Not sure if anyone's been watching, but Tech Trader recently flagged a bottom in Ripple on the daily chart.  Let's hope this one finally marks the beginning of something other than another pump and dump lol

Ethereum is up 600% from IPO.  Another one of my half-forgotten investments.

Can't figure out how to trade the thing though. Sigh

Ripple finally back above the daily MA.  Supposed news about a Chinese bank now using the currency for back-end.

The first "Comprehensive" strategy I ever built finally sold SPY after 2 years.  Not a particularly strong strategy but just entertaining to see it finally make a move after seeming like it would never make another trade again.  The reason for selling is a "spinning top" candle.

Looks like that was Ripple Labs buying out Jed's sell order.  Also means Jed might have broken his agreement.

Huge buy just went through on Ripple (XRP-USD).  Seems like someone just bought 100M XRP.  Completely dwarfs any volume we've previously seen.

It looks like the low oil prices are confusing the markets because now tar sands and franking are no longer worth while.  Statically, the SP are ranging and momentum is slowing down.  I am not at all an expert,  but doesn't thus mean wait til there are breakouts and then get in on a pullback?

I'm curious as to what you guys think of the oil (say USO). I haven't done any detailed homework, but something is happening there.

Bottoming? Just a short squeeze? I'd love to hear your thoughts.

Update: added screen shot.

bottoming for sure. however, this move as of today is definitely extended,
so avoid for now. id look for a consolidation at the bottom or a failed
breakdown for confirmation. i did manage to pull a 4% gain out of OAS
yesterday but missed out on the 30% move Sad. oh well

Added an RSS Feed to avoid having to repeatedly check the site:
http://ripple.tech-trader.net/rss.aspx

And another potential trade for XRP/USD (depending on how we close today).

Apparently Bitcoin flagged a buy earlier last week around $300.  Was too busy watching Ripple to notice.

Also interesting is that it flagged my more significant consolidation breakout algorithm on the daily time frame.  The other time this flagged for XRP was in Nov 2013.

Looks like XRP is finally moving...

Just got to take out that previous high now. Hopefully the price increase is stable this time and doesn't give itself back in a few days.

Just noticed I have a tentative buy signal on XRP (last time on BTC).  First in a while.  Will be interesting to see if it works out.  It still needs until end of day to confirm though.

Looks like Jed is going for a direct replacement of Ripple with Stellar:

Bah, the signal didn't confirm as the price went too low.  Disappointing but I guess it makes sense with Stellar just being announced.

Another arb opportunity.  Bitfinex is pricing below $640 while Coinbase and Bitstamp are above it.  Usually Bitfinex is about $10 above the other exchanges.

Tech Trader's bitcoin dislocation trade worked out.  Personally, I'm holding longer, but it's a nice first trade for the automation on Bitcoin.

are you using TRIN as part of your algo to determine the automated bottom?

Please at least post a chart and explanation.  Otherwise it's hard to evaluate.

Bitcoin from yesterday retested the low $600s this morning.  Got out and re-added again around $575.  Will add more at the lower trendlines if support at $550 breaks.

Arbitrage opportunity.  Bitfinex has bitcoin at $604 while Coinbase and Bitstamp have it around $585.  I just tried it and it works.  Sent the bitcoin I bought from Coinbase to Bitfinex and sold it for $600
