EURJPY Approached Recent Swing Lows, Likely to Breach the Low of the Year on the Level at 117.50

 

EURJPY Price Analysis – August 16

 

The pair depreciated again in value against the Japanese Yen. The currency pair during the mid-week breached both the upper and lower horizontal lines on the moving average 5 and 13 while completing another lap on the low in today’s session towards the low level at 117.50.

 

 

Key Levels

 

Resistance Levels: 123.01, 121.40, 119.91

 

Support Levels: 117.50, 117.00, 114.84

 

EURJPY Long term Trend: Bearish

The Daily time frame displays the EURJPY at the low, showing the pair is also testing a swing area on the level at the 117.50 to the level at 118.16 below the moving average 5 areas. The price attempted to dip below the area on August 12 to the low for the year on the level at 117.50, but could not keep the momentum going. The swing area was reestablished as support on August 13 and again today

 

However, buyers are trying to lean against the low level at 117.50, on the retest and hoping for a quick bounce. The trend is showing a bearish outlook in the medium and long term.

 

EURJPY Short term Trend: Ranging

On its Intraday, the bias in EURJPY remains neutral for the moment. With the level of 119.91 minor resistance intact, further decline is in favor. Although a break of the level at 117.50 will resume a large downtrend to the level at 114.84 support next.

 

However, on the break of 119.91 resistance will indicate short term bottoming. A stronger rebound should be seen to the horizontal resistance line now at 121.40.

AUDUSD Market Dragged Lower on Bears Dominance

 

AUDUSD Price Analysis – August 15

The bears were in full control moving the market lower in the prior session, although in the present session we see the pair found buyers around the level at 0.6748 for the 4th day in a row while the pairs bear dominance is evident falling to lowest close since the beginning of the year.

 

Key Levels

Resistance Levels: 0.7297, 0.7207, 0.7085

Support Levels: 0.6748, 0.6676, 0.6620

 

AUDUSD long term Trend: Bearish

In the bigger picture of the daily time frame, the decline from the level at 0.7207 (high) is seen as resuming the long term downtrend from 0.7297 (February high). Firm break of the level at 0.6876 (low) should confirm this bearish view.

 

On observation, further fall may be seen to the level at 0.6620 (low) next. On the upside, the break of the level at 0.7085 resistance is needed to be the first sign of medium-term bottoming. Otherwise, outlook will remain bearish even in case of a strong rebound.

 

 

AUDUSD short term Trend: Ranging

On the flip side of the 4-hour chart, the AUDUSD is staying in consolidation from the level at 0.6676 and it’s intraday bias remains neutral first. On the upside, the break of the level at 0.6827 will extend the rebound.

 

But upside should be limited below the level at 0.6909 support turned resistance to bring fall resumption. On the downside, the break of the level at 0.6676 may target 100% projections from the level at 0.7085 to 0.6827 from 0.7085 at 0.6620 level reflecting on the daily chart.

Staying Within Previous Boundary EURJPY Continues to Trade Within a Range

 

%2> EURJPY Price Analysis – August 23

In today’s trading session, the common European currency traded sideways against the Japanese Yen. The currency pair was trading below the moving average 5 and 13 since yesterday’s trading session. We may see bearish traders pressurize the currency pair towards the level at 117.50 before the end of today’s trading session.

 

 

Key Levels

 Resistance Levels: 123.01, 119.88, 118.33

 Support Levels: 117.65, 117.50, 117.00

 

 EURJPY Long term Trend: Bearish

In the daily picture, the EURJPY pair may most likely maintain the price range during the next trading session. Alternatively, a breakout may occur downwards.

 While the exchange rate has been trading within the range of the level at 118.33 and 117.50 since mid-August. The trend is bearish, showing an intact downtrend in the medium and long-term.

 

 

EURJPY Short term Trend: Bearish

Today’s trading range has been going negative and more, and that’s below the last trading month’s daily average range. On the flip side, we may see a change in trend with renewed upward strength.

 

Buying could accelerate should prices move above the close-by swing high towards the level at 118.33 where further buy stops might get activated. Although with the level at 119.88 resistance intact, near term outlook remains bearish.

Near Term Outlook Unchanged as AUDUSD Trades Weaker

 

AUDUSD Price Analysis – August 22

The Aussie is holding weaker so far with the yuan softer on the day on a softer note for the equities and treasury yields. However, yuan has a relative effect on USD as the PBOC fixed the yuan weaker again today, reaffirming the notion that they will allow the currency to weaken but not too quickly.

 

Key Levels

Resistance Levels: 0.7205, 0.7085, 0.6827

Support Levels: 0.6748, 0.6676, 0.6620

 

AUDUSD Long term Trend: Bearish

But as seen in the daily picture above, the near-term picture in AUDUSD remains unchanged despite the pair slipping to session lows on the level at 0.6748 currently. Both buyers and sellers have more work to do to gain more momentum to push prices out of the downward range since last week.

 

While the forex pair is experiencing a stall, this could just be a correction, as both the medium and long-term trends are still bearish.

 

AUDUSD Short term Trend: Ranging

However, AUDUSD needs to break the monthly support zone on the level at 0.6676, which is currently providing support for the momentum on the pair at the level at 0.6748.

 

The currency exchange rate will most likely continue to trade downward and flat for today waiting for the required volatility to change the direction.

EURJPY Turns Lower Again After a Bullish Rebound, Now Pushing Through Key Support Level at 117.00

 

EURJPY Price Analysis – August 30

EURJPY pushes through the key area, past the horizontal line on the level at 117.00 during today’s trading session although on Thursday the common European currency appreciated against the Japanese Yen with almost 59 points to the upside.

 

Key Levels

Resistance Levels: 124.03, 121.66, 119.59

Support Levels: 116.59, 116.00, 114.84

 

EURJPY Long term Trend: Bearish

Showing on the daily time frame, sellers have managed to take out the key technical support horizontal line on the level at 117.00 during today’s trading session. EURJPY is staying in consolidation from the level at 116.59.

However, in the case of stronger recovery, the upside should be limited by the level at 119.59 resistance to bring fall resumption. The trend is bearish, and it’s showing an intact downtrend in the medium and longterm.

 

EURJPY Short term Trend: Bearish

On the 4-hour time frame, given that the currency pair has breached the key technical support horizontal line on the level at 117.00, most likely, bearish traders might dominate the EURJPY pair during the following trading session.

 

As it is, intraday bias remains bearish and on the downside break of the level at 116.59 will resume a larger downtrend to the level at 114.84 medium-term support. Though, a break of the level at 119.59 will indicate short term bottoming and bring stronger rebound.

Facebook’s Libra To Apply For Licence In Switzerland

 

Swiss financial regulators have signaled that Facebook’s cryptocurrency, Libra is mandated to meet up to extra requirements besides acquiring a payment system license before they can begin operations in the region.

 

In a recent press release, the Swiss Market Supervisory Authority (FINMA) explained that the diverse services projected by Libra have created the need for adding the requirements being imposed. They stated that due to the issuance of payment tokens by Libra, the operations planned by Libra would clearly exceed those of a pure payment system and therefore should be subjected to such extra requirements.

 

The Extra Regulatory Requirements

According to FINMA, the extra requirements would be targeted specifically at liquidity, risk concentration and capital allocation.

 

The financial regulators of Switzerland have also noted that the management of Libra is another element necessitating the demand for Facebook to meet extra requirements concerning its cryptocurrency initiative.

 

In the launch of the Libra white paper in June, Facebook noted that the reserve would be controlled by a web of custodians who would be spread across different geographies. The so-called custodians will be mandated to possess an investment-grade credit rating.

 

Also, Facebook noted that the real assets used to back the Libra cryptocurrency would be a selection of low-risk assets such as bank deposits and government securities.

 

What Form Will these Extra Libra requirements take?

 

According to FINMA, the extra regulatory requirements that Libra would have to meet would be nothing different from what other participants in the financial markets have to adhere to.

 

For example, Libra would be expected to be exposed to certain bank-like rules such as a large simultaneous number of withdrawals of Libra coin by users would have to be palliated by the application of certain bank-like regulatory requirements. This means that Facebook would be required to obtain a banking license. This idea has been pushed for in the past by U.S. President, Donald Trump.

 

FINMA also mentioned that Libra’s international range will mandate a globally coordinated approach. This new development would drastically delay the launch of the cryptocurrency.

 

U.S. Pressures Switzerland over Libra Cryptocurrency

Switzerland is under intense pressure from the United States to ensure that its cryptocurrency regulations are not prone to misuse. Facebook chose the Central European nation as its hub because of the country’s progressiveness towards FinTech.

 

According to a report by the Wall Street Journal, officials from Switzerland and U.S. Held a meeting in Switzerland earlier this week, where they discussed matters surrounding the new cryptocurrencies regulations.

 

The U.S Undersecretary of the Treasury for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence, Sigal Mandelker, emphasized his concerns over the need to have regulations strong enough to fend off bad actors. He mandated that the Swiss handle these concerns with all importance.

China’s New Cryptocurrency

 

China plans to release a new digital currency which would bear some similarities to Facebook’s Libra coin. It would be usable across several platforms like WeChat and Alipay.

 

In a recent interview with the Shanghai Security News on the 6th of September, the deputy director of the People’s Bank of China, Mu Changchun, stated the purposes and the need for the new digital currency. He stated that the central bank needed to evolve from the use of traditional paper currency and delve into electronic payment methods which are making strong advances around the world. He said that the digital currency would be a realistic way to protect monetary sovereignty and legal currency status, stating that this digital currency initiative was a way of planning for a rainy day.

 

He also mentioned that digital currency would be as safe as the traditional central bank-issued paper notes and that it could even be used without requiring an internet connection. This offline feature is one of its major selling points as monetary transactions can still be carried out even in the face of communication breakdowns resulting from natural disasters like earthquakes, tsunamis and so on.

 

In 2014, the Chinese central bank set up a research party to explore the possibilities of a China-based digital currency to reduce the costs of producing and circulating paper money, which in turn would boost policymakers’ control over the supply of money.

 

Information about the development of this new digital currency was unknown to the public until last month when Mu announced that the innovation was almost ready.

 

US-based financial magazine Forbes has made claims that the currency would be ready by November 11.

 

Analysts are saying that the announcement made by social media giants, Facebook on the release of its digital coin, Libra, is the reason for the acceleration of the push towards digital currency by the PBoC.

 

Mu made mention of how the new digital currency would strike a balance between allowing anonymous payments and preventing money-laundering as compared to Libra. Although the Chinese digital currency may bear some resemblances with Libra, it would possess characteristics that even Libra didn’t have.

 

Facebook’s Libra

Facebook’s Libra has sparked a lot of worries among global regulators that it could become the predominant digital payment format and could become a medium for money laundering considering the social media’s wide reach.

 

Libra is said to be a digital currency that would be backed by several real-world assets, including bank deposits and government securities, and it will be held by a network of stewards. The structure of Libra is predicated on promoting trust and to stabilize its price.

 

Finally, Mu further discussed the superiority of the digital currency over altcoins was that others could go bankrupt and cause its users huge losses. Thus he said, can never be the case of PBoC’s new currency.

Towards the upside, a break of the level at 1.1412 resistance is needed to indicate medium term bottoming. Otherwise, its trend will stay bearish in case of rebound.

 

EURUSD Short term Trend: Ranging

The intraday bias in EURUSD remains neutral as consolidation from the level at 1.0926 continues. Its trends stay bearish with the level at 1.1162 resistance intact and further fall is expected.

5- Run backtests: a lot of crypto trading bots provide testing options for the user to try out their trading strategies with previous historical prices.

 

6- Live testing: whether or not the trading bot comes with a backtesting option, the user will still need to try out their strategy in live market conditions to see how their strategy fares.

 

7- Capitalize the bot: once the user is satisfied with the bot’s performance, there is a need to capitalize on the software to begin the profit-making venture.

 

8- Go live: obviously, the next thing the user will need to do is to launch the bot software.

 

9- Monitor the not: Finally, the user has to monitor the performance of the bot. Even after the backtesting process, the user is still expected to observe the bot’s operations to decide whether it needs tweaking or not.

Hollywood Star Ventures Into Security Tokens

 

As groundbreaking innovations continue to penetrate the finance space, it is almost impossible for this innovation not to spread to other industries. The movie industry is one of such sectors currently experiencing such revolutions. This is due to the invention of distributed technologies like Blockchain, which has brought about the concept of tokenizing everything.

 

Tokenization is the practice of amplifying the liquidity of real-world assets. The idea behind tokenization is the same as stocks or shares, which denotes fractional ownership of stakes in a company. Anything and everything can be tokenized, and many believe it’s only a matter of time before everything is.

 

Daywalker Movie Fund

 

Award-winning actor, director, producer and martial artist Wesley Snipes, is on a bid to capitalize on this advancement with tokenization. The Hollywood actor in collaboration with Liechtenstein Cryptoassets Exchange (LCX), is planning to tokenize $25 million for a movie fund. The project is known as “Daywalker Movie Fund” (DMF) which intends to invest in Wesley Snipes and his production house, Maandi House Studios will create a medium for investors all over the globe to acquire a share in the fund’s production.

 

 

LCX plans on launching a fully compliant security token offering (STO) with the DMF, which will be represented by the DMF security token, to create a level playing field for both retail investors and Hollywood financiers.

 

 

Regulatory Perks

 

STOs, like initial coin offerings (ICO), provide value via a digital token. Although, security tokens, unlike ICOs, are developed with a firm foundation of regulatory due diligence. Also, security tokens represent real assets, much like shares in a company or equity in real estate while ICOs offer a token that can be utilized only through specific infrastructure.

 

One major characteristic that gives security tokens its legitimization is it’s time ties to regulatory governance. However, the operational construct of tokenization differs across jurisdictions. In Liechtenstein, where LCX is situated, the regulatory body passed a law dubbed the Blockchain Act. The act virtually provides an explicit legal basis for ownership as well as a safe storage of the security tokens. It also provides strict rules concerning Anti-Money Laundering and Know Your Customer (KYC) requirements.

 

 

An Increasing Demand For Tokenization

 

Wesley Snipes will not be the first to undertake this journey into movie tokenization. The pioneering body of the concept is tZERO, a Blockchain subsidiary of a U.S. retail company Overstock.com.

 

There is a rising demand for tokenized funding, considering that there is a dire need in the film industry for new avenues for liquidity. Normally, funding in the film industry comes from different revenue streams like hedge funds and individual investors from wealthy individuals. The downside to this in contrast to security tokens is that creates a situation whereby ownership of the finished product is shared with the investor.

Lawmakers Pen Down Concerns to the Fed Over National Digital Currency

 

Two United States lawmakers have urged the Federal Reserve to evaluate the possibilities of creating a digital dollar currency.

 

House of Representatives members, French Hill and Bill Foster recently sent a letter to the Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell, expressing the concerns they have on the implications the US dollar would face in a likely scenario where another country or private company develops a widely used digital currency. They asked if the apex bank was exploring ways to develop their version.

 

The details of the letter were first published by Bloomberg Law which recounts how the Fed possesses the right to create and oversee currency policies.

 

The congressmen wrote that the central bank of the United States had it on its jurisdiction to create a national digital currency. They added that they were worried that the importance of the US dollar could be put in a long-term danger by the adoption of digital fiat currencies across the globe. They wrote that the Bank for International Settlements carried out a survey and discovered that 40 countries across the globe have developed or are planning on developing a digital currency.

 

There have been demands for the global financial system to gravitate away from the dollar. Most peculiar of these calls was when the Bank of England governor, Mark Carney proposed that a digital currency supported by a basket of other financial instruments will assist nations in making this change.

 

According to the letter, Foster and Hill wrote that cryptocurrencies are presently used for speculative functions in the United States, but have the potential to function as the traditional currency of the future. Also, they wrote that the country shouldn’t depend on private corporations to create digital currencies.

 

The letter categorically made mention of Facebook’s cryptocurrency project, Libra. They wrote that if this project by Facebook gets implemented, it could eliminate vital aspects of financial administration outside of the United States jurisdiction.

 

The letter went on to cite recent efforts by private corporations like J.P. Morgan and Wells Fargo.

 

 

Further Suggestions

 

The letter articulates some concerns like what measures is the Fed taking to develop a digital currency, what backup plans the organization were taking if a digital fiat currency gains momentum, what legal or regulatory issues could impede the Fed from assembling a digital currency, what market threats could confront the Fed’s digital currency when it is released and finally, what were the advantages to taking on this project.

 

However, US Reps. Foster and Hill are not the only ones suggesting that the Fed looks into developing a digital currency. In 2018, former Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation Chair, Sheila Bair, likewise suggested that the Fed create its digital currency to prevent disruption from the private sector and other nations.

 

Nonetheless, the Fed is planning on creating a real-time payment system, although it is uncertain if the system is cryptocurrency-based.

AUDUSD Discovers Its Potential for the Upside Movement as Buyers Lean on the Key Support Level

After discovering its potential for the upside movement, AUDUSD has appreciated against the greenback since the prior trading session. The FX pair had exited the prior session above its opening price after recovering from early selling pressure.

 

Key Levels

Resistance Levels: 0.6895, 0.6805, 0.6776

Support Levels: 0.6671, 0.6620, 0.6600

 

AUDUSD Long term Trend: Bearish

Despite trading down to the level at 0.6671 earlier during the previous session, the FX pair had bounced off the horizontal support zone. Meanwhile, its failure to close below the support level might increase the zones’ significance as support going forward.

 

However, if the currency pair breaks the support level, bears could drive the price towards the lower boundary of the horizontal support zone on the level at 0.6620 during the following trading session.

Trade Dispute Responsible for China’s Overwhelming Gold Purchase Rate

 

China has included more than 100 tons of gold to its stores since it continued purchasing in December, fortifying its position as one of the significant authority collectors as national banks load up on the valuable metal.

 

The People’s Bank of China grabbed progressively gold a month ago, raising reserves to 62.64 million ounces in September from 62.45 million in August, as per information on its site. In tonnage terms, the most recent inflow sums 5.9 tons and comes in as an expansion of about 99.8 tons over the earlier nine months.

 

Bullion hit the most noteworthy in over six years in September as more slow development, the trade dispute and rate reductions prodded financial specialist request. National banks have been significant purchasers as well, particularly in developing markets. Administrative demands will probably proceed as protectionist strategies and geopolitical concerns add to the request, as forecasted by Suki Cooper, the valuable metals investigator at Standard Chartered Bank.

 

“With the stressed partnerships with the U.S., China requires support against its enormous possessions of the dollar, and gold serves that capacity,” said Howie Lee, a financial specialist at Singapore-based Oversea-Chinese Banking Corp. “As China turns into a superpower in its very own right, I anticipate progressively gold-purchases.”

 

China’s High Gold Appetite

The PBOC’s continuos running of bullion-purchasing has come against the difficult setting of the trade dispute with the U.S. furthermore, a stamped lull in development at home. While high-level discussions are set to continue in Washington this week, Chinese authorities are flagging they’re progressively hesitant to consent to an expansive bargain.

 

Spot gold spiked to as much as 0.4% to $1,511.31 an ounce on Monday and exchanged at $1,505.84 in early London exchange. While the value declined 3.2% in September, they remain high at 17% this year. The PBOC information was discharged at the end of the week.

Alongside China, Russia has additionally been including generous amounts of bullion. In the initial half-year, national banks overall got 374.1 tons, supporting the overall gold request to a three-year high, the World Gold Council declared.

 

While a tenth straight month of amassing, shows an unfaltering purchasing trend for the PBOC, China has in the past gone for significant stretches without uncovering moves for its gold possessions.

The Economic Proscription of U.S. Farmers by China Maybe Forever

 

Similar to a black eye on the face, it’s placing an indelible imprint. The retaliatory levies by China over U.S. commodity producers, such as soybeans, which seem to be forever. The moment such happens for the market it becomes irreversible.

 

It’s a dread numerous farmers from North Dakota to Mississippi have recognized for as far back as last year. They worry that they’ve put millions in soybean development on account of China. Since Chinese focus is now transferred towards Brazil rather, that market might be gone forever.

 

Once the confidence merchants have in the U.S. declines as a steady provider because of the trade dispute, the more vital its important for them to support and further broaden other avenues.

 

The developing danger for American agribusiness presently is that a great part of the piece of the overall industry lost throughout the year will be hard or difficult to win back at any point shortly, the Boston Consulting Group said in a detailed analysis discharged on Wednesday.

 

This is for the most part because of long term contracts that are regularly recorded among purchasers and sellers, contingent upon the item. The lesson from the analysis shows that U.S. farmers need to turn out to be less reliant on China, and simply trust in the best concerning those customers organizing a rebound sooner or later.

 

For the time being, China is going to Australia, Brazil, New Zealand, Russia, and also for its domestic producers as an option in contrast to American developed crops and animal proteins.

 

From the detailed analysis:

“The risk that U.S. agribusinesses may for all time lose foreign market share of the overall industry isn’t only hypothetical. In past trade disputes, for example, one with China including beef, the US has not recaptured its lost share. As a result of the increase of U.S. crops and food materials more costly than other choices, high duties bring down the price to merchants who plan to expand. Also, the fewer confidence merchants have in the US as a steady provider, in perspective on the potential for future trade disputes, the more important it progresses toward becoming for them to support and further expand. After some time, merchants could loosen up complex associations with suppliers from the U.S.”

 

China Receives Blames for the Pressure

And this is so because China is important to American farmers. China purchased $19.5 billion in U.S. agricultural items as of 2017, representing 14% of exports of farm produce, in light of BCS analysis. In July 2018, China slammed a 25% levy on U.S. agricultural items.

 

Exports at that point declined by an incredible 53% for the year. While exports to China have declined also for this year, over past years free fall.

 

There is another motivation behind why some China customers may not come back to the U.S. China is extending its very own crop acreage, particularly for soybeans. After some time, China will turn out to be progressively independent. Except if request increases generously, China will purchase its very own soybeans, regulating export development and under control in any case.

 

“Individuals in the business were in a condition of cheerfulness, believing that a bargain would soon be reached,” says Michael McAdoo, associate, and related executive for BCS in Montreal. “Our analysis demonstrates that regardless of whether there is a bargain, there is worry that a similar volume won’t return. They need to try different markets,” he declared.

    • This should really be very easy, but I can't find an article or video to walk me through it. I picked 20 ticker symbols where the stocks are in a tight trading range. I got them all into one list I call "Channel". I'd like to add several indicators that apply to all, such as MACD, volume, 3 moving averages. Then I'd like to scroll through the list, adding trendlines, or horizontal lines to mark the top & bottom of the price channel for each. Then set an alarm for a breakout in each direction that indicates a breakout. Could you point me to an article or video that walks me through how to do this? ...or give me the steps? Thank you, RichardV2, Experienced stock trader back before the Internet was invented.😁
