Last week blew traders' minds!
The US dollar dropped for the first time in seven weeks after Jerome Powell's speech on Tuesday. As a result, EURUSD increased to 1.0600, and USDJPY plunged to 128. Stock indices found support levels. Chinese Hang Seng rose for the second week in a row. US500 and US100 plunged at the beginning of the previous week but reversed on Thursday. The critical support levels for US500 and US100 are 3850 and 11 700, respectively. The oil market keeps trading sideways as European Union tries to approve the Russian oil embargo. The crypto market followed the US stock indices. As a result, Bitcoin decreased to the local support of $27 000, and it looks like buyers will hold the asset above this level for a while.
On Monday, the head of the Bank of England will participate in a panel discussion regarding the monetary policy's future. More hawkish than expected statements might boost GBPUSD to 1.2800. Otherwise, the pair might decline below 1.2350 once again. On Tuesday, the German flash manufacturing PMI will shake the euro. Better-than-expected data might push EURUSD to 1.0700.
On the other hand, if the actual result is lower than the expectations, the pair might plunge to 1.0350. The period from Wednesday to Friday will be intense for the US dollar. On Wednesday, the FOMC will present the meeting minutes. On Thursday, the prelim GDP will be posted. On Friday, the bureau of economic analysis will publish the core PCE price index. The US dollar index plunged at the end of the previous week with a strong impulse. The trend might continue if the US economic data signals an upcoming recovery.
Next week, Nvidia and Alibaba will post earnings reports.
Nvidia's price lost 50% of its high in January 2022. Better-than-expected report might push the stock to the $200 resistance. On the other hand, in case of a worse-than-expected release, the price might fall to $150.
Alibaba has found its global support, and the price is ready for the massive uptrend. The upcoming report might confirm investors' opinions about the Chinese market recovery.

If the price breaks through $22.50, it will head towards $24.30.
The US dollar index rose to 105.40 after the Fed’s 75-basis-point key rate hike, while the stock and the crypto markets fell. However, during the past few days, investors and traders returned to risk assets as they expect inflation growth to slow.
