[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

ETHUSD: Double Bottom Pattern Above $1580

Ethereum was unable to sustain its bearish momentum and after touching a low of 1584 on 04th Aug started to correct upwards against the US dollar crossing the $1800 handle in the European trading session today.

We can see a continuous uptick in the prices of Ethereum due to the heavy buying pressure seen since yesterday.

We can clearly see a double-bottom pattern above the $1580 handle which is a bullish pattern and signifies the end of a bearish phase and the start of a bullish phase in the markets.

ETH is now trading just above its pivot level of 1884 and moving into a strong bullish channel. The price of ETHUSD is now testing its classic resistance level of 1895 and Fibonacci resistance level of 1901 after which the path towards 2000 will get cleared.

The relative strength index is at 67 indicating a strong market and the continuation of the uptrend in the markets.

We can see the formation of a bullish harami pattern on the 2-hour time-frame indicating the underlying bullish nature of the markets.

The STOCHRSI is indicating an oversold market, which means that the prices are due for an upwards correction.

All of the technical indicators are giving a strong buy market signal.

All of the moving averages are giving a strong buy signal and we are now looking at the levels of $1900 to $2000 in the short-term range.

ETH is now trading above its 100 hourly simple and exponential moving averages.


  • Ether: bullish reversal seen above the $1580 mark
  • Short-term range appears to be strongly bullish
  • ETH continues to remain above the $1800 level
  • The average true range is indicating less market volatility


Ether: Bullish Reversal Seen Above $1580
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

ETHUSD is now moving into a strongly bullish channel with the prices trading above the $180 handle in the European trading session today.

ETH touched an intraday high of 1911 and an intraday low of 1830 in the Asian trading session today.

We have also detected the formation of the Ichimoku bullish crossover pattern in the 15-minute time frame.

The Williams percent range is also giving a bullish markets signal at the current reading of -28.

The key support levels to watch are $1751 and $1716, and the price of ETHUSD needs to remain above these levels for the continuation of the bullish reversal in the markets.

ETH has increased by 10.87% with a price change of 184$ in the past 24hrs and has a trading volume of 28.383 billion USD.

We can see an increase of 60.00% in the total trading volume in the last 24 hrs which is due to the buying seen by the medium-term Investors.

The Week Ahead

We can see a continuous progression of a bullish trendline from 1580 towards the 1918 level.

The price of Ethereum is now testing its resistance zone located at $2000, and we are likely to see a short-term correction in its levels after touching $2000.

The immediate short-term outlook for Ether has turned strongly bullish, the medium-term outlook has turned bullish, and the long-term outlook for Ether is neutral in present market conditions.

The price of ETHUSD will need to remain above the important support levels of $1700 this week.

The weekly outlook is projected at $1950 with a consolidation zone of $1800.

Technical Indicators:

The relative strength index (14): at 67.52 indicating a BUY

The end of the road for computer hardware as US indices dive
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Those who have worked within any large company in a technical capacity will likely recall the sudden way in which computer hardware simply disappeared seamingly overnight.

Back in the 1990s, huge server farms and arrays of switches adorned massive rooms in most offices worldwide, and stacks of beige plastic desktop PCs whirred away all day.

Cabling was everywhere, and lights flashed as data was carried around the office, and IT professionals observed and controlled these gargantuan operations.

Suddenly, around 15 years ago, it all disappeared.

Server rooms gave way to open spaces and coffee machines, and suddenly the office space business grew toward coworker spaces and remote work.

The old beige stacks of in-house computers were gone, and cloud computing was in vogue.

What's that got to do with the stock market?

Well, quite a lot.

The computer hardware industry has long since disappeared from the top stocks, largely due to the aforementioned cloud computing revolution, but there has been one hardware type that has endured. Graphics cards.

NVIDIA, a publicly-listed American giant which manufactures graphics cards has been the final enduring stock on the blue-chip indices, and has been doing very well until now.

That's because graphics cards are used in cryptocurrency mining, and the vast, industrial-scale Chinese Bitcoin mining rigs which existed in mainland China until last year were using them en masse.

Suddenly, the Chinese government swept in and put an end to the use of cheap (and sometimes free) electricity that the commercial miners in China had been using and banned their operations in mid 2021.

Some operators moved their mining rigs outside China to regions with cheap or free electricity such as Kazakhstan or Armenia, but many gave up and moved on.

Since the cost of electricity in many other countries outweighs the potential gains made by Bitcoin mining, graphics card usage has declined and therefore NVIDIA stock has been volatile.

Right now, its earnings season, and NVIDIA has been in the news for having shown concern about its forthcoming earnings, given that the Bitcoin mining-related demand for graphics cards is down.

During the course of yesterday, the S&P 500 slid 0.4% and the Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 0.2%. The tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite lost 1.2%, closing down for a third consecutive day. Chip stocks are taking a beating after Micron Technology and Nvidia issued revenue warnings, dragging down the overall market with them.

It is perhaps a sign of the times, a sign that the final bastion of hardware-based computer science is coming to its nadir, but also a sign that modern innovation is once again on the march and as gas fees for other cryptocurrencies such as Ethereum will likely decrease, mining and the use of such tokens for other purposes such as smart contracts is the way of the future, all of which of course aim to further the cause of paperless and hardware-free lifestyle and business operations.

Onwards and upwards.

Inflation in the UK: Cash withdrawals indicate faith in pound but not in economy
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]


Throughout post-industrial history, when economic woes are abound, a large proportion of the public tend to revert to reliance on carrying items of physical value.

For the past two years, national economies in many Western nations have been turned on their heads, and faith in the traditional economic system has waned dramatically.

During times of rising inflation, it has been common for many people to invest in physical commodities such as gold, and to keep liquid assets at home or on their person.

Throughout many periods in the 20th century, that has been the case. The Great Depression which began in the late 1920s in the United States, the aftermath of World War Two in Europe, and the end of the Cold War in the late 1980s are three notable examples.

During those events, people who had a lot to lose generally bought gold and kept it in a safe place, often under their homes or in the walls.

The long period of stability which ensued has not necessitated such action, however these days, there are many geopolitical events that have once again generated a wave of instability, and have caused a once-trusting population to distrust the government and the system in many countries worldwide.

Inflation which is at 40-year highs in parts of Europe and the United States, along with forced closures of businesses, interruption of supply chains and siding with Ukraine which has caused havoc on the energy markets and cast doubt into the minds of citizens that their own governments actually represent their wellbeing has brought into being an overall level of self-reliance and movement away from trust in the existing economic structure.

The British Pound and its standing as a store of value is very interesting over recent times.

For over 50 years, no currency in the world has been backed by commodities, therefore it has been rare for any currency to be used as a store of value in times of economic uncertainty, but the British Pound is showing signs of being used as exactly that!

The Post Office, which offers banking services as well as mail has recorded a significant upturn in the number of cash withdrawals recently.

It is possible to withdraw cash from any bank account held with any bank via the Post Office, and therefore this is a good measure of the overall behavior of the public with regard to withdrawals of cash.

Britain’s Post Office, which offers banking services as well as mail, handled a record £801 million ($967 million) in personal cash withdrawals in July.

In total, more than £3.3 billion in cash was withdrawn and deposited over the Post Office’s counters, which the first time the amount has crossed the £3.3 billion threshold in the entire 360 years that the Post Office has been established.

Personal cash withdrawals were up almost 8% month on month at £744 in June, and up over 20% from a year ago to £665 million in July.

The Bank of England expects inflation to be at around 13.3% in October and to remain at elevated levels throughout much of 2023, which is alarming to say the least.

Resorting to holding cash appears to be a method being used to attempt to budget more carefully during these times of high inflation, and the Post Office has also been processing government support for energy bills, an indicator that there are serious problems affording daily bills.

The British Pound remains relatively non-volatile, and certainly it will be interesting to see how long this trend lasts during a period at which many firms are attempting to do away with the use of cash entirely.

Bitcoin touched an intraday high of 23922 in the Asian trading session and an intraday low of 23639 in the Asian trading session today.

Both the STOCH and Williams percent range are indicating overbought levels which means that in the immediate short term, a decline in the prices is expected.

The relative strength index is at 50 indicating a NEUTRAL demand for bitcoin at the current market levels and the continuation of the consolidation phase in the markets.

Bitcoin is now moving above its 100 hourly simple moving average and its 200 hourly simple moving averages.

Some of the major technical indicators are giving a buy signal, which means that in the immediate short term, we are expecting targets of 24000 and 24500.

The average true range is indicating less market volatility with a mildly bullish momentum.


  • Bitcoin: bullish reversal seen above $22425

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

The price of bitcoin is struggling to move above the $24000 handle after it entered into a consolidation zone below the $24000 level.

The overall scenario of the markets is neutral at present; we will have to wait till some clear signals emerge for the medium-term range.

We can see that Ichimoku price is under the cloud in the 15-minute time frame indicating the underlying bearish nature of the markets.

The immediate short-term outlook for bitcoin is neutral; the medium-term outlook has turned neutral; and the long-term outlook remains neutral under present market conditions.

Bitcoin’s support zone is located at $22000 and the prices continue to remain above these levels for the continuation of the bullish reversal in the markets.

The price of BTCUSD is now facing its classic resistance level of 23899 and Fibonacci resistance level of 23932 after which the path towards 24000 will get cleared.

The trendline formation is seen from the $22400 levels towards the $24000, and we are now looking for the continuation of this trend in the hourly time frame.

The price of BTCUSD will need to remain above the important support level of $22000 this week.

The weekly outlook is projected at $24000 with a consolidation zone of $23000.

The Roaring 20s! How trading the markets has advanced in just a few years
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

The 2020s is an exciting time to be trading the global markets.

In the previous decade, the electronic markets went through a revolutionary period. We witnessed the invention and uprising of cryptocurrencies, the 'influencer' generation beginning to move into the financial markets with memes and internet-based trends, and we saw the entire existing framework change in dramatic restructures in the trading methods of financial products traded on the electronic markets in the wake of the 2008/2009 financial crises.

European and American authorities began to make major changes which have fomented the sustainability of the electronic derivatives trading markets where traditional asset classes such as Forex, commodities and equities are concerned, and a whole host of decentralized asset classes have joined them along the way.

As the last exciting decade of revolutionary technological and regulatory development came to an end, the 2020s became a period of limitless innovation, in which FinTech, cryptocurrency and multi-asset trading has been embraced.

Along with the community-driven cryptocurrency revolution and its entry into the mainstream, came various geopolitical milestones that are unprecedented.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Lockdowns, inflation and a volatile commodities market, as well as a myriad of new traders who had switched their ambitions from working for a company prior to the lockdowns to seeking their own financial independence from the convenience of their own laptop or smartphone by trading the markets. We have entered the age of the analytical, pragmatic and goal-orientated trader.

Despite the cryptocurrency revolution and the massive number of people getting involved in investing in Bitcoin, Ethereum and all manner of new native tokens that are now hot property, the commodities market is the hot topic of the decade, and to be more specific: Oil.

Just as the oil market is as traditional as the actual fossil fuel itself, the modern stock market is the absolute opposite! A new era has come about, born out of the minds of mavericks and entrepreneurs seeking to build a community-driven marketplace where influencers are beginning to become market makers in their own right.

Turkish Lira crisis hits corporate borrowers
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

The ongoing crisis that has been affecting the Turkish Lira for several months is showing no sign of giving way, and the country's astonishing inflation rate of over 70% is testimony to the dire situation that the nation's economy is facing.

Turkey is an industrial and commercial powerhouse in the Middle East, and is home to the most developed and diversified industry base in the region, however whilst the productivity and quality of product are both high, and the work ethic is still being clearly demonstrated in a nation which has been open for business during times when others were less so, the Lira and its inflationary backdrop are a massive bugbear.

The US Dollar, along with all other major currencies, has continued to rise significantly against the Turkish Lira, and today's value for the USDTRY is 17.94.

Turkish companies which conduct business on an international basis have been faced with the volatility of Forex transactions when settling accounts with their partners and clients, and the continued decline in value of the Turkish Lira has landed them with a conundrum.

Yesterday the Turkish media reported that companies are borrowing in Lira partly to pay off their debts in foreign currency, and many companies in Turkey have used an average of around 30 Lira out of every 100 Lira borrowed from banks to settle their debts in US Dollars and Euros.

The sustained losses that the Turkish Lira has made against all major currencies over the past year has caused a dramatic increase in servicing the repayments of foreign debt for Turkish businesses, and this is how it is being addressed.

At the end of June, the Turkish government announced a ban on loans in Lira to companies holding what it deemed to be too much foreign currency.

This caused the Lira to whipsaw, a term referring to price movements in a volatile market when a stock or currency price will suddenly switch direction.

By June 27 the Lira made an unusual gain of approximately 8% gain in two days, trading at 16.01 to the US Dollar, up from the day before the announcement where it closed at 17.35.

But by late afternoon on the following Monday, it had pared some of those gains, decreasing slightly to 16.5 against the dollar, after whipsawing within the 16 to 17 lira per dollar range.

Clearly volatility is still rampant, however the switch toward using Lira to repay debt in overseas currencies could be a potential method of circulating the Lira more vigorously which may go some way toward helping it slow its downward spiral.

Currently, however, it is an uncertain market with an almost year-long record of a downward spiral.

Tesla stock has volatile week despite Bitcoin unicorn

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Tesla has been known for as long as it has been in existence as a disruptor of its sector.

Its founder, Elon Musk, is a maverick and a free thinker and has risen to prominence as one of the world's richest men via his methodology of disregarding the well-trodden path and finding ways to reinvent it.

Thus, Elon Musk's influential interest in cryptocurrency has been a well-covered subject over the past year and a half, and his own advocacy of cryptocurrencies ranging from Bitcoin to oddball meme currencies such as Dogecoin has been high profile.

It is fair to say that Elon Musk's interest in cryptocurrency is not just an interest, it positions him as an influencer.

In May 2021, he was responsible for crashing the value of five popular cryptocurrencies by over $700 million, and then partially responsible for causing them to rise to a higher value than before his infamous Twitter post-orientated tumble.

It is therefore fitting that Elon Musk would bring cryptocurrency investment into his commercial portfolio, which he did with Tesla.

By the end of last year, Tesla could lay claim to being the most influential disrupting force in the automotive industry, as well as the only large cap publicly listed corporation which is a Bitcoin whale.

A Bitcoin whale is an entity or person which holds enough Bitcoin to be able to influence the market.

Now, as Tesla remains a major market force and all of the traditional car manufacturers have been rallying to make electric vehicles after over 100 years of not even considering moving away from internal combustion, and as a recent SEC filing showed that the company has made $64 million in gains from bitcoin sales, its own stock is volatile to say the least.

This week, prices are down to $804 per share after a rally last week.

Whether investors in high market cap publicly listed companies are still relatively conservative and don't favor risky and avantgarde strategies such as the Bitcoin trading activities of Tesla is perhaps a matter for discussion, but despite these crypto-fueled gains being made public information, the value of Tesla stock has been declining during the course of this week.

On Friday last week, Tesla stock was trading at $840 per share, so today's $804 is a definitive downturn.

Elon Musk, who is openly pro-free market, and has objected to government lockdowns across Europe and America has this week stated that Tesla’s factories in Germany and Texas are losing billions of dollars as supply-chain snags and battery-cell manufacturing hurdles limit production caused by the draconian lockdowns in 2020 and 2021.

Clearly, regardless of how well capitalized and how much of a market icon Tesla is, foresight, innovation and disruption still equals volatility.

Oil price bonanza may trigger dividend hike for big firms

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

The incessant increase in the price of oil over recent months has been a moot point for many people, especially those in western countries who are now having to battle with the cost of paying for their domestic heating or the painful cost of buying fuel for their car.

What appeared inconceivable last year when oil prices were very low and had only just begun to recover from the negative equity position that crude oil was in in March 2020, is now a very harsh reality for many domestic and commercial consumers, just as it is for commodities traders who have to make their investment in crude oil work against the backdrop of a surprisingly strong US Dollar.

Currently, the price of oil is still extremely high, with Brent Crude commanding a price of $103 per barrel at July 25, and oil companies are quite simply raking in the profits.

The sanctions which were placed on companies in all sectors of industry based in Russia earlier this year have also had an impact on the price of crude oil, as Russia is an OPEC country and has a vast oil and raw materials industry which exports its products globally.

Once the ability for Russian oil companies to access their settlement payments for oil and gas in Euros or US Dollars via European and North American banks became impossible due to the freezing of those accounts, and Russian oil companies ended up insisting that European and American customers settle their oil and gas purchases in Rubles via Russian banks, the US Dollar became less connected to the commodities settlement business and the ruble shot up, but of course overall demand for oil remained very high.

As a result, the dollar value of oil is still high indeed.

Some of the top international oil majors have already announced expectations of extremely high revenues, especially in their refining divisions, for the second quarter of this year.

A number of analysts expect at least some of them to step up share buybacks and some even to announce an increase in dividends due to record cash flows and record or near-record earnings.

Some Western oil companies are doing very well indeed, as this is a global phenomenon and a global supply and demand issue.

French supermajor TotalEnergies said last week that “Refining & Chemicals results are expected to be exceptional given the very high levels of distillate and gasoline cracks.”

American oil giant ExxonMobil revealed in an SEC filing earlier this month that the rise in industry margins is set to add between $4.4 billion and $4.6 billion to its Q2 results.

At Shell, which recently moved its headquarters from its native Holland to London purely so that it can be in the global trading center for electronic financial services, the refining margin nearly tripled in Q2 compared to Q1 and is expected to add between $800 million and $1.2 billion to the second quarter results of Shell’s Products division compared to the first quarter of 2022.

Therefore, not only are oil stocks in view, but oil prices themselves.

ETHUSD and LTCUSD Technical Analysis – 21st JULY, 2022
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

ETHUSD: Hanging Man Pattern Below $1627

Ethereum was unable to sustain its bullish momentum and after touching a high of 1627 on 19th July started to decline against the US dollar coming down below the $1500 handle in the European trading session today.

We can see that ETH is losing ground against the US dollar and no major uptrend formation was seen.

The prices touched an intraday low of $1466 and an intraday high of $1565 in the Asian trading session today.

We can clearly see a hanging man pattern below the $1627 handle which is a bearish pattern and signifies the end of a bullish phase and the start of a bearish phase in the markets.

ETH is now trading just above its pivot levels of 1485 and moving into a mildly bearish channel. The price of ETHUSD is now testing its classic support level of 1450 and Fibonacci support level of 1476 after which the path towards 1300 will get cleared.

The relative strength index is at 39 indicating a weak market and the continuation of the downtrend in the markets.

We can see the progression of a bearish trendline formation from $1627 to $1488 which indicates that we are heading towards $1436.

Both the commodity channel index and Williams percent range are indicating a neutral market.

All of the technical indicators are giving a strong sell market signal.

Most of the moving averages are giving a sell signal, and we are now looking at the levels of $1400 to $1350 in the short-term range.

ETH is now trading above both its 100 hourly simple and exponential moving averages.


  • Ether: bearish reversal seen below the $1627 mark
  • Short-term range appears to be mildly bearish
  • ETH continues to remain above $1400
  • The average true range is indicating less market volatility


Ether: Bearish Reversal Seen Below $1627
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

ETHUSD is now moving into a mildly bearish channel with the prices trading below the $1500 handle in the European trading session today.

We have also detected the formation of MA20 and MA50 crossover patterns located at 1529 and 1545 in the hourly time frame indicating that the price is likely to descend below.

We can see that the prices of Ethereum are slowly preparing for moving into a consolidation channel above the $1400 handle.

We can also see the formation of three black crows patterns in the 15-minute time frame indicating the bearish nature of the markets.

In the 2-hour time frame, the super trend indicator is giving bearish reversal signals.

The key support levels to watch are $1385 and $1335, and the prices of ETHUSD need to remain above these levels for any potential bullish reversal in the markets.

ETH has decreased by 2.79% with a price change of 42$ in the past 24hrs and has a trading volume of 23.086 billion USD.

We can see an increase of 2.31% in the total trading volume in the last 24 hrs. which appears to be normal.

The Week Ahead

We can see that ETH failed to clear the resistance zone located at $1650, and with the continued bearish reversal, we are now heading towards the $1400 level.

The prices of Ethereum are preparing to enter into a consolidation phase below the $1500 level and we can see some range-bounded movements between the $1400 and $1500 levels this week.

The immediate short-term outlook for Ether has turned mildly bearish; the medium-term outlook has turned neutral; and the long-term outlook for Ether is neutral in present market conditions.

The price of ETHUSD will need to remain above the important support level of $1400 this week.

The weekly outlook is projected at $1550 with a consolidation zone of $1400.

Technical Indicators:

STOCH (9,6): at 22.50 indicating a sell

The moving averages convergence divergence (12,26): at -17.75 indicating a sell

The rate of price change: at -3.93 indicating a sell

The ultimate oscillator: at 46.50 indicating a sell

Big Tech stock languishes, whilst UK inflation rampages
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

This week started off with very big moves among the Big Tech stocks on North America's markets, a dynamic which has continued throughout the week so far.

On Monday, Apple stock fell more than 2% in its worst trading session in almost three weeks after Bloomberg revealed the company’s plans to slow hiring and spending to cope with a potential economic downturn. Yesterday, Meta (previously Facebook) was in the news, with its CEO Mark Zuckerberg stating quite ruthlessly that the company will simply tell all of its employees that it 'does not need' to simply go home.

There are now some commentators who consider that the big tech stocks listed on New York's prominent exchanges have even further to fall.

Apple stock has decreased in value by a remarkable 17% during the course of 2022, and other large software giants and internet stalwarts such as Microsoft and Google (Alphabet) having fallen in value over a sustained period of time.

A point of interest with this otherwise gloomy outlook is that the declining nature of Apple stock is having a bearing on the total value of all big tech stocks.

The spread between the prospective earnings multiples of the S&P 500 Information Technology Sector and the benchmark S&P 500 started this year at the highest it had been since 2004, which is encouraging, and shows that perhaps a few of the giants which have been struggling to keep the value of their shares up have affected the entire outlook for big tech when in reality there are firms doing well.

Overall, however, the differential between the downturn in big tech stock values in New York and other stocks on prominent exchanges elsewhere is interesting.

London's FTSE 100, largely consisting of less tech-focused stocks and more on long-established, age-old blue chip companies in mining, manufacturing, pharmaceuticals, finance, consumer retail and engineering industries, has been stable despite the United Kingdom's economic situation having reached a milestone inflation level which is now at its highest in 40 years.

It is apparent that many investors in the United Kingdom are looking for inflation-busting opportunities, and are taking a cautious approach, especially given that many London listed stocks are valued in Pounds and Pence, and at a time during which the governmental changes are creating uncertainty.

BTCUSD: Triple Bottom Pattern Above $19640

Bitcoin was unable to sustain its bearish momentum and after touching a low of 18991 on 13th July started to correct upwards breaching the $22000 handle on 18th July.

We can see a continued appreciation in the price of bitcoin as global investor sentiments have improved leading to buying action seen in the markets at levels above $19000.

The price of bitcoin is poised to clear the resistance zone located at $23000 after which we will see a continuous upsurge in the levels of BTCUSD.

We can clearly see a triple-bottom pattern above the $19640 handle which is a bullish reversal pattern because it signifies the end of a downtrend and a shift towards an uptrend.

Bitcoin touched an intraday high of 22937 in the Asian trading session and an intraday low of 21588 in the European trading session today.

Both the STOCH and Williams percent range are indicating overbought levels which means that in the immediate short term, a decline in the prices is expected.

The relative strength index is at 50 indicating a neutral demand for bitcoin at the current market levels.

Bitcoin is now moving above its 100 hourly simple moving average and 200 hourly simple moving averages.

Some of the major technical indicators are giving a buy signal, which means that in the immediate short term, we are expecting targets of 22000 and 23000.

The average true range is indicating less market volatility with a bullish momentum.


  • Bitcoin: bullish reversal seen above $19640
  • The Williams percent range is indicating an overbought level
  • The price is now trading just above its pivot level of $21805
  • Most of the moving averages are giving a buy market signal


Bitcoin: Bullish Reversal Seen Above $19640
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

The price of Bitcoin continues to appreciate above the $21000 handle, and we are now testing the important resistance level of $23000 in the European trading session.

The global sentiments continue to improve leading to broad-based buying by the medium-term investors.

We can see the formation of a rising trend channel and are facing the immediate targets of $22000 and $22700.

Bitcoin’s bearish bias was invalidated above $19000, and we can see a correction wave that is stronger than the previous one.

We can see the formation of a bullish ABCD pattern in the hourly time frame which indicates that we are heading towards the $25000 level.

The immediate short-term outlook for bitcoin is bullish; the medium-term outlook has turned neutral; and the long-term outlook remains neutral under present market conditions.

Bitcoin’s support zone is located at $20500, and the prices continue to remain above this level for the continuation of the bullish phase of the markets.

The price of BTCUSD is now facing its classic resistance level of 21868 and Fibonacci resistance level of 21963 after which the path towards 22000 will get cleared.

In the last 24hrs, BTCUSD has declined by 1.73% by 385$ and has a 24hr trading volume of USD 45.154 billion. We can see an increase of 39.50% in the trading volume as compared to yesterday, which is due to the buying seen by the medium-term investors.

The Week Ahead

The price of bitcoin is moving in a bullish momentum, and the immediate targets are $22500 and $23500.

The daily RSI is printing at 53 which means that the medium range demand continues to remain neutral.

We can see the continuation of the recovery mode in bitcoin with the prices touching the $23000 and $24000 levels next week.

British Pound begins to rise, but still faces challenges
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

The British Pound has been subjected to an onslaught of challenges recently.

These challenges have not been short term ones, either.

Over the past two years, there have been factors which have had an overreaching effect on the economic circumstances of most Western nations, including government-enforced lockdowns, which were the first in a series of policies which have had a domino effect.

In the United Kingdom, adherence to lockdowns was enforced in a different way to those in many other nations. Instead of policing the movements of people, the British government introduced a furlough scheme which effectively paid people to stay at home.

This has cost the country's coffers a fortune, and along with a £400 billion borrowing program led by Chancellor of the Exchequer (finance minister) Rishi Sunak, it all has to be paid back by a nation whose productivity was adversely affected for over two years.

The inflation and cost of living crisis that ensued has added further woes to the economic situation and the Pound has languished.

Now, however, it has begun to rise again as the forecast for the Consumer Price Index (CPI) will be released today and it is anticipated to be an almost unbelievable 9.1% year-on-year according to a Bloomberg survey. The Bank of England will meet 4th August to decide on how much to hike rates.

This is certainly not good reading for conservative investors, and really shows the extent of the inflation problem.

The anomaly is the US Dollar's strength. The US Dollar remains very strong against all majors, the British Pound being no exception, especially given that the United States is in equally dire straits in terms of inflation which is at a 40 year high.

Productivity in the United States is quite good, however, whereas in the United Kingdom there are still many large organizations which are still not operating at anything like full capacity.

Perhaps another important factor to consider is that the British Prime Minister resigned amid a myriad of chaotic circumstances at the time when the economy is teetering, with many fingers aiming the blame directly at the incumbent government for the state of the nation's finances.

Therefore, the GBP/USD remains in a downtrend like many other markets as overall US Dollar strength continues.

Gold begins to move upwards, but 1-year low still lingering
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Gold has been struggling to maintain the values that it reached during the spring of 2022 over recent months, and by the middle of July it had reached a 1-year low.

Whereas the prices in May had reached $1,980 per ounce, Gold had dropped to $1,700 by July 14.

Today, however, a slight upturn in the value of Gold has begun to make itself evident, and this morning during the Asian trading session, Gold had risen to $1,720 per ounce.

Admittedly, this is still a low value compared to any time during the past twelve months, but the factors which are now beginning to influence the value of gold away from its two-month long decline to the low value reached at the end of last week.

This morning, Gold rose to $1,717 per ounce, which some are attributing to a weakness in the US Dollar. Ordinarily commodities and stores of value such as Gold would not be so influenced by the currency market, but the US Dollar's value is intrinsic to the value of Gold because Gold is valued in US Dollars and bought and settled in US Dollars.

Another US Dollar-related factor which could be contributing to the slight rise in the value of Gold is that the US Federal Reserve Bank intervened to cool down market expectations of a 1.0% rate hike on Friday, which in turn helped the Gold Price to defend the yearly low that it reached on Thursday.

Talk of interest rate increases in the United States are enough to blunt enthusiasm, especially when considering that there have already been a few this year, and that The Index of Consumer Expectations declined to its lowest level since May 1980 at 47.3. These very low figures were released alongside a 0.20% contraction by the US Industrial Production for June to favor Gold buyers or traders of the US Dollar against Gold.

There are talks of a 1% interest rate rise at the next Federal Reserve meeting, and that is a clear indicator that inflation is still a major concern for policymakers in the United States, just as it is in Europe.

The difference is that commodity prices are affected by these economic decisions which involve the US Dollar.
