Euro Under Pressure as COVID Cases Mount


Winter has arrived in Europe and, with it, a new wave of COVID-19 infections. Despite Europe doing a relatively good job at vaccinating the population, the current vaccination rate is not substantial enough to curb the infection in some countries.

COVID-19 infections are mounting once again, thus putting pressure on economies. Austria, for example, announced a new three-week lockdown in a desperate attempt to stop the virus and also to save the ski season (that has just started), as the tourism industry contributes in no small measure to the Austrian GDP.

Moreover, the country announced that vaccination will become compulsory starting from February next year. The development has triggered a decline in euro pairs, with the EURUSD exchange rate trading below 1.13, and the EURJPY below 129.

Fed Turns Hawkish


The Federal Reserve of the United States announced the tapering of its quantitative easing and a gradual phase-out of the bond-buying program. However, last week, some Fed members argued for a faster reduction to tapering and signaled at least one rate hike to come in 2022. As such, the divergence with other central banks will support the dollar in the period ahead.

On the other hand, the European Central Bank clearly has no intentions of hiking the interest rate next year. As such, from a monetary policy perspective, the euro has no reason to rise anytime soon.

All euro pairs have come under pressure, not only the EURUSD. The EURJPY, for instance, traded with a bid tone all year but failed at the 133 level. In a matter of just a few days, it declined below 129 despite the USDJPY holding above 114.

EURGBP is another pair reflecting the euro’s weakness. In addition, the Bank of England has voiced some concerns about the rising inflation rate, which could mean it following in the Fed’s footsteps sooner rather than later. Therefore, further declines in the cross pair should be expected.

All in all, the euro looks weak here ahead of Thanksgiving and at the start of the winter season. As COVID-19 puts pressure on the European economies again, traders have no incentives to buy the common currency.

BTCUSD and XRPUSD Technical Analysis – 23rd NOV, 2021

BTCUSD: Head and Shoulders Pattern Below $60,000

Bitcoin is moving in continuation of a strong bearish trend this week, and any attempts towards a bullish reversal failed. This is the reason we see BTCUSD trading below the $60,000 handle in the European trading session today.

We can clearly see a head-and-shoulders pattern below the $60,000 level which signifies that we are in a confirmed downtrend.

Yesterday, we saw yesterday BTCUSD touching an intraday high of $59,965 after which the prices started to decline and touched an intraday low of $55,676, with today’s intraday low of $55,864.

We can see a continuous downwards selling pressure in bitcoin today, and more losses are expected in the coming days.

The immediate short-term outlook for bitcoin turned bearish, and now we are looking at levels of $55,000 and $52,000.

Williams percent range is overbought which signifies that more selling is expected today in the US trading session which will push the prices of BTCUSD below the $55,000 handle.

Bitcoin is now moving below both the 100 hourly simple and exponential moving averages.

The average true range is indicating less market volatility which means that markets are due to enter a consolidation phase soon.

  • Bitcoin’s downtrend continues aiming for downsides below $55,000
  • Stoch is indicating OVERBOUGHT levels
  • The price is now trading just below its pivot level of $56,080
  • All moving averages are giving a STRONG SELL signal at current market levels of $56,278

Bitcoin: Strong Bearish Trend Towards $55,000

BTCUSD has already broken its support level of $56,500 and is now about to break its important psychological support level of $55,000.

The price of BTCUSD is trading above its classic support level of $55,242 and Fibonacci support level of $55,874 in the European trading session.

In the last 24hrs, BTCUSD has gone DOWN by -2.21% with a price change of -1271$ and has a 24hr trading volume of USD 35.677 billion.

Bitcoin Bonds

El Salvador has become the first country to issue a $1 billion bitcoin bond with a 10-year maturity on the Liquid Network.

The new bitcoin-linked bond appears to be the highest-yielding fixed income instrument globally. This bond will yield a 6.5% rate of annual interest payments to its investors.

The credit rating for this bitcoin bond is negative due to the distressed-debt situation of El Salvador.

El Salvador adopted bitcoin as legal tender in  June 2021, after which Moody's Investors Service downgraded the long-term foreign-currency issuer and senior unsecured ratings to Caa1 from B3.

The Week Ahead

The downward selling pressure seen in Bitcoin is expected to push its prices to the $52,000 range, after which a fresh wave of consolidation and an uptrend move is expected.

The bearish trend formation continues and is expected to push the prices below the level of $54,000 this week. After touching a low of $52,000, a potential bullish trend reversal is expected for which we will have to wait until next week.

The prices will need to remain above the important support level of $52,682 for a bullish reversal of the markets.

Technical Indicators:

Relative strength index (14-day): at 35.28 indicating a SELL

Average directional change (14-day): at 40.639 indicating a SELL

Moving averages convergence divergence (12,26): at -442.90 indicating a SELL

Ultimate oscillator: at 40.127 indicating a SELL

In today’s Asian trading session, ETHUSD touched an intraday high of $4,334.

We can see a double bottom pattern above $4,000 which signifies a bullish reversal, end of a downtrend and a shift towards an uptrend.

In today’s European trading session, the price of Ethereum continues to rise slowly and is aiming for upsides of $4,400 and $4,500.

The fall in the levels of ETH seen last week occurred due to profit-taking; the bullish tone is back in the markets. The pair is gaining a bullish momentum and is also poised for a rally upwards of $4,500 that can happen any time now.

ETH is trading above its pivot level of $4,276 and moving in a bullish trend. The price of ETHUSD has already broken its classic resistance level of $4,298 and its Fibonacci resistance level of $4,290. In the US trading session, it is aiming towards the $4,400 handle.

The relative strength index is NEUTRAL which signifies a potential trend reversal today.

It is best to enter into long positions in Ethereum at the present market level of $4,300 with targets of $5,000 the next month.

We can already see an increase in Ethereum’s market capitalization which currently stands at $510 billion.

The price of ETHUSD has already broken its key resistance level of $4,270 and is about to break its next resistance level of $4,335.

We could see Ether printing at above $4,500 next week and aim upsides towards the $5,000 handle.

At present, the market is offering a good buying opportunity for long-term traders who can hold till it reaches $10,000 in 2022.
