    AUD/USD: the uptrend is strengthening

    Current trend

    AUD has shown significant gains against USD in trading in Asia, updating local highs since the end of June and actively testing 0.7570 for a breakout.

    The instrument significantly benefited from the publication of Friday's US labor market report, as investors rushed to look for alternatives to the "safe" USD, expecting that the US Fed will maintain its current monetary policy for a while. "Bullish" sentiment was supported yesterday by moderately optimistic macroeconomic statistics from Australia. In particular, investors reacted positively to a 0.4% MoM growth in retail sales in May after a 0.1% MoM growth in April.

    Today, traders are focused on the meeting of the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA), at which, as expected, the regulator left the interest rate level unchanged at 0.1%. As for the bond buyback program, the RBA intends to prolong it after completion in early September. The regulator is expected to buy bonds worth 4B dollars a week until at least mid-November.

    Support and resistance

    In the D1 chart, Bollinger Bands are reversing horizontally. The price range is narrowing from above, being spacious enough for the current activity level in the market. MACD has reversed to growth having formed a strong buy signal (located above the signal line). Stochastic keeps its upward direction but is approaching its highs rapidly, which reflects risks of the overbought AUD in the ultra-short term.

    Resistance levels: 0.7570, 0.7600, 0.7645, 0.7676.
    Support levels: 0.7531, 0.7500, 0.7475, 0.7443.

      Mastercard Inc.: wave analysis

      The price may grow.

      On the daily chart, the fifth wave of the higher level (5) develops, within which the wave 3 of (5) forms. Now, the third wave of the lower level iii of 3 is developing, within which the wave (ii) of iii has ended, and the formation of the wave (iii) of iii has started. If the assumption is correct, the price will grow to the levels of 450.00–500.00. In this scenario, critical stop loss level is 355.20.

        USD/CAD: the instrument is renewing the highs since the end of April

        Current trend

        Today, during the Asian session, the USD/CAD pair grows steadily, renewing the local highs of April 22.

        Yesterday, the instrument showed ambiguous dynamics, which was caused by the publication of the latest minutes of the US Federal Reserve meeting. As expected, they reflected its wait-and-see stance on reductions in existing incentives. Also, the regulator expects a gradual return of inflation to the target level of 2%. Positive macroeconomic statistics from Canada put additional pressure on the rate. Thus, the Ivey business activity index for June rose from 64.7 to 71.9 points, which was better than the average forecasts of analysts.

        On Thursday, traders will focus on US statistics on the dynamics of initial and continuing jobless claims. Key data from Canada is due on Friday when the June labor market report will be released. Analysts' forecasts for Canadian statistics are very optimistic.

        Support and resistance

        On the daily chart, Bollinger bands grow moderately. The price range expands but not as fast as the “bullish” sentiment develops at the moment. MACD grows, maintaining a strong buy signal (the histogram is above the signal line). Stochastic also maintains a strong upward trend but is close to its highs, signaling that USD is overbought in the short term.

        The current readings of technical indicators do not contradict the further development of bullish dynamics in the nearest time intervals.

        Resistance levels: 1.2554, 1.2600, 1.2650.
        Support levels: 1.2500, 1.2448, 1.2400, 1.2352.

          GBP/USD: moderate decline at the end of the week

          Current trend

          GBP is showing a slight decline against USD during the morning trading session, preparing to end the week near the local lows since July 2. The instrument is testing 1.3770 for a breakdown and expects new drivers to appear on the market, which may be the US Fed's monetary policy report and a block of macroeconomic statistics from the UK.

          Macroeconomic data from the USA published the day before turned out to be contradictory. Initial Jobless Claims for the week ending July 2 unexpectedly increased from 371K to 373K, which turned out to be significantly worse than the positive market forecast of a decrease to 350K. Continuing Jobless Claims for the week ending June 25 fell from 3.484M to 3.339M, which was only slightly worse than expectations at 3.335M.

          Support and resistance

          Bollinger Bands in D1 chart demonstrate a stable decrease. The price range is almost unchanged, but it remains rather spacious for the current level of activity in the market. The MACD indicator is trying to reverse upwards, keeping a formal buy signal (the histogram is above the signal line). However, it is still not worth relying on such indicator readings at the moment. Stochastic, on the other hand, maintains a moderate decline, rapidly approaching the level of "20", which indicates increasing risks of oversold GBP in the ultra-short term.

          Resistance levels: 1.3800, 1.3857, 1.3900, 1.3960.
          Support levels: 1.3750, 1.3700, 1.3650, 1.3600.

            WTI Crude Oil: prices are holding near record highs

            Current trend

            Today, during the Asian session, prices for WTI Crude Oil are growing moderately, developing the “bullish” momentum formed at the end of last week.

            Yesterday, the instrument renewed record highs since October 2018 but still failed to consolidate at the occupied levels since a wave of sales covered the market at the end of the daily session. The situation remains rather uncertain at the moment, as investors assess the likelihood of the spread of a new strain of coronavirus, which could lead to new restrictive measures and a decrease in energy demand. Also, the quotes are influenced by the ambiguous OPEC+ policy: the latest negotiations of the alliance reached a dead end but traders do not give up hope that an agreement will be reached.

            On Tuesday, investors are focused on statistics on consumer inflation in the US and a report from the American Petroleum Institute (API) on oil reserves for the week of July 9. Previous data reflected a decrease in reserves by 7.983M barrels.

            Support and resistance

            Bollinger bands actively grow on the daily chart. The price range expands from above but not as fast as the “bullish” sentiments develop. MACD reversed upwards, forming a new buy signal (the histogram is above the signal line). Stochastic grows but the indicator line is approaching its highs, indicating that the instrument may become overbought in the ultra-short term.

            Resistance levels: 75.68, 76.27, 77.00.
            Support levels: 75.00, 74.00, 73.00, 71.80.

                AUD/USD: rhetoric of the US Fed again disappointed the markets

                Current trend

                The pair AUD/USD continues to correct in a lateral trend amid ambiguous data on the Australian labor market and is at 0.7465.

                The overall unemployment rate fell in June to 4.9% from 5.1% in May, but the number of people employed increased by 29.1K (slightly lower than the 30.0K forecast). The share of the economically active population remained at the May level (66.2%), while analysts expected the indicator to increase to 66.3%. The indicators reflected the ongoing recovery of the labor market, and for a complete picture, one needs to wait for the inflation data.

                USD also failed to get support after yesterday's speech by the head of the US Fed Jerome Powell in the House of Representatives. Analyzing the significant increase in inflation, the official continued to adhere to his line and noted that, despite the unexpected persistence of inflation, the regulator does not plan to take action and expects a decrease in the indicator as the impact of the pandemic subsides. Investors were disappointed by the agency’s reaction, and the dollar sell-off began to intensify.

                Support and resistance

                On the global chart, the price continues to form a downtrend. Technical indicators still give a sell signal: the range of the EMAs fluctuations of the Alligator indicator is quite wide, and the AO histogram is trading deep in the sell zone.

                Support levels: 0.7420, 0.7200.
                Resistance levels: 0.7520, 0.7655.

                  The price may grow.

                  On the daily chart, a downward correction of the higher level developed as the second wave (2), within which the wave C of (2) formed, and the development of the third wave (3) started. Now, the first entry wave of the lower level 1 of (3) has formed, a downward correction has developed as the wave 2 of (3), and the formation of the wave 3 of (3) has started. If the assumption is correct, the price will grow to the levels of 75.00–80.00. In this scenario, critical stop loss level is 53.14.

                        Morning Market Review

                        EUR/USD

                        EUR shows ambiguous dynamics against USD during today's Asian session, holding at its lows since April 5. The day before, EUR showed steady growth, but then fell just as quickly, which was caused by the publication of the minutes of the meeting of the European Central Bank (ECB) on the interest rate. As expected, the regulator kept the parameters of the monetary policy unchanged, but provided updated recommendations, according to which the recovery of the region's economy may require "constant and strong" support. Earlier, the European Central Bank announced a new monetary policy strategy and adjusted the inflation target. The latter, however, does not show any stable uptrend, and therefore there is no hope for a reduction in the quantitative easing program in the near future. Additional pressure on EUR was put by data on the level of consumer confidence in the eurozone, which in July fell from –3.3 to –4.4 points, while analysts had expected a moderate rise in the indicator to –2.5 points. Today, investors are focused on statistics on business activity in the manufacturing and services sectors in the eurozone for July.

                        GBP/USD

                        GBP is trading downwards against USD, correcting after strong gains over the past two sessions that pushed the instrument to local highs since July 16. The reason for the further development of "bullish" trend yesterday was the weak position of USD, which reacted to the publication of macroeconomic statistics from the USA. Initial Jobless Claims for the week ending July 16 unexpectedly increased from 368K to 419K, which turned out to be worse than market expectations at 350K. Continuing Jobless Claims fell from 3.265M to 3.236M, but fell short of the expected 3.1M. Correctional sentiment reigns in the market today as investors rush to lock in long profits ahead of the weekend. Slight support for GBP is provided by data on Gfk Consumer Confidence. In July, the indicator continued to grow and strengthened from –9 to –7 points, which turned out to be slightly better than the market forecasts at the level of –8 points.

                        AUD/USD

                        AUD shows ambiguous dynamics of trading against USD during the Asian session, consolidating near the local highs and the level of 0.7400. The instrument is supported by the weak positions of USD, which is under pressure from the disappointing macroeconomic statistics from the US on jobless claims. At the same time, the further growth of the pair is hindered by the data from Australia, released today. Commonwealth Bank Services PMI in July fell sharply from 56.8 to 44.2 points, which turned out to be worse than the forecasts. Commonwealth Bank Manufacturing PMI also fell from 58.6 to 56.8 points. In turn, the Composite PMI in July fell from 56.7 to 45.2 points.

                        USD/JPY

                        USD shows slight gains against JPY in Asian trading, recovering from a slight decline the day before. Yesterday, USD recorded a decline against most of its competitors, responding to the publication of unexpectedly weak macroeconomic statistics from the US on the dynamics of initial jobless claims. However, USD's decline against JPY turned out to be very limited, as investors preferred to return to more risky assets for a while. In addition, there was a day off in Japan yesterday due to the Health and Sports Day. Today, investors are focused on statistics on business activity in the manufacturing and services sectors in the US from Markit. Analysts' forecasts suggest a slight increase in indicators, which is unlikely to provide significant support to USD.

                        XAU/USD

                        Gold prices are declining during today's Asian session, developing flat dynamics in the short term. The day before, the instrument renewed its local lows since July 12, responding to the growth of stock indices and a moderate increase in USD rate. However, with the opening of the US trading session, the "bulls" managed to fully recoup, entering the green zone after the publication of disappointing macroeconomic statistics on jobless claims in the USA. Meanwhile, concerns about a new wave of the COVID-19 pandemic continue to provide moderate support for gold, as a number of countries are seeing a sharp increase in the number of infections.
