The major US indexes, the Ger30 and the UK100 are all trading in their bullish regions as per our trend indicator. In addition, their underlying momentum is also positive. This is matched by gold, whilst the USDOLLAR is trading in its weak channel with an underlying soft momentum.

Inflation continues to show signs of moderation, with the market now betting on a much less aggressive Fed rate hike of 25 bps for the 1st Feb meeting. The market is expecting a Fed pivot around June. Given the forward-looking nature of markets, risk-on is currently dominating. Markets do not move in a straight line, however given the current sentiment, dips will be attractive.


The weekly trend shows an uptrend. Given the pivot narrative, monitor dips for potential opportunities.


There is pressure on FXCM’s USDOLLAR, which runs inverse to gold. If the greenback continues to be stressed, XAUUSD will be an instrument to watch.


The NAS100 is a growth index, which is sensitive to interest rates. Given the Fed pivot narrative, the NAS100 is coming back into focus.

Bullish or Bearish, there are potential opportunities ahead.
