    Mid-week technical outlook: Gold waits for Fed decision



    [​IMG]




    The Federal Reserve monetary policy announcement later today will be the most important economic event of September.

    Although the central bank is widely expected to leave interest rates unchanged, much of the focus will be directed towards the economic projections, Powell’s press conference and updated ‘dot plot’ forecast of interest rate moves. Given how this will be the first meeting after the Fed announced its new average inflation targeting (AIT) framework, there could be some volatility in the Dollar as investors sift for clarity during the meeting.


    Back in June, policy members projected GDP to decline 6.5% in 2020 while unemployment was seen rising 9.3%. However, the current unemployment rate of 8.4% is already below the medium forecast - something that could allow the Fed to express some confidence over the US economy.


    [​IMG]

    Let’s be honest, the US economy is certainly not out of the woods yet despite the improving unemployment rate.

    Rising coronavirus cases in major states coupled with the congressional stalemate over a new fiscal package remain major threats to the country’s economic outlook. Markets expect the Fed to signal that interest rates will remain unchanged and close to zero through the end of 2023! But It will still be interesting to hear Jerome Powell’s thoughts on the latest developments, in addition to how high or how long the Fed will allow inflation to overshoot the 2% target.

    What does this all mean for Gold?

    Gold seems to be drawing strength from a softer Dollar this morning as anticipation mounts ahead of the Federal Reserve meeting.


    Regardless of the choppiness witnessed over the past few weeks, the precious metal remains underpinned by low-to-negative government bond yields, rising COVID-19 cases in the United States and a tired Dollar.

    Price action suggests that the precious metal is in search of a fresh directional catalyst to breakout of the current range. This may come in the form of the Fed meeting today.

    After the Federal Reserve’s policy shift to let inflation rip, the big question on the mind of many investors is how will the central bank put this policy to action? Clarity on this could provide Gold a tailwind as the metal is seen as a hedge against inflation. Additionally, a dovish sound Fed could weaken the Dollar, further supporting Gold prices.


    Looking at the technical picture, strong support can be found around $1910 and resistance around $1985. The solid daily close above the $1952 intraday resistance level may open the doors towards $1985. If $1952 proves to be unreliable support, prices may decline back towards $1910.

    Stocks tumble after Powell’s warnings over US economic recovery



    [​IMG]




    Fed chair Jerome Powell poured cold water over stock markets during his latest press conference on Wednesday, as he expressed doubts whether the US economic recovery can persist at the same pace without more fiscal stimulus.

    Asian equities are in a sea of red, after US stock indices posted declines on Wednesday. The Dow Jones index was the sole exception, as it eked out a 0.13 percent advance, aided by the climbs in the industrials and financials segments. The US central bank left interest rates unchanged at the record low during their meeting this week, and suggested that rates could be kept near zero until the year 2023, or at least until the US can return to maximum employment and reach the average two percent inflation. Such an ultra-accommodative interest rate environment should keep global equities well bid over the coming years. In technical terms, the Dow may be able to call upon its 50-day moving (MA) average to guide the index higher eventually. However, at the time of writing, the FXTM trader's sentiment is short on the Wall Street 30 (Mini).


    [​IMG]



    However, stocks bulls may not get the near-term boost that they desire, considering the stalemate in negotiations over the next round of US fiscal stimulus. Despite US President Donald Trump saying on Wednesday evening that he was more open to bridging the gap with Democrats, markets remain doubtful that the next support package can arrive before the elections on November 3. Global investors are also fearing a delayed outcome to the polls, with the political uncertainty further delaying the much-need financial support. Such a major event risk, if it happens, is then likely to trigger heightened volatility in global equities. At the time of writing, US stock futures are edging slightly lower.


    The concerns over the delayed US fiscal stimulus are also set to colour the jobless claim data due out later Thursday, with both initial claims as well as continuing claims expected to show slight declines. Yet, with about 13 million Americans still having to rely on unemployment benefits along with the more than 800,000 still being added to that list per week, such figures only underscore the need for more financial support for the vulnerable segments of the US economy. Further signs that the recovery in the US jobs market is stalling, even as the world’s largest economy presses on with its reopening, could trigger more risk aversion which may push the Dollar index closer to its 50-day MA.

    Bank of England pour fuel onto the GBP fire



    [​IMG]




    Although the BoE kept policy measures and rates unchanged at its meeting today, it said it had explored plans to take interest rates into negative territory if necessary. The bank’s main scenario is based on the UK signing a Brexit trade deal before the end of the year, so the market has reacted strongly in light of the negative recent headlines and increasing risk of a no-deal. At one point, the GBP was one of the weakest major currencies on the day, down nearly 0.7% while money markets have been given little choice but to price in negative rates in early 2021.

    Although it would seem that more QE and bond buying will take place ahead of negative rates, sub-zero borrowing costs are not just in the toolbox now, but briefings are taking place on how to implement them effectively. And that is the sixty-four million pound question as negative rates have failed to boost the economies of Japan and Europe, hurting the banking sector in the process who park their funds with the central banks.

    The damage to Sterling has been done and the recent softening in the UK government stance by giving a veto to Parliament over some measures of the Internal Market bill doesn’t appear to be enough to change the odds so far of any kind of success in the trade talks. The 50-day Moving Average at 1.2993 was too much of a hurdle for Cable but the pair has found near-term support at 1.2850.

    Fed aftermath leaves risk off, for now

    The Dollar is consolidating its gains from overnight with US stocks opening firmly lower as the disappointment from last night’s meeting grows. The Fed delivered the minimum dovish statement on QE as the bar to ‘outdove’ itself and shake the prevailing stance was high. Chair Powell emphasised the steady profile of rates in the coming years and the fact that data has surprised to the upside is clearly positive, with the upcoming elections and the pressure now on government to do more.

    Further out, in an average inflation targeting regime, what matters is continuously easier financial conditions, and this ultimately means the Dollar trading weaker in the Fed’s fight for higher inflation. DXY’s pop higher earlier this morning bumped up near to resistance at this month’s peak around 93.66. If prices continue to struggle, then bears will attack 92.70/80 as the first support ahead of the big figure.

    Supreme Court battle presents another major risk for investors



    [​IMG]





    Asian stocks and US equity futures are mixed, as global investors have been dealt with a major twist just six weeks before the US Presidential elections.


    [​IMG]


    Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg passed away on Friday, which means her seat has now been vacated in the highest federal court in the land. US President Donald Trump and his fellow Republicans are now rushing to fill that seat, as this appointment would be monumental in shaping the Supreme Court’s ideological framework for many years to come, potentially even beyond the tenure of the next President of the United States. And a more conservative-leaning jurist would be most appealing for President Trump’s voter base, something which Democratic nominee Joe Biden would want to prevent.

    In other words, the November 3rd elections is set to become not just be about who occupies the White House, but also the Supreme Court.

    Since the pandemic broke out, market participants have been hoping for more stimulus packages from policymakers, and Washington DC has been locked in battle between Republicans and Democrats over the next round of US fiscal support.

    However, this fight for the Supreme Court vacancy could dominate the political agenda in the lead up to the elections, perhaps at the expense of the next round of fiscal stimulus. This might deflate some of the optimism that’s still baked into US equities about more incoming financial support for the world’s largest economy to boost the performance of stock markets. Instead, it adds another major element of uncertainty over the next 44 days.

    With the Dow Jones index now testing its 50-day moving average, a break below this support level could make the benchmark index susceptible to further declines until it can find a steadier footing. At the time of writing, the FXTM Trader's Sentiment on the Wall Street 30 (Mini) remains short.


    [​IMG]




    This turn of events means that fundamentally-driven investors who have been paying attention solely on the US economy and policymakers’ response to the pandemic may have to focus a lot more on the political narrative over the coming weeks. Although voting for the next President of the United States is already underway in several states, whoever can best galvanize their supporters over the Supreme Court battle could have the upper hand in the Presidential race. And as we know, the eventual winner of the November 3rd polls, and his policies, would certainly have a major bearing over the performance of global markets over the ensuing four years.

    Already, since the passing of Justice Ginsburg, Democratic candidates received over US$103 million in donations on Sunday alone. It now remains to be seen how investors’ funds will flow when US stock markets open for trading this week.

    US stocks near correction territory; is it time to turn bullish?



    [​IMG]




    Equity markets sold off aggressively on Wednesday dragging the S&P 500 2.4% lower for the day and the index is now down nearly 9% from its record high set at the start of the month. We are almost in correction territory for the world’s most followed stock market, which is defined as a 10% fall from its latest peak. Meanwhile the tech heavy Nasdaq composite is already in one, having lost 12% in value from its August highs.

    Investors who missed the six-month rally since March may find it compelling to dive in now as many stocks have corrected their excessive valuations, especially on the Tech front. The likes of Tesla, Apple and Amazon have been dragged 15% to 30% lower in a matter of three weeks. The selloff however has been broader this time, with the energy sector back to the April levels when Oil futures contracts fell into negative territory for the first time ever.

    If the latest selloff is just about the removal of froth and a healthy correction, it may indicate we are near a bottom and it’s time to reaccumulate stocks. This approach would be based on the notion that the US and the global economy will continue heading in the right direction towards a full recovery. And with central banks across the globe remaining extremely generous with their policies, we should not worry about some bumps along the road.

    However, the risks of a stalling recovery are growing as spikes in Covid-19 cases surge across Europe and expectations are for similar trends in the US if no action is taken. The virus continues to be winning at this stage and there are no clear answers as to when a vaccine will be delivered.

    Fed Chair Jerome Powell and some of his colleagues are pressing Congress for more fiscal stimulus, in a sign that monetary policy cannot do much more to support the economy. But heading into the Presidential election and given how divided Congress is, the chances of delivering a stimulus package soon is fading. Add to this President Trump’s refusal to commit to a peaceful handover of power if he loses the election on 3 November and it all makes great ingredients for extreme uncertainty and volatility in asset prices.

    Overall, we continue to see the risks skewed to the downside and more volatility in the next two months, so despite the recent correction in prices, it does not look tempting to turn overly bullish. Unless Congress surprises us with another convincing round of fiscal stimulus, it will be wise to wait for more attractive valuations.

    Gold is another asset that has been sold aggressively over the past four days. This is mainly due to the stronger Dollar, a slight increase in real yields and a break below the $1,900 support level. Expect Gold to gain some traction here as its one of the few assets available to hedge against future expected volatility and the prolonged period of low interest rates.

    Mixed market mood continues



    [​IMG]




    European stocks have hit three-month lows as worries about the prolonged economic damage from coronavirus will not go away, while US markets are volatile, with the Nasdaq on course for its worst month since March. The tech-heavy index touched official ‘correction’ territory just after the open, but this comes after a rampant 65% gain from April to the August highs. It certainly seems like markets are working it out now that fiscal action in the US will be limited to damage control rather than any significant spending package if it comes before the Presidential elections.


    One asset which is liking all this uncertainty and disappointment from a Fed waving the white flag in the last few days, is the Dollar. The greenback has added to its gains through the week as it sits on track for its strongest weekly performance since early-April. The shorts are definitely trimming their positions and running to the ‘close position’ door in quick fashion ahead of the depressing increases in virus contagions.


    [​IMG]

    Fed speakers are again on tap this afternoon after yesterday’s continued line that they will remain on hold for a long time and are unwilling to go the extra mile. While they are not able or willing to inject more momentum into the reflation trade, pushing the onus increasingly on to the fiscal policymakers and Government, markets are in a sombre mood.

    Sunak giving a boost to Sterling

    The pound is the top performing major currency today, as it makes back some of the 4.5% drop it has suffered since the start of September. The UK Chancellor unveiled support measures this afternoon for jobs and businesses, as the Government strives to ‘protect jobs though the winter’. Unemployment would have risen sharply in the coming months as the furlough scheme ends in October, but the new scheme is less generous. More importantly for the Treasury, it will cost alot less which matters when the size of UK public debt was equivalent to UK GDP at the end of July.

    Cable is just about bouncing off the crossing of the 100- and 200-day Moving Averages at 1.2703 and 1.2722 respectively. Prices need to get back above the mid-September lows around 1.2762 to have a chance of building any bullish momentum. Allowing for the current pause in recent selling, indicators looks quite bearish with 1.2650 opening up, if the Moving Averages prove to be feeble in their support.

    Risk off as Trump tests positive for Covid-19



    [​IMG]




    A wave of risk-off sentiment swept through the global financial markets after US President Donald Trump tweeted that he and First Lady Melania Trump have both tested positive for Covid-19 and will begin their quarantine and recovery process. US and European equity futures, along with Asian benchmark indices, all sank on the news. The safe haven Japanese Yen surged by as much as 0.68 percent to hit its strongest level in over a week against the US Dollar, dragging the Dollar index (DXY) back below the 94.0 level.


    [​IMG]




    [​IMG]


    This surge in political uncertainty comes just a month before the November 3rd Presidential Elections, adding to the plethora of concerns that investors are already contending with. This could potentially weigh on the political will to reach an agreement over the next round of US fiscal stimulus, while pushing the Trump administration’s handling of the pandemic front and centre on the election campaign.

    Given this added layer of uncertainty, a growing sense of risk aversion could dominate market sentiment, until there is further clarity about the President’s health response to the coronavirus.

    Is the best of the recovery behind us?



    [​IMG]



    Signs that the spread of coronavirus is gathering pace and dwindling US stimulus hopes have dented sentiment today, with major US stock markets opening up more than 1% lower. While some of the losses have been clawed back on news President Trump is willing to look beyond the current $1.8 trillion package, markets are in gloomy mood.

    The Vix index – the so-called Wall Street ‘fear gauge’ – has jumped up above 28 and is much higher than its long-term average around 20. With market sentiment wilting, the Dollar is trading broadly higher with higher beta currencies taking a pounding. The release of the weekly US initial jobless claims has also not helped the mood, with the print of 895k claims coming in well above the 825k estimate. The figures may be distorted by a processing backlog in California, but the uptick is certainly disconcerting in the current environment.


    PM Johnson will officially decide tomorrow whether the UK will remain at the Brexit negotiating table. The bar for walking away seems very high at the moment, particularly with clear downside risks to the domestic economy from imminent new lockdown measures. There is pressure on France by Germany to soften its demands on fisheries and accept a deal, but the choppy nature of sterling this week is likely to continue as headline havoc continues.

    Potential November rate cut hurting AUD

    Higher beta currencies are struggling today and overnight dovish comments by RBA Governor Lowe have added to the Aussie’s pain. He said the bank could cut rates to 0.1% and leave them at lower levels for longer. This cautious stance outweighed the better-than-expected jobs report, which saw the unemployment rate stay below 7%.

    AUD/USD has sliced through the 100-day Moving Average today at 0.7091 and a strong close below here may see prices test the September low just above 0.70. However, the pair was supported by the 100-day MA back then so the close is crucial.

    Oil: Stuck around $40 with nowhere to go



    [​IMG]





    Later today, OPEC+ is set for a meeting to evaluate the state of the global market. And the outlook isn’t particularly inspiring for Oil bulls.

    Since bouncing out from under the $20/bbl in April, Brent Oil’s recovery has plateaued, even as it keeps its head above the psychologically-important $40/bbl line. Still, the MACD clearly points to waning momentum, with Oil prices having stuck to a sideways range since September. The FXTM Trader's Sentiments also appears rather evenly split, with 52 percent net long on this asset.


    [​IMG]




    Likewise, Crude oil prices are seeing similar fortunes, drifting sideways, even as it consolidates around its 50-day simple moving average. Although the International Energy Agency estimates that the demand for oil worldwide has been restored to 94 percent of pre-pandemic levels, markets are clearly not convinced.


    [​IMG]


    Recall back in April, OPEC and its allies had agreed to aggressively lower their collective output in order to rebalance global markets. From the 9.7 million barrels per day (bpd) that were removed starting May, those production cuts were set to be eased by about 3.9 million bpd at the start of 2021, which is in just 74 days. Their initial hopes that global demand would’ve recovered sufficiently by now to warrant restoring more Oil supply into the world has clearly been decimated by the pandemic’s refusal to go quietly into the night.

    As the OPEC+ Joint Ministerial Monitoring Committee meet on Monday, the alliance will be under pressure to delay their supply ramp-up, given how the global economy is still faltering in its post-pandemic recovery. The total number of Covid-19 cases is nearing the 40 million mark, and major Western economies are still, till this day, battling the coronavirus’s spread within their own borders. While eschewing the nationwide lockdowns that were commonplace during the first half of the year, more targeted restrictions still impede economic activity. With schools shut, work-from-home orders in place, and little allowance for social activities, such measures erode the world’s demand for Oil. Such persistent demand-side concerns ensure that the upside for Oil prices remain capped for the time being.

    At least China is a bright spark in the global economy. The world’s second largest economy grew by 4.9 percent in Q3, while its industrial production and retail sales for September exceeded market expectations. During its Golden Week holidays earlier this month, that were about 425 million trips made across China within a four-day period. However, more major economies need to follow China’s lead and keep the coronavirus in check, before Oil prices can see a sustainable lift.

    Although no decision is expected out of OPEC+ until December 1, the signs are already there that this alliance of major Oil producers may have to keep their output levels suppressed for longer if they are to retain hope that prices can climb higher from current levels. Until there is a vaccine that can help speed up the global economic recovery, perhaps Oil bulls would be content sitting off to the sidelines in the interim.

    New record high for FXTM Social Media Index



    [​IMG]



    Amid the ongoing US election uncertainty, investors stuck to a tried-and-tested play during this pandemic era. With neither Joe Biden nor President Donald Trump having yet attained the 270 electorate votes needed to claim an outright win, market participants flocked to US tech counters once more.

    [​IMG]


    This market action helped propel the FXTM Social Media Index to a new record high, after posting a 6.3 percent gain on Wednesday. That bested the Nasdaq 100’s 4.4 percent advance and the S&P 500’s 2.2 percent climb for the day. The FXTM Social Media Index’s record-setting performance was enabled by the stellar gains in its constituents:


    And with Nasdaq futures edging into the green at the time of writing, that could translate into further gains for the FXTM Social Media index on Thursday as well.

    Big Tech rejoices at divided US government

    Investors continue to be gripped by the latest developments surrounding the US presidential elections, with former vice-president Joe Biden appearing closest to snatching victory. Having just won Michigan and Wisconsin, he is now estimated to be just six electoral votes short of the winning 270.

    Yet, as noted within hours after the polls closed, the expected “blue wave” had evaporated. This sets up a challenging path for any new policies to be pushed through the chambers of the US government. A Biden administration, if he does indeed clinch victory, would be met with stiff opposition from a Republican-controlled Senate. In such a scenario, the heightened regulatory pressures that Democrats wish to impose on Big Tech (including Google, Facebook, Twitter) would first have to overcome stern opposition from across the political divide. As investors did the math as to who will occupy Capitol Hill over the coming years, tech stocks were able to punch higher at the thought that further scrutiny by lawmakers may be blunted by a divided US government.


    At the same time, tech megacaps are set to enjoy pandemic-related tailwinds for a while more. With the US registering 100,000 cases in a single day, physical economic activities are not expected to be restored to pre-pandemic levels anytime soon, which should ensure heightened reliance on tech.

    Standby by tumultuous Thursday?

    Still, we must stop ourselves from getting carried away; the 2020 US presidential elections has not yet reached a conclusive end. Should President Trump’s legal onslaught gain traction and manage to put any state’s electoral votes into doubt, having already launched lawsuits in three different states, that may still spark a bout of risk aversion and prompt global equities to unwind some of the gains in the week so far.

    Beyond the US elections, the Federal Reserve is due to make a policy decision later today, although the FOMC is expected to leave its policy settings unchanged. The weekly US jobless claims is expected to show stubbornly elevated levels of over 700,000 Americans claiming unemployment benefits for the week.

    Still, barring any shocks out of the Fed or the US economic data releases, the latest developments pertaining to the presidential race are expected to hold court over global market sentiment as investors keenly await the declaration of the official winner.
