In Bitcoin (BTC), we have seen another sharp and sudden dip over the past 24 hours that was very quickly bought back up by traders pressing a continuation of the recent trending action. The real question now is this: what does this say about the sustainability of the trend now in place over the past three weeks?

As we take a close look today at Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH), we want to analyze this recent dip and how it appears in the context of the past week of action, which includes another similar dip and recovery.

Bitcoin (BTC)

Price Analysis

  • High: $8216
  • Low: $7640
  • Major Resistance Level: $8,500
  • Hourly MACD: Continued Accumulation

As we have noted, Bitcoin (BTC) has been out in front of the cryptocurrency complex during this recent bout of strength. There should be little doubt that this is still the leader in the space.

As we watch this recent upward trend evolve and mature, we have seen several sharp shakeouts that have, in each case, offering traders a new opportunity to join the trend on the long side in BTC.

However, in each recent case, the reaction leg has fallen short of testing the all-important 200-day simple moving average that hovers just above at slightly less than $8500.

At this point, it would appear that a decisive break above that level in coming days may well unleash a brand new test of the $10,000 level in Bitcoin (BTC).

Ethereum (ETH)

Price Analysis

  • High: $471
  • Low: $427
  • Major Resistance Level: $500
  • Hourly MACD: Mild Oversold Reading

One of the elements that we have been tracking closely in the chart for Ethereum (ETH) is how it responds to tests of a trend line that captures the hourly chart lows put in place during the swings and pivots that have appeared on the chart since late June.

Over the past 24 hours, we may well be seeing that perspective put to the test with a break of that trendline.

This will call into question whether Ethereum (ETH) is able to stay with Bitcoin (BTC) and many of the other stronger coins during this bounce, or if we are instead to see a divergence in the space with a more striking sense of lagging action for Ethereum (ETH) and its associated compadres.

At this point, it’s far too early to say, particularly as this breach of the slope that defines the pivot lows achieved over the past month may well be a shakeout or a head fake to the downside before a more decisive move higher to test key resistance at the $500 level.

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…

Cryptocurrency Collateralized Debt Positions Are Growing in Popularity

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…
