Gold saw significant gains after the open even as the Dollar barely moved, showing a break from correlation and the inflation trade. As inflation starts to weigh off and the Fed begins to implement less hawkish policies in the US economy, we are seeing Gold become a safe haven asset amidst China’s covid uncertainty.
The Dollar has been the safe haven for the past year but as the Fed pauses on rate hikes, we have seen the Dollar fall and investors are turning back to the precious metal.
US Treasury Bond yields have been positive which is capping the bullish gains in the non-yielding metal and providing an assist for the Dollar to find support. We are seeing the Dollar hit a bottom now and begin to reverse to the upside as indicators are gaining strength.
Jobs data will be released this week as an indication of inflation in the US economy. Investors should keep an eye on Nonfarm Payrolls as this is one of the most effective signals in terms of growth in the economy.
EUR/USD is dependent on the Dollar and with the Dollar Index gaining strength, we are expecting to see bearish moves in the pair.
Bitcoin is consolidating and we are yet to see a break away from the sideways trading we have experienced in recent weeks.
In today’s DIFX Analytics, we’re going to look into the following assets:
Bitcoin is stuck below $17k
Bitcoin is consolidating and hasn’t breached the $16,400 – $17,000 range for quite some time.
RSI is bullish on the 4-hour chart but price action is hardly responding with small and patient gains to the upside.
The asset is trading at the 50-day and 100-day EMA on the 4-hour period but we can expect this asset to break to the upside and touch resistance at $17,000.
DXY is gaining strength
RSI on the daily chart for the DXY has begun to set higher lows showing bullish divergence for the index. The reversal seems to be upon us as the market reopens for 2023.
The Dollar saw slight gains since opening but price action is still in a neutral position. Jobs data will bring volatility toward the end of the week and we can expect the trend to pick a direction.
EUR/USD is weak
We are seeing RSI on the Daily chart become more and more bearish. Technicals have signaled a reversal in the pair as it began setting lower lows and lower highs.
Price action rejected the resistance at $1.07 and The first support is around $1.058. Analysts see the asset breaking the trend to the downside as it becomes increasingly bearish.

Volume has returned to the market and Gold is bullish.
