Yen bulls return, EUR/USD benefits from soft dollar bets: COT report

When yen bulls increase their long exposure by 40% in a week, it is probably worth noting. Especially when large speculators had pushed net-short exposure to a 6-year high the week prior. Every turning point must start somewhere, and I continue to suspect this turning point already has.

Gold, AUD/USD: Softer US dollar and bond yields provide window for upside

A softer US dollar has helped AUD/USD and gold push towards key technical levels, suggesting the near-term price performance may determine their longer-term trajectory as we head towards 2024.

Gold struggling despite softer US dollar ahead of key long-bond auction

Gold faces an interesting start to the week with the US dollar falling to fresh two-month lows ahead of a key US Treasury auction, the latter providing an obvious catalyst that could dictate whether we see a retest of resistance above $2000.

EUR/USD, USD/JPY, Nasdaq, crude oil analysis: COT report – Nov 20, 2023

EUR/USD bears continued to trim shorts while large speculators added to longs. Whilst this might not be a bullish bet on the strength of Europe, it may well be a bet against the US dollar. And with the 2-year note holding above key support and shorts being trimmed, it hints at lower yields and a weaker US dollar.


Gold, USD/JPY: Batter up, bond auctions. It’s your turn to steal the spotlight

In a week when there’s little market moving macroeconomic events scheduled, fresh US Treasury auctions are likely to steal the spotlight. Yield sensitive assets such as gold and USD/JPY will be paying particularly close attention.

EUR, AUD, CAD, WTI analysis: Commitment of traders report (COT)

Large speculators increased their gross-long exposure to AUD/USD futures by 17.1% and trimmed shorts by -2.9% on the day of the RBA’s last hike. And this could be a significant development when you consider net-short exposure recently hit a record level of bearishness just six weeks ago, yet prices defied bears with a sustainable break beneath 63c.

It feels like we’ve reached the part of the economic cycle where the pain sets in. For the Nasdaq and crude oil, such a scenario points to the likelihood of divergent performance over the medium-term.
