- Bitcoin: too early to buyby FxPro FXPro on July 4, 2022 at 8:23 am
Bitcoin is down 9.2% over the past week, finishing around $19,400 and trading near 19,000 on Monday morning. Ethereum has lost 13.3% in the last seven days, while other top altcoins in the top 10 have fallen from 8.6% (BNB) to 18% (Solana). According to CoinMarketCap, the total capitalisation of the crypto market fell 9% over the week to $865bn. Bitcoin's dominance index fell 0.3 points to 42.2%. The cryptocurrency fears index by Monday rose to 14 points.Bitcoin has been under even pressure for almost all last week. A brief bounce at the beginning of the day on July 1 was more likely due to emotional excitement from the start of a new period (month, quarter, half-year) rather than fundamental changes in the situation. This rebound protected BTCUSD from updating lows. Nevertheless, the global picture remains bearish as stock markets show no glimpses of tightening financial conditions by central banks. On the weekly charts, BTCUSD remains below the 200-week average, having failed a timid attempt to climb higher last week. The RSI on the weekly charts remains oversold, which is a historical anomaly. Unfortunately for the bulls, this is not a sign of a better time to enter. Technically, a sustained return from extreme to norm would be a buy signal. The end of the second quarter of 2022 was the worst for bitcoin in 11 years. FxPro's Analysis: Bitcoin chart Investor Michael Bury, who predicted the 2007 mortgage crisis, admits that the current market situation is only the middle of a bearish cycle for BTC and equities. Changpeng Zhao, chief executive of cryptocurrency exchange Binance, called the current collapse of the crypto market a good time to buy bitcoin for the long term. He said that if traders can hold out in the current bear market, their investments will multiply in the next bullish trend. According to IntoTheBlock, retail investors have stepped up after bitcoin fell below $20,000. This category of cryptocurrency holders has been the most aggressive in buying during the recent sell-off. El Salvador continues to buy bitcoins amid a falling market. This time, the country's government spent about $1.5 million to buy 80 BTC at an average price of $19,000. On the other hand, Bank of America reported that the bank's customers investing in cryptocurrencies has fallen by more than 50% since November last year.

- Portfolio Diversification with PrimeXBT: The Ultimate Overview Of Available Assetsby ForexLive on July 1, 2022 at 5:50 pm
Portfolio diversification has become a prominent subject in recent years, as assets like cryptocurrencies show an increasingly strong correlation with major stock indices. The previously uncorrelated asset class now trades lockstep with stocks yet is even more viciously volatile. The recent macro environment has made which assets you take a position in and what side of the market you are on critical to survival. Using PrimeXBT and its massive list of digital and traditional assets, portfolio diversification is simplified and more accessible than ever before. Here is a look at the list of PrimeXBT trading instruments and how they can be used effectively to protect capital and increase the potential for profits. A Primer On Portfolio Diversification Benefits During the recent post-pandemic bull run, risk assets like stocks and crypto took off like a pair of rockets in parallel flight. Investors piled in as cryptocurrencies figuratively went to the “moon.” The only problem is that when the stock market began to topple, the sudden and strong correlation between major US stock indices like the Nasdaq and S&P 500 took crypto assets like Bitcoin and Ethereum down with them. Less liquid coins like Dogecoin were decimated and lost as much as 90% in value. A portfolio heavy in these assets went from several times over in the green to severely underwater and deeply in the red. Those who moved capital to commodities like oil would have earned substantial profits during this time. With inflation running hot, gold also would have protected wealth better than crypto or equities. The dollar also performed strongly relative to other currencies and assets in this economic environment, for example. Available Assets From Award-Winning Margin Trading Platform The takeaway above is that the right mix of trading instruments can diversify a portfolio so that no opportunities are left behind, but the risk is appropriately spread out across uncorrelated or anti-correlated asset classes. Well-diversified portfolios suffer less damaging drawdowns and don’t miss out on winners as often. With PrimeXBT, traders get even more control with long and short positions on more than 100 different assets under just one roof. The list of trading instruments available includes: Cryptocurrencies Cryptocurrencies have become an important new asset class for the digital age. Popular assets include Bitcoin, Ethereum, Solana, and Dogecoin. More exotic altcoins from trending categories like GameFi, Metaverse, DeFi, and others are also offered. Stock Indices You name it, and the most important stock index is listed. This includes all major US, European, and Asian stock indices like the Dow Jones Industrial Average, S&P 500, FTSE, DAX 30, Nikkei, and many more. Commodities Commodities have become an increasingly important part of the global macro and geopolitical landscape, especially as inflation drives up the prices of these scarce assets. Oil, natural gas, gold, and silver are all listed on PrimeXBT and provide some of the most interesting diversification options. Forex Currencies Forex currencies have had a dramatic shakeup since the pandemic struck, and monetary policy shifted across the board. Global inflation made anything trading against the dollar a decent short opportunity. PrimeXBT offers all major pairs, plenty of minors, and a mix of exotics from emerging markets. Portfolio Diversification With PrimeXBT Explained Once again, using crypto and stocks as an example, a portfolio too heavy in these assets would have missed out on the energy sector’s incredible profits or the safe haven provided by golf and silver. Such portfolios could also benefit from the stability of forex currencies. Positioning doesn’t always have to be on the long side, either. PrimeXBT provides long and short positions for total flexibility. Short positions can hedge against successful longs when markets get shaky. Strategic long and shorts leave no global market untapped or opportunity unturned. A careful mix can protect capital against correlation risk, minimize losses, and maximize exposure, making massive profits infinitely more possible. Stop-loss protection, technical analysis tools, and more add further ways traders can gain an edge in markets. Summary: How PrimeXBT Provides Unparalleled Portfolio Diversity PrimeXBT offers all this and more. Margin trading is only the tip of the iceberg. The platform is also home to the Covesting copy trading module, yield accounts, weekly competitions, and the PrimeXBT trading academy. Even better, all of these tools and trading instruments are accessible from the PrimeXBT mobile app for Android and iOS devices.
