Bitshares/Bitcoin, Daily Chart Analysis

We have been monitoring the correction in the coin for the past three weeks, and now Bitshares is on the verge of breaking the declining trendline that has been dominating the move. The currency is one of the first smaller coins to show strength since last week’s move and we expect at least a break-out above 0.00010 and test of the 0.00012 level (where we would reduce the initial position) in the coming period, with a possible move to 0.00014 and a test of the highs below 0.00018. The MACD seems to be forming a bottom near the 0 level, pointing to a resumption of the advancing trend. Stop losses could be set slightly below the 0.00008 level compared to Bitcoin.

We advise relatively small positions in the coin given the volatility in the smaller coins, and the wide stop-loss, with the still correction ETH and BTC also creating a risk of a more consolidation. That said the risk reward ratio looks attractive and long-term investors should add to their positions if the coin re-tests the 0.00008 level (which coincides with the 61.2% Fibonacci retracement of the recent move) in the coming days. The coin could be a good buying opportunity compared to the USD, where we expect an initial rally above the $0.30 level.

      poloniex.com – but be careful transferring cryptocurrencies between poloniex and coinbase, there have been issues with coinbase shutting down accounts that receive cryptocurrencies from coinbase.

    Thank you Chris
    but the poloniex can’t be used in NY since 2015..T.T
    NEW YORK RESIDENTS MUST CLOSE THEIR ACCOUNTS
    As of 8/8/2015 and in accordance with the New York State Department of Financial Services, Poloniex is no longer allowed to provide services to residents of the State of New York.

    wow, sorry to hear that … let me think for a moment, there has to be an exchange you can use.

    As an aside, it appears that bitshare is having some networking issues today. Trading has been down on poloniex since early afternoon. Hopefully things improve once they get it all back online and updated.

    If you bought on this buy recommendation on the Fourth of July and still hold your suffering a 25% loss if you set your stop loss on this recommendation you suffered a 20%.

      Hello Cryptokid, yes this was a losing trade. We warned to take a small position in this one, a volatile smaller coin. The upside potential was worth the risk IMHO.

        There wasn’t news or rumour to push this out of its downward channel

          You are right, the recommendation was based on technical strength and the long-term prospects of the coin, and it didn’t work out. As a trader, I see great potential in Bitshares (I still hold the coin despite the decline and I plan to buy more), and I believe the concept makes a lot of sense, and it could reform retail trading. That said, we had and will have losing trades in the future.

    First time I’ve dipped my toes into smaller cryptocurrency and I was expecting a loss, so took a small position. Did well in the larger cryptos this month, so figured why not – lost 20% on the stop-loss and just rolled the remainder over into Dash. I feel fine about taking that risk …

    Despite the losses reported above, It looks like a good moment to join BTS now.

Technical Analysis: Ripple Breaks Out Amid Ethereum Upgrade

Published

on

The major cryptocurrencies are on the rise once again today, with Ethereum’s major Byzantium update being in the center of attention. The second largest blockchain network has been updated through a hard fork, as usual, and the successful lock-in led to an initial surge in the price of the ETH token. The digital currency recovered above the $330 level after Sunday’s pull-back, but so far it failed to durably break-out above the prior swing high just above $340.

With the long-term momentum readings still being neutral, the coin could be on the verge of testing the $380 resistance soon, with the all-time high near $400 being the last major technical obstacle. Below $330 further support is found at $300 and $285.

Bitcoin is also on the rise after dipping below $5500 during the weekend, and the most valuable coin is joined in the rally by Ripple, which most likely finished its short-term correction and could be ready for another leg higher. The other majors are also generally higher, with NEO and IOTA being ahead of the pack, while the rest of the market trading near unchanged. As the broad rally seems to be well and alive, let’s see how the short-term charts are shaping up.

Ethereum Gets an Upgrade

Published

on

Digital currency Ethereum successfully upgraded to the Byzantium protocol on Monday, signaling that the larger Metropolis project is proceeding on track.

Ethereum Hard Fork

Ethereum’s developer community has indicated that the recent software upgrade is running smoothly so far. The fifth hard fork in the Ethereum blockchain officially occurred at 05:22 UTC, about 45 minutes earlier than previously estimated. The upgrade was scheduled for block 4,370,000.

Debates about the merits of the proposed changes were few and far between, with developers generally optimistic about the new protocol. Last-minute bugs, including a DoS vulnerability, appear to have been adequately addressed by Ethereum’s software developers.

Byzantium is the first leg of the Metropolis upgrade, which is the third phase of the Ethereum development project. It was also the first major upgrade since ether’s value skyrocketed. This made developers even more cautious about safeguarding the value of the token without stoking am unexpected chain split.

As we’ve explained previously, hard forks are a boon to ether prices due to the positive impact of the upgrade on the developer community. Ethereum has emerged not only as a store of value for investors seeking alternative assets, but a platform for entrepreneurs to launch their own digital currencies. The vast majority of the projects listed on Hacked.com’s ICO Ratings page have beem built on the Ethereum network. This trend is expected to continue as more startups embrace the platform’s technical specifications in pursuit of their own digital currency. ICOs have raised billions this year, despite regulatory crackdowns globally.

Ether continues to trade above $340.00 following the hard fork. The token has been well supported over the past week, with the broader cryptocurrency market following bitcoin’s lead.

The next phase of the Metropolis rollout is Constantinople. However, no date for its implementation has been specified.
