Cryptos, Stocks and Commodities Recover

Cryptos, Stocks and Commodities Recover

Markets see a marked improvement in risk sentiment, with stocks, cryptocurrencies and commodities rising steadily while the Japanese Yen and US Dollar weaken.


  • Markets are dominated by a recovery in risk sentiment:

a. Stock markets are up everywhere, despite largely bearish long-term trends.

b. Major cryptocurrencies continue to recover from last week’s technically significant declines. It seems that the danger of a catastrophic collapse has passed.
c. Risk currencies are strong, especially the Australian dollar, while safe havens, the Japanese yen and the US dollar, are selling off. We see a firm move higher in AUD/USD and AUD/JPY in the short term.
d. Agricultural commodities are rising steadily, with several threatening to reach significant new prices.

a. Bitcoin/USD broke below the crucial support at $28,800 and traded as high as $25,400 before recovering with a bullish Pin Bar/Bitcoin reversal to settle above the psychologically important $30,000 level.

b. Ethereum/USD broke below the crucial support at $2,041 and traded as high as $1,700 before bouncing sharply higher to trade above the former key resistance level of $2,048. Bitcoin trading seems a bit stronger than Ethereum.
