NZD/USD: The currency is trading in different directions

The New Zealand currency is moving in a weak rally, intending to recover the losses incurred the day before. At the moment the NZD/USD reached 0.6150, which has a moderate positive potential due to macroeconomic data from New Zealand and China.

Thus, the IDO (Business Optimism Index) from ANZ for August strengthened to -47.8 points from the previous -56.7 points, while experts expected the strengthening to -55.0 points. Expectations for the same period activity adjusted to -4.0% from last year's -8.7%, contrary to analysts' expectations of a decline to -8.9%. New Zealand construction approvals for July rose 5.0%, having previously shown a decline. On the whole, the level of dynamics managed to successfully surpass the experts' preliminary forecasts. The head of the RBNZ (Reserve Bank of New Zealand) confirmed the intention to conduct a twofold increase in the key indicator. The day before the officials of the agency adjusted the value for the seventh time in a row, which allowed to reach the target level of 3.00%, breaking the record for September 2015, while the value should be the previously announced 4.00%, which could effectively combat the rapid growth of consumer prices. Economists expect the monetary adjustment cycle to end by early next year.

  • Resistance levels: 0.6155, 0.6200, 0.6250, 0.6300.
  • Support levels: 0.6100, 0.6079, 0.6040, 0.6000.

EUR/USD: The Eurozone is reforming its electricity market

The Euro is trading moderately higher, trying to build on the bullish momentum from the week. EUR/USD intends to hold above the support threshold of 1.0000, using the uncertainty of the U.S. dollar.

As it follows from the released data the day before, the consumer price index in Germany has accelerated from the previous 7.5% to 7.9% on an annualized basis, meanwhile the monthly level fell to 0.3% from the previous 0.9%. The position of the harmonized consumer inflation index in the same period strengthened to 8.8% from 8.5%, as economists had expected. Slight fluctuations in the index were possible due to the cheapening of fuel, while the food and energy products group developed growth. Market participants are focused on the inflation data for August in the EU which was announced the day before. According to preliminary expectations the annual expression may update the record high at 9.0%.

  • Resistance levels: 1.0050, 1.0100, 1.0150 and 1.0200.
  • Support levels: 1.0000, 0.9950, 0.9900, 0.8950.

GBP/USD: the asset is held at lows from 2020

The British currency is trading within the ascending dynamics in pair with the US dollar, moving away from the record low updated earlier, getting ready to test the threshold of 1.1700 with the prospect of growth, wishing to use the ambiguous sentiment on the dollar.

Traders began to close long-term contracts, taking a wait-and-see attitude, wishing to assess the macro data, announced the day before. Thus, the report, announced for Wednesday, will help experts to estimate private sector employment, presented by ADP (Automatic Data Processing), and by the end of the week the official statements will be published. Preliminary expectations of employment are quite positive and this will allow the U.S. regulator to continue strengthening national currency and raise the interest rate by 0.75%.

  • Resistance levels: 1.1700, 1.1759, 1.1800 and 1.1854.
  • Support levels: 1.1647, 1.1600, 1.1531, 1.1480.

AUD/USD: pair is trading under pressure due to weak data

The trading instrument AUD/USD trades within the unstable dynamics, testing the level of 0.6884 against the background of the negative statistics published the day before.

Thus, the July indicators for residential real estate were released in Australia. The number of approved building applications showed a sharp decline of 17.2%, against the forecast of 5.0%, showing a second consecutive decline. Economists have already noted that this situation is due to the negative impact of monetary tightening by the national regulator. Construction projects rose 3.8% in Q2 compared to expectations of a 0.9% increase and new approvals for residential projects gained 0.7% compared to a 1.8% decline in the previous month. The negative trend has also affected the loan industry. Thus, the level of credit products sold continues to decline vigorously, amounting to 0.5% in July compared to 0.6% last month, the private sector segment has dropped from 0.9% to 0.7% due to rising loan servicing costs and rising key interest rates.

  • Resistance levels: 0.6928, 0.7122.
  • Support levels: 0.6847, 0.6681.

The instrument is near the level of 0.6430 with the prospect of strengthening, continuing to update the local maximum of August 15.Investors attribute the positive trend of the asset to a number of technical factors, while the fundamental data was quite contradictory. "The American" got a short-term impulse for the positive dynamics on the background of the release of statistics on the employment market at the end of last week. Thus, the reporting reflected the increase of new vacancies, opened outside of AIC sector for November by 263 thousand, having earlier strengthened by 284,0 thousand for the previous month, at expectations of the market of increase by only 200,0 thousand.Resistance levels: 0.6450, 0.6500, 0.6535, 0.6600.Support levels: 0.6400, 0.6350, 0.6288, 0.6250.USDCHF: The US labor market put pressure on dollarIn the Asian trading session the currency pair USD/CHF showed moderate decline, approaching the level of 0.9350.The "bears" resumed its advantage over the American currency, having unsuccessfully attempted to strengthen on Friday amid investors' reaction to the release of the national labor market data in November, according to which the level of new vacancies rose by 263.0 thousand, By the end of October experts adjusted the value of the same indicator to 264.0 thousand from the previous 261.0 thousand, and unemployment remained at 3.7% for November, while the value of average hourly earnings rose to 0.6% monthly from 0.5% while analysts expected correction to 0.3% and annual to 5.1% from 4.9%, with expectations of 4.6%.Resistance levels: 0.9400, 0.9478, 0.9550 and 0.9600.Support levels: 0.9350, 0.9300, 0.9200, 0.9100.EURUSD: Russian oil is under EU sanctionsThe EUR/USD trading instrument is testing the 1.0562 mark.The currency pair is rapidly gaining in value amid the adoption by the European authorities of the price cap on the "black gold" from the Russian Federation. Thus, the sea routes of supplies will be capped at $60/bbl, including insurance costs, freight, etc., which will reduce the actual purchase price by several more dollars. According to Alexander Novak, the Minister of Energy of the RF, such manipulations are contrary to the market pricing mechanism and official Moscow reserves the right to cut the supplies of raw materials to the Eurozone countries which have approved this ban even in spite of the need to reduce hydrocarbon production. Economists assume that the execution of Russia's threats to start supplying energy resources to the alternative market could become a driver for inflation in the EU. Meanwhile, macroeconomic data block displays a negative sentiment. Thus, EU manufacturers in October reported a decline of 2.9% in the price index, having earlier strengthened in September by 1.6%, which lowered the annual rate from 41.9% to 30.8%. Manufacturing capacity in France also continued its strong decline which saw October industrial production decline 2.6%, previously down 0.9% in September.Resistance levels: 1.0640 and 1.0850.Support levels: 1.0490, 1.0320.Cryptocurrency Market AnalysisWithin the previous week, BTC undertook an upward correction, even managed to recover the losses incurred the day before, which helped it to trade at 17400.00 at present.The cryptocurrency market is affected by two opposing factors. First, market participants are frightened by the likely consequences that may occur due to the bankruptcy of the FTX platform, which caused them to reduce investment in the digital segment of the market, as evidenced by the decline in the level of "whales", which, according to statistics from Glassnode, updated the two-year low at 1.662 thousand. Second, cryptocurrencies should find support from monetary factors as announced measures a week earlier by U.S. Federal Reserve officials to lower the pace of interest rate hikes at the December summit weakened the U.S. currency against major competitors, which include digital. Some analysts expect the change in the regulator's rhetoric to start the traditional pre-Christmas "Santa Claus rally," in which market leaders can regain their positions.Resistance levels: 17830.00, 19100.00, 20000.00.Support levels: 16600.00, 15000.00, 13750.00.

Taking into consideration the previous day released by Automatic Data Processing (ADP) corporate reporting on the private sector employment, which came to 127.0 thousand to the expected 200.0 thousand, the probability of the real dynamics worsening is still high.

Employment expectations call for a 200,000 increase in the non-farm payrolls rate, having previously strengthened by 261,000 in the previous period.

Positive support for the instrument was provided by a 2.2% strengthening of the level of completed constructions for Q3, having earlier decreased by 2.0%. Thursday morning publications are not able to support the prospect for the bullish momentum in the pair. Thus, the industrial sector business activity from S&P Global for November moderately declined to 51.3 points from the previous 51.5 points, not justifying even the neutral estimates of the experts.Resistance levels: 0.6853, 0.6900, 0.6950 and 0.7000.Support levels: 0.6800, 0.6750, 0.6700, 0.6650.NZDUSD: updating local highs for AugustThe New Zealand dollar is trading up moderately, having updated the local highs of August 17.Positions in the NZD/USD trading instrument continue to remain under pressure amid weak New Zealand indicators. Thus, sentiment expectations from the ANZ for November updated to -13.7% from the previous -2.5%, disappointing analysts who expected only -2.1%. The head of the RBNZ (Reserve Bank of New Zealand) pointed out that the recession was deliberately triggered to lower the consumer price index, having earlier officially strengthened the percentage by 0,75% to the target of 4,25%, after which investors got the signal that in 2023 the value has a chance to reach the maximum peak of 5,5%. The regulator's updated expectations call for the economy to contract at 1.0% for the next 12 months beginning in mid-Spring and then remain at that level for the next six months before resuming growth.Resistance levels: 0.6350, 0.6400, 0.6450 and 0.6500.Support levels: 0.6288, 0.6250, 0.6200, 0.6155.Gold pricesThe precious metal position in the market updated at 1780.00, intending to continue climbing to the level of 1785.00.Earlier, investors appreciated the speech of the US Federal Reserve chief, who signaled to the markets his intention to slow down the rate of interest rate correction from the next scheduled meeting. Thus, by mid-December, the agency will strengthen the key rate by 0.25%-0.50%, ending the systemic 0.75% hike. The official commented that the current decisions do not signal the end of the "hawkish" era of monetary policy, and the interest rate will remain high for a long time, where it will remain until the consumer price level corrects to the 2.0% target. Investors began to actively sell off the U.S. dollar, giving gold prices a boost on the market.Precious metals continue to see uncertainty in the market.

According to Reuters citing unnamed sources, the cartel does not intend to approve an additional reduction in production capacity of raw materials, following the example of the previous meeting in October, where the strategy was changed in favor of increasing plans for 2.0 million barrels per day in view of the unstable situation in the world markets. Recall that since December 5, investors expect an increased level of volatility in the market due to the beginning of the prohibition of supplies of oil by sea from Russia. Moreover, the European alliance countries want to agree on the upper price limit for the Russian raw materials, but could not come to an agreement, as uncertainty and disagreement among members of the bloc continue. It is likely that the European authorities' decision will cause growth in oil without a correction in the production quota.Resistance levels: 87.33, 89.20, 91.00 and 92.47.Support levels: 86.00, 83.89, 82.27, 81.00.

However the "bulls" lost the advantage, and by the end of the day session the pair plunged into negative values.The positive dynamics of the asset is supported by the correctional weakening of the American currency, which continues to be in a "bearish" trend due to the release of the minutes of the US Federal Reserve System meeting in November. The regulator sent a signal to the market that it is ready to reduce the rate of the key indicator correction already by the end of this year, which supports about 70% of the surveyed experts, expecting to see the next rate hike of 0.50%, and next year the rate may decrease to 0.25%.A positive stimulus for the euro was the briefing of ECB (European Central Bank) Governor Christine Lagarde, who earlier said that the regulator intends to continue strengthening the interest rate, ignoring the risks of economic slowdown, which will reduce business activity in the region.

Moreover, according to information from market platforms, yesterday the Urals oil brand reached the level of 51.96. Discussions continue, and experts doubt that all parties will agree on the deal by December 5, when the restrictive measures are due to enter into force as part of the eighth package of sanctions, including a ban on oil supplies from Russia via the sea route.Resistance levels: 88.20, 95.00.Support levels: 82.80, 77.50.

However, the upper bound on the target correction may also be revised upward because consumer price pressures are above the 2.0% target.Resistance levels: 0.9600, 0.9650, 0.9700, 0.9762.Support levels: 0.9550, 0.9478, 0.9400, 0.9350.Read more: USD/CHF: forex signals, online trading forecasts for today, characteristics & featuresUSD/CAD: The "bulls" lost the advantage at 1.3475The upward movement of the trading instrument to 1.3475 is due to the weakness of the Canadian currency because of the "black gold" WTI quotations slump, which decreased from 94.00 to 75.80. In the course of two weeks the asset losses reached 19.4%.The energy carrier correction the day before was 5% amid The Wall Street Journal report about the OPEC's intention to increase production by 500.0 thousand barrels a day to compensate for a possible decline of raw materials in Europe, but the information was denied by participants of the organization, after which the "black gold" resumed its positions at the opening session level earlier this week, and trading instrument USD/CAD retreated from its peak at 1.3475, preparing to develop a downward trend.The long-term prospect of the price movement remains for the "bears" in the market. The day before the investors had no success in testing the resistance levels of 1.3530-1.3475. It is likely that further decline will help the asset to update the minimum at the levels of 1.3250-1.3200, and after the retreat from the threshold of 1.3200, the negative dynamics will strengthen and the testing of the value 1.2970 will follow.Resistance levels: 1.3475, 1.3530.Support levels: 1.3250, 1.3200.Gold priceThe price of the precious metal is correcting in a downtrend, testing the level of 1744.00.The upward trend of the asset ended, after which the "bears" regained the asset advantage due to the alarming news background from China, which has already confirmed the death of its citizens, who were infected with the Covid-19 infection. Authorities have now begun closing industrial centers, raising fears of a complete lockdown in the provinces, which may increase pressure on the gold position.China held the leading position among consumers and miners of the asset, which is only confirmed by updated data from processing centers in Switzerland. For October, the country exported 159.57 tons of bank metal, the bulk of which was shipped to China, accounting for a share of 43.7 tons. This level is slightly lower than the 44.02 for September, reflecting lower demand due to increased quarantine measures in some provinces of the Celestial Empire. Turkey, according to the statistics, holds second place, as gold shipments to Ankara for October totaled 31.4 tons, behind September imports of 32.2 tons, confirming a trend of locally lower metal consumption.Support levels: 1725.0, 1665.0.Resistance levels: 1780.0, 1850.0.

Forex analytical forecast for today, November 17, for EUR/USD, USD/JPY, AUD/USD & Brent oil
AUD/USD, currency, EUR/USD, currency, USD/JPY, currency, Brent Crude Oil, commodities, Forex analytical forecast for today, November 17, for EUR/USD, USD/JPY, AUD/USD & Brent oil EUR/USD: US dollar is under pressureThe EUR/USD has been in an uptrend for two weeks in a row, hitting 1.0400. However the positive dynamics is supported not so much by the strengthening of the European currency as by the correction momentum of the American currency due to the October publication of the US CPI, which showed a significant reduction of its potential.The annual CPI reading was down to 7.7% from 8.2% previously, while producer prices were down to 8.0% from 8.4% previously. The publications reinforced hopes for a correction in the pace of further monetary policy tightening from the US Federal Reserve and fueled a potential resurgence of investor activity in the segment of risky assets. FOMC officials are attempting to avoid an overly optimistic wave for the market, noting that weaker inflation in October does not yet point to a victory over inflation, noting that the key rate cap has a chance of correcting, contrary to the current set plans. Meanwhile, the U.S. dollar continues to decline and at the time of writing.Resistance levels: 1.0498, 1.0620.Support levels: 1.0376, 1.0253, 1.0131.USD/JPY: Japanese regulator is set to stabilize inflationThe yen made a successful attempt to recover value on the back of the weakening US currency, which was complemented by currency interventions on the initiative of the Central Bank of Japan, allowing the trading instrument to test 139.62.In his speech early last week, central bank governor Haruhiko Kuroda reiterated the monetary authorities' commitment to "dovish" monetary policy to support economic activity and achieve stability and sustainability in the fight against inflation, which has encouraged the government to raise wages that lagged three quarters in a row. The government will hold consultations with labor and business representatives in the spring and should reach an agreement on a 3.0% wage increase for employees, rather than the 2.0% increase that was previously planned. According to the plans of the members of the central bank's board, this option will be possible due to the reduction of the national inflation rate to the target of 1.5% at the background of the correction impulse in the cost of raw materials in the world.Support levels: 137.65, 132.86.Resistance levels: 140.80 and 145.00.AUD/USD: trend can change to positive"The bulls keep trying to break over the psychological threshold of 0.6725, wishing to take full advantage of the moment of the weak American currency.Australia's regulator at the end of its extreme monetary parameters meeting confirmed its intention to continue to actively raise the key indicator, however it noted that the degree of correction is closely linked to the incoming macroeconomic indicators and preliminary estimates of employment and price pressures. Officials had projected that consumer prices would slow to an upper 3.0% as early as December, but the value was later revised upward to 2025. Meanwhile, the Australian Bureau of Statistics confirmed an increase in payroll indexation, which shows the average worker's pay, excluding bonuses, to 1.0% in the quarterly display, the highest since 2012 to the previous period, and average wages reached 3.1% versus 2.6% in the past, but behind a 7.3% increase in inflation.Resistance levels: 0.6725, 0.6900, 0.6990.Support levels: 0.6500, 0.6290.Read more: AUDUSD: analysis, signals, forecast for today and quotesOil market signalsThe benchmark Brent crude oil brand recorded positions below the level of 91.00.The price of "black gold" is again under the influence of "bears" on the data on decrease of weekly reserve in the USA.

As it follows from the statistics, there has been a decline in crude supplies to the cartel countries since the beginning of this month. The service analysts expect the negative indicators to increase by the end of November and the correction dynamics for exports to 1.0 million barrels per day, which meets the OPEC+ targets of reducing production capacity by 2.0 million bpd, set a week earlier in Vienna.Support levels: 89.20, 82.87.Resistance levels: 94.00, 98.87.
