Alts Giving a Modest Bounce But Volume Lacks

Well it is nice to see a little green out of the alts the past 48 hours, but volume is lacking so it may just be sellers tacking a break as opposed to buyers coming in.

Taking a look at some bigger alts…

Looking at LTC you see volume is lighter than usual and a little bounce should not be of surprise as price had sold off 5 straight days.

I do like that this bounce we create a higher low from that bottom around 80.  Either way, nothing too exciting going on.

Ethereum range bound

Ethereum has been bouncing around  between 200 and 230 roughly for a little while now.  An uptick after touching 200 yesterday is also not much of a surprise, volume is also very light on this up day.

Action is muted

At this point I’m waiting for the alts to do something, the market is rather quiet otherwise.

The Are Slowly Coming, In Groups Of Herds

The new report from digital asset management company Coinshares points to the increasing dominance of institutional investors in Bitcoin. At the same time, retail investment in the sector is dwindling. This could have lasting effects on the way Bitcoin’s price behaves in the future.

According to Coinshares, there is a fundamental difference between the price rise of 2017 and the bull market of 2019. They noted that four factors were responsible for the 2017 Bitcoin price frenzy- a spike in Google searches for ‘Bitcoin’, media attention, rise in a number of tweets related to Bitcoin and the corresponding rally in altcoins. This time, none of these factors are visible in the market.


I’m still remember my 2nd post ever on Steemit,

Wall Street Secrets Revealed #1 – The Hedge Funds Are Coming To Crypto

I talked about the launch of Bitcoin Futures on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange in December 2017 and how Retail Investors chase price and buy high and sell low, while the Professionals buy low and sell high. The Hedge Funds have purposely sold Bitcoin futures to get in a better price.

I also talked about the Retail Investors are throwing in the towel after seeing a more than 50% correction in the Bitcoin price to the buyers, the Hedge Funds, who are loading up and buying from the Retail Investors. But to fill all their buy orders, as the sell orders dry up, price must go down to the next stack of sell orders. We are approaching what I believe will be the bottom of bitcoin at $6000.


I also still remember my 11th post ever on Steemit, as it was confirmation that supply and demand works in the Crypto space as well,

Crypto Analysis Report 2-16-18 Bitcoin…Sellers Were Waiting At $10000

Two trillion dollars are on Wall Street, waiting for the pipelines from Wall Street to the Crypto Space to be fully developed. When we talk about Bitcoin hitting $100k even $200k, will it’s going to be the Smart Money’s push into Cryptos that gets price there. Buckle your seat belts, it’s going to be one hell of a ride over the next 5-10 years.
