Just looking the simple chart provided by Coinmarketcap … Seems we are right now in the border of another decisive moment. There is a Head and Shoulder pattern flying over the crypto market and the recent decrease in volume does not help so much to sustain the growth:
Market has reached an amazing value of 186 Billion recently but now is struggling at the 170 Billion area…if this trend holds longer and the market overpasses the 167 Billion I am afraid we are going to see again a drop to the 145 Billion, a total market cap value previous to this
Sometimes you just need to look at the broader picture. Yes, it would be nice to see recent crypto rally continue, but getting a pullback was pretty obvious once you look at the total crypto market cap chart.
Major Resistance Stops the Rally for Now
Looking at the chart in this post you can see market cap rallied up to that prior support level only to hit it’s head a few times before backing off.
The good news is the rejection wasn’t hard and fast so even if we were to sell off some more I like the price action still.
Market cap failing
“We don’t think you’re going to get back to those $80 levels again, so you’ve got some modest upside here,” Goldman Sachs’ head of commodities research, Jeff Currie, told CNBC this week. “While the macro risk-on environment and the threat of disruptions may drive spot prices even higher, we still expect that prices will decline gradually from this summer as shale and OPEC production increases,” they concluded. “With large spare capacity in OPEC and the Permian basin and a wave of long-cycle projects still expected to come online in 2020, we maintain our $60/bbl forecast for next year.” Goldman
Making higher highs and higher lows along the bear flag on 4hr chart. Next resistance level around 5200 zone. Stoch price divergence, possible turn. Margin short still lacking.

Twitter is on the move this morning holding the $34 and moving into the resistance level of $35-35.50 for it seems like the 1000th time. A small pullback was needed to relieve some pressure but I am looking for the Tweeter bird to break through this level this week.
A strong open is some mega progress and I believe if the market holds in today we may get a good upswing t continue the now bullish trend. The pattern is there, we just need this baby to resolve higher. The longer it stays at the top end of this range,
If the S&P 500 is the
bellweather for the equity markets, JPMorgan Chase (JPM) is the bellweather for
the bank sector. JPMorgan Chase reported earnings on Friday and blew the results
out of the box. JPM earned $2.65 a share for the quarter versus expectations of
$2.35 a share. And revenue of $29.9 billion came in $1.5 billion ahead of
The results were
supported by record revenue and net income. Investors have been concerned that
net interest margins would deteriorate since the US Feds said they would leave
interest rates along, but net interest income grew by 8% year over year.
This weekend I read through the latest World Silver Survey, published by The Silver Institute. For those unfamiliar with these reports, they are published on an annual basis and are very well written. At about 100 pages in length, the document is definitely not a quick read, but you can pick and choose areas of interest, it isn’t necessary to read every table and sub-heading. You can find all the World Silver Surveys (from 1950 to date) at https://www.silverinstitute.org/all-world-silver-surveys/.
For some years it has been noted that Silver is undervalued compared to Gold and is probably the better long-term investment. Indeed it
What matters is that 10 years after an unidentified software engineer created it, this decentralized system for recording sequences of transactions continues to do its job, block after block, with no authority in charge, no user able to alter past transactions, and no person or entity able to shut it down.
The more this goes on, the more it reinforces the powerful vision behind bitcoin: a peer-to-peer, disintermediated system for exchanging value around the world. And in that context, we can also think of bitcoin the cryptocurrency – differentiated from bitcoin the system – as a unique, provably scare digital asset that expresses the overall value in that vast potential.
Bitcoin is valuable because it exists
A point that’s lost on critics like Novak is that the longer bitcoin simply survives – in the face of the $90 billion valuation that stands as a de facto bounty for hackers to try to take it down, compromise its security or corrupt it – the more its overall value is confirmed.
Bitcoin is progressively proving itself to be an unstoppable, digital system of global exchange, one that functions outside of the traditional national government-mandated system of currency and banking. That status is what gives bitcoin its value.
Of course, the global impact of the bitcoin value exchange system, and therefore its worth to humanity, will be significantly enhanced if adoption advances to a much wider scale and it is used frequently in the world’s transactions. And, yes, a great deal of development work is still needed if it is to ever reach that point.
The United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) reportedly required two funds to eliminate the word “blockchain” from their monikers, Bloomberg writes April 12, citing sources familiar with the matter.
The exchange-traded funds (ETFs) of both Amplify and Reality Shares reportedly mentioned blockchain in early filings. Per Bloomberg’s unarmed interlocutors, the two funds were encouraged to change their names at the last minute in 2018.
Despite eliminating the word “blockchain,” the funds’ tickers still refer to the technology. Ampilfy’s funds are traded as BLOK, while the product is described as “transformational data sharing ETF.” Reality Shares are using the title BLCN, depicting its product as “Nasdaq NexGen economy ETF.”
According to the newspaper, the asset called “Learning Coin” will be accessible only within the IMF and World Bank. The coin has no money value and thus is not a real cryptocurrency, the FT underlines.
As the FT has learned, “Learning Coin” was launched in order to better understand the technologies that underlie crypto assets. Its app will serve as a hub where blogs, research, videos and presentations are stored.
“… At 10:00 AM ET (2:00 PM GMT/UTC) Partners and Platinum Partners will have an exclusive opportunity to buy additional EFIN coins.”

We are currently sitting exactly on the support line at 0.43$ and we are in waiting mode I think, waiting to see in which direction the BTC will go. Let’s hope it will be a UP Break Out but no one can be sure of the direction. Let’s see what the market will decide and follow the trend, it is always the safest choice.
