As the recent volatile period in stocks seems to have ended with the easing of the North Korean situation, and the major US indices approach their record highs again, traders and investors are focusing on Apple today. One of the most iconic products of this century turns officially 10 today, with the unveiling of the supposedly revolutionary iPhone X (or Edition) which should bring the most popular smartphone model to par with the best android phones technically. With Apple still being the most valuable public company, and the dominant player in the segment regarding profits, investors pay a close attention to the event as it could drive a large percentage of Wall Street earnings.

The Dollar’s bounce is the other important trend today, and that helped another day of lofty gains in Asia and Europe alike. The Nikkei and the DAX both surged higher, while the Yen and the Euro retreated, and that propelled the global indices to new all-time highs as well. The Great British Pound had a volatile session, as the British inflation numbers came in higher than analysts expected, pushing the currency higher in early trading, while the delay of the next round of the Brexit talks caused a brief dip in the Pound.

As for the Dollar, the less than expected damage caused by Irma, and the positive surprise in the JOLTS Job Openings release both helped the Greenback today, while safe haven assets experienced another beating, as global sentiment improved. That said, the uptrend in gold remains intact, and as the stock markets long-term prospects are less than stellar, and the US economic growth is unlikely to support the Fed’s tightening plans, the current trends might change very soon.

Cryptocurrencies

The major coins started out the day in an encouraging fashion, but the early rally lacked the conviction of the previous month, and most of the currencies turned lower. While the key support levels are still holding up despite last week’s volatility, the long-term picture still suggests a more pronounced correction in the segment. Bitcoin has been strong during the recent move lower, but Ethereum has been dragging the market lower, and the weakness in the second largest coin seems to be persistent. While not all coins are overbought, with the likes of Ripple, NEO, IOTA, and ETC being neutral or oversold. We expect correlations to remain elevated, as the broad correction unfolds in the sector after the huge rally.

Technical Picture

The German DAX surged past our target for the current move higher at 12,500 as the dip in the Euro helped European equities on the broadly bullish day. The short-term picture is now slightly overbought, and we advise traders to reduce their long positions after the strong rally, although more upside is still possible in the coming days.

Technical Analysis: Correction Continues but Coins Remain Stable

Published

on

It’s been another mixed session for cryptocurrency investors as judging by only the price action, the segment suffered losses across the board, but comparing the current sell-off to the January plunge reveals that the majors are much more resilient this time around.

// -- Discuss and ask questions in our community on Workplace.

The largest digital currencies are holding on to most of the gains of the recent weeks, and the price action near the crucial support zones is also encouraging. With all that said, the correction is not over yet, and further losses are still in the cards, but barring a substantial change in price action, the coins will likely continue the rally.

Bitcoin has been trading around the key $10,000 level all day long, and, so far, a clear break-down has been averted. The short-term momentum indicators are now in neutral territory regarding the most valuable coin, and that could mean that a bottom is close, and investors should already add to their holdings here. Further strong support is found between $9000 and $9200, while targets are ahead at $11,300, $13,000, and $14,250.

XMR/USDT, 4-Hour Chart Analysis

Correlation between the majors has increased during the sell-off, but there are still clear outperformers and laggards, adding to the bullish case. Monero remains among the strongest coins from a technical perspective, trading right at the lower boundary of the bullish consolidation pattern, with the $280 price level holding up for now. The coin faces strong resistance near $300 and $335, but we expect the uptrend to continue with the next target being ahead at $400, while further support is found at $240.

Pre-Market: Bulls Try to Fight Back after Ugly Overnight Session

Published

on

Following the steep late-day downturn on Wednesday, which followed the not-to-hawkish FED meeting minutes, Asian markets and US equity futures continued lower with a vengeance. The very active overnight trading is another sign of the regime change in traditional financial markets that we have been monitoring for the last two weeks, ever since the “Black Monday of 2018”.

EUR/USD Changing Behavior

The European session brought about an oversold bounce that stabilized markets from stocks to currencies. The EUR/USD pair that has started acting “normally” considering its relationship with US Treasury yields lately, is headed south once again, trading only 0.5% above its recent correction lows after clearly breaking below the rising trendline.

EUR/USD, 4-Hour Chart Analysis

The bull-trap that we identified a few days ago was the start of the current leg lower, and if the regime change will be persistent, the most traded forex pair could be back to the role of the “risk-on/risk-off” indicator that has been the privilege of commodity currencies in the last couple of weeks.

USD/JPY, 4-Hour Chart Analysis

The Japanese Yen is showing notable strength after its overbought dip, and the primary safe-haven currency could be in for more gains, should the risk-selloff continue. The Yen also gained ground on the common European currency, following the dovish ECB meeting accounts and the misses in the German IFO business climate indicator and the British GDP, which all question the European growth-monetary tightening narrative.

Canadian Dollar in for a Wild Ride

USD/CAD, 4-Hour Chart Analysis

With the Canadian retail sales report and the US crude oil inventory data coming out soon, forex traders should expect sizeable moves in the recently weak currency, while the USD should also be very active during the US stock market session.

All eyes are on Treasury yields again, with the slight correction today helping the bounce in stocks and other risk assets. The Nasdaq could be the motor of a stronger rally on Wall Street, but we wouldn’t bet the house on that, as the short-term technical setup remains bearish, and a re-test of the correction lows is still the most likely scenario for the coming weeks.

Crypto Update: Bitcoin Tests $10,000 amid Correction

Published

on

The altcoin-triggered correction continued in the segment overnight amid the renewed sell-off in global stocks, with a slight bounce in Asian trading and a subsequent dip after the European open. The major coins are all down by more than 5% since yesterday, but for now, the momentum of the move is not worrying, and most importantly the leadership of the rally is holding up relatively well.

// -- Discuss and ask questions in our community on Workplace.

Bitcoin bounced off the key $10,000 level, the $200 support zone held in Litecoin, Monero is still in its consolidation pattern above $280, and only Dash showed deterioration since yesterday, but the long-term picture remains encouraging even in Dash’s case.

The above-mentioned levels in the technically strongest coins are not even the last line of defense for bulls, as the preceding strong rally left several key levels behind which could serve as the basis of the next leg higher.

Also, we expect the currently negatively diverging coins, led by Ethereum and Ripple, to start showing strength as the short-term momentum reaches oversold territory, and good entry points might be close both for traders and long-term investors.

BTC/USD, 4-Hour Chart Analysis

BTC touched the $10,000 support level, but for now, the technically more important $9000-$9200 zone is not in danger, and the short-term momentum indicators are already neutral thanks to the correction.

That said, more downside is likely in the coming days, but investors and traders should be looking for reversals to enter new positions, as we expect the uptrend to continue, with targets ahead at $11,300, $13,000 and $14,250.

Ethereum Provides a Glimmer of Hope

ETH/USD, 4-Hour Chart Analysis

Although bears are still in control regarding the short-term picture in the second largest coin, this morning ETH didn’t hit a significant new swing low, and that could be the first sign of relative strength, with the $845 support not far above the current price level, and the MACD indicator is already near oversold territory.

Despite the slightly positive sign, short-term traders should remain defensive concerning the weaker coins, while long-term investors should still accumulate the currencies on the dips.

Stay tuned for our detailed technical analysis later on today.
