Crypto News - Bitcoin may finally be reaching the bottom of its bear run (based on the article)


  • "To cryptocurrency enthusiasts, this might come as a welcome hypothesis—with Bitcoin hitting a 50-day low today at $6,630 USD—though Godbole indicates that it's probably going to get worse before it gets better, speculating that BTC will fall in the $6,600-$6,000 range over the weekend."
  • "BTC tends to reverse course every time the relative strength index (RSI) drops to or below 30.00, according to historical data.... As of writing, the relative strength index is close to that mark, at 32.00."

USD/CNH Intra-Day Fundamentals: Caixin Manufacturing PMI and range price movement 

2018-04-02 02:45 GMT | [CNY - Caixin Manufacturing PMI]

  • past data is 51.6
  • forecast data is 51.8
  • actual data is 51.0 according to the latest press release

if actual > forecast (or previous one) = good for currency (for CNY in our case)

[CNY - Caixin Manufacturing PMI] = Level of a diffusion index based on surveyed purchasing managers in the manufacturing industry.

==========

From official report :

  • "Chinese manufacturing companies signalled only a marginal improvement in overall operating conditions at the end of the first quarter. Production and total new orders both expanded at the weakest rates for four months, while export sales increased only marginally. At the same time, staff numbers declined at the quickest pace since last August amid reports of costcutting plans. Overall inflationary pressures meanwhile cooled further, with input costs increasing at the slowest rate for nine months, while firms raised their selling prices only modestly. Encouragingly, confidence towards growth prospects improved to a one-year high amid forecasts of greater investment and expectations of better market conditions."
  • "Adjusted for seasonal factors, the headline Purchasing Managers’ Index™ (PMI™) – a composite indicator designed to provide a singlefigure snapshot of operating conditions in the manufacturing economy – posted 51.0 in March, down from 51.6 in February. Although the reading signalled a further improvement in the health of the sector, the latest upturn was only slight and the weakest recorded since last November."

Nikkei 225 - daily rally to bullish reversal (based on the article)

Daily price is testing resistance level at 21,630 to above for bullish reversal to be started on the secondary ranging way.

Nikkei 225

  • "The Nikkei 225 has bounced quite convincingly back above a range of support which seems quite formidable once more.
    It comes in between the intraday low of February 9, which was 20,533, and the closing low of March 2 at 21,023. Now admittedly the index has been below that range recently. But it didn’t stay there for long. Moreover, it’s worth noting in passing that the range base, 20,533, is just above exactly on the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement on the Nikkei’s long rise up from the lows of mid-April, 2018 to the 26-year peaks of 2018. The heavy global falls of March 22 and 23 took the Nikkei down below that, but it had come back above the range top within four days."
  • "Ever since that top has provided support, notably on Wednesday of this week when the intraday low was marked exactly there. Recent gains have seen Nikkei bulls attempt to get back toward recent highs, made in mid-March. So far they’ve been only partially successful at this however. They’ve taken the index back to March 20’s 21,453, but have been unable to push on towards that peak, which was March 13’s 22,080."
