An unclear outlook in the European region put moderate pressure on the EUR/USD currency pair, while the governments are regularly approving strong measures to combat rising prices. Thus, according to ECB (European Central Bank) head Christine Lagarde, as part of the fight against rising inflation is likely to increase the key indicator to the level at which economic growth will be stopped. For the record, the EU's marginal recorded inflation rate has surpassed the 9.0% target and will not be able to decrease in the short term.

Oil prices

"Black gold" of WTI grade is moving within the medium-term downward dynamics, but managed to stabilize between the indicators 83.00-87.00.

During the trading session on Wednesday, global markets are vulnerable and are influenced by a number of contrary factors. Thus, the participants of the trades expect the results of the US Federal Reserve's two-day monetary policy summit to be announced today, in which the key indicator correction might reach 0.75% or even 100 basis points at once, which would strengthen the US dollar against the main alternative competitors, not excluding the commodities segment. Also, the dominance of hawks in the agencies may lead to a more aggressive strategy of monetary policy tightening in the United States and the euro area countries, after which the risk of recession and decline in demand for raw materials will increase significantly. The asset is supported by oil shortage in the markets with the probability of further aggravation. According to the latest information of the cartel OPEC +, 3.58 million barrels less "black gold" per day are produced in accordance with the production plan, which amounts to 3.5% of global consumption. This situation was made possible due to production sagging and economic constraints reducing oil production in Russia.

  • Support levels: 81.25, 78.00, 75.00.

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.

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.

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.

We remind you that at the beginning of this week, official statements were made about the liquidation of a number of credit institutions in the United States, which required the intervention of federal authorities to localize the negative effect.

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%.

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. The consumer inflation index should decline to 2.9% by early next year, which is well below its peak value of 10.1%. Moreover, the spring budget includes a bailout package for families who are prevented from returning to work by rising child-support costs. Meanwhile, a lifetime cap on tax-free retirement contributions is announced for April.Resistance levels: 1.2100, 1.2140, 1.2176, 1.2236.Support levels: 1.2054, 1.2000, 1.1933, 1.1875.USDJPY: Bank of Japan estimates the inflation outlook for the fiscal year 2024The trade shows a moderate decline in the downside momentum from earlier and the yen is limited upside due to weak macro statistics from Japan.For instance, the index industrial production for January showed a decline of 3.1% from the previous -2.3%, with the market estimating the figure at -2.3%. Monthly decline momentum accelerated to -5.3% from -4.6%, disappointing experts who expected neutral dynamics. Investors also noted rising exports for February by 6.5% after strengthening by 3.5% in the previous month at market estimates of 7.1%. Imports strengthened by 8.3% over the same period, significantly behind the previous month's 17.5%, while the forecast was for a positive 12.2%. A notable recovery in Japan's exports significantly narrowed the trade deficit for February to -897.7 billion yen from -3498.6 billion yen, surpassing experts' estimates of -1069.4 billion yen.Resistance levels: 134.00, 134.54, 135.57, 136.50.Support levels: 133.00, 132.00, 131.00, 130.00.USDCAD: The pair is testing the level 1.3750.During the Asian trading session, the trading instrument USDCAD shows a moderate decline at the level of 1.3750.Earlier, the U.S. dollar showed significant strengthening, allowing to fully offset losses from the beginning of the week amid reports on the liquidation of Signature Bank and Silicon Valley Bank, which caused a barrage of criticism from investors, collapsing the quotes. The U.S. Federal Reserve and the Treasury Department, in turn, hastened to stabilize the situation, promising guaranteed payments for all lost deposits and announcing additional measures for emergency funding of the banking sector in order to avoid similar events in the future. Economists agree that the financial authority will take a break in the cycle of systemic tightening of monetary parameters and refrain from the decision to strengthen the interest rate by 0.25% at the end of the meeting announced for next week.Resistance levels: 1.3800, 1.3860, 1.3900 and 1.3950.Support levels: 1.3750, 1.3700, 1.3650, 1.3600.Gold PricesThe precious metal is actively strengthening for the second week in a row, making a new high of the last two months, reaching the level of 1937.50. Gold increased its attractiveness among investors, as a hedge asset based on two factors: the developing banking crisis and the U.S. Federal Reserve's monetary policy.Investors are most concerned about the likely lack of liquidity in the banking sector, because the liquidation of Signature Bank and SVB may provoke a similar process around the world, followed by a decrease in the volume of loans issued, business activity will noticeably decrease, and the global economy will come under serious pressure. According to investors, such concerns are not unfounded, especially since a negative trend is beginning to be observed in the eurozone, ignoring the joint statements of officials at various levels about the fact that the banking sector is protected and the stability of the financial system is at a reliable level. During the last week, UniCredit Group, FinecoBank S.p.A., Banca Monte dei Paschi di Siena and Credit Suisse Group actively lost positions in the markets, and the latter was at risk of bankruptcy, which forced the Swiss Central Bank to allocate an additional 50.0 billion. francs to stimulate the institution. The general trend across the regions allows for the manifestation of a crisis situation in the short term, despite the efforts of the authorities to stabilize the situation, and investors will have to look for more stable assets, among which gold becomes more attractive.Resistance levels: 1937.50, 1968.75, 2000.00.Support levels: 1875.00, 1843.75, 1812.50.

The asset reached the level of 1.0750 continuing to strengthen, having updated the local maximum of February 14.Trading continues at a moderate pace as investors took a wait-and-see approach ahead of the ECB meeting due on Thursday. Recall that at the end of the meeting analysts expect to see correction of the interest rate by 0.50% and increase of the key rate to 3.5% per annum, and then do not rule out that the regulator will give priority to a pause for evaluation of the measures approved earlier. By Friday, March 17, experts expect the publication of February data on the consumer price index, which may influence further steps of the European Central Bank on the issue of monetary parameters in the near future. Based on estimates, inflation will add 0.8% on a monthly basis and 8.5% on an annual basis, continuing well above the department's target of 2.0%.Resistance levels: 1.0758, 1.0800, 1.0850, 1.0900.Support levels: 1.0700, 1.0640, 1.0600, 1.0550.NZDUSD: the asset is testing the local highsThe NZDUSD trading instrument displays mixed momentum, holding in the area of 0.6230. The currency pair retains the potential for upward dynamics, which was formed the previous week and gave an opportunity to update the local maximum of March 1. Meanwhile, bullish factors caused by the liquidation of several US banking institutions - Signature Bank and Silicon Valley, by the beginning of the week, are gradually losing their influence. The U.S. stock market showed earlier correctional growth, and the shares of many companies failed to recover the significant loss of positions from the beginning of the week, despite the announcement of the emergency stimulation program for the banking sector from the U.S. Federal Reserve and the rhetoric of the country leader Joe Biden, which gave signals to investors that the situation in the economy is under control.The day before the publication came the macroeconomic statistics block from the USA, which also helped the market stability. For instance, consumer prices for February slowed to 6.0% from 6.4% and the core value slowed from 5.6% to 5.5%, just as analysts had predicted. Weakening inflation momentum going forward will allow the Fed to avoid increasing the pace of borrowing cost corrections so as not to exacerbate the situation of a possible banking and financial crisis in the country.Resistance levels: 0.6250, 0.6300, 0.6350, 0.6400.Support levels: 0.6200, 0.6155, 0.6100 and 0.6049.USDJPY: Japanese regulator keeps ultra-soft monetary policyNegative dynamics in the US dollar allows the USDJPY to correct at 134.51."The Japanese" intends to strengthen the positive dynamics against the background of the publication of the final minutes of the meeting of the Bank of Japan, as there were no fundamental changes in the monetary parameters, but there was a separate correction. 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. Thus, the closing of some banking institutions in the U.S. signaled the markets about the vulnerability of the banking sector in particular and the financial system as a whole to the regular monetary policy tightening and the market uncertainty. In turn, the Treasury Department announced emergency stimulus measures for banks, supporting depositors, thereby assuring that their deposits remaining in the accounts of liquidated institutions will be paid to depositors, while the amounts in the accounts at SVB bank mostly exceeded the insurance limit.Resistance levels: 73.00, 74.00, 76.00, 78.00.Support levels: 71.00, 70.00, 68.15, 67.00.

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. Economists argue that a continuation of the current trend will cause the national economy to lose 3.4% for the year already in Q1.Resistance levels: 134.00, 134.54, 135.57, 136.50.Support levels: 133.00, 132.00, 131.00, 130.00.NZDUSD: the position is in the trend of the head & shoulders reversal pattern.A sharp weakening of the US dollar allowed the pair NZDUSD to go to the local growth at 0.6206.The positive dynamics was caused by the macroeconomic statistics, based on which the food products group increased by 1.5% in February, taking into account the seasonal fluctuations, showing 2.1%. A significant strengthening of the cost of fruits and vegetables by 5.6%, soft drinks by 1.6%, meat and poultry - 0.6%. Meanwhile, tourism industry statistics showed an increase in the number of foreign tourists visiting New Zealand in January to 265,400, surpassing the same month in 2022 by 261,400.Support levels: 0.6156, 0.6000.Resistance levels: 0.6265 and 0.6400.Gold analysisThe precious metal is quoted in decline, because the "bulls" lost potential in the last three trading sessions, which allowed the asset to update the local high of February 3. 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, according to comments from representatives of the Japanese banking institution Mizuho Securities Co. Ltd., after the change of the head in the Bank of Japan, the regulator is likely to continue to maintain the current course of monetary policy until the end of Q2, because the dynamics of inflation is not weakening.

It was the reason for the local growth of the annual index from -1.1% to 0.1% in the previous period. Investors note that technical exit of economy from recession gives positive signals to the market, contrary to analysts' expectations of more active dynamics. The driver for positive indicators was the increase in consumer spending, which added 0.3% for Q4 in 2022, having shown zero dynamics before. The value of exports increased by 1.5%, reflecting a positive trend for the fifth quarter in a row, while imports decreased by 0.4%, which has not been seen since Q3 2021. Meanwhile, business decreased capital investment by 0.5%.Support levels: 135.30, 131.00.Resistance levels: 138.00, 142.00.AUDUSD: the regulator continues to tighten monetary parametersAccording to the trading floors, the weaker Australian dollar allows the AUDUSD to quote at 0.6612.Investors noted the Reserve Bank of Australia's decision to raise the interest rate by 0.25%, bringing the target to 3.60%, which signaled the continuation of the hawkish vector, as economists suggested. According to experts, an increase in the indicator at a more rapid rate of 0.50% would have caused a strong vulnerability of the "Australian" to the main competitors of the currency basket, stimulating a more serious decline. Commenting on the situation, Chairman Philip Lowe said that the dynamics of consumer prices is close to its peak and the indexation of wages was less than expected marks, which will avoid the formation of a "spiral" trend. According to preliminary data the consumer prices can reach the target range of 2.0%-3.0% at the end of the year, now the regulator officials have planned a pause to assess the state of economic activity after ten stages of key increase.Resistance levels: 0.6670 and 0.6860.Support levels: 0.6560, 0.6360.Silver pricesThe precious metal is quoted by the local correction trend, testing the 20.10 mark. At the end of the last month, the silver has fallen to the current 20.00 from 24.00 in the past, and the USD Index has strengthened to 105.500 from 101.000 in the same period, showing a high correlation between these instruments.The future outlook for the banking metal does not look cloudless. So, the summit of the American regulator was announced on March 22, and taking into account the "hawkish" rhetoric of the agency's head the day before, the investors agreed that the interest rate correction will amount to 0.50%. The proponents of a more aggressive fight against consumer prices are getting more and more, which creates a positive background to support the dollar.The industrial sector has continued to reduce the need for silver since the beginning of this year. According to statistics from the Semiconductor Industry Association, the January 2023 global market for semiconductor products, where the metal is widely used, declined 18.5%, amounting to $41.23 billion to last January 2022's $50.74 billion.Resistance levels: 20.60, 22.00.Support levels: 19.60, 18.20.Oil Market analysisThe price of WTI crude oil is moving in a local corridor of 71.00-83.40. in anticipation of stimulus, which could increase the chances of more volatility.The stock is supported by the statistics from the Energy Information Administration of U.S. Department of Energy, which reflected a reduction of reserve by 1.694 million barrels this week, while market expectations were 0.395 million barrels and the previous indicator was 1.165 million barrels. Meanwhile, the geopolitical factor, which affects Russia as a major oil and oil products importer, and market participants' caution about high probability of global economic recession, significantly restrain the growth of the asset, thus confirming the forecast of Barclays analysts, who revised the average oil price estimates for the current year. Thus, the Brent grade, according to the analysts, will be able to reach 92.00 against 98.00 last year, and WTI may hold at 87.00 instead of the previous estimate of 94.00.Resistance levels: 80.95, 83.40, 89.77.Support levels: 73.00, 71.00, 66.00, 62.00.
