The demand for US currency significantly dropped on Wednesday night and Thursday during the day. Due to this, the euro/dollar and pound/dollar instruments saw price increases of about 200 and 300 basis points, respectively. In yesterday's reviews, I already conducted a thorough analysis of the news landscape of these days. I concluded that economic data could not have a significant enough impact on market sentiment to cause the US dollar to depreciate significantly against the euro and the pound. The market did not react that way because the news background was not that bad for the dollar. The only thing that has anything to do with the US dollar's decline is Jerome Powell's speech on Wednesday night.
Other analysts have written quite a bit about this subject, and most concur that Powell's speech didn't offer anything novel or demoralizing. The Fed President noted that economic growth is below the anticipated trajectory, inflation is still very high, and a slowdown in the rate increase could occur as early as December. However, he added that the interest rate might rise for longer than the Fed had anticipated in September. What qualifies as the "hawkish" element? Why did the market respond to the "dovish" statements rather than him? Other FOMC members have expressed this "dovish" rhetoric numerous, but the market did not retaliate as violently.
I don't think explaining how the market reacted to the speech is worthwhile because it initially "aimed" at buying both instruments. Just look at how the US session began on Thursday and how the US dollar immediately began to decline (and both instruments up). Although Powell's speech was given days earlier, the American statistics at the start of the session had yet to be made public. However, the market also identified factors that reduced demand for the dollar. Thus, I conclude that, rather than Powell's speech being full of "dovish" theses, the market decided that the demand for the dollar was declining. It didn't abound, though.
What comes next? The wave e peak on the euro currency has been broken once more, and the wave marking may get even more complicated. The British pound believes that everything is the same. Another significant Nonfarm Payrolls report will be released in the USA today, which is expected to send the market into a frenzy. But I think the market won't care what this report is worth. Regardless of how compelling the report is, the value of the US dollar will decline if they decide to keep selling it. Perhaps I need to be more accurate and treat the market fairly. I would be okay if the situation changed the next day completely. But if the market interprets the news background in its convenient manner, what use is it to analyze it at all?
I conclude that the upward trend section's construction is complete and has increased complexity to five waves. As a result, I suggest making sales with targets close to the estimated 0.9994 level, or 323.6% Fibonacci. The trend's upward portion could become more complicated and take on a longer form, and the likelihood of this happening is increasing daily.
The construction of a new downward trend segment is predicated on the wave pattern of the pound/dollar instrument. I cannot suggest purchasing the instrument immediately because the wave marking already permits the development of a downward trend section. With targets around the 1.1707 mark, or 161.8% Fibonacci, sales are now more accurate. The wave e, however, can evolve into an even longer form.
