Crude oil has been consolidating in a tight range ever since our previous analysis of the commodity's price action. This is partly due to the gradually increasing aggregate demand worldwide, as governments ease their restrictions, and partly due to the recovering industrial activity.
Moreover, the supply glut from the beginning of the coronavirus crisis, which inspired the crash in the energy market [...]
While the speculative nature of the stock market rally is now being questioned due to its apparent disregard for underlying economic factors, the impact of the recovery process in the energy market is becoming increasingly more pronounced. The price of crude oil, in particular, has registered a remarkable, bullish run since late-April, when it plummeted below $0 per barrel for the first time on record.
The energy market appears to have finally stabilised following the historic collapse that took place just a little over a month ago. The price of crude oil tumbled to negative rates in late-April because of several contributing factors. At that time, the disagreements between the member-states of OPEC+ concerning production output coupled with the height of the coronavirus crisis threw the energy market into disarray. [...]
The WTI tumbled to nearly -$40 per barrel when the May futures contracts expired in late April, but has subsequently managed to bounce back to around $25 per barrel. Following this momentary 'stabilisation', the price of crude has started to consolidate within the boundaries of a narrow range, as investors wait to see whether global demand would pick up now that more and more states are working towards gradually reopening their economies. [...]
The price action of Ethereum is currently attempting to strengthen above the psychologically significant threshold at 2500.00, in what can be considered as an early bullish signal. The cryptocurrency collapsed last week following the sudden Russian invasion of Ukraine, as traders and investors dumped high-risk assets in the search for lower-risk securities. Despite these tribulations, however, Ethereum was [...]
Crude oil, being the energy market benchmark, is being affected quite substantially by the ongoing tensions between Russia and Ukraine. The prospect of war could disrupt the global supply chains of crude oil as Russia is one of the biggest exporters of the commodity, as well as the most significant member of OPEC+, which is what is prompting the heightened demand for the commodity. [...]
As was forecasted by our last analysis of gold, the price action reached the previous swing peak at 1915.00. This is where a major bearish reversal is likely to take place, given the confluence of mounting bearish signals. That is why the underlying setup seems favourable to bears looking to implement contrarian trading strategies. Bulls, in contrast, could potentially seek to enter long on the next dip as [...]
The price action of Bitcoin is once again tanking as bearish bias is ramping up. This is being prompted by several contributing factors, the main one amongst which is increasing overall uncertainty. Markets are shuddering from the looming prospects of a Russian invasion of Ukraine, which stymies investors ' demand for higher-risk assets. [...]
The price action of the EURUSD is currently consolidating near the dip of the previous downtrend as bullish pressure is once again accumulating. This may represent a very early stage in the development of a new uptrend, which may allow bulls the opportunity to utilise contrarian trading strategies on the expectations for such a trend reversal. [...]
The price action of the Nasdaq composite bounced back up from a recent dip, giving investors a glimmer of hope that the correction may finally be over. While this pullback does not necessarily signify a complete bullish reversal, the underlying setup may be favourable for the implementation of trend-continuation strategies by bulls seeking to join the market before the price action re-enters into uncharted [...]
The price action of one of the most popular cryptocurrencies in the world continues to behave exactly as per the expectations of the Elliott Wave theory, twisting and turning in a manner that is demonstrative of its fractality and scalability. What that means is that each subsequent wave represents a proportionate leg - whether impulse or retracement - of a broader structure, transcending across multiple [...]
The price of the commodity broke out above $90 per barrel last week, which represents the last major threshold before the psychological barrier at $100. This poses the question of whether soaring inflation and the tumultuous geopolitical landscape worldwide would drive the price higher, or whether it is time for a long-overdue correction? [...]
The price action of gold looks poised to climb higher in the near term after the commodity was able to recover from last week's upsurge in adverse volatility, which was prompted by the top-tier economic releases towards the end of the week. Therefore, bulls have a chance to enter at a discount by implementing trend-continuation strategies.
The price action attempted to break lower following the publication [...]
The price action of Bitcoin looks poised to continue sinking lower in the coming weeks as the underlying bearish pressure keeps on mounting. This is exemplified by the recent upsurge in selling volume, which led to the completion of the bullish pullback. That is why bears could seek to implement trend-continuation trading strategies on the current set-up. [...]
Following the latest economic developments globally, significant bearish sentiment is currently being observed on the EURUSD pair. This drastic change in the underlying supply and demand equilibrium is likely to drive the price action even lower in the foreseeable future.
Most importantly, FED's recent hint at a very probable rate hike as early as March strengthened the dollar. This decision was motivated [...]
The price action of the second most popular cryptocurrency in the world is currently behaving as per the expectations of the Elliott Wave Cycle Theory, amidst the general selloff in the market. This behaviour elucidates the possibility for the implementation of trend-continuation trading strategies. Namely, bulls and bears alike may try to pick tops and bottoms as the Elliott cycle continues to evolve. [...]
The price action of crude oil is long overdue for a bearish correction, though geopolitical tensions are so far preventing it from happening. The escalating tensions near the Donbas border-region of Ukraine are high as Russia keeps on increasing its military presence on its own side of the border. The global energy market has thus been gripped for quite a while by the prospect of a Russian invasion. [...]
Gold's price action has been consolidating in a broad range for over half a year now, which is a confirmation of the very strong range-trading conditions that prevail at present. Under those conditions, bulls and bears may implement the highly effective strategy of picking the underlying range's tops and bottoms. And given that the price action is currently drawing near one of the range's extremes, bears may [...]
The most popular cryptocurrency in the world has been massively undervalued since late 2021 owing to a number of contributing factors. But upon closer examination, the price action appears to be establishing a massive Head and Shoulders pattern which, if realised, would entail the development of an even bigger downtrend in the long run. Nevertheless, this may also entail bulls with an opportunity to go long [...]
Following a prolonged consolidation within the boundaries of a narrow range, the price action of the EURUSD is finally attempting a major breakout. If proved successful, this could entail the beginning of a new massive uptrend.
Both currencies are affected by soaring inflation, with consumer prices in the U.S. topping a four-decade peak and headline inflation in the Eurozone reaching an all-time high. [...]
The rally of the Nasdaq reached a climax in late November, and ever since then, the price action of the index has been on the retreat. Currently, a minor bullish pullback appears to be developing, which would allow bears to utilise trend continuation trading strategies; chiefly, they would be able to sell the next peak in anticipation of continued price depreciation afterwards. [...]
The price of Ethereum plummeted sharply earlier today following a sweeping selloff in the crypto market. Over the last couple of days, Bitcoin , the benchmark cryptocurrency, fell by over 6 per cent.
There are multiple factors contributing to the selloff, with the most significant one being the temporary strengthening of the dollar. The greenback is currently advancing ahead of the release of the December [...]
Earlier today, the price of the commodity rallied on the latest tribulations in the global geopolitical sphere. The escalation of tensions in Kazakhstan unnerved markets, which were already worried by the prospects of a potential Russian invasion of Ukraine. This caused an upsurge in demand for energy, thereby causing oil to rise.
Nevertheless, the price action is currently probing a major resistance level [...]
The price action of Bitcoin, similarly to other prominent assets, has been consolidating around the Holidays owing to diminished trading activity. The cryptocurrency fell from the November peak and is currently threading just below the psychologically significant threshold at $50000.00.
The majority of cryptocurrency enthusiasts expect the crypto flagship to resume appreciating shorty as trading activity [...]
