Bitcoin Cash (BCH) Technical Analysis – Nothing Good Happens Below The 200 Day Moving Average

After bottoming out in early April at the 600 level, Bitcoin Cash (BCH) put in a spectacular run for the roses appreciating three-fold topping out earlier this month at 1849. Yet has since found the going challenging and once again trading below its 20 (yellow line) and 200 (red line) day moving averages, while BCH attempts to hold the line at its 50DMA (blue line) as we can witness in the Chart below:

As we can observe from the daily chart above, BCH finds itself trading beneath its 20 and 200DMA’s and attempting to maintain its 50DMA. In addition, we can also see that BCH presently resides in a former congestion zone from the February through early March time-frame within the shaded area acting as potential support.

While BCH has yet to violate short-term support located at the 1128 level, when weighing all of the evidence taking place, such as trading below both its 20 and 200DMA’s as well as the overall market climate, the likelihood of BCH breaching its 50DMA and testing the 1128 figure remains a viable possibility and probability particularly with cryptocurrency conditions as slippery as they are at present.

When zooming-out to the Weekly Chart above, we can also observe that BCH is trading within a triangle formation and perhaps more importantly, just how critical the 1128 potential support level is as it dates back to the week of 11/20/17.

Taking all of the above into consideration, both the action on the daily and weekly time-frames (charts), both investors and traders alike may want to pay close attention to the action in BCH moving forward.

With that said, let’s take a closer look at specific levels that may provide further clues/evidence in order to ascertain which direction BCH may have in store in the forthcoming days/weeks ahead.

If, at any time in the days ahead BCH is unable to hold its 50DMA, which as of this writing, finds itself ticking slightly below, the probability of a test at the aforementioned potential support level of 1128 would certainly come into ‘play’.

Should the 1128 level ‘give way’ at any time in the days/weeks ahead, such development, should it materialize, would be extremely concerning as that would likely set the stage for a possible move into Tier II support, which can be found at the 950-1000 zone.

However, should BCH be capable of holding both its 50DMA (1162) and staving off a test of the 1128 level as well and can turn the tides north, a move that clears the 1313 and perhaps more importantly, the 1357 figure, would surely be an encouraging step from a short-term perspective, in righting the ship.

Nevertheless, BCH presently finds itself, as do many in the cryptocurrency universe, at a key inflection point attempting to stem the bleed lower. As the saying goes, “Nothing good happens below the 200-day moving average”, and that’s precisely where we find numerous names presently residing.

Happy Trading!!

Binance Coin (BNB) Stops Following Bitcoin (BTC) — But is it Permanent?

Binance Coin (BNB) is currently one of the most interesting coins in the vast crypto market. However, the thing that makes it interesting is seemingly unique to BNB at this time, which is the fact that it managed to decouple itself from Bitcoin (BTC).

As many are likely aware of, Bitcoin is the first and the largest cryptocurrency. It is also the most valuable one, in terms of its price. As such, Bitcoin has been dominating the market, as well as dictating the market’s behavior. Whenever Bitcoin’s price goes up or down, the rest of the market tends to follow, and each coin’s chart resembles that of BTC — not completely, but enough for everyone to notice.

Binance Coin, however, is the first coin to successfully say ‘no’ to this trend, and resist the largest cryptocurrency. Many have noticed this phenomenon and were wondering what had caused it. So far, the only explanation is a large number of use cases that BNB now has, thanks to various projects.

Binance Coin use cases

Binance Coin was created by the largest crypto exchange by trading volume, Binance. The exchange developed it to be a native coin in Binance ecosystem, and it is being used within the exchange itself. Many have started buying the coin, as using it within the exchange grants a significant discount on trading fees. The discount is…

Why Bitcoin Price Remains Stable Before the Expected Hike

The cryptocurrency rallied a few days back, but now, it has moved closer to 38.2% Fib level. Investors are enthusiastic that as it remains at this level for some time, and stabilize. The next move in Bitcoin price will take it to the 61.8% Fib level. This is when the hike in the price of the cryptocurrency will occur towards $4,200. However, after the surge in price, the upcoming weeks will see the Bitcoin falling swiftly to $3,000.

The truth is that if this move fails to occur, there may not be an improvement in the value of the digital currency. Also, this movement will enable the “bullish gartly pattern” we saw on the BTC/USD 4H chart to become a reality. Also, we are expecting that the Bitcoin price will decline the same way it has been recovering since early February.

Why this week’s closing price matters

Presently, Bitcoin price is still trading above what the intrinsic value is showing on larger time frames. However, we can see adequate room to accommodate short-term rallies. The price at which Bitcoin closes this week is very critical. It will be a clear indication as to how the digital currency will move in the coming weeks.

If Bitcoin closes at a price above $4,000, we are hopeful that the correction may come from early next week. On the other hand, any…

Stanford Lecturer praises XRP over Bitcoin

The world of cryptocurrencies continues to cause controversies even now, particularly when it comes to matters such as the superiority of one coin over others. According to recent reports, one student from Stanford University has stated that one of Stanford’s guest lecturers — Dr. Susan Athey — bashed the first and largest cryptocurrency, Bitcoin, while praising XRP.

Does guest lecturer go anti-Bitcoin?

In late February, Stanford’s student called Conner Brown came out publicly with a claim that Athey described Bitcoin’s network and protocol inaccurately, and that she also used the opportunity to make unfounded criticism. Athey, who also sits on Board of Directors at Ripple Labs — XRP’s parent company — supposedly also stated that XRP provides solutions to all issues mentioned in regards to Bitcoin.

According to Brown’s comments on the matter, the lecture in question took place over a month ago, and after attending it, he wrote an open letter to Standford, explaining the incident. In the letter, Brown claims that Athey inaccurately presented Bitcoin’s consensus protocol and overstated several issues, such as the threat of a 51% attack on the coins network, as well as Bitcoin’s mining centralization.

However, the main problem with the lecture, as Brown sees it, is the professor’s claims that XRP presents a solution to these problems.

The claims caused Dr. Athey to respond publicly via Twitter, stating…
