    USD/CAD, AUD/USD, EUR/USD Analysis: Commodity Currencies and Euro Poised to Resume Growth
    [​IMG]

    After the publication of the FOMC protocols on Tuesday, the dollar managed to partially regain its lost positions. Thus, in the dollar/yen pair one could observe a corrective pullback to figure 149, the US dollar/canadian dollar pair almost tested 1.3800, and the AUD/USD pair tested the important level of 0.6500, but as support. European currencies also retreated from previously reached highs. However, US dollar buyers have not yet been able to develop a full-fledged upward movement, and yesterday evening the main trends established in early November continued in many pairs.
    USD/CAD

    In the USD to CAD chart, we are seeing a rebound from the resistance located at the alligator lines on the daily timeframe. The pair continues to work out the reversal bearish combination from November 1st. With the appropriate foundation, a breakdown of the lower fractal at 1.3650 is possible and the pair may continue to decline in the direction of 1.3500-1.3400. We may consider canceling the downward scenario if the pair confidently consolidates above 1.3800.

    Today at 16:30 GMT+3, we are waiting for data on wholesale sales and corporate income in Canada for the current quarter. The core Canadian retail sales index for September will be released at this time tomorrow.

    European Shares Rise on Improving PMI Readings
    [​IMG]

    Yesterday, the values of the PMI index (it is characterized as a leading indicator of industrial production and services) for European countries were published:
    → in Germany: fact = 42.3; expected = 41.1; a month earlier = 40.7;
    → in France: fact = 42.6; expected = 43.2; a month earlier = 42.6;

    Although the index values are below 50, indicating a contraction in the economy, the dynamics are encouraging. Thus, in France, the index stabilized after a series of declines. And in Germany, the index is consistently growing after a minimum of 38.8 in July. In this way, business is reacting to the fact that the ECB may have reached the peak of increases and monetary policy will not tighten in the future.

    At the same time, the ESX50 index of 50 European shares gained bullish momentum and reached its highest levels since mid-August. Equity market participants may be feeling strongly positive about the rally of more than +9% in less than a month.

    [​IMG]

    Gold price surged toward the $2,000 zone before the bears appeared. Crude oil price is attempting a recovery wave above the $75.00 zone.

    Important Takeaways for Gold and Oil Prices Analysis Today

    • Gold price started a steady increase from the $1,965 zone against the US Dollar.
    • A key bearish trend line is forming with resistance at $1,995 on the hourly chart of gold at FXOpen.
    • Crude oil prices started a decent recovery wave from the $73.80 support.
    • There is a connecting bearish trend line forming with resistance near $77.00 on the hourly chart of XTI/USD at FXOpen.

    Gold Price Technical Analysis
    [​IMG]

    On the hourly chart of Gold at FXOpen, the price found support near the $1,965 zone. The price remained in a bullish zone and started a strong increase above $1,985.

    There was a decent move above the 50-hour simple moving average. The bulls pushed the price above the $1,985 and $1,995 resistance levels. Finally, the price tested the $2,005 zone before the bears appeared.

    There was a minor downside correction below $2,000 and the RSI dipped below 50. There was a move below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $1,965 swing low to the $2,007 high.

    Initial support on the downside is near the 50% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $1,965 swing low to the $2,007 high at $1,985. The first major support is near the $1,975 zone.

    If there is a downside break below the $1,975 support, the price might decline further. In the stated case, the price might drop toward the $1,965 support.

    Immediate resistance is near a key bearish trend line at $1,995 and the 50-hour simple moving average. The next major resistance is near the $2,005 level. An upside break above the $2,005 resistance could send Gold price toward $2,020. Any more gains may perhaps set the pace for an increase toward the $2,032 level.

    [​IMG]

    GBP/USD is gaining pace above the 1.2575 resistance. EUR/GBP declined heavily below the 0.8720 and 0.8695 support levels.

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

    • The British Pound is attempting a fresh increase above 1.2600.
    • There is a key bullish trend line forming with support near 1.2575 on the hourly chart of GBP/USD at FXOpen.
    • EUR/GBP is trading in a bearish zone below the 0.8720 pivot level.
    • There is a major bearish trend line forming with resistance near 0.8695 on the hourly chart at FXOpen.

    GBP/USD Technical Analysis
    [​IMG]

    On the hourly chart of GBP/USD at FXOpen, the pair remained well-bid above the 1.2450 level. As mentioned in the previous analysis, the British Pound started a decent increase above the 1.2500 zone against the US Dollar.

    The bulls were able to push the pair above the 50-hour simple moving average and 1.2530. The pair even climbed above 1.2575 and traded as high as 1.2615. It is now consolidating gains above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the 1.2449 swing low to the 1.2615 high.

    On the upside, the GBP/USD chart indicates that the pair is facing resistance near 1.2615. The next major resistance is near 1.2640.

    A close above the 1.2640 resistance zone could open the doors for a move toward 1.2700. Any more gains might send GBP/USD toward 1.2740.

    On the downside, there is a key support forming near a bullish trend line at 1.2575. If there is a downside break below 1.2575, the pair could accelerate lower. The next major support is near the 50% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the 1.2449 swing low to the 1.2615 high at 1.2530.

    The next key support is seen near 1.2510, below which the pair could test 1.2450. Any more losses could lead the pair toward the 1.2370 support.

    Market Analysis: Results of Black Friday in Financial Markets
    [​IMG]

    As CNN reports, Black Friday brought single-day sales records in the United States. According to Mastercard SpendingPulse, offline sales increased by 1%, and online sales by 8.5%. According to Sensormatic Solutions, store traffic increased by 4.6% year on year. Shopify reported record sales growth of 22% year over year to $4 billion worldwide.

    The activity of buyers indicates the stability of the US economy, which is reflected in the stock markets — the S&P 500 index is near the highs of the year. However, the beginning of the week may bring an unpleasant surprise: on Thursday, the publication of the values of the PME indicator, which is closely monitored by the Federal Reserve to assess inflation in the United States, will take place.

    Meanwhile, Black Friday became a significant day in the cryptocurrency market — the price of bitcoin reached a new high of the year, exceeding the level of 38k dollars per coin. Perhaps the generosity of buyers on Black Friday helped create a record for the year, but the bulls failed to maintain the achieved levels. The BTC/USD chart shows that:

    → exceeding the level of 38k dollars looks like a false breakout of the previous top;
    → a false breakout formed a bearish engulfing pattern;
    → according to online metrics, on Black Friday, short positions on crypto exchanges were liquidated in the amount of $15 to $20 million;
    → The MACD indicator shows a series of decreasing highs 1-2-3-4, which may indicate the depletion of demand forces, which is stimulated by the anticipation of the approval of the bitcoin ETF.

    Australian Dollar Reaches Its Highest Since Early August
    [​IMG]

    Important events regarding AUD took place this morning:
    → the level of retail sales for the month in Australia unexpectedly fell: actual = -0.2%, expected = +0.1%, a month earlier = +0.9%.
    → a press conference was held by the head of the RBA, Michelle Bullock, according to whom inflation in Australia follows the path of overseas countries. That is, inflation is decreasing, as in the USA and Great Britain.

    Against the background of these events, the AUD/USD rate exceeded the level of 0.663 for the first time since the beginning of August. The rally from the late October low is already about 5.5%. However, this upward trend has 3 important obstacles:

    The upper limit of the November ascending channel (shown in blue).
    The upper limit of the longer-term parallel channel (shown in red).
    Level 0.660. During 2023, it worked as support once. Therefore, from the point of view of technical analysis, there is reason to expect that it will provide resistance.

    Natural Gas Prices Fall to More than 2-month Lows
    [​IMG]

    Yesterday, XNG/USD quotes dropped below the 2,900 level for the first time since mid-September. This was helped by the fact that the NatGasWeather weather forecasting model late last week showed a cooling trend in December in the US, but this was replaced by warming over the weekend.

    According to analyst forecasts from Analysts Tudor, Pickering, Holt & Co., published on Monday:
    → natural gas reserves at the end of winter could be 2 trillion cubic feet (previously forecast 1.9 trillion);
    → price could be USD 2.75 (previous forecast was USD 3 or less).

    USD/JPY, GBP/USD, and EUR/USD Market Analysis: The US Dollar Continues to Fall
    [​IMG]

    The downward movement in the American currency, which began at the end of October, resumed with renewed vigour at the beginning of the current five-day trading period.

    Thus, the euro/US dollar pair is consolidating at 1.0900, the pound/US dollar pair has confidently strengthened above 1.2600, and USD/JPY sellers have broken through the resistance at 149. Nevertheless, the coming trading sessions are quite saturated with the fundamentals, so it is possible to see both the strengthening of existing trends and the beginning of corrective pullbacks from the main movements.

    USD/JPY

    The cooling of the US labour market and lower inflation are contributing to increased bearish sentiment on the dollar. More and more market participants are becoming confident that the most aggressive rate-tightening cycle of the last couple of decades is behind us, and the Fed could cut its benchmark interest rate as soon as the first quarter of 2024. On the contrary, the Bank of Japan has been adhering to a policy of ultra-low interest rates for a long time, and if it decides to change the current vector of monetary policy, the dollar/yen pair may suffer significant losses.

    Last week, on the USD/JPY chart, the pair almost tested a significant support level at 147.00. Greenback buyers managed to correct to 149.70, but yesterday evening the pair was trading below 149.00.

    Today we are waiting for data on the US consumer confidence index from CB for November. Analysts expect a decline in the indicator, which may contribute to a retest of 147.00. We could consider cancelling the downward scenario only after a confident strengthening above 150.00.

    EUR/USD Technical Analysis
    [​IMG]

    On the hourly chart of EUR/USD at FXOpen, the pair started fresh above the 1.0900 zone. The Euro climbed above the 1.0930 resistance zone against the US Dollar, as mentioned in the previous analysis.

    The pair even settled above the 1.0965 resistance and the 50-hour simple moving average. Finally, it tested the 1.1020 resistance. A high is formed near 1.1017 and the pair is now consolidating gains.

    If there is a downside correction, the pair might test the 50% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the 1.0935 swing low to the 1.1017 high at 1.0975. There is also a key bullish trend line forming with support near 1.0975.

    The next major support is near the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the 1.0935 swing low to the 1.1017 high and the 50-hour simple moving average at 1.0965.

    If there is a downside break below 1.0965, the pair could drop toward the 1.0930 support. The main support on the EUR/USD chart is near 1.0895, below which the pair could start a major decline.

    On the upside, the pair is now facing resistance near 1.1020. The next major resistance is near the 1.1050 level. An upside break above 1.1050 could set the pace for another increase. In the stated case, the pair might rise toward 1.1140.
