Bitcoin News: Will $6000 Hold?

Published

on

Bitcoin news

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

The sudden rise of Bitcoin has been connected to the decision taken by the Tesla electric car company to buy $1.5 billion worth of Bitcoin.

The company explained in a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) that it bought Bitcoin to diversify its cash returns and more flexibility.

Musk’s Tweets also impacted Dogecoin’s price

Tesla also added that it will start accepting Bitcoin payments for all its products, although this will be based on a limited basis and applicable laws. If the company concludes and starts accepting cryptocurrency, it will make it the first major car manufacturer to accept Bitcoin payments. The company’s founder and Chief Executive Officer Elon Musk has developed an interest in Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies.

He has been tweeting severally about the viability of the Dogecoin (DOGE), which doesn’t have an important market value attached to it.

Few hours after endorsing Dogecoin, the cryptocurrency rose by an impressive 50%. But regulatory authorities are still concerned about the risks in cryptocurrency investments, with several regulatory bodies warning traders and investors they could lose all their money from crypto investments.

But for Tesla, the company decides to diversify its funds and increased its cash returns. However, Tesla also warned investors about the volatility of Bitcoin’s price in its SEC filing. According to the SEC…

NFT(Non-Fungible Token) technology has recently gained huge focus in the blockchain arena and beyond, making waves in the online gaming sector, the art world, and the digital copyrights industry in recent years. The strongest feature of NFTs is that “NFTs are unique digital assets that cannot be replaced or forged”. Unlike fungible tokens such as Bitcoin or Ether, NFTs are not interchangeable for other tokens of the same type but instead each NFT has a unique value and specific information that cannot be replaced. This fact makes NFTs the perfect solution to record and prove ownership of digital and real-world items like works of art, game items, limited-edition collectibles, and more.

NFTs are already being actively traded in markets globally. For…

Wisebitcoin Launches Professional-Grade Crypto Exchange

Published

Infrastructure is developing rapidly in the cryptocurrency industry, but the recent launch of the Wisebitcoin cryptocurrency exchange is nonetheless significant in terms of the immediate value it provides to cryptocurrency users. That’s because the exchange has had a beta version available since 2018 while continuing further developments in stealth mode, and already serves over 1.2 million end users with $6+ billion in 24 hour trading volume at the time of its official launch.

In addition to the large user base and deep liquidity, Wisebitcoin also stands out by offering up to 100x leverage to margin traders, with the ability to open a long or short position in their futures market. In the current bullish environment, leverage is a key way that experienced traders increase their exposure and try to profit from volatility.

For example, if a user opened a long position on ETH on January 2nd at a price of $750, they could have greatly multiplied their profits with even a small amount of leverage such as 5x as ETH reached over $1,100 within 48 hours. A simple unleveraged position would have netted $350 in profit, but a 5x position would have netted $1,750 and a 100x leveraged position would have netted an incredible $35,000 in profits from an initial investment of just $750. 

Beyond leverage, Wisebitcoin additionally offers a simple and…
