Bitcoin No Longer Seen as the Driving Force in Crypto Market [bloomberg.com]

Bitcoin has plunged more than 30% since hitting a year-to-date high. That fact is clear, but explaining why the world’s largest digital currency has lost momentum in the second half of the year is anything but.  Some, like JPMorgan Chase & Co. have pointed to Intercontinental Exchange Inc.’s new futures contracts and an unwinding of long positions as likely culprits for the nosedive. Others have pointed to a buildup of technical bearish signals as setting off its summer swoon.

Bitcoin is facing further losses after the bulls failed to capitalize on price gains seen this week. The cryptocurrency’s quick pullback from a 2.5-week high of $8,830 to below $8,400 this morning has invalidated a bullish breakout on the 4-hour chart seen Wednesday, as seen below. The failure to hold above the 200-day moving average (MA) at $8,654 has also weakened the bullish outlook on the daily chart and may have shifted risk in favor of a drop to $8,000 in the next 24 hours.

This transaction notified @whaletrades which sent out the following tweet: While assessing and identifying market trends is no straightforward task, following the money in the way of large transactions can be a very useful indicator. A transaction of this magnitude by a major player followed by a sell may very well be a precursor to a significant dump in the price of Bitcoin. Therefore, keeping track of such transactions by accounts such as @whaletrades can be very helpful in determining the direction of future price movement and predicting rapid increases or decreases.

the avocado-bitcoin correlation

Bitcoin’s status as an uncorrelated asset is about to be revoked, as a scarily close relationship to the price of avocados implies that the digital currency may be about to fall off a cliff. Bitcoin’s performance of late has left a little to be desired, and strangely so has the price of avocados. This relationship was pointed out in a profoundly insightful tweet by Bloomberg’s financial Journalist, Tracy Alloway. A graph depicting the price of Hass avocados and bitcoin shows an eerily similar pattern.
