Technical Analysis


After European countries reported tightening quarantine measures, EU stock indices began to moderately decline. The statistics on COVID-19 really do not please investors: in Italy and Spain, the records for the daily increase in new cases of diseases have been updated. At the same time, pharmaceutical companies are not yet ready to please investors with news about the completion of trials of a vaccine against COVID-19.

Meanwhile, oil prices began to decline. The bearish trend may continue to the lower boundary of the downtrend channel, that is, below $40 per barrel.


The crypto asset began to reverse from the resistance level of 394. Quotes may decline to the lower border of the 315 channel.


The fact that the currency pair will continue to decline is indicated by the “pin bar” candlestick pattern on the daily timeframe.
