The Dollar index has surged to its highest level since March, while the Dow Jones index closed lower for the third consecutive session. Several Federal Reserve governors have expressed support for raising interest rates ahead of the Fed’s meeting on September 19th, contributing to a more hawkish stance that has boosted the dollar. This has, in turn, put pressure on gold prices despite the dollar’s strength. In contrast, oil prices have climbed above the $86 mark. This increase comes as the world’s largest oil cartel, OPEC+, extended its oil supply curbs until year-end, signalling continued efforts to stabilise the market. Elsewhere, the Australian dollar has gained some respite from its recent sluggish trend. Australia’s GDP data came in slightly better than market consensus, although it has declined from its previous reading.

The struggling euro is now eagerly awaiting the eurozone’s GDP data, set to be released on Thursday, hoping it may serve as a catalyst for a potential rebound.

The Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) has opted to keep interest rates steady for a third consecutive month during its September policy meeting. The RBA has maintained its benchmark interest rate at 4.10%. This decision is rooted in the belief that recent economic data align with the central bank’s goal of steering inflation back within the target range of 2-3%. Consequently, the Australian Dollar experienced a measured retreat following this announcement.

The Japanese yen is losing ground and is currently trading at its weakest level against the USD since last November. This decline is primarily attributed to the strengthening of the dollar, driven by hawkish statements from Federal Reserve officials in anticipation of their meeting on September 19th. The USD/JPY pair has reached its highest level in 2023. This situation has raised concerns among investors, given that Japanese authorities have previously intervened in the foreign exchange market to stabilise their currency’s strength. Market participants are now closely monitoring whether Japanese authorities might take similar actions once again.

The British pound (GBP) has displayed a bearish trend against the US dollar (USD), forming a pattern of lower high prices for the GBP/USD currency pair. This trend has been driven by the ongoing strengthening of the US dollar, which is gaining momentum ahead of the Federal Reserve’s upcoming interest rate decision scheduled for September 20th. Furthermore, the lacklustre economic performance of the United Kingdom has prevented the pound from staging a significant rebound. Adding to the negative sentiment, the city of Birmingham, the second-largest city in the UK, recently declared itself bankrupt due to financial challenges faced by the city council. This development has further weighed on the value of the British pound.
The Sterling has formed a downtrend price pattern with a triple lower high. The RSI is approaching the oversold zone while the MACD continues declining, suggesting the bearish momentum has persisted.

Oil prices continue their ascent in Asian trade, firmly maintaining a trajectory towards 10-month highs. This bullish trend in oil prices is primarily attributed to larger-than-anticipated supply cuts enacted by oil giants Saudi Arabia and Russia. These strategic moves have signalled an impending tightening of supplies within the global oil market. Investors’ optimism in the oil sector is sustained by the extended agreement to cut oil production by an additional 1 million barrels per day until the end of December. Furthermore, Russia has reiterated its commitment to maintaining export curbs of 300,000 barrels per day until the close of the year.
