  • The Bank of Japan-inspired rally in the Japanese Yen is seen weighing on the USD, which, in turn, is seen lending some support to the EUR/USD pair. That said, a combination of factors continues to act as a tailwind for the greenback and keeps a lid on any meaningful upside for the major, at least for the time being.
  • Investors seem worried that a surge in COVID-19 cases in China could delay a broader reopening. This, in turn, overshadows the optimism over the easing of lockdown measures and takes its toll on the global risk sentiment. This is evident from a weaker tone around the equity markets and should benefit the safe-haven buck.

    GBP/USD

    • An unexpected hawkish twist by the Bank of Japan triggers a massive rally in the Japanese Yen, which, in turn, weighs on the greenback. Apart from this, an intraday recovery in the risk sentiment is seen as another factor undermining the safe-haven buck and acting as a tailwind for the GBP/USD pair. That said, any meaningful upside still seems elusive, warranting some caution for aggressive bullish traders and positioning for a further intraday appreciating move.
    • It is worth recalling that the US central bank indicated that it will continue to raise rates to crush inflation. Furthermore, policymakers projected at least an additional 75 bps increases in borrowing costs by the end of 2023. This, in turn, leads to a fresh leg up in the US Treasury bond yields and favours the USD bulls. Apart from this, a dovish outcome from the Bank of England meeting last week might contribute to capping the upside for the GBP/USD pair.

Meanwhile, the 20 SMA continued developing above longer ones despite it started turning flat, suggests bulls not exhausted yet.

    XAU/USD

    • The Gold price is higher on Tuesday due to volatility in the market that has sent the USD Dollar lower on the back of a surge in the Japanese Yen following a surprise move by the Bank of Japan (BoJ) in Asian markets. The pair ended Tuesday at around 1818, still bullish in the daily chart.
    • A decision by BoJ to raise a cap on the yield of its 10-year Japanese government bonds sent markets into a state of shock and  lured investors away from US debt. The BoJ is allowing 10-year bonds to trade at interest rates up to 0.5%, up from 0.25% and such a rise in the cap encourages domestic buying of its bonds. However, the Gold price has rallied despite the subsequent lower global borrowing costs and sell-off in bonds across the world, likely as a direct effect of a cheaper US Dollar.
    • Nevertheless, the US Dollar has sunk as per the DXY index as the BoJ switches gears which sent the Yen around 5% higher vs the USD. USD/JPY fell from a pre-BoJ high of 137.40 to a low of 130.56. Consequently, the US Dollar as measured against a basket of currencies, including the yen which makes up 13.6% of the basket fell to a low of 103.77. DXY was trading at a high of 104.90 before the announcement by the BoJ.
    • Gold price stabilized around 1818, up for the day and bullish in the daily chart. The gold price still stabilized above 20 and 50 SMA, suggesting bullish strength in short term. Meanwhile, the 20 SMA continued accelerating north and developing above 50 SMA, indicating bulls not exhausted yet. On upside, the immediate resistance is 1825, break above this level will open the gate for more advance to 1848 area.
    • From a technical perspective, the RSI indicator hold above the midline and stabilized around 64, suggesting bullish strength. The Momentum indicator stabilized above the midline, suggests upward potentials. On downside, the immediate support is 1798, below this area may resume the decline to 1784.

    • It was a small change from the BoJ but market participants are seen a lot more. The impact of the announcement shows that a more significant policy shift could take place much sooner than expected. Until a few hours ago, higher US yields meant a weaker Japanese Yen and bearish pressure for gold. The Japanese Yen is having the best day in years across the board.
