Powell is turning more hawkish

The USD bounced higher as the Fed’s Powell is getting more hawkish. This has sent US yields sharply higher and supported the greenback. Powell said that inflation is too high and that the central bank would consider more aggressive actions to control it. The main risk events for today are speeches by several central bankers (from ECB, SNB and Fed) and tomorrow morning European time the UK CPI numbers move the GBP pairs. Yesterday was a great day! GBPUSD hit my T1 and so did XAUUSD while CADJPY moved to my T2 range (fundamentals are strongly bullish for this market). Hope you made some points! This report is mainly an update on these markets but when I see a trade opportunity I will provide new trade ideas via TIOmarkets Twitter and Telegram so stay tuned! USOIL reacted lower after hitting a key resistance at 111.80. Oil extended the recent rally as EU member countries were weighing whether they should ban Russian oil. Oil is likely to remain a great market for trading as sanctions are likely to move the price strongly in the future too. It definitely is a traders’ market at the moment.

I include Target 1 (T1) and Target 2 (T2) levels (or ranges) in my analysis so that you have an idea of how far the market would probably move if price action supports my trade ideas. The target one is a high probability target while the next target is further away and therefore there’s a greater risk that the market doesn’t reach the level. While I don’t provide investment advice my analysis helps you in your own market analysis and then you can decide how to trade the markets.
GBPUSD is hit my T1 target price at 1.3134 before selling off. Now Cable is once again trading near to a key support level at 1.3110 and trying to recover. The strong rejection yesterday after my T1 target was hit has deteriorated the technicals in this market. As a result, we might see the market testing 1.3088 before a recovery can be sustainable. Therefore, I’m ignoring the T2 until this market shows clearer indications of its intentions. For those of you that are trading GBPUSD intraday today, the nearest key levels are 1.3110, 1.3155 and 1.3169.

GBPNZD missed my T1 by 0.12% and traded lower. The pair is still consolidating and therefore a potential long candidate but downside risks have increased. A break above the descending channel high would be welcome and could help us in getting the T1 filled. Otherwise, it’s more likely that the market will keep on consolidating and possibly tests the recent low at 1.9021.

CADJPY moved to my T2 target zone. I said in Friday’s CADJPY analysis that if the resistance at the latest high is successfully cleared then the market could rally to 95.00 – 95.50. Now this target range has been reached and breached. Fundamentals haven’t changed for either of the economies so the market is still bullish above 95.11. Alternative scenario: The pair drops below the 95.11 support and trades down to the 94.80 – 94.90 range.

Gold hit my T1 yesterday. I published this trade idea on Telegram and Twitter. Gold reacted lower after my analysis but was then bought and rallied to my T1 level at 1940. I will alert you to new opportunities in this market once there is a new opportunity. If 1918 breaks this market could trade all the way down to 1890 or so. But if the level is defended by the bulls we should again look for opportunities on the long side of the market.
