US Dollar Charges Higher as Treasury Yields Surge and Crude Oil Soars. Where to Next?

 

US Dollar, DXY, Nasdaq, Gold, Crude Oil, WTI, PBOC, CAD, NOK - Talking Points

  • The US Dollar has found some legs as Treasury yields soared to new heights
  • APAC equities tank while crude oil leaps higher on more supply issues
  • US real yields rise on hawkish Fed bets. Will it boost USD through resistance?
Why the U.S. Dollar Is More Robust Than It Looks - Bloomberg

The US Dollar appears to have shrugged off recent weakness with Treasury yields continuing higher, underpinning the greenback. The 10-year note hit 1.89% while the 2-year traded at 1.076%, levels not seen since the pandemic began.

The increased expectations of higher rates across the curve have seen equities tank. The Nasdaq was down 2.6% in the cash session overnight and the futures contract has continued lower after the close. The S&P 500 and the Dow are lower but to a lesser extent.

APAC equites have also been hit, with the Japanese indices taking the brunt of the downturn, falling over 2% today.

Hong Kong shares were the best performing, close to flat on the day after the PBOC pledged more policy easing is on the cards after Monday’s rate cuts. Iron ore and other ferrous metals moved higher on the news.

The uptick in US rates is occurring at a time when inflation expectations are steady, driving up real yields. This has seen gold drift lower this week and it is currently trading near USD 1,811 an ounce, just above the week’s low of 1,806.

Conversely, oil continues to appreciate, making an 8-year high today. Crude was already bubbling higher on supply concerns emanating from the Houthi attack on the UAE yesterday.

Then Goldman released an upgrade to their outlook for black gold. They are predicting USD 105 a barrel in 2023 citing limited spare capacity.

Further adding to the squeeze, overnight there has been an explosion of a pipeline connecting the northern Iraqi oil fields to the Turkish port of Ceyhan. It had been hit previously in 2012.

It is estimated that the pipeline delivers more than 450k barrels a day, roughly 10% of Iraq’s output. Iraq is the second largest producer in OPEC+.

It’s being reported that the fire has been extinguished but it’s unclear when it will come back online.

The WTI futures contract has traded as high as USD 86.41 a barrel in Asian trade. The Canadian Dollar has been supported today but the Norwegian Krone is yet see a reaction at the time of going to print.

The US Dollar index (DXY) rose 0.5% in the North American session, reflecting appreciation against EUR, GBP, CHF, SEK, flat against JPY and weaker to CAD. These currencies make up the basket in the DXY index.

Looking ahead, The US will see a series of housing data released as well as the Canadian CPI numbers for December.

 

US Dollar Index (DXY) Technical Analysis

The DXY index broke key support at 95.518 last week before rallying back through it this week. This could now be pivot point support.

Support could also be at the previous lows and pivot points of 94.629, 94.561, 93.875 and 93.278.

Above the market, resistance might be at the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement level of the move down 96.938 to 94.629, currently at 95.06.

The previous highs at 96.462, 96.689 and 96.938 may also offer resistance.

    • Wheat Elliott Wave Analysis Function - Trend Mode - Trend Structure -Impulse wave Position - Wave A of (B) Direction - Wave A of (B) is still in play Details -  Wheat daily and H4 have been adjusted due to how fast and deep decline from 720’4 has emerged. The long-term forecast on the daily chart shows that the surge to 720’4 is part of the impulse wave from March 2022. We are now in wave (5) which is expected to emerge into a 3-wave structure. Price now appears to be in wave A after which it will correct upside for B before returning downside. Overview: Since late May, grain prices have been falling sharply, with Wheat shedding over 20% since May 28th, 2024. This decline is about to erase the gains made from mid-April to late May. The nearly one-month sell-off adds to the long-term decline from March 2022, when Wheat traded at 1364’4. Currently trading at 571’4, Wheat is likely to fall further toward 500 in the coming weeks.   Daily Chart Analysis: The decline from March 2022 is forming a bearish impulse wave structure in the primary degree. The 5th wave is completing a diagonal structure, which has been the most time-consuming among the actionary waves, lasting nearly 21 months. The price is currently in wave (5) of 5 (circled), which will likely evolve into a 3-wave structure targeting the 500 major psychological level.   H4 Chart Analysis: The H4 chart shows the sub-waves of wave (5), which is now close to completing its first leg - wave A of (5). A corrective bounce is expected to follow for wave B before the price turns downside for wave C of (5) toward 500, provided the 720’4 pivot is not breached. Wheat and other grains are overwhelmingly bearish and may continue in this direction for the next several weeks before major bullish corrections begin.   In conclusion, Wheat prices remain bearish with potential for further declines, targeting the 500 psychological level, contingent on the completion of the current corrective wave B and the subsequent wave C of (5).

    • TXN Elliott Wave Analysis Trading Lounge Daily Chart, Texas Instruments Inc., (TXN) Daily Chart TXN Elliott Wave Technical Analysis FUNCTION: Counter Trend MODE: Corrective STRUCTURE: Triangle POSITION: Wave {iv}. DIRECTION: Bottom in wave {iv}.   DETAILS: Looking for a triangle in wave {iv} of 3 as we have found resistance on TL2 at 200$.     TXN Elliott Wave Analysis Trading Lounge 4Hr Chart, Texas Instruments Inc., ( TXN) 4Hr Chart TXN Elliott Wave Technical Analysis FUNCTION: Counter Trend MODE: Corrective STRUCTURE: Triangle POSITION: Wave (e) of {iv}. DIRECTION: Bottom in (e).   DETAILS: Looking for wave (e) to be near completion to then resume higher and find support on top of 200$.   Welcome to our latest Elliott Wave analysis for Texas Instruments Inc. (TXN). This analysis provides an in-depth look at TXN's price movements using the Elliott Wave Theory, helping traders identify potential opportunities based on current trends and market structure. We will cover insights from both the daily and 4-hour charts to offer a comprehensive perspective on TXN's market behavior.   * TXN Elliott Wave Technical Analysis – Daily Chart* In our Elliott Wave analysis of Texas Instruments Inc. (TXN), we observe a counter-trend corrective pattern characterized by a triangle structure. TXN is currently positioned in wave {iv} of 3, suggesting a bottoming process in wave {iv}. The recent price action indicates that TXN has encountered resistance around the TL2 trendline at $200. This resistance could imply the formation of a triangle in wave {iv}, setting the stage for a potential resumption of the upward trend once the triangle completes. Traders should monitor the $200 level for signs of a breakout or further consolidation within the triangle.   *TXN Elliott Wave Technical Analysis – 4Hr Chart* On the 4-hour chart, TXN is following a counter-trend corrective mode within a triangle structure, specifically in wave (e) of {iv}. The current analysis suggests that wave (e) is nearing completion, which could signal the end of the triangle and the beginning of a move higher. The completion of wave (e) should ideally find support above the $200 level, aligning with the daily chart's indication of a possible upward resumption post-triangle. Traders should watch for the termination of wave (e) and the subsequent price action to confirm a bullish continuation.   Technical Analyst : Alessio Barretta Source : Tradinglounge.com get trial here!
