TETHER DE-PEGGING EXACERBATES CRYPTOCURRENCY CRASH

Heavy losses once again in the cryptocurrency space with de-pegging fears in stablecoins exacerbating the current rout. Yesterday’s focus had been on the de-pegging in Terra, which saw the likes of Luna fall over 90%. However, concerns are now mounting over Tethers potential de-pegging which would have a far greater consequence for cryptocurrencies. This morning, Tether briefly fell below $0.95 before quickly retracing back to $0.98. Looking ahead, this will be a key sentiment gauge for the Crypto space.

BITCOIN BREAKS THROUGH KEY LEVELS

Bitcoin: Key support levels broken overnight with 30k and the 2021 lows both giving way. However, there would be signs of encouragement IF 30k is reclaimed in quick fashion. That said, below 25k exposes the prior 2017 peak at 19500.

Ethereum: Through 2k this morning, although triple bottom support at 1700 has held up for now. While this might offer some comfort, a turnaround in equities will be needed for a more meaningful recovery. Should the triple bottom fail to hold, there is little in the way of support until the March 2021 lows at 1280-1320.

Equity Sell-Off Prompts Demand For JPY and Bond

Equities: While the market response to the higher than expected inflation print was a choppy one initially, there was little doubt that overall, it was bad for risk appetite. In turn, S&P 500 futures are now testing 3900 and any bounce backs are likely to be sold into. The bias remains to sell the rip. That being said, some normality has resumed with both the Japanese Yen and Bonds seeing flight to safety flows in amidst the latest market sell-off.

    • Crypto trading is a bit complicated when it comes to understanding the dynamics in profit making. Some people are more inclined to technical analysis which of course has been the widely used trading tool but some are more inclined to fundamentals but sticking to fundamentals alone could be highly risky in my own opinion even though crypto is also financial instrument that often respond to news updates.  A blend of the two could provide a safety net for traders in minimizing losses compared to potential profit. The above case scenario is largely attributed to perp futures trading and other derivatives. TA and FA could also be very useful for spot trading but I feel timely listing of projects could largely determine one's profit from investing in a project. These may not be for all projects cos some are **** coins. This could be a personal perspective but I have noticed listing speed is also another important factor to consider along with project fundamentals when trading and if we are to include listing speed as a factor for choosing trade then it will affect our choice of trading platform cos some are more inclined to top cap projects while others are more inclined low cap gems.   My experience with ORDI has proven this trading skill rewarding. ORDI was first listed on Bitget before other exchange joined the listing party after it saw rapid adoption reflecting in it significant MCap growth. This chart should give us a glimpse of my experience with this strategy.
    • In a stunning display of market momentum, the PANDORA token, the first of its kind, has skyrocketed an astonishing 4872% from its introduction on February 2nd to February 7th. This remarkable performance has not only caught the attention of cryptocurrency enthusiasts but has also solidified PANDORA’s position as a groundbreaking asset in the digital currency landscape. Pandora's ERC-404 protocol revolutionizes the token landscape by seamlessly blending the qualities of ERC20 and ERC721 standards. This experimental mixed implementation enables persistent liquidity and non-fungibility for NFTs, unlocking a realm of possibilities previously unexplored. Adding to the excitement, Bitget Wallet is gearing up to introduce a specialized section dedicated to ERC-404 token market listings. This feature creates a hub for tokens that blend the best of both worlds—the liquidity of ERC-20s and the uniqueness of ERC-721 NFTs. I have come to believe that, the electrifying surge of PANDORA token and the innovative ERC-404 standard is not just a fleeting trend but a window into the future of cryptocurrency.
