    Properly - Algo & Prop trading

    Two weeks ago, we had a lossy week, and last week's capital curve is almost perfect. This shows that we have to look at trading only in the long term. A small part of the history can disrupt the true picture of the strategy.

  5. There was a glimmer of hope that the VanEck Bitcoin ETF would make history gaining SEC approval. Alas, that can got kicked down the road again until Aug 19 and the SEC wants its questions answered. VanEck Bitcoin ETF Decision Delayed as Expected To be fair, it was a pretty tenuous optimism that the VanEck Bitcoin EFT decision would be the first to be approved by the SEC. Pretty much the entire community was expecting it to be delayed. Industry-known attorney Jake Chervinsky tweeted out on Sunday night how minimal chances of approval were: 17/ So, heading into Monday, here's how I view the probabilities: – Delay: 75.0% – Denial: 24.9% – Approval: 0.1% I'll keep you updated as the process plays out. [end] — Jake Chervinsky (@jchervinsky) May 19, 2019 But then the Bitwise ETF proposal got delayed and there was no news on VanEck. People started to question what it meant. After all, this was not typical behavior from the SEC. All delays are usually bundled together. Moreover, SEC Commissioner Hester Pierce (fondly known as ‘Crypto Mom’) was speaking at Consensus, and major industry players announced their entry in the market. Could it mean the time was finally right? As expected, the SEC has delayed the VanEck bitcoin ETF proposal. Read the order here: https://t.co/OB3TBgVGwg. VanEck's new deadline is August 19. The SEC can & likely will delay one more time for a final deadline of October 18. Looks like this ended up the right explanation: https://t.co/bkzeVRt1Hg — Jake Chervinsky (@jchervinsky) May 20, 2019 Sadly not. It appears that it simply takes time for a bunch of bureaucrats in an office to type up a lengthy document. As Chervinsky stated: To be fair, the fact that the SEC delayed Bitwise and stayed silent on VanEck could mean nothing at all. However, there’s still some cause for celebration. After all, a delay is not a denial. And this time around, the SEC is actively taking steps to better understand the nature of what they’re regulating. The SEC Has Questions for VanEck The delayed decision has thrown up a lot of questions–14 to be precise–that have until mid-summer to be answered. Although, it’s actually more like 14 sections with sub-questions. Check out the full document to see the extent of the issue the SEC has over the VanEck Bitcoin ETF. There’s something like three or four additional questions in each section. In summary? It pretty much all comes back to the SEC’s fears of market manipulation. In fact, the words ‘manipulation’ or ‘manipulative’ appear no less than 18 times throughout the document. This seems to be the main concern, along with trading volumes and the viable size of the market. The SEC also wants to know how VanEck can be sure that bitcoin OTC exchanges are sufficiently regulated and transparent. What are commenters’ views on the extent to which each of these OTC platforms is regulated? What are commenters’ views on the extent to which each of these OTC platforms can, or does, conduct surveillance of bitcoin trading activity? It also has concerns over whether broker-dealers may offer fractional shares to retail traders: What are commenters’ views regarding whether brokerdealers are likely to offer fractional shares in the Trust to retail investors, permitting retail investment with a smaller financial commitment? The Takeaway? SEC Still Suspicious of Bitcoin The SEC is still suspicious of Bitcoin. In particular, its vulnerability to market manipulation. Whether these questions will generate approval or more questions and more delays is anybody’s guess. But the fact that the dialog is here is, at least, encouraging. As usual (and as expected), we’ll have to wait and see. Will the SEC eventually approve a bitcoin ETF? Share your thoughts below!

  12. US bitcoin and crypto exchange Kraken has raised over $6.5 million in a matter of days as part of a new equity sale, data has revealed. Kraken Fundraiser Hits $6.55M According to a fundraising page on BnkToTheFuture, which Kraken is using to gather the funds, investors have already contributed €5.87 million ($6.55 million) of the total €9.13 million ($10.2 million) target. In doing so, Kraken has thus passed its minimum threshold of €5,552,073 as of May 21. “We are always looking for ways to democratize access to our equity, allowing more of our valued clients to become valued investors,” officials commented on social media. “To that end, we partnered with (BnkToTheFuture) to create an opportunity to invest in Kraken[.]” CEO Jesse Powell, who was responsible for the BnkToTheFuture pitch, described Kraken as one of the top 5 exchange platforms worldwide for “legitimate” volume, with a client base of around 4 million. Its trade volume in 2018 – a bearish year for cryptocurrency overall – totalled $85 billion, while Kraken is “consistently ranked” as the most secure exchange, he added. A Bitcoin Exchange Renaissance The move comes as various major exchanges have begun performing fundraising activities of their own, albeit in varying formats. As Bitcoinist reported, Bitfinex, which lost control of funds worth $850 million last year, since opted to conduct a so-called ‘initial exchange offering’ (‘IEO’), during which it sold its new LEO tokens to private investors. Despite criticism about its operations and an associated legal case, Bitfinex was also easily able to hit its target, hitting $1 billion in investments in a matter of days. Elsewhere, corporate moves are also netting significant capital for the exchange sector. Last month, a Japanese blockchain fund invested $200 million in the operator of South Korean exchange Bithumb. Meanwhile, Bitstamp and fellow South Korean platform Korbit could soon come under the direct ownership of Disney Corp. should a separate equity deal involving a giant $13.2 billion sum go ahead. The enthusiasm is unsurprising amid the turning tide on cryptocurrency markets in 2019. While 2018 even produced losses for some exchanges – such as that operated by Japan’s GMO Internet – record on-chain volume in May provides ample opportunity for industry players to expand their profile. In February, when Bitcoin price 00 still lingered around $3500, statistics nonetheless revealed that the deposits on the five biggest exchanges combined still equalled less than 1 percent of those in JPMorgan Chase.

  16. Fundstrat Global Advisors’ Tom Lee is on a world tour. No, he isn’t pumping out pop songs or signing books. The Wall Street analyst is touting the good word of Bitcoin, and why the cryptocurrency market is ready to be catapulted into its next bull run, expected to be the biggest yet. Most recently, Lee, who became prominent in the digital asset space after becoming the poster child for Bitcoin optimism in 2017, appeared on Yahoo Finance to elaborate on why BTC is and will do so well. This is the umpteenth time he has made a Bitcoin-related appearance on mainstream media in the past six weeks. Behind The Recent Bitcoin Boom During a Monday segment of “On The Move”, Lee sat down, clad in his navy-blue suit, to try and reason why Bitcoin has been outperforming traditional assets as of late. He suggests that much of the recent move has a lot to do with uncertainty on the geopolitical and macroeconomic stage, which has recently been slammed by the ongoing U.S.-China trade war, Brexit, and the financial collapses of Venezuela, Argentina, and other nations. The Fundstrat co-founder notes that Bitcoin is acting much like “digital gold”, giving investors a chance to hedge their bets against crisis with a revolutionary asset that is digital through scarce. He isn’t the first to have suggested that the recently geopolitical trends have been a tailwind for Bitcoin and its ilk. A report from the South China Morning Post recently pointed out that after Donald Trump, the president of the U.S., announced tariff changes on Chinese imports, BTC began to rally. Simultaneously, the yuan purportedly fell to its lowest level in six months, as China looked to move against Trump. Garrick Hileman of Blockchain.com told the outlet that the Yuan has traded inversely to Bitcoin in the past. And most recently, Barry Silbert, the chief executive of industry conglomerate Digital Currency Group, told Fortune’s “Balancing The Ledger” that in this trade war, Bitcoin is acting as a “non-correlated asset”. He looks to Brexit news correlating with movements in the BTC market to further illustrate his point that this move may have much to do with geopolitical and macroeconomic tensions. Lee’s points, along with those made by his colleagues, can be contrasted to those made by Erik Voorhees, the chief executive of ShapeShift. Last week, we reported that Voorhees suggested to Bloomberg TV that the recent move is a result of investors across the board coming to the conclusion that the bottom is finally in, and have begun to scale into the market as a unit. Why Is Crypto Winter Over? Let’s say that the geopolitical strains die down, does that mean BTC will return lower again? According to Lee, likely not. In fact, he asserted that by many measures, “crypto winter” is over, no questions asked. In a recent Twitter post, the Fundstrat representative gave 13 reasons why the bear market is over. Some of these important reasons include the fact that Bitcoin quickly returned to $8,000 after the $1,700 dump on Bitstamp; the Bitcoin Misery Index passing above 89, a sign only seen in bull markets; a grow in on-chain activity and volumes, which historically have preceded rallies; and the fact that Bitcoin’s chart recently saw a bullish “golden cross” pattern” while BTC moved above its 200-day moving average in spectacular fashion. After a disturbing pullback to ~$6,200, #Bitcoin back >$8,000 further cementing positive trend intact. As we said a few weeks ago, Consensus 2019 @coindesk was to prove whether crypto winter is over… …confirmed pic.twitter.com/M8ni4g2YvX — Thomas Lee (@fundstrat) May 19, 2019 And most recently, Lee noted that the fact that Bitcoin futures contracts on BitMEX for June and September have begun to trade well above spot prices is the fourteenth sign that winter is over. And from here, the analyst expects for BTC to post new all-time highs by 2020.

  17. Bitcoin has been getting all the attention recently as it has doubled in price since early April. The big move has shifted total market capitalization over $250 billion for the first time in ten months. Ethereum has been a little slow to catch up but it has finally done so and is now approaching a critical point. Which way will ETH go? Ethereum’s Bull Pennant ETH has been in a steady uptrend for the past four months, over doubling from a February low of just over $100 to its current price. It did stall at around $170 for the best part of April, however, as Bitcoin roared away with all the gains, increasing its dominance to a 17 month high of 60 percent. For the past ten days or so Ethereum has finally lifted off breaking through that resistance at $180 and surging to a 2019 high of $270 on Thursday last week. Daily volume spike to an all-time high of almost $19 billion and ETH trade was roaring. Last week Coinbase recorded the highest weekly Ethereum trading volume since 2017. In the exchanges’s two most popular ETH markets (ETH/BTC and ETH/USD) a combined total of 3,675,570 units of ETH was traded from May 13 to 19, which at current market prices around $250 has a notional value of over $918 million; its highest total in a week since mid-December 2017. Since last week ETH has remained over $230 and has pushed back up to $250 where it has been trading for the past couple of days. The difference this time is that Ethereum is not being used for ICO investment but being accumulated by investors. Long time crypto trader ‘CryptoFibonacci’ has been looking at the charts noticing the formation of a bull pennant; $ETH Daily Chart. Bull pennant. Stay tuned.#ETH pic.twitter.com/OVATRLX7n1 — CryptoFibonacci (@CryptoFib) May 21, 2019 A break out usually occurs when the end of this triangle is reached and looking at the longer term trend it is likely to be to the upside. The bigger picture, however, shows ETH at the top of a rising wedge which indicates heavy resistance at this level. What About Fundamentals? Rival projects such as EOS and Tron, in addition to Bitcoin maximalists, like to constantly bash Ethereum. In the opposing corner are altcoin aficionados such as ‘Ambroid’ who recently updated a tweet pointing out; “Updating thread after 5 months. A total of 187623 $ETH Token Contracts found. That’s an 18% increase from 158265. Slowing down in %, but the absolute numbers are still massive. Uncontested leader.” Updating thread after 5 months.

    Taking into account the BOINC REC Scheduler, depending on circumstances it can take as few as 11 days and up to 21 days for the Scheduler to balance out the projects work load. Those circumstances are time, how many attached projects, the percentage/severity of change between projects. If you have one project attached, you should have consistent reliable results in a week to 10 days. Don't forget, first you have to finish the work unit and send it back to the project server where its results need to be compared to it's twin and then credit awarded by the project server and then the Gridcoin Pool or Solo needs to record those credit rewards... So it can "be a process" to receive the rewards and that process can add an undetermined amount of time from starting on a work unit until the time that you are actually rewarded for it and have results that you can see.

  20. Despite the fact that Bitcoin (BTC) is seemingly out of a bear market, the underlying cryptocurrency industry has still been susceptible to bad news. Just weeks ago, Binance was revealed to have lost $40 million worth of BTC and iFinex, the parent company of Bitfinex and Tether, came under legal fire. And most recently, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has revealed it will not be approving a Bitcoin exchange-traded fund (ETF) proposal from VanEck and SolidX, and will instead by delaying its verdict. Although this news would have killed the vibe in 2017 and 2018, the market has been widely unfazed by what some call a “non-event.” Verdict Delayed On VanEck’s Bitcoin ETF In a document filed by the SEC on Monday, the agency revealed that it will be exercising its right to delay its decision on the VanEck proposal by 90 days, setting the next deadline to August 19th. The agency cited concerns such as there being not enough infrastructure to prevent “fraudulent and manipulative acts and practices”. No specific examples were given, but the SEC was likely triggered to deny such an application after seemingly one entity triggered a $1,700 flash crash last week, and after Bitfinex was revealed to potentially be illiquid. This news comes just a few days after the SEC issued a similar verdict on a similar application from Bitwise, which is also looking for a regulatory stamp of approval on its crypto-backed fund. As expected, the SEC has delayed the VanEck bitcoin ETF proposal. Read the order here: https://t.co/OB3TBgVGwg. VanEck's new deadline is August 19. The SEC can & likely will delay one more time for a final deadline of October 18. Looks like this ended up the right explanation: https://t.co/bkzeVRt1Hg — Jake Chervinsky (@jchervinsky) May 20, 2019 Harrowing as it may seem though, these regulatory maneuvers were entirely expected. Jake Chervinsky, a crypto-specializing lawyer formerly of Kobre & Kim, explained this weekend that the cryptocurrency market isn’t ready for a regulated product. He points to the fact that in the order delaying the Bitwise verdict, SEC staffers mentioned the nature, efficiency, and manipulative susceptibility of the Bitcoin market, hinting that the fact that it is far from amicable towards current conditions. The document then goes on to reference the Bitwise report that 95% of all spot Bitcoin volumes are fake, which was meant to comfort the SEC, not irk it. Long story short, the SEC wasn’t expected to be ready to delve headfirst into cryptocurrency, despite the developments that have been made in terms of custody, surveillance, and overall market maturity. These cynical expectations have allowed the space as a whole to shrug off this recent news, almost as if nothing has happened at all. Sentiment is still running high, in other words. Gabor Gurbacs, a digital asset strategist at VanEck, said that his firm’s push towards creating “better-regulated, safer, and more liquid” digital asset markets will not cease with this news. Others simply pointed out that BTC has actually rallied by 5% since the SEC’s latest comment, accentuating that this news hasn’t hampered this market in any way. as trader “Mr. TA” writes, “Now that the ETF nonsense is out of the way, I think the markets are free to move up again.” The VanEck SolidX #Bitcoin #ETF decision has been postponed by the SEC. We continue the hard work towards better-regulated, safer and more liquid digital assets markets. Bitcoin is too big to ignore. Vires in numeris! Public document and timelines: https://t.co/F9cV95CHKN pic.twitter.com/hgyhVE0nJr — Gabor Gurbacs (@gaborgurbacs) May 20, 2019 Do We Even Need An ETF? This begs the question — do we even need a Bitcoin ETF at this point? Likely not. The thing is, the cryptocurrency market is getting financialized with or without an ETF. As popular commentator “The Don” draws attention to, soon, millions of common consumers will be able to purchase Bitcoin and other digital currencies directly from their TD Ameritrade and E*Trade accounts, barring that the rumors are false of course. They can delay our ETF, but they can't delay the progress we've made in the last 6 months. Soon millions of folks will be able to buy directly from their Ameritrade account. $BTC — The Don (@DonnyCrypto) May 20, 2019 More importantly, Bakkt, the cryptocurrency play backed by the NYSE’s owner, is expected to launch its physically-backed Bitcoin futures contract in July. While this isn’t an ETF per se, many expect for this product to have a similar positive effect on the underlying cryptocurrency market as an ETF. There is still hope for an ETF though. As reported by Decrypt Media, SEC Commissioner Hester Peirce told conference-goers at Consensus, New York that now, or even one year ago, is the right time for an ETF. The fact that the cryptocurrency ecosystem has an “inside woman” does bode well for ETFs, just give it some time.

  21. After bitcoin’s recent bullish steam in recent weeks, analysts at JP Morgan, the world’s sixth largest bank, think the bitcoin price appears overextended and could be in for another correction. That’s per a note created by Nikolaos Panigirtzoglou and other analysts analysts at the firm. The document was first circulated on May 17th, the morning after the bitcoin price fell from $7,800 USD to $7,100. In the ensuing days, BTC has gained that ground back and is currently trading over $7,800 again. Yet even with the genesis cryptocurrency’s reconsolidation after its weekend dip, Morgan’s analysts think the coin’s price may currently be beyond its fair value. The firm’s experts arrived at that estimation by calculating the average costs associated with mining and then compared that sum to the bitcoin price. To that end, Panigirtzoglou and his peers wrote the recent uptrend was reminiscent of a period during bitcoin’s last bull run: “Over the past few days, the actual price has moved sharply over marginal cost. This divergence between actual and intrinsic values carries some echoes of the spike higher in late 2017, and at the time this divergence was resolved mostly by a reduction in actual prices.” Of course, even if a correction is near, it could end up being just the latest blip in an indefinite series of cycles. Back in February before BTC started its latest run, Panigirtzoglou projected “more participation” from institutions would be coming to the crypteconomy: “The stability that we are seeing right now in the cryptocurrency market is setting the stage for more participation by institutional investors in the future. The cryptocurrency market was a new market. It went through a bubble phase, the burst.” So while it remains to be seen where the bitcoin price will go in the short-term, there’s still plenty of room for growth as enterprises continue to come marching into the cryptocurrency ecosystem. Bitcoin Still Sitting Pretty So Far in 2019 Since the beginning of the year, the bitcoin price has outperformed the S&P 500, the NASDAQ 100, gold, and other popular mainstream investments — not bad for a digital coin that was worth less than one penny a decade ago. With renewed buy pressure returning after the dissipation of the 2018 bear market’s pessimistic atmosphere, bitcoin is now hovering around $7,815. That price puts BTC up 48 percent on the month and up 101 percent over the last three months. Notably, the bitcoin price has now registered three straight weeks of double-digit percentage rises — a performance the OG cryptocurrency hasn’t put on since 2017, when its price briefly ripped up to $20,000. Of course, it’s an open question whether or not the crypto can match or surpass that valuation in another full-fledged cryptoeconomy bull run. But what’s clear already is that bitcoin’s recent uptrend has also helped spur buy pressure around the top cryptocurrencies in general. For example, last week popular U.S. crypto exchange Coinbase facilitated more than $904 million worth of ether (ETH) trades, a record for the platform. The second-largest crypto per market capitalization is up 70 percent since three months ago. Up or Down, JP Morgan’s Crypto Activities Grow Blockchain developers at JP Morgan have been increasingly busy in recent times. Back in February, it was revealed that the bank was launching JPM Coin, a stablecoin-like token that the firm was going to test out in payments trials at some point in 2019. The token is being built atop Quorum, which is JP Morgan’s in-house permissioned fork of Ethereum. A few weeks later, the bank also revealed that its 200-member Interbank Information Network — also built on Quorum — was launching settlement functionalites, making the project a de facto Ripple competitor. Moreover, as of this month, enterprises can now build applications for themselves via Quorum using Microsoft’s Azure Blockchain Service.

  22. Listen up, U.S. taxpayers: the IRS is getting ready to publish its first guidance on cryptocurrency taxation subjects in years. IRS Commissioner Charles Rettig noted as much in a response letter to the Congressional Blockchain Caucus, which had wrote to Rettig’s agency back in April requesting a series of public clarifications, such as how U.S. cryptocurrency users should be taxed on crypto forks for example. Therein, the commissioner said the answers to the caucus’s range of cryptocurrency questions could be expected in short order: “I share your belief that taxpayers deserve clarity on basic issues related to the taxation of virtual currency transactions and have made it a priority of the IRS to issue guidance […] We have been considering these issues and intend to publish guidance addressing these and other issues soon.” The commitment to further clarity comes after American crypto users have been complaining for years about an ambiguous regulatory thicket in the country. The IRS has hitherto treated digital currencies as property, while other U.S. government agencies approach them as commodities, securities, and money. The IRS has told Congress that it will issue new cryptocurrency tax guidance soon. https://t.co/z0oEi0dbfC — Coin Center (@coincenter) May 20, 2019 Of course, the IRS can’t clear up that confusing regulatory landscape in one fell swoop. But any additional clarifications the agency can offer will be gladly welcomed by traders who want to pay their taxes accurately. How Should Cryptocurrencies Be Treated? It’s a Layered Question — There’s Many Twists and Turns Ahead The IRS treats crypto as property, which makes it taxable in a very specific way in the U.S.– namely by bringing capital gain and/or capital loss implications into play. Whether that’s the right way to treat cryptocurrency is a question ultimately for the American people to decide. If enough pro-crypto politicos were eventually elected to Congress, then federal legislation could be passed that could instruct the IRS to not tax crypto as property, among any number of other similar mandates. And that’s just one major regulatory wrinkle among hundreds in a single national jurisdiction. Beyond just the people, the world’s most powerful institutions are also increasingly grappling with how to approach the cryptocurrency ecosystem. For example, in a paper published this month by the European Central Bank (ECB), the institution that backs the euro and shapes the currency’s monetary policy said that “crypto-assets” did not currently pose a threat to the financial stability of the Eurozone economy … for the time being. Indeed, the ECB said that threat could grow in the future: “The sector nevertheless requires continuous careful monitoring, as market developments are dynamic and linkages to the wider financial sector may increase to more significant levels in the future.” Accordingly, one of the most draconian Western takes yet on how cryptocurrencies should be treated came from U.S. Representative Brad Sherman earlier this month, when he proposed the creation of a bill that would ban cryptocurrency ownership in America altogether. Today in Congress Rep. Sherman called for a bill to ban all cryptocurrencies. This is why Coin Center is needed in DC now more than ever. pic.twitter.com/jgikm7z8bI — Coin Center (@coincenter) May 9, 2019 Why so harsh? Rep. Sherman said it would be good to “nip [crypto] in the bud” because “it is the announced purpose of the supporters of cryptocurrency to take … power away” from the U.S. dollar, which the congressman attributed as being the foundation of America’s power on the international stage. New Global Standards to Corral Crypto Coming In other regulatory news, the inter-governmental Financial Action Task Force (FATF) is releasing new standards recommendations in June that will see the body asking member nations to enforce tougher rules on cryptocurrency exchanges. Specifically, the forthcoming FATF recommendations would make it so such platforms have to provide relevant customer data among each other in order to facilitate transactions — a bank-like responsibility. The prospect has already proven unpopular with stakeholders in the cryptoeconomy, though how entrenched the recommendations will become is up in the air for now.
