The interest rate is critical in determining the economic outlook. In the U.S., the current federal funds rate is 1.75 percent. The Federal Reserve said it will raise rates to 2 percent in 2018, 2.5 percent in 2019 and 3 percent in 2020.

On the other hand, the economy of Canada performed slightly weaker than the bank expected in the first three months of 2018, the Central Bank of Canada said. The bank said weakness in the housing market plus trade uncertainties are weighing on the economy's prospects. However, it expects a boost from increased foreign trade, plus higher wages for Canadians.

The S&P 500 is into a large range (between 2500 and 2750) on the daily chart. According to our technical and fundamental analysis, the S&P 500 might rise in the long term, even if it might fall in the next 3 weeks. The increase in equity market volatility preceded the escalation of trade tensions. Following the list of the specific Chinese goods that would be hit with US tariffs and the list of US goods China would target, the S&P 500 posted a reversal pattern in the middle of last week. Some analysts are keen to point out that there are not another $100 bln of US goods imports that China can put a tariff on to match the escalation. There are many other areas in which China can demonstrate its annoyance. Many analysts jump to their selling US Treasuries or depreciating the yuan.
This index managed to finish last week above its 200-day moving average, but it was still around a percentage point lower than when European markets closed. The cuts in the corporate tax schedule are expected to generally lower the effective tax rate as well.

Golddaily page 001

The Gold price may fall in the medium term, according to the daily chart. The price of Gold is into a range at the moment. If the price drops at 76% Fibo ($1316), there is a high probability to fall below EMA 200 ($1298). A potential price target is $1250 in order to form a triangle. The RSI should be considered oversold below 28.
The Federal Reserve could hike rates three times this year as the repatriation tax could lead to internationally-held cash flooding back into the United States. Fed's response to a repatriation of funds could weigh over Gold and strengthen the US dollar.

There could be an increase in deposits within the US onshore banking system, which could boost the money supply and, therefore, induce increased lending. On the other hand, the Federal Reserve could tighten the screws at a faster rate. That could yield a drop in Gold.

The USD/CAD currency pair will continue to rise in the medium term, according to the weekly chart. The U.S. economic outlook is healthy according to the recent economic data.

This estimate takes into account Trump's economic policies. On the other hand, the NAFTA (North American Free Trade Agreement) renegotiation has Canada increasingly worried about bilateral trade under Trump. Pending U.S. tariffs could suddenly shut down billions of dollars of Canadian exports of products like paper and steel pipe.

The USD/CHF pair will rise above 0.9600 in the medium term, according to the weekly chart and market expectations based on the US economic data. Fed chair Jerome Powell makes his first major appearance Tuesday and Thursday when he testifies on the strength of the US economy before congressional committees.
