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

?

    • Elliott Wave Analysis Trading Lounge Day Chart, Euro/British Pound (EURGBP) Day Chart EURGBP Elliott Wave Technical Analysis FUNCTION: Trend MODE: Impulsive STRUCTURE: Orange wave 3 POSITION: Navy blue wave 3 DIRECTION NEXT HIGHER DEGREES: Orange wave 4 DETAILS: Orange wave 2 appears complete; now orange wave 3 of 3 is active. Wave Cancel Invalid Level: 0.84997 The EURGBP Elliott Wave Analysis on the day chart suggests the market is currently in a trending phase. The trend's mode is impulsive, indicating strong, directional price movements. The specific wave structure being analyzed is orange wave 3, positioned within navy blue wave 3. This position indicates the market is in the third wave of a larger impulsive sequence, often characterized by substantial price movements within the wave cycle. The next higher degree direction is indicated as orange wave 4. This suggests that following the completion of the current impulsive wave (orange wave 3), the market is expected to enter a corrective phase (orange wave 4). This phase typically involves a pullback or consolidation before the market resumes its primary trend direction. Detailed analysis shows that orange wave 2 appears to be complete. This suggests that the market has finished a corrective phase and has now entered orange wave 3 of 3, which is part of the impulsive sequence. This wave is crucial as it generally indicates a strong continuation of the trend, often marked by significant price movements. A critical aspect of this analysis is the wave cancellation invalid level, set at 0.84997. This level is vital for validating the current wave structure. If the market price falls below this point, it would invalidate the current wave analysis, necessitating a re-evaluation of the wave pattern. In summary, the EURGBP day chart analysis indicates the market is in an impulsive trend phase within orange wave 3, following the completion of orange wave 2. The current focus is on orange wave 3 of 3 within this structure, suggesting strong upward momentum. The analysis anticipates a transition to orange wave 4, a corrective phase, once the current impulsive wave completes. The wave cancel invalid level is 0.84997, crucial for maintaining the validity of the current wave analysis.   Elliott Wave Analysis Trading Lounge 4 Hour Chart, Euro/British Pound (EURGBP) 4 Hour Chart EURGBP Elliott Wave Technical Analysis FUNCTION: Trend MODE: Impulsive STRUCTURE: Gray wave 3 POSITION: Orange wave 3 DIRECTION NEXT HIGHER DEGREES: Gray wave 4 DETAILS: Gray wave 2 appears complete; now gray wave 3 of 3 is active. Wave Cancel Invalid Level: 0.84334 The EURGBP Elliott Wave Analysis on the 4-hour chart suggests the market is in a trend phase. The mode of this trend is impulsive, indicating strong, directional price movements. The current wave structure under analysis is gray wave 3, with a specific focus on orange wave 3 within this structure. This positioning implies the market is in the third wave of a larger impulsive sequence, typically characterized by the most substantial price movement within the wave cycle. The next higher degree direction is indicated as gray wave 4. This suggests that after the completion of the current impulsive wave (gray wave 3), the market is expected to enter a corrective phase (gray wave 4). This phase usually involves a pullback or consolidation before the market resumes its primary trend direction. Detailed analysis shows that gray wave 2 appears to be complete. This suggests the market has finished a corrective phase and has now entered gray wave 3 of 3, which is part of the impulsive sequence. This wave is crucial as it generally indicates a strong continuation of the trend, often marked by significant price movements. A critical aspect of this analysis is the wave cancellation invalid level, set at 0.84334. This level is vital for validating the current wave structure. If the market price falls below this point, it would invalidate the current wave analysis, necessitating a re-evaluation of the wave pattern. In summary, the EURGBP 4-hour chart analysis indicates the market is in an impulsive trend phase, specifically within gray wave 3, following the completion of gray wave 2. The current focus is on orange wave 3 within this structure, suggesting strong upward momentum. The analysis anticipates a transition to gray wave 4, a corrective phase, once the current impulsive wave completes. The wave cancel invalid level is 0.84334, crucial for maintaining the validity of the current wave analysis.   Technical Analyst : Malik Awais Source : Tradinglounge.com get trial here!  
    • This looks like a promising development for the TON ecosystem. Accelerating growth through Tonnect 2024 could really enhance the network's capabilities and adoption. It is surprising that how the new features will integrate with existing TON projects and what kind of partnerships or collaborations are planned.
    • AlphaTrade looks interesting. How does it integrate with IG's platform and any specific advantages it offers compared to other trading tools. Has anyone had hands-on experience with it yet?
