    Rising Bond Yields Are Driving Down Price of Gold


    The yield on 10-year bonds exceeded 4.5% per annum – a 16-year high. The demand for them was promoted by:
    → tough statements from the Fed last week that the high base interest rate will remain as long as necessary. Moreover, Minneapolis Fed President Neel Kashkari said he expects another increase;
    → concerns related to the likelihood of a US government shutdown on October 1. At the same time, Moody's issued a stern warning, jeopardizing the country's triple-A rating.

    It can be assumed that investors choose bonds when forming a portfolio of protective assets. This puts pressure on the gold, which “loses its shine” in their eyes.

    USD/JPY Analysis: For the First Time This Year, the Rate Exceeds 149 Yen Per Dollar


    The reason for the stable trend, as we have repeatedly pointed out, is the difference in the monetary policy of the USA and Japan. Inflation in Japan has been above 2% for more than a year, and the media are increasingly publishing expert opinions that the Bank of Japan will raise short-term interest rates from the current -0.1% at the end of this year. However, today Reuters published the opinion of Mr. Makoto Sakurai, the former head of the Bank of Japan. According to him:

    → the Bank of Japan may delay ending negative interest rates until around April next year;
    → the abolition of negative rates, which have been in place since 2016, will not harm the economy;
    → uncertainty about the economic prospects of the United States and China also gives the Bank of Japan a reason to delay raising rates, Sakurai added.

    That is, the existing gap in monetary policy may continue for another six months, which will push the USD/JPY rate higher and higher. And it is not surprising that, as the chart shows, today the rate exceeded 149 yen per US dollar for the first time in a year, further increasing the likelihood of reaching the psychological level of 150 yen.

    US Federal Reserve Contemplates Future Interest Rate Hikes Amid Economic Resilience


    In an intriguing turn of events, the US Federal Reserve has hinted at the possibility of yet another interest rate hike in the near future, keeping financial markets on their toes.

    During its September 2023 meeting, the Federal Reserve chose to maintain the target range for the federal funds rate at an impressive 5.25%-5.5%, a level not seen in 22 years. This decision was in line with market expectations and followed a 25 basis-point hike in July. What piqued the interest of investors and economists alike, however, was the central bank's signal that another rate increase might be in the cards before the year's end.

    The Federal Reserve's projections, as revealed in the dot plot, suggest the likelihood of one more rate hike in the current year, followed by two rate cuts in 2024. This cautious approach is in response to recent economic indicators, which point to robust expansion in economic activity. While job gains have slowed in recent months, they continue to exhibit strength, and the unemployment rate remains impressively low. On the surface, this move may seem counterintuitive, especially when considering that inflation in the United States has been well-contained for over a year and stands at less than half the levels witnessed in certain parts of the European Union.

    The Yen and European Currencies Headed to New Lows


    The main currency pairs began the last five-day trading period of September with a new wave of growth for the American currency. Changes in the Fed's point forecast for next year provided powerful support to the dollar, which, in turn, contributed to the search for the bottom in the euro, yen and pound.

    The GBP/USD currency pair is testing support at a significant level of 1.2200, the EUR/USD pair is heading towards the January extremes of this year, and the USD/JPY pair has resumed growth in the direction of 150. Apparently, in the coming trading sessions, we can expect another upward impulse on the greenback. At the same time, we must take into account that these pairs are very close to important ranges, the test of which may end in a corrective rollback or reversal.

    GBP/USD

    The pound turned out to be quite susceptible to the outcome of the recent Bank of England meeting. The regulator left the rate at the same level, while analysts predicted a rate increase of another 0.25%. Add to this a number of weak macroeconomic indicators from the UK, published last week, and we get a stable downward trend for GBP. The price has already dropped below 1.2200, and since there are no reversal combinations, a test of 1.2100-1.2000 may happen.
    From the fundamental analysis point of view, today, we are waiting for data on the number of building permits issued in the United States. The US Consumer Confidence Index for September will also be published (17:00 GMT+3).

    AMZN Stock Analysis: 4 Reasons to Doubt the Bullish Outlook


    After the Fed signaled last week that rates may be higher for longer than expected, the US stock market has received a strong bearish boost. And among the most vulnerable assets were technology stocks (considered risky). The NASDAQ index has already fallen by about 6% since last Wednesday (when the FOMC meeting took place). And the negative backdrop from the Fed is one of the 4 issues that give reason to doubt the bullish outlook for AMZN stock.

    The second reason is that AMZN has fallen 9% in value since last Wednesday. That is, AMZN is falling faster than the overall market. And this problem is not new. Compare the dynamics of the index and Amazon shares on a weekly timeframe and you will see that the shares have been performing weaker than the index since the summer of 2020. That is, the leadership status that was held for many years has been lost.

    EUR/USD Takes Hit While USD/CHF Surges


    EUR/USD started a fresh decline below the 1.0615 support. USD/CHF is rising and might aim a move toward the 0.9220 resistance.

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


    • The Euro struggled to clear the 1.0670 resistance and declined against the US Dollar.
    • There is a major bearish trend line forming with resistance near 1.0585 on the hourly chart of EUR/USD at FXOpen.
    • USD/CHF is gaining pace above the 0.9135 resistance zone.
    • There is a key bullish trend line forming with support near 0.9150 on the hourly chart at FXOpen.



    EUR/USD Technical Analysis

    On the hourly chart of EUR/USD at FXOpen, the pair failed to clear the 1.0670 resistance. The Euro started a fresh decline below the 1.0615 support against the US Dollar, as mentioned in the previous analysis.

    There was a move below the 50-hour simple moving average and 1.0600. The bears were able to push the pair below the 1.0585 pivot level. The pair traded as low as 1.0556 and is currently showing a lot of bearish signs.

    Immediate resistance on the upside is near the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the 1.0671 swing high to the 1.0556 low. There is also a major bearish trend line forming with resistance near 1.0585 and the 50-hour simple moving average.

    The first major resistance is near the 50% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the 1.0671 swing high to the 1.0556 low at 1.0615. An upside break above the 1.0615 level might send the pair toward the 1.0670 resistance. Any more gains might open the doors for a move toward the 1.0720 level.

    On the downside, immediate support on the EUR/USD chart is seen near 1.0555. The next major support is near the 1.0540 level. A downside break below the 1.0540 support could send the pair toward the 1.0500 level.

    Inflation Still Dogs the Economy: What Are the Central Banks Doing About It?


    High inflation continues to grip European economies, putting central banks in a tight spot as they grapple with the triple dilemma of slowing growth, persistent inflation, and the impact of unprecedented rate hikes.

    In September, we witnessed a shift in tone from central banks across the region, with some hitting the brakes on interest rate hikes after nearly two years of tightening, while others appeared to be approaching peak rates.

    This shift has brought the spotlight to a critical question: how long will these rates remain steady in the face of economic challenges?

    One common thread among these central banks is the proximity of their interest rates to their presumed peaks, adding complexity to the ongoing balancing act.

    The recent surge in oil prices has further complicated the situation. While it has the potential to fuel inflation, it also exerts downward pressure on economic growth, making future interest rate decisions even more uncertain.

    Oil Surges to a New High of the Year


    As the chart shows, the day before yesterday, a barrel of WTI cost USD 87.87, but this morning, the price exceeded the level of USD 93. That is, the growth was more than 6% in just 2 days.

    The main driver of such growth remains the voluntary reduction in oil production by OPEC+ countries. Added to this was the market's reaction to yesterday's news about the reduction in oil reserves in the United States (expected = -0.7 million barrels, actual = -2.2 million). Inventories are approaching historical lows, according to Reuters. Probably, the US authorities, by releasing oil from storage, are trying to reduce the impact of its high price on inflation, but the graph shows that these efforts are unlikely to give the desired result.

    S&P 500 Analysis: Price Reaches The Edge of Abyss


    Investors in the US stock market have serious reasons to worry:

    → The likelihood of a shutdown of government agencies is becoming more and more real. It could happen as early as next week if a budget agreement is not reached (A new fiscal year begins on October 1 in the United States).
    → The prospect of a high policy rate that could last longer than expected is weighing heavily, causing the S&P 500 to decline markedly since last Wednesday's Fed meeting.
    → According to MarketWatch, the so-called “fear index” (using several input data, including the Cboe VIX volatility index) reached the “extreme fear” level for the first time since March 15, when a series of US bank failures occurred.

    Bitcoin Cash Analysis: Promising Resistance Breakout


    Yesterday, the head of the SEC regulator, Gary Gensler, answered questions for 4 hours before the Financial Services Committee of the US House of Representatives, which, among other things, related to cryptocurrencies.

    What has become known:

    → on the eve of the hearing, Gary Gensler was sent a letter from four members of the US Congress demanding approval of applications for ETFs based on cryptocurrencies;
    → the head of the SEC avoided answering questions about the timing of decisions on these applications, although he noted that if the agency’s work was stopped on October 1 (like other government agencies), this would slow down the process;
    → for participants in the cryptocurrency market, the event could have given a positive impetus if Gensler’s words had contained hints of positivity, but he once again spoke out about the dangerous prohibited practices that crypto firms use.
