Technical analysis


Two days ago, at the NATO summit, Donald Trump announced that he had no idea about the timing of a trade agreement with China. Against this background, the US stock market fell significantly. However, yesterday we received new information. A Bloomberg source said the two countries are nearing the completion of the first part of the agreement.

Despite this, the situation with the trade agreement remains unclear. The reason for this is the preparation of the United States to pass a bill aimed at protecting Uighurs living in China. Beijing is outraged by this news.

For this reason, a decrease in the Nasdaq index quotes seems more likely. An excellent entry point would be 8340.


The scenario of the collapse of oil is temporarily losing relevance. Follow the results of the OPEC meeting, which will be published either today or December 6th. If countries agree to reduce production, Brent will rise.


The support level of 0.98550 has once again shown stability. We expect a repetition of the growth cycle of the quote.
