1. Forex Market Insight  
  

EUR/USD  

EUR/USD fell below the psychological level of $1.05 as investors remained nervous about Russia cutting off gas supplies to parts of Europe for failing to meet Russian ruble settlement requirements.     

EUR/USD fell to $1.0497. Earlier, it fell to $1.0470, the lowest since January 2017.

The European Commission warned Russian gas buyers on Thursday, 28th April 2022, that a switch to ruble settlement could violate sanctions. 

Currently, there is confusion over member states’ responses to Moscow’s payment requests. Officials are seeking clarification from the EU on its position.   

Technical Analysis:

(EUR/USD 1-hour chart)  

We focus on the 1.0529-line today. If the euro runs steadily below the 1.0529-line, then pay attention to the support strength of the position of 1.0357. If the strength of the euro breaks above the 1.0529-line, then pay attention to the suppression strength of the two positions of 1.0662 and 1.0776.  

GBP Intraday Trend Analysis   

Fundamental Analysis:

The dark clouds of recession are starting to hang over many advanced countries right now, but it seems that the U.K. is at greater risk than most. 

Earlier, the International Monetary Fund warned that the UK’s inflation shock could be “the worst of both worlds” as it not only faces a tight labor market like the US, but also an energy crisis like Europe. 

A range of data, from the Purchasing Managers’ Index (PMI) to consumer confidence, suggests a faltering economic recovery. Brexit makes the UK particularly vulnerable to global inflationary shocks. Poor trade performance appears to have “greater persistence” in the UK, while falling labor supply from EU countries is exacerbating wage pressures. 

The British government may tighten fiscal policy too quickly, or repeat the mistakes made after the global financial crisis. The governor of the Bank of England has acknowledged that interest rate policymakers must walk a difficult path between tackling inflation and potentially triggering a recession.

2. Precious Metals Market Insight   

Gold   

Fundamental Analysis:   

Spot gold rebounded sharply from a 10-week low and rose to around $1,894 in late trading, weighed down by a strong dollar and expectations of a faster pace of U.S. interest rate hikes. It hit $1,871.99 earlier in the session, the lowest since 17th February 2017.   

Prices have fallen about 2.2% this month and are poised to post their biggest monthly decline since last September as the market expects the Federal Reserve to sharply tighten monetary policy and the dollar to strengthen. 

Technical Analysis:   

(Gold 1-hour chart)

3. Commodities Market Insight   

WTI Crude Oil   

Fundamental Analysis:

U.S. oil rose more than 3% in late trading to $105.20 per barrel, as the possibility of an EU ban on oil imports from Russia appears to be on the rise, supported by a tightening global diesel supply. 

Oil prices fluctuated earlier. Germany is preparing to stop buying Russian oil in stages, clearing the way for the EU to ban Russian oil imports. 

The latest report on Thursday, 29th April 2022, drove prices higher.
