GBP/USD falls from 1.3080 as the DXY declines on improved risk appetite

The GBP/USD pair has seen some hefty bids at 1.3080 as investors’ risk appetite improves and risk-perceived assets acquire more demand. Previously, the cable underperformed despite the Bank of England’s tightening monetary policies (BOE). To counteract rising inflation, the Bank of England raised interest rates to 0.75 percent. The central bank increased its benchmark interest rate three times in a row, each time by 25 basis points (bps). In addition, the UK’s Office for National Statistics published the annual Consumer Price Index (CPI) at 6.2 percent, which was much higher than market expectations and prior readings of 5.9 percent and 5.5 percent, respectively. A higher-than-expected report of UK inflation may drive the BOE to raise interest rates again in May.

The US dollar index (DXY) has hit a roadblock after failing to set a new nine-month high and is on the danger of falling below 99.00. The DXY has been pounded at 99.30 due to an increase in risk appetite following the absence of three major Moscow demands: denazification, demilitarization, and legal protection for the Russian language in Ukraine. Meanwhile, the 10-year US Treasury yield is hanging around 2.46 percent ahead of the release of US Nonfarm Payrolls (NFP) on Friday. The early estimate of US NFP at 475K is a considerable decrease from the prior print of 678K.

XAU/USD pair remains bullish as the US currency continues to fall

The gold price is rising as the US currency and US yields fall. The 10-year yield is down almost 2% on the day, while the DXY index, which measures the US dollar against a basket of currencies, is down about 0.3 percent at the time of writing. Russia has promised to pull back military activities near Ukraine’s capital and north, while Kyiv has recommended that Ukraine join the EU while remaining neutral by not joining NATO.

“Talks were fruitful enough for Putin and Zelensky to meet,” said Ukrainian presidential advisor Mykhailo Podolyak. “We have documentation ready today that will allow the presidents to meet bilaterally,” he added. However, overall, movement has been very subdued. This suggests that the Russia-Ukraine conflict is not as priced in as some may have expected, or that markets are not fully buying it. Markets have been up and down in the previous 24 hours. The most important event, however, was the increase in 2Y UST rates to 2.45 percent yesterday, as well as yield curve inversions.

Market investors have pounced on gold (XAU/USD) as safe-haven assets lose attractiveness as peace negotiations between Russia and Ukraine continue. This week, the precious metal fell precipitously after failing to hold above the $1,950.00 level. Despite a response purchase just below $1,900, gold prices have risen to about $1,920.00. The Russian government has ignored the opening step of a ceasefire with Ukraine and has evacuated its soldiers from northern Ukraine and Kyiv. While Ukraine has declared itself neutral and has elected not to join the NATO alliance.

Moscow and Kyiv’s opening move toward a ceasefire plan has lifted market mood. Risky assets are gaining momentum in the midst of a strong risk-on drive. Meanwhile, the US dollar index (DXY) has been subjected to a barrage of selling in safe-haven assets. The DXY is retracing to approximately 98.00, its low from Tuesday, and is expected to continue its losses once the latter is violated. The Federal Reserve (Fed) has a better chance of raising interest rates by 50 basis points (bps) despite weak US JOLTS Job Openings data. The JOLTS Job Opening number was 11.266M, slightly higher than the prior result of 11.263M and the projection of 11M.

The US Dollar Index is testing 4-week lows at 97.70 ahead of data

The greenback has been under pressure this week, trading at multi-week lows of 97.70 when measured by the US Dollar Index (DXY) on Thursday. For the third session in a row, the index loses ground and trades at the 97.70 level, despite a cautious posture in wider risk appetite trends and resumed demand for bonds. On the latter, US yields continue to lose momentum and grind lower from recent peaks, with the US 10y benchmark falling for the third straight day to approximately 2.30 percent (down from around 2.55 percent on Friday).

On the geopolitical front, increased scepticism prevails in reaction to apparent progress in the ongoing Russia-Ukraine peace negotiations in Turkey, which have so far failed to produce any serious follow-up. Initial Claims are due in the US data sector, followed by inflation as defined by the PCE, Personal Income/Spending, and the Chicago PMI.

In addition, J.Williams of the New York Fed (permanent voter, centrist) is scheduled to speak. The index stays on the defensive, retesting the first support zone at 97.70.

GBP/JPY recovers from 160.00 as the BOJ blames rising commodity prices for the yen’s weakness

The GBP/JPY pair has received some considerable offers at 159.50 amid widespread selling in the Japanese yen as a result of the Bank of Japan’s unlimited bond-purchase program me (BOJ). The cross is soaring, having risen over 0.7 percent on Friday from its previous close at the time of publication.

After the completion of the four-day bond-buying spree on Thursday, the aftereffects of the excessive purchase of Japanese Government Bonds (JGBs) to cap yields at 25 basis points appear to be gone. It appears that market players were waiting for the conclusion of JGB distribution from market participants to the BOJ, and that the pullback was just a result of investors capitalizing on a firmer rally.

According to Japan’s Chief Cabinet Secretary Matsuno, the economy is improving, according to the BOJ Tankan survey, although difficulties from the Covid-19 outbreak linger. Furthermore, BOJ officials have stressed growing commodity costs, indicating that Japanese firms have primarily highlighted the impact of rising raw material prices and part shortages on present business circumstances.

Meanwhile, the pound has been supported against the yen by the UK’s GDP’s strong performance (GDP). On Thursday, the quarterly GDP came in at 1.3 percent higher than the market consensus and previous number of 1%.

In Asian markets, the XAU/USD bleeds out, falling below $1,920

The price of gold, XAU/USD, has been under pressure this week due to conflicting mood around the Ukraine issue against anticipation of a rapid-fire response from the Federal Reserve following last week’s Nonfarm Payrolls report.

XAU/USD is down 0.26 percent at the time of writing, having fallen from a high of $1,926.86 to below Friday’s low of $1,918.32. The dollar got off to a strong start on Monday, boosted by a surge in US Treasury rates on anticipation of a series of Fed rate hikes.

Following the release of the NFP report, US 2-year bond rates hit a new all-time high in the North American session, while US 10-year yields also climbed, indicating a drop in investor demand.

After a large upward revision to the February statistics to 750k, non-farm payrolls gained 431k in March. The unemployment rate decreased to 3.6 percent, while average hourly wages rose 0.4 percent month over month, bringing annual growth to 5.6 percent. The report was mixed, with hourly wages for February reduced down to 0.1 percent, indicating that, together with the March number, the pressure on the US labor market may be fading.

Overall, the report has bolstered the Fed’s case for using aggressive rate rises to keep inflation under control. Fed funds futures have a nearly 4/5 likelihood of a 50 basis point rise next month built in.
Despite this, economists at ANZ Bank believe that demand for safe have assets would continue robust because to the ongoing conflict in Ukraine. “Since Russia invaded Ukraine, the disparity between fair value and current gold prices has jumped from zero to USD300/oz, implying a significant risk premium. In addition, the Russia-Ukraine conflict’ indirect effects will give a considerable degree of support. The wider isolation of Russia will result in an inflationary structural change in the energy industry.”

In other markets, speculation about further penalties kept the general tone cautious in early trade, but this, too, bolstered the US dollar. After Ukrainian and European authorities accused Russian soldiers of crimes, Germany’s defense minister suggested on Sunday that the European Union should consider restricting Russian gas supplies. Ukraine has accused Russian soldiers of carrying out a “massacre” in Bucha, which Russia’s defense ministry has denied.

“Haven flows are expected to keep the yellow metal sustained as long as significant progress on ceasefire discussions and de-escalation remains elusive,” analysts at TD Securities said. “At the same time, the 2-year and 10-year curves flirting with inversion has fanned rumours of a coming recession, providing yet another favorable dynamic for gold.”

XAU/USD is expected to drop to about $1,900 as aggressive Fed officials dampen market sentiment

After a massive sell-off on Tuesday, gold (XAU/USD) is struggling in the Asian session. Given the adverse market movement and aggressive tone espoused by Federal Reserve (Fed) policymakers, the precious metal is anticipated to drop to around the psychological support of $1,900.00. In a speech on Tuesday, Fed Governor Lael Brainard stated that the Fed is prepared to act aggressively if inflation data and expectations indicate that such action is warranted. While Fed President Mary Daly has underlined the need for the Fed to reduce its balance sheet as quickly as possible. Furthermore, increased oil costs will not cause a significant downturn in the US economy.

On the other hand, on negative market mood, the US dollar index (DXY) has risen to almost 99.60. Fed members’ hawkish positions suggest that, in the future, rising interest rates will limit liquidity influx throughout the world. The risk-off impulse has been triggered, and the greenback is now climbing higher. Aside from the DXY, increased prospects of a 50 basis point (bps) interest rate hike have injected steroids into US Treasury rates. The 10-year US Treasury rates have surpassed 2.6 percent and are on the verge of setting a new three-year high.

The price of gold fell somewhat as the US currency gained strength. The DXY index, which measures the value of the dollar against a basket of other currencies, reached its highest level in over two years. The benchmark 10-y++3fear Treasury yield has risen to 2.55 percent, while the two-year yield has risen to 2.56 percent for the first time since March 2019.

Spot gold fell 0.3 percent to $1,916 per ounce, but was trading in a tight range, while US gold futures down 0.1 percent to $1,931.20. XAU/USD is down 0.2 percent at $1,921 at the time of writing, pressured in Asia after comments by Federal Reserve Governor Lael Brainard.

In advance of tomorrow’s hawkish minutes, the Fed member mentioned the possibility of forceful action by the central bank. Brainard stated that the Fed might begin lowering its balance sheet as early as May, and that it would do so at a “rapid pace.” Interest rate rises might be more aggressive than the usual 0.25 percentage point increments, according to Brainard. Meanwhile, during the March meeting, Fed policymakers began the process of policy normalisation by raising rates 25 basis points to 0.25 percent -0.50 percent, and the minutes of that meeting will be issued on Wednesday.

“Gold prices have remained remarkably robust, indicating strong ETF and comex inflows into gold trumping withdrawals linked with a hawkish Fed,” according to TD Securities analysts. “Because actual rates may be less effective as a barometer for evaluating gold’s relative price, we look at gold flows to see how long interest in the yellow metal will last.” ETF flows have tended to be more significantly connected with changes in market expectations for Fed hikes than real rates, the yield curve, or even price momentum, according to our study.

Oil falls due to global economic fears, ahead of the EU decision on Russia’s oil ban

Oil prices fell on Monday, along with Asian stock markets, on worries of a worldwide recession reducing oil consumption, with investors eyeing European Union discussions on a Russian oil embargo, which is likely to constrain global supply. By 0153 GMT, Brent crude had fallen 28 cents, or 0.3 percent, to $112.11 per barrel. West Texas Intermediate oil in the United States was trading at $109.36 per barrel, down 41 cents, or 0.4 percent.

“The key reasons that impact the oil price are the broader risk-off mood fueled by recession worries, and China’s lockdowns,” CMC Markets analyst Tina Teng said. Concerns about interest rate rises and lengthy COVID-19 lockdowns in China, which are harming the world’s second largest economy, have also rattled global financial markets.

“China’s continued restrictions may continue to impact on short-term oil prices,” Teng added. Saudi Arabia’s price drop reflected concerns about global oil consumption, she added. On Sunday, Saudi Arabia, the world’s largest oil exporter, reduced crude prices for Asia and Europe for June. Brent and WTI jumped for the second week in a row last week on supply worries after the European Commission suggested a phased restriction on Russian oil as part of its toughest-yet package of measures related to the Ukraine war. The plan requires a vote by all EU members.

However, Bulgaria’s Deputy Prime Minister stated late Sunday that if the proposed embargo is not lifted, the nation will reject EU oil penalties against Russia.”The negotiations will continue tomorrow and maybe on Tuesday, with a meeting of the leaders required to finalise them. Our stance is unequivocal. If certain nations receive a dispensation, we would like to receive one as well “Vassilev told BNT national television.

Bulgaria had previously stated that if such opt-outs were permitted, it would seek an exemption from the planned Russian oil ban, but it was unclear if it was seeking a full exemption or a delay similar to the one suggested on Friday for Hungary, Slovakia, and the Czech Republic. According to Teng, the exclusions “will surely make the punishments less effective.”

US stock sell-off deepens as S&P & NASDAQ falls

The brutal market sell-off resumed on Monday, with all three main indices finishing down starting the week. The S&P 500 fell below 4,000 for the first time since April 2021, while the tech-heavy NASDAQ fell more than 4%. The Cboe Volatility Index, or stock market fear measure, rose to 34.66 on Monday. Stocks fell even as the yield on the 10-year Treasury note fell to around 3.04 percent, down from 3.1 percent on Friday, as investors sought to avoid the carnage in markets.

So far in 2022, there has been nowhere to hide in markets as equities, bonds, and cryptocurrency have all been crushed, and stocks and bonds are seeing a simultaneous correction for the first time in over 50 years. “Investors, in my opinion, have become too gloomy about the future for the US economy and stock market,” experienced stock market bull Edward Yardeni told the Financial Times on Monday. “I can’t remember such stock bearishness in a long time.”

According to Morgan Stanley analysts in a Monday report, retail traders have now lost all of the money they made during the outbreak. Twitter’s shares dropped on Monday. In the absence of Elon Musk’s takeover attempt, the company’s expected price, according to short seller Hindenburg Research, would be 37% lower. According to the experts, Tesla’s CEO has complete control over the sale and might revise his offer.

According to Bloomberg, Goldman Sachs is planning to discontinue working with most SPACs owing to liability concerns and increased regulation in the market. However, if the SEC relaxes its SPAC supervision standards, the investment bank may reconsider. Lumber prices fell to their lowest level of the year on Monday, as the highest mortgage rates in 13 years weighed on home demand.

Overseas, China’s yuan fell to an 18-month low versus the dollar, as Beijing’s Covid restrictions weighed on the economy and US bond rates remained high. Meanwhile, the three most valuable cryptocurrencies by market capitalization – bitcoin, ether, and solana – all fell on Monday.

Global stock markets are falling as inflation and economic concerns remain

In the idle markets, XAU/USD remains protective at $1,800

As global markets battle for clear directions to extend the previous optimism, gold (XAU/USD) prices drop from intraday highs, being range-bound near $1,813-18. During a sluggish Asian session on Wednesday, the precious metal maintained its previous day’s fall from the 200-DMA.

The current Fed speak is more hawkish than previous ones, but reports about the EU’s oil ban on Russian imports, as well as China’s COVID restrictions, put optimists to the test. Despite this, traders remain optimistic due to stronger GDP data from Japan and the Euro zone, buoyant Retail Sales from the US, and the UK’s robust jobs report.

“The Fed should boost rates to 2.25 percent -2.5 percent neutral ranges ‘expeditiously,'” Fed policymaker Evans seems to have weighed on the market’s mood by raising fears of a fast rate hike. Fed Chair Jerome Powell and normally hawkish St Louis Fed President James Bullard argued for a 50 basis point rate hike on Tuesday, putting pressure on the dollar.

In terms of the report, initial Euro zone GDP for Q1 2022 increased past 5.0 percent YoY to 5.1 percent, as well as above 0.2 percent QoQ estimates to 0.3 percent. In April, however, US retail sales increased by 0.9 percent MoM, somewhat higher than the projected 0.7 percent but lower than the upwardly revised 1.4 percent gain (from 0.5 percent). Japan’s preliminary GDP figures for Q1 2022 climbed past -0.4 percent estimates to -0.2 percent QoQ, while Annualized GDP improved to -1.0 percent from -1.8 percent expected.

The Financial Times (FT) reports that China is diverting anti-poverty funds to COVID testing as the crisis worsens, adding to the market’s concerns about the European Commission’s (EC) decision to move away from Russian energy imports. In this environment, US 10-year Treasury rates increased by 0.5 basis points (bps) to 2.988 percent, while S&P 500 Futures struggle to find a clear direction despite Wall Street’s strong advances.

However, if the US Dollar Index, which is currently flat near 103.35, benefits from the latest cautious optimism, gold traders may see additional losses. The greenback gauge could be influenced by second-tier housing figures as well as qualitative factors such as corona virus and geopolitics.

Despite maintaining inside a $5.00 trading range recently, gold prices have maintained the prior day’s retreat from the 200-DMA. XAU/USD may return an annual horizontal support range between $1,790-85, given the bearish MACD signals and the metal’s failure to cross the major moving average, which was around $1,838 by press time.
