​​FX markets quiet ahead of US inflation figures​

Recommended Posts

Today’s US CPI figures have kept activity in check across FX markets, especially with a Fed decision following close behind tomorrow.

EUR/USD close to recent highs

Gains have stalled around $1.05 in EUR/USD, but the bounce is still intact, with a potential trend change still in the offing.

While gains have slowed in recent days, we have not yet seen a turn lower that might suggest a resumption of the downtrend. Instead, this consolidation may well lead to further upside, with this view remaining in place unless we see a drop back below $1.03.

Additional gains bring the late May/early June highs below $1.08 into view.

GBP/USD pushes back towards $1.23

GBP/USD remains solidly above rising trendline support from the October low, and has yet to show any sign of a reversal.

The pair has run into resistance just below $1.23, but above this the May/June highs around $1.26 come into view.

For the moment the pair has pulled away from trendline support from the October lows, and a dip even as far as $1.17 would still leave the trendline intact.

USD/JPY edges higher once again

USD/JPY has continued to stabilise after its bounce off the 200-day simple moving average (SMA), but a firmer move below the 200-day SMA would revive and strengthen the bearish outlook.

The pair now waits to see if the Federal Reserve (Fed) and US consumer price index (CPI) can deliver a reason to continue to back the bounce from the 200-day SMA, and which might see the pair push on above ¥140.00.

Should the pair fail to move on above ¥140.00 a lower high could be established, one that would suggest a fresh decline towards ¥136.00 and lower.

    • Stock market analysis and trading strategies: NASDAQ 100, Apple (AAPL), Tesla (TSLA), Amazon (AMZN), Nvidia (NVDA), Microsoft (MSFT), Meta Platforms (META), Netflix (NFLX), Alphabet (GOOGL)  Stock Market Summary: Wave (i) of v) of 1 of (5) of 1) as a general count for most stocks, however this will be the Elliott wave count for the SP500 and the Nasdaq 100. Some stocks will make new highs, and some won’t, but they will still have the same wave count and I will explain this in today’s video. That said there are stocks like Tesla that are different, however they will move the same on an intraday basis, just with different Elliott wave counts.

    • Thanks. A really interesting video and some interesting statistics and analysis. I haven't the time to go back and analyse whether a strong November increases the chance of there not being a Santa rally, although one of the slides highlights that the negative Santa Rally years were tied with poor November returns for the market such as 2000, 2008 etc which seems a contradiction.  Would I short and back against it happening? When it occurs in over 80% of years... absolutely not.  The Santa Rally – Christmas Growth in the Stock Market. (moneysandi.com)
