Forex forecast for today. GBP/USD continued the sharp decline

Forex forecast for today. GBP/USD continued the sharp decline

On Wednesday, the Pound/Dollar (GBP/USD) fell by almost 80 points and reached the level of 1.3735. GBP/USD continued the sharp decline of the previous day from more than two-week highs.

The drop had no obvious catalyst and could only be attributed to some technical weakness in the British currency (GBP) caused by the continued recovery of the Euro/Pound (EUR/GBP) pair. The quotes fell to a four-day low and could not find support in the area of 1.3770. The prolonged correction in US treasury yields is not in favor of the US Dollar, but at the moment the pound looks even more vulnerable.

The UK services PMI unexpectedly declined in March. However, the change was minimal and would hardly have been able to provide a strong sell-off of the pound. The British currency (GBP) has been trading in the range against the Dollar (USD)  for more than a month, and further dynamics remain as uncertain as possible. Forecasts for the recovery of the US and UK economies imply rapid growth during this year. At the same time, it is assumed that consumer inflation in the US will grow faster, and this will lead to an earlier increase in the Fed's interest rate.

In the trading forecast (signal), I expect a further decline in GBP/USD to the price value of 1.1675.

Canada's Manufacturing Industry Slows Sales in April
Canada's Manufacturing Industry Slows Sales in April The volume of sales recorded in the Canadian manufacturing industry was $57.1 billion in April. Compared to the previous month, the indicator fell by 2.1%, which was due to a significant reduction in sales of transport equipment, petroleum products and coal. At the same time, in the areas of mechanical engineering, woodworking and chemical industry, there was a significant increase in the indicator. Sales growth in the manufacturing industry, excluding transport equipment, was 1.5%. This indicator shows an increase for the past 12 months. It is also reported that in April, the price index for industrial products increased by 1.6%. Automotive companies that are experiencing a shortage of semiconductors, reduced sales by 36.5%, marking the largest monthly drop since April last year. The growth in sales of oil and coal, which was observed during the previous 6 months, was replaced in April by a decrease of 7.1%. The main reason for the decline is the suspension of the operation of a number of oil refineries for the period of their maintenance. Manufacturing inventories totaled $89.2 billion in April, an increase of 0.8% over the month. The largest contribution to this indicator was made by stocks of equipment, cars and food. At the same time, the total cost of new orders decreased by 2.5%, amounting to $57 billion.

Industrial production growth in the euro zone exceeded the forecast
Industrial production growth in the euro zone exceeded the forecast Christine Lagarde, in an interview with Politico, said that the European economy is currently at a turning point. The central bank will only begin to discuss curtailing the emergency assistance program after it is convinced of the sustainable nature of the economic recovery process. Currently, the euro zone has an asset purchase program in the amount of 1 trillion 850 billion euros. This program will expire on March 31 next year. At the same time, Christine Lagarde admits that it can be extended. Everything will depend on the situation in the economy and the effectiveness of the fight against the pandemic. However, the results of a Reuters poll showed that most analysts have a different opinion. They believe that the Central Bank will not extend the duration of the bond purchase program. Moreover, he will start discussing the reduction of its volume at the September meeting. And such a decision can be made. Today, statistics on the dynamics of European industrial production were released. In April, it increased by 0.8% compared to March.The statistics, which were published today by Eurostat, were better than analysts ' expectations. As it became known, the volume of industrial production in the euro zone in April increased by 0.8% compared to the March value of this indicator. In annual terms, the growth was 39.3%. At the same time, analysts assumed an increase in indicators by 0.4% and 37.4%, respectively. Eurostat also published statistics on the European Union. The volume of industrial production in the EU increased by 0.5% compared to the previous month, and by 38.7% compared to April 2020. In the reporting month, the production of goods intended for short-term use decreased. At the same time, the output of durable goods, on the contrary, increased. The fuel and energy sector showed an increase in production in April. In the euro area, it grew by 3.2%, and in the European Union - by 2.9%. The leaders in the growth rate of industrial production were Belgium, Malta and Estonia. The highest rates of decline were observed in Denmark, Hungary, and Lithuania.

Forex trading. Cryptocurrency forecast for today, June 14, 2021
Forex trading. Cryptocurrency forecast for today, June 14, 2021 Bitcoin has returned to the price value of $37,000. Ethereum declined to the support of $2,400, and the price of XRP fell to the level of 84 cents. The total capitalization of the cryptocurrency market was 1.55 trillion Dollars.The analytical company Delphi Digital notes that bitcoin has fallen by half from its absolute highs in less than two months. Now the cryptocurrency needs a new major catalyst to resume growth and cancel out the short-term negative factors that have appeared on the charts. The decline was largely due to a large reduction in margin positions and profit-taking after one of the best stages in the history of the cryptocurrency. When all traders take margin long positions, a strong correction is only a matter of time. Despite the latest decline, 85% of the Bitcoins in holders' wallets remain profitable relative to the deposit price. Historically, with such declines, minima were detected when the metric reached values of at least about 55%.Last week, the Legislative assembly of El Salvador passed a bill to recognize the first cryptocurrency as an official means of payment in the country on a par with the US dollar. El Salvador guarantees instant automatic conversion of bitcoin to the US dollar, which will remain the base currency of the state. The authorities will launch a $150 million trust fund to buy a digital asset from the public. In the future, El Salvador plans to keep these funds on the balance sheet. Analysts believe that the recognition of the leading cryptocurrency as a means of payment can equally entail both an influx of investment into the country and an outflow of capital. The IMF has already said that El Salvador's decision may entail a number of risks and regulatory problems. And the JPMorgan bank doubted that the adoption of bitcoin will bring the state a special economic benefit. Forex trading. Cryptocurrency forecast for today, June 9, 2021 In the forecast, the price of Bitcoin is expected to decline to the levels of 36700, 36500 and 36000 Dollars. Ethereum will decline to the supports of $2300, $2200 and $2000, while XRP will fall to the levels of 82, 80 and 77 cents.

Forex trading. WTI Oil forecast for today, June 14, 2021
Forex trading. WTI Oil forecast for today, June 14, 2021 On Friday, oil futures rose in price, which was the third week of growth in a row. A barrel of WTI crude oil reached the level of $70.4.The International Energy Agency said it expects global demand to return to pre-crisis levels by the end of next year. Producers will need to increase production to match the recovery in demand, the agency said in a June report on the oil market. After a record decline of 8.6 million barrels per day in 2020, global oil demand will recover by 5.4 million in 2021. The recovery is expected to be uneven across regions, sectors, and products. Also, the slow spread of vaccines may continue to hamper recovery in non-OECD countries.The agency also noted that it sees room for OPEC+ countries to increase production by 1.4 million barrels per day above the previous target. A detailed look at the balance sheets confirms early expectations that OPEC+ needs to ease restrictions to maintain balance in global oil markets. The cartel's conservatism in supply has supported global prices since last year, and this is the reason why quotations have now reached such high levels. There is now room for an increase in the production of the alliance countries in the second half of this year, and while this has not happened, there is also the potential for further price increases. Forex trading. WTI Oil forecast for today, June 14, 2021 The forecast expects a pullback of WTI crude oil quotes to the levels of 70, 69.8 and 69.5 Dollars per barrel.

Forex trading. Gold exchange rate forecast for today, June 14, 2021
Forex trading. Gold exchange rate forecast for today, June 14, 2021 At the end of last week, the price of Gold again unsuccessfully tested the resistance level of $1,900 per ounce and eventually fell back to the level of 1,877.Since mid-May, the asset has been trading in the range of 1850-1900. In May, US consumer inflation rose immediately by 5% and it seemed that this would be the perfect moment for gold on the way to the key resistance of $2000 per ounce. Nevertheless, the strongest price pressure in the US in more than a decade did not help gold, which again fell back to a weekly low.Another important factor in favor of the growth in the value of gold will be the introduction of new banking rules, called Basel III, which come into force in Europe and the United States at the end of June. In essence, the rules make changes to which instruments are included in both the asset and the liability of the registry. Physical gold is moved to the first level asset, which is taken into account when calculating reserves at a value of 100%. This in itself is a positive development, as banks will be able to store Gold without compromising treasury bonds and other assets. Thus, the difference in the valuation of physical and paper gold increased significantly, which gave banks an incentive to buy the physical precious metal. As banks have until the end of the year to fully meet the requirements, asset purchases will continue in the coming months. Forex trading. Gold exchange rate forecast for today, June 14, 2021 The forecast assumes an increase in the price of Gold to the levels of 1890, 1895 and 1900 Dollars per ounce.

Forex trading. Pound/Dollar GBP/USD forecast for today, June 14, 2021
Forex trading. Pound/Dollar GBP/USD forecast for today, June 14, 2021 The British currency declined in price against the Dollar to the support of 1.4100.Rising inflation in the US and traders' confidence in the Fed's commitment to its monetary policy negate all the achievements of the pound. In particular, the index of business activity in the UK services sector rose to 62.9 points – the highest in several decades. Monetary policy in the UK is becoming less stimulating, and the risks for the forecast are shifted towards the growth of the national currency. The Bank of England will not make any changes in the first half of the year, but if the macroeconomic indicators remain strong, we can confidently expect a reduction in the quantitative easing program in the autumn.The main event this week will be the Fed meeting on Wednesday. Most likely, the regulator will continue to talk about the temporary nature of inflation. Given that various Fed officials have recently been less confident in defending the status quo, it can be assumed that the Central Bank's rhetoric will change as early as August at the annual symposium in Jackson Hole, where it will announce the end of quantitative easing in December. With the US economy recovering, jobs rising and inflation rising, it is clear that the risks are shifted towards an early interest rate hike. The Fed is still talking about early 2024, but most forecasts suggest that 2023 is the more likely date. Forex trading. Pound/Dollar GBP/USD forecast for today, June 14, 2021 The forecast assumes an increase in the Pound/Dollar exchange rate to the price values of 1.4130, 1.4150 and 1.4175.

Forex trading. Euro/Dollar EUR/USD forecast for today, June 14, 2021
Forex trading. Euro/Dollar EUR/USD forecast for today, June 14, 2021 On Friday, the Euro/Dollar exchange rate fell sharply and reached the support level of 1.2100. Demand for the US currency increased after the rise in US consumer prices in May and reached the highest levels in a week. Inflation in the United States immediately added 5%, but market participants are convinced that the Fed will keep its ultra-soft monetary policy unchanged.The European Central Bank raised its forecasts for economic growth and inflation in the euro zone at a meeting on Thursday. The regulator also promised to keep the volume of securities purchases unchanged until the end of the summer. Price pressures in Europe remain subdued. Even after the upward revision of the inflation forecasts, the ECB does not expect the consumer price growth rate to reach 2% over the forecast horizon. As the euro zone economy is expected to strengthen significantly in the coming months, market participants expect the ECB to announce a slowdown in the pace of bond purchases from the fourth quarter of 2021 at its September meeting. In April, the region's retail sales rate was only 0.3% above the first-quarter average, and this contrasts with much stronger growth in the UK. The euro area's GDP level in the first quarter of the year was still 5.1% below the pre-pandemic peak in the fourth quarter of 2019. Although the situation has improved since then and the economy has gained some momentum, the underperformance is reflected in the business activity indices. In particular, the indicator in the services sector of the euro zone increased in May, but not strongly enough, as expected according to forecasts. As a result, the ECB may be cautious about reducing monetary stimulus in the near future. Forex trading. Euro/Dollar EUR/USD forecast for today, June 10, 2021 The forecast expects a corrective growth of the Euro/Dollar exchange rate to the levels of 1.2120, 1.2140 and 1.2170.

Pound/Dollar: last week results and forecast for June 7-11, 2021
Pound/Dollar: last week results and forecast for June 7-11, 2021 The volatility of the British currency increased at the end of last week. The quotes of the pound/dollar pair fell to the support level of 1.4100. The pound fell to a one-month low against the dollar on Thursday after Britain and the European Union failed to agree on solutions to trade problems in Northern Ireland. The two countries exchanged threats last week in a standoff that could overshadow an international summit hosted by Britain.The pound fell sharply in value after the Vice-president of the European Commission, Maros Sefkovic, said that the European Union is considering filing a lawsuit against the UK over its actions in Northern Ireland. In theory, this conflict could lead to a lawsuit by the fall or the possible introduction of tariffs and quotas. Brussels accuses London of failing to check some goods being moved from the UK to Northern Ireland, and has launched a legal challenge to the British government's unilateral extension of the grace period. British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said that he is optimistic about negotiations with the EU on a solution to the trade conflict and on the issue with Northern Ireland. The Prime Minister also added that this dispute will not overshadow the upcoming summit of the G7 leaders. But currency quotes reacted with distrust to the words of the prime minister. The pound continued to fall on Thursday and reached its lowest level against the dollar since May 14. Analysts also noted that the increase in the number of cases of coronavirus is again putting pressure on the pound, as it may delay the recovery of the British economy.MUFG Bank still sees the idea of opening a long position on the pound/dollar pair from the level of 1.4175 with a target of 1.4585 and a stop loss at 1.3950. The bank maintains a positive outlook for the pound and does not believe in delaying the lifting of the full lock in the country at the end of June. At the same time, analysts see serious risks for the national currency due to trade tensions between the EU and the UK. The bank said monthly GDP data for April showed a strong rebound as the country's economy reopened and trade deals with Australia and Norway were announced. Even if the last stage of lifting the quarantine is temporarily postponed, the economic effect of this action should be minimal. Market attention will be focused on the growing tensions between the EU and the UK over the implementation of the Northern Ireland protocol, but MUFG Bank again does not expect a strong negative impact on the pound.The financial data also looks favorable, as the Bank of England's indicators show strong demand for British securities. Earlier it was reported about the increase in Japan's appetite for UK debt. The Bank of England's latest publication also shows that demand for sovereign debt from foreign investors remains high. Data for April showed that investors bought securities worth a total of 11.3 billion pounds, and this is a record volume in annual terms. The cumulative speculative position on the pound also remains long, which means that there is demand for the British currency. Pound/Dollar Forex signals and levels In the forecast, the Pound/Dollar exchange rate is expected to decline to 1.4080, 1.4060, 1.4030, 1.4000 and 1.3970.
