GBP/USD Technical Analysis

This past week, the British Pound found support near the 1.1150 zone against the US Dollar. The GBP/USD pair formed a base and started a steady recovery wave above the 1.1200 level.

There was a clear move above the 1.1250 resistance and the 50 hourly simple moving average. The pair even traded above the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the main decline from the 1.1564 swing high to 1.1146 low.

An immediate resistance on the upside is near the 1.1355 level. It is near the 50% Fib retracement level of the main decline from the 1.1564 swing high to 1.1146 low.

The next major resistance is near the 1.1380 level. There is also a key bearish trend line forming with resistance near 1.1395 on the hourly chart of GBP/USD, above which the pair could start a steady increase towards 1.1450.

An upside break above 1.1450 might start a fresh increase towards 1.1550. Any more gains might call for a move towards 1.1600 or even 1.1640.

An immediate support is near the 1.1300. The next major support is near the 1.1270 level and the 50 hourly simple moving average. If there is a break below the 1.1270 support, the pair could test the 1.1200 support. Any more losses might send GBP/USD towards 1.1150.

House prices in the UK take a nosedive hinting at depth of recession
dc.jpg


Whilst it certainly is true that house prices in the UK do not bear a direct relation to the capital markets or world of multi-asset electronic trading, it is most certainly a point of interest that when house prices move up or down, it is an indicator of the confidence in, and security of the domestic economy.

Britain is a home-owning nation. The phrase 'An Englishman's home is his castle' has been very appropriate for many generations and more than just a home, many residents in the United Kingdom see their home as a solid investment which should appreciate steadily over time.

Therefore, when house prices actually decrease, especially by some significant amount, such a decrease can be used as a measure of the weakening condition of the overall economy, which in turn may affect currency and stock markets.

The decreasing value of the British Pound against Western major currencies during the course of mid-2022 until very recently has been a case in point.

Just a few days after the shortest tenure for any Prime Minister in British history was held by Liz Truss for just 44 days, replacement Prime Minister Rishi Sunak took office and the new Chancellor of the Exchequer reversed Ms. Truss and former chancellor Kwasi Kwarteng's budget, with some commentators having even ventured their opinion that had it not been reversed, severe fiscal damage may have been done to the British economy.

Now, as the economy continues to flounder, house prices are at their lowest point since February 2021, this time caused by the increasing cost of borrowing money from banks in the form of mortgages, and the removal of a series of mortgage products from the market by no less than 10 British banks.

Those with mortgages are set for in some cases substantial increases in monthly payments as the interest rates continue to rise, with an expectation of 5 to 6% being reached by January 2023.

Average house prices slid 0.4 per cent between September and October, the most they have fallen since February 2021 and following a 0.1 per cent decline in September according to data from Halifax, one of the UK's largest mortgage lenders.

In February 2021, house prices were at a low point after a brutal period of lockdowns during which many people found their place of employment closed by the government, and payment holidays were commonplace as were fears of unaffordability of monthly commitments.

During the middle of 2021, the British government canceled stamp duty (property purchase tax) for buyers of properties under a certain value, which boosted the market and prices of lower valued properties increased tremendously, largely bolstered by 'buy-to=let' landlords picking up properties with no purchase tax.

That has long since ended, and now with the economy in a sustained state of recession, house prices are once again an indicator of the overall health of the fiscal position in the United Kingdom.

US Tech stocks under scrutiny as layoffs make presence felt
tech-stocks.jpg


During the course of last year, the previously very steady 'big tech' stocks became very volatile.

Big tech - a term often used to describe large-cap, publicly listed technology giants with their origins in Silicon Valley such as Meta, Alphabet (Google), Twitter, Tesla, Netflix and Amazon - is an area of the US stock market indices which has over recent years attracted steady, conservative investment due to overall lack of sudden movements.

The past 12 months have turned that on its head, and there have been times at which the Dow Jones and S&P500 indices, along with the overall performance of the two major New York-based stock exchanges, NYSE and NASDAQ having been affected noticeably by larger moves than had previously been the case.

One of the reasons for the sudden volatility had been the need for US tech firms to have to pay their suppliers and employees in different countries more, due to inflation and the depreciation of certain currencies against the US Dollar, however there had been a few more reasons and some of them are down to internal corporate policy. For example, Elon Musk's recent attempts to purchase Twitter have been surrounded by speculation that he may fire a substantial proportion of the existing workforce.

Overall, however, the staff redundancies in the big tech sector have not been limited to high profile speculation about Elon Musk's plans at Twitter. They have been far more widespread than this, as depicted by last week's employment figures released by the US Government.

Whilst some 261,000 new jobs were filled in the United States in October, blowing away analyst expectations of 200,000, the tech sector has been slowing down recruitment, and in some cases laying off existing staff.

Amazon, Apple and Facebook (Meta) have all announced hiring freezes, and in some cases are making redundancies.

Californian ride-sharing app developer Lyft is about to lay off 13% of its staff, and among the bigshots, Facebook is looking at reducing its workforce at subsidiaries WhatsApp and Instagram.

On a Year on Year basis, Amazon stock is down over 40% and Apple stock is down 25%, partly caused by production delays of its new iPhone 14 which is produced in China and has been subject to factory closures due to the Chinese government's draconian lockdowns which are still in force.

If the sensationalist news is to be believed, Twitter would look to lay off half of its entire payroll under Elon Musk's leadership.

Interestingly, despite the clear downturn in tech company revenues and their intention to reduce headcount compared to the 'low tech' American industries actually hiring more than expected in October, the S&P500 is actually up to 3,800 today compared to yesterday's low point of less than 3,700 which represented a five-day low.

The NASDAQ composite index is up a little too, at 10,560 over yesterday's 10,294 but today's increases still do not take it back to the high points at the beginning of last week.

It appears as though these possible layoffs are currently lingering in the background and until they have actually taken place, corporate performance is still being taken at face value.

What this does show, however, is that tech stocks are still quite steady and not so easily affected by news and are more affected by actions from within the firms themselves.

Bitcoin touched an intraday high of 20666 and an intraday low of 19413 in the Asian trading session today.

Both the STOCH and Williams percent range are indicating overbought levels which means that in the immediate short term, a decline in the prices is expected.

Tesla stock takes very mild downturn as Musk sells $4 billion worth of stock
02.jpg


Tesla has proven itself to be an extremely unusual force to be reckoned with not only by way of the disruptive influence it has had on the traditional motor industry which is suddenly rallying to transition from internal combustion to electric power, but also on the world of large corporate industry.

As recently as 10 years ago, most motorists worldwide would have continued their long-held belief that electric cars are awful contraptions and that there is nothing like a powerful internal combustion engine to reinforce the fun and experience of car ownership and the driving experience, and motoring groups and media mocked the gormless 'milk float' stature of the attempts to go electric that had gone before.

Suddenly from outside the car industry came Tesla, with no heritage and no 120 years of automotive pedigree and took the world by storm.

Now, Tesla has ten times the market capitalization of Ford Motor Company and is considered to be among America's 'big tech' band of commercial giants such as Amazon and Google.

Yesterday, CEO Elon Musk sold $4 billion worth of Tesla stock. That is a lot of money. It is also a big move by a CEO who is well known for his self-starting, 'my way or the highway' approach to running businesses and influencing entire market sectors and industries.

Surely if Elon Musk cashes out to such a degree, the direction of the company may be diluted and it would take a downturn?

Not really. Yes, the stock has decreased in value slightly but not by very much at all.

Today, Tesla stock is down 2% to 1.91, however when looking over the 5 day period, it is down an unbelievable 34%, so perhaps Elon Musk is cashing out at a time during which the firm's stock is crashing in value over a longer period of time.

Perhaps Tesla has made its point, and now with the rental car fleets, taxi companies and lease market totally flooded with the Model 3, it is no longer considered a novelty, especially considering that the traditional car manufacturers are making arguably much better electric cars. Porsche is selling more fully electric Taycans than all of its other models, and today Volvo launches its fully electric SUV the EX90. BMW and Mercedes Benz have gone fully electric across the range, and the Audi e-Tron is universally popular.

Elon Musk is a savvy investor as much as he is a savvy innovator.

Perhaps he is pulling some capital to safety at a time during which Tesla stock is declining and he has long since made his point.

We have seen a bullish opening of the markets this week.

ETH is now trading just below its pivot level of 1203 and moving into a mildly bullish channel. The price of ETHUSD is now testing its classic resistance level of 1230 and Fibonacci resistance level of 1246 after which the path towards 1300 will get cleared.

The relative strength index is at 47 indicating a neutral market and a shift towards the correction and consolidation phase in the markets.

We can see that the price is back over the pivot point indicating a bullish scenario in the daily time frame.

The STOCHRSI is indicating an overbought market, which means that the prices are expected to decline in the short-term range.

Most of the technical indicators are giving a BUY market signal.

Some of the moving averages are giving a BUY signal and we are now looking at the levels of $1350 to $1400 in the short-term range.

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

  • Ether: bullish reversal seen above the $1072 mark
  • Short-term range appears to be mildly bullish
  • ETH continues to remain above the $1100 level

We can see a decrease of 13.76% in the total trading volume in the last 24 hrs which appears to be normal.

The Week Ahead

The price of ETH continues to remain in a bullish zone against the US dollar and bitcoin. ETHUSD is expected to move higher towards the $1300 and $1400 levels this week.

On the upside, we are now looking at the immediate targets of 1303 which is a 38.2% retracement from a 4-week low, and 1372 which is a 50% retracement from 4-week high/low.

The immediate short-term outlook for Ether has turned mildly bullish, the medium-term outlook has turned neutral, and the long-term outlook for Ether is neutral in present market conditions.

The price of ETHUSD will need to remain above the important support levels of $1188 which is the last support point.

The weekly outlook is projected at $1450 with a consolidation zone of $1350.
