Technical Analysis

Alibaba

The Ant Group, a subsidiary of Alibaba fintech, is expected to raise at least $34 billion in its initial public offering on the Shanghai and Hong Kong exchanges. The Ant Group is well positioned to break the fundraising record previously set by Saudi Aramco.

However, Alibaba shares are now looking overbought. This is evidenced by the bearish divergence detected on the weekly timeframe of the chart.

NZD/CHF

The asset chart has formed an inverted head and shoulders pattern. We expect the uptrend to continue.

NZD/USD

A triple bottom reversal pattern indicates the potential for strengthening of the New Zealand dollar.
