The market is dominated by speculation regarding an early rate cut by the Federal Reserve, leading to record highs in U.S. equity markets. Despite a recent slide in the dollar following its bullish run last week, some market strategists caution that the upbeat U.S. economic data suggests a prolonged period of elevated interest rates. In Asia, all eyes are on the Bank of Japan (BoJ), which is expected to announce its interest rate decision on tomorrow (23rd Jan), accompanied by the BoJ monetary policy statement. Anticipation is high that the Japanese central bank may maintain its ultra-loose monetary policy for an extended period due to challenges in sustaining inflation and wage growth in the country. Meanwhile, oil prices encountered robust resistance around the $74 level. Additionally, concerns about tension in the Red Sea were tempered by Libya restarting oil production from its largest field, impacting the overall supply-demand dynamics in the oil market.
