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.

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.

Euro, pull yourself together!

The total weakening of the European currency is starting to seriously worry the market. It looks like a protracted disease that the euro cannot get rid of. Experts fear that with a prolonged fall in the euro, it will “slip through” all the chances for recovery that the market gives from time to time.
Currently, the single European currency continues to stomp within annual lows, and in relation to the US currency, it has fallen to three-year lows. An extremely weak data on the Eurozone business sentiment index from ZEW became an additional nail in the coffin for the euro. Recall that February of this year, the ZEW economic sentiment indicator for Germany rapidly fell to 8.7 points from 26.7 points recorded in January. Analysts also noted a deterioration in the assessment of the economic situation. By the beginning of this year, the German economy had disappointed the market. A negative reaction to an outbreak of coronavirus infection added fuel to the fire, due to the fact that it can drastically slow down global trade, which will put additional pressure on the euro.
According to reports on the eurozone economy, the current situation is not encouraging either, as the…
