Important Update: Dollar Under Pressure and Gold Climbs

Dollar Under Pressure Gold Climbs

Financial Markets Update: The dollar is under pressure, gold climbs, and oil faces downward pressure. Key events and expectations outlined.

In the Asian trading session, markets remained subdued as the Dollar Index (DXY) stayed below 101.30, while spot gold prices surged above $2,070 per ounce. Concurrently, crude oil prices faced continued pressure, with WTI oil hovering around $72 per barrel.

Implications for Europe & US Sessions

After 14 consecutive months of contraction, the Chicago Purchasing Managers’ Index (PMI) witnessed a notable surge from 44.0 to 55.8 in November, reaching its highest level since May 2022. Positive developments in Production, New Orders, Inventories, Supplier Deliveries, and Employment components drove the expansion. While December’s estimate at 50.1 suggests a second month of growth, albeit slower, another robust PMI reading could positively influence the Dollar Index (DXY) during the upcoming US session.

Important Update: Dollar Under Pressure and Gold Climbs

Key Events and Expectations

  • Dollar Index (DXY): The Chicago PMI at 2:45 pm GMT will provide insights into the DXY’s performance. A strong PMI reading could bolster the dollar during the US session.
  • Gold (XAU): The robust PMI reading might exert downward pressure on gold during the US session, with a weak bullish bias expected in the next 24 hours.
  • Australian Dollar (AUD): No major news events are insight. The AUD, which rebounded from 0.6825, is expected to remain elevated with a medium bullish bias.
  • Kiwi Dollar (NZD): Similar to the AUD. The NZD is likely to stay elevated with a medium bullish bias.
  • Japanese Yen (JPY): No major news events are happening. The JPY, having gained against the USD, is expected to resume its downtrend with a medium bearish bias.
  • Euro (EUR): No major news events are ahead. The EUR climbed from 1.1060 and could edge higher with a weak bullish bias.
  • Swiss Franc (CHF): Following recent strength, the CHF may resume its downtrend with a strong bearish bias.
  • Pound (GBP): There are no anticipated significant news events. The GBP, finding support around 1.2730, might edge higher with a weak bullish bias.
  • Canadian Dollar (CAD): The CAD, facing downward pressure, will likely continue declining with a strong bearish bias.
  • Oil: Crude oil prices experienced a significant drop, falling under $72 per barrel. The EIA crude oil inventories and easing of shipping disruptions in the Red Sea are contributing factors, leading to a medium bearish bias in the next 24 hours.
