Currency Summaries

EUR/USD: The euro edged higher against the U.S. dollar on Thursday, as outlook remained grim for greenback after Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell’s bleak comments on the U.S. economy, which bolstered expectations of an interest rate cut later this month. The dollar, however, trimmed losses against   euro earlier on Thursday after data showed U.S. underlying consumer prices rose 0.3% in June, the most in nearly 1-1/2 years, with solid gains in the costs of a range of goods and service. The euro was up 0.04 percent at $1.1254. An index that tracks the dollar versus a basket of six major currencies was down 0.02 at 97.07. Immediate resistance can be seen at 1.1285 (21 DMA), an upside break can trigger rise towards 1.1322 (July 2nd high).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 1.1240 (50 DMA), a break below could take the pair towards 1.1192 (July 9th low).

GBP/USD: The pound edged higher thanks to broad-based dollar weakness, snapping a recent losing streak, but a weakening economy and Brexit fears kept a firm lid on gains. The British currency had briefly plumbed a two-year low this week at $1.2439  excluding a “flash crash” episode on Jan. 3 when it dropped to as low as $1.2409. On Thursday, it gained 0.21% to $1.2525 after peaking at $1.2571. Though Powell’s dovish tone in congressional testimony on Wednesday helped the British currency recover somewhat, it has fallen 3.7% in the last three months, the losses accelerating as Bank of England Governor Mark Carney this month appeared to signal the possibility of a rate cut. Immediate resistance can be seen at 1.2570 (11 DMA), an upside break can trigger rise towards 1.2607 (21 DMA).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 1.2424 (Lower Bollinger Band), a break below could take the pair towards 1.2400 (Psychological level).

USD/CAD:The Canadian dollar strengthened against its U.S. counterpart on Thursday, approaching last week's eight-month high, as oil prices rose and as the greenback broadly declined following dovish comments by Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell. The U.S. dollar was stuck at a five-day low after Powell on Wednesday kept the door open for U.S. interest rate cuts. The price of oil, one of Canada's major exports, rose as oil rigs in the Gulf of Mexico were evacuated ahead of a storm, while an incident involving a British tanker in the Middle East highlighted tensions in the region. U.S. crude oil futures were up 0.2% at $60.52 a barrel. At (1253 GMT), the Canadian dollar was trading 0.2% higher at 1.3052 to the greenback. The currency, which last Thursday notched an eight-month high at 1.3038, traded in a range of 1.3042 to 1.3080.Immediate resistance can be seen at 1.3092 (5 DMA), an upside break can trigger rise towards 1.3175 (21 DMA).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 1.3044 (Daily Low), a break below could take the pair towards 1.3000 (Psychological level).

USD/JPY: The dollar weakened against the Japanese yen on Thursday, after Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell bolstered expectations the Fed would cut U.S. interest rates soon. n his first day of testimony before Congress on Wednesday, Powell confirmed the U.S. economy was still under threat from disappointing factory activity, tame inflation and a simmering trade war, and said the Fed stood ready to “act as appropriate”. A strong June U.S. jobs report earlier this month heightened expectations the Fed was more likely to cut by 25 basis points than by 50. But Powell’s cautious stance helped fuel bets on heftier easing at its next policy meeting on July 30-31.The dollar was down 0.1% at 108.44 yen, forced off a six-week high of 108.990 the previous day..Strong resistance can be seen at 108.58 (5 DMA), an upside break can trigger rise towards 108.88 (50 DMA).On the downside, immediate support is seen at 108.06 (21 DMA), a break below could take the pair towards 107.51 (July 3rd low).

Treasuries Recap

Indirect bidders, including foreign central banks, took the smallest percentage of a 30-year offering since February 2015. The 30-year yield jumped to a session high following the sale and was last up 7.1 basis points to 2.642%.

Commodities Recap

Gold prices slumped 1% on Thursday, erasing gains posted earlier in the session after stronger-than-expected consumer inflation in the United States cast doubts whether the U.S. central bank will cut interest rates as aggressively as expected.

Spot gold shed 1% to $1,404.40 per ounce as of 1:30 p.m. EDT (1730 GMT), dropping nearly $15 after U.S. consumer prices demonstrated a pick-up in underlying inflation, increasing in June by the most in nearly 1-1/2 years.U.S. gold futures settled 0.4% lower to $1,406.70 per ounce.

Oil prices fell on Thursday as OPEC forecast slower demand for its crude next year, with crude futures easing from their highest in more than a month after U.S. producers cut about half of their output in the Gulf of Mexico ahead of what could be one of the first major storms of the Atlantic hurricane.

Brent crude futures fell 49 cents to settle at $66.52 a barrel. During the session, they hit their highest since May 30 at $67.65 a barrel.
