Bitcoin (BTC) Bitcoin Cash (BCH) Ethereum (ETH) LiteCoin (LTC): Better, But Not There Quite Yet

Several weeks ago, June 27th to be precise, we penned a piece entitled, Where To From Here? Get Ready, where we noted the potential for, as well as anticipated, a large counter-trend rally throughout the entire cryptocurrency space.

At that time, we suspected that we may experience some further downside action, but that the potential for a large move into higher ground was nearing when we noted, “While the daily time-frames continue to portray potential for lower levels, not everything is bleak. When zooming-out to both the Weekly and perhaps more specifically, the Monthly time-frame/s, we’re nearing an important inflection point from which we suspect that the bleed lower subsides/pauses and in turn, results in a massive counter-trend rally that may begin as early as the next 2-3 weeks,” which has yet to play-out thus far despite the recent recovery in price/s.

While we now find ourselves in the third (3rd) week of such prognostication and although we’ve yet to witness the anticipated large counter-trend move thus far, we’re beginning to see some signs of health from a technical perspective throughout the landscape.

More specifically, as we can witness from the Daily charts below, Bitcoin; Bitcoin CashEthereum as well as LiteCoin have recently recaptured their 20 day SMA’s for the first time since early May, whereby those who have been following our work, are well aware of the emphasis that we’ve placed on the action surrounding the 20 day SMA for some time now with respect to short-term direction.

As we can observe from the Daily charts above, BTC; BCH; ETH as well as LTC have cleared their 20 day (yellow line) SMA’s and now appear to have their sights set on doing battle with their 50 day SMA (blue line).

Although further work is required and it’s a bit premature to declare the ‘Coast Clear’, the recent action is encouraging, at least from a short-term perspective. And, while we suspected that the large counter-trend move that we anticipated several weeks ago would commence from lower depths (BTC 5400/5000/4400), such has not been the case thus far.

Nevertheless, while our Timing may be off a bit (or perhaps not if the recent action does indeed morph into the beginnings of our anticipated large counter-trend rally), we continue to believe that a rapid/sharp/vicious move, that may catch many off guard/balance and travel to levels far beyond what many may anticipate, awaits in the offing.

In the meantime, all of the above aforementioned (BTC; BCH; ETH and LTC) have work to attend to at their 50 day SMA’s.

Thus, if at any time in the days/weeks ahead, Bitcoin (BTC) can clear the previously noted 6900 (Neckline of the inverted H&S) level and ‘stick’, such would likely be the trigger/signal for both Investors/Traders, that the party is about to begin. On the flip-side of the ledger, should BTC find its way back to the 6000 level and it ‘gives way’ and unable to hold, such development, should it materialize, would suggest yet another disappointing failure for higher levels.

While the overall action is indeed better, we’re not there quite yet.

Happy Trading~

Investors Beware: Another Large Bitcoin Crash Might Be Coming

The crypto prices have surged quite high in the last few months. Of course, their progress is nowhere near the one seen in 2017, but they appear to be getting there, one day at the time. However, things might not be as simple as that, and according to recent performance — it is more than possible that a major Bitcoin crash is incoming.

The fact is that cryptos saw a massive amount of growth in a very short period. Bitcoin itself more than doubled its price in only two months. Now, the rally is starting to crash in on itself, and the coin is already about $1,000 lower than last week. If such development does come to pass, a lot of people will experience quite large losses, although experienced investors might find some opportunities, and leverage in order to enhance their holdings’ long-term value.

For example, Bitcoin dominance is expected to crash very quickly, which will work in favor of quite a lot of altcoins. While this does not seem to be the best time to invest in BTC, altcoins are another story, and diversifying a portfolio now might end up being very profitable in days to come.

The crash that analysts are predicting right now comes as a direct consequence of all the hype that has been building up in…

Crypto bulls are back, that much is clear. The long-lasting, harsh crypto winter is gone, and the new era in digital currency sector opens up some rather interesting opportunities. With many more bull runs expected to come in months ahead, a lot of coins are likely to blow up and maybe even hit new all-time highs, although that still remains purely theoretical.

On the other hand, the fact is that numerous coins are seeing prices that were not achieved since early 2018, and the overall momentum remains bullish. With that in mind, even if new records do not come for a very long time — chances are that many of the coins will blow up enough for investors to see some serious gains in months to come. As a result, investing in some of these coins now might be a very profitable decision, for those who have the patience to wait a few months. Here are some of the projects believed to have the greatest potential to go big in the second half of 2019 and beyond.

1. TRON (TRX)

Putting TRON on the list should not really surprise anyone, as the project constantly comes up with new project updates, partnerships, and alike. It also constantly breaks records, as is becoming one of the biggest players in the dApp and smart contract development sector.

In the past few…

Can Crypto Credit Cards Disrupt the Fight Against Financial Crime?

It is commonly known that the world of finances has the biggest problem with the crime of all existing industries around the world. It has been so throughout history. While the financial world has evolved, so did the criminal activities, and they continue to be an issue. With the arrival of cryptocurrencies, many were hoping that financial crime might be disrupted. However, for now, at least, it appears that cryptos themselves cannot find a way to resolve issues such as international money laundering.

In fact, when it comes to money laundering, the crypto sector appears to be the weakest link, especially because of the nature of digital currencies. The anonymity that cryptos are being praised for means that anyone can get a payment from an unknown source from anywhere in the world. This method can then be used for financing drug trafficking, cyberattacks, terrorists, and more.

Until recently, it was not easy for bad actors to make use of cryptocurrencies obtained for illegal purposes. The number of merchants willing to accept the coins was low, and criminals were forced to find a way to exchange crypto into fiat currencies. However, this came with a set of issues, such as taking foreign exchange risks and then sending the money through wallets and exchanges to a banking system that would allow withdrawal. The banking account was the biggest obstacle here,…
