Stellar (XLM) Cardano (ADA) Price Analysis – How They’re Measuring Up




Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you are probably aware that the cryptocurrency complex has recently seen some newfound upside momentum. We have been noting some interesting signs of support and the possibility that we would see such a move as we moved toward the second half of July. As such, it’s gratifying to see it begin to take shape on the charts.

At this point, there are several different important moves that really capture the essence of this reversal, with the action in both Stellar (XLM) and Cardano (ADA) representing both significant moves in their own right, as well as an indication for money flows into the complex as a whole.

Stellar (XLM)

Price Analysis:

  • High: $0.29006
  • Low: $0.28100
  • Major Resistance Level: $0.33
  • Hourly MACD: Recent Overbought Extreme

Over the course of the recent sharp rally that we have seen across the cryptocurrency asset class, there have been a few dramatic winners, with Stellar (XLM) being one of the most obvious. Over the last few days, Stellar (XLM) has broken out above its recent range highs in the $.22 area, broken through both of its major moving averages, and launched all the way up to challenge its early June highs for a five-day gain of nearly 70%.

For those of us from a traditional technical analysis background, relative strength is like a juicy steak. This should be even more true for a market that presents essentially no obvious vehicles for shorting. In other words, one can’t chalk it up to an empty short squeeze when you see a move like this in Stellar (XLM).

At this point, for those not involved but interested, it’s important to mark down in store for later reference this remarkable burst of relative strength. It suggests that this is a coin worth watching for involvement on any pullbacks.

Given the volatility of this coin, one can imagine such opportunities may well spell themselves out before long, and might even present themselves in the form of a check back to the major moving averages, which now trail the coin as underlying support.

Cardano (ADA)

Price Analysis:

  • High: $0.168182
  • Low: $0.161490
  • Major Resistance Level: $0.20
  • Hourly MACD: Emerging Trend Change Potential

While the recent bounce in Cardano (ADA) may not look all that dramatic on the chart, it should be respected as potentially a very significant move.

What we see here in this move is a combination of several important factors: volume has been increasing, the move comes off of a double bottom complete with a strong bullish RSI divergence, the rally broke above recent range highs set earlier this month, and it also represents a bullish breakout above the 50-day simple moving average.

If we pan back somewhat further, we will see that the recent bullish divergence on an oscillator basis in ADA also represents a multi-month double bottom support hold. Finally, and perhaps most important of all, any notion that it downtrend was in place that was still maintaining itself from the January highs should be dispelled by the fact that the coin just broke out above both the nominal and logarithmic downward trend line charted as a function of the January and May highs.

This is a strong showing, but it needs to be maintained by some strong follow-through and some strong evidence of new flows of supportive bids that come in to support any prospective pullback from here in Cardano (ADA).

Investors Beware: Another Large Bitcoin Crash Might Be Coming



Bitcoin crash

The crypto prices have surged quite high in the last few months. Of course, their progress is nowhere near the one seen in 2017, but they appear to be getting there, one day at the time. However, things might not be as simple as that, and according to recent performance — it is more than possible that a major Bitcoin crash is incoming.

The fact is that cryptos saw a massive amount of growth in a very short period. Bitcoin itself more than doubled its price in only two months. Now, the rally is starting to crash in on itself, and the coin is already about $1,000 lower than last week. If such development does come to pass, a lot of people will experience quite large losses, although experienced investors might find some opportunities, and leverage in order to enhance their holdings’ long-term value.

For example, Bitcoin dominance is expected to crash very quickly, which will work in favor of quite a lot of altcoins. While this does not seem to be the best time to invest in BTC, altcoins are another story, and diversifying a portfolio now might end up being very profitable in days to come.

Bitcoin behavior mirrors the pre-bear market situation

The crash that analysts are predicting right now comes as a direct consequence of all the hype that has been building up in…

Top 3 Coins to Buy Before They Go Big




Crypto bulls are back, that much is clear. The long-lasting, harsh crypto winter is gone, and the new era in digital currency sector opens up some rather interesting opportunities. With many more bull runs expected to come in months ahead, a lot of coins are likely to blow up and maybe even hit new all-time highs, although that still remains purely theoretical.

On the other hand, the fact is that numerous coins are seeing prices that were not achieved since early 2018, and the overall momentum remains bullish. With that in mind, even if new records do not come for a very long time — chances are that many of the coins will blow up enough for investors to see some serious gains in months to come. As a result, investing in some of these coins now might be a very profitable decision, for those who have the patience to wait a few months. Here are some of the projects believed to have the greatest potential to go big in the second half of 2019 and beyond.


Putting TRON on the list should not really surprise anyone, as the project constantly comes up with new project updates, partnerships, and alike. It also constantly breaks records, as is becoming one of the biggest players in the dApp and smart contract development sector.

In the past few…

Can Crypto Credit Cards Disrupt the Fight Against Financial Crime?



crypto credit cards

It is commonly known that the world of finances has the biggest problem with the crime of all existing industries around the world. It has been so throughout history. While the financial world has evolved, so did the criminal activities, and they continue to be an issue. With the arrival of cryptocurrencies, many were hoping that financial crime might be disrupted. However, for now, at least, it appears that cryptos themselves cannot find a way to resolve issues such as international money laundering.

In fact, when it comes to money laundering, the crypto sector appears to be the weakest link, especially because of the nature of digital currencies. The anonymity that cryptos are being praised for means that anyone can get a payment from an unknown source from anywhere in the world. This method can then be used for financing drug trafficking, cyberattacks, terrorists, and more.

Until recently, it was not easy for bad actors to make use of cryptocurrencies obtained for illegal purposes. The number of merchants willing to accept the coins was low, and criminals were forced to find a way to exchange crypto into fiat currencies. However, this came with a set of issues, such as taking foreign exchange risks and then sending the money through wallets and exchanges to a banking system that would allow withdrawal. The banking account was the biggest obstacle here,…
