    LiteForex analitics. NZD/USD: growth of investment interest in USD

    Current trend

    NZD against USD cannot come out of the wide side channel. For more than a month the pair has been moving within the range of 0.6850-0.6715 due to a decrease in trading activity and an ambiguous fundamental background.

    Last week, strong US GDP data was published, but the labor market subsided, and the Fed did not go on to tighten monetary policy and raise rates. Despite this, USD gained additional demand, and the pair fell to a local minimum of 0.6725, having passed more than 100 points in a few days. At the end of the week, some of the losses were played out but the downward momentum persisted.

    At the moment, there are no important releases. At the end of the week RBNZ will publish a decision on the rates, and in the US there will be data on the labor market and major indices, special attention should be paid to inflation.

    Support and resistance

    The pair has slowed but remains in the long-term downward trend. It is possible that the approach to the lower border will be decisive: either the pair will break it down and go to new local lows, or continue to trade in narrowing consolidation. The consensus forecast indicates an increase in inflation in the US: this may give USD support in view of the increased likelihood of an increase in rates. However, the downward movement is more likely, which means that an increase in the volume of short positions at the current level or at the upper border of the side channel is expected.

    Technical indicators confirm the fall outlook: on D1 chart and above, MACD is already indicating the growth of volume of short positions, and Bollinger Bands are still pointing down.

    Support levels: 0.6725, 0.6710, 0.6690, 0.6650, 0.6610, 0.6575, 0.6500.
    Resistance levels: 0.6700, 0.6790, 0.6830, 0.6850, 0.6880, 0.6895.


    Trading tips

    Short positions may be opened from the current level; pending orders can be opened from the nearest resistance levels of 0.6770, 0.6790 with targets at 0.6650, 0.6575 and the stop loss at 0.6920.

    LiteForex analitics. Ethereum: general review

    Current trend

    After a serious fall last week, the cryptocurrency market stabilized. For a few days, the price of Ether is near 406.25. Investors are waiting for new drivers.

    Intercontinental Exchange (ICE), which owns the NYSE, announced work on the creation of a global platform called Bakkt. Through it, ICE plans to deposit the digital assets, and companies using Bakkt will be able to accept payments in cryptocurrencies.

    Meanwhile, the reliability of digital assets continues to cause doubts. Last week, the SEC denied Winklevoss twins to create an ETF based on Bitcoin under the pretext that the currency is not sufficiently protected from manipulations. Studies of the The Wall Street Journal confirmed the regulator's concerns: there are organized groups of traders on the market that can significantly influence the prices of digital assets through coordinated purchases or sales. Such methods have long been banned in the traditional market, but continue to be operated on the cryptocurrency one.

    Support and resistance

    Technically, Ether continues to trade in the downward channel and in case of breakdown of the level of 406.25 (Murrey [1/8]) it can decrease to 375.00 (Murrey [0/8]) and 312.50 (Murrey [-2/8]). However, Stochastics leaving the oversold zone suggests the possibility of an upward correction. The key for "bulls" is the level of 437.50 (Murrey [1/8], the midline of Bollinger Bands) above the upper border of the descending channel. If it's broken out, targets for growth will be 500.00 (Murrey [4/8]) and 531.25 (Murrey [5/8]).

    Support levels: 406.25, 375.00, 312.50.
    Resistance levels: 437.50, 500.00, 531.25.

    Trading tips

    Long positions may be opened above 437.50 with the target at 500.00 and stop loss at 410.00.

    Short positions may be opened from 395.00 with targets at 375.00, 312.50 and stop loss at 410.00.

    Implementation time: 3-5 days.

    LiteForex analitics. Cryptocurrency Market Review

    This week, the cryptocurrency market continued to correct downwards amid the new decisions of the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). On Thursday, there was an attempt to growth, but in general the trend remains descending. At present, Bitcoin is traded around 6450.00 (–8.3%), Ethereum has fallen to 360.00 (–12.2%), Ripple declined to 0.3200 (–24.1%), Bitcoin Cash fell to the level of 590.00 (–20.1%), and Litecoin decreased to 61.26 (–21.0%).

    The SEC and the uncertainty surrounding the ETF solution continue to weigh on the cryptocurrency market. This week, the regulator postponed to the end of September consideration of the issue of allowing the VanEck and SolidX companies to create a Bitcoin ETF, citing the need for a more thorough analysis of the applications submitted. According to experts, out of 10 companies that applied to the SEC for the creation of ETF, VanEck and SolidX had the greatest chance of obtaining a permit, since they closely cooperate with the Cboe exchange, where they planned to place shares. Therefore, investors were disappointed by the decision of the regulator, hoping for an early solution of the issue. On the other hand, the VanEck and SolidX trust application was not declined immediately, as was the case with the Winklevoss brothers' request a week earlier. Probably, there is a fight of opinions in the SEC, and there is still a chance to receive approval of the application for the trust. Two approvals are needed to introduce a new investment product to the market from the SEC: one is needed for the ETF creation and another one is needed for the right to trade its shares. The second permit should be obtained by Cboe, but consideration of its application was postponed by the SEC to the end of September.

    Among other news of the market there is the intention of the company Opera Ltd. to launch a cryptocurrency wallet in the new version of the browser for the PC, because a similar product in Opera for Android was positively received by the cryptocurrency community. The research of the Wall Street Journal which confirmed the vulnerability of the digital assets market for fraud is also worth attention. The magazine found that there are organized groups of traders at the market that can significantly influence the prices of digital assets through simultaneous coordinated purchases or sales of currencies.

    In general, the trend towards a decrease remains in the cryptocurrency market. Next week, prices may continue the downward movement.

    LiteForex analitics. WTI Crude Oil: general analysis

    Current trend

    Today, oil is trading around ​​67.00, Friday's growth has stopped.

    The traders are focused on the US anti-Iran sanctions. At the end of last week, Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif said that there is no meeting with US officials planned in the near future, including the UN General Assembly to be held next month. The entry into force of US sanctions against the Iranian oil sector is scheduled for November 5. Refusal of dialogue means a continuation of the pressure of the USA on the importer countries to make them refuse of the Iranian oil? Which failed with China and Russia, but France and South Korea stopped cooperating with the Islamic Republic.

    Last year, Iran exported about 2.1 million barrels of oil per day. Probably, the flow will not be completely blocked, however, the US administration expects to reduce supplies by 0.7–1.0 million barrels per day.

However, according to the reversal of the Bollinger Bands and Stochastic downwards, the price is more likely to fall to 65.62 (Murrey [4/8]) and 64.84 (Murrey [3/8]) after the breakdown of the level of 66.40 in the mid-range of Bollinger bands.

    Resistance levels: 67.18, 67.96, 68.75.
    Support levels: 66.40, 65.62, 64.84.

    Trading tips

    LiteForex analitics. USD/CAD: instrument consolidates

    Current trend

    The US Dollar fell against the Canadian currency on Monday, 13 August, after renewing local highs since 24 July.

    As there is a lack of significant economic releases, USD moves due to technical factors. It is supported by strong July US inflation data. Instead of the expected growth, the consumer price index remained at the same level of 2.9%, but the base consumer price index rose from 2.3% to 2.4%. Investors are confident that the regulator will raise the interest rate twice more. Most likely, this will happen at the September and December Fed’s meetings.

    The key US data will be released on Wednesday, when the July data on retail sales and industrial production will be published. It is forecasted that the volume of retail sales may fall from 0.5% to 0.3%, and the index of industrial production can decrease from 0.6% to 0.3%. The implementation of forecasts can affect the USD negatively.

    Support and resistance

    The Bollinger Bands on the daily chart is showing a gradual reverse upwards. The price range is widening but cannot cope with high volatility on the market yet. The MACD is growing and keeping a quite strong buy signal (the histogram remains above the signal line). The Stochastic is growing but is approaching its maximum levels, suggesting the USD is overbought.

    Current indicators’ readings do not contradict further Bullish trend development.

    Support levels: 1.3100, 1.3061, 1.3000, 1.2961, 1.2900.
    Resistance levels: 1.3156, 1.3200, 1.3258, 1.3300.

    Trading tips

    Long positions can be opened after the breakout of the level of 1.3156 with targets at 1.3230, 1.3258 and stop-loss at 1.3100. Validity – 2-3 days.
    Short positions can be opened after the breakdown of the level of 1.3100 with the target at 1.3000 and stop-loss at 1.3150. Validity – 2-3 days.

    LiteForex analitics. Ethereum: general review

    Current trend

    After the decline of the beginning of the week, quotations of Ether have attempted to grow. On Wednesday, the instrument exceeded the 300.00 level, but is now trading around 281.25 (Murray [1/8]). It is difficult to say how strong the upward momentum will be, as the situation on the market remains unstable. Its total capitalization continues to fall – from early August it fell from 278 to 203 billion dollars, which indicates a serious outflow of investors after the refusal or transfer by SEC of a number of applications for the creation of ETFs based on Bitcoin. The share of ETH in the total market capitalization is also decreasing, from 15.7% in early August to 14.1% at present.

    As for the news of the crypto-currency market it is worth noting the continuation of the "migration" of digital companies to Malta, since this country now has the friendliest legislation in relation to digital assets. Following the major exchanges Binance and OKEx, ZB.com, the fifth largest digital exchange in the world, opened its office on the island. The company expects to launch a new platform and exchange crypto currency for fiat money.

    Support and resistance

    At present, the price has risen above the level of 281.25 (Murray [1/8]) and can continue corrective growth to 343.75 (Murray [3/8]) and 375.00 (Murray [4/8], the middle line of Bollinger Bands, the upper border of the channel). The Stochastic exits the oversold zone. However, the potential of the downtrend is not yet exhausted, which is confirmed by the reversal of the Bollinger Bands down and the MACD histogram in the negative zone. The key for the "bears" is the 250.00, its breakdown will insure a decrease to 218.75 (Murray [-1/8]) and 187.50 (Murray [-2/8]).

    Support levels: 250.00, 218.75, 187.50.
    Resistance levels: 312.50, 343.75, 375.00.

    Trading tips

    Long positions can be opened at 313.00 with targets at 343.75, 375.00 and stop loss in the area of ​​290.00.

    Short positions should be opened below the level of 250.00 with targets of 218.75, 187.50 and a stop loss at 280.00.

    Term of realization: 3-5 days.

    LiteForex analitics. Cryptocurrency Market Review

    This week, the cryptocurrency market had mixed dynamics. The decline in the beginning of the week was replaced by a corrective growth, as a result of which a significant part of losses was won back. Bitcoin is currently trading around 6500.00, Ethereum – at 300.00, Ripple – at 0.2930, Bitcoin Cash – at 535.00, and Litecoin – at 56.50.

    The total capitalization of the market this week continued to decline and decreased from 214 to 203 billion dollars. At the same time, the share of altcoins volume in the market is decreasing, and the share of bitcoin has increased from 51% to 53%. It becomes clear that some investors are leaving the market, and some are switching to Bitcoin, hoping for a positive decision by the SEC to register ETF funds in September.

    As for the news of the market, the European Union intends to introduce new ICO rules, which will be implemented through crowd-funding platforms. This is stated in the documents published by the European Parliament's Committee on Economic and Monetary Affairs. It is planned that the organizers of the new ICO, if they expect to collect more than 8 million euros, should work within the framework of European securities legislation. Thus, new ICO products can be equated with the EU in securities. This position is close to the position of the US SEC, whose members also tend to believe that most of the cryptocurrencies are qualitatively securities.

    This week it became known that the Jamaican stock exchange intends to offer its clients cryptocurrencies as trading assets by the end of this year, for which the appropriate platform is being developed. And the Securities and Exchange Commission of Thailand officially authorized the work of five crypto-exchanges and two dealers in the country. In addition, the transfer of large digital companies to Malta continues, the legislation of which is currently the friendliest with respect to cryptocurrencies. Following the major exchanges Binance and OKEx, ZB.com, the fifth largest digital exchange in the world, opened its office on the island. The company expects to launch a new platform and exchange cryptocurrency for fiat money.

    In general, the continuation of the upward correction may continue next week, but the medium-term downtrend is likely to continue.

    LiteForex analitics. Brent Crude Oil: general review

    Current trend

    Oil quotes have been growing since the middle of last week on reports of upcoming US-China trade talks on August 21-22.

    Negotiations can resolve at least some of the contentious issues, although experts warn that there would be no quick results. Quotes are also supported by the probplem of oil transportation from the Perm oil basin. In this regard, the number of active oil rigs in the US for more than two months is within the range of 858-869 units, which is much lower than the peak values of 2014, when it exceeded 1600 units.

    The current growth is likely to be limited, as long-term pressures on the market remain. Investors are still concerned about the trade war, which could cause a decrease in oil consumption in the two leading world economies. But the possible shortage after anti-Iran sanctions will be covered by Saudi Arabia, which was confirmed by the country's energy minister Khalid Al-Falih.

    Support and resistance

    Technically, the price tends to the upper border of the downward channel near the level of 73.43 (Murrey [3/8], the midline of Bollinger Bands). After its breakdown, growth can be continued to 75.00 (Murrey [4/8]) and 76.56 (Murrey [5/8]). The consolidation of the price below 71.87 will lead to the decline to the levels of 70.31 (Murrey [1/8]) and 68.75 (Murrey [0/8]).

    Technical indicators show growth: Stochastic reversed up, MACD histogram is reducing in the negative zone. However, the growth potential is seen as limited.

    Support levels: 71.87, 70.31, 68.75.
    Resistance levels: 73.43, 75.00, 76.56.

    Trading tips

    Sell positions may be opened below 71.87 with targets at 70.31, 68.75 and stop loss at 72.20.
    Buy positions may be opened above 73.43 with targets at 75.00, 76.56 and stop loss at 72.10.

    Implementation time: 3-5 days.
