Hello and welcome to News BTC’s Market Outlook October 18.[embedded content] BTC/USD Bitcoin fell slightly during the day on Tuesday, as we continue to grind sideways overall. We have support underneath at the $5400 level, just as we have a massive amount of resistance at the $5800 level above. Ultimately, the market should continue to find dips, as we try to build up enough momentum to rally and reach towards the $6000 level above. If we can break above the $6000 level, the market should continue to go much higher. BTC/JPY The Bitcoin market went sideways initially, but has plenty of support underneath. The Bitcoin markets look as if they are trying to rally significantly, but the ¥650,000 level above will be massively resistive. If we can break above there, the market should continue t

Bitcoin Price Key Highlights Bitcoin price recently broke below the support of an ascending triangle highlighted in a previous article.

A double top pattern can also be seen and bitcoin price is moving closer to testing the neckline around $5400.

Goldman Sachs analysts including Jeffrey Currie and Michael Hinds have compared Bitcoin to gold, and the relevance of Bitcoin as a safe haven asset in the global economy. Demand For Bitcoin as Safe Haven Asset is Increasing Over the past two years, the demand for Bitcoin has increased at an exponential rate, as the market cap of Bitcoin surpassed that of leading financnail institutions such as Goldman Sachs. Specifically, as billionaire investors including hedge fund legend Mike Novogratz have stated, institutional and retail investors have begun to invest in Bitcoin as a long-term investment and a safe haven asset. “I can hear the herd coming,” said Novogratz. “I was just in San Francisco, met with a few big institutional investors and their still a ways away but they’re coming. Lots of f
So that is another day complete from a European perspective in our bitcoin price trading efforts and, just as we suggested might be the case this morning, it’s been a pretty strange one. Action is all over the place at the moment and this is making difficult to establish any sort of consistent strategy. It’s not impossible, of course, and our intraday strategies were designed to make it as simple as possible, but it does mean that we have had to be extra careful with our target placement and our risk management parameters so as to avoid being chopped out on the back of any erratic movement. So, with this noted, let’s try and move forward and continue to draw profit from the market as and when things move. As ever, take a quick look at the chart below before we get started so as to get an i
General Notes USD remains firm across the board NEOUSD TECHNICAL ANALYSIS Figure 1: NEOUSD Daily Chart for 17.10.2017 Weak price movement and horizontal consolidation continues as bears and bulls size each other up. As a matter of fact, bull volumes remain muted for the second day in a row with price action stuck within a tight $4 range inside Sunday’s Hi-Los. The resistance trend lines drawn from 08.10.2017 and 14.10.2017 highs and support line continues to hold prices. So, we wait until there is a break out from any side of our boundary lines. This break out will be important if it is accompanied by above average volumes. DASHUSD TECHNICAL ANALYSIS DASHUSD-Daily Chart-17.10.2017 So, as yesterday’s candlestick closed a stochastic sell signal was printed and bears were somehow in charge. W
Hello and welcome to News BTC’s Market Outlook October 17.[embedded content] DASH/USD DASH continues to be very choppy, but we did have a slightly positive session on Monday. It looks as if the $315 level is causing a bit of resistance though, and we may have some choppiness to get through in order to go much higher. Once we do, I suspect that the next target is going to be $322.50, which has previously offered resistance. I still believe in buying dips, and I think that there is a certain amount of support at the $300 handle. LTC/USD Litecoin continues the sideways grind that we have seen over the last several sessions, with the $62 level offering a bit of support. The $66 level above offers resistance, and if we can break above there I think the market then goes looking towards the $70
Hello and welcome to News BTC’s Market Outlook October 17.[embedded content] ETH/USD Ethereum initially rallied on Monday, but found enough resistance at the $352 level to turn around and drop towards the $336 level. There seems to be quite a bit of buying pressure there though, and as a result we have bounced again. I think we will eventually break out to the upside, and a move above the $352 level is the signal to start adding to any positions you have. We’re knocking on the door, but we just haven’t made the move yet. ETH/BTC Ethereum has rallied slightly against Bitcoin, but quite frankly we have not seen a major move and of course we are not at highs. The 0.062 level above is resistance, and I think we are still essentially sideways, so having said that I think that the market will
