Daily Analysis: Dollar Falls, Gold Jumps on Dismal Data before the FED

Introduction

This article was posted on Wednesday, 16:25, UTC.

Wednesday Market Recap

Asset Current Value Daily Change
S&P 500 2436 -0.15%
DAX 12835 +0.44%
WTI Crude Oil 44.76 -3.72%
GOLD 1279.00 0.81%
Bitcoin 2630 -3.56%
EUR/USD 1.1277 0.60%

The usual pre-Fed trading fell apart today as the much worse than expected US CPI and Retail Sales reports caused turmoil before tonight’s important announcements. While a rate hike is still more than likely today, the continued deterioration of the consumer-related indicators could push the central banks towards a more cautious outlook. The Dollar got hit hard after the releases, while the shooting Virginia also triggered safe-haven buying in early trading. The Japanese Yen and gold were heavily bought, with the Japanese currency rising to a two-month high against the Greenback.

Gold, 4-Hour Chart Analysis

The Euro also gained ground on the Dollar, while the Great British Pound rallied has been weak after yesterday’s jump. Wage growth was dismal in the UK according to the Employment Report released today, and that weighed on the currency together with the risk-off sentiment. The Canadian Dollar and the Australian Dollar are also strong today, despite the mixed performance of the major commodities, as the Dollar weakness lifted the other majors. Oil and Copper are both lower today, as weakness seems to be returning to the Chinese market. The S&P 500 and the DAX, on the other hand, hit all-time highs overnight, with the NASDAQ still lagging following Friday’s flash correction, underlying the mixed nature of the current market action.

Cryptocurrencies

The coins are experiencing a sharp decline today in US trading, led by BTC once again, with Ethereum also following in lower this time around. With the long-term picture still showing overbought conditions, more corrective action wouldn’t surprise us. Ripple jumped higher today in early trading topping the $0.30 level before the broad decline began in the crypto-segment. All of the major are trading lower today, with Stratis, NEM, and Litecoin showing relative strength so far.

Technical Picture

The Chinese index failed to follow through following the rebound off the 3000 level in May and it traded in a bearish consolidation since then. The 3150 level acted as resistance lately, with the 3115 level serving as primary support right now.  A move below that level would warn of further weakness ahead, while bulls need a break-out above 3150, for the short-term rally to continue. The MACD indicator is also on the verge of a bearish cross.

    Hi Mate,
    Do you know what happened to Gold today?
    And in particular if you look to the intraday; early in the day there is a sudden spike up, for reasons completely unknown (to me) for Gold to crater down after the interest news. Do you know, and if you do, can you enlighten me so I can learn from this situation?
