Technical Analysis

Ripple

According to Chris Larsen, co-founder of Ripple Labs, the company may leave US jurisdiction as the project faced serious regulatory restrictions. Perhaps Ripple will move to the UK or Singapore in order to implement plans for closer integration with large banks.

Against this background, the cryptocurrency rate rose slightly, but it is worth noting that the downward resistance level was broken not so long ago. Perhaps the coin will rise to 0.27 in the near future.

Brent

Oil quotes in the near future may sink to 40.70 amid negative news from the US to end negotiations on new measures to support the economy. However, it will be reasonable to return to buying from 40.70 due to the passing Fibonacci level.

NZD/CAD

The currency pair may soon reach the support level of 0.86000. Traders have a great opportunity to play out a fairly long trend.
