The third largest cryptocurrency exchange in the world by 24-hour trading volume, Huobi has announced in an email sent to investors in Japan on Wednesday, that they are to remove the Japanese option from its homepage and suspends trading services from July 2, as reported by Coinpost.
As suggested in the Coinpost report, Huobi Pro made the decision to withdraw Japan-based services because is not registered with the Financial Services Agency (FSA), Japan’s financial watchdog, as mandated under a money transaction law introduced in 2016. It is not currently clear if the exchange has been contacted by the FSA over the issue.
While we are on watchdogs, another significant headline that fits into the exchange category is that Korean Watchdog is to tighten the rules on crypto exchange bank accounts.
South Korea’s financial regulator has amended the anti-money laundering rules that apply to cryptocurrency exchanges in the country, requiring domestic banks to tighten up monitoring of related bank accounts.
According to an announcement from the Financial Services Commission (FSC) on Wednesday, the amendment – which will initially be in effect for a year – means domestic banks who provide services to crypto exchanges must now monitor all the accounts held by an exchange.
Out of the news items that’s not in the exchange related category, the most significant one is that Facebook has updated its policy to allow cryptocurrencies to once again be advertised, while upholding its ban on the promotion of initial coin offerings (ICOs), in an announcement published Tuesday, June 26, as reported by cointelegraph.
From yesterday’s open at 6251$, the price of Bitcoin has decreased by 2.66% as it’s now sitting at 6090$.
As you can see on the hourly chart, from the resistance found at 6277$, the price has been in a constant steady decline. The price interacted with the downtrends resistance line with a quick spike in order to test that resistance. We can expect that the price is going to continue its downward movement today and go to the support line at 6000$.

From yesterday’s open at 461.22$ the price of Ethereum has decreased by 6% coming to around 432$ where it is currently sitting.
Looking at the hourly chart we can see that the price is currently on the levels of the downtrend resistance line where the price is looking for support, but as the trend is down the support goes down as well. We will see if the support hold, but lower low is more likely at this point.

In the last 24 hours, the price of Ripple has decreased by 3.91% from 0.4819$ to 0.4629$.
Looking at the hourly chart we can see that the price is on the same levels of the recent low as it retested the 0 Fibo level. It has recovered slightly but not nearly that fast in order to show some sign of strength, which is why I think we are in for more downside today.
Ripple is in the sell zone.

Looking at the charts of the three cryptos we covered in this report, I am under the impression that the prices are struggling and aren’t stable. They are at or close to the levels of the recent low as the recovery was short-lived. We are potently going to see another low today, but the continuation of the stagnation with some sideways movement is more likely.
