Whoa! Why are Bitcoin Prices Booming?

Bitcoin prices are booming!  As we always say, look at the fundamentals and you will realize that Bitcoin is unstoppable. So, what are the reasons?  Here are a few to consider:-

 

 

Who is behind the Spike in Bitcoin prices?  “Bitcoin is up 30% since Friday’s opening prices. It’s doubled in a month. Where’s the demand coming from? It looks like China. Chinese stocks are down around 8% in the past month. Meanwhile, global stocks have been bid (German stocks +6%, U.S. stocks +7%). And gold is flat. But bond yields (as discussed above) are down about 15 basis points (all over the past month)–which means demand coming into the safety of Treasurys (bond prices up, yields, down). With that, it looks like Chinese money is going into bitcoin, global stocks and bonds. But not gold. Remember, the story of the latter 2016 and early 2017 period, out of China, has been the Chinese government’s efforts to restrict domestic capital from leaving China. It doesn’t appear that they are winning.” Forbes

China driving Regulation – After the People’s Bank of China stepped in, not all bitcoin exchanges in China are back online however, high traded volume still coming out of China.  The country has just been downgraded, more CYN could find its way into Bitcoin as the economy continues to struggle.
