Bitcoin News: Will $6000 Hold?

Our bullish enthusiasm certainly got tempered after Bitcoin dropped $300 yesterday on no new Bitcoin news. The Bitcoin price just could not break through the 6500-6600 resistance zone. As usual, what can’t go higher must go lower.

The problem has been very light volume as many traders are on the sidelines waiting for Bitcoin news. We have the Bitcoin ETF approval coming up on September 30th and many traders don’t want to press their bets. The lack of volume also creates problems where the whales come in and can move the market and spook many longs out of their positions. I, for one, was positioned pretty long expecting the next leg to be higher. Unfortunately, the price has come down and I will just have to HODL my core position and wait.

While I am waiting, I am contemplating what the next move shall be.

Bearish case

So let’s say Bitcoin takes out the 6100 double bottom on the charts as shown on the BitMex chart.

Do I press a short or do I wait and average in a long? If we take out 6100, we will most likely test the 5740 lows. If 5740 fails, the target for a lot of traders is 4820.

I believe the correct course of action is to average in on a long. I will scale in bit by bit as the price drops. The reason? Because wherever it bottoms, I think we will see a very significant price bounce and recovery and it will happen rather quickly.

Why not short?

My main reason for not shorting is that I cannot be sure when the break will come. I don’t want a short triggered and then I get into a short position when I am a sleep, the market collapses, but then stages the rally I am looking for. I don’t want to position short, not at these levels. The best thing I can do is throw limit orders to buy around 5800, 5700, 5500, 5000. This way I am averaged in, especially if a flash crash happens. This could be the most likely scenario if we get panic selling on new lows. The good news is that if this happens, there is a lot of money on the sidelines waiting to buy. That’s why I am not worried if the market goes lower.

Psychological effect

The biggest issue I have with prices back around 6250 is psychological. This bear market is wearing down a lot of people. I can tell because Google search traffic is down. Crypto investors are just not following their coins like before. The bear market has decimated many investors with many having losses greater than 90%. To recover their losses, the coins need to rise 1000% or more just to break even.

Gameplan

The best spot to be right now is on the sidelines in fiat or Tether. I am HODLing Bitcoin at these levels and will buy more as the price drops.

Bottom line

My team and I are watching the markets closely waiting for next big move. To hear more of my thoughts on the crypto markets, tune into my interview with Crypto Rich on his YouTube channel. Hope you like it.

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…

Integrating blockchain technology is fast becoming a necessity for enterprise ventures and small or large businesses, but with a growing number of choices in the tech revolution, it’s difficult to pick a direction without feeling overwhelmed or taken advantage of. This is where BEHOLD THE CRYPTOPRENEURS comes in.

Private keys, the myth of anonymity, and the battle against anarchist ideology are only a few of the difficult challenges faced by businesses that want to incorporate blockchain into their culture. Author Dennis H. Lewis guides the reader through those challenges and helps them discover the true potential of investing in this new economic paradigm.

Every business has pain points that must be overcome in order to branch out and thrive in an ever-changing commercial environment. Blockchain has real world solutions and cryptopreneurs are not limited to the cryptocurrencies they invest in but rather how they seize economic and technological opportunities to make it work for them.

Innovation, trust, and solutions can differentiate your business from all the noise, but without a solid marketing plan, a cryptopreneur can have the best idea and never get far. Remember: a million great ideas times zero market presence equals zero success.

Investors want to know there is public interest and enthusiasm in a project before they commit any money to it. As a cryptopreneur, you are tasked with generating that interest from the…
