Avalanche’s AVAX price could make a run towards $40, here’s how

June 25, 2022 07:12   FXStreet   Market News  

  • AVAX price has risen 35% since the June 11 lows at $13.71.
  • Avalanche price shows bullish interest on the volume indicator.
  • Invalidation of the downtrend is a breach below 13.71.

Avalanche’s AVAX price could start moving violently towards $30. Traders should keep their eyes on the digital gaming token to partake in a short-term bull-run.

AVAX price looks ready for a counter-trend move 

Avalanche’s AVAX price shows newfound interest as the bulls have managed to rally 35% since the June 11 lows at $13.71. Bears anticipating more sell-offs could find themselves on the wrong side of the trade as the crypto market is showing signs of a reversal in the future. 

AVAX price currently trades at $19.44 as profit-taking at the psychological $20 level is expected. If the rally is genuine, the smart money could begin sending the Avalanche price towards $30 to breach previous resistant zones. The Relative Strength Index provides a bullish divergence between wave three and the short-lived wave five on the nine-hour chart. This subtle piece of evidence could be the only justification for a bullish surge in retrospect.

AVAX/USDT 9-Hour Chart

Invalidation of the bullish thesis is a breach below the June 11 low at $13.71, providing a 3-1 risk-to-reward ratio. If the bears manage to breach $13.71, expect a fall to $10, resulting in a 45% decrease from the current AVAX price.

NZD/USD rises above 0.6300 on an upbeat market mood and a soft US dollar

June 25, 2022 05:49   FXStreet   Market News  

  • The NZD/USD erased early week losses and finished the week flat.
  • On Friday, recession fears abated, but growing risks remain skewed to the downside.
  • St. Louis Fed’s Bullard commented that the US economy is fine and that recession worries are exaggerated.

The New Zealand dollar recorded solid gains vs. the greenback, snapping two days of consecutive losses, recovering from daily lows near 0.6266, piercing through the 0.6300 figure, and ending near the daily highs at around 0.6327. At 0.6312, the NZD/USD reflects Friday’s upbeat market mood, which underpinned risk-sensitive currencies in the FX space.

Upbeat sentiment and a weaker greenback, a tailwind for the NZD/USD

Risk appetite increased in the session as witnessed by Wall Street finishing with robust gains after plunging to bear market levels, meaning losses of 20% or more from all-time-highs. US recession fears abated on US economic data, showing that consumer inflation expectations lowered from a 14-year high. Nevertheless, Thursday’s US S&P Global PMIs printed that the economy is slowing down, coupled with inflation expectations taming, which denotes the Fed could keep hiking but not at a faster pace.

During the North American session, the St. Louis Fed President James Bullard said US recession worries are overblown and commented that the US would be fine. He added that tightening policy will slow down the economy to a trend pace of growth and expects the need to move the FFR near 3.50%.

Late in the day, San Francisco Fed President Mary Daly said the Fed doesn’t need to think about the endpoint of the balance sheet yet, and added that the central bank would communicate regarding that. Daly’s said that she does not see a recession.

NZD/USD traders should be aware of New Zealand’s holiday, suggesting that no economic data is available. Meanwhile, the US economic docket featured the UoM Consumer Sentiment on its final reading for June, which plunged to 50. US New Home Sales rose 10.7% in May to 0.696 million and beat expectations of 0.588 million

In the week ahead, the New Zealand economic docket will feature ANZ Business Confidence, ANZ Consumer Confidence, and Building Permits. On the US front, the calendar will unveil Durable Goods Orders, CB Consumer Confidence, Gross Domestic Product, and the Fed’s favorite gauge of inflation, the Personal Consumption Expenditure (PCE) for May.

Forexlive Americas FX news wrap: Market senses a less-hawkish Fed

June 25, 2022 05:29   Forexlive Latest News   Market News  

Markets:

  • S&P 500 up 115 points, or 3.0%, to 3914
  • US 10-year yields up 6.8 bps to 3.14%
  • WTI crude oil up $2.79 to $107.66
  • Gold up $4 to $1826
  • AUD leads, JPY lags

After hiking by 75 basis points instead of the 50 bps he long-ascribed to, Powell cited the jump in inflation expectations in the UMich consumer sentiment survey as a factor. Well, he might have waited until the final data was out, as the numbers were lowered.

The market jumped on that and the odds of just a 50 bps hike in July roughly doubled to 27%. That sentiment weighed on the US dollar and boosted stocks as well with some particularly large moves in the commodity currencies.

CAD was doubly boosted by a rebound in oil that left crude down just $2 on the week — a far cry from the mid-week crash. After touching 1.3000 in Asia, USD/CAD finished on the lows at 1.2880.

AUD/USD was similarly strong and found some breathing room above the double bottom 0.6833 in a climb to 0.6937.

The growing problem is the push-and-pull in bonds. The better tone on risk assets took 10-year yields from a low of 3.03% to 3.14%, with less worry about a recession starting to mean a shift back to worries about inflation. That’s a tenuous dynamic that leaves a narrow window for an extension of this price action.

The US dollar was broadly weak but made some progress against the yen.

Curiously, the pound was able to find few bids despite the positive risk tone. Some of that relates back to worries about growth in the eurozone. For its part, the euro managed to climb 30 pips on the session.

Have a great weekend.

EUR/GBP Price Analysis: Stays below 0.8600 despite an upbeat mood and a weaker GBP

June 25, 2022 04:49   FXStreet   Market News  

  • The shared currency finished the week with decent gains of 0.21%.
  • Sentiment remains optimistic, despite recession fears threatening.
  • EUR/GBP Price Analysis: Remains upwards but struggling at 0.8600 might open the door for selling pressure.

The EUR/GBP accelerates for the fourth day out of five in the week, set to finish with decent gains of 0.21%. On Friday, the cross-currency pair slumped towards its daily low at 0.8561, then snapped back and rose towards 0.8600. At 0.8595, the EUR/GBP retained the control and extended its weekly rally to two consecutive weeks.

Wall Street is set to finish the week on an upbeat tone, registering gains in the range of 2.34% and 2.73%. US economic slowdown, alongside lower inflation expectations, revealed at the University of Michigan June’s Consumer sentiment report tempered expectations for the Federal Reserve hike plan.

Reflection of the abovementioned are money market futures STIRs, showing that traders expect the Federal funds rate (FFR) to end around 3.50%, aligned with the St. Louis Fed President James Bullard’s forecast.

Friday’s EUR/GBP price action shows that the cross opened near 0.8580s and dipped towards 0.8561 before bouncing off those lows, settling around 0.8590. nevertheless, the lack of a EUR/GBP bullish impulse kept the pair below the 0.8600 threshold.

EUR/GBP Price Analysis: Technical outlook

Daily chart

EUR/GBP price action depicts the pair as upward biased. However, buyers unable to break above the 0.8650 kept the cross-currency range-bound in the 0.8550-0.8650 area, meaning consolidation lies ahead. Further confirmation of that is the Relative Strength Index (RSI) At 55.36, in positive territory but with an almost horizontal slope.

Therefore, the EUR/GBP top of the range is 0.8650. A breach of the latter would expose the 0.8700 figure. Once cleared, the next ceiling level would be the YTD high at 0.8720, followed by 0.8800.

On the flip side, the EUR/GBP first support is the 20-EMA at 0.5857. Break below would expose June’s 16 low at 0.8511, followed by the 50-EMA at 0.8493.
