Bitcoin Breakout

Recommended Posts

Bitcoin is on a rip this morning in an attempt to break up out of the long term triangle pattern.

A quick smack down as well. Doesn't look like a pump and dump either where you would expect to see a sudden huge single candle then a steady controlled sell off as the pumpers exit exchanging contracts with the FOMO'ers.

This was a steady growing ramp up then sudden huge selling like someone took the opportunity to get out big.

15 min chart.

Thanks for this. It seems Cryptos are mainly blue at the moment but that long term downward bias is still there. It will be interesting to see how they react later on in the day and evening.

That was certainly short-lived. Which market(s) does IG use to set the price for BitCoin? The move here all the way up to 7340.80 was much higher than at say eToro which only got up to 6751.

There is also a large difference in BTC price between IG and Plus500. Historically they were $40 apart, from this morning it’s more like $400-500 apart. Anyone know why?

Seeing the usual wide range on the different exchanges,  the day high is between 6810 and 7788 for Bitfinex, GDAX and Kraken ...

So is the explanation that IG, eToro and Plus 500 use a different set of exchanges to determine the price? I've not noticed such a wide divergence before.

(Helps me to understand the SEC's reluctance to allow ETFs when even respected players have such a variance on price.)

      Another trade-war headline downs sentiment: There’s some news floating through the wires that sentiment has taken a hit overnight courtesy of some unfavourable trade-war headlines. It’s been reported that Chinese officials aren’t co-operating with their US counterparts, as it applies to certain sensitive elements of trade-negotiations. The S&P500, which had been developing some intraday momentum prior to the release, has retraced throughout trade, consequent to the news. It’s closed flat for the day, but despite this fall, moves in rates and bond markets suggest the fundamentals currently remain the same. The all-important balance between financial conditions and growth expectations is still there, ultimately supporting the bullishly inclined, as markets now prepare for tomorrow morning’s meeting of the US Federal Reserve.


      The unresolvable issues: It’s perhaps an assumption alone, but the (very vague) report leaked to the market about trade negotiations surely pertains to one of the well-understood, seemingly intractable issues embroiling the US and China. Those, at its core, unrelated to economics, but to strategic, and somewhat philosophical differences. These are intellectual property theft, currency manipulation, and Chinese military posturing in the Asian region – especially the South China Sea. These differences are relevant because they boil down to brutal power-politics, and an essential clash of ideologies. This isn’t to suggest a trade-deal, and future bilateral cooperation can’t exist between both parties; but that whatever deal is struck, it’s unlikely to put an end to geopolitical tensions.
