The relative strength index is at 39.90, indicating a very weak demand for Bitcoin and the continuation of the selling pressure in the markets.

Bitcoin is now moving below its 100-hour exponential moving average and below its 200-hour exponential moving average.

Most of the major technical indicators are giving a bearish signal, which means that in the immediate short term, we are expecting targets of $26,500 and $27,000.

The average true range indicates less market volatility with mild bearish momentum.

  • Bitcoin bearish reversal is seen below $29,829.
  • The RSI remains below 50, indicating a bearish market.

Ripple: News, Token Price Analysis
xrp.png


At the Fintech Summit in Dubai, Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse revealed the amount that Ripple has spent to defend itself in a legal dispute with the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). He said:

“With the SEC, [...] by the time all’s said and done, we will have spent $200 million defending ourselves against a lawsuit, which from its very beginning, people were like, well, this doesn’t make a lot of sense.”

According to Brad, attempts to regulate cryptocurrencies in the US have come to a standstill, and therefore Ripple is considering expanding in Dubai, where laws are loyal to cryptocurrencies.

On March 9, we assumed that the price of Ripple could show strong dynamics amid expectations of a resolution of the conflict with the SEC — and yes, on March 29, the price of the XRP token in USD set a maximum since the beginning of the year. However, the conflict remained unresolved, and the bitcoin market is showing signs of weakness around the psychological USD 30k mark.

Crude Oil Analysis: Crude Oil Running on Empty
xbrusd.png


The price movements affecting crude oil have been fascinating over the past year and a half.

During the period in which many Western governments imposed lockdowns on their population, oil was trading at relatively high prices because of logistical and supply chain difficulties created by enforced stay-at-home orders, whilst nations in Asia such as India, Thailand and Japan continued as normal and required as much of the thick black stuff as possible to keep the wheels of industry turning.

Once the folly of lockdowns had tested the patience of most of the Western world and the powers that be could no longer carry them out, everything suddenly went back to normal, but supply chain disruptions continued as the 'work from home' phenomenon was difficult to curtail.

Prices remained relatively high. However, in the early months of 2022, many of the same countries that imposed lockdowns began to band together to enforce trade sanctions on the Russian Federation and its industry.

One of the largest industries in that particular country is oil extraction and refinement and the production of oil-based energy products.

Indeed, Russia is an OPEC+ nation and one of the largest producers and exporters of petrochemical products in the world.

These sanctions meant that Russian oil companies could not access their bank accounts in which settlement for oil supply is made; hence many European customers had to begin to settle the supply of oil by Russian companies by paying in Rubles into a bank account in Moscow or face having their supply curtailed.

This caused a rise in the price of crude oil and much of Europe to face an energy price crisis in which the cost of heating homes or running vehicles became astronomical.

Today, things are somewhat different. The price of crude oil is, compared to a year ago, on the floor.

In fact, it is very low compared to even one month ago, and over the five-day moving average until the end of trading on May 12, it is down considerably.

On May 2, we witnessed the lowest value of crude oil in over a year, and on May 12, the second lowest since May 2.

E-mini S&P 500: What the Decline in Volatility Means
img-009.png


The daily E-mini S&P 500 chart shows that the ATR indicator (14) is in the 2023 lows, dropping below the value of 40.

What can low values of the ATR indicator mean, indicating a decrease in volatility?

1→ Remember the proverb “Sell in May and Go Away”, implying that the stock market is usually inactive starting from May. Are traders already on vacation after the main part of the reporting season? It is unlikely that the solution to the problem with the US public debt lies ahead. Already today, Tuesday, President Biden held talks with representatives of Congress on this matter.

2→ An important trend is brewing in the E-mini S&P 500 futures market. Notice the low ATR values at the end of 2021, followed by a massive decline. The market periodically changes its state: from flat (when reversal strategies work) → to trend (when breakout strategies work) → and so on ad infinitum.

Strengthening US Dollar Creates Pressure on Bitcoin and Other Assets
btc.png


On Wednesday morning, the dollar index exceeded the high of April. The two following factors contributed to the strengthening of the USD:

→ Growing drama with public debt. Yesterday it became known that President Joe Biden and a senior Republican in Congress, Kevin McCarthy, are close to an agreement to raise the US national debt ceiling, but the decision has not yet been made. Goldman Sachs expects the US Treasury to run out June 8-13. And JPMorgan, Bank of America and Citigroup Inc executives say the damage to US business and the economy will begin long before a technical default. Investors see cash as a safe haven in case of default.

→ Strong retail sales data released yesterday. Core Retail Sales was +0.4%, while the values for the previous two months were negative.

The strengthening US dollar led to a fall in the exchange rate against the USD, to a decrease in the price of gold, as well as bitcoin.

AUD/USD and NZD/USD Weekly Chart Outlook
aud.png


AUD/USD struggled to stay above 0.7000 and corrected lower. Similarly, NZD/USD is facing strong resistance near 0.6540.

Important Takeaways for AUD/USD and NZD/USD Analysis

  • The Aussie Dollar started a downside correction from the 0.7150 zone against the US Dollar.
  • There is a crucial bearish trend line forming with resistance near 0.6900 on the weekly chart of AUD/USD at FXOpen.
  • NZD/USD also started a steady increase above the 0.5750 and 0.6000 levels.
  • There is a key bearish trend line forming with resistance near 0.6365 on the weekly chart at FXOpen.

AUD/USD Technical Analysis
audx.png


On the weekly chart of AUD/USD at FXOpen, the pair climbed higher above the 0.6540 and 0.6900 resistance levels. However, the Aussie Dollar failed to clear the 0.7150 zone against the US Dollar.

As a result, there was a bearish reaction from the 0.7150 zone. The pair corrected lower below the 0.6900 pivot level and the 50-week simple moving average. Besides, there was a spike below the 50% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the 0.6170 swing low to the 0.7157 high.

On the AUD/USD chart, the pair is now showing bearish signs below the 50-week simple moving average and a crucial bearish trend line with resistance near 0.6900. Only a successful daily close above 0.6900 might start a strong recovery toward the 0.7150 level.

Any more gains might send the pair toward the 0.7550 level. The next major resistance sits near the 0.8000 resistance. On the downside, the first major support is near the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the 0.6170 swing low to the 0.7157 high at 0.6540.

The next major support is near the 0.6400 level, below which the pair may perhaps extend its decline toward the 0.6170 level. Any more losses might call for a move toward the 0.6000 level.

GBP/USD Technical Analysis
gbpx.jpg


On the hourly chart of GBP/USD at FXOpen, the pair started a major decline from well above 1.2520. The British Pound traded below the 1.2500 support zone against the US Dollar.

The pair tested the 1.2390 support zone. A low was formed near 1.2391 and recently the pair started a fresh increase. There was a decent move above the 50-hour simple moving average at 1.2445. More importantly, there was a break above a key bearish trend line with resistance near 1.2445.

Finally, it spiked above the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the 1.2510 swing high to the 1.2391 low. The GBP/USD chart indicates that the pair is facing resistance near the 1.2475 level.

The 76.4% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the 1.2510 swing high to the 1.2391 low is also near 1.2445. The next major resistance is near the 1.2500 level. A clear move above the 1.2500 level could spark a rally toward the 1.2540 level considering the RSI is above 50.

On the downside, there is a major support forming near the 1.2445 level. If there is a downside break below the 1.2445 support, the pair could accelerate lower.

The next major support is near the 1.2390 level, below which the pair could test 1.2350. In the stated case, GBP/USD may perhaps revisit the 1.2320 support. Any more losses could lead the pair toward the 1.2250 support.

On the hourly chart:

  • Both the STOCH and Williams’s percent range indicate overbought levels, which means that in the immediate short term, a decline in the price is expected.
  • The resistance of the channel is broken.
  • The relative strength index is at 63.84, indicating a strong demand for Bitcoin and the continuation of the buying phase in the markets.
  • Most of the major technical indicators are giving a bullish signal, which means that in the immediate short term, we are expecting targets of USD 28,000 and USD 28,500.
  • Bitcoin’s price is now moving above its 100-hour simple moving average and its 100-hour exponential moving average.

EUR/USD Approaches Important Support
eur.png


Yesterday, EUR/USD hit new May’s lows. This week’s latest news contributed to the decline:

→ Germany's GDP in Q1 2023 decreased by 0.3% compared to the previous three months. German media write about the official start of the recession.

→ The US economy in Q1 grew by 1.3% in annual terms.

→ Worrying opinions are spreading about a possible crisis due to the situation in the US housing market. According to JPMorgan analysts, the next shock to the US banking system could be loans for commercial real estate.

→ Traders see the dollar as a reliable asset in the face of the not yet raised US government debt ceiling.

The EUR/USD chart shows that the rate has already fallen by 3.3% from the peaks of May. The rate is approaching the psychological mark of USD 1.07 per euro, which may support the market.
