    • Source: Bloomberg    Diego Colman | Market Analyst, New York | IG | Publication date: Friday 01 December 2023 04:57 The US dollar, as measured by the DXY index, extended its recovery on Thursday, boosted by a bounce in US treasury yields following remarks from San Francisco Federal Reserve president, Mary Daly indicating that the FOMC is not yet considering slashing borrowing costs. Daly's forceful position, which clashes with the more cautious posture embraced by other colleagues, highlights a widening chasm between the doves and the hawks. Upcoming market events   Source: DailyFX To address uncertainties regarding the broader central bank’s stance, traders should closely monitor Fed chair Jerome Powell’s speech at Spelman College on Friday. This event might serve as a platform for the FOMC chief to provide clarification on the monetary policy outlook. Hawkish comments endorsing higher interest rates for longer are likely to exert upward pressure on US yields, creating the right conditions for the dollar to prolong its nascent rebound. On the flip side, a lack of pushback on dovish market pricing ( many rate cuts for 2024 already discounted) could drag yields, weighing on the greenback.

Brent crude oil – technical trading view Source: IG The share price of brent crude has formed an inverse head and shoulders reversal pattern (shaded grey). The reversal pattern suggests that the near-term downtrend is now reversing into a short-term uptrend. A close above 82.60, the neckline, would confirm the pattern. In this scenario, 87.20 becomes the initial upside resistance target from the move, while a close below the 80.60 level might be used as a stop loss indication.     This information has been prepared by IG, a trading name of IG Markets Limited.
