Bitcoin testing the curve support

Yesterday's price range was pretty small. The price was above the orange area (an important level) and below it.

Bitcoin testing the curve support

Currently, the price makes moves and it has broken below the all-important EMA’s, it has reached the curve support line and the March low level which also should start to work as a support. The Fibonacci golden ratio retracement level at 62 percent will indicate if we get a bigger or a smaller bounce upwards.

If we get a candle close below the mentioned levels, it would be the first sign of the bullish momentum gone. Our next major supports are the round number $6,500 and the strong support area at $6,460.

At the moment, altcoins also take this little hit but nothing remarkable. Watch those levels (curve support, round number, and the blue line as a strong support) and if the price breaks below then definitely stay out and wait for some better opportunities to enter again.

LITECOIN (LTC/USD) Breaks Below The Minor Trendline

Currently, the market takes some hit and so do altcoins.

LITECOIN (LTC/USD) Breaks Below The Minor Trendline

Currently, Litecoin has made a break below the minor trendline which will indicate that the red box below the price around $57 should start to work as a support. If this level doesn’t hold and if BTC drops even more, then we could see a break below the red support area and the price approaching the next support level at $55, and that would be an important level. In this case, the price structure may change. This area is the last HL (higher low) formation area and if it breaks, bad things can happen.

At the moment, BTC is on the very important area and if it gets a bounce upwards, LTC will have a good opportunity to follow this move and the targets will be on the next round number at $60 and the strong resistance at $62. So, watch closely what Bitcoin does.

MONERO (XMR/USD) - It Looks Bad

Monero has a break below the major counter trendline which is not a good sign! On the four-hour chart, it trades below the 200 EMA and it makes pretty ‘heavy’ steps downwards compared to others.

MONERO (XMR/USD) - It Looks Bad

Technically, if Bitcoin makes another leg downwards, XMR would drop like a stone because there are some support levels but nothing significant until the red box at $104.

Basically, we have a breakout from the triangle, break below the EMA's plus Bitcoin making moves downwards, so better stay out from Monero because if it drops, it drops pretty heavily. The market has to make a pretty big turn upwards then we could come back and watch it again but currently, stay away.

Crypto Community Must Unite, Speak With One Voice to Make Movement Successful

    🤷 Opinions

    The past year has brought incredible things but has also revealed weaknesses in the cryptocurrency movement.

Crypto Community Must Unite, Speak With One Voice to Make Movement Successful

For the crypto community, 2017 is marked by both astounding progress and disturbing imbroglio. Bitcoin has broken into the mainstream financial market with the launch of Chicagoan futures products. New investors flocked to exchanges unprepared for mainstream interest, bought up all kinds of coins and excitedly participated in conversations.

The crypto community may have never seen so many new curious members joining since Bitcoin’s inception in 2009. At the same time, the Bitcoin Cash hard fork pitted one part of the community against another, with anxious onlookers stuck in between. Governments are also beginning to watch the surge of investor interest with wariness.

Communication, governance necessary

Everything that happened last year, the good and the bad, should serve as a wakeup call for people that consider themselves part of the crypto community or even those who think they can just hodl some crypto, sit on the sidelines and watch. This is paradoxical considering the trustless nature of Blockchain, since making cryptocurrencies work requires communication, negotiation and ultimately governance. In fact, governance may be most important of all, as the canceled SegWit2x and the four-year scalability debate has shown. Even more ironic is that the crafting of a healthier ICO market may require anarchists to sit down with government officials.

So far, communication and the ability to work together is lacking in the cryptocurrency community. Instead, what we have are mysterious whales doing unknown things in the marketplace and Wild West pump-and-dump Telegram channels. Unifying voices are lonely and quickly drowned out.

While it’s probably wise to constantly look out for one’s own interest and reputation, it’s probably not wise to only look out for oneself. All who remotely care about the intermediate-term prospects of crypto would better serve themselves and others as both a member of a newly rising community and member of a new form of economy.

Community must unite

Bitcoin was born as a rebellion against the existing financial system. The roles of cryptocurrencies and tokens today are less clear. One way or another, as more money pours into coins, government action from different parts of the world is almost sure to follow. What will be the community’s reaction then?

At the end of the day, no one can stand alone.
