Bitcoin Rallys Through $8,200; New Crypto Market Cap Record

Bitcoin Rallys Through $8,200; New Crypto Market Cap Record

Nick Cawley, Strategist

Talking Points

- Bitcoin pierces through $8,200 and is set to push higher.

- Turnover in the last 24 hours has been strong but not exceptional.

The DailyFX Bitcoin Glossary is designed to provide traders with a reference for important terms and concepts essential for understanding the emerging cryptocurrency universe.

Bitcoin (BTC): Another Day, Another Record High for the Market Heavyweight.

Bitcoin(BTC) traded above $8,200 in European trade Monday, set up by a reasonably active session in Asia with trading dominated by US Dollars, ahead of Korean Won and switching from Bitcoin Cash (BCH). While turnover was active at just over $3.6 billion, this is around half the volume seen this time last week when BTC volume broke through $7 billion for the first time. Slowing volume may indicate that enthusiasm for BTC may be waning but for now, potentially, the path of least resistance in the short-term points to higher prices.

BTC prices have been driven higher by a regular flow of positive news of late, and more importantly a lack of any bad news or negative commentary. The launch of BTC futures by the CME and the CBOE also nears, an event that is expected to increase liquidity and market respectability.

We discussed the upside potential of BTC at last week’s Bitcoin webinar - if you would like to join us every Wednesday at 12:00pm for updated news and views, please click here.

Ethereum (ETH) Exceeds Short-Term Target

At last week’s webinar we noted that Ethereum’s price action pointed to further gains with the 78.6% Fibonacci retracement level at $353 the first target. If this level holds, then the September 1 high of $395 beckons ahead of the all-time high at $412.
