Gold Regains $1,800 On Inflation Fears. What’s Next?
spacer.png

Gold has spent the year consolidating. But, curiously enough for market participants, all this time, inflation has been on the rise in the advanced economies all this time.

Most recently, inflation reached levels not seen in decades, running hot in the United States and Europe, two regions where central banks have a hard time generating inflation according to their price stability mandate. But despite the ongoing rise in the prices of goods and services, gold, a traditional hedge against inflation, is powerless. Just the opposite, one may say: it has traded with a bearish tone all year. However, it found important support in the $1,680 area where buyers stepped in.

Last month, gold gained +1.5%, but still ended October down by a little over -6%. Gold equities rallied last month, up by more than +7%, and yet, for the year, they are down close to -12%.

One explanation for gold-related equities and gold’s poor performance is the US dollar index. By the end of October, the dollar index was up by +4.65% on the year, putting pressure on the price of gold.

This is another oddity because the dollar gained while inflation rose, and typically things work the other way around. What will the rest of the trading year bring for gold?

Technical Picture Remains Bullish
spacer.png

From a technical analysis perspective, the price of gold remains bullish. Two pivotal areas should be mentioned here.

On the one hand, in 2021, the price found strong support at the $1,680 level and has since bounced three times from. On the other hand, the $1,960 is a pivotal area on any move higher. While in between, the price of gold continues to consolidate.

However, judging by the triangular consolidation that just ended, the recent move higher above the upper edge of the triangle indicates more strength ahead. On a daily close above $1,850, traders will push for another run to $1,900.

One thing is clear. If inflation does not cool down in the months ahead, gold will have a hard time remaining at the current level. As such, traders should focus on the bigger picture and adjust their positions accordingly.

BTCUSD: Bullish Ascending Channel Above $65,000
Bitcoin is moving in a strong bullish ascending channel above the $65,000 handle, and the continuous demand is pushing the prices of BTCUSD higher today in the European trading session. Bitcoin has already crossed its previous all-time high of $67,700 and is now trading above it.

This bitcoin rally is a result of continuous buying pressure and demand for BTC ETFs. The current trend is expected to continue with the immediate targets of $70,000 this week.

We have seen a moving averages crossover for the 5 hourly MA signifying that in the short-term, a downward correction in the levels of bitcoin is expected.

StochRSI is indicating OVERBOUGHT levels signifying that the markets can enter into a consolidation or price recovery phase at any time. Those who are looking to buy at current market levels will have to wait for the downward correction of prices to get an attractive entry for long-term holdings.

Bitcoin is now moving above its both 100 hourly simple and exponential moving averages.

Medium to long term outlook remains bullish for BTCUSD with targets of $70,000 before the end of this month.

Bitcoin is slowly consolidating its gains without any significant drop in its levels today.

  • Average true range indicates less market volatility
  • Williams percent range is indicating an OVERBOUGHT level
  • The price is now trading just below its pivot level of $67,989
  • All the moving averages are giving a STRONG BUY signal at the current market level of $67,860

Bitcoin Rally Towards $70,000 Confirmed
spacer.png

BTCUSD has already crossed its major resistance level of $64,129 and continues to trade above the important psychological support level of $65,000.

The price of BTCUSD is now facing its Fibonacci resistance level of $67,844 and Camarilla resistance level of $67,914, after which the path towards $70,000 will get cleared.

In the last 24hrs, BTCUSD has gone UP by +3.36% with the price change of +2215$ and has a 24hr trading volume of USD 40.583 billion.

Bitcoin Touches Record Highs on Inflation Fears

Since last week, Bitcoin has witnessed heavy inflow of cash investments with a total value of $95 million USD on US inflation fears. Leading investment firm JPMorgan has already revised its upwards projection for the BTC stating that bitcoin is going to cross $146,000 in the year 2022, and hit the level of $73,000 before the end of 2021.

Next week, bitcoin is also expected to roll out its biggest software update known as Taproot, which will enable increased transaction efficiency and privacy for its users.

Since last week, this news has led to an increase in the total market capitalization of bitcoin by $120 billion USD.

The Week Ahead

If the price of bitcoin continues to hold above the $65,000 handle, we can witness another rally in the markets next week which will eventually push the prices of BTCUSD towards $70,000.

A short-term correction is also expected, pushing the BTCUSD down below the $65,000 mark and also giving more opportunities to fresh buyers in the market. Since the dips in bitcoin remain well supported, there is no possibility of a trend reversal, and the uptrend is expected to continue in the next week.

This week, BTCUSD is expected to cross the $68,000 line and aim for upsides of $69,000 to $69,500 the next week. Both the medium term and long term outlooks remain positive, and next week, we could witness BTC printing at above the $68,000 mark.

ETHUSD: Evening Star Pattern Above $4,500

We observed Ethereum moving in a bearish channel after it touched an all-time high of $4,865, continuing with a sharp drop in profit-taking seen across all the major cryptocurrency exchanges.

The price dynamics of Ethereum has shown an Evening Star pattern above the $4,500 handle, signifying a potential reversal of the bearish trend and the continuation of the medium to long-term bullish trend.

ETHUSD touched an intraday high of $4,847 in yesterday’s US trading session, after which the price saw a downward correction of more than 7%, dropping to an intraday low of $4,471. A consolidation wave towards the level of $4,600 followed next.

ETH is now trading above its classic support level of $4,647 and Fibonacci support level of $4,675. In today’s US trading sessions, it is forming a bearish trend reversal pattern and is about to enter the bullish channel once again.

The bearish correction occurred due to profit taking seen at higher levels, but the dips remain well supported. The price of Ethereum continues to trade above the $4,600 handle in the European trading session.

All the major technical indicators are giving a STRONG BUY signal.

ETH is now trading just above its 200 hourly simple and exponential moving averages.

  • Ethereum trend reversal pattern is seen above the level of $4,500
  • Mid-term range appears to be bullish for ETHUSD
  • Average true range indicates less market volatility

Ether Bearish Trend Reversal Above $4,500 Confirmed
spacer.png

ETHUSD has been surging in a steep trend line since 20th Jul, 2021 when it was ranging at the level of $1,700, yielding its long-term investors profits on a continuous basis.

The uptrend rally is not yet over, and we are still awaiting for Ether to cross the $5,000 handle, after which more upsides will be seen towards the $5,200 to $5,500 range in the coming months.

At present, the price of Ethereum is in a aub-consolidation phase, forming a bearish trend reversal pattern since yesterday.

The relative strength index is at 45, indicating a NEUTRAL market; we could see a range bound movement in the prices of ETHUSD in the US trading session today.

ETH has lost 0.22% with a price change of -$10.33 in the past 24hrs, and has a trading volume of 23.638 billion USD.

The Week Ahead

We have seen a moving averages crossover in the 5-hour range, which signifies a short-term potential trend reversal. ETHUSD will need to remain above the $4,700 handle for the bullish trend confirmation, and this week, we are looking for levels of $4,800 to $4,950.

StochRSI is OVERBOUGHT which indicates that the prices are going to REVERSE very soon.

The current levels are very attractive for entering into the markets with the target of $5,000.

The price of ETHUSD has already broken its pivot level of $4,674 and Fibonacci resistance level of $4,700. We should see the prices of ETHUSD touching an all-time high again next week, printing at above the $5,000 handle.

EURO AT MULTI-MONTH LOW
spacer.png

This Tuesday morning, the euro futures on the CME are trading below the psychological level of 1.14. Compared with the May 25 high of 1.227, the drop has already amounted to more than 7%. The last time the euro traded below 1.14 was in July 2020.

One of the drivers that pushed the euro below the 1.14 level was European Central Bank President Christine Lagarde’s Monday comments. She positioned that inflation would remain high in the Eurozone for longer than previously expected. “Despite the current inflation surge, the outlook for inflation over the medium term remains subdued,” she said.

But it is too early to raise the interest rate. Given the time lag characteristic of monetary policy implementation, tightening measures would do more harm than good, Lagarde added.

This means that the euro emission policy will continue, so the EURUSD rate has reasonably decreased, but from a technical point of view, we can expect a rebound.

The 1.14 mark served as a strong resistance (1) in stormy March 2020. In June, this level proved its significance once again (2), but was broken through upwards against growing volumes (3) in July 2020. Now we may see 1.14 acting as support and being effective at least to some degree, which, however, may prove to be sufficient for speculation on the short-term horizon.

SATOSHI NAKAMOTO'S IDENTITY COULD BE REVEALED IN COURT

The identity of bitcoin creator Satoshi Nakamoto, who had appeared exclusively online before vanishing in 2011, remains a mystery. The glory of the creator of the world’s principal cryptocurrency and alleged holder of 1.1 million bitcoins haunts many a crypto enthusiast.

Various versions suggest that the bitcoin creator hiding under the pseudonym is Dorian Nakamoto, Nick Szabo, or Hal Finney, but these theories have not been confirmed.

Today, the person in the media spotlight is Craig Wright, a programmer who, for several years now, has been claiming he is the notorious Satoshi Nakamoto. While the general public considers the evidence he’s presented to be inconclusive, his story has taken an unexpected turn.

The family of Dave Kleiman, a programmer who contributed to bitcoin’s creation but died in 2013, sued Wright in Florida, demanding that he share the 1.1 million bitcoins. The family's lawyer claims to possess evidence that Kleiman had mined the coins that are stored in Satoshi's wallet.

It is up to the court to rule out whether Wright is who he claims to be and whether he should share his stash of bitcoin. One important thing is that if Satoshi's identity is confirmed, Wright will become the most authoritative personality in the crypto world, dramatically affecting the BTCUSD rate.

So far, bitcoin has been weakening, which we talked about in our earlier publications.

November 10 (1) saw high sales volumes. They held back the upside attempt on November 14-15 (2) and jeopardized the trendline (3), which has now been broken. Note that the November 15 high (2) is 50% of the AB decline, while the November 14 bullish candlestick has low volume (5), implying weak demand. All of this paints a bearish picture. We expect an attempt to test the breakdown of line (3).

Rivian Doubles in Price In Less Than One Week Since Its IPO
spacer.png

Rivian (NASDAQ:RIVN) is an electric vehicle startup backed by Jeff Bezos, the CEO of Amazon. It listed its shares last week on NASDAQ at an IPO (initial public offering) price of $78. To the surprise of many market participants, the stock price has doubled in just one week since then, trading close to $170/share, resulting in a market capitalization larger than that of some well-established companies such as Volkswagen.

Investors still bet big on renewable energy solutions, as many governments in the developed world plan to phase out the combustion engine in the next decade or so. As such, electric vehicle companies have surged on the world's stock exchanges, even though they are not manufacturing that many vehicles.

Take Rivian — founded in 2009, it currently employs about 6,000 people. In the first trading week, the stock market performance propelled the company above Ford's market capitalization, despite Ford employing 178,000 people and delivering far more cars.

Other Electric Vehicle Makers Have Seen Stock Price Surge in 2021
spacer.png

Rivian's performance in the first trading week since it became a publicly listed company should not come as a surprise. While impressive, its stock price performance follows closely in the footsteps of other similar companies that have outperformed the market in 2021.

Lucid Group (NASDAQ:LCID) is one of them. It develops electric vehicle technologies such as full cars as well as battery systems. The stock price has gone up over +340% this year alone.

Tesla is another such company, only this time, it needs no introduction. Tesla is one of the world's biggest brands, and its charismatic CEO, Elon Musk, is constantly in the papers. Most recently, Musk held a Twitter poll asking if he should sell 10% of Tesla shares. Millions of voters urged him to do so — so he did. Yet, despite the massive selling, Tesla shares have rallied over +145% in the last twelve months, and more than +2,600% in the last five years. TSLA currently trades above $1,000 a share, as buyers emerged on every dip.

All in all, the electric vehicle industry is popular among investors as governments fight to tackle climate change. Sky-high valuations seem to not matter for retail investors who want to get exposure to the industry and are willing to pay multiple times their current earnings.

ETHUSD: Descending Triangle Pattern Below $4,300

Ethereum failed to continue its bullish momentum this week and after touching an intraday high of $4,765 on 16th Nov, started a steep decline towards the $4,300 handle.

We can see a descending triangle pattern below $4,300 which signifies that the downtrend is expected to continue as more and more traders are entering short positions in Ethereum in hopes of making profit from a falling market.

ETHUSD touched an intraday low of $4,118 in the European trading session today, after which the prices stabilized and continue to trade above the $4,200 level.

StochRSI is indicating OVERSOLD level, which means that the market is in a position to enter into a consolidation phase, and the prices will continue to move in a narrow range between $4,200 and $4,400.

ETH is now trading below its pivot level of $4,243 and moving in continuation of a bearish trend. The price of ETHUSD is now testing its classic support level of $4,197 and its Fibonacci support level of $4,213. After this, the path towards $4,000 will get cleared.

ETHUSD is facing heavy downwards pressure and has already broken its key support level of $4,240 today.

All the major technical indicators are giving a STRONG SELL signal.

ETH is now trading below both the 100 hourly and 200 hourly simple moving averages.

  • Ethereum is in continuation of a bearish channel
  • Short-term range appears to be bearish for ETHUSD
  • All the moving averages are giving a STRONG SELL signal
  • Williams percent range is indicating OVERSOLD markets

Ether Bearish Trend Continuation Below $4,300
spacer.png

ETHUSD has been moving in a steep downturn since yesterday, and this is a short-term bearish reversal of the market. The medium to long-term outlook for ETH remains bullish.

The present market condition offers short-term traders to enter into SELL positions, with the immediate targets of $4,100 and $4,000.

The price of ETHUSD will need to remain above the important psychological support level of $4,000 this week to mark the reversal of this bearish channel.

The average true range is indicating low market volatility as we can see a drop of 26% in the trading volume as compared to yesterday. This means that fresh buyers are not willing to enter the markets given the bearish nature of the trend.

ETH has gained +1.15% with a price change of +47.70$ in the past 24hrs and has a trading volume of 18.471 billion USD.

The Week Ahead

Ether is expected to continue this downtrend this week and touch the level of $4,100 or even break the $4,000 handle. Since the long-term bullish tone is still present, the dips below $4,000 will remain well supported and will continue to push the prices higher.

StochRSI is OVERSOLD which indicates that the prices are going to REVERSE very soon.

The current level is very attractive for entering into the markets with short-term position and the target of $4,000.

The price of ETHUSD has already broken its Camarilla support level of $4,234 and further downsides are expected below $4,200 in the coming days. Next week, we can expect a reversal of this bearish trend.

Technical Indicators:

Stoch (9,6): at 26.571 indicating a SELL

Relative strength index (14-day): at 43.318 indicating a SELL

Ultimate oscillator: at 39.654 indicating a SELL

Rate of price change: at -0.687 indicating a SELL

Euro Under Pressure as COVID Cases Mount

spacer.png

Winter has arrived in Europe and, with it, a new wave of COVID-19 infections. Despite Europe doing a relatively good job at vaccinating the population, the current vaccination rate is not substantial enough to curb the infection in some countries.

COVID-19 infections are mounting once again, thus putting pressure on economies. Austria, for example, announced a new three-week lockdown in a desperate attempt to stop the virus and also to save the ski season (that has just started), as the tourism industry contributes in no small measure to the Austrian GDP.

Moreover, the country announced that vaccination will become compulsory starting from February next year. The development has triggered a decline in euro pairs, with the EURUSD exchange rate trading below 1.13, and the EURJPY below 129.

Fed Turns Hawkish

spacer.png

The Federal Reserve of the United States announced the tapering of its quantitative easing and a gradual phase-out of the bond-buying program. However, last week, some Fed members argued for a faster reduction to tapering and signaled at least one rate hike to come in 2022. As such, the divergence with other central banks will support the dollar in the period ahead.

On the other hand, the European Central Bank clearly has no intentions of hiking the interest rate next year. As such, from a monetary policy perspective, the euro has no reason to rise anytime soon.

All euro pairs have come under pressure, not only the EURUSD. The EURJPY, for instance, traded with a bid tone all year but failed at the 133 level. In a matter of just a few days, it declined below 129 despite the USDJPY holding above 114.

EURGBP is another pair reflecting the euro’s weakness. In addition, the Bank of England has voiced some concerns about the rising inflation rate, which could mean it following in the Fed’s footsteps sooner rather than later. Therefore, further declines in the cross pair should be expected.

All in all, the euro looks weak here ahead of Thanksgiving and at the start of the winter season. As COVID-19 puts pressure on the European economies again, traders have no incentives to buy the common currency.

BTCUSD and XRPUSD Technical Analysis – 23rd NOV, 2021

BTCUSD: Head and Shoulders Pattern Below $60,000

Bitcoin is moving in continuation of a strong bearish trend this week, and any attempts towards a bullish reversal failed. This is the reason we see BTCUSD trading below the $60,000 handle in the European trading session today.

We can clearly see a head-and-shoulders pattern below the $60,000 level which signifies that we are in a confirmed downtrend.

Yesterday, we saw yesterday BTCUSD touching an intraday high of $59,965 after which the prices started to decline and touched an intraday low of $55,676, with today’s intraday low of $55,864.

We can see a continuous downwards selling pressure in bitcoin today, and more losses are expected in the coming days.

The immediate short-term outlook for bitcoin turned bearish, and now we are looking at levels of $55,000 and $52,000.

Williams percent range is overbought which signifies that more selling is expected today in the US trading session which will push the prices of BTCUSD below the $55,000 handle.

Bitcoin is now moving below both the 100 hourly simple and exponential moving averages.

The average true range is indicating less market volatility which means that markets are due to enter a consolidation phase soon.

  • Bitcoin’s downtrend continues aiming for downsides below $55,000
  • Stoch is indicating OVERBOUGHT levels
  • The price is now trading just below its pivot level of $56,080
  • All moving averages are giving a STRONG SELL signal at current market levels of $56,278

Bitcoin: Strong Bearish Trend Towards $55,000
spacer.png

BTCUSD has already broken its support level of $56,500 and is now about to break its important psychological support level of $55,000.

The price of BTCUSD is trading above its classic support level of $55,242 and Fibonacci support level of $55,874 in the European trading session.

In the last 24hrs, BTCUSD has gone DOWN by -2.21% with a price change of -1271$ and has a 24hr trading volume of USD 35.677 billion.

Bitcoin Bonds

El Salvador has become the first country to issue a $1 billion bitcoin bond with a 10-year maturity on the Liquid Network.

The new bitcoin-linked bond appears to be the highest-yielding fixed income instrument globally. This bond will yield a 6.5% rate of annual interest payments to its investors.

The credit rating for this bitcoin bond is negative due to the distressed-debt situation of El Salvador.

El Salvador adopted bitcoin as legal tender in  June 2021, after which Moody's Investors Service downgraded the long-term foreign-currency issuer and senior unsecured ratings to Caa1 from B3.

The Week Ahead

The downward selling pressure seen in Bitcoin is expected to push its prices to the $52,000 range, after which a fresh wave of consolidation and an uptrend move is expected.

The bearish trend formation continues and is expected to push the prices below the level of $54,000 this week. After touching a low of $52,000, a potential bullish trend reversal is expected for which we will have to wait until next week.

The prices will need to remain above the important support level of $52,682 for a bullish reversal of the markets.

Technical Indicators:

Relative strength index (14-day): at 35.28 indicating a SELL

Average directional change (14-day): at 40.639 indicating a SELL

Moving averages convergence divergence (12,26): at -442.90 indicating a SELL

ETHUSD: Double Bottom Pattern Above $4,000

On Nov 23rd, Ethereum touched a low of $4,030, after which the prices stabilized and, as of yesterday, entered into a consolidation phase.

In today’s Asian trading session, ETHUSD touched an intraday high of $4,334.

We can see a double bottom pattern above $4,000 which signifies a bullish reversal, end of a downtrend and a shift towards an uptrend.

In today’s European trading session, the price of Ethereum continues to rise slowly and is aiming for upsides of $4,400 and $4,500.

The fall in the levels of ETH seen last week occurred due to profit-taking; the bullish tone is back in the markets. The pair is gaining a bullish momentum and is also poised for a rally upwards of $4,500 that can happen any time now.

ETH is trading above its pivot level of $4,276 and moving in a bullish trend. The price of ETHUSD has already broken its classic resistance level of $4,298 and its Fibonacci resistance level of $4,290. In the US trading session, it is aiming towards the $4,400 handle.

All the major technical indicators are giving a STRONG BUY signal.

ETH is now trading above both the 100 hourly and 200 hourly simple moving averages.

  • Ethereum is in continuation of bullish channel
  • Short-term range appears to be bullish for ETHUSD
  • All the moving averages are giving a STRONG BUY signal

Ether: Bullish Trend Towards $4,500 Confirmed
spacer.png

ETHUSD was moving in a consolidation channel in the early Asian trading session today after which a bullish momentum started pushing the price above the $4,300 handle.

We can see that last week’s heavy-selling pressure has exhausted, and now buyers are returning to the markets.

The relative strength index is NEUTRAL which signifies a potential trend reversal today.

It is best to enter into long positions in Ethereum at the present market level of $4,300 with targets of $5,000 the next month.

The average true range is indicating low market volatility as we can see a 12% drop in the trading volume as compared to yesterday. This is because the market was in a consolidation phase and the buyers were waiting for a bullish pattern which is clearly visible now.

ETH has gained +0.63% with a price change of +26.94$ in the past 24hrs and has a trading volume of 18.729 billion USD.

The Week Ahead

Ether is printing above $4,300 today, and we could see $4,500 this week.

The medium-to-long term outlook for Ether remains bullish, targeting $5,000 and above in the next month.

We can already see an increase in Ethereum’s market capitalization which currently stands at $510 billion.

The price of ETHUSD has already broken its key resistance level of $4,270 and is about to break its next resistance level of $4,335.

We could see Ether printing at above $4,500 next week and aim upsides towards the $5,000 handle.

At present, the market is offering a good buying opportunity for long-term traders who can hold till it reaches $10,000 in 2022.

Technical Indicators:

The commodity channel index (14-day): at 56.55 indicating a BUY

Global Share Price Growth Across the Decade

A Comparison of Global Companies Share price since 2011

Here at FXOpen, we are interested in the volatility of the stock market and our online share trading account provides clients with the opportunity to trade equity CFDs. Using CFD trading is a different way to invest in shares, as you don’t become the owner of the shares but take a position on whether the price will go up or down, speculating on the future share price of the company.

We have compared how some of the major global companies share price has changed over the past decade.

To demonstrate our findings, we have created an infographic which shows the percentage share increases of some of the world’s biggest companies in the last ten years and how they have compared against one another.

spacer.png

Tesla tops growth over the past decade

In 2012 Tesla’s yearly percentage growth was minus 4%, yet the ten years since have told a completely different story, with their overall percentage increase since 2011 standing at 13,198%. Over double the growth of Netflix who sat second in the global companies we analysed.

The appetite for electric car models has increased in the past decade and that correlates with the rise in Tesla’s share price. Periods of strong sales and reviews have increased the share price over the last ten years.

The automotive company has seen huge rises in their share price since 2019. October 1st 2019 saw their share price at $62.98, while the same period in 2021 it had rise to $780.59, again due to strong sales and the entering of the S&P 500 in late 2020.

Netflix sees huge share price increase

Similar to Tesla, Netflix yearly growth from 2011-2012 was minus 3% but their share price has been soaring ever since, with the share price percentage increasing by over 5000% since 2011.

Due to international expansion in 2012 to Europe and a further 130 new markets in 2016, the subscription numbers have risen dramatically, with this year Netflix hitting 214 million subscribers, nearly ten times the subscribers they had in 2011.

Alongside global expansion, the streaming service started making their original content from 2012 which has been ever present in recent years and in 2012 for the first time they beat HBO as they received 112 Emmy nominations.

Netflix growth on the stock market dominated the other global companies we analysed, as it was the most successful company on the S&P 500 pre 2020. It has only been the past two years where Tesla share price growth levels have surpassed Netflix’s.

Technology giants see strong growth

In the past decade, Apple, Microsoft and Amazon have all seen impressive share price growth of over 1000% since 2011.

Since 2011 Amazon’s share price has seen the highest percentage growth out of the three global technology companies, with an increase of over 1400%. The mammoth growth shown by Amazon is largely due to the popularity of Amazon Prime, their subscription service which saw a huge increase in the pandemic due to consumers having to stay at home.

Microsoft (+1247%) and Apple (+1037%) have both seen their share price increase consistently in the past ten years. Microsoft have seen continued large scale growth on the stock market since the appointment of CEO Satya Nadella in 2014.

Apple share price is largely impacted due to their product demand. Their share price rose in 2015 as a result of the large iPhone screens success while recently they have seen a rise in their share price due to the strong demand of their iPhone 12 at the end of 2020.

Facebook shows huge returns in first decade on the stock market

Since Facebook went public in 2012, the world’s largest social media firm has seen massive growth in their share price. Initially going public at a share price of $38, by 2021 that had increased to over $300, giving an increase of 1477%.

Facebook shares have seen consistent strong growth owing to the increase numbers of active users and the aggressive growth strategy through acquisitions such as Instagram in 2012 and WhatsApp in 2014. Facebook’s growth in the past decade is significantly higher than its closest competitors, with Twitter’s share price actually decreasing by 4% over that time.

The social media company has had some dips during their time on the stock market so far, in particular in 2018 when 50 million people had their data compromised by Cambridge Analytica.

Pepsi v Coca Cola

Pepsi-Co and Coca Cola Corporation have been competitors in the non-alcoholic beverage industry for many years. But how does the share price of the two powerhouses compare?

Over the past ten years, the share price of Pepsi-Co has increased by 230%. This is nearly double the 116% increase that Coca Cola has seen since 2011. Both brands had a similar yearly percentage increase in 2012 but since then, the Pepsi-Co share price has seen greater increases than Coca-Cola.

All the global companies on the stock market that we have analysed have seen over 100% growth since 2011 but Tesla and Netflix lead the way with colossal share price increases in the last decade. However, over the past ten years the share price of global companies has shown volatility due to the demand for shares relying on various factors such as company success, news stories and wider economic trends.

Stock CFD trading thwarted by exit of energy and utility companies? Not today!
spacer.png

The past few months have proven very uncertain for a large percentage of the British public as a very unusual circumstance took the energy and utilities market by storm.

Since the summer of 2021, over 20 energy and utilities companies have exited the British market, many of which have gone bankrupt due to the rising cost of oil and gas and the inability of these companies to be able to pass that cost on to their customers.

This has created what is being described as a 'cost of living crisis' as the remaining large energy providers have now been left to onboard those whose services have ended, meaning that bills have gone up for a large percentage of the UK population.

Some of the now defunct energy companies were privately held, however some had their stock publicly listed on the London Stock Exchange, meaning that they were sizeable entities in their own right.

It would therefore be quite understandable for investors and traders to shy away from utilities or energy company stocks at this point in time, especially given the ultra-conservative approach many firms have taken in trying to absorb some of the increased logistical, supply chain and raw materials cost themselves in order to avoid passing it onto customers who are already cash-strapped and therefore could end up getting into debt with their bills, that energy companies may well be not in favour.

Actually, that is not quite the case, as United Utilities PLC, a large British water company, is experiencing a steady increase in investor confidence.

Its value was relatively flat during November, however all of a sudden at the end of the month United Utilities stock began to rise going from £10.94 per share on November 17 to £10.95 by November 26.

Suddenly, the price dropped on December 1, but this morning it has risen once again and recovered very quickly shortly after the opening bell at the London trading session.

Currently, United Utilities is trading at £10.90 per share which is 0.6% up on yesterday, and 1.35% over the weekly moving average.

Whilst these do not necessarily sound like large movements, they are for a utilities company at this particular time, and the trendline that shows investor confidence with steady upward growth with a minor blip of downward volatility yesterday which was very quickly recovered.

Therefore, United Utilities performance on the London market is perhaps a breath of fresh air to traders who have previously enjoyed the blue chip, evergreen nature of utility companies and have recently had their plans thwarted by the exit of many energy firms from the market.

Going with the flow has certainly a double meaning on this occasion!

ETHUSD and LTCUSD Technical Analysis – 02nd DEC, 2021

ETHUSD: Bullish Engulfing Pattern Above $4,400

Ethereum had a major bearish correction last week when it declined towards the $4,000 handle after touching a high of $4,551.

ETHUSD started this week in a consolidation phase after which it had a bullish reversal towards $4,700 and touched an intraday high of $4,776 in today’s Asian trading session.

We can clearly see a bullish engulfing pattern above $4,400 which signifies a trend reversal, and ETHUSD crossing $4,700.

Ethereum price has retracted from its highs due to some profit-taking, but the bullish channel continues, and this week, we are aiming for the upsides of $4,700 and $4,900.

ETH is now trading above its pivot level of $4,524 and moving in a mild bullish momentum. The price of ETHUSD has already broken its classic resistance level of $4,545, its Fibonacci resistance level of $4,555, and is now aiming towards the $4,600 handle in the US trading session.

Moving averages are giving a NEUTRAL signal.

ETH is now trading above both its 100 hourly and 200 hourly simple moving averages.

  • Ethereum is in a mild bullish channel
  • Short-term trend reversal seen above $4,400
  • All the major technical Indicators are giving NEUTRAL to SELL signals
  • Average true range is indicating LESS market volatility

Ether: Bullish Channel Towards $4,900 Confirmed
spacer.png

ETHUSD is consolidating its gains above $4,500 in the European trading session and we can clearly see that the bullish channel is back.

We are now aiming for the upsides of $4,600 to $4,700 in today’s US trading session. The retracement from $4,000 was very strong, which suggests that there is more room for upsides in Ethereum this month, and $5,500 is the next target.

At present, technical indicators are giving a SELL signal which means that in the immediate short-term we will see a decline before the continuation of a bullish channel.

ETH has declined by -4.26% with a price change of -202.85$ in the past 24hrs and has a trading volume of 26.670 billion USD.
