In the last 24 hours, the crypto-market has shown a different pattern than it has shown in previous twelve days, with the price of Bitcoin going down by $200 after staggering at $6,400 for days.
Bitcoin, in particular, has seen an increment in its trading volume of about 20% from $3.5 billion – $4.1 billion, showing an increase in the trading trends of the crypto-exchange market on different trading platforms worldwide.
Bitcoin has formed several highs and lows in the past one-hour; hence, the recent increase on BTC, which has been stationary this month, could potentially increase its price on a short-term.
Bitcoin currently has two Fibonacci retracement levels: 50% and 61.8%. The 50% Fib level was its earlier support zone as this matches with 100 Small Moving Average. The 61.8% Fib level matches the 200 Small Moving Average, almost.
It is important to understand that BTC’s 100 SMA is quite lower than its 200 SMA, which shows that a down-trend might occur if it doesn’t sustain its current moment. BTC’s trading oscillator is showing a great selling pressure. Also, BTC’s RSI is gradually increasing at the moment, but it might move sidewards, forming a range-bound scenario.
Will Bitcoin Move up?
There have been lots of speculations that despite BTC’s price seems dormant for now, its price is garnering some momentum, and it’s poised for a breakout beyond the $6000 area.
Till yesterday, Bitcoin seemed to move up above the bull pennant on the 4-hour. Bitcoin closed-up and moved beyond 50 and 20-day EMA yesterday and the MACD is currently gathering some bull trends after some downfall earlier today.
The market saw a slight increase in the price of BTC on Saturday, despite the fact that crypto-exchange market was set to decrease over the weekend. The slight increase in the price of Bitcoin over the weekend shows a potential short-term increase in the coming days.
It is, however, more likely, that if Bitcoin can sustain its current momentum and see it go up in the next 7-days, it is possible that it will rise sharply, and so as other cryptos with a significant market capitalization (such as Ethereum and Ripple’s XRP).
It is also important to know that last week, we saw a sideward market trend, but that didn’t stop relatively little cryptocurrencies to record small profits – but other major coins like BTC, XRP, and ETH couldn’t show any sign of recovery.
The rise of Bitcoin’s trading volume comes as a good news and it has caused major BTC traders to wait for a considerable move in the market that can turn things around to the positive side.
There are certain upside actions that can cause a major breakout on the price of Bitcoin. We do know that SEC hasn’t approved the Bitcoin’s ETF, and an approval will definitely cause a big increase. Although, there are still prospects to look out for as institutional investments are coming up.
Subsequently, other factors such as the trade pressures and the Brexit discussions may cause BTC traders not to take up risk and invest.
Nonetheless, many crypto experts believe that the price of Bitcoin would increase for sure, but it will lie on the ability of Bitcoin to maintain its current trade volume and momentum in the next few days or so.

What Will It Take For Bitcoin (BTC) To Rise Again?
It is no secret that 2018 has been a terrible year for cryptocurrencies when it comes to their value. Things looked so bright during the first few days of this year, with Bitcoin hitting $20,086 per coin, and every altcoin reaching new heights. However, it was not to last, and soon enough, the market crashed, and prices went down.
What followed was months and months of a heavily bearish market that kept pushing the prices further and further down. It prevented any attempt of recovery, although several of them gave it their best shot.
Despite a situation like this, crypto investors never forgot the potential of Bitcoin, and many have been predicting another bull run that would have the same results. Those expectations were quite large, and potentially even unrealistic at first. Now, however, as the year approaches its end, it doesn’t seem like anything will happen. The community started to wonder why that is, and what would it take for another bull run to emerge, which is what we will try to answer right now.
What does Bitcoin need in order to have another bull run?
1. Bringing regulation
The crypto space remains highly unregulated in most parts of the world, which is one of the largest reasons why BTC remains dormant. While there are attempts to regulate it, these attempts are made even more difficult due to the fact that the market is constantly changing and…

To be clear, Bitcoin (BTC) is going to come back. And when it does, it will likely double or triple overnight. But you know what? So will a number of altcoins in that time. The question that leaves most of us scratching our heads is, which ones?

Bitcoin path looks similar to that of NASDAQ during the dotcom bubble era
Unlike many other things that enter the stage with a bang only to disappear, blockchain is here to stay. Opposite to when it first appeared with Bitcoin a decade ago, currently, it seems like blockchain is the next big thing that will shape the manner money is spent.
Sometimes it makes sense for investors to use the past information to help stay in the game a bit longer. Therefore, today in this post, we are going to look at similarities between the dotcom bubble since 1973 and Bitcoin since 2011.
Will Bitcoin cross its all-time high ever again?
According to the quarterly charts, the Bitcoin price trend mirrors that of the NASDAQ index of the 1990s, but there is a catch. The manner in which NASDAQ traded in 2000 is similar to a one-year performance for Bitcoin over NASDAQ’s 14 years, with the difference being that bitcoin is fourteen times faster than how NASDAQ did it.
Reason being, today’s technology is much far ahead as the information travels faster with the diverse social media platforms and the high-speed internet connections. One thing that makes all financial bubbles universal is the fact that human fear and greed never changes.
For that reason, NASDAQ took long enough to rise 1,700% to its all-time high while Bitcoin managed a similar return in merely a few months. Similarly, NASDAQ took around 30 months to fall 78%, whereas Bitcoin lost 70%…
