Aussie and Kiwi decrease vs. greenback in late trade

On Thursday, the Australian and New Zealand dollars dived against their American counterpart, pulling back from peaks, reached earlier when the Fed announced a highly-anticipated rate lift.

The currency pair AUD/USD dived 0.21%, trading at 0.7694, off Wednesday’s two-and-a-half week peak of 0.7722.

On Wednesday, at the end of its two-day policy gathering, the Fed lifted interest rates by 25 basis points to 1.00% from 0.75%, exactly as expected.

The US dollar dived broadly following the decision, as the major bank’s stance was considered to be less hawkish than expected, given projections of three rate lifts this year and not four as some analysts had hoped for.

The currency pair NZD/USD dived 0.55%, trading at 0.7008, having reached a more than one-week high of 0.7050 during last session.

Earlier on Thursday, Statistics New Zealand posted that the country’s GDP added 0.4% during the fourth quarter of last year, thus confounding expectations for a surge of 0.7%.

Crude prices decline on rise in American drilling

On Monday, crude sagged, as surging American drilling activity as well as steady supplies from OPEC countries notwithstanding touted output cuts pressured already-bloated markets.

Brent crude futures were dropped 0.56%, trading at $51.47 per barrel.

American West Texas Intermediate crude futures tumbled 0.78%, hitting $48.40 a barrel.

Market participants told that crude prices came under pressure from ascending American drilling as well as ongoing high supplies by the OPEC notwithstanding its pledge to reduce output by nearly 1.8 million barrels per day together with some other crude producers, such as Russia.

American drillers added 14 oil rigs by March 17, thus bringing the total count up to 631, which is the most impressive outcome since September 2015, as  energy services firm Baker Hughes Inc informed on Friday.

Therefore, US crude output has ascended to over 9.1 million bpd from 8.5 million bpd in June the previous year.

European stocks dive

On Monday, European stock markets sank after the open, as the greenback remained on the back foot and crude prices kept moving south, applying pressure on sentiment.

Market participants also mulled headlines out of the G20 finance ministers gathering in Germany at the weekend in order to assess the overlal potential impact that trade barriers could have on global surge.

The EURO STOXX 50 declined 0.1%, France’s CAC 40 lost 0.3%, Germany’s DAX 30 went down 0.3%. Additionally, the FTSE100 edged down 0.2% in London.

Earlier, in Asia, financial markets concluded mixed, with the Shanghai Composite in China ending up about +0.4%, while Japan's Nikkei remained unavailable for a public holiday.

The greenback extended its losses to a fourth trading session, staying on track for its longest losing streak since early November in wake of the Fed’s dovish guidance on the path of rate lifts in 2017.

As for early movers, Deutsche Bank stocks slid approximately 2% in Frankfurt after the German lender reported that it was issuing 687.5 million new stocks in order to raise $8.6 billion.

Crude prices dive on bloated American crude storage

On Wednesday, crude prices sagged, as surging crude stocks in America underscored an ongoing global fuel supply overhang notwithstanding an OPEC-led effort to reduce output.

Prices for front-month Brent crude futures reached $50.79 per barrel, sliding 0.3% from their previous close.

American West Texas Intermediate crude futures slid 0.4%, hitting $48.08.

American crude inventories surged by 4.5 million barrels by March 17 growing to 533.6 million barrels, as the American Petroleum Institute told late on Tuesday.

The bloated storage comes as American crude output has inched up over 8% since mid-2016 to more than 9.1 million barrels per day, values comparable to late 2014, when the crude market dip started.

Surging output in America and elsewhere as well as bloated inventories, are actually undermining efforts led by the OPEC to reduce output and stimulate prices.

Notwithstanding cuts, experts warned of renewed or ongoing oversupply in the nearer future as American shale producers will ramp up once OPEC get back to full capacity.

[Image: 23-3-2017-EUR-H4.png]

The price is consolidating under a resistance at 1.0828. Therefore, the market is likely going to achieve the next resistance at 1.0850 in the short term. If a pullback from this level happens, there’ll be an opportunity to have a bearish correction towards a support at 1.0797 – 1.0774.

We’ve got a consolidation, which is taking place between the 34 Moving Average and the nearest resistance at 1.0828. Also, we’ve got a “Thorn” and “V-Bottom” patterns, so bulls are likely going to reach a resistance at 1.0850 during the day. Considering a pullback from this level, we should keep an eye on the closest support at 1.0774 as a possible bearish target.
