FTSE analysis: Disparity between UK and European stocks grows larger

If USD/CNH is the canary in the coalmine, USD/JPY might be in trouble
A bearish reversal pattern has formed on USD/CNH which implies a move down to 7.10. And if the yuan continues to strengthen, it could see the yen follow and scupper USD/JPY attempt at breaking 152.
USD/JPY forecast: 151 seems plausible, 152 may be a stretch
USD/JPY is clinging to 150 despite the weaker US dollar on Tuesday, as there seems little reason for traders to bid the yen. And unless we receive a compelling reason to buy then yen via a surprisingly hawkish BOJ or broad risk-off environment, it becomes difficult to construct an overly bearish case for USD/JPY whilst the Fed remain quiet about rate cuts.
Gold rises on renewed Fed-cut bets, crude oil falters at resistance

Euro Price Outlook: EUR/USD Re-Tests 200-DMA at Two-Week-High
EUR/USD bears were stifled at fresh three-month lows last week, and now the pair has pulled back for a re-test of its 200-day moving average.
Gold analysis: Short-term outlook remains murky despite bounce
Given that the odds of rate cuts have been trimmed by hotter inflation data last week, this is increasing the opportunity cost of holding gold over bonds. Therefore, the short-term gains could evaporate soon. Gold is more likely to hit new records closer to time of rate cuts, though.
DAX outlook: German index aims to reach new highs
What has driven the German index to record highs and can the rally persist? US investors are back, with Nvidia earnings coming into focus this week. DAX technical analysis shows index is testing key support.
USD forecast: Positioning hints at headwinds for USD, 2-year yield
Short bets against the US 2-year yield continue to diminish yet remain at a sentiment extreme. And as the yield flatlined above 5% in 2023 despite aggressive short positioning, it suggests its yield may struggle to retake 5% this time around. And that could prove to be a headwind for the USD.
NZD, AUD take the lead in quiet trade but USD may not be done yet
NZD/USD and AUD/USD were the strongest pairs on Monday during quiet trade, but the USD shows the potential to bounce before a larger move lower, which could eventually allow AUD/USD to reach for 66c.
GBP/USD drifts lower amid a lack of data
GBP/USD struggles around 1.26, holding onto last week's losses. The pair could continue to drift lower amid a quiet UK economic calendar. This week, US FOMC minutes and UK services PMI data will be in focus.
USD/CAD analysis: Currency Pair of the Week – February 19, 2024
The USD/CAD will be among the busier of major currency pairs in what will likely be relatively quieter week, at least in so far as macro data is concerned. Given the closure of US markets for Presidents' Day and the majority of major data releases already published in preceding weeks, the week ahead will present few noteworthy macroeconomic highlights, aside from a select few.
