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.
- 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.
- 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.

Aluna.Social is a Compelling Social Platform for Crypto Traders and Investors
When one thinks about the social media landscape, the companies that first come to mind are most likely Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Snapchat. These platforms are a great way to stay connected with friends, families, and colleagues, especially when geographic distance is a factor. But, in addition to just chatting about life in general and sharing pictures, social media can be used to bridge the information gap that exists within the investment community.
Over the last decade, many trading offices have been established in large cities all over the world which allow solo traders and investors to pay a monthly fee in exchange for a workspace. The real benefit to trading in these offices is to participate in the free flow of trading ideas and information. Proprietary trading is one of the most challenging careers to be successful at and the exchange of ideas is almost required in order to succeed. Traders at hedge funds and investment banks work in teams so why shouldn’t remote traders?
While these trading offices are a great way to help bridge the information gap, Aluna.Social may provide an even better way, especially as it relates to cryptocurrency trading.
Aluna.Social, founded by Alvin Lee and Henrique Matias, is a multi-exchange social trading terminal for crypto traders and investors. The goal of the platform is to help newcomers shorten their learning curve,…
CoinFlip Scores Big with BRD Wallet Partnership
As the crypto markets move closer to mass adoption, one of the keys for future success will revolve around attracting as many market participants as possible. While many crypto users are extremely tech oriented, a lot of those on the sidelines are not. The cause of waiting on the sidelines could be due to a variety of reasons such as fear of the unknown, lack of knowledge, age, or a combination of all of the above. In order to entice new users to join the crypto revolution, crypto ATMs are rising up across the country. Of those, the largest and most influential crypto ATM company by a significant margin is CoinFlip.
In early October, CoinFlip announced on its Twitter that it had officially partnered with BRD Wallet to re-introduce their crypto ATM map. Now, BRD wallet users will be able to locate their nearest CoinFlip ATM and receive a 10% discount for both buys and sells. BRD brand awareness is growing quickly within the crypto community thanks to its innovative and entrepreneurial spirit. The team strongly believes in the value of financial freedom and independence, and want to empower people across the world by leveraging the possibilities that Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies provide.
Cryptocurrencies are already making a huge difference around the world. Citizens of Venezuela, a country devastated by rampant inflation, have been using several cryptocurrencies…
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…
