Dec 26, 2019 at 12:35 // News Undeniably, the downward move has become unavoidable as the coin continues to fall. The bulls have made two unsuccessful attempts at the $135 supply zone. After the first attempt, the ETH found support at $127.50 price level but the coin moved up for a second retest. The second retest was repelled as the coin fell to a low of $125. The downtrend may revisit the December 18 low of $120. It is anticipated that a break below $120 will result in the resumption of the downtrend. A successful breakdown will push Ethereum to a low of $100. We should keep our fingers crossed to see whether the $120 demand zone is going to hold. If the demand zone does hold, then Ethereum will resume its upward move. Ethereum Indicator Analysis The RSI period 14 level 33 indicates that the market has come close to the oversold region. Probably, we are reaching the point where selling will be overdone and suggesting bulls to take control of the price. The blue line EMA is resistance…Dec 26, 2019
It has been over 10 years since the creation of cryptocurrencies, and while clear narratives have emerged to justify their existence, none are decisively supported by data. For example, charts suggest bitcoin’s use case as a store of value is taking hold among some new investors, who have been shown to hold the asset through price run-ups. However, other metrics such as bitcoin’s correlation to gold suggest that, across the entire body of bitcoin investors, most are using the asset as something far different from “digital gold.” On ethereum, DeFi has made impressive gains, but the shape of that line and a broader decline in user numbers suggest that the “web 3.0” narrative is still in its infancy. Released today, the CoinDesk Quarterly Review surfaces the key data, trends and events shaping crypto markets, in a 45-slide presentation format. It evaluates three different use cases for crypto across more than 25 different data sets. The results of this analysis suggest a dominant narrative for bitcoin and alternative cryptocurrencies has yet to emerge. Readers of this report are introduced to key…Jan 23, 2020
Nov 13, 2019 at 09:31 // News The FBI thinks bitcoin can pose a general threat to the USA. During an inquiry on security threats fronting the US and the world at large, an American lawyer serving as a Director FBI Christopher Asher Wray affirmed this to the chief oversight agency dubbed Senate Homeland Security Committee and Government Affairs. On Tuesday November 5, 2019, the US politicians including senators, questioned top officials from the internal intelligence and security service of the U.S. and its chief federal law enforcement body FBI, Dept. of Homeland Security and the National Counterterrorism Center major queries on sensitive matters such as border security, counterterrorism plans, external interference in national polls, cybersecurity actions, and digital assets like Bitcoin, Libra and others. Willard Mitt Romney, an American political figure and entrepreneur serving as the junior senator from Utah since January this year, requested the security and intelligence constables whether the government should sit back and relax on Bitcoin transactions, cryptocurrencies dealings and their rising challenges and effects they cause to law implementation’s anti-terrorist happenings.

Twitter Facebook reddit Pinterest Hacker News LinkedIn Tumblr Google+ VKontakte Bitcoin could be the most valuable coin, it is also synonymous with price volatility and unparalleled levels of unpredictability. However, it is emerging that Bitcoin is, after all, a cyclic asset, just like any other tradable instrument and its price movements can be predicted using ordinary tools like Moving Averages and Fibonacci retracement technical indicators. Bitcoin Prices are Cyclic According to a crypto analyst and Bitcoin trader, a lot of traders could be missing millions as a cost of basing their trading decisions on noise. In his assessment, traders are missing out on patterns that Bitcoin has been printing in the last four years. Taking to Twitter, the defiantly confident trader said: “The precision of Bitcoin is a beautiful thing. Do people really still think this is risky? BTC does the same exact thing every 4 year cycle while everyone misses millions because they listen to fake noise. Only the strong & smart survive here.” But traders are not be blamed. Within the BTC trading cycles, it is not rare…Dec 7, 2019
Bitcoin (BTC/USD) depreciated early in today’s Asian session as the pair weakened to the 9195.49 area during yesterday’s session. BTC/USD gained about 29% in January, a stark contrast to its -2.6% performance in December. The pair’s recent appreciation has traders focused on the psychologically-important 10000 figure, but before it can test that level it must get above some areas of technical resistance. The 9765.93 area represents the 38.2% retracement of the appreciation from 3128.89 to 13868.44, and Stops are likely in place above this area. The 9532.39 area represents the 38.2% retracement of the 19891.99 – 3128.89 range, and Stops are likely above this area. Other important levels include the 9269.57 area, a level that represents the 50% retracement of the 4670.69 to 13868.44, while the 9389.28 area represents the 61.8% appreciation of the move from 6620.61 to 13868.44. Additional upside levels of technical resistance include the 9427.66, 9816.32, and 9887.63 areas. The recent upswing in BTC/USD also has established new areas of technical support and these include the 8835.33, 8642.67, and 8542.45 areas. Moreover, additional buying pressure is expected…Feb 1, 2020
Crypto trader and Twitter commentator, Josh Rager, has pointed out that with all the bullish news around Ethereum, $200 may be a total steal right now. The deal of the century may be staring back at you We’ll look back in two years and talk about how sub-$200 $ETH was a gift pic.twitter.com/WhA0Y2tJAV — Josh Rager (@Josh_Rager) February 5, 2020 Ethereum bulls can rejoice now that ETH has finally crossed back above the psychological $200 level after 5 long months. Veteran trader Josh Rager has made the salient point that at $200, ETH is still down -85.88% from it’s January 2018 all-time high of $1,417.38, and could be a great buy long-term. Given the purge of many of the weaker projects from the platform over the crypto winter, the astonishing rise of DeFi, and the rapid pace of development on Ethereum 2.0, the #crypto seems primed for a moonshot. Apart from the technical progress that’s being made, DeFi is creating a massive demand for ETH itself, which is the underlying collateral behind all of the DeFi smart contracts, like MakerDAO,…Feb 6, 2020
Bitcoin has managed to hold above the $7,000 level until the end of the year but could turn bearish in the short term the new year begins. Tether price action has been weak since July 2019 and it is not a good sign for BTC. USDT and Bitcoin Demand Correlation Tether has always been a point of contention in the crypto community. It has provided massive liquidity for markets but has also been the subject of disparagement for the potential to manipulate prices and fake Bitcoin demand. It has been observed that Tether prices below a dollar are bearish for Bitcoin. USDT has been bearish since the market contraction began in July. Market analyst Josh Olszewicz has noted the correlation and remains bearish on BTC. “i really cant get bullish again until $USDT > $1. since July, $USDT < $1 hasn’t been bullish” i really cant get bullish again until $USDT > $1 since July, $USDT < $1 hasn’t been bullish pic.twitter.com/B91o7art5J — Josh Olszewicz (@CarpeNoctom) January 1, 2020 His reasoning is that it represents people exiting out of USDT…Jan 2, 2020
A bitcoin bullwhale that is currently longing with circa 20,00 BTC ($144 million) and is minus $11 million on his Bitfinex long, has revealed what metrics he takes into account when making price predictions. So now that we established TA is largely useless (except as a sentiment indicator), the next question is: what kind of analysis IS useful? Let’s start with quant models and statistic-based metrics.https://t.co/GFaijCKCBC — Joe007 [I identify as recovering whale] (@J0E007) December 21, 2019 Quant models. By that presumably he means stock to flow, colloquially known as the 21 million bitcoin limit. More technically, it is the ratio of new supply to current supply and how that might change. For bitcoin, it currently changes at circa 4% new supply, with this to fall to 1.80%. At that point, this starts moving to the hardest money known to man territory. That’s because bitcoin is kind of an artificial creation with fixed code rules that do not need to obey the laws of chemical formation like gold. Indeed some say space gold mining can reduce the value of the…Dec 22, 2019
Bitcoin’s recent bout of sideways trading around the $8,600 region has resulted in a massive bear-favoring movement, with BTC now plummeting down towards the lower-$8,000 region. This movement has completely altered the sentiment amongst investors, with many analysts now claiming that the crypto will see significantly further losses as $9,200 begins to look increasingly like a mid-term top. One prominent analyst who previously predicted multiple major Bitcoin movements seen throughout 2019 is claiming that BTC is now entering a buy zone, and accumulation trends seem to suggest that hundreds of thousands of investors are growing macro bullish on BTC. Bitcoin Dips Towards $8,350, But Investors Keep Accumulating At the time of writing, Bitcoin is trading down just under 4% at its current price of $8,360, which marks a notable decline from its daily highs of over $8,700 that were set yesterday. Prior to the overnight drop experienced by the cryptocurrency, many analysts and investors had believed that the crypto would see an extension of its upwards momentum, as the bull trend seen throughout 2020 has appeared to mark a massive…Jan 24, 2020
