Gold started the week trending lower as we expected a reversal in the asset. Signs of a reversal have diminished as it recently set a new high after bouncing off the support at $1896 earlier this week.
As we see a slowdown in growth, cooling inflation has fueled a sell-off in the Dollar which in turn, has pushed other assets higher including Gold.
EUR/USD is consolidating as it trades sideways without any clear intentions of a direction. We have seen Bitcoin push up in a bullish fashion along with the rest of the crypto market, but we may see it hold steady as Genesis files for bankruptcy. First reactions don’t look severe at all for the market with hardly any volatility.
In today’s DIFX Analytics, we’re going to look into the following assets:
Bitcoin settling around $21,000
Bitcoin is hovering around the $21,000 level. We are expecting a consolidation around this area before a push upward to break $21,630.
The next resistance for the asset is sitting around $22,500.
Recently, Genesis filed for bankruptcy to become the latest to feel the consequences of the cascading effects of the FTX meltdown.
So far, this has not had a major effect on Bitcoin’s price which is a good sign for bulls.
The dollar may continue its decline
The Dollar is trading near support levels. We may see it trade around this level and depending on sentiment, it can break below to make a move for $101.5.
On the other hand, if Dollar longs could enter the market, we may see some upside toward $103.
Overall, with the 25 basis point rate hike planned for mid-February, traders are expecting more weakness from the Dollar.
Euro in ascending triangle
EUR/USD is going through a consolidation phase with not much action out of the FX pair. Price has been moving sideways between $1.082 – $1.084 for the past day.
We usually see this as a bullish pattern as the ascending lower trend line pushes higher, putting pressure on the resistance.
We can anticipate price action to break resistance to set a new high.
Gold breaks out of the symmetrical triangle
Gold broke out of the symmetrical triangle to the upside. Since it broke out of the trend, we have seen gains pushing to a new high at $1935.
These are bullish signs from the metal and fundamentally, it’s tough to see what will bring it down with inflation seeing a consistent cooling down.
The market should expect a pullback in the near term, however, the asset is bullish in long term.
