- In a breathtaking turn of events, the US Dollar Index (DXY) soared above the 102.00 mark last month. However, it didn’t manage to maintain that altitude and seemed to struggle with the weight of its own performance.
The index came face-to-face with the next challenge at 102.60, but whether it succeeded in overcoming that hurdle remains a thrilling question. Despite a potential threat from the 200-day SMA at 103.78, the Dollar held on.
- On the Gold front, the stage was set by interest rate speculations and an impressive 2.4% surge in the US economy’s annualized growth. The ghost of aggressive rate hikes was successfully exorcised, at least for now, fostering an environment where the Gold market could thrive.
However, the expected rate cuts for the following year added to the drama, leaving us on the edge of our seats as we watched Gold prices hover precariously between economic events and anticipated rate changes.
- Last month, the Euro-Dollar pair displayed an intriguing performance. Despite slipping to 3-week lows near 1.0940, it managed a last-minute comeback, finishing the month slightly above the 1.1000 mark. The long-term outlook for the pair remained optimistic, provided it kept its footing above the 200-day SMA at 1.0718.
- The Euro-Dollar pair performed an interesting dance last month. It stumbled, reaching 3-week lows near the 1.0940 mark, only to recover and end the month a touch above the 1.1000 mark.
Despite the turmoil, as long as the pair managed to maintain its balance above the 200-day SMA, currently sitting at 1.0718, the future held promise. The suspense as to whether the pair could dive towards the 1.0900 regions added to the plot, offering investors a nail-biting thriller.
- The British Pound had its work cut out last month. The initial resistance levels spotted at 1.2878/83 and 1.2997 set the stage for a possible Sterling showdown.
The pair risked falling to the 55-DMA and price support at 1.2676/58, yet the possibility of fresh buyers stepping in to invigorate the broader uptrend created an interesting dynamic. Only time would tell if the Sterling had the strength to reverse the core uptrend or if further decline awaited.
- The Australian Dollar had a tough time keeping up with the USD’s strength last month. Falling to a nearly three-week low, it became evident that the AUD was feeling the heat.
As the market keenly awaited the release of the US Core PCE Price Index, it was clear that the AUD/USD pair was under the spotlight. The drama surrounding the Federal Reserve’s next policy move only served to heighten the tension.
- The New Zealand Dollar was under pressure, recording a losing streak that lasted three days. A tumble below the 200-SMA and a crucial short-term support line marked the beginning of a challenging phase for the Kiwi. As the market’s anticipation of the Fed’s Core PCE Price Index grew, so did the tension surrounding the Kiwi’s fate.
- The US Dollar and the Canadian Dollar squared off for an interesting matchup last month. The pair experienced modest gains, edging towards the 1.3250 mark.
For the USD to assert its dominance, it needed to breach the 1.3250 mark, a challenge that kept investors and analysts on their toes. The struggle was real and the excitement palpable.
- Gold’s story last month was one of struggle and resilience. It tried to recover from a substantial loss, wrestling with conflicting signals from the Federal Reserve and escalating US-China tensions.
The market sentiment hung by a thread, teetering between the Fed’s Core PCE Price Index and the chances of a potential rate hike.
- The tale of Silver was a bitter-sweet one. Despite bouncing back from a two-week low, the commodity remained under bearish control. Yet, hope was not entirely lost, as the presence of key resistance around $24.70 indicated that the bears were not completely in charge.
The 50-DMA support of $24.00 remained a crucial level for the Silver price, suggesting that the month had been a roller-coaster ride for the metal.
- Western Texas Intermediate (WTI) was on a roll last month, trading near the $79.40 mark, its highest level since mid-April. The upbeat US economic data, coupled with expected supply reductions, fueled its upward journey.
With the market keeping a close eye on the US Core PCE index and the upcoming OPEC+ group’s JMMC meeting, WTI’s ride was far from over.
Watch Out for August Important Dates:
- On 10th Aug, the United States CPI report has come out. A general rule of thumb is a higher-than-anticipated figure should be viewed as positive (bullish) for the USD, while a lower-than-anticipated figure should be viewed as unfavorable (bearish).
- On 31st Aug, the United States Initial Jobless Claims report will have a significant impact on US bond and stock markets. A higher-than-expected figure should be seen as negative (bearish) for the USD while a lower-than-expected figure should be seen as positive (Bullish) for the USD.
- It is important to pay attention to the United States Nonfarm Payrolls Private report on the 4th of Aug, as it may have significant impacts on major currencies. A higher-than-expected figure should be seen as Positive (bullish) for the USD while a lower-than-expected figure should be seen as negative (bearish) for the USD.
