Greenback Shines as Market Sentiment Shifts.

10-05-2022 06:51

“China lockdown and economic tension in Europe threaten the market.”

The financial market slumps into turmoil as equities slid further into oblivion while greenback touches a two-decade high. A series of hawkish signals delivered by the Federal Reserve switched investors’ perceptions, piloting their focus towards the greenback. Subsequently, China’s latest trade data for April came in with a single digit of 3.9%, its lowest since June 2020. The data raised concerns as negative impact from the lockdowns in Shanghai began to reflect on their economic momentum. Likewise, Europe’s proposal to sanction Russian oil import jeopardizes market sentiment even further as it raises economic distress on the region.

ZFX Analyst’s Comment

XAUUSD may extend its downside for the time being due to hawkish rhetoric from the Federal Reserve. Likewise, a divergence in between US economy and the rest of the world, especially China (due to Zero Covid Policy and lockdowns) may place further emphasis upon greenback.
