The Dollar and Gold retrace as Bitcoin consolidates

Last week, there was heavy turbulence in both the traditional and crypto markets to the point where this week has stagnated in terms of price action. There has been a brief consolidation phase in the entire market.

Technicals are pointing at a reversal in the Dollar and investors are expecting upwards gains.  Technicals in the crypto market are flat and we are expecting digital assets to slide down more before a reversal.

Yesterday, the Fed’s hawkish statements barely affected the markets. What has become clear is that the Fed will most likely be hiking 50 basis points in December and this has been priced in by the huge selloff we saw last week.

In today’s DIFX Analytics, we’re going to look into the following assets:

The Dollar is building momentum

The dollar Index is gaining strength as it begins to retrace upwards. The Index briefly saw gains during New York trading but gave those gains back during Tokyo trading.

Yesterday, Fed officials claimed that they were not close to any sort of pivot yet the Dollar barely budged. Technically, we are expecting a retracement toward $107.7 in the near term.

Bitcoin is trading flat 

Bitcoin is still consolidating at the 50-day EMA on the hourly chart. The asset is struggling to break to the upside past $17,000 as the resistance level seems to be quite strong.

RSI rejected the 70 levels and is reading at 56. Price action looks bearish at the moment and we can still expect more downside moves until fundamentals change in the market.

Gold is attempting downside reversal 

Gold has signaled a slight reversal from the uptrend. It is now trading beneath the 50-day EMA on the hourly chart.

RSI is reading at 50. Price action rejected the 50-day EMA at $1766 and is now trading at $1764.

Euro enters bearish retracement

EUR/USD is trading near the 50-day EMA as it enters its reversal. We have seen price action trade between $1.03 & $1.04 during the retracement period.

RSI is falling below 50 indicating further bearish moves. We can expect the price to fall to the support level of around $1.0225.
