FED EXPECTEDLY APPROVES 0.25% RATE HIKE, PLANS 7 MORE HIKES IN 2022

The operation had been planned before the war. By the end of 2023, the Fed rate may rise to 2.8%.

After the news report was released, Powell held a press conference. The Fed head radiated optimism, drawing attention to the strong labor market. Judging by the growth of stock prices, investors trusted the Fed's confidence and ability to control the situation.

Historically, every monetary tightening cycle leading to yield curve inversions has driven the US into a recession in 1-3 years.

Bank of America analysts say that the Fed is ready to sacrifice the growth of the stock market to stop inflation.

Lest we forget about the important factor of geopolitics. The US has been distancing itself from hostilities in Ukraine. Part of the European capital may flow into the shares of American companies.

On the chart, we can observe some hints at strength. Note that the S&P 500 did not fall to the lower border of the AB channel (circled). This means that the downstream channel is losing its relevance. A bullish triple bottom pattern is forming on the chart along with the support level of $4,150, and in case of a breakdown of the B resistance line (which may happen in the coming sessions), we may see a rally.

Be would recommend remaining watchful while waiting for the reports on the British pound and the euro.

FACEBOOK AND INSTAGRAM BANNED IN RUSSIA

A court in Moscow has banned Facebook and Instagram under the “extremism" law.

The decision is subject to immediate execution, so Roskomnadzor has already blocked Facebook and imposed a ban on Instagram, although social networks have partially been blocked before.

According to Russia's Prosecutor General's Office, Facebook and Instagram have:
  • ignored the demands to remove “fakes" about Russia's "special operation" in Ukraine
  • allowed publication of calls for unsanctioned rallies;
  • put both individuals and society as a whole in danger by allowing calls for murder.

The decision does not apply to WhatsApp messenger. There is no penalty prescribed for Russian citizens who will find a way to circumvent the ban.

If this development does harm the value of FB shares, it is unlikely to be critical. On the one hand, the ban may be temporary. On the other hand, FB shares are being supported by a multi-year uptrend line (1).

This may be a good time for a long-term investment. According to TipRanks, most analysts give FB stock a BUY recommendation with an average target price of around $325 (the shares closed yesterday on Nasdaq at 211.49).

To invest in FB, consider enlisting the services of a reliable broker like FXOpen. (https://www.fxopen.com/en/)

CAN QUANTUM COMPUTERS BECOME A DANGER TO THE CRYPTO WORLD?

There is an opinion among crypto investors that quantum computers with unprecedented computing power will be able to pick up access to wallets and bring down the entire cryptocurrency system in the future. How true is that?

Sankar Das Sarma, director of a research center at the University of Maryland, published an article in the MIT Tech Review, suggesting that, while the current state of the technology is an amazing scientific achievement, it is still too far from developing a quantum computer that would be able to cause any problems.

Although Sarma has not sounded the alarm, he noted that a real quantum computer will have applications unimaginable today. Similarly, no one could have predicted that the first transistor, made in 1947, would lead to the invention of laptops and smartphones.

If the threat from quantum computers becomes real, countermeasures will certainly be invented for it. Last month, JP Morgan conducted a study on a blockchain network with QKD key distribution that is resistant to potential quantum computing attacks. Previously, Xx labs launched a blockchain claiming it to be a quantum-resistant and privacy-focused blockchain ecosystem.

Therefore, there is no real threat, at least in the foreseeable future.

Meanwhile, the bitcoin rate is trying to fix above the level of 45.5k. Line B, parallel to line A, is now serving as resistance. Notice the increased volume in recent days (1) and the prominent upper candlestick wicks. If the volumes represent buying from those who decided to join the rally after breaking through the 45.5k level, then this buying did not bring results, which is a bearish sign. Therefore, a downside momentum testing the 45.5k level, or even further lowering the rate before attempting to break through line B, will not come as a surprise.

A short-term bearish scenario is not everyone's concern. Mike Alfred, the founder of BrightScope and Digital Assets Data, tweeted: “If bitcoin ends up worth $4 million, why worry when it once again tests the $44,000 level?”

To invest in cryptocurrency assets, consider enlisting the services of a reliable broker like FXOpen. (https://www.fxopen.com/en/)

Fed Plans To Accelerate Monetary Tightening. Is It a Good Time To Buy US Dollars?/b]
fed.jpg


The currency market moves mainly on the interest rate differential between various central banks around the world. The Federal Reserve of the United States is the most influential central bank, as it sets the rates over the world’s reserve currency.

In April, the Fed began a tightening cycle. It hiked the federal funds rate by 25bp in light of rising inflation and strong economic growth. Moreover, it warned that it is ready to hike even more aggressively should the data support it.

Following the rate hike, the Fed Chair Jerome Powell suggested that the Fed is ready to hike the federal funds rate by 50bp at their next meeting in May. In light of rising rates in the US as the economy grows and inflation runs hot, is it a good time to buy US dollars?

Fxopen-blog-1.jpg


US Dollar Trades With A Mixed Tone

Despite the Fed’s hawkishness, the US dollar trades with a mixed tone. On the one hand, it has gained against its European peers, such as the euro and the British pound, and against the Japanese yen. On the other hand, it trades with a weak tone against New Zealand and the Australian dollar.

Interestingly enough, the RBA and RBNZ have not raised the rates from their lower boundary. Yet, the two currencies down under are being bid against the dollar.

One explanation might be the inflation rate differential. Inflation in the US is at a four-decade high, outpacing the one in Australia and New Zealand.

As such, despite the Fed’s intentions to speed up the rate hikes, the rising inflation rate is eroding the dollar’s strength. In other words, inflation is rising much higher than the Fed is hiking the rates; thus, the US dollar remains weak against its Australian and New Zealand peers.

The conflict in Europe scared investors away from the common currency. While not declining as many have thought, the euro remains weak as investors keep selling any rally.

All in all, the US dollar remains bid against the JPY and European currencies while offered against the Australian and New Zealand dollars. Traders will find out more details about the Fed’s plans on Wednesday when the previous meeting’s minutes are scheduled for release.

ETHUSD and LTCUSD Technical Analysis – 07th APR, 2022

ETHUSD: Double Bottom Pattern Above $3,100

Ethereum failed to continue its bullish momentum last week, and after touching a high of 3578 on April 4th, has started to decline.

Ethereum touched an intraday low of $3,143 in the Asian trading session, and an intraday high of $3,233 in the European trading session today.

We can clearly see a double bottom pattern above the $3,100 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 $3,223 and moving in a mildly bullish channel. The price of ETHUSD is now testing its classic resistance level of $3,235 and Fibonacci resistance level of $3,246, after which the path towards $3,400 will get cleared.

The relative strength index is at 44 indicating a WEAK demand for Ethereum and the move towards consolidation.

Both the StochRSI and the Williams percent range are indicating an overbought level which means that the price is due to decline further.

Most of the technical indicators are giving a STRONG BUY market signal.

Some of the moving averages are giving a BUY signal, and we are now looking at the levels of $3,400 to $3,550 in the short-term range.

ETH is now trading below both the 100 hourly and 200 hourly simple moving averages.
  • A bullish reversal seen in Ether above the $3,100 mark
  • The short-term range appears to be mildly BULLISH
  • The daily RSI is near 50 at 53, indicating a NEUTRAL market
  • The average true range is indicating LESSER market volatility
Ether: Bullish Reversal Seen Above $3,100

fxopen-blog.png


ETHUSD is now moving into a mildly bullish channel with the price trading above the $3,200 handle in the European trading session today.

We saw last week that the bullish move was invalidated above the $3,500 handle, and this week, we are looking at the level of $3,400. If ETH manages to cross and remain above these levels, then we can see $3,500 and $3,600 next week.

Ethereum is now slowly recovering against the US dollar, and we can see the formation of an ascending contraction triangle which means that the prices are due to break out upwards.

ETHUSD is now facing its immediate resistance levels of $3,337 and $3,417, after which we will see a linear progression towards $3,600.

The key support levels to watch are $3,175 and $3,153, and the prices of ETHUSD need to remain above these levels for the bullish trend to continue.

ETH has lost -4.00% with a price change of -133.99$ in the past 24hrs, and has a trading volume of 22.874 billion USD.

We can see a 8.29% decrease in the total trading volume in the last 24 hrs, which appears to be normal.

The Week Ahead

Last week, we saw Ethereum decline from its highs of $3,579 to the low of $3,143, but now we can see that the prices have entered into a consolidation phase above $3,200.

If the price of ETHUSD remains above $3,200, we may see a linear progression towards the level of $3,400 and $3,500 this week.

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

This week, Ether is expected to move in a range between $3,200 and $3,400, and next week, Ether is expected to enter into a consolidation phase above the level of $3,400.

On-Chain Metrics

We can see that the number of active Ethereum addresses are increasing, and it also points to an increase in the price of ETH next week.

The simple moving average (14-day) of the active receiving addresses also suggests that more buyers are now coming back into the markets, which has led to an increase in the number of Ethereum transactions

Technical Indicators:

The Stoch (9,6): at 74.29 indicating a BUY

The average directional Change (14-day): at 54.71 indicating a BUY

fxopen-blog-1.jpg


BTCUSD: Double Bottom Pattern Above $39,000

Bitcoin was unable to continue its last week’s bullish momentum and started to decline after touching a high of $47,184 on April 5th.

Bitcoin broke the $40,000 support and touched a low of $36,210 in today’s Asian trading session.

The selloff continues across the crypto markets, and the global investor sentiments are low due to the continuation of the Russia-Ukraine war and its emerging impacts on the prices of energy and stock markets.

After falling below the $40,000 handle, bitcoin found support and has entered a mildly bullish channel in today’s European trading session.

We can clearly see a double bottom pattern above the $39,000 handle which is a bullish reversal pattern because it signifies the end of a downtrend and a shift towards an uptrend.

The Stoch and the Williams percent range are indicating an overbought level which means that in the immediate short term, a decline in the prices is expected.

The relative strength index is at 43 indicating a WEAK demand for bitcoin at the current market levels.

Bitcoin is now moving below its 100 hourly simple moving average and its 200 hourly exponential moving average.

Most of the major technical indicators are giving a BUY signal, which means that in the immediate short term, we are expecting targets of $41,000 and $43,000.

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

  • Bullish reversal seen in bitcoin above $39,000
  • The StochRSI is indicating an OVERSOLD level
  • The price is now trading just above its pivot level of $40,236
  • Some of the moving averages are giving a BUY market signal

Bitcoin: Bullish Reversal Seen Above $39,000


Bitcoin continues to move in a mildly bullish momentum with an upwards projection towards the level of $41,000 in the European trading session today.

In the immediate term, we are expecting a continuation of this bullish trend with the price of bitcoin ranging between the levels of $42,000 and $44,000 as it has entered into a consolidation phase now.

The drop in the level of BTCUSD that we saw last week was due to the profit-taking by the short-term investors.

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

The price of BTCUSD is now facing its classic resistance level of $40,336 and Fibonacci resistance level of $40,454, after which the path towards $41,000 will get cleared.

We can see that the daily RSI is below 50 printing at 38 which indicates that in the medium-term prices are expected to decline further.

In the last 24hrs, BTCUSD has gone down by 3.17% with a price change of -$1319, and has a 24hr trading volume of USD 36.665 billion. We can see an Increase of 60.52% in the trading volume as compared to yesterday, which is due to the selling by the long-term Investors.

The Week Ahead

The price of bitcoin is now moving in a consolidation phase above the level of $40,000. We can see some range-bounded movements between $41,000 and $43,000.

If the prices of bitcoin continue to remain above the important psychological support level of $40,000, next week, we may see some correction in the midrange upwards towards the $42,000 handle.

In the immediate short term, bitcoin’s mildly bullish momentum is expected to continue pushing to above the $41,000 handle this week.

The price of BTCUSD will need to remain above the important support level of $40,000 this week.

The weekly outlook is projected at $42,000 with a consolidation zone of $41,500.

BTC Market Cap

Due to the weak global investor sentiments coupled with the ongoing Russia-Ukraine war and the rising inflation, the BTC market cap has fallen down below $800 billion.

The present total market capitalization of bitcoin stands at $764 billion.


Technical Indicators:

The average directional change (14-day): at 44.90 indicating a BUY
