Germany's Financial Watchdog Monday, February 18, 2019
#Germany's Financial Watchdog Bafin On Monday Issued A Ban Against Establishing Or Increasing Short Positions In #Wirecard AG Stock, Citing Market Uncertainties Due To The German Payments Company's Weak Share Performance. "There is a risk that an impact exerted on the share price of Wirecard AG as a result of net short positions being entered into or existing net short positions being increased will cause excessive price movements in the share price of Wirecard AG, given this company's importance for the economy," Bafin added. "Short attacks" followed and facilitated by negative reporting in the media had targeted the company between 2008 and 2016, Bafin said, adding, "through which short-sellers profited from entering into certain positions, resulting in corresponding decreases in the share price of Wirecard AG." The regulator said the ban applied until April 18.
Shares in Wirecard were expected to open 5.9 percent higher at 0549 GMT.

Hay diferentes tipos de filtros en este caso este, pero el porcentaje variaría según tu decisión propia, en el caso de porcentajes muy bajos no serían muy útil para reducir el impacto de las malas señales , pero si es muy grande pasará desapercibido en el caso de ser una buena señal. Mañana explicaré otro tipo de filtro que se puede usar para detectar si una ruptura es válida.‼️💲🇪🇦—————————————————————————

Wednesday Is FOMC Minutes, Here's Is What you Need To Know.
Back in January, the FOMC made a complete U-turn on its monetary policy stance. FOMC members effectively noted that the balance sheet could be adjusted if need be. Furthermore, the FOMC called for â€˜patience’ with future rate hikes. At the time, this generated a large amount of weakness for the greenback. Eyes are on a potential dovish statement from the central bank, with close attention to the language used.
Market participants will be looking for further confirmation that the bank’s hiking cycle is over. As a result, this could potentially force pressure to the downside on the USD, should the market interpret such a tone from the FOMC.
Federal Open Market Committee January meeting minutes are due for release on Wednesday 2018 February 2019 at 1900GMT (03:00 HK/SG)
Here's what they are watch:
January meeting codified flexibility, "wait and see" approach
Minutes to be read for additional insight on what conditions FOMC would like to see before making the next policy change
Particular attention may be focused on balance sheet normalization - Powell's presser indicated the normalization path is flexible, & suggested there was a willingness to use the balance sheet as a tool if economic conditions warranted

Both the #U.S. and #China reported progress in trade negotiations last week, but #President#Donald#Trump said Friday that the talks were “ #very complicated" and that he might extend the March 1 deadline and keep tariffs on Chinese goods from rising.

The Dollar Index Monday, February 18, 2019
The #dollar was marginally weaker on Monday, as increasing expectations of a #U.S.-Sino trade deal led investors to shift away from the safety of the greenback into riskier assets.
Both the #United States and #China reported progress in five days of negotiations in #Beijing last week, although the White House said much work remains to be done to force changes in Chinese trade behavior.
Negotiations will continue next week in #Washington as investors hope for an end to the trade war between the world's two largest economies. "Trade is the big focus for the markets...with talks shifting from Beijing to Washington, we could get more news flow," said #Michael McCarthy, chief markets strategist at CMC Markets. "I expect the euro to remain under pressure this week while #dollar/yen could also fall if we see risk-aversion based on negative trade news flow." The A #ussie gained 0.1 percent to $0.7144, after gaining 0.48 percent on Friday on hopes of a trade breakthrough between the United States and China. The kiwi dollar also gained around 0.1 percent on the dollar to [email protected]://gulfbrokers.ae/ #gulfbrokersdmcc#dgcx#trading#gold#oil#futures#marketsnow.
