Webinar: Cryptocurrencies Rally on Positive US Regulatory Comments

Webinar: Cryptocurrencies Rally on Positive US Regulatory Comments

Nick Cawley, Senior Strategist

In this webinar we explained why cryptocurrency prices turned sharply higher late Tuesday after positive comments from CFTC chairman Christopher Giancarlo and SEC chair Jay Clayton at the US Senate hearing seemed to legitimize the digital space.

Cryptocurrency Topics Covered

  • The prices of Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH) and Ripple (XRP) all performed a sharp turnaround and gained 25%+ over a 24-hour period after official US regulatory commentary met with a bullish market response.
  • Santander announced it would use Ripple technology in its latest payment app which could push XRP back into the public’s view.
  • Overall technical charts look at a lot more positive but don’t chase prices and remain disciplined at all time.
