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.

Buffett Backflips: ALL IN CRYPTO!

Warren buffett has for years talked down on Crypto, especially #Bitcoin.

However, Buffett's investment conglomerate - Berkshire Hathaway - has invested $600 million across two large Fintech firms ($300m each). On of the investments is in Indian firm, Paytm (the largest mobile-payments service in India).

The other investment was made in Brazillian StoneCo, Brazil's largest brokerage firm. Interestingly, the firm recently announced that it will launch Bitcoin and Ethereum exchanges in Brazil.

Both firms invested in are heavily involved in Blockchain technology and R&D. Both have investments in Bitcoin and other Cryptocurrencies. Both go against everything Warren Buffett once claimed about Crypto.

It is obvious that he has had a change of heart. However, many speculators suggest it was a game the entire time; play bearish on Crypto and Bitcoin whilst accumulate and build partnerships in the background.

Bullish news. Be happy.

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.

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.

Strong Institutional Investment for Bitcoin

In 2017, financial services company, Morgan Stanley, had a bearish outlook on Cryptocurrency and Bitcoin as a whole. However, for their 2018 market analysis, they are bullish for the 2018 year, going into 2019, and beyond.

Why the complete change of pace? It could be that Morgan Stanley have privately invested over $400million into Bitcoin and wider Alt-Coin projects, or the fact that they are planning on releasing a derivatives project directly to their Client base. Or both.

It’s important to note that the bank is not actually planning to trade Bitcoin or cryptocurrencies directly but rather to offer Bitcoin swap trading tied to futures contracts. Earlier this year, CEO James Gorman said that a trading desk specializing in derivatives tied to digital assets could be a potential service offered to clients.

Futures are contracts in which the buyer has agreed to purchase an asset at an agreed time and price in the future. The same arrangement stands for the party selling the asset as well. These contracts note both the quality and quantity of the assets that are being traded, standardized, and either require physical delivery of the asset being traded or are settled in cash.

According to Bloomberg, the bank already has the measures in place to offer Bitcoin swap trading, however, it will not officially launch any initiative without first ascertaining the level of institutional client demand and completing a thorough internal approval process.

The takeaway here is that there is very strong Institutional interest in the Crypto space and that is growing at rapid rates, daily. A bullish return is on the horizon.
