Market analysis and insights on Forex & Commodities!

Yesterday, we saw an incredible spike in Bitcoin of close to $2500, which is 40+% move.

Even though price has corrected slightly, it is currently still up by about 30% from its recent lows.

Although no one really knows the reason for such a sudden move, many people have attributed it to remarks by the Chinese President, Xi Jinping, who said the country needs to “seize the opportunity” afforded by blockchain technology.

Speaking as part of the 18th collective study of the Political Bureau of the Central Committee on Thursday in Beijing,  he said that blockchain technology has a wide array of applications within China, listing topics ranging from financing businesses to mass transit and poverty alleviation.

Although he was talking about Blockchain technology rather than cryptocurrencies, traders seem to have felt that it would still have a positive effect, at least based on what the market is reflecting.

For a technical perspective, the chart is starting to look more bullish medium/long-term, with the breakout of the falling wedge pattern.

After months of consolidation, Bitcoin has broken down from its triangle consolidation price pattern.

The interesting thing is that if you look carefully you will see both a symmetrical triangle (neutral) and a descending triangle (bearish), so overall the odds of it breaking down was higher than the odds of it breaking up.

The next support level is around the $6800-$7000 level, so we might see a small pullback, followed by more bearish movement downwards.

Yesterday, oil prices spiked after crude oil facilities located in Saudi Arabia was attacked by terrorists, shutting down up to 5% of global crude oil output.

This was a large 10-20% move in prices, and was an easy trade to ride on the trend and momentum.

 

There were 3 entry opportunities, 2 of which were flagged out in our “Daily Trading Signals”.

 

If you are inside our Free Telegram Channel, you would have seen that Crude Oil (WTIUSD) is currently on a weak bull trend, which means that we should be looking for opportunities to go long and ride on the uptrend.
