    GBP/USD. September 15, 2020 – Pound recovers moderately after long decline

    Although the GBP/USD pair remains in a downward trend, it has been showing signs of recovery since the beginning of this week, responding to the positive British statistics. The current quote for the pair is 1.2890.

    The UK released several economic reports this morning to support the pound. In particular, in July the growth of the average wages amounted to -1.0% against the forecast of -1.3%. The number of applications for unemployment benefits also fell in August. The actual number of requests was 73.7 thousand, while the forecasts assumed an increase to 100 thousand. Unemployment remained at the same level of 4.1%.

    At the same time, the US dollar is under pressure from the protracted dispute in the US Congress over the issue of an additional package of monetary stimulus measures. In the evening hours, you should pay attention to the data on industrial production in the United States. Experts predict a slowdown in the decline in production from -8.2% to -6.1%, which may support the dollar.

    The RSI indicator continues to rise towards the resistance zone, which signals the continued growth of the pound to the level of 1.29 and subsequent consolidation in this area.

    EUR/USD. September 17, 2020 – The dollar strengthened after the meeting of the US Federal Reserve, but not for long

    Yesterday, the results of the two-day meeting of the US Federal Reserve became known, which provided significant support to the dollar. In the evening hours, the quotes of the EUR/USD pair fell to the level of 1.1735. However, on Thursday the euro managed to make up for all the losses and return to the level of 1.1800.

    The Open Markets Committee of the Federal Reserve System decided to leave the parameters of monetary policy unchanged. The key rate was kept at the historically minimal level – in the range of 0-0.25% per annum. At the same time, most Fed leaders expect the rate to remain in the current range until the end of 2023.

    The ultra-soft monetary policy will continue until unemployment drops to estimated levels and inflation accelerates to 2%.

    The Central Bank also improved its forecasts for GDP and unemployment for 2020: from -6.5% to -3.7% and from 9.3% to 7.6%. Jerome Powell noted that over the past two months, the US economy has been recovering faster than expected.

    Today you should pay attention to the data on inflation in the euro area. Experts forecast a decline from 0.4% to -0.2%. And this will already become the official recognition of Europe's slide into deflation. The states will provide data on the number of applications for unemployment benefits. Experts expect further growth in the number of applications.

    Brent. September 21, 2020 – The oil market began to recover

    Oil prices recovered more than 10% last week and Brent quotes returned to the area above $42 per barrel. The current quotation of the asset is $42.40. The weekly high was $43.78 per barrel. Experts believe that the «bullish» rally to the $45 area may resume.

    The prices were supported by data on changes in oil reserves in the United States, as well as restrictions on production in the Gulf of Mexico caused by the hurricane season. According to the US Energy Information Administration (EIA), oil reserves in the United States fell 4.4 million barrels, exceeding the forecast for a decline of 1.8 million barrels.

    In the US, the active hurricane season continues. To date, due to the threat of Hurricane Sally in the Gulf of Mexico, the work of 27.48% of oil production capacities has been suspended.

    An additional driver of price growth was the outcome of the OPEC + meeting, during which the participants in the energy pact reaffirmed their commitment to the current agreement. Earlier, the organization reduced the production cut from 9.7 million barrels per day to 7.7 million, starting in August. At the same time, countries that had not previously completed the deal in full, pledged to compensate for excess production in the coming months.

    GBP/USD. September 23, 2020 – Pound weakly strengthens from 1.2700

    The GBP/USD pair continues to decline against the dollar, falling to 1.2670 for the first time since late July. The current quote for the pair is 1.2730.

    The main pressure on the British pound comes from the uncertainty over Brexit. The date of the country's withdrawal from the EU is approaching, but the parties have failed to reach agreements on many issues, and a «hard» Brexit scenario is becoming more and more likely.

    Additional pressure on the British currency is exerted by a sharp deterioration of the epidemiological situation in the UK. Prime Minister Boris Johnson yesterday announced new restrictive measures and advised companies to move their employees to work remotely. Most likely, the country will face a new lockdown with the shutdown of enterprises, which will once again cause huge damage to the British economy.

    Bank of England Governor Andrew Bailey made a speech yesterday. He stated that negative rates are an important tool in the regulator's arsenal, but that their introduction will take time and technical preparatory work. Thus, the head of the Bank of England signaled a possible transition of monetary policy from zero to negative rates.

    EUR/USD. September 23, 2020 – Euro is recovering after yesterday's fall

    During yesterday's day, the EUR/USD pair dipped to the level of 1.1670, the current quote of the pair is 1.1710. The pressure on the European currency is exerted by the worsening epidemiological situation with regard to Covid-19 in the eurozone and the UK. The British Prime Minister announced new restrictive measures and invited companies to transfer as many workers as possible to remote work.

    In addition, the dynamics of the pair is also affected by the strengthening of the dollar, which rose after the statement of Charles Evans about the possibility of moving to raising rates earlier than planned.

    Yesterday's speeches by J. Powell and C. Lagarde increased the volatility in EUR/USD trading. Powell noted that the US banking system is holding up well during the pandemic, but there is much work to be done to restore the economy in the future and the prospects for the banking sector have not been determined. Today the head of the Fed will speak in the House of Representatives, and on Thursday – in the Senate Banking Committee.

    The head of the ECB, in turn, said at yesterday's speech that the regulator is closely monitoring the rate of the single European currency. Today, the euro was supported by data from Germany, where the index of business activity in the manufacturing sector rose better than expected – to 56.6 points (the forecast assumed that the indicator would remain at the level of 52.2).

    EUR/USD. September 24, 2020 – Euro is trading in the area of local lows

    On Thursday, the euro remains in a weak position and hovers around 1.1640. The pressure on the currency is exerting strong demand for the dollar as a «safe» asset amid a rise in the number of new cases of coronavirus in the world. According to experts, in Germany, Spain, Portugal and other countries, daily incidence records are being updated.

    The dollar rallies even as the preliminary September Markit index of US services PMI declines. The indicator was 54.6 points against the previous value of 55.0. At the same time, the official data on this indicator reflected a slight improvement and showed an increase to 53.5 points from the previous 53.1.

    At the same time, the euro was under pressure today from the data on the business climate from IFO in Germany. The index rose to just 93.4 points, while the forecasts assumed growth to 93.8. In the afternoon, you should pay attention to the data on applications for unemployment benefits in the United States. The number of applications is expected to decrease from 860 thousand to 845 thousand. If the forecasts justify themselves, the dollar will receive additional support, since such data signal a further recovery of the labor market.

    EUR/USD. September 25, 2020 – The dollar is confidently moving to new highs

    The EUR/USD pair continues to decline on Friday, and the euro runs the risk of renewing local minimums in the 1.1620 area during the day. The current quote for the pair is 1.1635.

    The main support for the dollar, driving its growth, comes from the need of global investors for «safe» assets, as more countries mark the signs of a second wave of coronavirus. At the same time, market participants ignore the relatively weak American statistics. According to yesterday's data, the number of applications for unemployment benefits showed an increase to 870 thousand from the previous level of 866 thousand. The forecast was more optimistic and assumed a decrease in the indicator to 845 thousand.

    The dollar showed some weakening yesterday, as investors' appetite for risky assets increased amid resumption of talks on additional stimulus for the US economy in the amount of $2.2 trillion.

    Today we should pay attention to the publication of the US report on orders for durable goods for August, where the indicator could have increased by 1.1% m/m after earlier growth by 11.4% m/m. Macroeconomic publications are not expected in the euro area, so the dynamics of the EUR/USD pair will depend on data from the United States.

    USD/CAD. September 29, 2020 – Looney makes weak attempts to recover

    On Tuesday, the USD/CAD pair is showing a moderate decline, moving in the range of 1.3350-1.3400. The current quote for the pair is 1.3360.

    The trading instrument is in the area of local highs in anticipation of new movement drivers. In the context of the coming second wave of the pandemic, the US dollar feels more confident than the «Canadian». However, there are factors that put some pressure on the USD rate. In particular, this is the uncertainty associated with the upcoming presidential elections.

    The first debate between Donald Trump and Joe Biden kicks off tomorrow. The further direction of the American currency and its main Forex opponents will depend on the results of the meeting.

    Macroeconomic calendar for today is not rich in publications. Attention should be paid to data on producer prices in Canada, but the rate of their decline should remain unchanged at 0.7%, so they are unlikely to somehow affect the Canadian dollar. The US is to report on the Conference Board Consumer Confidence Index. The indicator is expected to grow from 84.8 to 89.2 points.

    Brent. October 01, 2020 – Oil recovers after EIA report

    During trading on Wednesday, oil started to rise to $42.50 per barrel. The prices were supported by data from the US Department of Energy on crude oil reserves in the country. According to a report by the Energy Information Administration (EIA), oil reserves in the reporting week fell by 2 million barrels to 492.4 million barrels. Analysts predicted an increase in reserves by 800 thousand barrels.

    Now total US stocks are about 13% above the 5-year average. At the same time, gasoline inventories unexpectedly rose by 683 thousand barrels to 228.2 million barrels, while analysts expected their decline by 700 thousand barrels. Oil production in the US remained unchanged from the previous week at 10.7 million barrels per day.

    Additional support for oil prices was provided by the decline in the US dollar across the Forex market amid increased hopes for the approval of a new package of fiscal stimulus measures in the United States. Market participants expect that the new bailout fund will be able to improve the prospects for economic growth and positively affect the demand for commodity assets. Thus, in case of agreement on the aid package, the current recovery in Brent may continue, the main target of the «bulls» is the $43 per barrel area.

    GBP/USD. September 30, 2020 – The pound is consolidating at the 1.2850 area

    The pound sterling has suspended growth against the dollar and is consolidating in the area of 1.2850. Statistics released today in the UK reflected local improvements in the UK economy. However, these data relate more to the II quarter, so the market is in no hurry to assess them too positively.

    In particular, final UK 2Q GDP fell 19.8% QoQ versus a previous estimate of a 20.4% decline. Analysts did not predict a revision of the indicator, so we can say that the statistics have become a little more positive.

    The final calculation of the volume of business investments in the second quarter reflected a decrease of 26.5% qoq, while according to the first estimate, the indicator fell by 31.4%. Business caution can be attributed not only to the coronavirus pandemic, but also to the difficult Brexit negotiations. It can be assumed that business is simply not in a hurry to invest finance so as not to take risks, while the prospects for Brexit are so uncertain.

    Today the pair will spend the day in a narrow range of 1.2800-1.2850. The RSI indicator has stabilized in the neutral zone, which only confirms this scenario.
