EURUSD: low gas prices are strengthening the euro

The EURUSD trading instrument is trading at the price level of 1.0645.

Positive correction has consolidated the initiative because of the decrease in the quotations of "blue" fuel on the stock markets. Thus, the end of the previous week's final data from the Dutch gas hub TTF displayed a break down of the price threshold of USD 1.0 thousand per thousand cubic meters, renewing the figure of early 2022, and the price threshold of supply deals for February was 930.00, renewing the January level, before the Russian military invasion of Ukraine. Blue fuel quotes are influenced by several factors: first of all - weather conditions, as there are no hard frosts in Europe and the agreement between the alliance member states to introduce the wholesale price cap on the resource at EUR 180.00 per megawatt-hour, in case of three-day costs above this mark, starting from February 15. Now the euro zone countries have the opportunity to fill up the reserves to the limit and sign contracts for the long term to 2023, in addition, there is room to reorient the gas systems to the injection of liquefied natural gas (LNG). For example, the day before Germany announced the launch of its first floating LNG terminal, two more are planned, and the daily supply volume was 10.0 million cubic meters, which is 16 times lower than the Nord Stream GTS.

  • Resistance levels: 1.0720, 1.0930.
  • Support levels: 1.0570, 1.0390.

AUDUSD: rising commodity prices support the pair.

"Bears" failed to overcome the support threshold of 0.6670 and the AUDUSD instrument turned to the upward dynamics, renewing the December high at 0.6900. The Australian currency was stimulated by the weakened US dollar, which was under the pressure of the risk of recession in the national economy in the next year due to the regular tightening of monetary parameters by the US Federal Reserve System to overcome the growth in consumer prices.

Additional stimulus for the Australian currency was received amid growing commodity prices and a bearish trend among precious metals. So, over the past few trading weeks crude oil WTI has gained 10.5% in price, and gold strengthened at a lower rate, but over the past month the asset has improved by 2.5%, leaving the advantage to the "bulls".

  • Resistance levels are at 0.6900 and 0.7000.
  • Support levels: 0.6670, 0.6585 and 0.6500.

Oil market analysis

The price of benchmark Brent crude oil managed to correct slightly above the resistance level of 85.00, where it is being held due to risks of resource deficit in the markets in case Russia cuts off supplies to the EU, G7 and Australia, after it keeps the upper limit of 60.00.

Russian Deputy Prime Minister Alexander Novak said that by the end of this year, a mechanism will be developed and put into effect to prohibit Russian legal entities from supplying oil at the established price cap. Moreover, the political leadership of Moscow agrees to reduce production capacity in 2023 by 500,000-700,000 barrels per day, or 5-7% of the current level. Earlier, the Russian government had already said that the Russian Federation intends to enter into new crude supply contracts, giving priority to eastern markets, making logistical adjustments that will serve to gradually restore demand for the energy carrier.

  • Support levels: 82.40, 76.70.
  • Resistance levels: 87.10, 92.00.

Cryptocurrency market analysis

At the end of the previous week, BTC stabilized at the level of 16800.00, at which it is now.

Analysts are trying to foresee the prospects of the first cryptocurrency and the market in general for the next year, but estimates are different, as the wing of optimists believe that quotes have found the "bottom" and will be able to return the upward dynamics, and the wing of skeptics forecasts the continuation of the current price level or the strengthening of negative trends. Thus, experts from JPMorgan Chase & Co. argue that the fall of the FTX exchange deprived electronic assets of attractiveness for a long period and the prospects of the market segment have become uncertain. Moreover, the existing precedent will lead to a strengthening of control by the world regulators over the digital industry. Already in the present the largest crypto-exchange Binance came under pressure from the audit bodies in the U.S., where an investigation was initiated into the legality of services, in addition, the French authorities accuse the management team of the site of misleading advertising campaign. Most likely, the level of pressure on exchanges and their clients will only increase throughout 2023, leading key tokens to the fall.

  • Resistance levels: 17100.00, 17830.00, 18750.00.
  • Support levels: 16250.00, 15700.00, 15000.00.

Forex analytical forecast for EURUSD, USDJPY, AUDUSD and silver for Thursday, March 23
AUD/USD, currency, EUR/USD, currency, USD/JPY, currency, Silver, mineral, Forex analytical forecast for EURUSD, USDJPY, AUDUSD and silver for Thursday, March 23 EURUSD: the pair is correcting in the ascending range of 1.0570-1.1200The lack of announcements on the financial calendar allows the pair EUR/USD to quote in a corrective trend around 1.0894.The market participants focused their attention around the comments of the European Central Bank management, which said that the most part of the monetary parameters correction is already passed, since the agency has already increased the interest rate by 350.0 percentage points since the summer of 2022. Christine Lagarde also said that high inflation and contradictory forecasts for its further dynamics will not affect "hawkish" mood among officials of the authority, despite declining economic growth and the likelihood of banking crisis in the region. Head of the ECB expressed confidence that the EU has sufficient economic strength, therefore over time will be able to reduce the consumer price index to the target of 2.0% and there is no reason for public panic. Recall that the day before the ECB had raised the interest rate by 0.50% and refrained from predicting any further action on monetary parameters.Resistance levels: 1.0940 and 1.1031.Support levels: 1.0790, 1.0570.USDJPY: The US dollar has resumed its declineThe trading instrument USDJPY is showing an active decline, reinforcing the dominance of the "bears", who had intercepted the initiative earlier. The asset trades at 130.50 in a decline in price, having updated the local minimum for February 10.The American currency continues to be under the impact of the negative factors against the background of the USA Federal Reserve System decisions to increase the interest rate by 0,25%, to the target value of 5.00%. Some experts expected to see more decisive results from the hawks and harsh comments from the head of the agency, but the official shared comments avoiding specific forecasts. Against this background, the assurances of officials at the Treasury Department and the U.S. Federal Reserve about full control of the stability of the banking sector have extremely low credibility with investors. The flow of moderate account closing and the outflow of liquidity from deposits at credit institutions across the regions continues because of depositors' fears of losing their funds.Resistance levels: 131.00, 132.00, 133.00, 134.00.Support levels: 130.00, 129.39, 128.62, 128.00.AUDUSD: The "Aussie" is testing the March highs on an upside breakoutThe AUDUSD trading instrument is showing active strengthening and is vigorously testing the 0.6740 mark, intending to consolidate positions at the local March 6 high reached earlier in reaction to the Fed's monetary parameters decision.According to preliminary forecasts, the agency raised the interest rate by 0.25% bringing the target to 5.00% and the highest since 2007. At the same time, investors have not received any forecasts from the head of the Fed on the next steps in 2023, and expert estimates of the value at the end of this year remain at the same level of 5.10%. The accompanying explanation of the officials indicates that the regulator is ready to make an additional correction of the key value in case of a separate need. The U.S. dollar came under immediate pressure on the Fed's final statements, but by the end of afternoon trading the instrument managed to win back its losses.Resistance levels: 0.6750, 0.6800, 0.6853 and 0.6900.Support levels: 0.6700, 0.6650, 0.6600, 0.6563.Silver analyticsHolders of the U.S. currency suffered losses amid the rhetoric of U.S. Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell, as the major competitors of the "American" strengthened considerably, including silver, reaching the 23.00 mark.The Fed forecasted the Fed to raise the interest rate by 0.25% to 5.00%, marking a new high from 2007. Investors saw no concrete plans in Jerome Powell's statements for further correction steps through the end of this year, and the median expectation for the value through 2023 is held at 5.10% and through 2024 at 4.30%, strengthening from 4.10% for December. The termination of Signature Bank and Silicon Valley Bank, as well as the cumulative problems in the banking sector by region, was the impetus for the U.S. Federal Reserve to refuse to raise the interest rate by 0.50% in the short term. Meanwhile, investors in the precious metals market decided to make the most of it and increased demand for safe-haven assets, which increased the value, including that of silver.Resistance levels: 23.00, 24.50, 26.00.Support levels: 21.50, 20.00, 18.00.

Thus, the current economic environment in Germany according to the ZEW index for March was -46.5 points, which is lower than the previous 45.1 points. The value of the economic sentiment declined from 28.1 points to 13.0 points. Such figures were an "anchor" for similar indicators of all countries in the euro area, which reached 10.0 points from 29.7 points. Analysts call the crisis in the banking sector the main reason for the correction.Resistance levels: 1.0820, 1.0950.Support levels: 1.0680, 1.0520.GBPUSD: correctional impulse developmentGBPUSD is showing a mixed trend being around 1.2230 being under the pressure of the "bullish" impulse which came earlier, when the asset rebounded from the local high of February 2.Investors are waiting for the publication of the statistics on consumer prices for February in the UK. Market expectations envisage decline of the value dynamics to 9.8% from 10.1% in the annual index, and the monthly index may show the growth of 0.6%, having earlier decreased by the similar indicator for January, at that the position of the core inflation indicator may remain at the level of 5.8%. In addition, economists want to assess retail price data; February's forecast is that the value may show an increase for the month to 0.6% from 0.0%, and for the year a slight correction to 13.2% from 13.4%.The kingdom's regulator was positive about Swiss authorities' support for the merger of two large-scale credit reproducers, Credit Suisse Group AG and UBS Group AG, the former of which faced the threat of closure amid insufficient liquidity due to massive outflows of funds from its accounts. According to comments from officials in the government, Credit Suisse Group AG's U.K. branch employs about 5,000 full-time workers, and the institution itself holds the largest number of employees in the investment sector in the City of London.Resistance levels: 1.2236, 1.2283, 1.2350, 1.2400.Support levels: 1.2176, 1.2140, 1.2100, 1.2054.USDCHF: Saudi National Bank is reviewing its investment in Credit Suisse GroupThe USDCHF trade instrument showed corrective moods in the morning session, completing the negative dynamics of the previous day due to weak activity on the market, where investors are waiting for the outcome of the US Federal Reserve's meeting on monetary issues.A summit of Swiss National Bank officials on interest rates is due tomorrow, March 23. The preliminary forecast of the analysts is unambiguous - the indicator will remain at the same level of 1.0%, taking into account a rather low value of the national inflation. Experts discuss the merger of banking conglomerates UBS Group AG and Credit Suisse Group AG, which is estimated at 3.0 billion francs. The takeover is scheduled to be completed by the end of this year, as the process will bypass protocol approval from the institutions' shareholders, but the government has committed 9.0 billion francs to cover possible costs. Meanwhile, the largest investor for Credit Suisse Group AG, Saudi National Bank has lost 80.0% of its value since buying a 9.9% block of securities worth 1.4 billion francs last fall.Resistance levels are 0.9258, 0.9300, 0.9350 and 0.9400.Support levels: 0.9200, 0.9150, 0.9100, 0.9070.Gold analyticsThe precious metal is correcting at 1940.00 amid significant declines of the last two sessions in a row, which allowed the asset to retreat from the record high of April 2022 and the fundamental resistance threshold of 2000.00.Gold positions were pressured by rising yields on U.S. Treasury securities, which was only intensified by massive profit taking on long contracts ahead of the Fed officials' meeting on monetary policy. Preliminary estimates of analysts foresee the strengthening of the interest rate by no more than 0.25%, not ruling out that the agency may announce a temporary pause at all, refusing to tighten monetary parameters in the short term. The latter move may be taken wishing to deprive the growing crisis in the financial sector of further momentum, but investors will not accept such a decision. Still about 82% of economists agree that the regulator will increase the price threshold of borrowing by 0.25% and refrain from forecasting a further correction at the May meeting.Resistance levels: 1952.53, 1974.22, 2000.00, 2015.30.Support levels: 1930.00, 1914.44, 1900.00, 1878.84.

According to the official, the dynamics of inflation shows sufficient potential to stay high for a long time, and the key indicator is one of the key mechanisms for the stability of the situation. According to the forecast of experts of the Goldman Sachs Group Inc. banking institution, the gross domestic product of the EU will reach only 0.7%, while the previous estimate was 1.0%. The banking crisis that has the potential to affect the financial sector of the euro zone will be able to loosen the hawks' grip on the issue of monetary parameters correction, which will result in increasing the interest rate at the end of the next meeting of the regulatory agency officials only by 0.25% that will help avoid aggravation of the economic situation in the region. A 0.1% fall in inflation in February to 8.5% for the year due to lower energy prices to 13.7% from the previous 18.9% will contribute to strengthening the rhetoric of the "doves". ECB management reminded that officials are aware of the risks and are busy keeping a close eye on developments to apply preventive measures if necessary.Resistance levels: 1.0758, 1.0800, 1.0850, 1.0900.Support levels: 1.0700, 1.0640, 1.0600, 1.0550.NZDUSD: The "bears" have high chances to develop the potentialNZDUSD is moving steadily declining, revealing the potential of the "bears", which got the upper hand earlier, when the asset tested the local high of February 16.The block of macroeconomic statistics published the day before in New Zealand was unable to provide significant changes in the dynamics of the currency pair. Thus, exports in February slowed down to $5.23bn from $5.30bn, imports - to $5.95bn from $7.42bn. Thus, the level of the deficit in the trade balance for February remained at the previous levels of -$15.64 billion. Meanwhile, credit card spending for February unexpectedly gained 25.6% from January's strengthening of 17.9%, contrary to analysts' estimates of a decline to 9.4%.Resistance levels: 0.6250, 0.6300, 0.6350 and 0.6400.Support levels: 0.6200, 0.6155, 0.6100, 0.6049.AUDUSD: The RBA has assessed the willingness to raise the interest rate going forwardA weaker U.S. dollar allows the AUDUSD to test the 0.6690 level.Investors are studying the published reports on monetary issues, including the final minutes of the last meeting of the RBA officials, which have already noted that the agreement on the interest rate adjustment by 0.25% was reached before the meeting. According to the regulator, the national inflation dynamic is at its peak, but the demand for new home loans has collapsed and the construction market is showing enough negative signals for economists as rising prices and high mortgage rates continue to put pressure on the construction industry. The department agrees that subdued inflation will be able to provide an incentive to free up money supply from consumers to invest in the real estate sector even with the current mortgage situation. Based on the agreed arguments, the Reserve Bank of Australia will continue to tighten monetary policy going forward.Resistance levels: 0.6770, 0.6980.Support levels: 0.6610, 0.6390.Oil market analysisIn the morning session the price of WTI oil showed a slight decline having attempted to strengthen earlier and is now testing the level of 67.30, developing a drawdown in quotations.Investors were expecting China's economy to demonstrate higher recovery rates against the background of the rejection of the "zero tolerance" measures, which would remove a number of quarantine restrictions, as well as decrease the volume of raw material extraction capacities in Russia, but these expectations were not justified. In addition, market sentiment is an additional negative factor for "black gold", as traders fear that the banking sector will be too vulnerable to the crisis, catalyzing the global recession, which will affect the demand for energy market. According to the updated forecast released by the financial conglomerate Goldman Sachs, OPEC countries plan to increase the production volumes only by Q3 in 2024, and the price of oil may resume its positions at 94.00 for the next 12 months, after which it will consolidate at 97.00.Resistance levels: 68.04, 70.00, 71.00, 73.00.Support levels: 67.00, 65.74, 64.00, 63.00.

Market participants are predicting a hawkish course on monetary parameters from the Fed and a strengthening of the interest rate by 0.25% to reach the psychological threshold of the target of 5.00%, which may encourage regulator officials to take a wait-and-see break amid growing risks to the banking sector.Resistance levels: 0.6700, 0.6750, 0.6800 and 0.6853.Support levels: 0.6650, 0.6600, 0.6563, 0.6500.USDCAD: The asset expects new incentives in the marketDuring the Asian trading the currency pair USDCAD shows a slight increase, holding positions in the area of 1.3720.Investors keep low dynamics on transactions, wishing to wait for new stimulus to activate the market. Experts continue to focus on the results of the meeting of the US FRS officials which will be held on Wednesday. They will be able to see the concrete decisions on the interest rate and to adjust their estimates regarding the further steps on the monetary policy. The current expectations foresee the increase of the index by 0,25% up to the target value of 5.00% while 26.0% of experts let the neutral dynamics at the current level of 4.75% be maintained. Recall that the cycle of incremental adjustment of the cost of credit borrowing faced significant challenges against the background of the evidence of the crisis in the national banking sector.

The crisis was managed to buy, but investor sentiment did not ignore this fact, now they are concerned that the correction of the key indicator will only increase the shakiness of the situation.Resistance levels: 1.3750, 1.3800, 1.3860, 1.3900.Support levels: 1.3700, 1.3650, 1.3600, 1.3535.USDJPY: Experts are waiting to see the inflation dataThe trading instrument USDJPY is showing moderate strengthening, set to recover Friday's losses, which caused an update of the local low of February 14.

Preliminary estimates suggest that Japan's inflation rate will fall to 4.1% from 4.3% and the core indicator outside of the food group cost sector has a good chance of showing 3.1%, which is heavily inferior to January's value of 4.2% amid government subsidies for gas and electricity costs mitigating the sharp rise in households' living standards. Moreover, investors are waiting for Friday's statistics on Japanese business sentiment index, preliminary forecasts of which allow for a correction to 47.5 points from 47.7 points by Jibun Bank.Resistance levels: 133.00, 134.00, 134.54, 135.57.Support levels: 132.00, 131.00, 130.00, 129.39.Gold analysisThe precious metal is actively moving up towards 1975.0, taking advantage of a window of opportunity as the U.S. financial system is under severe pressure.Last week was marked by the bankruptcy of several major banks, including Silicon Valley Bank, which holds one of the top 30 credit institutions in the country. The financial uncertainty caused mass deposit closures by depositors, intensifying liquidity shortages, and the US Federal Reserve embarked on a stimulus package allowing banks to borrow from the regulator without an upper liquidity ceiling. Thus, last week the financial sector borrowed a record $300.0 billion from the regulator. By comparison, borrowing amounted to only $111.0 billion during the peak period of the 2008 crisis.Resistance levels: 1990.0, 2060.0.Support levels: 1950.0, 1870.0.

According to Bloomberg, by the end of 2022, the National bank of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia acquired 9.9% of the Credit Suisse package, and currently its share has decreased by 30% or more than 500.0 million francs.

The accompanying comments of the regulator signaled that inflation will remain at a high level for a long period, and also confirmed the readiness to apply additional stimulus measures if price and financial stability face the challenge of new threats. However, the regulator refrained from forecasts on further steps to tighten monetary parameters, prioritizing the stability of the financial and banking sectors, which have been aggravated since the beginning of the week after official information about the bankruptcy of a number of American credit institutions. The increased concerns about the Swiss bank Credit Suisse Group were completely offset by the information that the bank was supported by the National Bank of Switzerland in the amount of 54.0 billion dollars, which partially reduced the panic on the rank, and also restored the issuer's position on the sites.Resistance levels: 0.8775, 0.8801, 0.8841, 0.8875.Support levels: 0.8750, 0.8720, 0.8692, 0.8660.USDTRY: the elements are putting pressure on the Turkish economyThe USDTRY currency pair demonstrates a multidirectional trend, being in the area of 19.0000, developing growth. The losses of the Turkish lira to the "American" since March 2021 amounted to about 60%. Negative trends for the Turkish currency are reinforced by traders' fears about the consequences of natural disasters that occurred in February-March, against which more than 49.0 thousand people became victims, which was only intensified by floods that occurred in the provinces of southeastern Turkey.

The asset is trading at 1930.00, holding the local maximum for February 2.Last evening, gold showed a moderate decline, as the publication of the final minutes of the summit of ECB officials followed. According to expectations, the agency decided to increase the key percentage by 0.50% to the target value of 3.50%. Alarming news from the financial world about the crisis among the European and American banking sectors has increased analysts' fears that the European Central Bank will reduce the correction step by raising the cost of borrowing by only 0.25%. Meanwhile, the European regulator improved its own expectations regarding inflation dynamics at the end of this year to 5.3% from the previous 6.3%, and also revised the GDP estimates for the end of 2023 to 1.0% from 0.5%.

The pair traded around 1.2080, continuing to grow in anticipation of new stimulus for the correction.Earlier the head of financial authorities of the Kingdom Jerem Hunt provided the national budget for parliamentarians to study in order to stabilize economic indicators. Based on estimates based on OBR calculations, given the significant stabilization of energy costs reduction on an annual basis GDP showed a correction of only -0.2% instead of the -1.5% expected the day before, and will grow 1.8% in 2024 and 2.5% in 2025. Analysts expect the index to adjust for growth of 2.1% in 2026 and 1.9% in 2027, which rules out the economy going into a technical recession this year, as expected the day before.

Thus, the Bank of Japan announced an additional auction of Treasury securities, and investors will see the offer of 10-year bonds at a rate of 0.5% on each business day thanks to the operations with rate fixing. Moreover, the regulator itself will increase the volume on Treasury securities in the market at the announced rate, continuing to buy back exchange-traded real estate trusts and ETF funds, topping out at 180.0 billion yen and 12.0 trillion yen respectively, supplementing operations by buying back corporate-segment bonds to return their outstanding value to 3.0 trillion yen, as it did before the covid-19 pandemic.Resistance levels: 135.60, 137.90.Support levels: 133.20, 130.50.Crude Oil market analysisHaving completed the downward dynamic from the beginning of the week which helped it to reach the local minimum of December 12, today, March 15, in the morning trading the oil grade WTI is quoted by the correction, being at the level of 72.50, which is supported by technical factors.Pressure on the asset stems from growing concerns over the prospects for the global and American economies.

The pair is regaining ground after ending a three-day "bearish" rally, which was followed by an update of the local highs of February 14.The Japanese economy remains in a difficult situation. Despite consumer prices in December reaching a maximum of over 40 years at 4.0%, surpassing the target set by the national regulator, and government debt at 1.0 trillion yen or 266% of gross domestic product in January, the Bank of Japan continues to keep monetary parameters on the current super soft vector, including keeping the interest rate in negative territory, fearing the onset of deflation. Officials agree that rising prices do not have a sustainable trend and expect inflation to lose its potential by the end of 2023. But a recent Center for Economic Research in Japan forecast a seasonally adjusted GDP figure for January that was down 0.6% from December, the biggest drop since August 2022.

A significant strengthening of the cost of fruits and vegetables by 5.6%, soft drinks by 1.6%, meat and poultry - 0.6%.

At the moment, the gold is held around 1900.00, continuing its decline.Japan also shows upward dynamics, where the bank metal managed earlier to update the level of 66.67, having surpassed the level of the previous week by 32.0 yen. As it follows from the reports of industrial producer using precious metals Tanaka Kikinzoku Kogyo KK, the upward trend signals about the uncertainty of market participants about the further stability of the "American" amid the collapse of several banking institutions - Signature Bank and Silicon Valley Bank, which pushes investors to redirect their capital to more secure instruments of the market. The day before, holding a press conference, the US President Joe Biden announced his appeal to Congressmen with a petition to tighten regulatory measures in the industry in order to "minimize the probability of recurrence of bank failures". At the same time, the Fed and Treasury Department officials launched an emergency aid program for credit institutions, which will stimulate the sale of treasury securities at par, thereby increasing the necessary level of liquidity.Resistance levels: 1914.44, 1930.00, 1952.53, 1974.22.Support levels: 1900.00, 1878.84, 1869.49, 1857.27.
