Rates outlook 2023: Belt up, we’re going down

Bond market returns for 2022 have been horrific, right along the credit curve. For 2023, returns will be helped by a higher starting running yield, and subsequent falls in market rates. 

USD rates: Get ready for big falls in rates

The year ahead will mostly feature falling market rates, as the Fed peaks out and the market anticipates future rate cuts. The curve should dis-invert through the year, and ultimately will steepen out from the front end.

XAU/USD pair fades against other Gold pairs

Who doesn’t love trading gold? It’s so far one of the most popular assets in the world, also, one of the most valued, with over $12 trillion capitalization. But what happens when you take XAUUSD and put away the USD part?

Gold could see a bumpy road to recovery toward $1,930

Gold could see a bumpy road to recovery toward $1,930

Gold price (XAU/USD) is defending a minor bid, staying calm after two back-to-back days of intense volatility, steered by the major central banks’ policy decisions.

Key levels to watch

The Gold price is defending strong support aligned at $1,910, where the previous day’s low and the previous week’s low coincide.

A sustained move below the latter will fuel a sharp drop toward the $1,901 level, which is the convergence of the Fibonacci 38.2% one-month and the Bollinger Band four-hour Lower.

Should the downside extend Gold sellers will threaten the pivot point one-day S1 at $1,896.

Alternatively, the immediate resistance is seen at the Fibonacci 23.6% one-month at $1,920, above which the Fibonacci 23.6% one-day at $1,923 will be tested.

Apple Stock Earnings: iPhone slump sparks crash in AAPL price

Apple (AAPL) stock erased most of its Thursday gains afterhours as a plunge in iPhone sales led the company to miss Wall Street consensus for earnings and revenue in the fiscal first quarter that ended in December. Apple reported adjusted earnings per share (EPS) of $1.88, 7 cents short of consensus, and revenue of $117.15 billion – $4.5 billion below the average forecast. The iPhone, Wearables and Mac product segments were largely to blame, while iPads picked up some of the slack.
