Bitcoin Delivers Sunday Surprise

Hello traders everywhere. The CME Bitcoin real-time index dropped over 10% on Sunday giving many cryptocurrency traders a Sunday surprise. The index traded as low as $6,643.58 before finally closing the day at $6,781.18. It's the first time since early April that Bitcoin has traded below the $7,000 level. However, it shouldn't come as a surprise after it's been trapped in a tight trading range between $7,000 and $7,800 since about mid-May.

Media reports will have you believe that the price drop is due to a hack on the South Korean exchange Coinrail, which was revealed Sunday, and renewed concerns regarding security at cryptocurrency exchanges. However, a significant move was expected anyway, as an extended period of consolidation or low volatility is often followed by a sharp move on either side and prices started falling Saturday, so the theft of ERC-20 tokens at a minor exchange seems an unlikely cause.

  1. Poor bastards who mortgaged their house and family to buy at the all time high back in December, trusting the cheerleader who claimed it was about to go through the stratosphere. Classic ponzi...
