AUD/USD: the instrument expects positive signals

The Australian currency is showing an ambiguous trend, testing the 0.6960 mark. After the active growth of the last two sessions, the asset expects the release of July statistics on the employment market of the United States.

The day before, officials of the RBA and the UK regulator decided to raise base rates by 50 points, but such a move could not provide the expected support for their currencies. Market participants fear that this is a direct sign of the onset of a recession in the near future, and the "hawkish" policy of tightening monetary parameters does not show effectiveness in combating inflation. Slight support for the AUD/USD pair was provided against the background of the publication of positive macroeconomic statistics in Australia. Thus, the AiG services sector in July significantly strengthened to 51.7 points from the previous 48.8 points, which exceeded the average expectations of economists.

  • Resistance levels: 0.7000, 0.7050, 0.7100, 0.7150.
  • Support levels: 0.6950, 0.6900, 0.6849, 0.6800.

USD/CAD: "American" shows positive dynamics

The US currency returned a positive trend within the framework of the "bullish" momentum received the day before, despite the release of ambiguous data in the US. Thus, the total volume of applications for registration of the status of unemployed for the last 7 days on July 29 strengthened to 260.0 thousand against the previous indicator of 254.0 thousand, not justifying the forecasts of experts by 1.0 thousand applications. The volume of secondary applications for the same period on July 22 increased to 1.416 million from the previous 1.368 million, which exceeded market expectations of 1.37 million applications.

  • Resistance levels: 1.2900, 1.2950, 1.3000, 1.3050.
  • Support levels: 1.2850, 1.2800, 1.2750, 1.2700.

Gold Prices

Quotations of the precious metal are trading with steady growth, having successfully updated the local maximum of July 5. The asset is again striving to break through the resistance level of 1800.00, gaining support against the background of the onset of a recession on a global economic scale in the medium term. Panic has grown due to the results of the meeting of officials of the Bank of England, in which the participants of the meeting for the first time since 1995 to raise the interest rate by 0.50%, but the published cover letter contains disappointing expectations that may befall the British economy next year. Already in Q4, the economy of England is threatened with the onset of recession, and the result of 2023 will be a drawdown of national GDP to the level of 1.5%. The instrument received support due to the growing geopolitical tension in Taiwan. Official Beijing failed to cancel the working visit of US official Nancy Pelosi with warnings and threats, instead large-scale four-day military exercises were announced, which could affect the prospect of restoring supplies along logistics chains after the end of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Oil Market Overview

During the Asian trading session, the price of WTI grade oil shows moderate growth, recovering losses incurred recently, which allowed updating the local indicator from the first numbers in February.

The instrument receives positive growth signals against the background of the OPEC+ decision to increase the level of production of "black gold" by 100 thousand barrels in daily terms. So, despite the pressure of officials from the United States, the cartel decided to refrain from the rapid pace of increasing production, wanting to maintain a balance in the world market. The negative dynamics in the asset is due to a sharp increase in reserves of raw materials in the United States. As follows from the published report of the EIA (Energy Information Administration of the US Department of Energy), as of July 29, the volume strengthened by 4.467 million. barrels, having previously shown a decrease of 4,523 in the previous period, contrary to analysts' expectations of a drop of 0.629 million barrels. The negative dynamics around the "black gold" are created by the prospects of falling demand in the long term due to the high probability of a recession on a global scale.

  • Resistance levels: 90.00, 91.64, 93.97, 96.00.
  • Support levels: 86.95, 85.00, 83.00, 81.00.

AUD/USD, currency, USD/JPY, currency, NZD/USD, currency, Gold, mineral, Analytical Forex forecast for today, August 11, for USDJPY, AUDUSD, NZDUSD & Gold USD/JPY: "American" develops positive dynamicsThe US currency is trying to win back losses. According to economists, on the eve of the dollar was trading actively falling, indicating the reason for the dominance of "bears" in the publication of macroeconomic data in the United States on inflation, which showed a slowdown from the previous indicator of 9.1% to 8.5% in July, which exceeded market expectations. Thanks to the positive data, market participants revised forecasts for further steps of correction of the key indicator by the US regulator in favor of a decrease in growth rates at a meeting in September. Previously, it was expected that the US Federal Reserve would raise the percentage by 0.75%, but in the present, experts admit a revision at 0.50%, which will help the world's first economy to neutralize the processes of recession.Resistance levels: 133.00, 134.00, 134.54, 135.57.Support levels: 132.00, 131.00, 130.00, 129.39.AUD/USD: The pair is trading in a bullish trendThe Australian currency is trading in a negative zone, moving away from its local maximum on June 10, reached earlier.The Australian dollar is under moderate pressure amid the release of statistics, according to inflation forecasts. The data published at the University of Melbourne for August were revised in favor of a decrease to 5.9% from the previous 6.3%, which gives reason to hope for a reduction in the tough position of the regulator on the issue of further interest rate increases in favor of a softer one. Meanwhile, the RBA announced the launch of a project with the help of which testing will be carried out to integrate the digital version of cash (CBDC). The Ministry confirmed the involvement of experts from DFCRC (Corporate Research Center for Digital Finance), together with whom a practical approach to the use of a crypto tool and the use of its economic benefits, taking into account technological, legal and regulatory nuances, will be studied throughout the year. According to the statement of the head of the regulator Michel Bullock, the success of the project will enable entrepreneurs to implement their projects with the help of innovative technologies. The results of testing are announced for August next year.Resistance levels: 0.7107, 0.7150, 0.7202, 0.7250.Support levels: 0.7050, 0.7000, 0.6950, 0.6900.NZD/USD: the instrument is held at the local maximumDuring morning trading, the NZD/USD asset is testing the 0.6400 mark, being at the local maximum on June 10, reached earlier.The New Zealand data released today did not provide the expected support for the instrument. Economists note an increase in the number of tourists visiting the country in June by 83.5%, contrary to analysts' expectations of a growth of 14.8%. Local easing of epidemiological measures makes it possible to hope that the economic tourism sector will become a driver of the flow of additional funds to the national budget, which was not the case last year due to strict quarantine restrictions.Resistance levels: 0.6400, 0.6433, 0.6500, 0.6535.Support levels: 0.6350, 0.6300, 0.6200, 0.6146.Gold PricesThe cost of the bank metal shows negative dynamics, moving away from the local maximum on July 5, updated earlier.The asset retreated again from the threshold of fundamental resistance at the level of 1800.00. The strengthening of the instrument during Wednesday's trading session showed very limited potential, despite the weakening US dollar due to the release of statistics on consumer prices in the US. Thus, according to data for July, inflation left record levels, previously updated 9.1% to 8.5%, which exceeded market expectations. This gave investors an incentive to revise the forecasts made the day before on the pace of interest rate hikes from the US Federal Reserve during the summit in September. Now economists agree that the basic indicator will be increased by only 0.50%. However, gold will remain under pressure in any outcome because the officials of the department – Neil Kashkar and Charles Evans actively advocate the continuation of "hawkish" methods in the process of tightening monetary policy in the future.

Analysts note that key publications on inflation in the US, China and Germany for July will be released on Wednesday. According to preliminary estimates, economists expect a decrease in the growth rate of consumer prices in the United States to 8.7% from the previous level of 9.1%, giving the regulator the opportunity to raise the interest rate by 0.75% during the September meeting. Regarding Germany, the forecasts remain neutral, since analysts do not see any reasons for strong changes in the inflation rate from the previous 0.9% monthly and 7.5% for the year. But the PRC has risks of showing an increase in inflation to 0.5% from the previous 0.0% on a monthly basis and to 2.9% from 2.5% for the year.Resistance levels: 1.0200, 1.0253, 1.0300, 1.0350.Support levels: 1.0150, 1.0100, 1.0050, 1.0000.USD/CHF: the market expects consumer price statistics from the USADuring the trading of the Asia-Pacific countries, the USD/CHF instrument is testing the 0.9550 mark, waiting for additional signals of further growth.The Swiss franc has received restrained support thanks to national macroeconomic statistics. Thus, the published indicators on the eve showed zero dynamics of changes in unemployment, which now stands at 2.2%, which remains a strong indicator for the country. For the Swiss Central Bank, the reason for tightening monetary policy continues to be rising inflation, which has successfully consolidated above the threshold of 3.0%, which does not prevent investors from now putting into the value of the franc probable increases in basis points within the framework of the announced meeting of the regulator on September 22. It is expected that then the US Federal Reserve will tighten monetary policy.Resistance levels: 0.9650, 0.9700, 0.9762, 0.9847.Support levels: 0.9520, 0.9469, 0.9400, 0.9300.GBP/USD: the dollar started the week with a correctionThe British currency shows mixed dynamics, being at the level of 1.2080.

Representatives of Royal Mail associate such indicators with the active use of transport for movement within the country and the intention of customers to transfer their savings into cash for more detailed planning of their travel budgets within the current difficult situation in the national economy. This year, more than 68% of Britons who took a vacation spoke in favor of the need to keep fiat money in their hands. But economists note that this trend is temporary, because there is an irreversible process of popularization of digital tools both in the matter of investment and when paying for goods and services.Resistance levels: 1.2133, 1.2236, 1.2292, 1.2400.Support levels: 1.2054, 1.2000, 1.1933, 1.1854.Gold PricesQuotes of the precious metal are trading with multidirectional dynamics in the session on Tuesday, trying to overcome the solid resistance level of 1800.00.Earlier, the asset made attempts to cross this psychological level, enlisting the support of corrective sentiment against the US dollar.

The key expectations of economists are inclined in favor of the retreat of inflation from record thresholds, thereby justifying the policy of the "hawks" from the US Federal Reserve. Under favorable circumstances of the macroeconomic background, the "American" will significantly strengthen its position, and investors can focus their attention around the risks of a recession in the United States. Economists note that the reduction in consumer price pressure will signal the US regulator to continue the course of tightening monetary policy.Resistance levels: 1775.00, 1784.31, 1800.00, 1816.62.Support levels: 1752.87, 1730.00, 1720.00, 1700.00.

At the time of writing, the tool is testing the 0.7000 level.The economic situation in Australia has all the signs of the same scenario, but the flexible policy of the national regulator, which combines tightening monetary strategy and continuing to buy government bonds on the market, has the prospect of success in the fight against inflation. Thus, the report released on the eve confirms that in June the volume of retail sales did not meet market expectations, showing an increase of only 0.2%, with forecasts of 0.5%, due to the situation with households that faced pressure due to rising consumer prices for goods and services. The export price index for Q2 reached 10.1%, which is inferior to the previous level of 14.6%, and the position of the producer index strengthened by 1.4% against Q1, while the annual figure was 5.6%.Support levels: 0.6870, 0.6682.Resistance levels: 0.7052, 0.7282.EUR/USD: investors continue to study US GDP dataThe EUR/USD trading instrument is trading in correction at 1.0217.The main stimulus for growth in the future may be indicators from France, which reflect the strengthening of gross domestic product for Q2 by 0.5% against the decline in the first quarter by 0.2%. Economists note that the economic situation in the current situation is delaying the onset of a recession. The data showed an increase in spending in the consumer basket of ordinary people by 0.2%, contrary to forecasts of a fall of 0.6%.

The key reason for the downward correction is the growing cost of living, in particular, the rise in prices of food and services.If you pay attention to the main driver of the strengthening of the instrument – the US dollar, which, contrary to yesterday's statistics on GDP, which lost 0.9% in Q2, continues to hold the lead in the USD/TRY pair. The prospects of the instrument for the medium term do not portend significant changes against the background of the vulnerability of the economic situation in Turkey, which will keep the national currency in low positions, much inferior to the strengthened US dollar. If the "American" begins to lose its position, then the asset is able to show a correction, the prerequisite for which may be negative data on the US employment market, which has already recorded an increase in the level of requests for benefits for the unemployed in recent weeks from 243.00 thousand to 249.25 thousand in the present.Support levels: 17.4300, 16.4900.Resistance levels: 18.2500, 19.0000.GBP/USD: long-term dynamics will remain downwardThe published data, which disappointed economists the day before in the US, caused the sale of the US currency, which allowed the GBP/USD instrument to start an upward trend and reach the 1.2210 mark.In the UK, key macroeconomic statistics were not expected during the current week, except for the release of data on the industrial orders index for July according to the CBI (Confederation of British Industrialists) – the indicator's positions sank to 8.0 points, contrary to forecasts of an increase to 13.0 points, against the recorded indicator in the past at around 18.0 points. The value of indicators does not take a key importance, because investors have focused their attention more on data from the United States.Resistance levels: 1.2180, 1.2385.Support levels: 1.1950, 1.1768.
