i don't get it. 

How is there any basis in that price action? 

That's what made me laugh in the first place but the first 40 days is a tight fit, god knows why he thought of doing it at all, it must be some weird new cult TA technique that when adopted by the many will become a self fulfilling prophesy (like most of the others), don't forget you saw it here first 😉

Hi all - just a note that we've created a specific bitcoin halving events page which you can see here. This will likely be more for clients who are new to trading bitcoin with IG, or are newly interested in the bitcoin halving event which is likely to take place in May 2020. 

To make sure we've not been left out we have our own BTC log scale showing the cryptocurrency price over the last couple of halving events. ;) Over the next 18 months or so we will be putting out a number of interviews, videos, podcasts, and content pieces which may be more relevant to those on Community. I'll make sure to update you all.

What is the spread on Bitcoin? On my spread betting it’s 50, but looking at the other topic (crypto 10) and from forum replies it’s supposed to be lower. Why is there a discrepancy?


hey - spread (in the same way as for FX, futures and shares) are variable based on the underlying liquidity and any market volatility. At the moment I can see that BTC is 50, however earlier today it was 38.

Trading channel is too wide to work out accurate support and resistance level- is the bounce short covering? 10000 seems to be critical.

I think there was a lot of short covering as the move lost momentum in the 3 hourly candles after the pump down candle and the bears may try to have another go around here 10280.

People are clinging to hope, Whilst others are fighting to get to the exit. It's stuff like this that makes life exciting 😄 

Need I say any more...10000 level is as important as Back to the Future 1955 time continuum (all roads lead back there!)

This is an interesting log scale (2 weekly) chart published end of Jan 19 on bitcoin price in relation to halving dates. Current 1 week chart below that.





Just to update that Log scale weekly chart from the Original Post of the thread.

    • Sainsburys full year earnings and Unilever’s first quarter trading update both say the same thing, UK consumers are in for higher prices. The war in Ukraine, supply chain issues and the effects of ongoing Covid all to blame.      
    • US Dollar (DXY) Daily Price and Analysis US Q1 GDP may stall the greenback’s advance. A 20-year high nears for the US dollar. The multi-month US dollar rally continues with the greenback printing a fresh high today ahead of the first look at US Q1 GDP at 12.30 GMT. The US dollar basket (DXY) has been boosted by renewed weakness in the Euro and the Japanese Yen, as investors move from lower-yielding to higher-yielding currencies, while safe-haven flows continue to benefit the greenback. The US growth release later in the session is expected to show a sharp slowdown from the robust Q4 figure of 6.9%. The markets are currently pricing in growth of just 1% for the first three months of this year, with the slowdown mainly due to a reduction in inventory accrual over the quarter. This release is unlikely to move the greenback, unless there is a large miss or beat, as the Fed believe that 2022 US growth will be robust enough to let them tighten monetary policy sharply without damaging the economy. The latest US Core PCE data – the Fed’s preferred inflation reading – is released on Friday and this may have more effect on the US dollar than today’s GDP data. For all market moving economic data and events, see the DailyFX Calendar. The ongoing US dollar rally has been aided by weakness across a range of G7 currencies including the Euro, the Japanese Yen, and the British Pound. The Euro continues to battle with lowly growth expectations, exacerbated by energy concerns, the British Pound is mired by weak economic data, while the Japanese Yen is in freefall as the BoJ continues with its ultra-loose monetary policy.   The US dollar continues to press higher and looks set to break above 103.96, the March 2020 high. Above here the US dollar would be back at levels last seen nearly two decades ago. The March resistance will likely hold in the short-term, especially with month-end portfolio rebalancing at the end of the week, but US dollar strength is set to continue in the months ahead.
