Brent Crude Oil: oil rises again

Current trend

Brent crude oil prices are recovering after a significant drop in the middle of the week on the backdrop of negative news about the increase in stocks in storage.

Stock data from the American Petroleum Institute (API) and the Energy Information Agency of the US Department of Energy (EIA) were unexpected. According to API data, weekly oil reserves in storage were 1.749M barrels, which is significantly higher than the forecast of 0.300M barrels. According to the EIA, oil reserves held by US firms showed an increase of up to 1.442M barrels, with analysts projecting 0.219M barrels. Excessive oil reserves in Cushing’s storage also remained in the negative zone, showing –0.991M barrels after a decrease of –2.608M barrels last week.

Also, quotes could be affected by the EIA report, according to which US oil production grew by 0.5M barrels and reached 11.0M barrels per day.

Support and resistance

The price of the asset continues to form a global upward correction and this week it consolidated above the Fibonacci retracement level of 38.2%. Today, continued growth and new attempts to achieve higher levels are possible. Technical indicators continue to hold the global buy signal: the range of the Alligator indicator EMAs fluctuations is still expanding, and the histogram of the AO oscillator is held in the positive zone.

Resistance levels: 45.75, 51.80.
Support levels: 39.25, 31.66.

Morning Market Review

EUR/USD

EUR is showing moderate growth against USD during today's Asian session, correcting after the "bearish" close of trading last week. The emergence of downtrend in the instrument was facilitated by the growth of correctional sentiment, while fundamentally the situation on the market changes little. EUR is recovering against expectations of the growth of the European economy; however, the outbreaks of disease that are recorded in various countries of the world again suggest the second wave of the epidemic, which can significantly affect the recovery of the global economy. Today, European investors are focused on the publication of statistics on business sentiment in the eurozone in June. Traders also expect the release of data on consumer inflation in Germany in June. Consumer inflation in Germany is projected to rise by 0,3 MoM after falling 0.1% MoM last month.

GBP/USD

GBP shows a slight increase against USD during today's morning session, retreating from local lows since May 29, updated at the end of last trading week. Macroeconomic data from the USA published last Friday turned out to be contradictory; however, on the whole, they contributed to a moderate growth of USD. Personal Spending of US citizens in May increased by 8.2% MoM after a decrease of 12.6% MoM last month. Analysts had expected growth by 9% MoM. Personal Income, on the other hand, decreased by 4.2% MoM after rising by 10.8% MoM in April. Analysts had expected decline by 6% MoM. Michigan Consumer Sentiment Index fell from 78.9 to 78.1 points in June, which turned out to be worse than market expectations of 79 points. Today, investors are awaiting the publication of May statistics on consumer credit in the UK. In addition, a speech by the member of the Monetary Policy Committee of the Bank of England, Gertjan Vlieghe, is expected during the day.

NZD/USD

NZD shows ambiguous dynamics of trading against USD during today's Asian session, located near 0.6400. Investors hesitate to open new long positions on the instrument, responding to alarming statistics that indicate an increase in the incidence of coronavirus in the world. A number of US states suspend the program of gradual lifting of restrictions, which inevitably leads to a revision of previous forecasts regarding the restoration of the global economy. At the same time, consumer interest in NZD is supported by the publication of good macroeconomic statistics. Today, traders expect publication of information on the dynamics of the construction market in the US in May. Also the release of Dallas Fed Manufacturing Business Index in June is expected today. Closer to the end of the American trading session, a speech will be made by the FOMC member, John Williams.

USD/JPY

USD is showing flat trading against JPY during today's Asian session. The instrument unsuccessfully tries to consolidate above 107.00, receiving support from the growth in demand for safe assets. Monday's macroeconomic statistics from Japan turned out to be ambiguous. Retail sales in Japan increased by 2.1% MoM in May after falling by 9.9% MoM a month earlier. At the same time, the annual indicator decreased by 12.3% YoY after a decrease of 13.9% YoY in April. Analysts had expected decline by 11.6% YoY. Large Retailers' Sales fell by 16.7% MoM, slightly correcting from the April rate of decline at 22.1% MoM.

XAU/USD

Gold prices show ambiguous dynamics during today's Asian session, trading near record highs since October 2012. The surge in the incidence of coronavirus is providing significant support to the asset, as investors are again actively talking about the second wave of the epidemic and the return of previous restrictions. In particular, alarming statistics come from the United States, where some states were forced to suspend the phased quarantine cancellation program. Additional support for gold is also provided by the soft monetary policy of the world's leading financial regulators.

Morning Market Review

EUR/USD

EUR is trading in both directions against USD during today's Asian session, consolidating after a moderate increase the day before. Yesterday, the pair managed to demonstrate active growth, but could not consolidate at new highs. The reason for the increase in purchasing activity for the instrument was the publication of good macroeconomic statistics on consumer inflation from Germany. Consumer Price Index in June accelerated from the previous –0.1% MoM to 0.6% MoM, which turned out to be better than expectations. In annual terms, prices added 0.9% YoY with an expected increase of 0.6% YoY. Harmonized Consumer Price Index for the same period accelerated from 0.5% YoY to 0.8% YoY, which also turned out to be better than the forecast of 0.6% YoY. Today, investors expect the release of statistics on consumer inflation for June in the eurozone. Also, traders will be focused on the speech of the ECB Vice President Luis de Guindos.

GBP/USD

The British pound shows ambiguous trading during today's Asian session, trying to consolidate below 1.2300. Yesterday, GBP fell against USD again, updating local lows since May 28, while by the end of the trading session on Monday, the "bulls" managed to partially recoup. At the beginning of the week, GBP was under pressure from macroeconomic indicators released in the UK. Consumer Credit in May decreased by 4.597B pounds after a decrease of 7.425B pounds over the past period. Analysts had expected a decline of 2.5B. The number of Mortgage Approvals in May grew by only 9.273K, which turned out to be significantly worse than the forecasts of 25K. Finally, investors were worried by statements by British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who noted that he was ready for a dialogue with the EU on the Brexit issue, but was still considering an alternative scenario for the country to leave without an agreement at all.

AUD/USD

AUD strengthens slightly against USD during today's Asian session, continuing to develop a weak "bullish" momentum formed yesterday. Buying activity in AUD remains restrained, as investors assess the prospects of a new wave of the coronavirus epidemic amid an increase in the number of cases in several countries, in particular in the US. Data from China provide some support to the instrument this morning, while Australian Private Sector Lending showed negative results. The Chinese Non-Manufacturing PMI in June showed an increase from 53.6 to 54.4 points. NBS Manufacturing PMI for the same period strengthened from 50.6 to 50.9 points, which also turned out to be better than market expectations of 50.4 points. In the US today, several important statements by officials are expected at once, including a speech by US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and a speech by Fed Chairman Jerome Powell in the US Congress.

USD/JPY

USD is showing moderate growth against JPY during today's morning trading, located near local highs since June 9, updated the day before. Support for USD is provided by macroeconomic statistics from Japan published on Monday. Japan's Unemployment Rate in May rose from 2.6% to 2.9%, exceeding growth forecasts to 2.8%. Over the same period, Industrial Production fell by 8.4% MoM and 25.9% YoY, while analysts expected a decline of 5.6% MoM and 11.3% YoY. An additional impetus for USD growth was a slight improvement in the dynamics of the number of new cases of coronavirus in the United States over the weekend. The country is experiencing a repeated increase in the incidence of COVID-19, with the result that some states are forced to return some of the restrictive measures.

XAU/USD

Gold prices are consolidating near eight-year highs, supported by rising concerns about the second wave of the COVID-19 epidemic. The growth of cases is recorded in the USA, Brazil and India, which forces investors to reconsider their forecasts regarding the pace of global economic recovery. Only news about the appearance of medicine that can ease the course of the disease, as well as active work on the invention of the vaccine softens the situation. In addition, judging by reports from China, Beijing has managed to take a second outbreak of the disease under control and stop the further spread of the epidemic.

EUR/USD

EUR is showing a slight decrease against USD during today’s Asian session, consolidating after an active but multidirectional dynamics the day before. Yesterday, quite a lot of interesting macroeconomic statistics was released in Europe and the USA; however, it did not contribute to the formation of any intelligible vector of movement in the market. Coronavirus again became the main topic of discussion, which was once again emphasized during a joint speech by US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and the Fed Chair Jerome Powell. Powell tried to soften the overall negative picture, noting that the US economy was able to recover to current levels faster than the initial estimates, but further prospects so far are slim. Today, investors are focused on the June report on the labor market in Germany, as well as data on Non-Farm Payrolls in the US from ADP.

GBP/USD

GBP slightly declines against USD in morning trading today, retreating from local highs since June 26, updated the day before. The reason for the active growth of the instrument on Tuesday was the positive comments of Michel Barnier, EU chief negotiator on Brexit. Barnier emphasized that based on current agreements between the parties the potential conclusion of a trade deal is possible. Meanwhile, the growth of GBP was overshadowed by new alarming information about the increase in the number of patients with coronavirus in the UK. Earlier this week, the government announced the return of quarantine restrictions in Leicester, where a new outbreak was recorded.

AUD/USD

AUD is trading in both directions against USD during today’s Asian session, trying to consolidate below 0.6900. Some pressure on AUD is exerted by macroeconomic statistics from Australia. Building Permits issued in May fell sharply by 16.4% MoM after a decrease of 1.8% MoM in the previous month. Analysts had expected deterioration in the dynamics of the indicator, but expected a decrease of 10% MoM. In annual terms, the number of permits fell by 11.6% YoY after an increase of 5.7% YoY a month earlier. In turn, data from China support the buying activity in the instrument. Caixin Manufacturing PMI in June rose from 50.7 to 51.2 points against the forecast of a decrease to 50.5 points.

USD/JPY

USD is falling against JPY during today’s trading session, testing the level of 107.60 for a breakdown. The instrument managed to update local highs since June 9 at the opening of the session, but the uncertain market situation did not allow the “bulls” to consolidate at new levels. JPY is supported today by good macroeconomic indicators from Japan. Jibun Bank Manufacturing PMI rose from 37.8 to 40.1 points in June, although analysts did not expect changes in the indicator. Consumer Confidence Index for the same period rose from 24 to 28.4 points, which turned out to be better than market expectations for a decrease to 20.9 points.

XAU/USD

Gold prices are trading in both directions near their multi-year highs, which were once again updated the day before. Investors are once again resorting to safe assets amid alarming news of a new outbreak of coronavirus, which may erase previous estimates of the timing of global economic recovery. First of all, the growing incidence in the United States is alarming, as the US economy has just begun to recover from the first wave of quarantine restrictions. Rising geopolitical tensions between the US and China also contribute to lower demand for risk. Earlier, Beijing passed a controversial national security bill, which implies the strengthening of state control in Hong Kong. In response to this decision, the USA withdrew the special status of Hong Kong, which implied certain preferences in the field of trade.

EUR/USD

EUR shows moderate growth against USD during today's Asian session, continuing an uncertain "bullish" momentum formed yesterday. European investors reacted optimistically to German labor market statistics. In June, the number of unemployed in the country fell sharply from 238K to 69K, with a forecast of a decrease to only 120K. However, the Unemployment Rate rose from 6.3% to 6.4%, but turned out to be better than its forecasts of 6.6%. Germany also showed steady growth in retail sales. In May, sales grew by 13.9% MoM and 3.8% YoY, which is much better than average forecasts of +3.9% MoM and –3.5% YoY. In turn, investors are notably cautious amid continued growth in the incidence rate in the United States. California and Texas reported a record number of cases of coronavirus, which threatens the return of large-scale quarantine measures in the country. In addition, on July 4, the United States celebrates Independence Day, which could lead to another outbreak if the celebrations are not canceled.

GBP/USD

GBP is showing weak growth against USD during today's morning session, trying to consolidate above 1.2500. Yesterday, GBP managed to strengthen, continuing the uptrend of Tuesday, and almost completely ignored the weak statistics from the UK. According to the results of Q1 2020, UK GDP showed a decrease of 2.2% QoQ and 1.7% YoY, which turned out to be worse than market expectations of –2% QoQ and –1.6% YoY. Current Account in the UK for the same period showed a deficit of 21.1B pounds with a forecast of –15B pounds. Notable support for GBP is provided by quite tangible progress during negotiations between the UK and the EU. For the first time in a long period, a timid hope appeared that the parties would still come to a consensus and a trade deal would be concluded before the Brexit deadline at the end of the year.

NZD/USD

NZD continues moderate growth against USD, approaching another resistance near 0.6500. Support for the instrument is provided by not the strongest USD. Morbidity statistics worry investors, but they do not hurry into safe assets, believing that Europe, for example, has managed to cope with the coronavirus epidemic much better. China also creates a good background, where a new outbreak of disease was quickly taken under control. Macroeconomic statistics from the USA published on Wednesday turned out to be moderately positive. ADP Employment Change report indicated an increase by 2369K, which turned out to be worse than market expectations of 3000K. ISM Manufacturing PMI in June rose sharply from 43.1 to 52.6 points with the forecast of 49.5 points. Markit Manufacturing PMI grew from 49.6 to 49.8 points with a neutral forecast.

USD/JPY

USD shows flat dynamics against JPY during today's Asian session, developing correctional momentum formed when the instrument retreated from its local highs since June 9. Against the backdrop of alarming statistics about the increase in the number of new cases of coronavirus in the United States, investors prefer JPY to USD. In addition, it should be noted that there is still a demand for risk in the market now, partly due to good European statistics and hopes for a further recovery of the global economy. Today investors are focused on the publication of the June report on the US labor market. Traders are hoping for a noticeable improvement in key indicators, which will give an upward momentum to USD.

XAU/USD

Gold prices are consolidating this morning, having experienced a marked decline yesterday, when quotes retreated from their multi-year highs. The pressure on the instrument was provided by technical factors, as well as the redistribution of long positions in the market. Published on Wednesday, macroeconomic statistics on employment and business activity in the US manufacturing sector also contributed to the downtrend in gold, but the main indicators of the US economy will be released today.

EUR/USD

EUR shows a slight decline against USD during today's Asian session, developing flat trend in the short term. US macroeconomic statistics released yesterday allowed USD to recover in the afternoon and move away from local lows since June 24. Meanwhile, the released data cannot be called unambiguously positive. Nonfarm Payrolls in June grew by 4800K, significantly exceeding market expectations of 3000K. Unemployment Rate fell in June from 13.3% to 11.1%, which also turned out to be better than expectations of 12.3%. At the same time, the Average Hourly Earnings in June slowed down from +6.6% YoY to +5% YoY, while experts were counting on +5.3% YoY. Initial Jobless Claims for the week ending June 26 increased by 1.427M applications, which turned out to be worse than the forecasts of 1.355M.

GBP/USD

GBP is consolidating against USD at the end of the week, trading near 1.2450. The upward potential of the instrument turned out to be almost completely exhausted by the end of the week amid the publication of a large amount of interesting macroeconomic statistics from the USA. In addition, GBP is still under pressure from uncertain prospects regarding trade negotiations between the UK and the EU, despite a series of optimistic statements on both sides of the process. In turn, a more confident growth of USD is restrained against the background of alarming information about the dynamics of the incidence of coronavirus in the United States. The country again shows a record growth rate of new cases, which may lead to returning to strict quarantine restrictions.

AUD/USD

AUD shows flat dynamics against USD during today's Asian session, trading near the previous local highs since June 24, updated the day before. The growth of the instrument slowed down somewhat yesterday against the background of the publication of moderately optimistic macroeconomic statistics from the USA. Today, the instrument is supported by data from Australia and China. Retail Sales in Australia increased by 16.9% MoM in May after growth by 16.3% MoM a month earlier. Analysts had expected it to maintain the same growth rate. The Chinese Caixin Services PMI grew from 55 to 58.4 points in June, while forecasts predicted its decline to 49.9 points.

USD/JPY

USD is trading ambiguously against JPY during today's morning session, consolidating near 107.50. Traders continue to analyze the June statistics on the US labor market, released the day before. The steady increase in Nonfarm Payrolls and lower unemployment at the end of June were overshadowed by a further decrease in the dynamics of earnings growth and a high rate of Initial Jobless Claims. Support for JPY at the end of the week is provided by data on the Japanese Services PMI from Jibun Bank. In June, the index rose from 26.5 to 45 points, which turned out to be better than average market forecasts.

XAU/USD

Gold prices are once again consolidating in the market during today's Asian session. The day before, instrument showed moderate growth, despite the publication of a large number of positive macroeconomic statistics from the United States. In particular, investors were optimistic about the high rate of Nonfarm Payrolls in June. At the same time, the first attempts of the US economy to begin recovering are overshadowed by alarming information about the record increase in new patients with coronavirus in the country. It is quite likely that the US authorities will have to return part of the quarantine restrictions in order to reduce the intensity of the second wave of incidence, which will be extremely painful for the country's weakened economy.

EUR/USD

EUR shows strong growth against USD during today's Asian session, approaching the local highs of last Thursday. Moderate support for the instrument is provided by good macroeconomic statistics from Europe, published last Friday. Markit Services PMI in Germany rose in June from 45.8 to 47.3 points with a neutral forecast. Markit PMI Composite for the same period rose from 45.8 to 47 points, which also turned out to be better than the forecasts. Markit Services PMI in the eurozone grew from 47.3 to 48.3 points, while Markit PMI Composite rose from 47.5 to 48.5 points. In turn, pressure on USD is caused by disturbing news regarding the dynamics of the incidence of coronavirus in the United States. Despite the record growth rate of new cases, the authorities are hesitant to return harsh quarantine measures, limiting themselves only to a number of local restrictions. In particular, President Donald Trump has not canceled a trip around the country, dedicated to the celebration of Independence Day.

GBP/USD

GBP is trading with an uptrend against USD this morning, developing a "bullish" signal formed last week. Investors began to buy GBP actively against the background of optimistic comments from officials who positively assessed the prospects of concluding a trade deal between the UK and the EU before the Brexit deadline at the end of the year. However, further growth of the instrument is hindered by the uncertainty that is inherent in many markets today. Today, investors are focused on business activity statistics from ISM in the USA. In the UK, Markit Construction PMI data for June will be published.

NZD/USD

NZD continues moderate growth against USD during today's Asian session. The instrument is testing the level of 0.6550, which is the highest since June 10. Demand for NZD remains quite high, given the overall recovery of the global economy. First of all, investors are optimistic about signals from China, while news from the USA, for example, remains alarming due to a sharp increase in the incidence of coronavirus. Some pressure on NZD at the beginning of the week was exerted by statistics from New Zealand. In June, ANZ Commodity Price Index decreased by 0.7% MoM after rising 1.1% MoM a month earlier. Analysts had expected zero dynamics.

USD/JPY

USD shows moderate growth against JPY during today's Asian session. The instrument adds about 0.20% and is testing the level of 107.70 for a breakout. Moderate support for USD is still provided by data on the US labor market published last Thursday. Despite the fact that not all investors' expectations were met, the US economy is showing a fairly rapid recovery. In turn, traders are concerned about the rapid increase in new cases of coronavirus incidence in the United States. It is possible that in the near future, President Donald Trump will have to return part of the quarantine restrictions, which will negatively affect the pace of recovery in the US economy.

XAU/USD

Gold prices show ambiguous dynamics of trading, located near the level of 1770.00. The instrument is supported by concerns about a new wave of coronavirus incidence in the world. First of all, investors are worried about the record dynamics in the USA. At the same time, a fairly large amount of positive macroeconomic statistics, including from the USA and China, enter the market, which increases the demand for risky assets and leads to a decrease in gold quotes. The instrument receives additional support from escalated geopolitical risks. In particular, the confrontation between the USA and China intensified again after Beijing passed the controversial bill on national security and began its implementation in Hong Kong.

WTI Crude Oil: oil prices consolidate

Current trend

Today, during the Asian session, the price of oil shows ambiguous dynamics, trying to consolidate above the level of $40 per barrel. Quotes are supported by optimistic macroeconomic statistics, which indicate a gradual recovery of the global economy. In turn, alarming data on the surge in the incidence of coronavirus in the United States and several other countries are holding back the further growth of the instrument. Investors fear that a new wave of the COVID-19 epidemic may lead to a decrease in demand for oil products, especially if states are forced to return part of the quarantine restrictions.

On Tuesday, the market is focused on the publication of data from the American Petroleum Institute on oil reserves for the week of July 3. The previous report reflected a sharp decrease by 8.156 million barrels, which significantly supported the instrument.

Support and resistance

On the daily chart, Bollinger bands are growing slightly. The price range changes slightly, reflecting the flat nature of trading in the short term. The MACD indicator falls, maintaining a poor sell signal (the histogram is below the signal line). Stochastic has reversed near the level of 80 and is reflecting the development of a correctional decline in the ultra-short term.

To open new trading positions, it is better to wait for the signals from technical indicators to be clarified.

Resistance levels: 40.97, 42.00, 43.00.
Support levels: 40.00, 38.91, 37.36, 35.70.

EUR/USD

EUR shows flat dynamics of trading against USD during today's Asian session, consolidating after the decline the day before, which did not allow the instrument to consolidate at local highs since June 23. On Tuesday, EUR almost completely ignored quite uncertain macroeconomic statistics from Germany. Industrial Production in May increased by 7.8% MoM after a decrease of 17.5% MoM a month earlier. Analysts had expected growth by 10% MoM. In annual terms, Industrial Production rate decreased by 19.3% YoY against the forecast of a decrease of 11.1% YoY. Today, European investors are focused on the speech of the ECB Vice President Luis de Guindos, while in general no interesting publications are expected.

GBP/USD

GBP shows a slight increase against USD during today's morning session, trading near the local highs of June 16, which the instrument managed to update the day before. GBP is supported by rumors of notable progress on the Brexit issue, but there is no official information yet. UK macroeconomic statistics published yesterday did not have a significant impact on the dynamics of the instrument. Halifax House Price Index in June showed an increase of 2.5% YoY/3M, slightly slowing down from the previous value of 2.6% YoY/3M. On a monthly basis, the index fell by 0.1% MoM after a decrease of 0.2% MoM in May. The indicator also was much better than its projected decrease of 0.9% MoM.

AUD/USD

AUD shows ambiguous dynamics of trading against USD during today's Asian session. The pair retreated from local highs under the influence of technical factors, as well as after some improvement in the statistics on incidence in the United States, which increased the attractiveness of USD. The minutes of the RBA meeting published yesterday were neutral. The regulator kept the key interest rate at the previous level of 0.25% as expected, while not reporting anything new in the follow-up statement. Macroeconomic statistics also turned out to be neutral. AiG Performance of Services Index went down from 31.6 to 31.5 points in June. No interesting publications are expected in Australia and the USA today.

USD/JPY

USD shows ambiguous dynamics of trading against JPY during today's Asian session, continuing the development of a flat trend in the short term. JPY is moderately supported by Japanese statistics today. Eco Watchers Survey Outlook in June showed an increase from 36.5 to 44 points with a forecast of a decrease to 24.1 points. Eco Watchers Survey Current for the same period strengthened from 15.5 to 38.8 points, which also turned out to be noticeably better than market expectations of 21.1 points. Bank Lending in June grew by 6.2% YoY after an increase of 4.8% YoY in the previous month. Analysts had expected growth by 7.2% YoY.

XAU/USD

Gold prices are consolidating after the next update of multi-year highs at yesterday's trading. The asset has risen in price in response to investor concern over the growing number of new cases of coronavirus incidence. Among other things, India, which is one of the largest consumers of gold, attracted attention. The situation in the United States is also worrying, but recently there has been some stabilization of dynamics, which has provoked corrective growth of USD across almost the entire spectrum of the market.

EUR/USD

EUR has shown steady growth against USD during today's Asian session, updating local highs since June 11. The instrument adds about 0.34% and is testing the level of 1.1370 for a breakout. EUR is supported by the positive sentiment of investors, who positively assess the growth rate of the eurozone economy and expect new fiscal measures from the Fed in response to the rapid growth of new cases of coronavirus incidence in the United States. In the medium to long term, traders expect testing of 1.1500 if the situation does not change significantly. Today, European investors are focused on the data from Germany on the dynamics of imports and exports in May, as well as information on the country's trade balance for the same period.

GBP/USD

GBP continues moderate growth against USD this morning, updating local highs since June 16. Despite the increase in demand for USD in response to the worsening situation with the incidence of coronavirus in the world, GBP remains positive, expecting significant progress on the Brexit issue and the conclusion of a trade agreement with the EU by the end of the year. Today, investors are expecting the publication of a block of macroeconomic statistics on the dynamics of the US labor market. It is expected that the number of initial jobless claims for the week ending July 3 will fall below 1.400M, which, however, can hardly be considered a truly optimistic result.

NZD/USD

NZD shows an uptrend against USD during today's Asian session, updating record highs since the end of January and again preparing to test the level of 0.6600 for a breakout. Statistics from New Zealand and China provide moderate support for the instrument today. ANZ Business Confidence in June rose from –34.4 to –29.8 points, which turned out to be quite close to the forecast of most analysts. The Chinese Consumer Price Index showed a decline of 0.1% MoM in June after falling 0.8% MoM in May. Experts expected to see zero dynamics of the indicator. In annual terms, inflation in June accelerated from +2.4% YoY to +2.5% YoY.

USD/JPY

USD shows flat dynamics of trading against JPY during today's Asian session, consolidating after a moderate decline the day before, provoked by the publication of good macroeconomic statistics from Japan. Japanese data released today also provided moderate support for the yen. Machinery Orders in May grew by 1.7% MoM after a decrease of 12% MoM a month earlier. Experts expected the negative dynamics to remain at the level of –5.4% MoM. In annual terms, the dynamics of orders improved from –17.7% YoY to –16.3% YoY with a forecast of –17.1% YoY.

XAU/USD

Gold is trading in the green zone during today's Asian session, remaining in the area of record highs, updated the day before.
