China’s Retail Sales Growth Impact & Forecast

The Chinese economy is going through a difficult time due to the spread of the novel coronavirus infection (COVID-19). Meanwhile, China faces serious challenges from soaring energy prices. Coal and natural gas prices have soared over the past few months. As a result, the government has demanded that the private sector be restricted from working during peak hours.

However, according to data released by the National Bureau of Statistics, the country’s economy is in relatively good shape. Since October, retail sales in China have increased by 4.9%. This is higher than the average of 3.5%. It was also relatively worse than the previous 4.4%. Meanwhile, according to data, industrial production increased by 3.5% in October. This is better than the average of 3.0% and the previous 3.1%. Sentiment in the Chinese real estate market is being shaken by a deepening debt crisis as real estate giants China Evergrande and Kaisa Group face default. “We expect policymakers to take more easing measures to prevent growth from falling too much,” said Oxford’s Kuijs, adding that weaker demand is driving the broader industry slowdown rather than just supply constraints. Weakening demand is causing not only supply constraints, but also a broader industry slowdown, he added.

Policy sources and analysts told Reuters that China’s central bank will be cautious about easing monetary policy to stimulate the economy as slowing economic growth and rising factory inflation fuel fears of stagflation. NBS spokeswoman Fu Linghui said at a briefing in Beijing on Monday that signs of stagflation are caused by short-term factors such as high global commodity prices. Capital investment continued to slow, according to 4,444 NBS data, up 6.1% in the first 10 months compared to the same period a year ago, up from a 6.2% increase in Reuters and a 7.3% increase in January-September.

EUR/JPY broke its eighth straight day of decline and is hovering around the 130.00 level

The pair has been under pressure from an upward US dollar backed by inflation data. In addition, the adjusted decline in US Treasury yields also contributed to the negative trend. The US dollar will strengthen on Tuesday as it continues to hold its 16-month high near 95.40. Meanwhile, US Treasury yields were moderated by mixed market sentiment ahead of the release of US retail sales data this afternoon.

In addition to data on US retail sales, market sentiment will also be influenced by future data on the gross domestic product (GDP) in the euro area and a speech by European Central Bank (ECB) President Christine Lagarde. According to previous data, industrial production in the Euro zone fell 0.2% m/m in September and 5.2% in the last 12 months. Japan reported weak third-quarter GDP data and Bank of Japan (BOJ) Governor Kuroda hinted that the COVID-19 financing program could be phased out.

Meanwhile, the dollar continued to strengthen. The reason could be a hint that the Fed will cut rates at the November 23rd FOMC meeting. This has weakened the yen’s attractiveness as a safe haven. The pair’s price movement could be a tailwind due to US President Joe Biden’s $1 trillion bipartisan infrastructure bill.

EUR/USD accelerates decline below 1.1300

The EUR/USD exchange rate has been heavy this week. On Tuesday, it fell in the US and expanded in Asia. Now falls faster and reaches a few stops below 1.13. The US dollar sold in almost all directions and continued higher on Tuesday US time. The recent rise in the US dollar can be attributed to renewed concerns about the Chinese Evergrande and disproportionate sentiment in Asian indices following US-US trade news headlines. Chinese media previously reported that online sales platform Evergrande had closed some departments, further exacerbating the risk of default. Meanwhile, U.S. Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo said

China is not keeping up with its Phase 1 trade deal.

Additionally, the dollar is still supported by strong US retail sales data, which has reinforced expectations of Fed tightening, pushing Treasury yields up the curve. U.S. retail sales increased for the third straight month in October, up 1.7% year-over-year. 1.4% is expected.

Currently, market participants don’t know how much, in a few months, politicians may worry about inflation. Central bankers are lagging behind the curve and appear unpredictable in monetary policy consistently over time. Hedging is a logical consequence, which again increases demand for high-yielding assets like the dollar that are ready to continue the rally.

Meanwhile, macroeconomic data reflected global uncertainty. A survey of Germany’s ZEW found a sharp drop in ratings on the current situation in November, but an improvement in economic sentiment. The country’s inflation was confirmed at 4.6% y/y in October and the wholesale price index jumped to 15.2% y/y. In October, the lowest level since November 2011, Richard Curtin, chief economist for the Surveys of Consumers, said: “Consumer confidence that inflation and effective policies to mitigate its impact has not yet been developed,” said Richard Curtin. “In early November, consumer sentiment fell to the lowest level in ten years.”.

RBNZ Survey – Inflation is expected to rise & to be around 3%

Aggressive polls at the Reserve Bank showed a very sharp rise in expectations for future inflation. The results of the RBNZ’s latest quarterly forecast survey could fuel speculation that the RBNZ could raise its official cash rate by up to 50 basis points in a November 24 interest rate review. Click here for details of the survey results. The RBNZ has been tracking this survey very closely and in some cases was very strongly influenced by the results of interest rate decisions. At least for the latest results, next week’s OCR should increase by 25 basis points to 0.75%. Satish Ranchhod, a senior economist at Westpac, said the latest poll, along with other recent data, “shows increased inflationary pressures in the medium term.” Most notable in the survey is two-year inflation expectations.

In general, these numbers do not fluctuate much between surveys. However, in the latest survey, inflation expectations rose from 2.27% three months ago to 2.96% in two years. This is a huge step according to the criteria of this study.

The 2.96% value is the highest since the 3.00% value in the same survey in June 2011. Prior to June 2011, the same survey had to go back to the early 1990s to find higher numbers. Short-term inflation expectations for one year have risen from 3.02% three months ago to 3.7% in the latest survey.

Spotlight on Retail Sales of Pound and Canadian Dollar

GBP/CAD is still moving lower and is trading moderately near 1.6990 early on Friday. The cross hit a one-month high the day before retreating from the 50-day EMA. At the same time, a bearish top candle can be observed during the daily timeframe, indicating further weakness in the asking price.

Key points:

  • GBP/CAD continues to retreat from the 50-day EMA to the previous resistance level. The bullish MACD signal is testing further bearishness, with the 200-day EMA and end-September levels challenging for buyers.
  • UK retail sales are likely to reverse the month-on-month decline, raising concerns for the Bank of England over rate hikes.


Day Ahead

EUR: There is a relatively calm day ahead in the economic calendar. The focus is data on wholesale inflation in Germany for October. A new surge will test transition theory while ECB Governor Lagarde seeks to bring the status quo to the market. On monetary policy, ECB President Lagarde will also speak later in the afternoon. As of this writing, the euro is up 0.01% to $1.1372.

Pound: The economic calendar is having a busy day. This morning’s focus is the October retail sales of units. The pound is expected to have a strong impact following Wednesday’s inflation data. As of this writing, the pound is up 0.04% to reach $1.3499. The future of economic power is a quiet day. Economic data is limited to housing data and has little impact on the dollar. However, it is expected that the chatter of the FOMC members will also have an effect. FOMC members Waller and Clarida will perform today. The US Dollar Spot Index closed down 0.30% on Thursday at 95.544.

Gold price outlook: XAU/USD Bulls bullish amid weak US dollar in Asia

Asia’s gold is rallying as the US dollar offset some of its overnight gains as the US dollar breaks new cyclical highs following the re-election of Fed Chairman Jerome Powell. According to ANZ Bank analysts, the market immediately began pricing in relation to a gradual reduction in asset purchases and interest rate hikes through June. “This caused gold to plummet after 10-year Treasury yields raised more than 8 basis points.”

Meanwhile, yellow metals were supported by rising idle winds. “This ultimately catalyzed the company to break out of a months-long decline from historical highs, driven by a significant wave of CTA short coverage and growing Chinese demand for gold, explained analysts at TD Securities. “But we do note that the battle between high inflation and market prices caused by central bank inflation is not over.”

Going forward, the Fed minutes will be events for the dollar and yellow metal. Markets will be looking for new clues as to when to raise interest rates on how quickly the Fed can shrink. “The protocol will undoubtedly reflect a variety of risk perspectives, but most officials don’t think they will be in a hurry to raise rates given the massive net job loss and expected slowing inflation, said analysts at TD Securities.

USD/JPY rise above 115.00 when bullish track hits 44-month high

The USD/JPY bull is breathing around 115.10 after a spike that broke a multi-month high earlier on Wednesday. At the same time, the yen is struggling to extend its two-day rally amid falling US Treasury yields. The 10-year U.S. Treasury yield fell 0.8 basis points (bps) from its highest level since October 22, or about 1.65% at the latest, amid a lack of significant data/events. Yields jumped to a one-month high before mixed US data stopped bonds rising. Geopolitical concerns and recent COVID-19 concerns appear to be playing a challenging role for USD/JPY buyers in recent times.

Japan’s geopolitical tensions with China are escalating over issues related to Vietnam. The defense ministers of Japan and Vietnam reached an agreement on the 10th that “they are opposed to secretly mentioning the sea in response to a unilateral attempt to change the status quo in the region said Kyodo News.” The Netherlands is experiencing a COVID-19 crisis and has recently announced regional closures, but the situation has not improved, driving demand for the Japanese yen, especially amid falling yields.

“The Netherlands started transporting COVID-19 patients across the border to Germany on Tuesday to ease pressure on Dutch hospitals, which are scaling back regular care to deal with a surge in COVID-19 cases,” said Reuters. Also positive for the JPY could be the improvement in COVID-19 conditions at home and the government’s readiness to help the nation overcome the pandemic led economic hardships. Recently, Nikkei reported that Japan will allocate about 600 billion yen ($5.2 billion) from its fiscal 2021 supplementary budget to support advanced semiconductor manufacturers including the world’s No. 1 contract chipmaker, Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co (TSMC), per Reuters. Against this backdrop, US equity futures are struggling to maintain their rebound from their two-week lows, while Asia Pacific stocks are trading alongside the Japanese Nikkei 225, down 0.80% at press time.

USD/JPY could see further declines when considering the consolidation of returns along with a cautious outlook ahead of major US data/events.

EUR/GBP hovers around 0.8400, ECB’s Lagarde and BOE’s Bailey keep an eye on

EUR/GBP remained bearish in the early hours of Thursday morning in Europe. Cross-currency pairs are approaching their annual lows recorded on Monday as fears over coronavirus in the eurozone are resurfaced. Record high cases in Germany, followed by Austria and the Netherlands, have resulted in multiple warnings reminiscent of the blockade in the region. Coronavirus infections broke records in parts of Europe on Wednesday as Europe became the epicenter of the epidemic that caused new travel restrictions. It is worth noting that the resurgence of the virus eases pressure on the European Central Bank (ECB) to follow the Western banks and thus puts further downward pressure on EUR/GBP.

In a recent commentary, Boštjan Vasle, a member of the Governors’ Council and Governor of the Central Bank of Slovenia, along with politicians Fabio Panetta and Robert Holzmann, ignored the rate hike negotiations. In contrast, European Central Bank governor and Bundesbank president Jens Weidmann said on Wednesday that inflation risks dominate in Germany and the rest of the eurozone. With block wrestling with covid, the UK is not far behind as daily infections exceed 43,000 and virus deaths drop to 149. However, Sky News cites UK health experts to point out the risk of a surge in COVID-19 cases in the new year.

Coronavirus pessimism and consequently increased pressure on the European Central Bank (ECB) to expand monetary easing, and in contrast to optimistic UK fundamentals, recent headlines on Brexit suggest the resilience of the pound I support it. Downing Street spokesperson #10 said there were significant differences between the UK and EU views on Northern Ireland, but British Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s willingness to work hard to address the issue is encouraging in the market. . But British politicians also agreed with Irish Prime Minister Michael Martin that Article 16 would not come into force until negotiations broke down.

GBP/JPY: Brexit, full-fledged bear dominating below 153.00 on COVID-19 chatter

GBP/JPY licks the cut at the 152.70 area after hitting a week-long high before hitting a two-week low of 152.47 ahead of the London opening on Friday. The Cross saw a double attack as it served food to bears amid fears of coronavirus and Brexit-related concerns. 4,444 French fishermen prepare to shut down Channel Tunnels and major ports on Friday to celebrate their disappointment over the UK’s fishing license regulations.

The British government has already urged politicians not to use illegal means, but this is unlikely to stop France’s outrage.
On the positive side, Maroš Šefchovic’s visit to London, an EU exit officer, is a British diplomat if both parties agree on a border protocol with Northern Ireland (NI), which has recently shown positive progress. It is worth noting that the previous day’s refusal of Bank of England (BOE) Governor Andrew Bailey’s inflation concerns reduces the likelihood of a rate hike and also affect GBP / JPY prices.
Or, Japan’s recent announcement and Moody’s rating outlook are adding to more robust inflation data to further drive the yen’s appreciation.

“If a new coronavirus variant is identified, we will revisit border control as needed,” said Hirokazu Matsuno, Chief Cabinet Secretary of Japan, according to Reuters. As for data, Japan’s consumer price index (CPI) rose from 0.1% year-on-year to 0.5% in November, and fresh food CPI fell from 0.4% in market forecasts to 0.3%. 0, 1% faster. In addition, CPI ex Food and Energy were 0.3% of expectations on an annual basis.

Elsewhere, concerns about the Fed’s rate hikes at the wrong time are squeezing market sentiment and supporting the US dollar’s demand for safe haven. However, the Covid19 issue has spread outside Europe’s first horror zone due to concerns about a variant of the official name B.1.1.529, which is related to South Africa and is unaffected by the vaccine. For this reason, the World Health Organization (WHO) and UKHSA held a special session on Friday.

Sentiment on 10-year Treasuries yields on US Treasuries fell 8 basis points (bps) to 1.565%, extending Wednesday’s recession from its monthly highs and S & P 500 futures falling 1.0% at the latest.

GBP/USD remains weak below 1.3350 amid omicron concerns and Brexit concerns

GBP/USD is trading moderately below 1.3350, consolidating from its 11-month low of 1.3278, with risk sentiment improving slightly. Despite the risk reset, the risk remains downward biased against the majors as they continue to face the latest Omicron covid and ongoing Brexit issues.

Risk sentiment took a hit in early Asia, and concerns over the latest covid variant shook the market, propelling the overall rebound of the US dollar. South Africa’s recent surge in COVID-19 cases, which appears to have been triggered by a new strain, is urging countries around the world to impose new restrictions. However, Dror Mezorah, head of the coronavirus department at Hadassah University Hospital in Ein Karem, said the clinical status of people infected with Omicron is encouraging.

Despite risk recovery, sentiment around the pound can remain compromised by ongoing Brexit concerns. Vice-President of the European Commission, Margaritis Schinas, said Britain needed to resolve the post-Brexit immigration issue on Saturday.

Meanwhile, French President Emmanuel Macron attacked British Prime Minister Boris Johnson in a letter tweeted Friday and accused him of being “not serious.” This is in light of the ongoing tensions surrounding the Franco-British fishery. We will continue to lead the update of Omicron Covid variants and their impact on risk sentiment on Monday’s UK and US economic calendars. Investors are trying to reassess the Bank of England’s (BOE) rate hike expectations in light of recent Covid claims. This could be a further downside to the UK currency.

Options market USD/CAD turns most bearish in last two weeks & expecting volatility in future

WTI crude fell to $70.40 in an early two-day rally on Tuesday. While the 2-day symmetrical triangle limits Black Gold’s recent move, adding 50 HMA to the RSI’s decline and the upper barrier is encouraging for sellers. However, a clear downward break of the triangular support level near $69.20 at the time of issue was necessary for oil sellers to regain control.

After that, a Friday low of $68.30 will attract the market’s attention before lowering the WTI bearish to a September low of around $67 and a July low of around $65. On the other hand, the rise in commodity prices will be a nutritious nut around $72.00 including the triangular resistance and 50 HMA. Even if the price crosses $72, Friday’s high of $74 could provide an additional filter before oil moves up to $77.60. This implies an upside on the 25th of November.
The options market scenario supports USDCAD sellers ahead of today’s testimony of Canada’s GDP and Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell.

The reason for the bearish trend may be related to the cautious optimism of the market on Monday. However, recent doubts about the ability of the vaccine to tame a South African Covid variant known as Omicron support US $ / Canadian dollar buyers. With that in mind, the USD / CAD recorded a 0.30% daytime rise of about 1.2790 at the time of the press.

USD/JPY is recovering from a nearly two-month low and is climbing above the 113.00s mid-point


USD/JPY maintained its footing in pre-European trading and last traded near its daily high at 113.60. After overnight volatile price movements, the USD/JPY pair gained some positive dynamics on Wednesday and found support from several factors. Global risk sentiment has stabilized slightly as investors decide to wait and see if the new strain of Omicron corona virus will ultimately hamper the economic recovery. This is evidenced by a good recovery in the stock market, which weakened the safe Japanese yen and acted as a headwind for major currencies.

Key Notes:

The combination of supporting factors continued to help USD/JPY recover from a two-month low.

A modest recovery in risk sentiment eroded the safe yen and maintained the favor.

The bulls also sensed a rise in US bond yields, but a devaluation of the US dollar could limit returns
The Bulls also turned to a subsequent rebound in US Treasury yields, helped by restrictive comments from Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell. When testifying in front of the Senate Banking Commission, Powell said it was time to get off the floor and it would be appropriate to consider ending the asset purchase expansion perhaps a few months earlier. He added that the risk of persistently high inflation is increasing and high inflation is expected by next year.

In response to Chairman Powell’s remarks, short-term financial markets have begun evaluating the possibility of a rate hike of at least 50 basis points through the end of 2022. This, in turn, was seen as a key factor in continuing to support US bond yields. Despite interest rate hikes driven by more aggressive Fed tightening, the US dollar has so far struggled to entice meaningful purchases. This could deter traders from displaying aggressive bullishness and limit the continued recovery of the USD/JPY pair from its near two-month low. Market participants are now eagerly awaiting US economic reports including ADP report and ISM manufacturing PMI. A joint speech by FRS Chairman Jerome Powell and US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen at the House Financial Services Committee is also expected to affect the strength of the dollar. Going forward, traders will consider developments surrounding the coronavirus saga and broader market risk sentiment to capitalize on some of the opportunities associated with the USD/JPY pair.

USD/JPY pair may return to 113.00 amid falling yields


USD/JPY rebounded to 113.00 during its first open in Tokyo on Thursday, struggling to defend its first of a three-day advance. The yen appears to be receiving signals from the dollar’s rebound and a surge in global market volatility reflecting recent moves. But the Fed’s next move and eagerness to put safety at risk amid mixed fears of the Omicron crisis are keeping the Japanese currency at the top of the safe haven list and raising doubts among bull markets.

USD/JPY hit an intraday high and fell near its two-month low, during the pre-NFP trade downturn, markets are sluggish and mixed signals from the Fed add to the hesitation.


The US is considering extending the shelf life of masks after marking the first Omicron case. The OECD is downgrading its global growth projections, with Japan’s GDP expected to rise to 1.8% in 2021 from 2.5% in previous projections.
While reiterating concerns about inflation, Fed Chairman Jerome Powell said he still believes inflation will “fall significantly” in the second half of 2022, while speaking out against a Senate committee. In contrast, New York Federal Reserve Governor John C. Williams said the New York Times said Omicron could extend the supply-demand mismatch, leaving some inflationary pressure.

The 10-year Treasury yield is under pressure near its two-month low at around 1.42% at the time of release, while S&P 500 futures are trading up 0.30% since the Wall Street benchmarks released. But the promise of safety is supported by the latest news about corona virus options in South Africa. Following the first Oh Micron incident in the United States, the Joe Biden administration has put pressure on people to expand the rules for wearing masks on public transportation. “The administration of President Joe Biden will extend the requirement for travelers to wear masks on planes, trains, buses, and airports and train stations by mid-March to address the current risk of Omicron as reported by Reuter. Add to that risk shift and could be the latest economic forecast from the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), which suggests that global GDP will grow by 5.6% in 2021 (previously 5.7%) and 4.5% in 2022. According to Reuters, it is 3.2% in 2023.

NZD/USD stays directed towards 0.6710 supports after softer China data, US NFP eyed

NZD/USD remained bearish near the intraday low of 0.6786 since the Chinese Caixin PMI released early on Friday. At the same time, the kiwi pair reflects disappointing market sentiment and also responds to soft data ahead of key data on US non-farm payroll (NFP). China Caixin Services PMI for November fell to 52.1 from below 53.8, and the composite PMI also fell to 51.2 from 51.5 in the same month. At the same time, indicators of private activity differ from the official values published earlier this week.

Much of the bearish sentiment is adding to the broader strength of the US dollar in hopes of a faster contraction in the Federal Reserve after politicians appeared hawkish in their final speech before the silence began this Saturday. Key proponents of easing faster paybacks, which also fuel fears of inflation, include San Francisco Federal Reserve Bank (FRS) Governors Mary Daley and Thomas Barkin Richmond.

Fed’s hawkish outlook, as well as a weaker-than-expected result for the week’s early and ongoing US unemployment claims, a dismal job cut for November applicants, also reinforced hopes for a faster austerity policy and favorable returns from the Fed. The Wall Street indicator also posted a consolidated weekly loss the previous day, but it should be noted that S&P 500 futures and Asia Pacific stocks fell earlier on Friday.

The reason may have to do with the hopes of US politicians to avoid a government shutdown on Saturday. Also positive for kiwi prices may be recent optimism about the search for a cure for a South African strain of coronavirus called Omicron. Meanwhile, Beijing’s remarks about the EUUS’s recent dislike of China and the first phase of trade negotiations and tariffs seem to challenge risk appetite. In a similar vein, caution has been created ahead of the US employment report.

AUD / USD defends 0.7000, prepares for RBA omissions, PBOC RRR falls in stronger yields
The AUD / USD rose slightly to 0.701015 during the Asian session on Monday, licking the wounds after the sharp daily decline since early May. Optimistic views on the Australian economy, expectations for a rate cut by the People’s Bank of China (PBOC), and tomorrow’s Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) as Fed linked chatter dragged the Australian pair to new lows in 2021. Preparations recently police officers. Careful optimism in the market can be on the same line. Prior to the RBA meeting, Bloomberg released a poll stating that “The Reserve Bank of Australia is likely to be the last meeting of the year.”

On the other hand, ANZ said: “China’s Prime Minister Li Keqiang has promised the International Monetary Fund (IMF) to reduce the reserve requirement ratio (RRR) without specifying a date. Possible reconstruction by default.” In addition to RBA and PBOC chatter, optimistic printouts of second-tier data at home also supported the AUD / USD price. However, Australia’s TD stock inflation rate rose more than 0.2% to 0.3% in November, with ANZ job ads rising from 6.2% last month to 7.4%.

In addition, the hope of finding a cure for a variant of South Africa’s Covid known as Omicron is less dangerous than initially feared, adding to rumors that it has fueled market sentiment and AUD / USD prices increase. After first hitting Europe and the United Kingdom, the virus strains are strengthening their grip to reach major world countries such as the United States and China. However, it should be noted that scientists around the world are optimistic about treatments. Recently, senior US doctor Anthony Fauci has confirmed that Pfizer’s drug against Omicron is effective. Meanwhile, the news that chewing gum can contain the spread of the virus and the UK’s treatment efforts are also hopeful for distributors.

In addition, Australian Finance Minister Josh Frydenberg’s comment was positive for the AUD / USD rate. According to Reuters, policymakers may revise Australia’s 2022 GDP forecast during a mid-year budget update. It is noteworthy that prices fell sharply on Friday as the US dollar suffered a sudden drop in non-farm payroll (NFP) while trading the unemployment rate collapse. Expectations for the Federal Reserve’s rate hike were also raised by comments from President St. James Bullard. “We may consider raising interest rates before the cut is complete,” policymakers said. Wall Street’s benchmark closed negative, but Friday’s US Treasury 10-year yield fell about 10 basis points (bps) to 1.35%, the lowest level since late September.  In the future, risk catalysts and pre-RBA sentiment could boost AUD / USD prices on a bright calendar.

How might Reserve Bank of Australia decision on Interest rates affect AUD/USD?

As with the first Tuesday of every month, the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) is ready to announce its latest monetary policy meeting and interest rate decision around 03:30 GMT. The RBA is expected to keep its benchmark interest rate at 0.10% and unchanged its weekly $40 billion bond purchases. Weaker recent third-quarter inflation data from Australia and a stronger wage price index appear to help policymakers keep the status quo.

However, due to concerns arising from the South African covid variant, AUD/USD traders should pay close attention to the RBA exchange rate table for clear guidance given the oversold trend of the Australian currency pair near its 2021 lows.

Key notes:

AUD/USD Price Analysis: Bulls hope to test the 0.71

AUD/USD pattern. RBA  Reserve Bank of Australia further declines, risk-free preview: market participants await more stringent hints
AUD/USD reached an intraday high near 0.7055 ahead of a major RBA decision early on Tuesday. The Australian currency pair appears to be cautiously preparing for RBA commentary which may be depressing amid bullish markets. It should be noted, however, that Australian Health Minister Greg Hunt has recently welcomed the introduction of a coronavirus vaccine in Australia, thus implying a more robust RBA statement.

However, AUD/USD traders will pay little attention to the RBA’s ruling unless the central bank cites significant catalysts or hints for a decline in bond buying in February. Still, optimism about the country’s vaccination program could help the couple maintain their recent gains after monetary policy decisions.

Technically, AUD/USD is holding from the November 2020 bottom in RSI oversold conditions. However, the correction retreat remains within the 5-week trend downtrend channel. The August 2021 bottom near 0.7105 attracts short-term buyers ahead of the event, while the convergence of 10DMA and the upper line of the specific channel near 0.7125 are tough nuts for the bulls.

AUD/USD holds up to 0.7170 despite new sentiment challenge

AUD/USD fell to 0.7120 after hitting a one-week high in Wednesday’s early Asian session. A new challenge to the pre-risk sentiment before is bullish, but the Australian technical breakout of a major hurdle gives buyers hope in a quiet session with no significant data/events.

AUD/USD is rallying to its weekly high after two days of gains. Yields have fallen and US stock futures remain moderate amid mixed concerns. America, Russia and Sino-American Stories are battling a retreat from the horrors of Omicron.
A bright calendar, market expectations for Friday’s US CPI, indicates risk factors for a new impulse.
The US warns Russia of sanctions and aids Ukraine with military force if the Kremlin invades Kiev. A senior US State Department official said on Tuesday that the Biden administration was “focused on how to respond to the new German government if Russia invades Ukraine.” A US State Department official said on Tuesday. Reuters.

The US boycott of the 2022 Beijing Olympics is a bad sign for China, as Dragon Nation warns Washington of the consequences. In addition, concerns about companies facing a real estate crisis in China, such as Evergrande and Kaisa, are waning market optimism. In contrast, easing concerns over the South African strain of coronavirus, dubbed Omicron, and hopes for further stimulus from China are encouraging AUD/USD buyers. Against this backdrop, the 10-year U.S. Treasury yield surged to 1.47%, down 2 basis points to 1.47% in two days, and S&P 500 futures struggling to keep up with the monthly benchmark. Continually, the lack of critical data/events keeps the risk catalyst in the driver’s seat. However, the latter risk factor could trigger the consolidation of AUD/USD gains due to the state of the risk indicator for that pair.

AUD/USD broke through the major barriers north of around 0.7110, which consists of the 10DMA and the upper line of the 5-week-old downtrend channel. However, the MACD signal shows a bearish bias decline and the RSI is rebounding again from its oversold zone, and the pair’s recovery is breaking out of the horizontal zone, including around 0.6990 recorded in November 2020 and December 2021. Thus, AUD/USD bullish is set to wrestle with the 0.7170 resistance that spanned the September lows and last week’s highs.

EUR/USD is still at risk of Omicron Covid

EUR/USD fell on prospects that the EU will become the epicenter of the new covid strain, Omicron. As of this writing, EUR/USD is trading from 1.1277 to the lows of 1.1273 and 1.1286, with little or no change throughout the day in the early-week range.

According to the European Center for Disease Control and Prevention (ECDC), at least 6,430 cases of the strain have been confirmed in 70 countries since the discovery in late November. This option is said to be becoming dominant in Europe. Although European countries first reported cases of the disease, this strain has not yet been found across the continent.

Meanwhile, concerns over new options boosted risk sentiment on Monday and the FTSE 100 closed 0.73% lower at 654. The S&P 500 closed 0.9% lower at 4,668.97 on similar margins. The Nasdaq Composite Index fell 1.4% to 15,413.28, and the Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 0.9% to 35,650.95. The yield on the 10-year U.S. Treasury fell 8 basis points to 1.41%, and the yield on the 2-year Treasury bond fell 3 basis points to 0.63%. EUR/USD reduced the loss to around 25 pips to 1.1290.

This week the central bank will be in the spotlight. “Until now, the European Central Bank (ECB) considered inflation to be temporary, but it is becoming more and more elastic,” said ANZ Bank analyst. The analyst continued: “The US Federal Reserve has recently changed its mind on inflation and it is very likely that the ECB will change its stance at its meeting later this week. Inflation in the euro area is high, with consumer prices currently at a record 4.9%, well above the 2% target.” “Unlike the United States, the economic recovery in Europe is much more fragile and the region is currently experiencing a wave of omicron cases. At this stage, the ECB expects inflation to fall to 1.5% in 2023 and will soon release its inflation forecast for 2024, analysts explained.
