Bitcoin - Bearish Breakdown (based on the article)

BitCoin (BTC/USD) weekly Ichimoku chart by Metatrader 5

  • "Bitcoin prices dropped significantly today, falling below $5,400 and reaching their lowest since late last year. The digital currency declined to as little as $5,390.12, losing more than 10% in the space of 24 hours and hitting a fresh 2018 low."
  • "This downward movement took place as the broader cryptocurrency market also suffered notable losses, declining from a total value of $210 billion earlier in the day to almost $180 billion by roughly 15:30 UTC (approximately 10:30 a.m. ET)."
  • "When explaining what caused the sharp decline in bitcoin prices, analysts generally pointed to either technical analysis or the uncertainty surrounding the upcoming hard fork in bitcoin cash."

EUR/USD - long-term downtrend to be started (based on the article)

EUR/USD Monthly Chart by Metatrader 5

  • "October ended with the Euro seemingly set to suffer deeper losses against the US Dollar. A look at the monthly chart reveals prices breached range top resistance-turned-support centered around the 1.15 figure – a pivotal inflection point since May 2015 – to suggest that a move toward a four-year range floor near 1.05 may well be in the cards in the months ahead."
  • "The bearish bias remains upon examination of more actionable positioning on the daily chart, but the setup is far less immediately actionable than it might seem at first glance. Prices are resting resistance guiding the downswing from the downswing started in late September. It is thus far unclear whether this barrier will hold and bearish is resumption is to follow or if a breakout will precede a larger upside retracement."
  • "Resistance is now at 1.1432, with a break above that confirmed on a daily closing basis opening the door for a test of the 1.1543-54 inflection region. Alternatively, a turn back below the 1.1279-1.1314 zone paves the way for a challenge of the swing low at 1.1218. The absence of a bearish reversal signal or a clear-cut break makes it unclear which scenario might prevail however."

Most volatile currency pairs (based on the article)

  • "FX markets are susceptible to a range of factors which affect their volatility, and many traders look to tailor their strategies to capitalize on the most volatile currency pairs."
  • "Volatility, usually measured using the standard deviation or variance of a currency, gives traders an expectation of how much a currency can deviate from its current price over a certain period. The higher the volatility of the currency, the higher the risk. Volatility and risk are usually used as interchangeable terms."
  • "Different currency pairs have different volatilities. The major currency pairs like the EUR/USD, USD/JPY, GBP/USD and USD/CHF generally have less volatility than the emerging market currency pairs like the USD/ZAR, USD/KRW and USD/BRL. Normally, more liquid currency pairs have less volatility."

most volatile currency pairs

  • "Among the major currency pairs, the AUD/JPY, NZD/JPY and AUD/USD are currently the most volatile."
  • "The USD/ZAR, USD/KRW, USD/BRL and other emerging market currencies pairs tend to be highly volatile due to their low liquidity and because of the risk that is inherent in emerging market economies."

FAANG Stocks - Facebook, Apple, Amazon, Netflix, and Alphabet’s Google (based on the article)

FAANG is an acronym, which stands for the first letters of the five companies Facebook, Apple, Amazon, Netflix, and Alphabet’s Google. These five companies have not only been some of the best-performing large-cap stocks over recent years (although Netflix only qualified as large-cap in 2013, when its capitalization consolidated above the $10 billion threshold), they have defined a zeitgeist, led a roaring bull market, and changed the way many of us live, at least in the world’s more economically developed countries.

Facebook

  • "Facebook has been one of the worst performers in the tech correction. The monthly cycle points to a low in the coming week. This is a bit difficult to accept because none of the other FANG stocks are projected to bottom. And, only ten of the last sixteen buys have succeeded over the last two years. The $970-$980 area is the 38.2% retracement level of the prior rally. If this price level holds, Facebook may be at a low."

Apple

Apple share price by Metatrader 5

  • "Apple has not responded to its last buy signal. There is a mid-December sell signal and an indication of a firmer low in mid-February. Relative strength hit a new low last week, a bearish development. All of the monthly buy signals in the last year have been successful. But I must point out that Apple, like the other FANG equities, have been in longer-term bull markets so this excellent percentage is not a surprise and is unlikely to be as high in the coming year."

Alphabet’s Google

Alphabet share price by Metatrader 5

  • "Google (Alphabet) shows a mid-December buy signal followed by another decline. A more significant bottom is due in late February. Four of five monthly buy signals have been profitable over the last year. The downside retracement levels are $970 and $870."

Intra-Day Fundamentals - Dollar Index (DXY) and GOLD (XAU/USD)Fed Chair Powell Speech

2018-11-28 17:00 GMT | [USD - Fed Chair Powell Speaks]

[USD - Fed Chair Powell Speaks] = Speech titled "The Federal Reserve's Framework for Monitoring Financial Stability" at The Economic Club of New York.

==========

From forbes article :

  • "Stocks surged after Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell delivered a speech to the Economic Club of New York on November 28, 2018, where he introduced the Fed’s Financial Stability Report, inspired by and modeled after the European Central Bank’s Financial Stability Review. The market became wildly enthusiastic when, a few minutes into the speech, he stated that interest rates “remain just below the broad range of estimates of the level that would be neutral”. Everyone interpreted this sentence as a signal that the Fed may be very close to the end of the tightening cycle. This immediately sparked a stock rally. But that was not the most important point of his speech. It was his recognition that “things often turn out to be quite different from even the most careful forecasts.” For that reason, he explained, any forecast to make policy has to be accompanied by recognizing and managing potential risks. While he did not mention “unknown unknowns” as former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld famously did in 2002, he listed four known risks the Fed is currently watching (and that the Financial Stability Report explores in depth). He quickly dispatched most of them, saying that the Fed does not think the financial sector has too much leverage or could run out of funding, or that there are any obvious bubbles in asset prices."
