Analysis: Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple, Litecoin, Dash, and Ethereum Classic Following the Trump-dip

Posted on June 20th, 2017.

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...

Posted on June 19th, 2017.

The cryptocurrency market had a relatively calm weekend after the strong correction and rebound on Thursday and Friday. Litecoin’s surge to a new all-time high was the most important move of the period, while Dash also confirmed the relative strength that it has been showing, as it crept back up to the $200 level. ETC also broke out of...

Posted on June 16th, 2017.

Coins rebounded strongly yesterday after the morning massacre as both Bitcoin and Ethereum respected the support levels that we have been monitoring. The quick correction sliced a large chunk out of the capitalization of the majors, but the whole segment “only” lost a bit more than 10%, as of now, according to Coinmarketcap. The total...

Bitcoin Bitcoin spiked down towards the first main support zone near $1875, and it’s currently trading above the $2000 level again. I expect more downside, but trading these bounces with small positions could be lucrative. The $2230 level could cap the current bounce. Ethereum ETH’s overnight minimum was around 110, a 40% top to bottom...

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...

  DASH Dash has had a great couple days, but is no within sight of a 3rd arc pair at ~$150.  Likely will correct soon. Ethereum Classic ETC has also had a great few days.  A 5th arc pair is nearby at ~ $14.  It may be late to chase this one also. Ethereum ETH, like the preceding coins, has had a great few days, but is now within...

Stellar Lumens Stellar Lumens had had a huge advance, stopped not once but twice by the top of this setup. We are now below the 5th arc again, and just below (at?) the 2×1 angle...

As you all must know by now, I am a trader at heart, not an investor.  It’s always been difficult for me to buy-and-hold, because I feel like I can see where corrections will take place, so why not sell if you know its coming?

Posted on May 3rd, 2017.

Litecoin Litecoin is testing a 3rd arc on the 3 hour chart as we speak. This is hardly a buy signal, but if it gets through the arc, we will likely see a rally over the next week or so to ~ $25. There are 2 energy points due later in the day. It is possible that the coin will break down. But in this era of a seemingly endless supply of...

Totally Private Transactions With Cryptocurrency

Posted on March 27th, 2017.

Bitcoin’s true purpose is argued about. Some believe it is a store of value similar to gold, and that transaction fees should not matter due to this. Others, however, believe it is meant to be digital cash. When you hand over cash to a gas station cashier, there is no record besides the receipt. No one necessarily knows where that dollar...
