Yesterday’s resistance broken
Bitcoin has succeeded in breaking through a pretty solid resistance level of 234.394 setting our next target as high as 237.320 USD per Bitcoin.
New York Stock Exchange Influence
The news from a few days ago where the NYSE announced that they will begin monitoring the price of Bitcoin, has greatly influenced the current price increase. The reason is simple enough: traders believe that if NYSE is monitoring the price of Bitcoin, it has to be worth investing in. This has already resulted in the overall increase of buyers versus sellers because new investors, who have previously stayed away from Bitcoin, are now jumping in just to get a piece of the pie.
We can’t be sure how exactly all this plays out, however, for the time being it’s very likely that we are going to see some serious bullish movement for BTC/USD. Just imagine all of the “old school” traders who used to stay away from Bitcoin now beginning to question their beliefs. It’s definitely going to be one hell of a ride we have ahead of us in this summer ;)
Bitcoin just took a huge leap towards becoming a more legitimate and trustworthy crypto currency. Yesterday, on May 19th, The New York Stock Exchange announced that they will begin monitoring the Bitcoin price against the US dollar just like any other foreign currency pair.
“Bitcoin values are quickly becoming a data point that our customers want to follow as they consider transacting, trading or investing with this emerging asset class”
What this means for us?
It’s very likely that the BTC/USD pair will soon skyrocket because that has always happened with high impact news like this one in the past. We have already witnessed a solid bullish candle close just after the news was published to the world.
The only thing to look out for at this time is the resistance level 234.394. Until this is broken we can’t really be sure where the price decides to go.
First licensed Bitcoin exchange opening
The first licensed U.S based Bitcoin exchange will be opening later today which is great news for all the bulls out there because this move is likely going to bring back a lot of lost trust for the crypto currency, Bitcoin.
While I am very surprised to see a move like that from the U.S I am happy it has finally been done. There are serious money involved and since it’s now licensed and approved in many states, the chances of someone running away with your coins has decreased a lot- therefore more people are going to trust the exchanger with their coins and because they take no fees for the first two months we can expect a buying marathon to take place very soon.
All the way up
Just yesterday on the 26th the price per Bitcoin jumped all the way to $303,303 USD which is the highest point yet in our newly forming upward trend. From there the price correction occurred all the way down to $241,094, but we’ve confirmed with the two new bullish candles that this is likely going to be the end of it. We can be fairly confident that the resistance level of $271,372 is going to be breached later today or some time tomorrow.
The beautiful upward trend that is forming on my charts along with the fact that today Coinbase is going to make history it’s quite safe to go long in BTC/USD. Just promise me you will make up your own mind before you blindly take my advice, that’s all I need to know.
