Forex: EUR/HUF in session highs after CPI

The Hungarian forint is depreciating against the single currency on Tuesday, after consumer prices in Hungary posted an annual advance of 2.8% in February, missing expectations at 3.1% and down from January’s +3.7%.

“Local risk premia appear to be rising… HGB yields rising, and CDS underperforming the regional peers. If these conditions persist, the markets should see a smaller chance of an NBH rate cut this month, in line with the guidance from the NBH”, assessed Marcin Budkiewicz, Analyst at TD Securities.

At the moment, the pair is up 0.51% at 303.48 with the next resistance at 307.65 (high Jun.1 2012) ahead of 313.48 (high Jan.13 2012) and then 316.10 (high Jan.9 2012).
On the flip side, a breakdown of 296.50 (MA14d) would expose the psychological level of 290.00 and finally 288.70 (low Feb.13).

Forex: NZD/USD trading negatively at 0.8235/38

Commodities Brief – Gold edges higher on Italian concerns, crude oil faces headwinds amidst rising stockpiles

Gold prices initially received a surge in strength Tuesday, as slightly less upbeat Chinese data and the Italian downgrade have shaped investor sentiment thus far. While slightly off its highs in the 1584 region, the yellow metal has managed to sustain the majority of its gains thus far, operating at USD $1582.50 per oz. in these moments. Afternoon action in the United States appears to fall short of a pricing catalyst, though anything short of nefarious that transpires could push the spot price higher near the vaunted 1600 resistance/uptrend barrier.
