Technical Analysis


While Baidu suffered from the Chinese government’s close attention, Baidu World 2021 is a chance for the company to up its profits. With the demonstration of new projects and products, we can expect an increase in interest from investors.

The stock is seemingly set on a tentative recovery, and unless something drastic happens, we can expect its price to start growing.

Dow Jones

The index is currently moving downwards, as its upward correction didn’t manage to completely reverse the previous downtrend.


The pair is moving down from its previous heights, and we expect this trend to continue for today.
