- Bitcoin price slashes a chunk of the gains accrued since the weekend trading; sabotaging recovery above $10,000.
- BTC/USD is in the hands of the sellers but consolidation is likely between $9,400 and $9,600.
Bitcoin price turned heads earlier this week with its majestic rise to highs above the critical $10,000. In fact, the crypto extended the gains above $10,400. However, the price did not stay up for long because of an immediate reversal. In both the Asian and European sessions on Monday, BTC/USD held on to the support above $10,000. Unfortunately, the tables were turned during the European session as Bitcoin tanked to $9,523.
At the time of writing, Bitcoin is trading at $9,487 after losing 0.35% on the day. The trading is likely to remain bearish throughout the Asian session and the European session. It is essential that the bulls reclaim the position above $9,500. This would allow them to focus on higher levels towards $10,000. On the flip side, continued declines under the short term support at $9,400 could easily open the Pandora box. Breakdown towards $9,000 is not out of the picture because the losses could also extend into the $8,000’s range.

The double-top pattern I discussed yesterday is negatively impacting Bitcoins’ price. The losses in the last 24 hours show that Bitcoin was not technically ready for the breakout above $10,000. Fundamentals in terms of volume were also not supportive and that could be the reason for the reversal under $9,500.
The prevailing technical picture remains drab, especially with the RSI retreat fast towards the average (50). Consolidation above between $9,400 and $9,600 is only possible if the RSI stays above 50. Meanwhile, key support areas include $9,400, the ascending trendline as well as $9,200.

Analysts expect 2020 to be a relatively smooth year for the stock market despite many risks to their predictions. The presidential election, the trade war and wage growth are among the largest risks to the market. The strength of the U.S. housing market remains a subject of debate, but home prices look likely to level off in 2020. The economic outlook for 2020 is unique, as it depends on several “what-if” scenarios. That’s made it difficult for analysts to take a firm position on where they see the U.S. housing market, the Dow Jones, and the economy heading. The result has been an echoing refrain among analysts: Everything should work out, but there’s also a chance it wont. Morgan Stanley Uneasy About Trade War Risks Analysts at Morgan Stanley see “calmer waters ahead” as trade tension dies down and the Fed maintains its accommodative policies. Chief Economist Chetan Ahya is optimistic about the global economy, saying that although the current economic expansion has persisted for over a decade, “interruptions” like the trade war with China and Europe’s debt crisis have…Dec 27, 2019
For someone lacking interest in Bitcoin, Peter Schiff has a funny way of showing it. As the price leading digital assets is dropping today, the gold bug has once again commented that such moves are evidence of a “pump and dump” narrative in the market. Schiff seems to think that there is only room for one hard form of money on the planet. Despite its similarities to gold in terms of monetary policy, the billionaire investor remains unimpressed by Bitcoin. Bitcoin Price Plummets, Schiff Cries “Pump and Dump” In the last couple of hours, Bitcoin and other digital assets shed billions of dollars off their total market capitalisation.

China continues to try to shape the coronavirus narrative, and not just within its own borders. Beijing has upped its intelligence efforts in the U.S. in an attempt to deflect blame for the COVID-19 pandemic.

Q1 2020 hedge fund letters, conferences and more China seeks to control coronavirus narrative in U.S. Sources reportedly told Fox News that China is boosting its spy game on U.S. soil to try to manipulate the coronavirus narrative. Intelligence officials interviewed by the news outlet said Beijing’s main focus is to control the narrative inside the U.S. and push blame in any direction other than on itself. One source said the American public will demand a financial response in connection with the pandemic, “if not outright reparations in the many billions.” A retired Pentagon officer said China’s media operations have shifted slightly from their usual focus on IP and technology theft. The source said it’s about leaking false information within the U.S. It isn’t just China’s…Apr 22, 2020
The Ethereum (ETH) price could explode to record highs on the backs of an optimistic accumulation behavior. Data provided by cryptocurrency market analysts at Santiment shows that miners are now holding more ETH rewards than they did three months back. At 1.69 million ETH, which roughly equals about $300 million, the cumulative balance of all Ethereum mining pools is now sitting atop a new all-time high. Miners’ ETH holdings are reaching its all-time high | Source: Santiment Maksim Balashevich, the founder of Santiment, wrote in a note that miners’ accumulative strategy tends to show their high confidence level in the project, adding that their hoarding of the token is likely to continue heading into February. He also noted that a price drop could prompt miners to offload their existing holdings onto the spot market. Excerpts: “Major miner sell-offs have often been followed by quick and significant price corrections historically. The last time the network’s miners held on to this much ETH was back in late October of 2019 when a drop below $170 prompted some to offload their holdings. Barring major…Jan 31, 2020

The Patriots lost to the Dolphins on Sunday. New England doesn’t have a bye in the playoffs for the first time since 2009. Its dynasty seems all but officially over. The New England Patriots entered Week 17 with a 97 percent chance of getting their tenth consecutive postseason bye. They were 17-point favorites over the Miami Dolphins, who hadn’t won at Gillette Stadium in over a decade. All victories in the NFL are earned. But if there was one result that seemed foregone before Sunday’s games kicked off, it was certainly that the Patriots would take care of business against the Dolphins with a first-round bye and home-field advantage on the line. Wrong. Slumping Toward The Playoffs Miami came from behind to beat New England 27-24 on Sunday, courtesy of Ryan Fitzpatrick’s touchdown pass to Mike Gesicki with 24 seconds remaining. It was the culmination of a hard-fought game between two teams who know each other exceedingly well. But any notion that Miami’s win over New England was a fluke ignores its statistical context and the latter’s struggles over the final…Dec 30, 2019
Kobe Bryant received a hero’s welcome on Sunday night. LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers praised him during and after their win. With every cheer, it becomes less likely Bryant will be held accountable for a 2003 rape accusation. The Los Angeles Lakers beat the Atlanta Hawks 122-101 on Sunday night, cementing their place atop the NBA standings. The loudest cheers at Staples Center, though, had nothing to do with the Lakers’ current record of 11-2, nor their long-anticipated future as championship contenders. Instead, fans saved their most fawning praise for Kobe Bryant, who sat courtside and received raucous applause from the time he took his seat to when he left with several minutes remaining in the game. But Lakers faithful weren’t the only ones who made Sunday’s contest more about the past than anything else. The basketball world’s selective nostalgia concerning Bryant extends to his playing peers and the media, too, who continue willfully ignoring the incident that should make him a public pariah. Has the NBA Forgotten About the Koby Bryant Rape Allegation? Bryant wasn’t convicted of…Nov 18, 2019
Microsoft wants to create a new cryptocurrency that’s still mined using PoW–except replacing expensive power-intense mining rigs with basic human energy. If that sounds a little strange, you should take a dive deep into the details of the patent published yesterday filed by Microsoft. It’s called: “Cryptocurrency system using body activity data.” Microsoft’s Human-Mined Cryptocurrency – Creepy or Cool? According to the patent, Microsoft’s cryptocurrency would make use of body activity data. This would allow individuals to mine crypto and replace the need for ASICs. It sounds a little other-worldly and, honestly, borderline creepy. But if you can get past the idea of wiring humans up to some kind of server tracking their energy output, it could be a sustainable way of mining crypto without damaging the environment. So, how does it work? As per the patent, Microsoft states that ‘human body activity’ needed to mine cryptocurrency could be very simple. We’re not talking about forcing tribes of gym-goers to run 20k here. In fact, it could be as little as: a brain wave or body heat emitted from the…Mar 27, 2020
