Broad market price movement:

Dollar Index, Gold, S&P 500, Oil, 10-Year US Yields, Bitcoin Overlay Chart by TradingView

Major financial assets traded mixed, with spot gold extending losses in the Asian session as traders expected easing concerns in the Middle East and increased demand for the US dollar. Bitcoin (BTC/USD) has reversed some of its gains from the previous day, likely due to a bit of profit-taking following the “Bitcoin Halving” event over the weekend.

Price action intensified in the European session thanks to Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI) releases from the Eurozone and the UK which inspired little risk-on. Then, unexpectedly weak US PMI reports during the US session revived calls for a Fed rate cut in June and markets reacted accordingly.

Crude oil recovered its losses during the day, spot gold almost ended the day in the green, and US bond yields fell from 4.65% to the 4.57% area before settling at 4.60%. US stock indices, such as the S&P 500, also rode the “Fed rate cut” train and were boosted by optimism over this week's earnings report releases.

The US dollar traded in tight ranges for most of the day before surprisingly weak manufacturing and services PMI reports during the US session revived Fed rate cut bets.

It did not help the safe haven that PMI reports from Australia and the euro zone surprised to the upside while sterling was supported by Bank of England chief economist Hugh Bell who supports a dovish approach to interest rate cuts.

The dollar ended the day lower across the board, seeing its biggest losses against the British pound, the Australian dollar, and the euro, while losing only marginally against other safe-haven currencies such as the Japanese yen and the Swiss franc.

Potential catalysts coming on the economic calendar:

  • Bundesbank President Joachim Nagel will deliver a speech at 7:00 AM GMT
  • Credit Suisse economic forecasts at 8:00 AM GMT
  • IfO Business Climate in Germany at 8:00 AM GMT
  • BoE Industrial Demand Forecast for the UK at 10:00 AM GMT
  • Retail sales in Canada at 12:30 PM GMT
  • US Core Durable Goods Orders at 12:30 PM GMT
  • EIA crude oil inventories at 2:30pm GMT

As more traders look for clues to a possible Fed rate cut, you can bet they will be eyeing the core durable goods reports in the US. EIA crude oil inventory data may also trigger fluctuations in crude oil benchmarks, so make sure you stick to the tube during releases!
