Stellar (XLM) Litecoin (LTC) Price Analysis: The Rhythm of the Bear




Support levels can be extremely important. They are essential when they hold, but they are almost more important when they don’t. As we take a look at Stellar (XLM) and Litecoin (LTC), you will note this idea very much in effect on these charts.

Stellar (XLM)

Price Analysis

  • High: $0.20351
  • Low: $0.19719
  • 24-Hour Volume: $66.95M
  • 7-day Percent Change: -26.11%

Stellar (XLM) had been a clear outperformer during the July bounce that took hold in the cryptocurrency complex and drove several coins up to test their 200-day simple moving averages.

Hence, we expected to see Stellar (XLM) show some kind of allegiance to its rising 50-day simple moving average as support, especially since it came in confluence with a prior range high price level support.

That type of combination is often hard to break, mainly when you see it in a relative strength market. However, in this case, it doesn’t appear to have been difficult to break at all.

Stellar (XLM) just sliced right down through it.

We are now seeing this chart nearing a test of critical support, and opening up the potential for another bearish technical breakdown if that support doesn’t hold as well. The key levels to watch at this point are lined up at $0.20, $0.18, and $0.17.

Litecoin (LTC)

Price Analysis

  • High: $64.223
  • Low: $60.433
  • 24-Hour Volume: $308.51M
  • 7-day Percent Change: -18.61%

It has been a very rough ride for Litecoin (LTC) over recent days, but there aren’t too many coins for which one can’t make the very same statement.

Litecoin (LTC) broke lower along with everything else last week after finding strong resistance at a sharply declining 50-day simple moving average. That sparked a break under the $80 level, which also represented a sloped support level, and then the waterfall decline began from there.

At this point, the downside that we’ve seen over the last 48 hours is starting to become persistent and dramatic enough that the one bullish factor this chart had in its favor is beginning to melt away: the bullish divergence found on the 14-day RSI measure when compared with the pivot low scored on the charts in late June.

If momentum persists, look for the next major challenge to be at support at the $55 level.

That said, LTC is perhaps at a more advanced point in the rhythm of the bearish trend and may unleash a vicious bounce if the pool of weak-handed HODLers has already run dry.

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,…
