First,
a evaluate of final week’s occasions:


EUR/USD.
As anticipated by most specialists, supported by graphical evaluation, the greenback went up final week, whereas the EUR/USD pair went down
together with the euro.
True,
it didn’t attain the
set goal
, the low of August 1, 1.1025,
having discovered the native backside on the stage of 1.1065.

The
purpose for the autumn of the European forex was within the first place, “doves” guarantees by the final director of the Financial institution of Finland and former
candidate for the ECB
Olli
Rehn.
In accordance
to the assertion of this distinguished European official, it’s already in September that the market expects a discount in the important thing charge by 0.1
(and presumably by 0.2) proportion factors (now it’s -0.4%), in addition to the resumption of the QE quantitative easing program in quantity about 50
billion euros month-to-month.

In
addition, not the perfect financial statistics from Germany and China and the sudden development in US retail gross sales performed in favor of the greenback.
The market had been anticipating this indicator to say no from 0.7% to 0.3%, however it rose to 1.0%.


GBP/USD.
Final week, analysts didn’t anticipate

any
important modifications within the British pound, so their forecast was categorized as impartial. As for technical evaluation, 25% of the oscillators on
H4 and D1 gave indicators concerning the overselling of the pair, which, as observe reveals, is a robust sign for a development reversal and upcoming
correction. This was what occurred: having rebounded from the extent of 1.2015, the pair went north,

fixing
the week’s excessive at 1.2175 on Friday. The ultimate

five-day
chord sounded within the 1.2140 zone, which might be referred to as the Pivot Level of the primary week of August; 


USD/JPY.
A 3rd of analysts, supported by 85% of the oscillators and 100% of the development indicators on H4 and D1, have been certain that the Japanese
forex would proceed to play the position of a quiet refuge from forex storms, and subsequently the pair would proceed to fall to the low of
January 3, 2019. on the stage of 105.00.
That
was what occurred
,
and it was already on Monday, August 12, that the pair approached this mark.

One other
third of the specialists and graphical evaluation on D1 had voted for the development to show up and carry the pair to the peak of 107.00, which it reached
the following day, on Tuesday, August 13.

The
ending of the week glad the remaining third of specialists, who had taken a impartial place. In the event you have a look at the graph of the final two
weeks, you may see that the pair moved to the facet channel 105.00–107.00 and accomplished the working session

nearer
to its middle, at 106.35.
Thus,
all three eventualities might be thought of fulfilled – bearish, bullish and impartial;


Cryptocurrencies.
Crypto fans, such

as
Fundstrat analyst Tom Lee or Morgan Creek co-founder Anthony Pompliano, proceed to try to lift Bitcoin standing, claiming it has
already turn out to be a protected haven asset, together with gold or the Japanese yen.

And
right here it’s questionable, what sort of refuge it’s, if solely from August 08 to 15 this digital forex misplaced greater than 20% of its worth,
collapsing from $12,00Zero to $9,500?

With
such frenzied volatility, Bitcoin shouldn’t be a protected haven, however a great instrument for high-risk

hypothesis.
Properly and a refuge as effectively, however not from fluctuations

in
conventional monetary markets, however from … its youthful colleagues within the digital market, altcoins, the curiosity during which is consistently
falling.

If
you have a look at the dynamics of the altcoin market, ranging from the height on June 26, its capitalization fell from $124 to $79 billion, that’s,
greater than 36%.
Losses
of bitcoin
are
twice decrease :18% (drop from $229 to $187 billion).

Accordingly,
buyers
are progressively shedding curiosity even in high cash similar to

Ethereum
(ETH), Ripple (XRP) and Litecoin (LTC), switching their consideration to

bitcoin
(BTC), whose market share has already exceeded 70%.

As
for the forecast for the approaching week, summarizing the opinions of a variety of analysts, in addition to forecasts made on the premise of quite a lot of
strategies of technical and graphical evaluation, we will say the next:


EUR/USD
.
On one European scale, there’s a slowdown within the financial development of the EU’s most essential associate – China, weak financial efficiency in
Germany, issues of Italy and Brexit. On the opposite, the American one, macro statistics

from the USA
are pleasing to the attention
and the Fed’s
management claims that the American economic system is on a strong basis and that it doesn’t concern any commerce wars.

It will appear that the reply to the query
on which facet the benefit needs to be is obvious: on the facet of the greenback. That’s precisely what 65% of specialists imagine, supported by nearly 100%
of oscillators and development indicators on H4 and

D1.
The rapid objective is help within the zone
1.1000–1.1025, after breaking by which there can be solely 1000 factors to 1: 1 parity.
At
the present charge of decline,
it
could take a bit over a 12 months to
overcome this distance. (Recall
that the pair was already dropping to the extent of 1.0350 in December 2016).

Nonetheless,
in the event you think about different scales, all the things turns into not so apparent. So, on one, European, scale there’s the

lower
within the euro rate of interest

introduced by Olli
Rehn
for September and the resuscitation of the QE program. And on the US scale – the expectation of a recession within the US economic system, Donald Trump’s
discontent with the actions of the Fed and, consequently, a attainable discount within the greenback charge by the tip of 2019 from 2.25% to 1.85%.

If
the pinnacle of the
Federal
Reserve Jerome Powell succumbs to stress from the US president, a development reversal upward and the pair’s rise to marks within the zone
1.1300-1.1400 should not excluded.

And
if within the close to future it’s 35% of analysts who don’t exclude such a possibility, within the medium time period their quantity will increase to 55%.

In accordance
to specialists, the outcomes of the Fed assembly on Wednesday, August 21 and the annual financial symposium in Jackson Gap, which may also be held
subsequent week, ought to give some readability concerning the US monetary coverage. As well as, the report on the ECB assembly on financial coverage, which can
be launched on Thursday, August 22, is of nice curiosity;  


GBP/USD.
A
fairly attention-grabbing state of affairs has developed within the UK. On the one hand, manufacturing is declining, falling by 0.6% in comparison with final 12 months. On the
different hand, as a substitute of the retail gross sales drop of 0.3% anticipated in July, their development by 0.2% was famous. This may occasionally point out that, watching the
fall of the pound and fearing the implications of Brexit, the nation’s residents desire procuring fairly than monetary financial savings.

It
shouldn’t be clear how lengthy this case will final.

We
want to attend for the steps of the brand new Prime Minister Boris Johnson

and
the response of the British Parliament to them.

Till
this occurs, the respite that the pair has taken in its fall will, in accordance with the bulk (65%) of specialists, proceed, and the pair will
keep within the facet channel 1.2000–1.2200.

The
closest help stage is 1.2050, resistance is 1.2175.

As
for the graphic evaluation, each on H4 and D1, after a number of days of motion within the facet hall, it predicts the pair will fall to the October
2016 low within the zone 1.1900–1.1940;


USD/JPY.
The
choice of the US authorities to postpone the introduction of further

duties
on Chinese language imports didn’t assist the greenback a lot: buyers nonetheless strongly doubt the peaceable finish of the US-Chinese language commerce conflict. So, the yen will
proceed to play the position of a quiet monetary haven. The expectation of a coming recession within the US economic system and

decrease
curiosity
charges by the US Federal Reserve additionally performs in opposition to the greenback. Added to it is a drop in yields on 10-year US bonds, which have already fallen
to 1.6%. Furthermore, the yield unfold of those securities has fallen under zero. Which, in idea, ought to result in additional strengthening of the
Japanese forex and a lower within the pair. Nonetheless, specialists supported by graphical evaluation on H4 are inclined to imagine that the pair
will keep within the facet channel 105.00–107.00 for not less than one other week. However sooner or later, most of them (60%) anticipate not a fall, however, on the
opposite, that the greenback will strengthen, and the pair will rise to the zone of 108.50-109.00. Graphical evaluation on D1 agrees with this
forecast;


Cryptocurrencies.
Giving long-term forecasts is a blessing. And the extra distant the forecast, the higher. If it doesn’t come true, it is
okay: everybody
forgot
about it a very long time in the past.
And if the
forecast is right, then you may remind about your self.

For
instance, Tim Draper, the investor and head of Draper Associates, has predicted that Bitcoin would hit $250,000, presumably on the finish of 2022,
or possibly
at
the start of 2023. Properly, solely three years are left to attend.

If
we speak about extra close to forecasts, well-known cryptocurrency analyst Nicholas Merten is assured that Bitcoin will attain the $15,00Zero mark in a
few weeks. It’s attainable that he’s proper, and a development reversal is simply across the nook, however to date there aren’t any clear indicators to purchase, and the
Bitcoin Concern & Greed Index remains to be on the “Concern” mark.
