Technical Analysis


Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg has been actively selling shares in his own company since mid-November. The volume of transactions exceeded $195 million. Traders are unlikely to ignore this event. We believe the sales may continue.

From the point of view of technical analysis, the most suitable place for a fall trade is the reference point near the level of 291.


Oil prices can be expected to decline after the asset’s chart has formed a Pin Bar candlestick pattern.


The most likely scenario is a decline in the quotes of the currency pair due to the lack of support levels. In addition, the deterioration of economic relations with China is putting pressure on the AUD.
