    Japanese Bond Yields Rise to an 11-Year High Pressuring the BOJ!

    * Japan’s 2-Year Bond Yield rises to its highest level in more than 10 years. On Tuesday, Japan’s inflation rate declined from 2.3% to 2.0% which was slightly higher than expectations.
    * Japan’s bond yields rise as investors continue to speculate that Japan will move away from their ultra-expansionary monetary policy.
    * Investors consider whether higher bond yields will support the Yen in the month of March and if the NIKKEI225 will retrace back to the previous low.
    * The US Dollar Index declines for a second consecutive day. Dollar traders will focus on today’s US Durable Goods release as well as the Consumer Confidence Index.

    USDJPY – The Yen Increases in Value Against All Currencies!

    The US Dollar against the Japanese Yen has been one of the only currency pairs where the Dollar has been able to gain over the past week. Whereas the Dollar in general has been struggling against most major currencies. However, this morning the Yen has risen 0.28%. This is because Japanese Bond Yields have risen, and inflation reads slightly higher than previous expectations.

    Over the past week, the major resistance level which can be seen has been at 150.280, which is close to the current price. If the price breaks below this level, sell signals will continue to emerge. If the price continues to decline and form a bearish breakout, the price will also trade below the 75-bar EMA and the 50.00 level on the RSI. This would further indicate a downward price movement in the short to medium term. On 30-Minute timeframe the exchange rate has formed a bearish crossover on the Stochastic Oscillator as well as the Moving Averages. Simultaneously, the oscillator is not yet indicating an oversold price. So why is the USDJPY declining?

    Investors should take into consideration that the Dollar has been depreciating for over a week even though the USDJPY has risen. Therefore, investors are considering whether the exchange rate is overbought in the short term. The US Dollar Index also trades 0.14% lower this morning and the Yen is trading higher against all currencies. One of the reasons for the Yen increasing in value is the slightly higher inflation data.

    Analysts advise the inflation rate in Japan is not high enough to support the Bank of Japan changing their policy. However, the fact the rate has not fallen as sharply as analysts previously thought supports the Yen. If the inflation rate remains stable above 2.00%, the regulator may consider switching to a more traditional monetary policy, in the second or third quarter of 2024. Also supporting the Japanese Yen are Japanese Bond Yields which are increasing to their highest level in over 11 years. The 2-Year Bond Yield has risen to 0.172% from 0.00% earlier this morning.

    JPN225 – Will Higher Yields Halt the NIKKEI225’s Bullish Trend?

    The JPN225 has risen by almost 18% in 2024 so far and has been one of the best performing indices globally. The JPN225 has also outperformed US equities. However, investors are taking into consideration whether the JPN225 may retrace as the Yen gains. If investors use the Fibonacci levels to assist with what a retracement may look like, the indicators point to the assets declining to 37,863 as a minimum or to 35,010 as a maximum.

    Alternatively, investors can use price action which indicates any retracement will on average be an 8.00% decline. Now, the index is yet to obtain a strong sell signal from indicators, however, the price is forming lower lows and highs which is a negative. In addition to this, the price has also recently been overbought on the RSI and has formed divergence signals. Therefore, investors are taking into consideration a possible retracement as Japanese Bond Yields rise and the Bank of Japan considers higher interest rates.

    RBNZ Says No More Hikes, NZD Crashes More Than 1%!

    * The Reserve Bank of New Zealand takes a more dovish tone as the economy’s cracks start to show.
    * The New Zealand Dollar declines against all currencies. Against the Pound the NZD trades 0.83% lower and it has fallen more than 1.00% against the Dollar.
    * The US Dollar Index trades 0.20% higher as investors take a more cautious approach due to weaker economic data.
    * US Durable Goods Orders decline more than 6.00%, the largest contraction since May 2020.

    NZDUSD

    The New Zealand Dollar is witnessing the highest level of volatility during this morning’s Asian session. The lowest spreads and strongest price movement can be seen on the NZDUSD. The exchange rate is trading at its lowest price since February 16th after the NZD collapsed. Over the past 12 hours, the NZDUSD has fallen 1.11% primarily due to the dovish tone taken by the Reserve Bank of New Zealand and its Governor.

    If we look at the 10 most traded currencies worldwide, New Zealand is the country witnessing the highest inflation and the weakest economic growth. The dovish tone taken by the RBNZ comes as a relief for locals and can support the economy. However, for the currency this simply adds more pressure. Economic weakness can primarily be seen in the New Zealand employment sector which has seen the unemployment rate rise from 3.2% to 4.00%. In addition to this, the Gross Domestic Product Growth Rate currently stands at -0.6%.

    The RBNZ kept interest rates unchanged at 5.50%, but the main concern for investors were the comments made thereafter. The governor Mr Orr in his press conference said “there was very strong consensus that the official rate is sufficient”. As a result, the economy continues to remain unattractive due to weak data and potential for another hike is no longer possible. For this reason, demand has significantly fallen for the time being.

    The Dollar on the other hand is seeing demand slightly rise due to poor economic data on Monday. The weaker data triggered a lower risk appetite within the market which supported the Dollar. Investors are now concerned whether the US’s GDP figure will indeed read +3.3% as per expectations considering certain data came in relatively weak. The Durable Goods Order fell 6.1%, Core Durable Goods fell -0.3% and the CB Consumer Confidence fell instead of remaining unchanged at 114.8. Throughout the remaining sessions, the price will continue to be influenced by the comments from the RBNZ, but also will depend on the Prelim GDP reading for the US this afternoon.

    In terms of technical analysis, almost all indicators point towards a downward price movement which is understandable considering the bearish momentum. However, all timeframes below the 4-hour chart are currently reading oversold on the RSI. Investors should also take this into account.

    USA100

    The NASDAQ was the best performing index on Monday, but there continues to be a lack of bullish signals in the short term. The USA100’s price continues to remain above the 75-bar moving average and above the neutral level on most oscillators. However, the price is not maintaining bullish momentum and is failing to form higher highs. The price also continues to trade at the previous resistance level and many economists advise the price is trading at where traders believe is appropriate, hence the lack of a trend.

    When we monitor the top 20 most influential stocks, 11 of the 20 ended the day higher while 9 declined. This is also an indication of no major trend within the session. From these 20 stocks, Netflix saw the largest increase (+2.39%) and Adobe saw the largest decline (1.43%).

    So far, Bond Yields trade lower, which is known to support the stock market, however, the Dollar also trades higher which indicates lower investor sentiment. The next price driver for the USA100 will be the US GDP reading. Ideally investors will want to see strong growth but not strong enough to stop the Fed from cutting rates soon. Some economists are advising a GDP reading of 3.3% or slightly lower will be ideal for the stock market.

    The Japanese Yen Soars After The BOJ Indicate Interest Rate Hikes!

    * The Japanese Yen witnesses its strongest gains since December 2023. The USDJPY drops more than 0.70% within the first few hours of trading.
    * Japanese Yen is largely being driven by comments made by a key member of the Bank of Japan.
    * The Bank of Japan advise they are considering taking small steps away from negative interest rates.
    * US stocks decline away from the latest resistance level and trade 0.87% lower by end of day.

    USDJPY –Bank of Japan Considering Steps Towards Higher Interest Rates

    Many investors are looking to take advantage of the first clear indication that the Bank of Japan will look to take a more traditional stance on its policy. In other words, move away from negative interest rates. The Bank of Japan moved to negative interest rates in 2016 and since then the Yen has declined by 25% against the US Dollar and 40% against the Swiss Franc. The exchange rate is now trading at strong resistance levels from November 2023 and October 2022. However, the question now is if investors will continue investing in the Japanese Yen in the longer term?

    The Yen’s advantages are its safe haven status and ability to mitigate risk away from the Dollar. Investors also note its current price is at an extremely “cheap” level compared to other options. For this reason, economists are evaluating whether investors will look to buy the Yen for the long-term considering the Bank of Japan may soon exit negative rates.

    A key member of the Board of the Bank of Japan, Mr Takata, said to journalists, “It’s necessary to consider taking a nimble and flexible response, including on how to exit, or shift gear from the current extremely accommodative monetary policy”. Based on this, investors should not believe the BoJ will suddenly go on a hiking rampage or start hiking imminently. However, Mr Takata gave the first clear signal that the regulator will start hiking in 2024 to at least move away from negative rates.

    Due to this the Japanese Yen rises against all currencies this morning and Japan’s 2-Year Bond Yield again renews its highs. The 2-Year Bond Yield now trades at 0.185% which is its highest level since 2011. The higher bonds yields can also support the currency and global interest in Japan’s Financial Service Market.

    In addition to this, the Yen has also obtained further support from economic data this morning. Japan’s Retail Sales figure read 2.3%, higher than the 2.00% prediction. In addition to this, the Core CPI remained at 2.6%, again higher than expectations.

    In terms of the US Dollar, the currency came under strain during the US Trading Session but kept to its previous price range. The currency came under slight pressure due to the Gross Domestic Product underachieving. The GDP data read 3.2% versus the 3.3% expected, however, investors should note the growth rate remains competitive. Investors are now mainly focusing on the PCE Price Index, which is a favourite of the Federal Open Market Committee. If the Index reads higher than 0.4%, rate cuts will start to feel like a far distance away. As a result, the Dollar potentially can rise, and stocks could possibly decline in the short to medium term.

    USA100 – All Eyes On Today’s PCE Core Price Index

    The NASDAQ continues to struggle for a fourth day as investors remain unsure on the future path of interest rates. In addition to this, investors should also note the weakness may partially be related to the end of the earnings season and due to its current high price.

    The day’s price movement is likely to largely be dependent on today’s PCE Core Price Index. Analysts expect the index to read 0.4% which would be the highest since May 2023. If the index reads higher the USA100 can potentially experience significant pressure as interest rate cuts will seem a distant dream. However, if the data is lower, investors will be relieved and may re-enter at the current lower price.

    Technical indicators’ signals are currently at the “neutral” level but are close to signalling a sell if the price continues to decline below $17,810. Lastly, investors will also be monitoring the performance of individual stocks within the NASDAQ. Of the top 30 influential stocks, only 3 rose in value on Wednesday indicating a clear downward trend for the day.

    Always trade with strict risk management. Your capital is the single most important aspect of your trading business.

    Stocks Rise To A New All-Time High! ECB Considers An Earlier Pivot.

    * The US Core PCE Price index read 0.4% in line with analysts’ expectations. January’s Core PCE Price Index was the highest reading since May 2023.
    * The US Dollar Index ended the day higher but did come under pressure at times from the inflation reading.
    * The NASDAQ again renews its all-time highs after rising 0.95% on Thursday and a further 0.47% in Friday’s Asian Session.
    * German inflation declines to 2.6% in February putting more pressure on the European Central Bank to consider a “pivot”.

    EURUSD – The ECB Consider An Earlier Rate Cut!

    The EURUSD exchange rate declined by 0.28% by the end of the day, but more than 0.55% from high to low. The exchange rate came under pressure from German inflation declining from 2.9% to 2.5%, the lowest since 2021. In addition to this, the US Dollar rose in value after a short-lived decline. The Dollar continues to be supported by high inflation data.

    The Germany economy has been struggling from poor economic growth and political tensions. The German GDP has not recorded an increase in the past three quarters. Overall the Germany GDP Growth Rate has actually fallen by 0.6% over the past year. Due to poor economic data and inflation now being at an acceptable level, investors are contemplating whether the ECB will cut rates soon. France also made public their latest inflation reading which fell from 3.1% to 2.9%. The largest four EU economies are now all at an inflation rate below 3.00% and very close to their 2% target. Italy is currently below the 2% and is in desperate need of monetary expansion.

    Price growth in the Eurozone continues to slow down, which gives the ECB more reasons to consider cutting rates sooner rather than later. In this regard, it is worth noting the results of the latest survey of leading economists conducted by Reuters. According to the report, most economists believe that the regulator will reduce the deposits interest rate for the first time in June by 25.0 basis points, but some experts expect that the ECB will ease monetary policy in April.

    The US Dollar Index is trading higher, but its growth seems uncertain. Interest rate cuts are also likely for the Federal Reserve; however, higher inflation data has pushed back the potential date. According to most analysts, a pivot is not likely until the summer months, and it would continue to depend on upcoming inflation.

    US economic data has noticeably weakened, which will catch the Fed’s attention. The initial jobless claims for the week of February 23 rose from 1.86M to 1.905M compared to 1.874M expected. In addition, the dynamics of pending housing sales in January decreased by 4.9% after increasing by 5.7% earlier, falling short of forecasts of 1.0%. Though investors must note that if the employment sector remains strong, the pressure on the Federal Reserve will remain minimal.

    USA100 – Can The NASDAQ Maintain Momentum!

    The USA100 is now trading at its all-time highs after receiving a push from the Core PCE Price Index being unable to rise above expectations. However, technical analysts warn the asset can potentially retrace before continuing an upward trend.

    When measuring previous impulse waves and the size of swings before retracing, the asset is now at a level which may indicate a pullback. Investors also note that 34% of the NASDAQ’s individual stocks ended the day lower, which does show signs of some weakness in the market. Lastly, the 10-Year Bond Yields have risen by 0.020% and the US Dollar trades slightly higher. These two factors are also known to pressure the stock market.

    However, when monitoring momentum-based indicators, the USA100 is trading above trend-lines, regression channels and shows strong upward momentum. Therefore, traders will be monitoring how the asset may break out of previous significant price ranges.

    * Bonds & US Treasury yields are under pressure at the start of a busy week that includes the ECB decision, Fed Chair Powell’s congressional testimony and China’s National People’s Congress.
    * Fedspeak so far were supportive. There had been growing chatter in recent sessions that the strength in the economy could prevent the FOMC from trimming rates at all this year.
    * Swiss CPI fell to 1.2% y/y in February, which is further proof that the SNB has brought inflation under control.
    * Turkey’s annual CPI swung to a 15-month high, close to 70%.
    * OPEC+ output cuts to remain in place until the middle of the year.
    * Today: ECB Governing Council member Robert Holzmann & Fed’s Patrick Harker speeches.

    Market Trends:

    * European futures and Asian stocks higher, with key upcoming events such as Fed Chair Powell’s congressional testimony and China’s National People’s Congress adding to market anticipation.
    * The renewed strength in the tech sector resonated across Asia, with Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co., the world’s leading chipmaker, reaching its all-time high.
    * AI and Nvidia continued to underpin investor enthusiasm, boosting the NASDAQ by 1.14% to 16,275, finally besting the 16,057 historic peak from November 2021.
    * The S&P500 advanced 0.80% to 5137, also a new high, marking its 15th record of the year, and it has gained in 16 out of the last 18 sessions, the best showing since 1971.
    * Nikkei (JPN225) surpassed the 40,000 mark for the first time.

    Financial Markets Performance:

    * The USDIndex remains under pressure, falling to 103.67 but drifting within a tight range on pressure by lower Treasury yields, as traders waited for crucial economic data for fresh clues on the timing of Federal Reserve interest rate cuts.
    * BTCUSD surged, briefly surpassing the $64,000 threshold. Market participants are speculating that the cryptocurrency is poised to exceed its previous record high of nearly $69,000, achieved during the Covid-19 pandemic.
    * Gold remains in the green, edging up fractionally to $2084 per ounce.
    * USOil is below $80 per barrel after OPEC+ members confirmed that output cuts will be extended through to the middle of the year. The decision was widely expected, but still supported the recent uptrend in prices.

    Market Recap – Stocks in red, Crypto mania extends.

    Economic Indicators & Central Banks:

    * The markets have significantly pared back rate cut expectations and the front end underperformed in a bear flattener on the increased pessimism.
    * Japan: Core inflation picked up speed in February, surpassing the central bank’s 2% target, suggesting that conditions for ending negative interest rates are aligning.
    * Deflationary China set an ambitious growth target at 5%, 5.5% urban unemployment & 3% inflation: Premier Li also announced a budget deficit of 3% of GDP and $138.9bn in special government bonds. That added pressure on officials for more stimulus and policy support to fight the property crisis and deflation! At the same time Chinese PMI came in lower than forecasts.
    * Bloomberg forecast puts growth at 4.6% this year, which flags the challenges China officials are facing against the background of a struggling property market.

    Market Trends:

    * Wall Street finished with small losses, albeit after last Friday’s rally that saw all-time highs on the NASDAQ and S&P500, with weakness in energy, consumer and tech stocks offsetting strength in utilities and real estate.
    * The tech-heavy NASDAQ slipped -0.41%, while the Dow was off -0.25% and the S&P500 fell -0.12%.
    * Apple Inc down more than 2% on receiving a $2 billion antitrust fine in Europe.
    * Tesla’s stock declined by more than 7% as shipments from the electric-car manufacturer’s China facility reached a 14-month low in February, partly due to disruptions caused by the lunar new year festivities and intensified competition resulting from a price war.
    * US and European stock futures are in the red, after a largely weaker session across Asia.

    Financial Markets Performance:

    * The USDIndex was fractionally lower at 103.85 in spite of the eroding Fed outlook as gains in EUR and GBP outweighed the buck’s strength versus the other G10 peers.
    * Yen holds steady within its 3-week range, currently at 150.40.
    * BTCUSD holds largely in green, spiking to $68,800 highs. Its up around 57% this year, benefiting from flows into exchange-traded funds launched in the United States.
    * Gold surged to $2115 as markets look ahead to Fed Chair Powell’s congressional testimony.
    * USOil prices have corrected lower despite the confirmation that OPEC+ output cuts will remain in place through the first half of the year. International oil companies in Iraq’s semi-autonomous region of Kurdistan denied reports that there is a deal that would allow oil exports through the Iraqi-Turkey pipeline to continue. Markets are also keeping a close eye on talks about a possible ceasefire between Hamas and Israel. A Hamas delegation arrived in Cairo for the talks, but an Israeli official told CNN that Israel decided not to send a delegation to Egypt because Hamas had not responded to two Israeli demands.

    Market Recap – Gold & Bitcoin to New Record Highs.

    Economic Indicators & Central Banks:

    * Risk appetite boosts Bitcoin and Gold to new record highs – boosted by expectations for US rate cuts, geopolitical tensions & the risk of a pullback in equity markets.
    * The remarkable ascent of Bitcoin, which has already seen a 55% surge year-to-date, has been fueled by investors’ increased allocation of funds into US spot ETF products. Additionally, the prospect of global interest rate decreases has contributed to the rally.
    * On Tuesday, Treasury yields corrected lower, while the weaker ISM data encouraged profit taking, especially with stretched valuations and growing uncertainty over the FOMC’s stance ahead of Chair Powell’s Humphrey Hawkins testimony.
    * US equities futures and European contracts edged higher ahead of Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell’s testimony.
    * Attention turns now to labor market data on JOLTS and ADP today, Jobless claims Thursday, and NonFarm Payrolls Friday. It could be difficult to assess whether the boost is just a give-back or a real indicator of easing in tight labor market conditions.

    Market Trends:

    * The NASDAQ (US100) dropped -1.65% as the AI rally takes a breather. The S&P500 (US500) was down -1.02%. The Dow (US30) declined -1.04%. Weakness in the broad index was broadbased, though Target was a big winner after an earnings beat.
    * The Hang Seng rebounded thanks to gains in Chinese tech giant Alibaba Group Holding Ltd and Tencent Holdings Ltd, and the Hong Kong index is currently up 1.9%.
    * The Nikkei (JPN225) corrected slightly, however, and the CSI300 couldn’t sustain yesterday’s rally and is down -0.4%.
    * DAX (GER40) and US futures are in the red, as the focus turns to Fed Chair Powell’s congressional testimony.

    Financial Markets Performance:

    * The USDIndex retests 2-week support at 103.50.
    * The Yen strengthened against the US Dollar, while the GBP boosted higher ahead of Britain’s budget announcement. The EUR retests yesterday’s highs ahead of the European Central Bank’s policy decision, with investors keen on any indications of future rate adjustments amidst persistent inflationary pressures.
    * Bitcoin experienced a 5% jump, reaching an intraday peak of $66,540 amidst volatile market conditions, closely trailing Tuesday’s record peak of $69,202. The funds into US spot ETF crypto products and the possibility of a global decline in interest rates have added fuel to the rally.

    Market Recap – Yen & Gold on a Ride; ECB Today.



    Economic Indicators & Central Banks:

    * Stock markets corrected across Asia. US futures are down, and European markets are also trading cautiously in early trade ahead of ECB.
    * Ueda: Chance of reaching target getting higher little by little.
    * BOJ board member Junko Nakagawa: expressed confidence in Japan’s economy moving steadily towards achieving the central bank’s 2% inflation target sustainably.
    * Reports suggest a BOJ board member could propose removing negative interest rates at the upcoming policy meeting.
    * Yen is the biggest gainer so far, with Yen’s strength contrasting with its weakening trend over the past two years due to diverging interest rate policies.
    * Overnight: Wall Street rebounded and Treasuries extended gains after some weaker employment data (ADP and JOLTS).
    * Chair Powell in his Humphrey-Hawkins testimony repeated the FOMC anticipates cutting rates later this year. There was some angst he might tilt to a more hawkish stance. Powell emphasized the need for more data to ensure sustained progress toward the 2% inflation target.
    * A significant haven bid came from renewed concerns over NY Community Bancorp. Reports the bank is seeking a cash injection have boosted fears as this was the way Silicon Valley Bank imploded (March 10, 2023). NYCB shares plunged to the lows of the day at $2.47, where trading has been halted.
    * Today: The ECB is expected to stay firmly on hold, and even the doves seem to be resigned to wait until June for a cut. The stubbornly high services inflation and uncertainty about the current wage round means that rate cuts are not on the agenda yet.

    Market Trends:

    * Stocks recovered most of the selloff earlier in the week after all-time highs last week. The NASDAQ (US100) bounced 0.58%, back to 16,031, and the S&P500 (US500) rallied 0.5% to 5104.76, just shy of Friday’s historic peaks of 16,275 and 5137, respectively. The Dow (US30) advanced 0.2% to 38,661 but is off of the 39,135 top from February 23.
    * Target was a big winner after an earnings beat, while the S&P 500 rose, driven also by strong performances from Nvidia and Meta Platforms.
    * The Nikkei (JPN225) reached a record high briefly but closed down at 39,598.71.



    Financial Markets Performance:

    * The USDIndex is underwater at 103.12, still under the 104 level on expectations the FOMC will be cutting rates down the road.
    * EUR and GBP held near 1-month highs against the Dollar. AUD and NZD climbed to multi-week highs.
    * The Yen surged to a 1-month peak against the US Dollar fueled by speculation about the Bank of Japan ending negative interest rates soon. USDJPY is currently at 148.08, as Yen gained also against the EUR and GBP.
    * Gold was up for a 7th day, rising to a new closing high of $2146.48 per ounce. Oil was up 1.25% to $79.13 per barrel.
    * Bitcoin retreated slightly from a recent record high but maintained a significant year-to-date rally. Ether slipped after hitting a 2-year peak.

    Market Recap – NFP day post ECB & FOMC signalling possible June cuts!



    Economic Indicators & Central Banks:

    * Global stocks rallied on dovish signals from the ECB and FOMC, while focus turns to today’s NFP.
    * Lagarde signalled rates are likely to remain unchanged in April but that in the central scenario there will likely be sufficient evidence to make a decision in June. The ECB President stressed that wage growth remains key for the inflation outlook.
    * Germany: German producer price inflation lifted to -4.4% y/y from -5.1% y/y in the previous month. German industrial production rose 1.0% m/m in January. The weak trend mainly reflects the contraction at the end of last year, but while production stabilized in January, orders trends and indeed manufacturing surveys suggest ongoing weakness through the first quarter of the year. That leaves Germany at risk of a technical recession!
    * NFP Preview: The February nonfarm payroll report is likely to reflect gyrations and give-back from the outsized January figures. We expect a 160k rise in jobs, about half of the 353k jump in January and the 333k pop in December. The workweek should tick up to 34.2 from the prior 34.1, while average hourly earnings should edge up 0.2% following the prior 0.6% jump. The unemployment rate is expected unchanged at 3.7%.

    Market Trends:

    * Wall Street soared with the S&P500 (US500) jumping 1.03% to a fresh record high at 5157. The NASDAQ (US100) surged 1.51% to 16,273.38, fractionally shy of Friday’s all-time peak of 16,274.94. The Dow (US30) rose 0.34%. In Europe, all of the bourses ended in the green.
    * Asian shares mostly saw gains, following the trend set by US stocks, which reached record highs. The Nikkei(JPN225) increased by 0.2%, Sydney’s S&P/ASX 200 surged by 1.1%, South Korea’s Kospi jumped by 1.1%, Hong Kong’s Hang Seng rose by 1.3%, and the Shanghai Composite gained 0.5%.



    Financial Markets Performance:

    * The USDIndex extended its losses and dropped to 102.67, the first close under 103 since January 15 as Treasury yields eased in the bond market after a couple reports gave potential signals of lessened pressure on inflation.
    * The Yen extended advance as expectations grew for the BOJ to raise interest rates for the first time since 2007.
    * EUR and GBP broke 1-month highs and multi-month channels against the Dollar respectively. EURUSD breached 1.0950 and GBPUSD is above 1.28.
    * Gold held at 2160 territory, with COT reports indicating consolidation in the near future.
    * Bitcoin maintained above $67,400.

    BoJ To Hike After Economic Growth! The NASDAQ Takes a Nosedive!


    A Japanese flag flutters atop the Bank of Japan building in Tokyo, Japan, September 21, 2016. REUTERS/Toru Hanai/File Photo - RTX2UM36

    * The US added 275,000 jobs in February 2024 beating expectations by 80,000.
    * US Average Salary Growth slowed to the lowest growth since March 2022. The US Unemployment Rate rises back to 3.9% after 3 months of no movement.
    * Japanese economists advise the Bank of Japan may opt to hike in their meeting towards the end of the month.
    * US Stock Market unable to maintain bullish momentum and hold onto gains. Stocks traders watch this week’s CPI announcement with caution.

    USDJPY – No Recession For Japan, When Will the BoJ Hike?



    The new employment data for the US originally brought about a decline in the US Dollar, before correcting upwards. The first reaction to sell the Dollar was largely due to data indicating a rate cut by June. The salary growth fell to a level which the regulator is more comfortable with, and the unemployment rate rose to 3.9%. Previously economists were advising the Unemployment Rate will need to reach 4-4.5% to bring inflation down. According to the FedWatch Tool, 58% of traders believe the Fed will cut in June and 25% believe it could be in May.

    The Japanese Yen on the other hand is not seeing major volatility within this morning’s Asian session. The Yen is trading slightly higher than the day’s market price, but investors will monitor any change in momentum. Previously, the preliminary economic growth data indicated that the Japanese economy has slipped into a recession. However, the GDP rate read 0.1% which confirms “no recession”. Therefore, economists are continuing to predict the Bank of Japan will keep interest rate hikes as an option for the next two meetings.

    The market is implying a 53% chance the Bank of Japan will shift rates to zero at its meeting on March 19th. However, some analysts still believe it might be at April’s meeting. However, the currency is likely to grow for as long as the Japanese economy does not fall into a “technical recession” and other competitors continue with rate cuts.

    For this reason, investors are wondering why the USDJPY is not witnessing a large clear downward price movement? According to fundamental analysts, many investors are awaiting confirmation from the monthly inflation figures to determine when the Federal Reserve is likely to “pivot”. If the yearly inflation rate does not decline, the Fed may opt to push back rate hikes. In this case, the Dollar may remain stubborn. However, any fall in inflation can result in the Japanese Yen rising.

    USA100 – Analysts Expect Inflation to Remain At 3.1%! What Does This Mean For the NASDAQ?

    After rising to a new all time high, the NASDAQ took a nosedive falling 2.29%. From the top 10 most influential stocks, only Apple and Alphabet stocks managed to maintain their value. Broadcom (-6.99%), Costco (-7.64%) and NVIDIA (-5.99%) saw the largest decline. Even though the price was obtaining buy signals as the price was rising, there were also clear signs the price may collapse. For example, the price was “overbought” on many oscillators, and the RSI also formed a “divergence” signal.



    The price of the USA100 will now primarily be dependent on tomorrow’s inflation data. The employment data was ideal for the USA100 as it indicates a resilient employment sector but possibly less upward pressure on inflation. Analysts expect monthly inflation to read 0.4% which will keep the inflation rate unchanged at 3.1%. According to analysts, the Core Consumer Price Index will rise 0.3%.

    If inflation reads lower than expectations, even if slightly lower, the stock market could potentially rise, as interest rates become less attractive. However, if inflation rises, the stock market is likely to struggle as a “soft landing” becomes a lower possibility.
