    Default In the idle markets, XAU/USD remains protective at $1,800

    Daily Market News by Xtreamforex.com
    As global markets battle for clear directions to extend the previous optimism, gold (XAU/USD) prices drop from intraday highs, being range-bound near $1,813-18. During a sluggish Asian session on Wednesday, the precious metal maintained its previous day’s fall from the 200-DMA.

    The current Fed speak is more hawkish than previous ones, but reports about the EU’s oil ban on Russian imports, as well as China’s COVID restrictions, put optimists to the test. Despite this, traders remain optimistic due to stronger GDP data from Japan and the Euro zone, buoyant Retail Sales from the US, and the UK’s robust jobs report.

    “The Fed should boost rates to 2.25 percent -2.5 percent neutral ranges ‘expeditiously,'” Fed policymaker Evans seems to have weighed on the market’s mood by raising fears of a fast rate hike. Fed Chair Jerome Powell and normally hawkish St Louis Fed President James Bullard argued for a 50 basis point rate hike on Tuesday, putting pressure on the dollar.

    In terms of the report, initial Euro zone GDP for Q1 2022 increased past 5.0 percent YoY to 5.1 percent, as well as above 0.2 percent QoQ estimates to 0.3 percent. In April, however, US retail sales increased by 0.9 percent MoM, somewhat higher than the projected 0.7 percent but lower than the upwardly revised 1.4 percent gain (from 0.5 percent). Japan’s preliminary GDP figures for Q1 2022 climbed past -0.4 percent estimates to -0.2 percent QoQ, while Annualized GDP improved to -1.0 percent from -1.8 percent expected.

    The Financial Times (FT) reports that China is diverting anti-poverty funds to COVID testing as the crisis worsens, adding to the market’s concerns about the European Commission’s (EC) decision to move away from Russian energy imports. In this environment, US 10-year Treasury rates increased by 0.5 basis points (bps) to 2.988 percent, while S&P 500 Futures struggle to find a clear direction despite Wall Street’s strong advances.

    However, if the US Dollar Index, which is currently flat near 103.35, benefits from the latest cautious optimism, gold traders may see additional losses. The greenback gauge could be influenced by second-tier housing figures as well as qualitative factors such as corona virus and geopolitics.

    Despite maintaining inside a $5.00 trading range recently, gold prices have maintained the prior day’s retreat from the 200-DMA. XAU/USD may return an annual horizontal support range between $1,790-85, given the bearish MACD signals and the metal’s failure to cross the major moving average, which was around $1,838 by press time.

    Default Big tech and banks are driving Wall Street higher; the Dow is up 2%

    On Monday, US equities finished higher as bank gains and a resurgence in market-leading tech companies fueled a broad-based rally following Wall Street’s largest weekly fall since the dotcom bust more than two decades ago. All three major US market indexes rose between 1.6 and 2.0 percent, with resurgent megacap tech titans Apple Inc and Microsoft Corp providing the biggest boost.

    Interest rate-sensitive banks rose 5.1 percent after JPMorgan Chase & Co, the largest U.S. lender, boosted its current year interest income outlook. The stock of JPMorgan Chase increased by 6.2 percent. “It appears to be more of a relief rally than a fundamental shift in market attitude,” said Oliver Pursche, senior vice president at Wealthspire Advisors in New York. “Investors as a group believe another shoe is about to drop, and they are probably correct in the short run.” On Friday, the S&P 500 fell 18.7% from its record closing high set on Jan. 3. If the benchmark index closes 20% or more below that high, it will confirm that the market has been in a downtrend since then.

    Concerns over consistently rising inflation and strong moves by the Federal Reserve to contain it have roiled markets in recent weeks, as the global economy deals with the consequences from Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. “Today, it appears the market is less concerned about inflation and the Fed’s ability to orchestrate a smooth landing,” said Chuck Carlson, president and CEO of Horizon Investment Services in Hammond, Indiana. Carlson said that “the bias is still to the downside.”

    The Dow Jones Industrial Average increased by 618.34 points, or 1.98 percent, to 31,880.24, the S&P 500 increased by 72.39 points, or 1.86 percent, to 3,973.75, and the NASDAQ Composite increased by 180.66 points, or 1.59 percent, to 11,535.28. On Wednesday, the Fed will disclose minutes from its most recent policy meeting, giving investors a glimpse into its thinking. This week’s economic statistics may provide more evidence that inflation peaked in March, as well as if high prices have harmed consumer purchasing power.

    The S&P 500’s 11 major sectors all closed the session in the green, with financials leading the way with a 3.2 percent gain. The first-quarter reporting season is virtually over, with 474 of the S&P 500 businesses having released results. According to Refinitiv, 78 percent of them exceeded expectations. According to Refinitiv, current quarter pre-announcements are typically pessimistic, with 59 negative estimates and 32 positive, compared to 37 negative and 52 positive in the year-ago quarter.

    VMWare Inc’s stock jumped 24.8 percent on news that chipmaker Broadcom Inc was in talks to buy the cloud service provider over the weekend. Broadcom’s stock fell 3.1 percent. Didi Global’s U.S.-listed shares fell 4.0 percent after shareholders voted to de-list the Chinese ride-hailing app from the New York Stock Exchange.

    Default Global oil prices have risen again as EU negotiates with Hungary

    Oil prices increased on Thursday, extending a cautious advance this week on signals of constrained supply, as the European Union (EU) negotiates with Hungary over plans to prohibit imports from Russia, the world’s second-largest crude supplier, following its invasion of Ukraine. At 0142 GMT, Brent crude futures for July settlement were up 7 cents, or 0.1 percent, to $114.10 per barrel. WTI crude futures for July delivery in the United States rose 22 cents, or 0.2 percent, to $110.55 a barrel.

    “An EU embargo on Russian oil imports is the key upward driver,” Commonwealth Bank commodities analyst. On Wednesday, European Council President Charles Michel expressed confidence that a deal may be struck before the council’s next meeting on May 30. However, Hungary continues to be a stumbling barrier to the EU penalties that require unanimous agreement. Hungary is requesting 750 million Euros ($800 million) to improve its refineries and expand a pipeline from Croatia, allowing it to transition away from Russian oil.

    Even without a formal ban, Russian oil is scarce on the market as buyers and traders avoid interacting with the country’s crude and fuel providers. Cargoes from Baltic ports are taking lengthier routes to Asian refineries, according to ANZ analysts, while exports to the Netherlands and France have all but ceased. The Permian Basin’s expected growth in oil output to a record high of 5.2 million barrels per day (bpd) is unlikely to close the 2 million to 3 million bpd gap left by lost Russian supply analyst said.

    Default Gold prices are declining as the Fed maintains its aggressive policy stance

    On Thursday, gold prices fell, with some investors profiting after minutes from a US Federal Reserve policy meeting revealed that the central bank was likely to maintain its interest-rate hikes. The price of spot gold fell 0.1 percent to $1,851.57 per ounce. Gold futures in the United States rose 0.2 percent to $1,849.8. According to Brian Lan, managing director of dealer Gold Silver Central, the Fed’s resolve to hiking rates has influenced gold a little, with some profits being taken as the news sinks in, and prices could drop to $1,820 or so.

    On Wednesday, gold recovered some of its losses caused by the dollar’s rise as minutes from the Fed’s May meeting suggested the central bank would not become more aggressive, instead raising interest rates by 50 basis points in June and July to combat inflation. In the long run, however, investors who are aware that a recession is on the horizon are looking for a high-value asset that can help them get through this period, and gold will shine, according to Lan.

    The opportunity cost of owning bullion, which returns nothing, rises as short-term interest rates and bond yields rise in the United States. During financial crises, however, gold is seen as a safe-haven asset. The Fed’s decision to add two more half-percentage-point raises and then wait to see how they affect the economy was good for gold, but the market’s reaction has been disappointing, according to Michael McCarthy, chief strategy officer at Tiger Brokers in Australia.

    Default Crude Oil Climbed Whether Russia’s Oil Imports Will Be Banned by the EU

    Crude oil closed yesterday at 9080, up 2.06%, as traders awaited news on whether the European Union would agree to an embargo on Russian oil imports. On Monday and Tuesday, the EU will gather to consider the sixth package of sanctions against Russia for its invasion of Ukraine, which Moscow refers to as a “special military operation.”

    When the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries and its allies, including Russia, meet on Thursday, they are expected to reject Western efforts to accelerate output increases, underscoring market tightness. They will maintain to their existing plans to increase output by 432,000 barrels per day in July. Russia slightly increased oil production to 10.17 million barrels per day (bpd) between May 1 and 29, according to the TASS news agency, although output is still over 1 million bpd lower than when the West placed sanctions on Moscow. After some clients postponed or denied Russian barrels owing to sanctions, production from the world’s third-largest producer after the United States and Saudi Arabia fell by almost 10% to 10.05 million bpd in April from February. On May 1-29, TASS reported that output had been marginally restored to 10.17 million bpd.

    Technically, the market is seeing fresh buying, with open interest up 9.13 percent to settle at 11055, while prices are up 183 rupees.

    Default OPEC prepares to establish new output targets, oil prices are rising

    Oil prices have climbed ahead of the OPEC cartel of oil-producing nations’ meeting on Thursday, as ministers prepare to establish output targets for July in their first meeting since the European Union slapped sanctions on Russian petroleum. Some members of OPEC are pressuring the organisation to eliminate Russia, the world’s third largest oil producer, from future quotas, potentially allowing Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates to pump more oil.

    Brent crude oil futures, the North Sea benchmark, climbed 2% to $117 a barrel at one point on Wednesday. West Texas Intermediate, its North American counterpart, climbed by a comparable amount to just under $116 a barrel. Prices had dipped from highs of over $125 earlier in the week, but had rebounded as investors considered how much supply could be raised to offset the sanctions’ impact.

    On Thursday, ministers from OPEC’S 13 members and ten non-Opec producers led by Russia, known as Opec+, will meet by video conference. They’re anticipated to accept a 432,000-barrel-per-day hike in July, the latest in a series of monthly increases that began in September 2021. Russia has fallen behind the rest of the group, with output predicted to fall by 8% this year. According to the Wall Street Journal, Russia’s declining production has spurred some countries, including Gulf members, to propose eliminating Russia from production targets, allowing other members to increase their output.

    Oil and energy costs have risen dramatically in recent months as global economies emerge from pandemic lockdowns, exacerbated by the consequences from Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. As people struggle with increased fuel prices, rapid price swings have contributed to inflationary pressures and cost-of-living issues around the world.

    The price hikes have prompted failed attempts by US Vice President Joe Biden and UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson to persuade other major oil producers, such as Saudi Arabia, to pump more, infuriating environmentalists who argue that governments should instead focus on energy efficiency measures that could quickly reduce demand. G7 energy ministers urged for higher OPEC production during a meeting last week in Germany.

    The break-up of the Opec+ group, according to Bjarne Schieldrop, chief commodities analyst at SEB, will allow Saudi Arabia and the UAE to employ their spare capacity to boost production. However, he questioned if it would help to relieve the pressure on global markets. He claimed that “minds in the EU and the US are concentrated on damaging Russian petro-income.” “More oil from Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates will allow the west to impose stricter sanctions, reducing Russian oil supplies while keeping oil prices stable.” As a result, there would be no more supply for the market overall.”

    Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, on the other hand, stated on Wednesday that Russia hopes to continue working with OPEC. “The ideas of cooperation on this basis retain their meaning and relevance,” Lavrov said at a news conference in Saudi Arabia during a visit to the Middle East. Most of Russia’s important banks involved in the oil trade have been sanctioned by the US, EU, and allies such as the UK, and the EU belatedly agreed on a partial embargo on oil imports on Tuesday.

    Another step to make it more difficult for Russia to export has been collaboration between the UK and the EU to prohibit insurers from insuring ships transporting Russian oil. The world’s oldest insurance market, Lloyd’s of London, announced on Wednesday that it is working closely with British and other governments and authorities to impose global sanctions on Russia.

    Default With an eye on the US NFP, the XAU/USD is approaching the $1,875 mark

    The gold price (XAU/USD) is swinging around $1,870, following an upswing to reclaim a one-month high during Friday’s early Asian session, as the NFP-related caution saps enthusiasm. The recent mixed stories about China, as well as resurgence in US Treasury yields, may also pose a threat to gold prices.

    The previous day, though, the yellow metal climbed the highest in a fortnight as the US Dollar Index experienced its greatest daily drop in two weeks. Softer US statistics and Fed policymakers’ hesitation, on the other hand, appeared to have prompted the US dollar’s decline, as well as accelerated gold prices.

    The early indication of Friday’s US Nonfarm Payrolls (NFP), namely the US ADP Employment Change, fell to 128K for May, vs 300K estimates and a downwardly revised 202K previous figure. The Weekly US Initial Jobless Claims, on the other hand, fell to 200K from 210K expected and 211K the week before. In addition, Nonfarm Productivity and Unit Labor Costs also improved in Q1, to -7.3 percent and 12.6 percent, respectively, compared to market consensus numbers of -7.5 percent and 11.6 percent. Furthermore, factory orders in the United States fell by 0.3 percent in April, compared to a revised 1.8 percent in March and an estimate of 0.7 percent.

    Lael Brainard, the Vice-Chair of the Federal Reserve, and Loretta Mester, the President of the Cleveland Federal Reserve, both repeated statements that suggested increasing odds supporting the Fed’s aggressive rate hikes. Deputy US Trade Representative (USTR) Sarah Bianchi stated in a Reuters interview on Thursday that “all options are on the table” when it comes to tariff determinations on Chinese goods. “The US Trade Representative is seeking a ‘strategic realignment’ with China, as well as a tariff structure that ‘makes sense,'” the diplomat noted.

    Default As US administration strives for lower gasoline cost, oil prices are falling

    in ro ham eslah kon:
    Oil prices fell sharply in early trade on Wednesday, despite US President Joe Biden’s efforts to lower increasing fuel costs, which included pressure on large US corporations to help drivers during the country’s peak summer demand. At 00:31 GMT, US West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude futures were down $1.34, or 1.2 percent, to $108.18 a barrel, while Brent crude futures were down $1.33, or 1.2 percent, to $113.32.

    As the US battles rising gasoline costs and inflation, US President Joe Biden is poised to ask for a temporary suspension of the 18.4-cent-per-gallon federal gasoline tax on Wednesday, according to a person briefed on the proposal. On Monday, Biden said he was debating whether or not to run for president.

    “Even oil traders recognized that higher oil prices would lead to a more aggressive tag team onslaught from the (US) Fed pushing rates higher and the Biden administration getting increasingly creative on the political and fiscal front to tame the energy inflation beast,” said Stephen Innes, managing partner at SPI Asset Management.

    Seven oil corporations are scheduled to meet with Vice President Joe Biden on Thursday, under pressure from the White House to lower fuel costs as they post record profits. On Tuesday, however, Chevron CEO Michael Wirth stated that criticizing the oil business was not the way to lower petrol prices.

    “These measures are not helpful in solving the difficulties we face,” Wirth wrote in a letter to Biden, prompting Biden to respond that the industry was being overly sensitive. Despite inflation concerns, demand is projected to rise to pre-COVID levels, and supply is expected to trail demand growth, keeping the market tight, as trading giant Vitol and Exxon Mobil Corp pointed out this week.
