Bitcoin Surpasses $51.7K As Analyst Declares Parabolic Advance

It appears to be all systems go for bitcoin as the bulls aim to cement $50,000 as support and set up the ‘new normal’ for BTC/USD. On February 17, 2021, bitcoin hit new highs of over $51,650 as it encountered what Peter Brandt confirms is a “parabolic advance.”

Bitcoin has now entered the uncharted $50,000 zone with data from TradingView showing bitcoin passing the $50K resistance zone again. This time around it continued into uncharted territory. On February 16, bitcoin flirted with $50,000 for the first time in its history. But, the level failed to hold more than just minutes.

With this return above this zone, the biggest crypto is in a ‘parabolic advance’ which is the fourth in its 12-year history, analysts explained. Brandt tweeted alongside an annotated price chart:

“Big picture $BTC Bitcoin is undergoing its third parabolic advance in the past decade. A parabolic advance on an arithmetic scale is extremely rare – three on a log scale is historic.”

While responding to the post, Kraken growth lead Dan Held said that putting into context its initial phase before 2012, there have been four parabolic advances. Brandt said that if the advance is compromised, a correction of 80% is most likely a bearish consequence. That behavior was seen in 2018 after Bitcoin surged to nearly $20,000 and then bottomed out at $3,100 around one year later.

Is This A New Normal?

According to previous reports, several indicators somehow suggest that bitcoin is far from violating any form of this uptrend, being at the start, instead of the end of its bull run. Blockstream CSO Samson Mow declared:

“$50,000 #Bitcoin is the new normal.”

While discussing the new highs, the others noted that macro factors may converge to develop a chain reaction of adoption that may push BTC further into price discovery. One popular Twitter account Documenting Bitcoin added:

“If you think $50,000 a bitcoin is expensive, wait until you hear that the government is about to print $1,900,000,000,000 out of thin air.”

In the meantime, data shows that bitcoin has taken the momentum out of altcoin growth with its moves in the past several days, with all of the top-10 cryptos except Polkadot (DOT) experiencing sideways price action.

Bitcoin vaults above $50,000 for first time ever

Bitcoin rose above $50,000 on Tuesday to a new record high, building on a rally fuelled by signs that the world's biggest cryptocurrency is gaining acceptance amongst mainstream investors.

Bitcoin hit a new high of $50,602, and was last up 5% at $50,300. It has risen around 72% so far this year, with most of the gains coming after electric carmaker Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) said it had bought $1.5 billion in bitcoin.

It also said it would accept the currency as payment.

But Tesla was only the latest in a string of large investments that have vaulted bitcoin from the fringes of finance to company balance sheets and Wall Street dealing desks, as U.S. firms and traditional money managers have started to buy a lot of it.

"The recent market conditions and events both in the crypto space and the financial world at large put such a price movement within the realm of possibility," said Jacob Skaaning of crypto hedge fund ARK36.

"However, I'd like to offer a word of caution: while my long-term outlook is bullish, massive price fluctuations along the way are only to be expected. Bitcoin is still extremely volatile."

Smaller cryptocurrency ethereum edged 1.1% higher, just shy of its record high price of $1,874.98.

Bitcoin's Coinbase premium turned negative. Here's what it means for BTC price

Bitcoin’s (BTC) definitive breakout above $50,000 may have to wait longer to materialize as spot buying pressure on Coinbase Pro shows signs of weakening — at least, in the short term.

The Coinbase Premium Index, which measures the gap between the BTC price on Coinbase Pro and Binance, has flipped negative, according to CryptoQuant. In other words, selling pressure on Coinbase appears to be strengthening compared with other exchanges like Binance.

A negative reading on the Coinbase Premium Index could be a precursor to short-term resistance. On the other hand, when the premium is high, it indicates strong spot buying pressure on Coinbase.

Based on the index, CryptoQuant CEO Ki Young Ju believes topping $50,000 “looks pretty tough” in the near term.

“Current buying power doesn’t come from Coinbase,” he added. “No more Coinbase premium compared to Binance/Huobi/OKEx. Be careful.”

Coinbase has become a major bellwether for Bitcoin demand due to its popularity among large, institutional buyers. These market participants acquire their BTC via over-the-counter markets on Coinbase Pro. Although these large purchases don’t immediately impact the BTC price, they signify growing demand for the digital asset and, in turn, diminishing supply. The Coinbase Premium Index, therefore, is one way to gauge institutional demand for BTC in the short term.

A short-term fluctuation in the Coinbase premium doesn’t appear to have any bearing on Bitcoin’s long-term trajectory. The digital asset remains in a strong uptrend, having peaked well north of $49,700 on Sunday, according to TradingView data.

The Bitcoin price has gained a whopping 28% over the past week, thanks in large part to Tesla’s planned acquisition of the asset. Based on the electric vehicle maker’s most recent 10K filing with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission, it plans to allocate roughly 7.7% of its gross cash position to Bitcoin.

Publicly-traded companies and fund managers hold roughly 6% of Bitcoin’s circulating supply — a figure that doesn’t include Tesla’s $1.5 billion position.

Key Bitcoin price metric signals traders are positioned for $50K BTC

Bitcoin (BTC) price posted a 25% gain after this week’s news of Tesla’s $1.5 billion BTC investment came out. Prior to this reveal, BTC was lagging behind Ether’s (ETH) performance by 7.5% but the numerous bullish events of the past few days helped BTC to hit a new all-time high at $48,900.

Previous to Tesla’s announcement, BTC price was trading in the $30,000 to $41,500 range for nearly 3 weeks and once the price broke out one would expect pro traders and arbitrage desks to follow the bullish trend.

Rather than flipping long, many of the top traders opened short positions as BTC commenced its 25% move. This seems risky given that this week Bitcoin received praises from JPMorgan’s co-president and regulators approve a BTC ETF approval in Canada.

Historical data shows that Bitcoin price actions tend to trade in tandem with Ether, which has been strongly bullish for months. Adding to this bullish scenario, Bitcoin's Lightning Network announced a record node count and the total value locked (TVL) surpassed $42 million.

Mastercard also announced that it would support cryptocurrency payments on its network by the end of 2021.

These bullish signals contrast with the long-to-short net positioning metrics provided by major cryptocurrency exchanges.

This indicator is calculated by analyzing the client's consolidated position on the spot, perpetual and futures contracts and it provides a clearer view of whether professional traders are leaning bullish or bearish.

It is important to note that there are occasional discrepancies in the methodologies between various exchanges, so viewers should monitor changes instead of absolute figures.

Since Feb. 8, when the Tesla announcement took place, exchanges' top traders have kept their net positions relatively unchanged.

Before Bitcoin's 25% rally, Binance had a 1.33 ratio favoring longs, which is in line with the previous week. This indicator peaked at 1.53 on Feb. 10, but has since then returned to 1.31.

On the other hand, Huobi top traders had a 0.74 indicator ahead of Feb. 8, which remained flat for three days. On Feb. 11 as BTC rallied from $44,000 to $48,000, these traders began increasing net longs, reaching the current 0.80. Although this level is still favoring net shorts by 20%, it remains above the 0.75 level from Jan. 29.

Lastly, OKEx top traders held a 14% net long position before the Tesla news came out. Although they've reverted to a 47% net short position on that same day, over the last four days the indicator has come back to 1.03. Currently, OKEx traders remain well below the 52% net long position from two weeks ago.

Staking could be capturing top traders

Top traders could have also moved their BTC off-exchange in search of better yield opportunities. Therefore, assuming that they've entered short positions solely by monitoring centralized exchanges' could be a brash conclusion to reach.

As things currently stand, the long-to-short indicator does not show extreme net long positions from arbitrage desks, market makers, and whales. A balanced derivatives market suggests that there’s ample room for buying activity if BTC continues to rally to $50,000 and above.

Best cryptocurrency to invest in February 2021: no BTC or ETH included

Dogecoin (DOGE)

When you ask, What crypto should I invest in, then a good place to start is Dogecoin. The coin actually started as a joke between two programmers at the onset of the Bitcoin hype seven years ago. The token has attained a meme-like status among investors and is another that has been constantly supported on Twitter by Elon Musk. This led to the recent surge in price as it moved from $0.0045 to $0.0735 now.

The coin has also seen celebrity endorsements by Gene Simmons of rock band Kiss, and rapper Snoop Dogg.

Dogecoin may not have any development value but we can’t rule it out being accepted as a form of payment for a social media app at some point. The coin may be volatile and investors should tread carefully when buying after big moves.

Stellar Lumens (XLM)

A coin with momentum in the project development stakes is Stellar Lumens. XLM is currently trading near its all-time highs after fluctuating strongly last year, but it is now moving ahead with some interesting projects.

Recent developments include a $5m investment in Wyre. The company is a leading blockchain payments provider and will allow access to XLM via a host of currency pairs.

Wyre has seen $5bn in transfers executed since 2013 by individual users, businesses and enterprise clients. The platform has also seen growth in users of 260 per cent over the past year and includes compliance and savings accounts. The recent deal could see Stellar operating as a PayPal-style company.

Another recent development for Stellar was the news that the Ukrainian central bank had selected the blockchain for work on its own central bank digital currency (CBDC). Stellar has signed an agreement to be a consultant on the country's potential virtual currencies and a CBDC option.

For investors asking what is the best cryptocurrency to invest in right now, XLM might be a rather good option.

EOS

EOS is a

currency worth looking at because the coin didn’t play a part in last

year’s big rally. It has been top of the Chinese blockchain rankings for

a long time, which is based on its “basic tech, applicability, and

creativity”.

The 2017 high in EOS was around the $22 level and the current price is just above $4. That would provide significant upside should the project move back to the all-time highs as many coins are now doing.

The EOS network hosts smart contracts on Virtual Machines and competes with other Dapp or smart contract blockchains, which includes Ethereum. The ETH platform uses gas to pay for units of computing power, while EOS uses RAM. High gas prices were an obstacle for ETH last summer due to many projects launching their coins on the network and struggling with fees.

News in January saw one of the EOS founders stepping down. It is not yet clear whether this will help or hinder the project as it may choose a new development path.

STEEM

Another coin that featured on the Chinese Ministry of Industry’s blockchain list was STEEM. It is a token used on social media to reward users and it is used on more than 300 Steem-based apps. However, currently the coin is changing hands well below its all-time highs, trading at 250 per cent lower than its levels in 2019.

Nonetheless, STEEM sees more transactions than Bitcoin and Ethereum, while it could see a big increase in value if it was to be used on one of the large social media platforms.

Ripple (XRP)

The final coin to consider when deciding what crypto to buy now is Ripple’s XRP. The project development team is set to defend a lawsuit from the Securities and Exchange Regulator in the US. The SEC claims that XRP is a security and accuses the founders of making an unlisted sale of the security.

The team denies that the coin is a security and the case will be heard on February 22. If XRP gets a favourable ruling then the coin will likely surge to catch up with the price of BTC and others but this will depend on the judges.

The price of XRP is sitting at $0.50 but the record highs for the coin were above $3.00 back in the 2017 rally. BTC has already doubled its own 2017 highs of $20,000.

Crypto market outlook

The cryptocurrency market should see further gains in February but they risk a correction as we go further into March. The Tesla news will add some volumes to the market, but the sector has been on a hot run recently and could look to cool off.

Investors could follow the rally in February-March and perhaps buy into any correction after that.

The

crypto market is one of the hottest investment sectors right now.

However, it involves high levels of risk due to its immense volatility.

We suggest investors and traders exercise caution and do their homework

before investing in any cryptocurrency.



If you are not ready to make long-term investment commitments but want to try to profit from the volatility, you can do so by trading cryptocurrencies with contracts for difference (CFDs).



Trading

CFDs offers the opportunity to capitalise on both bullish and bearish

price fluctuations. You can either hold a long position, speculating

that the price will rise, or a short position, speculating that it will

fall.

Should You Invest in Bitcoin Right Now?

Tesla CEO Elon Musk recently made headlines after announcing that his company bought $1.5 billion worth of Bitcoin (CRYPTO:BTC).

The cryptocurrency has been around for years, but it has surged more than 370% over the past 12 months. Even before Tesla's investment in Bitcoin, Musk himself has been credited with increasing the price of cryptocurrencies by voicing his support online.

Because of its soaring price, Bitcoin may seem like an attractive investment. But is it the right time to buy?
Weighing risk and reward

When you're considering any investment, it's crucial to look past the dollar signs and consider the risk involved.

Bitcoin is an incredibly volatile investment, so it's not for the faint of heart. While it has seen an impressive upward trend over the past several months, nobody knows how long that will last. The cryptocurrency has experienced wild price fluctuations in the past, sometimes losing up to 80% of its value.

Between 2017 and 2019, for instance, Bitcoin jumped from around $1,000 to more than $17,000, before it plummeted back to around $3,000.

While all investments are subject to short-term volatility, Bitcoin has experienced extreme levels of turbulence.

In addition, it's unclear whether Bitcoin really is as game changing as its proponents claim. Some supporters believe the cryptocurrency will become the future of global transactions. Right now, however, only around 2,300 U.S. businesses accept Bitcoin as a form of payment, according to research from Fundera. Without widespread adoption, it will be tough for Bitcoin to survive.

Bitcoin's murky future makes it an even riskier investment. Although it could end up changing the world, it could just as easily crash and burn.
How to invest safely

Bitcoin is an incredibly risky investment that may or may not pay off, so it's probably not the best fit for most people. But if you're eager to invest in the cryptocurrency, it's important to do so safely.

First, make sure you have a well-diversified portfolio. The last thing you want to do is invest all your money in Bitcoin, because if it drops in value (and there is a good chance it will at some point), you could experience devastating losses.

Aim to invest in at least 10 to 15 different companies from multiple industries, or opt for index funds or mutual funds to further limit your risk. Because Bitcoin is so volatile, it's crucial to make sure the rest of your investments are as stable as possible.

Next, only invest money you can afford to lose. This is a good rule of thumb to remember with all investments, but especially the riskier ones. You may not lose money investing in Bitcoin, but it's a good idea to be prepared for the worst just in case.

Bitcoin may be gaining popularity right now, but that alone doesn't make it a smart investment. Before you invest any money, think about your tolerance for risk. If you have money to burn and are willing to risk it, it may be worth the gamble. But for most investors, it's best to steer clear of Bitcoin for right now.

Litecoin Price Prediction | How Much Will Litecoin Rise?

Litecoin In 2021 And The History of LTC

Litecoin’s strongest year in recent history, was 2019 during its halving. The cryptocurrency known as the silver to Bitcoin’s as digital gold rose 600% that year, before crashing back down to retest its bear market bottom.

At the start of 2020, the cryptocurrency began to lead the market once again, causing many began to wonder “why is Litecoin going up” when the rest of the market is stagnant.

After another 140% rally to kick off the new year, once again crypto investors and traders interested in LTC are asking the questions “will Litecoin go up in value,” “how high will Litecoin go,” and “will Litecoin ever reach 1000 dollars per LTC.”

Already in 2021, Litecoin has set its first higher high since its all-time high price record was set in 2017. A higher-high after a higher low is the definition of an uptrend. Since the peak was put in during the beginning of 2021, Litecoin began to pullback but appears to be retesting former resistance turned support. If support can hold the cryptocurrency will confirm a new bull market is here and could see a move similar to what Bitcoin has done in recent months.

Litecoin Price Prediction 2021

Litecoin is already off to a strong start in 2021, setting a new high over the 2020 peak. Last year, the altcoin broke out from a symmetrical triangle pattern and set its first higher high over the 2019 peak. With both a higher low and higher high put in, a retest of the asset’s former all-time is due. If LTC corrects from here to further retest past support, it could result in a fall to $75 before a larger push higher.

Litecoin Price Prediction 2022 – 2023

With Litecoin making a clear breakout, then building a base over the last two years of price action, an uptrend should follow. That means that there is a chance that after 2021, could come another extended bear cycle, before similar price action establishes a bottom once again. But there won’t be any risk of downside until Litecoin reaches well above $2,000 per coin.

Litecoin Price Prediction 2024 – 2025

What goes up, must come down, and after Litecoin sets a new high in 2021 or early 2022, and then completes another bearish downtrend, it will be time for the cycle to restart and another base to build. Once the downtrend breaks, as is characteristic of all markets, another consolidation phase will build another base for a subsequent bull market to begin.

Conclusion: Is Litecoin a Good Investment and How Much Will LTC Be Worth?

Using the analysis from some of the industry’s best analysts and traders, LTC projected growth could reach a profitable projection as high as $13,000 in the long-term outlook, which would make it among the best performing assets of all-time, next to Bitcoin.

Litecoin has been struggling to reclaim its previous all-time high, and according to analysis lower prices could be met before some of the biggest price predictions are ever reached. On the lowest end of the scale, analysts see $18 as the absolute bottom for Litecoin in the days ahead.

Forex Analysis & Reviews: Thanks to Elon Musk, bitcoin skyrocketed by 14% and updated the historical maximum of the total capitalization

The cryptocurrency market is experiencing a real "boom" in early February. The indices of the main digital assets grew rapidly, but Bitcoin and Ethereum stand out against this background. Also at the very top, "meme" asset Dogecoin suddenly appeared, which increased in price by 50%. It is noteworthy that Elon Musk had a hand in all this positive news for the cryptocurrency market. The billionaire promoted Dogecoin on Twitter, and went even further with bitcoin and ether. Elon Musk's company invested a whopping $1.5 billion in bitcoin, which was reflected in Ethereum, which rose in price by 9%. The main cryptocurrency has completely "flown into space," having updated its historical maximum. In just an hour, bitcoin has grown by 14%, and the price of the digital asset now has exceeded the mark of $45 thousand. Now, the cryptocurrency is held at the level of $43.3 thousand, but the overall price increase for the day was 12%.
There were two reasons for the occurrence of such an explosion in the cryptocurrency market. The first one has already been pointed out: Tesla reported to the Securities Commission about an investment in bitcoin in the amount of $1.5 billion. The second reason is even more decisive. The company Tesla said that in the near future it will accept cryptocurrency as payment in accordance with the terms of the legislation. This statement was a real catalyst for the active growth of all major cryptocurrencies. It is estimated that since bitcoin set a local minimum of $ 3.8 thousand in March 2020, the cryptocurrency has risen in price by 1084%, and as of February 8, the total capitalization of the first digital currency is $810 billion. Of course, this event can be called decisive in the further growth of prices for cryptocurrency. And companies such as Tesla and Visa will become the guides and main lobbyists of the cryptocurrency market in the implementation of financial transactions. *The market analysis posted here is meant to increase your awareness, but not to give instructions to make a trade.

Bitcoin Group SE with strong start into 2021- Integration of Bitcoin Deutschland AG into futurum bank AG successfully completed

Herford, February 5, 2021 - Bitcoin Group SE (ISIN DE000A1TNV91) is starting the financial year 2021 with high momentum. With new record highs at the turn of the year - including for bitcoin as the most important cryptocurrency - the momentum on Europe's largest crypto trading platform Bitcoin.de remained undiminished.

In the month of January 2021 alone, Bitcoin Group's Crypto Trading platform Bitcoin.de achieved the third-best monthly result to date in terms of commission revenue. Only in the months of January 2018 and December 2017, Bitcoin.de did perform even better in a historical comparison on a monthly basis.

At the same time, the Bitcoin Group successfully completed the integration of Bitcoin Deutschland AG into futurum bank AG within a very short period of time. This has created the conditions to leverage the synergy potential from the organisational repositioning on the basis of the growing trading activities.

"The dynamic start into 2021 makes us extremely confident for the rest of the year. After the excellent and fast integration work at futurum bank AG, we have the ideal starting point to further accelerate our growth. An important aspect is the launch of our new trading system planned for the second quarter, from which we expect a significant boost in customer acquisition for Bitcoin.de. In addition, we are optimistic about the performance of our own cryptocurrency holdings due to the price development of the Bitcoin," says the managing director of Bitcoin Group SE, Marco Bodewein.

THE LIST: 2020 GLOBAL 2000

Just how enormous is the economic crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic? Forbes’ 18th annual ranking of the world’s 2,000 largest public companies illustrates the magnitude of the global shutdowns and serves as a warning for more trouble ahead in the coming months.

Most companies on this year’s Global 2000 list have seen their market values drop considerably since last year, and woeful first-quarter earnings provide a painful insight into the impact of the Great Cessation. The past few months have been especially brutal for the airlines, which saw demand drop lower than after 9/11. American Airlines, for instance, fell from No. 372 on the list to 967th after losing a staggering $2.2 billion in its first quarter.

Not all companies are being negatively affected by the pandemic, however. The biggest players in e-commerce—including Amazon, Alibaba and Walmart—have all experienced growth thanks to the rise in online shopping. All three moved up on this year’s list.

On the financial front, the Industrial and Commercial Bank of China remained in the top spot for the eighth straight year with more than $4.3 trillion in assets. China’s “big four” state-owned banks all wound up in this year’s top 10. JPMorgan Chase is the largest U.S. company at No. 3, falling one spot from last year.

In other bright spots, the largest IPO of 2019, Saudi Aramco, debuted at No. 5 on the list, while Zoom and Slack (which both IPOed last year) have also been instant beneficiaries of the new work-from-home realities. Both companies made an inaugural appearance on the Global 2000—virtually overnight.
