BTC and XRP – Correction developing but for how long?
Daily Market Analysis By FXOpen in Fundamental_btc

BTC/USD

The price of Bitcoin has continued increasing from last week and came to $24,310 at its highest points yesterday from which it decreased by 10.11% at first, but is now making a recovery and is currently sitting at $23,478 level. This minor pullback we have seen yesterday could have been the beginning of the higher degree descending move as the prior impulse to the upside ended but since the price is starting to increase again we are yet to see.
Daily Market Analysis By FXOpen in Fundamental_btcusd-1h-3

On the hourly chart, you can see that it came up in a five-wave manner from the 11th of December when it was sitting at $17,500 at its lowest point which was a higher low compared to the one made on the 26th of November.

This higher lower could have been the ending point of the corrective 4th wave from the higher degree in which case the price has formed now the 5th wave. In that case, we are now to see the start of the descending move, but another possibility would be that this higher low on the 11th was the 2nd sub-wave of the new higher degree impulse. If the second is true, then the five-wave impulse from the 11th is the 3rd wave which means that the current corrective structure is the 4th wave and that the price is going to continue increasing again after.

Now as the price is making a recovery we are going to see the validation of either scenario from its behavior. If it manages to exceed yesterday’s high it would indicate that another increase is going to the develop before the starting higher degree decline, but if finds resistance here and starts decreasing again it would mean that the increase ended.

XRP/USD

The price of Ripple has been in a decline from the 17th of December when it was sitting at $0.66413 and fell to $0.4509 today, which is a decrease of 32.1% but has since started making a minor recovery and is currently sitting at $0.4943.
Daily Market Analysis By FXOpen in Fundamental_xrpusd-1h-3

Looking at the hourly chart, we can see that the price made an impulsive rise after the completion of the descending triangle like expected and has broken out above the prior lower high. This was a bullish sign but however, it made it back to the same levels from which it started its upward trajectory.

This could indicate that the correction is still in place with the previous impulsive rise being the second wave X from the prolonged WXYXZ complex correction. If this is true then the price is now going to make another lower low for the development of the Z wave.

Another possibility could be that this is another starting five-wave impulse with the last decline being its 2nd sub-wave.

EUR/USD and USD/JPY Approaching Next Crucial Breakout
Daily Market Analysis By FXOpen in Fundamental_Euro-EURUSD

EUR/USD corrected lower after it struggled to clear the 1.2250 resistance level. USD/JPY is trading above 103.20 and it is likely setting up for the next major move.

Important Takeaways for EUR/USD and USD/JPY

  • The Euro seems to be facing a strong resistance near 1.2250 and 1.2260.
  • There is a major bullish trend line forming with support near 1.2160 on the hourly chart of EUR/USD.
  • USD/JPY is rising steadily and it is well above the 103.20 support level.
  • There is a key contracting triangle forming with support near 103.45 on the hourly chart.

EUR/USD Technical Analysis

In the past few days, there were swing moves in the Euro above 1.2200 against the US Dollar. The EUR/USD pair made a couple of attempt to gain strength above 1.2250 and 1.2260, but it failed.

The recent swing high was formed near 1.2256 on FXOpen before the price started a fresh decline. There was a break below the 1.2200 support level and the 50 hourly simple moving average. The pair even broke the 1.2180 support, but it stayed above the 1.2150 zone.
Daily Market Analysis By FXOpen in Fundamental_eurusd-chart-3

A low is formed near 1.2152 and the pair is currently rising. It broke the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the 1.2256 high to 1.2152 low.

On the upside, the first major resistance is near the 1.2200 level and the 50 hourly simple moving average. The 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the 1.2256 high to 1.2152 low is also near 1.2205.

A clear break above the 1.2200 resistance zone could lead the pair towards the main 1.2230 level and a connecting bearish trend line. Any more upsides might increase the chances of a break above 1.2260.

Conversely, the pair could start a fresh decline below the 1.2165 support. The main support is near the 1.2150 zone, and a major bullish trend line forming with support near 1.2160 on the hourly chart of EUR/USD. A break below the trend line support could lead the pair towards the 1.2100 level.

USD/JPY Technical Analysis

The US Dollar started a fresh increase from the 103.00 support zone against the Japanese Yen. The USD/JPY pair broke the 103.20 zone to move into a positive zone.

The pair even broke the 103.50 level and the 50 hourly simple moving average. The recent high was formed near 103.73 before the pair started a downside correction.
Daily Market Analysis By FXOpen in Fundamental_usdjpy-chart-1

There was a break below the 103.55 level. The pair also declined below the 50% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the 103.31 low to 103.73 high. It is now trading near a major support at 103.45. There is also a key contracting triangle forming with support near 103.45 on the hourly chart.

If there is a downside break below the trend line, there is a risk of a larger decline towards the 103.20 and 103.00 levels.

On the upside, the first major resistance is near the 103.65 level. A clear break above the 103.65 zone is needed to start a steady rise towards the 104.00 and 104.20 levels.

Any more gains could lead the USD/JPY pair towards the 104.50 level, where the bulls are likely to face a strong resistance in the near term.

Daily Market Analysis By FXOpen in Fundamental_GBPUSD-Sterling-1

GBP/USD started a strong increase above the 1.3500 resistance zone. GBP/JPY also gained traction and it gained pace above the 140.00 resistance zone to move into a positive zone.

Important Takeaways for GBP/USD and GBP/JPY

  • The British Pound climbed higher above the 1.3500 and 1.3550 resistance levels.
  • There is a key bullish trend line forming with support near 1.3555 on the hourly chart of GBP/USD.
  • GBP/JPY also climbed higher steadily above the 139.50 and 140.00 resistance levels.
  • There is a major bullish trend line forming with support near 140.30 on the hourly chart.

GBP/USD Technical Analysis

This past week, the British Pound saw a strong increase from the 1.3300 support zone against the US Dollar. The GBP/USD pair broke the 1.3500 resistance zone to move further into a positive zone.

The upward move was such that the pair even broke the 1.3550 resistance and settled above the 50 hourly simple moving average. It traded as high as 1.3618 on FXOpen and it is currently consolidating gains.
Daily Market Analysis By FXOpen in Fundamental_gbpjpy-chart-1

It corrected lower towards 1.3520 and traded as low as 1.3522. Recently, there was a minor increase above the 1.3540 level. The pair climbed above the 1.3550 level, and tested the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the 1.3618 high to 1.3522 low.

The first major resistance is near the 1.3580 level. It is close to the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the 1.3618 high to 1.3522 low.

On the upside, a clear break above the 1.3600 resistance level is needed for more upsides. The next major resistance is near the 1.3650 level, above which the pair could rise towards the 1.3680 and 1.3700 levels.

On the downside, there is a key bullish trend line forming with support near 1.3555 on the hourly chart of GBP/USD. If there is a downside break below the trend line support, the pair could continue to move down towards the 1.3500 support level in the near term.

GBP/JPY Technical Analysis

The British Pound also climbed nicely from the 137.50 support level against the Japanese Yen. The GBP/JPY pair climbed above the 138.50 level to start a steady increase.

It gained pace above the 139.20 resistance and settled above the 50 hourly simple moving average. It even spiked above the 141.00 level and traded as high as 141.21 before correcting lower. There was a break below the 140.50 support level.
Daily Market Analysis By FXOpen in Fundamental_gbpusd-chart-3

However, the pair remained stable above 140.00 and a low is formed near 140.07. The pair is currently rising and trading above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the 141.21 high to 140.07 low.

The pair is now facing hurdles near the 140.50 and 140.60 levels. The 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the 141.21 high to 140.07 low is also near the 140.60 zone.

A clear break above the 140.60 resistance could open the doors for a fresh increase. In the stated case, the pair could rise above the 141.00 and 141.20 resistance levels.

On the downside, there is a major bullish trend line forming with support near 140.30 on the hourly chart. If there is a downside break below the trend line support, GBP/JPY could retest the 138.50 support level.

Daily Market Analysis By FXOpen in Fundamental_eurusd-chart-4

An initial support on the downside is near the 1.2280 level. It is close to the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent increase from the 1.2236 swing low to 1.2294 high.

The first major support is near the 1.2270 level. The next support is near the 1.2265 level or the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent increase from the 1.2236 swing low to 1.2294 high. There is also a key bullish trend line forming with support near 1.2235 on the hourly chart of EUR/USD.

Any more losses could lead the pair towards the 1.2220 level in the near term. On the upside, the 1.2300 zone is likely to act as a major resistance. A clear break above the 1.2300 zone could open the doors for a steady increase in the coming days towards 1.2340 or 1.2350.

EUR/JPY Technical Analysis

The Euro also followed a bullish path above 126.00 against the Japanese Yen. The EUR/JPY pair broke the main 126.65 resistance level to move into a positive zone.

The pair traded as high as 127.23 before correcting lower. It traded below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent increase from the 126.04 swing low to 127.23 high.

There is a currently a contracting triangle forming with resistance near 127.00 zone. A clear break above the 127.00 and 127.10 levels could open the doors for a sharp increase. The next major resistance for the bulls could be near the 127.50 level.

Conversely, there could be a downside break below the triangle support at 126.85. The next key support is near the 126.65 level (the breakout zone). It is close to the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent increase from the 126.04 swing low to 127.23 high.

If the pair breaks the 126.65 support zone and the 50 SMA, there are chances of a push down towards the 126.20 support zone. The next major support sits near the 126.00 zone.

However, the pair is finding a strong support near the 0.7700 zone. There is also a major bullish trend line forming with support near 0.7695 on the hourly chart of AUD/USD. The 50 hourly simple moving average is also following the trend line at 0.7690.

If there is a downside break below the trend line support, there is a risk of more losses towards the 0.7140 and 0.7120 support levels.

Conversely, the pair could start a fresh increase above the 0.7220 and 0.7225 resistance levels. In the stated case, NZD/USD might even test the 0.7300 level in the coming days.

Bitcoin Rollercoaster Price Action Continues
Daily Market Analysis By FXOpen in Fundamental_btc

Bitcoin held the headlines into the end of the trading year. It rose from $10,000 in October to $35,000 in late December, tripling in value in less than two months.

Much of the advance, though, came in low liquidity and when “no one was looking”. Just like in 2017 when Bitcoin reached close to $20k, the advance in late 2020 happened during the thin trading environment caused by the end of year holidays.

What Causes Bitcoin Bullishness?

Recently, more and more institutional investors turn to Bitcoin. Viewed as a safe-haven asset and a store of value that competes with gold, the digital alternative investment opportunity offered by Bitcoin appeals to more and more people.

Scarcity is one attribute that many investors value. As the number of Bitcoins is limited, the scarcity makes it possible for the price of it to advance so fast and so aggressive.

But the same is valid in downturns. As 2021 just started, Bitcoin is down 15% from the highs, trading below $29k at the time of writing this article after it was as high as $35k in late December. Anyone happy with such drawdowns should not have any problem in owning Bitcoin – though few investors are willing to take such an asset into a professional portfolio.

Risks for Bitcoin

The risks for Bitcoin moving into 2021 trading come from regulation. We saw at the end of last year’s trading that Ripple suffered from the SEC in the United States initiating a lawsuit against its founders, causing the price of Ripple to collapse instantly. If the allegations of illegally selling securities are extended to other crypto assets, the risk is that Bitcoin will suffer from collateral damage too.

Already at this point, many public companies and institutional investors announced huge investments in Bitcoin. We talk about billions, as MicroStrategy is just an example of a company that invested most of its treasury in Bitcoin.

Should the price of Bitcoin continue to retrace from the highs, some weak hands may be forced to liquidity. This may also be exacerbated by a possible reversal in the USD. If that happens, then Bitcoin has more room to correct.

BTC and XRP – Consolidation developing but for how long?
Daily Market Analysis By FXOpen in Fundamental_btc

BTC/USD

The price of Bitcoin has been in a decline since Sunday when it reached $34,716 at its highest point. We have seen a downfall to $30,367 but the price spiked further to $27,774 at its lowest wick before snapping back above the 0 Fib level. Currently, it is being consolidated above it and is moving sideways, sitting at $31,901 and is in an upward trajectory.
Daily Market Analysis By FXOpen in Fundamental_btcusd-1h

Looking at the hourly chart, we can see that the price completed another five-wave impulse to the upside that started on the 21st of December. This rise was most likely the ending wave of the higher degree count which is why now we are seeing some consolidation. The price action may continue to move sideways for some time now but if the 5th wave of a higher degree is in, then the price is now likely to decline further in a corrective manner.

From Sunday’s high, we have seen a three-wave decrease which could have been a local correction which would mean that another minor higher high could come, but in that case, the current move should be the developing lower degree impulse which doesn’t look like one. This is why it is more likely that now we are seeing a corrective increase before further impulsive moves to the downside.

XRP/USD

The price of Ripple has been in a recovery attempt since the 29th of December when it fell to the $0.18 area, but it hasn’t moved that much to the upside, only reaching $0.2588 on yesterday’s high. Since then another move to the downside was made to around $0.225 level, slightly above which it is currently being traded.
Daily Market Analysis By FXOpen in Fundamental_xrpusd-1h

On the hourly chart, you can see that the price of Ripple is moving around its significant horizontal support zone as its attempting to establish support. This lookout for support is being made after a sharp and impulsive decline ended which was the Z wave from the complex correction count.

This is why now another wave to the upside is to start, but it is still uncertain whether or not it’s going to be an impulsive move or another corrective increase before a further decline. Considering the amount of decrease we have seen prior it is more likely that the price is now going to make a recovery but the bearish sentiment is still holding it behind the general market. This is why the price now has to establish a new bottom, potentially revisiting the lower range of the support zone in order to activate buying and chasing of the price that could cause a recovery.

GBP/USD and EUR/GBP: British Pound Could Correct Lower
Daily Market Analysis By FXOpen in Fundamental_GBPUSD-Cable-Sterling

GBP/USD extended its rise towards 1.3700 before starting a downside correction. EUR/GBP is showing positive signs and it could surge if it breaks the 0.9050 resistance.

Important Takeaways for GBP/USD and EUR/GBP

  • The British Pound traded towards the 1.3700 zone, where it faced a strong selling interest.
  • There is a key bullish trend line forming with support near 1.3580 on the hourly chart of GBP/USD.
  • EUR/GBP started a fresh increase and it broke the 0.9000 resistance zone.
  • There is a major bearish trend line in place with resistance near 0.9045 on the hourly chart.

GBP/USD Technical Analysis

In the past few days, there was a steady increase in the British Pound above the 1.3500 resistance zone against the US Dollar. The GBP/USD pair broke the 1.3600 zone to continue higher.

The pair gained momentum above 1.3620 and it even spiked above the 1.3700 resistance. A new multi-month high was formed near 1.3703 on FXOpen before the pair started a downside correction. It traded below the 1.3650 support level and the 50 hourly simple moving average.
Daily Market Analysis By FXOpen in Fundamental_gbpusd-chart

There was a break below a key rising channel with support near 1.3680 on the hourly chart of GBP/USD. It opened the doors for more losses and the pair dived below 1.3600. It traded as low as 1.3540 and it is currently correcting higher.

There was a break above the 50% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the 1.3703 high to 1.3540 low. There is also a key bullish trend line forming with support near 1.3580 on the same chart.

On the upside, the pair is facing a strong resistance near the 1.3620 level, the 50 hourly simple moving average, and the 1.3650 zone. A clear break above the 1.3650 zone is needed for a fresh move towards 1.3700 or even higher.

Conversely, the pair could break the trend line support and continue lower below 1.3580. The next major support is at 1.3540, below which the pair could test the 1.3500 support.

EUR/GBP Technical Analysis

The Euro traded as low as 0.8931 before it started a fresh increase against the British Pound. The EUR/GBP pair broke the 0.8980 and 0.9000 resistance levels to move into a positive zone.

The pair gained pace above 0.9000 and it even settled above the 50 hourly simple moving average. There was a break above the 50% Fib retracement level of the key downward move from the 0.9092 swing high to 0.8931 low.
Daily Market Analysis By FXOpen in Fundamental_eurgbp-chart

The pair even tested the 0.9050 resistance zone, and the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the key downward move from the 0.9092 swing high to 0.8931 low.

On the upside, there is a major bearish trend line in place with resistance near 0.9045 on the hourly chart. The main resistance is near the 0.9050 level. A clear break above the trend line resistance may possibly increase the chances of a strong rise towards the 0.9100 level.

Conversely, the pair could start a fresh decline. The main support is forming near the 0.9000 area and the 50 hourly SMA. If there is a downside break below the 0.9010 and 0.9000 support levels, the pair could continue to move down towards the 0.8950 level in the near term.

LTC and EOS – Establishing support before new highs
Daily Market Analysis By FXOpen in Fundamental_ltc-1

LTC/USD

The price of Litecoin has been increasing since last week and came up from $124.2 at its lowest point on Saturday to $170 at its highest on Monday. This week has started with a pullback to $147.2 but the price is back on the same levels as on Monday.
Daily Market Analysis By FXOpen in Fundamental_ltcusd-1h

Looking at the hourly chart, you can see that the price made an interaction with the horizontal resistance found at the $170 level and fell back to its ascending trendline. As it found support there again it is currently making another breakout attempt.

If the price makes a higher high and continued moving past the $170 level it would serve as an early indication that the price is going to continue its bullish trajectory past the upper ascending trendline as well.

But if it fails to do so we might be seeing the completion of the higher degree ending diagonal which formed on the 24th of December. If this is the case then the currently seeing breakout attempt might end as a slightly higher high just making an interaction with the upper ascending trendline before we see a downturn.

However, currently, there are more signs of bullishness than bearishness which is why the uptrend continuation looks more likely.

EOS/USD

From the start of January when the price of EOS was sitting at $2.55 we have seen an increase of 35.68% measured to its highest point at $3.4617 made yesterday. Since then the price made a minor pullback to $3.11 but is now back above $3.315 again.
Daily Market Analysis By FXOpen in Fundamental_eosusd-1h

On the hourly chart, you can see that the price action made a cup and handle formation since the 20th of December and has now made a higher high compared to the one then. We are now seeing the formation of the handle pattern which is set to consolidate the price and establish support before it can move to the upside again.

From the start of the year, the price has moved parabolically to the upside so its upward trajectory would be expected to continue, but not before it makes a revisiting to the zone below $3.27. It could continue to its more significant horizontal zone at around $2.9 but that doesn’t look as likely considering the bullish momentum seen. More likely we are to see another spike to the downside like we have from yesterday’s high potentially coming to the $3 mark which is both a psychological level and the local horizontal support.

After this, a further upside would be expected for the price of EOS in the same impulsive manner as it did from the start of the new year. The next significant price point would be at $3.84 where the price made the previous high on November 25th.

Gold Price Trims Gains While Oil Price Turns Bullish Above $50
Daily Market Analysis By FXOpen in Fundamental_Gold-price-oil-price

Gold price started a downside correction after surging towards $1,960. Conversely, crude oil price is following a strong bullish path and it settled above $50.00.

Important Takeaways for Gold and Oil
  • Gold price started a fresh increase towards $1,950-$1,960 and recently corrected lower against the US Dollar.
  • There was a break below a major bullish trend line with support near $1,920 on the hourly chart of gold.
  • Crude oil price surged above the $48.00 resistance and it even broke the $50.00 barrier.
  • There is a key rising channel forming with support near $50.60 on the hourly chart of XTI/USD.

Gold Price Technical Analysis

Gold price started a fresh increase above the $1,910 resistance level against the US Dollar. The price broke the $1,925 and $1,950 resistance levels to move into a positive zone.

The price even traded close to the $1,960 before it faced sellers. A swing high was formed near $1,959 on FXOpen before the price started a downside correction. There was a sharp decline below the $1,950 and $1,940 levels.
Daily Market Analysis By FXOpen in Fundamental_gold-price-chart

During the decline, there was a break below a major bullish trend line with support near $1,920 on the hourly chart of gold. The price traded below the 50% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $1,872 swing low to $1,959 high.

It even settled below the $1,920 level and the 50 hourly simple moving average. It seems like the price is approaching the $1,905 and $1,900 support levels. The 61.8% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the $1,872 swing low to $1,959 high might also provide support.

Any more losses could lead the price towards the $1,880 support level. Conversely, the price could attempt a fresh increase above the $1,915 and $1,920 resistance levels.

A successful close above the $1,920 and the 50 hourly simple moving average could open the doors for a decent increase in the coming sessions. The next major resistance is near the $1,950 level.

Oil Price Technical Analysis

Crude oil price started a steady rise after it broke the key $48.00 resistance zone against the US Dollar. The price broke many hurdles near $50.00 to move further into a positive zone.

The price even broke the $51.00 level and settled above the 50 hourly simple moving average. It traded to a new multi-month high near $51.26 before starting a downside correction. It declined towards $50.50 level and it is currently rising.
Daily Market Analysis By FXOpen in Fundamental_oil-price-chart

There was a break above the $50.80 resistance. The price recovered above the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $51.26 high to $50.43 low.

It is now trading above the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the $51.26 high to $50.43 low. Therefore, there are high chances of a break above the $51.20 and $51.50 resistance levels in the coming sessions.

On the downside, an initial support is near the $50.80 level. There is also a key rising channel forming with support near $50.60 on the hourly chart of XTI/USD.

If there is a downside break below the channel support trend line, the price could decline towards the $50.00 support level. The next major support sits near the $49.55 level.

GBP/USD Could Decline Further, USD/CAD Is Eyeing Upside Break
Daily Market Analysis By FXOpen in Fundamental_gbpusd

GBP/USD started a fresh decline after it failed to clear the 1.3700 resistance. USD/CAD is rising and it is currently eyeing an upside break above 1.2750.

Important Takeaways for GBP/USD and USD/CAD

  • The British Pound started a major downside correction from well above 1.3650.
  • There is a major bearish trend line forming with resistance near 1.3610 on the hourly chart of GBP/USD.
  • USD/CAD started a fresh increase after forming a support base near the 1.2660 level.
  • There was a break above a key bearish trend line with resistance at 1.2700 on the hourly chart.

GBP/USD Technical Analysis

After a decent increase, the British Pound faced resistance near 1.3680-1.3700 against the US Dollar. As a result, the GBP/USD pair started a fresh decline and broke a couple of important supports near 1.3650.

The pair gained bearish momentum below the 1.3600 level and the 50 hourly simple moving average. It even broke a major support zone at 1.3540 to move into a bearish zone. It traded as low as 1.3496 on FXOpen, and the pair is currently consolidating losses.
Daily Market Analysis By FXOpen in Fundamental_gbpusd-chart-1

An initial resistance on the upside is near the 1.3525 level. It is close to the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the 1.3635 high to 1.3496 low.

The first major resistance is near the 1.3540 level (the recent breakdown zone). The next resistance is near the 1.3565 zone and the 50 hourly simple moving average. It is also close to the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline from the 1.3635 high to 1.3496 low.

Finally, there is a major bearish trend line forming with resistance near 1.3610 on the hourly chart of GBP/USD. Clearly, the pair is likely to face many hurdles if it starts an upside correction from the recent low of 1.3496.

On the downside, the first key support is near the 1.2500 area. The next major support is near the 1.3470 level, below which there is a risk of a sharp decline.

USD/CAD Technical Analysis

The US Dollar traded as low as 1.3629 before starting a decent upward move against the Canadian Dollar. The USD/CAD pair broke the 1.3650 and 1.3665 resistance levels to move into a short-term bullish zone.

The pair gained pace above the 1.3700 level and the 50 hourly simple moving average. Moreover, there was a break above a key bearish trend line with resistance at 1.2700 on the hourly chart.
Daily Market Analysis By FXOpen in Fundamental_usdcad-chart

The pair even broke 1.2720, and climbed above the 50% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the 1.2797 high to 1.2629 swing low. It is now attempting an upside break above another bearish trend line with resistance at 1.2750 on the same chart.

The next key resistance is near the 1.2760 level. It is close to the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the 1.2797 high to 1.2629 swing low.

A clear break above the 1.2750 and 1.2760 resistance levels may possibly increase the chances of a strong upward move in the coming sessions. The next key resistance sits at 1.2800.

Conversely, USD/CAD might start another decline if it fails near 1.2750. An initial support is near the 1.2700 level and the 50 hourly SMA. The main support seems to be forming near 1.2665.

The USD Reverses Course as the NFP Misses Expectations
Daily Market Analysis By FXOpen in Fundamental_usd

Last week brought some troubling events in the United States, as protesters took the Capital by assault. Lives were lost, and the nation faces an identity crisis.

Shortly after the order was restored, President Trump recognized President-elect Biden’s victory and ensured people that there would be a peaceful transition of power on the 20th of the month when the new administration takes charge.

But it was too little too late. In the meantime, Twitter suspended the President’s account, and America is on a race to identify each and every one of the protesters.

As such, the economic data paled in the face of the political events. However, the USD did move, as it seems that it reversed course, easing from the highs.

What Did the NFP Show?

The NFP report released last Friday showed the data for the month of December 2020. The U.S. economy lost 140k jobs, much worse than the expectations of adding 60k.

Unsurprisingly, the leisure and hospitality sectors were responsible for most of the job losses, as the pandemic continues to take its toll. However, the November numbers were revised higher, and the unemployment rate remained stable, somehow diminishing the impact of the December report.

ISM Manufacturing Above 60

One of the most striking pieces of economic data released last week was the ISM Manufacturing. It climbed above 60, and most of the time, when it did so in the past, the dollar strengthened in the following one hundred days.

The thing is that all investment houses predict a lower dollar in 2021. Whenever such a consensus exists, the danger is that exactly the opposite happens.

So far, the dollar reflected the risk-on environment, as it moved hand in hand with the U.S. equities. As the new administration prepares to run America, the dollar may be in the grasp of a sharp reversal.

The EURUSD is already down two big figures from the highs, and AUDUSD and GBPUSD correct as well. If the dollar’s strength continues, the world risks being caught on the wrong side of the market, as most traders are positioned for a weak dollar.

BTC and XRP – Has the correction ended?
Daily Market Analysis By FXOpen in Fundamental_btcxrp

BTC/USD

From yesterday’s low at $30,340 the price of Bitcoin has increased by 20.71% as it came to $36,743 at its highest point today. Since then it has made a minor retracement and is currently sitting at around $35,340 and is in a downward trajectory.
Daily Market Analysis By FXOpen in Fundamental_btcusd-1h-1

Looking at the hourly chart, you can see that the price increase that ended on Friday was the ending wave from the higher degree count. This is why now we are seeing the development of the five-wave descending move. As it might have ended the price would now be expected to recover but as this is most likely the beginning of the descending move from the downside we are to see the downtrend continuation after the recovery has been made.

If we are seeing the development of the ABC correction the price of Bitcoin could fall back to the $23,500 range before the correction ends. There could be a possibility that this would be a five-wave impulse rather than the ABC correction in which case the decrease could continue below $23,500.

In the short-term, we are expecting that the price establishes support around the $30,000 area before a recovery to $37,550 which would be the 0.618 Fib level.

XRP/USD

The price of Ripple has also been increasing and came up from $0.2575 at its lowest point yesterday to $0.308 at its highest today which was an increase of around 20%, but since today’s high made a pullback to the $0.29 area where is currently being traded.
Daily Market Analysis By FXOpen in Fundamental_xrpusd-1h-1

On the hourly chart, we can see that this increase was the formation of the first five-wave impulse to the upside after a sharp and steep decline from $0.36 which is a 26.7% decrease measured to yesterday’s low.  This decrease made from Sunday was made after the price broke out from the forming triangle in which it was consolidating and was retesting its horizontal resistance level on which the price came up at its prior high.

The downfall seen could be the corrective wave to the downside after which now we are seeing the next impulse to the upside forming. As a lower degree five-wave count has been completed it will now be seen if this is the start of the higher degree wave 5 or the corrective ABC before further downside movement. The price is now likely to make another five-wave move in either way to the upside from whose momentum we are to evaluate either possibilities.

Daily Market Analysis By FXOpen in Fundamental_eurusd-chart

It broke the 1.2180 resistance level and the 50 hourly simple moving average. There was a break above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the 1.2344 high to 1.2133 low.

The 50% Fib retracement level of the downward move from the 1.2344 high to 1.2133 low is also near 1.2240 level. Therefore, a break above 1.2240 could accelerate upsides towards 1.2300.

If not, the pair could start a fresh decline from 1.2240. An initial support is near the 1.2185 level. The next major support is near the 1.2170 level. Any more losses could lead the pair towards the 1.2100 zone.

USD/CHF Technical Analysis

Daily Market Analysis By FXOpen in Fundamental_usdchf-chart

There was also a break below a key bullish trend line with support near 0.8888 on the hourly chart. The pair broke the 50% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the 0.8822 swing low to 0.8920 high.

The pair could continue to move down towards the 0.8845 support. It is close to the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the upward move from the 0.8822 swing low to 0.8920 high. Any more losses might call for a test of the 0.8820 support.

On the upside, an initial resistance is near the 0.8870 level. The main resistance is forming near the 0.8890 level and the 50 hourly simple moving average.

A close above the 0.8880 and 0.8890 levels could open the doors for another steady increase above 0.8900 in the near term.

The next major support is near the 140.60 level, below which the pair could dive towards the 140.00 support zone in the coming sessions. On the upside, the previous support near 141.30 might act as a resistance.
