GBPJPY Attempts Upside Advance Beyond 142.33 Level on UK’s Vaccine Rollout Optimism GBPJPY Price Analysis – January 20 GBPJPY’s upside march attempts to advance beyond the 142.33 level with a strong impulse to test the higher barrier at 142.71 level. The optimism about the UK’s vaccine campaign and lower cases is strengthening the case for stability in Pounds Sterling. Key Levels Resistance Levels: 147.95, 144.95, 142.71 Support Levels: 140.31, 137.00, 134.40 GBPJPY Long term Trend: Bullish The GBPJPY pair has already rebounded from the weekly low of 140.35 to 142.33 levels as of today’s session and may lift further. Nonetheless, the horizontal resistance level currently around 142.26, followed by the 142.71 thresholds, challenges the GBPJPY bulls. However, bears are less likely to enter unless witnessing a clear breach beneath the moving average 13 around 141.00 level. In the larger context, the increase from the 123.99 level is seen as an advancing phase of the sideway range trend from the 122.75 (low) level. As long as the 147.95 resistance level holds, an eventual downside breakout stays in consideration. Nevertheless, the eventual breach of 147.95 may increase the likelihood of long term bullish reversal. GBPJPY Short term Trend: Bullish GBPJPY edged higher to 142.25 level last week but upside traction has been very unconvincing. Meanwhile, a sustained increase is mildly in support as long as the 140.31 support level stays intact. The present recovery from 133.04 level may aim for a test on 142.71 high level. On the downside, however, the breach of 138.00 level may argue that the trend from 142.71 level is starting another falling phase. Intraday bias may be altered back to the downside for 134.40 support level and beneath. Source: https://learn2.trade
Date : 20th January 2021. Morgan Stanley – Still the best Equity Trader?Morgan Stanley is set to report its fourth-quarter 2020 earnings before the market open today. Morgan Stanley is a leading global financial services firm providing investment banking, securities, wealth management and investment management services. Hence similar to the previous three quarters of 2020, the coronavirus pandemic, along with the US presidential election and vaccination breakthroughs clearly impacted the Morgan Stanley report and weighed on markets sentiment especially as in the 4th quarter the second wave of pandemic looks to be even stronger than before. The virus spread created chaos in financial markets that impacted the value of loans, investments and trading assets, and significantly reduced interest income and investment banking fees.However, fiscal stimulus programs and ongoing monetary support are expected to have helped client activity bounce back in H2 of 2020, leading to heightened volatility. Therefore, today we could see something similar to the JPMorgan report. Morgan Stanley’s equity and fixed income markets revenues are expected to have improved. Additional reasons that could support a positive reading today are the near-zero interest rates and the Federal Reserve’s bond purchase program, as these is likely to have aided Morgan Stanley’s debt underwriting fees, which account for more than 50% of their total underwriting fees. Also, global M&As spiked in the 2nd half of 2020 due to restructuring. Hence Morgan Stanley could benefit from advisory fees incomes.Nevertheless, according to Forbes and Zacks, Morgan Stanley is expected to earn $1.29/share on $11.08 billion in revenue. This would represent year-over-year growth of 7.5%. Meanwhile, the Zacks Consensus Estimate for revenue is projecting net sales of $11.28 billion, up 3.88% from the year-ago period. Technical Analysis It has been an interesting year for US company shares. Morgan Stanley hit a yearly high of $91.31/share in 2020 while currently trading within the $75-77 territory. The share price is on course for the best performing quarter in Morgan Stanley’s history, since it is a breath away from the 161.8 Fibonacci extension from November’s rally. From the technical perspective, the stock’s outlook is currently bullish however some consolidation has been noticed since December 2020 on the overbought performance seen in the 2nd half of 2020. The price is positioned well above the 200 Day Moving Averages and 50 Day Moving Averages.The stock is prone to big moves after reporting earnings and could easily gap up if the numbers are strong. Conversely, if the numbers disappoint, the stock could easily gap down.Always trade with strict risk management. Your capital is the single most important aspect of your trading business.

And for those of you who are soldiers, you know how to do it. Do it right. Be in order. Make them pay.” ... guilty by their own standards yet ?
