There was positive USD news this week with good job figures and another 75bp hike. We, however, didn’t see this reflecting in the charts and actually got a little USD selloff on Friday. I’m still of the opinion that we will get a USD pullback, but fundamentally you want to use this pullback to get in on USD trades at better prices. i.e. dollar strength. Powell also said on Wednesday that it was “Very premature to even think about pausing” referring to USD rate hikes. The DXY chart is also giving us a clues that we could get a pullback. Remember that a USD pullback will benefit many asset classes across the board.
In other news this week the GBP sold off across most pairs after the Bank of England’s largest rate hike in 33 years…the problem…. the BoE suggesting that rates won’t be hiked as high as previously thought. The BoE also mentioned that the U.K. is already in recession and that “and that significant headwinds remain”
THE GBP/NZD setup we were looking at: ‘Easily’ broke MULTIPLE reasons for the stop
Finally for this week we saw the RBA (Reserve bank of Australia) hike rates by 25 basis points. This of course doesn’t match up to the Fed and BoE’s 75bp increase. If the RBA continues with lower increases than its peers, we can start looking for long term AUD weakness.
Working to plan as per my last weekly analysis post. Broke 110 and pulled back to around 112. Big selloff on Friday (worst single-day drop in 7 years) and I’m now looking at it making a lower low. It could also easily struggle at the 55, so wait for closes.
Energy & Commodity Prices;
A nice bump on Friday due to a mini USD selloff. Still looking for a break above 1800 to change my bias
Also benefited from USD weakness on Friday. Testing the 200 again now. Break above 110 would change my bias.
Still in a range. Decent week for crypto in general though.

Red flag news:
Slow news week, but watch out for US inflation news on Thursday (GMT +2 below). Inflation figures are still VERY important in the current conditions and some pairs could be hypersensitive to this release. Also, not in the events noted below, but Tuesday is the US midterm elections. There could easily be some extra volatility around this.
