I’m Brad Alexander and in this week’s Market Blast Fundamentals let’s take a look at the Nikkei (JP225), Natural Gas, GBPUSD and Gold (XAUUSD).

No, you are not looking at a reflection on a pond.Screenshot 2022-12-05 at 19.08.45

This is how Gold is inversely correlated to the USD with a four-hour chart on the USD Index vs a four-hour chart on Gold.

The rise in price action on Gold is a direct result of a weaker USD.

Even last week’s very good Non-Farm Payrolls number could not stop the weak run of the USD.

In fact, it was a perfect Counter-Trend Price Action trade with most USD pairs.Screenshot 2022-12-05 at 19.08.59

For example, price action on GBPUSD fell almost 160 pips into this key level of support and a long trade was there for the taking with over 200 pips available on the upside.Screenshot 2022-12-05 at 19.09.08

The only real US news available this week is a PMI but we await an Australian Interest Rate decision and GDP, a Canadian Interest Rate decision and a PMI, and European Retail Sales, Employment and GDP.

Natural Gas has become quite famous for its gaps so let’s see if price action can fill this one.November 2022 Screenshot 2022-12-05 at 14.50.59

We will wait for a selling opportunity as we don’t want to trade against the trend.

If price action fills the gap and reaches a key level, we will see it tomorrow in our Technicals video.

If you read our monthly blog you would have seen that Asian equities are bullish thanks to better news about Chinese COVID lockdowns.Screenshot 2022-12-05 at 19.09.25

Here, however, is an opportunity to buy the dip on the Nikkei on a bearish pullback.
