In terms of stock markets and markets in general, we usually see some weakness in the first half of December, but in the days after Christmas, markets tend to exhibit a “Santa Rally.”
Of course, we have the Fed meeting on the 14th, and we’ll likely see some volatility.
Sentiment: Wait and see mode, tactical trades
- ETH is still very docile. It’s been trading in the same range, trying to break out, then getting back in.
- $1100 is somehow miraculously still holding as support.
- Until this area is decisively broken, I can’t really get too bearish.
- Profitable trades have been basically buying toward the bottom of the range and selling towards resistance.
- In terms of longer-term holdings, I think this is a good spot to DCA.
Bitcoin is a bit dicier, but I guess that’s to be expected because of the whole Grayscale drama that’s going on. I think DCG will do whatever they have to save Grayscale at the expense of everything else, since it’s a cash cow.
- In terms of price, we’ve broken down and established a new range
- It’s just a matter of trading from level to level.
- I’d look to buy dips toward the lower end of the range until we see a breakout either way.
- As long as we stay under 108 on the DXY, I think this continues to move lower and that should be supportive of risk whether it’s stocks or crypto.
- 200MA at 105.5 is expected to serve as a strong area of support on the first touch.
Litecoin actually has a more constructive chart than both Bitcoin and ETH. It’s one of the better-looking charts that I’ve seen lately.
- When these long-term moving averages tend to cluster in one place, I’ve found it to be quite a reliable sign of reversal.
- This is what traditional technical analysts would call a golden cross.
- Could be a new bull trend developing here.
- Something to keep an eye on.
Valhalla is a collection of avatars that can be used in-game. The teaser art looked really good, so we’ll have to see how these develop.
Cel Mates is another one that’s holding up really well and still hasn’t been revealed. This is by McBess, an artist who’s quite well-regarded in the NFT space.
The Memes have been doing really well. These are basically popular memes that have been minted by various artists as part of this whole collection by punk6529.
RarePass – I covered these in the roundup and they have just gone through the roof. The thesis behind these is that you get pieces from artists like XCOPY whose regular art sells for like hundreds of ETH. So this is a way to get exposure to these top artists in the space without actually having to bid and go out and spend a crazy amount of money.
Cryptobirbs was a weekend sensation that’s died off now. It’s supposed to be a cross between CryptoToadz and CryptoDickButts.
How to Lend with Banker Joe by Trader Joe
