Sally Ho's Technical Analysis 18 July 2019

Sally Ho's Technical Analysis 18 July 2019

Bitcoin

Bitcoin (BTC/USD) failed to sustain some short-lived gains early in today’s Asian session as the pair fell back to the 9583.88 area after trading as high as the 9998.00 level during yesterday’s North American session.  Traders were unable to push the pair back above the psychologically-important 10,000.00 figure, again calling into question the market’s short-term bias. During yesterday’s European session, BTC/USD traded as low as the 9,071.00 area as the pair managed to remain above the 9,009.65 area, representing the 76.4% retracement of the move from 7,508.77 to 13,868.44.

Chartists are anticipating some Stops that are likely to be in place below the 8919.72 area, a level that was technically relevant on 18 June.  Below this level, the 8488 area is another important level that will be watched as it represents a relative historical high. Technicians are now eyeing some downside price extension objectives that include the 9323, 9146, and 8694 areas.  If those levels give way, the 7945, 7629, and 6312 levels will be in play with some BTC/USD bears also focused on the 4184 area.

Price activity is nearest the 200-bar MA (4-hourly) at 10,851.63 and the 50-bar MA (Hourly) at 9,973.31.

Technical Support is expected around 9,009.65/ 8,488.00/ 8203.91 with Stops expected below.

Technical Resistance is expected around 10,367.06/ 10,646.32/ 11,510.44 with Stops expected above.

On 4-Hourly chart, SlowK is Bullishly above SlowD while MACD is Bearishly below MACDAverage.

On 60-minute chart, SlowK is Bearishly below SlowD while MACD is Bullishly above MACDAverage.

 

Ethereum

Ethereum (ETH/USD) weakened early in today’s Asian session, dropping to the 206.68 area after running out of steam around the 221.00 level during yesterday’s North American session. The pair stopped short of testing the 222.55 area, representing the 50% retracement of the move from 80.60 to 364.49. The next downside level related to this range is the 189.05 area, followed by the 147.60 level.

ETH/USD bears are eyeing some important downside price extension objective targets, one of which was the 191.38 area that was twice tested during yesterday’s trading activity. Below this area, the 183.84, 152.08, and 142.22 levels represent important downside levels. Extreme bears expect ETH/USD could weaken to around the 100.59 area. Stops are likely to be in place below these key downside price objective targets.

Price activity is nearest the 50-bar MA (4-hourly) at 251.63 and the 50-bar MA (Hourly) at 211.84.

Technical Support is expected around 183.33/ 165.25/ 157.28 with Stops expected below.

Technical Resistance is expected around 221.00/ 236.43/ 257.22 with Stops expected above.

On 4-Hourly chart, SlowK is Bullishly above SlowD while MACD is Bullishly above MACDAverage.

On 60-minute chart, SlowK is Bearishly below SlowD while MACD is Bullishly above MACDAverage.

Joseph Lubin of ConsenSys discusses Ethereum 2.0 stating it will “Devour“ the network

Joseph Lubin of ConsenSys discusses Ethereum 2.0 stating it will “Devour“ the network

Quick take

1 minute read

  • Joseph Lubin contributor to Ethereum and founder of ConsenSys recently spoke during the Ethereum in the enterprise Asia-Pacific 2020 conference this week. 
  • During the conference, he predicted that Ethereum 2.0 is going to “devour“ the network in the short term.

Joseph Lubin contributor to Ethereum and founder of ConsenSys recently spoke during the Ethereum in the enterprise Asia-Pacific 2020 conference this week. During the conference, he predicted that Ethereum 2.0 is going to “devour“ the network in the short term.

He said:

“People in the know around the ecosystem are very optimistic about how fast things could unfold, as the really complicated work has been done in launching Phase 0.”

Joseph went on to say that the rollout of Ethereum 2.0 is “proceeding in parallel”. Essentially, this means that upgrades to the network could come quicker than many people are predicting.

He added:

“It is very likely will get a tremendous amount of data availability in the form of shards, as well as move lots of the important functionality from Ethereum 1 to Ethereum 2.0, and essentially see Ethereum 2.0 absorb Ethereum 1 in the not too distant future.”

Furthermore, he went on to predict that the next phase for 2.0 will become live in up to 12 months from now adding that the coming increasing amount of data availability will give way for layer two networks which will help them massively increase the amount of transactions per second that can be offered.

“Essentially Ethereum 2.0 represents a massive increase in scalability, so we’re already achieving tremendous scalability with layer-two networks.”

Ethereum 2.0 beacon chain launches introducing the network into phase 0

Ethereum 2.0 beacon chain launches introducing the network into phase 0

Quick take

1 minute read

  • The first phase of Ethereum 2.0 phase goes live.
  • Excitement flows throughout the community.

Excitement is roaring throughout the Ethereum community this week as the beacon chain was launched bringing in phase 0 for Ethereum 2.0.

With the introduction of this phase, the network for Ethereum has a new system in which the mode of operations is switched from the current proof of work system to a proof of stake network.

One of the biggest things that this will help with is scalability that Ethereum has had an issue with for a long time now.

The launch of 2.0 has been highly anticipated throughout the industry for a long time now. Over a year in fact, as many people thought it was going to go live in December 2019. Due to many setbacks and delays, this didn’t go to plan and ended up being postponed until this month instead.

A researcher working with the foundation for Ethereum, Danny Ryan has recently said that the development and the final launch of 2.0 has been quite a journey, to say the least.

The team at the project are expecting at least 2/3 participation rate on the network which would mean that the network system would be in good health and have a prominent future.

It will be interesting to see the future of 2.0 and how it expands over time.
