Wall Street closed higher before the release of the U.S. Consumer Price Index (CPI) scheduled for Wednesday at 15:30 (GMT+3).

Bank of Japan (BoJ) Governor Ueda’s hawkish statements over the weekend have contributed to the strength of the Japanese Yen during the Asian morning session. Ueda mentioned that the Japanese Central Bank may have enough data by the end of the year to assess whether wage growth and inflation in Japan are rising sustainably. At the same time, the US dollar has shown remarkable strength, recording an 8-week winning streak, a move not witnessed since 2005. This strength is attributed to resilient US economic data, which has heightened expectations of further interest rate hikes from the Federal Reserve. However, this strong dollar has pressured gold prices and the equity market. Meanwhile, oil prices have remained steady, hovering near the $87 mark amid concerns over dwindling oil supplies.

The US Dollar took a step back in anticipation of pivotal US inflation data, prompting a wave of portfolio adjustments by investors seeking refuge from potential market turbulence. Despite widespread expectations that the US central bank will hold off on interest rate hikes this month, policymakers remain cautious about declaring victory over inflation. With monetary decisions closely tied to data, prudent investors are urged to maintain vigilance, continuously monitoring forthcoming US economic indicators to assess the trajectory of the US Dollar.

The dollar index is trading lower while currently testing the support level. MACD has illustrated increasing bearish momentum, while RSI is at 45, suggesting the index might extend its losses after breakout since the RSI stays below the midline. 

Resistance level: 105.25, 106.25

Support level: 104.25, 103.05

xau/usd gold price chart 12 september 2023


The gold market continues to consolidate within a defined range, restrained by the absence of significant market drivers. Investor focus sharpens this week on key economic data releases. Wednesday’s eagerly anticipated consumer price data and Thursday’s revelations regarding producer prices and retail sales figures will serve as critical barometers, poised to exert significant influence on the several major asset classes.

Gold prices are trading lower following the prior retracement from the resistance level. MACD has illustrated diminishing bullish momentum, while RSI is at 46, suggesting the commodity might extend its losses since the RSI stays below the midline. 

Resistance level: 1930.00, 1950.00

Support level: 1910.00, 1885.00

EUR/USD price chart 12 september 2023


The euro has been gradually rising while the dollar is in a holding pattern, with investors awaiting the release of the crucial U.S. Consumer Price Index (CPI) scheduled for Wednesday. A strong CPI reading could prompt a more aggressive response from the Federal Reserve, potentially leading to a stronger dollar. Conversely, the European Central Bank (ECB) is expected to announce its interest rate decision on Thursday, and the market consensus is that the ECB will maintain its current interest rate level due to lacklustre economic growth in the eurozone.

EUR/USD has shown signs of a trend reversal after it consolidated at the strong support level of 1.0700 level. The RSI has gained above the 50 level while the MACD is breaking above the zero line, suggesting a bullish momentum is forming. 

Resistance level: 1.0970, 1.1235

Support level: 1.0690, 1.0540

AUD/USD price chart 12 september 2023


The Australian dollar managed to rebound from its lowest level since last November, which was partly due to the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) pausing its rate hike program due to the country’s lacklustre economic performance. However, the Aussie dollar received a boost from optimistic economic data out of China that was released yesterday. This data, particularly the China New Loans figures, showed a significant improvement, signalling a potential revival in China’s struggling economy. This positive news encouraged investors, and the Australian dollar traded higher as a result.

The Aussie dollar broke above its price consolidation range signalling a trend reversal for the pair. The RSI has been gaining while the MACD has broken above the zero line suggesting the bullish momentum is growing. 

Resistance level: 0.6500, 0.6610

Support level: 0.6370, 0.6200

USD/JPY price chart 12 september 2023


The Japanese Yen experienced a dramatic surge as Bank of Japan (BoJ) Governor Kazuo Ueda raised expectations that the BoJ might consider departing from its negative interest rates policy, provided it can attain its inflation target. The Japanese Yen’s trajectory is expected to be marked by heightened volatility, as market participants closely monitor any potential intervention by Japan to bolster the yen, especially after it weakened beyond the 145-per-dollar threshold last month.

USD/JPY is trading lower while currently testing the support level. However, MACD has illustrated diminishing bearish momentum, while RSI is at 46, suggesting the pair might experience technical correction since the RSI rebounded sharply from oversold territory. 

Resistance level: 147.75, 149.30

Support level: 146.25, 144.70

Nasdaq , H4

US equity markets posted gains driven by optimism that the Federal Reserve will maintain its current interest rates during its upcoming meeting this month. This sentiment arises from the perception that the Fed is nearing the conclusion of its rate hike trajectory. Concurrently, US Treasury yields dipped, reflecting market sentiment that the Fed may conclude its monetary tightening cycle. Nevertheless, market volatilities persist in anticipation of critical US inflation data.

Nasdaq is trading higher while currently near the resistance level. MACD has illustrated diminishing bearish momentum, while RSI is at 59, suggesting the index might extend its gains toward resistance level since the RSI stays above the midline. 

Resistance level: 15780.00, 16585.00

Support level: 14610.00, 13660.00

crude oil price chart 12 september 2023


Oil prices retraced slightly from their 10-month highs following an impressive rally, prompted by Saudi Arabia and Russia’s decision to extend voluntary supply cuts until year-end. The International Energy Agency and the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries are poised to release their monthly reports this week. Investors are closely monitoring these reports for insights into expected demand growth, particularly considering recent data suggesting a cooling trend in the vital Chinese economy.

Oil prices are trading higher while currently testing the resistance level. MACD has illustrated diminishing bearish momentum. RSI is at 57, suggesting the commodity might extend its gains after breakout since the RSI stays above the midline. 

Resistance level: 87.70, 92.30

Support level: 84.45, 81.25
