Market Analysis: Markets Awaiting US Inflation Data

FXOpen

Yesterday, the major currency pairs were trading in fairly narrow ranges. Positive data on the US producer price index for September and the publication of the latest Fed minutes did not contribute to increased volatility in the market. Most likely, investors are expecting today's inflation data in the US. If the indicator is at the forecast level or even lower, this could lead to a change in the Fed's monetary policy, which in turn could contribute to the start of a medium-term downward impulse for the US dollar. Conversely, high inflation could force officials to keep rates high for a long time, which could trigger a new wave of greenback growth.

USD/CAD

After a sharp decline last week, the USD/CAD pair found strong support in the 1.3600-1.3570 range. At these marks, there are alligator lines on the daily timeframe. Price behaviour at a given location can provide more clues as to the future direction of the pair. A sharp rebound from current levels could return the price back to 1.3700-1.3780. But a move below 1.3520 may contribute to a renewed decline in the direction of lower fractals at 1.3415 and 1.3370.

In addition to inflation data, today at 15:30 GMT+3, it is worth paying attention to the weekly data on applications for unemployment benefits in the United States. Also, at 18:00 GMT+3, weekly data on crude oil inventories will be released.

GBP/USD

The GBP/USD pair showed moderate growth yesterday. Buyers retested 1.2300 and strengthened above this level, but so far, there has been no confident upward dynamics.

Today at 11:30 GMT+3, we are waiting for the publication of research on the Bank of England’s credit conditions. A little later, data on the main Thomson Reuters/Ipsos consumer sentiment index (PCSI) in the UK for October will be released.

XAU/USD

The temporary weakness of the American currency and the aggravation of the geopolitical situation in the world contributed to a sharp pullback in precious metals. Using the chaos trading strategy, in the XAU/USD pair, we observe the development of a reversal bullish bar from October 6. At the moment, the price is trading around the intertwined alligator lines on the daily timeframe. A move above 1,890.00-1,900.00 could contribute to the resumption of medium-term growth. A rebound from current levels could return the price to 1,830.00-1,810.00.
