BTCUSD: Double Top Pattern Below $52,000

Bitcoin was unable to sustain its bullish moves this week. After touching a high of $52,008, it declined to a low of 48740 in the Asian trading session today.

At present, the markets are ranging in a consolidation phase below the $50,000 handle, and we may see more downward pressure in the coming days.

Bitcoin has gone back into a bearish channel and is trading below the $50,000 handle. We can see more downsides in the range of $49,000 to $48,500 later today.

We can clearly see a double top pattern below the $52,000 level, which signifies the end of an uptrend and a shift towards a downtrend.

Both the Stoch and Williams percent ranges are indicating an OVERBOUGHT level, meaning that in the immediate short-term a decline in the prices is expected.

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

The average true range is indicating a high market volatility which means that markets are due to decline further.

  • Bitcoin trend reversal is seen below $52,000
  • Ultimate oscillator is indicating a NEUTRAL level
  • The price is now trading just above its pivot level of $49,227
  • All the moving averages are giving a STRONG SELL signal at the current market level of $49,370

Bitcoin: Bearish Reversal Below $52,000 Confirmed
btcchart.png

Bitcoin is forming a bearish trend pattern which means that the prices can start declining further due to the selling pressure that is coming into global cryptocurrency markets.

All of the major technical indicators are giving a STRONG SELL signal, which means that in the immediate short-term we are expecting targets of $49,000 and $48,000.

The price of BTCUSD is now facing its classic support level of $49,077 and Fibonacci support level of $49,111 after which the path towards $48,500 will get cleared.

In the last 24hrs, BTCUSD has gone DOWN by -2.83% with a price change of 1436$, and has a 24hr trading volume of USD 30.797 billion. We can see an Increase of 49.60% in the trading volume as compared to yesterday.

This increase in the trading volume of BTC is happening because of the increased selling pressure which, in turn, has been triggered by the end-of-the-year market liquidation and profit taking by global investors.

The Week Ahead

Bitcoin has now started its downside correction as the bears managed to bring its price below the important psychological support level of $50,000.

The short-term outlook is negative, but the medium to long-term outlooks remain BULLISH for bitcoin, with targets of $55,000 to $60,000 in 2022.

The relative strength index is below the 35 mark indicating a weaker demand for bitcoin and a heavy selling pressure in the BTCUSD market.

We can expect to see the level of $48,500 before the end of 2021.

BTC Options Market

As 2021 comes to an end, bitcoin is facing a huge options expiration on 31st Dec 2021.

Around 5.7 billion USD worth of BTC options will expire on the Deribit exchange, which will increase the liquidity in the bitcoin markets globally.
btco.jpg

The total combined value of bitcoin options will be valued at 10.7 billion USD.

Technical Indicators:

Relative strength index (14-day): at 32.33 indicating a SELL

Average directional change (14-day): at 46.25 indicating a SELL

Rate of price change: at -4.503 indicating a SELL

Moving averages convergence divergence (12,26): at -411.70 indicating a SELL

Inflation fears rising as 6% looks possible: Will interest rates rise?
boex.jpg

Today is the first working day for many people within the world's most developed financial markets centers after the festive holidays, and among predictions of interesting potential market movements for the year ahead and optimism relating to interesting new blockchain technology which is part of the revolutionary direction in finance at the moment, a nagging elephant in the room lurks.

That elephant in the room is inflation, that age-old consideration which, no matter how high the technology that powers the world's financial system these days has become, is a metric that still remains one of the most important measures of economic circumstances.

As the markets begin to open across Europe today for the first time in a few days, many analysts are predicting further rises in inflation, which in the United Kingdom, one of the world's largest financial markets economies and home to the most valuable major currency in the world - the Pound - has been at an 11 year high of 5.1% for a few weeks.

Today's rather alarming predictions from Resolution Foundation, which is a government think tank, have demonstrated that inflation could rise to 6% in the United Kingdom, a rate which has already been reached in the United States. Should this happen, it would be the highest inflation Britain's economy will have experienced since 1992.

Should this occur, the economy will likely be affected by a combination of stalled real wages and rising costs of services and everyday products, and if Resolution Foundation's predictions are correct and a 6% rate of inflation occurs by April 2022, the average British household's costs are likely to rise by approximately £1,200 which will be another woe to accompany the energy price rises and tax hikes that have been noticeable over recent months.

Resolution Foundation's 11-page report which was published this morning explains that the beginning of the year is likely to be a period in which the pressure on living standards that many households are already facing could evolve in an environment in which price rises outstrip pay growth.

The think tank has branded the Spring of 2022 to be a period of a 'broad-based cost of living catastrophe affecting the vast majority of households'

Looking forward a few years, it is possible that real wages could be £740 per year lower than they would have been if there had been no lockdowns or disruptions to the economy since March 2020.

Where does this leave interest rates?

So far, the Bank of England has not increased interest rates, despite that being a priority subject at the Bank of England meetings recently.

Perhaps this is because the Bank of England understands that when interest rates are increased, it potentially cripples the economy. The last time this was done in ernest was in 1991 when the interest rate was over 10% and mass home repossessions took place due to mortgage payment unaffordability.

The Bank of England has tried to stave that off so far, however the question remains as to how long businesses can swallow the cost of inflation and not be able to pass it on to their already cash-strapped customers.

Interestingly, the Pound is up against the US Dollar this morning at 1.34, showing that the currency markets are not fazed by this news.

The same applies to the Pound's value against the Euro, which is now at 1.19. These increases in values by the Pound against its major counterparts occurred specifically as the news broke, which is interesting considering that the British economy could be in serious trouble this coming year.

Perhaps those with an analytical focus have noticed that the United States has been battling with even higher inflation for some time now yet it has not become a flagging economy to the extent that such a high rate of inflation has caused in the past... yet!

Given the uncertainty of the effect of these high levels of inflation in a modern world in which the financial economy is very different to how it was 30 years ago, the way it will be overcome is unknown. Perhaps comparisons with the Eurozone and the US have paved the way for a reasonably buoyant Pound which appears to have gone the opposite way to what would be expected on the arrival of such news.

Additionally, there has been no lockdown in England, whereas there has in Scotland and Wales, when many were expecting the British government to lock down the entire United Kingdom as a routine matter of course, which did not happen.

The hospitality businesses across England are about to welcome a deluge of residents of Wales and Scotland who have vowed to go across the border to celebrate New Year, giving that industry a much needed boost.

Perhaps 2022 will be a year of volatility and changing circumstances. Either way, this is a very interesting start and something of a white knuckle ride.

ETHUSD and LTCUSD Technical Analysis – 30th DEC, 2021

ETHUSD – Rounding Bottom Pattern Above $3,600

Ethereum continued its bearish trend this week, and touched a low of $3,584 in the Asian trading session today, after which the prices have stabilized above the $3,600 handle.

Most of the selling witnessed in Ethereum was due to the end-of-the-year profit-taking by long-term investors, and at current levels, we can now see some buying in the markets.

ETHUSD continues to recover from its losses today and entered into a consolidation phase above $3,600.

We can clearly see a rounding bottom pattern above the $3,600 handle which signifies a trend reversal towards a bullish uptrend.

ETH is now trading just below its pivot levels of $3,706 and moving in a bullish consolidation channel. The price of ETHUSD is about to break its classic resistance level of $3,722 and its Fibonacci resistance level of $3,734, after which the path towards $3,800 will get cleared.

All the major technical indicators are giving a BUY signal.

ETH is now trading below both the 100 hourly and 200 hourly simple moving averages.

  • Ethereum trend reversal is seen above the $3,600 mark
  • Short-term range appears to be mildly bullish for ETHUSD
  • Commodity channel index is indicating a NEUTRAL market
  • Average true range is indicating LESS market volatility

Ether: Mild Bullish Trend Reversal seen Above $3,600
eth.png

ETHUSD is on its way to recover from its losses this week, and has entered into a consolidation phase above $3,600.

We can see a mildly bullish channel in progression today which if confirmed will push the prices of ETHUSD above $3,800 before the end of 2021.

Overall market scenario for Ethereum appears to be NEUTRAL.

StochRSI is indicating an OVERBOUGHT level which means more downward correction could also take place in the prices before the start of an upswing trend.

The average true range is indicating low market volatility, and we can see an increase of 12.16% in the trading volume as compared to yesterday.

ETH has lost -2.00% with a price change of -75.26$ in the past 24hrs and has a trading volume of 17.005 billion USD.

The Week Ahead

Ether is slowly recovering from its losses, and the price continues to uptick in the European trading session today.

We have detected an MA 10 and MA 5 crossover pattern which indicates a bullish reversal of the trend, and if this pattern continues, we can test levels of $3,800 to $3,850 very soon.

The immediate short-term outlook for Ether has turned positive; the medium to long-term outlook for Ether remain bullish with the target of above $5,000 in January 2022

The recent downturn has also led to the decline in the market capitalization of Ethereum to 439.44 billion USD.

Ethereum’s Transformation in 2022

In 2022, Ethereum will transition to Proof of Stake, which will bring in many advantages to the underlying network. The most notable are lower energy consumption, decentralization and scalability.

The change to the Proof of Stake will eliminate Ethereum’s mining and reduce the power consumption required to sustain the network. This change is expected to bring down the total energy level consumption by 99%. The change will also implement sharding and scalability that will lower the transaction costs of Ethereum.

Technical Indicators:

Ultimate oscillator: at 54.93 indicating a BUY

STOCH (9,6): at 66.95 indicating a BUY

Williams percent range: at -37.68 indicating a BUY

Average directional change (14-day): at 36.62 indicating a BUY

BTCUSD: Double Bottom Pattern Above $45,000

Bitcoin started this week on a bearish tone, and the price continued to slide touching a low of $45,725 on 3rd January, after which we can see some fresh buying in bitcoin markets globally.

Some pullback action can be observed in the European trading session today, and the prices of BTCUSD are ranging above the $46,000 handle.

We can clearly see a double bottom pattern above $45,000, which signifies the end of a downtrend and a shift towards an uptrend.

Both Stoch and StochRSI are indicating an OVERBOUGHT level, meaning that in the immediate short-term, a decline in the prices is expected.

With global cryptocurrency markets staging mixed trading signals we will have to wait before entering into any buying positions in bitcoin.

The relative strength index is at 52 indicating a NEUTRAL market and a move towards a market consolidation phase.

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

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

  • Bitcoin trend reversal is seen above $45,000
  • Williams percent range is indicating an OVERBOUGHT level
  • The price is now trading just above its pivot levels of $46,489
  • All moving averages are giving a NEUTRAL market signal

Bitcoin: Bullish Reversal Above $45,000 Confirmed
btc.png

Bitcoin is forming a bullish trend pattern which means that the prices can start moving upwards due to the buying pressure that is coming into the global cryptocurrency markets.

The moving averages are giving a NEUTRAL signal; however, we have detected a MA 20 crossover pattern which is an indication for the bullish reversal of the markets. This bullish trend is mild and will have to wait till we can see a STRONG BUY signal from the moving averages.

All of the major technical indicators are giving a STRONG BUY signal, which means that in the immediate short-term we are expecting targets of $47,000 and $48,000.

The price of BTCUSD is now facing its classic resistance level of $46,639 and Fibonacci resistance level of $46,731, after which the path towards $47,000 will get cleared.

In the last 24hrs, BTCUSD has gone DOWN by -1.01% with a price change of 477$, and has a 24hr trading volume of USD 34.438 billion. We can see an Increase of 19.26% in the trading volume as compared to yesterday. This increase is due to the increased buying pressure seen after the recent decline in bitcoin.

The Week Ahead

We can see that bitcoin has started its upside correction after the decline and continues to trade above $46,500.

The recent decline we saw from the high of $68,984 reached on 10th November, 2021, happened due to the profit taking and the market liquidation by big investors and the global hedge funds.

The downside wave correction now seems to be finally over and we are ready for an upswing move towards the $50,000 handle in January 2022.

The short-term outlook is positive; the medium to long-term outlook remains BULLISH for bitcoin with targets of $55,000 to $60,000 in 2022.

BTC Gains in 2021

In 2021, we saw a 66% gain in bitcoin, which was lower than Ethereum’s 421% jump.

In contrast, we saw a marginal decline in the value of gold without any gains, whereas the US S&P 500 saw gains of 31% during the same period.

Bitcoin still remains the topmost cryptocurrency of the world with a total market capitalization of 881.48 billion USD.

All Eyes On Friday’s US Jobs Report
nfp.jpg

Finally, we left 2021 behind, and the investing community is preparing for what the new year has in store for financial markets. Already, some important economic data is due out this week, despite some market participants still being on their winter break.

For example, banks in Europe, the UK, the US, and Canada are closed today. As such, volatility is likely to remain subdued and levels to hold. However, things are about to change as the market will build momentum towards the most important economic release of the week, the non-farm payrolls (NFP, or, alternatively, the jobs) report.

As a rule, NFP reports are released on the first Friday of the new month, and show the evolution of the US jobs market. Because the Federal Reserve of the US (aka the Fed) has job creation as part of its mandate, changes in the job market may affect the Fed’s interest rate decision

Both the number of jobs created and the unemployment rate are important for market participants, especially if they show that the Fed comes closer to its definition of full employment. If so, the US dollar should get a boost as inflation is already running well above the Fed’s definition of price stability.
nfp2.jpg

What do we expect of Friday’s release?

This Friday’s data will refer to December 2021, and the market expects the US economy to create 410k jobs, and the unemployment rate to further decline to 4.1%. The November data showed that the US economy added 210k new jobs, but the unemployment rate was affected by the fact that people have quit their jobs, giving the impression that the unemployment rate is low.

One interesting detail to watch out for is the labor force participation rate change. In November, it increased, but has remained well below its pre-pandemic level. High unemployment and aging numbers justify the decline partially, so more evidence is needed from future releases.

All in all, expect the price action to build momentum towards Friday’s release as more market participants become active.

AUD/USD Hourly Chart
AUDUSD-Chartx.jpg

However, the pair is facing resistance near the 0.7175 level. There is also a short-term breakout pattern forming with resistance near 0.7175 on the hourly chart of AUD/USD. The triangle resistance is near the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the 0.7272 swing high to 0.7146 low.

If there is a downside break below the 0.71350 support, the pair could extend its decline towards the 0.7120 level. Any more downsides might send the pair toward the 0.7100 level.

Japanese Yen a bastion of nation's stability.. or is it?
yn.jpg

Japan has for several decades been considered to be a shining light to the rest of the modern world.

Its technological prowess, civilized society and conservative, process-driven ideology have led it to become one of the most advanced nations on the planet, and for the Yen to be considered by many traders to be a safe Major Currency. A currency backed by Japan's diverse and sophisticated industry base.

The past forty years have demonstrated that Japan is a force to be reckoned with. It is an industrial giant, exporting its ultra-high tech electronics, cars, and science around the entire world and has a reputation for precision, engineering excellence and a degree of 'cool' that is apparent in every area of global society.

More recently, the Japanese economy has been bolstered by its government and population having not succumbed to the narrative relating to lockdowns and restrictions. Japan has remained open for business throughout the entire past 18 months, and with results which demonstrate its good decision-making.

However, as this week's trading begins, the Yen is continuing to fall against the US Dollar.

On Friday, January 7, 2022, Japan's Finance Minister Shunichi Suzuki spoke publicly about the need to stabilize the Yen and explained that he is watching the currency markets carefully due to the Yen's recent declines against the US Dollar.

The US Dollar has been accelerating in value compared to the Japanese Yen for quite some time now, and now stands at 115.66 Yen to the Dollar, meaning that the US Dollar is at its highest point against the Yen in over one year.

On Tuesday last week, the US Dollar hit a five-year high against the Yen with an exchange rate of 116.355 yen to one US Dollar after strengthening on expectations that the U.S. Federal Reserve will embark on steady interest rate increases while the Bank of Japan continued to keep interest rates low.

Another factor that has possibly contributed to an increasingly weak Yen is the increasing reliance on raw material imports by Japanese companies, and the difficulties associated with semi-conductor shortages which could have blighted Japanese engineering and electronics giants, however wholesale inflation is now hitting a record high and driving up the cost of living, which in major urban areas of Japan is among the highest in the world.

Currently, Japanese policymakers see little room to intervene in the currency market to attempt to stem the decline of the Yen against the US Dollar, however this decision has been met with some degree of public discourse given that Japan currently has a weakening economy, with competitiveness slipping and dire public finances.

Japan's government and central bank, both notoriously conservative and non-reactionary, have kept well away from intervening in the currency market since 2011 when horrendous natural disasters and the subsequent Fukushima nuclear crisis triggered volatility in the Yen.

Output is still relatively high, and it could be that local economists are relying on an uninterrupted industrial base to ride out the storm, and look toward the longer term rather than current situation.

Either way, the USDJPY pair remains an unusually volatile instrument in what is notoriously a stable major currency market which has been used to small movements for many years.

BTCUSD and XRPUSD Technical Analysis – 11th JAN 2022

BTCUSD: Double Bottom Pattern Above $40,000

Bitcoin could not sustain its bullish momentum and started to decline after touching a high of $47,527 on 3rd January due to the heavy selling pressure that was observed across global cryptocurrencies in the first week of 2022.

The price of BTCUSD broke the $40,000 handle yesterday, touching a low of $39,719 in the European trading session. Also today, we could see some pullback action in the European trading session, and the prices of BTCUSD are ranging above the $40,000 handle.

A double bottom pattern is clearly seen above $40,000, which signifies the end of a downtrend and a shift towards an uptrend.

Stoch is indicating an OVERBOUGHT market, so a decline is expected to occur in the immediate short-term.

The relative strength index is at 54, indicating a NEUTRAL market and a move towards a market consolidation phase.

Bitcoin is now moving above its 100 hourly simple moving average and below its 200 hourly exponential moving average.

The average true range is indicating a lesser market volatility, meaning that markets are due to enter into a consolidation phase.

  • Bitcoin trend reversal seen above $40,000
  • Williams percent range indicating an OVERBOUGHT level
  • The price is now trading below its pivot levels of $42,196
  • Most of the moving averages are giving a BUY market signal

Bitcoin: Bullish Reversal Above $40,000 Confirmed
btc.png

In today’s European trading session, bitcoin is forming a bullish reversal pattern as the prices continue to uptick.

The immediate short-term outlook for bitcoin is mildly bullish, the medium-term outlook is neutral, and the long-term outlook remains bullish.

All of the major technical Indicators are giving a STRONG BUY signal, which means that in the immediate short-term we should expect targets of $43,000 and $44,000.

The price of BTCUSD is now facing its classic resistance level of $42,294 and Fibonacci resistance level of $42,368, after which the path towards $43,000 will get cleared.

In the last 24hrs, BTCUSD has gone UP by 0.55% with a price change of 232$, and has a 24hr trading volume of USD 33.986 billion. We can see an Increase of 60.84% in the trading volume as compared to yesterday. This increase is happening thanks to the strengthened buying pressure seen after the recent bitcoin’s decline.

The Week Ahead

The price of bitcoin has already touched a 5-month low, sliding below the $40,000 handle. At the start of 2022, such a decline signifies a weaker demand for bitcoin from global investors.

We can see that the prices of BTCUSD have stabilized and are moving in a mildly bullish channel in the European trading session today.

If the prices continue to remain above the important support level of $42,000, we could see an upside correction towards $44,000 this week.

BTC declines more than 40% from 2021 highs

In November 2021, we saw bitcoin touched an all-time high of $68,984; looking at this year’s low of $39,719, we can see a decline by 42%. This also explains the highly volatile nature of bitcoin. Looking at these numbers, many investors are not willing to enter into bitcoin markets.

The above reasons also led to the decline in the total market capitalization of bitcoin to below 800 billion USD.

Technical Indicators:
