Could Stellar Lumens be a Challenger to Bitcoin for International Payments? / Currencies / BlockChain

By: Boris_Dzhingarov

Bitcoin has clearly cemented its position at the top of the cryptocurrency pecking order.

The last few years have seen its status grow immensely, to the point where many people (wrongly) see cryptocurrency and Bitcoin as inseparable.

In the last year or so, Bitcoin’s price has skyrocketed and many new investors have benefitted hugely. If you’d bought a single Bitcoin at the start of 2017, you’d now be about $7000 better off.

Bitcoin as Poison / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Mike_McAra

The views on Bitcoin among various investors are quite polarized. The whole spectrum includes both people directly owning the cryptocurrency and those who seem to hate it. We have read analyses suggesting that a surprising percentage of hedge fund managers own digital coins. At the same time, Warren Buffett's investment chief, Charlie Munger, called Bitcoin “noxious poison.” Do such words mean that Bitcoin is doomed? In an article on the Guardian website, we read:

Bitcoin is heading towards $10,000 again, despite comments from the US billionaire Charles Munger who described the digital currency as “noxious poison”.

(…)

Speaking at the annual meeting of the US publishing firm Daily Journal, which he chairs, in Los Angeles on Wednesday, Munger said: “I never considered for one second having anything to do with it. I detested it the moment it was raised. It’s just disgusting. Bitcoin is noxious poison.”

U.S. Dollar Bull and Bear Markets / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Arkadiusz_Sieron

The idea of endlessly repeated cycles is a very old one. This is how the ancients perceived time: not as linear sequence of events, but as replaying patterns of dark and golden ages. Although the Judeo-Christian culture changed the way we view time, we like to see the market as an area of constant struggle between bulls and bears, and the resulting upward and downward trends.

Since the end of the Bretton Woods system back in the early 1970s, the U.S. dollar has also moved in trends and cycles. Due to data availability, the chart below shows the trade weighted index of the greenback against the currencies of America’s major trading partners from 1973 until January 2018, with bull and bear markets marked with green and red arrows.

Bitcoin and Crypto Currencies Steady Within Range / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: New_Forex_Trends

In the early parts of 2018, we have already seen a strong injection of volatility in the financial arena as a whole. The VIX volatility index has risen to levels that we have not seen in a very long time, and this is starting to push many new investors out of the stock market space.  The clearest alternative at this stage still appears to be the crypto currencies, as they have already been shown to benefit a great deal more from these types of situations.

Most of the analysis tends to pin itself on the trends that are seen in BTC, which has fallen off sharply over the last few weeks.  After hitting highs near 20,000 Bitcoin has reversed and erased a large amount of stakeholder value in the process.   But this has not eroded market interest, as the crypto space is still one of the biggest volume trading gainers of the last year.

US Stock Markets & Cryptos Crashing… Is This The Big One? / Currencies / BlockChain

By: Jeff_Berwick

After the 666 point drop on the 33rd day of the year on Friday, which I said likely was a signal that things were going into play, the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) lost as much as 1,597 points by mid-afternoon on Monday.

The Dow ended up closing down 1,175 points, or 4.6% which was the largest single-day decline for the blue-chip index on a points basis in history.

“Strong Dollar,” “Weak Dollar,” What About a Gold-Backed Dollar? / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Antonius_Aquinas

The recent hullabaloo among President Trump’s top monetary officials about the Administration’s “dollar policy” is just the start of what will likely be the first of many contradictory pronoucements and reversals which will take place in the coming months/years as the world’s reserve currency continues to be compromised.  So far, the Greenback has had its worst start since 1987, the year of a major stock market reset.

The brief firestorm was set off by Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin who said in response to the dollar’s recent slide, “Obviously, a weaker dollar is good for us, it’s good because it has to do with trade and opportunities.”*  Mnuchin backtracked a bit as international financial leaders criticized the apparent shift in policy while Administration officials sought to clarify the Secretary’s remarks.  President Trump weighted in on the matter saying, “Ultimately, I want to see a strong dollar” and added that Mnuchin’s comments were “taken out of context.”

Bitcoin Crypto Currencies Crash 2018, Are We Near the Bottom? / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Bitcoin's $20,000 bubble mania peak of Mid December that valued the crypto currency at $320 billion has long since been left in the dust as Bitcoin has crashed well below $10,000, wiping out $170 billion of the value of participants holdings. All whilst the crypto coin gamblers obsessed by all things block chain have largely remained in a state of denial, focused on bitcoin soaring to over $50,000 despite its real inverse trend trajectory as tends to happen at the end of market manias.

And so it has been the case since I published my opening Bitcoin forecast of the year over a month ago when the crypto was trading at USD 14,000, warning that the Bitcoin price was likely to continue crashing towards $5,000, a forecast that was met with denial from many in the bitcoin community.

Dow Falls 666 Points As Cryptocurrencies Crash And Krugman Emerges From His Van / Currencies / BlockChain

By: Jeff_Berwick

On Friday, the Dow Jones fell 665.75 points. Or, if you round it, 666 points. Also known to many as the “mark of the beast”. It was also the sixth worst point drop in US stock market history.

This also happened on the 33rd day of the year. 33 is the most important number in Freemasonry.

This is noteworthy because it is the first serious drop in the US stock markets on a weekly basis in two years.

But are the numbers 666 and 33 just a coincidence?

US Dollar Shocker Plus Gold’s Mutiny Equals Epic Opportunity / Currencies / US Dollar

By: P_Radomski_CFA

In yesterday’s alert, we wrote that the situation could change quickly and that in such a case, we would send another alert. Six minutes after yesterday’s opening bell, we already posted the second alert. And for a very good reason. The USD Index took a deep dive and metals were not even close to reacting in a normal way. They were actually a bit lower. We know an extremely bearish signal when we see one and that was definitely the most bearish development for the PMs that we’ve seen this year.

Let’s take a look at what happened. This time we’ll start with the short-term USD Index chart (charts courtesy of http://stockcharts.com) as we want to show you the action of yesterday’s session.

Bitcoin In a Bearish Place / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Arkadiusz_Sieron

We’re hearing a lot about Bitcoin these days. The stories range from fortunes made on the currency to the idea that this is the biggest bubble in history. What we’re not seeing much of are analyses of the Bitcoin market, and even less so of Bitcoin users. Now, in an article on the Fortune website, we read:

Nearly 60 percent of Americans have heard or read about the world’s largest cryptocurrency, according to a joint SurveyMonkey and Global Blockchain Business Council poll of more than 5,700 adults conducted in January. But only 5 percent of people actually own the digital coin.

"Wild" doesn't begin to describe Bitcoin's price action.

Less than 12 months ago, it traded as low as $1,200. By early December, it hit a high of $19,891 – and on the CBOE, Bitcoin futures topped $20,000.

By: Sol_Palha

For greed all nature is too little.Seneca

Whenever the masses fully embrace a market, trouble is usually close at hand, and that's what occurred with bitcoin; the masses were completely enamoured with Bitcoin. The masses were euphoric and were expecting bitcoin to soar to the next galaxy. Wild targets of $100,000 were being issued that sounded more like the ravings of a lunatic than of an expert. In an article published on the 4th of December 2017 we made the following comments:
