Nikkei 225 - weekly breakdown with the bearish reversal (based on the article)

Nikkei 225 chart by Metatrader 5

  • "The Nikkei 225 fell very sharply though October, as did many other global indexes, as a wave of trade-inspired risk aversion took its toll. The Tokyo stock benchmark is now more than 2,500 points below its 2018 peak, which was the 24,441 reached on October 1. However, the point at which its fall has so far halted is an interesting one. The 20,767.6 level reached in intraday trade on October 29 and 26 is just about exactly the second, 28.3% Fibonacci retracement of the rise up to this year's highs from the lows of June 2016."
  • "That level has survived two downside tests in the past week and seems to be providing strong support.
    Still, the Nikkei remains under near-term pressure for as long as it remains within the daily chart downtrend channel which has contained trade on the way down from October's peaks."
  • "At present, it is threatening to break above it, but has yet to do so conclusively. If it can on a daily or weekly closing basis then the bulls can once again dream of consolidating within the old range shown on the chart above. From there they might be able to build a platform from which to take on those highs again."

GOLD (XAU/USD) - daily bullish ranging; weekly bear market rally to be started; 1,243 is the key (based on the article)

GOLD (XAU/USD) chart by Metatrader 5

  • "Today’s upside price move in gold, already up over $18 (+1.5%), sets up a real potential for a move to near $1300 before the end of November.  We have been advising our followers that a strong potential for an upside move in the precious metals markets was likely and that a potential move to above $1300 was in the works prior to the end of 2018."
  • "Global economic concerns and the fact that global central banks are accumulating physical gold are putting pricing pressures on Gold and many of the other precious metals.  This is a sleeper trade in many ways, the US equity markets and the US Dollar are much stronger than many expected.  A true capital shift is taking place throughout the globe at the moment and many foreign nations and central banks are hedging risk by accumulating physical gold.  When the price of Gold does really start to move higher, it could be an explosive move to the upside – just like what happened back in 2005~2008 and 2009~2012."
  • "Our predictive modeling systems are suggesting Gold could rally to above $1500 /oz in 2019 and we believe the current price levels are a gift for traders.  Sub $1300 price levels may be the lowest prices we see for quite a while – don’t miss this opportunity to position your portfolio for this next move."

Apple - daily ranging to bullish; weekly ranging bullish; 233 is the key (based on the article)

Apple share weekly price by Metatrader 5

  • "Apple is the latest big tech stock to get smacked after reporting earnings. Shares of Apple plunged 7% in after-hours trading after the company beat on both the top and bottom line. The tech giant reported revenue of $62.9 billion and $2.91 per share in profit last quarter, beating expectations of $61.41 billion and $2.79, respectively."
  • "Apple also beat the so-called whisper number of $2.90 per share but the stock is down because the company lowered guidance for the busy Q4 holiday shopping season and cited soft demand from emerging markets."
  • "We are entering the busy Q4 holiday shopping season but the company lowered guidance and that hurt the stock. Tim Cook, Apple's CEO, said he is "seeing some macroeconomic weakness in some of the emerging markets," without specifying which ones. Tim Cook also emphasized that Apple was happy with its performance in China, where revenue grew 16 percent to $11.4 billion. That was the fifth consecutive quarter of growth where the company enjoyed double-digit growth in China."

AUD/USD Intra-Day Fundamentals: Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) Interest Rate Decision, RBA Rate Statement and range price movement 

2018-11-06 03:30 GMT | [AUD - Cash Rate]

  • past data is 1.50%
  • forecast data is 1.50%
  • actual data is 1.50% according to the latest press release

if actual > forecast (or previous good for currency (for AUD in our case)

[AUD - Cash Rate] = Interest rate charged on overnight loans between financial intermediaries. 

==========

From official report :

  • "At its meeting today, the Board decided to leave the cash rate unchanged at 1.50 per cent."
  • "The Australian economy is performing well. Over the past year, GDP increased by 3.4 per cent and the unemployment rate declined to 5 per cent, the lowest in six years. The forecasts for economic growth in 2018 and 2019 have been revised up a little. The central scenario is for GDP growth to average around 3½ per cent over these two years, before slowing in 2020 due to slower growth in exports of resources. Business conditions are positive and non-mining business investment is expected to increase. Higher levels of public infrastructure investment are also supporting the economy, as is growth in resource exports. One continuing source of uncertainty is the outlook for household consumption. Growth in household income remains low, debt levels are high and some asset prices have declined. The drought has led to difficult conditions in parts of the farm sector."
  • "Inflation remains low and stable. Over the past year, CPI inflation was 1.9 per cent and, in underlying terms, inflation was 1¾ per cent. These outcomes were in line with the Bank's expectations and were influenced by declines in some administered prices due to changes in government policies. Inflation is expected to pick up over the next couple of years, with the pick-up likely to be gradual. The central scenario is for inflation to be 2¼ per cent in 2019 and a bit higher in the following year."

Crude Oil - weekly breakdown; monthly ranging to the bearish reversal; 63.17 is the key (based on the article)

Weekly price is on bullish breakdown with the possible bearish reversal: the price is breaking 70.28 support level to below for ranging market condition to be started. The price is breaking Senkou Span A line to go to inside Ichimoku cloud for the ranging market condition.
if the price breaks key support level at 63.17 on close weekly bar so the bearish reversal will be finished and we will see the bearish market condition to be established for Brent Crude Oil in the medium-term situation.

Long-term (MN1)/medium-term (W1) analysis: watch the price to cross 63.17 support level to below for the bearish market condition to be reversed, otherwise - the price will be on the randing condition within Ichimoku cloud.

Crude Oil Weekly Ichimoku chart by Metatrader 5

  • "The long-term trend in oil is down and it has been since the pre-recession peak up near 150 in early 2008. Since then, it's been unable to move higher than that top. The direction of the line connecting that 2008 peak with the lower 2013/2014 peaks is unmistakably downward."
  • "The uptrend line connecting the low in 2016 to the 2017 low has been broken. Oil has closed below that trend line for 2 weeks in a row now -- and it's back inside the Ichimoku cloud range."
  • "It's that unrelenting selling, day after day, in October that's reversed the weekly trend and has reverted price direction back to the longer-term pattern seen on the monthly chart."

Crude Oil - Will Oil Find Support Near $60? (based on the article)

Crude Oil Weekly AscTrend Ichimoku chart by Metatrader 5

  • "We believe the support near $65, although clearly broken, may eventually become resistance for a future upside price move. Our proprietary Fibonacci price modeling system is suggesting a new target near $52~53 and we believe this downside move in Oil is far from over at this point."
  • "The current global climate for Oil is that suppliers are pumping more and more oil into the market at a time when, historically, prices should continue to decline. One of our research tools includes the ability to identify overall bias models for each week, month or quarter. Historically, Oil is dramatically weaker in the month of November and relatively flat for the month of December."

Here we are with a price below that level and many are asking “where will it go from here?”. We believe...
