Each week, we take a closer look at the markets that move, and those you may have missed!
Despite the BoE slashing its interest rate, GBP has been quite weak and a ‘scrolling down’ instrument. On the 4h chart: the pair looks like it is trying to build a floor since March 18th, but is compressed below the purple trendlines. For now, monitor 1.1530-1.1485 to the downside and 1.17 to the upside. Only once the latter is clearly broken, can we expect the 1.1950-1.20 area before trying ambitiously to see 1.21. This could take time and isn’t anticipated soon.
With the world on lockdown, how are Netflix shares reacting? Not bad, despite being 15% off its all-time high. The green line in the chart is the long term trend, with $390 being the all-time high area. This is a 1H chart, where you notice the steepest downtrend has been broken, and the gap from March 11th been filled. With $356 a strong resistance, we aim for $325 downside.
On a 30-min timeline, $21 is the level to watch as a possible double-bottom. Looks as though the steepest downtrend from Friday has been broken and may eventually be retested. To the upside: $23.50, $24.50 and $26, with $27.15 and $28.50 later.
Nasdaq is testing the rising trendline started at the end of 2015 and also its 200 SMA. We now keep an eye on how the index will react to the broad $6,500 - 6,700 area.
