  2. The Price of Silver Has Reached Its Highest Level in Over Three Years As indicated by the XAG/USD chart today, the intraday price of silver reached $29.84 per ounce yesterday, while the previous yearly high on 12 April was $29.79. The last time this price was seen was in February 2021. It is worth noting that today the price of silver is behaving more bullishly than the price of gold, which is approximately 1.5% below its April high. The main factor contributing to the rise in the price of silver is likely the weakening of the US dollar, as traders expect the Federal Reserve to ease monetary policy. Can the price of silver continue to rise? Analysts are generally bullish. As CNBC reports: → Saxo Bank strategists recently stated in an analytical review that the price of silver could rise to $30, while gold could soon test the $2,400 level. → Analysts at ROTH Capital Partners forecast that the prices of gold and silver will rise even higher in the coming months. According to JC O'Hara, Chief Market Technician, if the price breaks the $30 level, "there will be few resistance levels until the $35/$37 range." Let’s provide more data for a technical analysis of the silver market.

  3. The Share Price of Alibaba (BABA) Has Reached Its Yearly High On 14 May, Alibaba released its first-quarter performance report: → Earnings per share: actual = $1.404, expected = $1.421; → Gross income: actual = $30.716 billion, expected = $30.502 billion. The fact that earnings per share were slightly below expectations did not disappoint investors much, as on 16 May, Alibaba's share price (BABA) reached a yearly high, exceeding $86, forming a wide bullish candlestick with a close near the top (a sign of strong demand). Positive sentiments were also driven by: → Another Chinese company, JD.com, released a report that exceeded expectations; → US regulators published information that well-known investor Michael Burry invested in Alibaba shares. David Tepper, head of the hedge fund Appaloosa Management, also holds a bullish outlook; → According to a note published on X (Twitter) by Citron Research analysts, Alibaba's share price could rise to $100.

On the upside, the AUD/USD chart indicates that the pair is now facing resistance near the 50% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the 0.6714 swing high to the 0.6654 low at 0.6685. The first major resistance might be 0.6715. An upside break above the 0.6715 resistance might send the pair further higher. The next major resistance is near the 0.6750 level.

  5. Bitcoin Price Hits a Month's High, Breaking Key Resistance Yesterday's release of CPI figures suggests that inflation is slowing down and a rate cut could be on the horizon. This weakened the dollar and boosted the value of assets priced in dollars, including BTC/USD. As a result, the price of Bitcoin hit a May high. Meanwhile, there is sustained demand in the market driven by institutional participants investing in Bitcoin ETFs. According to media reports citing 13F filings: → JP Morgan invested $731,246 USD → Wells Fargo invested $141,817 USD in Grayscale's GBTC. → Similar activity is observed with other traditional banks like BNP Paribas and BNY Mellon, indicating a broader industry trend.

  6. Dollar Adjusts After the Publication of Inflation Data in the US Data on the Consumer Price Index (CPI) in the US, released yesterday, had a significant impact on the pricing of major currency pairs. According to the provided report: The core Consumer Price Index, which excludes food and energy costs, increased by 0.3% from the previous month, while experts had forecasted 0.4%. Retail sales remained unchanged at 0.0%, contrary to analysts' expectations of 0.4%. As a result of the publication of such data, the dollar depreciated against almost all major currencies. For instance, the USD/JPY currency pair retreated from its peak at 156.60, the EUR/USD strengthened by more than 100 pips within a couple of hours, and buyers of the GBP/USD pair tested a significant resistance level at 1.2700. The main reason for the sharp decline of the dollar against G-10 currencies is likely due to the possibility that slowing inflation growth and a weak labour market could prompt the Federal Reserve to change its monetary policy direction and reduce the base interest rate in the coming months. USD/JPY According to technical analysis of the USD/JPY pair on the daily timeframe, a "bearish engulfing" pattern has formed, the confirmation of which could contribute to a retest of the important area between 152.80-152.00. If dollar buyers manage to establish themselves above 154.90, the price may resume its upward movement towards recent highs around 156.00. Macro-economic data that could influence the pricing of the pair in the upcoming trading sessions: Today at 15:30 (GMT +3:00), the number of initial jobless claims in the US. Today at 15:30 (GMT +3:00), the Philadelphia Fed Manufacturing Index (US).

  7. The US Dollar Is Weakening Following Inflation Data Yesterday saw the release of key economic indicators for the US. According to ForexFactory: → Core Price Index (CPI) monthly: actual = 0.3%, expected = 0.4%, previous = 0.4%; → Core Price Index (CPI) annual: actual = 3.4%, expected = 3.4%, previous = 3.5%; → Retail Sales monthly: actual = 0.0%, expected = 0.4%, previous = 0.6%. Concerns about rising inflation did not materialise. Reuters reports that unchanged retail sales suggest conditions are forming for interest rate cuts. Financial markets reacted significantly, with the US dollar weakening: → As we reported yesterday, signs of slowing inflation increased market participants' belief in imminent rate cuts, leading to the S&P 500 stock index (US SPX 500 mini on FXOpen) reaching an all-time high; → Gold prices reached a high not seen since April 21; → Other currencies strengthened against the US dollar. An interesting situation is developing on the USD/JPY chart. Applying Fibonacci ratios, we note three instances where price recovery halted around the 0.382 level: → Recovery from B to C following the impulsive decline from A to B; → Recovery from D to E after the impulsive decline from C to D; → Recovery from F to G after the 3-wave decline from A to F.

  8. The Stock Price of PepsiСo (PEP) Is Retracting from Its Yearly High On April 23, the quarterly report of PepsiCo's performance for the first quarter was published, which was awaited anxiously. The issue stemmed from the fact that in December 2023, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced the recall of over 40 Quaker Oats products – a company owned by PepsiCo – due to potential salmonella contamination. This led to a 22% decline in sales volume of Quaker Food products in the first quarter. However, the report exceeded expectations: → Earnings per share: Actual = $1.16, Expected = $1.518; → Gross revenue: Actual = $18.25 billion, Expected = $18.08 billion. By April 25, the stock price of PepsiCo (PEP) reached its yearly high, surpassing the $180 mark. Then, this week, specifically May 13, the stock price of PepsiCo (PEP) hit a new yearly high, exceeding $181.

  9. The S&P 500 Index Has Reached a Significant Resistance Level Analyzing the S&P 500 chart (US SPX 500 mini on FXOpen) on April 26, we wrote about how the April decline could be a correction to the lower boundary of the channel within the 2024 rally. Following this, a logical development would be for the bulls to attempt to resume the upward trend and make another attempt to breach the 5250 level. Today, May 15, the price of the S&P 500 index (US SPX 500 mini on FXOpen) is at the 5250 level after a bullish breakout of the trendline (shown in red) that delineated the correction. The price has risen by approximately 4.5% since the beginning of May as earnings season has not been disappointing, and traders anticipate the Federal Reserve will ease monetary policy. Is further index growth possible? Ben Snyder, Senior US Equity Market Strategist at Goldman Sachs, is positive in the long term but notes that: → the S&P 500 index has already surpassed the 5200 target level indicated by the bank's analysts; → an obvious risk of growth lies in the fact that companies may need to significantly raise profit forecasts. Fundamental background has a significant influence on the dynamics of the S&P 500 index (US SPX 500 mini on FXOpen). For example, yesterday Producer Price Index (PPI) data was released. According to ForexFactory: PPI m/m actual = 0.5%, expected = 0.3%, a month ago = -0.1%. The initial market reaction was a decline in the price of the S&P 500 index (US SPX 500 mini on FXOpen) – perhaps market participants were spooked by rising producer prices and the prospect of higher Fed rates. However, this was followed by a statement from Fed Chair Powell, who reassured the markets. According to him: → the next Fed move is unlikely to be a rate hike; → the PPI data is more "mixed than hot", considering that the previous period's data was revised downwards.

  11. Gold Price (XAU/USD) Is Testing an Important Resistance Zone On April 16, we wrote why the $2,380 zone is an important resistance area. The XAU/USD chart shows that: 1) After fading fluctuations (they formed a narrowing consolidation triangle - shown in green), the price of gold dropped sharply (shown by a black arrow) on April 22-23. 2) Then, the price found support in the form of the lower border of the ascending channel (shown in blue), which has been in effect since the beginning of March. This led to the formation of another consolidation pattern between the blue lines. 3) An upward breakdown of the red lines on May 9 could be interpreted as an attempt by the bulls to resume the upward trend within the blue channel, but we could expect that the green triangle with its axis around 2380 would provide resistance.

  13. Analytical Euro to Dollar Predictions for 2024-2025 The EUR/USD currency pair stands as a critical barometer of economic interactions and the relative strength between the Eurozone and the United States. This article delves into the recent history, economic outlooks, and analytical euro-to-dollar forecasts for this major currency pair in 2024 and 2025. Recent EUR/USD History From 2019 to the present, the EUR/USD currency pair has navigated through turbulent economic waters, influenced by a series of global events and differing monetary policies between Europe and the United States. Initially, the euro experienced a gradual depreciation against the dollar, moving from around 1.14 at 2019’s open to close the year at 1.12. This was largely due to the European Central Bank's (ECB) continuation of its quantitative easing program, coupled with its persistently low interest rate of 0%. The onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in early 2020 sent the euro tumbling further to a low of approximately 1.06 as panic gripped global markets. However, recovery was swift, and by September 2020, the euro had climbed to a high of about 1.20, bolstered by the US dollar's comparative weakness. The euro fluctuated between 1.23 and 1.17 in the first half of 2021. However, inflation began to rise in both the Eurozone and US economy, but more so in the US. The anticipation of steep hikes by the Federal Reserve caused it to close near 1.13 by year's end.

  14. Market Analysis: Gold Price Regains Strength While Crude Oil Price Recovers The gold price started a fresh increase above $2,320. Crude oil is recovering and might rise toward the $81.20 resistance zone. Important Takeaways for Gold and Oil Price Analysis Today The gold price started a decent increase from the $2,300 zone against the US Dollar. It broke a key descending channel with resistance at $2,315 on the hourly chart of gold at FXOpen. Crude oil is recovering losses and trading above the $78.55 support. There was a break above a connecting bearish trendline with resistance near $78.40 on the hourly chart of XTI/USD at FXOpen. Gold Price Technical Analysis On the hourly chart of XAU/USD at FXOpen, the price formed support near the $2,275 zone, remained in a bullish zone, and started a strong increase above $2,300. It broke a key descending channel with resistance at $2,315. The bulls even pushed the price above the $2,345 level and the 50-hour simple moving average. Finally, it traded as high as $2,358. XAU/USD is now consolidating gains near the $2,355 zone, and the RSI is above 70. Initial support on the downside is near the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $2,307 swing low to the $2,358 high at $2,345. The first major support is near the $2,335 zone. It is close to the 50% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $2,307 swing low to the $2,358 high. If there is a downside break below the $2,335 support, the price might decline further. In the stated case, the price might drop toward $2,320 and the 50-hour simple moving average. Immediate resistance is near the $2,360 level. The next major resistance is near the $2,372 level. An upside break above the $2,372 resistance could send the gold price toward $2,385. Any more gains may perhaps set the pace for an increase toward the $2,400 level.

  15. WTI Oil Price Recovers Quickly From March Lows On May 8, the price of WTI crude oil fell below $77 per barrel for the first time since March 11. But on the morning of May 10, it was above $79 – an increase of almost 3% in less than two days. Several factors contributed to the significant rise in the price of WTI crude oil. According to Reuters, among them: → Increased oil demand from the United States. Data released on Wednesday showed a drop in US crude oil inventories, driven by increased refinery utilisation. → Growing demand from China. Data published on Thursday showed an increase in oil imports. → Ongoing concerns about possible supply disruptions due to escalating conflict in the Middle East. Negotiations to end hostilities between Israel and Hamas failed, and Israel attacked the Palestinian city of Rafah. On April 19, we wrote about the possibility of a bearish breakdown of the ascending channel line, which would be welcomed by the US administration, where the presidential elections are getting closer and closer. Since then, the price of oil has broken down the median line and the support line at $80.70, which may act as resistance in the future.
