CMC Markets, a trading company based in Queens Land (UK) has announced to add three new cryptocurrencies Litecoin, Bitcoin Cash and XRP respectively to its platform. The firm offers a wide variety of opportunities for its users. More than three hundred global currencies, classic commodities such as oil gold, and silver, company shares, treasury notes, gilts, and bonds. They basically offer all kinds of traditional financial instruments, even spread bets.
Last March, CMC added Bitcoin and Ethereum to the mix of products they offer and, now, they decided to support three new virtual currencies in their platform (as noted above): Litecoin, Bitcoin Cash, and XRP.
Mr. David Fineberg who happens to be the Director of Group Commercial for CMC, has this to say about the company’s new move:
“Since the successful launch of our cryptocurrency offering in March, and subsequent extension to retail clients in July, our clients have expressed interest in extending their trading options beyond bitcoin and ethereum. We are pleased to offer them the chance to take a position on bitcoin cash, litecoin and ripple, three altcoins which continue to generate much speculation among traders.”
Fineberg also added,
“Spread bets and CFDs offer a way to trade on cryptocurrencies as clients can take a position on market movements without owning the asset. By trading with an established provider, funds can be deposited and withdrawn with ease, avoiding the risks of purchasing cryptocurrencies directly through an exchange. However, like all other financial instruments we offer, we always recommend clients understand the risks and conduct thorough research before trading.”
This news is very important because we’re not talking about a crypto exchange at all, but about a traditional financial company that is adopting digital assets and bringing them into the mainstream. CMC’s clients are not crypto enthusiasts but people who try to make money using the company’s web platform through financial resources, instruments, and tools that are very old.

The company’s latest decision is part of its new approach to be innovative.
For instance, last June CMC trained Alexa to give its clients the latest financial news. headlines, articles, relevant tweets and market data. It’s the first provider in the market that has made on-demand insights in this particular way. The magic words are “Alexa, open CMC markets.”
A month later it brought crypto spread betting to its platform and they are now increasing the number of crypto coins they offer to their clients.
CMC is a company that seeks to empower traditional investors through the use of technology, and they’ve seen the writing on the wall: Crypto is the next wave. Because they are very keen on technological advances, including some of the most interesting digital assets in the world was, probably, an easy decision for them.
The company’s position on technology was also clarified by Mr. Fineberg:
“At CMC Markets we recognize the power of technology, so we continue to invest in a range of services to be a leader in this space. This is why we have taken proactive steps to ensure that we are the first trading company to fully utilize the potential of this software”
David Fineberg concluded saying,
“We are excited by how traders are engaging in the digital age, and the CMC Markets Skill we have developed is part of our ongoing strategy to enhance the overall experience of our clients by providing them with the information they need, when they need it.”

Secret Behind Binance Coin: Why is BNB Outperforming Other Coins
The crypto market has seen quite a lot of volatility in 2019, although not all of the price changes were bad, as they were in 2018. In fact, many coins saw significant growth. Bitcoin (BTC), for example, recently managed to breach one of its major resistance at $4,000. Many have predicted that breaching this roadblock will mark the next stage in Bitcoin’s growth, and potentially its return to higher levels.
However, while most of the market has been seeing significant gains in the past several days, one coin still outperforms them all — Binance Coin (BNB).
So far, in 2019, Binance Coin has shown a strong will of its own, often seemingly being immune to the market trends. While the coin did see a significant loss in 2018, it spent most of 2019 in recovery, even while the last remnants of the crypto winter still tortured the rest of the market.
Back in the early days of January 2019, the coin’s price was barely above $5. Now, however, only a bit over two months later, BNB price is at $15.86, and still seeing growth. The coin never suddenly spiked, but instead, its growth was steady and stable. Whenever it approached new resistance level, BNB would slowly carve its way through it, turning it into support, and continuing on.
But, what is allowing it to break free from…
Why Bitcoin Price Remains Stable Before the Expected Hike
The cryptocurrency rallied a few days back, but now, it has moved closer to 38.2% Fib level. Investors are enthusiastic that as it remains at this level for some time, and stabilize. The next move in Bitcoin price will take it to the 61.8% Fib level. This is when the hike in the price of the cryptocurrency will occur towards $4,200. However, after the surge in price, the upcoming weeks will see the Bitcoin falling swiftly to $3,000.
The truth is that if this move fails to occur, there may not be an improvement in the value of the digital currency. Also, this movement will enable the “bullish gartly pattern” we saw on the BTC/USD 4H chart to become a reality. Also, we are expecting that the Bitcoin price will decline the same way it has been recovering since early February.
Why this week’s closing price matters
Presently, Bitcoin price is still trading above what the intrinsic value is showing on larger time frames. However, we can see adequate room to accommodate short-term rallies. The price at which Bitcoin closes this week is very critical. It will be a clear indication as to how the digital currency will move in the coming weeks.
If Bitcoin closes at a price above $4,000, we are hopeful that the correction may come from early next week. On the other hand, any…
Blockchain-Focused ETF Arrives on London Stock Exchange
The crypto community is still waiting for the US SEC to approve Bitcoin ETFs, with speculation which application might get approval being one of the hottest topics in 2018. However, come 2019, the US government shutdown dragged on, and the Bitcoin ETF request which had the most potential to see a grant got withdrawn by the very companies that submitted the application.
While the question of BTC ETF remains hanging in the air, blockchain-focused ETFs seem to be a different matter entirely. In a recent announcement by an independent investment managed firm called Invesco, the company has stated that it was about to launch the largest blockchain-focused ETF in the world. They managed to go through with this plan, and the ETFs have reached the London Stock Exchange today, March 11th.
The exchange-traded fund includes a portfolio containing as many as 48 different firms which are bringing exposure to the emerging technology. Among them, there is Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing, which is a well-known creator of chips used for crypto mining, as well as the CME Group, which is the first regulated exchange in the US which launched Bitcoin futures. There are many other well-known companies as well, such as Intel, Microsoft, and others.
Chris Mellor, the Invesco’s head of ETF equity product management in Europe, said that blockchain has a huge potential to increase earnings, even though…
