Posted on June 22nd, 2017.

Cryptocurrencies had a very quiet day, with Ethereum’s slide and Ripple’s pull-back defining sentiment. Bitcoin recovered after yesterday’s dip, and finished the US session near the $2700 level again. With financial markets definitely in summer mood, short-term traders might be in for more frustrating days and sudden moves in both...

Price Analysis of Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple, Litecoin, and Ethereum Classic

Posted on June 21st, 2017.

It’s been a strange and slightly bearish day for the crypto-market following the sudden spike lower in altcoins yesterday, as Bitcoin failed to follow through on its strength, but altcoins also acted weak, especially Ethereum. Ripple also pulled back heavily after its strong move while Litecoin remained strong, trading just below its...

Cryptocurrencies had another calm day, until the end of the US session, at least, when a tweet from Donald Trump regarding North Korea caused turmoil in financial markets. Altcoins were sold and Bitcoin got bought after the announcement that reignited speculation about a possible “intervention” by the US. Most coins recovered quickly off...

August 1st is Bitcoin’s Judgement Day: “Bitcoin may Need to Die”

Posted on June 17th, 2017.

Vinny Lingham, CEO of Civic Keys, thinks August 1, the proposed date for the Bitcoin scaling, is not an independence day for the trailblazer of cryptocurrencies – but in fact a judgement day. In a Twitter post on early Thursday morning, the crypto investor and analysis pundit wrote that: “Bitcoin may need to “die”...

Cryptocurrency Update: Bitcoin and Ethereum Down by 30-40% as Correction Accelerates, Time to Buy?

Posted on June 15th, 2017.

How long will the correction last? This is probably the biggest question in the minds of the crypro-trading community right now.  As we warned yesterday, and (a little early) last week, Bitcoin and Ethereum were overbought on the long run and we concluded that: (…) a 30%-40%-50% correction, that has been the normal for Bitcoin in the...

Cryptocurrency Analysis: Ethereum Holds Strong amid Broad Correction

Posted on June 12th, 2017.

The crypto-coin market is very active today, as yesterday’s string of break-outs and pull backs triggered volatility in the majors and the small cap coins as well. Ethereum’s surge reached as high as $400 in early trading, but the decline in Bitcoin “infected” the other coins during the US session. As we noted in our long-term outlook,...

Analysis: Ethereum and Bitcoin Stole the Show

Posted on May 26th, 2017.

It was a busy day yesterday.  Bitcoin and Ethereum stole the show for the most part; they sucked money out of the other coins as traders tried to chase the trades.  For the most part, I can say that both those two coins went higher, and longer, than I would have guessed.  But speaking for myself, I would not buy either coin here.  They...
