Federal Reserve Rate Decision : FOMC Holds, Focus to March for Lift-Off

Risk markets are picking up a small in early trade in Europe as traders continue to digest Wednesday’s hawkish FOMC meeting. Post-FOMC price action saw US equities give back all their gains, while Asian stock markets closed heavily in the red with the Nikkei over 3% lower on the day. The hefty losses seen in early European turnover are now being erased as risk markets pick up a bid ahead of the first look at US Q4 GDP at 13.30 GMT today.

In the equity space, an early morning rally has seen most major indices pull back post-FOMC weakness with some now looking to turn positive for the session. The Nasdaq 100 is 0.1% to the good at 14,184 after touching a low of 13,870, the S&P 500 is flat at 4,345 after touching 4,270, while the FTSE 100 is trading at 7,485, flat on the day but up over 160 points from its nadir. As long as Monday’s low prints hold, equity markets may move higher going into the weekend.

The US dollar remains bid in London, bolstered by a strong US Treasury set-up. The interest rate-sensitive UST 2-year now yields 1.20%, up nearly 18 basis points post-FOMC, while the benchmark UST 10-year is quoted with a yield of 1.85%. The market is now pricing in five 0.25% rate hikes in the US this year, a supportive backdrop for the US dollar.

The US dollar continues to run hot and is the driver behind most US dollar pairs. GBP/USD is trading around 1.3425, its lowest level this year, while EUR/USD is below 1.1200. If EUR/USD breaks below the late November low of 1.1182, the pair will be back at levels last seen in June 2020.

In the commodity space, gold is coming under pressure and may well test $1,800/oz. in the near future, while oil remains bid on Russia/Ukraine political tension and is near its multi-year high. Gold remains within a basic trend channel, printing a series of short-term higher lows and higher highs, and will need to remain above $1,805/oz. if the precious metal is to push higher.

    • 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!
