Price analysis 9/16: BTC, ETH, XRP, DOT, BCH, BNB, LINK, CRO, LTC, BSV

Bitcoin and a few altcoins have broken above key resistance levels, which suggests that the bulls are attempting to take control of the market. This week MicroStrategy, a Nasdaq-listed company, announced that it had added 16,796 Bitcoin (BTC) to its existing holding of 21,454 Bitcoin. This means in less than a year the firm has amassed 38,250 Bitcoin. This is a defining moment as MicroStrategy becomes the first public company to adopt a Bitcoin standard.  Other large companies may follow in MicroStrategy’s footsteps but they are likely to purchase at…

Crypto Price Analysis September 16: BTC, ETH, LTC, TRX, EOS

The cryptocurrency market is trying to recover. And if such assets as Bitcoin and Ethereum are looking quite confident in favor of further growth, the other ones, like Litecoin and EOS are very likely to fall and test their respective support areas. Dmitriy Gurkovskiy, a senior analyst at foreign exchange broker RoboForex, provides his vision of the possible tendencies in price changes for Bitcoin as well as for other major cryptos.

Price analysis 9/14: BTC, ETH, XRP, BNB, DOT, LINK, BCH, CRO, LTC, BSV

Bitcoin and several altcoins are trying to break out of their respective overhead resistance levels in order to restore bullish momentum. Most retail traders find it difficult to go against the herd and buy when the market is down. They generally wait for the price to recover and for improvements in sentiment before jumping in. By doing this, retail traders typically miss the larger part of relief rallies and pocket a smaller profit. On the other hand, professional investors capitalize on sharp corrective moves by purchasing if they believe that…

It’s Make or Break for Ethereum Bulls as ETH Nears Critical Resistance

Ethereum is flashing some signs of strength today as it inches higher while caught within a short-term consolidation phase. This consolidation trend came about after the cryptocurrency rallied to highs of $380 before facing some heightened selling pressure that caused its price to retrace back down towards $360. It is now trading squarely between these two levels, with buyers and sellers largely reaching an impasse as they both attempt to gain control over the cryptocurrency’s near-term outlook. This sideways trading bout has come about, in part, due to that seen…

Price analysis 9/11: BTC, ETH, XRP, LINK, BCH, DOT, BNB, LTC, CRO, BSV

Although Bitcoin price is range-bound, a few altcoins have started a relief rally which could push them above key resistance levels. The President of the European Central Bank (ECB) Christine Lagarde said that the coronavirus pandemic has acted as a catalyst in boosting the adoption of digital payments in the European Union. Lagarde expects the majority of the consumers to continue using digital services even in the future. In order to support the digitalization, the ECB has formed a task force, which is “exploring the benefits, risks and operational challenges”…

US Treasury blacklisted a non-existent ETH address in connection with alleged Russian election interference

Earlier today, the U.S. Department of the Treasury updated its Specially Designated Nationals List, adding several individuals and a number of cryptocurrency addresses. One of the individuals added was Artem Mikhaylovich Lifshits — a Russian national, accused of interfering in the U.S. elections.  In addition to disclosing his personal information, the site lists a number of cryptocurrency addresses that he allegedly controls. One of the Ethereum addresses, found at 0xa7e5d5a720f06526557c513402f2e6b5fa20b00, does not seem to exist, however. Source: U.S. Department of the Treasury. There was likely a mixup somewhere in the chain of command and…

Crypto Price Analysis September 9: BTC, ETH, LTC, BCH, EOS

Cryptocurrencies have gone in descending corrections again. Dmitriy Gurkovskiy, a senior analyst at foreign exchange broker RoboForex, provides his vision of the possible tendencies in price changes for Bitcoin as well as for other major cryptos. However, even now, on the Bitcoin and Ethereum D1 charts, ascending patterns confirming a leap upwards are forming; note that those are the same patterns. However, there is room for another decline before the patterns are complete. Hence, the market may slump even deeper down before reversing upwards. On W1s of the Bitcoin and Ethereum,…

Price analysis 9/7: BTC, ETH, XRP, LINK, BCH, DOT, BSV, BNB, LTC, CRO

Bitcoin and altcoins could consolidate in a tight range for a few days before making the next decisive move. Corrections are healthy for the strength of an uptrend because they shake out the excess exuberance and provide an opportunity to the traders who missed the bus earlier to make an entry at lower levels. About 68 crypto investors did the same thing when they used the recent dip to purchase anywhere between 1,000–10,000 Ether (ETH).  Buying against the prevailing short-term negative sentiment during a correction is not an easy task…

Top 5 Cryptocurrencies to Watch This Week: BTC, ETH, LINK, NEO, XEM

A short-term bottom for Bitcoin and altcoins may be confirmed if the bulls do not allow the recent lows to be broken during the next fall. The U.S. stock markets, gold, crude oil, and crypto markets have all corrected in the past week, which shows that traders booked profits in most asset classes. The total crypto market capitalization corrected from a high of above $394 billion to a low of about $313 billion, which is roughly a 20% correction. This decline also led to a sharp fall in Bitcoin (BTC)…

Price analysis 9/4: BTC, ETH, XRP, LINK, BCH, DOT, LTC, CRO, BNB, BSV

A dead cat bounce from Bitcoin and altcoins’ critical support levels may attract further selling that could result in lower levels over the next few days. The Nasdaq, S&P500 and Dow all corrected sharply on Sep. 3 and opened today with additional downside, suggesting that traders are rushing to the exit. Bitcoin (BTC) and several other major altcoins have also witnessed a strong bout of profit booking that has pulled down the total crypto market capitalization from $394 billion on Sep. 2 to about $339 billion today. Even gold, which…
