Twitter Facebook reddit Pinterest Hacker News LinkedIn Tumblr Google+ VKontakte Bulls fight tooth and nail to hold Bitcoin above $8,000. The $7,000 range is beckoning even as Bitcoin’s technical levels align in the favor of the sellers. Bitcoin spent the entire weekend battling to reverse last week’s bearish action. The losses from the resistance at $8,464 had found refuge above the 61.8% retracement level taken between the levels $8,464 and $6,849. The recovery move that followed saw Bitcoin stepped above $8,000. More bullish action tackled the resistance at $8,200. However, sustaining the bullish momentum became extremely hard, giving way for the ongoing retraction. The most-traded cryptoasset is teetering at $8,091 after the support at $8,100 failed to hold. The momentum is bound to continue towards $8,000 based on the trend displayed by the RSI. The indicator’s recovery fell short of the overbought region reminiscent of the rejection at $8,200. The downward sloping motion signals increasing bearish action. In other words, Bitcoin is likely to break the support $8,000 and return into the $7,000 range.

Apple reported revenue of $58.3 billion for its fiscal second quarter, falling below its initial Q2 guidance but surpassing Wall Street’s muted expectations. AAPL stock is down in the pre-market. Apple Inc (NASDAQ: AAPL) announced on Thursday its earnings for its fiscal Q2. Earnings per share (EPS) in the second quarter of fiscal 2020 stood, therefore, at $2.55. That represents a 4% rise from the same period a year ago and is also better than analysts’ expectations. Revenue also came in above market estimates, rising 1% year on year to $58.3 billion. This is mostly boosted through higher sales of wearables and services. In the meantime, iPhone revenue decreased by 7% to $29 billion amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Mac and iPad sales were also down. CFO Luca Maestri said that iPhone performance will be worse, on a year-to-year basis, in the June quarter than it was in the March quarter. He said: “On iPhone and Wearables, we expect a year-over-year revenue performance to worsen in the June quarter, relative to the March quarter. On iPad and Mac, we expect the…May 1, 2020
The head of the nonprofit organization behind Facebook’s Libra digital currency has said the company is committed to launching it and clearing regulatory hurdles. Perez: “We don’t want to be like BlackRock” In an interview with French news magazine Les Echos on Sept. 12, Bertrand Perez, director general of the Libra Association, said the token should appear in the second half of 2020. The comments came the day France’s economy and finance minister said the country would refuse to allow Libra to operate within its borders. As Cointelegraph reported, concerns over financial stability fuelled the resentment, with Bruno Le Maire appearing to wish to shape a hostile European Union policy towards Libra. According to Perez, however, Facebook does not wish to create new supplies of money via the token. He drew comparisons to BlackRock, the world’s largest asset manager, saying the social media giant did not want to compete in that market. “We don’t want to become a new BlackRock,” he told Les Echos, continuing: “That’s why these concerns about the destabilizing effect our reserve currency could have on central…Sep 13, 2019

Jan 08, 2020 at 13:20 // News BCH successfully made a breakthrough as it battles the $240 price level. This impressive upward move has been consistent since January 3. On January 6, the bulls were temporarily halted to take a pause. In other words, BCH is facing resistance at $240. The bulls have to keep on with the current bullish momentum to push BCH upward. There is a tendency for BCH to slide beneath if the bullish momentum dries up. Expectantly, BCH is likely to retest the $280 resistance, if buyers continue their bullish run.
