December 2019 Market Update – Bull Quiet Market Type By, Van K. Tharp, PhD

  I always say that people do not trade the markets; they trade their beliefs about the markets. In that same way, I’d like to point out that these updates reflect my own beliefs. I find the market update information useful for my trading, so I do the work each month and am happy to share that information with my readers. If your beliefs are not similar to mine however, this information may not be useful to you. Therefore, if you’re inclined to conduct some sort of intellectual exercise in …

Crypto Update – Heavy Altcoin Selling Today By Gabriel Grammatidis

After today’s strong sell-off in the Altcoins I am expecting to see new lows (Weekly chart) in the coming weeks. The Altcoins already lagging BTC quite a bit, new lows will trigger a panic with the Crypto-perma-bulls who should then become desperate throwing the towel. This is the moment when the weak hands change with the strong ones. As long as BTC remains above the 3200 level (the last major low) my bullish case for BTC >100,000 is still valid. Watch Gabriel’s video below:

Update on Cryptoassets as of November 15th, by Van K. Tharp, PhD

A lot of things are happening in the crypto world but none of them seem to be driving prices up.

Mid month October, the index was down to 358.28. Market Summary Cryptoassets started 2019 with three flat months followed by a strong uptrend until the end of June when the Bloomberg Galaxy Crypto Index …

Have You Heard the Starting Shot For Bitcoin As Well?, by Gabriel Grammatidis

Just a few days ago on the 25th of October, the price of Bitcoin surged by a staggering +42% within 15 hours representing one of its biggest moves since its inception in 2009. Even for a volatile asset class, this move was very big — BTC jumped 3,000 points from $7,300 to more than $10,400. It is interesting to note that Bull markets often start with an exciting initial move that makes market actors aware of the fact that something is going on. What might actually have happened that made …

October 15th Update on Cryptoassets, by Van K. Tharp, PhD

A lot of things are happening in the crypto world but none of them seem to be driving prices up. Last month BTC went into a bear market according to our SQN® 100 index.

July 15th Update on Cryptoassets, by Van K. Tharp, PhD

Market Summary Cryptoassets started the year with three flat months followed by a strong uptrend for the last three months. Most major cryptoassets are up over 100% since mid-December. The obvious bull trend since the first of the year is easy to see just looking at Bloomberg’s Galaxy Crypto Index chart below. Bloomberg’s Index tracks ten major cryptoassets and Bloomberg started the index in May, 2018 at 1000. Thus, the index has been active for about a year and is now just under 50% of its starting level. The table …

Bitcoin and Cryptocurrencies — Becoming Their Own Asset Class, by D. R. Barton, Jr.

Growing up in the Blue Ridge mountains of the southwestern part of Virginia, I had daily opportunities to interact with nature. I particularly loved animals. In addition to our beloved family dog, I had many pets growing up. We raised an American Robin chick when the branch holding its nest broke and the mom would not return to raise the chicks. I had lizards, several varieties of snakes, native and tropical fish (including piranhas), mice, and the list goes on. So my parents weren’t surprised when early in my high …
