Bitcoin Hater George Soros Finally Admits He Wants In On Crypto / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Jeff_Berwick

America’s favorite power broker, the evil bloated Ringwraith himself, George Soros, is now poised to invest in cryptocurrency, despite trashing Bitcoin just a few months ago.

In addition to calling Bitcoin a “bubble”, Soros ironically stated that digital currencies are a tool for dictators:

As long as you have dictatorships on the rise, you will have a different ending, because the rulers in those countries will turn to Bitcoin to build a nest egg abroad.

Will Bitcoin Ever Recover? / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Submissions

With a value of $137 billion, Bitcoin remains the largest cryptocurrency on the market.  When it performs well, the others follow suit and when it drops so do they.  The road has been a rough one for the currency in recent times reaching ultimate highs and all-time lows.  But, will Bitcoin ever recover?

Bitcoin Not Quite Worthless, Potentially Profitable / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Mike_McAra

Is Bitcoin worthless? Depreciation brings such questions as it has in the past. Bitcoin traders might be worried by such statements. But should they be anxious? In the whirlwind of opinions, we can find a theme which might allow profits on our hypothetical positions to grow even further.

The fact that Bitcoin is going down prompts all sort of analyses to come out. No big surprise that some of them are pretty bearish. In a piece on CNBC, we read:

Bitcoin is likely to fare worse than other assets in the coming months because it has no fundamental worth, an investment research firm said in a note Thursday.

London-based Capital Economics explained that the cryptocurrency has been quite closely correlated to the S&P 500 since the price started to fall from its record high at the end of last year.

Bitcoin Elliott Wave Analysis Looking for Short Term Recovery / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: ElliottWave-Forecast

Bitcoin Elliott Wave Analysis in the short term is showing an interesting corrective structure suggesting a recover to take place after it finishes the current move.

The digital instrument is correcting the cycle from 03/18 low in 3 waves as a Zigzag structure  which reached the 100% – 161.8% Fibonacci extension area $8093 – $7520 from where it’s expected to resume a new cycle to the upside or at least bounce in 3 waves as long as it remain above $7320 low.

Staying Away from the Bitcoin Crypto Bubble / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Harry_Dent

The crypto ship is sailing in rough seas at the moment. My advice? Stay away for now. Preserve your capital for after the major crash, and then pick winners from the bones.

The bitcoin and cryptocurrency trends seem to be following the path the internet took back in the very late 1990s. That bubble came at the end of the tech bubble, and expanded by more than 8 times between late 1998 and early 2000. Then it crashed 93%.

One Change the Bitcoin Posse Is Unlikely to See / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Mike_McAra

“Bitcoin will reach the moon,” they said. “$20,000 is only the beginning,” they pressed. The harsh reality of the recent move is that appreciation has been nowhere in sight. Harsh, that is, if you haven’t been positioned properly. Are Bitcoin traders bound to be left with their teeth clenched, watching Bitcoin fluctuate? No. There’s a possibility for some to grow the profits they already have on specific positions and for others to jump in during the next part of the move.

Bitcoin, Verge, Ethereum and Ripple - The Crypto Market Conundrum / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Avi_Gilburt

By Ryan Wilday : In my last article I stated that we had the potential for a lasting bottom in the crypto market, starting with a low in most coins on February 6th. However, in that article I also gave the conditions for that bottom to fail.

Those conditions, unfortunately, became reality. We have since seen both Ether and Verge, highlighted in that article, slide to new lows below the February 6th low. Bitcoin and Ripple did not fall below their February 6th levels, but did confirm the unlikelihood of that low marking the beginning of an impulsive wave.

Can Bitcoin Price Rally Continue After Paypal Fake FUD Attack? / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Nadeem_Walayat

The Bitcoin price has bounced back strongly after it's recent wobbly following the apparently fake PayPal 'Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt' FUD attack last Friday with the price recovering from a recent low of $7,350 to currently stand at $8,400, that has the Bitcoin community breathing a huge sigh of relief believing today's rally to mark the end of the pain of the past 3 months that has witnessed the Bitcoin price collapse from a high of $20,000 to a low of $6,600.

Putin Flip-Flops Like A Drunken Whore On Bitcoin Cryptocurrency Legalization / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Jeff_Berwick

Whenever I am asked, “How should governments treat cryptocurrencies” my general response is the following. Who cares?

You might as well ask me what the Japanese Yakuza or Mexican cartels should do about cryptos. I don’t really care.

Not that the Yakuza or the cartels are anywhere near as bad as governments. I apologize to them both for even making that insulting insinuation.

Bitcoin Price Trend Forecast, Paypal FUD Fake Cryptocurrency Warning / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Before we get to my technical take on the prospects for the Bitcoin price, apparently the crypto currencies were subject to a FUD attack on Friday, where FUD stands for 'Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt', that seems to be the automatic response of the crypto crowd to any bad news. So what happened to trigger this avalanche of FUD panic? Well Friday morning warnings popped into the email box of millions of PayPal customers including myself warning of dire consequences if we did not " Cease any activity that results in the trading or transfer of cryptocurrency", the full text of which follows below:

Has Bitcoin Bought It? / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Mike_McAra

Punch-drunk from a series of crunching blows, dazed and confused, staggering for the ropes. It’s hard not to get the image of Bitcoin being pummeled by the market, getting the wind knock out of it. But is this picture true? Instead of focusing on what swirls around in the media, a cautious investor would instead reach out for what might drive their profits.

Google has moved to ban Bitcoin-related adds. This shouldn’t be particularly surprising, given the fact that there’s been precedent in the form of Facebook pursuing similar actions. In an article on CNBC, we read:

Bitcoin prices briefly fell below $8,000 on Wednesday following news that Google, the world's largest online ad provider, plans to ban cryptocurrency advertising.

Facebook, the second largest online ad provider, took similar action in January.

Bitcoin BTCUSD Elliott Wave View Calling for Rally toward $15,000 / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: ElliottWave-Forecast

Since all time high in December 2017, Bitcoin BTCUSD ( Value in US Dollar ) dropped 70% before finally bottoming around $6590 on the 6th of February 2018. The big decline drove fear into the digital market as many new investors / traders lost their money during that period so they decided to stay away and avoid further losses because the mainstream media was again calling Bitcoin as a busted Bubble even though they were amazed by the Rise of Cryptocurrencies in 2017.

During the recent 2 months , Bitcoin daily confirmed transaction has been dropping significantly hitting 2 years low despite a +90% bounce seen in BTCUSD since February low. Data from different brokers show that current consumer desire to ‘hodl’ on to one’s bitcoins and watch the market, rather than cash out or convert into currencies.

Riding the Bitcoin Wave / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Mike_McAra

In a move surprising to some, the SEC has announced that a number of cryptocurrency exchanges must register with the agency. Without naming names, the race has begun to determine if a specific platform meets the definitions put forward by the SEC. As our readers are aware, this is actually not surprising at all. In fact, it is only one small step in a broader trend recognizable in the Bitcoin market. How this specific event translates into the current trading conditions is what’s most interesting from a trader’s perspective. And we have indeed seen one specific change which may influence your profits.

Is the Bitcoin Bull Market Dead or Just Taking a Breather? / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Sol_Palha

For at least another hundred years we must pretend to ourselves and to every one that fair is foul and foul is fair; for foul is useful and fair is not. Avarice and usury and precaution must be our gods for a little longer still.

John Maynard Keynes

Despite the heavy beating Bitcoin has taken, the sentiment has not turned bearish, and Bitcoin experts are still enthusiastically issuing wild targets of $100K and beyond.

Alleged SEC Probe Leaves Bitcoin Market Confounded / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Mike_McAra

The market is hectic. The attention span of most investors is short. The long-term implications of one particular trend among governments the world all over has far reaching implications for the future of digital currencies. The question now is if this often overlooked factor tells us anything anything about the way the Bitcoin market behaves, the way digital currencies react to unexpected news and how to navigate the current complex short-term environment.

The factor we’re writing about is government regulation and, specifically, the alleged recent move by the SEC to target Bitcoin companies. In a Wall Street Journal article, we read:

The Securities and Exchange Commission has issued dozens of subpoenas and information requests to technology companies and advisers involved in the red-hot market for cryptocurrencies, according to people familiar with the matter.

Will We See A Cryptocurrency Wipeout This 2018? / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Science_Investing

Summary
Every cryptocurrency investor and trader must carefully consider the underlying facts to their investment. There are major red flags from a fundamental and technical point of view. Therefore crypto traders and investors should invest only as much as they are ready to loose in case of a total wipeout. Moreover, everyone should critically question expert opinions suggesting to buy cryptocurrencies.

Right now we see a great opportunity to divest at attractive levels. It is highly likely that the situation will change. A total wipeout is not unlikely in the near future.

Vicious Trio Keeps Bitcoin in Chokehold / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Mike_McAra

The craziness of it. Bitcoin has been storming up and down, from $20,000 to $6,000 and back to $11,000 again. This volatility makes most traders’ stomachs churn, their faces go pale and their palms start to sweat. As if this action weren’t enough, an unknown trader has put their money where their mouth is – all $400 million of it. One can’t help but wonder what in the market justifies such an extreme move. On the Fortune website, we read:

An anonymous trader has sunk $400 million—enough to buy New York state’s most expensive home twice with change left over—into the cryptocurrency, raising his or her stake from 55,000 coins to more than 96,000 between Feb. 9 and Feb. 12. And that buy-in is already paying substantial returns.

Bitcoin as Poison / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Mike_McAra

The views on Bitcoin among various investors are quite polarized. The whole spectrum includes both people directly owning the cryptocurrency and those who seem to hate it. We have read analyses suggesting that a surprising percentage of hedge fund managers own digital coins. At the same time, Warren Buffett's investment chief, Charlie Munger, called Bitcoin “noxious poison.” Do such words mean that Bitcoin is doomed? In an article on the Guardian website, we read:

Bitcoin is heading towards $10,000 again, despite comments from the US billionaire Charles Munger who described the digital currency as “noxious poison”.

(…)

Speaking at the annual meeting of the US publishing firm Daily Journal, which he chairs, in Los Angeles on Wednesday, Munger said: “I never considered for one second having anything to do with it. I detested it the moment it was raised. It’s just disgusting. Bitcoin is noxious poison.”
