The Hong Kong HS50 fell 2.2% in the previous week to mark the third straight week of decline. Hong Kong’s stocks are now almost returning to where they started this year despite an impressive 10.8% jump in January.

Hang Seng Weekly Review

Three slices of data from the US this month: glass-dropping employment numbers, a higher-than-expected CPI print, and then surprisingly robust retail sales numbers were seeing the global risk equity markets flipped over the rosy page in January, as raising concerns that the Fed will be forced to push terminal rates higher and extend its tightening journey.

During the first three weeks of February, the Hang Seng Index has dropped more than 5%, erasing most of the gains in January, with eyes now looking back to the level of 20100, where the new year started. In terms of sectors, the Hang Seng Technology Index is one of the worst performers, has dropped over 6.2% this month.

Hang Seng Week Ahead

For the week ahead, Alibaba and Baidu will step on the central stage to report their quarterly earnings after an eye-watering rebound recently.

Baidu, who attracted mounting spotlights this month after claiming to roll out its ChatGPT-like service in March, will unveil its Q4 earnings on Wednesday. Alibaba, with its share prices doubled in three months (from November to January), is expected to reveal a 20% quarterly EPS improvement on Thursday.

Hang Seng Technical Analysis

It’s clear that the optimism over China’s re-opening is now fading. As such, the strong momentum for Hang Seng Index since November is hitting a speed bump.

The descending trajectory, as noted in the daily chart, is sending the price back its September high, at around 20484. A break below this level will bring the 100-day in view, cementing the prospect of a bear overturn. The possibility of this scenario is also supported by the double breakouts in the weekly chart that, neither the three-month trendline nor the key support level (March 2020) succeeds in preventing the slide. On the other hand, a move above 20830 (23.6% retracement of the rally) could signal another test on 21216, where 50-day MA sits at the moment.

    • Crypto trading is a bit complicated when it comes to understanding the dynamics in profit making. Some people are more inclined to technical analysis which of course has been the widely used trading tool but some are more inclined to fundamentals but sticking to fundamentals alone could be highly risky in my own opinion even though crypto is also financial instrument that often respond to news updates.  A blend of the two could provide a safety net for traders in minimizing losses compared to potential profit. The above case scenario is largely attributed to perp futures trading and other derivatives. TA and FA could also be very useful for spot trading but I feel timely listing of projects could largely determine one's profit from investing in a project. These may not be for all projects cos some are **** coins. This could be a personal perspective but I have noticed listing speed is also another important factor to consider along with project fundamentals when trading and if we are to include listing speed as a factor for choosing trade then it will affect our choice of trading platform cos some are more inclined to top cap projects while others are more inclined low cap gems.   My experience with ORDI has proven this trading skill rewarding. ORDI was first listed on Bitget before other exchange joined the listing party after it saw rapid adoption reflecting in it significant MCap growth. This chart should give us a glimpse of my experience with this strategy.
    • In a stunning display of market momentum, the PANDORA token, the first of its kind, has skyrocketed an astonishing 4872% from its introduction on February 2nd to February 7th. This remarkable performance has not only caught the attention of cryptocurrency enthusiasts but has also solidified PANDORA’s position as a groundbreaking asset in the digital currency landscape. Pandora's ERC-404 protocol revolutionizes the token landscape by seamlessly blending the qualities of ERC20 and ERC721 standards. This experimental mixed implementation enables persistent liquidity and non-fungibility for NFTs, unlocking a realm of possibilities previously unexplored. Adding to the excitement, Bitget Wallet is gearing up to introduce a specialized section dedicated to ERC-404 token market listings. This feature creates a hub for tokens that blend the best of both worlds—the liquidity of ERC-20s and the uniqueness of ERC-721 NFTs. I have come to believe that, the electrifying surge of PANDORA token and the innovative ERC-404 standard is not just a fleeting trend but a window into the future of cryptocurrency.
