Things You Need To Know If You Want To Invest In Bitcoin Now / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Boris_Dzhingarov

2017 was a wonderful year for Bitcoin but 2018 did not yet live up to initially set expectations. Basically, people that are specialized in Bitcoin and crytpocurrency investments are now divided. Investing in Bitcoin is something so many are interested in but before you do this, there are some things that you absolutely have to know.

Short-term Turnaround in Bitcoin Might Not Be What You Think / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Mike_McAra

The last couple of weeks have been disheartening for Bitcoin bulls. The currency has been on a move down. Is this about to end? The answer to this question determines whether the profits on our hypothetical positions are about to grow.

News has come out that the recent move down might be over. In an article on the Forbes website, we read:

The plunge began Sunday, with several factors possibly feeding into it, including a cyber-heist that hit South Korea’s Coinrail cryptocurrency exchange—even though no bitcoins were stolen—and a U.S. regulatory probe into Bitcoin price manipulation.

Ethereum & Bitcoin: First Sign of Unravelling Cryptos / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Ryan_Wilday

In articles starting in April I discussed the bullish impulse we had seen off the April lows for nearly every coin I track. And, I discussed how the lows on May 28 were testing levels that, if broken, threatened the continuation of that impulse.

Unfortunately, as of writing, those levels have broken. These levels were $7075 in bitcoin (BTC-USD) and $505 in ethereum (ETH-USD). And, while we have a few outliers in the cryptocurrency, most coins are following suit.

Respite for Bitcoin Traders Might Be Deceptive / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Arkadiusz_Sieron

Bitcoin has been denying the bullish ideas of some of the investors for some time now. At the moment, the currency is in a particularly important zone. One specific move out from this area could result in extreme moves, boosting profits on our hypothetical positions.

Bitcoin is still going down. As always, there is an explanation for every move. In an article on CNBC, we read:

The digital currency fell to a low of $6,133.31 as of 1 p.m. ET, according to data from CoinDesk. Bitcoin has lost half its value this year after skyrocketing to almost $20,000 in December.

Respite for Bitcoin Traders Might Be Deceptive / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Mike_McAra

There seems to be some respite for Bitcoin traders. It might be tempting to take this breather as a sign of the tide turning. We highlight the reasons why you probably shouldn’t.

In the last couple of days, Bitcoin has gone up a bit. This has brought questions if the current move is only a correction within a decline or already an important sign of a shift in the market. In an article on CoinDesk, we read:

Bitcoin looks primed for a move to $8,000, but low trading volumes point to the risk of a bull trap.

The cryptocurrency broke through a key descending trendline (drawn through the May 6 high to the May 21 high) on Sunday, adding credence to last Tuesday's bullish outside-day candle and signaling a short-term bearish-to-bullish trend change.

Bottom Holds in Bitcoin, Ethereum: Price Must Prove Sentiments / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Ryan_Wilday

Last week in my article, "A bottom in the crypto market, or more blood-letting?" I suggested that a bottom could be imminent, or that we had bottomed. I often look to our bellwethers, Bitcoin(BTC-USD) and Ethereum (ETH-USD), as signals for the larger crypto market.

I wanted to see $7085 hold in bitcoin and $495 in Ethereum. On May 28, bitcoin hit $7075, a nominal break and ethereum $505. So far, those levels have held, and we appear to have set up bullishly. As long as they do, we have a very bullish setup - the five-wave pattern off the April lows, which suggests this wave ii we believe bottomed that proceeds a larger third wave rally.

If Bitcoin Is A Fraud, So Too Is The Dow Jones Industrial Average / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Barry_M_Ferguson

Below is a chart of the ETF that tracks the value of bitcoin, GBTC, and the Dow Jones Industrial average for one year ending 4/29/18. One can easily see the correlation. They are the same chart. Maybe GBTC leads the Dow in direction. If so, GBTC is going lower while the last Federal Reserve instigated rally only turned ugly today with a near 400-point selloff. Let’s review.

As I have been writing, America has been stripped of everything including a ‘market’ of stocks and the ability of investors to realize price discovery. The Fed is in charge of that. Forget Elliot Wave or fundamentals or anything else. That stuff only applies to real market behavior. Technical patterns only matter because the Fed manipulates them to keep us playing along.

Outlook Shifting in Predictable Ways for Bitcoin / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Mike_McAra

As Bitcoin is going down, we’re seeing more and more information on how the currency is in a precarious position or how the prospects of the currency is bleak. But what interests traders the most is if the recent developments have changed anything in the current outlook. And we provide you with our answer to this question. One our readers have known for some time now.

The media seem to have noticed that Bitcoin has depreciated. More Bitcoin-oriented outlets might even focus on market-specific events such as technical developments. In an article on CoinDesk, we read:

Bitcoin risks closing below the 50-week moving average (MA) – an important long-term support not breached for over two-and-a-half years.

More Clarity for the Short Term for Bitcoin Price / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Mike_McAra

Bitcoin has been on the move down from $10,000. The recent couple of days, however, saw the decline decelerate. Does this have any bullish indications for the currency at the moment. We actually do have some strong ideas on this question and on the possibility that we might have already seen a local extreme. We would like to share them in this alert along with thoughts on our already profitable hypothetical positions.

It’s really hard to put a reasonable number down as far as Bitcoin’s value is concerned. This doesn’t stop people from taking a crack at it. On the Forbes website, we read:

Are You Still Fearful of Cryptos? / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Avi_Gilburt

Ryan Wilday: Since leaving my job as a corporate design manager to analyze and trade cryptos (among other things), I’ve gained new attention from old colleagues. In circles of my former profession, I’m the guy that retired to trade for a living. While my departure from corporate life was something I planned for many years, cryptos certainly gave those plans a shot in the arm.

Regardless of how it came about, my early ‘retirement’ carries some lore; ‘He must have made millions on Bitcoin’ I’m sure some say.

Bitcoin Beyond the Bubble - Video / Currencies / Bitcoin

You know what’s almost as rewarding as being right about Bitcoin? The satisfaction of saying “I told you so” to all the powerful naysayers who scoffed at crypto years before it became today’s most profitable trend.

And that’s what the new documentary “Bitcoin: Beyond the Bubble” does so well, capturing the establishment freakout we in the crypto world have painstakingly endured for so many years.

IS BITCOIN ANONYMOUS? / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Submissions

Like most people new to Bitcoin, you’re probably wondering whether it is anonymous.  The answer is NO. While many individuals see it as an anonymous cryptocurrency or payment platform, Bitcoin, like many other cryptos is private but pseudo-anonymous.

While it doesn’t need users to provide their details, all the transactions they’ve made or will make are public domains, and everyone in the blockchain will be able to see them.  To secure its transactions Bitcoin uses a public key, which is a long string of letters and numbers called a BTC address. These public keys are not tied to any identifiable details and information; however, in theory, they can be used to gather information about an individual over time.

Bitcoin Tide Might Have Turned / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Mike_McAra

Bitcoin stabilized, went  up, went down and now is going up again. The ride has been wild and the opinions on the outlook in the market have been shifting. We hold a steady course and strive to filter out all the noise to give you the most relevant information. An there’s rarely a more important time than now for that. The tide might have turned and we’re on the lookout for a confirmation of the trigger. Such a confirmation could increase the profits on our hypothetical position.

The South Korean government moved to raid the biggest cryptocurrency exchange in the country. On Reuters, we read:

South Korean prosecutors raided the country’s biggest cryptocurrency exchange, Upbit, on Thursday and Friday on suspicion of fraud, Yonhap news agency reported.

The agency did not give details. Neither Upbit nor the financial investigation team of the Seoul Southern District public prosecutors’ office was immediately available for comment..

Bitcoin Simmering Slowly... / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Mike_McAra

The situation in the market has become one where Bitcoin is trading on relatively low volume without major moves. But the currency is in a very important place. Actually, Bitcoin is simmering slowly. Will it boil? Will this increase the profits on our hypothetical positions?

The Bitcoin market has its undeniable quirks. From the wild volatility of the currency, to a community of developers supporting it, to the fact that Bitcoin can be put in vaults. Putting Bitcoin in “cold vaults” usually means transferring the currency to a storage device without any access to the Internet or any outside networks. But sometimes Bitcoin is put in actual vaults. In an article on Bloomberg, we read:

Behind the guards, the blast doors and down corridors of reinforced concrete, sit the encrypted computer servers -- connected to nothing -- that hold keys to a vast digital fortune.

As reported by CNBC, the patent--filed by Amazon Technologies--will "correlate different data streams and sell the combined feed as a subscription to people who want to track that data."

Bitcoin is Bitcoin / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Submissions

Mike Jarmuz writes: Someone once tried to sell me a used Rolex for $500 when the fair market value of this “Rolex” would be around $4,500.  The watch said Rolex, it definitely looked like a Rolex and for someone who never had worn a Rolex before….. I guess it also felt like a Rolex.  But… this watch was definitely NOT a Rolex and I thankfully did not make this purchase.  This is pretty much the analogy for anyone buying Bitcoin Cash today and thinking it’s Bitcoin.  It looks like Bitcoin, it may feel like Bitcoin and somehow there are people out there who refer to it as “the real Bitcoin.”  I mean after all, Bitcoin.com has multiple PSA references and warnings about it. Unfortunately, they aren’t warning you (to your benefit) at all.  They are one of the biggest proponents in the spreading of misinformation.  The whole damn website is lousy with inaccurate and downright factually incorrect information.  But why?  Why would Bitcoin.com along with a handful of other “bad actors” try and doup the public?

Has Bitcoin Been Shot Down? / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Mike_McAra

Another week, another outrageous prediction for the price of Bitcoin. We just saw a forecast at more than 75 times the current value of the currency. The figure is $700,000. Is Bitcoin really about to take off to the Moon or has it been shot down?

The honest answer is that nobody can say this with certainty. It’s probably not the answer you expected but we are more interested in giving you accurate information than false enthusiasm. Before we give you our view on the matter, let’s get to know the $700,000 claim. In an article on the Fortune website, we read:

John Pfeffer, a partner at his London-based family office Pfeffer Capital, is not only betting on Bitcoin, but giving it a bold price target of $700,000—about 75 times the current Bitcoin price of nearly $9,500.

You can’t put down a virtual poker card these days without hearing news about blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin. The premise of transparency, trusted record keeping and identity verification at the heart of distributed ledgers carries the power to transform every industry. Perhaps there’s no better suit for what blockchain can do than in the online gambling business.
