February 20, 2020 : EUR/USD Intraday technical analysis and trade recommendations.

On December 30, a bearish ABC reversal pattern was initiated around 1.1235 (Previous Key-zone) just before another bearish movement could take place towards 1.1100 (In the meanwhile, the EURUSD pair was losing much of its bearish momentum).One more bullish pullback was executed towards 1.1175 where the depicted key-zone as well as the recently-broken uptrend were located. That’s why, quick bearish decline was executed towards 1.1100 then 1.1035 which failed to provide enough bullish SUPPORT for the EURUSD pair.Further bearish decline took place towards 1.1000 where the pair looked quite oversold around the lower limit of the depicted bearish channel where significant bullish rejection was able to push the pair back towards the nearest SUPPLY levels around 1.1080-1.1100 (confluence of supply levels (including the upper limit of the channel).Since then, the pair has been down-trending within the depicted bearish channel until last week when bearish decline went further below 1.0950 and 1.0910 (Fibonacci Expansion levels 78.6% and 100%) establishing a new low around 1.0790.Currently, the EUR/USD pair looks quite oversold after such a long bearish decline and if bullish recovery is expressed above 1.0845-1.0860, further bullish advancement would be expected towards 1.0910 then 1.0950.Intraday traders are advised to look for signs of…

BTC analysis for 02.20.2020 – Crash on the BTC as we expected, our both downwarrd targets are met but potential for even

Industry news:Brendan Blumer, the CEO of Block.one – the publisher of EOS, has said that Bitcoin isn’t money and that it never will be. However, he believes that it’s the “next generation of gold.” His tweets came as a response to Peter Schiff, who once again bashed Bitcoin.Blumer has been consistent in his views of Bitcoin. He has previously said that it shares core values with gold, as well as supply integrity. Moreover, he also believes that “anyone egregiously attacking one in favor of the other is undermining both, while highlighting their own insecurities in regards to their chose favorite.”Indeed, many people have compared Bitcoin to Gold in the past. One of them was the Chairman of the US Federal Reserve, Jerome Powell. He said that Bitcoin is “a store of value; it’s a speculative store of value, like gold.”Technical analysis:BTC has been trading downwards as I expected. Both my targets at $9.828 and $9.614 have been reached but there is still room for further downside. Watch for selling opportunities on the rallies with the next main target at the price of $9.060.Watch for potential downside rotation if you see bear continuation pattern like bear flag on hourly or 4H time-frame….

Trading recommendations for EURUSD pair on February 20

From a comprehensive analysis, we see another slowdown in the area of lows, where downward interest is still a priority. Now, about the details. A steady bearish interest is striking in its stability, where a move of more than 440 points has been formed since the beginning of the year. This value hides not just a movement but the structure of the global trend. So the theory of downward development is now in the center of everyone’s attention since the euro updates local minimums almost on a daily basis. Psychological ranges (1.0700/1.0850; 1.0500/1.0700; 1.0000//1.0350//1.0500) increase the interest of speculators, however, they are alarming since there may be a stop with a reverse surge at any moment. If we consider the theory in terms of the medium-term course, it is too early to worry since the main flow of emotions will come during price fluctuations in the range of 1.0000//1.0350//1.0500 where without the support of the information background, speculators will not get along.
In terms of volatility, we see a sharp slowdown of 35% relative to the average daily indicator and the regularity of past periods has shown that such significant stops bring new bursts of activity.

Markets gone mad

Good afternoon, dear traders!
I think I will not surprise anyone if I say that at a very interesting time we live and trade. Recently, the market has changed a lot, and this, in my opinion, is connected with the economic crisis, which, in my opinion, is already underway. The trigger was the Chinese epidemic of coronavirus. This virus, in addition to casualties, brought incredible fear, which pushed gold to distance.
But the most affected are the currencies. Everything falls – the EUR/USD, GBP/USD, AUD/USD, and absolutely ignoring the positive news on base currencies.
EUR/USD has been falling recoilless already on the 14th day as part of a common two-year fall! Look at the stories – when did this happen and at what events? The last time this happened is in 2018, and before that during the crisis in 2014.
You, of course, say that everything is bad in the eurozone! Let’s look further.
GBP/USD completely ignores the positive news in the country’s economy.
AUD/USD plummets to good employment, breaking through the lows of 2018 and 2019: The “fear indicator”, gold, is at its highest point in the last 7 or 8 years, completely ignoring…
