I read that processing one single Bitcoin transaction requires enough energy to power nine U.S. households in a day. No wonder the price is going up. Enjoy !!!

Heading down again, may try to retest 14225. Out of interest how is IG handling shorts on these big plunges? It's one thing not being able to get in on a steep rise but it's much worse not being able to get out when price plummets.

Interesting maybe waiting on interest rates. Ether has taken off my Boll method would have caught it on the 1hr chart (USD) (DBF)

Maybe Bitcoin waiting on interest rates, and in the meantime people thought Ether cheaper. I also think Ether is currently hammering Bitcoin in the media.

Hi ,  Depends on how you would want to trade it.

For spread bets yes with a guaranteed stop but problems getting orders accepted but trading on an exchange no, both routes have there problems caused by the very high volatility.

 

See threads,

Not sure of the meaning but my Bollinger Bands are closing in on IG Bitcoin (USD) price in a heavy weight kind of way.

What, no pic?  Yes they will be as price struggles making higher highs continuing to lose momentum though still above the 20 sma on the 4 hour but only just. Also seen in the continuing RSI divergence.

Interesting. I was looking at the three hour one which appeared to have more force closing in. I had only wondered about its potential without having done any research  because of the Fed announcement due later today. Briefly looking back at recent history it would not have looked like there was much action to be traded going forward.

 

I have been experimenting with the pic's but fear I loose detail if I don't use a camera.

 

When you've got time remind me how you did the picture?

, ok, so 3 standard deviations on the B Bands and a 3 hr chart and you are therefore looking for a break up or down from the trendlines which is similar to a break of the B Bands themselves. I add a 20, 3.00 on a 4 hour for comparison, but the top band not yet corresponding but clearly a big pinch.

Interesting you're a genius finding all this kind of stuff. I wonder if Bitcoin will take a hit in the Far East tonight because I'm personally getting pretty fed up watching paint dry !!!!

Seems not even the Chinese market could get excitement going and I was reduced to watching the 5 minute chart of Bitcoin. I'm off.

The big guys definitely appear to have taken control for now. It could be called "pump and prime", arbitrage, or, something under-the-counter !

1 hour chart price trapped in symmetrical triangle and coiling, may break up or down. SMA catching up may hint to a break to the upside.

I put out yesterday that last Bitcoin downturn to 10th December lasted 12 x 4hr bars. We are on number 12 now till midday GMT. The low occurred last time in bar 12 Have we seen the low already? Market would suspect a real fix if we got exactly same pattern as last time !

 

Ether looking strong. Maybe Bitcoin is going to wait till Ether hits where Bitcoin started the year.

 

I'd said it before but I would love Ether to end the year where Bitcoin started, and of course for Bitcoin to hit 20,000 or even a Fibonacci number like 21,000.

Bitcoin just broke the low now in its 12th 4hr bar. Interesting to see where we go with that next. A real fix if it works out same.

Was held after the break down at the 38.2% Fib level then went back to test the triangle bottom before plunging down and now testing 18000. Next level down is the 50% Fib at 17700.

You are a genius. I was thinking it could ***** 17700 without the Fib stuff just by looking at the patterns of last time. Then again if the rest of the market thinks same it may not get there because everybody is looking for the next buying opportunity !

Interesting battle on now as price has gone back to retest the 38.2 level and found more sellers.

    • 1) It would be really helpful to be able to change a stop loss from normal to guaranteed stop in the online trading platform. Currently we can only do that on the mobile app which is ridiculous because the online trading platform should be having more features than the mobile app. 2) Allow us to set limit (take profit) for partial position size. Example if I buy 5 contracts of AUD/USD at 0.7150. I would like the option to be able to set take profit for 3 contracts at 0.7170 and 2 contracts at 0.7190.   
    • Hi Folks, The platform advertises that you need to place three or more trades in the previous month to avail of the free trading on US stocks (no $15 commission) for the subsequent month. However, even with that commission fee gone you're going to have to pay IG for the currency conversion each time. You're going back and forth between buying and selling, GBP to USD to GBP ...this will equate to a lot of money. So, you've realised the above and to avoid this really ridiculous and expensive merry-go-round you turn on multi-currency feature, right? In your head you think:   "I want to exclusively trade US stocks, I've waited one month (you'd have rathered to just pay IG and not need to wait), made more than three trades on that currency merry-go-round, I am happy to pay the reasonable quarterly fee to IG from here on in and keep the account as USD while availing of their most advertised feature, the commission free trading on US stock market". The new month arrives and you can have a great time trading on the US stock market with your dollar that doesn't keep eating away at any trade profits with each buy and sell. However, the next month arrives and menacing commission fee is back! But you traded at least three times last month, what gives? Ah! But you used the multicurrency feature, and this means on the subsequent month you will not be eligible for commission free trading. You're back to square one. Your choice is to either pay IG the fee for every conversion in every trade or prevent this and keep the respective currency but also you must pay IG a commission.    Anyone else experience this? I'm hoping I'm completely wrong, but contacting the helpdesk seems to confirm this ...
    • IG need to provide a stock screener, live scanner for volume/price movement, pre-market data,  and rapid execution for private traders and rebate fees for trading view as they do for PRT, with traders who trade frequently. One can be ambitious and ask IG to provide a free platform like thinkorswim as Ameritrade does with current news stream  - again a free rebate for access to Benziga or similar with rebates linked to the amount of trades.  The money spent on IG TV perhaps can be spent somewhere else towards provision of some free resources to private traders/investors.  The IG tv is a serious issue - do IG really think that IG TV add any value?  Access to financial publications/sites might be a better thing.  The effort of IG to provide its own academy, advice etc is and always will probably a poor quality duplication.  Please learn/borrow from American brokers and now that their commission charges are Zero.  PRT - Can that be downloadable.  The web based form just slows everything down and very clunky and the charts are not elegant at all.  They have a community and they do develop or help develop some strategies. We do not want to lose them. But a live screener /scanner please.  I just realised that I do not even know if IF IT team even reads these comments or prioritise any of the suggestions. Please get rid of your IG TV investment, it is very annoying. And yes VWAP/anchored VWAP please on the charts. Give the private investors some of the rebates too. Is Charlotte, finally providing our redemption by talking these to the right eyes and ears! Overall, IG really is not that bad given others at least for UK investors. Perhaps just a less spread and less of that dreaded, sudden declaration that this stock is only for close and you can not open new position. I think that and the liquidity  excuse is lame unless IG is beholden to a particular market maker or IG somehow gets it in a very large position by itself.
