Ethereum jumps 10% amid worries about bitcoin in a wild day for digital currencies

Ethereum jumps 10% amid worries about bitcoin in a wild day for digital currencies

"Ethereum jumps 10% amid worries about bitcoin in a wild day for digital currencies" 

in the news Ethereum jumps 10% amid worries about bitcoin in a wild day for digital currencies? What this all about..... See below. 


Sentiment Trader Digital currency saw ethereum climbed Monday to a near two-month high amid renewed uncertainty about the future of bitcoin.

Ethereum traded about 10 percent higher near $330 Monday afternoon, after earlier rising 15 percent to $347.05, its highest since June 23, according to CoinMarketCap. At its session high, the site's data showed ethereum had gained 70 percent for the month and more than 4,000 percent for the year.

The gains in ethereum could be part of the market's reaction to the increasingly fractured bitcoin community.

Ethereum 7-day performance

Bitcoin traded more than 1 percent lower near $4,055.88, according to CoinDesk, well off a record high of $4,522.13 hit last Thursday. Even with the last few days' decline of about $500, bitcoin remained about 40 percent higher for August and more than quadruple in value for the year.

The decline in price came as digital currency enthusiasts have increasingly focused on the potential of an upgrade proposal called SegWit2x to split bitcoin again in November, just months after its Aug. 1 split into bitcoin and bitcoin cash.

Bitcoin cash traded 15 percent lower near $603, down more than $450 from Saturday's record high of $1,091.97, according to CoinMarketCap. The bitcoin offshoot still held gains of nearly 200 percent from a low of $210 hit on the day of the split Aug. 1.

Meanwhile, investors gained more confidence in a smooth upgrade for ethereum's network, a proposal called "Metropolis" expected in the next several weeks that should improve transaction privacy and efficiency.

Other factors contributing to ethereum's gains Monday included steady demand from South Korean investors and news that London-based online trading company IG also launched support for trading ethereum on Monday.

Trade in South Korean won accounted for about 30 percent of trading in ethereum, according to CryptoCompare. Bitcoin accounted for nearly 29 percent and the U.S. dollar about 25 percent, the site showed.

Traders were also using bitcoin to buy digital currencies such as Monero, a cryptocurrency focused on making transactions confidential and untraceable.

Is there a lightning speed stock market sell-off in August - Is there a lightning speed stock market sell-off in August

Is there a lightning speed’ stock market sell-off in August

"Is there a lightning speed’ stock market sell-off in August

in the news - Is there a lightning speed’ stock market sell-off in August? What this all about..... See below. 

Is there a lightning speed stock market sell-off in August
Is there a lightning speed stock market sell-off in August

With the recent bull market rally, market analysts are ademate that stock can continue to drive higher than we have ever seen in the history of the stock market. Is this true, have recent earnings been good enough to take us and soar past recent highs, or is this positively just a house of straw with nothing to show and ready to be blown over in a gust of wind?

The months of August and September are notorious for dramatic declines in the stock market, and there are a select few analysts who are sending out a dire warning investors to be mentally and financially ready when if it does eventuate!.

Stocks fell last week after a combination of weak retail earnings and bank stock performance spooked some investors.

"In the dog days of summer, we can get hit with lightning speed sell-offs, if we go back over 40 years, August and September have been notorious for seeing large and dramatic sell offs in the market. 

Rather than join the masses of scared investors in the next downturn, some analysts are seeing the other side of the coin. Meaning they are recommending clients to view it as a buying opportunity. That means having some cash available, and stock ideas on hand that could be put to work in a "cool and methodical" way.

Big wall st, guru type investors have not been spooked by the sell-off last week. There are charitable trust took action and purchased stocks like Nvidia and Activision Blizzard on weakness. These are just some ideas going forward while market constituents watch the ebbs and flow with the market. 

Despite the fact that everyone was freaking out, the positive backdrop for stocks didn't change. We have low inflation, low interest rates, good earnings and a weak dollar. So astute investors realize that sort of market environment can be very healthy in these dire times. Sometimes you have to look past the trees to see the forest!. 

Low inflation means that earnings for companies could be worth more in the future. often considered by some as to be a huge wrapped up Christmas gift, as high inflation could erode the long-term value case for equities.

Additionally, low interest rates can act as a positive catalyst to spur business in the U.S., and prompt investors to buy stocks with strong dividends. There are no guarantees but the role of this article is to try and help readers weigh up the positives and negatives and make informed decisions from that. 

Regardless of the positive implications of interest rates or inflation, some traders still have reservations.The first on the list would be that Congress is not in session currently. In this perspective, both sides of the aisle are at odds with President Trump. Thus, the market could move higher while Congress is not in session, and then be impacted negatively when it reconvenes in September. Hedge fund managers do watch the events in congress to make important decisions with their trades. So that might mean the stock market sits on shaky ground the next few months. 

Other worries on market analysts list were technology stocks, the recent bounce in transportation stocks and interest rates.

Ultimately, a good strategy going into the worst two months or the year, might be for investors to start selling the worst stocks in their portfolio that have managed to go up as a part of the broad rally and have some cash on hand for the next downturn.

Buffett's Berkshire dumps GE but bets further on banking sector

Sentiment Trader has seen today that, Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway sold its stake in General Electric as of the end of June, according to a regulatory filing on Monday.

The conglomerate had previously held 10.6 million shares of GE, according to its regulatory disclosure in May. John Flannery became CEO of General Electric on Aug. 1 after Jeff Immelt stepped down after 16 years. Flannery was previously president and CEO of GE Healthcare.

Berkshire appears to be keeping its hand in a legacy part of GE. It reported a 17.5 million share stake in Synchrony Financial, the financing arm of GE that was spun out in a 2014 initial public offering. Shares of Synchrony are down more than 18 percent this year, but they bounced up over 4 percent in after-hours trading Monday.

Berkshire also increased its holdings of Bank of New York Mellon by 52.2 percent, to 50.2 million shares.

Buffett has embraced the financial sector, which many believe is poised for growth after years of historically low interest rates and extra regulation. In June, Berkshire announced it would convert warrants it has in Bank of America to 700 million common shares, which will make it the bank's biggest shareholder once that conversion is complete.

Here is a recent chart of the XLF or the financial sector. 

 When we take a look at the XLF daily chart you can see we have clearly fallen out of a channel and uptrend. Although there might be some risks as AUGUST usually being a weak month for the markets, you can see the XLF [financial sectors] is still holding up rather well. 

Omaha, Nebraska-based Berkshire also raised its stake in General Motors by 20 percent in the second quarter, to 60 million shares. The automaker's shares are up 1.8 percent this year after battling a proxy contest by activist hedge fund Greenlight Capital, run by David Einhorn. GM shareholders voted overwhelmingly in support of the company in June, a defeat for Einhorn. Greenlight reported it held 59.7 million shares of GM at the end of June

Berkshire's GE holdings were just 0.12 percent of the outstanding shares. GE shares are down nearly 20 percent this year.

Buffett struck a deal during the financial crisis to invest $3 billion in GE and later converted warrants to common shares in the blue chip company in a deal similar to those he reached with Goldman Sachs and Bank of America.

will bitcoin rise to $5000 - will bitcoin rise to $5000

will bitcoin rise to $5000

"will bitcoin rise to $5000" 

in the news - will bitcoin rise to $5000? What this all about..... See below. 


There is much hype surrounding bitcoin right now, and many people who claim to by psychic think the price will soon reach $5000 per coin. But is this all crazy hype bubble-mania or is this coin the real deal and about to skyrocket into the atmosphere and create more millionaires along the way. 

IT is obvious that the genie is out of the bottle, and cryptocurrencies will continue to rise and take market share away from stocks, other precious metals, bonds and currencies  investors should take a shot on this If you lose a few bucks, at least you took a shot  In life, you miss every shot that you do not take. It will probably be more upsetting to watch it (from the sidelines) go up another  500%."

Another rival digital currency ethereum could double in value from just under $200 to reach $400 in the next year, and another digital currency, litecoin, to double from about $40 to $80.

stock analyst say  the top 20 digital currencies by market are creating huge buzz and it might be time to look at the crypto world if people have money to burn.
In 10-15 years from now, the charts on a few of the top 20 names could look like the Amazon, Apple, Tesla, Facebook, Netflix and Google charts look today.
Bitcoin has already as developers go ahead with a scheduled upgrade known as Bitcoin Cash. Direct owners of bitcoin will then hold two versions of the digital currency.

The market is telling you right now that there are many positives going forward and bitcoin due to limited supply in 2020 could make bitcoin even more rarer than gold. 

The digital currency hit a record $4,025 in this week with wall st analysts now circulated and wondering what all the hype is about. 
If major trends develop,  bitcoin could reach $5,000 "in a few years, we are not far away right now. 

Since march 2017, institutional attention on bitcoin has only increased.
Fundstrat co-founder Tom Lee became the first major Wall Street strategist to publish a report about bitcoin on July 7. Less than a week later, Switzerland's financial market regulator authorized the first Swiss bank to manage bitcoinfor clients, while the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission last Monday approved the first bitcoin options platform. This is big news, and caused some of the biggest names on wall st to look at this asset. 

Last Tuesday, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission also issued a report and investors bulletin on initial coin offerings, or sales of new digital coins.
There is now little doubt that 1% of the money in cash, bonds, stocks and gold will end up in cryptocurrencies, and that would only put the icing on the cake for bitcoin. 

Since the $80 billion cryptocurrency market right now is a 25th of 1 percent of the $200 trillion in gold, cash, stocks and bonds, we must  point out digital currencies will need to increase by 25 times in order to reach 1 percent of the overall capital market.

If cryptocurrencies become part of asset allocation models and take 2 to 4 percent of capital markets, then the digital currencies will likely increase 100 times in value. That is very possible in the coming years. 

Of course there are a host of risks for investing in digital currencies, including inherent high volatility, large-scale hacks on cryptocurrency firms and potential regulation, especially in China, that could cause prices to "collapse." That could be fast, but it’s a risk some market players are willing to take. 

In addition, there does seem to be a lack of customer support for online digital currency products.

"There is no telephone support," he said in the report. "You must go to the FAQs section and spend a long time looking for the answer to whatever question you may have — and then you may not be happy with the answer. Your only other option is to send an email to customer support which could take anywhere from one-to-seven days to get a reply."

All that said, it might be the right time to buy digital currencies is now. He described in his report how investors can buy bitcoin, and why financial institutions are interested in the blockchain technology behind bitcoin and other digital currencies. The potential of this might be even bigger than bitcoin itself. 
Some people keep watching from the sidelines for a few years and it felt recently as if the train is leaving the station, if we are talking NFL football,  we are still in the first quarter of a four quarter game and that even though I missed out on significant gains (2014 - 2016), it might not be too late to get in.

Bitcoin Price Crosses $3,000 Milestone - Bitcoin Price Crosses $3,000 Milestone

Bitcoin Price Crosses $3,000 Milestone

"Bitcoin Price Crosses $3,000 Milestone" 

in the news Bitcoin Price Crosses $3,000 Milestone? What this all about..... See below. 

SENTIMENT TRADER this week I have noticed 4 interesting things.

1.       In Switzerland for example, the financial market regulator gave Zurich-based Falcon Private Bank the green light on managing assets based on the blockchain technology behind bitcoin and other digital currencies.
2.      Early 2018, you will be able to trade BTC or ETH options on the futures and or options market. WOW! :-D
3.      digital currency has more than tripled for the year, versus gold's nearly 10 percent rise. People cannot ignore the attention.
4.      FLOOD OF MONEY! - overall size of the gold market at about $7.5 trillion dwarfs that of bitcoin. At Tuesday's prices, bitcoin had a market capitalization of roughly $57 billion, around the size of Charles Schwab.

Then you take a look at the chart, we are going up to all time highs, and its like nothing can stand in its way. Since we broke out of a classic ASCENDING TRIANGLE pattern a few weeks ago we have seen more buyers swarming in. 
 This is quite interesting when you look at the bitcoin daily chart. 

bitcoin chart - bitcoin technical analysis

The classic study we did on BITCOIN a while ago, basically in shorthand proved that BITCOIN had almost identical Characteristics similar to gold, but its digital. 

We could describe this as an Alternate currency going into 2018. Its getting popular. Supply of btc starting to slow which means after 12 or so months, as we go into 2019 BITCOIN will be a rarer asset than gold! WOW!

market wanes higher

market wanes higher

"market wanes higher" 

in the news market wanes higher? What this all about..... See below. 


Sentiment Trader can see that there might be a  'supervolcano' waiting to erupt beneath a seemingly 'beautiful' market.... ==> We have been warning about this HERE in our VIP DIAMOND newsletter <==

A 'herd mentality' has driven up valuations, the portfolio manager warns.

Warning: A correction in the market is "inevitable" and there are three key factors that could spark chaos on Wall Street, according statistics. 

We liken this market to Yellowstone National Park's famous supervolcano, which many believe is close to eruption. Stocks continued to hit record highs on Friday, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average setting its 8th consecutive all-time high.

Even though [the market] looks beautiful—setting new highs, good momentum, and earnings have been coming in strong, [there are] things to worry about," as there is several pieces of news we much watch in the coming weeks. 

Aside from the rise of passive investing, which is creating a "herd mentality" among investors, he also believed that the earnings picture isn't telling the whole story.

"In the 18 months ending in June, we saw companies that had no earnings, they were losing money, outperform those that were making money," We can highlight many stocks' performances this year may not be reflective of their revenues.

But the biggest threat to the market rally, we think is the current valuation levels of stocks.

SENTIMENT TRADER went back to 1994 and researched team data that said [that if we look at cyclically adjusted P/E, one out of two times] the market was down in the next 12 months, and about one out of three times it was down more than 10 percent.

DOW JONES CHART :We have broken a record on dow too. We have not had a red day or sell off for about 2 week now. WOW...This is quite interesting and incredible. 

SENTIMENT TRADER notes that when valuations have been this high, 10-year returns on the S&P 500 have been either in the single digits or negative 99 percent of the time.

It doesn't mean that we'll see a volcanic eruption in the immediate future, and these market peaks take a long time, but we're definitely in the latter stages of this market advance, We say we are going to see the inevitable correction, we just do not know when that will be.

A new digital currency is about to be created as the bitcoin blockchain is forced to split in two

A new digital currency is about to be created as the bitcoin blockchain is forced to split in two

"A new digital currency is about to be created as the bitcoin blockchain is forced to split in two" 

in the news A new digital currency is about to be created as the bitcoin blockchain is forced to split in two? What this all about..... See below. 


Sentiment Trader has seen a keen interest in bitcoin lately. 

Bitcoin faces a pivotal moment as investors are about to receive an entirely new asset called Bitcoin Cash after the blockchain supporting the cryptocurrency is forced to split in two.

The creation of Bitcoin Cash is certainly a pivotal moment for Bitcoin and its community.

"The inception of Bitcoin Cash may prove to be exactly what Bitcoin needs."

On August 1, a "user activated hard fork" will take place. Members of the bitcoin community unhappy with the direction of the digital asset have set up an alternative "node" called Bitcoin ABC.

Upon hearing the news, the price of bitcoin did JUMP and we are about to BUST OUT TO ALL TIME HIGHS! WOW!

Nodes are required to send messages across the bitcoin network, but Bitcoin ABC will use a different set of rules, causing the blockchain (the digital ledger which records every bitcoin transaction) to fork and create two separate digital assets: the original bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash.

And because Bitcoin Cash will have all the history from the old blockchain, any investors with bitcoin tokens will receive the same number of tokens on the new blockchain.

However, Bitcoin Cash will likely only be worth a fraction of bitcoin. The original digital currency is trading around $2778.39 today, but future values for Bitcoin Cash on the website Coin Market Cap are just $288.35, or 0.103 of a bitcoin.

Why is bitcoin splitting?

The bitcoin community has been divided on how to solve its scaling issue. Currently, only 1 megabyte of transactions can be processed at any one time, leading to delays.

"Demand for Bitcoin has been so high in recent months, that those creating the cryptocurrency can't keep up, slowing transactions," Iqbal Gandham, U.K. Managing Director at eToro, said in a press statement on Monday.

"For bitcoin to continue to scale and have the potential to become a globally used currency, this slowdown in transactions has to be addressed."

Haobtc's bitcoin mine site manager, Guo-hua, checks mining equipment inside their bitcoin mine near Kongyuxiang, Sichuan, China.

Bitcoin miners attempted to solve the scaling debate earlier this month by signalling support for SegWit2X. This would introduce "segregated witness" to the block chains, which would move some of the data outside the main bitcoin network to increase its capacity, and later increased the number of transaction to 2 megabytes.

However, some investors, miners and exchanges are unhappy with the proposal and think that it doesn't go far enough. Bitcoin Cash will increase the transaction limit to 8 megabytes.

"This means that the two sides that were once debating within Bitcoin, can instead apply their different views of what the cryptocurrency should be in two different blockchains," said Hayter.

"So while this is a development that sparked from previous disagreements, it may come to end the scaling debate once and for all."

Who is supporting Bitcoin Cash?

Bitcoin exchanges are divided on whether or not to support Bitcoin Cash. Several exchanges, such as BitMEX, Bitstamp and Coinbase, have said they will not support or allow trading of Bitcoin Cash on their exchanges, which means investors holding bitcoins on these sites will not receive any new tokens.

Some exchanges are also suspending bitcoin trading, withdrawal and deposits around the time of the fork. Hayter advises bitcoin investors to check for any statements issued by their exchange to find out whether or not they will receive the new token.

People attend a Bitcoin conference in New York. (File photo).
Bitcoin Cash may gain more support once it launches, according to Garrick Hileman, research fellow at the Cambridge Centre for Alternative Finance.

"Because millions of bitcoin users will automatically own Bitcoin Cash, and because a sizable number of wallets and exchanges (including some of the largest) have announced support for Bitcoin Cash, it is likely to live on for the foreseeable future," he told CNBC via email.

"Bitcoin Cash could be significant but we won't know more until after it launches. If it fails to sustain support then it could fade away."

What will Bitcoin Cash be worth?

Aurélien Menant, founder and CEO of Gatecoin, a regulated bitcoin and ethereum token exchange based in Hong Kong, says parts of the community are referring to the new token as Bcash. He says the new coin will pose no threat to the future of bitcoin.

"Investors holding both bitcoin and Bcash may benefit from the speculative price gains in both cryptocurrencies following the hard fork, but adoption of Bcash as a network will be limited in the short term."

Fran Strajnar, co-founder & CEO of data and research company Brave New Coin, says most cryto currency funds and investors are looking forward to receiving their free tokens.

Most will likely hold as it's free, just to see what happens or for hedging.

However a majority of everyday users, traders and investors are vocal about market dumping their free tokens as soon as they can.

If there's any legs at all to Bitcoin Cash or if the miners backing it deploy large scale and sustained attacks on bitcoin, then Bitcoin Cash may survive its initial violent birth.

Whatever happens, bitcoin will not disappoint in terms of creating drama, says Matthew Roszak, co-founder & chairman of blockchain enterprise software company Bloq.

"This entire process will be a key test for bitcoin in its evolution beyond a store of value and show its potential to grow into something much greater. Sentiment trader think keep watching this space to see how AUGUST pans out.
