FREE Bitcoin Call

We don’t normally do this, as this kind of call is reserved for our PremiumProgram members, but to celebrate 2019 we are giving this one away for free - early.

We are bullish on Bitcoin with a target around 4100-4200. You should have anywhere between 4.7% and 5.7% profit within 6 hours of this playing out, then watch it run. Set stop losses accordingly. S.L. marked with red line and dashed arrow. This will play out from the 6th to 7th of January 2019 - so you have PLENTY of time to get ready. Happy profiting!

For reference: remember, this is Crypto. In traditional stocks, 4-5% profit is made over a year, not a few hours. Overall, the market is still bearish, so this kind of profit is solid.

NOTE: On the 7th of January 2019 (Australian time) will be a decider for Bitcoin. We could fall or keep running, but things are getting tight, so take profit and be ready.

Our PremiumProgram members already have a game-plan and are good to go.

If you want to stay ahead of the market and continue to profit no matter what, join Premium today. We provide you with what to buy, when to sell, and what to hold + technical and fundamental analysis, 24/7.

Happy 2019 everyone

2018 Summary & 2019, onwards!

2018: One of the biggest consolidations of Bitcoin in history. We dropped from approximately $20,000 per Bitcoin to as low as $2,800 (depending on which exchange you are looking at).

Guess what: 2019 might not be friendly, either. Sorry guys, but Bitcoin could fall as low as $800 USD per coin in 2019. If that happens, LOAD UP and set your positions. We have strong supports but once we break the $2,800 limit, we fall to $2,000 and then if that level breaks, the next support is $1,200. If that breaks, $800 will arrive shortly.

This is not a bad thing. It is true capitulation.

Right now we have a relief rally and we are on track to hitting $4,500.00 USD per Bitcoin in this relief rally.

What to know when to cash out, what to buy, what to hold, what to sell? Join our PremiumProgram today to set yourselves up and make the most profit in 2019.

2019 will be all about picking the RIGHT projects and the BEST projects to make bigger profits, come the next bull-run. Be sure you know exactly what you are doing. Our PremiumProgram members have made an average profit of 9% per week throughout all of 2018 (from February 2018). Compound that by 48 weeks, that means (on average) our users are 432% up since 1 Feb 2018. Not bad, considering the majority of 2018 has been a bearish market.

We show you the best way to balance a portfolio and trade. It is up to you to take action and make a difference.

For how, Happy New Year, guys

Morgan Stanley & Crypto: We told you so

We hate saying I told you so, but…

  • Morgan Stanley, one of the world’s largest investment banks, has just poached Credit Suisse’s resident “bitcoin expert” to head the former’s digital assets unit.

  • Morgan Stanley is reportedly preparing to offer bitcoin swap trading for clients, joining other top banks in a sector-wide effort to explore digital currencies.

  • Goldman Sachs clarified last week that the bank is working on a type of derivative for bitcoin called non-deliverable forwards due to client demand.

We published an article on July 27, 2017, covering our recent interactions with Morgan Stanley contacts. We presented a bullish case after our discussions with Morgan Stanley. Most of those cases have turned out to be true (bar the ETF comment: it doesn’t look like an ETF for Bitcoin will come from Morgan Stanley in 2018).

Now, Morgan Stanley have consistently made more and more comment on Bitcoin, Blockchain and Crypto (especially from Q3 2018).

The purpose of sharing this post this morning is two fold. One: we want to remind everyone that bullish news presented at an early time (i.e. as per our original post in July 2017) should never be forgotten. Always keep your finger on fundamentals, as fundamentals are what will drive this market long term. Two: Sometimes things play out as expected (i.e. the majority of our calls back in July 2017) and sometimes they don't. Just because we post something, or anyone else posts something, always have a plan B in case some or all doesn't eventuate as expected. We are all human and the Crypto market is INEFFICIENT (An inefficient market, according to efficient market theory, is one in which an asset's market prices do not always accurately reflect its true value).

Interesting side-note: Morgan Stanley veterans aren’t immune to the lure of Crypto. Zoe Cruz, a former executive, is on the board of Ripple. The bank’s former CEO, John Mack, took an interest in Omega One. Morgan Stanley are just one fine example of established corporations who are going full-speed into Cryptocurrency and Blockchain.

Amazon, Walmart - Accepting of Crypto!

  • AWS CEO Andy Jassy unveiled two new blockchain products at the re:Invent conference in Las Vegas on Wednesday.

  • The company will offer Amazon Quantum Ledger Database and Amazon Managed Blockchain for developers using its cloud-computing services.

  • Amazon is introducing the services despite an almost 70 percent plunge this year in the price of bitcoin.

Amazon's new product will support two popular existing blockchain platforms — Ethereum and Hyperledger Fabric. Ethereum is a popular open-source building platform for developers, linked to the cryptocurrency ether, while corporate giants including IBM are currently building projects on Hyperledger.

In addition to the managed blockchain product, AWS announced Amazon Quantum Ledger Database, or QLDB, where customers can replicate a copy of their blockchain network activity.

Amazon already leverages Ethereum on its cloud network, and in May announced a partnership with start-up Kaleido to make it easier for customers to put their services on blockchain. Microsoft offers customers "blockchain as a service" on its Azure cloud.

On the other side of the fence, Walmart is also fully invested in Blockchain. Walmart recently became one of the first retailers to explain how it will be using the technology. The company said it would require lettuce suppliers to upload data about their foods to blockchain within a year.

TRADE TIP: What to watch?

Here is a free trading tip, which we constantly remind our Premium Program members of, like clockwork: MARKET CAPS. Why?

The market cap essentially represents the amount of demand for the #crypto. More people buying, bidding the price higher, leads to a higher market cap. You watch the market cap to determine how the market should react in the near future. You watch the volume, the action.

Many traders like to watch the Bitcoin market cap. We do it differently, we tell our Premium members to always have open the Bitcoin Market Cap AND the Alt Coin Market Cap (see links below). Why? Well, you need to see how both interact with eachother to best determine where the money is flowing. If you see BTC market cap declining, where is that money going? Check the Alt-Coin market cap. Always have both open.

https://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/bitcoin/

https://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/altcoin-alt/

It’s a small but very handy tip. Always remember to keep your eyes on how the wider (marco) market moves. Understanding technical analysis (TA) is imperative.

Poloniex Launches Institutional Trading Services + Market Update

Crypto exchange Poloniex has announced the opening of trading services for institutional clients.

The company, which was acquired by payments firm Circle earlier this year, said Tuesday that it will begin offering institutional accounts, with support for different crypto trading pairs and API interfaces. The exchange will also provide no-fee transactions for all bitcoin/USD Coin trades in December.

As part of its new accounts, Circle is offering over-the-counter trading through Circle Trade, services through Poloniex and trading pairs with the USDC stablecoin, according to a registration page. Firms looking to participate in OTC trading must issue a minimum order size of $250,000.

In its announcement, Circle explained that it would offer institutional clients higher withdrawal limits, as well as “professional customer support.”

“Our highly trained team will guide each institutional customer through the onboarding process, coordinate issue resolution across multiple teams and support ongoing trading activities,” the firm explained

Circle and Poloniex join industry exchanges like Coinbase in offering services specifically for institutional traders. The latter exchange, which also offers USDC trading pairs, began rolling out custody services for its institutional clients in May.

More recently, Coinbase has also begun trialing an OTC trading desk, though the platform will not go live until early next year.

MARKET UPDATE - A Summary

Mainstream Media Says Bitcoin Is Dead: Is It The Time To Buy? The media have incorrectly described Bitcoin’s recent plunge as a “dead” end for the cryptocurrency. However, it is not what it seems, and this may just be the best opportunity to buy low.

G20: Crypto Taxation System to Be Developed Soon. G20 member nations plan to release a system that makes it easier for cryptocurrencies to be aligned with the global tax system.

BTC Health Check

Bitcoin has had a rough patch over the past month, falling so hard that it is (almost) a record fall for BTC. On the surface, this crash is worse then the 2013/14 historic Bitcoin and Crypto market fall. Looking at the market cap, we are actually (at time of writing) about 6% lower then that historic collapse.

  • Bitcoin mining difficulty fell by 15%, the sharpest decline since 2011.

  • The market cap is around $128 billion.

  • Trading volume is stable at $14 billion.

  • Bitcoin Dominance currently at 53.9%.

So what’s next?

Our LupoToro analysts all believe we are near the bottom of this fall. We should see another leg down, before finding support between the 2k and 3k levels. There is a slim chance of 1.9k BTC, however this is less likely. At 3k there is little support, so a fall to 2.5k is a possibility; we may touch on 2k flat before a bounce up.

Short-term, we expect a recovery rally between late December 2018 and January 2019. Good news to regain some profits in you are day-trading!

Medium-term, we expect to be tracking sideways in 2019 with smaller dips and rallies.

A bullrun on the horizon?

Fundamentally, the fundamental analysis does lead us to believe we could bullrun early to mid 2019. Is this likely? Well, before we answer, lets look at the technical analysis (also considering the market cap). TA says not likely, FA says likely. You need to consider both but we prefer to favour TA as that is what traders watch - they watch the charts. You can have all the good news in the world, but if the traders are bearish and trade bearishly, it would take MASSIVE fundamentally good news to break chart trading trends and push up, leading to a bullrun. Is it impossible? No.

Accumulate. Set stop losses. Be wise. Don’t over invest. Be patient. The patient are always rewarded in traditional stocks and this holds true for Crypto.

TRADE WAR: Hodl

US President Donald Trump and his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping have agreed to halt new trade tariffs for 90 days to allow for talks, the US says. Essentially, the massive macro-economic Trade War between the USA and China is currently in HODL phase.

At a post-G20 summit meeting in Buenos Aires, Mr Trump agreed not to boost tariffs on $200bn (£157bn) of Chinese goods from 10% to 25% on 1 January. China will buy a "very substantial" amount of agricultural, industrial and energy products, the US says. Meanwhile, Beijing says the two sides agreed to open up their markets.

BUT….How does this relate to Cryptocurrency?

Without going into boring economic detail, it means that the tension and stress in the wider economic market (between two superpowers - USA and China) are on the back-burner. So, the wider financial markets (traders, speculators, institutional investors) now:

  • Have the GREEN LIGHT to invest, trade and carry on as per normal

  • No current macro-economic risk of two world superpowers fighting with interest rates/inter-country trading and debt

  • Potential bearish scenarios which would play out due to a trade war are not front of mind, as both countries agreed to play this out safely

Essentially, Cryptocurrency Markets and wider traditional stock markets (ASX, Dow Jones, S&P Index, NASDAQ, etc.) are all free to trade without the fear of an inter-country Trade War ruining their day.

We’ve been calling it for months - a very BULLISH return to Crypto is on the near horizon and we will see a bullish return by the end of December 2018; Q1 2019 will be extremely Bullish.
