"Bitcoin bubble tops are clearly identified with a dark red cluster of Adjusted Binary BDD. Until that happens, we're not at the top.

  • 11:26 Analysis: BTC, ETH Prices Fall Massively On BitMax As Users Attribute It To Exchange's Low Liquidity

    According to analysis, liquidity on an exchange shows the amount of trade activity on the platform; the more the liquidity on an exchange, the better the trading activity. Thus, it would be really difficult for whales to manipulate the prices on an exchange with high liquidity.

  • 09:52 Fed Chair: We Will Act As Appropriate To Sustain The Expansion

    In a closely-scrutinised address to policymakers gathered in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, Federal Reserve Chair Jerome H. Powell gave no new indication about the outlook for interest rates, repeating a line he has used since June: "We will act as appropriate to sustain the expansion."
    The Fed raised rates four times in 2018, with a December hike to between 2.25 and 2.5 percent marking the ninth since 2015 as the US economy charted a healthy expansionary course. The plan had been for another three raises of the benchmark before leaving it steady at between 3 and 3.25 percent. In March the Fed switched to a neutral position, saying it would take a more "patient approach to monetary policy." That later ebbed into a more dovish stance, with Mr Powell cutting rates by 25 basis points last month – the first such move since the financial crisis – citing higher trade uncertainty, slower global growth and stubbornly low inflation.
    Despite the objections of some policy makers, there is now a probability of over 90 percent that rates will be cut another 25 basis points in September according to the CME FedWatch Tool, and a roughly 50 percent chance of further one before the year is out.
