Bank of England: Central Bank Digital Currencies Can Jeopardize Commercial Banks

The Bank of England has issued a May 2018 staff working paper, which suggests that the adoption of central bank digital currencies (CBDCs) could pose a competition threat to commercial banks.




From yesterday’s open, the price of Bitcoin dropped by 3.23% going from $7343 to $7117 where it is currently sitting.


Looking at the daily chart we can see that the price is between the baseline support (black line) and the triangle support (blue line). After those, there is a third support level which is an unconfirmed baseline support 2 (dotted line). The price is likely heading down toward one of them, as the search for support continues.


Zooming into the hourly chart we can see that we are about $135 away from the triangle support line at around $7000 and that the price is going to meet that level. When the price does reach that level, I would be looking for either a sign of a trend reversal or trend continuation which is a more likely scenario from a probability standpoint. If the trend continues I am expecting the price of Bitcoin to fall to the dotted line which is an unconfirmed baseline support 2 at around $6600.

From yesterday’s open, the price of Ethereum has dropped by 7.68% from $568.9 to $522 where it is currently.


On the daily chart, we can see that the price bounced off of the 0.236 Fibonacci level, but judging by the hight of the candle the momentum behind the bounce was not strong enough to even come back to the prior support line which now serves as resistance at $539.5.


Zooming into the hourly chart, we can see that the price action is currently in a triangle from which it’s likely heading lower, and we are going to see a breakout from the downside.

  • Ethereum is in the sell zone.
  • Oscillators are on buy, but with 9 on neutral, and moving averages signal a sell.

Looking at the daily chart we can see that the price is interacting with the prior support which now serves as resistance at $0.573.


If we zoom into the hourly chart we can see that the price is above it, but we need to wait for the candle to close to be sure, as selling pressure can slap the price back below it, leaving a wick.

Crypto Coin Market News: Prices are getting pushed to new lows which may trigger some buying. That’s why I am expecting some short-term sideways movement, before another final drop. Bitcoin is near the support levels, Ethereum is in a triangle and Ripple is struggling to move back above the support line which means that price action is showing signs of a struggle. These are significant levels on which the prices of three major cryptos are at the moment and what happens today will affect what happens in the following days. If these lows trigger buying, we can see the prices bounce back to the prior high level, if not we are in for lower lows.
