Weekly Fundamental Forecast for USD/CAD (based on the article)


USD/CAD - "CAD currently sits as one of the strongest currencies in G10FX alongside AUD that is working on its third weekly advance and NZD with a ~2.5% weekly appreciation. Given the commodity dollar-bloc strength, it’s fair to think that the momentum could continue, which would likely translate further into both technical and fundamental favor likely leading to further CAD strength. Thursday’s USD/CAD move brought the lowest price since October, and the previously mentioned momentum would favor continuation without a USD/CAD close above Wednesday’s high of 1.3293."

Weekly Fundamental Forecast for GOLD (XAU/USD) (based on the article)


GOLD (XAU/USD) - "Looking ahead to next week, traders will be eyeing inflation data out of the US with the December Consumer Price Index (CPI) slated for Wednesday. Consensus estimates are calling for an uptick in the headline print to 2.1% y/y from 1.7% y/y, with Core CPI (ex food & energy) widely expected to hold at 2.1% y/y. Look for stronger inflation data to stoke interest rate expectations on a beat with such a scenario likely to cap gold advances in the near-term. Note that Fed Fund Futures have seen a slight uptick across the board with markets now pricing a 70% probability for a June rate hike."

Weekly Fundamental Forecast for USD/CNH (based on the article)


USD/CNH - "Next week, Chinese President Xi will attend Davos’ Forum as the first Chinese president. When there is a major national event for China, Yuan volatility tends to drop, such as what was seen during the G20 meetings in China last September. Also, at the Davos’ meeting, President Xi may address major Chinese policies as well as comment on China’s global role, both worth keeping an eye on. Currently, the USD/CNH is waiting for justifications for a new trend; China’s economic outlook and policy in 2017 may provide more clues."

Time to sell Yahoo and buy Alibaba directly instead? (based on the article)

  • "Yahoo announced last week that it would be changing its name to Alibaba (upon completion of Verizon acquiring core Yahoo) seemingly to reflect the investment in Chinese giant Alibaba. However, the name change will only take effect if and only if Verizon goes through with the planned acquisition of core Yahoo."
  • "However, the question for existing shareholders is whether, even with a few modification (assuming a lower price), is Yahoo still worth staying invested in at current levels."

----------- 

The weekly share prices for Yahoo and Alibaba are having similar situation with the poerformance: the prices are located above Ichimoku cloud in the bullish area of the chart with the bullish trend to be resumed after the secondary correction which was started in September last year.

-----------

Yahoo 


If W1 price breaks 38.24 support level to below on close bar so the bearish reversal will be started.
If weekly price breaks 61.8% Fibo level at 42.36 to above on close bar so the bullish trend will be continuing with 44.91 target.
If not so the price will be on bullish ranging condition within with levels.

-----------

Alibaba


If W1 price breaks 86.01 support level to below on close bar so  the bearish reversal will be started.
If weekly price breaks 50.0% Fibo level at 97.93 to above on close bar so the bullish trend will be continuing with 109.76 target.
If not so the price will be on bullish ranging condition within with levels.

Netflix investors will get their first hints as to the company's long-term profit picture now that it is done expanding into new markets and finished pushing new pricing plans onto its U.S. members. Hastings and his team have been telling investors that they expect to start posting significant global earnings beginning in 2017, and this week, the company will finally back those words up with some hard numbers.

If a broker wants to mark up $10 commission on a trade, then a trader will see the commission charged, however in MetaTrader 5 the commission charge is combined within the floating profit & loss, therefore it is much more difficult for traders to realize the...
