For traders, the primary motivation when trading is undoubtedly to earn a return on investment. Unnecessarily high transaction fees can, however, deplete trading account balances and erode returns, and so, serious investors will always look to minimize extra costs.
Some markets move up, blind to bad news and unstoppable in their ascension. We have seen that throughout the last few years, but it has become more pronounced in the past couple of months. Something has changed and the momentum that characterised BTC throughout October and November seems to have cooled down.
Yesterday was a very interesting session for the crypto space. No, we did not breach new highs, test support levels or move dramatically one way or the other. We did have a scare and a bounce up. While traditional markets turned risk-off (S&P down 1%, Nasdaq down 2%, gold down 1.7%), one could’ve assumed some contagion to affect cryptocurrencies.
Hear from our COO of Financial Services Neil Sheppard at the AIMA APAC Webinar, discussing the future evolution of the DigitalAsset Industry.
This year, Christmas day is on a Friday, which also happens to be the day a large amount of Bitcoin futures and options will expire. As we know, Bitcoin never sleeps and doesn't do public holidays. The December 25th expiry will likely be met with an unusually thin day of liquidity, which in turn could bring some Bitcoin sized volatility to Santa's stocking filler.

Bitcoin is beginning to form a new trading range at these elevated levels. As much as a rip-roaring rally is fun, a little time to acclimatize is a good thing. There would be no harm done if Bitcoin decided to track between $17,000 and $19,000 for a week or two — in fact, it would build a nice base for the next bout of price appreciation to blast off from.

Whether it’s because of Thanksgiving or just the inability to push through higher levels, traditional markets have been trading mostly muted. Comparatively, crypto markets seem to now be on investors' radar and experience much more activity. After a two-month-long rally and probably a lot of complacency, the bout of volatility yesterday shook many, triggering massive liquidations. Any opportunistic buyer would’ve been happy to pick up some coins.
The second-largest cryptocurrency by market cap, Ethereum, has had the most significant update in its 5-year history. A major milestone has been achieved on the path to ‘Ethereum 2.0’, also known as ‘Eth2’, which represents a pivotal development in the evolution of the Ethereum blockchain.
While traditional markets traded muted most of yesterday, crypto markets are swinging wildly. Investors are torn between the euphoria of an incessant rally, the unbearably close 20K mark but, also, the risk of waiting too long before taking profit and the volatility that historically plagues Bitcoin rallies -and definitely altcoin rallies.
The party-poppers are on hold until the release of this evening’s FOMC minutes from the Fed’s November policy meeting. We all know the drill by now, another stimulus = another Bitcoin rally. But, is there a real risk that the Fed hints they have done enough? If the US dollar rallies hard post the release of the Fed’s thoughts, Bitcoin could have missed a great opportunity to register a new all-time high.
Last week, Bloomberg publicized Cornerstone Macro LLC’s evaluation that investors that are ‘looking to counter the wild volatility of the stock market, can now consider the stabilizing influence of cryptocurrencies’. Here’s our thoughts on the significance of this trend and what lies ahead
The best thing about hodling is ignoring price swings, with the resolute belief that Bitcoin is one of the answers to a financial system that is built on a pile of debt. Global debt stands at $272T, with another $5T expected to be added to the pile by the end of the year.
