After last week’s dive to lower depths, whereby the entire cryptocurrency universe was treated to yet another sharp leg lower, there has been little to no meaningful bounce out of the recent lows, thus far.

While we certainly expected/suspected a more vibrant bounce in order to work-off the short-term oversold conditions, we’ve yet to witness such action and in fact, the entire cryptocurrency landscape appears content in consolidating the recent leg lower via side-ways grind.

As a result, we’re starting to see numerous names, both large-cap as well as some of the Altcoins, beginning to carve-out inverted pennant formations as we can observe from the charts below.

Although such formations remain in development and have as of yet to break either topside or to the downside, it’s evident that the formation of such pattern continues to tightly coil where we suspect that it’s only a matter of time before these pennants witness resolution.

That being said, let’s take a quick look at the following technical posture of but a handful of names that continue to display the inverted pennants.

BITCOIN

BITCOIN CASH

ETHEREUM

LITECOIN

CARDANO

TRON

As we can witness from the above charts, each sports the inverted pennant formation. While we’re not specifically isolating this phenomenon to those solely referenced above as we could all but showcase another several dozen that remain in an identical technical posture, due to time and space constraints, we wanted to provide readers of Global Coin Report merely a visualization of what is taking place throughout the landscape.

In addition to the developing short-term inverted pennant formations throughout awaiting resolution, it’s quite obvious that bearish conditions remain from a cyclical perspective within the context of a much larger secular bull when you zoom-out the time-frames to a monthly technical glance.

Nevertheless, both investors/traders may want to continue to monitor the action of the here-and-now, which is suggestive that we are going to witness a resolution in one direction or the other in the days ahead.

While we suspect that resolution favors a breach out of the pennants to the downside, as investors/traders, we must always defer to the action of the market itself and leave our biases at the door and be prepared for any and all potential outcomes via proper risk management mitigation measures.

Therefore, for those short-term traders, continue to keep things on a tight leash and honor Your Stops, while for those longer-term investors, patience and discipline remains in order until and or unless the storm clouds subside awaiting the dust to settle.

Happy Trading!!

Stepping off the rollercoaster: Why I’ve fallen out of love with Bitcoin

The very word Bitcoin has almost become synonymous with that of cryptocurrency. It’s basically just a medium of conducting digital transactions – it’s a virtual currency and one of many. So how has it taken on a definition of its own and asserted itself as a leader in the digital financial ecosystem?

Bitcoin has been crowned king of altcoins, probably because it was one of the earliest and most successful of its kind. The trendsetter has ushered in a wave of cryptocurrencies built on decentralised P2P networks and has inspired a growing number of followers and spinoffs. But is Bitcoin struggling to keep up with the newcomers who have made considerable developments to the stability, security, and usability of the crypto world?

The supporting case for Bitcoin has been a clear one. Its pioneering infrastructure has situated it in a position of dominance in the altcoin realm. Bitcoin has a proven usage case as a store of value. Having existed over 8 years without failure, it has a large lead over most altcoins and has withstood the test of time as younger counterparts join the market. However, it seems to be on a downward slope, or at the very least, not progressing at the speed of the market.

In May this…

While Bitcoin (BTC) continues to hover around the magical 10,000 price level, altcoins continue to fight an uphill battle.  Simply put, hopes of a future bull run continue to diminish as Bitcoin maintains its dominance.  One school of thought is that a few altcoins will survive and flourish, but which ones are anyone’s guess.  That being said, it’s hard to go wrong picking against the top coins like Ethereum (ETH), Ripple (XRP), Litecoin (LTC), and EOS.  These projects have managed to find a foothold in the market and have a better chance than most of staying there.  While traders wait for their positions to increase in value, one opportunity that may be worth looking at is initiating a collateralized debt position.

What is a Cryptocurrency CDP?

In traditional terms, a CDP is essentially putting up collateral in order to receive a loan against the deposited amount.  There are several examples of this in our day to day lives.  Auto title loans from large companies like TitleMax are extremely popular with consumers.  Consumers are essentially able to use their car as collateral in exchange for a cash payment which can then be used for whatever needs the consumer has.  The consumer can continue using their car as long as debt payments are made.

The same concept applies to cryptocurrency CDPs.  Consumers are able to put up crypto tokens, such as…

I’m sure all of us remember the cryptocurrency glory days of 2017 and early 2018.  It was one of the biggest bull runs in history and created incredibly wealth for quite a few early entrants.  Unfortunately, for most of us, those gains have most likely been wiped out during the altcoin apocalypse.  The truth is that traders probably thought a bit too highly of their trading abilities when the reality was that anyone could have thrown a dart at a board and ended up making money.

As markets mature (and the crypto market is definitely maturing) it becomes more and more difficult to generate alpha.  In that regard, it’s similar to traditional financial markets.  I can remember trading during my high school days.  It was the late 90s and right in the middle of the dot.com boom.  Eventually, however, the euphoria fades away and reality hits hard.  Now, it’s become rather difficult to actually trade profitably which has given way to the rise of hedge funds.

Hedge funds are investment funds that pool capital from accredited and/or institutional investors and invest in a variety of assets, often with extremely complex portfolio-construction and risk management techniques.  The professionals employed by hedge funds are the best of the best and have spent years honing their craft.  That is why they’re able to make the millions of dollars that they normally…
