**PivotBoss Pre-Market Video [May 25, 2022]: Massive Collapse Coming for BTC, ETH?** MAY 25, 2022 — WEDNESDAY AM The ES is currently holding just above yMID, while the NQ is currently trading below this key level today. yMID is the pivot to watch early in the day, as a failure to hold this level could lead prices back to yLO, and perhaps even lower. Any bounce is still likely to be a selling opportunity until proven otherwise. Crude Oil has developed a narrow 4-day trading range, which could lead to the next 11-point move ahead. BTC and ETH are still building out within the developing 9-day trading range, which have enough energy to push these markets much lower. ETH could see a 50% haircut ahead if the break occurs to the downside.

By Andrew Galbraith SHANGHAI (Reuters) - Asian shares jumped on Friday after China cut a key lending benchmark to support a slowing economy, but a gauge of global equities remained set for its longest weekly losing streak on record amid investor worries about sluggish growth. China cut its five-year loan prime rate (LPR) by 15 basis points on Friday morning, a sharper cut than had been expected, as authorities seek to cushion an economic slowdown by reviving the housing sector. The five-year rate influences the pricing of mortgages. MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan quickly built on early gains after the cut and was last up more than 1.8%. European equities were set to follow Asia's lead, with pan-region Euro Stoxx 50 futures, German DAX futures and FTSE futures all up more than 1%. Chinese blue-chips also rose 1.8%, boosted by foreign buying, and Hong Kong's Hang Seng index jumped more than 2%, while Australian shares rose 1.1%. In Tokyo, the Nikkei stock index gained 1.3%. "While it certainly will not suffice to reverse growth headwinds in Q2, (the cut) constitutes a move in the right direction so markets might be reacting to expectations of stronger easing going forward," said Carlos Casanova, senior Asia economist at Union Bancaire Privee in Hong Kong. Despite the gains in Asian shares, MSCI's All-Country World Price Index remained headed for its seventh straight week in the red, the longest such stretch since its inception in 2001. It would also be the longest including back-tested data extending to January 1988. Concerns over the impact of battered supply chains on inflation and growth have prompted investors to dump shares, with Cisco Systems Inc (NASDAQ:CSCO) on Thursday tumbling to an 18-month low after it warned of persistent component shortages, citing the impact of China's COVID lockdowns. On Friday, China's financial hub of Shanghai bruised residents' hopes for a smooth end to restrictions as it announced three new COVID-19 cases outside of quarantined areas - though plans to end a prolonged city-wide lockdown on June 1 appeared to remain on track. Industrial output in the city shrank more than 60% in April from a year earlier due to the impact of coronavirus restrictions. "The focus of (Chinese) officials has been to come up with easing policies to mitigate the impact of COVID suppression ... The problem is that such easing policies will not have any real impact so long as the COVID suppression policy is tightly enforced," said Christopher Wood, global head of equities at Jefferies. The gains in Asia came after a late rally on Wall Street petered out, leaving the Dow Jones Industrial Average down 0.75%, the S&P 500 0.58% lower and the Nasdaq Composite off by 0.26%. STRONGER YUAN In the currency market, the dollar index retreated from small earlier gains to nudge down 0.12% to 102.79, heading for its first losing week in seven. Moves elsewhere were muted, with the dollar just on the stronger side of flat against the safe-haven yen at 127.76. The euro was barely higher at $1.0586, erasing earlier losses. China's onshore yuan logged bigger moves, turning around from a 0.32% dip to strengthen to a two-week high of 6.6699 per dollar. The more freely traded offshore yuan also hit a two-week high at 6.6855 per dollar. While longer-dated U.S. government bond yields ticked higher following China's LPR cut, mirroring gains in equities, they later moderated. The U.S. 10-year yield was last at 2.855%, flat from Thursday's close, and down from a top of 2.922% earlier on Friday. The two-year yield climbed to 2.6327% compared with a U.S. close of 2.611%. Crude prices pared losses after China's LPR announcement but later extended falls on worries a demand recovery could falter. Brent crude was last down 0.53% at $111.45 per barrel and U.S. West Texas Intermediate crude was 1.21% lower at $110.85 per barrel. Gold bounced higher and was set for its first weekly gain since mid-April, helped by the weaker dollar. Spot gold, rose 0.26% to $1,846.49 per ounce. [GOL/]

**PivotBoss Pre-Market Video [May 18, 2022]: Watching yMID** MAY 18, 2022 — WEDNESDAY AM The ES and NQ are both seeing an early Fade After Trend Day move, with each returning to yMID for a big test early in the day. Can bulls keep yMID bid for a shot at a checkmark trend day up? Or will bears push prices through yMID for a shot at a bearish outside day down? All eyes will be on yMID early in the session for today's directional cues. Crude Oil has backed off the 115-116 zone, and could return to the 107.85 FOMC key level below, along with the center of the range at 105. BTC and ETH are trading within extremely narrow inside days ranges, and have developed narrow ranges over the last 3-4 days, which means energy is building up for a big move ahead.

**PivotBoss Pre-Market Video [May 17, 2022]: Fed Chair Powell on Deck** MAY 17, 2022 — TUESDAY AM The ES is currently trading above yHI, which is the key pivot to watch early in the session. A failure to hold above yHI could trigger the development of a bearish FNH and a potential outside day down. The ES and NQ are both trading within the bearish PEMA trigger zone, as well, which offers an opportunity for bears to sell the rip ahead of new lows ahead. Fed Chair Powell speaks later this afternoon at 1pm CT, so all eyes will be on him, with potential headline risk later today. Crude Oil has hit the upper end of its trading range between 115 and 116, and could see a return to the FOMC key level below at 107.85. BTC and ETH are both holding above significant support levels - 25000 and 1700, respectively, and appear to be in a holding pattern ahead of Fed Chair Powell later this afternoon.

By Noah Browning LONDON (Reuters) -Oil prices rose on Friday but were headed for their first weekly loss in three weeks as worries about inflation and China's COVID lockdowns slowing global growth offset concerns about dwindling supplies from Russia. Brent crude futures were up $2.32, or 2.2%, at $109.77 a barrel at 1345 GMT, while U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude futures climbed $2.52, or 2.4%, to $108.65 a barrel. Both benchmark contracts were, however, on track to post slight declines for the week. The market is continuing to be pushed and pulled by the prospect of a European Union ban on Russian oil tightening supply and concerns about faltering global demand. SPI Asset Management managing partner Stephen Innes said in a note that oil traders were looking "for a glimmer of light at the end of China's gloomy lockdown tunnel". "Still, we continuously end up at square one with lower case counts weighted against the authorities doubling down on their zero COVID policy," he added. Inflation and rate rises have driven the U.S. dollar to 20-year highs, capping oil price gains as a stronger dollar makes oil more expensive when purchased in other currencies. Analysts, however, continue to focus on the prospect of a European Union ban on Russian oil, after Moscow imposed sanctions this week on European units of state-owned Gazprom (MCX:GAZP) and after Ukraine halted a key gas transit route. "Oil prices are rebounding today as the world is in wait-and-see mode over a broad economic downturn and the potential implications of a recession on oil demand," said Rystad Energy analyst Louise Dickson. "Extended Covid-19 lockdowns in China, rising cases elsewhere, and fiscal policy decisions to combat soaring inflation are giving the markets reason to be skittish as oil continues its run of over $100/barrel averages." An International Energy Agency report on Thursday said rising oil production in the Middle East and the United States and a slowdown in demand growth were "expected to fend off an acute supply deficit amid a worsening Russian supply disruption".

But can the markets continue to hold above yHI heading into the afternoon. Failure to stay above yHI could trigger another round of late-day weakness, which makes yHI the key pivot to watch today. Crude Oil is approaching the top end of its trading range, while ETH has made it back above 2100 after rejecting 1700 during Thursday's trading.

**PivotBoss Pre-Market Video [May 12, 2022]: BTC Hits 25k, ETH Hits 1700** MAY 12, 2022 — THURSDAY AM The ES and NQ continue to sell off and are currently working toward the 100% key range targets below. Until the market capitulates, we will likely see further selling pressure ahead. Any bounces remains an opportunity to sell, until proven otherwise. Crude Oil continues to remain within its trading range. BTC finally wiped out last year's low and reached the important 25k level, while ETH has hit the significant 1700 level. So far, major reactions have occurred off these levels, as these markets are attempting to find strong lows. If today can prove to find a strong low, we may see a bounce back to the midpoint of the impulsive sell-offs we've seen over the last week. If these significant support levels can't hold, look out below.

The NQ is bouncing off last year's low price, which can tend to be the low looking outward 1 to 2 years. The ES and NQ are both bouncing off yearly S3, which can tend to be a strong low, as well. The ES is also bouncing off the key 4000 level. BTC and ETH are up big, as extreme reversals are developing. BTC also tested prices below 30k for the first time since last year, and so far are being rejected. Is this the beginning of a developing bottom for the broader market? Yesterday's midpoint will be the level to watch today, as a close above these levels will go a long way to short term strength ahead, which could develop into broader strength on a longer term basis.

By Anshuman Daga SINGAPORE (Reuters) - Asian equities slipped to the lowest in nearly two years on Tuesday, before trimming losses, as investors fretted about the toxic cocktail of rising interest rates and weaker economic growth. Sentiment was supported by gains in U.S. stock futures, which turned positive after declining earlier. S&P 500 stock futures and Dow Jones futures both rose 0.6%, while Nasdaq futures gained 1.3%. Growing fears of recession and a slowdown in China dragged on commodity-linked currencies and oil prices, though safety flows kept the dollar near 20-year highs. MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares ex-Japan traded down 0.8% in early afternoon but pared sharp losses struck earlier. The benchmark had fallen as much as 2.3% to 515.7, sliding for a seventh straight session and extending losses to 18% so far this year. "Chinese growth is facing significant headwinds, whether you look at official or private sector Purchasing Managers' Index," said Song Seng Wun, an economist at CIMB Private Banking. "Softening global growth is the persistent wall of worry for markets as investors look beyond the next 3-6 months. The view on growth momentum seems to be that revenge spending after the pandemic may be affected by higher borrowing costs," he said. Across Asia, share indexes recovered from the day's losses. The Nikkei lost 0.4%, Australian shares shed 1.1%, Korean stocks lost 0.5% and Taiwan equities edged up 0.1%. MSCI's Asian benchmark fell to the lowest since early July 2020. Chinese equities are the worst performers among major markets so far this year, recording losses of between 21 and 25%. Singapore and Indonesian stock indexes have, however, remained steady. Growth worries resurfaced after central banks in the United States, Britain and Australia raised interest rates last week and investors girded for more tightening as policymakers fight soaring inflation. Hong Kong's benchmark share index returned from a one-day holiday sharply lower on Tuesday and slumped more than 4% before halving losses. On Monday, Shanghai and Beijing tightened COVID-19 curbs which have already taken a heavy toll on the world's second-largest economy. China's export growth slowed to its weakest in almost two years, data showed, as the central bank pledged to step up support for the slowing economy Overnight, U.S. stocks extended Friday's bruising sell-off as investors rushed to protect themselves against the prospect of a weakening economy. [.N] "The idea of a benign and gentle tightening cycle has evaporated," ANZ analysts said in a report. "The reality is that the Fed cannot control the supply side of the economy in the short-run, so as long as key indicators like the labour force participation rate stay low and Chinese exports slow, the risk to inflation, and therefore interest rates, lies to the upside," ANZ said. Oil prices retreated again on demand worries as coronavirus lockdowns in China, the top oil importer, continued. Brent crude fell 0.9% to $105 a barrel and U.S. West Texas Intermediate crude declined 1% to $102 a barrel, adding to a 6% slump in the previous session. Both contracts are still up about 35% so far this year. Commodity-linked currencies including the Australian and Canadian currencies took a beating as oil prices fell. The Australian dollar dropped as low as $0.6920, its weakest since July 2020, having fallen 1.7% overnight. Lower oil prices also hit the Canadian dollar, which eased to C$1.3037 per dollar, its weakest since November 2020. The dollar index eased 0.2% to 103.5, having risen as high as 104.19 overnight, a fresh 20-year peak. U.S. Treasury yields, which have climbed sharply on expectations of aggressive tightening by the Federal Reserve, took a breather after Atlanta Fed President Raphael Bostic pushed back on suggestions of a massive 75 basis point rate hike at the Fed's next meeting.

By Tommy Wilkes LONDON (Reuters) - Stocks fell heavily again on Monday and the dollar rocketed to a new two-decade high as worries about higher interest rates and a tightened lockdown in Shanghai deepened investors' fears that the global economy is rapidly heading for a slowdown. After a bruising session on Friday in which U.S. stocks sold off sharply as another rise in long-dated U.S. Treasury yields unnerved investors, markets were set for a rocky start to the week, with most indexes in the red. Central banks in the United States, Britain and Australia all raised interest rates last week, and investors are bracing for more tightening as policymakers try to get on top of soaring inflation. "We see recession risk over the next 12 to 18 months to be as high as about 30%," said Dan Ivascyn, group chief investment officer at bond giant PIMCO. "One of the key reasons for that is the Fed and other central banks appear dead set on getting inflation under control." There was plenty more for investors to worry about on Monday aside from tightening financial conditions. There appeared to be no let-up in China's zero-COVID policy, with Shanghai tightening the city-wide lockdown for 25 million residents. Speculation that Russian President Vladimir Putin might declare war on Ukraine in order to call up reserves during his speech at "Victory Day" celebrations also hurt market sentiment. Putin has so far characterised Russia's actions in Ukraine as a "special military operation", not a war. Wall Street futures headed sharply lower with the S&P 500 futures down 2% and Nasdaq futures 2.5%. The S&P 500 and Nasdaq on Friday posted their fifth straight week of declines -- their longest losing streak in a decade. The Euro STOXX weakened 2%. Germany's DAX lost 1.6% and Britain's FTSE 100 1.78%. MSCI's main emerging market stocks index fell 1.2% to its lowest level since July 2020. The MSCI World Index dropped 0.7%, leaving it not far from the 17-month intraday low reached on Friday. (Graphic- World equities: https://fingfx.thomsonreuters.com/gfx/ MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan fell 1.4% and Japan's Nikkei 2.53%. Chinese blue chips eased 0.8%, while in offshore markets the yuan fell to as low as 6.7759 per dollar, its weakest since October 2020. The big data event of the week is the U.S. consumer price report due on Wednesday, when only a slight easing in inflation is forecast, and certainly nothing to prevent the Federal Reserve from hiking by at least 50 basis points in June. U.S. 10-year bond yields on Monday reached a new 3-1/2 year high of 3.203%. DOLLAR DOMINANCE With investors juggling so many worries, one place they are looking for safety is in the dollar. The dollar index, which measures the greenback against a basket of currencies, rose as much as 0.4% to 104.19, the latest in a string of 20-year highs. "Risk appetite is fragile and yield spreads continue to suggest further upside on the Dollar Index," said Sean Callow, a senior FX strategist at Westpac. "We look for ongoing demand for DXY (the dollar index) on dips, with 104 already being probed and still potential for a run towards 107 multi-week." The soaring dollar is hammering other currencies. The euro briefly dropped back below $1.05 while the Japanese yen fell to its weakest since 2002. Expectations that the Fed will move more aggressively in raising interest rates are supporting the dollar, as is a sense among investors that the U.S. economy will hold up better than a euro zone hit by the fallout from the war in Ukraine. But rates are also rising in the euro zone. On Monday, Germany's 10-year bond yield hit a new highest level since 2014, buoyed by hawkish policymaker Robert Holzmann saying on Saturday that the European Central Bank should raise rates three times this year to combat inflation. The diary is full of Fed speakers this week, giving them plenty of opportunity to keep up the hawkish chorus. Oil prices initially see-sawed after the Group of Seven nations committed to banning or phasing out imports of Russian oil over time, before falling. Brent dropped 2.15% at $109.97 by 1115 GMT, while U.S. crude dropped 2.39% to $107.15. [O/R] Spot gold prices lost 1.24% to $1,859 an ounce, having struggled recently to gain traction as a safe haven. [GOL/]

By Marc Jones LONDON (Reuters) - Global equity markets were still on the front foot on Thursday on relief that the biggest hike in U.S. interest rates in more than two decades hadn't been even sharper. London, Paris and Frankfurt raced up between 1.3% and 2% in Europe (EU) amid collective cheers at Wednesday's 50 basis point Federal Reserve rate hike and its accompanying signals that 75 bps moves were now unlikely. It kept European government bond yields largely in check as the Bank of England hikes its rates for the fourth time since December, while Brent prices steadied after the European Union's plan to ban Russian oil imports have seen them spike 5%. [O/R] "The fact (Fed Chair) Powell removed the 75 basis point hike from the table, I think that is what the markets are reacting to, it is a bit of a relief rally," BlackRock (NYSE:BLK)'s EMEA Head of Investment Strategy for its iShares unit, Karim Chedid, said. "Inflation data is all important now and if it flattens off as the Fed is expecting then the markets will be ok with that." In currency markets, the dollar was gradually regaining its footing after the Fed's move had caused its biggest drop in nearly two months. It is up more than 7% so far this year, on track for its biggest annual gains since 2015. [/FRX] Sterling shuffled back to $1.2548 despite the 25 bps BoE hike which had been fully expected while the euro also wilted back to $1.05 after dire German industrial orders data. "The German economy is programmed for a downturn," said Thomas Gitzel, chief economist at VP Bank, pointing to a plunge in exports in March as well. "The war in Ukraine, the supply chain problems and high rates of inflation are spoiling companies' appetite for investment. Incoming orders are suffering from this," he said, adding that a recession was becoming increasingly likely. The main action was centred on the equity markets, though. Wall Street bulls had seen the Dow Jones Industrial Average jump 2.8%, the S&P 500 gain 3% and Nasdaq finish 3.1% higher. Futures prices pointed to some profit taking later, but BlackRock's Chedid said there might now finally be some positive signs showing. [.N] Trading in U.S. Exchange Traded Funds - the main instruments now used to passively follow major market moves - had surged to 37% of all dealing during Wednesday's rally, 10% more than normal over the last month. "It suggests we are getting some dip-buying behaviour, which is a good sign for equities," he added, pointing out too that with bonds globally now offering investors 4% return overall, money was now flowing into that key segment too. FED UP For bears, there were still no signs of a truce in Ukraine ahead of next week's key WWII Victory Day parades in Moscow. Having failed to capture Kyiv in the early weeks of an invasion that has killed thousands and flattened towns, Russia has accelerated attacks in southern and eastern Ukraine, including on the Azovstal steel works in Mariupol. Overnight, MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan had risen a modest 0.5%, although trading had been thin with both Japanese and Korean markets still closed for public holidays. Marcella Chow, Hong Kong-based global market strategist at J.P. Morgan Asset Management, said the region was likely to be relieved that the Federal Reserve's rate rise was in line with expectations, as it impacts global sentiment and costs. The half a percentage point rate increase was the biggest jump in 22 years and first back-to-back rise since 2006. Fed Chair Jerome Powell said policymakers were ready to approve similar-sized rate hikes at upcoming policy meetings in June and July. Crucially for many investors, though, he also said it was not "actively considering" a 75 basis-point rate hike, tempering fears something of that magnitude could be on the cards with U.S. inflation now its hottest in decades. China's battered shares had also recovered some ground, gaining 0.7% as mainland markets resumed trade after a three-day holiday. Investors also cheered a pledge by China's central bank for more monetary policy support to help businesses badly hit by the latest COVID-19 outbreak. J.P. Morgan's Chow added she expects that market to make further gains with other high level Chinese officials also pledging support recently. Among the key commodities, gold was up almost 1% at $1,900 per ounce having dropped 8% since March. U.S. crude futures gained 0.3% to $108.21 a barrel and Brent steadied at $110.25. Both benchmarks had risen over $5 a barrel on Wednesday after the European Union laid out plans for new sanctions against Russia, including an embargo on crude in six months. [O/R] The proposal, which needs unanimous backing from all 27 EU countries, also includes a phasing out of imports of Russian refined products by the end of 2022 and a ban on all shipping and insurance services for the transportation of Russian oil. "The oil market has not fully priced in the potential of an EU oil embargo, so higher crude prices are to be expected in the summer months if it's voted into law," said Rystad Energy’s head of oil markets research, Bjornar Tonhaugen.

Please use the following ZOOM webinar link to join this free event: https://us06web.zoom.us/j/89749859578 The ES and NQ are trading within super narrow ranges heading into the RTH session today, as the broader market awaits the FOMC statement and rate decision later this afternoon. Look for further range-bound chop ahead of the statement, as the market is likely to remain mostly within the previous session's range. Crude Oil remains at the apex of the large triangle pattern, and may continue to see chop around the 105 level. BTC and ETH remain on key support ahead of the Fed.
