The pullback from April's high has seen USD/CAD find support around 1.36 but, with CAD traders remaining heavily net short, USD/CAD needs to rally to justify their bearish exposure.

AUD/USD, ASX 200: Watching for hawkish overtones in the RBA minutes

The performance of mainland Chinese stock indices and minutes from the RBA May monetary policy meeting should be on the radar for anyone trading AUD/USD or ASX 200 futures on Tuesday. With little top tier data or event risk to navigate, they loom as the most likely drivers of Australian financial markets.

Gold may have printed a record high on Monday, but with a gold basket hovering below resistance and the USD drifting higher, perhaps gold’s rally may at least pause for breath - if not retrace lower.

GBP/USD outlook: Currency Pair of the Week - May 20, 2024

Our GBP/USD outlook remains bullish, mainly due to our bearish US dollar forecast. On the GBP side of the equation, the Bank of England is getting closer to cutting interest rates, although the market seems to be looking past this. Domestically, the focus this week is on UK inflation data, which is expected to cool, potentially cementing expectations that the central bank will cut rates in June.

S&P500 Forecast: SPX set for a quiet start ahead of Fed minutes, NVDA earnings

US stocks point to a muted open after record highs last week, as investors look ahead to FOMC minutes and Nvidia earnings later in the week. Today's economic calendar is quiet; instead, the focus will be on several Fed speakers. Recent Fed officials have supported the view that rates need to stay high for longer to combat inflation.

Silver extremely overbought after bullish break, resistance zone looms on the horizon

Having taken out its 2021 high on Friday, silver has extended the bullish break on Monday, powering its way above $32 per ounce on the back of big gains in Chinese commodity futures. Given the speed of the rally, silver is fast approaching $35, a level it struggled to overcome in the early 2010s.

USD/JPY: Difficult for Fed to abandon higher for longer with no new data for guidance

With no new information for the Fed to consider this week, it’s difficult to see their narrative shifting from it still being far too soon to consider rate cuts. That points to upside risks for USD/JPY in the days ahead.
