Agenda of the day;
17:30 US Crude Oil Stocks
20:45 Speech by ECB President Lagarde
21:00 US FOMC Meeting Minutes
EURUSD – Tries to Gain Strength from 1.0765 Ahead of FOMC Minutes…
Having regressed to 1.0765 support yesterday, the pair tested this support twice in two weeks. There is a slight reaction from this support today but away from 1.0855 resistance.
It remains calm before the FOMC minutes, which will be released tonight at 9 PM. In these minutes, if there is a note from the general members regarding the upcoming meetings that the rate hike may be continued and/or it is emphasized that the concerns about inflation are still very strong, the movements in favor of the dollar may continue from where they left off. For this reason, we care about the minutes at 21.00.
USDJPY – Uptrend Continues, 138.80 Resistance Struggling…
The USDJPY pair is in an uptrend again from where it left off today after breaking 137.95 and confirming strong momentum in favor of the dollar. With today’s move, 138.80 resistance is being tested. If this region is exceeded, 142.30 resistance may come to the fore step by step.
While the movement continues in favor of the dollar in general, this situation can be broken if the 137.95 support is broken with the daily candle. For this reason, we attach importance to support and resistance follow-ups.
Ounce Gold – Recently Between 1983/1955 Horizontal Band…
Yellow metal tested the 1955 support twice in a short time and got a reaction from there. With this reaction, the yellow metal, which came to the 1983 resistance, fell back to the 1972 intermediate support during the day. In intraday pricing, 1983 will be followed as the main resistance and 1955 as the main support. While price movements are followed within this band, the FOMC minutes at 21.00 tonight may bring volatility in the yellow metal.
