Bitcoin (BTC) Ethereum (ETH) Price Analysis: Here’s What May Signal a Run to $10,000

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.

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~

BTC Surged Again as A Safe Haven Asset During Global Tensions

  • India – China Border Conflict

After weeks of squabbling and brawling along their long-disputed border, hundreds of Indian and Chinese soldiers engaged in a deadly clash Monday in a river valley that’s part of the region of Ladakh last week. Troops had massed on both sides of the border in recent months in the northern India region of Ladakh and the southwestern Chinese region of Aksai Chin, causing global concerns of a potential escalation between the two.

  • North and South Korea Clash

Last Tuesday, North Korea destroyed the liaison office it jointly operates with South Korea in the city of Kaesong, just north of the demilitarized zone that separates the two countries. 

North Korea also said it would send troops to now-shuttered joint cooperation sites on its territory, reinstall guard posts and resume military drills at front-line areas in a violation of separate 2018 deals with South Korea. Jeong said South Korea will take “immediate, swift and corresponding” steps to any North Korean provocation.

The tensions grown in Asia and the potential “second wave” of coronavirus in the United States may add more difficulties to the global economic recovery. Thus, Bitcoin, as a safe haven asset, attracts more investors to…

Cryptocurrency Fraud is Evolving; Bitcoin ATMs Mitigate Risk

Cryptocurrency Fraud is Evolving
READ LATER - DOWNLOAD THIS POST AS PDF

In one of the more overlooked aspects of the crypto ecosystem, it appears that the bulk of illicit activities are shifting from hacks and thefts to cryptocurrency fraud and scams.

CipherTrace, the crypto-surveillance, and analysis firm released a report at the end of Q4 2019 that revealed hacks and thefts had decreased by 66 percent in 2019 while fraud and misappropriation of funds surged by 533 percent. And beneath the COVID-19 hysteria of 2020, hacks in the crypto sector have been eerily isolated. 

Outside of a few exploited flaws in P2P exchanges and DeFi flash loan vulnerabilities, the headline-grabbing hacks of exchanges for hundreds of millions of dollars have been absent so far this year. Is the industry due for another massive hack, or are stringent KYC/AML processes, regulatory crackdowns, better security practices, and blockchain surveillance working? 

KYC/AML Improvements Are Reducing the Appeal of Crypto Exchange Laundering 

2020 is far removed from the no-KYC wild west days of the early-mid 2010s where anonymous altcoin casinos preponderated and the Dark Underbelly of Cryptocurrency Markets thrived. 

Today, bitcoin and the crypto ecosystem is becoming institutionalized with a surfeit of derivatives (e.g., options, futures, perp swaps, etc.) available on…
