  • How is coronavirus spreading around the planet? The US, Italy, Spain, China and Iran are at high risk

    The Chinese pneumonia virus COVID-2019 has "captured" more than 100 countries around the world. More than 105,000 people are infected, mostly in China. The largest number of infected and deaths is in the "hotbed" of infection - China. Apart from China, Italy has been the most affected at the moment, with more than 6,000 cases of infection. More than 200 people were killed. The entire country is under quarantine. Schools and cinemas have been closed, all sporting events have been canceled, and any events where a large number of people may gather are prohibited. Some regions with the highest number of cases are quarantined. Citizens are not allowed to leave their homes without good reason. According to the current plan, such measures have been taken until April 3. No one knows what will happen after April 3. Everything will depend on whether it is possible to stop the spread of infection in the country. The Italian authorities decided to involve an additional 20,000 doctors and nurses in the fight against the virus. The main thing now is to stop the infection. It is noted that about 600 people are in intensive care, but about 600 have fully recovered. The average age of those who died from the virus is 81 years. It follows that first of all deaths are recorded in the elderly. People with weak, due to age-related reasons, immunity and health. 80% of people who died from the virus had other diseases. Thus, on the example of Italy, we can conclude that the virus is not fatal, but can lead to a fatal outcome if the patient has poor health. Thus, the elderly and people with weak immune systems are primarily at risk.

    About 3000 cases of infection have been recorded in the UK, five have died. All of them were elderly people with poor health. All who contacted the dead are isolated, including medical staff. The United States also recorded several hundred cases of the disease (about 700). Most are in the New York State, where a state of emergency has already been declared. Several people died. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo believes mass quarantine is the best way to slow the spread of infection. Washington state has also been one of the most infected. The state recorded about 70 cases of the disease. As in many other countries, those who die from the virus are elderly people. In addition, a large number of patients were recorded in Iran - about 6,000. 145 people died. At the same time, firstly, representatives of the medical sphere believe that the real numbers can be much higher, and secondly, two representatives of the Parliament have already died from the coronavirus.

    Meanwhile, panic is brewing in countries with the highest incidence of the disease. Thank God that so far this word only refers to the desire of people to stock up on all necessary products and not to leave the house without unnecessary need. Therefore, a shortage of certain foods may occur. For example, in the UK, Secretary of Health Matt Hancock urged people not to buy more than they needed, assuring that there was enough food for everyone. The minister also assured that he works with supermarkets in the direction of delivering food and necessary goods to the home in case people have to isolate themselves. However, representatives of UK supermarkets argue that the demand for the most necessary food products is "going wild" and cast doubt on the fact that the authorities will be able to keep the situation under control and provide all citizens with food and basic necessities. One of the directors of large supermarket chains even stated that there were no contacts with the government.

    Quite unexpectedly, Spain took the lead in the number of cases, where according to the latest data, the number of infected exceeded 1200. According to the Minister of Health of Spain, Salvador Illa, the situation with coronavirus in the country has significantly worsened in recent days. Most infections have been reported in Madrid. Most of the cases are elderly people in nursing homes and employees of these homes. Two weeks quarantine has also been announced in Madrid with the closure of all schools, universities and kindergartens.

    • Forecast for GBP/USD on March 12, 2020

      GBP/USD
      The Bank of England lowered its key rate from 0.75% to 0.25% on Wednesday. The pound's initial reaction was to fall by 100 points, but then there was an increase of 150 points, and the day was closed with a loss of 65 points. Volatility in the markets has returned, but the overall trend for strengthening the dollar remains, because the situation in the British economy is significantly deteriorating; according to the latest data, GDP for January showed 0.0%, the trade balance deteriorated from -1.4 billion pounds to -3.7 billion, industrial production decreased by 0.1%, production in the construction sector showed -0.8% in January.

      On the daily scale chart, the surge in growth was stopped by the balance line (red indicator line), meaning that volatility remained within the downward trend. The signal line of the Marlin oscillator is fixed in the decreasing trend zone. Now the target of the pound is the 110.0% Fibonacci level at 1.2647. Overcoming the level opens the second target for the reaction level of 123.6% at the price of 1.2538.

      On the H4 chart, the price is fixed under the balance line and the MACD line, the Marlin is declining and does not show signs of a reversal. We are waiting for the British pound to fall to the designated goals.

      • EURUSD reaches key Fibonacci level and bounces

        EURUSD was expected to pull back towards the key Fibonacci levels we have mentioned in our previous analysis. EURUSD has reached the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement level and has bounced off of it.

        EURUSD has pulled back as a back test of the broken wedge pattern. Price has so far reached the 61.8% level and is bouncing. As we explained in our last Ichimoku cloud analysis, we had a weak sell signal and the first target was the cloud support at 1.1130. Price surpassed our target and reached 1.1060.

        So far the back test is successful and supportive of the bullish continuation of the break out. If price pushes back inside the wedge pattern and stays below, then this would be a very bearish sign.

        • Trader's diary for March 18, 2020, Oil fell amid coronavirus outbreak

          Oil, as can be seen on the chart, fell to $ 26 for two main reasons, first, OPEC Price War in Russia. Second, the global crisis due to coronavirus which leads to a drop in oil demand.

          EURUSD:
          The euro is trying to start a new wave of decline against the dollar.

          Euro is in a fundamentally bad condition as Europe has become the center of the coronavirus pandemic, and the strongest economies namely Italy, Germany and France are at their most vulnerable state. Due to this, the economy will suffer serious losses.

          From an economic point of view, the euro can fall right down to parity with the dollar.

          You can keep sales from 1.1053.

          • Forecast for EUR/USD on March 19, 2020

            EUR/USD
            Yesterday, trading in the euro took place in a wide range of about 250 points, this morning the price tested the resistance of the embedded line of the price channel on the daily chart and returned to the red indicator line balance, and opening day occurred under this line, which speaks of the intention of the price to decline further, the market came under the control of the bears. The goal of the decline is the low line of the price channel around 1.0640.

            On the four-hour chart, yesterday's convergence on the Marlin oscillator turned out to be broken, although its effect was reflected in more than 80-point growth in the euro. Currently, Marlin is developing in its own downward channel, the lower boundary of which is very, very low.

            • Forecast for EUR/USD on March 20, 2020

              EUR/USD
              The euro collapsed by 250 points on Thursday, pausing on the embedded line of the price channel of the daily chart. The signal line of the Marlin oscillator slightly turned upwards, which may develop into a short-term price correction, as an option, to the February 20 low at the price of 1.0778. The departure of the quote under the price channel line (1.0644) opens the target at 1.0493 - the February 2017 low. Price taking above 1.0778 will extend the correction to 1.0879 - to the October 1, 2019 low.

              The Marlin oscillator also reverses upwards on the four-hour chart, remaining within its own descending channel. We are waiting for the correction to be completed as well as for the euro to fall.

                EUR/USD
                The price was marked on the support line of the embedded price channel in the region of 1.0636 on Thursday, Friday, and today. Finally, the signal line of the Marlin oscillator turned upwards on the daily chart, which creates the prerequisite for corrective growth to the level of 1.0879 - to a low of October 1, 2019. Overcoming the Friday low of 1.0636 opens the target 1.0493 - the low of February 2017.

                On the four-hour chart, the Marlin oscillator did not form a strong convergence, the signal line has not yet left the zone of negative indicators. The indicator potential may be enough to work out the price of correctional target of 1.0879.

                  The euro showed a timid correction growth on Monday, but this growth has become confident today in the Asian session. The signal line of the Marlin oscillator continues to gain strength. The first goal of the correction is still the 1.0879 level – the October 1, 2019 low, its overcoming opens the second goal of 1.0967 – the area where the 38.2% Fibonacci level intersects with the embedded line of the price channel and, possibly, also the MACD line, which is approaching this point. The level is created strong, so now we expect the euro to fall from it with a high probability.

                  The Marlin oscillator strengthened the growth on the four-hour chart, the signal line was fixed in the zone of positive values – the first goal of 1.0879 is likely to be taken, and the pair's quote will continue to grow towards the second goal.

                  • Forecast for AUD/USD on March 25, 2020

                    AUD/USD
                    The Australian dollar grew by 145 points on Tuesday, since it worked the correction level of 38.2% of the movement on March 9-19. There are no strong reversal signs, growth to the second correction target by Fibonacci level of 50.0% at the price of 0.6095 is possible.

                    On the four-hour chart, the price has consolidated above the MACD line (blue indicator), which shows the price's intention to continue rising to the next Fibonacci level of 50.0% at the price of 0.6095. The signal line of the Marlin oscillator lies in the lateral direction, which indicates the imminent completion of growth, that is, above 50%, the correction will no longer work.

                    • Forecast for EUR/USD on March 26, 2020

                      EUR/USD
                      The euro added more than 90 points yesterday and reached the first target level of 1.0879. Today, the euro added another 50 points in the Asian session, clearly slowing down on the resistance of the balance line (red indicator ) of the daily price scale. The next growth target is the point of coincidence of the Fibonacci level of 38.2% with the enclosed line of the price channel in the region of 1.0967. At about the same moment, the signal line of the Marlin oscillator can touch the zero line - the boundary with the growth territory, and turn down.

                      The price touched the MACD line on the four-hour chart, according to Marlin there is no reversal formation, as a result, the price can make a false exit above the MACD line with working out the target on the daily timeframe, after which we wait for the price to turn down with the target at 1.0636.

                      • Forecast for EUR/USD on March 27, 2020

                        EUR/USD
                        The euro climbed 150 points on Thursday due to rising risk appetite amid massive infusion of dollar liquidity by the Federal Reserve worth 75 billion dollars a day, the stock market will grow more than 6% (S&P 500 6.24%) and at the same time on the tragic data on applications for unemployment benefits – this past week showed the US economy's opinion in antivirus quarantine, the number of applications reached 3.283 million (!) against the forecast of 1.648 million Before the highest record figure was 669,000 in April 2009. The employment forecast for the next week shows economists' expectations for an increase in unemployment in March from 3.5% to 4.0% and a decrease in non-agricultural employment by 420,000 (in September 2008-422,000). In the euro area, the employment situation is even worse than in the US, but the markets in this situation have traditionally reacted sensitively to the very fact of bad data. Unemployment in Germany for March is expected to rise to 5.1%. We are cautious about the growth of the euro. Also, in the market, investors are taking risks with caution – the trading volume was even less than in the previous days of the week.

                        The correction was already 50% of the fall on March 9-20. The euro's desire to continue its corrective growth to 61.8% will be fraught with even greater difficulties. The Fibonacci level range of 50.0-61.8% contains multiple technical levels that have accumulated since July 2019. The price is currently above the MACD line and the Marlin oscillator has broken into the growth zone, but the market just needs to swing down a little and the indicators will again be in negative values. Consolidating the price above the Fibonacci level of 50.0% (1.1070) will make it possible to continue growth from the Fibonacci level of 61.8% at the price of 1.1170. Moving the price under the 38.2% Fibonacci level, which will also mean breaking through the support of the price channel (1.0970), opening a promising goal of 1.0630 along the lower line of the price channel. The intermediate target level of 1.0879 is the low of October 1, 2019.

                        The price is still in a growing position on the four-hour chart, but the leading indicator Marlin is already turning down. We are waiting for the development of events.
