LTC and EOS – The start of a another recovery seen most likely

ltc-1.jpg

LTC/USD

The price of Litecoin has been on the rise since Tuesday when it came down to $104.9 at its lowest point. From there we have seen an increase of 27% as it reached $133.3 at its highest point today. Currently, it is trading slightly lower but is still in an upward trajectory.

ltcusd-1h-3.png

On the hourly chart, we can see that the price fell into a lower low compared to the May 23rd one and spiked to the upside, reaching the broken downtrend support which is being now tested for resistance. If the price finds resistance here another move to the downside would be expected, but only as a pullback before further upside continuation. This is so because on the 22nd we have most likely seen the end of the corrective five-wave move from the 27th of May so now a move to the upside like it developed from the 23rd till the 27th would be expected.

The price could now increase as much as 35% but it would be expected to go lower than on the 27th when it came up to $209. This is because the price made a lower low which is why a lower high would be more likely. Another possibility could be that we have seen the start of a completely new impulse wave to the upside and that the 22nd of June’s low was the completion of the higher degree down move. But this is going to be validated from the type of descending move we see after this expected rise.

Financial Markets Turn Their Attention to Jobs Data

hiring.jpg

Financial markets reversed their initial reaction after the latest FOMC Statement and press conference. In the two days that followed the June Fed meeting, the US dollar gained ground significantly against its peers in the developed world.

As such, the EURUSD fell from above 1.22 to 1.1850, the AUDUSD dropped a couple of hundred of pips, while the GBPUSD was strongly rejected at the 1.42. Also, stocks dropped in the United States and triggered a sharp decline in other equity markets too.

But it all lasted only two days. The week that just ended has seen the market participants changing their minds. Stocks reversed sharply, the US dollar weakness resumed, and overall risk-on outperformed.

What changed in the meantime? The answer comes from the Fed. Last Tuesday, Fed’s Chair Jerome Powell testified in front of the House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Crisis, and he downplayed the hawkish statement. Moreover, Fed members held speeches the entire week, reassuring markets that the accommodative measures will remain in place for quite some time despite the hawkish dot plot.

Furthermore, the Fed still sees inflation as transitory. Food and energy prices are expected to come down past 2021, even though right now inflation exceeds the Fed’s target.

1.jpg

Focus Turns to Job Creation

Now that the inflation has reached the Fed’s target, the only chance the US dollar bulls have is for the job market to show significant improvements. While the strong economic growth and improvements in the labor market should bode well for the currency and the stock market indices, further developments in the labor market will bring the Fed closer to its job creation mandate.

Therefore, the Fed’s hawkish message will have greater credibility if the US economy is able to create more jobs. We will find out as soon as next week the current state of the labor market as the Non-Farm Payrolls report for the month of May is due.

Crude Oil Price Diverges from US Dollar Strength

oil.jpg

One of the most interesting divergences in financial markets formed recently. The price of oil remains stubbornly elevated, closing the previous week above $75 per one barrel, despite ongoing dollar strength.

Since April 2020, the price of oil has come a long way. It dipped below the zero level for the first time ever, as the futures market settled close to -$40 twelve months ago. But from that moment on, it ripped higher, recovering all the pandemic losses and some more.

Because oil remains a big chunk of energy consumption in the United States and the rest of the world, higher oil prices fuel higher inflation. Higher inflation, on the other hand, pressures central banks to act and raise the interest rates, as most of them have a price stability mandate given by an inflation-targeting framework.

energy-consumption-in-us-1776-2020.jpg

Commodities vs. Interest Rates

A classic correlation in financial markets tells us that commodities tend to underperform when interest rates are rising. It is not the case this time.

While the interest rates are not off their lows, the Federal Reserve of the United States started to talk hawkish. At its last meeting, the Fed signaled more rate hikes in the near future than the market expected, triggering a move higher in the US dollar.

As such, the EURUSD pair fell from above 1.22 to 1.18, the GBPUSD from 1.42 to 1.38, and the AUDUSD from 0.78 to below 0.75. But the strength in the US dollar did not bring a correction in the price of oil. Just the opposite.

A couple of things may help explain the divergence. On the one hand, the recent Iranian presidential elections have postponed the likelihood for Iranian oil to hit the market anytime soon. On the other hand, the OPEC+ recent meetings failed to commit new supplies for the second half of the year, despite the fact that demand is forecast to rise by 3 million barrels/day in the second half of the year.

Hence, the imbalances in supply and demand point to further upside in the price of oil, despite the Fed’s hawkishness. Many voices in the market suggest that the Fed will signal the tapering of its asset purchases at the upcoming Jackson Hole Symposium in August.

Therefore, until August, the US dollar’s strength will likely persist in expectations of the Fed’s message. Yet, as long as it remains above $70, the price of oil remains bid too, threatening with a move above $80 and beyond.

BTC and XRP – Breakout from the range will dictate the next trend

btc.jpg

BTC/USD

The price of Bitcoin has been on the rise since the 26th of Jun and made it back to the $36,000 area on the 29th. From there we have seen a descending move with the price moving sideways after. Currently, it is being traded at $$33,893 and made a lower high today compared to yesterday’s one and is moving to the downside.

btcusd-1h.png

Looking at the hourly chart, you can see that a triangle is being formed which could be the 2nd sub-wave of the higher degree descending move. Considering that the prior move ended most likely as the ABC correction to the upside with the price falling back inside the territory of the lower range of the 1st wave from the 22nd. this is currently more likely. In this case, the price is to form the 3rd wave from the descending move that started on the 16th of Jun when another three-wave ABC to the upside completed.

If this is true, then we will see a breakout to the downside below the $31,000 mark, which served as a strong horizontal support level. However, this sideways movement that formed a triangle could be a consolidation range before another move to the upside that is set to break the $36,183 horizontal resistance. This is why the validation will come as a breakout direction from the mentioned triangle and will dictate the next dominant trend.

LTC and EOS – Further lows expected

ltc-1.jpg

LTC/USD

The price of Litecoin reached $148 on the 4th of July which was the same level as on the prior high. From there we have seen the start of a descending move and is currently being traded at $130 and is still in a downward trajectory.

ltcusd-1h.png

On the hourly chart, you can see that the price broke out from the ascending support level from the 22nd of June. This is the first signal that the prior recovery ended and now we have seen the start of a descending move of the same degree as the one that lasted from the 22nd of June till the 4th of July.

July 4th high came up to the descending trendline which is the upper level of the descending triangle which formed from the 23rd of May. As the price found resistance again this validated that the previous recovery was corrective in nature in conjunction with the wave structure. This is why it is counted as the 4th corrective wave with now most likely the 5th one to the downside developing.

If this is true then we are to see a lower low compared to the one on the 22nd of June when the price of Litecoin fell to $105 area. If the descending triangle is still in play another third interaction with its support level could be seen which brings the price target to $90.

Bitcoin Gives Back Its 2021 Gains – What Next?
btc.jpg

Bitcoin started the year around $30,000, and now the level acts as support. The euphoria surrounding the cryptocurrency market ended with a 50% decline in the price of Bitcoin and, in some cases, with more.

In the first quarter of the year, Tesla announced that it invested $1.5 billion into Bitcoin. Moreover, it said that it would accept payments for its vehicles in Bitcoin.

The announcement led to massive buying into the crypto space as numerous altcoins entered the bullish territory. As such, Bitcoin rose from $30,000 to over $60,000.

Investors viewed Tesla’s announcement as a sign of further adoption of the cryptocurrencies, thus the bullish run. However, a couple of months later, Tesla announced it had sold some of its Bitcoin holdings and booked a profit just before the end of the first quarter. In fact, the company made a profit on the quarter only from selling carbon credits and some of its Bitcoin holding.

Shortly after the second quarter started, Tesla, through the voice of its CEO, Elon Musk, expressed its concerns about the energy use of mining Bitcoin. As such, it stopped accepting Bitcoin as payment for Tesla cars, but it is unclear if the company sold any of its remaining Bitcoin.
1.jpg

Tesla Q2 Earnings – Key for Future Price Action in Bitcoin

It is unclear if Tesla sold any of its remaining Bitcoin or not, but investors will find out pretty soon. The Q2 2021 earnings season starts now, and investors will look for clues about the company’s crypt holding. If Tesla sold more of its Bitcoin at the higher levels, the bias is that the market will test below $30,000.

From a technical perspective, the market seems to have formed a head and shoulders pattern. Even the fact that the global Bitcoin mining energy use is comparatively negligible does not matter anymore, as the market is unable to bounce.

Moreover, further investments from companies such as MicroStrategy, which announced over $1.5 billion invested in Bitcoin in the second quarter alone, were not enough to lift the price of Bitcoin.

To sum up, if there is one critical event for Bitcoin in the weeks ahead, it is the Tesla Q2 2021 earnings. Any changes in the company’s crypto portfolio may move the market.

EUR/USD Remains At Risk, USD/CHF Eyes Larger Increase

euro-3.jpg

EUR/USD declined heavily below 1.1900 and it tested 1.1770. USD/CHF is rising and it could gain momentum if it manages to clear the 0.9200 resistance.

Important Takeaways for EUR/USD and USD/CHF

  • The Euro started a fresh decline from well above the 1.1900 zone against the US Dollar.
  • There was a break below a major contracting triangle with support near 1.1855 on the hourly chart of EUR/USD.
  • USD/CHF started a fresh increase after it found support near 0.9123.
  • There was a break above a key bearish trend line with resistance near 0.9168 on the hourly chart.

EUR/USD Technical Analysis

The Euro struggled to gain pace above the 1.1900 level and it started a major decline against the US Dollar. As a result, the EUR/USD pair broke the 1.1850 support zone to move into a bearish zone.

The pair even declined below the 1.1820 support zone and settled below the 50 hourly simple moving average. There was also a break below a major contracting triangle with support near 1.1855 on the hourly chart of EUR/USD.

eurusd-chart-1.png

A low was formed near 1.1772 on FXOpen and the pair is now consolidating losses. An immediate resistance on the upside is near the 1.1795 level.

It is near the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent drop from the 1.1875 high to 1.1772 low. If there is an upside break above the 1.1800 resistance zone, the price could recover steadily towards the 1.1825 resistance zone.

The 50% Fib retracement level of the recent drop from the 1.1875 high to 1.1772 low is also near 1.1825. Any more gains might call for a test of 1.1850.

On the downside, there is a major support forming near the 1.1770 zone. A downside break below the 1.1770 support could start another decline. The next major support could be near the 1.1710 level.

Crypto investors are looking for reasons to be optimistic

cryptos.jpg

The market has entered a consolidation zone after the anomalous activity of May 19, with fluctuations framed by a narrowing triangle formation. Currently, no significant news reports are affecting the market, and the volumes are fading. This situation is reminiscent of the calm before the storm. What will the storm be like and when will it happen?

Optimists are looking for arguments that would signify a resuming growth. Analysts point to the outflow of bitcoins from cryptocurrency exchanges (see fig. 2), as evidenced by data (see fig. 1) collected by the Glassnode agency. Blue arrows on the chart indicate that previous outflows occurred against the backdrop of rising quotes. Therefore, the current outflow, according to analysts, could be a bullish harbinger.

btcusd.png

But digging deeper, we will find out that this was not always the case. A similar outflow occurred during the lull in the first half of November 2018. And in the second half, a bearish storm occurred, and BTCUSD collapsed from 6400 to 3200.

Volume analysis does give cause for concern. On July 11, there was a growth attempt (see fig. 3), but the volumes were low, which indicates a possible shortage of buyers. The next day, July 12, confirms the weakness of demand, as the price decreased on growing volumes, which can be interpreted as active selling pressure. It seems that negative sentiment prevails in the market, as participants are actively selling the coin instead of buying. If so, then the price of 33,500 is too high for BTC.

In such conditions, the fate of a psychological support level of 30k causes more and more concerns.

LTC and EOS – Upside expected but could be correctional

ltc-1.jpg

LTC/USD

The price of Litecoin was on the rise from yesterday and came up by 6% from its low of  $124.3 to $131.8 at its highest point today. We have seen a minor pullback to $127.6 and currently it started moving to the upside again.

ltcusd-1h-1.png

On the hourly chart, you can see that yesterday’s low was the third lower low from the 29th of Jun. This could have marked the completion of the corrective ABC structure after a five-wave impulse from the 22nd of Jun. If this is true then the price is now set to continue moving to the upside in an impulsive manner.

Another possibility could be that the price made a three-wave increase from the 22nd till the 29th in which case we have seen a corrective ABCDE after, but in both cases, the price would be expected to continue moving higher. Either as the continuation of the corrective WXY of the higher degree in a negative scenario or the 3rd wave from the five-wave impulse in a positive one.

The pullback seen from yesterday is most likely the 2nd sub-wave of starting move to the upside so shortly a breakout would be expected from the descending resistance level and a higher high compared to yesterday’s one. Moving forward we are going to see from the price action which scenario is going to get validated.

Rising US Inflation Supports the Bullish Case for Gold

gold.jpg

Last week, two events dominated the price action in financial markets – the US inflation and Fed Chair Powell’s semiannual testimony. Both brought a new perspective to market participants, but summer trading conditions eventually prevailed.

Namely, despite the rising inflation environment and the market-moving statements from the Fed Chair, the market did not move much. It is typical for the market to consolidate during the summer months, and so July and August are known as months with declining volatility.

us-10-year-treasury-yields.jpg

Rising Inflation – Bullish for Gold and Equities

The US inflation data for the month of June showed inflation surging. It reached 5.4% YoY, much higher than expectations. In fact, inflation in the United States did not reach such levels for at least three decades.

Traders should remember that last year, in August, the Fed shifted its price stability mandate. It moved from targeting 2% to averaging 2% inflation. Therefore, higher inflation above 2% is not quite a concern for the Fed because we do not know what it is the period used for averaging.

In other words, if the Fed considers the last 12 months or more, then inflation is likely to be below the 2% AIT (Average Inflation Targeting) target. Because of that, the semiannual testimony that the Fed Chair held last week was critical for understanding how the Fed views inflation.

Fed Powell admitted that the central bank is surprised by how hot inflation is running, but he reiterated the fact that the Fed views it as transitory. We will find out further down the road if that is true or not.

In the meantime, with inflation at 5.4% and the US 10-Year Treasury yield at 1.3%, we talk about a negative 4.1% real yields. Therefore, investors are forced to look for alternatives.

One is gold. Commodities have typically served against higher inflation and this time should be no different. The price of gold, therefore, traded with a bid tone last week, rising from below $1,800 at the time inflation data was released, to over $1,830 before giving back some gains.

Another is the stock market. The US equities have outperformed their peers and keep trading close to their highs. The earnings season started strong, with financial services corporations posting strong earnings for the second quarter. If the trend continues, funds will keep pouring into the stock market.

All in all, rising inflation bodes well for gold and equities. The next thing to monitor is the tapering of the asset purchases from the Fed. It may be announced as soon as the Jackson Hole Symposium in August, if inflation keeps rising.

BTC and XRP – Once again moving to the downside

btc.jpg

BTC/USD

The price of Bitcoin has been falling downwards and made a decrease of 9.14% from Sunday’s high of $32,289 to its lowest point today at $29,336. It has broken the significant horizontal support zone and is currently interacting with the descending support level from the channel in which it was since the ending days of May.

btcusd-1h-1.png

On the hourly chart, you can see that this is another downfall back to its lows of the 26th of June and is eyeing out the one on the 22nd. This downward trajectory is the continuation of the descending triangle from the start of July which was broken on the downside today. This area is still considered as support so we might see a bounce for another minor recovery but the picture still looks bearish with the price most likely headed further down in the upcoming period.

If this last descending support breaks the price will move further down and with no significant support close it could continue moving to the $18,000 zone where the next one is. This would be expected in either way but potentially these low levels would be viewed as a good buying opportunity for some, which can lead to a minor recovery first.

LTC and EOS – Higher high expected before the completion of this rise

ltc.jpg

LTC/USD

The price of Litecoin has been on the rise from Tuesday’s low of $104 and made an increase of 13.86% as it came up to $118.8 today. Since then we have seen some sideways movement but the price is in an upward trajectory overall.

ltcusd-1h-2.png

Looking at the hourly chart, you can see that this increase is counted as the starting impulse from the new count which is why now a higher high would be expected. The sideways movement we’ve seen is in that case the 4th wave and is likely going to end as a flat correction, establishing support above the 0.786 Fib level.

If this is true, then the price is now set to continue moving to the upside for a higher high which would be the end of this first impulsive move after which a retracement would be expected of the same degree. But the price would then be expected to continue moving upward for at least one more wave if this is an ABC to the upside. If this is the 1st sub-wave of the higher degree impulsive move then we are to see even higher levels of the price of Litecoin in the upcoming period, potentially above the $150.
