Welcome to Asia in the Balance: A Deep Dive into Financial Predictions, where we provide you with the latest insights into the financial world. Here’s a recap of what happened in the US session and what to expect in the October 27, 2023 Asia session.

US Session Recap

In the US session, the European Central Bank (ECB) maintained its primary refinancing rate at 4.5%, surprising no one after consecutive rate hikes. ECB President Christine Lagarde’s hawkish tone indicated potential future hikes, influencing the Euro’s market movement. Additionally, the US reported a 4.9% YoY GDP growth rate for Q3, slightly higher than the forecasted 4.5%. However, increased unemployment claims hinted at a potential weakness in the US labor market, affecting the Dollar Index (DXY).

Asia in the Balance – A Deep Dive into Financial Predictions

Dollar Index (DXY)

The PCE Price Index and UoM Consumer Sentiment data releases are key events to watch. A higher-than-expected PCE print might boost demand for the US dollar, while an optimistic UoM Consumer Sentiment result could further strengthen it.

Next 24 Hours Bias: Medium Bearish

Gold (XAU)

Like DXY, Gold’s performance hinges on the PCE Price Index and UoM Consumer Sentiment data. A strong US dollar might exert downward pressure on Gold prices.

Next 24 Hours Bias: Weak, Bullish

Australian Dollar (AUD)

With no major news events, the AUD might remain strong initially. However, if the PCE Price Index indicates high inflation, the Aussie could face selling pressure during the US session.

Next 24 Hours Bias: Medium Bullish

New Zealand Dollar (NZD)

Like the AUD, the NZD might start the day strong but could face headwinds if the PCE Price Index suggests increasing inflationary pressures in the US.

Next 24 Hours Bias: Medium Bullish

Japanese Yen (JPY)

Japan’s inflationary pressures might lead to a rethink of the ultra-dovish monetary policy stance. If this happens, USD/JPY could experience further downward movement.

Next 24 Hours Bias: Medium Bearish

Euro (EUR)

The ECB’s decision to maintain rates and Lagarde’s hawkish tone initially weakened the Euro, but it recovered during the US session. Global market sentiments could influence the Euro’s movement.

Next 24 Hours Bias: Medium Bullish

Swiss Franc (CHF)

The CHF might face fluctuations due to a waning US dollar demand. Monitor the global market sentiment for further insights into its movement.

Next 24 Hours Bias: Weak Bearish

British Pound (GBP)

The GBP rebounded against the US dollar in the evolving global market sentiment. The Bank of England’s decision to maintain the Bank Rate at 5.25% also impacts the Pound’s movement.

Next 24 Hours Bias: Medium Bullish

Canadian Dollar (CAD)

The CAD showed strength, causing USD/CAD to retreat. Continued CAD strength might lead to a further decline in USD/CAD.

Next 24 Hours Bias: Medium Bearish

Oil

Oil prices fluctuated due to tensions in the Middle East. Market sentiments and developments in the region will continue to influence oil prices.

Next 24 Hours Bias: Weak, Bullish
