  1. MASTER TRADER JOE ROSS PASSES ON Dear Traders, We are sad to inform you of the passing of Master Trader Joe Ross on the morning of Tuesday, September 7, 2021 at the age of 87. He went peacefully doing what he loved, by taking care of Loretta, his wife of 62 years of marriage and teaching his students from every continent how to trade. Joe has always been a free spirit and loved the trading world being his own boss. He quickly learned that teaching others was his true passion. The joy of educating those about a system in which he had true confidence and to see others come into their own. That was his greatest pleasure. He was proud to be a devoted Christian and combined spirituality with trading. Our condolences to our traders and students for the loss of a mentor and close friend, some would even go as far as saying a "father-figure" and he wore that title proudly. Master Trader Joe Ross' passing came upon us unexpectedly and suddenly. Again, we would like to send our condolences to those who lost a mentor and a friend. Joe, you will forever be in our hearts. Who is Joe Ross? Joe Ross is the creator of the Ross hook™, and has set new standards for low-risk trading with his concepts of "The Law of Charts™" and the "Traders Trick Entry™." Joe was a private trader and investor for much of his life, but a serious health situation in the late 80's caused him to shift his focus, and that is when he decided to share his knowledge. After his recovery, he founded Trading Educators in 1988, to teach aspiring traders how to make profits using his trading approach. Joe Ross has written twelve major books and countless articles and essays about trading. All his books have become classics, and have been translated into many different languages. His students from around the world number in the thousands. His file of letters containing thanks and appreciation from students on every continent is huge: As one student, a successful trader, wrote: "Your mastery of teaching is even greater than my mastery of trading." Joe Ross holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration from the University of California at Los Angeles. He did his Masters work in Computer Sciences at the George Washington University extension in Norfolk, Virginia. He is listed in "Who's Who in America." After 5 decades of trading and investing, Joe Ross still tutors, teaches, writes, and trades regularly. Joe is an active and integral part of Trading Educators. He is the founder and contributor of the company's newsletter Chart Scan™. “Master Traders Joe Ross was one of the most eclectic traders in the world. And he remains one of the few best mentors I have, alongside, Dr. Van. K. Tharp (may he live long), and one or two others. His teachings and insights into the markets have contributed in making me who I am today. He also talks about the spiritual side of trading (https://tradingeducators.com/about-our-traders), concluding that trading is no sin.” – Azeez M. “The trading world has lost a unique and passionate trader. He explained to me that his material will never go out of date, only the technology. Recently, we updated several of his hardback books into eBooks and he was right. From making trades over the phone to the "pit" then to opening an online account, my how things have changed. But he is correct about his methods, they will continue to apply to the markets regardless of how technolgy advances.” - Martha Ross-Edmunds (Joe’s daughter) Joe Ross' Trading Philosophy: "Teach our students the truth in trading — teach them how to trade," and "Give them a way to earn while they learn — realizing that it takes time to develop a successful trader."

  2. Amid the bearish charge witnessed in Bitcoin (BTC) on Monday, El Salvador President Nayib Bukele revealed that the country bought the dip. El Salvador’s Bitcoin Law went into effect on September 7, making it the first sovereign nation to adopt the flagship cryptocurrency as legal tender. President Bukele announced via Twitter that his government acquired an additional 150 BTC with the dip. He tweeted that: BTC traded around $45,000 when Bukele made the announcement yesterday. However, the cryptocurrency has since dropped to the lower-$40,000 area, according to data from TradingView. Meanwhile, ATM tracking website Coinatmradar.com recently revealed that the North American nation now has 205 crypto ATM locations, the third-largest by a country (behind the US and Canada). The launch of the Chivo wallet, the country’s official crypto wallet, started with a rocky start. However, Bukele has assured that the Chivo app now operates in optimal capacity. Reports show that the full adoption of the Chivo app could cost remittance providers like Moneygram and Western Union over $400 million per annum. Last Friday, Bukele tweeted that about 1.1 million Salvadorans now use the Chivo wallet, adding that: “we haven’t enabled 65% of phone models yet.” Key Bitcoin Levels to Watch — September 21 BTC has fallen to a new monthly low of $40,140 following the industry-wide crash. The benchmark cryptocurrency now struggles to pick itself up and back to recent highs. Already, Bitcoin is on track to post a red monthly candle for September as it always has since it went mainstream. BTCUSD – 4-Hour Chart That said, we expect a steady rebound above the $44,000 mark and higher over the coming hours. Nonetheless, we could see a retest of the $41,000 mark if bulls fail to reclaim the $44,000 level soon. Meanwhile, our resistance levels are at $44,000, $44,400, and $45,000, and our key support levels are at $43,000, $42,000, and $41,000.

  5. AUDJPY Faces the 80.760 Support Level in Its Downtrend AUDJPY Price Analysis – September 13 AUDJPY faces the 80.760 key level as it slips downward. The market began an uptrend after price beat a retreat at the 78.200 support level. The market kept climbing upward till it reached 82.090, at which point the market was knocked down. On its way downward, however, AUDJPY now faces the 80.760 key level which is preventing it from falling further. AUDJPY Important Zones Resistance Zones: 81.500, 82.090, 82.900 Support Zones: 78.200, 79.460, 80.760 AUDJPY Long Term Trend: Bearish The AUDJPY market for the past 3 months can generally be described as bearish. This is because, since the 16th of June 2021, price has been falling. Bears faced a confrontation in the fall, majorly at 82.900 and then at 80.760. However, when the market fell to 79.200 on the 19th of August, the downtrend was reversed and price began a fresh uptrend. The market grew 5.27% to reach 82.090, where AUDJPY met brutal resistance and started plunging again. AUDJPY now faces the 80.760 key level again. The last time the price fell to this level, it took about 20 days to recover. The MA period 10 (Moving Average) has shifted to the top of the latest daily candle to push it further down. The Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) is showing decreasing bullish histogram bars and its lines are converging towards the zero level. These emphasize the weight of bearish pressure in the market. But the 80.760 level will fancy its chances of keeping price up. AUDJPY Short Term Trend: Ranging AUDJPY 4-hour timeframe reveals that price has begun a ranging pattern below the 81.500 key level as 80.760 has been defending price. The MA period 10 remains above the 4-hours candlesticks, which is a sign of continuous market depression. The MACD Histogram has been all bearish since the 6th of September. Moreso, its lines are about to cross beneath the zero level. This shows that there is a tendency for the market to break lower from the 80.760 key level. When this happens, the price will fall to 80.100. Source: https://learn2.trade

  7. “Profit and discomfort stand side by side. Ancient wisdom from the East: What at first brings pleasure in the end gives only pain, but what at first causes pain ends up in great pleasure. Don’t confuse execution with opportunity. Save Donkey Kong for the weekend. Pretty colors and fast fingers don’t make successful careers. Understanding price behavior and market mechanics does. Learn what a good trade looks like before falling in love with fancy software. Control risk before seeking reward. Wear your market chastity belt at all times. Attention to profit is a sign of immaturity, while attention to loss is a sign of experience. The markets have no intention of offering money to those who do not earn it. Don’t count your chickens. Profits aren’t booked until the trade is closed out. The market gives and the market takes away with great fury. Don’t have a paycheck mentality. You don’t deserve anything for all of your hard work. The market only pays off when you’re right, and your timing is really, really good. Don’t try to get even. Trading is never a game of catch-up. Every position must stand on its merits. Take your loss with composure, and take the next trade with absolute discipline. Don’t seek the Holy Grail. There is no secret trading formula, other than solid risk management. So stop looking for it. Don’t forget your discipline. Learning the basics is easy. Most traders fail due to a lack of discipline, not a lack of knowledge. Don’t project your personal life. Trading gives you the perfect opportunity to discover just how messed up your life really is. Get your own house in order before playing the markets. Don’t think it’s entertainment. Successful trading will be boring most of the time, just like the real job you have right now.” - Author: Alan Farley Profits from games of knowledge: https://www.predictmag.com/

  9. XAGUSD Surges on Dismal US Jobs Report Amid Depressed Dollar XAGUSD Price Analysis – September 5 Silver (XAG) is up 3.90 percent from the last session, assisted by the dismal NFP report, which came in below forecasts. XAGUSD reached $24.87, its highest level in a month, as per the technical analysis. The dollar stays depressed overall, extending weekly losses. Key Levels Resistance Levels: $26.00, $25.50, $25.00 Support Levels: $23.50, $22.87, $21.89 XAGUSD Long term Trend: Ranging Long-term and mid-term bias is optimistic, and a climb towards $25.00 is expected if the broken $24.50 barrier level remains as support. On the other side, a break and closure below $24.50 would bring the $24.00 level back into focus. The pair is ranging and may go either way this week. On the contrary, we’ll anticipate more downside below $24.50, with objectives of $24.00 and $23.50 on dollar’s strength. From a technical standpoint, a breakout south might happen in the next several trading days. In this instance, the XAGUSD exchange rate might find support at 23.50 percent and $23.00. XAGUSD Short term Trend: Ranging The recent breakout past $24.50 is expected to last through the coming trading sessions from a technical standpoint. In this case, the horizontal support level of $24.00 could provide support to the XAGUSD exchange rate in case of a retracement. The RSI stays overbought in the short term. The pair is expected to find initial support at $24.50, however, further breach lower may go with a slide through taking it to the next support level of $24.00. On the positive, the pair is expected to hit its first level of resistance around $25.00, with a spike through taking it to $25.50. Source: https://learn2.trade

  12. EURCHF Keeps Retesting Zones as It Continues to Range EURCHF Price Analysis ­– August 24 EURCHF keeps retesting between the 1.0070 resistance key level and the 1.0700 support level. The market has been kept back by its bearish trend. This is due to price rejection between the two key zones. The EURCHF market has been battling to continue its bearish trend and has been retesting. Price is anticipated to gain a little bullish momentum as it maintains its accumulation level. EURCHF Significant Zones Resistance levels: 1.07700, 1.09050 Support levels: 1.07000, 1.08350 EURCHF Long Term Trend: Ranging The market began to tumble and move in a bearish trend after a retesting of the 1.0905 resistance key level. After accumulating between the 1.08350 and 1.07700 key levels, this trend gained strength. Following that, the price breaks out in a bearish direction. There appears to be a pullback as the market begins to retest the key level of 1.0770. Several price rejections have occurred near this key level. Because of the price accumulation around this level, the EURCHF price may either gain more bullish strength or continue in its bearish direction. However, the market has maintained a significant range between the 1.07700 resistance level and the 1.0700 support level. Price will continue to accumulate before a breakout can occur. The stochastic Oscillator on the daily chart gives a cross around the 50 level. This indicates market indecision as its ranges. This demonstrates that neither the bears nor the bulls were willing to make a decisive move lower or higher as the market continued to range, retesting key levels. EURCHF Short Term Trend: Ranging On the 4-hour chart, the market is still in a range and retesting key levels. As more dots are displayed on the Parabolic SAR (Stop and Reverse). This indicates a bearish continuation. The Stochastic Oscillator indicates an oversold condition, indicating that the market is likely to reverse near 1.07700. This reversal could be a retest of the key resistance level of 1.07700 or a break above it. Source: https://learn2.trade
  13. USDCHF Slide Poised To Remain, Swissy Gains From Safe-Haven Status USDCHF Price Analysis – August 24 During Tuesday’s European trading hours, the USDCHF maintain its decline and struck a low of 0.9117 after sliding from the prior day’s high of approximately 0.9178. Amid concerns about the coronavirus and a resurgence in the global economy, the Swiss franc gains on its safe-haven status. At the time of this post, USDCHF is trading at 0.9129. Key Levels Resistance Levels: 0.9240, 0.9200, 0.9150 Support Levels: 0.9080, 0.9050, 0.9000 USDCHF Long term Trend: Ranging On the daily chart’s technical front, a clean break out of the 0.9117 low level could hasten the downturn. Take note of the 0.9018 low of August. If the price falls below 0.9117, the recent low of 0.9018 will be reached. The 0.9000 support zone is guarded by the latest low of 0.9018. To bring volume to the lows of the 0.9018/0.9000 zone, a fall at 0.9117 is required. However, there are no obvious indicators of completion at this time. The next objective is the anticipated return from 0.9117 to 0.9150 when high-volume trading resumes. A big breakthrough of the 0.9170 resistance level, on the other hand, would be an early indication of a trend reversal and might bring attention to the 0.9200 upside zone. USDCHF Short term Trend: Ranging The intraday slope of the USDCHF remains in a range, implying a retest of the 0.9018 bottoms. A break of the minor barrier around 0.9150, on the other hand, would shift short-term expectations and neutralize intraday bias once more. Meanwhile, in order to resume consolidation and enter a new phase of expansion the intraday bias will be dragged back to 0.9200. The downward slopes of the 5 and 13 moving averages, which are also in a bearish slide, provide additional support for recent near-term forecasts. The RSI is declining, and the short-term picture remains skewed towards August lows, with a breach below this level reinforcing bearish fears. Source: https://learn2.trade

  16. XAGUSD Attempt at Further Recovery Stays Beneath $26.00 XAGUSD Price Analysis – August 1 Silver has made another attempt to climb higher and has recouped some of its previous losses, but the XAGUSD pair still has a long way to go before the buyers are secure. As buyers observe the gap between central banks and mixed greenback over its peers during times of heightened risk aversion, Silver stays beneath $26.00. Key Levels Resistance Levels: $27.50, $26.75, $26.00 Support Levels: $25.00, $24.50, $24.00 XAGUSD Long term Trend: Ranging On the daily chart, the main resistance levels to watch are $26.00 and $26.75 levels, which have restricted its upside since early July. The recent low level around the daily ascending trendline at $24.50 should provide instant support in the case of an unforeseen downturn. If the $26.00 and $26.75 barrier fails to hold, silver prices may be ready to move further in the medium to long term. The market action has generally been consolidating beneath the $26.00 levels during the last few days. A steady rise towards the February 1 highs could be feasible if it breaks above the $27.50 mark. XAGUSD Short term Trend: Ranging On the 4-hour chart, silver appears to be constrained by a big technical hurdle at $25.80. If the barrier holds, XAGUSD is anticipated to find support near the $25.30 level, slowing the bears and expanding gains against the US Dollar in the short term, thanks to the 4-hour moving average of 13. In the meantime, bears are unlikely to win the market. The upward range between $26.00 and $26.75 might be a potential upside goal. A persistent break below, on the other hand, could signal bullish exhaustion, putting the pair at risk of breaching the major $25.00 psychological mark. Source: https://learn2.trade

Those principles ensure that you triumph no matter what the market does. And by following the principles, they make you smarter than many other traders out there, who are on the other side of your trades. Most traders on the other side are losing traders, and sincerely speaking, the losses they sustain are what translate to profits for smart traders. In order words, for you to make profits from the markets, certain traders have to lose. One trader’s positivity is another trader’s negativity. To enjoy everlasting profitability in the markets, the trader must find ways to outsmart other market players; otherwise, the trader will run into problems. What can you do to outperform other traders? WHAT THE MARKET-NEUTRAL STRATEGY DOES For those who don’t know what they are doing, and who have not mastered the art of trading, trading is one of the hardest jobs in the world. Why is trading so hard? It’s because no one knows where the price is going next. Yes, we predict, but we’re not always right. Sometimes, the market will go as predicted, and sometimes, it won’t. Sometimes, the market will first go against you before going in your favor, and sometimes, it would first go in your favor, only to later turn against you. In face of all the vagaries of the markets, how then will one manage to make profits? That’s where a non-directional trading methodology like the one used here is extremely useful. The trick is to catch pips no matter what the market does. Granted, we may not have a 100% guarantee about where the market goes next, but we know that we will make profits no matter where the market goes. The aim is to generate profits regardless of what the market does, whether up or down. We no longer care about the direction of the market once we have entered; knowing full well that we will make money whatever the market does afterward. That is the essence of this market-neutral system. UNCERTAINTY IS OUR ALLY The unpredictability of the market, which scares most people away, is the most important determinant of our gains. It is the factor that enables us to make profits. What most see as a problem is a boon to us. What causes fears in other people is what brings peace of mind to us. We make profits only because we enjoy dealing with losses. We can’t predict the market with certainties, yet we make money from uncertainties, which will forever be on our side. Once we open trades, the market can do anything they like, and we eventually make money regardless of that. TURNING LOSS INTO PROFIT Embracing loss to make profit is something that must be done, in order to be triumphant on the battlefield of the financial markets. In one of his past newsletters, Dr. Van K. Tharp says: “In any endeavor in life, you have up and down periods. Dealing with the market has many such up and down periods. To profit from the up periods, you have to tolerate or even “enjoy” the down periods. …It turns out that one of the major problems people have in going from their current location to their desired goal is all of the walls or obstacles they continually run into each day. There is a common solution to these obstacles — make them okay. Don’t worry about getting from point A to B, just enjoy bumping into the walls. If you’re in the market, one of the biggest obstacles you’ll face is the wall of losses. It’s fairly difficult to deal with the markets if you are not willing to lose. It’s almost impossible. It’s like wanting to be alive, but only wanting to breathe in and not breathe out. When you want to be right, you’re not dealing with the obstacles. Instead, you’re forcing things. When you want to make a profit out of today’s trade, even though it’s a big loser, then you’re not dealing with today’s obstacle. Enjoy the obstacle, embrace it, and be willing to accept it. If the market tells you it’s time to get out at a loss, then do so. Quite often traders take the relationship they are having with the market and transmute it by developing a different system or trading with a professional money manager. Now, the old struggle they used to have with the market—of not accepting what the market gives them—becomes a similar struggle they are having with their system or with their new advisor. Instead of giving up on the market after a string of losses, just in time to miss the really big move, they avoid their system until it is doing well. When it is showing tremendous profits, they jump on board — only to be blown away by the market. And the same thing happens when they invest with money managers. This desire to be “right” motivates them to jump to the top money manager when he’s hot, only to go through a big string of losses. It’s all the same thing. Psychologically, if you don’t come to grips with your obstacles and embrace them, you will simply find another way to repeat them. Realize that the walls occur because they are there for you to bump into. When you accept this fact and embrace it, you’ll accept bumping into walls. And strangely enough, you hardly even notice that the walls are there. The result will be a new level of success in the markets.” (Source: Vantharp.com) MANAGING TRADES WITH THE GOLDEN RULES As it has been said before, trading principles that work are timeless, and we use some of them in this non-directional trading methodology. Let us examine a few of them: Cut your losses short: This strategy works because we have mastered the art of cutting losses. We cut as many losses as we sustain, as we don’t give them enough breathing space. Once it is clear that a trade is not going in our direction, we truncate it. We truncate as many losses as we see. If you don’t like cutting losses, you can experience occasional wins, but you’ll end up being frustrated and your trading career won’t last long. There is no wisdom in allowing your losses to become bigger. This is a positive expectancy system since losses are often smaller than profits. If a strategy generates losses that are bigger than profits, then that is a negative expectancy system, just like scalping strategies which usually have large SLs and tight TPs (a few losses will wipe away most or all previous numerous profits). Cutting your profits and running your losses is counter-intuitive and counter-productive. Let your profits run: Once we make profits, we give them enough leeway. Since we know that a profitable trading system is the one whose average profits are bigger than its average losses, we leave our profits in an attempt to make them bigger. The only way to stay forever victorious as traders is to make more money during winning streaks than what is lost during losing streaks. Safe positing sizing: That is the part of the system that tells how much to risk per trade. Our positing size is always small. If you risk big, you will eventually lose big. If you risk small, you can then go for small and consistent profits. Never let your profit turn into loss: That is straightforward. Once you make decent profits, you have to protect them, and never allow them to turn into losses. Breakeven and trailing stops come in handy in this aspect. However, we use only breakeven stops to make our position risk-free once we make decent profits. EXECUTING THE STRATEGY Although the actual entries and exits rules for this non-directional crypto trading strategy are not revealed here, the Golden Rules above are part of the rules we use to implement the strategy. This gives us a huge edge! Moreover, this particular method of approaching the market is not used for generating crypto signals. Rather, it is used for our private accounts management. CONCLUSION In part 1 of this series, we discuss the best way to discover and invest in cryptos that will perform very well in the future. In part 2, we discuss a position cum swing crypto trading strategy that enables us to find rare, high-quality opportunities and dive in. This part 3 and the final in the series, has examined ways to make money regardless of the directions of crypto markets. Source: https://learn2.trade
  18. DeFi Coin (DEFC) Price Analysis – August 14 After last month’s fall paused on the approach to daily cloud base and subsequent positive finish, the DEFC continues to consolidate its position in early August as recovery sustains, buyers are adding additional evidence to cement reversal. On July 31, the team said it will lock in DeFi Coin Liquidity for a one-year contract within 72 hours. Locking liquidity not only protects trade volume but also demonstrates a commitment to the DeFi Coin Protocol. Key Levels Supply Levels: $2.186, $1.500, $1.277 Demand Levels: $0.661, $0.500, $0.075 DeFi Coin (DEFC) 12-Hour Chart: Ranging The DeFi Coin (DEFC) will most likely rebound from the ascending trendline support around the $0.833 level before recovering to the $1.277 resistance level, according to the price most likely scenario. Alternatively, until a new fundamental catalyst arises to prompt a range breach, the DEFC could remain range-bound between $0.661 and $1.277. However, the positive relative strength index (RSI) price divergence in the coin is still extending up to $1.500. This raises the probability of the coin rallying to rise in the medium run. A notable entry for the DEFC will be on a bounce off the ascending trendline at $0.833 or on a reach of the horizontal support level at $0.661 if a short decline occurs. Source: https://deficoins.io/

  20. Investing in the Cryptocurrency Industry Based on Sectoral Divisions: A Complete Guide With the growing boom in the cryptocurrency industry and the fear of missing out on a trending investment, many investors buy into crypto projects without knowing what they are or do. While cryptocurrencies are trendy and very profitable, it helps to know exactly what it is you are venturing into. In this article, we will dive into the different kinds of cryptocurrency available in the market and what they entail. Let’s get right into it! Sectoral Division of Cryptocurrency Understanding the concept behind a digital asset and having insight into the seasonal cycle or beneficial undertones of that asset puts you, as an investor, ahead of the game. The key concepts behind cryptocurrencies classify them into niche sectors, giving them unique investment potentials. Listed below are the different classifications (sectors) of cryptocurrency: Store of Value (SoV) As the name implies, stores of values are cryptocurrencies that serve as a reserve or hedge assets against inflation. A store of value is an excellent investment tool and is highly recommended for fledgling investors. Currently, only Bitcoin (BTC) falls into the SoV category. While Bitcoin is yet to reach its full potential, it has gained recognition as a store of value and is sometimes referred to as “digital gold.” This explains why many companies store a percentage of their cash reserves in Bitcoin. Investment Recommendation: Excellent Distributed Computing Distributed computing cryptocurrencies, also called blockchain platforms, are the next most reliable crypto investment options being the SoV category (Bitcoin). This category involves cryptocurrency ecosystems, where developers build and distribute other cryptocurrencies. The future of the crypto industry relies heavily on this category, giving them a healthy level of durability and staying power in the financial industry. The most prominent cryptocurrency in this category is Ethereum (ETH). Ethereum hosts a vast amount of developers, crypto assets, and crypto products and applications. Other top contenders in this category include Binance Smart Chain (BNB), Cardano (ADA), Tron (TRX), and several others. Investment Recommendation: Excellent Financial Services One of the latest booms in the crypto industry is Decentralized Finance (DeFi), which has grown to a +100 billion dollar industry in just a year. While the sector involves many technicalities and niche knowledge, the payouts are worth the stress. Several reports have noted that DeFi is the future of finance due to its efficiency as a financial tool. While investing in the DeFi sector (Financial Services) is relatively riskier than most other crypto-based investments, the profit potentials make it worthwhile. Some prominent DeFi projects currently killing it in the market include Uniswap (UNI), Chainlink (LINK), Avalanche (AVAX), Aave (AAVE), PancakeSwap (CAKE), Maker (MKR), Compound (COMP), yearn.finance (YFI), and many others. Investment Recommendation: Excellent Exchange Tokens Exchange tokens are cryptocurrencies used on blockchain ecosystems for a variety of purposes including, facilitating transactions, staking, voting, and many other functions. Most cryptocurrencies in the distributed computing sector fall into this category. However, traditional exchanges are difficult to operate given the continual risk of legal and regulatory challenges. Regardless, exchange tokens can be lucrative crypto ventures. Investments Recommendation: Good Stablecoins Stablecoins, one of the fastest-growing sectors in the crypto industry, are digital currencies pegged to real-world assets (usually the US dollar). Because stablecoins are (usually) pegged to the dollar (meaning they mirror the dollar’s price action), they do not possess the typical volatility that comes with digital currencies. That said, stablecoins are not ideal for profit-making ventures and can only get used as a reserve due to their non-risk nature. Some examples of stablecoins include USDT (Tether), USDC (USD Coin), BUSD (Binance USD), DAI (Dai), TUSD (True USD), and many more. Investment Recommendation: Good Gaming In some sense, blockchain economies are similar to video game economies, where you purchase real money to purchase virtual goods for the game. One popular gaming-like Crypto project is Decentraland (MANA), which allows users to buy virtual assets in a fully immersive VR world. Instead of purchasing real-world assets like real estate, the user could acquire virtual real estate in Decentraland. While we cannot say for sure that Decentraland will still exist in the next ten years, virtual real estate is staying a trend of the future. Investment Recommendation: Good Meta Chains These are crypto-based projects that provide network interoperability between blockchains, much like how there are companies that provide interoperability between Windows and Mac OS. For example, meta chain protects can facilitate data exchange between the Ethereum and Cardano blockchains. Investment Recommendation: Good Meme Coins Over the last few months, the crypto industry has witnessed the rise (and sometimes fall) of a new breed of digital assets known as meme coins. Typically, meme coins possess no intrinsic value and often serve no purpose. As the name implies, they are digital assets created around jokes, images, or social media trends. Not surprisingly, this category of cryptocurrency is the most volatile amongst other categories, as that is the whole idea behind them. While they usually lack a healthy community who believe in the technology behind the project, this crypto category relies on internet hype and promotion from influential personalities like Elon Musk. Meme coins are often restricted to a few exchanges due to their unrestrained nature. We have seen meteoric rises and dips in several meme coins over the past few months, including the likes of Dogecoin (DOGE), Shiba Inu (SHIB), SafeMoon (SAFEMOON), and several others. While many investors avoid meme coins because of their volatile nature, the payoffs are usually worth the risk. Investment Recommendation: Good Privacy Coins While they claim to be anonymous, Bitcoin and other mainstream cryptocurrency are not completely anonymous. Transaction histories on mainstream cryptocurrencies are readily available to anyone interested in viewing it. With privacy coins, however, it is a different story. Transaction histories are totally out of reach from inquirers. While transactions are used for legitimate purposes, like protection of privacy or avoidance of tyrannical governments, they are heavily used for shady transactions. This places privacy coins in a position where widespread or mainstream adoption is unlikely. Investment Recommendation: Poor Layer 2 ETH Solutions Layer 2 ETH solutions are crypto projects built on top of a blockchain and require no changes to the Layer 1 network (Layer 1 refers to the underlying blockchain architecture being used and changes to this network are cashed Layer 1 solutions. Examples include Bitcoin and Ethereum). While Layer 2 solutions have to leverage the security of the consensus mechanism of the host Layer 1 network, they are capable of increasing transaction speeds dramatically. On average, Ethereum’s Layer 1 can handle about 15 transactions per second, while Layer 2 projects can facilitate up to 4,000 transactions per second. Some examples of Layer 2 ETH solutions include Polygon (MATIC), OMG Network (OMG), Cartesi (CTSI), and many others. Investment Recommendation: Good Conclusion The primary objective of an investment-based venture (like trading cryptos), above everything else, is to realize profits. That said, it is advisable to take time in understanding exactly what it is you might be putting your capital into to give you a better knowledgeability grasp of your investment of choice. Investing in the crypto sector based on a sectoral perspective gives you an edge over the rest of the market. Source: https://learn2.trade

  23. EURJPY Hovers Past Mid 129.00 Level As EURO Limits Losses After ECB EURJPY Price Analysis – July 27 The EURJPY cross stays on track to recover the prior day’s loss after a rebound from the mid 129.00 level during Friday’s European session. The selling pressure in the yen keeps the recovery in EURJPY well and sound at the FX market weekly close. The ECB meeting has helped investors maintain an optimistic outlook on the EURO. Key Levels Resistance Levels: 132.00, 131.00, 130.00 Support Levels: 129.02, 128.00, 127.07 EURJPY Long term Trend: RangingIn a broader sense, a rise from level 121.61 is considered as a medium to long-term rising phase inside a long-term sideways trend. A further gain is expected as long as the weekly low at 128.59 support level holds. On the other side, a drop beneath the level at 128.59 weekly low may reveal the 128.21-128.29 range (monthly low-levels Mar.2021) and then level 128.00. Even so, the continuous breach of the 128.00 level may imply that growth has been accomplished from the 121.61 level, refocusing attention on this low. EURJPY Short term Trend: Ranging At the moment the intraday bias in EURJPY remains slightly to the downside. The present rally may aim for a sustained rebound from 128.59 to 131.00 levels. To suggest short-term topping, a breach of 128.50 support level is necessary on the downside. Alternatively, forecast in the event of a retreat may stay bullish. Nonetheless, a clear breach might see resistance next at the 131.27 level. Near-term support shifts to level 129.02, then level 129.62 which typically holds higher for retaining the initial risk. A breach may see a reversal to level 128.59 but with anticipated fresh buyers below. Source: https://learn2.trade
