Where are Cryptocurrency prices heading this year?

It’s fair to say that 2018 has brought mixed news for the alternative currencies market. Since the turn of the year, typical Bitcoin prices have shown much less volatility. Gargantuan daily swings seem to be a thing of the past. The bad news is that the trend for Bitcoin (and most other crpytocurrencies) has been steadily downward. Worse still, there appears to be no real news that may give support to the price and this trend could still have further to run. The days of Bitcoin featuring in the news reports seem to be over, and the public understanding of what it is doesn’t seem to have improved one jot.

One example of a hands-off system when share trading is to simply follow the signs. And you surely cannot get any better signs than directors, for they possess insider knowledge that we mere mortals cannot. And while they may be barred from disseminating this knowledge, part of it may be quite clear in their purchase intentions of stock of their own company.

My Cryptocurrency Trading Strategy for Bitcoin/Ethereum

It’s obvious that currencies such as Bitcoin can’t be ignored. The extreme price volatility means that on any given day, the Bitcoin price may be a news story, be it a rise or a fall. And it’s fairly true that at least for some people, extremely big gains have been made. It seems very likely that in the future that some of these tokens may become an alternative store of wealth and as such, they represent a chance for diversification for the passive investor.
