Valutrades Market Blast Fundamentals 5 August 2019

   

Welcome to this week’s Market Blast Fundamentals where we will look at the Hong Kong 50 Index, NZDUSD, AUDUSD, the Japanese Yen (JPY) and Gold (XAUUSD).

5 August 2019 Fundamentals

New tariffs from the US against China, China’s suspending agricultural purchases from the US and another seizure of an oil tanker by Iran has sent Gold and the Japanese Yen soaring.


Gold may be heading for a key level of $1475 from 6 and 8 years ago.

Gold and the JPY are “safe havens” for investors so don’t expect the situation to change until we get better news from US China trade talks.


As well, Chinese trade disruptions almost always affect Kiwi and Aussie and the bear runs continue with AUDUSD heading for a 10-year low.

Watch for Interest Rate decisions this week from both New Zealand and Australia which will certainly cause volatility with these pairs.


The Hang Seng Index has gapped again to the downside with local protests and storms, in Hong Kong, severely disrupting the local economy.


Having said that, all the major stock indices are falling on the US/China Trade talk’s bad news so we won’t look for any reversals on pretty much anything until this changes.


That’s all for now. Happy trading with Valutrades and we will see you tomorrow.
