With a new week comes new market opportunities. Here’s a recap of what you may have missed, as well as some highlights of the week ahead of us:

Catching you up on last week:

• Data starts to trickle in showing us the impact of the pandemic on Europe and the U.S

• Confirmed cases are rising in the U.S. while slowing down in Italy and parts of Asia

Let’s take a closer look…

Each week, we take a closer look at the markets that move, and those you may have missed!

GBPUSD

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.

Netflix

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.

OIL

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.

Nasdaq100

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.
