    USD/JPY Fundamental Daily Forecast – Weakens after Trump Threatens China with Additional Tariffs

    The tone of the market is bearish because of Trump’s new tariff threat. The USD/JPY could plunge if China retaliates with a new threat of additional tariffs on U.S. goods. The price action in the U.S. stock market and Treasury markets is likely to dictate the movement in the Dollar/Yen.

    AUD/USD Forex Technical Analysis – June 19, 2018 Forecast

    Now that the AUD/USD has already made a lower-low to extend the downtrend, the direction of the Forex pair the rest of the session will be determined by trader reaction to Monday’s close at .7422. Assume the downtrend will continue, given the bearish fundamentals, but be prepared for a closing price reversal bottom especially if the U.S. and China reach a trade agreement.

    AUD/USD and NZD/USD Fundamental Daily Forecast – RBA Minutes Should Reaffirm Divergence From Fed Policy

    Lingering concerns over the US-China trade dispute could continue to pressure the AUD/USD and NZD/USD or at the least limit their upside potential if there is a short-covering rally. The fact that both Forex pairs haven’t “crashed” suggests that investors feel that some solution will be reached as long as both parties are still at the negotiation table.

    Gold Price Prediction – Gold Consolidates After Breaking Down as Momentum Turns Negative

    Gold prices moved lower and are consolidating on Monday after tumbling on Friday as the dollar gained traction. The ECB and the Federal Reserve met last week and are on diverging paths as the Fed continues to raise rates and normalize. Higher U.S. interest rates are making the dollar more attractive and gold prices more expensive in other currencies.  As long as the dollar continues to make headway, gold prices will have a difficult time gaining ground.  The ECB on the other hand, kept rates unchanged but discussed the phasing out of their quantitative easing.  QE will be reduced by half in September and will phase out completely as of December 2018.  Just because QE will be terminated does not mean that the ECB will begin to increase interest rates.
