Here Is How Bitcoin (BTC) Could Do Another 10% in 24 hours

Published

Bitcoin

Bitcoin (BTC) has once again proved itself as being the King of Crypto. Its amazing 10.65% gain in the last 24 hours, and at the moment of writing this, has enabled BTC to rise from levels of $6,700 just yesterday, to current levels of $7,424. As a result, all other coins and tokens are in the green. As a matter of fact, the total market capitalization has risen from Sunday levels of $250 Billion to current levels of $293 Billion. At this rate, the $300 Billion total market capitalization will be reached by the start of the weekend.

But how will Bitcoin do another 10% in 24 hours and get to $8,000?

Only a few hours ago, Global Coin Report had indicated the following 4 factors as to how BTC will get to $10,000:

  1. Proof positive Technical Analysis that indicates the only direction is up for the King of Crypto
  2. The Bitcoin ETF discussion with a pending ruling by the SEC in August
  3. BlackRock Investment firm declaring they are exploring blockchain and cryptocurrency
  4. Billionaire Investor, Steven Cohen announcing that he was investing in a crypto hedge fund

The current market surge is as a result of the above 4 factors. But there is a new development that will make the 10% gain a possible repeat in the next 24 hours.

This new development is that the new CEO of Goldman Sachs, David Solomon, is also eyeing Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies. It is now official that the New York-based investment bank is looking into adding Bitcoin and Cryptocurrency services to its portfolio. The new CEO stated that the bank is currently offering clients publicly traded derivatives tied to Bitcoin.

Mr. Solomon knows that investment banks need to evolve with the times to stay relevant. Otherwise, their fate will be similar to that of the Polaroid camera or Kodak which slowly became obsolete for lack of embracing technological change. Solomon is quoted as saying:

“We are clearing some futures around bitcoin, talking about doing some other activities there, but it’s going very cautiously. We’re listening to our clients and trying to help our clients as they’re exploring those things too.”

This is a clear indication that the current reversal of fate in the crypto-markets might just be permanent and a $25,000 BTC value by the end of the year is still a possibility. There is also the new feeling that Bitcoin could replace fiat currencies in the near future.

Bitcoin Price Could Get Extremely Ugly – Barrons

Published

By

Bitcoin (BTC/USD) price recent rebound has faded and its easy to see why. After soaring to a two-month high of $21,470, Bitcoin has pared back some of those gains to trade at $20,895. This decline is mostly because of the fundamentals and technicals of the coin as I will explain below.

Bitcoin Fundamentals

The main fundamental reason why Bitcoin is pulling back is the rising fears of a recession. A recent survey by WSJ placed the risk of a recession in the US at 61%. That is notable since it is the highest the figure has been in months. 

At the same time, Wall Street banks like Goldman Sachs, Citigroup, and Wells Fargo published weak financial results. Most of them said that their profits tumbled by more than 30% in the final quarter of 2022. Reading between the lines shows that most of them have allocated millions of dollars in credit loss provisons.

Historically, these provisions tend to rise when there is a fear of a recession. At the same time, many safe American companies have starte announcing substantial layoffs recently. Amazon is laying off 18,000 people while Microsoft, Salesforce, Meta Platforms are laying off thousands of workers. In a note, an analyst at Oanda said:

“Bitcoin prices are weakening as growth fears have Wall Street worried a…

2 Reasons Why Bitcoin Price is Soaring in 2023

Bitcoin price has staged a strong comeback in 2023 as investors rushed to buy the dip. The BTC/USD exchange rate surged to a high of 21,465, the highest level since November. It has risen by more than 30% from the lowest point in 2022. Here are the top reasons why BTC price is soaring.

Mild recession hopes

Bitcoin and other financial assets like stocks and gold have rallied because of the falling inflation in the United States and around the world. Consumer inflation dropped from 7.1% in November to 6.5% in December. Core inflation dropped to 5.7%. 

And on Wednesday, data from the US showed that wholesale prices dropped by 0.5% in December, higher than the expected 0.1%. The producer price index (PPI), rose by 6.2%, the lowest level since March 2021. This decline happened because of the falling energy prices.

Another data showed that retail sales tumbled in December. They dropped by 1.1% in December, the biggest decline in 2022. In a note, an analyst at RSM said:

“The lag impact of elevated inflation weighs heavily on U.S. households, it’s very clear that the median American consumer is still reeling from the loss of wages in inflation-adjusted terms.”

A recession is often seen as a bad thing. But in the financial assets, it can be seen as…

Bitcoin Price is Getting Severely Overbought: Is it a Buy?

Published

By

Bitcoin price made a spectacular comeback in the past few days as investors reflect on encouraging data from the United States. The BTC/USD exchange rate surged to a high of $21,365, the highest point since November. It has risen by more than 35% from the lowest level in November. So, is the tide turning?

Will the Fed pivot?

Bitcoin and other global assets continued surging as investors reacted to the latest American economic data. Data published last week revealed that the American consumer inflation inched downward in December. It dropped to 6.5% in December, the sixth straight month of decline.

A week earlier, data by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) showed that the country’s unemployment rate dropped to 3.5% in December. In the same period, wage growth increased by 4.7%, lower than the previous month’s 5.2%. A decline in wage inflation is a positive sign for Bitcoin and other financial assets because of the Federal Reserve.

The Federal Reserve has been in a strong tightening phase in the past few months as it continues its battle against inflation. Its goal is to soften the economy and prevent a hard landing. Such a situation will happen when wage growth eases. 

Therefore, Bitcoin has risen because of the rising chances that the Fed will start to pivot. Historically, Bitcoin and other…
