USDSEK Forecast – February-7-2024 – 4-Hour Chart

The 4-hour chart’s technical indicators are bearish. The awesome oscillator bars are red, and the RSI hovers below the 50 level. From a technical standpoint, the USD/SEK price will likely fall and test the lower band of the bearish flag, followed by the 38.2% Fibonacci support and the 10.35 mark.

Conversely, the bearish outlook should be invalidated if the market returns above the 10.5 resistance and stabilizes itself. The road to 10.6 resistance, followed by the upper line of the rising channel, will be paved.

Sweden’s Service Sector Growth Picks Up in January 2024

Bloomberg—In January 2024, Sweden’s Services PMI rose to 51.8 from 50.3 the month before, marking the second month of growth. This was the highest score since July 2023, driven by more business (56.2 compared to December’s 51.3) and quicker supplier deliveries (55.3, up from 52.4).

However, there was a slight drop in new orders (47 from 47.9) and a slight decrease in jobs (50.9 down from 51.1). The prices for raw materials and other inputs decreased, with the index falling to 55.9 from 57.8. Jörgen Kennemar from Swedbank, analyzing the PMI, mentioned that this growth suggests the economic downturn in business is leveling off. Yet, he warned that recovery might be slow, mainly due to the struggling global economy.
