PMI Recap: French October manufacturing PMI fell short of expectations at 53.5 vs 54 expected as supply chain issues remained a key feature once again. However, the services figure had been slightly better than consensus at 56.6 vs 55.5 expected with the composite reading matching consensus. Meanwhile, German PMIs saw a miss on the services front, with the manufacturing PMI coming ahead of expectations. Overall, Eurozone PMIs were slightly better than expected but not much in it.

EUR/USD: A softer USD sees the pair back within close proximity to the prior YTD low (1.1662), which on two occasions has curbed further upside. Therefore, the weekly close will be important for the pair as failure to make a close above may renew downside in the pair. However, should EUR/USD make a firm break, eyes will be on the psychological 1.1700 handle.

EUR/GBP: Bank of England commentary continues to confuse markets over the timing of a potential rate rise. Overnight, Bank of England Chief Economist Pill noted that inflation could top 5% in the months ahead, however, the Chief Economist had more crucially urged caution over the exact timing of a rate hike having stated that there may be too much excitement in the focus on rates right now. In turn, market pricing for a 25bps rate rise at the November meeting has fallen from 95% probability earlier in the week to a 55% probability. As such, the cross has bounced back from its weekly lows and thus maintaining its 0.8420-60 range.

    • Gold The uptrend has been given new life with yesterday’s bounce, which has seen the price push to $1840 for the first time in a month. This run of higher highs and higher lows continues to support a more bullish view, putting the November highs near $1860 into view. Tuesday’s low at $1806 would need to be breached to the downside to provide a short-term negative outlook, as this would end the run of higher lows witnessed over the past seven weeks.

Nonetheless the overall bullish view remains in place, and the 2011 highs above $100 per barrel are now in sight. Near-term support comes into play around $84, the October and November highs, and then below this in the region around $79. Source: ProRealTime
    • Note: There will be a maximum of 3 time units to the downside from the high before the next rally.
