BITCOIN, BTC/USD, CHINA, OIL, COPPER, IRON ORE - TALKING POINTS

  • Bitcoin prices fall alongside US stocks despite rosy US economic data
  • Copper and iron ore prices may rise further after PBOC comments
  • BTC/USD falls for second day, prices eye the psychological 20,000 level

TUESDAY’S ASIA-PACIFIC OUTLOOK
A risk-off tone sent US markets lower overnight, a move that is likely to extend into today’s Asia-Pacific trading session. The Nasdaq-100 Index (NDX) fell 0.81% in New York trading. The drop in technology stocks followed encouraging data out of the United States that showed the demand for goods across manufacturers remains strong.

Bitcoin prices fell too likely as a result of the broader pullback in market sentiment. In an interview, SEC Chair Gary Gensler labeled Bitcoin as a commodity. That would suggest that Bitcoin may better fall under the regulatory scrutiny of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC). Mr. Gensler made a clear distinction that he does not consider other cryptocurrencies to be a commodity, however.

Asian markets traded mostly higher on Monday, brushing off a report out of China that showed a drop in profits for industrial firms. The drop for May, however, was less severe than the prior month, crossing the wires at -6.5% compared to -8.5% in April. Increased profits from higher energy costs likely aided firms that produce gasoline and other energy-derived products.


Copper and iron ore prices moved higher despite Monday’s Chinese economic data. That is likely due to comments from the People’s Bank of China’s Governor Yi Gang. Mr. Gang stated, in a television interview, that “Monetary policy will continue to be accommodative to support economic recovery in an aggregate sense.” That statement appeared to encourage some bidding across the industrial metals space.

Elsewhere, oil prices moved higher across the WTI and Brent crude benchmarks. The G7 leaders, currently meeting in German, are said to be on the verge of announcing a plan to cap the price of Russian oil while still allowing it to be sold to major buyers like China and India. That plan would aim to hit Russia’s oil coffers while still lowering the price of oil on the global market. Details are expected as soon as tonight.

NOTABLE EVENTS FOR JUNE 28:
Japan – 2-Year JGB Auction
South Korea – Consumer Confidence (June)
Japan – Retail Sales (May)
 

BTC/USD TECHNICAL FORECAST
Bitcoin prices fell for a second session, but losses were moderate compared to the selling seen earlier this month. The 20,000 psychological level remains a key level of potential support should prices continue to fall. A rebound may see the 20-day Simple Moving Average (SMA) step in as resistance. The MACD oscillator flashed a bullish signal earlier this week, crossing above its signal line.

    • Through my years in the crypto space, referral events have been one of the best ways to earn cryptocurrency passively. Tell me about inviting friends and family for a few bucks, sounds good to me.  Bitget as a platform seeking to drive mainstream crypto adoption have come forth with referral contests that take different dimensions. Just today while I was scrolling X in my usual manner, I came across an event tagged, ‘’Group Invitation MVP- Referral Event’’.  The most striking thing about this lies in the ease of participation. To participate, you need to join and stay in this TG channel and discord server below. Afterwards, you'd follow the Bot’s instructions and invite friends via the referral link generated by the Bot below. The rewards are really mouth-watering, there's over 100 BGB up for grabs by Top 1,and 80 for Top 2 as well as other rewards for the other participants.  https://discord.gg/bitget https://t.me/BitgetENOfficial https://t.me/Bitget_Online_Bot  
    • Natural Gas Mode - Larger degree bullish correction Structure - Impulse wave wave C (blue) of Flat Position - Wave (3) Direction - Wave (3) is still in play Details:  The surge above the key resistance zone marked has called for a re-analysis. Thus daily and H4 have changed to the alternative scenario in mind.  Recovery from 1.524 emerging into an impose and now into wave (3). Natural Gas has extended its recovery from the February 2024 low, and the commodity is now anticipated to rise further in an impulse Elliott wave pattern. Meanwhile, the bigger picture indicates that prices are in a corrective phase following the bearish cycle that concluded between August 2022 and April 2023.   On the daily chart, a bearish impulse wave can be identified, lasting from August 2022 to April 2023. After such a decline, a corrective recovery is expected in the opposite direction, moving upwards. The emerging pattern in this case is an expanding flat. Expanding flats are 3-3-5 ABC structures where the second 3-wave segment breaks the starting price of the first 3-wave segment. Additionally, the third leg, which is a 5-wave segment, surpasses the endpoint of the first 3-wave segment (or the starting price of the second 3-wave segment).    On the Natural Gas price chart, the emerging flat began at 1.944 (April 2023 low) and completed the first three-wave segment—blue wave A—at 3.66 (October 2023 high). The second three-wave segment, blue wave B, then started and extended below 1.944 in a three-wave structure, reaching 1.524 (February 2024 low). The final leg, blue wave C, is currently ongoing and is expected to extend above 3.66 with an impulsive move. The price is currently in wave (3) of blue wave C.     On the H4 chart, we examine the sub-waves of wave (3). The price is currently in the third sub-wave, which is targeted to reach the 2.998 Fibonacci level or potentially higher before the fourth sub-wave begins to move downwards. In the near term, the potential for further upside in Natural Gas prices remains strong.   Technical Analyst : Sanmi Adeagbo Source : Tradinglounge.com get trial here!
