Welcome, traders, to this week’s FXGlobe.com market review. Last week served as a rollercoaster for many assets, setting the stage for potentially more volatility and opportunities in the coming days. Let’s dive right in.

Market Summary

The USD faced some resistance this week, unlike other major currencies. Meanwhile, precious metals like Gold and Silver enjoyed a revival. Even global indices, after a period of pullback, have found their bullish stride again. Cryptocurrencies were the exception, showing no notable gains.

A Look Back at Last Week’s Economic Data

The economic data from last week kept traders on their toes. U.S. Consumer Confidence landed at 106.1, defying expectations. The U.S. job market seemed stable, with Non-Farm Employment Change and Unemployment Rates mostly in line with projections. On the downside, the S&P/CS Composite-20 HPI year-over-year showed a decline, coming in at -1.2%.

In the Charts

This week brought a surprising setback for the US Dollar, until the Friday after NFP, and then resulted in a very strong finish for the Dollar against the major currencies. Metals & Crudes did very well, while cryptocurrencies struggled to maintain their footing. The most exciting news comes from the world of global indices, which, after a period of consolidation, are trending bullish again.
