Analysis from around the web:

Sentiment and Politics:

A sign of an impending bull run for many technical analysts has reared its head this week, with bitcoin performing a long awaited golden cross on its technical indicators. While we’re all hopeful of a price jump in the crypto markets to offset the devastating 2018 year, it should be reminded to always have a stop loss set for those jumping in now. Risk aversion is always better than losing everything, and proper investing strategies always start with a level head.

Another pattern we’ve begun to see is projects moving ahead with focus leaning towards regulatory approval. We’d already seen major player begin to add it into their business strategies, however Emmanuel Aidoo, Head of Digital Market Assets at Credit Suess believes we still have a culture among our banks to overcome before crypto can begin seeing even greater adoption. It’s exciting to see how any impending price actions may hasten or even cause regulators to possibly lean back to see what may unfold. The future isn’t always concrete, but we have interesting waters ahead coming into the mid year.

As always, this is Derek Clauson, signing off. I’ll see everyone next week!
