A Multitude of Allegations Against FTX

According to the lawsuit, the defendants were caught red-handed attempting to manipulate the prices of Bitcoin futures on Binance. The defendants reportedly dumped futures contracts worth 255 BTC in an attempt to produce an “artificial price move that would trigger cascading execution of stop-loss orders and liquidations of futures long positions.”

Besides this, the plaintiff alleges that the defendants used multiple brokerage accounts to manipulate the market using methods that have been previously deemed illegal by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). Additionally, FTX is accused of running an unlicensed money transmitting business with its OTC desk, while claiming that FTX sold around 50 million FTX tokens (FTT) to U.S. citizens at steep discounts.

The plaintiff BMA is currently seeking exemplary and punitive damages against all defendants, totaling $150 million.

So when you read in the above review..... 'FTX has also built a name for itself in China despite china’s anti-crypto stance. The coins will be available to traders as a perpetual futures contract while providing a leverage time value of more than a hundred'.

.....You know they are targeting the usual brain dead idiots that lose their money and come crying here when they can't withdraw funds.

 

Any fkn stupid questions?

Tips On How Best To Handle Bitcoin Market Crashes

In a scenario where the price of Bitcoin is crashing, what would be the best reactions to take?

Below are a few things an investor can do to weather the storms of a market crash.

 

Maintain a Calm State of Mind

Trading Bitcoin mandates that one has a disciplined mind state, meaning that your emotions must be in check at all times. Allowing your emotions to cloud your judgment in unfavorable market conditions is never the best option and in most cases, ends in disappointment and regrets. What you should do instead is take a break, evaluate what is happening and make logical decisions.

Most times, it is best to do nothing rather than taking an action that might end up going against you.

 

Try Not to Obsess

Sitting in front of your screens all day is not going to change anything happening in the markets. Spending time making analysis and plotting charts is fine, but don’t waste hours obsessing over the predicament you might be facing. It is advisable to engage yourself with something more constructive.

However, if you still have to trade, select a limit order and move on to something else.

 

Do Not Lose Focus of the Main Aim

The fact that Bitcoin may be facing a crash at a time does not mean that the overall demand for Bitcoin is gone, it is usually just a temporary downturn. The crypto market possesses the most assorted investor base of any other sector, it is safe to say that the market will almost certainly bounce back.

Always adhere to your trading strategy. Do not let the current situation drive you to make drastic trading decisions only for the market to turn around days later, causing you further losses or opportunities.

The crypto market is an extremely erratic playing field and huge plunges and rallies are always expected.

EOS Begins A Gradual Rally; Can It Reach The Resistance Level At $6?

 

Key Resistance Levels: $5, $6, $7

Key Support Levels: $3, $2,$1

 

EOS Price Long-term Trend: Bullish

EOS is in a bullish move but it is encountering penetration at the $3.70 price level. The market pulls back and continues to trade below $3.70. EOS has made concerted efforts at the resistance so as to move up the price ladder.

 

Previously, the bulls have successfully prevailed over the downtrend line as the coin moves up. Similarly, if the current resistance level is surmounted, the coin will move up again to either $4.60 or $5 price level. Nonetheless, if EOS fails to move up, the coin will fall and find support at $3.20.

 

EOSUSD - Daily Chart

Daily Chart Indicators Reading:

The RSI period 14 levels 58 signify that EOS is falling and approaching the sideways trend zone. EOS is at the point of a bullish crossover which means that EOS may rise. The downtrend line has already been broken as the market went up. It is unlikely for the selling pressure to resume and price fall below the downtrend line. If it does price may retrace to a low of $ 3.20.

 

EOS/USD Medium-term bias: Bullish

On the 4-hour chart, the EOS fell to a low of $2.60 in September and October to resume a bullish move. In September, the market went up but was resisted and it dropped to another low at $2.60.

 

At this low, a trend line is drawn to establish the level of price movement. The uptrend is said to be continuing if the price makes higher highs and higher lows. Nevertheless, if the market falls and breaks below the trend line, the uptrend is said to be ended.

 

EOSUSD- 4-Hour Chart

4-hour Chart Indicators Reading

EOS is below 40% of the stochastic indicator signifying that price is in a bearish momentum. The EMAs are trending upward suggesting that EOS is rising.

 

General Outlook for EOS

EOS is in a bullish market. At a low of $2.60 in September the bull market was short-lived as it was terminated at $3.20 price level. The bulls embarked on another bullish move in October but faced another resistance at $3.70 after breaking the initial resistance at $3.20.

 

As already indicated in the price analysis, EOS may move up, if it takes care of $3.70 price level. However, on the 4-hour chart, if EOS pulls back and breaks below the trend line, the market will drop again.

BSV/USD Long-term Trend: Bullish
Bitcoin SV is making a surprising upward move after surviving a downtrend from the overhead resistance at $150. The coin fell to a low of $92 and commenced a bullish move. The price upward move can be sustained if the bulls overcome the initial resistance at $115 and $ 120.

Presently, the coin is trading at $108, attempting to break above the previous low in July. In July, the previous low was supported as the market moved up to the $180 price level. Today, the previous low is a resistance level, the price has to break above that low and close. However, BSV will fall to the low of $80, if the bulls fail to break the initial resistance levels.

BSVUSD-Daily Chart

Daily Chart Indicators Reading:
Bitcoin SV is in a bullish momentum above 20% range of the daily stochastic. The market is expected to rise and revisit the previous high of $140. The rise of BSV is depended upon the bulls breaking above the 21-day and 50-day SMAs. The price will be in the bullish trend zone if the price is above the SMAs.

On the 4-hour chart, the price tested the support above $92 before embarking on the bullish movement. The formation is in the form of a bullish double bottom indicating that the coin is likely to rise. The coin is expected to rise above the $120 and retest the overhead resistance at $140.

USDCHF: Upside Momentum Attempt At Parity Losses Steam, Running Into Sellers

USDCHF Price Analysis – November 26

The USDCHF reached a new daily high of the level at 0.9987 at the start of the European session but failed to maintain momentum as investors refrained from taking important positions pending further developments on the trade dispute between the United States and China. At the time of writing, the pair was up 0.07% on the day on the level at 0.9970.

Key Levels

Resistance Levels: 1.0231, 1.0126, 1.0027
Support Levels: 0.9869, 0.9798, 0.9659

USDCHF-DAILY-Nov-26.png

USDCHF Long term Trend: Bullish

Overall, only the medium-term trend stays neutral, with USDCHF remaining in the range of the level at 0.9659 / 1.0231. In all cases, a decisive break of the level at 1.0231 is needed to indicate a recovery of the uptrend.

Otherwise, a more parallel trend may lead to another plunge. Meanwhile, the support break of the level at 0.9890 may instead target support on the level at 0.9841. The outlook is bullish, displaying yet an intact uptrend in the short and long-term trend.

USDCHF-4-HOUR-Nov-26.png

USDCHF Short term Trend: Bullish

The USDCHF is losing ground from the upside, as shown by the 4-hour RSI. But with minor support intact on the level at 0.9949, the intraday bias stays slightly higher. Consolidation starting on the level at 1.0027 should end at the level at 0.9869.

A new advance may be seen to test the level at 1.0027 again first. While a break there may resume its total advance from the level at 0.9659 to retracement from the level at 1.0237 to 0.9659 to 1.0126. On the flip side, a break of the level at 0.9949 minor support may tip the balance forward to extend the consolidation with another foot down.

GBPUSD Price: Following Recouping From The Low, British Pound Anticipates Upward Momentum

GBPUSD Price Analysis – December 1

The pound had a positive prior week as traders anticipate to build the scenario for buyers to step in, and now it seems likely to continue on the upside. If we can exceed the crucial level on the level at 1.3012, it is likely that the pound sterling takes off towards the level of 1.3185, and then possibly even the level of 1.3301 depending on the extent buyers push the FX pair.

Key Levels
Resistance Levels: 1.3301, 1.3185, 1.3012
Support Levels: 1.2768, 1.2582, 1.1958

GBPUSD-Daily-Dec-1.png

GBPUSD Long term Trend: Bullish

In the longer term, the increase from the level at 1.1958 is viewed as consolidation from beneath. A new advance towards resistance on the level at 1.3301 may be seen. At the moment, this may continue to be the preferred scenario as long as the level at 1.2582 resistance turned support stays intact.

However, the firm break of the level at 1.2582 may shift the target towards the level at 1.1958 low and further beneath. The outlook stays bullish, displaying an intact uptrend in the short and long-term.

GBPUSD-4-Hour-Dec-1.png

GBPUSD Short term Trend: Bullish

GBPUSD remained in consolidation since hitting the level at 1.3012 in the prior week while the trend is unaltered. The initial bias may stay neutral initially for this week. The retracement may be limited by the level at 1.2768 support.

Although on the positive side, the break of the level at 1.3012 may reactivate the entire rally from the level at 1.1958. However, the break of the level at 1.2768 may advance a further plunge to the level at 1.2582 resistance turned support.

Sterling Advances Barely Hours To UK Elections As Latest Poll Predicts Conservatives Win

In just two days from now, a major event that will set the trend for the currency market for the year 2020, the UK elections will be held. In the face of a Brexit extension, UK prime minister had pushed for an earlier election in the hopes of having a majority conservatives win in the parliament which will make the Brexit deal pass through easily.

As the clock ticks, with barely less than 48 hours to this epochal event, the newest poll by Survation conducted for ITV’s good morning Britain show predicts a Boris Johnson win by 14 pts. ahead of Jeremy Corbyn‘s Labour party. The Brexit deal seemed to give the conservatives an edge as it accounted for 32% of the vote decision while NHS gave Labour party a slight edge. On the overall, a majority vote of 42% was predicted for the conservatives while Labour had 28%.

Market Reaction as the Clock Ticks
Optimism looms in the market as the prediction of a conservatives win will ease Britain’s exit from Europe by January 31 deadline.

The EUR/GBP pair continued to fall till the early hours of today breaking the 0.8411 trend line targeting the 0.8149 resistance level. GBP/USD pair rebounded to consolidate briefly targeting 1.3381 resistance levels. Technical analysis within a 4-hour MACD shows that both pairs may likely touch down. CAD edged slightly higher advanced by USMCA news but yet to consolidate gains.

Market-Reaction.png

The USD against a basket of five major currencies held steady awaiting FOMC’s minutes due out tomorrow.

Against a basket of currencies, NZD’s dominance is the highest. Sterling also gained momentum firmed up by approaching UK elections.

The safe-haven, the Japanese yen, and Swiss franc remain pressured as major events that will shape the market for 2020 are been anticipated.

On the Asia side, significant market activity wasn’t recorded as most currency pairs held steady within a day’s range.

In the Asian stock market, not so much activity was recorded being weakened by recently released Chinese PMI numbers.

Most of the indexes closed a little lower while US stocks rose swiftly after Friday’s release of US non-farm payroll reports. The outcome of the December 15 deadline set by the US for the signing of a preliminary trade pact will determine the week’s direction and even further into the year 2020.

Also due out later in the week is UK GDP figures and ZEW released out of Germany.

GBPJPY Reverses To The Downside In A Corrective Move

GBPJPY Price Analysis – December 18

Since the trading session on Tuesday, the currency pair has fallen by almost 303 basis points against the Japanese yen. As for the near future, the GBPJPY exchange rate may recover on a cluster formed by the daily trend line at 143.07. If the cluster holds, a reversal is possible during this session.

Key Levels
Resistance Levels: 148.66, 147.95, 146.57
Support levels: 142.47, 139.31, 126.54

GBPJPY-DAILY-DEC-18.png

GBPJPY Long term Trend: Bullish

In the longer term, an increase from the level of 126.54 may likely be a consolidation pattern from the level of 122.75 (low) or the beginning of a fresh uptrend. In any case, a more rally is anticipated, while the support level of 139.31 is held in the resistance zone of the level of 146.57 / 148.66.

The result from here may show the scenario it is supposed to be. Failure to do so may expand long-term range trend. A decisive breakout of the level at 148.66 may have long-term bullish consequences.

GBPJPY-4-HOUR-DEC-18.png

GBPJPY Short term Trend: Bullish

GBPJPY intraday bias remains neutral as the correction from the level of 147.95 expands. The downtrend is expected to be limited above the support level of 142.47, which may lead to continued growth.

On the other hand, above the level of 147.95, it can reach the level of structural resistance of 148.66 in the first place. A breakout may reach the next key resistance in the following. Nevertheless, a break of the level at 142.47 may indicate a short-term trend and lead to a further rollback to the support level of 139.31.

Instrument: GBPJPY
Order: Buy
Entry price: 142.47

Key Support Levels: $0.25, $0.20, $0.15

XRP/USD Long-term Trend: Bearish
Ripple has depreciated further and it is now trading at $0.18 at the time of writing. The price was previous fluctuating between the levels of $20 and $0.23. It was assumed in the previous analysis that if the bears break the $0.20 low, the downtrend will resume. On December 17, the bears break the $0.20 support, and the downtrend resumed. The market has fallen to $0.18 which is the previous low in 2017. The coin will likely pause and rebound at this support level. On the other hand, selling pressure may continue.

XRP/USD - Daily Chart

Daily Chart Indicators Reading:
The Relative Strength Index period 14 level 21 indicates that Ripple is oversold as the market reaches the oversold region, buyers are likely to emerge. In the oversold region, buyers emerge to take control of price. The 21-day SMA and the 50-day SMA are pointing southward indicating the downward move.

XRP/USD Medium-term Prediction: Ranging
On the 4-hour chart, the bears have broken the support at $0.20 as the market falls to the low of $0.18. The bears have terminated the price range of $0.20 and $0.23. The price has fallen to a low of $0.18 as the market consolidates above it. Ripple may rebound if the bulls defend the current level. However, if the bears break the current level, Ripple will be in serious depreciation.

XRP/USD - 4 Hour Chart

4-hour Chart Indicators Reading
The stochastic is trading now below the 20% range of the oversold region. This indicates that the coin is in a bearish momentum. The blue and red lines of the daily stochastic are trending horizontally meaning that the bearish momentum has been weakened.

General Outlook for Ripple (XRP)
Ripple is now in a bear market as price breaks the support line of the horizontal channel. The bearish trend also terminates the sideways trend. Ripple is currently fluctuating above  $0.18. A rebound is possible if the bulls defend the support level. Besides, the coin is in the oversold region suggesting buyers to take control of price.

USDCHF Market Activity Subdued Beneath 0.9833 Level 

USDCHF Price Analysis – December 24

The USDCHF pair recorded a small daily gain on Monday and entered the consolidation phase on Tuesday, as the markets seem to be already in a festive mood. At the time of writing, the pair remained unchanged at 0.9817 level.

Key Levels
Resistance Levels: 1.0231, 1.0027, 0.9876
Support Levels: 0.9770, 0.9659, 0.9541

USDCHF-DAILY-Dec-24.png

USDCHF Long term Trend: Ranging

In the long run, the long-term trend remains neutral, while the USDCHF is trending in the range of 0.9659 / 1.0231. In any case, a decisive breakthrough of the level at 1.0231 is necessary to indicate the resumption of an uptrend.

Otherwise, trading with a large range may be registered with the risk of another fall. Meanwhile, a break of the support level of 0.9695 may try to break through the support level of 0.9541.

USDCHF-4-Hours-Dec-24.png

USDCHF Short term Trend: Bearish

USDCHF remains in the range of the level at 0.9770 and its intraday bias remains neutral. An even greater fall is expected as long as the resistance level of 0.9876 holds.

On the other hand, below the level of 0.9770, a fall from level 1.0027 may again be activated and approach the minimum level of 0.9659. Although a breakthrough of the level at 0.9876 can change the bias back to the side of increasing the resistance level at 1.0027.

Instrument: USDCHF
Order: Sell
Entry price: 0.9833
Stop: 0.9876

Stellar (XLM) Pullback Inconclusive, Further Selling Pressure Likely

Key Resistance Levels: $0.09, $0.10, $0.11
Key Support Levels: $0.06, $0.05,$0.04

XLM/USD Long-term Trend: Ranging
Stellar has been relatively slow in price movement. On December 17, the coin fell to a low of $0.042. In defense of the current low, the price pulled back to a high of $0.046. The price movement has been insignificant as the market commences consolidation above the current price level.

Consolidation at the oversold region implies that buyers and sellers have reached equilibrium at the current price level. Stellar lacks buying at a lower level as the bears may take undue advantage to sink XLM to the $0.036 low. Alternatively, if the bulls continue their hold above the $0.042, the market will continue the sideways trend.

XLMUSD -Daily Chart

Daily Chart Indicators Reading:
Stellar is making frantic efforts to rise, as the coin is trading above the 25% range of the daily stochastic. This implies that the market is also in a bullish momentum. The 21-day SMA and the 50-day SMA are trending horizontally indicating the price range.

XLM/USD Medium-term bias: Bearish
On the 4 hour chart, the bear market exhausted its bearish run at the $0.042 support level. The coin is in a bullish move but  it is struggling above the $0.046 price level. The price action is characterized by small body candlesticks that are responsible for the range-bound movement.

XLMUSD - 4 Hour Chart

4-hour Chart Indicators Reading
The Relative Strength Index period 14 level 52 is above the centerline 50 which indicates that the price is rising. XLM may further depreciate if the support line of the channel is breached.

General Outlook for Stellar
Stellar is still in a downtrend. The coin is still at the bottom of the chart. Buyers are scarce at the lower price level to push Stellar upward. The market may depreciate further if the bulls fail to hold the $0.042 support.

The USDCHF Is Weakening While Selling Continues Beneath 0.9695 Level

USDCHF Price Analysis – December 31

After the Asian session, moving sideways near the level of 0.9695, the USDCHF pair lost its movement in the last hour and touched the lowest level since early November at 0.9662. At the time of writing, the pair fell by 0.23% per day at 0.9660 level.

Key Levels
Resistance Levels: 1.0231, 0.9833, 0.9695
Support Levels: 0.9659, 0.9600, 0.9541

USDCHF-Daily-DEC-31.png

USDCHF Long term Trend: Bearish

In a broader context, the long-term outlook stays bearish, as USD / CHF is in the range of 0.9659 / 1.0231. In any case, a decisive breakthrough of 0.9659 level is required to indicate the resumption of a downtrend.

Otherwise, more side trading may be recorded with the risk of another rebound. Meanwhile, a breakthrough of the level at 0.9695 support may aim at the level at 0.9541 support.

USDCHF-4-Hour-Dec-31.png

USDCHF Short term Trend: Bearish

The intraday bias in USDCHF stays on the downside at this phase. At the moment, a plunge from the level of 1.0027 may break below the support level of 0.9659.

On the other hand, a slight break of resistance above the level at 0.9739 may change the neutrality of the intraday bias and lead to consolidation first, before starting another decline.

EURUSD Rallies Maintain Upside Momentum Close To The Price Level At 1.1200

EURUSD Price Analysis – December 30

The EURUSD pair spiked to the highest level since mid-August at the price level of 1.1211 and entered the consolidation phase. At the time of writing, the pair was ranging near the price level of 1.1200, adding 0.2% per day.

Key Levels
Resistance Levels: 1.1515, 1.1450, 1.1280
Support Levels: 1.1178, 1.0981, 1.0879

EURUSD-Daily-Dec-30.png

EURUSD Long term Trend: Ranging

In the larger trend, the rebound from the level at 1.0879 is considered as a corrective movement at this stage. While anticipating a further advance, the growth potential may be contained by the recovery from the level at 1.1450 to 1.0879 to 1.1515.

While the downtrend from the level at 1.1450 (high) may continue at a later time. Nevertheless, a steady breakthrough of the 1.1515 level may weaken this bearish look and lead to stronger growth past the upside level at 1.1515.

EURUSD-4-hour-Dec-30.png

EURUSD Short term Trend: Bullish

EURUSD so far advances to the level at 1.1210 during today’s trading. Violation of resistance on the 1.200 level indicates the continuation of the entire rebound from the level at 1.0879.

The intraday bias is currently on the rise for a 100% forecast from the level at 1.0879 to 1.1178 from 1.0981 to 1.1280 in the following sequence. In any case, the short-term forecast will stay cautious as long as the support of the level at 1.1066 persists, howbeit a pullback occurs.

Cosmos (ATOM) Bounces But Struggles At $4.50 Resistan

Key Resistance Levels: $5, $6, $7
Key Support Levels: $3, $2, $1

ATOM/USD Price Long-term Trend: Bullish
Cosmos is now in a bull market. Currently, the coin is trading below the $4.50 resistance. In retrospect, the bear market was terminated at a low of $2 and the coin rebounded. The upward move was resisted at a $3.40 price level. The coin fell and retested the previous low at $2.

Cosmos is now in a bullish move as it broke the previous resistance at $3.40. The upward move was finally halted at the $4.50 resistance on November 11. Cosmos slumped to the low of $3 and resumed another bullish move to retest the overhead resistance. Presently the coin is facing price rejection at the overhead resistance.

ATOM/USD - Daily Chart

Daily Chart Indicators Reading:
The stochastic indicator is above the 50% range which indicates that the Cosmos is in a bullish momentum. The market is actually rising but the bulls are finding it difficult to penetrate the overhead resistance.

The simple moving averages are pointing northward indicating that the coin is rising. From the Fibonacci tool, it indicates that Cosmos is likely to reverse at the 1.272 extension level. Earlier a bullish candlestick body tested the 0.786 retracement level which gave a clue of the trend reversal.

ATOM/USD Medium-term bias: Bullish
On the 4-hour chart, the coin is also in a bullish move. The coin was facing resistance at $4 but after a retest, the resistance was broken. However, the bulls went up again but could not penetrate the overhead resistance. The market is in a sideways move below the $4.50 overhead resistance.

ATOM/USD - 4-Hour Chart

4-hour Chart Indicators Reading
The Relative Strength Index period 14 level 61 is above the centerline 50. This indicates the coin is in a bullish trend zone. The market is said to be in an uptrend. However, a bullish break at $4.50 resistance will catapult the coin to a high of $7.0.

General Outlook for Cosmos (ATOM)
Cosmos is in a bull market but yet to break the overhead resistance. Each time the bulls test the overhead resistance, the coin will fall or retrace to the next support. The coin is lacking buyers at the upper price levels. Possibly a bullish break at the overhead resistance will push the coin to higher price levels. Nevertheless, if the bulls fail to break the overhead resistance, the bears will take undue advantage to sink the coin below the support line. This will plunge the coin to its previous low.

Bitcoin (BTC) Breaches More Resistances, Attempts To Terminate Downtrend

Key Resistance Zones: $10,000, $11,000, $12,000
Key Support Zones: $7, 000, $6, 000, $5,000

BTC/USD Long-term Trend: Bullish
Yesterday, the bulls made an impressive move as the bulls reach a high of $8,400. The coin was resisted and the price retraced to a low of $7,800. The support is holding which was previously a resistance level. This is an advantage to the bulls. The bulls are making a fresh attempt to revisit the $8,400 resistance. Possibly, a break above the resistance will propel Bitcoin to reach a high of $9,200. Caution must be taken as the bears will not throw in the towel for the bulls to take control of price.

BTC/USD - Daily Chart

Daily Chart Indicators Reading:
The bulls are attempting to break the downtrend line. The first time the bulls break the downtrend line, the price could not be sustained above it. This resulted in the retracement of the coin. In the second attempt, if the downtrend line is breached and the price is closed above it. Bitcoin will resume its uptrend move.

BTC/USD Medium-term bias: Bullish
On the 4 hour chart, the bulls tested the resistance at $8,400 twice before falling to the low of $7,800. Bitcoin will need more buyers at this level to sustain the current momentum. On the upside, the bulls have to break above the resistance and the price is sustained above it.

BTC/USD - 4 Hour Chart

4-hour Chart Indicators Reading
Bitcoin is now trading above the 25% range of the daily stochastic. This indicates that Bitcoin is in bullish momentum. On the upside, if the price breaks above the resistance and it closes above it. The uptrend will resume. Conversely, if the price breaks below the support line and it closes below it, the selling pressure will resume.

General Outlook for Bitcoin (BTC)
Bitcoin is making a positive move in the recent highs. The pair is currently battling the resistance at $8,400. Buyers need to overwhelm the sellers at the current resistance, for the price to scale through to the higher price levels. Traders should adjust their parameters if a breakout occurs.

Gold Stays Constricted In A Restricted Trading Range Around $1550 Level

XAUUSD Price Analysis – January 10

Gold rose in price in response to the grim release of NFP in the US, although it lacked a strong follow-up from buyers and stayed within the trading range of the previous session. Over the past 24 hours, the yellow metal has been trading in a limited trading range near the level of $ 1,550.

Key Levels
Resistance Levels: $ 1640, $ 1625, $1611
Support Levels: $ 1557, $ 1540, $ 1517

XAUUSD-Daily-Jan-10.png

XAUUSD Long term Trend: Bullish

The yellow metal is consolidating on the previous resistance, unfolded by a horizontal support line, and also indicates further weakness while a continued decline may lead to a fall in gold to the level of $ 1,540 shortly.

However, if this level does not hold, the price of gold may likely go down during the next trading session. In this case, the yellow metal may fall beneath the $ 1,517.

XAUUSD-4-Hours-Jan-10.png

XAUUSD Short term Trend: Bullish

The recent fundamental surge managed to soon go to top the upper trend line of the pair, which reflects the jump in the yellow metal from 2017. However, the price immediately receded.

At present, we expect a push down to the price level of $ 1,517. A rebound from the level of $ 1,557.07 may cause the price to rise to the level of $ 1,575 and the level of $ 1,585.

Instrument: XAUUSD
Order: Buy
Entry price: $1557.07
Stop: $1517
Target: $1595

    • ANALAYST 75..LIKE A PLAGUE.. hird plague pandemic From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia     Jump to navigation Jump to search For another third round of a pandemic, see Third cholera pandemic.   Plague patient being injected by a doctor 1897 in Karachi.   Picture of Manchurian plague victims in 1910–1911 Third Pandemic is the designation of a major bubonic plague pandemic that began in Yunnan province in China in 1855, fifth year of the Xianfeng Emperor of the Qing dynasty.[1] This episode of bubonic plague spread to all inhabited continents, and ultimately more than 12 million people died in India and China, with about 10 million killed in India alone.[2] According to the World Health Organization, the pandemic was considered active until 1960, when worldwide casualties dropped to 200 per year.[3] The name refers to this pandemic being the third major bubonic plague outbreak to affect European society. The first was the Plague of Justinian, which ravaged the Byzantine Empire and surrounding areas in 541 and 542. The second was the Black Death, which killed at least one third of Europe's population in a series of expanding waves of infection from 1346 to 1353.[4] Casualty patterns indicate that waves of this late-19th-century/early-20th-century pandemic may have been from two different sources. The first was primarily bubonic and was carried around the world through ocean-going trade, through transporting infected persons, rats, and cargoes harboring fleas. The second, more virulent strain, was primarily pneumonic in character with a strong person-to-person contagion. This strain was largely confined to Asia, in particular Manchuria and Mongolia. Contents 1 Pattern of the pandemic 1.1 Origin in Yunnan Province of China 1.2 Political impact in colonial India 1.3 Global distribution 1.4 The 1894 Hong Kong plague 2 Disease research 3 See also 4 References 5 Further reading 6 External links Pattern of the pandemic The bubonic plague was endemic in populations of infected ground rodents in central Asia, and was a known cause of death among migrant and established human populations in that region for centuries. An influx of new people due to political conflicts and global trade led to the distribution of this disease throughout the world. Origin in Yunnan Province of China A natural reservoir or nidus for plague is located in western Yunnan and is an ongoing health risk today. The third pandemic of plague originated in this area after a rapid influx of Han Chinese to exploit the demand for minerals, primarily copper, in the latter half of the nineteenth century.[5] By 1850, the population had exploded to over 7 million people. Increasing transportation throughout the region brought people in contact with plague-infected fleas, the primary vector between the yellow-breasted rat (Rattus flavipectus) and humans. People brought the fleas and rats back into growing urban areas, where small outbreaks sometimes reached epidemic proportions. The plague spread further after disputes between Han Chinese and Hui Muslim miners in the early 1850s erupted into a violent uprising known as the Panthay rebellion, which led to further displacements (troop movements and refugee migrations). The outbreak of the plague helped recruit people into the Taiping Rebellion. In the latter half of the nineteenth century the plague began to appear in Guangxi and Guangdong provinces, Hainan Island, and later the Pearl River delta including Canton and Hong Kong. While William McNeil and others thought that the plague was brought from the interior to the coastal regions by troops returning from battles against the Muslim rebels, Benedict suggests that the evidence favors the growing and lucrative opium trade that began after about 1840.[5] In the city of Canton, beginning in March 1894, the disease killed 60,000 people in a few weeks. Daily water-traffic with the nearby city of Hong Kong rapidly spread the plague. Within two months, after 100,000 deaths, the death rates dropped below epidemic rates, although the disease continued to be endemic in Hong Kong until 1929.[6] Political impact in colonial India   Directions for searchers, Pune plague of 1897 The plague, which was brought from Hong Kong to British India, killed about 10 million in India,[7]it later also killed another 12.5 million in the British colony India in the next following thirty years. Almost all cases were bubonic, with only a very small percentage changing to pneumonic plague. (Orent, p. 185) The disease was initially seen in port cities, beginning with Bombay (now Mumbai), but later emerged in Pune, Kolkata, and Karachi (now in Pakistan). By 1899, the outbreak spread to smaller communities and rural areas in many regions of India. Overall, the impact of plague epidemics was greatest in western and northern India—in the provinces then designated as Bombay, Punjab, and the United Provinces—while eastern and southern India were not as badly affected. The colonial government's measures to control the disease included quarantine, isolation camps, travel restrictions and the exclusion of India's traditional medical practices. Restrictions on the populations of the coastal cities were established by Special Plague Committees with overreaching powers, and enforced by the British military. Indians found these measures culturally intrusive and, in general, repressive and tyrannical. Government strategies of plague control underwent significant changes during 1898–1899. By that time, it was apparent that the use of force in enforcing plague regulations was proving counter-productive and, now that the plague had spread to rural areas, enforcement in larger geographic areas would be impossible. At this time, British health officials began to press for widespread vaccination using Waldemar Haffkine’s plague vaccine, although the government stressed that inoculation was not compulsory. British authorities also authorized the inclusion of practitioners of indigenous systems of medicine into plague prevention programs. Repressive government actions to control the plague led the Pune nationalists to criticise the government publicly. On 22 June 1897, the Chapekar brothers, young Pune Hindus, shot and killed Walter Charles Rand, an Indian Civil Services officer acting as Pune Special Plague Committee chairman, and his military escort, Lieutenant Ayerst. The action of the Chapekars was seen as terrorism.[8] The government also found the nationalist press guilty of incitement. Independence activist Bal Gangadhar Tilak was charged with sedition for his writings as editor of the Kesari newspaper. He was sentenced to eighteen months rigorous imprisonment. Public reaction to the health measures enacted by the British Indian state ultimately revealed the political constraints of medical intervention in the country. These experiences were formative in the development of India's modern public health services.[citation needed] Global distribution The network of global shipping ensured the widespread distribution of the disease over the next few decades.[9][10][11] Recorded outbreaks include: Pakhoi, China 1882. Canton, China 1894. Hong Kong 1894. Taiwan, Japan 1896 (until 1923 Great Kantō earthquake). Jeddah, 1896. Mecca, 1898. Medina, 1898.[12] Bombay Presidency, India 1896–1898. Calcutta, India 1898. Madagascar, 1898. Kobe, 1898. San Francisco, 1899. Egypt, 1899. Manchuria, China 1899. Paraguay, 1899. South Africa, 1899–1902. Republic of Hawaii, 1899.[13][14] Glasgow, United Kingdom, 1900.[15] San Francisco, United States, 1900.[16][17][18] Manila, 1900. Australia, 1900–1905. Russian Empire/Soviet Union, 1900–1927. Fukien Province, China 1901. Siam, 1904. Burma, 1905. Tunisia, 1907. Trinidad, Venezuela, Peru and Ecuador, 1908. Bolivia and Brazil, 1908. Cuba and Puerto Rico, 1912. Each of these areas, as well as Great Britain, France, and other areas of Europe, continued to experience plague outbreaks and casualties until the 1960s. The last significant outbreak of plague associated with the pandemic occurred in Peru and Argentina in 1945. The 1894 Hong Kong plague The 1894 Hong Kong plague was a major outbreak of the third pandemic in the world from the late 19th century to the early 20th century. In May 1894, the first case occurred in Hong Kong. The patient was a national hospital clerk and was discovered by Dr. Yu Xun, the dean of the National Hospital, who had just returned from Guangzhou. When the Chinese-style buildings were built, the Taiping Mountain area in Sheung Wan, the most densely populated area in Hong Kong, became the hardest hit area of the epidemic. Controlling the epidemic naturally became the top priority of the Governor of Hong Kong. From May to October 1894, the plague in Hong Kong killed more than 2,000 people and one-third of the population fled Hong Kong. In the 30 years after 1926, the plague occurred in Hong Kong almost every year, killing more than 20,000 people. Through the maritime traffic in Hong Kong, the plague epidemic originating in Yunnan, China, spread to all parts of the country after 1894 and eventually spread to all continents where humans live.[citation needed] There were several reasons for the rapid outbreak and rapid spread of the plague. First, in the early days of Kailuan, Sheung Wan was a Chinese settlement. It is located in the mountains. The design of the houses there included no drainage channels, toilets or running water. Intensive buildings and a lack of floor tiles were also weaknesses in housing design at the time. Secondly, during the Ching Ming Festival in 1894, many Chinese living in Hong Kong returned to the countryside to sweep the graves, which coincided with the outbreak of the epidemic in Guangzhou and the introduction of bacteria into Hong Kong. In addition, in the first four months of 1894, rainfall decreased and soil dried up, accelerating the spread of the plague.[19] The measures[which?] mainly included three aspects: setting up plague hospitals and deploying medical staff to treat and isolate plague patients; conducting house-to-house search operations, discovering and transferring plague patients, and cleaning and disinfecting infected houses and areas; and setting up designated cemeteries and assigning a person responsible for transporting and burying the plague dead.[20] Disease research Researchers working in Asia during the "Third Pandemic" identified plague vectors and the plague bacillus. In 1894, in Hong Kong, Swiss-born French bacteriologist Alexandre Yersin isolated the responsible bacterium (Yersinia pestis, named for Yersin) and determined the common mode of transmission. His discoveries led in time to modern treatment methods, including insecticides, the use of antibiotics and eventually plague vaccines. In 1898, French researcher Paul-Louis Simond demonstrated the role of fleas as a vector. The disease is caused by a bacterium usually transmitted by the bite of fleas from an infected host, often a black rat. The bacteria are transferred from the blood of infected rats to the rat flea (Xenopsylla cheopsis). The bacillus multiplies in the stomach of the flea, blocking it. When the flea next bites a mammal, the consumed blood is regurgitated along with the bacillus into the bloodstream of the bitten animal. Any serious outbreak of plague in humans is preceded by an outbreak in the rodent population. During the outbreak, infected fleas that have lost their normal rodent hosts seek other sources of blood. The British colonial government in India pressed medical researcher Waldemar Haffkine to develop a plague vaccine. After three months of persistent work with a limited staff, a form for human trials was ready. On January 10, 1897 Haffkine tested it on himself. After the initial test was reported to the authorities, volunteers at the Byculla jail were used in a control test, all inoculated prisoners survived the epidemics, while seven inmates of the control group died. By the turn of the century, the number of inoculees in India alone reached four million. Haffkine was appointed the Director of the Plague Laboratory (now called Haffkine Institute) in Bombay.[21] See also Timeline of plague Great Plague of London (1665) References   Cohn, Samuel K.
