The euro took a hit amid another hike in natural gas prices, this time on news of new moves by Russia to restrict supplies to Europe. Accordingly, the price of the EUR/USD currency pair fell to the lowest support level of 1.0349 for the most popular currency pair in the forex market, and closed last week's trading, stable around the 1.0407 level, in light of the continuation of the downward trend.
The US dollar index (DXY) is a weighted currency index which is generally used as a benchmark for US dollar performance. DXY continues its upward trend after last week’s US inflation data for April - which printed lower than the March print – surprised to the upside. Higher inflation data underpins the value of the greenback at a time when the Fed is fully motivated to raise the Fed funds rate. Current market expectations see the Fed hiking rates a further 190 basis points before the end of the year.
During last week's trading, the price of the USD/JPY currency pair was exposed to profit-taking operations. It moved towards the support level 127.52 after the currency pair recorded its highest level in 20 years. As mentioned with the selling operations, forex investors may think of buying the currency pair as it returned to move towards the resistance level 129.45. The pair is stable near it at the beginning of this week's trading. The US dollar is still supported by strong expectations of the path of raising US interest rates strongly during 2022.
The sharp pessimistic view on the part of the Bank of England, the fears of the impact of the Russian gas cut on Britain, and an expected path for a strong tightening of the US Federal Reserve’s policy, increased the selling of the GBP/USD currency pair to the 1.2155 support level.
Gold futures fell during last week's trading, officially erasing all their gains in 2022. The price of the yellow metal came under heavy pressure this month, supported by the Fed's tightening efforts, the strength of the US dollar, and rising Treasury yields. For now, the bull market appears to be over, even if inflation has risen significantly. The price of gold fell to the support level of $ 1799 for an ounce, the lowest price of the yellow metal in three months. We ended the week's trading around the level of $ 1811 an ounce.
