As per the current condition, both IOTA and EOS are following a slightly bearish trend at the moment. IOTA is currently holding the 9th position and veering around the $1 mark whereas EOS is still struggling to reach the $8.00 figure due to its recent dip and holds the 5th position. Below you would find the comprehensive price analyses of these two (Data provided as of 10th July 2018).
- High: 1.046 USD
- Low: 1.0007 USD
- Major Resistance Level: 1.5 USD
- Hourly MACD: Placed in the sell zone.
This cryptocurrency is currently revolving around the 1 US dollar mark and following a slightly bearish trend. However, if we examine the chart closely and implement the Fibonacci extension tool on its pullback, we would be able to see that it is almost ready to bounce off the top of its descending channel thereby resuming its sell-off position. The short-term SMA is still below the long-term SMA indicating that the path of least resistance is still downwards.
The full extension is located at 0.0930. However, with a stronger selling pressure, the IOTA extension could be down by 50% reaching the 0.6864. The gap between the moving averages is slowly decreasing which is manifestly a positive sign as it indicates the fact that the current bearish trend is weakening and about to reverse. The RSI (Relative Strength Index) is also showing a propensity to go upward which is another indicator of the bullish trend.
- High: 7.7800 USD
- Low: 7.3250 USD
- Major Resistance Level: 9.03 USD
- Hourly MACD: Placed in the sell zone.
Like Ripple, the very existence of EOS coin depends on its stability. According to a recent analysis, this coin has grown nearly 32 times since its inception and the main reason behind it is the stability of EOS blockchain network. However, for the past few days, the general trend of this coin has been overwhelmingly bearish. The price of this coin has been revolving around the $7.5 mark over the past week with $9 being the obvious resistance. As per their previous trade plan, the EOS team is planning on liquidating on every pullback with $4 targets.
Similar to the IOTA chart, the gap between the moving averages is also gradually decreasing in case of EOS as well indicating an imminent bull run. Also, the relative strength index is showing an upward trend. Hence, despite the recent dip in price by approximately 11%, the beginning of a bullish trend should be a matter of time for EOS.

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…
Hodium Presents a Compelling Opportunity for Outsized Investment Returns
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…
KaratGold Proves Its Business Model By Providing Official Documents
There has been a lot of renewed enthusiasm in the cryptocurrency market thanks mainly to Bitcoin’s strong move about 10,000. Although Bitcoin continues to show its dominance, the altcoin market has yet to benefit from that rally. A few of the largest altcoins remain popular but the rest of the market continues to lag behind. In 2018, there was a lot of talk regarding a possible altcoin apocalypse where only the strong would survive. That prediction appears to be playing out as expected. Going forward, only the best projects that have a real world need will survive. Crypto traders will have to spend a lot of their time doing proper research in order to find the best opportunities, just like in all financial markets. One promising project that appears to have the makings of a future winner is KaratGold Coin.
KaratGold Coin is a cryptocurrency developed by the reputable German company Karatbars International, which maintains a leading position in the market of small gold items and investments. The project is part of a larger ecosystem, which involves several blockchain solutions that can be used for transactions, communication, investing and other tasks. During the past few weeks, however, the KaratGold ecosystem has been a target of unsavory scam allegations.
Karatbars International and GSB Gold Standard Banking Corporation…
