As #Bitcoin prices rally higher, over 2.1M $BTC have returned to profitability based on their realised price.

This indicates that 11.2% of the circulating supply has an on-chain cost basis between $29k and $38k.

As $ETH surpasses the $2,300 mark again, the Historical In/Out of the Money indicates that roughly 2 million addresses are back "in the Money" since yesterday.

Cryptocurrency ’is a pure trading instrument,’ hedge fund CEO says
Hedge funds are adopting crypto investments, but one asset manager says it is all a speculative play.

Not all hedge fund managers are sold on crypto as Man Group CEO Luke Ellis has compared cryptocurrencies to tulip bulbs.

Speaking to the Financial Times, Ellis remarked that the utility of crypto comes from its volatility, thus presenting the asset class as a viable trading opportunity. According to the CEO of the world’s largest publicly-traded hedge fund:

“If you look at cryptocurrencies as a whole, it is a pure trading instrument. There is no inherent worth in it whatsoever. It is a tulip bulb.”
Despite being an outmoded comparison, crypto and Bitcoin (BTC), in particular, are often compared to the “Tulipmania” — a brief period where the price of some tulip bulbs soared exponentially in the Netherlands before eventually crashing.

Ellis stated that his $127-billion hedge fund is happy to trade crypto, as there is liquidity to support long or short bets, given the choppy price action of cryptocurrencies. For Ellis, Man Group’s crypto involvement does not constitute an endorsement of the cryptocurrencies as an asset class.

According to the Man Group CEO, the hedge fund does not offer crypto as an “asset management product,” but it is one of the over 800 markets, in which the company trades.

Commenting on the prevailing crypto investment thesis, Ellis identified inflation as a major reason why cryptocurrencies are becoming more popular within asset portfolios.

Indeed, Bitcoin proponents say BTC offers a hedge against inflation and monetary debasement, especially amid the current economic recovery efforts across the globe to cope with the COVID-19 pandemic.

Ellis’ comments come as more hedge funds are becoming active in the crypto investment space. Back in June, Cointelegraph reported that United States-base hedge fund managers expect to hold over 10% of their assets in crypto.

Bitcoin and the crypto market dipping over 50% since May has been identified as an investment opportunity for big-money players in anticipation of a return to parabolic price movements by the end of the year.

#Bitcoin

Optimal bullish trade here would be a retest of demand and target liquidity (potentially add size on on S/R flip, highlighted in bright green).

A break below demand/blue box would be the trigger to get short towards 26K / 23.5K IMO.

I don't think we need yet another re-test of the same area as it may not hold this time

TA works until it doesn't. Well, TA has been off the mark for a while now. Better to go off news, fear and greed index, hash rate, etc.

@missKITTY , Agreed. TA is useful, but should be part of a much larger arsenal of tools. On-chain, fundamentals, event driven, sentiment, etc.
