    EUR/USD, GBP/USD, and USD/JPY Analysis: US Dollar Growing Against Euro and Pound
    [​IMG]

    The US personal consumer spending price index rose 3% in October from a year earlier, down from the three-month rate of 3.4%, although still above the Fed's 2% target, raising the possibility of an early rate cut. Jobless claims rose over the past week, indicating a slowing labour market. Inflation, as measured by the price index for personal consumption expenditures (PCE), remained unchanged in October after rising 0.4% in September.
    EUR/USD

    According to the technical analysis of EUR/USD, the pair is showing noticeable growth, correcting after an active decline the day before, which turned out to be the most significant in the last few weeks. The euro is testing the 1.0900 mark for an upward breakout, awaiting the publication of macroeconomic statistics from the EU and the USA. Among other things, speeches are expected throughout the day from the heads of the US Federal Reserve and the ECB, who are likely to comment on the likelihood of ending the monetary policy tightening program amid a sharp slowdown in price pressure.

    The day before, November inflation data was published in the eurozone. The consumer price index in annual terms fell from 2.9% to 2.4%, which was significantly lower than forecasts of 2.7% and was the slowest growth rate since July 2021, and in monthly terms the figure was -0.5%. Core inflation slowed from 4.2% to 3.6% in annual terms, which was also below expectations at 3.9%, and in monthly terms the index decreased by 0.6%. At the same time, the day before, ECB head Christine Lagarde said that price growth could resume in the near future due to certain factors.

    Immediate resistance can be seen at 1.0940, a break higher could trigger a rise towards 1.1000. On the downside, immediate support is seen at 1.0872, a break below could take the pair towards 1.0800.

    Based on the lows of two days, a new downward channel has formed. Now the price has moved away from the lower border of the channel and may continue to rise.

    EUR/USD, GBP/USD, USD/JPY Analysis: US Dollar Weakens after Fed Chairman's Comments
    [​IMG]

    Today, investors are assessing the speech of US Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell, who indicated that the interest rate is currently at a restrictive level, but the regulator allows for the possibility of another increase if necessary. The manufacturing business activity index from S&P Global in the US remained at 49.4 points, which coincided with analysts' forecasts, and the same indicator from the Institute for Supply Management (ISM) remained at 46.7 points, contrary to forecasts for growth to 47.6 points. The manufacturing index of gradual acceleration of inflation from the ISM in November sharply increased from 45.1 points to 49.9 points, while experts expected 46.2 points. In the US today, statistics on the volume of manufacturing orders will be presented: in October, the figure may lose 2.5% after growing by 2.8% in the previous month.

    EUR/USD
    [​IMG]

    The EUR/USD pair is showing a moderate decline. According to the EUR/USD technical analysis, the euro is testing the 1.0870 level for a breakdown downwards, but activity on the market remains restrained. Investors today are watching publications from Germany, where exports in October adjusted from -2.5% to 0.2%, and imports from -1.9% to -1.2%, while the trade surplus widened from 16.7 billion euros to 17.0 billion euros, signaling the recovery of the national economy, despite the long-term hawkish course of the ECB. In addition, representatives of the European regulator, as well as its head Christine Lagarde, are expected to speak during the day. Officials may refine their plans for the monetary policy outlook given that inflation continues to show fairly consistent signs of decline.

    Immediate resistance can be seen at 1.0892, a break higher could trigger a rise towards 1.0977. On the downside, immediate support is seen at 1.0822, a break below could take the pair towards 1.0758.

    Based on last week's lows, a new downward channel has formed. Now, the price is in the middle of the channel and may continue to decline after approaching the upper border of the channel.

    Market Analysis: Bitcoin Surpasses $40,000 Per Coin
    [​IMG]

    December begins extremely optimistically for the cryptocurrency market, resembling:
    → December 2020, when bitcoin grew by 46.9%;
    → December 2017, when bitcoin grew by 38.9%;
    → December 2016, when bitcoin grew by 30.8%.

    If there are psychological patterns in the increase in demand on the eve of the holidays, then perhaps they come into force, since on the morning of December 4, the price of Bitcoin exceeded the psychological barrier of 40k and reached 41,700 per coin — for the first time since April 2022.

    Fundamentally, demand is based on expectations of the approval of several Bitcoin ETFs. The fear and greed index reached a value of 74, indicating growing greed. Another driver is expectations of Fed rate cuts, which leads to more affordable loans and, accordingly, increased demand for risky assets.

    5 Stocks To Consider in December 2023
    [​IMG]

    As we approach the curtain call for 2023, it's time to reflect on a year filled with market-shaping events. From the resurrection of tech stocks to the fall of financial institutions, the capital markets sector has been anything but dull. Against a backdrop of geopolitical shifts and the paradox of rising interest rates amid reduced inflation, investors and traders are closing the year with a multitude of perspectives.

    In the heart of December, the spotlight is on tech stocks, particularly those powerhouse companies headquartered in Silicon Valley. Here are the top five movers in the global stock markets as the last month of the year gets underway, each with its own narrative and potential.

    Market Analysis: Gold Falls from Record High by $100 in 1 Day
    [​IMG]

    The record high of about USD 2,130 an ounce was set just after the weekend in low-liquid Asian markets. By the nature of the movement, it looked more like a cascading triggering of sellers’ stop losses, rather than finding a stable balance between supply and demand, since after the candle with a long upper tail, the quote began to fall. During the European session it fell to 2,060, and during the American session it fell to 2,030. So in less than a day, the price of gold fell about USD 100, making Monday's close further from the record top than Friday's close — essentially similar to a change in market sentiment, in which a bearish engulfing pattern is formed.

    From a fundamental point of view, the gold market is influenced by:
    → Jerome Powell's words that expectations of a rate cut may be “premature”;
    → positioning traders at the beginning of the working week. Important news on the US labor market is expected on Friday.

    S&P500: The end of a significant rally?
    [​IMG]

    Opinions vary across the financial markets this morning as the S&P 500 index, a prestigious benchmark tracking the performance of 500 major US companies, takes centre stage in recent market discussions. Just days ago, on the first trading day of December, the S&P 500 soared to its highest point in over a year, capping off at 4,594.63 points.

    This upward momentum persisted until yesterday morning when the US market concluded its session, witnessing a sudden tapering of the rally. While not indicative of a crash, the decline in the S&P 500's value has piqued the interest of financial analysts. The significance lies in whether this marks a temporary blip in the midst of a more extended upward trajectory or signals the conclusion of a sustained period of growth since its all-time high in 2022.

    What adds intrigue to this scenario is the S&P 500's five-week upward trend, raising questions about the potential impact on the longer-term direction of the index. A critical point of comparison emerges when assessing these traditional 'bricks and mortar' stocks against the dynamic tech stocks listed on NASDAQ. The blue-chip Dow has recorded a modest 9% gain for the year, in stark contrast to the tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite's impressive 35% climb in 2023.

    USD/JPY, USD/CAD, and EUR/USD Analysis: The US Dollar Corrected in Anticipation of PMI Data Release
    [​IMG]

    In the first trading hours of the current five-day period, the American currency made a number of attempts to regain the positions lost last week and begin an upward correction. Thus, the USD/JPY pair found support just above 146.00 and tested resistance at 147.50, USD/CAD buyers defended support at 1.3500, and the EUR/USD pair dropped to the important level of 1.0800 yesterday. Whether there will be a continuation of yesterday's movements can be understood after the release of the incoming fundamentals of the current five-day period.

    USD/JPY

    [​IMG]

    Growing expectations among market participants regarding a reduction in the Fed's base interest rate next year is pushing the USD/JPY pair to new lows. If data on inflation and the labour market in the US disappoint officials, the timing of changes in monetary policy could change dramatically, which in turn could return the USD/JPY pair above 150.00.

    Today at 17:45 GMT+3, we are waiting for the publication of data on the business activity index (PMI) in the US services sector for November. A little later, at 18:00 GMT+3, indicators on the number of open vacancies on the US labour market for October and the Purchasing Managers' Index for the non-manufacturing sector from ISM will be released. Tomorrow we are waiting for a preliminary report on employment in the US from ADR.

    Gold Price Technical Analysis
    [​IMG]

    On the hourly chart of Gold at FXOpen, the price rallied heavily above the $2,000 resistance. The price even traded to a new high at $2,135 before there was a downside correction.

    There was a move below the $2,072 support level. The bears even pushed the price below the $2,050 support and the 50-hour simple moving average. It tested the $2,010 zone. A low is formed near $2,009.78 and the price is now attempting a fresh increase.

    It is now facing resistance near a key bearish trend line at $2,025. The next major resistance is near the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the $2,135 swing high to the $2,009 low at $2,040.

    The main resistance could be $2,050, above which the price could test the $2,072 resistance. The next major resistance is $2,135. An upside break above the $2,135 resistance could send Gold price toward $2,220. Any more gains may perhaps set the pace for an increase toward the $2,350 level.

    Initial support on the downside is near the $2,010 level. The first major support is near the $2,000 level. If there is a downside break below the $2,000 support, the price might decline further. In the stated case, the price might drop toward the $1,965 support.

    WTI Oil Price Drops to Lowest Level Since July
    [​IMG]

    As the chart shows, the price of a barrel of US crude oil dropped below 72.10 per barrel yesterday for the first time since July 2023.

    Fundamentally, this happened against the backdrop of:

    → Statistics showing that US oil exports are increasing. Volume is approaching a record 6 million barrels per day, with flows to Europe and Asia showing steady growth.
    → Previously announced measures to reduce oil production by OPEC+. However, either the price has already taken these statements into account in advance, or market participants are not confident that the reduction in OPEC+ supplies will be fully implemented — one way or another, so far the OPEC+ countries have not achieved the desired increase in oil prices. Perhaps, in order to discuss the oil market, Russian President Putin is flying to the UAE and Saudi Arabia today. And Deputy Prime Minister Alexander Novak said OPEC+ is ready to deepen oil production cuts in the first quarter of 2024 to eliminate “speculation and volatility” if existing production reduction measures are not enough.
