Whither Bitcoin? A Review of Past Cycles for the World’s Oldest Cryptocurrency

“I think it’s essential to remember that just about everything is cyclical. There’s little I’m certain of, but these things are true: Cycles always prevail eventually. Nothing goes in one direction forever. Trees don’t grow to the sky. Few things go to zero. And there’s little that’s as dangerous for investor health as insistence on extrapolating today’s events into the future.” - Howard Marks, billionaire investor

Bitcoin drops to lowest since February

The price of Bitcoin has fallen below $6500 to reach its lowest level since February 6. That was a day when it found significant support from around the $6000 mark which led to an eventual recovery to almost $12000 later on in the month. But it doesn’t feel like such a sudden rally will be on the cards again this time.

Cryptocurrency concerns prompt Bitcoin dip below $10K

On a day when markets continued to sell-off sharply, Tuesday’s slide in cryptocurrencies, most notably Bitcoin, was no exception.

Bitcoin stabilizes after plunge, but downside risks remain

Recent volatility in Bitcoin trading has been nothing short of extreme when placed within the context of traditional financial markets. But in the relatively new world of cryptocurrency trading, the recent wild swings in Bitcoin have only been slightly more vigorous than usual.

Cryptocurrency bloodbath: Bitcoin below $12K

Today’s small gain in the dollar or the fall in the pound following the publication of UK inflation data was nothing compared to the sell-off in crypto currencies.

The Week Ahead: Weak USD, Strong EUR, and BoC-Driven CAD in Focus

The latter half of the past week saw a resumption of pronounced bearish sentiment hit the US dollar once again, as concerns over persistently weak US inflation (reinforced by lagging producer price data), strength in the euro, and rumors of China rethinking its US debt purchases helped lead to a sharp, extended sell-off for the greenback.

Bitcoin collapses to probe demand around key level

Bitcoin goes from how “how high can it go?” to “how low can it go?” in a matter of days. After surging to almost $20,000, the crypto currency has taken a spectacular dive ever since the CME started offering Bitcoin futures at the start of this week.

Can gold make it a hat-trick of forming a major low this December?

Sentiment towards gold has improved over the past week or so. The yellow metal managed to end a run of three-week losing streak last week and has started this one on the front foot, too.

Gold extends drop ahead of US CPI, FOMC

Thanks to the ongoing rally on Wall Street and the dollar’s recent comeback, not to mention the ongoing craze in the cryptos, gold continues to remain largely out of favour

Gold and silver overlooked amid Bitcoin hype

The recent upsurge in Bitcoin and other crypto currencies may have had a direct impact on precious metal prices, if one can assume they are viable substitutes for paper gold and silver.

Bitcoin volatility in the spotlight

Bitcoin continues to capture the attention of many. Given the current price action of the cryptocurrency, headlines are easy to come by, and yesterday was no different. The virtual currency gained over 15% in the early part of the day, charging through $10,000 to a fresh all time high of over $11,000, before plummeting as much as 21%, with incredible speed to $9009.

Bitcoin: still steals volatility limelight

Bitcoin is recovering from one almighty correction last week where it dropped from a high of $7,882 to a low of $5,605 in just three days. That is a drop of nearly 30%, which is technically bear market territory. However, this is Bitcoin and due to this it doesn’t react the way other asset classes do. At the start of this week Bitcoin is up $1,000, and has retraced nearly 50% of last week’s decline.
