US record, OPEC decision, Australian dollar under threat

FX:USOIL   CFDs on Crude Oil (WTI)
On Monday, the markets continued to try to incorporate with the prices the G20 summit results. What Trump declared to be the victory in a trade war but is actually not. So, yesterday we observed the appearance of inefficiencies in financial markets that could be used to make money. In particular, we are talking about the gold falls into the bottoms of 1380-s, which can and should be used for asset purchases and earnings , as well as the growth of the Australian dollar above 0.70, which should be used to sell AUDUSD .

About the Australian dollar . Today, the Reserve Bank of Australia cut the rate for the second time in a row (this time from 1.25% to 1%). We believe that this is quite a serious signal to sell AUDUSD . Ideal prices for opening short sales are in the area of 0.7000-0.7020. In this case, stops can be placed above 0.7040, and profits - in the area of 0.6870.

Yesterday could be decisive for the dynamics of oil over the next few months. But the outcome of the OPEC meeting was too obvious. The cartel decided to extend the OPEC + No. 2 contract for 9 months until March 2020. Current progress in a trade war is a positive sign for oil . Well, all points are in favor of asset purchases. However, there might be a trap. Given the current consensus, oil growth will need something more than just an extension. For example, an increase in the volume of reductions or some additional conditions that narrow the supply on the oil market. But these conditions remained unchanged. In addition, a potential uncertainty factor is a participation in deal countries outside the cartel. Today, Russia and other countries must agree on their decision and position. At best, they will agree with the OPEC deal, which is already taken into account in the price, at worst they can announce their particular position, which can be an unpleasant surprise for buyers.

Total, while oil is below $ 60 (WTI brand), we recommend selling it. We put small stops in this case (above $ 60.40), but profits can be set fairly solid, up to the bottom $ 50.

Meanwhile, the United States recorded a new record: 121 months of continuous economic growth. This is a record in the entire history since 1854. Given the potential easing of monetary policy by the Fed, the United States has good chances to extend this series, as evidenced by yesterday's data on US business activity. The ISM index in the non-production sector in June was 51.7 points (forecast: 51.0), which testifies in favor of the growth of economic activity in the country.

What cannot be said about the Eurozone, where the PMI index in the manufacturing sector in June was significantly lower than 50 (47.6, with the forecast of 47.8) and was the lowest since 2013. Unpleasantly surprised China, whose PMI in the manufacturing sector was also below 50 (49.4).

Our trading preferences for today are as follows: we will continue to look for convenient sales opportunities for the dollar and the Russian ruble . In addition, we will continue to sell AUDUSD . We are selling oil today, but we are closely following the outcome of the OPEC meeting. As for gold , we will continue to work without obvious preferences, selling from overbought and buying from oversold.
