CSI 300 its broke 2015 high (5,380.42) on 6 January 2021 and could set to reach its 2007 ATH at 5,885.48.
Bitcoin’s break out to a new all-time high 25150 at the time of writing, the debasement of fiat currencies has resulted in Bitcoin becoming an increasingly viable “store of value” for the many institutions.
Microstrategy CEO Michael Saylor has bought $650 million worth of Bitcoin since December 11.
Big institutions who want to hedge against the debasement of fiat currencies are investing in BTC. This is particularly the case since custodian arrangements are now in place for owning Bitcoin offered by the likes of Fidelity.
In this respect, it is worth considering the numbers. The total market capitalisation of Bitcoin is now US$427bn which compares with the US$659bn market capitalisation of Tesla last Friday.
In America, Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance Company announced on 10 December that it has invested 0.04% of its general investment fund, or US$100m, into Bitcoin. While in Britain, Ruffer Investment, a wealth manager, announced last week that it allocated 2.5%, or roughly US$15m, of its US$620m multi-strategies fund to Bitcoin in November.
The latter investment in BTC is is interesting since has long being a conservative fund with emphasis on capital preservation.
Bitcoin is the only technology in our lifetime that enters the hypergrowth phase meeting up with shrinking supply.
Tesla is easily one of the hottest tech stock in 2020.
Shares of electric vehicle maker Tesla are up nearly 700 per cent over the last year, a meteoric rise has turned it into the world's most highly-valued automaker.
Is it too late to grab some ?
With markets running up from its March lows, many would agree that Tesla is one of the most sensational performer.
Tesla is now larger than the next five largest global auto companies (Figure 1) combined with a mammoth price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio standing at 1,278, according to FactSet data.
Given its gigantic size, Tesla could probably be a big macro driver of the market going into 2021 but is the valuations justified and will it be sustainable?
Looking at the earnings over the last 12 months, the S&P 500 was 26.79 times
Put it simply, investors have been willing to pay $26.79 for every $1 of earnings on an average S&P 500 component while Tesla investors are willing to shell out roughly $1,300 for every $1 of earnings produced by Tesla over the past year.
Apple potential entry into the auto industry could make a bearish case for Tesla
Morgan Stanley analysts see Apple’s rich ecosystem (deep pockets, capital access, ability to attract and retain talent and a large user base) as a strong basis of becoming a formidable opponent to Tesla than other auto-makers.
Should investors continue to plough into Tesla?
Now let us have a look at technicals and price action of Tesla on December 17, 2020, it hit the top of the trend channel and accompanied by high volume, a sign that it has completed its trend channel cycle.
A similar price action was seen on February 3, 2020 where Tesla price hit the top of the trend channel at $194 before a correction of more than 36% to $70 on March 18, 2020.
If the same price action plays out, I expect an impending correction like that of February beginning to unfold in the next 20 days
With the US presidential election now done with, and Joe Biden the president-elect of the US, we take a look this week at the US dollar and why I'm long term bearish on the reserve currency.
Also, with this bearish view in mind, who are the potential beneficiaries of a weak dollar?

If it fails to make a clear break above the 2,839 resistance, the immediate shelf of support will be 2705 – 2662 followed by 200 MA support at 2,620.
RSI momentum indicator shows that FTSE STI continues to trade at this week’s high, any short-term hesitation should be limited by this support zone between 2705 and 2662. A test and rebound off this support zone should lead to another test and potential break above the 2,839 and 2,894 resistance.
On the other hand, failure to hold above the 200-MA line would leave the market at best trapped in a trading range between the June highs and the September/October lows.
