Bitcoin Price Struggles to Hold Record Highs

Bitcoin Price Struggles to Hold Record Highs

Nick Cawley, Strategist

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): $12,000 Continues to Prove Allusive; JP Morgan Chase U-Turn

The crypto-currency heavyweight continues to push higher, after last week’s sharp sell-off but momentum continues to wane as $12,000 heaves into view. BTC has gained over 110% since mid-November, despite last week’s sharp sell-off, and looks unlikely to break higher. One piece of news that may please buyers is the change in stance of Bitcoin bear JP Morgan Chase. The company’s CEO Jamie Dimon recently described BTC as a ‘fraud’ and a ‘bubble’ but the bank now seems to view Bitcoin in a different light. According to JP Morgan analyst Nikolaos Panigirtzoglou, the launch of BTC futures, via the CBOE and the CME, adds legitimacy to the space and will increase Bitcoin’s appeal to both retail and institutional investors alike.

He added, "In all, the prospective introduction of bitcoin futures has the potential to elevate cryptocurrencies to an emerging asset class. The value of this new asset class is a function of the breadth of its acceptance as a store of wealth and as a means of payment and simply judging by other stores of wealth such as gold, cryptocurrencies have the potential to grow further from here."

CME and CBOE were both given approval from the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) to list Bitcoin futures on Friday November 1. The CBOE will list BTC futures on December 10 and the CME on the December 18. Nasdaq recently said that they will list BTC futures next year.
