3 Reasons Why Bitcoin Will Go Down in September

Published

on

why is Bitcoin going down

We all keep asking ourselves the same question, why is Bitcoin going down? The price of Bitcoin (BTC) at the moment of writing this, is headed in a direction contrary to what we had all hoped for after the slight recovery due to a decline catalyzed be the Goldman Sachs fake news of September 5th. BTC looked like it had dipped for the last time on the 12th of September when it was valued at around $6,250. It would then briefly rally to $6,580 leading many to believe a bottom had been reached.

One such individual who believed this theory was the ex-fund manager and billionaire investor, Michael Novogratz, who tweeted the following:

I think we put in a low yesterday [12th September]. retouched the highs of late last year and the point of acceleration that led to the massive rally/bubble… markets like to retrace to the breakout..we retraced the whole of the bubble.

Why is Bitcoin going down?

Firstly, on the 16th and 17th of September, Bitcoin experienced its lowest trade volumes since November last year. Further checking coinmarketcap, we find that the 24-hour trade volume on these two days was valued between $3.1 Billion and $3.2 Billion rather than its usual levels above $3.5 Billion.

The low trade volumes are an indicator that there is reduced trading and interest in the digital asset of BTC. Less interest equals a bear market. The 24-hour trade volume today has since increased to $3.9 Billion and Bitcoin is currently trading at $6,278.

Secondly, there is an Mt. Gox creditors meeting on the 26th of September. We all know that the liquidation of the entire Bitcoin stash to pay creditors of the exchange could literally drop BTC to levels unseen in the last 2 years. The BTC held by the Mt. Gox trustee is in the thousands (over 170,000)  and given current market conditions, it could tank the market.

The announcement of the September 26th meeting was made as follows.

“Meeting for reporting the status of property and submission deadline for a report under Article 125 of the Civil Rehabilitation Act: September 26, 2018”

Therefore, whatever information that will be reported on this date, could impact an already volatile market in a negative manner.

Thirdly, and keeping in mind that the crypto-market is still volatile, the deadline for an SEC verdict on the CBOE sponsored Bitcoin ETF is the 30th of September. Using past SEC announcements and decisions, if the verdict will be postponed, they will announce it before the 30th. The other side of the picture is if there is a rejection of the proposed rule change through the ETF application. In the case of the latter, the SEC will announce a rejection on the 30th.

The possibility of the CBOE sponsored Bitcoin ETF getting approved by the SEC are slim. This is why we have only explored the two possibilities highlighted above. If the SEC would embark on either of the two paths, the crypto market will respond with a knee-jerk reaction that might include panic selling.

In conclusion, and not wanting to sound too pessimistic, the next two weeks are probably one of the most uncertain weeks in the history of the value of BTC. All indicators point towards a bear market, but a crypto miracle is also a possibility before the 30th.

AAX Crypto Exchange Announces Massive Growth Numbers in August

AAX Exchange

As the crypto market continues to surge, new traders continue to enter the market on a daily basis.  One of the first questions that new traders have is where should they trade crypto.  While there are countless options for buying and selling digital assets, traders need to exercise extreme caution and perform due diligence to avoid scam exchanges as well as places that have limited or no volume.  While the main platforms such as Coinbase, Binance, and Bittrex will always have significant volume, their fees are known to be on the expensive side.  AAX, a next-generation cryptocurrency exchange with the lowest futures fees in the world, represents a compelling alternative that traders should consider.

Growth Announcement

A few of the most important issues to consider when deciding whether to use an exchange are the number of users and the volume.  On August 7, AAX announced that in a little over two weeks, the exchange doubled its user base bringing the grand total of registered users to over 200,000.  At this rate, AAX may surpass the million mark later this year which would be an incredible achievement and is most certainly due to a variety of factors including extremely low fees and revolutionary technology.

Institutional-Grade Exchange

When AAX decided to build its platform, it set out to meet the demands of both institutional and retail investors.  In order to achieve that goal, the exchange operates at the highest possible…
