Market News – Stock markets benefit from Dollar correction


Economic Indicators & Central Banks:

  • Technical buying, bargain hunting, and risk aversion helped Treasuries rally and unwind recent losses. Yields dropped from the recent 2024 highs.
  • Asian stock markets strengthened, as the US Dollar corrected in the wake of comments from Japan’s currency chief Masato Kanda, who said G7 countries continue to stress that excessive swings and disorderly moves in the foreign exchange market were harmful for economies.
  • US Stockpiles expanded to 10-month high. The data overshadowed the impact of geopolitical tensions in the Middle East as traders await Israel’s response to Iran’s unprecedented recent attack.
  • President Joe Biden called for higher tariffs on imports of Chinese steel and aluminum.

Financial Markets Performance:

  • The USDIndex stumbled, falling to 105.66 at the end of the day from the intraday high of 106.48. It lost ground against most of its G10 peers. There wasn’t much on the calendar to provide new direction.
  • USDJPY lows retesting the 154 bottom! NOT an intervention yet. BoJ/MoF USDJPY intervention happens when there is more than 100+ pip move in seconds, not 50 pips.
  • USOIL slumped by 3% near $82, as US crude inventories rose by 2.7 million barrels last week, hitting the highest level since last June, while gauges of fuel demand declined.
  • Gold strengthened as the dollar weakened and bullion is trading at $2378.44 per ounce.

Market Trends:

  • Wall Street closed in the red after opening with small corrective gains. The NASDAQ underperformed, slumping -1.15%, with the S&P500 -0.58% lower, while the Dow lost -0.12.
  • The Nikkei closed 0.2% higher, the Hang Seng gained more than 1.
  • European and US futures are finding buyers.
  • A gauge of global chip stocks and AI bellwether Nvidia Corp. have both fallen into a technical correction.
  • The TMSC reported its first profit rise in a year, after strong AI demand revived growth at the world’s biggest contract chipmaker. The main chipmaker to Apple Inc. and Nvidia Corp. recorded a 9% rise in net income, beating estimates.
