July 15–22 Weekly Report: 2018 lows in trading volume heighten expectation of a large directional move

Market Sentiment

The short-term outlook for the segment remains positive. The broad suggestions from the weekend showed a continuation of declining trading volume, however, without the same market cap drawdown as previous volume declines. Analyzing the month of July using June, given similarities in both sentiment and BTC trading ranges, we identify that on a MoM basis, net-long returns still negatively skewed to systematic-risk. Following our previous report, leading sentiment and technical indicators show tentative signs of a rebound with a modest improvement in regulatory guidance in both Asia and North America, leading the increase in market sentiment. Here at Caviar, as of July 15th, our analysis on exchange activity shows a 76% likelihood of a large directional move in BTC in the coming days. This real-time tool incorporates 1) bid/ask exchange information across both North America and Asia exchanges; 2) leading technical analysis on blockchain-level analytics and lastly; 3) social media to token price analysis with a 35% weight on GitHub activity. The tool provides a scenario analysis on the likelihood of short-term reversal of the current market trend. The outcome registered a 76% likelihood that BTC moves higher in the next 3–4 days.

Technical Analyses, TradingView

Futures Markets, COT Report

The release of the COT report on each Tuesday serves a tool to identify crowded speculative trades as it provides insights to institutional positioning. Above is the most recent COT report which was issued last Friday July 13th but is based on data from Tuesday July 10th. As of the last Tuesday, there were 4,121 short bitcoin futures positions and 2,666 long bitcoin futures positions held by what is defined as non-commercial traders. Non-commercial traders are those who are betting on the speculating on the price of Bitcoin and are NOT using the futures market for hedging purposes. As such, non-commercial traders were 60% net short. Here at Caviar, we are analyzing the gradual convergence in the number of shorts relative to longs as a short-term market bottom.

Market Cap Year-to-Date

There has been a collapse in trading volumes. On Saturday, trading volumes reached their lowest levels of the year. Bitcoin’s high market cap dominance (>40%) in conjunction with the defense of key psychological level of $6,000 signals a probability of an increase of a short-term breakout in BTC trading volume and in turn price.

Google Trends (bitcoin)

Interest in Bitcoin searches have remained modestly stagnant in the past few weeks relative to the large January decline in bitcoin searches. For the past two weeks, the stagnation in bitcoin searches coincides with a time horizon in which Bitcoin traded primarily in a sideways channel of $6,900 to $5,800 on marginally decreasing exchange volumes. Here at Caviar, we assess that the retail investors are cautiously optimistic on an ETF approval, yet highly risk-averse, foregoing the opportunity to speculate on the event.

Number of new BTC wallets

The number of new wallets being created reflects the decrease in the rate of new market entrants. The number of new wallets being created continues to be mixed. The fickle growth in new wallets relative to market cap implies a much larger decline in the rate of new wallets. Here at Caviar, we interpret widening spreads to be leading indicators on the continuation of the market trend, exercising caution on forecasts outside of 3–4 days.

Bitfinex BTC/USD Shorts from June 16th to July 15th

BTC shorts are steadily increasing as traders extract tepid trading volumes as a leading indicator of market strength. Although ETF approval expectations are weighing heavily into institutional analysis, the market has been capped below $300 billion for a concerning 35 days. Based on the lack of momentum on short-pressure, bitcoin’s repeated defense of $6,000, and an increase in risk appetite, we expect BTC/USD shorts to decline as a modest improvement in sentiment will drive both retail and institutional investors back to the asset class.

July 15–22 Trading Ideas: Long Tezos, as institutional interest has sharply increased, and long GoChain on expectations of industry-shaping partnerships and leading technical developments

What does it take for Bitcoin to achieve Mass-Adoption?

The biggest obstacle for Bitcoin right now is, that so few people use Bitcoin. But why do so few people actually use Bitcoin from a day-to-day basis? Well, the answer is, because so few people use Bitcoin. That might sound a bit confusing right away, but I will explain myself.

Bitcoin has the obstacle to overcome, same as Facebook. Facebook became so valuable, because literally every friend of yours, and their parents where using it. If no one used Facebook, then I really doubt it would be nearly as valuable to humanity as it is today.

The same exact thing also applies to Bitcoin. What makes money valuable, is the fact that you can pay anybody for anything with it. Good luck paying your local supermarket in Bitcoins. It just doesn’t make sense to do so.

This is also called the network effect. It sates, that a system is only so valuable, as the number of people using that system.

So, let’s dive into the 3 deciding factors, that must happen for Bitcoin to fully achieve mass adoption.

First, of course, is the support by a big corporation or even country. For example, if a big company like McDonalds starts to accept Bitcoin, then people would be more inclined to make purchases with Bitcoin. This makes total sense, because why would anybody adopt the usage of Bitcoin, if you couldn’t make any real-world purchases with it? Exactly, it doesn’t make any sense whatsoever.

The first point was pretty obvious, so let’s look at the other deciding factors, that are crucial for Bitcoin to be mass-adopted.

Did you actually know, that a third of the world’s population, 2,5 million adults to be precise, do not have access to the banking system? Yeah, what people in the first-world countries take completely for granted, isn’t all that common all around the world: A bank account. On the other side, many more people in these third-world countries do have mobile phones, but no bank accounts. So, what if all those people start using Cryptocurrencies, like Bitcoin, for their online and day-to-day transactions? They could skip the traditional banking system and directly buy and sell Bitcoin from their smartphones. If one third (or even less) of the world population starts to use Bitcoin, it will gain world-wide recognition and overtake any other currency.

The third scenario that could happen, is that a major economic collapse or abuse occurs. When this happens, lots of people will want to transfer their wealth to something that isn’t dependent on any country or government, but is universally accepted in every country of the world. There aren’t many options for such things. One of these things is, gold. And the other could be Bitcoin, which I see as the digital version of Gold.

I hope we will never have to experience such a catastrophic event in our lifetime, but it sure is a positive thing for Bitcoin, since lots of people will adopt it.

These are all the point I could think of. Thanks a lot for reading and have an awesome day! Visit me at flashipcrypto.com for more Crypto-article?
