Analytical Forex forecast for AUD/USD, NZD/USD, Solana and Oil for Thursday, June 13, 2024
AUD/USD, currency, NZD/USD, currency, Ethereum/USD, cryptocurrency, Bitcoin/USD, cryptocurrency, Brent Crude Oil, commodities, WTI Crude Oil, commodities, Solana, cryptocurrency, Analytical Forex forecast for AUD/USD, NZD/USD, Solana and Oil for Thursday, June 13, 2024 AUD/USD: Australian Dollar declines after May recordsThe AUD/USD currency pair is experiencing a drop, rolling back after yesterday's surge, when new local highs were reached since May 20, despite strengthening based on positive May data on the Australian labor market.The employment rate in Australia increased by 39.7 thousand, continuing to grow after adding 37.4 thousand in April, which significantly exceeds analysts' expectations, which assumed an increase of 30.0 thousand Full-time employment increased by 41.7 thousand, despite the previous decrease of 7.6 thousand, while part-time employment decreased by 2.1 thousand, after an increase of 45.0 thousand in the previous month. The unemployment rate dropped from 4.1% to 4.0%. These impressive figures confirm the Reserve Bank of Australia's (RBA) ability to ease monetary policy further.Meanwhile, the US dollar is stabilizing after the average trading session: The US Federal Reserve, following its last meeting, left the key rate at 5.50%, but left the door open for a rate cut in 2024. New economic forecasts from the Fed show a potential one and a half rate cuts of 25 basis points by the end of this year, although market expectations hint at two such cuts. The latest US inflation data show a reduction in risks, which led to increased confidence among analysts in the possibility of the first rate cut in September. Core inflation, excluding the cost of food and energy resources, showed a slowdown to 3.4% per annum and to 0.2% on a monthly basis.Resistance levels: 0.6667, 0.6679, 0.6700, 0.6725.Support levels: 0.6646, 0.6622, 0.6600, 0.6578.NZD/USD: Federal Reserve System confirmed the rate of 5.5% per annumDuring the Asian trading session, the NZD/USD currency pair is observing a moderate decline, reaching the level of 0.6166, after having recorded highs since January 15 a day earlier. This happened against the background of data on consumer inflation in the United States and the results of the recent Federal Reserve monetary policy meeting.At the last Fed meeting, the rate was kept at 5.5%. However, investors were particularly interested in the revised forecasts for the rate movement, which now show a decrease to 5.13% by the end of 2024, while previous estimates suggested a decrease to 4.60%. By the end of next year, it is expected to decrease to 4.13%, which is higher than the previously expected 3.90%. Current interest rate futures predict an even deeper decline of 46 basis points before the end of the year. At the same time, the May consumer price index showed a decrease from 3.4% to 3.3% in annual terms and from 0.3% to 0% on a monthly basis, while the base index decreased from 3.6% to 3.4%, which is lower than forecasts of 3.5%.Weak national macroeconomic statistics also have a negative impact on the New Zealand dollar: the volume of retail sales carried out using electronic cards fell by 1.6% year-on-year in May after a decrease of 3.8% earlier, and decreased from -0.4% to -1.1% on a monthly basis.Resistance levels: 0.6175, 0.6200, 0.6221, 0.6250.Support levels: 0.6152, 0.6130, 0.6100, 0.6082.Cryptocurrency market overviewThe quotes of the SOL/USD pair continue to weaken, aiming for a support level around 145.00, which has developed since last summer.The opinions of cryptocurrency market analysts differ: some experts suggest that the SEC's positive decision on applications for the creation of spot Ethereum ETFs may contribute to the launch of a similar fund based on Solana, which will support the growth of the value of SOL/USD. At the same time, other experts point to judicial decisions regarding the Coinbase and Kraken exchanges, where the SOL token was classified as a security, which may become an obstacle to its trading, although cases against Solana Labs have not been initiated.During this period, the company is strengthening control over the activities of validators: 30 operators were excluded from the delegation program for violations, having lost the opportunity to receive rewards for participating in the verification of transactions in the blockchain. According to CoinDesk, some bots were used for manipulation on decentralized financial platforms. In March, in the wake of the surge in popularity of meme tokens on Solana, Jito Labs temporarily disabled the mempool to prevent "sandwich attacks", but then activity increased again in private pools. Tim Garcia, who oversees the work with validators at Solana, confirmed that the company will continue to combat abuse by identifying and terminating cooperation with operators involved in unfair practices.Resistance levels: 159.60, 183.40.Support levels: 145.20, 121.00.Oil market overviewBrent Crude Oil prices are experiencing moderate growth, holding near the $82.00 per barrel mark.This increase is supported by forecasts from the International Energy Agency (IEA), according to which global oil demand will reach 103.2 million barrels per day in 2024, which is 1 million barrels more than in 2023. In the following years, the agency expects further growth in demand: up to 104.2 million barrels in 2025 and up to 105.0 million barrels per day in 2026. In parallel, the IEA predicts an increase in capital investments in the development of extractive capacities: after $ 538.0 billion was invested in this area in 2023, it is expected that in 2024 these investments will increase by at least 7%. This is especially true for non-OPEC+ countries, such as the United States.Resistance levels: 82.90, 85.10.Support levels: 81.10, ...

Analytical Forex forecast for EUR/USD, GBP/USD, NZD/USD and USD/EUR on Wednesday, June 5th
EUR/USD, currency, GBP/USD, currency, USD/JPY, currency, NZD/USD, currency, Analytical Forex forecast for EUR/USD, GBP/USD, NZD/USD and USD/EUR on Wednesday, June 5th EUR/USD: euro is losing ground after the May statistics on the German labor marketThe EUR/USD pair shows mixed dynamics, consolidating around the 1.0880 mark. Yesterday, the instrument showed a slight decrease, retreating from local highs on March 21, despite a limited amount of macroeconomic data from the eurozone and the United States. Investors drew attention to the increase in the number of unemployed in Germany in May from 11.0 thousand (revised from 10.0 thousand) to 25.0 thousand, while analysts predicted that the indicator would remain at the level of 10.0 thousand. The unemployment rate remained at 5.9%. According to the Federal Employment Agency, 702.0 thousand vacancies were opened in May, which is 65.0 thousand less than a year ago. At the same time, the shortage of qualified personnel remains in 183 out of 200 key professions. Experts fear that the problems in the German labor market may worsen in the medium term due to the deterioration of the demographic situation.Today, investors are focused on statistics on business activity in the services sector and industrial inflation in the eurozone. A meeting of the European Central Bank (ECB) will be held on Thursday at 14:15 (GMT+2), from which analysts expect an interest rate cut of 25 basis points to 4.25%. At the same time, the regulator may announce more cautious further steps, given the ongoing inflationary pressure in some sectors of the region's economy.Resistance levels: 1.0900, 1.0930, 1.0964, 1.1000.Support levels: 1.0863, 1.0842, 1.0820, 1.0800.GBP/USD: rhetoric of the Fed and the Bank of England is reflected in the dynamics of the pairThe GBP/USD pair has been growing for the second month in a row, updating the March high of 1.2817.Earlier, investors feared that the US Federal Reserve would abandon monetary policy easing this year due to rising inflationary pressures in the first quarter. However, the latest macroeconomic data encouraged them: in April, the key core index of private consumption expenditures fell from 0.3% to 0.2%, job growth slowed to 8.059 million, and the May index of manufacturing activity fell from 49.2 to 48.7 points. As a result of weakening inflation and a possible economic downturn, officials may switch to a "dovish" course, and most experts expect the first rate cut in September and another before the end of the year.The Bank of England, which previously planned to reduce the cost of borrowing in the summer, may postpone the adjustment to the end of the year, as in April the consumer price index rose by 2.3% instead of the expected 2.1%, and the economy remains stable: in May, business activity indices continue to grow, albeit more slowly. Additionally, the situation is complicated by the parliamentary elections scheduled for July 4, so officials have taken a break and do not comment on further actions.Resistance levels: 1.2817, 1.2890, 1.3061.Support levels: 1.2695, 1.2573, 1.2490.NZD/USD: problem mortgages in New Zealand increased by 25% since the beginning of the yearThe NZD/USD pair is showing moderate growth, recovering from a recent correction attempt, which did not allow it to gain a foothold at local highs from March 8. Now the quotes are testing the level of 0.6185, and investors are waiting for the publication of macroeconomic statistics from the United States. Today at 14:15 (GMT+2), the May report from ADP on private sector employment will be released, and at the end of the week, the final data from the US Department of Labor will be released. It is expected that the number of employees will decrease from 192.0 thousand to 173.0 thousand. At 16:00 (GMT+2), statistics on the ISM business activity index in the service sector will be published, the projected growth of which from 49.4 to 50.5 points may affect investors' expectations regarding the easing of the Fed's monetary policy by the end of the year. The main scenario assumes an interest rate cut of 25 basis points with a probability of 51.0% in September.Craig Rennie, head of policy at the New Zealand Council of Trade Unions, noted that changing tax conditions could stimulate a decrease in demand in the economy, as high-income companies would not be able to distribute funds among shareholders. In his opinion, regular changes in duties will be more useful for the economy than adjusting the interest rate. He stressed that although the increase in the cost of borrowing has somewhat reduced demand, it has also contributed to the accumulation of savings by citizens in conditions of high inflation. This is confirmed by data from the Reserve Bank of New Zealand, according to which the volume of non-performing housing loans in April increased by 7.7% to $ 1.9 billion. Since the beginning of the year, this figure has increased by $ 384.0 million, or 25.3%, and over the past 12 months — by $ 796.0 million, or 72.0%.Resistance levels: 0.6200, 0.6230, 0.6250, 0.6300.Support levels: 0.6175, 0.6152, 0.6130, 0.6100.USD/JPY: data on salaries and business activity in Japan met with a neutral reaction from investorsAgainst the background of the weakening of the US dollar and positive Japanese statistics, the USD/JPY pair is correcting downwards, trading near the level of 155.58.The yen is correcting after strengthening at the beginning of the week, and reports on wages and business activity were perceived by investors neutrally: in April, the total income of employees increased by 2.1% after the previous 1.0%, and the average annual salary increased by 2.1% instead of the projected 1.7%. Overtime pay decreased by 0.6%, which is almost the same as last year's 0.5%. Thus, workers' incomes and salaries increased in the spring, supporting the local recovery. The index of business activity in the service sector decreased from 54.3 to 53.8 points, remaining in the "green" zone and is unlikely to significantly affect quotes. In this situation, the Bank of Japan may continue to tighten monetary policy, although an interest rate increase is still unlikely.Resistance levels: 156.40, 158.40.Support levels: 154.80, ...

Analytical Forex forecast for EUR/USD, AUD/USD, USD/JPY and NZD/USD for Thursday, May 30, 2024
AUD/USD, currency, EUR/USD, currency, USD/JPY, currency, NZD/USD, currency, Analytical Forex forecast for EUR/USD, AUD/USD, USD/JPY and NZD/USD for Thursday, May 30, 2024 EUR/USD: German inflation puts pressure on the euroAgainst the background of the strengthening of the US dollar, the EUR/USD pair shows a corrective trend, trading at 1.0795 under the influence of German macroeconomic data.In May, the consumer price index in Germany decreased by 0.1%, which was lower than the 0.2% growth forecast by analysts, as well as the 0.5% figure recorded earlier. Despite this, the annual rate increased from 2.2% to 2.4%, and the EU-harmonized index increased from 2.4% to 2.8%. Thus, the necessary reduction in inflation to start adjusting interest rates in the EU has not yet been observed. If inflation continues to rise in other countries, the risks of tightening monetary policy will increase significantly, which may lead to the formation of a new downward trend in the EUR/USD pair. Traders' attention was also attracted by a slight increase in the GfK Group consumer confidence index in June, which rose from -24.0 to -20.9 points, exceeding the forecast of -22.5 points.Resistance levels: 1.0820, 1.0920.Support levels: 1.0770, 1.0670.AUD/USD: inflation statistics in Australia exceeded forecastsThe AUD/USD pair shows mixed results, remaining near the 0.6600 mark and the minimum values from May 24. Investors are waiting for the publication of tomorrow's US macroeconomic statistics on inflation, which is expected to clarify the prospects for a possible interest rate cut by the US Federal Reserve in the second half of 2024. Earlier, analysts expected a rate cut in September or November, predicting at least two cuts of 25 basis points during 2024. However, experts now believe that the reduction will happen once in December. In addition, the consumer confidence index rose from 97.5 points to 102.0 points in May, despite the projected decline to 96.0 points, which may complicate the fight against inflation for the US Federal Reserve.Meanwhile, the Australian dollar barely reacted to Wednesday's published data. The consumer price index rose from 3.5% to 3.6% in April, although 3.4% was expected. Inflation in Australia has reached a five-month high, increasing the likelihood that the Reserve Bank of Australia may raise rates again, given the significant deviation of the current consumer price index from the target level of 2.0%. Currently, most analysts believe that the regulator will not ease monetary policy this year, and some allow another increase in the interest rate.Resistance levels: 0.6622, 0.6646, 0.6667, 0.6700.Support levels: 0.6600, 0.6578, 0.6558, 0.6540.USD/JPY: Seiji Adachi clarified the condition for the interest rate correction in JapanThe USD/JPY pair is showing a moderate decline, retreating from the local highs reached on May 1 and weakening the uncertain bullish trend observed since the beginning of the current trading week. The instrument is testing the 157.15 level for a downward breakdown, while investors are preparing for the publication of important macroeconomic statistics from the United States and Japan.Recall that on Friday, Japan will present May data on the consumer price index in the Tokyo region: analysts expect that the indicator, excluding prices for fresh food, will increase from 1.6% to 1.9%. Also at 01:50 (GMT+2), retail sales data for April will be published, where growth is projected from 1.2% to 1.9%, and industrial production, which is likely to slow from 4.4% to 0.9%. The day before, Seiji Adachi, a member of the board of the Bank of Japan, said that the regulator could raise interest rates if a sharp drop in the yen would lead to an increase in consumer prices or affect inflation expectations. Adachi also stressed that premature measures should be avoided so as not to increase pressure on the national economy, which underlines the importance of a weak yen in determining the timing of the next monetary policy adjustment.Resistance levels: 157.50, 157.98, 158.43, 159.30.Support levels: 157.00, 156.50, 156.00, 155.50.NZD/USD: the uptrend remains relevantThe NZD/USD pair dropped to 0.6095 amid unfavorable economic statistics from New Zealand.The business confidence index published by ANZ Group showed a value of 11.2 points in May, which was lower than the expected 15.0 points and the previous indicator of 14.9 points. Businesses continue to feel the impact of the Reserve Bank of New Zealand's record high interest rate, which is at a 15-year high, which is holding back active investments. Representatives of the regulator have previously stressed the need to maintain a tight monetary policy in order to accelerate the achievement of inflation targets. In addition, in April, the number of building permits decreased by 1.9%, which was lower than the forecast of 1.5% and the previous value of -0.2%.Resistance levels: 0.6150, 0.6205, 0.6262.Support levels: 0.6070, 0.5992, ...

Analytical Forex forecast for EUR/USD, GBP/USD, NZD/USD and gold for Wednesday, May 22
EUR/USD, currency, GBP/USD, currency, NZD/USD, currency, Gold, mineral, Analytical Forex forecast for EUR/USD, GBP/USD, NZD/USD and gold for Wednesday, May 22 EUR/USD: the exchange rate tends to break out of the downward range of 1.0880–1.0560During the Asian session, the EUR/USD pair shows mixed dynamics, remaining near the level of 1.0850. Neutral macroeconomic data do not allow the euro to significantly strengthen its position.In April, the producer price index in Germany increased by 0.2%, as in the previous month, which was lower than the projected growth of 0.3%. This led to a decrease in the annual rate from -2.9% to -3.3%, against expectations of -3.2%. Such negative dynamics contribute to a further slowdown in consumer inflation, providing the European Central Bank (ECB) with an additional argument for lowering interest rates at the June meeting. The EU data also show diverse results: in March, the volume of construction decreased from 0.38% to 0.10%, while the labor cost index increased from 3.40% to 4.90% in the first quarter. The EU's trade balance increased from 22.8 billion euros to 24.1 billion euros in March.Resistance levels: 1.0885, 1.1010.Support levels: 1.0820, 1.0705.GBP/USD: annual UK inflation slowed to 2.3% in AprilThe GBP/USD pair is showing an upward trend, updating local highs since March 21. Investors are closely watching the UK's April inflation statistics. The consumer price index decreased from 3.2% to 2.3% year-on-year, exceeding expectations of 2.1%, and from 0.6% to 0.3% month-on-month, which also exceeded the forecast of 0.2%. The producer price index, excluding seasonal fluctuations, increased from 0.7% to 1.1%, which is slightly lower than the projected 1.2%. These data may encourage the Bank of England to begin easing monetary policy this summer, as previously mentioned by Ben Broadbent, deputy governor of the regulator, and Hugh Pill, chief economist.Yesterday, investors analyzed the May index of industrial orders from the Confederation of British Industrialists (CBI), which fell from -23.0 to -33.0 points, against expectations of -20.0 points. This was the fastest decline since November, but many manufacturers expect the situation to improve in the summer months, while not predicting a significant price increase. In the near future, the minutes of the next hearing of the inflation report will be published in the UK, which will help to understand the reaction of officials to the latest price data and clarify the prospects for a possible interest rate cut in the coming months. With the opening of the American session, investors' attention will switch to April statistics on sales in the secondary housing market in the United States, where growth is expected from 4.19 million to 4.21 million after a previous decrease of 4.3%.Resistance levels: 1.2734, 1.2771, 1.2810, 1.2850.Support levels: 1.2700, 1.2650, 1.2600, 1.2568.NZD/USD: New Zealand currency shows growth againThe NZD/USD pair is showing active growth, recovering from the "bearish" sentiment prevailing at the beginning of this week: the instrument is testing the level of 0.6125 for an upward breakdown, which is facilitated by the results of the meeting of the Reserve Bank of New Zealand (RBNZ).As expected, the regulator kept the interest rate at 5.50% and positively assessed the effect of the measures already taken to combat high inflation. RBNZ representatives expressed confidence that the current restrictive policy will reduce inflation to the target range of 1.0–3.0% by the end of 2024. The accompanying statement noted that the slowdown in prices in the service sector is slower than expected, so the transition to "dovish" rhetoric is not advisable yet. The pressure on the labor market is gradually easing, which leads to an increase in unemployment and lower wages, which also helps to reduce inflationary risks.Despite the market reaction to the RBNZ meeting, many investors are in a hurry to take profits, closing some long positions, preferring to wait for today's publication of the minutes of the May meeting of the US Federal Reserve. These documents may clarify the prospects for an interest rate cut by the US regulator in the second half of 2024. The current main scenario assumes the beginning of monetary policy easing in September or November, and at least two reductions of 25 basis points each are expected by the end of 2024.Resistance levels: 0.6130, 0.6152, 0.6183, 0.6200.Support levels: 0.6100, 0.6082, 0.6047, 0.6030.Gold market overviewThe price of gold has been steadily growing for the fourth month in a row: on Monday, quotes updated annual highs around 2449.89, but then rolled back, and the current positive dynamics is restrained by comments from US Federal Reserve officials.Investors had hoped that the publication of April inflation data in the United States would prompt the regulator to start lowering interest rates in September, but recent statements by Fed representatives disappointed the market. Economists recognized the decrease in inflationary pressure as a positive factor, but noted that the April data was not enough to correct monetary policy. The chairman of the US Federal Reserve for Supervision, Michael Barra, stressed that the data at the beginning of the year were "disappointing", so there are no grounds for lowering interest rates yet. In the evening, investors are waiting for the publication of the minutes of the last meeting of the US Federal Reserve's Open Market Committee, which may shed light on the prospects for further actions by the regulator and cause serious fluctuations in the market.Resistance levels: 2437.50, 2500.00, 2562.50.Support levels: 2348.00, 2250.00, ...
