Looking at $BABA through a perspective, it’s in a decent oversold condition with a defined risk/reward. The weekly candle is a reversal ‘doji’, and we’re below the forming descending (a typical “wave e”), plus the is crazy oversold (weekly has only been this low once or twice). Depending on what happens on Monday morning, you can buy at market open around 161 (likely no higher than 164), with a defined stop below the low of 152.39.
Looking at $BABA through a perspective, you can see that China’s S&P equivalent (the CSI 300 Index , bottom chart) is also weak, which means China ain’t so hot right now. We’re below all major moving averages, and our is showing no sign of a reversal. are all trending down.
From a macro perspective, there’s a lot of leftover tension from the trade war, and long term they’re looking to do CNYUSD currency swaps (that is, swap all reserves and holdings from global USD to Chinese CNY , which will ease their reliance and dependency on playing nice with the US). I’m no expert, but they’ll likely be selling USD and buying CNY , forcing the CNY up from increased demand. Therefore, because most of the CSI 300 companies ‘holders’ are denominated in CNY (I can’t imagine many foreign holders of these companies), the companies will lose relative ‘share value’ to CNY . A temporary drop in China’s stock market is a small price to pay for international autonomy and a shot at being the global reserve currency. Long term, they’re looking to replace all trade partners with domestic solutions, so maybe my boomer-buddy has the best BTFD moment in history!
