = 51.8; previous = 51.3;
    → Flash Manufacturing PMI (Germany): actual = 45.4; expected = 43.4; previous = 42.5;
    → Flash Services PMI (Germany): actual = 53.9; expected = 53.5; previous = 53.2.

    Overall, the actual PMI figures, considered a leading indicator of economic health, exceeded expectations and gave the euro a bullish push.

    The combined effect of the euro's rise and the dollar's decline since midnight resulted in a four-hour EUR/USD chart candle with a long lower tail (indicated by an arrow), suggesting demand outweighs supply. A subsequent bullish candle could confirm this.

    The Canadian Dollar's Recent Performance

    Throughout 2019, the USD/CAD exchange rate remained relatively stable, fluctuating between 1.35 and 1.30. This period was marked by heightened trade tensions between the US and its key trading partners, primarily China, which had a ripple effect on the pair due to both the US and Canada's significant trade relationships.

    European Currencies Testing Key Levels: Contributing Factors
    [​IMG]

    In recent trading sessions, a significant amount of crucial macroeconomic data has been released from the US, Europe, and the UK:

    • Wednesday: Consumer Price Index (CPI) in the UK (the figure came in higher than experts' forecast at 2.3% versus 2.1%)
    • Wednesday: Publication of the minutes from the latest Federal Reserve meeting
    • Thursday: US Manufacturing PMI (the figure exceeded experts' forecast at 50.9 versus 50.0)

    This rich mix of data contributed to the USD/JPY pair testing 157.00, EUR/USD sellers attempting to break key support at 1.0800, and the GBP/USD pair halting its recent strengthening and returning to 1.2700.

    EUR/USD

    Technical analysis of the EUR/USD pair indicates the development of a bearish “dark cloud cover” pattern on the daily timeframe, formed on May 16. If the pair's sellers manage to break the support at 1.0800, the downward movement of the pair could extend towards 1.0730-1.0710. A resumption of the upward movement can be expected once the price moves above 1.0900. Today, several macroeconomic indicators are due for release, which could either reinforce the current trend or lead to the formation of reversal patterns:

    • Today at 09:00 (GMT+3:00) Germany's Q1 GDP
    • Today at 13:00 (GMT+3:00) Eurogroup Meeting

    S&P-500 Analysis: Good News is Bad News
    [​IMG]

    Yesterday, S&P Global reported its Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI) values for the US, which exceeded expectations. According to ForexFactory:

    → Manufacturing PMI: actual = 50.9; expected = 50.0; previous = 50.0.

    → Services PMI: actual = 54.8 (the highest value since May 2023); expected = 51.2; previous = 51.3.

    However, the high PMI values, indicating a healthy economy, led to a drop in the stock index. The S&P-500 index (US SPX 500 mini on FXOpen) fell by more than 1.5% following the publication.

    What explains this case of "good news is bad news"?

    The point is, amid high business activity, manufacturers reported rising prices for a range of resources, suggesting that goods inflation might strengthen in the coming months. Stock market participants might have interpreted this as a reason for the Federal Reserve to maintain high rates for a longer period – hence the sharp decline in the index.

    "Companies remain cautious with respect to the economic outlook amid uncertainty over the future path of inflation and interest rates, and continue to cite worries over geopolitical instabilities and the presidential election," said Chris Williamson, Chief Business Economist at S&P Global Market Intelligence, in an interview with Reuters.

    Gold Price Drops Over 3.6% in 2 Days
    [​IMG]

    The price of gold has fallen by more than 3.6% over 2 days, as indicated by today's XAU/USD chart. The day before yesterday, at the opening of the daily candle, the price of gold was $2421 per ounce, and yesterday at the close it was $2331.

    This can be explained by market participants expecting higher Federal Reserve interest rates for a longer period. However, although gold is a hedge against inflation, it has two drawbacks:
    → It does not inherently generate income;
    → The gold market may be overvalued – after all, a historical peak was reached on May 20th.

    Therefore, investors are increasingly paying attention to bonds – they also allow hedging against inflation, while their yields are rising.

    [​IMG]

    As the USD/JPY chart shows today:

    → The price is in an upward trend (indicated by the blue channel) that has been relevant since the beginning of 2024.

    → On Thursday, May 23, the exchange rate nearly reached 157.2 yen per US dollar, surpassing the peak of May 14.

    → Following this, the market began to stabilise – indicated by the Bollinger Bands' width showing low volatility, which can be interpreted as a sign of market equilibrium or indecision among participants.

    Can Last Week's Gold Price Rally Be Replicated?
    [​IMG]

    Gold holds a particularly exceptional status among precious metals. Whilst it does have some use in the manufacturing of consumer durables and electronic products ranging from alloy compounds in wedding rings to terminals for connecting electrical cables in audio equipment, its greatest use case is as an investment vehicle for the purposes of storing value in a physical commodity.

    Over recent years, other precious metals such as platinum and cobalt have suddenly seen their status change from that of a rare mineral resource to a material in high demand as they form components used in electric vehicle batteries and other renewable energy-related hardware such as solar panels.

    However, despite the sudden huge demand for these materials for industrial purposes, gold still remains a de facto investable metal whose price movements are often affected by global affairs rather than supply and demand.

    In the latter part of this month, gold reached a record high, according to World Gold Council data, and was trading at $2427.30 on May 21.

    That soon took an opposite turn, and by May 26, FXOpen pricing showed gold to be trading at well under the $2,400 mark.
