By Arundhati Sarkar (Reuters) - Gold prices slipped on Wednesday from a nine-month peak hit in the previous session as the dollar steadied and investors squared positions ahead of U.S. fourth-quarter economic growth figures. Spot gold was down 0.6% to $1,925.75 per ounce at 1320 GMT, after hitting its highest since late April on Tuesday. U.S. gold futures dropped 0.4% to $1,927.20. The U.S. Commerce Department is expected to unveil its initial advance fourth-quarter GDP estimates on Thursday, which could set the tone for the Federal Reserve's Jan. 31-Feb. 1 policy meeting. Gold's losses, after the peak recorded on Tuesday, resulted from a technical correction as investors closed positions in order to lock in profits ahead of the release of the data, said ActivTrades senior analyst Ricardo Evangelista. "The overall sentiment is positive, with the Fed expected to adopt a more benign posture and announce a 25bp rate hike, when it meets next week. If confirmed, the scenario will be negative for the U.S. dollar and treasuries, offering support to gold." Lower interest rates tend to be beneficial for bullion, decreasing the opportunity cost of holding the non-yielding asset. The dollar index, meanwhile, held steady, making gold less appealing for other currency holders. [USD/] Traders expect the Fed to scale back its rate hike pace further after slowing its policy tightening spree to 50 basis points (bps) last month after four straight 75-bp hikes. Fears around possible recession were also offering support to gold, analysts said. U.S. business activity contracted for the seventh straight month in January, though the downturn moderated across both the manufacturing and services sectors for the first time since September. Among other precious metals, spot silver fell 0.9% to $23.4537 per ounce and palladium lost 1.1% to $1,723.35. Platinum snapped a three-day winning streak, having shed 1.7% to $1,038.76 on the day.

**Market Update โ€“ January 23: Same story new week!** Chinese New Year celebrations โ€“ many centres are closed in Asia. Treasuries sagged to end on a bearish week.

Wall Street (US100 +2.66%), 10-year Treasury yield is at 3.48%. Options expirations likely helped support the advance. A report of big layoffs at Alphabet added to recession fears and weighed initially, but signs of cost cutting enticed dip buying.

By Peter Nurse Investing.com - European stock markets are expected to open higher Friday, with investors attempting to maintain Januaryโ€™s positive tone amid concerns about slowing economic growth and tight monetary policy. At 02:00 ET (07:00 GMT), the DAX futures contract in Germany traded 0.4% higher, CAC 40 futures in France climbed 0.8%, while the FTSE 100 futures contract in the U.K. rose 0.5%. European stocks have had a strong start to the year, with Germanyโ€™s DAX up over 7% year-to-date, helped by hopes that the expected economic slowdown in 2023 will not be as severe as previously feared. However, these gains remain tenuous, with European Central Bank President Christine Lagarde warning, at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland on Thursday, that inflation figures remained "way too high", reiterating the need for aggressive monetary policy decisions. Additionally, ECB officials were divided over whether to raise interest rates by 50 or 75 basis points in December, according to minutes from the ECB's policy meeting last month. The central bank eventually settled on hiking its deposit rate by 50 basis points, edging down slightly from three straight larger 75 basis-point increases rolled out earlier in 2022. This tightening has had an impact on German producer prices, which fell 0.4% on the month in December, an annual increase of 21.6%, but this was not as big a reduction as expected. The Bank of England also hiked by 50 basis points in December, having lifted interest rates by a combined 325 basis points in 2022 alone, to their highest since late 2008. This resulted in disappointing news for retailers over the festive period, as U.K. retail sales fell 1% on the month in December, an annual drop of 5.8% as the monetary tightening and the cost of living crisis weighed on discretionary spending. In corporate news, Ericsson (ST:ERICb) is likely to be in the spotlight after the Swedish telecommunications company reported fourth-quarter core earnings that missed expectations for the third quarter in a row, as sales of 5G equipment slowed in high-margin markets such as the United States. Oil prices rose Friday, on course for a second straight positive week, on continued optimism that the brightening outlook for the Chinese economy will result in increased demand from the worldโ€™s largest crude importer. Earlier this week, in their monthly reports, both the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries and the International Energy Agency forecast that a Chinese economic recovery will spur record-high crude demand in 2023. This confidence has helped the market look past data showing a bigger-than-expected build in U.S. inventories, after the Energy Information Administration reported an increase of over 8 million barrels on Thursday. By 02:00 ET, U.S. crude futures traded 0.4% higher at $80.94 a barrel, while the Brent contract rose 0.4% to $86.48. Both closed 1% higher on Thursday, near their highest closing levels since the start of December. Additionally, gold futures rose 0.3% to $1,929.25/oz, while EUR/USD traded 0.1% higher at 1.0832.

By Shubham Batra and Ankika Biswas (Reuters) -Wall Street's main stock indexes were set to open sharply higher on Tuesday as a smaller-than-expected rise in U.S. consumer prices raised hopes that the Federal Reserve could soften its aggressive rate hike stance. U.S consumer prices barely rose in November amid declines in the cost of gasoline and used cars, leading to the smallest annual increase in inflation in nearly a year. Expectations that the U.S. central bank will increase the benchmark rate by 50 basis points on Wednesday shot up to 97% with the rates seen peaking in May 2023 at 4.86%. "The Fed has raised rates pretty significantly over the course of this year and we're starting to see the real results today," said Art Hogan, chief market strategist at B. Riley Financial. The U.S. Labor Department's report showed that prices increased by 7.1% on an annual basis in November, while the core rate, which excludes volatile food and energy prices, climbed 6.0%. Economists were expecting a 7.3% rise in headline CPI and a 6.1% rise in core rates. "I think what that tells us is that when the Fed meets tomorrow, they likely will have the ability to say we're raising rates by less than what they have been, at 50 basis points, and the place at which we stop will likely be at 5%," Hogan said. The consumer inflation data follows November's slightly higher-than-expected producer prices reading last week, which however, had pointed to a moderation in the trend. Fears that the Fed's aggressive policy tightening will tip the economy into a recession have pushed the benchmark S&P 500 down 16.3% this year. Still, the index has rallied off its October lows on hopes that the U.S. central bank would ease the pace of its rate hikes with the economy showing signs of a strain from its policy actions. The CBOE volatility index, also known as Wall Street's fear gauge, eased sharply off the near one-month high of 25.84 points hit earlier in the day. At 8:44 a.m. ET, Dow e-minis were up 735 points, or 2.16%, S&P 500 e-minis were up 111.5 points, or 2.79%, and Nasdaq 100 e-minis were up 458.5 points, or 3.91%. Most rate-sensitive stocks including Meta Platforms Inc (NASDAQ:META), Alphabet (NASDAQ:GOOGL) Inc, Nvidia (NASDAQ:NVDA) Corp and Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) Inc gained between 4% and 5.7% in premarket trading, helped by a decline in Treasury yields. Oracle Corp (NYSE:ORCL) jumped 5.0% on better-than-expected quarterly revenue, while Pinterest (NYSE:PINS) Inc gained 7.2% after Piper Sandler upgraded the social media platform's stock to "overweight" from "neutral".

Greetings , Unfortunately we lost yesterday 120% . The symbol that cost us this loss was once again , from one of the two most risky symbols , USDCAD . This symbol cost us two times 100% losses . It has been removed from the group . Our two most aggressive pairs are EURUSD and USDCAD from the list of 12 . Note , that these aggressors are not behaving the same way they were behaving a few years ago . If it was not for these two aggressors we would be around 1,000% return already . Well lesson learned , not only have EURUSD and USDCAD been removed from the selection list , but also two others , even though they are much better then the top two crappers . Going forward we will only execute iMAX on 8 symbols , that is a reduction of 4 more symbols . We like the challenge that aggressors provide , but we can not keep dwelling in time because of them . Also , since we lost time , we will no longer be trading at higher percentages . We will just trade at the initial lot size , until we get to 800% return . In addition , we will also be starting a new percentage track , as there is a field in the air saying that the market may be entered a bit more frequently . Lastly , we have also changed our leverage from 100:1 to 200:1 , so we may conduct withdrawals freely , without margin being an issue , we had a little bit of bad luck , but our system has improved in safety because of it . Is better for such luck to take place now , before we get into a much higher profit state .

Holding a contract with a week until expiration over the weekend definitely has risk, and not the purpose of the day trade call. Could work out well if $AAPL is up Monday, but will lose more if stock trades down with time running out. They were low cost options, if your comfortable with the risk, it's an option, but it's really your call.

By Sheila Dang, Katie Paul and Paresh Dave (Reuters) -Twitter will tell employees by email on Friday about whether they have been laid off, temporarily closing its offices and preventing staff access, following a week of uncertainty about the company's future under new owner Elon Musk. The social media company said in an email to staff that it will alert employees by 9 a.m. Pacific time on Friday (12 p.m. EDT/1600 GMT) about staff cuts. "In an effort to place Twitter on a healthy path, we will go through the difficult process of reducing our global workforce on Friday," said the email sent on Thursday, seen by Reuters. Twitter said its offices will be temporarily closed and all badge access will be suspended in order "to help ensure the safety of each employee as well as Twitter systems and customer data." The social media platform said Twitter employees who are not affected by the layoffs will be notified via their work email addresses. Staff who have been laid off will be notified with next steps to their personal email addresses, the memo said. Some employees tweeted their access to the company's IT system has been already blocked and feared whether that suggested their layoffs. "Looks like Iโ€™m unemployed yโ€™all. Just got remotely logged out of my work laptop and removed from Slack," tweeted a user with the @SBkcrn account whose profile is described as former senior community manager at Twitter. Twitter did not immediately respond to a request for comment. The notification of layoffs caps off a week of purges by Musk as he demanded deep cost cuts and imposed an aggressive new work ethic across the social media company. He has directed Twitter's teams to find up to $1 billion in annual infrastructure cost savings, according to two sources familiar with the matter and an internal Slack message reviewed by Reuters. He had already cleared out the company's senior ranks, firing its chief executive and top finance and legal executives. Others, including those sitting atop the company's advertising, marketing and human resources divisions, departed throughout the past week. Musk's first week as Twitter's owner has been marked by chaos and uncertainty. Two company-wide meetings were scheduled, only to be canceled mere hours later. Employees told Reuters they were left to piece together information through media reports, private messaging groups and anonymous forums. The layoffs, which were long expected, have chilled Twitter's famously open corporate culture that has been revered by its employees. "If you are in an office or on your way to an office, please return home," Twitter said in the email on Thursday. Shortly after the email landed in Twitter employee inboxes, hundreds of people flooded the company's Slack channels to say goodbye, two employees told Reuters. Someone invited Musk to join the channel, the sources said.

By Pavel Polityuk and Jonathan Landay KYIV/MYKOLAIV, Ukraine (Reuters) -The world must respond firmly to any Russian attempts to disrupt Ukraine's grain export corridor, President Volodymyr Zelenskiy said, as more ships were loading despite Moscow suspending its participation in a U.N.-brokered deal. One of the global consequences of Russia's war on its neighbour has been food shortages and a cost of living crisis in many countries, and a deal brokered by the United Nations and Turkey on July 22 had provided safe passage for vessels carrying grain and other fertiliser exports. Russia suspended its involvement in accord over the weekend, saying it could not guarantee safety for civilian ships because of an attack on its Black Sea fleet. In a late Tuesday night video address, Zelenskiy said ships were still moving out of Ukrainian ports with cargoes thanks to the work of Turkey and the United Nations. "But a reliable and long-term defence is needed for the grain corridor," Zelenskiy said. "Russia must clearly be made aware that it will receive a tough response from the world to any steps to disrupt our food exports," Zelenskiy said. "At issue here clearly are the lives of tens of millions of people." The grains deal aimed to help avert famine in poorer countries by injecting more wheat, sunflower oil and fertilizer into world markets and to ease a dramatic rise in prices. It targeted the pre-war level of 5 million metric tonnes exported from Ukraine each month. The U.N. coordinator for grain and fertiliser exports under the accord said on Twitter on Tuesday that he expects loaded ships to leave Ukrainian ports on Thursday. Ukrainian Infrastructure Minister Oleksandr Kubrakov said on Twitter that eight vessels were expected to pass through the corridor on Thursday. Having spoken to his Russian counterpart twice in as many days, Turkish Defence Minister Hulusi Akar hoped the deal would continue, adding that he expected a response from Russia "today and tomorrow". POWER CUTS Russia fired missiles at Ukrainian cities including the capital Kyiv in what President Vladimir Putin called retaliation for an attack on Russia's Black Sea Fleet over the weekend. Ukraine said it shot most of those missiles down, but some had hit power stations, knocking out electricity and water supplies. Nine regions were experiencing power cuts. "We will do everything we can to provide power and heat for the coming winter," Zelenskiy said. "But we must understand that Russia will do everything it can to destroy normal life." Authorities in Kyiv were preparing more than 1,000 heating points throughout the city in case its district heating system is disabled, Mayor Vitali Klitschko said. The United States denounced the attacks, saying about 100 missiles had been fired on Monday and Tuesday targeting water and energy supplies. "With temperatures dropping, these Russian attacks aimed at exacerbating human suffering are particularly heinous," State Department spokesperson Ned Price told reporters at a daily briefing. Russia denies targeting civilians. Kyiv came under further attack overnight, authorities said. Zelenskiy's chief of staff Andriy Yermak said Ukrainian soldiers shot down 12 out of 13 Iranian drones. "We are now actively conducting a dialogue regarding the supply of modern air defense systems, we are working on this every day," he said on the Telegram messaging app. KHERSON EVACUATIONS Russia told civilians on Tuesday to leave an area along the eastern bank of the Dnipro River in the Ukrainian province of Kherson, a major extension of an evacuation order that Kyiv says amounts to the forced depopulation of occupied territory. Russia had previously ordered civilians out of a pocket it controls on the west bank of the river, where Ukrainian forces have been advancing for weeks with the aim of capturing the city of Kherson, the first city that Russian forces took control over after invading Ukraine on Feb. 24. Russian-installed officials said on Tuesday they were extending that order to a 15-km (9-mile) buffer zone along the east bank too. Ukraine says the evacuations include forced deportations from occupied territory, a war crime. The mouth of the Dnipro has become one of the most consequential frontlines in the war. Seven towns on the east bank would be evacuated, comprising the main populated settlements along that stretch of the river, Vladimir Saldo, Russian-installed head of occupied Kherson province, said in a video message. Russian-installed authorities in the Kherson region also said an obligatory evacuation of Kakhovka district, close to the Nova Kakhovka hydroelectric station, was to begin on Nov. 6. Moscow has accused Kyiv of planning to use a so-called "dirty bomb" to spread radiation, or to blow up a dam to flood towns and villages in Kherson province. Kyiv says accusations it would use such tactics on its own territory are absurd, but that Russia might be planning such actions itself to blame Ukraine. In the city of Bakhmut, a target of Russia's armed forces in their slow advance through the eastern Donetsk region, some residents were refusing to leave as fighting intensified. "Only the strongest stayed," said Lyubov Kovalenko, a 65-year-old retiree. "Letโ€™s put it this way, the poor ones. Everyone is wearing whatever clothing we have left." Rodion Miroshnik, "ambassador" of the neighbouring Russian-occupied region of Luhansk, said Russian troops and their allies had repelled Ukrainian attacks on the towns of Kreminna and Bilohorivka. Moscow describes its actions in Ukraine as a "special military operations to demilitarise and "denazify" its neighbour. Ukraine and Western nations have dismissed this as a baseless pretext for invasion.

By Arundhati Sarkar (Reuters) - Gold prices rose from a three-week trough on Thursday due to a pullback in the U.S. dollar, although higher Treasury yields and prospects of another big rate hike by the Federal Reserve kept investors on edge. Spot gold rose 0.5% to $1,637.02 per ounce by 1156 GMT, having slipped to its lowest since end-September earlier in the day. U.S. gold futures gained 0.5% to $1,641.90. The dollar index was down 0.4% against its rivals, making gold less expensive for other currency holders. [USD/] "A slightly weaker U.S. dollar and losses in the equity markets are giving a little bit of support to gold as a safe haven," said Peter Fertig, an analyst at Quantitative Commodity Research. However, rising yields in major bond markets and outlook for further monetary policy tightening by most central banks are weighing on gold prices, Fertig said. Higher U.S. interest rates increase the opportunity cost of holding the zero-yielding metal. Benchmark 10-year Treasury yields held near their highest since mid-2008. [USD/] Fed Bank of Minneapolis President Neel Kashkari said on Wednesday that U.S. job market demand remained strong and underlying inflation pressures probably had not peaked yet. Gold is fast approaching key lows and Fed members retaining their hawkish chorus could keep the pressure on prices, said City Index analyst Matt Simpson. The Fed is widely expected to hike interest rates by 75 basis points at its policy meeting next month after U.S consumer prices increased more than expected in September. However, demand from India and China is on the higher side and that may provide some support to gold from major selling, said Hareesh V, head of commodity research at Geojit Financial Services in Kochi, India. Spot silver rose 1.3% to $18.68 per ounce, platinum climbed 0.7% to $890.25, and palladium added 0.3% to $2,005.88.

By Hyunjoo Jin and Akash Sriram (Reuters) - Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) Inc said on Wednesday it expected to miss its vehicle delivery target this year, but downplayed concerns about softening demand after its revenue missed Wall Street estimates. Chief Executive Elon Musk told analysts on a conference call there was excellent demand in the fourth quarter, addressing investors' concerns that buyers could be discouraged by the weak global economy and high prices for Tesla vehicles. But Tesla said some logistics challenges would persist, with fourth-quarter deliveries growing by less than 50% while production rose 50%. "I wouldn't say we're recession proof, but it's certainly recession resilient," Musk said. Previously, Tesla had repeatedly said it was aiming for 50% growth this year from the 936,172 cars it delivered in 2021. Its shares fell 4.3% in after-market trading. Tesla is expanding fast despite global economic jitters, and investors are closely watching for signs that consumer demand is cooling as inflation surges and interest rates climb. The company's third-quarter automotive gross margin was 27.9%, missing analysts' estimates and down from 30.5% a year earlier. Revenue for the third quarter was $21.45 billion, a record but short of analysts' estimates of $21.96 billion, according to IBES data from Refinitiv. The company said it had a negative foreign exchange impact of $250 million on its earnings as the U.S. dollar strengthened against other major currencies. "Raw material cost inflation impacted our profitability along with ramp inefficiencies" from its new factories in Berlin and Texas, and the production of its new 4680 batteries, according to Tesla's statement. Musk added that production of the 4680 battery was gaining rapid traction, although executive Andrew Baglino said, "There are challenges still ahead that we have not yet surpassed. No doubt." Musk added that Tesla's Semi trucks, which would start to be delivered to customers beginning this December, will not use the 4680 battery cells. Musk also said the company has the ability to do a stock buyback in the range of $5 billion to $10 billion, pending board review and approval. PATH TO PASS APPLE MARKET SHARE Early this month, Tesla said it delivered 35% more vehicles in the July-September period than in the previous quarter, thanks in part to a rebound in China output after lengthy COVID-19 disruptions, but the record number was shy of vehicle production and analysts' estimates. The electric vehicle pioneer has seen its shares tumble about 50% from record highs last November as investors were spooked by fears of a global economic slowdown and Musk's bid to buy social media company Twitter. Musk told the conference call he saw a path for Tesla to be worth more than two mammoth companies, Apple Inc (NASDAQ:AAPL) and Saudi Aramco (TADAWUL:2222), combined. Tesla's market cap is now under $700 billion, while Apple is worth $2.3 trillion and oil producer Saudi Aramco is worth $2.1 trillion. Analysts had expected Musk to voice optimism about Tesla in the conference call. Musk has been trying to raise cash to fund his $44 billion deal to take Twitter Inc (NYSE:TWTR) private. Some experts say Musk may need to sell about $3 billion more in stock after the earnings announcement to help fund the deal. Musk on Wednesday said he was excited about his pending acquisition of Twitter Inc, though he said he and other investors were overpaying for the social media company. Musk also said Tesla's Cybertruck pick-up truck was on track to enter production in the middle of next year and its heavy duty semi truck could see 50,000 units in North America in 2024.

Honestly, you could buy the Mar2023 $5 call for 0.80 more and have a lot more upside. Or buy the Mar $5C and sell Jan $10C or Mar $10 call for a low cost spread with a great R/R.

By Kevin Buckland TOKYO (Reuters) - Asian stocks followed Wall Street lower and crude oil stayed weak on Thursday as investors weighed the risks of global recession amid hawkish Federal Reserve rhetoric and uncertainty about the Bank of England's commitment to stabilising markets. The dollar held its ground against major peers and bond yields edged higher as traders awaited U.S. consumer price data that could shed light on the pace of further Fed policy tightening. Japan's Nikkei slipped 0.48%, while South Korea's Kospi slid 1.15%. Hong Kong's Hang Seng dropped 1%, and mainland Chinese blue chips lost 0.28%. MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares lost 0.57%, languishing close to Wednesday's 2 1/2-year low. UK FTSE futures pointed to a 0.18% decline at the open, and German DAX futures signaled a 0.35% retreat. U.S. emini stock futures offered some slight hope though, rising 0.1% following a 0.33% decline in the S&P 500 from overnight. "I'm more concerned than I've been for some time," said Tom Nash, a fixed income portfolio manager at UBS Asset Management in Sydney. "The risk of an over-tightening episode and some mishap in financial markets is higher than I can remember." Minutes of the Fed's latest policy meeting released Wednesday showed many officials "emphasized the cost of taking too little action to bring down inflation likely outweighed the cost of taking too much action," although several committee members said it would be important to "calibrate" the pace of further rate hikes to reduce the risk of "significant adverse effects" on the economy. Treasury yields turned lower after the minutes, reversing an earlier rise, with investors focusing on the dovish undertones in taking yields back from near two-decade highs. The U.S. 10-year benchmark yield ticked up again in Tokyo trading though, and was last 2 basis points higher than Wednesday at 3.923%. The immediate focus for investors now is U.S. consumer price data due later in the global day. Wednesday's minutes were "not the dovish pivot some market participants are looking for," Joseph Capurso, head of international economics at Commonwealth Bank of Australia (OTC:CMWAY), wrote in a client note. "A pivot will depend on the inflation data." Fed Governor Michelle Bowman took a hawkish stance in a speech on Wednesday, saying that if high inflation does not start to wane she will continue to support aggressive rate rises. Markets lay 90% odds for another 75 basis-point rate hike in November, versus 10% probability of a half-point bump. The dollar index, which gauges the greenback against six major rivals, stuck near the middle of its range this week, trading little changed at 113.27. The U.S. currency remained close to a fresh 24-year high to the yen from overnight at 146.98, last changing hands at 146.81. At the same time, the dollar was little changed versus sterling, which had rebounded strongly from a two-week trough of $1.0925 on Tuesday. It last traded at $1.1088. Benchmark 10-year gilt yields had swung from a fresh 14-year peak at 4.632% to close at 4.429% on Wednesday, little changed from the previous session. The Bank of England insisted that its emergency bond market support will expire on Friday as originally announced, countering media reports of continued aid if necessary. BoE Governor Andrew Bailey had riled markets on Tuesday by saying British pension funds and other investors hit hard by a slump in bond prices had until that deadline to fix their problems. "Volatility in UK markets โ€“ gilts and sterling - remains exceptional," but "the reality is (the BoE) will necessarily be there if market conditions demand,"Ray Attrill, head of foreign-exchange strategy at National Australia Bank (OTC:NABZY), wrote in a report. Meanwhile, crude oil markets remained weak following a 2% slide on Wednesday amid worries over demand. Brent crude futures dropped 7 cents, or 0.1%, to $92.38 a barrel, while U.S. West Texas Intermediate crude was down 21 cents, or 0.2%, at $87.06 a barrel. [O/R]

The on-chain cost basis for #Bitcoin Short-Term Holders has now crossed below that of Long-Term Holders. This means that buyers of $BTC over the last 5-months have a superior cost basis to those who HODLed through all the volatility of the 2020-22 cycle. Na mal sehen. ob das wie in der Vergangenheit ein nutzbarer Indikator ist
