Technical Analysis

FTSE 100

The British government is preparing to impose tough quarantine measures against COVID-19 as the rate of increase in the number of cases continues to rise. The critical point was announced yesterday by the chief physician of the government, Chris Whitty. Against this background, traders began to actively sell off UK securities.

FTSE 100 lost more than 3% yesterday, however, based on Fibonacci levels, we can conclude that the collapse will continue to 5670.


The cryptocurrency pair has reached a strong support level of 0, which may trigger an increase in demand for ETH.


The British pound lost more than 1% against the yen yesterday as the chart finally broke the lower boundary of the rising channel. Against the background of the prevailing situation, there is a high probability that the downtrend will continue.
