Bitcoin (BTC) Ethereum (ETH) LiteCoin (LTC) Bitcoin Cash (BCH) Technical Analysis – Bear Market Conditions Persist

Published

Bitcoin

For the past six (6) months it’s been no secret that Bitcoin HODLers have found the environment both challenging as well as the footing slippery as prices throughout have continued to slide the slope lower.

This past weekend, both investors/traders were treated to yet another leg lower on large volume, which produced a sharp and violent move to the south-side and in the process, taking-out/breaching some very important short-term support levels across the board.

While recent price action has produced short-term oversold conditions and we can perhaps anticipate some pause as well as some price relief in the days ahead, we must remember that oversold conditions can and often do, become more oversold just as overbought conditions can often lead to further price appreciation beyond what many investors/traders expect/anticipate.

Thus, while we certainly suspect that both investors/traders within the crypto sphere will be treated to some pause and or short-term price relief in the days ahead, we must always defer our opinions and biases to the action of the market as Price is the only thing that Pays.

That being said, let’s take a look at the charts to see what may be in store moving forward as well as some levels to monitor in order to navigate the landscape without detonating the triplines that litter the field.

After touching down at the 7K level a couple of weeks ago and subsequently grinding higher, Bitcoin (BTC) was unable to clear our previously noted 7730 level and ‘stick’. Once that became apparent, and it was rather quite obvious as BTC attempted to clear the hurdle on multiple occasions only to fail, such was the signal that the likelihood of lower prices were in the offing, which has now played-out.

Moving forward, both investors/traders may want to monitor the following levels for further clues/evidence with respect to direction.

If, at any time in the days ahead, BTC can go top-side of the 7040-7060 zone and perhaps, more importantly, can clear the noted 7260 figure (former support now turned resistance), such development/s, should they materialize, would release some short-term pressure. On the opposite side of the ledger, potential short-term support can be found at the 6425 level and should such level ‘give-way’ at any time in the days/weeks ahead, a date with the February lows at 6K would certainly be in the cards.

Much like BTC, Ethereum (ETH) found itself having trouble with our noted 615-630 zone and was unable to jump the creek, which promptly turned the tables southbound as we can witness from the Chart below:

As we can observe above, despite several attempts at clearing the 615-630 zone and incapable of holding, proved too much for ETH as it promptly reversed course for lower depths.

Moving forward, short-term potential resistance can be found at the 538 as well as the 575-600 zone, while potential support resides at 480-500 area. Should the 480-500 area ‘give-way’ at any point in the days/weeks ahead, the probability of a move into the 350-400 zone becomes a viable possibility.

Moving on to LiteCoin, despite its short-term oversold posture, LTC remains extremely vulnerable as it has violated all of its potential short-term support levels and is hanging by a thread. While a bounce may be forthcoming in the days ahead, it appears that a date with the 80-85 zone is indeed its ultimate destination down the road.

As we can witness above, LTC has taken-out our noted 109-112 zone and now finds itself with little support or net beneath its feet. While a bounce into the 115-120 zone may relieve some short-term pressure, we suspect that the 80-85 zone may provide its best line of defense (potential support) moving forward.

Last but not least, let’s take a look at Bitcoin Cash below to see what it may have in store for both investors/traders moving forward.

As we can observe from the chart above, while the recent move lower in BCH was sharp and deep accompanied with volume, it did not hit nor violate the May lows located at the 868-870 level.

Thus, moving forward, both investors/traders may want to pay particular attention to the 840-870 zone as well as the February low 750 area for potential support, while the 1000-1035, as well as the 1075-1085 zone, provide likely headwinds/resistance above.

While market participants may enjoy some price relief from short-term oversold conditions in the days ahead, we must remember that bear market conditions persist throughout the entire cryptocurrency universe and as investors/traders, we have to leave our opinions/biases at the door and take our cues from the action.

If one is trading this environment, be sure to keep positions on a tight leash and honor Your Stops as risk management is priority number one, as always. For those longer-term investors, patience and discipline are in order and you may want to continue to monitor your favorites for suitable entry and or adding to existing positions.

Happy Trading!!

Bitcoin is Steadily Changing Our Lives in the Greatest Ways Possible

Published

Bitcoin

Bitcoin has already brought our world some of the most incredible innovation we have seen, but the best is yet to come. 

Bitcoin, cryptocurrencies, blockchain. While often regarded as mere industry buzzwords are actually the fundamentals of something far greater. Things like borderless currency, decentralized business, open-source software, collaborative technology, shared computing. These are just a scant few of the underlying principles that are taking our technology and daily lives into the future. Should these sciences be embraced, it will be a bright future indeed. 

It has become ever more transparent that humans today are living in fear. If nothing else, 2020 has brought the tidal wave of anxiety and distrust that many live in the shadow of, to a terrifying apex. We are all just waiting for the crash. While some flock to literature, or social media, or their favored news outlet, others flock to exchanges. Using platforms like the newbie friendly Bitvavo to place their bets on the future, on what could be, and what already largely is. Bitcoin and the technology that underpins its innermost workings are a preparation for a better tomorrow. An investment in a future that is already changing our lives today.

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…

3 Reasons Why WISE Token Could Be a Massive Winner in 2021

WISE token

After working in proprietary trading for over a decade, I decided to transition to crypto in early 2017.  Although crypto is significantly different from traditional capital markets, I managed to successfully find a niche for successful and opportunistic trading.  While 2017 was the perfect time to get involved, the past few years have proven to be a bit more challenging as far as generating ROI.

Cryptocurrency traders have spent the past several years searching far and wide for the next big winner.  While the market as a whole hasn’t been very bull friendly, one specific area that appears to be gaining traction is decentralized finance, more commonly known as DeFi.  This area generally refers to the digital assets and financial smart contracts, protocols, and decentralized applications (DApps) built on Ethereum.  The reason why so many crypto entrepreneurs are flocking to this space is that it allows them to create traditional financial vehicles in a decentralized network, outside the meddlesome control of foreign governments.

One extremely popular DeFi project is Chainlink (LINK) which is a decentralized oracle network that provides real-world data to smart contracts on the blockchain.  Chainlink has seen its token price increase by more than 300% year-to-date.    Another impressive project in the space is Kyber Network (KNC) which has seen its token soar from $0.20 at the start of the year to more than $1.60 at present.  Kyber Network’s on-chain liquidity protocol allows decentralized tokens swaps to be…
