Analysis of Price

  • High: $17.646 USD
  • Low: $17.305 USD
  • Major Resistance Level: $17.500 USD
  • Hourly MACD: Placed heavily in the Bullish Zone

As can be observed from the chart, at the time of writing, ETC/USD pair was sporting $17.646 USD (2.02%). The low, at the time of writing, shows $17.305 USD. If observed from the month of March, the price action of the said pair had been showing largely a bearish trend, like most other cryptocurrencies at that time. The Q1 of 2018 had seen massive bearish trends due to hacks of some cryptocurrency exchanges like Coincheck, and regulations brought in by several countries.

The CoinRail hack (occurred on 10th June) shows a sharp drop from low $14.922 USD on 9th June to low $12.731 USD on 10th June. The effect could also be observed among other top-ranked cryptocurrencies.

The green candles are indicating a buy momentum and the trend may follow for some time. The price may go down if there is news about another crypto exchange hack or if weaknesses are discovered by the investigative firms. Currently, the investigative firms are constantly keeping an eye on the exchanges, how they administrate, protect data, and handle any potential threats.

Coming back to the charts, the ETC/USD pair can currently be showing an uptrend as Coinbase has already announced that Ethereum Classic is going to be on the list. The listing is bound to generate some interest among the crypto enthusiasts and investors. Thus, one can expect it to have a major impact on the price action of the pair. As of now, as it is still uncertain when the listing will go live, the speculations are generating a little interest and pushing it towards Buy. The trend may continue if all goes well. Ethereum Classic is certainly exposed to volatility as the price of the pair continues to move around the 17.500 mark.

What is to be observed at the moment is whether the ETC/USD pair will break the 18.000 level and move closer to the $20 USD. From current observations, the price movement of ETC/USD is sporting the green quite strongly.

Happy Trading!!

As the crypto markets move closer to mass adoption, one of the keys for future success will revolve around attracting as many market participants as possible.  While many crypto users are extremely tech oriented, a lot of those on the sidelines are not.  The cause of waiting on the sidelines could be due to a variety of reasons such as fear of the unknown, lack of knowledge, age, or a combination of all of the above.  In order to entice new users to join the crypto revolution, crypto ATMs are rising up across the country.  Of those, the largest and most influential crypto ATM company by a significant margin is CoinFlip.

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…
