Yesterday evening, after an emergency rate cut of 50 basis points in early March, the Fed suddenly cut its interest rate by 100 basis points for the second time. The target range of the federal funds rate has been reduced to 0% -0.25%, and the quantitative easing program has been launched, and a large-scale stimulus of US $ 700 billion will be launched in a few months. In less than a month, the Fed has extinguished the interest rate cut card, but the market's response has intensified: the three major US stock index futures did not buy it, opened lower and lowered to a meltdown. Affected by the incident, the US dollar index weakened significantly today. Gold, as a safe haven for sovereign currencies, rose as much as 3% during the session.
At present, there is still no obvious inflection point for the new crown epidemic abroad, and the downward pressure on the global economy has further increased. At the same time, the debt crisis on the verge of superimposing once every ten years or so has brought huge systemic risks to economies such as the United States. If it cannot be eliminated within a limited time, it will likely trigger an economic crisis similar to 2008. Over the past decade or so, US corporate bonds have nearly tripled, especially BBB-grade low-level bonds have increased nearly five-fold, and the imminent maturity of "junk debt" has caused market concerns. Moreover, the US Federal Reserve ’s current US $ 700 billion stimulus plan is far less stimulating than the US $ 800 billion in the subprime crisis.
On the Bitcoin Genesis Block, "Satoshi Nakamoto" recorded the headline of the Times headline: "On January 3, 2009, the Minister of Finance was on the verge of implementing the second round of emergency bank assistance." The sentence shows the original intention of "Satoshi Nakamoto". However, Bitcoin, as a decentralized peer-to-peer payment system, has recently shown a high degree of linkage with the performance of US stocks, making investors question "digital gold". Bitcoin has the dual attributes of risk assets and safe-haven assets. Recently, it is mainly affected by the related factors of the former: the risk of capital liquidity triggers a chain reaction of "cash is king", and even downward pressure on gold.
At present, the sentiment of global capital markets is still extremely unstable. Under the downward pressure of risky assets such as US stocks, the price of Bitcoin will be affected. As for when the turnaround will come, follow-up also depends on the intensity and breadth of quantitative easing in various countries. Only when sovereign currencies such as the "King of Cash" and the US dollar are expected to depreciate, mainstream funds will seek safe-haven assets such as gold, and Bitcoin with anti-inflation risk will usher in a real test.
First, the spot BTC market
Affected by the Fed's interest rate cut news, yesterday BTC saw a spike in the market, approaching a maximum of $ 6,000. But in the next hour, it was beaten back to its original shape, indicating that there was a lot of pressure above. Looking at the distribution of chips recently traded, the $ 5,300 area is the most concentrated, but it fell below today and will continue to test support shortly.
Second, the spot ETH market
ETH linked the bitcoin upward pin, and did not stand at the previous day's rebound high of $ 136. Currently below the $ 120 chip concentration area, support is under test.
Third, the spot BCH market
After the BCH linkage pin-up, the chip concentration area has also fallen by about 176 US dollars, and continues to test support.
Fourth, the spot LTC market
The LTC Bollinger Band opened downward, and today fell below the $ 35 shock zone. The amount of current release is not obvious, and there is no obvious panic.
V. Spot EOS Quotes
EOS broke down and fell, and the amount released could tend to increase, showing wide fluctuations in the bottom range. A break below $ 1.8 will test the previous low.
Six, spot ETC market
After inserting ETC upwards of USD 5.2, the volume is obviously around USD 4.5, and it is more likely that the short-term detection will be lower. On the news, it is expected that the second production cut will be completed tomorrow afternoon, with a reduction of more than 20%, and there may be a slight rebound, but it will not have much impact on the trend.
1. Long line (1-3 years)
Although the long-term trend of BTC is bad, but the price is not far from the bottom, it is a good time for Tun Coin to invest. You can refer to the coin storage indicator. The smart contract platform leader ETH, altcoin leader LTC, DPoS leader EOS, BTC fork currency leader BCH, and ETH fork currency leader ETC can be configured on dips.
2. Midline (January to March)
Affected by the financial environment, panic persists, and there is a possibility that Bitcoin will continue to bottom out, and those with small positions will be involved in batches.
3． Short-term (1-3 days)
Short-term instability, wait and see.
