A Multitude of Allegations Against FTX

According to the lawsuit, the defendants were caught red-handed attempting to manipulate the prices of Bitcoin futures on Binance. The defendants reportedly dumped futures contracts worth 255 BTC in an attempt to produce an “artificial price move that would trigger cascading execution of stop-loss orders and liquidations of futures long positions.”

Besides this, the plaintiff alleges that the defendants used multiple brokerage accounts to manipulate the market using methods that have been previously deemed illegal by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). Additionally, FTX is accused of running an unlicensed money transmitting business with its OTC desk, while claiming that FTX sold around 50 million FTX tokens (FTT) to U.S. citizens at steep discounts.

The plaintiff BMA is currently seeking exemplary and punitive damages against all defendants, totaling $150 million.

So when you read in the above review..... 'FTX has also built a name for itself in China despite china’s anti-crypto stance. The coins will be available to traders as a perpetual futures contract while providing a leverage time value of more than a hundred'.

.....You know they are targeting the usual brain dead idiots that lose their money and come crying here when they can't withdraw funds.

 

Any fkn stupid questions?

Tips On How Best To Handle Bitcoin Market Crashes

In a scenario where the price of Bitcoin is crashing, what would be the best reactions to take?

Below are a few things an investor can do to weather the storms of a market crash.

 

Maintain a Calm State of Mind

Trading Bitcoin mandates that one has a disciplined mind state, meaning that your emotions must be in check at all times. Allowing your emotions to cloud your judgment in unfavorable market conditions is never the best option and in most cases, ends in disappointment and regrets. What you should do instead is take a break, evaluate what is happening and make logical decisions.

Most times, it is best to do nothing rather than taking an action that might end up going against you.

 

Try Not to Obsess

Sitting in front of your screens all day is not going to change anything happening in the markets. Spending time making analysis and plotting charts is fine, but don’t waste hours obsessing over the predicament you might be facing. It is advisable to engage yourself with something more constructive.

However, if you still have to trade, select a limit order and move on to something else.

 

Do Not Lose Focus of the Main Aim

The fact that Bitcoin may be facing a crash at a time does not mean that the overall demand for Bitcoin is gone, it is usually just a temporary downturn. The crypto market possesses the most assorted investor base of any other sector, it is safe to say that the market will almost certainly bounce back.

Always adhere to your trading strategy. Do not let the current situation drive you to make drastic trading decisions only for the market to turn around days later, causing you further losses or opportunities.

The crypto market is an extremely erratic playing field and huge plunges and rallies are always expected.

EOS Begins A Gradual Rally; Can It Reach The Resistance Level At $6?

 

Key Resistance Levels: $5, $6, $7

Key Support Levels: $3, $2,$1

 

EOS Price Long-term Trend: Bullish

EOS is in a bullish move but it is encountering penetration at the $3.70 price level. The market pulls back and continues to trade below $3.70. EOS has made concerted efforts at the resistance so as to move up the price ladder.

 

Previously, the bulls have successfully prevailed over the downtrend line as the coin moves up. Similarly, if the current resistance level is surmounted, the coin will move up again to either $4.60 or $5 price level. Nonetheless, if EOS fails to move up, the coin will fall and find support at $3.20.

 

EOSUSD - Daily Chart

Daily Chart Indicators Reading:

The RSI period 14 levels 58 signify that EOS is falling and approaching the sideways trend zone. EOS is at the point of a bullish crossover which means that EOS may rise. The downtrend line has already been broken as the market went up. It is unlikely for the selling pressure to resume and price fall below the downtrend line. If it does price may retrace to a low of $ 3.20.

 

EOS/USD Medium-term bias: Bullish

On the 4-hour chart, the EOS fell to a low of $2.60 in September and October to resume a bullish move. In September, the market went up but was resisted and it dropped to another low at $2.60.

 

At this low, a trend line is drawn to establish the level of price movement. The uptrend is said to be continuing if the price makes higher highs and higher lows. Nevertheless, if the market falls and breaks below the trend line, the uptrend is said to be ended.

 

EOSUSD- 4-Hour Chart

4-hour Chart Indicators Reading

EOS is below 40% of the stochastic indicator signifying that price is in a bearish momentum. The EMAs are trending upward suggesting that EOS is rising.

 

General Outlook for EOS

EOS is in a bullish market. At a low of $2.60 in September the bull market was short-lived as it was terminated at $3.20 price level. The bulls embarked on another bullish move in October but faced another resistance at $3.70 after breaking the initial resistance at $3.20.

 

As already indicated in the price analysis, EOS may move up, if it takes care of $3.70 price level. However, on the 4-hour chart, if EOS pulls back and breaks below the trend line, the market will drop again.

Key Resistance levels: $220, $240, $260

BSV/USD Long-term Trend: Bullish
Bitcoin SV is making a surprising upward move after surviving a downtrend from the overhead resistance at $150. The coin fell to a low of $92 and commenced a bullish move. The price upward move can be sustained if the bulls overcome the initial resistance at $115 and $ 120.

Presently, the coin is trading at $108, attempting to break above the previous low in July. In July, the previous low was supported as the market moved up to the $180 price level. Today, the previous low is a resistance level, the price has to break above that low and close. However, BSV will fall to the low of $80, if the bulls fail to break the initial resistance levels.

BSVUSD-Daily Chart

Daily Chart Indicators Reading:
Bitcoin SV is in a bullish momentum above 20% range of the daily stochastic. The market is expected to rise and revisit the previous high of $140. The rise of BSV is depended upon the bulls breaking above the 21-day and 50-day SMAs. The price will be in the bullish trend zone if the price is above the SMAs.

BSV/USD Medium-term bias: Bullish
On the 4-hour chart, the price tested the support above $92 before embarking on the bullish movement. The formation is in the form of a bullish double bottom indicating that the coin is likely to rise. The coin is expected to rise above the $120 and retest the overhead resistance at $140.

USDCHF: Upside Momentum Attempt At Parity Losses Steam, Running Into Sellers

USDCHF Price Analysis – November 26

The USDCHF reached a new daily high of the level at 0.9987 at the start of the European session but failed to maintain momentum as investors refrained from taking important positions pending further developments on the trade dispute between the United States and China. At the time of writing, the pair was up 0.07% on the day on the level at 0.9970.

Key Levels

Resistance Levels: 1.0231, 1.0126, 1.0027
Support Levels: 0.9869, 0.9798, 0.9659

USDCHF-DAILY-Nov-26.png

USDCHF Long term Trend: Bullish

Overall, only the medium-term trend stays neutral, with USDCHF remaining in the range of the level at 0.9659 / 1.0231. In all cases, a decisive break of the level at 1.0231 is needed to indicate a recovery of the uptrend.

Otherwise, a more parallel trend may lead to another plunge. Meanwhile, the support break of the level at 0.9890 may instead target support on the level at 0.9841. The outlook is bullish, displaying yet an intact uptrend in the short and long-term trend.

USDCHF-4-HOUR-Nov-26.png

USDCHF Short term Trend: Bullish

The USDCHF is losing ground from the upside, as shown by the 4-hour RSI. But with minor support intact on the level at 0.9949, the intraday bias stays slightly higher. Consolidation starting on the level at 1.0027 should end at the level at 0.9869.

A new advance may be seen to test the level at 1.0027 again first. While a break there may resume its total advance from the level at 0.9659 to retracement from the level at 1.0237 to 0.9659 to 1.0126. On the flip side, a break of the level at 0.9949 minor support may tip the balance forward to extend the consolidation with another foot down.

GBPUSD Price: Following Recouping From The Low, British Pound Anticipates Upward Momentum

GBPUSD Price Analysis – December 1

The pound had a positive prior week as traders anticipate to build the scenario for buyers to step in, and now it seems likely to continue on the upside. If we can exceed the crucial level on the level at 1.3012, it is likely that the pound sterling takes off towards the level of 1.3185, and then possibly even the level of 1.3301 depending on the extent buyers push the FX pair.

Key Levels
Resistance Levels: 1.3301, 1.3185, 1.3012
Support Levels: 1.2768, 1.2582, 1.1958

GBPUSD-Daily-Dec-1.png

GBPUSD Long term Trend: Bullish

In the longer term, the increase from the level at 1.1958 is viewed as consolidation from beneath. A new advance towards resistance on the level at 1.3301 may be seen. At the moment, this may continue to be the preferred scenario as long as the level at 1.2582 resistance turned support stays intact.

However, the firm break of the level at 1.2582 may shift the target towards the level at 1.1958 low and further beneath. The outlook stays bullish, displaying an intact uptrend in the short and long-term.

GBPUSD-4-Hour-Dec-1.png

GBPUSD Short term Trend: Bullish

GBPUSD remained in consolidation since hitting the level at 1.3012 in the prior week while the trend is unaltered. The initial bias may stay neutral initially for this week. The retracement may be limited by the level at 1.2768 support.

Although on the positive side, the break of the level at 1.3012 may reactivate the entire rally from the level at 1.1958. However, the break of the level at 1.2768 may advance a further plunge to the level at 1.2582 resistance turned support.

Sterling Advances Barely Hours To UK Elections As Latest Poll Predicts Conservatives Win

In just two days from now, a major event that will set the trend for the currency market for the year 2020, the UK elections will be held. In the face of a Brexit extension, UK prime minister had pushed for an earlier election in the hopes of having a majority conservatives win in the parliament which will make the Brexit deal pass through easily.

As the clock ticks, with barely less than 48 hours to this epochal event, the newest poll by Survation conducted for ITV’s good morning Britain show predicts a Boris Johnson win by 14 pts. ahead of Jeremy Corbyn‘s Labour party. The Brexit deal seemed to give the conservatives an edge as it accounted for 32% of the vote decision while NHS gave Labour party a slight edge. On the overall, a majority vote of 42% was predicted for the conservatives while Labour had 28%.

Market Reaction as the Clock Ticks
Optimism looms in the market as the prediction of a conservatives win will ease Britain’s exit from Europe by January 31 deadline.

The EUR/GBP pair continued to fall till the early hours of today breaking the 0.8411 trend line targeting the 0.8149 resistance level. GBP/USD pair rebounded to consolidate briefly targeting 1.3381 resistance levels. Technical analysis within a 4-hour MACD shows that both pairs may likely touch down. CAD edged slightly higher advanced by USMCA news but yet to consolidate gains.

Market-Reaction.png

The USD against a basket of five major currencies held steady awaiting FOMC’s minutes due out tomorrow.

Against a basket of currencies, NZD’s dominance is the highest. Sterling also gained momentum firmed up by approaching UK elections.

The safe-haven, the Japanese yen, and Swiss franc remain pressured as major events that will shape the market for 2020 are been anticipated.

On the Asia side, significant market activity wasn’t recorded as most currency pairs held steady within a day’s range.

In the Asian stock market, not so much activity was recorded being weakened by recently released Chinese PMI numbers.

Most of the indexes closed a little lower while US stocks rose swiftly after Friday’s release of US non-farm payroll reports. The outcome of the December 15 deadline set by the US for the signing of a preliminary trade pact will determine the week’s direction and even further into the year 2020.

Also due out later in the week is UK GDP figures and ZEW released out of Germany.

GBP/USD pair rebounded to consolidate briefly targeting 1.3381 resistance levels. Technical analysis within a 4-hour MACD shows that both pairs may likely touch down. CAD edged slightly higher advanced by USMCA news but yet to consolidate gains. The USD against a basket of five major currencies held steady awaiting FOMC’s minutes due out tomorrow. Against a basket of currencies, NZD’s dominance is the highest. Sterling also gained momentum firmed up by approaching UK elections. The safe-haven, the Japanese yen, and Swiss franc remain pressured as major events that will shape the market for 2020 are been anticipated. On the Asia side, significant market activity wasn’t recorded as most currency pairs held steady within a day’s range. In the Asian stock market, not so much activity was recorded being weakened by recently released Chinese PMI numbers. Most of the indexes closed a little lower while US stocks rose swiftly after Friday’s release of US non-farm payroll reports. The outcome of the December 15 deadline set by the US for the signing of a preliminary trade pact will determine the week’s direction and even further into the year 2020. Also due out later in the week is UK GDP figures and ZEW released out of Germany.
    • Date : 11th December 2019. FOMC Preview – 11th December 2019. FOMC Preview No policy changes or surprises are expected with today’s announcement (19:00 GMT) and Chair Powell’s press conference 30 minutes later. It will be interesting to see if, as expected, the voting is unanimous this time round. The FOMC members have expressed significant differences of opinion during 2019 as three rate cuts were implemented.  The apparent paradox of low unemployment and low inflation, the new “norm”. The two-digit unemployment rate (U-3) in November edged down to 3.53% from 3.56% in October, and a 3.52% cycle-low in September, all below the 3.58% prior cycle-low in April and a 4.00% rate at the beginning of the year. Current readings remain much lower than the 4.2% long-run unemployment rate projection noted in the September SEP, it is expected that this estimate will be trimmed today. Headline CPI rose 0.4% in October while the core index rose by 0.2%, for respective y/y gains of 1.8% and 2.3%, versus September figures of 1.7% and 2.4%. Today the November headline is expected to fall again to 0.2% and the core remains flat at 0.2% too. The Fed’s favoured inflation gauge, the PCE chain price measure, rose 1.3% y/y in October and expectations are for an uptick to 1.4% in November. The core PCE chain price measure rose 1.6% y/y in November, versus 1.7% in September, and expectations are for the pace to hold at 1.6% in November. The FOMC’s latest median estimates for 2019 inflation are 1.5% for the headline and 1.8% for the core. Hence, the focus will be on the Fed’s new quarterly forecasts, with expectations raised and likely to be mostly bullish results with a bump up in the median growth projection and a drop in the median dot to reflect a steady stance through 2020. However, the individual dots are likely to show both, forecasts for cuts and hikes. Chair Powell is expected to reiterate the US economy and policy are in a “good place,” (a phrase he has used a number of times lately) and could sound a little more upbeat after the strong jobs report. But, he will continue to warn of downside risks. The FOMC isn’t likely to announce any new measures on reserve management operations (QE?) or a repo facility. All steady into 2020 and beyond. USDIndex remains biased to the down side but has support around 97.40 and the 200-day moving average. A breach of this key support zone brings in 97.00 and the October low of 96.85. A break over 97.80 (the confluence of the 20 and 50-day moving averages) and 98.00 would be required before a re-test of the recent high at 98.50 could be considered.
