  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: No Action Might Still Be an Indication

    October 20, 2014, 10:47 AM

    The action over the weekend didn’t result in Bitcoin being pushed above $400. The currency came close to this level but later retraced. These moves look like a sign of weakness as the currency stayed below $400 for a prolonged period of time. Is this really the case at this time?

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Bitcoin to Move to $350?

    October 17, 2014, 11:07 AM

    Bitcoin stayed below $400 yesterday and, in fact, today we’ve seen a move down. There has been an important change compared with the previous couple of days, though. Namely, the volume is visibly lower. At the moment of writing, not even 25% of yesterday’s volume has been reached. What kind of implications does this have for traders?

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Will Bitcoin Tumble Again?

    October 16, 2014, 12:33 PM

    We saw depreciation yesterday. The close was important not only since it was a first more visible lower daily close in days but also because the volume on which the move down took place was relatively significant. On top of that, the close caught Bitcoin below $400. What does this mean for traders?

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Important Stop at $400

    October 15, 2014, 10:50 AM

    We saw a move above $400 yesterday on relatively significant volume. This move has been partially reversed today. This leaves traders with the question "Is the rally over?" We tackle this challenge in today's alert.

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Is It Time to Take Profits off the Table?

    October 14, 2014, 10:25 AM

    We saw an important move yesterday, when Bitcoin moved above $400. The move happened together with an explosion in volume, which made the move all the more important. Today, the direction has been upheld. But Bitcoin has gone up far and fast lately. Is it time to take profits off the table?

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Local Bottom Is In

    October 13, 2014, 10:24 AM

    We saw the rally slow down over the weekend. Bitcoin stayed below the Thursday’s high and the volume was down, but not exactly weak. Yesterday, there was definitely more action to the upside and the volume was elevated. Bitcoin went up in a move which looks like a more visible sign of strength. Will this strength last?

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Bumpy Ride for Bitcoin Traders

    October 10, 2014, 10:34 AM

    We saw an explosion in volume yesterday. More than Bitcoin went up in the direction of $400, reversing later on. The change in short-term trend is now very well visible, but the recent turn (yesterday) was down. What does this mean for Bitcoin investors?

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Momentum on the Rise

    October 9, 2014, 9:44 AM

    We saw a more pronounced move up yesterday and Bitcoin broke the $350 barrier for the first time since the decline. The move was on rising volume, but overall the volume level was not extremely high. Was it a show of strength?

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Weak Volume Holds Clues for Traders

    October 8, 2014, 9:30 AM

    We saw modest appreciation yesterday, while the volume was less than a half of what it had been on the day before. Bitcoin didn’t move above $350, and trading was suppressed which suggests than Bitcoin might be after a period of high volatility right now. But are we facing a bottom or just a slowdown before more pain?

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Short-term Bottom Not Far Away?

    October 7, 2014, 9:02 AM

    We saw yet another day of significant volume yesterday. The currency went below $300 in the day, but came back above $300 to close not far from $330. Overall, compared with Sunday, it was a day of a higher daily low, higher high and a higher close, all on relatively significant volume. This suggests that yesterday was an important day as far as the short-term outlook was concerned. What implications do these events have for investors?

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Blood in the Streets

    October 6, 2014, 11:59 AM

    Bitcoin declined significantly over the weekend. The move seems to have started on Friday, late in the day. The true explosion of trading didn’t occur until Sunday. The volume was significant. Bitcoin went below that day, but recovered to above that level later on. What does this mean for Bitcoin traders?

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Volume Hints at Action to Come

    October 3, 2014, 8:22 AM

    Yesterday, Bitcoin went down, erasing most of Wednesday’s gains. The volume picked up late in the day but, overall, it still didn’t match what we had seen the day before. While there was depreciation it wasn’t particularly strong and Bitcoin ended the day around $375. What does this mean for Bitcoin traders?

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: How Much Depreciation Might Be Ahead?

    October 2, 2014, 11:26 AM

    We saw a move down yesterday. It erased some of Wednesday’s gains. The volume was similar to what we had seen on Wednesday. Today, there has been more depreciation. Does this change anything as far as the short-term outlook is concerned?

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Not Much Weakness So Far

    October 1, 2014, 1:04 PM

    Bitcoin came back with a vengeance yesterday. The objection about yesterday’s volume being relatively weak was partially alleviated. On the other hand, the volume today has been relatively depressed. What implications might this have for the short-term outlook?

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Is Bitcoin Moving away from $350?

    September 30, 2014, 3:01 PM

    Yesterday, we didn’t see Bitcoin appreciate. Instead, we saw something different, perhaps even more important for Bitcoin traders. Read our alert to find out what it was.

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Close Enough to $350

    September 29, 2014, 1:07 PM

    As it turned out, Bitcoin moved in the direction of $350 over the weekend. It came very close to the level at which we outlined a potential limit order ($360) but hasn’t broken this level so far. Where does this leave us as far as current positions are concerned? Read this alert to learn our opinion.

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: On the Way to $350

    September 26, 2014, 11:52 AM

    The move was decidedly down yesterday, if not in terms of volume, than in terms of the exchange rate. Today, we've also seen more depreciation. Will further declines follow?

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Bitcoin Might Move to $350

    September 25, 2014, 12:01 PM

    Yesterday, we titled our alert “Why This Might Not Be the Beginning of a New Rally,” indicating that the move up might not be of a lasting nature. The events have since confirmed this point of view with the currency now looking a lot weaker than it did two days ago. But does this depreciation suggest more downside in the weeks to come?

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Why This Might Not Be the Beginning of a New Rally

    September 24, 2014, 11:57 AM

    Yesterday's reversal took place on elevated volume and stopped at almost exactly $450. Did the short-term outlook change? Let’s answer that in today's alert.

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Fallout after the Decline

    September 23, 2014, 10:24 AM

    We recently saw a serious slump from about $475 to $400. The move was accompanied by a surge in volume and followed by a period of stabilization which we’re seeing at present. Will this stabilization last?

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: More Weakness Than You Might Think

    September 5, 2014, 1:35 PM

    We saw a great deal of activity yesterday. Bitcoin shot up to almost $500 before settling at a lower level around $485. The volume was relatively significant, particularly compared with the previous days. The events we saw yesterday may have been influenced by the ECB and its announcement of further interest rate cuts and new asset purchase programs. Will yesterday's move up have a lasting effect on the market?

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Did the ECB Boost Bitcoin?

    September 4, 2014, 12:42 PM

    Yesterday, we saw more consolidation in Bitcoin on falling volume. Overall, there were no important changes yesterday as far as short-term outlook was concerned. Today, the ECB lowered interest rates and announced new asset purchase programs. Does this move have any kind of implications for Bitcoin?

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Weakness but Is It Decisive?

    September 3, 2014, 11:14 AM

    Yesterday, the little appreciation we had seen was later reversed. All of this, the appreciation and the drop took place on relatively weak volume, weaker than on the day before yesterday. But is the picture really bearish?

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Bitcoin Might Move Shortly

    September 2, 2014, 9:59 AM

    The move down yesterday was not strong. Neither the close nor the volume itself suggested an overly bearish outlook. On the other hand, a reversal was denied which indicated that strength was not the major characteristic of the market at that time. Where is the market headed now?

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Important Short-term Change

    September 1, 2014, 11:27 AM

    The weekend brought changes. Bitcoin depreciated on Saturday but really plummeted on Sunday with a visible increase in volume. The move concluded below $500, close to $480, around the closes seen at the recent bottom. Is the outlook actually bearish now?

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: $500 as Current Downside Barrier

    August 29, 2014, 12:15 PM

    We saw a move down yesterday. This was a second day of depreciation. Such a situation might naturally evoke the question whether anything has actually changed as far as the short-term outlook. In this alert, we provide you with our opinion on where the market is headed.

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Move down Might Not Mean Much

    August 28, 2014, 12:53 PM

    We saw a move down yesterday on increased volume, but not increased enough to make it significant. A move down on increased volume might make you wonder about the short-term outlook for Bitcoin. We understand this kind of emotion and provide a clarification for you in this alert.

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Any Change for Bitcoin?

    August 27, 2014, 10:16 AM

    There was a move up yesterday and the volume was slightly higher than on the previous day. Does this change anything for Bitcoin just now?

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Bitcoin Market Provides Clues for Investors

    August 26, 2014, 11:36 AM

    Bitcoin went down yesterday but the move wasn’t strong and the volume didn’t support it. A day of depreciation made us wonder whether the case for Bitcoin was still bullish. This is probably the same thought you’re considering. We provide our answer in this alert.

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Local Bottom Might Be In

    August 25, 2014, 11:49 AM

    We saw up and down movement over the weekend but the general direction was down. The volume was going down as well. Because of that, the short-term move down doesn’t quite seem representative. You might wonder whether this is actually the case. We answer this in today's alert.

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Continuation of a Move up

    August 22, 2014, 12:29 PM

    We saw a move up yesterday but the appreciation was subsequently erased and Bitcoin ended the day where it had started it. The volume was down from the day before yesterday but not necessarily weak. Where is Bitcoin headed now?

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Reversal Getting Stronger

    August 21, 2014, 9:44 AM

    We saw another move up yesterday. The volume was relatively high, lower than during the final part of the recent decline but still relatively significant. Does this mean that we’re actually seeing a reversal now? Our answer will follow in this commentary.

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Feeble Reversal

    August 20, 2014, 12:56 PM

    We saw a move up yesterday. It was relatively strong volume-wise, with Bitcoin erasing some of its earlier losses. This looked like a first day of a possible reversal but the all-important level of $500 was not reached during the day. In such a situation, you might ask yourself this: “Did the situation just turn from bearish to bullish?” We provide you with an answer in this alert.

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: On the Brink of a Possible Reversal

    August 19, 2014, 8:50 AM

    Yesterday, Bitcoin went further down. The volume was significant, the highest during the whole recent decline. Yesterday was a significant day in the Bitcoin market. What kind of implications does this have in conjunction with today's action?

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Wild Swings to Precede Stabilization

    August 18, 2014, 11:38 AM

    We saw violent up-and-down action over the weekend. The volume was down compared with Wednesday and Thursday but it still was relatively strong. Will more depreciation follow or are we in for a rebound now?

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Did We Just See a Bottom?

    August 14, 2014, 10:54 AM

    We saw a strong move down yesterday on huge volume (at least compared with the last couple of days). Bitcoin moved below $550, changing the short-term outlook to bearish. Are there more declines to come?

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Bottom Might Be Close

    August 13, 2014, 11:31 AM

    We saw a move down yesterday. The volume was slightly up but not decidedly. Today is a completely different story. Bitcoin has dived below $550. The volume is almost three times as big as it was yesterday and this seems to confirm a strong move down. Does this suggest short positions at this time?

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: There Might Be More Than Meets the Eye...

    August 12, 2014, 1:13 PM

    We saw a relatively strong move down yesterday. The volume was up, which adds weight to the move. On the other hand, the $550 level still hasn’t been reached. Have we just seen a change in the market?

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Has the Market Really Calmed Down?

    August 11, 2014, 12:14 PM

    We saw a very weak move up over the weekend. The trading volume went up and down but it didn’t go outside of a range we can describe as “relatively weak.” Is the market really calm or are we in for more volatility in the days to come?

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Is This the Beginning of a Move up?

    August 8, 2014, 10:33 AM

    Yesterday, we saw a move up but it was not strong as the trading was down from the day before, which doesn’t quite confirm the appreciation. Does this mean that we're in for a period of depreciation or is a move up possible?

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Are Market Waters Really That Tranquil?

    August 7, 2014, 1:56 PM

    We saw marginal depreciation yesterday. The volume was up but Bitcoin failed to move decisively in any direction. This was yet another day of weak action but with increased volume. Is this an indication of tension building up in the market? We answer that question.

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Tense Days Ahead

    August 6, 2014, 9:50 AM

    The move down, even though it took place on increased volume, didn’t take Bitcoin much lower. Does this have any short-term implications for the cryptocurrency?

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Strong Move in Bitcoin Possible

    August 5, 2014, 11:31 AM

    We saw Bitcoin moving up and down yesterday on increased volume. Overall, the currency closed the day pretty much where it had started it. Today, we've seen some depreciation. What are the possible implications of these moves?

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: What Kind of Slowdown Are We Seeing?

    August 4, 2014, 10:50 AM

    We saw declines over the weekend but they were not very strong and neither was the volume on which the move down took place. Does this mean that we won't see more depreciation? Read this alert to get to know our opinion on that.

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Significant Day in the Bitcoin Market

    August 1, 2014, 1:26 PM

    We saw a strong move up yesterday on significant volume. This move took Bitcoin slightly above the recent declining trend line. Today, there's been even more appreciation. Are these the signs of a new rally unfolding?

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Is This Reversal to Last?

    July 31, 2014, 12:28 PM

    We now have seen two very contradictory developments. Yesterday, Bitcoin went down on significant volume. Today, however, the move's been up, erasing most of yesterday's losses. Is this the beginning of a new rally?

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Is Bitcoin Done Declining?

    July 30, 2014, 1:04 PM

    There was depreciation yesterday and we’ve seen declines today as well. On the other hand, the strength of the move has subsided compared with what we saw on Monday. Does this mean that the declines are over?

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Will Bitcoin Move Any Lower?

    July 29, 2014, 11:01 AM

    We saw intense action yesterday, where a significant decline was followed by a sharp move up. The volume was highest since Jun. 30 which makes yesterday’s session particularly significant. But is it necessarily in a bearish way?

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Will Bitcoin Move Further Down?

    July 28, 2014, 1:35 PM

    We saw declines over the weekend but not of the strong variety. The volume was not very pronounced as well. Today seems to be a different story altogether with volume significantly up. But is this enough to change the outlook?

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Pause in Action – What Next?

    July 25, 2014, 12:02 PM

    We saw a day of significant declines yesterday. But did these declines change the overall outlook? We analyze this situation from different angles and will provide you with an answer. As it turns out, it’s today’s action which provides us with additional clues.

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Bearish It Seems but Is It Really?

    July 24, 2014, 11:06 AM

    We’ve seen serious declines today. At this moment the question all investors ask themselves is: “Will the declines last?” This is exactly what we try to determine in today’s alert.

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Is Bitcoin Close to Moving Significantly?

    July 23, 2014, 10:27 AM

    We saw a fourth day of depreciation yesterday but, again, the volume was low. This sounds familiar, but are the implications different this time? Read this alert to get to know our opinion.

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Tensions Mount for Bitcoin

    July 22, 2014, 11:45 AM

    We saw yet another day of depreciation yesterday but the depreciation was fairly insignificant and the volume was low. Was this, by itself, a bearish sign?

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Lack of Reaction to Dell Announcement?

    July 21, 2014, 11:07 AM

    Bitcoin is currently testing one of the possible declining trends. The currency didn’t move up much following the announcement by Dell that the company would accept Bitcoin which might have been surprising for some investors. What does the combination of these factors suggest now?

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Medium-term Trend Being Tested

    July 18, 2014, 12:01 PM

    Bitcoin went up yesterday but has gone down today. The thing you might be wondering about is whether there have been any changes in the market. We certainly do wonder that from one day to another. This point is addressed in today's alert.

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Is This Move up Bullish Enough?

    July 17, 2014, 1:24 PM

    Bitcoin has gone up today. “Is this bullish enough?” the question might be knocking around hour head. We’ve asked ourselves the exact same question. In this alert we let you know what we think.

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: On the Verge of the Next Big Move

    July 16, 2014, 1:41 PM

    We’re currently witnessing an interesting short-term development. Bitcoin is still above the recent declining trend but it might be establishing a new declining trend. Seeing as you probably wonder which of these is more significant for the next move, we’ll try to clear the situation up for you in this alert.

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Strong Move Possibly Ahead

    July 15, 2014, 12:09 PM

    Not much has changed in the Bitcoin market since yesterday, so you’re probably thinking, “is not much enough to change the short-term outlook?” We try to answer that in today's commentary.

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Implications of Depreciation

    July 14, 2014, 11:00 AM

    We saw part of Friday’s gains being erased on Sunday but a more visible move down has occurred only today. Bitcoin has written off most of its recent gains. This is bound to make you think if anything has changed in the market and so it makes us. Has it?

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Sign of Reversal?

    July 11, 2014, 2:12 PM

    We saw depreciation yesterday. You were probably worried by Bitcoin going down in light of the short-term outlook, and so were we. We were trying to figure out the direction in which Bitcoin were to move just as much as you did. Has anything changed since yesterday?

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Depreciation to Be Followed by…

    July 10, 2014, 12:15 PM

    We saw a move lower yesterday but it wasn’t confirmed by the trading volume. The actual price moves late in the day echoed the concerns about the supposedly bearish nature of the move we had previously expressed. Has anything changed since yesterday?

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Slowdown Reinforces Short-term Outlook

    July 9, 2014, 9:16 AM

    Bitcoin is now visibly below the recent trend of appreciation. On the other hand, the currency didn’t really move significantly lower yesterday. At what kind of short-term outlook does the above hint?

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Move Down Possibly Dying Out

    July 8, 2014, 8:25 AM

    Bitcoin went down yesterday on increased volume but the overall figure of bitcoins traded was not relatively high. This was in line with our yesterday’s remarks. Today, the move down seems to have stopped. What does it mean for Bitcoin investors?

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Ready to Move?

    July 7, 2014, 12:07 PM

    The appreciation scenario materialized with a move above $600. Bitcoin has since retraced to around but the volume of the move hasn’t been significant compared with that of the move up. What do we make of the current situation? Read this alert to find out.

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: New Rally Might Be Close

    June 27, 2014, 12:45 PM

    Bitcoin moved up yesterday. The volume was weak which didn’t make the session particularly significant but a partial recovery of the recent losses was definitely a development more bullish than not. Today, we've seen more appreciation. Is this the beginning of a new rally?

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Appreciation but No Reversal

    June 26, 2014, 1:04 PM

    We saw another day of declines yesterday, third in a row and on increased volume. The drop and the volume on which it took place made the short-term situation bearish. Today, however, we've seen appreciation. Is there a change in outlook?

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Is This the Final Decline for Now?

    June 25, 2014, 1:34 PM

    Bitcoin depreciated yesterday. The volume was up but still not very strong. This was a bearish development for the short-term but not excessively so. Does today's decline add more bearish implications?

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Bitcoin at Crossroads

    June 24, 2014, 11:18 AM

    There hasn't been much action in the Bitcoin market in the last couple of days. The exchange rate has remained relatively stable close to $600. Is this any indication of the possible next moves in the market?

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: More Tension as Bitcoin Consolidates

    June 23, 2014, 11:50 AM

    We’ve seen more of the same – Bitcoin is going up and down close to $600 without breaking above or below this level decidedly. The volume is relatively weak. Which way might Bitcoin go?

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Bitcoin Wavering around $600 – Which Way Will It Go?

    June 20, 2014, 11:02 AM

    Bitcoin declined back below $600 yesterday. This means that the next move up is not confirmed at this time. But does this suggest it's time to go short? Read this alert to learn our opinion.

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Possible Move up in Bitcoin

    June 18, 2014, 10:44 AM

    We saw a move above $600 yesterday. This seems extremely bullish for the short-term if we look at the price action only. The volume is slightly more worrying since it was actually lower than on Monday. Today, we're still seeing Bitcoin above $600. Where do these mixed signals bring us?

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Tense Days Ahead for Bitcoin

    June 17, 2014, 11:41 AM

    Yesterday, we saw Bitcoin go down. The volume was higher than on the day before yesterday. All in all, a move up was invalidated and Bitcoin closed below $600. This smacked of possible bearish implications. Does this mean that we have a shorting opportunity?

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: More Depreciation Not All Improbable for Bitcoin

    June 16, 2014, 11:56 AM

    We saw Friday’s gains being reversed on Saturday but there was more appreciation on Sunday. Overall, Bitcoin ended Sunday pretty much where it had closed on Friday. Taking into account the action today, is this time to go long?

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Depreciation, Reversal – Which Will Prevail for Bitcoin?

    June 13, 2014, 10:48 AM

    Yesterday was definitely one of the most important days following the recent rally. Bitcoin declined heavily on strong volume, but it has since then recovered part of the losses. Which kind of outlook prevails at this time: bullish or bearish? Read this alert to get to know our opinion.

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Bitcoin Down, Might Not Be for Long

    June 12, 2014, 8:14 AM

    Yesterday, the volume picked up and Bitcoin fell. It didn't, however, fall below $600. Today the action has been calm so far. Does this mean it's time to go long in our opinion?

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: More Downward Pressure on Bitcoin

    June 11, 2014, 10:01 AM
    Bitcoin has lost around 2% today in the early hours which looks more bearish than what we saw yesterday. Is this enough to go short, though? We present our opinion in today's commentary.
  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: More Appreciation to Come for Bitcoin but Not Just Now

    June 10, 2014, 11:02 AM

    We didn’t see any decisive action yesterday. The volume was up but it was not confirmed by a large swing. There hasn't been a large move today as well. Does this mean that the rally has run out of steam?

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Hovering above $600 – Confirmation or No Confirmation?

    June 9, 2014, 11:31 AM

    Bitcoin stabilized over the weekend. We saw the trading volume fall and the price moves became flat. Most importantly, all this took place around $650, well over $600. Does this mean that long positions might be warranted at this time?

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Will Bitcoin Hold Up above $600?

    June 5, 2014, 10:34 AM

    We saw a pullback in the direction of $600 yesterday but it has been denied since then. Which outlook, bullish or bearish, prevails at the moment?

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Not Enough Bearish Clues for Bitcoin

    June 4, 2014, 10:36 AM

    Bitcoin continued the appreciation pattern yesterday, however, on falling volume. The move itself had rather bearish implications but not bearish enough, especially given the recent volatile days followed by appreciation. Today, we've seen depreciation. Does this mean that the short-term outlook is bearish?

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Reversal or No Reversal?

    June 3, 2014, 10:51 AM

    The exchange rate moved up in the late hours yesterday. The day ended above $650. The volume at was lower than on the previous day but still relatively high. Yesterday was the fourth close above $600 and the first close above $650. This seems to confirm the breakout above $600 and a shift in the outlook to bullish. After the recent appreciation, however, we might see a pause. Does this make the short-term outlook bullish or bearish at this time?

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Bitcoin above $600 – Possible Long-term Implications

    June 2, 2014, 11:25 AM

    Bitcoin went up strongly on Friday but stopped the move up on Saturday and completely retraced after a sharp move up on Sunday. All of this made the short-term outlook bearish, particularly in light of the strong reversal seen on Sunday. Today, we've seen more of a pause. What kind of implications does this have for the short- and long-term outlook?

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Crucial Days Ahead of Bitcoin

    May 30, 2014, 11:53 AM

    We’ve seen a move above $600 today. This is a major development in the sense that it might change not only the short-term outlook but also the medium-term outlook. In what way?

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: First Higher High in Months?

    May 29, 2014, 11:09 AM

    Bitcoin went up yesterday but has gone back down today. The volume yesterday was weaker than in the previous days and today it’s shaping up to stay this way. Does today's move down have bearish implications for the short term?

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Bitcoin at Major Crossroads

    May 28, 2014, 11:40 AM

    Yesterday, Bitcoin declined, a first day of declines in four days. The move took place on relatively high volume. This was an important day since it pointed to a possible pause or decline in the recent rally. Today we've seen more depreciation. Is it time to go short?

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: What Kind of Barrier $600 Might Be?

    May 27, 2014, 12:25 PM

    Bitcoin slowed down yesterday and we saw a decrease in trading volume. The volume wasn’t actually small, at least not relative to the recent past, so the implications were not strongly bearish. Today, we've seen a move down. Is this enough to go short?

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: No Stop for Bitcoin before $600?

    May 26, 2014, 8:42 AM

    Bitcoin paused on Friday and Saturday, only to resume the rally on Sunday. The volume yesterday was relatively high and the exchange rate moved up. With this move, the currency came closer to the $600 area, a level it hasn’t crossed since March 21. Will $600 stop the appreciation?

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Two Scenarios for Bitcoin

    May 23, 2014, 11:47 AM

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Will Bitcoin Stay above $500?

    May 22, 2014, 11:08 AM

    Bitcoin paused the rally yesterday, moving up on moderate volume. The action looked like either a reversal or a pause in the move up.

You'll find our answer to that in the alert.

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Possible Change in Short-term Outlook?

    May 20, 2014, 11:15 AM

    Yesterday, there were no visible changes in the Bitcoin market. The trend remained flat and Bitcoin didn’t close above $450. The volume was up from the day before but not extremely so. Today, however, we've seen a relatively strong move up. Is this enough to change the short-term outlook?

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Standing Still, Waiting to Move down

    May 19, 2014, 10:52 AM

    Looking at Bitcoin, we see that over the weekend Bitcoin failed to close above $450 and that the volume on Friday to Sunday was relatively weak. This has continued today. Is this lack of action an indication in itself?

    May 16, 2014, 1:52 PM

    May 15, 2014, 10:41 AM

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Opportunities for Short-term Trades

    May 14, 2014, 11:20 AM

    We saw relatively little action yesterday, more than one day before but still relatively little, as evidenced by volume levels. Overall, Bitcoin managed to go down, but the difference between the two most recent closing prices cannot be perceived as significant. Today, however, we've seen appreciation. Does this change anything as far as the short-term outlook is concerned?

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Time to Back Out?

    May 13, 2014, 11:37 AM

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: First Move Down Behind Us. More to Come in Future?

    May 12, 2014, 1:59 PM

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: This Move up Might Be Less Bullish Than You Think

    May 9, 2014, 10:54 AM

    Bitcoin didn't move significantly in either direction yesterday which could be an indication that the short-term strength was over. This was further supported by the fact that the volume was almost halved when compared with that of the previous day. There was no strong move down, however and today we've seen the currency move up. In this alert we explain why this move might actually be less bullish than it looks on first sight.

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: This Is Not a New Rally

    May 8, 2014, 10:50 AM

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Why This Move Might Be a Fake One

    May 7, 2014, 11:41 AM

    Bitcoin went down yesterday. The move itself looked bearish on first sight but it didn’t justify opening short positions as a move up was possible. Today, we're seeing a move in the opposite direction. Is this enough to justify opening short-term positions now?

  • Bitcoin Trading Alert: Reaction or Lack of Reaction to News from China?

    May 6, 2014, 9:58 AM

    April 25, 2014, 11:42 AM
