Fed Plans To Accelerate Monetary Tightening. Is It a Good Time To Buy US Dollars?

fed.jpg


The currency market moves mainly on the interest rate differential between various central banks around the world. The Federal Reserve of the United States is the most influential central bank, as it sets the rates over the world’s reserve currency.

In April, the Fed began a tightening cycle. It hiked the federal funds rate by 25bp in light of rising inflation and strong economic growth. Moreover, it warned that it is ready to hike even more aggressively should the data support it.

Following the rate hike, the Fed Chair Jerome Powell suggested that the Fed is ready to hike the federal funds rate by 50bp at their next meeting in May. In light of rising rates in the US as the economy grows and inflation runs hot, is it a good time to buy US dollars?
1.jpg


US Dollar Trades With A Mixed Tone

Despite the Fed’s hawkishness, the US dollar trades with a mixed tone. On the one hand, it has gained against its European peers, such as the euro and the British pound, and against the Japanese yen. On the other hand, it trades with a weak tone against the New Zealand and the Australian dollar.

Interestingly enough, the RBA and RBNZ have not raised the rates from their lower boundary. Yet, the two currencies down under are being bid against the dollar.

One explanation might be the inflation rate differential. Inflation in the US is at a four decade high, outpacing the one in Australia and New Zealand.

As such, despite the Fed’s intentions to speed up the rate hikes, the rising inflation rate is eroding the dollar’s strength. In other words, inflation is rising much higher than the Fed is hiking the rates; thus, the US dollar remains weak against its Australian and New Zealand peers.

The conflict in Europe scared investors away from the common currency. While not declining as many have thought, the euro remains weak as investors keep selling any rally.

All in all, the US dollar remains bid against the JPY and European currencies while offered against the Australian and New Zealand dollars. Traders will find out more details about the Fed’s plans on Wednesday when the previous meeting’s minutes are scheduled for release.

Euro Finds Buyers Ahead of the ECB Meeting
euro.jpg


A new trading week has just started, and the name of the game in the FX market is the JPY weakness. Since the Bank of Japan said in March that it would buy unlimited amounts of JGBs, the JPY pairs have gone through the roof.

Perhaps the most impressive rally is the one observed in the EUR/JPY cross. After initially dropping to 124 when the Russia-Ukraine war started, the cross reversed course dramatically and now trades close to 137, having gone up by almost 1,300 pips higher in about a month.

But the EUR/JPY cross is not the only EUR pair that has found support at lower levels. Even the EUR/USD has, despite the fact that the Federal Reserve of the US is already raising rates, while the ECB does not plan to do so anytime soon.

1-1.jpg


EUR/USD Still Bearish While Below the Pivotal Level

EUR/USD has been selling aggressively this year. First, there was the increased divergence between the Federal Reserve and the ECB. As traders saw the Fed become more vocal regarding the new tightening cycle, the ECB is only moderately hawkish.

Secondly, the war in Ukraine triggered a selloff as investors preferred not to take any risk and avoid the common currency. As such, the EUR/USD dropped below 1.12, a pivotal level for the pair.

In other words, despite a possible double bottom pattern, the EUR/USD remains bearish while below 1.12. A close above 1.12, however, would turn the bias bullish as investors would try for the measured move seen at 1.16.

ECB Meeting Looms Large

On Thursday, the ECB presents its monetary policy for the period ahead. The central bank faces a difficult task.

On the one hand, inflation runs way above the ECB’s tolerance level. As such, the central bank has issued some hawkish statements, and the market now anticipates that the deposit rate will be lifted from the current level this year.

On the other hand, the war in Ukraine calls for caution in tightening the monetary policy. Inflation is triggered by the supply side, and hiking rates will not help. Instead, hiking rates might trigger an economic recession.

All in all, this week, we will find out more about the ECB’s plans. One thing is sure – the common currency is being bought on every move lower so far.

BTCUSD: Double Bottom Pattern Above $39,000

Bitcoin was unable to continue its last week’s bullish momentum and started to decline after touching a high of $47,184 on April 5th.

Bitcoin broke the $40,000 support and touched a low of $36,210 in today’s Asian trading session.

The selloff continues across the crypto markets, and the global investor sentiments are low due to the continuation of the Russia-Ukraine war and its emerging impacts on the prices of energy and stock markets.

After falling below the $40,000 handle, bitcoin found support and has entered a mildly bullish channel in today’s European trading session.

We can clearly see a double bottom pattern above the $39,000 handle which is a bullish reversal pattern because it signifies the end of a downtrend and a shift towards an uptrend.

The Stoch and the Williams percent range are indicating an overbought level which means that in the immediate short term, a decline in the prices is expected.

The relative strength index is at 43 indicating a WEAK demand for bitcoin at the current market levels.

Bitcoin is now moving below its 100 hourly simple moving average and its 200 hourly exponential moving average.

Most of the major technical indicators are giving a BUY signal, which means that in the immediate short term, we are expecting targets of $41,000 and $43,000.

The average true range is indicating LESSER market volatility with a mild bullish momentum.

  • Bullish reversal seen in bitcoin above $39,000
  • The StochRSI is indicating an OVERSOLD level
  • The price is now trading just above its pivot level of $40,236
  • Some of the moving averages are giving a BUY market signal

Bitcoin: Bullish Reversal Seen Above $39,000
btcx.png


Bitcoin continues to move in a mildly bullish momentum with an upwards projection towards the level of $41,000 in the European trading session today.

In the immediate term, we are expecting a continuation of this bullish trend with the price of bitcoin ranging between the levels of $42,000 and $44,000 as it has entered into a consolidation phase now.

The drop in the level of BTCUSD that we saw last week was due to the profit-taking by the short-term investors.

The immediate short-term outlook for bitcoin is mildly bullish; the medium-term outlook is neutral; and the long-term outlook remains neutral under present market conditions.

The price of BTCUSD is now facing its classic resistance level of $40,336 and Fibonacci resistance level of $40,454, after which the path towards $41,000 will get cleared.

We can see that the daily RSI is below 50 printing at 38 which indicates that in the medium-term prices are expected to decline further.

In the last 24hrs, BTCUSD has gone down by 3.17% with a price change of -$1319, and has a 24hr trading volume of USD 36.665 billion. We can see an Increase of 60.52% in the trading volume as compared to yesterday, which is due to the selling by the long-term Investors.

The Week Ahead

The price of bitcoin is now moving in a consolidation phase above the level of $40,000. We can see some range-bounded movements between $41,000 and $43,000.

If the prices of bitcoin continue to remain above the important psychological support level of $40,000, next week, we may see some correction in the midrange upwards towards the $42,000 handle.

In the immediate short term, bitcoin’s mildly bullish momentum is expected to continue pushing to above the $41,000 handle this week.

The price of BTCUSD will need to remain above the important support level of $40,000 this week.

The weekly outlook is projected at $42,000 with a consolidation zone of $41,500.

BTC Market Cap

Due to the weak global investor sentiments coupled with the ongoing Russia-Ukraine war and the rising inflation, the BTC market cap has fallen down below $800 billion.

The present total market capitalization of bitcoin stands at $764 billion.

A low is formed near 1.0811 on FXOpen and the pair is now consolidating losses. It corrected above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the 1.0903 high to 1.0811 low.

On the upside, the pair is facing resistance near the 1.0850 level. It is near the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the 1.0903 high to 1.0811 low. The next major resistance is near the 1.0865 level and the 50 hourly simple moving average.

US Dollar Strengthened Ahead of the Federal Reserve’s May Meeting
dcx.jpg


The main event of the Easter week was the European Central Bank (ECB) meeting that ended last Thursday. The central bank left the monetary policy unchanged and even though it sounded more hawkish than expected, the euro lost ground against the US dollar.

The ECB announced that it would end its asset purchases in the third quarter of this year but acknowledged that the ECB and the Fed are on different paths in their policy normalization plans.

While the ECB may deliver one or two rate hikes this year, the Fed already hiked once. Moreover, many voices inside the FOMC Committee favor a 50bp rate hike in May, thus widening the gap between the interest rates on the two sides of the Atlantic.

Since COVID-19 started two years ago, many have been shocked by the Fed’s and other central banks’ responses to the pandemic. Monetary and fiscal policies expansion have led to excessive inflation, hurting savings and driving investors into inflation-protecting assets.

Some bought cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin and Ethereum in the hope that they will keep their value intact. Some other ones bought gold, the traditional hedge against inflation.

But the one currency that did appreciate was the US dollar. With all the doom and gloom over the years, the US dollar remains the de-facto world’s reserve currency.

12.jpg


The greenback has no rival, as almost 60% of the world’s reserves are in dollars. The euro comes in a distant second place, while the Japanese yen is in third place.

This is an important statistic ahead of the Fed’s May meeting. The three central banks (the Fed, the ECB, and the Bank of Japan) have different and divergent monetary policies.

As mentioned earlier, the Fed started to tighten the monetary policy. Excessive inflation will push the Fed to hike at every meeting in 2022 and, most likely, more than 25bp.

Moreover, the Fed has begun the process of shrinking its balance sheet. Quantitative tightening is the opposite of quantitative easing, thus contributing to even tighter financial conditions.

The ECB, as argued above, is nowhere near the Fed in terms of policy normalization. While inflation in Europe is above the ECB’s target, the war in Ukraine prevents the central bank from raising rates too fast.

As for the Bank of Japan is involved in a yield curve control process that led to one of the fastest depreciation on record for the Japanese yen.

Therefore, the central banks of the three top currencies in which reserves are kept have divergent policies. They all favor a stronger dollar ahead of the Fed’s May meeting and beyond.
