Bitcoin Cash

Recommended Posts

Bitcoin Cash seems to be leading the chasing pack behind the leader Litecoin in relation to the current and most recent price action in Cryptocurrencies that IG offers on its platform.

I include the chart (daily) below for Bitcoin Cash:

Bitcoin Cash is trading above its 20, 50 and 100 DMA's. However the interesting point is that they seem to be changing to a bias towards the curves sloping upwards which is a bullish indicator for a short term trending move upwards.

Note: It may literally only be a short term move. Also the indicator is based on historical price action so it does not guarantee the future price action.

This hit $171 today and is looking rather bullish. 

I stated something similar on the Litecoin thread which is to be aware of any strong trend reversal with sharp and quick downward moves which lasts a few days. This has been witnessed several times over several Cryptocurrencies. One must be mentally prepared for this. Of course it may not happen but this is a Cryptocurrency after all!

Bitcoin Cash is up nearly 7% this morning at around 5:43 am. It is in the leading pack with Litecoin, Bitcoin and then itself.

Bitcoin Cash is up 22% just 11 hours after I posting early this morning. Now add leverage to the mix and one can begin to see how lucrative trades in Cryptocurrencies can be. This is even after any overnight charges and ridiculous spreads.

If one forgets whether they believe in Cryptocurrencies or not and just treat it as an asset which you can trade based on price action rather than any fundamental flaws the specific Cryptocurrency may have then it does open up a whole new arena of trading for those who have a higher risk appetite and are more aggressive traders. 

Bitcoin Cash is outperforming all the other Cryptocurrencies at around 5:00 pm that are available on IG's platform.

Bitcoin Cash is up over 30% now is leaving the rest for dust today. I thought I would try and carry out some quick research to try and establish why Bitcoin Cash is performing so much more better than Bitcoin or Litecoin. I found the following article:

Bitcoin Cash is still strong and trading over 32% at around 9:15 pm. Impressive performance today. I personally think Bitcoin Cash will need to ensure it can stay above $200 as otherwise it could tumble downwards as quick as it stormed upwards. The other factor is that there could be a lot of technical automated buying based on certain price points being triggered. 

I have a feel that Cryptos are going to be wildly volatile and lots of tight stop losses and even slightly wider ones are going to be stopped out even if they carried on going upwards.

Bitcoin Cash is up another 17% this morning at 5:28 am! This is based on a price of around $256. Apparently it hit overnight $292.20! Wow.

Bitcoin Cash is again the best performing Crypto available on IG’s platform. I am not sure if the Japan news I posted yesterday is playing a big part in this? It seem on the face of it that it could well be. 

Also it is more attractive a trade from a margin requirement for those who have have to stump up far more capital for trading Bitcoin.

Bitcoin Cash is up over another 30% today. It is more than double the next best performing Crypto on IG which is Litecoin at 15%.

Bitcoin Cash up a staggering 40% today! Add leverage and I think I am feeling dizzy. 

The one thing I have learnt with Cryptocurrencies is that more complex technical analysis can be overkill and persuade / convince you not to trade. Add the fundamental uncertainty and most definately most will stay away from them. 

I tend to concentrate on the price action and when they are in bullish mode like present then there is no asset as aggressive as this.

For me Bitcoin Cash and Litecoin have just proved to be exceptional trading opportunities which some will no doubt stay away from as in their opinion this is junk. They may be right or not but if you can make stellar (excuse the pun) returns on junk, why not? Surely it is better than making a loss or not much on quality?

For me the beauty of price action is that you can detach yourself from the actual asset and just trade the price action rather than concentrate on what the specific asset is. This is a distinct advantage of Trend Following and part of the excitement of it. It can be one trend in one asset and then another trend in a totally different asset. It does not matter what the asset is. It is the trend and price action which is important and is what you are trading.

The question now is what sort of retracement Bitcoin Cash experiences. Will it adhere to traditional Fibonacci retracements? We are about to find out.

I thought this was a good opportunity to share Bitcoin Cash's website.

I should have actually done this at the start of this thread but only just realised that many may not be aware of the difference between Bitcoin and other alternative Cryptocurrencies.

I posted on another Crypto related thread how some of my best returns came over the weekend and low and behold Bitcoin Cash and Litecoin are performing strongly and are over 10% at the time of this post early Saturday evening.

It is 21:24 UK time and Bitcoin Cash is up 11% already. There will have been a lot of traders who were stopped out due to the extreme volatility witnessed today. They also would not have gone back in but Bitcoin Cash is moving way ahead of other Cryptos as the rest are all trading in the red bar Bitcoin Gold which is up 0.74%.

It is 5:30 am and Bitcoin Cash is up 6.84%. It seems to be following Bitcoin in trying to break out.

Bitcoin Cash is really struggling to stay above $300 level at the moment. 

It has had two big goes recently and failed. If it could crack the $300 level then I can see it having the potential to go all the way up to $400 without much resistance.

Bitcoin Cash and Litecoin were some of the benefactors of the recent rally in Cryptocurrencies.

So what is the difference between the two? Well there are several but at present Bitcoin Cash has larger block sizes than Litecoin. Now this is irrelevant at this moment in time as neither are running at their optimum levels or coming close to the capacity to even test current block size levels.

Litecoin on the other hand has faster block times (transaction processing speeds). I think (do not quote me) but transaction volume is higher or certainly was higher for Litecoin than Bitcoin Cash. 

One of the similarities between the two is that both want to be the Crypto Standard of electronic / digital cash. Both have faster transaction speeds than Bitcoin and are trying to position themselves into this space which Bitcoin has not been able to conquer.

It will be interesting to see if Bitcoin Cash goes below the Fibonacci Retracement of 38.2%.

Bitcoin Cash is up 3.84% at the time of this post and hit $249.10. It will be interesting to see if it has another go at £300 or whether it just continues on its downward trajectory.

It is 08:57 am UK time and Bitcoin Cash seems primed for a breakout and push upwards.

The 1 hour chart seems to be syncing with the daily chart. Let us see what happens for the rest of today.

Bitcoin Cash is up nearly 10% at the time of writing this post. Of course Bitcoin started this most recent rally but it is the usual suspects of Litecoin and Bitcoin Cash that are leading the race today. 

Also looking at the 'daily' then it seems there is a clear run towards $400 on the cards here. Not much resistance to worry about prior to this so it could be a short and sharp move towards $400. Of course this may not materialise and could fail but it is looking both positive and bullish for Bitcoin Cash to really go for $400.

Bitcoin Cash is up nearly 13%. 

The margin requirements for both Bitcoin Cash and Litecoin are more attractive than some of the other Cryptocurrencies. Especially when taking leverage into account. 

Some of the best moves seem to happen over the weekend so those who close their positions on Friday to avoid charges and large price swings seem to miss out on some of the biggest gains either on the long side or short.

Bitcoin Cash is up another staggering 11% this morning. It hit $387.10 and seems on a strong course towards $400+.

The $400 - $600 price range is going to be very interesting for Bitcoin Cash. I think for investors and traders to take Bitcoin Cash seriously then it is going to have to move strongly towards this range.

For some reason Bitcoin Cash is the only Crypto available on IG's platform which is not down and in the 'red'.

Now it should decline and join the rest but I do wonder if there is a reason why it has not declined and whether there is further upside with Bitcoin Cash?

I do not know but I shall be paying very close attention to the price action to see if can indicate what is happening.

Looking at the chart 'daily' for me the next stop for Bitcoin Cash is between the $400 - $600 range as I have previously stated.

I think if it breaks the $420 mark then the potential is there for up to the $637 area.

Well Bitcoin Cash did not suffer any such drop. That may come later on.

However an important point is that it hit $407.80. It then faced the resistance some of us expected. If it can get through this resistance then it seems to have a clear run up to the $550 - $650 area. Bitcoin Cash is up another 9% at the times of this post.
