Perhaps the best way to view recent activity across the cryptocurrency complex is as a battle between speculators positioning for investment returns during phase 3 of the crypto Revolution and monetizers converting supplies of coins into fiat currency for use in the world after earning, mining, or otherwise gaining access to stores of high market cap coins.

Below, we are going to take a look at two coins locked in this battle – Stellar (XLM) and Cardano (ADA) – with a close eye fixed on the key levels defining both fronts in this war.

Stellar (XLM)

Price Analysis

  • High: $0.28193
  • Low: $0.26592
  • Major Resistance Level: $0.28
  • Hourly MACD: Rolling Over

No one is going to argue with the idea that Stellar (XLM) has become a clear outperformer in the crypto space over the last couple months, powering higher by nearly 100% in just about 15 days in the middle of last month.

This move was comprised of a high-volume breakout above the coin’s 50-day simple moving average, which was immediately followed by a spike higher to test resistance at the 200-day simple moving average.

At this point, we are seeing a pullback to possibly test support at the $0.25 level, which could be a very interesting spot for those looking to establish new involvement in Stellar (XLM).

If we happen to flush out that level in XLM, sellers may cascade and feed on themselves to take us down to a test of the 50-day simple moving average – now a rising average – at just above the $0.23 level.

Cardano (ADA)

Price Analysis

  • High: $0.14143
  • Low: $0.13108
  • Major Resistance Level: $0.14
  • Hourly MACD: Trending Lower

Like most coins across the complex, we saw Cardano (ADA) dip sharply to start out this week, with support stepping in over the past 24 hours intermittently, as the battle intensifies around the key $0.13 level.

At its lows, we saw massively oversold markers on the hourly MACD indicator, creating a high probability of some level of stability. However, over the past 12 hours, this state has relieved itself, opening the door for another possible test of support below.

If we do move back lower, we could be in for another test of the $0.125 level, which was successfully tested by Cardano (ADA) during the pivot low formed on July 12.

If we are able to find new support and break to the upside out of the range formed over the last 24 hours, the most important resistance level above at this point is at the lower half of the four-day range formed during the latter half of July, with the critical zone at this point sitting at the $0.16 level in ADA.

Happy Trading~

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…

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…

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.
