Whatever You Say, Jamie! JPMorgan CEO Will ‘Stop Talking About Bitcoin’

BITCOIN
Whatever You Say, Jamie! JPMorgan CEO Will ‘Stop Talking About Bitcoin’   JPMorgan CEO Jamie Dimon has said he is “not going to talk about Bitcoin anymore” as the company says it is “open-minded” about cryptocurrency. As reported by CNBC Thursday, Dimon, who caused a Bitcoin flash crash when he described it as a “fraud,” appears to have lost faith in his own judgment. “I wouldn't put this high on the category of important things in the world. But I'm not going to talk about bitcoin anymore," he told reports responding to a query. Adding to the apparent U-turn on the bank’s anti-Bitcoin sentiment, CFO Marianne Lake even went as far as to accept it. “We are open-minded for digital currencies that are properly controlled and regulated,” she added, along with praising th

F2Pool Deals Possible Death Blow to SegWit2x Fork, Withdraws Support

F2Pool Deals Possible Death Blow to SegWit2x Fork, Withdraws Support   BitGo engineer Jameson Lopp jubilantly posted to Twitter this morning that Bitcoin mining pool F2Pool has stopped signalling for SegWit2x. F2Pool stops signaling SegWit2X support. 15% down, 85% to go... https://t.co/iEjKn1gCgH pic.twitter.com/CU99EnnZ3j — Jameson Lopp (@lopp) October 12, 2017 Why does it matter? According to CoinDance, F2Pool currently mines 10% of the blocks on the Bitcoin network. As of yesterday, 95% of Bitcoin miners were signalling their support of the controversial fork, so with the loss of F2Pool’s 10%, Lopp’s numbers add up. SegWit2x was (or is) going to be a contentious hard fork, supported by near-unanimously by miners but opposed vehemently by Bitcoin’s Core development

Samson Mow Reaffirms $6,000 Target as Bitcoin Price Hits New All-Time High

PRICE ANALYSIS
Earlier today, on October 12, the Bitcoin price achieved a new all-time high at $5,220, despite the uncertainty surrounding the SegWit2x hard fork in November. Subsequent to the recent surge of the Bitcoin price, Samson Mow, the chief strategy officer at Blockstream, the blockchain technology development firm, reaffirmed his interim price target of $6,000 by the end of 2017. Just a reminder. $BTC at $6,000 by year end should be no problem if SegWit2x either doesn’t happen, or if it adds strong replay protection. https://t.co/L4Ctkqk52m — Samson Mow [NO2X] (@Excellion) October 12, 2017 Factors and Trend For the Short-Term Performance of Bitcoin Price The SegWit2x hard fork could play a vital role in the short-term trend of the Bitcoin price.

SELL PRESSURE SUSTAINED AS BEAR TREND LIKELY TO CONTINUE – ALTCOIN PRICE ANALYSIS AND KEY HIGHLIGHTS FOR 12.10.2017

SELL PRESSURE SUSTAINED AS BEAR TREND LIKELY TO CONTINUE – ALTCOIN PRICE ANALYSIS AND KEY HIGHLIGHTS FOR 12.10.2017

PRICE ANALYSIS
NEOUSD TECHNICAL ANALYSIS Including today’s candlestick, we can conclude that the last 3 candlesticks were presentative of a horizontal consolidation resulting into dojis. The technical term for such formation is a “spinning top”. In the real sense, there was reduced volatility and participation levels remain flat over the same period as shown by below average volumes. Furthermore, the price is still oscillating within 09.10.2017 Hi-Los-a tight $9 range. However, chances of a break below temporary support of $25, and a consequent bear trigger remains high. Sellers should actually begin selling and aim at $20 and $14 respectively. A reliable stop loss should be placed above today’s highs at around $30.

Bitcoin Price Watch; Here’s What’s On Right Now

PRICE ANALYSIS
Today is a big day for bitcoin. Anybody that caught yesterday’s analysis will know that we highlighted the 5000 mark as a key level to watch going forward. Specifically, we noted that if we saw a break of that level, we would almost certainly see a run towards 5100 and likely beyond based on fact that stop losses were being taken out (in a sort of short squeeze fashion) and that we would see some speculative volume flow towards bitcoin based on an increased media coverage given that a key level has collapsed. As it turns out, that’s exactly what happened. Price broke through this level early during the European session and we were ready to jump into a nice long road towards 5100 as and when it happened. Anyway, we got what should be a pretty interesting session ahead of us, so

Bitcoin Price Watch; Quick, Live Trades!

PRICE ANALYSIS
Things are moving too fast for us to waste any time on the bitcoin price action we have seen during the session today in the bitcoin price out of Europe because, if we do, we are liable to miss a potentially rewarding entry opportunity. We have set up some levels that we are hoping to use to take advantage of the fast action volatility during the session this evening and, beyond, into the Asian session tomorrow morning, and with any luck, we will see a continuation of this sort of momentum near term. So, let’s get our levels outlined so as to not miss any opportunity and to give readers an idea of where things stand in the market right now and, additionally, where we intend to jump in and out of the markets on any forward volatility. As ever, take a quick look at the chart below
