  • [B]Technical Analysis of BTC/USD for July 21, 2020:

    Crypto Industry News:
    The underground of the Internet, or darknet, is that part of the web that is beyond the reach of traditional browsers and search engines. There are tons of digital markets in this network where all kinds of illegal goods are traded and paid for with cryptocurrencies.

    In a State of Crypto Crimes report released earlier this year, blockchain analyst Chainalysis investigated crimes committed using cryptography, among them darknet transactions, which were the most consistent. In 2019, revenues from online underground markets hit a new record of $ 790 million.

    While indicators on all financial fronts for these markets are rising, one aspect that remains much more consistent is the choice of cryptocurrency.

    "The most popular cryptocurrency used by the darknet is Bitcoin," said Kim Grauer, head of research, and Carles Lopez-Penalver, senior cybercrime analyst at Chainlysis.

    Among the altcoins used are Litecoin, Bitcoin Cash, and Monero. Even though only one of the three cryptos listed above has privacy features, the popular altcoins are widely used. However, some markets have seen exclusive use of Monero because of its encrypted web features, Chainalysis management said.

    Altcoins are even more distant as operations grow in size and scale. According to Bitfury's Crystal Blockchain report, in the first quarter of 2020, darknet entities received more than $ 384 million in Bitcoin and more than $ 411 million was sent, where the recipients of these transactions are exchanges divided between those that have verification requirements and those that do not.

    Unlike high-value Bitcoin transactions, Grauer and Lopez-Penalver added that altcoins are only used for smaller darknet transactions.

    Technical Market Outlook:
    The BTC/USD pair has been trading around the 38% Fibonacci retracement of the last wave down that is located at the level of $9,157. The bears had pushed the price down from the local high made at the level of $9,201, but the price did not come back under the short-term trend line. The momentum remains neutral which indicates another sideways day. The next targets for bulls are seen at the levels of $9,209 and $9,261. The nearest technical support is located at $9,095.

    Weekly Pivot Points:
    WR3 - $9,569
    WR2 - $9,411
    WR1 - $9,271
    Weekly Pivot - $9,117
    WS1 - $8,968
    WS2 - $8,812
    WS3 - $8,862

    Trading Recommendations:
    The volatility on Bitcoin has been subdued for more than two months now, so the larger time frame trend remains down and as long as the level of $10,791 is not violated, all rallies will be treated as a counter-trend corrective moves. This is why the short positions are now more preferred until the level of $10,791 is clearly violated. The key mid-term technical support is located at the level of $7,897.

    • Forecast for EUR/USD on July 22, 2020

      EUR/USD The euro rose by 78 points yesterday due to information that the 750 billion euro fund for the EU's recovery from coronavirus has finally been created. The momentum that the euro received could still grow towards the yet-to-be-reached target of 1.1560, possibly to 1.1620, but along with the fading news itself and local market overheating, which is signaled by the Marlin oscillator forming a divergence with the price, a subsequent reversal of the euro down into the range of 1.195-1.1265 is likely.

      The price is growing above the balance and MACD lines on the H4 chart, the Marlin oscillator is actively growing and is close to overbought.

      The current situation in the euro is such that it is no longer advisable to buy, and too early to sell. Even if we assume the option with a further medium-term rise of the single currency, it is better to wait for the price to pull back, which will occur, at least, in the range of 1.1420/65.

          Technical Market Outlook:
          After the EUR/USD pair had broken through the long-term technical resistance located at the level of 1.1540, the up trend has been confirmed and it is being continued. Currently, the market is trying to extend the rally towards the level of 1.1629 or higher towards the level of 1.1648. The momentum is still strong and positive, but the market conditions are now overbought, so please keep in mind the pull-back scenario during the trading activities. If the support zone seen at the levels of 1.1497 - 1.1483 is clearly violated, then the bigger correction can take place with a target at the level of 1.1361 - 1.1347.The most important for bulls will be the weekly (2 days left) and monthly close (6 days left).

          Weekly Pivot Points:
          WR3 - 1.1642
          WR2 - 1.1541 WR1 - 1.1496
          Weekly Pivot - 1.1397
          WS1 - 1.1342
          WS2 - 1.1243
          WS3 - 1.1193

          Trading Recommendations:
          The key long-term technical resistance is seen at the level of 1.1540 has been violated, so the EUR/USD pair confirmed the up trend. The next targets in the long-term are seen at the levels of 1.1813 - 1.1851.

          • Technical Analysis of GBP/USD for July 27, 2020:

            Technical Market Outlook:
            The GBP/USD pair has been moving up since the market opened after the weekend, so the new temporary swing high was made at the level of 1.2857. Moreover, the bulls had broken out from the ascending channel, which is rather another confirmation of the positive sentiment despite the overbought market conditions. The next target for bulls is seen at the level of 1.2869 and 1.2900. The nearest support is seen at the level of 1.2816 and 1.2786.

            Weekly Pivot Points:
            WR3 - 1.3215
            WR2 - 1.2993
            WR1 - 1.2929
            Weekly Pivot - 1.2717
            WS1 - 1.2632
            WS2 - 1.2427
            WS3 - 1.2355

            Trading Recommendations:
            On the GBP/USD pair the main trend is down, which can be confirmed by the down candles on the weekly time frame chart. The key long-term technical support is seen at the level of 1.1404. The key long-term technical resistance is seen at the level of 1.3518. Only if one of these levels is clearly violated, the main trend might reverse (1.3518) or accelerate (1.1404).

            • Forecast for EUR/USD on July 28, 2020

              EUR/USD
              The euro decided to play its role to the end. Yesterday the price exceeded the target level of 1.1735, closing the day by gaining 96 points. Now the price should reach the upper border of the price channel around 1.1800. With the price level and the Marlin oscillator developing, divergence persists, respectively, we are waiting for the price to reverse down in the medium term. The timing may coincide that a reversal from such a key level will occur tomorrow, that is, on the day of the Federal Reserve's announcement of its decision on monetary policy.

              The oscillator shows a timid attempt to reverse against the rising price on the four-hour chart. This could be noise, or it could be warning a reversal. But since the Fed announces its decision tomorrow, the situation will be resolved on Wednesday.

              The main issue that concerns investors is the Fed's intention to target the yield curve for government bonds. If they hint that this is not necessary, the dollar will get a fresh dose of optimistic mood.

              • Control zones for USDCAD on 07/29/20

                The fall of the pair is a priority, so keeping sales will be beneficial. The 1.3314 level is within the average daily move, which is the June low. A test of this level will increase the likelihood of a large demand.

                It is important to note that the June low coincides with WCZ 1/2 1.3322-1.3310. This indicates the importance of the range for making trading decisions.

                An alternative pattern of continuing the fall will develop if the close of today's trading occurs below 1.3314. This will increase the likelihood of the Canadian dollar strengthening even further

                Daily CZ - daily control zone. The area formed by important data from the futures market, which changes several times a year.

                Weekly CZ - weekly control zone. The zone formed by important marks of the futures market, which changes several times a year.

                Monthly CZ - monthly control zone. The zone, which is a reflection of the average volatility over the past year.

                • Forecast for EUR/USD on July 30, 2020

                  EUR/USD
                  Yesterday, the euro fulfilled its irresistible and inextinguishable desire to work out the border of the global price channel at around 1.1804. This channel originates from the July 2008 high. The price begins to form a divergence with the Marlin Oscillator. The first target of the decline is 1.1620.

                  The Marlin divergence looks unambiguous on the four-hour chart, and it was created twice in a row. We are waiting for the price to move to the target level of 1.1620. On the way to it, the price will face an obstacle in the form of the MACD line in the area of 1.1686.

                  • Technical Analysis of EURUSD for August 3, 2020:

                    Technical Market Outlook:
                    The EUR/USD pair has made a new swing low at the level of 1.1908, but the Bearish Engulfing candlestick pattern was made at the top of the move. The market has returned then below 61% Fibonacci retracement on weekly time frame chart (seen at 1.1822) and is now back in the ascending main channel. The momentum is neutral and the market is coming off the overbought conditions, so the next target for bears is seen at the level of 1.1655 - 1.1629. If the market hits this level, then the healthy correction is completed and the up trend might be resumed.

                    Weekly Pivot Points:
                    WR3 - 1.2175
                    WR2 - 1.2036
                    WR1 - 1.1886

                    WS2 - 1.1507
                    WS3 - 1.1369

                    Trading Recommendations:
                    The EUR/USD pair confirmed the up trend, so all pull-backs and corrections should be used to acumulate the EUR. The next targets in the long-term are seen at the levels of 1.2000 - 1.2089. There is no indication of any bigger correction to come, so all the dips should be bought until the level of 1.1347 is clearly violated.

                    • Forecast for AUD/USD on August 4, 2020

                      AUD/USD
                      The Australian dollar nearly hit its first bearish target of 0.7070 on Monday. And since the technical situation is still decreasing, even intensified somewhat, today we expect the price to attack support at 0.7070. Success will contribute to further decline to the target level of 0.6970, which was approached by the MACD indicator line. Thus, the level acquires strategic importance - breaking it will trigger a mid-term decline of the aussie": the target is 0.6570 - the high on April 30.

                      The price is developing under the balance and MACD indicator lines on the four-hour chart, Marlin in the downward trend zone. There are no signs of a reversal, we are waiting for the price to try to gain a foothold below the 0.7070 level.

                      • Technical Analysis of GBP/USD for August 5, 2020:

                        Technical Market Outlook:
                        The up trend on GBP/USD pair is developing despite some local pull-backs as the bulls has broken through the short-term trend line resistance located around the level of 1.3080. The local high was made at the level of 1.3098 so far, but the market is bouncing from the oversold conditions, so the bulls might try to attack the recent swing high located at the level of 1.3169 soon. Only a sustained breakout below the level of 1.2980 would change the short-term market sentiment and deepen the correction towards the level of 1.2869.

                        Weekly Pivot Points:

                        • Technical Analysis of ETH/USD for August 6, 2020:

                          Crypto Industry Outlook:
                          The launch of the Ethereum Medalla test network, scheduled for 1pm, did not go as smoothly as expected. While the network was successfully launched and offered a sufficient number of blocks at its supposed time of construction, the participation rate was only 57% - well below the expected 80%.

                          This means that only 57% of the rate is implemented for network validation. This is a serious problem because block finality cannot be achieved until the network starts cutting off validators that are offline. Finality means that the block history is irreversible, which is equivalent to the block confirmation threshold in Ethereum 1.0. According to the developers, this could be because many validators signed up by paying 32 ETH without running the validation software. However, customer issues with Nimbus and Lodestar could account for around 10% of that participation gap, said Danny Ryan of the Ethereum Foundation.

                          The network is expected to fix the problem on its own as inactive validators are kicked out, however it may take at least several hours to restore the finality. Meanwhile, developers investigate customer issues.

                          Technical Market Outlook:
                          The ETH/USD pair has broken out from the narrow range located between the levels of $379.59 - $392.79 and made a new local high at the level of $407.03. For now the price is trading close to the recent ATH, around the level of $400 again and the up trend is still being continued. The next target for bulls is seen at the level of $414 and $425.25. The key short-term support is seen at the level of $300. The momentum is still strong and positive, which supports the short-term bullish outlook.

                          Weekly Pivot Points:
                          WR3 - $532.98
                          WR2 - $470.84
                          WR1 - $423.16
                          Weekly Pivot - $365.99
                          WS1 - $312.04
                          WS2 - $255.55
                          WS3 - $208.47

                          Trading Recommendations:
                          Due to the violation of the level of $351, Ethereum is now in the up trend on the long-term time frame. The next target for bulls is seen at the level of $500. The key long-term technical support is located at the level of $86.10, but the zone around $300 - $308 is an important technical support as well.

                          • Technical Analysis of BTC/USD for August 7, 2020:

                            Crypto Industry News:
                            Someone with access to 119,756 Bitcoins stolen from the Bitfinex cryptocurrency exchange in 2016 transferred $ 12 million to unknown wallets in the last six days.

                            According to a series of tweets posted by Whale Alert on Twitter on August 3, wallet addresses known to be linked to one of the largest attacks in the history of cryptocurrency exchanges resulted in the transfer of 620 Bitcoins - with a current value of around $ 7 million - using 4 transactions. On July 29, nearly $ 5 million - or 448 BTC - was transferred in a single transaction. Coupled with the last move of $ 39 million from July 27-28, this is about $ 51 million in Bitcoin that was transferred in over 17 transactions during the week.

                            On August 2, 2016, hackers compromised Bitfinex by stealing 119,756 BTC - worth $ 72 million at the time. After four years and recent growth movements, their total value is now $ 1.3 billion.

                            However, despite the recent movement of $ 51 million, burglars only transferred 1-2% of stolen funds. This suggests that criminals may struggle as they enforce the new anti-money laundering (AML) laws.

                            Technical Market Outlook:
                            The BTC/USD pair keeps hovering around this year's highs and the market sentiment is clearly bullish. The price has broken out from a narrow zone located between the levels of $10,895 - $11,317 and then the local high was made at the level of $11,738 on increased momentum, so bulls are showing their strength. The next target for bulls is of course the last yearly high seen at the level of $12,035. The immediate support for the intraday traders are seen at the levels of $11,646, $11,395 and $11, 317. The volatility is now quite subdued, but it might increase again once any important technical level is tested and broken.

                            Weekly Pivot Points:
                            WR3 - $14,325
                            WR2 - $13,003
                            WR1 - $12,116
                            Weekly Pivot - $10,976
                            WS1 - $9,784
                            WS2 - $8,681
                            WS3 - $7,717

                            Trading Recommendations: Due to the level of $12,000 violation, the Bitcoin is now in the up trend on the long-term time frame. The next target for bulls is seen at the level of $13,712 and $15,000. The key long-term technical support is located at the level of $7,897, but the zone around $9,500 - $10,500 is an important technical support as well.

                              Technical Market Outlook:
                              The GBP/USD pair has been seen moving lower in the recent pull-back. The bears has hit the level of 1.3008 and then the bulls has pushed the rate back towards the level of 1.3067. This is where the Pound starts the early Monday trading and overall is still consolidating the gains despite the recent local pull-backs. The key technical support is seen at the level of 1.2979, so as long as the market trades above it, the odds for another wave up are high.

                              On the GBP/USD pair the main trend is down, which can be confirmed by the down candles on the weekly time frame chart. The key long-term technical support is seen at the level of 1.1404. The key long-term technical resistance is seen at the level of 1.3518. Only if one of these levels is clearly violated, the main trend might reverse (1.3518) or accelerate (1.1404).

                              • Forecast for EUR/USD on August 11, 2020

                                EUR/USD
                                The euro is slowly moving towards its target at 1.1620 (high on October 16, 2018). The Marlin oscillator is declining, remaining in the positive trend zone. As the price moves below the target level of 1.1620, Marlin will obviously already be in a negative, that is, a downward trend. As a result, we are waiting for the new downward movement to strengthen in a new emerging trend. After the price leaves the area below 1.1620, the second target at 1.1490 will open, where the price can meet the MACD line.

                                The decline is taking its course on the four-hour chart; the price is below the balance indicator lines (the balance has strengthened in a downward direction), the MACD line is moving down, that is, the medium-term trend has changed to a downward one. Marlin is also slowly deepening into the zone of negative values, into the zone of the bears' possession.
