AUD/USD Intra-Day Fundamentals: Australia Cash Rate and Reserve Bank of Australia Rate Statement

2019-05-07 04:30 GMT | [AUD - Cash Rate]

  • past data is 1.50%
  • forecast data is 1.25%
  • actual data is 1.50% according to the latest press release

if actual > forecast (or previous value) = good for currency (for AUD in our case)

[AUD - Cash Rate] = Interest rate charged on overnight loans between financial intermediaries.

==========

From official report :

  • "At its meeting today, the Board decided to leave the cash rate unchanged at 1.50 per cent. The outlook for the global economy remains reasonable, although the risks are tilted to the downside. Growth in international trade has declined and investment intentions have softened in a number of countries. In China, the authorities have taken steps to support the economy, while addressing risks in the financial system. In most advanced economies, inflation remains subdued, unemployment rates are low and wages growth has picked up."
  • "The inflation data for the March quarter were noticeably lower than expected and suggest subdued inflationary pressures across much of the economy. Over the year, inflation was 1.3 per cent and, in underlying terms, was 1.6 per cent. Lower housing-related costs and a range of policy decisions affecting administered prices both contributed to this outcome. Looking forward, inflation is expected to pick up, but to do so only gradually. The central scenario is for underlying inflation to be 1¾ per cent this year, 2 per cent in 2020 and a little higher after that. In headline terms, inflation is expected to be around 2 per cent this year, boosted by the recent increase in petrol prices."

Crypto News - Bitcoin: weekly breakout; 6,000 is the key (based on the article)

Bitcoin/USD Brainwashing trading system chart by Metatrader 5

  • "Breakout was about to take place and a run to $6000 should take place. After that upside breakout move on April 8th, we posted this video further confirming $5800-$6000 was still the target. Today/May Bitcoin appears to be setting up a broader top formation that suggests another move lower is about to unfold. The chart highlights both support and resistance in Bitcoin. The Resistance goes all the way back to July 2018 where a Three River Morning Star pattern set up a gap with a Doji Star formation. This created the support level that was ultimately broken in November 2018. Support formed near $4000 in early 2019 with similar types of gap formations. This support level was ultimately broken in April 2019 with a move back up to resistance near $6000.” 
  • "We believe the setup of the most recent price activity is setting up a classic three mountains top formation. A weak price rotation prompting a downside price move right now could be a short term ultimately top with next support near $5000. We believe a fairly quick downside price move toward the $4400 level (or lower) – near support. Once price move to near the $4400 price level, or lower, if the support level is broken, we could see the price of Bitcoin fall all the way towards the $3500 level or lower. Fibonacci price theory suggests the failed high price move, near $7500, would represent a major failed high. This failure suggests a move lower attempting to establish a new price low. For this to happen, the price of Bitcoin would have to fall below $3000 which may sound crazy, but so was $20,000 bitcoin!"
  • "Watch for a reversal to unfold in the coming days, could be another opportunity to profit from another cryptocurrency collapse. Any failure of this breakdown/reversal move would suggest Bitcoin is setting up a new Pennant/Flag formation where the price will trade sideways before prompting a bigger breakout move. We believe a price breakdown is about to unfold and we expect prices to fall below $4400 within 14 to 28 days."

GBP/USD Intra-Day Fundamentals: U.K. Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and range price movement 

2019-05-10 08:30 GMT | [GBP - GDP]

if actual > forecast (or previous value) = good for currency (for GBP in our case)

[GBP - GDP] = Change in the price of goods and services purchased by consumers.

==========

From official report :

  • "Monthly GDP growth was negative 0.1% in March 2019, as the services and construction sectors contracted."
  • "The monthly growth rate for GDP is volatile and so it should be used with caution and alongside other measures, such as the three-month growth rate, when looking for an indicator of the longer-term trend of the economy. However, it is useful in highlighting one-off changes that can be masked by three-month growth rates."

Crude Oil - weekly ranging near long-term bullish reversal; 75.57 is the key (based on the article)

Crude Oil Ichimoku chart by Metatrader 5

  • "In a week that started off with a gap-down, Crude Oil prices have continued to grasp for support. Prices pushed-lower at the start of the week following a couple of tweets from President Trump on Sunday. This created a quick move of weakness in WTI that saw prices push down to 60.06 on Monday, with buyers showing up just ahead of a test of the psychological level at 60.00. This was the third zone of support identified in the technical forecast from a few weeks ago; and after this came into play, buyers showed up to support the bid."

The indicator’s long-term average is 22.1 points. Over the same period, the assessment of the economic situation in Germany has improved by 2.7 points, with the corresponding indicator climbing to a current reading of 8.2 points. The development of production and exports in Germany as well as Eurostat’s most recent flash estimate of GDP growth in the euro area in the first quarter of 2019 give rise to the hope that the German economy, too, has grown more strongly than expected in the first quarter."

Crude Oil - ranging near long-term bullish reversal; 75.57 is the key (based on the article)

Crude Oil Ichimoku chart by Metatrader 5

  • "Today’s gains have helped offset a string of losses as fears over increasing oil output coupled with diminishing hopes that a US China trade deal will be reached. But, crude oil prices still remain above technical support at the 50.0 percent retracement level around $60.00/bbl drawn from October’s 
    peak and December’s bottom last year. Positive sentiment from a technical perspective has waned, however, after bullish uptrend support from the latest 40-plus percent rally was broken earlier this month. Now, a short-term bearish downtrend has formed while a downward-sloping 34-day EMA both look to serve as headwinds to further upside in oil prices.” 
  • "Focusing in on a closer perspective, it appears that the 78.6 percent Fibonacci retracement level drawn from the high and low recorded on April 23 and May 6 respectively serves as a new area of confluence around the $61.50/bbl price. Oil bulls will likely watch this level closely to see if technical support continues to hold with the 61.8 percent and 50.0 percent Fibs encompassing the $62.50-63.20/bbl price level eyed as short-term upside targets. Although, if prices fail to hold footing above $60.00/bbl, crude could quickly accelerate to the downside."
