FX News Today

  • 10-year Treasury yields are down -1.4 bp at 2.486% as JGB yields fell back -0.4 bp to -0.063%.
  • The IMF’s growth downgrade has rekindled concerns about the outlook for the world economy and the US threat of new tariffs on imports from Europe has reminded markets that geopolitical trade tensions are far from resolved and put a stop to the rally in recovery in stock markets seen over the past week.
  • China’s bond yield rose to the highest this year as risk aversion flared up and the focus increasingly turns to China’s still large number of non-performing loans.
  • Markets are also looking to Europe today, where the EU has to make a decision on yet another Brexit extension. The IMF named Brexit as one of the risks to world growth.
  • Wall Street closed in the red and Asian markets also headed south, with Topix and Nikkei down -0.73% and -0.66%. The Hang Seng lost -0.34% so far and CSI 300 and Shanghai Comp are down -0.10% and -0.14%.
  • US stock futures, however, are posting marginal gains, after yesterday’s correction on Wall Street.

  • XAUUSD broke through the 1300 mark but is still bounded by the 1304 Resistance, with indicators appearing indecisive regarding the future trend in the pair.

  • US CPI Inflation (USD, GMT 12:30) – Core CPI is expected to have remained at 2.1% y/y, close to the Fed’s 2% target. The overall index is forecast to rise to 1.8% compared to 1.5% in March.

FX News Today

  • The broad rise in Asian long yields holds as local stock markets rallied in catch up trade after a strong close on Wall Street.
  • Trade talk hopes, signs of improving growth and low inflation, coupled with positive earnings reports continued to underpin stock market sentiment. Mnuchin suggested over the weekend that US-Sino talks are nearing the final round and that the final agreement would go “way beyond” previous efforts to open China’s markets to US companies.
  • US futures are narrowly mixed while European stock markets are underpinned.
  • Japanese markets are closing for 10 consecutive days from April 27 to May 6, inclusive.
  • After the strong first quarter earnings report from JPMorgan on Friday the focus is now turning to Goldman Sachs, Citigroup and Bank of America.
  • The front end WTI future is trading at $63.53 per barrel.
  • USD and JPY lower vs most currencies, risk appetite up on strong China import data.
  • GBP steady after EU Brexit extension; risk is it won’t resolve UK political gridlock.

Charts of the Day

Technician’s Corner

  • EURUSD keeps trading close to 3-week highs of 1.1323. Stochastics, RSI and the MACD show signals of further improvement intraday. Next Resistance point holds at 1.1330.
  • GBPUSD pulled back under 1.3100 after leaving a high at 1.3120. It is supported from the confluence of 200-period EMA and PP level the past 7 consecutive hours, at 1.3084. Next Support is set at 1.3065.
  • USDJPY settled at around PP level at 111.90 . However after Friday’s high the positive sentiment is decreasing with intraday RSI and MACD turning lower as the overall outlook remains positive. The upside Resistance level is set at 112.19, while Support now comes in at 111.68.

Main Macro Events Today

  • FOMC Member Evans Speaks – Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago President Charles Evans is due to speak in a television appearance on CNBC’s Squawk Box.
  • BOC Business Outlook Survey – The BoC’s outlook survey is expected to show an economy still moving along at a decent pace, but facing a number of challenges. This is a key report for the upcoming BoC announcement and MPR, as the Bank makes frequent references to the findings of the survey. A survey consistent with modest but still respectable growth, well contained inflation expectations and an unwinding in capacity pressures would line-up with our expectation for no change in rates later this month and through year-end.
  • Empire State index – It is estimated to jump to 9.0 in April from a 2-year low of 3.7 in March.

    • XRP trading: Still Bearish, Ripple May Bounce Up After Testing a Close Support   Ripple (XRP) Price Analysis – April 16 Regardless of the current green market, XRPUSD bearish sentiment moves in a descending channel with a slow price action towards close support. XRPBTC, on the other hand, has further fallen in a new direction. Still, XRP market is falling.   XRP/USD Market Key Levels: Resistance levels: $0.35, $0.37, $0.39 Support levels: $0.30, $0.28, $0.26   Looking at the medium-term chart, Ripple appeared bearish as price trades within a descending channel in since early April. While sitting at the lower channel, XRPUSD market has been consolidating for the past five days as a swing high is expected at $0.35 resistance level. A further push above the mentioned resistance may resume XRP on a bullish trend.   Meanwhile, a possible swing low could plummet price to $0.3 support and beyond. Evidently, the trend lines are still a defensive line for the bulls and the bears.   Viewing the 4-hours RSI, a gradual buying momentum is compounding as it points upward. More importantly, the 4-hours Stochastic RSI pressure nears overbought territory. A slight drop is likely once the indicator reaches the overbought zone. Nevertheless, XRPUSD market is still respecting a descending channel pattern.   XRP/BTC Market Ripple, as a hedge, is on a downtrend trend. The massive sell-off in early April has led the sellers to more significant downward movement as price faces 6000 SAT low.The coin’s value is dramatically depreciating as a new low is yet to be established. The bearish scenario is now revealed to be strong; following a new purple line.   Since the drop, the 4-hours RSI has positioned trading below the 50 level; currently swinging on the oversold line. A clear breach above the purple trend line could fly price to 6600 SAT resistance and above.   The current 4-hours Stochastic RSI faces the oversold zone; showing an ongoing selling pressure. A long position may switch the Oscillator on an upside trend. At the moment, the sellers are gaining control of the market.     Please note: insidebitcoins.com is not a financial advisor.
