Bitcoin (BTC): Consolidates as Traders Buy Alternatives

After the cancellation of the Segwit2x fork, traders have been moving out of BTC into a variety of other coins, as we highlighted yesterday, when a variety of altcoins recorded double-digit gains. And overnight it seems that the third-largest digital coin, Bitcoin Cash (BCH), was on the top of traders buy lists, surging by over 20% in Asian hours on the back of switching from BTC and heavy Korean Won buying. BCH has been rallying hard since the Segwit2x fork was cancelled as miners look to shift resources on the blockchain with transaction costs lower on the Cash fork.

Bitcoin Switching Sees Cash Surge Towards Record High

And the latest rally is now probing the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement level of the August 6 -19 trading range with a close above this level opening a potential re-test of the August spike-high of $973. However, Bitcoin Cash has already rallied over 180% in the last month and may see a bout of profit-taking before making a move towards $1,000.

We have been discussing various Bitcoins at our Weekly Bitcoin webinar on Wednesday’s at 12:00pm - if you would like to join us, please click here.
