Today’s Pre-London Analysis:

Before you start trading, you need to do some analysis first. Here’s a little summary of today’s market picture (16/12/2021) brought to you by ZFX Analysts:

XAUUSD Technical Analysis – Commodities

XAUUSD (Gold) finally broke from the ranging area after 23 days. Although yesterday’s daily candle closed below 1800, GOLD managed to breakout solidly from the ranging area since 3 weeks ago. Now, gold is ready to challenge the resistance at H4 which might be the point where gold will retrace to the daily key level to resume its rise.

ETHUSD Technical Analysis – Cryptocurrency

ETHUSD looks poised to dip deeper. The ETH structure is still bearish and is currently forming a new lower high. On H4, there seems to be a small support holding ETHUSD, and if it breaks then ETH will fall to the next support at 3700 area.

Starbucks Technical Analysis – American Stocks

SBUX shares which closed bearish for 2 days in a row looks ready to break the mini support area at 113. If it breaks, maybe Starbucks will bounce off the up-trend line and retest and then drop to a stronger support area at 108.
