EUR/USD - bearish reversal (based on the article)

EUR/USD chart by Metatrader 5

  • "Choppy, contracting price action (wedge/triangle building) can put a trader's patience to the test. The choppier it gets the closer we are to making a material move. The chart pattern currently under construction is coming around nicely with price moving towards the apex."
  • "Symmetrical triangle or descending wedge? Does it matter? Not really. As it stands now it is taking on the shape of a symmetrical triangle, but should we see a break of the 7/19 low (11575), we will likely be looking at a run on the 11500-level. With another hold of this key level, the symmetrical triangle could shape-shift into a descending wedge."
  • "Overall, the days ahead may hold more of the same uninspiring price action. If you are fading levels for scalps, then there is support and resistance to play off. For those looking for a breakout, patience will likely serve you well."

Crypto News - Bitcoin:  daily bullish ranging; 8,479 resistance is the key (based on the article)

Bitcoin chart by Metatrader 5

  • "The price of bitcoin surged above $8,000 last Tuesday for the first time since May after the Group of 20 (G20) meeting in Argentina concluded with little urgency to take regulatory action on cryptocurrencies. In a communiqué, G20 finance ministers and central bank governors expressed confidence that the technology underlying alt-coins “can deliver significant benefits to the financial system and the broader economy.” Many of these benefits were discussed in my interview with Marco Streng, cofounder of Genesis Mining, the world’s largest cloud bitcoin mining company. Genesis had a huge win last week as securities regulators in South Carolina dismissed their cease-and-desist orders from March. The move, according to CoinDesk, marks the first time the state dropped such orders against a blockchain startup."
  • "Keep in mind, though, that we’re still very early in crypto investing. It was only 10 years ago that the mysterious Satoshi Nakamoto wrote the now-famous whitepaper that led to the creation of bitcoin. Volatility is still roughly six times as high as large-cap stocks and gold in a single trading session, and 11 times as high in the 10-day period. As I told Market One Media recently, the space remains speculative, but there are opportunities for tremendous upside."

Twitter - weekly bullish to be resumed; 33.90 is the key (based on the article)

Twitter share price chart by Metatrader 5

  • "Twitter announced its second quarter results on Friday, July 27, reporting a 24% increase in net revenues to $711 million. Revenue growth was ahead of market expectations as well as our expectations. In addition, its adjusted EBITDA margin expanded by over 6 percentage points over Q2’17 to 37.3% for the quarter. Resulting net income and EPS beat consensus at $134 million and $0.17, respectively."
  • "Despite strong financial results, Twitter’s stock plummeted 20% on Friday to $34 due to a slowdown in user growth. Its total monthly active users (MAUs) were up 3% on y-o-y basis to 335 million for the quarter, but saw a 0.3% decline on a sequential basis. Twitter’s resulting implied revenue per user for the quarter stood at $2.10 for the quarter (or $8.40 on an annualized basis), up from $1.75 in the year ago period."
  • "For the full year, Twitter expects a mid-single digit sequential decline in MAUs through Q3 due to three key factors. Firstly, the company’s decision to no longer renew paid SMS carrier relationships in some markets could impact near term growth. Secondly, the company’s added focus on complying with the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation could have an impact. And lastly, the company is increasingly focused on improving the health of the platform by removing fake news, hate speech and other such areas, which may take a toll on near-term metrics."

Difference Between Dow, Nasdaq and S&P 500 (based on the article)

In the U.S., market participants focus the majority of their attention on three indices – S&P 500, Dow Jones Industrial Average, and Nasdaq 100. These indices are of course highly correlated to one another as they track companies impacted by the same business cycle and other important macroeconomic factors.

Additionally, there is some cross-over in the stocks that are included in the ‘big three’. For example, the technology giant Apple Inc. (AAPL) is a constituent included in all three. However, there are big differences between the Dow and Nasdaq and S&P 500 - such as the number and type of stocks included in each index and how index values are calculated.

How is the Dow Jones, Nasdaq, and S&P 500 Calculated?

The S&P 500, created by Standard & Poor’s in 1962, represents the broadest measure of the U.S. economy among the three major indices. The index value is calculated by weighting each company according to its market capitalization and then a divisor, which is set by S&P, is applied to produce the final value. The simple calculation is as such: sum of the market cap of all stocks included divided by the divisor, or total market cap / divisor. 

S&P 500


The Dow Jones Industrial Average, often referred to in short as the ‘Dow’, is the oldest index, dating back to 1896 and is the most globally well known. The Dow represents 30 large cap stocks as determined by the Wall Street Journal. Unlike the S&P 500 and the Nasdaq 100, the weighting for each component in the Dow Jones Industrial Average is ranked by share price, and then a divisor applied to create the final value.

Dow Jones Industrial Average


The Nasdaq 100 is the youngest of the three indices having begun trading in 1985. It represents the largest non-financial companies listed on the Nasdaq exchange and is generally regarded as a technology index given the heavy weighting given to tech-based companies. The Nasdaq 100 is based on the market capitalization of its components.

Nasdaq 100

Trading Differences Between Dow Jones, S&P 500 and Nasdaq

Despite the tight correlation between the major U.S. indices, they each have their own ‘personalities’ in how they trade due to the differing make-up for each index and importance of certain companies and groups of companies (sectors). The S&P 500 is the least impacted from day-to-day by any single one stock given it is comprised of so many names. With that said, there are a handful of sectors which have the most importance on the index.

Crypto News - Bitcoin price forecast in 2020 - from $55,931 to $2352 (based on the article)

Bitcoin price forecast in 2020

  • Bullish forecast - "Bitcoin price volatility is just “noise” which makes it hard to see the position the digital currency will be in, let’s say, years from now. To figure that out, my student Greg Giordano and I have been doing some econometric work lately. Greg ran two econometric models, the Haye’s model and the Wheatley models—see table 3. On the one side, the Haye’s model predicts a price of $55,931.60. That’s a very bullish forecast. For a good reason: it focuses on the supply side of the Bitcoin market, which is expected to grow at an ever-slower pace, as it gets closer to the limit."
  • Bearish forecast - "On the other side, the Wheatley model predicts a price of $2352.03. That’s a very bearish forecast -- for a good reason, too. The model focuses on the Bitcoin use, that is, on the demand side of the Bitcoin market. And Bitcoin demand has been growing slowly, as evidenced by a recent Gallup survey."

From official report :

  • "The low level of interest rates is continuing to support the Australian economy. Further progress in reducing unemployment and having inflation return to target is expected, although this progress is likely to be gradual. Taking account of the available information, the Board judged that holding the stance of monetary policy unchanged at this meeting would be consistent with sustainable growth in the economy and achieving the inflation target over time."

  • "Wall Street is working on a new platform which will ease the trading, storing and spending digital assets. That’s bullish for bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. It will help them gain acceptance among investors, merchants and consumers."
  • "Last week, Intercontinental Exchange (ICE) announced plans to form a new company, Bakkt, with the purpose to create an open and regulated global ecosystem for digital assets. The new company is expected to work with a marquee group of organizations that includes BCG, Microsoft, Starbucks and others to come up with an integrated platform that will ease the trading, storing and spending of digital assets. That’s good news for bitcoin bulls, as an “epidemic” means higher bitcoin prices, especially since bitcoin is in limited supply, provided that big governments, big banks, and hackers do not spoil the party."
