Bitcoin’s strange dance near its all-time high

Bitcoin is nearing its all-time high again and everyone in the cryptocurrency markets is wondering what is going on here… The daily chart shows the erratic reaction to the SEC decision to disapprove the ETF of the Winklevoss twins. After that, the price came back astonishingly for a few days, but fell again to new […]

Bitcoin ETF damned by the SEC

The SEC has finally decided against the proposed rule change that would have allowed the Winklevoss ETF to be listed and traded on the BATS exchange.

Bitcoin finally made a new all-time high

During the last hours bitcoin advanced through the magic line of about $1170, its all-time high from more than 3 years ago.

Bitcoin’s rally imploded – for now

During the last hours bitcoin crashed more than 20% shortly before making a new all-time high against the dollar.

Overall, that is a less bullish […]

Bitcoin nears all-time high

Bitcoin, the amazing cryptocurrency, has advanced over the last days. Currently it trades around $900 with the all-time high of almost $1200 in sight. The all-time high of BTC/EUR is even more close, because of the decline of the euro against the dollar. As usual, many explanations are circling around. Some have to do with […]

Bitcoin prepares for the next moon shot

After the explosive peak at the end of 2013 bitcoin languished for most of the time. But now it seems to come back! The last weeks brought something like a breakout of a base that formed loosely after bitcoin draw renewed interest half a year ago. The reasons? Bitcoin is a new market and it […]

The Bitcoin miracle

One of the most stunning examples of lofty valuations with reminiscences of the tulip mania is Bitcoin. Below is the Bitcoin chart of the last 5 years.

Oil hits new lows

After worrying Chinese export and import data came out, crude oil dropped to a new low in the current downtrend as seen in this weekly chart. The long-term reasons are still the same.

Bitcoin is warming up for new highs

During the last month a fallen angel has started to rise again: Bitcoin. What actually is the fuel behind the move? As usual with Bitcoin, nobody knows for sure.

Oil rally or brief reversal?

The oil crash just took a breather with an abrupt two day uptrend. Will it go further? Hard to say, as the depressing factors are still in place. Reasons for this short-term rocket are most likely news about an encouraging U.S. growth and the relaxation of international equity markets. There are also reports of an […]

Oil just made new lows as predicted. Time to get on board of a fine trend if you haven’t done so already. The oil market saw new price lows during the last days. There seem to be two main reasons for that: Iran closed the nuclear deal with world powers and is now on the […]

The German Bunds crash

German Bunds are the short of a lifetime, according to Bill Gross, the bond guru. He seems to have called the very low on April 21 (red circle) of the 10yr Bunds as seen here in the daily yield chart. Did he? Or did he rather influence the market with his opinion? In any case, […]

The oil crash

One of the most remarkable trends of the last months is the deep dive of oil. Oil is tanking! One reason is the US and its ability to exploit previously unprofitable repositories. Fracking has led to an oil glut, temporarily at least. The US just became a net exporter of oil after decades of being […]
