BTC/USD Seeking Direction Around 9223: Sally Ho’s Technical Analysis 24 May 2020 BTC
Bitcoin (BTC/USD) attempted to extend its recent upward momentum during today’s Asian session as the pair continued to trade above the 9000 figure after bids emerged around the 8800 area during yesterday’s Asian session. Some minor Stops have recently been elected above the 9196.13 area, representing the 38.2% retracement of the recent depreciation from 9836.99 to 8800.00. Buying pressure also emerged around the 9044.73 area, representing the 23.6% retracement of the depreciating range. Additional upside price retracement levels that traders are monitoring include the 9440.86 and 9592.26 levels. The recent depreciation was quite technical in nature, as the 8820.08 area represented a downside price objective and BTC/USD bears were only able to take the pair as low as the 8800.00 level.

Australian authorities consider that Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies could work as investment vehicles in the market. This is according to the New South Wales district court Judge Judith Gibson. He stated that virtual currencies are a recognized form of investments despite their volatility. Australian Judge Accept Bitcoin As A Recognized Form Of InvestmentAs reported by the local news site Wauchope Gazette, Judith Gibson stated that Bitcoin can be used as a security. This statement was part of a defamation case in which the NSW court established that the accusing party has to deposit $13,000 in a bank account that would be controlled by the court.
