EURUSD continues to correct higher, but we still look for resistance at 1.2996/3001 to turn the trend lower again.

GBPUSD above 1.6128 would allow a test of 1.6228 and through it is needed for a base.

USDJPY ideally stays capped below key resistance at 107.50/58.

NZDUSD spotlight stays on the downtrend and price resistance at .7987/99.

AUDUSD remains in a broad sideways range.

EURJPY immediate risk stays marginally lower while capped below 136.58/59.

USDCAD ideally holds above 1.1161/59 to keep its immediate uptrend.

NZDUSD Long Signal from CFTC Commitment of Traders Report

 

Very few times - historically - commercials (hedgers) have turned net long NZDUSD - as per the CFTC commitment of traders report which is published every Friday.

 

And on all of these instances (when they turn long) except one, the pair NZDUSD has formed a base and rallied higher. (In the chart below, the yellow line is NZDUSD weekly and white line is commercial position).

 

As per the latest COT report, commercials' position is 5865 long, which is almost at historical high. So, this signals time for NZDUSD to form a base above the strong support level of 0.7700 and rally northwards.

China devaluation to cause uncertainty in policy, whilst USD to be unsettled by rate hike

 

Kathleen Brooks, Research Director for City Index, joined Nick Batsford and Richard Hunter at Tip TV to discuss the China devaluation, the USD, the US rate hike, oil and equities.

 

China devaluation not great for China

 

Brooks began by noting that she didn’t expect the China devaluation, before adding that the devaluation is unlikely to boost anything. She commented that it is likely to lead to a huge amount of capital outflow, which is good for the UK property market, and also brings about uncertainty in policy.

 

USD doesn’t move with interest cycles as you would expect

 

With the FOMC minutes being released on Wednesday, and being one month away from the FOMC meeting, Brooks noted that whenever there has been a tightening cycle the USD has actually fallen over the last 30 years. The USD is also unlikely to be unsettled by the rate hike, with Brooks commenting that the Fed will urge on the side of caution and thus she will be surprised if the hike occurs in September.

 

Not a buyer for choice on oil

 

The situation doesn’t feel right concerning oil, according to Brooks. She noted that there is too much supply, with Iran producing at the highest level for the last 6 years, whilst China’s demand likely to fall further with its weakening economy. Brooks also continued that oil will remain in a tight range for the next while.

 

Good environment for equities

 

Brooks finished by expressing that equities are in a good environment, with low inflation, interest rates and oil prices, meaning firms still have pricing power. However, she does outline a warning over big blue chips in the near future, including large oil companies and heavy exporters to China like BMW, and instead focus on smaller companies in areas such as Spain.

Following yesterday’s release of the FOMC minutes, Marc Ostwald – Market strategist at ADM Investor Services – joined Zak Mir and Bil Hubard in the Tip TV studio to discuss the likelihood of an interest rate hike in the US and the UK, as well as what’s going on in the markets. Have the equity markets braced for a rate hike? Views are somewhat negative in the US equities market, as they see a sideways churn. However Marc Ostwald believes this is a bullish sign, and that players in the stock market are preparing themselves for the possibility of a rate hike occurring in September. With equities continuing to be the most attractive prospect for investors, there’s no rush to sell as other markets are proving exceptionally reactive to incoming data. The need for differentiation Akin to the sentiments from recent news, with markets becoming more dynamic we’re likely to see a separation between the smarter investors. Ostwald believes differentiation will be key in deciding where to invest, as industries across the board struggle, but specific opportunities still present themselves as a result of micro-specific factors. - See more at: Wall street ready for the Federal Reserve rate hike? | TipTV.co.uk

First Black Monday, now Woeful Wednesday?

 

Neil Mackinnon – Chief macro strategist at VTB Capital – joined Mike Ingram and Zak Mir in the Tip TV studio to discuss what powers the major central banks have to turn the markets around again.

 

Uncertainty over possible second down leg

 

The warning signs have been evident for a while, says Mackinnon, as ongoing market pressure in China, speculation over a Fed rate hike, and oil prices looking for a bottom have culminated in Monday’s flash crash. However the overall bearish outlook for the markets still persists, and with major banks having exhausted almost all monetary options, there is little that can be done to break this cycle.

Today’s stock and macro update: China data and market unclear but may still prevent Fed rate hike

 

Nick Batsford, CEO of Tip TV, opened the Tip TV Finance Show alongside Richard Hunter, Head of Equities at Hargreaves Lansdown, to discuss the impending potential Fed rate hike and FOMC meeting this Thursday, China’s clouded economic data, as well as brief outlooks on the FTSE 100, NASDAQ, Merlin, Kingfisher and more.

 

Entirely 50/50 on Fed decision this Thursday

 

Hunter outlined that the verdict of Thursday’s FOMC meeting is split down the middle and a rate hike could be on the cards. He noted that any hike will be a 25 basis point interest rate rise. However, Hunter also highlighted that China has given the Federal Reserve a significant excuse to prevent the Fed hike, even though US data has been improving recently.

 

China clouded economic data remains

 

Hunter briefly outlined China, commenting that its stock market is still in trouble following the drastic fall and the government artificially holding up prices, and that in terms of its economic data we are unsure of its accuracy.

 

October tumble in the markets possible

 

Hunter moved onto the markets, and commented on the decline until December as many begin positioning their portfolios for 2016. Historically October has been the month for a crash, however, he noted that you can’t categorise months, sometimes it will and sometimes it won’t, and he urges to look to the longer term and ride out the volatility.

 

Oversupply to cause $20 oil

 

Batsford highlighted the call by Goldman Sachs who have predicted oil down to $20 a barrel. In response, Hunter noted that he is not sure on oil, and that there must be some other factors in play other than oversupply for Goldman Sachs to be calling oil down to $20. He added oil experts believe we are in a range now, and that $20 is a long way off at the moment.

 

Stock and Index updates

 

Batsford outlined the NASDAQ as being the strongest index on Thursday and is currently leading the market. He also added that this should continue over the next week.

 

In terms of IAG, Hunter commented that it is a well-regarded stock and the market consensus is coming in at a strong buy.

 

Hunter continued onto KGF, and believed that they are trying to get synergies within the business. According to Hunter, exposure to France had been holding back and the Jury remains out at the moment.

 

When concerning MERL, Hunter noted that is will be interesting to see what financial impact Merlin is likely to take from the Alton Towers incident. But it maintains a buy due to its great diversification of parks and rides and its presence in the USA as well.

    • Date : 24th February 2020 Events to Look Out For Next Week 24th February 2020.The economic data has been and will continue to be overshadowed by the Covid-19 outbreak. The week ahead starts light, with the German Business Sentiment Index and Chinese Retail Sales on Monday. Leading indicators dominate the releases, but the event of the week is the US GDP and Consumer Confidence, which should shed light on whether the epidemic is visible in the data globally.Monday – 24 February 2020 Japan – Emperor’s Birthday Retail Sales (CNY, GMT N/A) – China’s retail trade growth stood at 8 percent year-on-year in December 2019. However a strong decline is expected for January, following the recent releases indicating that new car sales plunged 92% in China in February and airline traffic is expected to post the first drop since 2011 amid heavy virus containment measures in China. German IFO (EUR, GMT 09:00) – The German Business Sentiment Index released by the CESifo Group is closely watched as an early indicator of current conditions and business expectations in Germany. February’s numbers are expected to incline. Tuesday – 25 February 2020 Leading Economic Index (JPY, GMT 05:00) – The index is expected to show no change in the outlook of the Japanese economy and stand at 91.6. Gross Domestic Product (EUR, GMT 07:00) – German GDP is expected to have fallen by 0.3% on an annualized rate in the last quarter of the year, compared to 1.0% growth in Q3. Conference Board Consumer Confidence (USD, GMT 15:00) – Consumer Confidence is expected to have increased to 132.4 compared to 131.6 in the previous month. Wednesday – 26 February 2020 New Home Sales (USD, GMT 15:00) – The housing recovery should extend into 2020, assuming that mortgage rates remain low and Fed policy remains accommodative. The January new home sales should post a 2.3% climb to a 710k pace, after a dip to a 694k rate in December, versus a 12-year high of 730k in September. Trade Balance (NZD, GMT 21:45) – The Trade Balance measures the difference in value between imported and exported goods and services over the reported period. It will be interesting to see whether the New Zealand trade balance already posts an impact from the epidemic. Thursday – 27 February 2020 Gross Domestic Product (USD, GMT 13:30) – US preliminary GDP growth for Q4 is expected to trim to 2.0% from 2.1%. Durable Goods (USD, GMT 13:30) – Durable goods orders are expected to fall -1.5% in January with a -4.7% drop in transportation orders. Defense orders should fall by -29%, following the 101.4% December surge. Boeing orders declined to zero planes, following a dismal 3 planes in January. Tokyo Core CPI and Unemployment Rate (JPY, GMT 23:30) – Tokyo CPI is usually a good proxy for the Japanese economy’s overall inflation rate. In February, the CPI ex Food is expected to have stood at 0.9% y/y. The unemployment rate is expected to have climbed to 2.3% from 2.2% in December. Retail Sales (JPY, GMT 23:50) – Following a precipitous 3-month dive in October -December, due to a prolonged hit to exports from soft global demand and a slide in consumer spending following a nationwide tax hike, January’s Retail Sales are expected to drop to -1.1% on a y/y basis. Friday – 28 February 2020 Unemployment Rate (EUR, GMT 08:55) – The German unemployment rate is expected to have remained at 5% in February. Harmonized Index of Consumer Prices (EUR, GMT 13:00) – The German HICP inflation could rise to 0.3% m/m for February from the drop seen at -0.6% m/m last month. Gross Domestic Product (CAD, GMT 13:30) – A sharp slowing in Canada’s real GDP growth rate to 1.2% (q/q, saar) is expected in Q4 following the 1.3% Q3 growth. This should not add to the backing for a rate cut for the Bank of Canada. Personal Income (USD, GMT 13:30) – A 0.3% rise in personal income in January is anticipated after a 0.2% increase in December, alongside a 0.2% rise in consumption that follows a 0.3% December gain.

    • Bitcoin (BTC) Consolidates As Bears And Bulls Tussle Above $9,400 Support Key Resistance Zones: $10,000, $11,000, $12,000 Key Support Zones: $7, 000, $6, 000, $5,000 BTC/USD Long-term Trend: Ranging Bitcoin has failed to break above $10,400 overhead resistance. The bulls made two unsuccessful attempts at the resistance. In the recent one, the bears took the price to a low of $9,290 and then pulled back above $9,400. In the interim, the price is fluctuating above $9,400 and approaching the high of $9,800. As the bulls have failed to push above the overhead resistance, the pair may commence a range movement. Nonetheless, it is anticipated that if the bears break below the $9,400 support, selling pressure may resume. Meanwhile, BTC may continue the range-bound movement. BTC/USD – Daily Chart Daily Chart Indicators Reading: After the downward move of Bitcoin, the Relative Strength Index has also fallen to level 52. This simply means the coin is above the centerline 50. In other words, BTC is in an uptrend and it is likely to rise. Price broke the support line of the ascending channel. The uptrend will be in proper perspective only when the bulls break into the ascending channel. BTC/USD Medium-term Trend: Bearish On the 4- hour chart, Bitcoin now trades between $9,400 and $10,200 after the first breakdown at the $10,400 overhead resistance. The bulls tested the resistance at $10,200 twice , before the downward move. The large bearish candlesticks tested a low of $9,290. However, the small body candlesticks that follow are called indecisive candlesticks. BTC/USD – 4 Hour Chart 4-hour Chart Indicators Reading Presently, BTC is trading above a 25% range of the daily stochastic. That is the coin is in the bullish trend zone. The 21-day SMA and the 50-day SMA are sloping horizontally indicating a sideways trend. General Outlook for Bitcoin (BTC) From every indication, if the bulls fail to push above the overhead resistance, the price action in October and November will repeat itself. For the past three days, BTC is still fluctuating above $9,400. Instrument: BTC/USD Order: Sell Entry price: $9,700 Stop: $9,900 Target: $8,400 Note: Learn2Trade.com is not a financial advisor.
