Technical Analysis

Baidu

Baidu has recently had a rather rough time, with actions from the Chinese government cutting into its profit margins and effectiveness (like forcing it to relinquish its media assets). Hong Kong debut was supposed to fix that, and so far it doesn’t look like it succeeded.

It looks like the price entered a channel after hitting its support level, with a possible downtrend in the future.

EUR/USD

The pair follows a strong downtrend interspersing with minute corrections.

Brent

Crude oil follows a slight downtrend after a sharp fall, with a possible correction and an uptrend in sight.
