Global Negative-Yielding Debt Reaches $17 Trillion, Bitcoin Looks Attractive

Published

Buying Bіtсоіn wіth Debt Stіnkѕ of Bubblеѕ

Global negative-yielding debt has now officially reached $17 trillion and the investors are getting more nervous now and starting to consider non-traditional assets such as Bitcoin. In the reports that we have in the altcoin news below, we find out more about the entire situation.

The investors are now in fear since they saw the global negative-yielding debt is shifting the entire global economy. According to Bloomberg reports:

 “The global stock of negative-yielding debt is now in excess of $17 trillion as rising market volatility lends extra force to this year’s unprecedented bond rally.”

The investors are no longer seeing the future in the global traditional economy because of the yield curve that got inverted. This curve is only formed when the interest rates on short-term bonds get higher than the interest rates that are earned by the long-term bonds. Although now, these inverted yield curves predict recessions but since 1955 every time when a recession has occurred in the US, the yield curve has inverted. The global uncertainties have also increased because of the Chinese-US trade war and this is impacting the confidence of the investors in the world economy future. The Forbes explained:

 “Thirty percent of all investment-grade securities now bear sub-zero yields, meaning that investors who acquire the debt and hold it to maturity are guaranteed to make a loss.”

As the economy gets weaker and weaker, some of the observers predict that the investors will turn their attention to assets such as Bitcoin. Bitcoin remained robust and healthy and the interest in investing in this untraditional asset continues to gain momentum. The bitcoin futures contracts trading is reaching high numbers at the Chicago Mercantile Exchange Group and the CME Managing director Tim McCourt remarked:

 “This is an exciting time for bitcoin futures, as well as for cryptocurrency assets in general. There is a lot of broad investor interest in cryptocurrency, as well as growing interest in a variety of applications for cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology.”

As noted in the latest cryptocurrency news, the companies are getting hard into the crypto market. the New York Department of Financial Services is providing a license now that allows Bakkt to operate as a Limited Liability Company and the company will also start trading physically-settled bitcoin futures.

Crypto Critic Peter Schiff: Bitcoin Will Drop To $1,000 To Complete A Pattern

Published

peter schiff
There are many Bitcoin analysts which are confused by the recent move of the dominant cryptocurrency, going lower than $7,500 and proving that a massive bearish trend is here. Aside from the optimistic analysts who still place their bets on more positive Bitcoin news in the future, there are negative critics too. One of them is the crypto critic Peter Schiff who ridiculed the cryptocurrency and claimed that BTC/USD is set to dive to as low as $1,000.While arguing the current price action and correlating it to a "head and shoulders" formation, the gold bug took to Twitter in a debate and said that a dramatic downturn would characterize the markets in the future.As the crypto critic Peter Schiff wrote:
“#Bitcoin is nearing the neckline of the head-and-shoulders top I pointed out before the Oct 25th 40% pump. The right shoulder is now shrugged and the neckline slanted and parallel to the shoulders. If it breaks the price objective for the dump is $1,000 to complete the pattern.”
In a further post, he also doubled down on his position.  “The picture really doesn't look any better if your long Bitcoin!” Schiff wrote.Another attempt saw the crypto critic Peter Schiff taking a photograph of a Bitcoin price chart on his computer screen and ridiculing the coin and its performance in the latest cryptocurrency news.However, those who know Schiff said that he is waiting for times like these just to strengthen his position. Well known for his dubious price commentaries, the gold bug is convinced that Bitcoin (BTC) is doomed to fail. However, not all of his predictions were true - in fact, all of them have proven false so far which made him lose a lot of supporters.One of the people who responded to the crypto critic Peter Schiff was the trader known as CryptoBull. He produced a BTC/USD chart and said that Schiff needs to guess market trajectory correctly.Other long-term warnings from Schiff include the prediction that Bitcoin will never reach $50,000 while gold will top $5,000. Additionally, in late October, the gold bug accused investors of manipulation as BTC gained 30% over gold.

BTC Twitter Engagement Drops to Two-Year Lows: Report

Published

btc twitter engagement
In the wake of the news that Bitcoin lost support below $8,000, we can also see that BTC Twitter engagement drops to two year lows. As an integral part of the crypto scene, Twitter is a good indicator of the (changing) sentiment about cryptocurrencies. The latest Bitcoin news are signaling that there is a decrease in interest for Bitcoin (and possibly other cryptocurrencies) by users on Twitter.Often gauged from Bitcoin analysts and industry insiders who spend their time on the social network, the BTC Twitter engagement is an obvious sign of interest for the cryptocurrency as a whole. In the latest news, we can see that this sentiment has declined back to levels as low as those seen two years ago.The irony is that a lot of what is going on in the crypto industry revolves around postings on a centralized social media platform. This is testament to the immaturity of the scene in the tribalism and everything else that is still rife on the platform. The bottom line, however, is that the growth of Bitcoin was monumental but now the interest on social networks is dropping.According to reports by Skew Markets, the BTC Twitter engagement has fallen to lows not seen for two years.https://twitter.com/skewdotcom/status/1197216029799309314This obviously may not be the case for other cryptocurrency assets but Bitcoin at least appears to have fallen out of taste on the social media platform. The peak on Twitter also came when the BTC price was at a peak during late 2017 and early 2018 - when the daily tweets for BTC topped 150,000. Today, they are only below the 20,000 level as the charts by Skew Markets show.This could be that the space has evolved beyond Twitter which would be a good thing since the entire scene is a bit of a circus. However, we can also tell that the intrusive advertising, unfettered spam and a lot of "trash posts" result in the drop of the BTC Twitter engagement.Just like Facebook, Twitter also controls what people see in their streams. The fact that Bitcoin is falling to new lows also accounts for the lack of interest, along with the miner capitulation and market manipulation reports which are driving traders outside of social media.https://twitter.com/100trillionUSD/status/1196818121337835523

Bitcoin Price Is Primed For Breakdown Below $8,000: Analysis

Published

bitcoin price is primed
The USD value of the leading cryptocurrency has extended its decline over the past couple of days and is now below the $8,250 resistance area. Analysts show that the Bitcoin price is primed for a breakdown and will likely decline below the $8,000 and $7,800 support levels if the downward trend remains.Speaking of, there were further losses in the Bitcoin (BTC) price below the $8,200 support area against the US dollar. BTC extended its decline below the 100 hourly simple moving average too - and tested the $8,000 support area.This is how the Bitcoin price is primed for a decline - and how it formed a low near $7,987 before correcting higher. At one moment, we could see that price of BTC trading above the $8,100 level and testing the $8,150 resistance area.The price seems to be facing a strong resistance near the $8,150 and $8,200 levels. It did shock a lot of investors when the crypto news posted a $8,631 high and a $7,987 low in one day for Bitcoin.Analysts agree that Bitcoin is primed for another downfall and believe that there is a major bearis htrend line forming with resistance near $8,150. The technical analysis shows that the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent decline is pushing $8,300 to act as a resistance - and the next major resistance is at the $8,400 level.The 61.8% Fib retracement level, on the other hand, shows that the Bitcoin price is primed for intermediate resistance near $8,360 and the 100 hourly simple moving average. On the downside, however, an initial support is near the $8,000 area.If we see a daily close below $8,000, the price could even break the $7,800 support. Besides, the next key support is near the $7,400 level. Looking at the charts, the Bitcoin price is primed to face resistance near the $8,150 and $8,200 levels.Thus, there is also a risk of more downsides below $8,000. In order to start a decent recovery and in order for the Bitcoin news now to initiate a positive run, the price must settle above $8,200 first and gain momentum above the $8,300 resistance area.The total cryptocurrency market cap today is at $222 billion which is not a signal of a recovery coming. Other altcoins are still influenced by Bitcoin's momentum and may decline further as well.

BTC May Dip Below $7,000 Before Post-Halving Rally: Analyst

Published

By

btc may dip
One analyst named Tone Vays recently claimed that BTC may dip to lower regions before the halving event after which it is expected to visit new heights. According to Vays and his statement in the latest crypto news, BTC may dip below $7,000 before the mining reward halving.
“At the moment, I still see lower prices,” Vays noted in an interview with Block TV. “I still think we’re going to go lower than USD 7,000 before the halving. But after that, that would be the final secondary low. Hopefully it’ll be higher than the USD 3,000 low back in December. And then we can finally start a bull market after the halving.”
If the analyst is right, this means that BTC may dip and may drop pretty soon as the Bitcoin halving is expected to happen in May 2020. While the halving price has always been factored, there are still spikes. If the price of the most dominant coin falls, there will be another hype cycle going into the halving.
“It’s all about the proximinty of the halving and where the price is,” the analyst said when he told the media that BTC may dip lower.
Vays does not think that BTC will hit its all-time high in 2020 - in a year from now he sees it a bit over $10,000. Nonetheless, once the barrier of $20,000 is broken, $50,000 and $100,000 can follow "pretty quickly" but it won't be next year he said.The analyst also said that BTC may dip and that he was skeptical about BTC's recent rally when it hit new heights. Many pressured and said that BTC will keep rising - but the analyst notes that he knew that the big run up was "caused by the exodus out of the old coin space, Ethereum (ETH), Litecoin (LTC), Ripple (XRP) – and eventually that stopped.The latest Bitcoin news updates show that the leading cryptocurrency is below $8,200 and trading slowly. When it comes to external factors, the analyst said that Facebook's “Libra is not a competitor to BTC” and China does not drive the market much.
“Maybe an ETF (exchange-traded fund) is actually coming. Things like that are very, very bullish for the space – the more comfortable traditional financial markets are with Bitcoin [and] the more regulated products that appear, the better it actually is for the price of Bitcoin,” concludes Vays.
