What Does It Look Like in the Pre-London Session Today?

Before you start trading, you must do at least a simple form of analysis of the market so that you are equipped with all the information you need to make the right decisions. As such, here’s a summary of today’s outlook (16/12/2021) brought to you by our ZFX Analysts:

XAUUSD Technical Analysis – Commodities

XAUUSD (Gold) was shaken after last night’s FOMC. After signaling tapering and increasing interest rates next year, USD appreciation is brought into a short-term space. However, as XAUUSD closed bullishly on the daily candle, it’s showing that it’s ready to rise towards the next resistance after faking out on the lower timeframe.

BTCUSD Technical Analysis – Cryptocurrency

BTCUSD is very close to the key level and the trendline is leaning towards a potential reversal. On the H4 candle, we can see a bullish sentiment that’s slowly going away, marked by a body from a bullish candle that’s getting smaller and yesterday’s H4 candle closed bearishly, fighting off the resistance area around 49,200. Now, Bitcoin might retest to a support area at 46,800.

Pepsi Technical Analysis – American Stocks

Pepsi stocks are currently exploding upwards! Passing the resistance area at 167, Pepsi looks to be in the clear to go further north as it’s currently at its newest ATH. No one knows if Pepsi is going to retest or not but there is a big possibility that it will bounce in the 167 support area while holding back with the underlying uptrendline.
