GBP/USD Technical Analysis
lKy8vbt.png

On the hourly chart of GBP/USD at FXOpen, the pair started a fresh decline from the 1.2860 zone. As mentioned in the previous analysis, the British Pound struggled to extend gains and declined below the 1.2800 support level against the US Dollar.

There was a clear move below the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the 1.2706 swing low to the 1.2860 high. The pair even settled below the 1.2765 level and the 50-hour simple moving average.

The pair tested the 1.2740 support zone and the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the 1.2706 swing low to the 1.2860 high.

It is now consolidating losses above the 1.2740 level. On the upside, the GBP/USD chart indicates that the pair is facing resistance near 1.2765 and a connecting bearish trend line. The next major resistance is near the 50-hour simple moving average at 1.2780.

A close above the 1.2780 resistance zone could open the doors for a move toward 1.2825. Any more gains might send it toward 1.2860. If not, the pair could resume its decline below 1.2740. On the downside, there is a key support forming near 1.2710.

If there is a downside break below the 1.2710 support, the pair could accelerate lower. The next major support is near the 1.2690 zone, below which the pair could test 1.2650. Any more losses could lead the pair toward the 1.2550 support.

NZD/USD Exchange Rate Falls from Nearly 5-Month High
38lxW4p.png


The NZD/USD exchange rate has dropped from its highest level in nearly five months. On Wednesday, following the release of US inflation data, the NZD/USD rate exceeded 0.6220 for the first time since 15 January 2024.

However, today the rate has fallen approximately 1.3% from Friday’s peak, suggesting that the market's reaction to the US inflation news was overly emotional.

According to Reuters:
→ Fed Chair Jerome Powell indicated a readiness to keep rates steady until clearer economic signals suggest a need for cuts.
→ Traders have reduced the likelihood of a Fed rate cut at the September meeting.

Meanwhile, the Reserve Bank of New Zealand does not plan to cut rates at all in 2024. According to Trading Economics, any rate cuts are unlikely before mid-2025.

Thus, the policies of the two central banks are balanced, and the current drop from nearly a 5-month high may be a return to a more balanced valuation after an emotional surge into overbought territory.

The RSI indicator supports this view.

European Stock Indices Decline Amid Political Uncertainty
96JZdkO.png


Today, the Eurostoxx 50 index (Europe 50 on FXOpen) has dropped below the early May minimum, reflecting escalating market concerns over the upcoming French elections, as reported by Reuters. Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire's acknowledgment that the current political crisis could evolve into a financial crisis has amplified fears, extending the political risk until June.

How long might this decline persist?

Fundamentally, statements from authorities could calm the markets.

Nikkei Index Falls Below 38,000 Points This Month for First Time
aZqnDcn.png


According to today's Nikkei 225 (Japan 225 on FXOpen) chart, the index quote dropped below 38,000 points at Monday's low, followed by a recovery (shown by an arrow).

One of the drivers of the decline was the automotive sector, whose shares led during the downturn. In particular, according to Reuters, Toyota Motors' shares fell by more than 2% as the company faces difficulties due to a certification scandal. Japanese national broadcaster NHK reported that Toyota will extend the production halt for some models until the end of July.

The fact that the Nikkei 225 (Japan 225 on FXOpen) price is recovering after dropping below the 38,000 mark suggests a false bearish breakout below this psychological level.

8Y1JL6k.png


On June 5th in the article "Is ADBE Stock Undervalued?", we highlighted several bullish signs, suggesting that the report published on June 13th could be a driver for a resumption of the uptrend.

Adobe's report released on June 13th proved to be strong:
→ Earnings per share: Actual = $4.48, Forecast = $4.39;
→ Revenue: Actual = $5.309 billion, Forecast = $5.291 billion. A 10% increase compared to the same quarter last year.

Furthermore, the company stated that:
→ AI is more of an advantage than a hindrance to business development;
→ “We’re seeing early success monetizing new AI technologies across our Digital Media and Digital Experience businesses,” said Shantanu Narayen, Adobe's CEO.

Nasdaq 100 Index Reaches 20,000 Points for the First Time
w6BgZue.png


On 30 May, we noted some uncertainty in the price behaviour of the Nasdaq 100 (US Tech 100 mini on FXOpen) near the resistance level of 18,840, as shown by arrow #1.

Following this, the price declined and tested the former resistance at 18,250 (indicated by arrow #2) – the long lower shadow on the candle indicated aggressive demand (more details in the article on the Hammer pattern).

This test gave the bulls confidence to break through the 18,840 resistance.

In June, the price continued to rally within the ascending channel (shown in green), which is part of a larger ascending channel (shown in blue), driven by:
→ prospects for AI implementation;
→ prospects of Fed rate cuts.

Yesterday, the Nasdaq 100 (US Tech 100 mini on FXOpen) rose by approximately 1.2%, reaching the psychological level of 20,000 points. This record was supported by influential analysts raising their forecasts for US stock markets. For example:
→ Goldman Sachs raised the year-end 2024 target for the S&P 500 (US SPX 500 mini on FXOpen) from 5200 to 5600;
→ Evercore ISI increased its forecast for the same index from 4750 to 6000.

Market sentiment was also buoyed by the anticipation of several comments from FOMC members scheduled for this week. These might confirm the Fed's intention to cut rates as early as September this year.

European Currencies Adjust to Support Levels: Is Growth Possible?
kaROlq3.png


A week rich in macroeconomic data contributed to the decline of the euro, yen, and pound. Notably, the following events were significant:

  • Inflation falling for the second consecutive month (0.2% against the expected 0.3%);
  • The publication of the updated forecast from the Federal Reserve (one reduction in the federal funds rate by 0.25%, presumably in September).

Nonetheless, despite the hawkish stance of the Federal Reserve and the steady slowdown in inflation, European currencies managed to stay above key levels relative to the dollar, even laying the groundwork for forming reversal patterns.

TSLA Shares Revive After Shareholder Meeting
k12v7tr.png


Last week, Tesla held a shareholder meeting where the main events included:
→ Shareholders approving Elon Musk’s $56 billion compensation package in TSLA stock options;
→ Relocating the company’s legal headquarters to Texas;
→ Elon Musk’s statements on robotics, asserting that Optimus robots could make Tesla a $25 trillion company.

Approving the massive compensation eliminated the risk of Musk leaving the company (which would likely have caused a sharp drop in TSLA stock price). The billionaire thanked shareholders and today, 18 June, posted on X (Twitter) announcing that he is working on a new master plan for Tesla’s development, likely focusing on the prospects of Optimus robots.

Additionally, news emerged about the launch of Tesla Model 3 sales at a new price in China. This spurred activity in the TSLA stock market.
