Weak NFP Report Responsible for USD Bullish Trend Reversal

fed.jpg

The U.S. dollar traded with a bullish tone since the start of the trading year. While the move higher is not visible on all markets, the most relevant is the EURUSD as the pair eased from 1.23 to 1.20 in less than a month. Because the Euro has the bigger weight in the dollar index, it led to the dollar rallying against other currencies and even against gold.

However, last Friday the USD reversed course. The February NFP report showed that the U.S. economy added 49k jobs in January. While that was positive, as well as the fact that the unemployment rate dropped to 6.3%, the market sold the USD because the December data was revised lower.

BTC and XRP – Bullish momentum confirmed

btc-xrp.jpg

BTC/USD

The price of Bitcoin has broken out from its prior resistance and impulsively came to $48,200 at its highest point today. From its lowest point on Sunda when it was sitting around $37,430, this is an increase of 28%. Currently, a minor retracement is being made with the price sitting at $46,604 but is still in an upward trajectoty.

btcusd-1h-1.png

This breakout indicates that the prior correctional formation from the 10th of January has ended and now we have a clear confirmation with the bullish momentum indicating a strong uptrend continuation. After the five-wave move inside the ascending channel was ended we have seen a minor pullback but an immediate breakout to the upside. This was most likely the 3rd sub-wave of the higher degree 3rd wave which is why further upside movement would now be expected.

As the price is to develop its five-wave pattern further higher highs could be seen in the upcoming days with potentially exceeding the $60,000 mark by the end of its development. However not that an impulsive breakout has seen a local correction might form as the 4th wave should develop before further upside. It is still unclear where the 4th wave could land but most likely we are going to see a retest of the prior all-time high before uptrend continuation.

EUR/USD Technical Analysis
eurusd-chart-1.png

This past week, the Euro declined below the 1.2050 and 1.2000 support levels against the US Dollar. The EUR/USD pair traded close to the 1.1950 zone, where it found support.

A low was formed near 1.1952 on FXOpen before the pair started a fresh increase. It climbed back above the 1.2000 level and the 50 hourly simple moving average. There was also a break above the 50% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the 1.2155 swing high to 1.1952 low.

It is now trading above the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the 1.2155 swing high to 1.1952 low. There is also a key bullish trend line forming with support near 1.2100 on the hourly chart of EUR/USD.

An immediate resistance is near the 1.2120 level. The main resistance is near the 1.2155, above which EUR/USD is likely to accelerate higher towards the 1.2200 resistance area.

Conversely, the pair could start a fresh decline below the 1.2100 support and the trend line. The first major support is near the 1.2075 level and the 50 hourly simple moving average.

If there is a downside break below the 50 hourly simple moving average, the pair could dive towards the 1.2000 handle in the near term. Any more losses might call for a retest of the 1.1950 support level.

LTC and EOS – Resistance seen but for how long?

ltc-1.jpg

LTC/USD

The price of Litecoin has been increasing in the past week, and from last Thursday when it was sitting at $141.27 at its lowest, we have seen an increase of 37.8$ measured to its highest point yesterday at $194.31. Since then the price made a pullback to $170.54 but is again back in an upward trajectory, currently sitting at $188.
ltcusd-1h-1.png

On the hourly chart, we can see that the price broke the prior high made on the 10th of January when the price of Litecoin was sitting at $185.58. This confirmed the impulsiveness behind the move and that the previous correction ended at $118. We have seen the development of the 3rd sub-wave of the higher degree impulse which is why further upside would be expected. However if yesterday’s high was the end of the 3rd wave, now the price might be set for a local correction.

Wave 4 should develop optimally to the 0.382 Fibonacci level which would bring the price of Litecoin to $165. But when the price tested prior resistance for support and confirms the bullish interest it is likely to continue moving past yesterday’s high and end around $230 before the completion of this five-wave move.

Equity Indices Remain Bid as America Awaits New Fiscal Stimulus

dj.jpg

Last week brought little or no movements on the financial markets. The VIX index, which measures volatility, dropped to levels not seen so far during the pandemic.

The lack of important economic data contributed to this environment. With a few exceptions, like the CPI or the inflation data in the United States, all other data was second- or third-tier. Effectively, it means that the focus was on the stock market’s price action. This week will likely be the same as it starts with a holiday (i.e., Presidents’ Day in the United States) and no important data until next Friday when the European PMIs are released.

BTC and XRP – New highs expected

btc.jpg

BTC/USD

The price of Bitcoin has continued its upward trajectory from last Monday and came up from $37,691 at its lowest point to $49,808 at its highest point on Sunday which was an increase of 32.15%. From Sunday’s high, we have seen a pullback to the $46,000 zone but the price is now once again in an upward trajectory. Currently, it is sitting just slightly above $49,000 mark and is testing its horizontal resistance.

btcusd-1h-2.png

On the hourly chart, you can see that this rise is the next developing 5th wave from the higher degree impulse and from the lower degree one as well. This is why further upside would be expected but is most likely the ending wave from the rise that started on the 27th of January.

The price has been forming an ascending triangle from the 9th of February when the 3rd impulse wave was formed out of the lower degree. Now as the price has reached the apex of the triangle and then retraced back it appears that it made the completion of the 4th wave corrective structure.

If this is true now another impulse to the upside has started with the price leading towards a new all-time high, potentially above $52,000.

LTC and EOS – Correction soon to come?

ltc-1.jpg

LTC/USD

The price of Litecoin continued increasing since last week. From its lowest point last Thursday when it was sitting at $175.78 we have seen an increase of 36.57% measured to its highest point today at $240. Currently, it is being traded just below $230, but the price is in an upward trajectory overall.

ltcusd-1h-2.png

Looking at the hourly chart, you can see that the price of Litecoin was in an upward trajectory from the 27th of January when it made the second test of the horizontal support level which was the lower level of the descending triangle in which it was correcting.  As a breakout was made in early February it set the price for a higher high than in January. This is the development of the next five-wave move to the upside.

There is still more room to go before the end of this five-wave impulse but it is still unclear where the price increase could end. If the 3rd wave ended on the $194.31 level then currently we are seeing the development of the final wave’s 3rd sub-wave. In that case, another leg up would be expected of the lower degree. But if the 3rd wave of the higher degree count ended on yesterday’s high, then the price of Litecoin has more increasing potential.

Bitcoin Surge Continues as More Institutional Investors Turn to Digital Assets

btc.jpg

The price of Bitcoin reached $57,000 over the weekend. The extent of the current bull run is so aggressive that earlier forecasts that Bitcoin will reach 200k and more in less than a year do not sound improbable anymore.

If that is going to be the case, it remains to be seen. What is important now is that the price of Bitcoin is disconnected completely from reality in the sense that the technology itself has no use and that the asset is purely speculative.

Why Do People Turn to Cryptocurrencies?

Distrust in the financial system appears to be the main reason. People are sick-entire of the same old “medicine” applied to broken economies (i.e., printing more money to solve for either excessive debt or economic recessions.

And they are right. Unfortunately, so are the policymakers. No one wished for two economic recessions less than ten years apart, but here we are. Moreover, the current one is far more impactful when compared to the 2008-2009 Great Financial Crisis for the simple reason that the health crisis affected the entire world and not just parts of it.

BTC and XRP – Correction or the end of the increase altogether?

btc-xrp.jpg

BTC/USD

From its all-time high at $58,360, the price of Bitcoin has made a decrease of 22.8% today as it fell to $45,058 at its lowest spike. Currently, it is being traded at $47,251 and the price is in a steep downward trajectory.

btcusd-1h-3.png

Looking at the hourly chart, we can see that the price ended its 3rd wave out of the impulse that started on the 27th of January. This is why the seen decrease is still considered correctional in nature but is still unclear where this downfall could end. If this is the developing 4th wave would have seen its first sub-wave which is why now a short-term recovery would be expected.

But after a short-term recovery, we can see its 3rd sub-wave making a lower low, potentially somewhere around its all-time high of $40,000. But if the price goes to those levels it could indicate the possibility that the upward move has ended altogether.  If this is true then we have seen the completion of the five-wave impulse at the $58,000 area in which case now a longer-term correction could play out.

For the signs of confirmation, we are going to look at what happens at the current levels as if this is the 4th wave the price should start an immediate recovery. But if it continues moving to the downside further in a straight line the second scenario would look more likely.
