Interest Rates in Focus. Gold Higher on Recession Fears. Indices Lower with a Gap.


Hey Valutraders!

I’m Brad Alexander and in this week’s Market Blast Fundamentals let’s take a look at Gold (XAUUSD), the NASDAQ (US100), GBPUSD, and EURUSD.

Last week’s US Inflation data was worse than expected so the markets feel that the US Federal Reserve will increase Interest Rates by 0.5%.Screenshot 2022-06-13 at 10.53.55

The original indication was 0.25% and this caused a sudden increase in value of USD.

In most pairs we saw movement of 150 pips since Friday and, in the case of GBPUSD, we saw 220 pips.

The final decision will be this Wednesday so expect volatility.

The Bank of England will announce its Interest Rate decision Thursday along with the Swiss National Bank.Screenshot 2022-06-13 at 10.54.16

Also, the Bank of Japan will announce its Interest Rate Decision Friday.

The fear now, with all these Interest Rate rises, is that many economies could be heading into recessions.Screenshot 2022-06-13 at 10.54.25

Despite the higher USD, price action on Gold went in the opposite direction based on a bad Consumer Confidence report.

We will take a look at this tomorrow.Screenshot 2022-06-13 at 10.54.35

Almost all global stock indices, like this chart on the NASDAQ, opened with a gap to the downside this morning based on the central banks’ raising Interest Rates.

These levels are also elevating fears of recession.
