FTSE 100 daily Ichimoku chart by Metatrader 5

  • "Lacking notable upward momentum in the FTSE 100 stalls having failed to break above the 2016 lows. Consequently, the FTSE 100 remains at risk of a test of the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement with a closing break below opening room for a move towards the psychological 5000 level."

EUR/USD Intra-Day Fundamentals: European Central Bank (ECB) Monetary Policy Meeting Accounts

2020-04-09 12:30 GMT | [EUR - ECB Monetary Policy Meeting Accounts]

if actual > forecast (or previous value) = good for currency (for EUR in our case)

[EUR - ECB Monetary Policy Meeting Accounts] = More hawkish than expected is good for currency.

==========

From official report :

  • "The President started the meeting by observing that, while the policy measures taken by the Governing Council at its monetary policy meeting on 11-12 March 2020 had been well calibrated at the time, the scale of the challenges faced had been highly uncertain. Meanwhile, the situation had deteriorated significantly, with nearly all euro area countries in full containment mode owing to the rapid spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19). The situation was unprecedented and the repercussions were also impossible to forecast accurately. Uncertainty on the economic front was creating severe strains in the financial markets, while the message that, first and foremost, fiscal support was required had been well understood, and many governments had already responded. Faced with the risk of the ECB’s monetary policy transmission becoming significantly impaired, there was an urgent need for the Governing Council to reassess its policy stance and instruments to address the economic consequences of the evolving coronavirus pandemic."

Crypto News - Bitcoin: ranging near bullish reversal; 7458 is the daily key and 9172 is the weekly key for the bullish trend to be started (based on the article)

Bitcoin/USD daily Brainwashing/Ichimoku chart by Metatrader 5

Bitcoin/USD Brainwashing/Ichimoku weekly chart by Metatrader 5

  • "Bitcoin has held up better than many stocks, but has fared less well than many other assets that can protect portfolios at times of market stress. For the year to date, Bitcoin has fallen 5%. That’s much better than the S&P 500 which is off 14% for the year. Nonetheless, other assets that can offer safe haven at a time of crisis have risen. For example gold is up 11% and a diversified portfolio of bonds is up 4%."
  • "Hence if you view Bitcoin as a sophisticated digital form of gold, it hasn’t quite played out that way during this crisis so far. However, we should note that we may still be early in seeing the full economic impact of COVID-19. As such it’s hard to reach a conclusive verdict until the economic impact has played out in full. Ideally, you’d want to look across multiple economic cycles too, though since Bitcoin is a relatively young asset, this is not possible."
  • "Furthermore, though on a near term view Bitcoin hasn’t done what many other safe haven assets have done, it is of course noteworthy that on a 5-year view Bitcoin’s return still dwarfs just about any other major asset class because Bitcoin has risen over 30-fold over that period."

Some argue that Bitcoin is potentially a robust defensive asset, somewhat like gold. This is Bitcoin’s first major U.S. recession, when these sorts of assets can do well. How is it doing? So far its performance has been mixed. Bitcoin has held up better than many stocks, but has fared less well than many other assets that can protect portfolios...

Facebook share - weekly breakout with the bullish reversal; 197 is the key (based on the article)

Facebook share price by Metatrader 5

  • "Facebook, Google and Twitter have warned that Q1 is going to be lower than originally forecast. Media analysts have also weighed in with a consensus that ad demand will be weakened this year. Meanwhile, little has been provided for future guidance, which will test the belief that the effects of the Coronavirus has been priced in."
  • "Usage across mobile and over-the-top television has been skyrocketing. Facebook reported an increase of 50% in messaging in countries where the coronavirus was hit the hardest. In Italy, there was 70% more time spent across apps. This was reported on March 24th and one can only imagine what the United States’ usage has been over the past few weeks as some of this usage falls into the second quarter. Group calling increased over 1,000% - which is no surprise for anyone work-from-home trends."

Google - weekly bounced from 200 SMA to above to the bullish trend to be resumed; 1,408/1,424 are the keys with 1,530 as a target (based on the article)

Google share weekly chart by Metatrader 5

  • "Facebook, Google and Twitter have warned that Q1 is going to be lower than originally forecast."
  • ''Cowen & Company estimates Google and Facebook will see “$44 billion in worldwide ad revenue evaporate.” This reflects a 18% decline in revenue for Google and a decline of 19% for Facebook compared to Cowen’s previous forecast. Cowen believes the ad business will bounce back in 2021. In a trickle-down effect, Cowen predicts Twitter will also see a decline of 18% and Snap a decline of 30%. If Cowen’s forecasts are correct, this will be the first time that Google and Facebook will report negative revenue year-over-year since the companies were founded in 2001 and 2004, respectively. Google’s annual revenue last year was $160.7 billion with Cowen currently forecasting $127.5 billion this year in revenue. Facebook’s revenue last year was $69.66 billion with Cowen forecasting $67.8 billion for the upcoming year."

  • "On Wall Street, the S&P 500 wrapped up its best week since 1974 as it climbed 12.10%. Granted, the Good Friday holiday shortened the time period. Optimism in financial markets meant the haven-linked US Dollar and similarly-behaving Japanese Yen were under pressure. This is as the growth-oriented Australian Dollar outperformed.
