Facebook Stock Price Under Pressure After This Week’s Outage

fb.jpg


At the beginning of this trading week, Facebook suffered an outage that lasted for several hours and prevented the users of its apps and services, including Instagram, WhatsApp, and even the company’s website, from accessing them.

Facebook stock price dropped down, too. Investors reacted quickly by selling the stock short, as the outage has created a dangerous precedent.

Facebook makes most of its revenues from running ads on its platforms, mainly on Facebook, but also on Instagram. The shutdown of any of its income sources is a threat to the company’s future, and the fact that Facebook was not able to recover for several hours worried investors.

A faulty configuration change was responsible for the outage, according to Facebook. The big question is, could it happen again?

What Does Technical Analysis Say?

Truth be told, Facebook charts looked bearish well before this week’s shutdown. The stock price started trending higher after it broke out of a bullish triangle in spring, and did not look back all the way until it reached $380.

It climbed to record levels making a series of higher highs and higher lows, typical in rising trends. Technical traders can even spot a bullish channel, but one that is broken now.

Moreover, the price action is bearish at the moment because the decline caused by this week’s incident broke the higher lows series. Such a break is said to be bearish, as it signals the end of the previous bullish trend. Moving forward, support is not seen until the level of $300.

Facebook is to report its quarterly earnings on October 25, and the market expects EPS of $3.17. The company operates with a gross profit margin of 80.98%, much higher than the 51.07% sector median. Facebook stock price is up +21.89% this year.

Japanese Stocks Outperformed Their Peers in September. Will the Rally Continue?

tokyo-stock-exchange-japan.jpg


In September, financial markets celebrated the change in the Japanese leadership by sending up the stocks. Likewise, the news of the Japanese prime minister’s resignation has spurred a stock market rally, and in September, the TOPIX index outperformed its peers like NASDAQ or MSCI AC World Index.

Since a new prime minister was approved by the parliament, the stock market has been rallying on the news that the new leadership is preparing a new stimulus package to support economic recovery.

But there is something else behind the Japanese equities rally. As it turns out, the new prime minister, Fumio Kishida, is backing down on his talk of raising corporate taxes. The news has spurred a further rally in the stocks and a lowering of the Japanese yen.

major-equity-market.jpg


What About the Japanese Yen?

The Japanese yen has been dropping like a rock recently, as seen in the main JPY pairs like USD/JPY and EUR/JPY. USD/JPY, in particular, seems very strong. The market trades now close to 113, up close to 100 pips points since the start of the current trading week.

The move higher in the Japanese yen diverges from the rest of the financial markets. The yen is typically viewed as a risk-off currency, and the stock market decline in September failed to trigger a stronger yen. Instead, it correlates now with the Japanese equities.

Another factor driving Japanese equities higher is the successful vaccination campaign. While the campaign started slow, it is now fast approaching herd immunity levels.

All in all, the momentum in the Japanese equity market seems strong, fueled by local developments. Unless we see a major correction in the US equity markets that will be able to derail the Japanese yen trend, chances are that we will see more of the same in the months left in the trading year.

Bitcoin Trades Back Above $60,000, Eyes New Record Highs

dcx1.jpg


Cryptocurrency traders and investors are cheering the recent bitcoin rally. The leading cryptocurrency is trading back above $60,000, coming close to a new all-time high.

The most recent data related to the crypto market size explains why bitcoin has attracted so many buyers in the latest months. The global crypto market size keeps growing, with more and more people shifting their gaze to crypto assets. In a single month, from May to June 2021, the crypto market added 18 million new users. Because bitcoin is the most popular coin, it is likely that the new funds injected into the crypto space went to it.

btcx.jpg


Bullish Developments in the Crypto Space

Besides the increased popularity in the cryptocurrency space, as suggested by the rising number of crypto users, some other recent bitcoin-related events can be characterized as bullish.

One comes from the Security and Exchange Commission (SEC). It is poised to approve the first-ever bitcoin ETF, which would open the space to a much wider investors base. This news alone was largely responsible for bitcoin’s recent rally. An ETF is an exchange-traded fund that tracks the price movements of its underlying – in this case, bitcoin. Investors favor ETFs due to them being a cost-efficient way of trading expensive assets.

Another such driver is the Bank of America’s decision to introduce coverage of digital assets as the cryptocurrency market reached $2 trillion in market value.

The recent developments triggered enthusiasm among crypto traders, and so the crypto market continues to rise. In the meantime, bitcoin has surpassed Facebook in terms of market value and is on track to take the silver.

Bitcoin traded close to $65,000 back in April this year, and it corrected after Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla, suggested that the digital asset is too expensive. The current upwards movement also helps Tesla, as the company holds more than $1 billion worth of bitcoins on its balance sheet.

The Week Ahead

If the prices of BTCUSD continue to remain above the $63,000 mark this week, we may see a fresh rally towards $65,000 in the markets in the opening of the next week.

Both the medium- and long-term outlooks remain positive. Next week, we may witness BTC printing at above the $65,000 mark.

EURUSD Volatility Expected to Increase As ECB's Decision Looms

eur.jpg


The EURUSD has been trading in relatively tight ranges recently despite important economic data releases. The pair has found strong support at the 1.16 level as buyers stepped in on every move below. However, the bounces have been shallow and with little or no follow-through.

This week, the price action on the EURUSD is expected to increase dramatically as investors prepare for two crucial events that will impact the currency pair: the European Central Bank meeting, and the Federal Reserve of the United States (FED) meeting next week.

ecb-asset-purchasesx.jpg


The Fed to Officially Announce Tapering

The Fed is set to officially announce the tapering of its asset purchases at next week's meeting. Last Friday, the Fed's chair said he believed that the time for tapering had come — but the EURUSD did not react, perhaps because the news came late on a Friday afternoon.

The statement is clearly hawkish for the dollar, and it should weigh on the EURUSD pair, especially since the ECB considers an opposite strategy. It will not taper yet; thus, the two monetary policies diverge.

The EURUSD is the most popular currency pair on the FX dashboard and one that sets the course for the dollar index. Despite finding buyers below 1.16 in the last weeks, the bias remains bearish heading into the two central banks meetings.

On Thursday, the focus sits with the ECB press conference and its staff's economic projections. As always, projections for inflation expectations are key for the euro. On Friday, investors will start to prepare for the Fed meeting scheduled for next week, and if the ECB keeps its dovish bias, the chances are that the EURUSD will test its recent lows around the 1.15 level.
