gbp-1.jpg

Crucial Week Ahead for USD Traders

usd.jpg

The week ahead is decisive for USD traders as three main events will dominate financial markets – the FOMC Meeting, the Advance GDP, and the Core PCE Price Index.

Last Thursday, the European Central Bank revised its forward guidance on interest rates to reflect the new strategy. It delivered a more dovish forward guidance, but the euro did not react. Summer trading conditions, plus the fear of a wrong positioning ahead of the important US data next week, resulted in tight market ranges.

11.jpg

FOMC Statement and Press Conference to Move the USD

This week it is all about the FOMC Statement and how the Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell delivers the Fed’s message. He will likely reiterate that the tapering of asset purchases, currently running at $120 billion/month, is still far away into the distant future.

But inflation is pressuring the Fed. The sharp rise in inflation, and specifically in house prices, will likely pressure the Fed into sticking to its tapering prospects.

The market expects that the Fed will announce the tapering of its asset purchases in December this year and to effectively start the process in January 2022. A possible rate hike is seen only in December 2023, and so the short to medium-term focus is on tapering.

This coming Wednesday, the market participants will focus on how the Fed sees the Delta variant and the possible impact on the economy.

US Advance GDP

The US economy is expected to have grown by 8.5% in the second quarter. The report, released Thursday, will show the degree of economic reopening and how the fiscal and monetary stimulus has impacted the recovery.

The Fed will likely choose to stay deliberately behind the curve. Yet, there is room to surprise markets by, say, announcing the tapering decision at the August Jackson Hole meeting. The only way the Fed will do that would be for inflation to overshoot the target even more.

Core PCE Price Index

On Friday, the Core PCE Price Index in the United States is expected at 0.6% MoM, but the bias is that we will see a higher print. Given the sharp rise in inflation lately, which is running at rates not seen since four decades ago, the market expects inflation to keep rising. Supply bottlenecks caused by the economic reopening are the cause for the sharp increase in prices.

All in all, the week ahead is critical for the USD traders. Now that the ECB decision is behind, the focus will be on the USD, seen as having more room to gain against the euro and the Swiss franc.

BTC and XRP – Upward move likely ended

btc.jpg

BTC/USD

The price of Bitcoin has been on the rise since the 20th of July when it fell down to $29.316 at its lowest point. From there we have seen an increase of 38.7% as it came up to $40,679 at its highest point yesterday. Today the price fell down to $36,500 area and is now moving to the upside again, but the downfall of 10% might be indicative of the completion of the prior upward movement.

btcusd-1h-2.png

You can see that the price almost reached its most significant resistance zone at around $41,000 but failed to make interaction. The upward move from the 20th of July was impulsive in sections but the wave structure doesn’t imply a five-wave pattern. Instead, we could be looking at an ABC correction to the upside before the next downward move. The upward movement looks completed either way so now at least a retracement would be expected if not a start of a new downtrend.

eurusd-chart-3.png

The pair is now finding bids near the 1.1810 support zone. The next key support is near the 1.1805 level. It is near the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent wave from the 1.1770 swing low to 1.1841 high.

Any more losses might call for a move towards the 1.1780 support. Any more losses might lead EUR/USD towards the 1.1750 support zone. On the upside, an initial resistance is near the 1.1830 level.

Bitcoin May Reach ATH

btc_usd.png

On July 27, Reuters released a rebuttal from an Amazon spokesman regarding the company’s plans to implement Bitcoin.

“Notwithstanding our interest in the space, the speculation that has ensued around our specific plans for cryptocurrencies is not true,” the source said.

On the backdrop of this new turn, the Bitcoin rate fell, but what is important, it didn’t fall lower than the July 26 level, when London’s City AM newspaper cited an unnamed insider saying Amazon had intentions to accept Bitcoin payments until the end of the year.

The fact that the official clarification did not bring the price back to the starting point suggests a bullish market sentiment.

Mike McGlone, Bloomberg’s Intelligence senior commodity strategist, is of the opinion that BTC quotes are more likely to return to the $60,000 mark than fall to $20,000.

btcusd-1.png

The price of Bitcoin fluctuates around the psychological level of $40k. The level of $36k — the base of the July 26 large-volume candlestick — is important. As long as the bulls keep the price above this level, the situation looks encouraging.

LTC and EOS – Corrective movement seen

ltc.jpg

LTC/USD

The price of Litecoin has been on the rise from the 20th of July when it fell to $104 at its lowest point. From there we have seen an increase of 35.9% measured to its highest point today at $141.83. This last rise was made after a sharp impulsive decline in a slowly moving manner and even though it is still moving to the downside it barely made it past Monday’s high.

ltcusd-1h-3.png

These two signs – slowly moving price after a sharp decline and failure to make a significantly higher high are considered signs of weakness which is why soon a move to the downside would be expected. From the 20th of July have likely seen the completion of the five-wave impulse to Monday’s high. If this is true, then from Monday we have seen the start of the descending move with the rise from Tuesday being its 2nd sub-wave.

This can be a minor three-wave flat correction with the price continuing its upward trajectory after as it made a slightly higher high compared to Monday’s one.  Another possibility could be that this descending move is going to be larger but there aren’t still signs on how it can play out.

Considering the fact that this move is counted as corrective this structure can be labeled as the A wave from the higher degree ABC count.

The US Economic Growth Exceeds Expectations

fed.jpg

The new trading month started with the market participants focusing on Friday’s NFP report. Because the Federal Reserve of the United States has a dual mandate, one that focuses on both price stability and job creation, the way the labor market performs is viewed as decisive for the future path of monetary policy.

While inflation has reached the Fed’s target, there is still a lot of room for improvement in the labor market. Fed’s definition of full employment leaves room for more strength before the rates could be lifted.

In the middle of last week, the Fed signaled that it is in no rush to lift the rates. Most likely, it remains intentionally behind the curve, wanting to see more strength in the labor market before acting.

But inflation and economic growth may trigger action from the Fed sooner than the market expects. We’ve seen the Gross Domestic Product released last week coming out much stronger than the expectations.

piie-charts.jpg

US GDP Grows Much Faster Than Forecasters Expected

The chart above shows a projection for the US GDP made by various institutions in the last quarter of 2020. All of them, including the FOMC, IMF, and OECD, have underestimated the growth of the US economy.

As it turned out, the actual growth path out of the economic recession is much steeper, with positive spillover effects for the main US trade partners. Because the United States is the largest economy in the world, a stronger economic recovery there is enough to add one percentage point or more to global growth.

Before the passage of the America Rescue plan, most forecasters expected that the economy would grow by 3/4%-4.2% in the four quarters of 2021. But the data released last week shows that the economy grows at an annualized rate of 6.4%, much higher than expected.

The solid growth should support the equity markets and keep the US dollar offered. Because most central banks in the developed world have adopted similar monetary policies, which are still loose, the market is dominated by risk-on/risk-off gyrations. Until we see central banks lifting rates, the chances are that the markets will remain correlated.

Google Green-lights Crypto Ads

google-crypto-ads.jpg

On August 3, Google rolled out its new policy, allowing advertisers to officially offer their cryptocurrency and wallet exchange services online.

The latest set of rules is quite tough. To weed out shadow advertising and crypto fraud, Google requires advertisers to register with the Financial Crime Enforcement Network (FinCEN). ICOs, banned from advertising back in 2018, are still a no-go.

Thanks to this step, the corporation is expected to boost its revenue in the developing sector of digital currencies.

Meanwhile, Ethereum masterminds have begun a countdown to the Thursday launch of the London update on their website. The update will affect how the network handles transaction fees.

Ahead of the update, ETHUSD is showing more positive dynamics compared to BTCUSD.

btcusd.png

On July 31, the BTCUSD market had very small trading volumes (see fig. 1) around the 42k level, and the next day, the price showed bearish dynamics with growing volumes. This indicates a weak demand for the coin at a price of 42k and the dominance of supply. The current decline can be stopped by the level of 36k (or something close to it), where, on July 26, the bitcoin price was growing aggressively under pressure from buyers.

GBP/USD and EUR/GBP Target Additional Losses

GBPUSD-Cable.jpg

GBP/USD started a steady decline from the 1.4000 resistance zone. EUR/GBP also declined and it broke the key 0.8500 support zone.

Important Takeaways for GBP/USD and EUR/GBP

  • The British Pound failed to surpass the 1.4000 resistance zone and started a fresh decline.
  • There is a major bearish trend line forming with resistance near 1.3915 on the hourly chart of GBP/USD.
  • EUR/GBP started a fresh decline from well above the 0.8550 pivot level.
  • There is a key bearish trend line forming with resistance near 0.8500 on the hourly chart.

GBP/USD Technical Analysis

gbpusd-chart-1.png

The British Pound made many attempts to clear the 1.3400 resistance level against the US Dollar, but it failed. As a result, the GBP/USD pair started a steady decline below the 1.3950 level.

The pair even broke the 1.3920 support level and it settled below the 50 hourly simple moving average. Finally, there was a break below the 1.3900 support and the pair traded as low as 1.3855 on FXOpen.

It is now consolidating losses above the 1.3850 support. An immediate resistance on the upside is near the 1.3875 level. The 23.6% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the 1.3948 swing high to 1.3855 low is also near the 1.3875 level.

The first major resistance is now forming near the 1.3900 zone and 50 hourly simple moving average. It is close to the 50% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the 1.3948 swing high to 1.3855 low.

Moreover, there is a major bearish trend line forming with resistance near 1.3915 on the hourly chart of GBP/USD. Therefore, a proper break above the 1.3900 resistance and the trend line could open the doors for a steady increase.

An immediate support on the downside is near the 1.3850 level. A downside break below the 1.3850 level might call for more losses. The next major support is near the 1.3800 level. Any more losses could lead the pair towards the 1.3740 level in the near term.

Solid Jobs Report Sends the US Dollar Higher

job-openings.jpg

The US dollar reversed the recent losses and closed the last week higher. Responsible for the move was the July NFP report.

The market expected a positive report, but the outcome exceeded expectations. The US economy added over 940k new jobs in July. Moreover, the data for the previous month was revised higher by over 100k jobs.

All the elements in the report pointed to a strong recovery of the US economy. Besides the better headline number, the Unemployment Rate declined to 5.4% – another positive development.

Sure enough, the US economy still needs to recover about 5 million jobs lost during the pandemic. But solid reports like the one from last Friday bring the Fed closer to fulfill its employment mandate, and thus the tightening of the financial conditions may be just around the corner.

The Fed, as a central bank, has a dual mandate. It aims at price stability and maximum employment.

The price stability mandate is monitored by the changes in inflation. Inflation is already above Fed’s target, even though it is unclear how long is the period the Fed looks at averaging inflation to 2%.

What remains is improvements in the labor market – and the July NFP report shows such improvements. The bias is now that the Fed will announce the tapering of its asset purchases sooner than expected, and so the US dollar ticked higher on the news.

usd-gold.jpg

The Technical Picture Also Favors a Stronger Dollar

From a technical analysis perspective, the US dollar may be at the end of a cycle. The Dollar index formed a double top at the 100 level, but it recently found both horizontal and dynamic support in the 90 area.

A quick look at the rising trend reveals the fact that the Dollar index has kept the series of higher lows intact, just like it is supposed to do in a rising trend. Hence, as long as the index holds above 89, the bias remains bullish.

Moving forward, traders will look for clues about what the Fed will do next. Is the July NFP report strong enough to trigger earlier tapering? If yes, the US dollar’s rally should continue unabated.

EUR/USD Could Recover, USD/JPY Gains Momentum

euro-3.jpg

EUR/USD started a major decline and it traded below 1.1750. USD/JPY is rising and it even broke the 110.50 resistance zone.

Important Takeaways for EUR/USD and USD/JPY

  • The Euro started a major decline below the 1.1800 and 1.1780 levels.
  • There is a key bearish trend line forming with resistance near 1.1725 on the hourly chart of EUR/USD.
  • USD/JPY started a fresh increase above the main 110.00 resistance zone.
  • There is a major bullish trend line forming with support near 110.50 on the hourly chart.

EUR/USD Technical Analysis

After a failed attempt to clear 1.1850, the Euro started a major decline against the US Dollar. The EUR/USD pair broke the 1.1800 support zone to move into a bearish zone.

The pair settled below the 1.1800 level and the 50 hourly simple moving average. It even broke the 1.1750 support level and traded as low as 1.1709 on FXOpen. It is now consolidating gains above the 1.1700 support zone.

eurusd-chart-1.png

An immediate resistance is near the 1.1725 level. There is also a key bearish trend line forming with resistance near 1.1725 on the hourly chart of EUR/USD.
