Bitcoin: Make It Or Break It

One of our readers requested the update on cryptos, including Ethereum, this week. Here we go.

The leading coin has taught us excellent lessons recently. I shared with you a bullish setup for Bitcoin a month ago. In the following update, I recommended to move the stop loss higher from $50k to $55k area to cut the risk after the breakout and increase the risk/reward ratio to sound 2.7.

The price indeed broke above the confirmation level of $61782 and quickly reached the new all-time high in the $65k area, but then it failed to advance.

We have the first lesson here from the RSI. As we can see on the sub-chart, the indicator did not confirm the new all-time high as it established a lower peak instead. This built the Bearish Divergence then, and the outcome you already know, the price collapsed dramatically. Continue reading "Bitcoin: Make It Or Break It"

Should You Own Cryptocurrency?

The short answer: Yes.

I’ll get to the reasons why it should be a part of just about every investor’s portfolio in just a moment.

I’ll also get into why, if you do take the plunge into crypto, do so gingerly.

But before we get started, take a look at the first three installments in this multi-part series about blockchain and cryptocurrency. We talked about why they’re so important, what they’re all about, and what they really mean to you.

Feel free to take a look at these when you get a sec. But they’re not needed to get a deep understanding into what we’ll talk about today.

So, let’s get to it. Here are just a few reasons to own cryptocurrency... Continue reading "Should You Own Cryptocurrency?"

What The Blockchain And Cryptocurrency Mean To You

So, what does the blockchain and cryptocurrency really mean to you? Well, really everything.

Blockchain technology and cryptocurrency are fundamentally transforming our lives, unlike anything we’ve seen in a long time.

In fact, when you think about that transformation, you’ll put it up there with the other giant shifts in technology. I mean...

The printing press... antibiotics... railroads... steel... automobiles... windows... the internet.

Blockchain and cryptocurrency are next.

Right now, I can think of dozens or even hundreds of ways this transformation will impact you. But if I had to boil it down to two big ones, they would be... Continue reading "What The Blockchain And Cryptocurrency Mean To You"

The Riddle

This riddle could be paraphrased as “It is almost worth the gold reserves of France (World #5), it is what all want now at the price of 2016, you would be eager to have it as a gift last Christmas, it stands at 14 GDPs of Kyrgyz Republic (my motherland)”. Yes, you got it right, it’s a Bitcoin - notorious, attractive and, of course, risky.

At the start of this year, I wrote about Bitcoin and its unrivaled blast-off dynamics compared to conventional assets for the Y2015. Of course, the main reason for this was the effect of the 'start-up.' In other words, if we get something useful and demanded out of 'nothing' or better say virtually it surely will show you the rocket dynamics on the chart.

Digitalization is in a full-scale offensive with the smart things coming more and more in our life. The word 'SMART' at the beginning of something new and technologically advanced from SMARTphones to SMART contracts is now a common thing.

Technology moves at a terrific speed these days and what was at the avant-garde of it a few years ago was Bitcoin; now it could be deemed as traditional or outdated. Today I would like to show you a brand new star of the market, which is called 'Ether.' Continue reading "Which Asset Is A Top Gainer? Silver? Bitcoin? Try again!"
