Contributing his views on the recent developments in international markets, Ahmed Osama, Chief Analyst at Evest, said: “The US Federal Reserve announced its interest rate decision recently and left the benchmark interest rates at 5.5%, which is quite high. Chairman Jerome Powell mentioned that there would be no reduction in the US interest rate indicating that the tightening policy of the US Federal Reserve continues. This attracted major changes in market movements where the US dollar rose strongly and surpassed the dollar index. The US dollar traded at levels of 106, which negatively impacted gold trading, which is trading around $1,900.”
He further added: “Prevailing trends reveal that the USD will remain strong as compared to other currencies and gold unless some decline appears in the American labor markets. This can hint at a reduction of American interest rates soon. However, the markets expect the recently announced policy to continue which may lead to a rise in the value of gold."
The session also discussed the declining positions of the Euro and Pound Sterling in forex trading. The cessation of the decline in inflation led to a state of weakness, as inflation reached 5.2%. However, experts believe that the markets may see strong rises for the Euro this week as updated news on inflation rates is awaited. Expectations indicate a decline to 4.5%, which may positively improve the Euro’s position in international markets. As for Pound Sterling trading, the members of the Bank of England were divided and the majority wanted to stabilize the interest rate. This decision led to the continued weakening of the Pound Sterling despite the decline in inflation to 6.7%. After expectations indicated that it would rise and exceed the 7% levels again.
