Bitcoin Eyes 50,000 Key Moving Average Interrupts Rally

  • Bitcoin gains ground but trims losses amid rising US equities, yield curve inversion

Bitcoin Prices Could See More Volatility Soon. Here's Why. | Barron's


Asia-Pacific markets are set for a risk-on session after US equities rallied despite a key yield curve inversion. The would-be recession “indicator” didn’t dissuade traders from buying high-beta risk assets, with the tech-heavy Nasdaq 100 Index (NDX) rising 1.68% to its highest level since January 20. Bitcoin rose but prices failed to eclipse yesterday’s multi-month high, even with a broadly weak US Dollar.

Bitcoin’s failure to take advantage of the risk-on market atmosphere may echo signs of headway being made in negations between Ukraine and Russia. Some have speculated that the war increased cryptocurrency usage amid attempts to navigate around traditional fiat currencies, where payment processing has been heavily impacted by Western sanctions. However, given recent performance, the latest lull may no more than simple profit-taking.

Gold prices broke below the 1900 level briefly in volatile trading. The drop is likely due to some froth coming out of market-based inflation expectations. The 1-year US breakeven rate fell below 6%, indicating that bond traders see inflation easing one year out. Meanwhile, consumers’ one-year inflation expectations hit a record high of 7.9%, according to a Conference Board survey.

This morning, Japan’s February retail sales figures are due out. New Zealand’s ANZ Bank will report business confidence along with its activity outlook for March at 00:00 GMT. The New Zealand Dollar rose over 0.5% from yesterday, aided by the Greenback’s weakness. Later today, Thailand’s central bank is set to hold its benchmark interest rate steady at 0.5%, according to a Bloomberg survey.


BTC/USD rose slightly from yesterday, but prices were capped at the 200-day Simple Moving Average (SMA). The 78.6% Fibonacci retracement level also appeared to provide some intraday resistance. The trend still favors more upside, with the Relative Strength Index (RSI) and MACD oscillators moving upward. A break above the 200-day SMA would put the 50,000 psychological level in focus, a level not traded at since December. Alternatively, a drop could push prices down to the 61.8% Fib level.

    • What is Foreign Exchange? Foreign exchange (Forex or FX) is the conversion of one currency into another at a specific rate known as the foreign exchange rate. The conversion rates for almost all currencies are constantly floating as they are driven by the market forces of supply and demand. The most traded currencies in the world are the United States dollar, Euro, Japanese yen, British pound, and Australian dollar. The US dollar remains the key currency, accounting for more than 87% of total daily value traded.Factors that Affect Foreign Exchange Rates Many factors can potentially influence the market forces behind foreign exchange rates. The factors include various economic, political, and even psychological conditions. The economic factors include a government’s economic policies, trade balances, inflation, and economic growth outlook. Political conditions also exert a significant impact on the forex rate, as events such as political instability and political conflicts may negatively affect the strength of a currency. The psychology of forex market participants can also influence exchange rates. The Foreign Exchange Market The foreign exchange market is a decentralized and over-the-counter market where all currency exchange trades occur. It is the largest (in terms of trading volume) and the most liquid market in the world. On average, the daily volume of transactions on the forex market totals $5.1 trillion, according to the Bank of International Settlements’ Triennial Central Bank Survey (2016). The forex market major trading centers are located in major financial hubs around the world, including New York, London, Frankfurt, Tokyo, Hong Kong, and Sydney. Due to this reason, foreign exchange transactions are executed 24 hours, five days a week (except weekends). Despite the decentralized nature of forex markets, the exchange rates offered in the market are the same among its participants, as arbitrage opportunities can arise otherwise. The foreign exchange market is probably one of the most accessible financial markets. Market participants range from tourists and amateur traders to large financial institutions (including central banks) and multinational corporations. Also, the forex market does not only involve a simple conversion of one currency into another. Many large transactions in the market involve the application of a wide variety of financial instruments, including forwards, swaps, options, etc. Foreign currency exchange (forex) A foreign currency exchange rate is a price that represents how much it costs to buy the currency of one country using the currency of another country. Currency traders buy and sell currencies through forex transactions based on how they expect currency exchange rates will fluctuate. When the value of one currency rises relative to another, traders will earn profits if they purchased the appreciating currency, or suffer losses if they sold the appreciating currency.
