US Treasury Yields soared, causing JPY’s downslide. Affects JPY
Global investors see less threat to global economic stability from the crisis of China’s Evergrande. Affects gold
Boeing shared its prognosis for global travel to be back to pre-pandemic levels in about two years from now. Affects Boeing
Evergrande’s colossal debt has been a threat not only to the Chinese economy but to global economic stability too. This crisis seems to be under the control of the Chinese regulator now, and global investors are out of panic mode. Hence, gold is dropping.
Gold gave up all its September gains. The current downtrend suggests it will continue and possibly touch the support level of $1,720. If this level is crossed, $1,700 will likely follow.
Fears of the global oil market’s instability are once again driving Brent up. If bulls keep pressing, $80 may be eclipsed soon. Beware of that level retesting, which might occur after.
As JPY is losing strength, USD/JPY is growing, and the nearest target is the resistance level of 111.7.
