      MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 12th December 2018.



      FX News Today USDJPY has posted a nine-day high of 113.51, in what is a second consecutive day of gains. AUDJPY has concurrently printed a six-day high, while EURJPYand other Yen crosses have seen intraday strength. A revival in risk appetite in global markets has seen the some of the Yen’s safe haven premium unwind. 10-year Treasury yields are up 1.1 bp at 2.89% while 10-year JGB yields gained 0.8 bp and are at 0.045%, as stock markets rallied across Asia. Topix and Nikkei rallied 1.99% and 2.15% respectively, the Hang Seng gained 1.72%, Shanghai and Shenzhen Comp managed gains of 0.41% and 0.35% respectively and the ASX rose 1.39%. Markets in India, hit by the shock resignation of the central bank president yesterday, recovered after an ally of PM Narenda Modi took over. US stock futures are also broadly higher, led by a 0.9% rise in the NASDAQfutures and European stock futures are also moving up. Oil prices are trading at USD 52.32. News that Canada granted bail to Huawei’s CFO, arrested for extradition to the US, helped to ease tension outside of China. Trump sparked a risk-on turn after saying in an interview with Reuters that talks were ensuing with Beijing by phone, and that he would not raise tariffs on Chinese imports until he was sure about a deal. He also said that he could intervene in the case of the detained Huawei CFO if it would benefit US national security or help secure a trade deal with China and was ready to meet with President Xi Jinping. After signals that China may cut tariffs on auto imports, more positive signs are recorded on global trade tensions. Trump also added that it would be “foolish” for the Fed to hike rates at its policy meeting next week. Charts of the Day

In the last 48 hours, the price of Bitcoin had been in the bearish trend zone. The crypto's price had been fluctuating above the $3,400 price level. It was suggested that if the bears broke the $3,400 price level, the crypto will resume the downtrend and price is expected to test the $3,000 price level. Today, the crypto's price is below the EMAs and price is fluctuating above the $3,400 price level. Meanwhile, the MACD line and the signal line are below the zero line which indicates a sell signal. Also, the BTC price is below the 12-day EMA and the 26-day EMA which indicates that price is likely to fall. BTC/USD Short-term Trend: Bearish On the 1-hour chart, the price of Bitcoin is in a bearish trend. In the bearish trend of yesterday, the crypto’s price fell to the low of $3,413.3 and commenced a bullish movement on the upside. The bulls broke the 12-day EMA but were resisted by the 26-day EMA and price fell back to the bearish trend zone. Meanwhile, the price of Bitcoin is below the 12-day EMA and the 26-day EMA which indicates that price is likely to fall. The Relative Strength Index period 14 is level 37 which indicates that price is nearing the oversold region.   The views and opinions expressed here do not reflect that of BitcoinExchangeGuide.com and do not constitute financial advice.

    • Accept that it is a probability business losing is always part of it. Those who try to not lose at all will lose everything at some point.
    • Trading is about waiting not about action wait for moments when the price is more likely to move in one direction than the other, that is where you make your money.
    • Stitch Fix Inc $SFIX Tags Major Support Level, Buy Triggered   Shares of Stitch Fix Inc (SFIX) collapsed over 25% today on the back of poor earnings/guidance. The stock now finds itself trading below $20, down from a 52 week high of $52.50. While it appears to be doom and gloom there is some major light for technical traders. Stitch Fix tagged a major pivot low from June 2018 at $18.40 today. This pivot low signals a likely flush out of weak hands and the bounce signals accumulating by smart money. It would not be far fetched to see Stitch Fix trade back to $25 in the coming months.
