Daily Market Overview

Israel and Hamas are close to negotiations. Bank of America believes that it is not yet time to sell the dollar
Crude oil and gasoline prices fell on Friday on concerns about energy demand in China. According to RBC Capital Markets, China's domestic oil demand has been weak, and limited stimulus measures from the government have disappointed. Oil was also pressured by signs that Israel will join peace talks in Paris, which could reduce some geopolitical risks in the Middle East.

On Friday, the US dollar index posted its first weekly decline in 2024 as investors took a break from buying the currency after a nearly two-month rally built on expectations that the Federal Reserve would begin cutting rates later than previously thought. Investors shifted expectations for the Fed's first rate cut to June rather than May, significantly reducing the extent of prime rate cuts by the US Central Bank. But, if the US economy remains as strong as it is, the Fed may not be able to go for a rate cut in June.

Current trend

During the Asian session, the USD/CAD pair moderately develops the “bullish” momentum formed on Friday and tests the level of 1.3500 for a breakout, while trading participants expect the emergence of new drivers.

Today, investors will focus on statistics from the real estate market: in December, sales of new homes increased by 8.0% to 0.664M, and January forecasts suggest a more muted growth to 0.680M. On Tuesday, data on US consumer confidence for February and durable goods orders: according to preliminary estimates, the figure excluding transport in January will be adjusted from 0.5% to 0.2%. On Wednesday, Q4 personal consumption expenditures statistics will be published, thanks to which US Federal Reserve officials will be able to assess the pace of decline in inflation pressure within the country: previously, the index increased by 1.7% QoQ.

On Thursday, analysts will estimate the dynamics of Canada’s Q4 gross domestic product (GDP): forecasts suggest growth of the national economy by 0.8% YoY after a decline of 1.1% earlier, and by the end of December, as before, the figure will increase by about 0.2%.

Support and resistance

On the daily chart, Bollinger Bands are moving flat: the price range remains virtually unchanged, remaining quite spacious for the current market activity level.

Gold prices are recovering after a systematic decline at the beginning of the week, when quotes returned to local lows from July 10. At the moment, the XAU/USD pair is testing 1930.00, receiving support from Chinese macroeconomic statistics: an increase in the Consumer Price Index by 0.2% was recorded in July after reducing by the same amount last month, although analysts' forecasts suggested a decrease by 0.1%, and in annual terms there was a correction of -0.3%, which is only 0.1% better than market forecasts. The day before, investors, on the contrary, were disappointed by weak statistics from China on the dynamics of Exports and Imports. Exports in July fell by 14.5% year on year after -12.4% last month, although analysts expected a value of -12.5%, while Imports lost 12.4% after falling by 6.8% earlier: the real dynamics turned out to be worse than forecasts by more than two times.
