DEGETHAL: AN INNOVATIVE PROJECT IN THE CRYPTO MARKET RADIOLOGEX: WILL IT BE THE BIGGEST STO IN 2021?
BONDEX IS CREATING A BLOCKCHAIN-DRIVEN NEXT-GEN TALENT MANAGEMENT AND ACQUISITION PLATFORM
The crypto markets sold off on September 24 on news that China’s central bank, the People’s Bank of China, warned of a harsher crackdown on services such as trading, order matching, token issuance and derivatives for virtual currencies. Although the ban was not new and has been in place since 2017, the prevailing negative sentiment could have led to the knee-jerk reaction to the downside. We had warned that Bitcoin could face selling near the 20-day exponential moving average (EMA) and that is what happened. The bulls tried to push the price above the 20-day EMA on September 24 and again on September 27 but failed. However, a minor positive is that bulls have successfully defended the 100-day simple moving average (SMA) for the past few days. This indicates accumulation at this support. Hence, this becomes an important level for the bears to break. If that happens, several stop losses may trigger and the bearish momentum could pick up. The BTC/GBP pair could then slide to the support line of the descending channel pattern. A break and close below the channel will indicate panic selling and that may pull the price down to £22,000. This bearish view will invalidate if bulls drive and sustain the price above the channel. The pair could then rise to £35,525 and later to £38,000. As the trend is down and a firm bottom is not in place, we are not proposing any trades. Lastly please check out the advancement’s happening in the cryptocurrency world. Enjoy the issue!

ETHEREUM – ETH/GBP
Ether has been sandwiched between the 100-day SMA and the 20-day EMA for the past few days. This shows that bulls are buying on dips but demand dries up at higher levels and bears assert their dominance. The 20-day EMA is sloping down and the relative strength index (RSI) is in the negative territory indicating that the path of least resistance is to the downside. Read more
RIPPLE – XRP/GBP
XRP has been trading between the 100-day SMA and the 20-day EMA for the past few days. The failure of the bulls to push the price above the 20-day EMA suggests that sentiment remains negative and traders are selling on rallies. If the price does not rise above the 20-day EMA within the next few days, the possibility of a break below the 100-day SMA increases. If that happens, the XRP/GBP pair could extend its slide to psychological support at £0.50. Read more
CARDANO – ADA/GBP
Cardano rose above the 20-day EMA on September 25 but the long wick on the day’s candlestick shows that bears aggressively sold at higher levels as we had projected in the previous analysis. The ADA/GBP pair has turned down and the bears will now try to sink the price to £1.50 followed by a retest of the critical support at £1.33. The downsloping 20-day EMA and the RSI in the negative territory indicate advantage to bears. Read more
BINANCE – BNB/GBP
Binance Coin dropped to £238.30, just below our target of £240 projected in the previous analysis. The BNB/GBP pair has been trading below the 100-day SMA for the past three days, indicating a lack of demand even at these levels. The bulls attempted to push the price above the 100-day SMA on September 27 but failed. The downsloping 20-day EMA and the RSI below 37 suggest that bears are in control. Read more

A constant feature of art is that it is expensive. In this sense, for thousands of years, art has been shaped and valued under the influence of a lucky few.
