    EUR/USD

    The euro showed strong growth against the US dollar on July 10, recovering the losses of the last three trading sessions. The reason for the emergence of a strong "bullish" dynamics was the correction of the dollar in response to the speech of Fed Chairman Jerome Powell. Powell pointed to the growing uncertainty in the prospects for the American economy, which is deteriorating under the influence of internal and external factors. Investment in the business, according to Powell, continues to decline, which poses a threat of a further slowdown in economic growth. The regulator's head did not name any exact dates for further stimulation, but the market believed in a rate cut of 25 basis points during the meeting on July 30-31. Moreover, a number of analysts believe that the Fed may decide on a stronger reduction in the rate, by 50 basis points at once. Today, the pair is also trading in an uptrend. Investors are focused on statistics on consumer inflation in Germany and France, as well as the publication of information about the latest ECB meeting on monetary policy.

    GBP/USD

    The pound showed the development of correctional dynamics against the US dollar on July 10. The growth of the instrument was facilitated by a decline in the dollar after the speech of Fed Chairman Jerome Powell, who focused on the negative aspects in the American economy, which prompted investors to return to the idea of the Fed lowering the interest rate during the July meeting. Published macroeconomic statistics from the UK was moderately optimistic. Industrial output in May showed an increase of 1.4% MoM after a decline of 2.9% MoM, which was slightly worse than forecasts of 1.5% MoM. YoY, production grew by 0.9% after declining by 1.1% in April. The experts were expecting 1.1% YoY. GDP in May rose by 0.3% MoM after a decrease of 0.4% MoM a month earlier. But the NIESR assessment of GDP in June was negative: −0.1% against 0.3%.

    AUD/USD

    The Australian dollar returned to a positive trend against the US one, having received support after the speech of Fed Chairman, which increased the risks of a rate cut during the meeting on July 30-31. AUD also ignored weak macroeconomic publications from Australia. Westpac consumer confidence index in July showed a decline of 4.1% MoM after declining by 0.6% MoM last month. Today, the instrument maintains upward dynamics. Moderate support for the "Australian" provides data on the dynamics of mortgage loans. In May, the indicator reached the zero level after a decline of 0.9% MoM in April. Analysts were expecting a decline of 0.6% MoM. Investment loans for the construction of new homes in May declined by 1.7% MoM after declining by 2.2% MoM last month.

    USD/JPY

    The US dollar fell markedly against the Japanese yen on Wednesday. The reason for the emergence of negative dynamics was a sharp increase in the likelihood of a reduction in the Fed's interest rate during the meeting of July 30-31 amid the "dovish" rhetoric of Fed Chairman Jerome Powell. More active growth of the instrument was hampered by the aggravation of the trade conflict between Japan and South Korea. Today, there is also a negative trend, despite the publication of ambiguous macroeconomic statistics from Japan. Services PMI in Japan fell by 0.2% MoM in June after rising by 0.8% MoM last month. Analysts were expecting a decline of only 0.1% MoM. In turn, the rate of foreign investment in Japanese bonds supported the yen. For the week of July 5, the volume of investment rose from 58.5 to 192.2 billion JPY.

    Oil

    Oil prices rose sharply on July 10, updating local highs since the beginning of June. The growth of the instrument was facilitated by the large-scale weakening of the dollar after the speech of Fed Chairman Jerome Powell. In addition, the quotes were strongly supported by a published EIA report. For the week of July 5, the oil stocks decreased by 9.5 million barrels, which turned out to be significantly more than the expected reduction of 3.567 million. Meanwhile, oil production in the USA increased again from 12.200 to 12.300 million barrels per day.

    EUR/USD

    The euro showed ambiguous dynamics against the US dollar on Thursday, having managed to update the local maxima of July 5. The European currency was supported by published macroeconomic statistics from Germany. The harmonized consumer price index in June rose by 0.3% MoM after rising by 0.1% in May. The index showed an increase of 1.5% YoY, which also turned out to be better than market expectations of 1.3%. Information about the ECB meeting on monetary policy of 5-6 June, which was also published yesterday, put moderate pressure on the euro. The protocols reflected the revision of the Eurozone GDP for 2019 up to 1.2% YoY. However, for 2020 and 2021, GDP forecasts were revised down to 1.4% YoY. The regulator also expects current interest rates to remain unchanged at least until the first half of 2020. Today, investors are focused on the publication of May statistics on industrial output in the Eurozone.

    GBP/USD

    The pound ended Thursday with ambiguous dynamics. Despite the growth during the day, with the opening of the American session, the "bearish" sentiment recovered, which led to the correction and closing of the pair in the red zone. Traders were rather skeptical about the Bank of England financial stability report published on Thursday. However, the document reflected the readiness of the UK financial system to the negative consequences of the "tough" Brexit. But investors were much more interested in the published macroeconomic statistics on consumer inflation in the USA. In June, the consumer price index, excluding food and energy, rose by 0.3% MoM and 2.1% YoY, with a forecast of 0.2% MoM and 2.0% YoY.

    AUD/USD

    The Australian dollar is steadily strengthening against the US dollar, updating local highs since July 5. Published on Thursday, macroeconomic statistics from Australia turned out to be ambiguous, which, however, did not prevent the AUD from maintaining an uptrend. Moreover, investors partially ignored the strong US data on consumer inflation, which increased the likelihood of the Fed keeping the interest rates unchanged in July. Investment loans for the construction of new homes in May declined by 1.7% MoM after declining by 2.2% MoM last month. The volume of mortgage loans in May showed zero dynamics after a decline of 0.9% MoM in April.

    USD/JPY

    The US dollar showed a decline against the Japanese yen on July 11 but managed to recover by the closing of the day session, having received support from strong consumer inflation data. Moderate support was also provided by data on applications for unemployment benefits. For the week of July 5, the number of initial jobless claims decreased from 222K to 209K, significantly better than the forecast of 223K. Today the instrument is again trading in a downtrend, despite the publication of ambiguous statistics from Japan. Industrial output in May slowed from 2.3% to 2.2% MoM, which turned out to be worse than analysts' expectations. YoY, the decline deteriorated from −1.8% to −2.1%. However, the use of production capacity increased from 1.6% to 1.7% MoM.

    Oil

    Oil prices showed a slight increase on July 11 but corrected to the opening marks by the end of the day session. Quotes were supported by the closure of a number of oil rigs in the Gulf of Mexico in anticipation of the storm. In addition, investors are closely watching the development of tensions in the Middle East after the deterioration of US-Iranian relations. On Friday, investors are focused on Baker Hughes report on active oil platforms in the USA.

    EUR/USD

    The euro maintains an upward trend against the US dollar. On July 12, the single currency managed to strengthen amid the publication of good macroeconomic statistics from the Eurozone. Industrial output in May rose by 0.9% MoM after declining by 0.4% MoM last month. Analysts expected growth of only 0.2% MoM. The indicator accelerated the decline from −0.4% YoY to −0.5% YoY, which, however, turned out to be significantly better than forecasts of −1.6% YoY. More confidently strengthening of the instrument was hampered by previously published data from Germany. The wholesale price index in June showed a decline of 0.5% MoM after rising by 0.3% MoM last month. Investors predicted the growth of 0.2% MoM. YoY, the index growth slowed down from 1.6% to 0.3%, which also turned out to be significantly worse than analysts' expectations of 1.3%.

    GBP/USD

    The pound showed quite an active growth against the US dollar on Friday, updating local highs of July 5. There were none interesting macroeconomic statistics from the USA and the UK, so the focus was on existing factors. However, investors followed the speech of the representative of the Bank of England Gertjan Vlieghe, who allowed the possibility of a sharp reduction in interest rates by the regulator, if the government fails to approve the agreement on Brexit. Today, the instrument is trading with moderate growth, preparing to update the previous local maxima. Strengthening of the pound is not hampered by weak data from the UK. The Rightmove house price index in June showed a decline of 0.2% MoM and 0.2% YoY after rising by 0.3% MoM and 0.0% YoY in May.

    AUD/USD

    The Australian dollar showed strong growth against the US one on Friday, rising to the highs of July 5. The reason for the strengthening of the instrument was the correctional dynamics of the US currency. Ambiguous macroeconomic statistics from China and the United States hampered a more confident growth of the “Australian”. Today, the instrument is supported by strong data from China. Retail sales in June rose by 9.8% YoY after rising by 8.6% YoY last month. Analysts were expecting a slowdown to 8.3% YoY. The industrial output for the same period increased by 6.3% YoY after rising by 5.0% YoY in May. In Q2, China's GDP accelerated from 1.4% QoQ to 1.6% QoQ (with a forecast of 1.5% QoQ).

    USD/JPY

    The US dollar showed a steady decline against the Japanese yen on Friday, updating local lows of July 5. It is curious that this happened amid the publication of weak macroeconomic statistics from Japan. In May, industrial output in Japan slowed down from 2.3% MoM to 2.0% MoM. YoY, the decline in production increased from −1.8% to −2.1%, which turned out to be worse than market expectations. Today, the pair is trading in an uptrend. Japan's markets are closed on Monday to celebrate the Marine Day, so statistics from China and the United States remain in the spotlight. Chinese data on GDP, retail sales, and industrial output were stronger than forecasts, which contributed to the growth of investor interest in risk. With the opening of the American session, investors are awaiting the publication of the index of the July Manufacturing PMI from the New York FRB.

    Oil

    Oil prices are consolidating near local highs, updated at the end of the week. Quotes are supported by a reduction in the production of some US manufacturers in the Gulf of Mexico due to a tropical storm. On the other hand, investors were disappointed with the published report of the International Energy Agency. According to it, further growth in production in the USA will contribute to the growing imbalance of supply and demand in the market. The IEA expects a decline in oil demand by 2020 to a record level since 2003. Additional support for quotes was provided by Baker Hughes report on active oil platforms in the USA published on Friday. During the week, the number of drilling rigs decreased from 788 to 784 units.

    EUR/USD

    The euro showed a negative trend against the US dollar on July 15, departing from local highs, updated on Thursday. On Monday, there were no interesting macroeconomic statistics from the Eurozone, so investors concentrated on existing data and releases from China. In the US, only the New York Fed Manufacturing PMI has been published. In July, the figure rose by 4.3 points after falling by 8.6 points in June and with the forecast of growth by only 2.0 points. Today the pair is trading ambiguously, waiting for the appearance of new drivers. Investors are focused on a block of statistics on business sentiment in Germany and the Eurozone from the ZEW Institute. Also, investors are awaiting the publication of data on consumer prices in Italy for June and the Eurozone trade balance for May. The USA will respond by releases on retail sales and industrial output for June. By the end of the daily session, the market expects the speech of Fed Chairman Jerome Powell.

    GBP/USD

    The pound fell markedly against the US dollar on Monday. A certain pressure on the British currency was caused by weak statistics on the dynamics of housing prices. The Rightmove house price index in June showed a decline of 0.2% MoM and 0.2% YoY after rising by 0.3% MoM and 0.0% YoY in May. An additional negative factor is growing uncertainty around Brexit. In the near future, elections will be held for the new prime minister, who will have to resolve issues of coordinating a deal with the EU. The current deadline implies the Brexit by October 31, and some candidates, for example, Boris Johnson, insist on a "tough" Brexit, if parliament re-blocks the agreement. Today, investors are focused on statistics on the labor market. Also, the speech of the Bank of England's head Mark Carney is expected.

    AUD/USD

    The Australian dollar continues to grow steadily against the US one, updating local highs since July 4. Monday's macroeconomic statistics from China provided strong support to AUD. The data indicated a sharp increase in industrial output in June from 5.0% to 6.3% YoY, with a forecast of 5.2% YoY. China's quarterly GDP accelerated from 1.4% to 1.6% (forecast 1.5% QoQ). YoY, as analysts had expected, GDP slowed down from 6.4% to 6.2%. Today, the pair is trading in both directions, waiting for the appearance of new drivers on the market. Investors are focused on the protocol of the RBA meeting of July 2, at which the regulator decided to reduce the interest rate by 25 basis points to 1.00%.

    USD/JPY

    The US dollar showed a flat dynamics against the Japanese yen on Monday and today shows a slight growth. There were no data from Japan, as the markets were closed on the occasion of the Marine Day. On Tuesday, there would be also no publications from Japan, so investors will focus on releases from the USA. The focus is on statistics on retail sales and industrial output for June. Fed Chairman Jerome Powell is expected to speak, as well as a number of other Fed representatives, among whom are Raphael Bostic, Michelle Bowman, and Charles Evans.

    Oil

    Oil prices declined slightly on July 15, responding to the publication of controversial macroeconomic statistics from China. Quotes are still supported by a high degree of tension in the Middle East, as well as the lack of progress in the US-China trade negotiations. Chinese data pointed to weak economic growth in annual terms, but also reflected a sharp increase in industrial output, which correlates well with the increase in crude oil imports. Import volumes rose to a record high of 13.07 million barrels per day (by 7.7% YoY). Growth was promoted by the launch of new refineries in China. On Tuesday, investors are focused on the publication of the API report on oil reserves for the week of July 12.

    EUR/USD

    The euro rose against the US dollar on July 17, recovering from a steady decline the day before, when investors were inspired by strong data on US retail sales. On Wednesday, the macroeconomic background changed noticeably. Traders are optimistic about the data on consumer inflation in the Eurozone. In June, the consumer price index rose by 0.2% MoM and 1.3% YoY, accelerating from the previous values of 0.1% MoM and 1.2% YoY. In June, the base CPI rose from 0.3% to 0.4% MoM, which turned out to be better than market expectations 0.3% MoM. YoY, the index accelerated from 0.8% to 1.1%, which coincided with analysts' forecasts. The pressure on the dollar is provided by a weak statistics on the US housing market. The change in the number of new living buildings in June fell by 0.9% MoM after a decrease of 0.4% MoM last month. The number of building permits in June decreased by 6.1% MoM after rising by 0.7% MoM in May.

    GBP/USD

    The pound showed a slight increase against the US dollar on July 17, interrupting the development of a strong "bearish" impulse formed the day before. The growth of the instrument was largely technical, while the macroeconomic background from the UK remained moderately negative. On Wednesday, investors were focused on a report on consumer and industrial inflation. In June, the consumer price index showed zero dynamics, slowing down from the previous growth of 0.3% MoM. YoY, the inflation continues to remain at the target level of 2%. The producer price index for the same period decreased by 0.1% MoM and grew by 1.6% YoY, which was worse than analysts' expectations of growth by 0.1% MoM and 1.7% YoY. Today, statistics on retail sales, as well as the Bank of England report on the terms of lending for Q2 2019 will be published.

    AUD/USD

    The Australian dollar closed Wednesday trading with ambiguous dynamics against the US currency. The growth of the instrument was due to the publication of weak data on the US housing market, but the generated momentum was not enough for AUD to enter the green zone. In addition, investors were in no hurry to open new positions awaiting the publication of the Australian labor market report for June. Today, the pair shows moderate growth, despite the fact that the report data were ambiguous. The employment rate in June rose by only 0.5K after rising by 45.3K last month. Analysts had expected growth of 10.0K. Full employment rose by 21.1K after rising by 2.4K last month. Part-time employment fell by 20.6K after rising by 39.8K in May. Unemployment, as expected, remained unchanged at 5.2%.

    USD/JPY

    The US dollar returned to decline against the Japanese yen on July 17, leveling off the results of Tuesday's correctional growth. The development of negative dynamics was supported by the publication of weak statistics on the housing market. In addition, investors are concerned about the possible exacerbation of the US-China trade relations since the ongoing negotiations have not yet led to positive results. The rate of houses construction started in the US in June decreased by 0.9% MoM after a decrease of 0.4% MoM last month. Analysts had expected growth of 1.9% MoM. The changes in the number of building permits issued was also negative. In June, it collapsed by 6.1% MoM after rising by 0.7% MoM last month. Today, the pair is developing a downward trend. The import and export statistics published in Japan exert certain pressure on the yen. Exports in June fell by 6.7% YoY after falling by 7.8% YoY last month. Analysts had expected a decline of 5.6% YoY. Import volumes collapsed by 5.2% YoY after falling by 1.5% YoY in May.

    Oil

    Oil prices showed a moderate decline on July 17, pressured by an ambiguous EIA report. The report reflected a decline in oil reserves for the week of July 12 by 3.11 million barrels, which turned out to be better than the expected decline by 2.69 million barrels. At the same time, the data indicated an increase in the stock of gasoline and distillates, which offset the positive effect of the decrease in crude oil reserves. US production fell from 12,300 to 12,000 million barrels, which, however, was due to the closure of some of the oil rigs in the Gulf of Mexico because of the storm.
