I’m Brad Alexander and, on behalf of Valutrades, today we will take a look at USDJPY, USDCHF, Brent Crude (UKOil), Gold (XAUUSD), and EURUSD.

We are seeing USD strength, in some cases from the beginning of the month, but in other cases, for a few weeks now.Screenshot 2022-03-14 at 11.18.57

Curiously, the safe-haven currencies, like CHF and JPY, are weaker against USD despite the huge geopolitical tensions.Screenshot 2022-03-14 at 11.19.07

We are expecting an Interest Rate rise from the US Federal Reserve on Wednesday so watch for volatility based on this and the war in Ukraine.Screenshot 2022-03-14 at 11.19.27

The Bank of England and the Bank of Japan will also be announcing Interest Rate decisions this week.

Last week, we looked at Gold reading $2,000 and it went well above.Screenshot 2022-03-14 at 11.19.36

It has since retreated below this key level of $1975 and we will look at this again tomorrow.Screenshot 2022-03-14 at 11.19.45

Brent Crude has also fallen back to $110 per barrel and price action filled the gap from last week.

However, we must continue to monitor the news from Russia, as any disruption in supply will drive prices higher.
