Gold Prices Falls Over 2%, U.S. Oil Settles Lower

1. Forex Market Insight    


EUR/USD fell to $1.0031, having touched $0.9952 earlier, the lowest since December 2002. 

The dollar is expected to continue to rise, helped by the fact that the Federal Reserve is expected to raise interest rates more than other major central banks, including the European Central Bank (ECB). 

Trading was choppy on Thursday, 14th July 2022, with the euro briefly hitting a 20-year low. 

This comes after a party in Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi’s ruling coalition failed to back a parliamentary confidence vote. 

The vote included measures to ease the cost-of-living crisis. Draghi later announced he would resign. 

Technical Analysis:

2. Precious Metals Market Insight   


Fundamental Analysis:   

Gold prices fell sharply by more than 2% on Thursday, 14th July 2022, touching their lowest in nearly a year, as the dollar extended its sharp rally while market expectations for a sharp Fed rate hike increased. 

The U.S. dollar touched a 20-year high, making it the safe-haven asset of choice amid increasing economic risks in the near term, while gold took a hit.

3. Commodities Market Insight   

WTI Crude Oil   

Fundamental Analysis:

Oil prices closed lower on Thursday, 14th July 2022, but recovered almost all of their losses after falling more than $4 earlier in the day. 

Investors are concerned about the prospect of a sharp U.S. interest rate hike later this month, which could curb inflation but also hit oil demand. 

Both U.S. oil and BOP touched lows on Thursday, 14th July 2022, below the closing price at 23rd Feb 2022.  

That is, the day before the conflict between Russia and Ukraine, Brent crude touched its lowest since 21st Feb 2022. 

Technical Analysis:
