BTC/CNY

  • "Chine plans to stamp out all remaining cryptocurrency trading in the country by blocking access to overseas-based websites and removing related applications from app stores. The moves were outlined in a report on Sunday by Financial News, a publication under the People’s Bank of China, which said the aim was to snuff out the “dying cinders” of cryptocurrency trading and initial coin offerings “which are glowing once more.” Faced with Chinese citizens who continue to trade cryptocurrency on platforms operated beyond the country’s reach, or take part in initial coin offerings, authorities will “ratchet up oversight in a sustained manner,” the report said. 
  • "After launching a campaign last year, authorities eliminated most cryptocurrency trading in the country. China’s share of trading plummeted from 90 percent of the world to below one percent, the report said."
  • "That crackdown sent Chinese cryptocurrency traders to overseas platforms operated in Hong Kong and Japan. The latest regulatory moves aim to cut off access to them."

By the way, 0.7036 is the daily bearish reversal level, and if the price breaks this level to below so the bearish reversal will be started.

NZDUSD

  • "The New Zealand Dollar turned lower as expected, breaking the rising trend guiding the currency higher against its US counterpart since early December. The plunge played out against a backdrop of risk aversion that gripped financial markets amid worries about a steep Fed rate hike cycle."
  • "Near-term support is now at 0.7186, the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement, with a break below that on a daily closing basis opening the door for a challenge of the 50% level at 0.7109. Alternatively, a move back above the 23.6% Fib at 0.7282 and support-turned-resistance at 0.7321 exposes 0.7434 anew."
  • "The bearish chart setup appeared to be reinforced by attractive risk/reward parameters and a short NZD/USD position was activated at 0.7275, initially targeting 0.7186. A stop-loss will be activated on a daily close above 0.7321. Partial profit will be booked and the stop-loss trailed to breakeven upon hitting the first objective."

Crypto News - "There's Nothing Wrong With The Crypto Markets" (based on the article)

Ripple daily chart

  • "Investors have pointed to many different factors as causes for the drop. “At first, people said it was Bitcoin futures expiring,” says Kyle Samani, managing partner at Austin-based crypto investment firm Multicoin Capital. Some have cited reports that China is planning to ban crypto-asset trading on all exchanges, including those based in other countries. Others discussed impending U.S. regulation or claimed that people were selling to pay taxes, according to Samani. And Monday’s steep drop in the U.S. stock market might have caused more people to sell their crypto to lower their portfolio risk, he acknowledges."
  • "But he thinks there’s a simpler reason at work: “The crypto market got overheated,” he says. “November through January was insane. Especially some of the altcoins—it was ludicrous.” He points to Ripple, whose XRP coin reached a market value of more than $140 billion, even though Ripple’s technology was only being piloted at some banks, and not fully adopted."

BitCoin Intra-Day

"Senate Banking Committee Chair Mike Crapo said today Congress may need to give the Securities and Exchange Commission and other financial regulators more power and clarity to regulate Bitcoin and other virtual currencies. He said the risks of investing in ICOs and cryptocurrencies are significant because many promoters are not complying with US securities laws and because investors who put money into them may have their money could be sent overseas without their knowledge. Another risk to investors, said the regulator, is the SEC and state securities regulators may not be able to effectively pursue the overseas bad actors in the products."

Crypto News - "Most Crypto Coins Are Going to Zero" (based on the article)

BTC/USD daily

  • "If you’re a big believer in holding lesser-known cryptocurrencies, you’ll want to sit up and take notice. Barry Silbert, CEO of crypto holding company Digital Currency Group (DCG), surprised an audience full of crypto fans at Yahoo Finance’s “All Markets Summit: Crypto” event in New York on Wednesday. Aside from a handful of coins like Bitcoin, Ethereum Classic and Zcash, he said, “I think most of the others are going to zero.” Silbert, 41, built a name for himself on Wall Street by founding Second Market, a platform where people traded illiquid assets like shares in private tech companies. In 2015, he sold Second Market to Nasdaq and founded Digital Currency Group, which has invested in red-hot startups like Coinbase and owns crypto news site Coindesk. Silbert was named to Forbes’ inaugural list of the richest people in cryptocurrencies, with an estimated crypto net worth of $400 to $500 million."
  • "Why does he think so many cryptocurrencies will disappear? “Most of these tokens don’t have real utility,” he said Wednesday. “Most of them are not differentiated from others. In the long run, I think there’s only going to be one digital gold. I think there’s only going to be one privacy-focused token. I think there’s going to be one main smart-contract platform.” This is a long-term prediction, he emphasized. “It may take 20 years to get there.” Silbert is still making bets on newer tokens, as illustrated by the assets DCG holds."
