Bitcoin bounced back from 4945.54, but not out of the woods yet

April 17, 2019 7:09 pm Published by Leave your thoughts

In my previous and somewhat overly dramatic post I saw Bitcoin tumble down and through from $5100. If anything, I hope you closed your buys back then. It seems that for the time being the low of $4945,54 is holding. But we’re not out of the woods yet. The mini flash-crash may have scared a few newbies away, but I’m sure there will be an even stronger downward move in the near future. Why do I think that? Well for starters, everyone’s way too confident about Bitcoin going to the moon. This is a good indicator that something’s brewing. Google’s... View Article

Abandon ship! Bitcoin is going down.

April 9, 2019 7:44 pm Published by Leave your thoughts

If you’re a day trader you might want to tread carefully the next couple of days. That’s because Bitcoin has once again been moving sideways. Not only that, but the last swing was lower than the previous which just barely managed to touch the resistance formed on April the 3rd. Coupled by the fact that both the Relative Strength Index and Stochastics on the daily are in the extreme to insane overbought range, we’re bound to see some type of retracement soon enough. In the next couple of days we will most likely see the retracement towards $5100 and if... View Article

Bitcoin gains 1.36% within 1 hour after bullish news from Glenn Hutchins

May 3, 2016 11:32 am Published by Leave your thoughts

Bitcoin gained 1.36% earlier today rising from $442 to $448 in just one hour right after Glenn Hutchins, a Federal Reserve Bank of New York board member and investor, came forth with bullish news about Bitcoin and the BlockChain technology. In his speech he drew a bold parallel between Bitcoin and the Internet and, among other things, mentioned that he has bought Bitcoin himself and is currently investing in various Bitcoin companies. We didn’t reach $500… yet In the last weeks of April there was a lot of fuss on Bitcointalk about the possibility of the price reaching a whopping $500 USD mark on or before... View Article

Bitcoin just flash crashed -10.93% and then recovered again… twice in 3 hours

April 16, 2016 11:44 pm Published by 1 Comment

Something strange just happened to the price of Bitcoin where it rapidly fell from $430 to $383 in just an hour and then recovered again only to go on round two just an hour of standing relatively still. At least that’s what the Bitstamp charts are saying. Have a look: What’s happening on Bitstamp? Well, something had to cause this and I have to admit I jumped a little when I saw this just now, but it appears it only happened on Bitstamp as Bitfinex, Kraken, CoinBase and BTC-E seem to be completely oblivious about it. Still, knowing that there are a lot... View Article

Is 420 the new floor for Bitcoin?

February 19, 2016 10:33 am Published by Leave your thoughts

Bitcoin sure likes to blaze it or so it would seem. The price is back around the 420 area where it reached in November 2015. Ever since the Mike Hearn news, Bitcoin has been struggling to break the $400 resistance, but it finally managed to do so just in time for Valentine’s day and while most speculators on BitcoinTalk tend to agree that this is the new floor for the crypto, I’m a little worried about the head and shoulders pattern that’s forming on the hourly charts. Head and shoulders on 1H As I’ve stated before I’m a Bitcoin permabull and... View Article

Bitcoin slowly recovering after Mike Hearn news in January

February 14, 2016 11:44 am Published by 1 Comment

In the first weeks of January 2016 a leading Bitcoin developer Mike Hearn announced to the world that Bitcoin is dead and broken. In his article he talks about how the community has failed and how the Blockchain technology can’t reliably handle too many transactions at once. He also mentions that the market is controlled by Chinese miners and just two miners control more than half of the entire hash power. Naturally this announcement caused a network wide panic as people were worried Bitcoin is done for good this time. Bitcoin’s death greatly exaggerated After the usual media shitstorm and...

Bitcoin breaks the 400 resistance as identity of its founders is revealed

December 9, 2015 3:35 pm Published by Leave your thoughts

Bitcoin just broke the 400 usd barrier shortly after rumors about the revealed identity of the Bitcoin protocol founder were released on the internet. According to Wired and Gizmodo, the mysterious man behind Bitcoin, Satoshi Nakamoto, is in fact an Australian  entrepreneur Craig S Wright. Bitcoin stable around 420 The sudden $16,50 USD jump in Bitcoin price quickly found stability around the 420 USD per coin area today where it has been hovering for pretty much the entire day showing signs of further upward momentum. Is Craig S Wright really Satoshi? The evidence provided so far can’t be used to... View Article

Bitcoin just tested the $400 USD area again

December 7, 2015 4:15 pm Published by Leave your thoughts

Ever since my last post about Bitcoin more than two weeks ago, I have been keeping a close eye on the price movement and the news as well. Judging from the chart alone, it’s highly possible that Bitcoin will soon break the $400 resistance level, because it has tested it twice already in the last two days and today’s hourly candle closed a lot closer to this level than the previous. The technical analysis is definitely showing an increasing pressure from the bulls, but that’s not all! The news have been very favorable as well. Visa is Testing Remittances on... View Article

Is Bitcoin getting ready for another bullish rally?

November 16, 2015 10:22 pm Published by 1 Comment

After almost two weeks of sideways movement we have once again started to see “strange” movement on the BTC/USD pair. A massive dump yesterday, then a couple of hours of sideways movement followed by a massive bullish candle almost exactly the same size as the dump indicates that something is indeed brewing in the Bitcoin world. The recent Bitcoin rally that peaked around $520 USD per Bitcoin on November the 4th, may have just been a prequel for what’s coming. Japan as the next pump The previous pump was initially started by the Chinese investors when their economy ran into... View Article

What is BitGold and why should you care?

BitGold is a new online payment processor, sort of like PayPal, where your funds, transactions and savings are backed by physical gold instead of being just a number on the screen. The gold you own is stored in one of more than ten vaults around the world and if you want, you can redeem your physical gold at any time in the form of bullion.
