DAILY MARKET REPORT

US Dollar hits a fresh 16-month high ahead of one of the most awaited economic events of the week, Minutes from the Federal Reserve's November meeting and US GDP figures.

EQUITIES

Wall Street ended higher on Tuesday boosted by the rebound in crude oil and better-than-expected economic data. The upside momentum is also supported by the better-than-expected US manufacturing PMI data. The US Manufacturing PMI increased by 59.1 in November from a 10-month low of 58.4 in October.

OIL

Crude oil prices holding the previous session gains. Oil prices bounced on Tuesday after the US announced a 50 million barrels release of oil from the Strategic Petroleum Reserves of which 32 million barrels will be exchanged over the next several months

CURRENCIES

In the currency market, the Euro remained under pressure against the major currency pairs following the release of weaker-than-expected German IFO business climate data. The British pound slightly recovered from the previous session losses while the currency pair struggled to break above 1.3400 as the investors widely expect that the BOE will hike interest rates during the next monthly meeting.

GOLD

Gold price stays below the $1800 psychological level ahead of US FOMC minutes. Overall, momentum remains bearish as the US dollar hovers near its highest in 16 months.

Economic Outlook

On the data front, the Reserve Bank of Australia increased the official cash rate by 0.25 per cent to 0.75 per cent. RBNZ anticipate raising 75 basis points in the next three meetings to leave the cash rate (OCR) at 1.5 per cent by June 2022.

"Further removal of monetary policy stimulus is expected over time given the medium-term outlook for inflation and employment" – RBNZ policy committee said.

Technical Outlook

EURUSD: Considering the recently strong bearish momentum, the currency pair is trading near the critical demand zone on the weekly time frame. So, there may be the chance the pair can find strong buyers below this year's low 1.1220.
