Technical Analysis

Coca-Cola

The published quarterly report indicates that the company’s net profit over the past 9 months has decreased by 9%. Nevertheless, earnings per share outperformed expectations: $0.55 against the forecast of $0.46.

Given the potential for a recovery in sales of Coca-Cola products, an increase in the share price is possible. We believe that the quotes will soon exceed 52.

Brent

Fundamental factors hint at the continued weakening of oil prices. Quotes may drop to 50.

USD/CAD

We keep the negative outlook for the currency pair, as the chart has formed a “head and shoulders” reversal pattern.
