Both President Biden and the House Speaker claimed that yesterday’s meeting on the debt-limit bill has a productive outcome but both parties are yet to come to an agreement. Meanwhile, U.S. treasury secretary Janet Yellen, reiterated that the department will run out of cash in early June. The dollar index has strengthened and is poised above $103 while the Fed continues to signal for continuous rate hikes this year while the inflation remains sticky. Elsewhere, the oil market experienced a slight rebound in the start of the week, encouraged by the optimistic news from the White House regarding the debt-ceiling bill.

The US Dollar experienced a modest rebound in response to growing optimism regarding the ongoing debt ceiling talks. Key representatives from both political parties convened at the White House for an extensive discussion lasting over an hour. House Speaker Kevin McCarthy acknowledged the productive nature of the talks between himself and President Joe Biden. However, a conclusive agreement to avert a potentially catastrophic US debt default has yet to be reached. In addition, James Bullard, President of the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis, projected that the central bank would need to raise interest rates twice more within the current year to combat rising inflation, spurring further bullish momentum on the US Dollar.

The Dollar Index is trading higher while currently testing the resistance level. MACD has illustrated diminishing bearish momentum, while RSI is at 58, suggesting the index might extend its gains after breakout since the RSI stays above the midline.  

Resistance level: 103.30, 104.20

Support level: 102.40, 101.10

Gold prices witnessed a decline as the US Dollar strengthened, primarily driven by increasing optimism surrounding the ongoing debt ceiling talks. Evident in the extensive discussion that took place at the White House on Monday, key representatives from both political parties, including House Speaker Kevin McCarthy and President Joe Biden, expressed a positive outlook on the discussions, emphasising that the tone of the meeting was notably more favourable than in previous instances. Despite this, a definitive agreement to avert a potentially disastrous US debt default has not yet been reached. Investors are advised to continue monitoring any updates regarding the debt ceiling talks for further trading signals

Gold prices are trading lower following the prior retracement from the resistance level. MACD has illustrated diminishing bullish momentum, while RSI is at 44, suggesting the commodity might extend its losses toward support level.

Resistance level: 1980.00, 2005.00

Support level: 1950.00, 1910.00

eur/usd price chart 23 may 2023


The dollar has further strengthened, especially after the White House released optimistic news regarding the debt-limit bill. Both the U.S. president and the House Speaker claimed that the meeting has a progressive outcome but is yet to come to an agreement. On top of that, the Fed continues to signal for Hawkish monetary policy in this year as the inflation remains sticky. It is the same with the ECB; the European Central Bank continues to take on a very hawkish tone to meet the targeted inflation rate at 2%. 

The euro has moved sideways after rebounding from its crucial support level at 1.0765. the RSI has stopped moving upward, suggesting a slow down in buying power while the MACD is moving toward the zero line suggesting the bullish momentum is forming. 

Resistance level: 1.0850, 1.0914

Support level: 1.0765, 1.0681

The Japanese Yen experienced bearish momentum against the US Dollar throughout the year, hitting its lowest levels as investors placed their bets on a potential shift in central bank policies. This decline can be attributed to a combination of factors, including a widening yield spread between the United States and Japan and contrasting monetary policy stances. While several Federal Reserve members adopted a hawkish tone, signalling a possible tightening of monetary policy, the Bank of Japan remains committed to maintaining its accommodative stance to stimulate economic growth. This divergence in central bank approaches has further fueled the downward pressure on the Japanese Yen. 

USD/JPY is trading higher following the prior breakout above the previous resistance level. MACD has illustrated diminishing bearish momentum, while RSI is at 66, suggesting the pair might extend its gains as the RSI stays above the midline. 

Resistance level: 140.55, 142.35

Support level: 137.70, 133.70

gbp/usd price chart 23 may 2023


The British pound has been trading within a narrow range and experienced a slight decline due to the lack of decision-making during the meeting between President Biden and Speaker McCarthy. The market remains in a state of observation, eagerly awaiting a more definitive agreement on the debt ceiling issue. This cautious approach has made the pound trade sideways as investors seek clarity and direction. In the meantime, market participants are advised to focus on today’s UK economic data, as it has the potential to provide insights and drive further price movement in the pound. By closely monitoring these economic indicators, investors can make more informed decisions in their trading activities.

The overall trend for the pound currently leans towards a neutral-bearish sentiment, reflecting the cautious market sentiment and lack of decisive direction. Traders are advised to closely monitor key developments and upcoming events that may influence the pound’s trajectory to adjust their trading strategies accordingly.

Resistance level: 1.2540, 1.2680

Support level: 1.2345, 1.2145

Dow Jones, H4

The Dow Jones Industrial Average remained stagnant as investors exercised caution in light of the upcoming discussions surrounding the US debt ceiling. The meeting between President Joe Biden and top congressional Republican Kevin McCarthy, aimed at addressing the issue just 10 days before a possible unprecedented default, failed to yield any consensus thus far, although both parties expressed optimism regarding the meeting’s prospects. In the interim, market participants are advised to closely monitor forthcoming US economic data, particularly statements from Federal Reserve members, and key indicators such as the Personal Consumption Expenditure (PCE) index for further trading signals.

The Dow is trading flat while currently near the support level. MACD has illustrated diminishing bullish momentum, while RSI is at 46, suggesting the index might extend its losses after breakout since the RSI stays below the midline. 

Resistance level: 34210, 35450

Support level: 32950, 31660

crude oil price chart 23 may 2023


Oil prices experience an upward trend driven by robust demand and limited supply. The International Energy Agency (IEA) warns of a potential oil shortage in the latter part of the year, projecting that demand will surpass available supply by approximately 2 million barrels daily. However, concerns arose as President Joe Biden and House Speaker Kevin McCarthy failed to reach an agreement during their meeting, heightening the risk of a potential default. These contrasting factors create a mixed sentiment in the oil market, prompting investors to monitor developments and adjust their strategies accordingly closely.

The overall trend for oil in the market is leaning towards a neutral-bullish sentiment. However, the direction of oil prices hinges heavily on the updates and progress made in the ongoing debt ceiling negotiations. Investors are advised to closely monitor the updates surrounding the debt ceiling deal as they assess and navigate their trading strategies in this uncertain environment.

Resistance level: 73.32, 81.85

Support level: 65.57, 57.39
