Veteran trader Peter Brandt hinted in a tweet that it may be time to buy Bitcoin. He said when everyone is uber bullish and expecting a massive surge in prices, it is usually a time to sell and when the same bulls turn into bears and predict a crash, it could be time to buy. However, JPMorgan analysts had a differing view about the recent price crash.
They believe the heightened volatility in Bitcoin could hinder institutional adoption. The analysts who had previously projected a target of $150,000 for Bitcoin, assuming “that the Bitcoin to gold volatility ratio will fall to around 2x later this year” have revised their targets lower.
“Our fair value for bitcoin based on a volatility ratio of bitcoin to gold of around 4x would be 1/4th of $150,000, or $38,000," JPMorgan said, Business Insider reported
We had said in our previous analysis that Bitcoin was oversold and could be ready for a bounce to the breakdown level of £29,000 and that is exactly what happened. The BTC/GBP pair has been facing stiff resistance at £29,000 but a positive sign is that the bulls have not ceded ground. This indicates that traders expect a break above £29,000.
If that happens, the pair could rally to the 50-day simple moving average (SMA), which may again act as a stiff resistance. A break and close above this resistance will signal a possible change in trend. Contrary to this assumption, if the price turns down from the current level, the bears will sense an opportunity and try to pull the pair to £26,000 and then retest the January 24 intraday low of £24,450.
If the next dip holds above £26,000, it may signal that a bottom is in place. We suggest traders wait for the confirmation of a bottom before jumping in to buy.Lastly please check out the advancement’s happening in the cryptocurrency world.
Enjoy the issue!

ETHEREUM – ETH/GBP
In Ether also we had projected the start of a relief rally which could reach the downtrend line and that is what happened. On three previous occasions, the price turned down from the downtrend line, suggesting that bears aggressively defend this level.
Both moving averages are sloping down and the relative strength index (RSI) is in the negative zone, indicating that bears have the upper hand. Read more
RIPPLE – XRP/GBP
XRP attempted a recovery on January 26 but the bulls could not sustain the higher levels as seen from the long wick on the day’s candlestick. However, a positive sign is that buyers have not allowed the price to dip below £0.43 for the past few days.
This increases the likelihood of a relief rally to the overhead resistance at £0.51. The downsloping moving averages and the RSI in the negative territory indicate that bears have the upper hand. Read more
CARDANO – ADA/GBP
Cardano has been trading in a tight range for the past few days, suggesting that both the bulls and the bears are playing it safe. Usually, tight ranges resolve with a strong trending move.
The positive divergence on the RSI suggests that the selling pressure could be reducing. That implies the possibility of a move higher. Read more
BINANCE – BNB/GBP
Binance Coin bounced off the strong support at £247, suggesting that bulls are defending this level aggressively. The buyers will now try to push the price to the downtrend line, which is a key resistance to watch out for.
If the price turns down from the downtrend line, the bears will again try to pull the price to £247. A break and close below this support could signal the resumption of the downtrend. Read more

Fren, a social token leveraging on DeFi
Fren tokens are the native tokens on the Fren platform and can be purchased from exchanges such as Polonies, BKEX, dextools.io and Uniswap. You’ll need to sign up on these exchanges so you can create orders from there if you want to purchase these tokens. You will get automatically enlisted into the Fren community once you have the tokens. This is an online community of likeminded friends. The guiding ethos in this community is to learn together, play together and invest together. It should be known that anonymity and decentralisation are the backbone of this community. Being a social community governed by social tokens, it means that all the decisions made are to be decided collectively as a community.
There are four distinct services that can be accessed by the Fren token. First, having access to the Fren token means that you become an automatic member of the community. This means that you share in the same vision as other community members. You therefore become a member of the FrenDAO. This is the governance body of the platform. As a member of the DAO, you get to decide on the direction of the platform and which products are to be given priority. You also decide how the funds are to be used. Finally, you get to decide on the various forms of rewards that are going to be given in the community. All this is done through a vote. The more tokens you have, the more power you’ll have in voting. This is called Fren power. Read more
