Bitcoin and Ethereum Consolidate, Upward Momentum Intact

Bitcoin and Ethereum Consolidate, Upward Momentum Intact

Nick Cawley, Strategist

Talking Points

- Bitcoin consolidates above $8,000.

- Ethereum presses higher and further gains may be on the cards.

- Dash continues to make fresh highs on scaling upgrade.

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): Consolidation but Uptrend Remains Unscathed

Bitcoin remains solidly above $8,000 and it seems it may be winning over one of its harshest critics. In an apparent volte-face, JP Morgan Chase is considering whether to provide its customers access to CME’s upcoming BTC future through its futures brokerage, according to a story in The Wall Street Journal. JP Morgan Chase CEO Jamie Dillon has long been a high profile critic of crypto-currencies, labelling BTC ‘a fraud’ while threatening to fire any employee ‘in a second’ who trades Bitcoin for being ‘stupid.’

On the chart, the uptrend remains in place although Tuesday’s bearish engulfing candle should be respected until the topside is broken. On the downside, the November 8 high at $7,888 should provide a layer of protection ahead of Fibonacci support at $7,088.

Ethereum Ready for a Push Higher

The second largest digital coin, Ethereum (ETH) continues to move higher and is nearing the top of a longer-term triangle which suggests that prices could move even higher. Upside targets are at $379 ahead of $394 before the June 12 all-time high of $412 comes into play.

Dash Continues its Record-Breaking Run

Another crypto-currency making fresh highs this week is Dash (DASH), currently the fifth-largest coin by market capitalization. According to industry news, Dash, up +22% today, has started its own scaling process, upgrading its network block size to 2MB, while also reducing transaction fees and upgrading security protection. Dash is also working on its Evolution release, expected in June 2018, which is claimed to be the first user-friendly and scalable digital currency platform suitable for mass adoption. A close and consolidation period above the recent highs of $568 may see Dash push higher, although a similar pattern back in late-August saw Dash sold off before a fresh push higher.
