The Price of Silver Has Reached Its Highest Level in Over Three Years
silver.jpg

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.

Coinbase (COIN) Stock Price Holds at Key Support Level
UNpV8Uo.jpeg

On Thursday, stock market traders were concerned about the sharp drop in Coinbase shares, listed on the Nasdaq, which fell by 9%. This was triggered by rumours that the Chicago-based CME Group is planning to launch cryptocurrency trading, posing a challenge to Coinbase, currently the leading cryptocurrency exchange in the US.

It is worth noting that CME already trades Bitcoin futures (since December 2017) and Ethereum futures (since February 2021). Is it possible for CME to launch spot cryptocurrency trading?

On one hand, interest in the cryptocurrency market has surged in 2024, with Bitcoin’s price up approximately 58% year-to-date, and around 146% over the past 12 months.

On the other hand, CME Group, as the world’s largest operator of exchange-traded derivatives, is considered a fundamental part of the US financial system. The SEC is unlikely to be favourable towards initiating cryptocurrency trading there, given their reputation for high risk.

Nevertheless, the sharp decline in Coinbase shares on Thursday did not continue into Friday.

Commodity Currencies Retreat from Local Highs
n4SHAhu.jpeg

Despite the cooling labour market in the US and declining inflation, the American currency continues to move towards new highs. For instance, the USD/JPY currency pair might update the current month's high at 156.70, the NZD/USD sharply declines after retesting 0.6140, and buyers of the USD/CAD pair have confidently secured a position above 1.3600.

USD/CAD

The corrective pullback in the USD/CAD pair ended just below 1.3600. According to technical analysis, on May 16th, a bullish "piercing line" pattern formed on the daily timeframe for USD/CAD. The completion of this pattern could lead to a retest of the key range 1.3690-1.3660. If the price remains above these levels in the coming weeks, the pair’s rise could resume towards 1.3850-1.3820. A drop below 1.3600 could contribute to a more extensive downward correction towards 1.3530-1.3470. Important indicators that may affect USD/CAD pricing in the coming trading sessions:

  • Today at 15:30 (GMT +3:00) - Canada’s Core Consumer Price Index (CPI) for April
  • Tomorrow at 17:00 (GMT +3:00) - US Existing Home Sales

Tech Stocks Back in Vogue as Nasdaq 100 Rallies to Record High
grbJjbe.png

The tech-heavy Nasdaq 100 index (US Tech 100 mini on FXOpen’s TickTrader platform) reached a new all-time high on Monday, closing the trading session at 18,684.2 according to FXOpen pricing, fueled by renewed investor enthusiasm for technology stocks.

This remarkable feat underscores the resurgence of the tech sector, which has been buoyed by speculation surrounding two key factors: the highly anticipated earnings report from semiconductor giant NVIDIA and the possibility of interest rate cuts by the Federal Reserve.

NVIDIA's Earnings Anticipation

NVIDIA, a leading player in the rapidly growing artificial intelligence (AI) market, is set to release its earnings report on Wednesday. Investors are eagerly awaiting this announcement, with expectations running high for another quarter of impressive financial performance.

The company's cutting-edge chips are in high demand for AI applications, positioning it as a frontrunner in this transformative technology.

The anticipation surrounding NVIDIA's earnings has ignited a frenzy in the tech sector, driving up share prices and contributing to the US Tech 100 mini's record-breaking performance. Investors are betting on NVIDIA's continued dominance in the AI space, which could further propel the stock and the broader tech market.

Gold Price Reaches Historic High
Zw8oNIN.png

According to confirmed information, Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi, considered a potential successor to the country's supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, died in a helicopter crash in a mountainous area near the border with Azerbaijan. The helicopter also carried Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian and other officials, all of whom perished.

As news of the helicopter search in the inaccessible mountainous region spread, the price of gold rose significantly. Yahoo Finance reports that the gold rally was driven by uncertainty about the situation in Iran.

The XAU/USD chart indicates that yesterday, at the peak of the day, the price of gold reached $2450, an all-time high. Can the rally continue?

0drK0Jl.png

Important Takeaways for GBP/USD and EUR/GBP Analysis Today

  • The British Pound is attempting a fresh increase above 1.2700.
  • There is a key bullish trend line forming with support near 1.2690 on the hourly chart of GBP/USD at FXOpen.
  • EUR/GBP is trading in a bearish zone below the 0.8565 pivot level.
  • EUR/GBP is trading in a bearish zone below the 0.8565 pivot level.

GBP/USD Technical Analysis
jyQXDup.jpeg

On the hourly chart of GBP/USD at FXOpen, the pair remained well-bid above the 1.2520 level. The British Pound started a decent increase above the 1.2600 zone against the US Dollar.

The bulls were able to push the pair above the 50-hour simple moving average and 1.2640. The pair even climbed above 1.2700 and traded as high as 1.2726. Recently, there was a minor decline below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the 1.2656 swing low to the 1.2726 high, but the bulls were active above 1.2700.

On the upside, the GBP/USD chart indicates that the pair is facing resistance near 1.2725. The next major resistance is near 1.2740.

A close above the 1.2740 resistance zone could open the doors for a move toward 1.2780. Any more gains might send GBP/USD toward 1.2850. On the downside, there is a key support forming near a bullish trend line at 1.2690. It is close to the 50% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the 1.2656 swing low to the 1.2726 high.

If there is a downside break below 1.2690, the pair could accelerate lower. The next major support is at 1.2640. The next key support is seen near 1.2600, below which the pair could test 1.2520. Any more losses could lead the pair toward the 1.2500 support.

GBP/USD Rate Surges to Two-Month High After Inflation News
Uh7yurK.png

Today, the Consumer Price Index (CPI) figures for the UK were published. According to ForexFactory:

→ Annual CPI: actual = 2.3%; expected = 2.1%; previous = 3.2%.

→ Annual Core CPI: actual = 3.9%; expected = 3.6%; previous = 4.2%.

Thus, it can be asserted that:

→ The current inflation level is at its lowest since 2021.

→ It is close to the target levels of 2%.

However, economists polled by Reuters had expected a sharper drop to 2.1%, based on falling energy prices.

Additionally, inflation in the services sector (a key indicator monitored by the Bank of England due to the dominance of this sector in the UK economy) only slightly decreased to 5.9% from 6%.

As a result, CNBC reports that market participants have reduced the likelihood of the Bank of England easing monetary policy:

→ The probability of a rate cut in June has decreased to 15% compared to 50% before the inflation news was published.

→ The probability of a rate cut in August was estimated at 40% compared to 70% before the publication.

The currency market reacted with a surge in volatility – the GBP/USD rate jumped to a two-month high, reaching the 1.27555 level. However, as the market absorbed the data, the price began to gradually decline.

After Earnings Report, NVDA Stock Price Exceeds $1,000
JiKWRCu.png

For the first time in history, Nvidia's stock price has reached a four-digit number, and its market capitalisation has surpassed $2.5 trillion, ranking third globally after Microsoft and Apple. This surge is due to a strong earnings report, driven by high demand for AI chips:

→ Earnings per share: actual = $6.12, expected = $5.60;
→ Gross revenue: actual = $26.04 billion, expected = $24.59 billion.

Additionally, Nvidia announced a 10-for-1 stock split to make shares more accessible and attract new investors, which should support NVDA stock in the future.

While yesterday's main trading session closed around $950 per share, the price rose by approximately 6% in after-hours trading. Thus, NVDA's stock price has increased by over 100% since the beginning of the year. Can the rally continue?

On March 28, in the article "Stock Market Analysis: NVDA Losing Leadership?", we:
→ Noted signs of weakness relative to the S&P 500 index;
→ Constructed an ascending blue channel;
→ Suggested a potential pullback to the $800 level.

EUR/USD Price Forms Bullish Reversal Amid Key News
LxPx3AI.png

Last night, the FOMC meeting minutes were released. According to USNews, there were no major surprises. However, the confirmation of persistent inflation – along with hints that some officials discussed potential future rate hikes – displayed a "hawkish" stance. The dollar index initially rose following the minutes' release but returned to pre-release levels this morning, suggesting the initial reaction might have been incorrect.

Subsequently, the Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI) data for key European economies was published. According to ForexFactory:
→ Flash Manufacturing PMI (France): actual = 46.7; expected = 45.8; previous = 45.3;
→ Flash Services PMI (France): actual = 49.4; expected = 51.8; previous = 51.3;
→ Flash Manufacturing PMI (Germany): actual = 45.4; expected = 43.4; previous = 42.5;
→ Flash Services PMI (Germany): actual = 53.9; expected = 53.5; previous = 53.2.

Overall, the actual PMI figures, considered a leading indicator of economic health, exceeded expectations and gave the euro a bullish push.

The combined effect of the euro's rise and the dollar's decline since midnight resulted in a four-hour EUR/USD chart candle with a long lower tail (indicated by an arrow), suggesting demand outweighs supply. A subsequent bullish candle could confirm this.

From economic outlooks to key market drivers, this article provides valuable insights for traders navigating the complexities of currency trading.

The Canadian Dollar's Recent Performance

Throughout 2019, the USD/CAD exchange rate remained relatively stable, fluctuating between 1.35 and 1.30. This period was marked by heightened trade tensions between the US and its key trading partners, primarily China, which had a ripple effect on the pair due to both the US and Canada's significant trade relationships.

European Currencies Testing Key Levels: Contributing Factors
xBdfZAr.png

In recent trading sessions, a significant amount of crucial macroeconomic data has been released from the US, Europe, and the UK:

  • Wednesday: Consumer Price Index (CPI) in the UK (the figure came in higher than experts' forecast at 2.3% versus 2.1%)
  • Wednesday: Publication of the minutes from the latest Federal Reserve meeting
  • Thursday: US Manufacturing PMI (the figure exceeded experts' forecast at 50.9 versus 50.0)

This rich mix of data contributed to the USD/JPY pair testing 157.00, EUR/USD sellers attempting to break key support at 1.0800, and the GBP/USD pair halting its recent strengthening and returning to 1.2700.

EUR/USD

Technical analysis of the EUR/USD pair indicates the development of a bearish “dark cloud cover” pattern on the daily timeframe, formed on May 16. If the pair's sellers manage to break the support at 1.0800, the downward movement of the pair could extend towards 1.0730-1.0710. A resumption of the upward movement can be expected once the price moves above 1.0900. Today, several macroeconomic indicators are due for release, which could either reinforce the current trend or lead to the formation of reversal patterns:

  • Today at 09:00 (GMT+3:00) Germany's Q1 GDP
  • Today at 13:00 (GMT+3:00) Eurogroup Meeting

S&P-500 Analysis: Good News is Bad News
BWVn5b8.png

Yesterday, S&P Global reported its Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI) values for the US, which exceeded expectations. According to ForexFactory:

→ Manufacturing PMI: actual = 50.9; expected = 50.0; previous = 50.0.

→ Services PMI: actual = 54.8 (the highest value since May 2023); expected = 51.2; previous = 51.3.

However, the high PMI values, indicating a healthy economy, led to a drop in the stock index. The S&P-500 index (US SPX 500 mini on FXOpen) fell by more than 1.5% following the publication.

What explains this case of "good news is bad news"?

The point is, amid high business activity, manufacturers reported rising prices for a range of resources, suggesting that goods inflation might strengthen in the coming months. Stock market participants might have interpreted this as a reason for the Federal Reserve to maintain high rates for a longer period – hence the sharp decline in the index.

"Companies remain cautious with respect to the economic outlook amid uncertainty over the future path of inflation and interest rates, and continue to cite worries over geopolitical instabilities and the presidential election," said Chris Williamson, Chief Business Economist at S&P Global Market Intelligence, in an interview with Reuters.

Gold Price Drops Over 3.6% in 2 Days
gold-2.png

The price of gold has fallen by more than 3.6% over 2 days, as indicated by today's XAU/USD chart. The day before yesterday, at the opening of the daily candle, the price of gold was $2421 per ounce, and yesterday at the close it was $2331.

This can be explained by market participants expecting higher Federal Reserve interest rates for a longer period. However, although gold is a hedge against inflation, it has two drawbacks:
→ It does not inherently generate income;
→ The gold market may be overvalued – after all, a historical peak was reached on May 20th.

Therefore, investors are increasingly paying attention to bonds – they also allow hedging against inflation, while their yields are rising.

Can Last Week's Gold Price Rally Be Replicated?
VLFfUaU.png

Gold holds a particularly exceptional status among precious metals. Whilst it does have some use in the manufacturing of consumer durables and electronic products ranging from alloy compounds in wedding rings to terminals for connecting electrical cables in audio equipment, its greatest use case is as an investment vehicle for the purposes of storing value in a physical commodity.

Over recent years, other precious metals such as platinum and cobalt have suddenly seen their status change from that of a rare mineral resource to a material in high demand as they form components used in electric vehicle batteries and other renewable energy-related hardware such as solar panels.

However, despite the sudden huge demand for these materials for industrial purposes, gold still remains a de facto investable metal whose price movements are often affected by global affairs rather than supply and demand.

In the latter part of this month, gold reached a record high, according to World Gold Council data, and was trading at $2427.30 on May 21.

That soon took an opposite turn, and by May 26, FXOpen pricing showed gold to be trading at well under the $2,400 mark.

WTI Crude Oil Price Shows Bullish Trend Ahead of OPEC Meeting
JJ5KuqD.png

As the chart indicates, on Monday, the price of WTI crude oil rose by approximately 1%.

Reuters reports that the bullish sentiment is driven by:
→ the upcoming OPEC+ meeting scheduled for 2 June;
→ expectations of high fuel demand with the start of the summer driving season and holiday season in the US.

Conducting a technical analysis of WTI crude oil on 10 May, we drew an ascending channel in blue and suggested a scenario of continued price growth within this channel.

Since then:
→ the price formed a low on 15 May at the level of 76.35, but quickly recovered from it. Thus, the bears' attempt to break the low of 8 May at the level of 76.68 quickly failed. In other words, there was a false breakout of the 8 May low.
→ A similar pattern occurred on 24 May – the price dropped below the 15 May low of 76.35, but quickly recovered.

Two false bearish breakouts are a bullish sign. And the strong behaviour of WTI crude oil prices on Monday confirms this.

When the Chips Are Up! NVIDIA's Stratospheric Market Cap
ISf6CwJ.png

NVIDIA is a veritable Goliath among the highly competitive realms of Silicon Valley's technological mainstays.

Its market capitalisation is now so vast that it is larger than Meta (Facebook), Tesla, Netflix, AMD, Intel, and IBM combined.

That is a remarkable feat when considering that NVIDIA's bread and butter core business activity for many years was not software, it was hardware, and hardware in almost every other area of the computer technology business is almost obsolete as we live in a world of hosting and cloud-based internet services.

NVIDIA's high-quality graphics cards have for many years been the staple ingredient within machines built for specialist purposes such as gaming or professional digital currency mining. However times change and NVIDIA has angled itself firmly toward being the hardware manufacturer to handle AI, boosting its value tremendously.

Market Analysis: EUR/USD Slips as USD/CHF Targets Upside Break
BcjQ5E1.jpeg

EUR/USD started a downside correction from the 1.0890 resistance. USD/CHF is rising and might aim a move toward the 0.9155 resistance.

Important Takeaways for EUR/USD and USD/CHF Analysis Today

  • The Euro struggled to clear the 1.0890 resistance and declined against the US Dollar.

The Dollar Resumes Growth After a Corrective Pullback
6yIeMHh.png

Last week, there were several local downward trends in dollar pairs. For instance, the pound/dollar pair strengthened to 1.2800, euro/dollar buyers almost updated the recent high at 1.0895, and the usd/jpy pair remained below the crucial resistance at 157.00 for several days. However, the “dollar bears” couldn’t maintain their advantage, and by yesterday, sharp pullbacks and the formation of bullish combinations in usd pairs were observed.

So, what is the main reason for the return of dollar buyers to the market?

  • The S&P/CS Composite-20 (USA) housing price composite index, excluding seasonal adjustments, was higher than forecasted at 7.4% versus 7.3%.
  • The US Consumer Confidence Index from CB rose to 102.0 against expectations of 96.0.
  • The probability of an interest rate cut by the Federal Reserve decreased to 51%, from 65% a week ago.

Elon Musk Contributes to NVDA Price Surge to a New Record
1HNe2DX.png

Yesterday, on Tuesday, Nvidia's stock price reached a historic high, surpassing the $1,130 mark, increasing by almost 7% relative to Monday's closing price. This happened after a turbulent past week, during which Nvidia published a very strong report that led to an over 8% rise in its stock price in one day.

Thus, since the beginning of May, NVDA's price has increased by approximately 34%. The latest surge in bullish sentiment was driven by the news that Elon Musk's company xAI is purchasing Nvidia AI chips for a new powerful supercomputer.

Investor’s Business Daily reports that in a presentation for investors, Musk stated that:
→ xAI will require up to 100,000 specialised semiconductors for training and launching the next version of its AI chatbot, Grok.
→ The supercomputer will use Nvidia H100 graphics processors.
→ Musk hopes to bring the supercomputer, which he referred to as a “gigafactory of computation,” online by autumn 2025.

Analysing NVDA's stock price last week, we:
→ Updated the upward channel;
→ Suggested that on a bullish impulse, NVDA’s price could approach the median line of the upward channel.

GBP/JPY at Highest Level in Over 15 Years
2yLvtwL.png

As shown by today's GBP/JPY chart, the exchange rate has not only surpassed the psychological level of 200 yen per pound but has also exceeded the peak of 29 April 2024. The market is now experiencing prices last seen in 2008.

The main driver of the pound’s strength against the yen is the difference in monetary policies enacted by the central banks. While the Bank of England maintains a rate of 5.5%, in Japan it is 0.10% (having been kept unchanged at -0.10% from January 2016 until March 2024 – over 8 years).

Can the GBP/JPY rate go even higher? Fundamentally, if the imbalance in interest rates persists, it creates conditions for a continued rally.

According to Business Recorder, the Bank of Japan (BOJ) will act cautiously within its inflation targeting framework. BOJ Governor Kazuo Ueda noted that some issues are "exceptionally challenging" for Japan after many years of ultra-loose monetary policy.

“The absence of significant interest rate movements poses a considerable obstacle in assessing the economy’s response to changes in interest rates,” he said.
