Market News Summary

The Bank of England is contemplating significant changes to its deposit guarantee scheme, which may involve increasing the amount of coverage provided to companies. According to sources, regulators are worried that the current cap of £85,000 only covers two-thirds of deposits, and the insufficient pre-funding level results in customers having to wait for at least a week before accessing their funds.

Christine Lagarde, the President of the European Central Bank, has ruled out the possibility of the US defaulting on its debt. She warned that such an event would cause severe global consequences.

The US public debt has now hit the $31.4 trillion ceiling, which has led to a standoff between the Republicans, who control the House of Representatives, and the Democrats, led by President Joe Biden.

To manage cash flow and prevent default until at least June 5th, the US Treasury has initiated extraordinary measures.

Dollar index (USDX)

US Dollar Index chart on 17 April 2023

The value of the dollar inched up against major currencies while Treasury bond yields showed a slight fluctuation, with the 2-year government debt’s yield, which is sensitive to interest rates, remaining at approximately 4.1% on Monday.

Last week, these yields increased due to lower-than-anticipated core retail sales figures for March and remarks from Federal Reserve officials.

As worries about the banking industry ease and inflationary pressure persists in the United States, traders are now speculating on a minimum of one interest rate hike this year.

Spot Gold (XAUUSD)

Spot Gold chart on 17 April 2023

On Friday, April 14th, gold prices closed lower, resulting in weekly losses, just one day after achieving the second-highest settlement price ever.

Gold futures fell by approximately 1.9%, or $39.5, to $2,015.8 per ounce upon settlement, while the most active contract prices experienced a 0.5% drop throughout the week.

The decrease in gold prices happened simultaneously with a surge in the value of the dollar following statements from a Federal Reserve official, indicating the necessity to raise interest rates once more.

Dow Jones Index (DJ30ft – US30)

DOW JONES Index chart on 17 April 2023

On Friday’s trading session, US stock indices closed with collective declines, pressured by economic data that supported another interest rate hike by the US Federal Reserve. Despite this, these indices maintained weekly gains thanks to a strong rally in Thursday’s session.

Industrial production and energy utilization data came in stronger than expected, providing the Fed with the justification to continue its interest rate hike policy in May and possibly in June.

The Dow Jones index fell by 0.4%, equivalent to around 143 points, during Friday’s session, closing at 33,886 points.

Most major sectors declined, except for the financial sector, which surged by about 4.6%, supported by better-than-expected results from major banks.

Over the course of the week, the Dow Jones recorded weekly gains of 1.2%, rising for the fourth consecutive week and achieving the highest weekly close since the beginning of February 2023.

US Crude (USOUSD)

US Crude chart on 17 April 2023

After four consecutive weeks of increase, oil prices have now stabilized, as indications of a supply shortage in the market continue to emerge. The International Energy Agency has issued a warning that prices may rise even further in the future.

The futures for West Texas Intermediate traded above $82 per barrel, having recorded their longest weekly gains since June.

 On Friday, the International Energy Agency stated that OPEC+’s sudden production cut will cause the market to become even tighter than previously anticipated, which will inevitably lead to further price increases, putting additional financial burden on consumers.
