Bitcoin is still holding on above $8,000 but the bear pressure seems higher this time. It's gonna be an interesting weekend.


At the moment of writing, STEEM was trading, on average, at $2.74 on Coinmarketcap, slightly down from yesterday.

The 1 hour chart shows sideways trading in the 33k - 36k satoshis corridor

The 1 day chart shows that SBD is still looking bearish, still needing to shave at least $1.2 until it reaches the peg

Overall opinion: Markets seem very undecided and the much expected Consensus conference didn't bring the predicted spike. It's still early, though, and the effects of that event may still unfold a bit later. The decoupling between STEEM and SBD continues.

Bear trend keeps in place. Bitcoin has punched the $8000 level and it may reach the $7800 support line and if that line does not stop the trend, we might see the price reaching the $6500 level again.

EOS has reached the 62% retracement Fibonacci line from the previous uptrend on the daily chart. Markets seem to be in little trading range showing indecision and deciding if bulls will push up or bears will continue to move further down.

Finally, STEEM seems to be stabilized around the 34K satoshi. But the price could be approaching the 32K line again

As bitcoin price keeps going down the STEEM/USD chart shows downtrend still in place with a support on the $2,55 level. The 4hr chart shows some dojis and that could be an indicator of reversal.

I looks like it's gonna be a rough weekend.

Red times incomming! :)
Good. We can buy moar!

That's the spirit!

EOS dropped to 12$,
The market situation is not understandable.
I never expected this dip.
but hopping for good,

Thanks for the update friend, market is still yet to stabilize, hopefully next week

I don’t seem to have a hold of what’s really happening anymore. I thought the recent eventful days would fear things up. Maybe not yet. I’ll just hang on and wait

Steem and sbd holding hands tightly in this situation ;p

if bitcoin goes to $6500, it really great chance to buy some.

The updates you provide on cryptos are always extremely helpful and I appreciate. It helps me navigate through the crowded market

The coming hours will be very important for steem as we are closely following the BTC and that the BTC pattern is less positive...

All the price of crypto coins getting down.So I think it's best time to buy btc,steem,sbd.

Bearish markets on the line here. It's a matter of patience, we will get through this hopefully. The bad times are going to ens

Hi @dragosroua. I haven't exchanged SBD for Steem for a while now since I'd getting less than 1 Steem. What has to happen in order for me to get at least 1 Steem for my SBD? I thought it was to do with the gap between them but it doesn't seem to be that.

Thanks for the update man
Looks like rough days ahead but we’d survive
Yes we will
