Bitcoin (BTC) Ethereum (ETH) Price Analysis – Is This a Giftwrapped Pullback?

In the context of the recent rally across the cryptocurrency complex, we have seen sustained inflows and strength for a number of large market cap coins, chief among them clearly being Bitcoin.

However, yesterday evening, we saw news related to regulators once again stepping up to deny the existence of a Bitcoin ETF. As technicians, whenever we see robust trending action, and that action is interrupted by a new headline-driven input, we often salivate about the potential opportunity.

You see, headlines never change trends.

Today, we’re going to take a close look at the charts for Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH) with that in mind.

Bitcoin (BTC)

Price Analysis:

  • High: $7932.00
  • Low: $7852.10
  • Major Resistance Level: $8633
  • Hourly MACD: Sudden Pullback in Play

As noted above, Bitcoin (BTC) has been in fine form of late, ramping higher by over 30% – and over $40 billion in market cap – in just over the last couple weeks.

Key resistance at the coin’s 200-day simple moving average certainly represents a key stumbling block, but that’s not our focus here today.

Instead, we’re taking a look at the fact that the market is pulling back sharply in reaction to headlines that one may see as somewhat predictable given the bearing of the SEC thus far on the concept of the Bitcoin ETF.

When you see a technically strong market reacting against that new trend in response to headlines that come likely as something other than a true surprise, you have to ask yourself just exactly why the universe is acting so generous.

All we have to say is: get ready to back up the truck.

Ethereum (ETH)

Price Analysis:

  • High: $465.08
  • Low: $461.47
  • Major Resistance Level: $500
  • Hourly MACD: Emerging Upward Momentum

As we have noted in our coverage, Ethereum (ETH) has clearly lagged Bitcoin (BTC) in terms of its performance during the recent run higher in the cryptocurrency complex.

This is an issue not so much just for gauging the potential upside for Ethereum (ETH), but for gauging when the real bullish spirit has returned to the space.

In many ways, Ethereum (ETH) represents the future as far as a disruptive vehicle far more than Bitcoin (BTC), and therefore we would far rather see Ethereum (ETH) leading a rally like this.

In any case, the rally that we have seen in Ethereum (ETH) is nothing to sneeze at. The coin has made a steady flow of higher lows and has come into contact with key resistance.

A break above the $500 level would go a long ways toward convincing us that it was ready to play some serious catch up on the chart.

Not only would that move us back above the 50-day SMA, but it would also likely turn that average into an upward sloped measure as the coin got into gear above long-standing resistance. It is precisely this type of shift that can rejuvenate a bullish tone in a market like this.

Happy Trading~

We always hear how Bitcoin is great for the financial industry, how it can remove the middleman and help you save money while you spend money. How it can provide fast transactions at any time to any place, even when you wish to send money to someone on the other side of the world.

While all of that is true, it is important to remember that Bitcoin’s impact does not end there. The coin has already changed countless other industries, but one of the first ones that have accepted it with open arms — and therefore one that was changed the most — is the online gaming industry.

Bitcoin’s impact on online gaming

The first thing to note here is that digital currencies have found their use in online gaming thanks to microtransactions. However, it goes far beyond simply purchasing an in-game item from another player. Bitcoin’s biggest impact, without a doubt, concerns online gambling, sports betting, and similar activities.

Bitcoin brings security and anonymity

Bitcoin casino has become one of the new most popular places for an online gambler to visit, and for numerous reasons. Bitcoin brought increased security — to the financial industry, as well as online games. This is important because security is crucial for anyone who enjoys online gambling. It…

The Crucial Role of Cryptocurrencies & Blockchain in Modernising The Telco Industry

Blockchain has caused quite a stir in recent years. In fact, there’s a school of thought that firmly believes the digital ledger technology will prove to be the 21st Century’s biggest innovation

There are a great many industries braced for the disruptive force of blockchain, and the sweeping benefits it can bring to telecommunications can’t be underestimated. 

A blockchain is a decentralised, distributed, public digital ledger that’s fundamentally used to record transactions online. Every transaction that takes place is recorded across an extensive array of computers in a way that ensures that any individual record within the chain can’t be tampered with or retroactively modified. 

Because of the virtually impregnable security associated with blockchain and the efficiency that comes with a fully decentralised ledger, there’s plenty of potential for the technology within the telco industry in particular – especially given the financial flexibility that comes with cryptocurrency transactions beyond borders. 

Let’s take a deeper look at the important role that both blockchain and its associated cryptocurrencies can play in modernising and securing the telco industry:

Unprecedented security

The arrival of blockchain is causing a stir at Deloitte. The professional services giant has contributed tens of thousands of words on blockchain within its ‘insights’ network, and there are…
