Price action, regulation, intervention, or the future of blockchain... anything!

To bring this to as many peoples attention as possible I'm just going to tag the last few community posters who have commented on cryptocurrencies on Community over the last few days / weeks. Please see the post above for more info :)

One reason is the wild disparity of outlook as to where cryptocurrencies will fit into the financial landscape of the future.

Another is that 'the crowd' has joined the market, often with borrowed money, and they are very very jittery.

 

Bitcoin has 'pretty much failed' as a currency, Bank of England boss Mark Carney declares.

Thin liquidity and poor ramps for sure, the market took off on crowd intervention (not just normal retail) who are not using algos, the pros were very late to the party. All the while central bankers and governments have been totally disparaging and have tried to talk down crypto and erect road blocks at every turn, the fickle crowd read the headlines and either rush to rejoin or rush to cover, it's a bit like watching a tennis match.

We all know they are, but WHY are crypto markets so volatile?

Thanks  - I'll put this message to the team. It will be interesting to see their views on this as itcan be answered from a number of different perspectives (fundamental make up of the order book, speculative investment by 'the herd' as caseynotes pointed out, or a number of other potential factors). Thanks!

Yes ,  true, thinking about it all spread betters are trading on borrowed money but the best bit was the advert sponsoring the article that encouraged loading up your credit card to buy bitcoin, wonderfully paradoxical given the context of the piece.

 

There are two lines of thought, this all reminiscent of the classic story of the elevator boy giving stock tips circa 1920's, but is also reminiscent of tales of market movers looking to get in after the event, won't buy high, so drive price down first then buy. Only the future can confirm the present.

What are the three biggest risks to crypto?

 

What are the three biggest potential positive drivers to crypto?

 

Will there be an ether etf?

 

Why do people care so much about an American etf on bitcoin when there are others throughout the world? (Sweden etf)

 

The only reason bitcoin hasn’t been squashed by the US is because it hasn’t proven to be in direct competition with the USD. If it ever does, will bitcoin be in risk?

 

Is USDT a legitimate concern?

 

And yeh like above, cos this guys a broker - what are the market reasons on why crypto is so volatile

?

    • Stay informed on the latest market trends with our expert analysis of the US stock indices: SP500, NASDAQ, Dow Jones, and Russell 2000. Our analysis suggests the current decline in the market is corrective and could turn into a full five-wave impulse move, leading to a deeper drop. Keep a close eye on the USD DXY as the Federal Reserve's meeting on Wednesday may impact the market. If 102 serves as a support for the dollar, it could result in further gains for the dollar and losses for global indices, forex, and commodities.
