Bitcoin Price Watch; Trading The Dip "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Things are moving incredibly fast in the bitcoin price right now so, just as we did this morning, we are going to jump straight into our analysis so as not to miss any opportunities for entry on the action that we are seeing.

Anybody that is watching the space in real time will know that online wallet provider Coinbase is experiencing some difficulties with Litecoin and Ethereum transactions and this is translating to some immediate downside pressure in the bitcoin price, purely based on the fact that it exposes the relative youth of even one of the biggest companies in this sector as far as dealing with increased volume is concerned.

Thats the fundamental side of the equation.

Forgetting that for now, however, lets get levels in place that we can use going forward and see if we can take advantage of even the downside action.

As ever, take a quick look at the chart below before we get started so as to get an idea where things stand and where we are looking to jump in and out of the markets according to the rules of our intraday strategy. The chart is a one-minute candlestick charting and it has our primary range overlaid in green.

As the chart shows, the range that we are looking at for the session this evening comes in as defined by support to the downside at 17058 and resistance to the upside at 17352.

Standard breakout rules apply going forward.

Specifically, we will look at entering a long position if we get a close above resistance with a stop loss at 17320 and a target at 17410.

Looking the other way, if price closes below support, we will enter short towards 17000 and a stop loss somewhere in the region of 17075 will ensure we are taken out of the position if things turn against us.

IcyWallet Offers a Cold Storage Bitcoin Wallet for the Visually Impaired "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

IcyWallet Offers a Cold Storage Bitcoin Wallet for the Visually Impaired

Safely storing cryptocurrency can be confusing, especially for newcomers to the space, but for people with visual impairments, finding an accessible option is especially challenging.

IcyWallet is a cold wallet with a difference: it is designed to make it as simple as possible for people with visual impairments to manage offline bitcoin storage.

The project got its start when Adam Newbold and his wife took a braille reading course as a learning activity. Shortly afterward, Newbold struck up a Reddit conversation with a blind Bitcoin enthusiast who expressed frustration with the lack of support for the blind community from Bitcoin software developers. None of the wallets worked correctly in his reader and he required help to perform any functions with bitcoin.

I learned even more about practical accessibility issues and the real-world challenges that the blind encounter every day, Newbold told Bitcoin Magazine. This turned into a stronger personal interest that merged with my existing interest in Bitcoin when I realized that there are pretty big opportunities for improving the state of accessibility in Bitcoin software.

That first success led Newbold to create the IcyWallet. His goal is to provide a 100 percent free and open source bitcoin hardware wallet for the blind. Work is currently underway with early milestones achieved, the progress of which is tracked on their website.

New In-Game Cryptocurrency Systems Let You Buy Assets in the Virtual World

High Fidelity is announcing the launch of Avatar Island, a VR domain where High Fidelity users can purchase items for their avatars, all contributed by digital artists from around the world.

High Fidelity is a next-generation platform for Virtual Reality (VR) worlds developed by Philip Rosedale, the creator of the once very popular Second Life. In September 2017, the company announced that it was developing a blockchain for intellectual property protection and an in-game cryptocurrency .

Ive been looking at blockchain technology since Second Life, as the Linden dollar was one of the first digital goods currencies, said Rosedale. At the time that Bitcoin came out, I was thinking a lot about how we could generalize what we did at Second Life. I didnt have all of the ideas, but in the last few quarters we have been building the backend system to make all of this work.

Different sorts of VR items, such as custom wearables for avatars (which were and still are very successful in the Second Life marketplace) will be sold and bought in Avatar Island through a new cryptocurrency running on a blockchain, which will also track the history and ownership of each item.

DASH and Litecoin Analysis December 13, 2017 "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

DASH/USD

DASH rallied again during the day, reaching towards the $840 level. At this point, a continuation of that move seems very likely, and therefore we are bullish of DASH. Pullbacks should be supported, with the $720 level offering a bit of a floor. The target is $1000 going forward.

 

LTC/USD

Litecoin has gone parabolic, meaning that we are testing the $300 level as I record this. Buying at this point is reckless and the second dumbest thing I can think of doing in this market. The first of course would be shorting this type of move, because even though a pullback is necessary, stepping in front of a runaway freight train is a great way to blow your account. Look for pullbacks to take advantage of, but we have clearly gone far too parabolic to get involved now.

Thank you for watching, Ill see you tomorrow.

Ethereum Analysis December 13, 2017 "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

ETH/USD

Ethereum broke out over the last day, clearing the $500 level. It now looks to go parabolic and race towards the $600 level, which is the extension of a measured move from the previous rectangle. $600 should offer resistance, so look for a pullback at that point. $500 should be support going forward.

 

ETH/BTC

Ethereum continues to rally against Bitcoin, but as I stated yesterday, the 0.035 level is offering resistance. At this point, it looks likely that a pullback could happen, but a move above that level sends this pair looking for the 0.04 level above which is of course psychological resistance.

Thanks for watching, Ill be back tomorrow.

Bitcoin Analysis December 13, 2017 "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

BTC/USD

Bitcoin dipped a bit during the trading session on Tuesday, but found the $16,000 level to be supportive enough to send the market to the upside, perhaps getting ready to reach towards the $18,000 level. At this point, it looks as if short-term pullbacks are buying opportunities and that the $16 level is going to be a bit of a floor in the market.

 

BTC/JPY

Bitcoin continues to be very flat during the trading session on Tuesday, as the 2 million levels offer resistance. I think that short-term pullbacks will probably be buying opportunities though, but if we can break above the 2 million level, the buyers should continue to go to the 2.3 million level above. Pullbacks should be supported to the 1.5 level below.

Thanks for watching, Ill be back tomorrow.

Andreas Antonopoulos Receives a $1.5 Bitcoin Donation With $13.46 in Fees "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

One of the bigger stories last week how Andreas Antonopoulos received a lot of Bitcoin donations. After being publicly shamed by Roger Ver, the community showed their goodwill. One thing that seemed to go by unnoticed is how the high Bitcoin fees play a big role in all of this as well. More specifically, one donation worth $1.5 carried a $13.46 transaction fee. Bitcoin becomes less and less suited as a currency every single week, to say the least.

Bitcoin has a lot of network issues these days. While the transaction delays are almost solved, the fee situation is still worrisome. The recent Andreas Antonopoulos donation spree only confirms as much. One particular donation had almost 10 times its original value in transaction fees. Such a development is absolutely unacceptable, to say the very least.

Bitcoin Fees are Bonkers

It also goes to show Bitcoin is less and less suited for actual payments. With these exuberant fees, the ecosystem is evolving in the wrong direction. Spending over $13 to send someone $1.5 is getting ridiculous. It could have been a $15 donation straight to Andreas, but the fees made that impossible. This situation has been problematic for some time now. It doesnt appear as if a solution will be introduced in the near future either.

Rest assured this particular transaction will get a lot of community attention. It is true a high fee was required to get transactions confirmed quicker. However, paying double digits in fees to spend a buck and a half is not acceptable whatsoever.  Unfortunately, this situation will remain rather problematic for some time to come. It is evident such high costs will only become more apparent as time progresses.

Whether or not situations like these will force people to altcoins, remains to be seen. ...

Cappasity hits exchange and invites to VR/AR meetup "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

The Cappasity platform is a decentralized AR/VR Ecosystem for 3D content exchange. The platform allows users to create the content, sell it via the marketplace and embed it into websites, as well as mobile and AR/VR applications. appasity overcomes the most important obstacle to the AR/VR content pipeline how to quickly produce thousands of 3D images. This year appasity team is going to release free plugins for Unity and Unreal Engine so that anyone could easily integrate content from the Cappasity platform.

Cappasitys ICO has received wide public support over 13,000 people registered on the crowdsale portal.

Cappasity Token was issued as a digital payment vehicle that facilitates 3D content exchange and services among the Ecosystem participants from all over the globe. Immediately after the token was listed on HitBTC, its price has gone up and now is amounted to $0.02. During Phase 1 of the crowdsale, the price was only $0.008.

To support the most active content creators and developers of AR/VR/3D software, Cappasity establishes the AR/VR Innovation Fund. The fund is aimed to reward the developers of the most promising apps.

Cappasity has provided insight into those who have already been using the platform:

Cappasitys platform is mainly used by retail e-commerce. Online retailers digitize product catalogs to demonstrate their merchandise in 3D on their websites. Many of them have been already developing VR/AR applications for their customers or are considering an opportunity to use them, said Natalie Reyes, Chief Sales Officer of Cappasity. In addition, we have just recently started our collaboration with The New York Academy of Art. The partnership is aimed to display 3D images of art pieces online for almost everything the Academys website, students art portfolios, exhibitions, fundraising auctions, etc. The Academy and Cappasity also plan to offer virtual reality tours of the Academys major exhibitions and galleries.

The Academy is the first of 30 US educational institution that will utilize Cappasitys technology.

Today, the vast majority of our clients is based in Europe and the USA. However, the platform will be launched in China at the beginning of next year.

Who is to Dominate IOT? ETC or IOTA? "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

This November saw IOTAs market cap octupled, securing this cryptocurrencys top 4 rank across the board and ahead of Ripple, a well-established peer token. IOT is where IOTA applies and the selling point in its pitch deck. Given the heated status quo of IOT in recent years, its no wonder to spot a markup on IOTA. ETC, another digital currency with good standing, also starts to deploy its presence in IOT which it deems key to achieve a breakthrough. We have conducted a comparative analysis of these two IOT forces in an effort to determine who will be the final winner in this practice.

ETC is an Ethereum-based digital currency with the system well operated for a long period. The core ETC development team consists of experienced blockchain technocrats and the way a tech solution is determined and implemented follows the principle of democracy and science. The technology that IOTA applies is akin to Raiden Network or Lightning Network, the cutting-edge technologies in nature. Bitcoins core development team was the first to propose using Lightning Network to address the tokens scaling debate. But thats more in theory than in practice, which is widely accepted by the community for lacking in tests of stability.

The theory and principles of cryptography for ETC were previously adopted, proven and optimized in other IT areas. They are mature, safe, reliable and efficient information technologies. IOTA uses a balanced ternary (a numerical system represented by three-digit numbers) on a binary hardware device, which leads to an overly complex system design and a reduction in computational efficiency. Another serious problem with this design is the need to redesign the cryptographic hashing algorithm, which poses a serious safety risk. Simply put, this technology is still only stuck in the theoretical stage, too avant-garde to have the value of the practical application.

The issuance of ETC is completely decentralized, the coin price is not readily susceptible to manipulation, and a new currency policy will be implemented to systematically guarantee the total supply of ETC, making it a deflated digital currency with value of storage. IOTA, an ICO project in 2014, remains tepid. A few users controlled the majority of the tokens of IOTA, leaving the price easily manipulated and resulting in octupled price hike within less than a month. This centralized trend is detrimental to the long-term development of the community. IOTA does not require mining and transaction fees. Each participant provides the network with hashrate and the lack of incentive programs can do harm to the stability of IOTA network.

Tangle, the technology that IOTA uses, is not a real blockchain but merely to solve the problem of blockchain expansion, making blockchain a pretext of IOTA. That said, even IOTA can be applied in IOT as a technology, it is not tradable as a digital currency....

Introducing DenCity: Worlds First Blockchain Enabled City "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

On October 31, 2008, a mysterious person named Satoshi Nakamoto published his famous whitepaper introducing world to a Peer to Peer mode of payments he called bitcoin. This P2P currency was based on a technology named Blockchain, a distributed ledger in which transactions are recorded publicly and chronologically. Then, in 2013, a 19 year old from Canada, Vitalik Buterin, came up with the concept of Ethereum which included Smart Contracts protocol which gave Blockchain its much needed first real push.

Since then, its been an upward ride for Blockchain. Since 2013, many blockchain startups have come up in different sectors ranging from healthcare to education. There is Status for messaging, Ripple for payments, IOTA for Internet Of Things who are leading development in their sectors. However, a city built on Blockchain encompasses everything and puts all these services into one bucket. Blockchain eliminates all centers of power in an environment and makes all the processes and records openly available to the public.

This is our vision behind building DenCity, a city governed by its citizens namely, Denizens.

Location, Climate & Landscape

dencity

DenCity, located on the banks of Den river, has more than a third of its area covered with lush green grass and forests. The remaining part of the city is covered with plain lands where people can come and set up their homes, industries and marketplaces.

Surrounded by a beach on one side and mountains on the another, the climate in DenCity is in perfect balance which is neither too hot nor too cold and is warm and sunny throughout the year. Plus, the weekends here are really fun with a lot of beautiful places to explore.

Talking about the landscape, only 17.3% of the area is covered with ready-made villas while the remaining area is empty land which is open for sale to the new denizens. Any denizen can buy a plot here in the city by DNX,which is an ERC20 compliant cryptocurrency for this city.

Bitcoin Price Watch; Lets Get Trading! "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Its Tuesday morning and its time to take a look at how action in the bitcoin price played overnight and in turn try to figure out how we can incorporate said action into a forward strategy today. Normally we spend a bit of time on some backdated analysis but, during the early session, things are moving incredibly fast. As such, if we take up too much time we might miss an entry.

So, with this in mind, lets get things moving right away.

As ever, take a quick look at the chart below before we get started so as to get an idea where things stand and where we are looking to jump in and out of the markets according to the rules of our intraday strategy. The chart is a one-minute candlestick chart and its got our key range overlaid in green.

As the chart shows, the range we are using for the session today comes in as defined by support to the downside at 16559 and resistance to the upside at 16730.

We are going to stick with our standard breakout strategy for the time being, purely because thats the best sort of approach when we are facing consolidation type action (as we are at the moment) and, in turn, when we expect that the tight range we have outlined will break near term.

So, with that said, if we see price break above resistance, well be jumping in long towards an immediate upside target of 16800. A stop loss on the position somewhere in the region of 16700 will take us out of the trade if things turn against us.

Looking the other way, if we see price close below support, we will jump in short towards a downside target of 16500.

Lets see how things play out.

CBOE Bitcoin Futures Bring in Adequate Volume but Bullish Sentiment Isnt There yet "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

CBOEs Bitcoin futures have been of great interest to Bitcoin enthusiasts. More specifically, there has been some initial interest in this product during the first day. While the volume isnt exactly spectacular, its still a lot better than most people would have thought. Moreover, the futures price hit $18,000 at one point, although there is no major bullish sentiment to speak of right now.

The first day of Bitcoin futures trading has been somewhat eventful. Albeit nothing major happened during the first 24 hours, it will remain an interesting industry to keep an eye on. More specifically, the contracts spiked to a value of $18,000, which was somewhat to be expected. Unfortunately, the Bitcoin price itself didnt exactly follow this pattern, despite some solid momentum. It seems this new investment vehicle will have no real impact on the global BTC value for now.

CBOE Futures Make a Small Impact

With just 3,400 GXBT in volume, the demand has been less steep than people had hoped. There is no major investor bull run for these products whatsoever. Whether or not that will change when CME offers their products, remains to be seen. All of the major anticipation regarding this product has been vastly overstated so far. It is evident there are still some issues to work out in this regard.

Very few clients can effectively access the CBOE futures right now. This is mainly due to brokers restricting client access during the first day. It is possible this situation will resolve itself in the coming days and weeks. However, for now, no major changes should be expected whatsoever. There is a genuine demand for BTC futures, though, that much is evident. Whether or not this will impact the actual Bitcoin price, remains to be seen.

Most of the initial sentiment has quieted down already as well. Despite a major run to $18,000 early on, the market calmed down quite a bit. It is evident Bitcoins strong run throughout 2017 has already resulted in most of the gains one could expect. These CBOE futures may not necessarily impact the price in any significant way. A few interesting weeks are ahead for the worlds leading cryptocurrency, to say the least.

Muir: "People Are Going To Be Wiped Out" By Short-VIX ETFs "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

 

Key warning.   The present market has now built up a catastrophic level of leverage and a completely reasonable move will likely crater the brokerage industry itself.  The prudent man not only exits the clearly super leveraged securities if he is aboard at all, but also shifts his capital into safe haven securities or even into cash.


Right now the Bitcoin market boom has made folks seriously reckless.   Yet Bitcoin is no stock.  It is something uniquely different and will not impact stocks directly but has encouraged a crowd of doubtful stock scammers.  look out.  Through all this we have built up a dangerous appetite for unwinnable risks.


As said by many in our distant past, many stock booms ago, even a turkey flies in a high wind.

Ethereum Classic Price Technical Analysis ETC/USD Remains Buy "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Key Highlights

  • Ethereum classic price is moving nicely above the $26.00 support level against the US Dollar.
  • There is a crucial contracting triangle forming with support at $26.50 on the hourly chart of the ETC/USD pair (Data feed via Kraken).
  • The pair might soon make the next move and will most likely break the $28.00 resistance.

Ethereum classic price is placed in the bullish zone against the US Dollar and Bitcoin. ETC/USD may soon break $28.00 to test the $30.00 level in the near term.

Ethereum Classic Price Support

The current bias is positive for ETC price above the $25.00 and $26.00 support levels against the US Dollar. The price was seen trading higher from the $22.50 swing low and recently moved above the $25.00 resistance. The recent low as $24.30 from where the price made a nice upside move and traded above the 100 hourly simple moving average. At the moment, the price is above $27.00 and looks set for more gains.

Looking at the hourly chart of ETC/USD, there is a crucial contracting triangle forming with support at $26.50. The pair is currently struggling to break the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $30.25 high to $24.30 low. Once the pair breaks the triangle resistance and the 76.4% % Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $30.25 high to $24.30 low, it could retest $30.00. Above the mentioned $30.00, the price could even move towards the $32.00 level.

Ethereum Classic Price Technical Analysis ETC USD

On the downside, there is a major support around $26.50 and the 100 hourly simple moving average. The pair must stay above the $26.00-26.50 support in order to gain pace for an upside break.

Hourly MACD The MACD for ETC/USD is almost flat and is currently showing no signs of a break.

Hourly RSI The RSI for ETC/USD is above the 50 level and is pointing bullish signs.

Major Support Level $26.00

Big Bullish love for Ethereum and Litecoin "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

The Bitcoin Bulls dominated last week with some heavy swings in both directions but mainly upwards. Cryptos King made all the major news channels and papers as it shot from just over $11,000 to over $18,000 in less than a week. Regulated US exchanges launching their futures contracts also added to the zeal in the crypto-sphere.

This week it is time for some of the altcoins to get some Bullish love. Two of the top traded assets, Ethereum and Litecoin both broke record levels and traded at all-time highs during the Asian trading session this morning. LTC has been having a monster run over the past four days, climbing almost 150% from $100 on Friday to over $250 today.

Data from Coinmarketcap.com shows that $4.2 billion dollars has been traded in Litecoin in the past 24 hours. Top exchange was GDAX, which is owned by Coinbase, handling over a billion dollars of that trade and almost 25% of the total. LTC is huge in South Korea so it came as no surprise that Bithumb was the second exchange in terms of transactions with almost $500,000 traded in the past 24 hours, which equated to 11.6% of the total.

Founder Charlie Lee remains cautious however and Tweeted that trading was extremely risky.

Litecoin was not alone in the crypto bullpen today. After three weeks of slumber Ethereum finally woke up and headed skywards. From trading sideways between $440 and $460 ETH broke key resistance levels and made moves towards the critical $500 level. It had previously tested this price in late November but failed to break through.

The CryptoKitties fad which drove previous prices up resulted in the network getting drowned in digital moggies. Transactions slowed to Bitcoinesque speeds and traders waited hours for their ETH to clear. The network was slow to recover but recover it did today when it reached an all-time peak of $552 before correcting back to the $525 level where it currently trades.

Big banking news is likely to have caused the some of the rotation out of Bitcoin into Ethereum. Reports that major financial institutions including UBS, Credit Suisse, Thomson Reuters, KBC, SIX, and Barclays were planning to adopt smart contracts based on Ethereum provided a long awaited boost to the blockchain.

Those with altcoin investments will be having a happy Tuesday as both Litecoin and Ethereum have come out on top today.

MONERO BULLS NOW EYE $300 TECHNICAL ANALYSIS December 12, 2017 "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Even after period of consolidation, DASH, NEM and Monero bulls are now inching higher towards their respective resistance lines. Of note today is that consolidation of IOTA.

This was expected given the gains in recent weeks but we still retain our bullish skew.

There is high expectations of LTC expansion in the coming days given the rigorous marketing plans the founder and his team has.

Lets look at the charts:

20 PERIOD MA A STRONG SUPPORT FOR NEM BULLS

alt coin NEM 4HR chart technical analysis XEMUSD 4HR Chart for December 12, 2017

NEM bulls are in charge. Nonetheless, price action is quite tepid unlike the last two or three days. The good thing is that price is slowly inching higher.

As mentioned on December 11, every retest of the 20 period MA should be a wonderful buying opportunity now that we have a stochastic buy signal.

DASH BULLS IN CHARGE

alt coin DASH 4HR chart technical analysisDASHUSD 4HR Chart for December 12, 2017

As per yesterdays recommendation, any close above the immediate resistance trend line meant that bulls were in charge.

Well, on December 11, did close above that resistance line. On top of this, there is a stochastic buy signal in place meaning DASH bulls are in charge.

Any retest of the trend line is another buy opportunity with immediate targets at $820.

IOTA BULLS MOVING WITHIN A WEDGE

alt coin IOTA 4HR chart technical analysisIOTUSD 4HR Chart for December 12, 2017

Bitcoin Is a Bit of a Miracle at Any Price "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

That is the title of my latest Bloomberg column.  Rather than giving you the main argument, lets instead cut to the end:

The real story of bitcoin is a heartening one of community. Less than 10 years ago, the bitcoin asset was worth virtually nothing, but a small group of people believed in it and worked tirelessly to promote it, and now the whole world is watching. Its a tale at least as old as Christ and the Apostles. Maybe the bitcoin believers are as much of a miracle story as that of the brilliant inventor Satoshi.

The thing is, I dont always believe in miracle stories of community, not in these days of declining governance and possibly fraying social order. Yet Ive become emotionally involved in tracking the bitcoin price, perhaps because I realize that if one such miracle of ex nihilo creation can be sustained, others are on the way. I dont think bitcoin is a bubble, but every morning I wake up doubting.

More broadly the piece considers what should be the appropriate price for Bitcoin.

There was a good upside reaction in Ripple price recently as it moved above the $0.2350 level against the US Dollar. The upside move was strong as the price was able to move above the $0.2400 and $0.2500 resistance levels. Earlier, there was a minor correction towards 50% Fib retracement level of the last leg from the $0.2050 low to $0.2490 high. However, buyers appeared and pushed the price above $0.2400.

During the upside, yesterdays highlighted contracting triangle with resistance at $0.2400 was broken on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair. The pair recently traded as high as $0.2612 and is currently placed well above the 100 hourly simple moving average. It seems like there can be more gains above $0.2600 in the near term.

Ripple Price Technical Analysis XRP USD

Ethereum and Waves to setup self-regulation "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Recent clampdowns on ICOs by a number of nations, China being the most prominent, have been spurred by the need for more regulation. Currently trading in crypto-land can be a bit like going to the casino in the Wild West. There is no safety net and no regulation on ICOs; anyone can start something up. All you need is a flashy website, some smart looking business people in your team, a good concept, and of course a blockchain which is getting easier to create. Then it is just the matter of asking for funding to support it.

The issue is being tackled by blockchain platform Waves which will be setting up an independent regulatory body. The idea of governments regulating crypto currencies goes against the entire ethos of decentralized assets and data so the crypto firms have decided to do it themselves. The new association will provide reporting, legal, tax & accounting, KYC (identity verification), and business due diligence standards for the ICO and blockchain industry.

Switzerland was chosen as the base for the association, probably for its ease of doing business with transparency and minimal state interference. All crypto exchanges, blockchain platforms, market leaders, ICOs, marketing companies and crypto businesses will be welcome to participate.

Support has already been forth coming from Ethereum and industry-leading audit, consulting, tax, and advisory services firm Deloitte. The ICO Governance Foundation stated that they will be working to coordinate on cross-platform ICO disclosure protocols.

Vladislav Martynov, Ethereums Advisory Board member, had this to say about the association:

Joint and voluntary initiatives such as this self-regulatory body for token sales are a critical element in the professionalization of the blockchain industry. As custodians of some of the most remarkable and disruptive technology ever created, we must be seen to be fostering its responsible use as well as building functionality and maintaining the security of the ecosystem,

Waves Platform CEO and founder, Alexander Ivanov, added:

Regulation is clearly an emerging phenomenon and concern in the crypto space. If certain jurisdictions have not yet announced their intentions, then its only a matter of time. Waves has always been clear that regulation the right kind of regulation is a good thing for the crypto space. We have also been clear that we want to be a part of that emerging dialogue. We want a seat at the table to be able to shape the future of regulation in the ICO and blockchain space,

Swiss based association will be registered by Waves over the next couple of months. The crypto asset is currently trading at an all-time high of over $11.

Ethereum Price Technical Analysis ETH/USD Surges to New All-time High "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Key Highlights

  • ETH price spikes higher and breaks the $500 and $515 resistance levels against the US Dollar.
  • There was a break above a major contracting triangle with resistance at $470 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD (data feed via SimpleFX).
  • The pair is currently unstoppable and it might soon blast towards the $550 level.

Ethereum price is rocketing higher against the US Dollar and Bitcoin. ETH/USD is surging higher towards the next major resistance at $550.

Ethereum Price Upside Surge

There were solid gains in ETH price recently from the $420-430 swing low against the US Dollar. The price gained heavy bids and was able to move above the last swing high at $497 and even broke the $500 level. A new all-time high was formed above $525 and it seems like the price is unstoppable at the moment. It has breached the 1.236 extension of the last wave from the $497 high to $421 low.

During the upside move, there was a break above a major contracting triangle with resistance at $470 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. The pair is now placed well above the $500 level and is eyeing more gains. The next major upside target could be the $550 level. An intermediate resistance is around the 1.618 extension of the last wave from the $497 high to $421 low near $544. It seems like ETH buyers are now in full action and it could even rally just like bitcoin.

Ethereum Price Technical Analysis ETH USD

We can see continuing gains towards $600 in the near term. On the downside, the broken resistance at $497-500 may act as a support. However, the most important support is now at $450 and the 100 hourly simple moving average.

Hourly MACD The MACD is gaining heavy momentum in the bullish zone.

Hourly RSI The RSI has reached the extreme overbought conditions with no sign of a pullbacks.

Bitcoin Cash Price Technical Analysis Can BCH/USD Break This? "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Key Points

  • Bitcoin cash price is testing an important resistance and attempting a break above $1425 against the US Dollar.
  • Yesterdays highlighted crucial bearish trend line with current resistance at $1405 is intact on the hourly chart of BCH/USD (data feed from Kraken).
  • The price might soon break the $1400 and $1425 resistance levels to gain upside momentum.

Bitcoin cash price is slowly moving higher toward $1425 against the US Dollar. BCH/USD needs to clear the $1405-1425 hurdle to gain further momentum.

Bitcoin Cash Price Upside Hurdle

There was a slow and steady rise in bitcoin cash price above the $1360 pivot against the US Dollar. The price was able to move above the $1380 resistance levels. More importantly, there was a break of the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $1505 high to $1202 low. It has opened the doors for more gains above $1400 in the near term.

However, yesterdays highlighted crucial bearish trend line with current resistance at $1405 is intact on the hourly chart of BCH/USD. It is acting as a major barrier for more gains above $1425. A proper close above the trend line, $1425 and then $1440 is required for buyers to take control. On the downside, an initial support is around the $1350 level. The mentioned $1350 level is near the 100 hourly simple moving average. Moreover, the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $1202 low to $1446 high is also around $1350.

Bitcoin Cash Price Technical Analysis BCH USD

Therefore, the $1350 level is a major support. Below $1350, there is a connecting bullish trend line with support at $1325. The stated $1325 is also a key support since it is the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $1202 low to $1446 high.

Looking at the technical indicators:

Hourly MACD The MACD for BCH/USD is almost flat and is showing no signs of momentum.

Hourly RSI (Relative Strength Index) The RSI for BCH/USD is currently near 56 and is moving down.

Major Support Level $1350

Analyst: They ultimately need the financial markets to implode "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Market analyst Lynette Zang says even with the new tax cuts passed in Congress, the market looks like "it's running out of steam." Zang explains, "I have been noticing in the past month some pattern shifts that would indicate to me the market is struggling and breaking down. So, these tax cuts make earnings per share look a lot better and also brings back a lot of funds. . . . The CEOs are saying that money will go into share buybacks, and they need to because that is shifting. . . . Corporate buy backs are actually breaking down." Zang says ever since the 2008 meltdown, the elite have just been buying time to set up a debt reset. Zang charges, "I am 100% certain we are in the middle of a money standard shift. Ultimately, they need the markets to implode. . . . In 2008, the debt based system broke. It died, it was done. The central banks, globally, put it on life support, and they have to create a new system. In my opinion, they want us cashless, and they want everything in digital form. They want to dematerialize wealth at least for the masses. I am 100% certain that this Bitcoin craze, and all of this, is about getting people used to digital currencies. So, when they shift us from the debt based system to the digital system, we are more comfortable with it and more familiar with it."

Bitcoin Price Technical Analysis for 12/12/2017 Correction Completed! "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Bitcoin Price Key Highlights

  • Bitcoin price has recovered from its drop after reading new highs a few days back.
  • Price is now at the 76.4% extension level on the latest pullback and could have enough momentum to make it to the full extension.
  • However, technical indicators are showing weakening energy among buyers.

Bitcoin price has completed its pullback from the rally earlier in the month and could be ready to take on new highs.

Technical Indicators Signals

The 100 SMA is above the longer-term 200 SMA, so the path of least resistance is to the upside. This means that bitcoin price is more likely to sustain the rally than to reverse from the uptrend.

Price is also inside a long-term ascending channel but is closing in on the resistance, which means that profit-taking is imminent. In that case, another dip to the support is still possible. This floor is right in between the moving averages, which might also hold as dynamic support.

Stochastic is heading lower to indicate that selling pressure is in play. RSI is also making its way down from the overbought region to signal a pickup in bearish momentum.

Market Factors

Apart from that, US CPI and retail sales figures are also on this weeks lineup and a strong showing could reinforce tightening expectations for next year, which might buoy the currency higher against bitcoin price.

As for bitcoin itself, the CBOE futures launch has been mostly positive, barring the outage that occurred due to unexpectedly high volumes. CME and Nasdaq will launch their bitcoin futures soon.

Covesting, the first crypto copy-trading platform, has announced Kurt Carlsson and Peter Kristenson have joined the team as Chief Commercial Officer and Head of Markets accordingly. Covesting has grown exponentially over the last few months, and continues to bring new team members on after their Pre-ICO raised over $1.1M. Both Kurt and Peter were original employees at the start of Saxo Bank, and have grown into very influential figures in the world of investment banking and private asset management. Covesting, which was founded by two other ex-Saxo Bankers, is allowing ordinary investors to copy the trades of the most successful professional cryptocurrency traders on the market.

After officially incorporating in Gibraltar, Covesting decided to expand its roadmap with several big initiatives such as liquidity aggregation, a trading terminal, and the Crypto Intelligence Portal. The significance of a liquidity aggregator and a trading terminal cannot be underestimated. The combined technologies would allow traders to execute trades through many of the largest exchanges in the world, all through the Covesting platform.

Their ICO was recently rated as one of the lowest risk ICOs on the market, with very solid growth potential as their token can not only be used to copy-trade but was designed to appreciate in value through buy-back and burn methods. Over 2,500 contributors have already gotten involved in the project, and this number figures to grow after a recent announcement to lower the hard cap of their tokensale, while giving all contributors bonus tokens.

Covesting has proven itself to be one of the smartest, and safest ICO investments despite the extreme volatility and uncertainty that has always existed with ICOs. The Covesting team has lowered the cost per token by a factor of 4, while keeping the total supply of tokens the same, meaning the team reduced the value of their own holdings by 400% in order to make the cost of the token more affordable to the community.

Munchee ICO Halted by SEC for Securities Violations "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Munchee ICO Halted by SEC for Securities Violations

On December 11, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commision (SEC) issued a cease-and-desist to California-based Munchee Inc. to stop their ICO and return the funds that had been collected.

Munchee had been seeking $15 million in capital to improve their existing mobile app and create a restaurant review ecosystem that they described as being Yelp meets Instagram in their Bitcointalk announcement. The problem arose when Munchee emphasized that it would take steps to create a secondary market for the tokens as an investment vehicle, leading investors to have a reasonable belief that their tokens would rise in value, long in advance of the utility of the token being made available.

In the SEC announcement, Stephanie Avakian, co-director of the SEC Enforcement Division, said, We will continue to scrutinize the market vigilantly for improper offerings that seek to sell securities to the general public without the required registration or exemption. In deciding not to impose a penalty, the Commission recognized that the company stopped the ICO quickly, immediately returned the proceeds before issuing tokens, and cooperated with the investigation.

In the SEC complaint, the commission argued that the MUN tokens were considered securities because they were investment contracts and were deemed a security regardless of their utility at the time of the sale. Munchee consented to the SECs order without admitting to, or denying, the findings.

The action is significant as it shows the willingness of the SEC to step in and take action. It also illustrates a willingness on the part of the SEC to work with companies that are cooperative when they run afoul of the regulations.

One cryptocurrency to rule them all "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

http://loggiaonfire.com/stream/S1511627118.html

As a recent convert to Cryptocurrencianism, the first thing that came into my field of view as I started to explore this new universe was, predictably, Bitcoin. And after receiving some Bitcoin and learning how to handle it safely and properly, I became curious about some of the other cryptocurrencies on offer. I also became curious about the people involved. And it became immediately apparent that, while there was a general camaraderie among crypto enthusiasts of all stripes, there was also fierce competition afoot between the supporters of different coins and platforms. Who would be the Winner?

In a very real sense, this is natural. Anything involving money or, more accurately, value on this planet inevitably becomes an economy and therefore attracts business. And when business-minded people look to recent history they see a very clear trend when it comes to emerging techno-business sectors. Most of the time we quickly see two, possibly three, front-runners emerge, while a slew of also-rans struggle in a pack, miles behind.

Perhaps the most striking example of this...

Bitcoin Futures Are Here: The Story So Far "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

cboefutures.jpg

The week ahead will give better future indication of Bitcoin derivatives products as yesterday at 6 p.m. EST, the Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE) allowed bitcoin futures to begin trading under the symbol XBT. Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME) is set to allow futures trading in the cryptocurrency of their own accord on December 18, 2017. Bitcoin futures were up over 20 percent leading into the U.S. market open. Current appetite for the futures contracts seems to show a stronger preference for near-term bitcoin futures priced above the current spot rate. According to the CBOE twitter feed, over 800 contracts were traded in the first two hours.

They are currently worth $3.6 billion, which is enough to pay off a fifth of the country's national debt of $16.5 billion. Dozens of people were arrested in May following an investigation by the Southeast European Law Enforcement Center (SELC) into an alleged customs fraud, according to the article. Police confiscated 213,519 bitcoins, at the time worth $500 million. The seized amount is now approximately worth a staggering $3.6 billion due to the digital currency's bull run.

Market Talk- December 11, 2017 "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

A strong session from Asia to open the week with Hang Seng and Shanghai both higher by 1%. Having seen a brief wobble at the start of trading, the move was quickly rejected and we traded from strength to strength. Energy, Tech and Financials were the leaders for the day with volumes actually increasing slightly in what is probably fair to say the last busy week of the year. With three Central Banks announcing this week it is generally felt that only the FED will move on rates. Much of todays moves were the reaction to Fridays jobs report, but there is a little hype surrounding the BITCOIN futures contract; which continues to play in a world of its own. The Nikkei also managed a 0.6% rally today with Financials another leader. Todays move hit a fresh 25-year high, whilst saw the Yen comfortably trading mid 113 range. This trend looks to want to continue with better stocks off-setting a weaker currency.

European markets were not so joyous as the Asian session even closing down on the day. FTSE was the only core market to finish in positive territory, but even that was probably because of the decline seen in Sterling. The FTSE closed down -0.8% whilst cable was last seen down -0.5%. Bothe the DAX and CAC small lower with losses in Telcos, Industrials and Utilities. UK press has been interesting reading of Theresa Mays compromise with claims of a statement of intent and not really a legal binding. Will be interesting to see how that plays out, especially once they start the trade negotiations stage. Not a good sign for either party really!

The terrorist scare early session was fortunately dismissed early, but did manage to bring the market back from their highs. The mood remains positive even as we approach Central Banks and the festive season. The end of this week is traditionally the end of volume trades, which will make it a little tricky this year as volumes are already light! Much of the talk today has centred on BITCOIN and the launch of the new futures contract. Oil has had a good day up around 1% but the same can not be said for gold which currently trades on support. The trend remain...

Dont Look Back With Big Regrets "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Dont Look Back With Big Regrets

Its Time to Seize the Moment!
Dear Reader,

We wont get another chance like this again.

2 weeks ago, I sent out an urgent alert for our top blockchain stock suggestion. Anyone who acted on the timing of that special situational alert is up big.

HIVEs share price has been under pressure in the past few weeks due to pre-public shares being freed this week.

This has created an enormous opportunity for us all right now

These are the facts:

1. HIVE has been mining Ethereum, which has gone from $300 to $475 since the company began to trade.

2. The company is cashed up (USD$49 million) and expanding its Swedish mining operations.

3. There isnt a single other company like them! Not one For all the talk of other public cryptocurrency and blockchain companies, none of them compare to HIVE.

HIVE is a combination of the brightest Bitcoin entrepreneurs, Genesis Mining, and some of the most sophisticated public company builders on the planet.Im talking about Frank Holmes, whos the chairman of U.S. Global Investors, which manages $3 billion.  Its a strategic partnership with the Fiore Group, which is the same team that created the Hollywood studio, Lionsgate Entertainment, as well as one of the largest gold companies in the world, Goldcorp.

Here are HIVEs revenue projections with Ethereum at $350 (today, its trading for $460):

Self-Sovereign Identity Leader, SelfKey, Announces Public Token Presale "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

December 11th, 2017  After a hugely successful private presale, in which over $5 million worth of KEY tokens were sold, blockchain-based digital identity firm, SelfKey, announced that their public presale of KEY tokens will begin on December 15th, 2017. It is expected that the public presale will be just as successful.

SelfKeys working technology platform is live and in use every day by customers all over the world to submit and verify KYC. It was built with the help of Standard Chartered Bank and has facilitated KYC for token sales such as Airswap, Aditus, Gatcoin, AiX, and Hotoken. It is also used by fintech/blockchain startups such as Polymath, Kommerce, ZILLA, Malabar.ai, TitanFx, DollarSmart, and the Hong Kong based exchange, Gatecoin, to name but a few.

It is not only blockchain-based companies that use SelfKey technology to onboard customers. NTL Trust, the oldest and most well-recognized citizenship and residency by investment authorized agent in the world, uses SelfKey to process citizenship and residency applications in over ten countries, through the blockchain.

The next generation of this technology platform is an identity wallet and marketplace powered by Selfkey Tokens (KEY). KEY is a utility token that must be staked to gain access to the network and spent to apply for identity notarizations and marketplace listings.

Through the SelfKey Identity Wallet, users can access their identity documents stored locally on their personal device. Since the documents wont be stored in any server, database, or blockchain, the SelfKey Identity Wallet prevents security and privacy issues.

Users digital identity is cryptographically signed and can only be decrypted by a public key, so if any service provider or certifier attempts to share it with a third party it would be unreadable since it will only be visible as a secure hash on the blockchain.

ID documents can be verified by qualified certifiers, such as an eNotary. These certifications will cost KEY tokens. After their documents are verified, users will be able to reuse their identity certifications to instantly apply for multiple products and services, without the need to repeat the verification process.

The Identity Wallet and the Marketplace allow people from all over the world to apply for citizenship and residency by investment, efficiently start a business by setting up a company, bank account, or a payment processor, and access fintech products such as virtual checking accounts.

Since the SelfKey application is capable of receiving, storing and transferring any ERC-20 t...

Cryptocurrency Investigation "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Revealing, Must-Watch Video!
Dear Reader,

I just finished watching a short new documentary by investigative journalist Jonathan Roth.

Its a must-watch; he travels to crypto valley and takes an inside look at this booming sector.

It features the first blockchain company to achieve a billion-dollar market cap, HIVE Blockchain Technologies (TSXV: HIVE).

From Jonathon Roths introductory letter to the documentary upon taking a closer look at the cryptocurrency space

Thats when I came upon HIVE Blockchain Technologies, a public company backed by Frank Giustra and Frank Holmes.  Giustra founded Lionsgate, and was also behind Goldcorp, one of the worlds largest gold miners.  Holmes is the CEO of U.S. Global Investors, a Texas-based investment advisor with nearly $3 billion under management.

From my point of view, what makes HIVE unique is that it is essentially a partnership between Giustras Fiore Group and Genesis Mining, the worlds largest cryptocurrency miner.  With over 1 million customers globally, Genesis is a very serious company.  It also owns 30% of HIVE, so its interests and HIVEs are aligned.

He goes on to say

Given its first-mover status, HIVE has a huge advantage over other players in...

More Firms Push for Bitcoin ETF in Wake of Futures Launch "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Following the launch of Bitcoin futures by the Chicago Board Options Exchange yesterday, Canadian news source The Globe and Mail have reported that a further two fund managers have joined the many existing applications with the SEC for a Bitcoin ETF. The firms in question are REX Shares LLC and Van Eck Associates Corp. Both hope to be the first to offer the financial product and aim to use the futures contracts coming to market to gain access to the Bitcoin price, without having to invest directly in it.

There is widespread optimism amongst many institutional investors that the launch of Bitcoin futures means that an ETF is now a matter of when rather than if. So far, however, the Securities and Exchange Commission has denied or shelved all similar applications. Proponents of such funds are hoping that the legitimacy that the futures market is bringing to the space could help prompt the SEC to start approving applications.

The most famous of the slew of ETF proposals came from the Winklevoss twins earlier this year. It was denied on the grounds that the currency trades in unregulated markets. Whilst their platform seeks to be the first direct-to-Bitcoin ETF, several other funds presented to the SEC since only seek access to the futures market. This, of course, is regulated, and as such, its believed that these stand a much greater chance of being accepted.

Eric Balchunas, an ETF analyst with Bloomberg intelligence told the Canadian news source:

The launch of the futures trading is just one more domino that seems to be falling into place in the approval of a bitcoin ETF.

Meanwhile, in Canada, at least two different firms have publicly filed to launch ETFs. There is growing sentiment from there that they could beat the US efforts to be the first Bitcoin exchange traded fund in North America. This is because their regulatory body are considered more liberal than their US counterparts. Steve Hawkins of Horizons ETFs weighed in on the race to bring the product to market:

There is an absolute race going on among both Canadian and US players who are scrambling to be the first ETF player in North America But there is a lot of push back at bank levels, auditor levels, regulator levels and security exchange levels. Much of this push back is around the fact that many dont know what bitcoin is and that it isnt your traditional currency, or that it hasnt actively traded in the market before. Everyone wants to be first doing this in the ETF space, but no one has real experience in the bitcoin market.

As the futures market settles and more join th...

The Bitcoin Rally Has Only Just Begun And This Is Why "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

The banking world used to laugh at the prospects of cryptocurrency and even the main Banker in the world Bob Diamond stated that it was a fraud. They are no longer laughing now as it continues to outperform every single asset and has done consistently now for the last three years. Many believe that it is a bubble but those that say that do not understand exactly how the Blockchain and cryptocurrency work.

Bitcoin has survived everything thrown at it including the kitchen sink, the same can not be said about fiat based currencies. If quantitative easing was to stop, all of the major banks around the world would collapse. With a derivatives market, 10 times the size of the whole banking sector and a bond market on the verge of collapse the safe bet is to store your money in a Bitcoin Wallet. It is the only place that the Governments cannot steal your hard earn money from and once the collapse happens, the current price of BTC will look like a tiny drop in the ocean.

Fiat money failed back in 2007/08 and rather than allowing the banks to go bankrupt they got bailed out by the taxpayer. When the largest Bitcoin exchange in the world MT Gox collapsed, no one bailed out the market and now we are seeing the different results of the two competing currencies.

Most people forget that the banking system has gone through many collapses in history and believe that it will be here for good. I can guarantee that during our lifetimes it will not survive in its present state and it is inevitable that cryptocurrency will become the mainstream currency of the world. With the likes of China and Russia looking to implement their own crypto, once they do it will speed up the collapse of the current financial system. The biggest worry is what happens when it does with the likes of Donald Trump in charge? Hopefully, we will not see world war three but a new future that is more transparent, fair and beneficial for every human on the planet.

If you want to avoid losing everything, it is vital that you hold a large part of your money in cryptocurrency. There are lots of Bitcoin wallets available that make holding and spending crypto as easy as fiat based currencies. I live purely on BTc and I used a Bitcoin wallet called cryptopay which provides me with a MasterCard that I can use anywhere in the world to spend my BTC.

It may not be Bitcoin that ends up being the number one cryptocurrency as the likes of Bitcoin Cash, Bitcoin Gold and Bitcoin Diamond all have a great number of benefits which make see one of the eventually overtake the leading digital currency. Etherium is also another great option if you are looking to get into the market as it is more stable than the others with many possibilities of becoming the leading currency in the future.

Bitcoin Price Watch; Heres Whats On Tonight "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

So we are closing in on the end of another day in our bitcoin price trading efforts and what a ride we have had so far. Things really started to pick up during the early morning session and havent really let up since, with price currently trading in and around the $16,000 mark and taking with it a number of the key levels that we outlined this morning as being levels to watch in the sector.

Right now, then, weve got to get some levels in place that take all this action into consideration and use it to adapt our strategy to current price action.

So, as we move into the US crossover and, beyond, into the Asian session tonight, heres a look at what we are focusing on from a bitcoin price perspective and where we intend to jump in to and out of the markets as and when things move. As ever, take a quick look at the chart below before we get started so as to get an idea where things stand. The chart is a one-minute candlestick chart and its got our primary range overlaid in green.

So, as the chart below shows, the range we have in place for the session tonight comes in as defined by support to the downside at 16049 and resistance to the upside at 16178. We will initially look for a close above resistance to validate an immediate upside target of 16250. A stop loss on the position somewhere in the region of 16155 looks good from a risk management perspective.

Looking the other way, if we see a close below support, were going to jump into a short entry towards an immediate downside target of 1600. This ones a little tighter, so a stop at 16060 looks good.

Lets see what happens.

Craigslist Adds Cryptocurrency Ok Option to Listings "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

The classified ads website Craigslist recently added the option for buyers and sellers to specify that theyd like to transact using cryptocurrency. The new feature was added late last week to little fanfare. It was another cryptocurrency news outlet that picked up the development that was subsequently reported in The Verge and other publications.

To use the option, sellers simply check a box when posting their listing. Meanwhile, those wishing to buy goods or services with cryptocurrency just filter their search results by using the option cryptocurrency ok down the right-hand side of the screen.

Interestingly, Craigslist doesnt force users to specify which cryptocurrency they wish to use for purchases. It also doesnt exclusively target Bitcoin users unlike most adopters of digital currency. This is because Craigslist do not deal with any payments themselves and therefore it makes little difference to them if you swap an Ether for an X Box, a NEO for a pair of sneakers, or even an assortment of red magic beans for some yellow ones. As such, its up to the seller to decide which of the myriad digital currencies available that theyre happy to accept.

This means that those wishing to buy or sell using cryptocurrency will likely be unaffected by the issues that caused online video game vendor Steam to stop accepting Bitcoin transactions last week. According to a statement from the news section of Steams website, the company were forced to discontinue Bitcoin payments because of extreme daily volatility, as well as long transaction times.

Presumably, because Craigslist sellers set their own terms for payment, they can negotiate with the buyer to mitigate some of the problems Steam faced should they decide to take Bitcoin. If they elect to transact using a different cryptocurrency, there will likely be less delay in receiving funds, and as such, the volatility will be less relevant than it was for the likes of Stream.

Despite it being just days since the option was launched, vendors on the classified ads site are already taking advantage of it. A browse of the adverts based in Brooklyn, New York, shows several sellers willing to accept some form of crypto for payment for their listings. Meanwhile, UK users are somewhat more limited with crypto listings. However, a reasonably priced games console and TV combination were amongst the items that could be swapped for some undisclosed cryptocurrency.

Some have suggested that using cryptocurrency to pay a complete stranger off the internet for something could prove safer th...

Investors are Selling Gold to Invest in Bitcoin, Key to Multi Trillion Dollar Market Cap "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

According to ACG Analytics US macro strategy head Larry McDonald, investors have begun to sell gold to invest in bitcoin through the newly launched bitcoin futures exchange of the Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE).

Bitcoin is Penetrating into the Gold Market

Since September, the value of gold miners ETF (GDX), the largest gold exchange-traded fund (ETF) in the market, has fallen by nearly 15 percent. In the past, McDonald noted that the value of gold ETFs were correlated to the price trend of bond yields. But, this week, McDonald explained that the decline in the price of gold ETFs was triggered by the rapid increase in demand for bitcoin.

On CNBCs Power Lunch, McDonald explained, Over the last two years, every time rates have come down, and this week rates have moved lower, you had gold go up. Almost every time, there has been an 82 percent correlation between gold and bonds. This week, for the first time, that correlation broke down, and I do think it has something to do with bitcoin.

Earlier this month, JPMorgan global markets strategist Nikolaos Panigirtzoglou stated that the listing of bitcoin futures by CBOE and CME, two of the worlds largest options exchanges in the global finance market, will provide the cryptocurrency with sufficient liquidity and robust infrastructure to become a major asset class.

Given bitcoins decentralized nature, transportability, fixed supply, and divisibility, Panigirtzoglou emphasized that in the long-term, bitcoin will be able to compete with traditional stores of value such as gold.

McDonald offered a similar viewpoint as Panigirtzoglou, as he stated that bitcoin and cryptocurrencies in the market are already eating into the multi trillion dollar gold market. He said:

If you add up all the cryptocurrencies and the liquid gold thats in the market right now, the cryptocurrencies in market cap are now 23 percent of the liquid tradeable gold. Thats up from 2 or 3 percent a year ago, so cryptocurrencies are definitely eating into the gold play. 

Currently, the price of bitcoin is $16,600, with a market cap of over $279 billion. The market valuation of bitcoin accounts for less than 5 percent of that of the global gold market. But, according to McDonald, bitcoin will l...

DASH and Litecoin Analysis December 12, 2017 "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

DASH/USD

DASH continues to be very choppy, forming a bit of a W pattern over the weekend. Because of this, I believe that we are eventually going to break out to the upside but a move above the $800 level is necessary for momentum to build and send it much higher. In the meantime, short-term pullbacks might be opportunities to build a position, with the $600 level offering a floor.

 

LTC/USD

Litecoin took off on Monday, breaking above the $180 level, and looks likely to reach towards $200 next. However, we are getting a bit overextended, and the volume isnt necessarily that impressive. Because of this, I would wait for pullbacks to take advantage of bullish pressure, and would be very interested in buying Litecoin near the $160 handle. I believe $200 will cause a certain amount of resistance.

Thanks for watching, Ill be back tomorrow.

Ethereum Analysis December 12, 2017 "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

ETH/USD

Ethereum has been choppy over the last several days, as the weekend was noisy. Most of the interest around the world seems to be focused on Bitcoin and the reaction of the Chicagos future markets, so Ethereum has creeped to the back burner. However, it looks as if we are making a serious run towards the $500 level, so on a break above there I believe that the market has much higher to go, probably targeting $580.

 

ETH/BTC

Ethereum was noisy over the weekend against Bitcoin as well, but seems to be trying to turn to the upside as I record. However, I look at the 0.035 level as significant resistance, and therefore Im looking for signs of exhaustion to start selling again, as Bitcoin has certainly captured the imagination of the general public. I am not interest in buying this market yet, I would need to see a significant base built.

Bitcoin Analysis December 12, 2017 "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

BTC/USD

 

Bitcoin has been very volatile over the weekend, reaching as low as $13,000. However, after futures trading opened a, it became apparent that buyers were jumping into the Chicago exchange. Because of this, I believe there has been a bit of a knock on effect in the underlying asset. At this point, a break above the $17,000 level suggests that we are going much higher. Otherwise, expect pullbacks to eventually find support.

BTC/JPY

Bitcoin fell rather significantly against the Japanese yen over the weekend, but found enough support at the 1.5 million level to turn around and rally back towards the 2 million level. A break above that 2 million level suggests that we are going to continue to go much higher. One thing you can count on, that the volatility is only going to get worse from here.

Thanks for watching, Ill see you again tomorrow.

Bitcoin Futures Begin Trading Let The Madness Commence! "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

bitcoin-feds

One of the things that I love about Bitcoin is that the fun never seems to end. On Sunday, Bitcoin futures began trading on the Chicago Board Options Exchange for the first time ever, and within minutes the CBOEs website crashed. What a perfect metaphor. Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies are completely and utterly disrupting the global financial system, and the financial establishment is still groping for a cohesive response to this growing phenomenon.

For a long time the financial establishment seemed to think that if they just kept publicly trashing Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies that they would eventually just go away. In fact, earlier today I came across a story that talked about how Deutsche Bank is warning of a Bitcoin crash in 2018. But what they dont realize is that we have reached a tipping point, and the world will never go back to the way it was before.

And even though other global financial institutions are dragging their feet, an enormous threshold was crossed when Bitcoin futures were launched on the Chicago Board Options Exchange just a few hours ago

On Sunday, the Cboe will finally launch its long-awaited bitcoin futures contract; the CME Group will launch its futures contract later this month.

This will surely add a new element to bitcoin, shifting it from a buy-side-only trade to introducing the ability to go long or short. This should bring new, larger and institutional participants into the market.

This move will also make it more tempting for large institutions to try to manipulate the price of Bitcoin, and that is always a dangerous thing.

But overall this is being hailed as a great thing for Bitcoin, and many believe that the wild ride that Bitcoin has been on in recent weeks has been because of this upcoming futures launch. The following comes from...

After Successfully Burning More Than 60 Million XVIA Tokens, VIABET Proceeds with The First Round of its Public Token Sale "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

VIABET The blockchain-powered platform which acts as the technological launching pad that allows regular players as well as gaming companies to create and launch their own casino games. Has reported that it has successfully completed its first ever token burn on December 10th as part of the teams long-term plan to raise the value of XVIA tokens.

The VIA (XVIA) Token Burn Strategy

Historically when a company burns (destroys) or locks a number of tokens it causes the price to increase. This is due to the law of supply and demand. Since there are fewer tokens available for trade the tokens that are available for trade become more valuable. VIA (XVIA) tokens are needed to use the VIABET platform. XVIA is a cryptocurrency based on the Ethereum technology that allows creating a fair, autonomous cloud-based betting environment for all users.

The XVIA Token Supply Has Been Reduced by 90%

VIABET will be having two (if necessary) token burn events, each at major milestones which will allow to raise the value of XVIA at key points:

BURN 1: The first official token burn has already been successfully completed on December 10th by reducing the overall token supply from 70 million (70,000,000) to 7 million (7,000,000), a 90% decrease.

BURN 2 (if necessary): The second burn will happen in the event that not all 4.4 million tokens are sold and distributed during the Public ICO. It will take place after listing on the first official trading exchange, EtherDelta (Planned for as early as December 12th if all 4.4 million tokens are distributed during that time, otherwise the listing date is scheduled for January 7th, 2018)

With each burn, VIABET aims to achieve a high level of stability and steady overall price increase.

Public ICO to Begin December 11th

 The VIABET ICO is set to begin December 11th, 2017 (6:00 PM UTC). However, only 4.4 million XVIA Tokens will be sold during the Public ICO. As the ICO is capped at only 3700 ETH, it is predicted to sell out and close its doors to new investors long before its January 7th deadline is hit. In addition, VIABET has early bird discounts in place to incentivize investor participation, a 20% bonus for early investors is up for grabs.

The project has already met its minimum (soft cap), which was $100,000. Thus, even if it does not hit 100% of its goal, it is still moving forward with its development ro...

Coins.ph Contemplates Rolling out SegWit Support and Enabling Bitcoin Cash Transactions "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

All Bitcoin service providers struggle with the worlds leading cryptocurrency right now. More specifically, network congestion and high fees make Bitcoin virtually unusable. Coins.ph plans to address is this issue with a  two-pronged approach. First of all, they will [finally] enable SegWit-based transactions. Secondly, they may integrate Bitcoin Cash very soon. Both options are equally viable in this regard, yet it remains to be seen which option will win out.

It is evident any company dealing with Bitcoin needs to rethink its strategy. The high network fees make it an unfavorable cryptocurrency to use. There are multiple ways to address these problems, although only a few viable options remain. First of all, focusing on implementing SegWit would be a good start. Coins.ph wants to give this option a try in the near future. Right now, they are dealing with too many overhead costs to keep the service running in its current form.

Coins.ph Continues to Grow and Evolve

Another option contemplated by the company is supporting Bitcoin Cash. That in itself is a rather surprising decision, but it also makes a lot of sense. Unlike BTC, BCH has lower fees and a more reliable network. It forces companies to closely ponder how they want to evolve their business. Until Bitcoins scaling issues are sorted, we will see more of these stores, unfortunately. Customers of the company have been complaining about the high fees and network delays for some time now.

For the time being, the Bitcoin mempool is clearing out pretty quickly. More specifically, the number of unconfirmed transactions is dropping. It was over 220,000 late last week. Right now, we are back in the five-digit range. Although there is still plenty of work to be done, the situation is slowly improving. Whether or not the high fees will subside, remains to be seen, though. For now, it is still a pretty problematic scenario.

Additionally, Coins.ph had some good news to report as well. More specifically, the company obtained a license as an electronic money issuer. This means the company can legally accept and hold customer funds in The Philippines. A very interesting de...

Bitcoin Price Watch; Hedging the Dips "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

So thats another weekend gone and all of a sudden a fresh week of trading is underway in the bitcoin price. Its been a pretty wild ride over the last few weeks and especially as relates to the last five or six days, with price soaring to fresh all-time highs before correcting pretty substantially towards current levels in and around the $15,000 mark.

Nobody can really say with any certainty whats going to happen from here but, if our strategy is to be trusted, it doesnt really matter all that much. So long as price eventually resumes its longer-term overarching upside momentum then we can pretty happily trade any intraday volatility with our breakout strategy and hedge against any downside runs on the longer-term charts.

So, with that said, lets get some levels in place that we can use to draw a profit from the market today. As ever, take a quick look at the chart below before we get started so as to pick up an idea where things stand and where we are looking to jump in and out of the markets according to the rules of our strategy.

As the chart shows, the range we are looking at for the session today comes in as defined by support to the downside at 16400 and resistance to the upside at 16569. We are going to stick with our standard breakout approach for the time being, so if we see price break above resistance, we will enter longer towards an immediate upside target of 16620. A stop loss on the position somewhere in the region of 16540 will ensure we are taken out of the trade in the event that things turn against us.

Looking the other way, if we see price close below support, we will enter short towards a downside target of 16320.

Lets see what happens.

Looming Supply Reduction Leads to A New Investment Boom in ETC "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Despite CryptoKitties, Ethereums first mainstream use-case, and the recent spotlight of Bitcoins price hike, ETC stealthily booms as a low-profile dark horse. As the hard fork took place on 20th July 2017, the currency policies of ETH and ETC that share the twin code went separate ways. Without a limit, the supply of ETH would continue to grow while the total supply of ETC was stated not to exceed 230 million, a policy that followed the tradition of Austrian economic theory and took a page out of bitcoins playbook.

Less Tokens, Price U-turns

The release of the reduction policy was good news for ETC market which led a token price soar. After the fork, the price of ETC hit a new high of $34, up from the range between $9 and $12. Boosted by this news, ETC price turned out to be bullish within a short time, which was a breakthrough compared with the original issue price and also marked a price return. Within this same time frame, the price of ETH only rallied by 60%.

ETC Supply Reduction Plan

ETC Global Summit took place in Hong Kong on the 13th November, resulted a reaffirmation of the ETC Digital Asset Currency Policy and Economic Model. Subject to ECIP-1017, ETC production would be reduced by 20%. A percentage of output cut per 5 million blocks would remain regular to make ETC reduction normal until total token supply hit between 210 and 220 million. Given this supply control, ETC inflation would be effectively checked.

Less Supply, Pricier ETC

So far, more ETH are issued while less ETC can be expected in the market. As ancient Chinese said , Less is dearer, the total supply of digital asset will lead to the increase in value. As the ETC demand and usage increases, so does the price and appeal. For this, Bitcoin can be seen as the best example. ETH defeated ETC in price war with a preceding advantage. In the long run, ETHs excess supply from its unlimited supply policy will eventually cool down the investment fever, and will be edged out by ETHs preemptive strength, as the market slowly recognises ETCs true value. Price wise, Barry Silbert, a digital currency mogul, once posted a tweet, implying that ETC would be pricier than ETH with signs showing that the trend is merely a matter of time.

A Safer ETC Network

ETC network is safer than ETHs as ETC miners use POW rather than POS. Consensus is the core of blockchain. The proof-of-work-based blockchain has been proven in the market as having the best mechanism that supports 8 of the top 10 cryptographic coins by market cap. POW allows mining at miners discretion whilst POS leaves late miners finding nowhere to proceed. The POW-based ETC will attract more miners, make nodes connected to any dynamic networks fruitful, and the network safer.

Litecoin still leading as it climbs the crypto table "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

This weekend has seen some pretty wild price swings, especially from big daddy Bitcoin which fell by 26% from Fridays high of $18,300. As excitement and interest mounted leading up to the launch of CBOEs futures contracts on Sunday BTC bounced from support at $13,000 yesterday morning to climb back up to around $16,500 where it is trading at the time of writing.

When Bitcoin starts going vertical altcoins usually suffer however there is one coin that has rode out the waves and stayed on top, keeping its recent gains of over 50% in a week and maintaining support levels. Litecoin saw an epic jump from around $100 to over $150 on Friday and into trading on Saturday.  Usually when this happens there is a market correction and support is broken sending the price back down to normal levels.

Litecoin did fall back to $130 on December 10 but has since risen back to its all-time high of $160 where it is currently trading. With all the attention on Bitcoin, its slower transaction speeds and higher fees are emphasized, and Litecoin looks like a better alternative. This is highlighted even further by its price and the fact that it has been extremely stable over the past six months or so when all other altcoins have been swinging all over the charts.

Litecoin is currently the sixth largest crypto currency by market capacity, which at the time of writing is $8.3 billion. Just above it in fifth place is Ripple which has shown very little movement in either direction for the past six months where it has traded between $0.16 and $0.26. XRP has a market capacity of $9.4 billion according to Coinmarketcap.com, total supply is almost 100 billion with around 38.7 billion already in circulation.

Below Litecoin in seventh place on the market cap table is Dash which is at $5.6 billion. Dash, with a maximum supply of 18.9 million and 7.7 million already circulating has traded in a sideways channel for the past week between $660 and $780.

Comparing these to Litecoins total supply of 84 million with a circulating supply of 54.2 million it is beginning to look like a far better bet at a far better price. With recent rises in price and interest for what is often called the silver to Bitcoins gold, this one could go a lot further and we could be seeing Charlie Lees Litecoin reach $200 before the end of the week.

Massive Gains Force Bitcoin Futures Trading to be Halted Twice in Quick Succession "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

With the CBOE Bitcoin futures going live, no one is surprised the demand is pretty massive. During the first few hours, things have progressed rather nicely.  At the same time, the massive gains triggered two warnings already. At the 10% and 20% gain level, the CFE halted trading of these Bitcoin futures. In every case, the trading resumes pretty quickly. All of this shows the demand for Bitcoin will not diminish anytime soon.

The Bitcoin futures trading is a big development for the worlds leading cryptocurrency. Institutional investors can now speculate on the future BTC price. As one would expect, the demand for such a speculative vehicle is rather steep. In fact, it is so steep the CFE had to halt trading of CBOE futures twice already. These halted trades are triggered automatically whenever major gains occur. In this case, it happened at a 10% and 20% gain compared to the original price.

Bitcoin Futures Make Their Mark

This goes to show there is a genuine bullish sentiment regarding the Bitcoin price. More specifically, the actual BTC price has also appreciated nicely over time. While the futures are still valued higher than the BTC price itself, it does paint an interesting future. It is very likely we will see the Bitcoin futures halted again whenever new major gains or massive losses are recorded. Now is the time to speculate on the worlds leading cryptocurrency.

It is uncanny how much demand there is for the products offered by CBOE. Their website crashed earlier this morning as well, which isnt entirely unexpected. Centralized infrastructure has never been able to keep up with demand for Bitcoin whatsoever. Thankfully, those issues have been resolved rather quickly. It will be interesting to see how this Bitcoin futures market evolves in the next few days.

Moreover, the CME Bitcoin futures will go live in a week from today. With more competition on the market, things will get pretty crazy for Bitcoin during the end of the year. The global demand for Bitcoi...

4News Blockchain Based Ecosystem to Revolutionize Waste to Energy Utility Sector "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

4New, worlds first tangible and eco-friendly waste to energy blockchain solution is pushing the energy manufacturers to adopt blockchain technology and revolutionize the Utility Sector, while bringing a positive disruption in the industry. 4New is the first platform to convert waste, collected from households into energy and then sell it back to them, national grids and aggregators. Though the idea of converting waste into energy is not a new one, yet it is for the first time that any initiative has integrated the whole tangible supply chain from waste collection to energy sale, onto blockchain network.

The Blockchain Based Ecosystem for Waste to Energy Conversion

It cannot be denied that blockchain technology is a powerful platform for growth of global economy. The technology is here to stay and even getting more popularity with time across the globe due to its trustless nature and transparency.

4New has launched its utility coin, 4New Coin in its on-going ICO to be ended by December 15, 2017. The 4New Coin works as a Coin as a Service to all stakeholders, consumers, industry peers, associates and early adopters. The open source, decentralized blockchain based platform encourages value-based exchange between B2B, B2C and C2C, spotted in waste and energy markets.

4New Coins are utility tokens developed on Smart Contracts that form a binding connection between executing parties, thus, eliminating middlemen or intermediaries and provide an incentive to every exchange on the platform. The ledger provides an auditable and immutable record of all buying and selling transactions of energy and waste, empowering 4New Coin to be a global medium of transaction amongst buyers and companions for all waste and energy administrations .

Smart contract over blockchain platform makes direct payment possible, from consumer to producer, eliminating the need of middleman in between. The smart contract immediately pays for the products or services supplied just after the delivery. This is a big relief for the producers as mistrust and lack of transparency have been the biggest obstacle to demand and supply. It will encourage the energy manufacturers to integrate utilities on blockchain, and, also users to pay for these utilities through cryptocurrencies. Through smart contract based transactions, users will also get hope, orderliness and peace of mind to cater their energy needs effectively. This practice will eventually result in widespread adoption of cryptocurrency worldwide.

Moreover, 4New blockchain platform is to be integrated with 4New Smart Meter, which will provide feedback to the manufacturers after tracking and monitoring consumers energy consumption, to help them provide stabilized energy supply to their consumers.

This past week, we saw a downside reaction in bitcoin gold price below the $200 support against the US Dollar. The price moved down and traded as low as $190 where buyers appeared. They were successful in defending more losses in BTG and as a result, the price moved back above $200. The upside move was such that the price was able to break the $230 resistance and the 100 hourly simple moving average. This means that the price moved back in the bullish zone with a close above $210-230.

A high was formed at $277.67 from where the price started a downside correction. It moved below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $190 low to $277 high. However, the downside move is finding support around $250 level. The most important support is near $230 and the 100 hourly simple moving average. The mentioned level was a resistance earlier and now it could stop declines below $230. The same level is also the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $190 low to $277 high.

Chicago Exchange crashed by Bitcoin "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

The long awaited launch of Chicago Board Options Exchange Bitcoin futures contracts went off with a bang yesterday as the website was knocked offline by a surge in traffic. The first contracts were offered at 18.00 EST on Sunday and an unprecedented demand overwhelmed the exchange.

CBOE Tweeted a status update which said Due to heavy traffic on our website, visitors to cboe.com may find that it is performing slower than usual and may at times be temporarily unavailable. All trading systems are operating normally.

The site outage coincided with a surge in Bitcoin price at the time of launch. According to CoinDesks Bitcoin Price Index (BPI) it jumped from $14,509 at 22:59 UTC to $15,732 seven minutes later, 8.4% in a few minutes. Once the initial rush had subsided the CBOE website came back online and contracts started to sell. The exchange has listed some details on its Bitcoin futures offerings here.

Frustrated customers vented on social media, one Tweeting Quite a pathetic launch of future on CBOE, it seems that the website crashed. and another added: CBOE site down eight minutes after Bitcoin launch. It is often the case that organizations do not anticipate the level of traffic to their servers and do not make provisions for additional bandwidth. In recent weeks major exchanges such as Coinbase have gone offline due to high levels of traffic.

According to the CBOE website the XBT/F8 contract which expires next month is the most popular one with over 2540 already sold. The price determination is also explained on their website: The single price settlement process gives participants the option of using XBT futures to hedge their exposure in underlying bitcoin or gain exposure to traded bitcoin prices without holding bitcoin.

The first major regulated US exchange is now running Bitcoin futures and more will follow with CME Group launching their own contracts on December 18. Others are likely to develop their own offerings if these are successful, and looking at the initial reaction they will be. Company executives are hoping the CBOE will be able to launch other products centered around crypto currencies which could include exchange traded funds.

There has been a lot of critical sentiment over Bitcoin, mostly from Wall Street bankers who see it as a threat to their business model which largely revolves around controlling other peoples finances. Investors seem unperturbed at the moment the Bitcoin behemoth has bounced back from its 25% weekend slump to trade back towards the $16,500 level.

Ripple Price Technical Analysis XRP/USD Approaching Short-term Break "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Key Highlights

  • Ripple price is struggling to break the $0.2400 resistance is approaching a short-term break against the US Dollar.
  • There is a contracting triangle forming with support at $0.2300 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair (data source from Kraken).
  • The pair might make an upside move above $0.2400 as long as it is above the 100 hourly simple moving average.

Ripple price remains well supported against the US Dollar and Bitcoin. XRP/USD might soon clear the $0.2400 resistance for more gains.

Ripple Price Trend

There was no major move in Ripple price either above $0.2400 or below $0.2200 during the weekend against the US Dollar. However, the price remained well supported above the $0.2200 level. It recently traded close to the $0.2500 level from where a correction was initiated. It moved below the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $0.2050 low to $0.2489 high.

The downside move was protected by the $0.2200 support. Moreover, the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $0.2050 low to $0.2489 high also prevented declines. At the moment, the price is now above the $0.2300 support and the 100 hourly simple moving average. These are positive signs and it seems like there is a contracting triangle forming with support at $0.2300 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair. The pair is slowly approaching towards the next break either above $0.2400 or below $0.2300.

Ripple Price Technical Analysis XRP USD

As long as the pair is above $0.2300 and the 100 hourly SMA, there are chances of an upside break. On the flip side, a downside break below $0.2300 would call for a test of the $0.2050 low.

Looking at the technical indicators:

Hourly MACD The MACD for XRP/USD is now moving nicely in the bullish zone.

Hourly RSI (Relative Strength Index) The RSI for XRP/USD is currently well above the 50 level and is moving higher.

The best part was a close above $430 and the 100 hourly simple moving average.

Moreover, the price recently broke a short-term bearish trend line at $440 on the hourly chart of ETH/USD. At the moment, the pair is trading near the 38.2% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $497.71 high to $421.90 low.

Bitcoin Cash Price Technical Analysis Can BCH/USD Recover Further? "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Key Points

  • Bitcoin cash price is recovering from the $1205 low against the US Dollar, but it is facing many resistances.
  • There is a crucial bearish trend line forming with resistance at $1410 on the hourly chart of BCH/USD (data feed from Kraken).
  • The price might struggle to move above the $1400-1410 resistance area in the near term.

Bitcoin cash price is recovering from $1200 against the US Dollar. BCH/USD has to move above the $1400 resistance zone to recover further.

Bitcoin Cash Price Resistance

There were a couple of downsides swing moves in bitcoin cash price this past week towards $1200 against the US Dollar. The main reason was BTC/USDs sharp rise above $17,000. BCH declined and tested the $1200 support area. However, buyers were able to protect further declines and pushed the price back above $1250. The price also traded above the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $1500 high to $1205 low.

At the moment, the price is trading above the $1350 pivot and the 100 hourly simple moving average. It seems like the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $1500 high to $1205 low at $1385 is acting as a resistance and preventing gains. Above $1385, there is a crucial bearish trend line forming with resistance at $1410 on the hourly chart of BCH/USD. Therefore, it seems like the $1400 resistance zone is very important and a break above it wont be easy.

Bitcoin Cash Price Technical Analysis BCH USD

Moreover, the $1440 level is also a major resistance above the mentioned $1400. On the downside, the $1350 level is an initial support followed by $1320. The most important support on the downside remains at $1200.

Looking at the technical indicators:

Hourly MACD The MACD for BCH/USD is moving nicely in the bullish zone.

Hourly RSI (Relative Strength Index) The RSI for BCH/USD is now well above the 50 level.

Major Support Level $1320

LTC BULLS DRIVING PRICES HIGHER TECHNICAL ANALYSIS December 11, 2017 "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

LTC bulls are marauding and as it is, the first take profit level at $155 no longer holds. Concurrently, we are seeing some price recovery in NEM Monero and DASH as they try to move higher with a stochastic buy signal.

Of the five alt coins under our consideration, it is IOTA whose volatility remains muted but should there be a close above the wedge where it is moving in, bullish trend might resume.

Lets look at the charts:

NEM PRICES STABLE AND MOVING HIGHER

Interesting events happened towards the end of last week, the whipsaws after what is appearing to be a perfectly executed insider trading to me. Well, it sunk and the next day prices were testing the moon.

At current prices, NEM prices are trading low and bouncing off the 20 period MA with a stochastic buy signal in place.

Previous resistance now support is also acting as a reliable prop for bulls and the way it is, NEM bulls might continue moving up towards $0.676 resistance line.

AFTER A TRIPLE BOTTOMS, DASH EDGE HIGHER

alt coin DASH 4HR chart technical analysis DASHUSD 4HR Chart for December 11, 2017

DASH prices are bullish. With every higher high it makes, the ultimate bull target of $820 and $1050 get closer.

At the moment, DASH is pushing higher after bouncing from the triple bottoms with a stochastic buy signal in place. We also have the minor resistance trend line connecting December 3 and 9 highs as our next resistance line.

Any close above that and the 20 period MA means bull pressure is on.

A wild ride ahead for Bitcoin "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

This weekend has been a tumultuous one in crypto-land. With Bitcoin bouncing off of an all-time high of just over $18,250, and altcoins surging on Saturday, a different picture was being painted on Sunday. The bears were out in force and BTC lost over $5,000 in just over 48 hours. Volatile does not even come close to describing the current market as most coins are showing red negative numbers yesterday.

The big slump may be connected to the launch of the Chicago Board Options Exchange futures contracts on Sunday. This will effectively allow traders to short Bitcoin and it looks like the digital avalanche has already started. Options Clearing Corp has set an initial margin requirement of 44% of the daily settlement price. This is huge compared to traditional commodities such as oil or gold. The rate has been increased from CBOEs original 33% margin requirement as a result of the massive price swings Bitcoin has had this past week.

It is currently trading around $16,500 which has recovered from a 25% drop on its peak late Friday/early Saturday. Massive swings of over 20% in both directions in such a short time are cause for concern for institutional traders and investors. The margin requirement for futures trading is the amount investors need to put aside as collateral so that other traders know that losses can be covered. One of the managing partners at Benchmark Investments stated that One of the reasons why the futures margin requirements are so high is because of the limited size of the overall bitcoin market. Theres a lack of depth and breadth.

There is great concern that crypto currency trading risks have not been properly evaluated. This week the Futures Industry Association circulated a letter to regulators highlighting these concerns from the trade group of banks and brokers. Some of Wall Streets biggest banks including Bank of America, JP Morgan Chase, Morgan Stanley, and Citigroup are still hesitant and will be holding back from offering clearing for Bitcoin futures contracts until the digital dust settles.

Traders and investors are keen to get in on the action but are also hesitant for fear of going against managements public stance on digital currencies. Whether the banking bigwigs fully embrace the technology or publically decry it as many have been doing recently they are all paying full attention to it now.

The charts look like roller-coasters and the wild ride isnt over yet for Bitcoin and its brethren.

Bitcoin Price Technical Analysis for 12/11/2017 Updated Extension Levels "IndyWatch Feed Crypto"

Bitcoin Price Key Highlights

  • Bitcoin price has been able to make a correction from its stellar rally over the past week.
  • Price pulled back to the $13,000 area then bounced off the support level to signal that its ready to resume the climb.
  • Bitcoin is now testing the 50% extension level and the next upside targets are marked.

Bitcoin price has completed its correction from the latest rally and is resuming the climb to the swing high.

Technical Indicators Signals

The 100 SMA is still above the longer-term 200 SMA to confirm that the path of least resistance is to the upside. This suggests that the rally is more likely to carry on than to reverse. Also, the gap between the moving averages is widening to reflect stronger bullish momentum.

Stochastic is also on the move up to show that buyers are in control of bitcoin price action. RSI has more room to climb, so price could follow suit. However, stochastic is already approaching overbought levels to signal exhaustion among bulls.

Market Factors

The US dollar strengthened on Friday when the non-farm payrolls report printed  a higher than expected result. This could up the odds of aggressive tightening in 2018, although the upcoming FOMC decision this week could confirm or negate that.

Updated Fed economic forecasts are due along with this weeks statement, and there will a press conference to follow the announcement. Of course this would be one of Yellens last pressers, so traders might be more curious to find out what incoming head Powell thinks.

CBOE has launched its bitcoin futures product but the website has crashed as activity jumped, leading many to worry that systems are overloaded and could hamper trading activity.

Due to heavy traffic on our website, visitors to http://www.cboe.com may find that it is performing slower than usual and may at times be temporarily unavailable, the exchange said in a statement. All trading systems are operating normally.

Traders are now turning their attention to the launch of CME bitcoin futures next.

One of the things that I love about Bitcoin is that the fun never seems to end.  On Sunday, Bitcoin futures began trading on the Chicago Board Options Exchange for the first time ever, and within minutes the CBOEs website crashed.  What a perfect metaphor.  Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies are completely and utterly disrupting the global financial system, and the financial establishment is still groping for a cohesive response to this growing phenomenon.
