Market News – Stocks advance, Kiwi & Dollar dip.


Trading Leveraged Products is risky

Economic Indicators & Central Banks:

The rising political uncertainties, and the wait for more data to clarify the Fed’s rate cut path, are combining with summer doldrums to keep trading quiet and range bound.

* Fed Chair Powell did not say anything really new in his Senate testimony, as expected. There were a few nuances, though, that further support expectations that the next move will be a cut.
* Financials led the way for the broad index after Chair Powell indicated a re-proposal for Basel III rules would be sent out, giving banks more time and breathing room.
* RBNZ delivers dovish hold, as the comments set the stage for a rate cut later in the year and the NZD weakened as local bonds rallied. New Zealand’s central bank maintained its official cash rate at 5.50%, but signalled that it is inching closer to a rate cut. The statement said “restrictive monetary policy has significantly reduced consumer price inflation, with the committee expecting headline inflation to return to within the 1-3 percent target range in the second half of the year.”
* China’s consumer prices saw a slight increase in June, staying close to zero for the 5th month, indicating ongoing deflationary pressures hindering economic recovery. Meanwhile, factory-gate prices remained in deflation.
* Japan’s largest banks urged the Bank of Japan to significantly reduce its monthly bond purchases during recent central bank hearings.



Asian & European Open:

* Wall Street and Treasuries were mixed. The S&P500 advanced 0.10% to 5577, a 6th straight day of gains (the best since the start of the year) and another fresh high, the 36th record for 2024. The NASDAQ was 0.11% firmer at 18,429, also at a new peak, its 26th for the year.
* Japanese stocks advanced, while those in China and Australia declined. Nikkei surged to another record high, approaching 42,000.
* The heavy tilt towards the tech sector has heightened risks if the AI-driven rally stumbles. Valuations are high, and earnings growth is expected to slow, adding uncertainty for investors banking on Big Tech’s continued rise. Citigroup strategists, suggest it might be time to take profits in leading AI stocks, despite strong sentiment and better-than-expected free cash flow projections for these firms.

Financial Markets Performance:

* The USDIndex declined from 105.208 back to 104.70.
* Oil prices have continued to decline, as Chinese demand and continued uncertainty over the timeline for Fed interest rate cuts outweighed signs of another inventory draw in the US.
* Gold slightly higher at 2372 amid Dollar strength.

Always trade with strict risk management. Your capital is the single most important aspect of your trading business.

Stocks Rise as Analysts Predict Inflation Will Drop to a 5-Month Low.


Trading Leveraged Products is risky

* NASDAQ’s most influential stocks witness significant gains on Wednesday including Apple +1.88%, Microsoft +1.46% and Alphabet +1.17%.
* Investors fix their attention on today’s US Inflation rate which analysts expect to fall from 3.3% to 3.1%. Markets predict US Core Inflation to remain at 3.4%.
* KeyBanc Capital Markets raised NVIDIA’s target price from $130 to $180, maintaining the overweight rating.
* Gold increases in value ahead of today’s inflation data and outperforms all currencies.

USA100 (NASDAQ) – Stocks Rise Ahead Of Today’s Inflation Reading!

The NASDAQ increases in value for a fourth consecutive day as investors price in a rate cut for September. On Wednesday, the price of the index rose 1.05%, but the bullish price movement will depend on today’s inflation reading. Investors are anticipating a decrease in inflation, but if this expectation is not met, it could result in downward pressure. However, if inflation does decline to 3.1% or lower shareholders are less likely to sell shares ahead of earnings season. As a result, the bullish trend is potentially likely to continue.



The September cut scenario has become the main outcome due to the rise in unemployment and the change in the tone of the Federal Reserve. Earlier this week the Fed Chairman said the employment sector is showing signs of weakening while yesterday the Fed Governor advised inflation will reach the target without the Unemployment Rate rising much further. The lower interest rates support the economy but also makes bonds and the US Dollar less attractive.

Only 25% of the NASDAQ’s 100 stocks declined on Wednesday which applied minimal pressure. The bullish price movement was largely driven by the top 8 most influential stocks which all rose in value. These 8 stocks make up 49.08% of the whole index. The only stocks which applied minor pressure were Netflix which fell 1.18% and Intuit, down 2.70%. The two stocks hold a weight of 3.08%.

One of the stocks which have significantly supported the NASDAQ in 2023 and 2024 so far is NVIDIA. According to leading analysts, the company’s quarterly report is set slightly later than its main competitors. This could provide an advantage and an opportunity to improve its performance. KeyBanc Capital Markets have raised the target price from $130 to $180. They attribute this to higher-than-expected demand for GB200 graphics processors, particularly the more expensive NVL72 configuration, which is gaining more interest compared to the previously popular NVL36. Wolfe Research LLC has also adjusted its price target from $125 to $150.

Currently the price is trading within a symmetrical triangle meaning the price shows a lower high but a higher low. Volatility is likely to remain minimal until the US Consumer Price Index. If the Consumer Price Index reads as expected and the price increases, traders should be cautious that profits are not hit, and the price retraces. In the medium to longer term, the price remains above the 75-Period EMA and 100-Period SMA. This indicates buyers are controlling the market. Based on price action, buy signals are likely to materialize again if the price rises above $20,697.40.
XAUUSD – Gold Gains Momentum, Capitalizing on the Weaker Dollar!

The price of Gold has benefited from the lower price of the US Dollar and the pricing of an interest rate cut by September. The commodity is forming higher highs and higher lows, which is a positive sign, but traders should note retracements are quick and large, meaning caution is wise.



Another positive sign is the price of Gold is currently performing better than all other currencies within the market. However, investors will largely be monitoring the US Dollar which is currently declining 0.08%.

A weaker US Dollar has the potential to support the price of gold; however, if inflation falls significantly below current expectations, it may undermine gold’s bullish price action. This is because gold is also used as a hedge against inflation. According to the Fibonacci retracement levels, buy signals will form if the price breaks above the $2,381.62 levels.

Market News – The Aftermaths of Inflation.


Trading Leveraged Products is risky

Economic Indicators & Central Banks:

* Treasuries surged after a much cooler than expected CPI report that saw Fed funds futures price in a -25 bp rate cut for September, more than 2 quarter point moves over the rest of the year, and 3 cuts by the end of Q1 2025.
* Australian and New Zealand government bonds rallied, taking cues from their US counterparts.
* European stocks open muted, following a sharp decline in Asian equities driven by a significant drop in technology stocks. Despite this recent downturn, global stocks are on track for their 6th consecutive weekly gain, the longest streak since March, buoyed by expectations of Fed easing which have supported overall risk sentiment.

Asian & European Open:

* Wall Street was not as enthused, although it’s coming off of prior strong gains. The NASDAQ slumped -1.95% and the S&P500 slid -0.88% to 5584. Cash fled some of the safety of the mag 7. The Dow was up 0.08%.
* Disappointing earnings from Delta and PepsiCo weighed heavily.
* The Euro Stoxx 50 futures showed minimal change, mirroring the stability seen in US stock futures after a tech-driven selloff on Thursday.



Financial Markets Performance:

* The USDIndex took it on the chin, falling to 104.07 from the high of 104.99 on the dovish Fed outlook.
* A lot of the weakness came from JPY as USDJPY crashed 4-handles, as there were reports of intervention. The Bank of Japan conducted rate checks with traders, reinforcing the belief that authorities had intervened in the market on Thursday to support the currency.
* Oil prices rallied for a 3rd day in a row boosted by the US inflation which cooled broadly in June to the slowest pace since 2021. Bets rose that the Fed will start to reduce borrowing costs this quarter.
* Gold corrects some of yesterday’s gains, back to 2400.
