Hi traders, let's look at Bitcoin.

Bitcoin.


Not much has changed since last week.

Bitcoin is accumulating on low volatility...

... while the rest of the market stands quiet:

...public awareness is at its lowest since April 2018:

... and OTC activity is supposedly increasing:

... which could suggest that institutions are already investing.

Take a look at what has happened in the past 2 months:

ICE's BAKKT is indeed right around the corner and soon people be able to spend their Bitcoin via the Starbucks app (which will immediately convert it to fiat) which is the most used payment app in the US.

Finally, the FATF has pushed back its framework for crypto AML regulation to be released by June 2019, leaving plenty of breathing room for the market to develop and appeasing the threat of a regulatory crackdown on the crypto industry.

Strategy.


We haven't changed our thesis:

  1. Avoid trading the chops as Bitcoin is grinding at the bottom, instead accumulate your favorite coins at discount.
  2. Keep your eyes on the S&P500 for signs of correlation with the stock market (especially in the event of a dead-cat bounce).

Until then,
