Bitcoin [BTC] Falls Below $8300 – FOMO Comes to End as Analysts Extend Bearish Target

Bitcoin [BTC] nearly touched $9100 on 31st May 2019 before after which it went through a swift fall to a low near $8000. Hence, while Bitcoin [BTC] did break-out of the ascending triangle it has fallen back to test the breakout level.

BTC/USD 4-Hour Chart on Bitstamp (TradingView)

The price of Bitcoin [BTC] at 3: 15 hours UTC on 31st May 2019 is $8264. It is trading 4.37% lower on a daily scale. The total market capitalization of Bitcoin fell below $150 billion.

There was evident FOMO in the market above $8700, with the price breaking new highs almost every week in the past month. Peter L. Brandt expressed the sentiments in a tweet.

“Was today’s correction enough to shake the monkeys (FOMO buyers) from the trees?”

He also suggested that there might be more downside to it, with targets given at $7881 and $7467. Earlier, he had almost correctly predicted the swing trade buy on Bitcoin, which could turn extremely bearish.

A pullback in Bitcoin [BTC] prices was due for a long time. Nevertheless, if the increased demand remains intact, the orders will be filled by people looking to buy the dip. B.Biddles who is bullish in Bitcoin [BTC] tweeted in a small hint,

“So the gap fill crowd is bullish now right?”

While the parabolic rise looks like has come to an end, a correction in price only natural of any asset. However, there are traders like Tone Vays who were expecting about 30% pullback from $8700; a fall to around $6090. Moreover, according to Vinny Lingham, a drop below $6200 would revive the bearish movement experienced during the beginning of the year.

On a further bearish note, a rising wedge pattern has been recognized in the daily chart on Bitcoin [BTC] might break down soon. Furthermore, the MACD is bullish on a weekly chart, but bearish in on a daily and 4-hour chart.

Crypto Influencer Says Bitcoin Poised for 244 Surge BTC Ripple and XRP Ethereum Litecoin Tron Stellar EOS Cardano Forecasts

Crypto Influencer Says Bitcoin Poised for 244% Surge – BTC, Ripple and XRP, Ethereum, Litecoin, Tron, Stellar, EOS, Cardano Forecasts

Crypto Influencer Says Bitcoin Poised for 244% Surge – BTC, Ripple and XRP, Ethereum, Litecoin, Tron, Stellar, EOS, Cardano Forecasts

The co-founder and managing partner at Kenetic Capital, a blockchain investment firm, says the increasing presence of institutions in the world of cryptocurrency is providing a strong backbone for the future of the emerging industry.

Jehan Chu told Bloomberg he believes Bitcoin will rise 244% to $30,000, as investors look for alternative types of technology investments.

“What people are really seeing now is that cryptocurrency is not going away. And you don’t have to take my word for it. It’s Facebook, it’s Jamie Dimon, it’s Rakuten, it’s Fidelity – all who are getting in the space either in building infrastructure or providing services. So that’s first. It’s going to drive mindshare and drive adoption. Second, I think what we’re seeing is a counter-cyclical argument. With the recent disappointments of Uber and Lift IPO-ing in the market, people are looking for a different type of tech story, and one that’s perhaps accessible to all. And finally, the Bitcoin halving is coming. And traditionally that’s pushed the price in double-digit percentages. So a combination of these three factors, I think, will really see us getting from where we are now to $30,000.”

Although Bitcoin is top dog, Chu says the blockchain and crypto movement at large is about much more than BTC.

“Bitcoin is the biggest brand. It’s the massive elephant in the room and it definitely has a center of gravity that many other cryptocurrencies and coins benefit from. It’s going to pull up the rest of the market. But in truth, many of the different applications that back the cryptocurrencies in their own right are developing on their own story and developing utility. So these are the other altcoins that have their own large market caps, like Ether, which is coming up to its own on-year highs.”

Chu says the potential of Ethereum, along with Ripple and XRP, are not to be underestimated.

“From a utility standpoint, we’re seeing Ethereum as the lead. The rate of adoption and the rate of development that the Ethereum team, providing a decentralized global computer, is just astounding. People keep saying Ethereum is going away, but it’s not going away. It’s still one of the largest coins in the world with the largest developer audience. And I think Vitalik Buterin, the 24-year-old founder of Ethereum being on stage with Sache Nadala at the recent Microsoft conference really shows not just how much traction there is on the ground, but also with the major institutions who are determining the future of technology. So I think Ethereum is definitely a bullish call. I’m also interested to see what Ripple does. I think Ripple’s made great headway in providing different types of payment currencies to many of the banks and getting key partnerships around the world.”

When it comes to whether the SEC will approve a Bitcoin ETF, Chu says it would be great, but not central to the success of the industry.

“Commissioner Peirce has said it is the time for an ETF, but there are still questions which are outstanding. And that’s fair. To be honest, I’m not waiting with bated breath for an ETF to be listed anytime soon. If it does, great. But to be honest, we’re going to be getting major traction and major volume increase from people like Fidelity who’s offering institutional custody and trading, to eTrade to Ameritrade to Rakuten. Samsung is now putting out a cryptocurrency wallet and all these factors are going to drive adoption regardless of whether an ETF comes tomorrow or in 10 years.”

Right now, Bitcoin is down 0.30% at $8,632 according to COIN360. Ethereum is up 1.12% at $271.53, and XRP is up 0.91% at $0.4437.

Bitcoin Breaking Past 9000 And 11700 Would Confirm Bull Rally

Bitcoin Breaking Past $9,000 And $11,700 Would Confirm Bull Rally

Bitcoin Breaking Past $9,000 And $11,700 Would Confirm Bull Rally

Bitcoin Not Decidedly Bullish Yet

The Bitcoin (BTC) price action on the weekend shocked investors across the board. Some, however, aren’t sure that BTC is in the clear just yet, choosing to be skeptical instead of adopting the “Fear of Missing Out” that many cryptocurrency investors have surging through their veins. What will convince these cynics that this market is in a solid uptrend, and is ready to establish new all-time highs?

According to HornHairs, a cryptocurrency trader, a key price point that BTC needs to surmount in the near-term is $9,000. Earlier this week, we saw the digital asset run to just short of that level, flirting with $8,970. HornHairs opines that $9,000 is key, as that was the equilibrium of Bitcoin’s range from late-2017 to late-2018, suggesting that it will act as resistance.

Once Bitcoin closes above that level on the daily and weekly chart, just as BTC did with the $8,400 level, the analyst believes that a move to $11,800 has a “high probability of breaking out.” And according to analyst Teddy Cleps, a break and close above $11,700, in his eyes, would confirm the bull market, as Bitcoin’s collapse below this level is “what made the bear market official.” As seen below, BTC touched that level three times in early-2018, accentuating that it is a level of importance.

Can This Happen?

Sure, the technicals show that Bitcoin needs to surmount the aforementioned price levels to enter a full-fledged rally. But, are the technicals and fundamentals there to back such a move? Let’s take a look.

In a recent poll, analyst Josh Rager asked his followers where Bitcoin could head next. Surprisingly, 67% of 3,000-odd respondents picked the option that read “pushes up to at least $9,600”, while the remaining chose “breakdown to at least $6,400.” This would suggest that the sentiment of most cryptocurrency investors is clearly bullish.

Fundamentally, BTC and its respective market still look strong. In fact, Binance, one of the largest digital asset exchanges, purportedly — according to CEO Changpeng Zhao — saw a system traffic all-time high “by far” on Monday. Considering that the cryptocurrency industry is barely out of a “crypto winter”, and the market is still 70% down from its all-time highs, this fact is jaw-dropping.

More broadly, the underlying infrastructure of the industry is nothing like it was in previous cycles, even at the peak of 2017’s rally. In 2014, were Fidelity Investments, E*Trade, Microsoft, TD Ameritrade, Nasdaq, and their Wall Street and Silicon Valley brethren involved in cryptocurrency and related technologies? No.

Anthony Pompliano – More bullish on Bitcoin than ever

Anthony Pompliano – More bullish on Bitcoin than ever

  • Pompliano has always been a supporter of Bitcoin.

  • He feels that Bitcoin has the chance of a 20-50x increase in value in the coming five years.

Anthony “Pomp” Pompliano has shown his adherence towards the world’s most valuable cryptocurrency, Bitcoin. Pompliano has always been a supporter of Bitcoins and now has also been at the forefront of Bitcoin Evangelists. Pomp believes that there might be two strong reasons for the sudden surge of Bitcoins. Firstly, top exchanges like the CME and others are getting high trading volumes on Bitcoin. It indicates that institutional traders and retail investors are thoroughly convinced about Bitcoin.

Secondly, the 2020 block reward halving on the Bitcoin network is a major propeller of the Bitcoin rally. He has also mentioned the importance of halving in his tweet. He relates Bitcoin halving to the United States Treasury Department to cut the amount of dollar note printed into half. He believes that this may result in the rise of the dollar’s value. Pomp reckons that Bitcoin has the chance of a 20-50x increase in value and has also predicted that it may hit $275,000 in the coming five years.

Bitcoin BTC has Entered Re-Accumulation Phase’ Between 5800-9700

Bitcoin [BTC] has Entered ‘Re-Accumulation Phase' Between $5800-$9700

Bitcoin [BTC] has Entered ‘Re-Accumulation Phase’ Between $5800-$9700

Several market indicators and factors affect the price movements (bullish or bearish), in which traders and miners manage their positions accordingly. However, one thing which the miners have to account for perpetually is the mining rewards.

Since it is decreased by half every four years, the miners must decide on how to run their set-up profitably in the future. This accounts for the supply of the system. Moreover, inflation is Bitcoin [BTC] will also reduce considerably as the production decreases. Currently, the inflation on Bitcoin is above 3.5%. All of this, in turn, affect the price greatly.

Bitcoin Price Analysis: ‘Halving’ Timelines on a Logarithmic Scale

The reduction in mining rewards is a periodic process designed by default in Bitcoin [BTC]. These are facts and principals that miners and traders all have knowledge of, and the market sentiments are guided by similar reasons every four years. Tuur Demister, the Co-founder of Adamant Capital, has established an analogy between the price action and halving timelines.

This analogy is slightly different from the ‘bull and bear cycle‘ which is estimated on a linear price scale as opposed to this one. Furthermore, the analysis is performed on a logarithmic scale.

Tuur Demeester’s Price Analysis Based on Halving Sentiments (Source Tweet)

The next Bitcoin halving is a year away, scheduled at some time on 22nd May 2019. Hence, this period, according to him, marks the re-accumulation period as the price broke above resistance and support from the previous bull cycle at around $5800-$6000 levels.

BTC/USD Price Analysis from Halving Sentiments (TradingView)

According to his analysis, $5820-$5850 was the resistance and support level that markets the accumulation period with the bottom. It also marks the resistance to the beginning of the re-accumulation period. Furthermore, the re-accumulation can be expected to extend for another year below the $9650-$9700.

Bitcoin Falls Back from 8000 Levels

Bitcoin Falls Back from $8,000 Levels

Bitcoin Falls Back from $8,000 Levels

Bitcoin looks like it is struggling now to crack resistance at $8,000 and has fallen back sharply in the US session.

At the moment, BTC is back around $7,600 and we will be watching with interest today as to whether price can rebound. We have been seeing all the dips get bought recently, but should price break the $7,500 level, then there is a good chance we will test $7,000 where price could consolidate for some time, before trying its luck at higher prices.

$7,000 is actually pretty strong support here as we can see that price has bounced off that level a couple of times, most notably on the back of the flash crash last week.

While that level did fall for a moment, price quickly retraced and consolidated above that point.

For that reason, that is now a key downside level. I suspect price will hold for now, but it is an interesting 24 hours ahead, as this is the first sign of a bit of selling (outside the flash crash) in a while, and it is the first time price hasn’t held a key resistance level.

Bitcoin halving is exactly 365 days away BTC to 55000?

Bitcoin halving is exactly 365 days away, BTC to $55,000?

Bitcoin halving is exactly 365 days away, BTC to $55,000?

Hardware wallet manufacturer, Trezor, took to Twitter to point out that in exactly 365 days we will experience the much-anticipated third Bitcoin halving in history.

Twitter has been buzzing, and it is all about Bitcoin’s third halving, which according to hardware wallet manufacturer Trezor, will take place in exactly 365 days.

In case you are wondering, this means that the number of Bitcoin issued per each block, mined every ten minutes, will fall from 12.5 BTC to 6.25 BTC. In other words, this reduction of 50% will cut the block reward given to miners in half and further slow the production of Bitcoin’s finite supply.

Approximately by May 2020, as it is an estimate based on current hash power, the number of BTC issued per day will be reduced from 1,800 to 900 and as these halving events always had a positive impact on the price of Bitcoin in the past, many analysts are now convinced that the increased scarcity will once again spark yet another parabolic rally.

One such leading crypto analyst, known in the industry as Plan B, took to Twitter at the end of March, to share his latest prediction model that indicates Bitcoin will hit $55,000 due to Bitcoin's coming halving in 2020.

The crypto researcher, shared his analyzes which shows the potential impact of Bitcoin’s coming halving.

According to the crypto trader, people ask him all the time where the money would come from.

'People ask me where all the money needed for $1trn bitcoin market value would come from? My answer: silver, gold, countries with negative interest rate (Europe, Japan, US soon), countries with predatory governments (Venezuela, China, Iran, Turkey etc), billionaires and millionaires hedging against quantitative easing (QE), and institutional investors discovering the best performing asset of last 10 yrs.'

Although a spectacular prediction, the crypto trader added that time will be the judge on his prediction, and that 'we will probably know one or two years after the halving, in 2020 or 2021'.

Just today Chepicap reported that Brian Kelly explained on CNBC's Fast Money, why he feels the price of Bitcoin is on the rise, and made an overall bullish case, where he points out how institutional investors are coming into the space, retail applications are beginning to be rolled out and that we are about a year away from the next halving event.

Bitcoin Price Prediction – Good Crypto Market Entry Time for Investors to Buy BTC with USD?

Bitcoin Price Prediction -  Good Crypto Market Entry Time for Investors to Buy BTC with USD?

Bitcoin Price Prediction – Good Crypto Market Entry Time for Investors to Buy BTC with USD?

The cryptocurrency market started on week 21 of the year 2019 with a sharp correction in its prices, as many had expected, after high peaks of the year in all the protagonists of the ecosystem. At the time of writing a large red tide is dyed on the green sea that prevailed in the main crypts of the top 10 of the market.

The market has returned to levels of $ 240 billion and Bitcoin has lost control when it went down to 56.9%, after being at 60% a couple of days ago.

At the time of writing its spot price for trading in the BTC/USD pair it is $ 7,937.83 USD, with a contraction of -2.16% in the last 24 hours. Its volume has fallen from levels close to 23 trillion dollars, almost 50% less than what was moving a couple of days ago. Earlier today it was down around $7,749 after testing $8,250 over the weekend again.

A strong sale of assets in BitMex for almost $200 million and the possible delay in the decision of VanEck ETFs, have led to a retreat of nervous investors, while the big ‘whales' wait in the rear with massive orders of the purchase at lower prices of the cryptocurrency.

BitMex's XBT / USDT pair continues to dominate the scene with 16.24% contribution to the cryptocurrency market with its BTC derivative products and is the main indicator of the price, well above and Coinall, which follow it very closely away with 2.57% and 2.23% respectively.

In the short term, BTC price presents an interesting scenario for this current week. His upward trajectory projects us a sharp change in his current level to close levels @ $7100 to then resurface in a bullish race back to the @ $8000.

In short, we would be talking about a winning position for those who manage to enter on time, up to 15% profit.

The support is maintained in the moving average of prices for 100 days, which if broken could ensure compliance with the respective wave.

MACD has made a bearish cross, with red bars in the negative direction gaining position, indicating the path that BTC will follow in the coming days.

The Momentum indicator, on the other hand, has entered the descent zone but maintains a soft, almost horizontal slope that indicates that the fall of a prolonged bear market is not yet feasible in the cryptocurrency.
In the medium term, the cryptocurrency is totally bullish. His parable projected even though it was broken this weekend, it seems that we are in the presence of a new similar and bullish projection. The price levels are projected between support below the 7k line and a maximum resistance close to 10k. A difference of almost 30 percent is enough for a crypto asset for everything it represents.

The 30-day EMA indicator is medium-term support, which is still far from being beaten.

RSI for its part has not left the purchase zone and maintains a bullish position in the area to the rear to return to overbought levels when the bulls take control of the market again.

Aroon Uptrend has begun to descend but without force, and its counterpart still shows no signs of recovery, so the bullish moment still lasts in the medium term for the main cryptocurrency.

In general BTC and the crypto market are giving signals to those who did not have a clear picture of when to take positions in the main crypto markets. Decisions such as the ETF underway to be approved or rejected by VanEck, which expires this Tuesday, May 21, may mean the start of a bullish or bearish rally for BTC in the coming weeks.

Bitcoin price analysis: – BTC is back below 8000 amid mounting selling pressure

Bitcoin price analysis: - BTC is back below $8,000 amid mounting selling pressure

Bitcoin price analysis: – BTC is back below $8,000 amid mounting selling pressure

  • The resistance at $8,300 has stopped the recovery.

  • The short-term sellers pushed Bitcoin back below critical $8,000.

BTC/USD is hovering below $8,000 after an initial attempt to settle above $8,300 during early Asian hours. The first digital coin as lost over 3% of its value since the beginning of the day, though it is still in the green zone on a day-on-day basis. At this stage, the recovery from the recent lows has stalled, but the coin is still moving within the long-term bullish trend with 4.5% of gains on a day-on-day basis.

Bitcoin's technical picture

On the intraday charts, Bitcoin's recovery is capped by the psychological $8,300. This resistance area is strengthened with the upper boundary of 4-hour Bollinger Band (currently at $8,276) and the intraday high of $8,304. Once it is cleared, the upside is likely to gain traction with the next focus on the previous week high of $8,384 followed by the upper boundary of the daily Bollinger Band at $8,770.

On the downside, the local support is seen at $7,800 handle with the intraday low marginally above this level. A sustainable move lower will trigger more sell-off with the next aim at $7,650 with SMA50 4-hour on approach and a confluence of SMA100 and SMA200 (1-hour) right below this handle.

Do you Believe in Market Hive

Do you believe in Markethive, if so now is the time to take action. The price of bitcoin is high at the moment, which means you can agree to loan Markethive money for less bitcoin than ever (ILP).

Markethive ILP’s are nominated in $, so if you have just a small amount of Bitcoin 0.12571 you can sign up for $1,000 ILP. You can also use BCH, ETH,XMR or ZEC.

Remember you loan is secured with a corresponding amount of or own coin MVH, so in fact your investment is changing bitcoin for another cryptocurrency. Additionally, as Markethive starts to earn money as it grows you will start receiving a regular income from profits.

I have already used 50% of my bitcoin holding to set up an ILP, because I believe the future of the company is bright and I have nothing to lose.
