Market Analysis:AUDUSD

The RBA thinks it is time to raise the interest rate as the inflation was high and the unemployment rate decreased

The RBA released hawkish statements

The minutes of the RBA meeting showed more timely evidence that labor costs are rising amid a tight labor market and are likely to recover further in the period ahead. The Australian economy is being supported by household and business balance sheets. While the rise in inflation largely reflected global factors, members noted that strong domestic demand and capacity constraints were working.

Members agreed that the preferred option would be to raise rates by 25 basis points. The committee is considering whether previously set conditions for raising the cash rate are met. Members observed that if Australia’s inflationary psychology shifted in a lasting way, it would be harder to bring inflation back to target. Actions of this magnitude will help show that the committee is returning to normal operating procedures.

Members unanimously agreed that further interest rate hikes may be needed to ensure Australia’s inflation returns to target over time. There will be an opportunity to reassess the rate setting in a relatively short period of time. Household spending will be closely monitored as interest rates rise. The rate hike conditions set by the committee have been met.

The increase in Australian inflation hit a record high

The RBA raised its benchmark interest rate by 25 basis points to 0.35% in early May. It is the first time the RBA has raised interest rates since 2010. The analysis pointed out that the rate hike came faster and larger than the market expected, aiming to curb rising inflation.

According to the latest data released by the Australian Bureau of Statistics, the Australian Consumer Price Index (CPI) rose by 5.1% year-on-year in the first quarter of this year, the highest since 2001. The Australian Bureau of Statistics said the increase in the CPI was mainly driven by price increases in areas such as motor fuel, housing and education. Food prices also rose significantly, with beef and vegetables rising the most.

Australian dwelling prices increased by 24% in 2021, the largest annual increase since the Residential Price Index began to be published in the third quarter of 2003. Dwelling prices in Hobart, the capital of Tasmania, and in Brisbane, the capital of Queensland, rose by as much as 29.8% and 27.8% respectively. Rents have also risen sharply in many places. Cassandra Goldie, chief executive of the Australian Council of Social Services, said: “about 2.4 million people earn less than $70 a day. Rising rents have hit low- and middle-income groups hard.”.

RBA Governor Philip Lowe points out that in the past, prices and wages have usually been in a spiral upward relationship, but this trend has weakened significantly since the outbreak of the epidemic. The data released by the Australian Bureau of Statistics in February this year showed CPI and daily necessities would rise by 3.5% and 7% respectively in 2021, while wages would only rise by an average of 2.3%. Australian economist Chris Murphy said: “overall inflation in Australia will remain high this year and is expected to hit around 6% in the fourth quarter.”.

Technically speaking, the decline will narrow, and focus on whether AUDUSD will rebound

On the chart of the week, AUDUSD narrowed its decline. It is expected to continue rebounding. It will continue rebounding with potential resistance at 0.7110 if it is steady above 0.6820.

On the other hand, it will fall with potential support art 0.6680 if it breaks below 0.6820, and it will continue dipping with potential support at 0.6520 if it breaks below 0.6680.

Key support: 0.6520, 0.6680, 0.6820
Key resistance: 0.7110, 0.7260, 0.7450

In summary, AUDUSD is likely to rebound further with key resistance at 0.7110 and potential support at 0.6820. It will rise further if it breaks above 0.7110, while it will decline with potential support at 0.6680 if it breaks below 0.6820.

Market Analysis:USDX

The increase in the US dollar was capped, and investors should focus on whether the US dollar will reverse

US April Retail Sales were Better than Expected

In the New York session on 17th May, the United States announced April retail sales, which is better than expected.

US Retail Sales, m/m (April) increased from 0.5% to 0.9% Vs. 0.8%(forecast). US Retail Sales, y/y (April) increased from 6.9% to 8.19. US Core Retail Sales, m/m (April) decreased from 1.1% to 0.6% Vs. 0.3%(forecast). US Retail Sales, m/m (April) hit 0.9%, the highest since January 2022.

The US Fed has increased the interest rate by 75 basis points at two meetings to fight against the inflation. Powell said at May 15th Press Conference that it was difficult to cut the inflation amid the economic growth.

The US economy shrank by 1.4% unexpectedly in the first quarter, lower than the forecast of 1.1%. The market accepts the view that trade deficit leads to economic contraction. However, the US Fed will face huge pressure to continue raising the interest rate if the economic recession occurred in the second quarter.

The expectation that the US Fed will continue raising the interest rate rises

Andrew Hunter, a senior economist from Capital Economics said that the increase bin US April core inflation would make it possible for the US Fed to continue raising the interest rate by 50 basis points. However, Andrew added that the US Fed may slow the tightening of monetary policies in later this year as the commodity shortage eased, the wage growth slowed down and the inflation fell.

Another analysis pointed out that the US Fed’s current round of monetary policy tightening is relatively backward. The related interest rate hike should have been started in the second half of last year, but it was postponed until March this year. There are another five interest rate meetings in the future. Judging from the current inflation data, the US Fed is expected to raise interest rates more than expected. The US federal benchmark interest rate is between 0.75% and 1% now, and it is expected to reach around 2% this year.

Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell said after the May meeting that the US Fed may raise interest rates by 50 basis points at each of the next two meetings.

Analysts believe that the US Fed is likely to maintain a more aggressive rate hike at its June interest rate meeting.

Market Analysis:USOIL

The optimistic outlook for crude oil demand supported oil price

USOIL price hit a record high

US gasoline futures hit a record high, and US crude oil inventories decreased for the 6th straight week last week, boosting USOIL to the highest since April 2020. US crude oil futures closed at the negative area in April 2020.

“US gasoline inventories haven’t increased since March,” said Robert Yawger, executive director of Mizuho Energy Futures, noting that gasoline demand will climb as the US enters the driving season from the Memorial Day.

Gasoline and diesel prices at the US gas stations rose to record highs of $4.43 a gallon and $5.56 a gallon, respectively, on Friday, the Automobile Club AAA said.

April crude oil output plummeted in April

Russian crude oil production fell significantly in April. From 1st April to 6th April, Russia’s average oil production hit 1.436 million tons per day, according to data from Russia’s Comprehensive Survey of Fuels and Energy (CDU-TEK). April crude oil production reached around 10.52 million barrels, decreasing by 4.5% from March. The IEA (International Energy Agency) expects Russia to lose 1.6 million barrels per day of oil production capacity in May and lose 2 million barrels per day of oil production capacity in June.

The European Union said that it was considering delaying the implementation of the ban on Russian oil, which has eased the market’s concerns about the shortage of crude oil supply. However, if oil demand maintains seasonal growth in the later period and the EU imposes an embargo on Russian oil, the supply and demand structure will tighten in the crude oil market, raising oil price. Oil price is expected to be at high levels.
