Car crashes into pedestrians in Melbourne, leaving at least 15 injured A car careened into pedestrians and Christmas shoppers in a bustling part of central Melbourne, Australia on Thursday afternoon, injuring at least 15 people.
Australian police said they arrested the driver of the car and another man. Police believe the driver deliberately struck the pedestrians, though the motivation for the crash wasn’t clear. They didn’t say whether the incident was related to terrorism.
An ambulance-service spokesman said at least 13 people had been transported to hospitals, while two others were being assessed by paramedics at the scene.
“Police have saturated the [central business district] area in the vicinity,” Victoria Police said in a statement. The driver of the car and another man were arrested at the scene, a spokesman said.

Unidentified trader bets $1 million that bitcoin will reach $50,000 Someone out there just made a bet that bitcoin will surge above $50,000 next year, trading data show—about triple its current price.
Daily trading records released Wednesday by LedgerX, a startup electronic market for bitcoin derivatives, show that an unidentified trader or traders entered the bullish bets using bitcoin call options that expire next December. The trade wagering on a move to $50,000 was the first of its kind on LedgerX.
Just under $1 million was paid for the options in one or more trades that took place during the 24-hour period ending at 4 p.m. Eastern Time on Wednesday, the records show. It is unclear from LedgerX’s data who the buyer or buyers were or whether the purchasing was done in multiple transactions or just one.

As the single currency has eased after rising to 1.1902 yesterday, minor consolidation below this level would be seen and pullback to 1.1840-50 cannot be ruled out, however, reckon 1.1805-10 would contain downside and bring another rise later, above said resistance at 1.1902 would extend the erratic upmove from 1.1717 towards resistance at 1.1940 which is likely to hold from here due to near term overbought condition.
In view of this, would not chase this rise here and would be prudent to buy euro on pullback as 1.1820 should limit downside. Below 1.1800 woul..Read More →

As the British pound retreated after rebounding to 1.3420 in part due to cross-trading, suggesting consolidation would be seen, however, reckon downside would be limited to 1.3350 and support at 1.3331 should hold, bring another rebound. Only a drop below 1.3331 would signal the rebound from 1.3302 has ended and revive bearishness for a retest of 1.3302 first.
On the upside, whilst recovery to 1.3400 cannot be ruled out, reckon upside would be limited to said resistance at 1.3420 and bring another retreat later. Above 1.3420 would extend the rebound from 1.3302 to 1.3445-50, however, reckon indicated resistance at 1.3466 would hold from here, bring retreat later. As near term outlook is still ..Read More →

Despite yesterday’s brief fall to 0.9828, lack of follow through selling on break of previous support at 0.9835 and the subsequent rebound suggest consolidation would be seen, however, break of 0.9886 resistance is needed to signal low has been formed, bring a stronger rebound to 0.9910-15 but indicated resistance at 0.9935-36 should hold from here, bring another decline.
On the downside, below said support at 0.9828 would extend the decline from 0.9978 to 0.9795-00, however, reckon downside would be limited to 0.9750 and risk from there has increased for a rebound later due to anticipated ..Read More →
