US Session Review

Tuesday’s trading session in the US is marked by relative calm, with no significant economic events besides Germany’s inflation data. Germany, the Eurozone’s largest economy, has been grappling with subdued economic growth, particularly in its manufacturing sector. The latest inflation figures reflected this trend, with headline and core inflation easing again, falling below forecasts. Consequently, the Euro faced downward pressure, dipping to 1.0690 before clawing back above 1.0700 by the session’s end.

Asia Session Outlook

Australian Dollar (AUD)

Australia’s retail sales have seen a notable rebound, with consecutive months of growth. However, expectations for the latest retail sales figures suggest a slower growth rate. A positive surprise could bolster the Australian Dollar, trading around 0.6560 at the start of the session.

Market Watch: Currency and Commodity Trends in Asia

Dollar Index (DXY)

Today, the Dollar Index (DXY) will focus on the Employment Cost Index and CB Consumer Confidence data releases. Softening employment cost growth and consumer confidence could amplify selling pressure on the dollar.

Gold (XAU)

Gold prices could see upward momentum if the US Employment Cost Index and Consumer Confidence data disappoint, potentially leading to increased selling pressure on the dollar.

New Zealand Dollar (NZD)

NZD traders will closely watch the Employment Change and Unemployment Rate data releases. Any weakness in employment figures will likely exert downward pressure on the Kiwi Dollar.

Japanese Yen (JPY)

Speculation surrounding potential intervention by the Bank of Japan (BoJ) contributed to significant volatility in USD/JPY. Traders should remain vigilant for further market-moving rumors.

Euro (EUR)

Expectations lean towards a moderation in inflation, shaping the Euro’s performance around the Eurozone CPI data release. A soft CPI figure could weigh on the Euro.

Swiss Franc (CHF)

Persistent overhead pressure on the Swiss Franc will likely confine USD/CHF trading within a range of 0.9080 to 0.9150.

British Pound (GBP)

If demand for the dollar wanes, GBP/USD may experience downward pressure, albeit with limited movements and the absence of major news events.

Canadian Dollar (CAD)

Canada’s GDP data release may influence USD/CAD trading, with positive growth figures potentially strengthening the Canadian Dollar.

Oil

Oil prices may react to China’s Manufacturing PMI report and the API Crude Oil Stock update, with potential for volatility based on market sentiment towards global manufacturing and inventory levels.

The Asia session will likely see varied movements across currency pairs and commodities, influenced by economic data releases and market sentiment. Traders should remain attentive to key events and potential catalysts for price action.
