- High: $7414.85 USD
- Low: $7281.42 USD

“I think then you will have something that will end up being somewhere around $20,000-$40,000” Marc Lasry, co-founder of Avenue Capital Group on CNBC regarding Bitcoin price.
The BTC/USD pair is currently in the mood of setting a short-term bullish flag pattern where the support slightly above the $7300 level, as can be observed from the chart. Bitcoin (BTC) has been gradually progressing towards the green from 14th July 2018, and the BlackRock news seems to have strengthened it on 16th July when the price surged upwards to a little above $6730 USD.
At the time of writing on 19th July 2018, the price action of the BTC/USD pair shows an uptrend even while it keeps consolidating the position. At the time of writing, as can be seen from the chart, the price of Bitcoin shows $7380.02 USD. The moving average (blue line) marking at 6695.1433 indicates the price, at least for the time being, is most likely to move upward.
Yesterday, the weak support at the $7400 level had failed to gain strength and had thus required lower corrections. This had made the space a little more volatile with the formation of slight bearish trends today some time. The corrections will most likely continue until the price settles strongly above the major resistance line near the $7400 level. Meanwhile, the hourly MACD shows that the crypto coin is placed slightly in the Buy region.
Bitcoin Cash (BCH/USD)
- High: $831.2 USD
- Low: $803.4 USD
- Major Resistance Level: $900
- Hourly MACD: Placed slightly in the Sell region.
Holding onto the green candles till 17th July 2018 from 13th July 2018, the BCH/USD pair had shown bearish signals yesterday. At the time of writing, however, the price of Bitcoin Cash (BCH) shows $824.9 USD and is sporting a small green candle. As of now, it can be said that the pair is testing the $800 support region.
On 17th July, the Bitcoin Cash price had reached above the $850 resistance against the US dollar. A high had formed neared the $890 level with an eye on the $900 resistance level. The chances of continuing in the upwards direction for the BCH/USD pair depends on how it strengthens on the $800 support line, currently.
The moving average (blue line), at the time of writing, marks at 757.2333. This also indicates that the pressure has bordered on the sellers that have placed the crypto coin slightly in the Sell region. If the position strengths then, it will again create a pressure on the buyers.
Both Bitcoin (BTC) and Bitcoin Cash (BCH) are correcting their positions against the US Dollar at the time of writing and is trying to create a stronger support line.

What is blockchain technology?
Blockchain technology was first introduced as a supportive technology for Bitcoin. A blockchain is a simple, unchangeable and un-hackable digital ledger that holds transactions in little blocks attached to a chain. The transaction is duplicated and distributed across the entire network of systems on the blockchain, making it available for everyone on the network to see.
Each block in the chain contains various transactions which are recorded on the participant ledger every time a transaction takes place. The database is decentralised and is managed by multiple participants known as Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT).
Although blockchain technology was birthed from Bitcoin and was widely adopted for the use of cryptocurrencies, the way it works and its security has made…
