GBPCAD – Update. Price has began to drop after yesterdays GBP boost, it’s closed back in the S/R zone. This could still be an area of support, or the price could continue to drop as per my original prediction.
NZDUSD. Mentioned yesterday about the bearish pinbar formation for this pair. If USD continued it’s weakness, this could have broke through. However, the USD seemed to gain some strength back late in the day forcing this to close again below the resistance, forming another bearish pinbar – 2 bearish pinbars, rejected strong level, plus MACD crossover… I’ve placed an entry order to go short at 0.73500
USDJPY. Similar to above. USD found strength at a strong support level where the ongoing range has bottomed out since April 2017. Bullish pinbar formed, so long entry order placed at 108.910

If I change my portfolio to BTC Value, my portfolio shows I’m 20% up in my investment.
20% is a great return on investment. Great if I’m going to be buying my yacht in BTC.
It shows that my investments are holding strong or increasing against BTC. However, as most crypto’s are only bought or sold by BTC, it means all those altcoins are tied to BTC when valuing them in terms of Fiat (EUR/GBP/USD)
As Bitcoin has dropped and continues to drop against it’s BTCUSD trendline, therefor all my altcoins are dropping in value against Fiat.
As stated, my altcoins are in good stead. They are strengthening overall against the only currency they are tradable with. If these were directly tradeable with Fiat currency (and it’s only a matter of time before exchanges open up these avenues.
