Eye On U.S. GDP Today

Market Summary

The U.S. equity markets saw a halt in their two-day rally, primarily pulled down by disappointing earnings from Meta Platforms. As a result, both the Nasdaq and S&P 500 were left nearly unchanged, while the Dow Jones Industrial Average closed lower. Market focus is now turning to Alphabet and Microsoft, whose earnings reports are due later today and are anticipated to influence market movements significantly.

On the currency front, the dollar experienced a slight recovery from just below the $106 mark. Investors are now keenly awaiting today’s U.S. GDP data, which is expected to provide further insights into the dollar’s trajectory. In Japan, the yen continues to struggle, breaking past the significant psychological resistance level of 155 against the dollar. Japanese officials have reiterated their readiness to take necessary measures to address the rapid depreciation of the yen, increasing the risk of potential market intervention.

In commodities, gold prices moved sideways, stabilising after a slight rebound in the previous session after the dollar gained in strength. Meanwhile, oil prices were buoyed by a notable decline in U.S. crude stockpiles, with WTI crude trading above the $83 mark.

Market Movements

dollar index dxy price chart 25 April 2024


Despite upbeat Durable Goods Orders data, the Dollar Index only experienced bullish momentum slightly as investors awaited key economic indicators, including US GDP and Initial Jobless Claims reports. Anticipation surrounding these releases kept market participants on edge, with economists forecasting a potential decline in GDP from 3.4% to 2.5%. Continued monitoring of economic data performance is advised for traders seeking further trading signals.

The Dollar Index is trading flat while currently testing the support level. MACD has illustrated diminishing bearish momentum, while RSI is at 42, suggesting the index might have experienced technical correction since the RSI rebounded sharply from oversold territory. 

Resistance level: 106.35, 107.05

Support level: 105.80, 105.25

XAU/USD gold price chart 25 April 2024


Gold prices saw a slight retreat following better-than-expected Core Durable Goods Orders from the US, which bolstered dollar demand and dampened the appeal for dollar-denominated gold. Additionally, easing tensions in the Middle East contributed to a shift in investor sentiment towards riskier assets, including the US equity market. Attention remains focused on upcoming economic releases, such as US GDP, Initial Jobless Claims, and Core PCE Price Index, for potential market-moving insights.

Gold prices are trading lower following the prior retracement from the resistance level. MACD has illustrated increasing bearish momentum, while RSI is at 47, suggesting the commodity might extend its losses in short-term since the RSI stays below the midline. 

Resistance level: 2330.00, 2360.00

Support level: 2300.00, 2270.00

GBP/USD price chart 25 April 2024


The GBP/USD pair has settled within its previous price consolidation range, fluctuating between 1.2480 and 1.2430, following a technical rebound from its recent low. Sterling’s resilience stemmed from upbeat PMI readings released earlier in the week. However, the pair is likely to be influenced by the upcoming U.S. GDP data scheduled for release later today.

The GBP/USD pair traded sideways in the past session, awaiting a catalyst to pick a direction. However, the RSI has rebounded and is close to the overbought zone, while the MACD has broken above the zero line, suggesting the pair is currently trading with bullish momentum. 

Resistance level: 1.2540, 1.2660

Support level: 1.2370, 1.2260

EUR/USD price chart 25 April 2024


The EUR/USD pair remained relatively subdued following its recent rally, trading within a narrow range. Against the backdrop of speculation regarding an early rate cut by the ECB due to the euro’s CPI nearing its targeted inflation rate, market participants are closely monitoring today’s U.S. GDP data to assess the pair’s potential trajectory.

The pair is currently facing a strong resistance level at 1.0710. A break above this level suggests a solid bullish signal for the pair. The MACD is currently hovering above the zero line, while the RSI is on the brink of getting into the overbought zone, suggesting the bullish momentum remains strong. 

Resistance level: 1.0775, 1.0866

Support level: 1.0630, 1.0560

USD/CHF price chart 25 April 2024


The USD/CHF pair has been approaching its significant resistance level at 0.9145. The Swiss National Bank (SNB) was among the first major central banks to commence a rate-cutting cycle, a move that has weighed on the Swiss Franc. Concurrently, the better-than-expected performance of the U.S. economy has bolstered the dollar, contributing to the bullish momentum in the pair.

The USD/CHF is poised at its highest level since last October. A break above this level will be a solid bullish signal for the pair. The RSI has been gaining, while the MACD shows signs of rebounding from above the zero line, suggesting that the bullish momentum remains strong. 

Resistance level: 0.9170, 0.9195

Support level: 0.9120, 0.9090 

USD/JPY price chart 25 April 2024


The Japanese yen slumped to its weakest levels against the US dollar since 1990, driven by a string of positive US economic data releases. The widening yield differential between Japan and the US, fueled by higher US Treasury yields, further pressured the yen. While Japanese authorities have indicated vigilance regarding currency movements and potential interventions, lack of concrete actions disappointed yen traders, who remain alert to any signs of intervention.

USD/JPY is trading higher following the prior breakout above the previous resistance level. However, MACD has illustrated diminishing bullish momentum, while RSI is at 80, suggesting the pair might enter overbought territory. 

Resistance level: 158.45, 160.00

Support level: 154.70, 151.70

crude oil price chart 25 April 2024


Oil prices settled slightly lower amidst cooling tensions in the Middle East, reducing concerns of supply disruptions. Despite a significant decline in US crude inventories, exceeding market expectations, weaker gasoline demand weighed on oil prices. The Energy Information Administration’s report revealed a sharp drop of 6.4 million barrels in US oil inventories, yet the reduction failed to offset the impact of decreased gasoline demand, highlighting ongoing market challenges.

Oil prices are trading lower following the prior retracement from the resistance level. MACD has illustrated diminishing bullish momentum, while RSI is at 48, suggesting the commodity might extend its losses since the RSI stays below the midline.

Resistance level: 83.40, 84.65

Support level: 80.45, 78.00
