  4. Yesterday
  5. Date : 25th February 2021. Market Update – February 25 – Risk On, Commodity Currencies lead. Market News Today – USD at 3-year lows, Equities recover over 1%, (Dow over 32K) Yields cool again but remain relatively elevated (10yr – 1.41%). RISK ON. JPY & CHF heavy. Commodity currencies & Sterling hold bid, EUR breaks January resistance. Copper at 10-year high, Oil at 13-mth high, Gold under $1800. BTC at 50K. Sentiment lifted as J&J announce a single shot vaccine and independent study shows Pfizer vaccine 94% effective. Overnight – Nikkei up 1.67%, German Gfk confidence ticks higher, Gamestock rallied over 100% and then another 75+% after hours! Reflation trades are back in full swing with bonds selling off and stocks rallying, with the combination of fiscal stimulus and ongoing monetary support fulling the moves. US 10-year rates have dropped back from session highs, but are still up 3.2 bp at 1.41%. Japan’s 10-year has gained 2.1 bp to 0.125% and longer dated benchmarks have now broken multi-annual highs. Australia and New Zealand bonds underperformed and Australia’s 10-year rate lifted nearly 12 bp, despite the fact that the RBA bought bonds for the second time this week. Fed Chair Powell tried to dampen inflation concerns and Vice Chair Clarida said he expects current bond purchases to be maintained at the current pace for the rest of the year. That will likely continue to underpin risky assets and in some quarters add to concerns that easy money is fuelling bubbles in equities and elsewhere. Today – US Durable Goods, GDP, Weekly Claims & PCE Prices. ECB’s Lane, de Guindos, de Cos, Fed’s Bostic, Bullard, Quarles, Williams, and Earnings from over 400 companies in US & Europe. Biggest (FX) Mover @ (07:30 GMT) AUDJPY (+0.36%) Continued yesterday’s momentum rallying from 83.20 and holding over break of 20MA testing over R2 (84.50) to 84.65, R3 85.00. Faster MAs aligned and trending higher, RSI 77 and rising, MACD histogram & signal line aligned higher but flattening after big break of 0 line yesterday. Stochs down from OB zone but rising again.

  6. Defy the narrative! Defy the gov’ts! Defy the bought ‘experts’! Defy the media and propaganda! Defy the collective hypnosis! Some expert some where said. “...But it's too soon to say how seasonality and our immune systems interact in the case of COVID-19.” NO! No IT’S NOT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You have WAY WAY more control over the ‘spread’ of C1984, or any virus, through taking responsibility for your own cellular health than any gov’t nonpharmaceutical interventions (NPIs such as mask mandates, curfews, capacity restrictions, gathering restrictions) ever EVER had or will ever have. ... just skim these charts https://mises.org/wire/almost-year-later-theres-still-no-evidence-showing-governments-can-control-spread-covid-19 Here's another great link assessing the 'risks' ... something traders need to be pretty good at, btw... https://www.aier.org/article/why-i-believe-that-covid-derangement-syndrome-is-real/

  9. Date : 24th February 2021. Market Update – February 24 – Sterling & Commodity Currencies Soar.Market News TodayEquities recover from significant falls, Powell pushes for inflation, USD remains heavy, yields cool from highs, NZD spikes following RBNZ. Commodity currencies & Sterling at 3-year highs, Copper at near 10-year high, Oil slipped from 1-year highs. Gold holds over $1800. BTC up from under 45k to recover 50K. German GDP beats at 0.3%. Overnight – Japanese Inflation slips, ASO talks weak Q1 GDP and need for more Bonds. Nikkei closed lower -1.6%.The Pound and the New Zealand Dollar surged to fresh trend highs, which along with a side theme of yen weakness, provided the main action during Asian trading ahead of the London interbank open. Cable spiked by some 180 pips from yesterday’s New York closing level in posting a fresh 36-month high at 1.4234. The pair subsequently settled lower, to the upper 1.4100s, which still left Sterling with a near 1% gain on the day. At the same time, EURGBP dropped sharply, to a one-year low at 0.8541, while GBPJPY stormed above the 150.00 level for the first time since May 2018.Stop orders and option related demand was reported. It’s not clear if there was a specific catalyst, though the Telegraph newspaper reported British government sources saying that Covid restrictions could be lifted sooner than laid out in PM Johnson’s roadmap, which was outlined earlier in the week, if “real world data on the effect of vaccines is better than expected.” So far the data has been encouraging, and the UK’s ahead-of-the-pack vaccine rollout has been bullish factor for the Pound. The UK economy and the Pound underperformed peers during the height of the first lockdowns last year, and the vista of reopening has been having the opposite effect, especially with Brexit uncertainty having finally ended.The Kiwi Dollar, meanwhile, also rallied, after initially dipping in the immediate wake of the RBNZ policy announcement. The antipodean central bank left the cash rate unchanged at 0.25%, as had been widely anticipated, while the main takeaway from the statement and Governor Orr’s press conference is that policymakers now see the next move as being a tightening, although this was framed in context of uncertainty, ongoing risks to growth etc. Once market participants discerned this, NZDUSD rallied briskly to a new 34-month high at 0.7384.As for the Yen, the currency posted across-the-board declines. USDJPY consequentially lifted to a two-day at 105.58, while AUDJPY and NZDJPY printed new 26-month highs, and CADJPY a one-year peak. EURJPY jumped to within 15 pips of recent 26-month highs, while EURUSD remained rooted in a 20-pip range in the mid 1.2100s. The other dollar bloc currencies, outside the case of the New Zealand Dollar, posted fresh highs, despite weaker global stock markets and softer commodity prices today. AUDUSD pegged a three-year high at 0.7945, while USDCAD dropped to a 34-month low at 1.2557. Equity markets remained under pressure, with Fed chair Powell not doing quite enough to damp down yields during his Senate testimony yesterday, while a rise in stock-trading stamp duty was in part behind a steep decline in Chinese stocks today.Today – US new home sales, DoEs, BoE’s Haldane, Bailey, Vlieghe, Haskel, Broadbent, Fed’s Powell, Brainard, Clarida.Biggest (FX) Mover @ (07:30 GMT) GBPJPY (+0.73%) Rallied from break of 20MA yesterday at 148.00 to breach 150.00 earlier.

  10. Supposedly, the US just passed 500,000 deaths from covid1984. I call bullshit. It’s more likely around 30,000 pure covid deaths ... over two winters - that’s about 15,000 a year. I will still light a candle. The candle is for all the billions of people who believe the narrative that lockdowns are public health measures to reduce the spread of a virus. Lockdowns are political instruments. The candle I light is for all the billions of people who got ‘feared’ into setting their own lives back - way back... just sayin
  11. Date : 23rd February 2021. Market Update – February 23 – USD Remains Heavy. Market News Today Equities heavy & USD down again (Nasdaq –2.46%, TSLA -8.55% but DIS+4.4%) as Yields (+1.8% 10yr) & Commodities (inc. Oil +2% & Gold) gained. Commodity currencies close to 3-year highs. Another volatile session for BTC – 57k-49K. Facebook restores some Aussie news sites, Marathon & Occidental both missed expectations, HSBC announced a 34% fall in profits. Huawei launched a $2,800 foldable phone. US passed 500,000 Covid deaths (20% of global total) & England announced a slow exit from lockdowns. UK labour data was weak but better than expected (claims down & earnings up). The Dollar remained on a softening path in what is now a fourth consecutive trading day of weakening, which has spanned over phases of both risk-on and risk-wary sentiment in global markets, alongside a continued ascent in Treasury yields. Overall, as witnessed by gains in commodity prices over this period, which have been attributed by some market narratives today as helping revive stock market sentiment in Asia, the reflation trade remains in play. Copper prices, for instance, hit fresh 10-year highs today, and are up by nearly 20% on the year to day and by 62% from year-ago levels. Other base metals have seen a similar magnitude of advance. There remains a conviction in markets that the reflation trade — the escape from pandemic recession and slow growth to the anticipated eventual return to societal and economic normalcy, fuelled by massive stimulus and a presumed unleashing of a pent up consumer ‘lockdown savings’ spending spree in developed economies — is inherently dollar bearish. The Dollar is richly valued by the measure of historic trade weighted levels, and many value/relative value investment opportunities in the inflation trade lie outside of the US economy. SocGen research, for instance, last week highlighted that the consensus expectation is for earnings to rise 30% in 2021 for companies in the MSCI World Index, and by 40% in emerging markets. That said, the Dollar (as measured by the USDIndex) remains above its early January lows. When it became clear that the Democrats would control the Senate following the early-January Georgia run-off elections, this put the brakes on what had been an unfolding dollar weakening trend — especially in light of the consequential passing of the gargantuan $1.9 tln stimulus bill, which has the potential to bring forward Fed tightening sooner than it would otherwise have been. But for now the Fed is likely to stick to its dovish guns, which is what we expect Fed chair Powell will do to today during his Congressional testimony of the central bank’s semi-annual Monetary Policy Report. Today – EZ CPI (final), US Consumer Confidence, Fed Chair Powell’s semi-annual testimony to the Senate, BoC’s Macklem. Biggest (FX) Mover @ (07:30 GMT) NZDCAD (-0.34%) Rejected 0.9250 yesterday, moved under PP, 20Hr & 50Hr MA earlier to test toward 0.9200. Recovered 50MA now.

  12. Have you invested in an extremely rare opportunity of a lifetime? The Next “Buzz Word” Altcoins Last month, the Bloomberg Galaxy Crypto Index was at 1414.37, following a low of 217.82 in early March. BTC had made a new high yesterday at $51,630.86. Today (February 17) and the index was at 2,295.61. That’s a huge gain for one month. Let me put this into perspective. In late 2017, I said that cryptoassets were the biggest institution revolution since the Industrial Revolution and that they represented the investment of a lifetime. Institutions, however, were not ready or capable of participating in that revolution so they “pooh-poohed” it. The SEC decided that most altcoins were securities which precipitated a huge bear market. By the end of 2018, cryptos had undergone an 85% decline and BTC hit a low price of $3,236.76 on Dec 15, 2018. But then look what happened. BTC was up 92.71% in 2019 It was up 305.94% in 2020 And it’s up 75.42% in less than 50 days of 2021…. What did I say in 2018? There was actually a period from October through November last year when I made over $3 million in 7 weeks. Cryptos are the investment of a lifetime. While BTC could go up another 10 fold in the long run, I doubt that it will go much over $100,000 this year…. But the opportunity of a lifetime is not over because now the altcoins are starting to move. Here are a few examples, and this is just the movement in 2021. BNB 289% ETH 144% LINK 178% SNX 215% AAVE 397% CND 145% And remember those gains are just from the 48 days of 2021…. You can purchase crypto coins here. Update on Cryptoassets I think that there are a number of altcoins that could go up 10 times or more during the rest of 2021. Now we might have a decline of 40% or more during the year, but it probably will be short-lived with a very quick recovery… BTC was up 92.7% in 2019, 305.94% in 2020, and in the first six weeks of 2021, it’s up 74.22%. Let’s contrast that with the other hedge against the USD and disaster, gold. Gold was up 20.94% in 2019, up 18.32% in 2020, and it’s down 5.1% so far in 2021. The path of safety is now BTC. Gold has about 10 times more market cap than cryptos right now (even though cryptos are now over a trillion for the 1st time). If all of the money in gold went into BTC, BTC’s price would be about $370,000… People talk about BTC being volatile and risky. But where can you find something that has made over 1,000% in 3 of the last 11 years, over 100% in 8 of them, and had only two losing years? There is only one other place than BTC with anywhere near equal performance – other cryptoassets. If you had bought BTC at the beginning of 2012 (well, not at the very beginning), you would have turned $1,000 into more than $7.1 million (up $4.5M last month)… Remember these are 30-day percent gains. This is probably the easiest market possible to make a lot of money. You could, however, just as easily enter a position and immediately have a 25% drawdown – which could cause you to exit and then miss out on some nice gains. If you don’t have strong beliefs about cryptos like I do, crypto volatility will test you… This newsletter makes no recommendations about cryptos but is a free service… I personally own positions in most of the cryptos mentioned in this newsletter.

  15. Narrative: Stay real calm. There will be no hyperinflation. Look at our numbers. There is not even any significant price inflation.* Don't let anything threaten your confidence in the system. Reality: If you add up all of the money the U.S. has ever 'printed', over 40% of it was printed in 2020 alone. In three months in 2020, the U.S. increased its deficit by more than it had during the past five recessions combined (’73, ’75, ’82, early ‘90s and late 00's). Under Jerome Powell, the Fed bought more Treasuries in SIX WEEKS than it did in 10 years under Ben Bernanke and Janet Yellen. ... just sayin ... *(except maybe at the grocery store, your power bill, construction materials, etc etc etc)
  16. Earlier
  17. Date : 19th February 2021. US Open – Dollar, Oil & Gold Pressured; Equities higher. The Dollar has softened for a second consecutive day, despite US Treasury yields perking up, although remaining off trend highs seen earlier in the week. Global stock markets have continued to exhibit a sputtering price action in the face of historically stretched valuations and the recent spike in yields. In the commodity realm, oil prices have corrected while base metals have remained buoyant, with nickel and particularly Copper, for instance, posting fresh major trend highs. The USDIndex posted a three-day low at 90.19, finding some support at the S2 level, which marks a little over a two-thirds retrace of the gains that were seen on Tuesday and Wednesday. EURUSD concurrently rose above 1.2100 for the first time since Wednesday, to stall at R2 1.2140. USDJPY dropped for a third straight day, posting a three-day low below S2 105.30. The Yen traded softer against most other currencies. Cable lifted above 1.4000 for the first time since April 2018, while the Pound traded softer against the Euro, correcting after rising against the common currency on each day over the last week, which produced an 11-month peak yesterday. There was unusual divergence among the dollar bloc, which correlated with the divergence between rising base metal prices and a concurrent fall in oil prices, with the Australian Dollar outperforming the main currencies while the Canadian Dollar underperformed. This saw the AUDCAD cross lift by over 0.7% in pegging a 32-month high at 0.9915. AUDUSD, meanwhile, surged 1% in making a 35-month high at 0.7843, while AUDJPY rallied into 26-month high territory. USDCAD ebbed comparatively moderately, to a three-day low at 1.2632, while the Canadian Dollar weakened against the Euro and Yen, among other currencies. Weaker oil prices affected the Loonie and other oil correlating currencies. Front-month WTI oil futures dove over 2.5% in posting a one-week low as USOIL touched $58.57. USOil is down over 5% from the 13-month high that was seen yesterday at $62.26. Bitcoin continued to hold firm on dips, aided by Elon Musk asserting that bitcoin “is simply a less dumb form of liquidity than cash.” Gold, which spiked to 7-month lows during the Asian session at $1760.58, has since recovered over $1770.00 but is down for a seventh consecutive day, losing over 4%. US equity futures have extended higher to post small gains with the USA30 up 0.1%, the USA500 0.4% firmer, and the USA100 0.5% higher. European bourses are in the green with the GER30 rallying 0.5% while the UK100 lags and is only 0.1% higher. Always trade with strict risk management.

  18. YOU maintain the biased mismatch btwn reality and the narrative https://caityjohnstone.medium.com/tyranny-by-propaganda-is-tyranny-by-force-170bf8b159eb That game works most effectively when the propaganda machine focuses on security and health. What better way than a plandemic to chain you and the masses beside you. If someone or some system has control of your health and its care, they have total control of you. If someone or some system can make you dependent on them , they have total control of you. So they tell you how you must conduct your businesses. You comply. It hits the bottom line hard. They send you tiny dependent checks.. You comply some more. They tell you to mask up. You comply. They use high cycles for tests to inflate the infection count until it is no longer 'politically' expedient. Worse, for months and months EVERY death is from the plandemic... flu and pneumonia, etc, etc literally disappeared. You don’t question the narrative. Then, they tell you to take a jab of a medicine (not a real vaccine) that has limited testing. with no liability recourse, no full informed consent. You volunteer. Meanwhile over in reality, buried CDC numbers say only 6% of the Covid1984 deaths were solely from covid. Even that number is inflated... because in that 6%, many had latent cell vulnerabilities that triggered cytokine cascades, etc etc or whatever killed them. Meanwhile over in reality, localities that stayed ‘open’ had no worse plandemic than did the localities that locked way down. Meanwhile over in reality, places that don’t mask up don’t have statistically significant more ‘cases’ of covid. Meanwhile over in reality, they did very little to protect those in the population who helped run up the numbers... those who were actually vulnerable to the bug - think NY nursing homes, etc. Meanwhile over in reality, in the limited testing done on the jabs before release, dirty little secrets hide in the control groups that got ‘placebo’ jabs - eg in one trial, not one of 24,000 control subjects died, only 6 got serious or ‘long’ covid... no wtf? ... and this is just a trial run softening you up for a ‘real’ plandemic “thought bubble” narrative / shackle chain coming to a culture near you... just sayin’
  19. Date : 18th February 2021. Dollar settled as commodities hit new highs.Both the US Dollar and US Treasury yields have settled off their respective highs, while global equity markets have come off the boil as investors take stock in the face of lofty valuations. The reflation trade remained alive and kicking in commodities, however, with copper and other base metals surging to fresh multi-year highs, buoyed by demand on Chinese exchanges, which reopened after their week long hiatus for the Lunar New Year holiday. USOIL prices also clocked a new 13-month peak.A Reuters article highlighted a laboratory study showing that the Pfizer vaccine was less effective against the South African variant of SARS-Cov2, which may have been a contributory factor behind the more risk-cautious sentiment in stock markets, although evidently this story had little impact in the commodity realm. Some scientists have been welcoming the similarities in the various ‘successful’ mutations of the coronavirus — that is those variants that have become dominant out of the thousands of mutations — as it suggests that the only way the virus is successfully mutating is to more transmissible versions, as seen the South African, Brazilian and UK variants, rather than to a more deadly version of itself. There is also confidence that existing vaccines can also be relatively easily tweaked to deal these variants, too. In currency markets today, ranges have been narrow so far.The USDIndex has seen a less than 10 pip range, holding just below the 91.00 level. EURUSD has been similarly unambitious in directional terms, plying a narrow path above yesterday’s 10-day low at 1.2023. Cable has recouped to levels above 1.3900 after trading under 1.3850 yesterday. The 34-month peak seen on Tuesday is at 1.3951. At the same time, the Pound has posted a fresh 10-month high against the Euro, and has lifted against the Yen and other currencies.This continues the moderate outperforming bias the Pound has been exhibiting on the year so far, since the UK completed Brexit by leaving its transition membership of the EU’s common market and customs union. News earlier this week that the UK government reached, ahead of schedule, its target to vaccinate the most vulnerable groups against Covid have given markets reason to be bullish on Sterling, which is amid what could be described as a crawl out of historically weak trade-weighted valuations with four-and-a-half years of Brexit uncertainty having finally come to an end. Only Israel and the UAE have vaccinated faster than the UK, and the contrast with the situation in the EU has been mooted lately in market narratives as being a bearish factor for EURGBP. Prime Minister Johnson will be laying out a road map for reopening next Monday. This should keep the Pound broadly underpinned.A modicum of yen outperformance has seen USDJPY ebb to a 2-day low at 105.69. The pair remains up by just over 2.5% on the year-to-date, corresponding with the pronounced widening in US Treasury over JGB yield differentials, which in the case of the 10-year benchmarks has been more than 35bp over this period. Yen crosses, which have recently been trading at either multi-month or multi-year highs, also tipped lower. In the cryptocurrency realm, Bitcoin rallied to yet another record, this time above $52,500, amid increasing signs that the asset class, which is essentially a digital version of a precious metal (limited supply and no yield, although with the added benefit of no storage costs), is becoming accepted by institutional investors.Always trade with strict risk management.

  24. Silver Price: XAGUSD Stays Optimistic Under $28.00 As Bulls Gather Traction XAGUSD Price Analysis – February 16 Silver (XAGUSD) price continues to range within the $27.00 to $28.00 region as buyers support the prospect for a move beyond the $28.00 and on the other hand, sellers need to refresh monthly low for entries. Silver is currently trading at $27.05 per ounce, representing a 0.50% loss on the day. Key Levels Resistance Levels: $30.00, $28.90, $27.92 Support Levels: $26.77, $26.00, $25.00 XAGUSD Long term Trend: Ranging XAGUSD bulls attempted to crush January 6, 2021, old barrier around the $27.95 zone but retreated to the $26.83 level. As a result, the quote’s further upside may be challenged by a psychological horizontal line at the $27.50 level. However, if the trend stays toward breaking past $28.00 marks, the monthly peak surrounding $30.00 will be the next target. Alternatively, a downside breach of the immediate support line, currently around $26.77 level, may take silver prices towards the low level at $26.00. However, any further weakness needs to break the yearly low of $24.01 to invalidate the XAGUSD bullish run-up. XAGUSD Short term Trend: Ranging Silver’s price has staged a major technical pullback after finding resistance at the psychological $30.00 level. However, on the one hand, the price for XAGUSD could likely be pushed down by the MA 5 crossing the MA 13 lower in the $27.07 range towards the $26.00 range. Meanwhile, the rate could gain support at the $26.77 horizontal level. And from the other hand, the white metal could likely gain support from the lower level near $26.00 in the event of a plunge. Thus, some upside potential could prevail in the market during subsequent sessions. Source: https://learn2.trade
  25. Date : 17th February 2021. Stock stalled, Gold down, BTC up amid sell off in Treasuries!. Market News Today The selloff in Treasuries deepened as the market returned from its long Presidents Day weekend. The stock rally started to run out of steam, while the selloff in bond markets continued. The bear steepener remained fully intact as the reflation trade and technicals gripped the market. 10-year Treasury yields reached levels last seen in February 2020 yesterday, before falling back -1.5 bp and settling around the 1.3% mark. Longer dated yields are at or near 1-year highs. But even when the full equity rally fizzled and the USA100 fell into the red, bond yields continued higher. A stronger than expected Empire State index also supported the bearish case in bonds. JGB rates have lifted 2 bp to 0.094% and bonds also sold off in Australia and New Zealand, leaving rates more than 8 bp higher on the day. Meanwhile the JPN225 corrected -0.6%, despite an unexpected rebound in core machinery orders. GER30 and UK100 futures meanwhile are down -0.04% and up 0.3% respectively, while US futures are posting fractional gains after a mixed session in Asia. Equities have already come a long way and there may not be much appetite to push valuations out further at this point, but stimulus hopes and vaccine developments continue to fuel reflation trades and central bank efforts to try and slow the rise in yields by stressing that monetary policy will remain accommodative, risk fuelling a bubble in speculative assets that could come back to haunt markets further down the line. In FX markets USDJPY dropped back to 105.96, amid a broadly higher yen, although the Dollar rose against most other currencies. USOIL meanwhile is trading at $60.19 per barrel. EURUSD dropped back to 1.2070, Cable to 1.3868. Bitcoin rose, again, through $50,000 as signs of big investor interest in the asset drive more and more buying. Gold prices extended losses for a fifth straight session on Wednesday, slipping to near 2-week lows as soaring US Treasury yields and a firmer Dollar dented the bullion’s appeal. Today – Data releases today focus on US Retail sales and Canadian inflation for January, along with the FOMC minutes. The FOMC minutes to the January 26, 27 policy meeting should underscore the Fed’s commitment to a lower for longer rate stance, with no intention of trimming QE. We know the meeting resulted in no change in policy and so the minutes will not break any new ground. Indeed, last week Chair Powell’s sombre outlook where he emphasized the need for ongoing support from monetary policy due to the pandemic was in keeping with the tweaks in the January policy statement. One such tweak was that the Fed’s acknowledgement that “the pace of the recovery in the economy and employment has moderated in recent months, with weakness concentrated in the sectors most adversely affected by the pandemic.” We’ve also heard Fedspeak that the entire FOMC is generally on board with this posture, including allowing inflation to run hot for some time. Biggest (FX) Mover @ (07:30 GMT) NZDUSD (-0.40%) extended losses below 20-DMA. Next Support remains at the 50-DMA at 71.60. MACD lines and RSI are neutral but still turning lower while intraday they are both negatively configured, with fast MAs sloping further lower. Always trade with strict risk management.

  26. Date : 16th February 2021. Market Update – February 16.Market News TodayThe stock rally continued overnight as sentiment remains underpinned by growing conviction that the vaccine rollout will boost the global recovery and as Asian markets are coming back from the extended weekend. China remains closed for the Lunar New Year holiday. The JPN225 closed 1.3% higher above the 30000 mark, after trimming some gains following an FT story that China is considering limiting rare earth mineral supplies to US defence contractors, which rekindled concern over the future of US-China relations. This is a reminder that virus developments are not the only factor determining the world growth outlook.Bond markets meanwhile remain under pressure as reflation trades unfold and the US 10-year rate jumped 2.3 bp to 1.23%. JGB rates are up 0.1 bp at 0.075%. GER30 and UK100 futures are marginally higher, underperforming versus US futures. US Treasury yields are at their highest since March. In FX markets, the USDIndex fell to a 3-week low while the USDJPY lifted to 105.54 amid broad pressure on the Yen, although the Dollar was lower against most other currencies. USOIL retraced to $59.90 from $60.95 – US boosted power demand but also threatened oil production in Texas. Crude markets are well into pre-pandemic ranges, yet global demand is not likely be restored to pre-pandemic levels for a considerable time. Bitcoin flirts with breaking through the $50,000 barrier – 350% gains in the past 12 months. Today – Data releases today focus on the second reading for Eurozone Q4 GDP, and German ZEW investor confidence for February. There is room for an upside surprise on the ZEW against the background of the global stock rally and strengthened confidence in the global recovery.Biggest (FX) Mover @ (07:30 GMT) NZDJPY (+0.51%) Broke 3-year Resistance area 76-76.50 following a 3-month rally. Faster MAs however have retraced in the past 4 hours, confirming the pullback from 76.70 highs to 76.30, and are currently sideways, suggesting consolidation above the 20-hour SMA. MACD histogram & signal line lost some ground, with RSI at 57 and Stochastic sloping aggressively lower in line with the pullback. However only a break below the 20-hour SMA could suggest further decline.Always trade with strict risk management. Your capital is the single most important aspect of your trading business.

  27. I think what really works isn't publicly available stuff. Profitable algorithms are the same thing as trade secrets which should be stored properly. Even if I were offered to sell my algo I use with Hotforex I would never do that because it makes money and selling it makes no sense.
  28. At the ‘middle’ of the two poles - the need for freedom and the need for security - is ease... When one is accentuated and the other neglected, then tensions and fragility accelerate, dis ease and insanity ensues... just sayin’ big pharma = BIG COVID https://blog.nomorefakenews.com/2021/02/12/covid-patient-grills-doctor-off-the-record/
