June Results: Gold Brings Astronomical Profits to NordFX's Top 3 Traders

The brokerage firm NordFX has summarised the trading performance of its clients for June 2024. Additionally, the social trading services PAMM and CopyTrading, as well as the income generated by the company's IB partners, have been evaluated.

- The leader of the month is a trader from South Asia, account No. 1773XXX, with a profit of USD 82,933. This impressive "astronomical" result was achieved through trades in gold (XAU/USD), a favourite instrument among NordFX's most successful traders.
- In second place, with a result of USD 59,135, is another representative from South Asia, account No. 1771XXX, who also achieved success through the "golden" pair XAU/USD.
- A trader from West Asia, account No. 1774XXX, secured third place with earnings of USD 58,653 from gold transactions in June.

In NordFX's passive investment services, the following developments were noted:

- In the PAMM service, several startups caught attention due to their activity. AI Scalping Master High Risk showed a 100% profit in exactly 100 days, and Zenix 786 achieved a 72% profit in 99 days. These results are impressive, but the maximum drawdown for both managers was also significant – 46% and 36%, respectively. Therefore, the "High Risk" note in the name of the first account is not just words but a warning that trading in financial markets is risky. Investors must exercise maximum caution when entrusting money to any manager.

- In CopyTrading, we continue to monitor the performance of the signal yahmat-forex, which recently celebrated its anniversary. Over 372 days, the provider of this signal managed to show a yield of 467% with a maximum drawdown of 47%. Among startups, the signal AA Strategy is notable, with a profit of 299% in just two months, though it also had a drawdown of more than 63%.

When considering subscribing to a signal, besides profit and drawdown, we advise paying attention to the manager's own capital. For example, in the case of AA Strategy, it is only USD 142. Now imagine you subscribe to this signal with the same lot (1:1), but your starting capital is not USD 142 but USD 425, which is three times more. In this case, your drawdown would be only 21% of the deposit, though the profit would also decrease from 299% to approximately 100%. However, doubling your capital in just two months is still quite impressive.

It should be noted here that the purpose of this explanation is not to convince you to subscribe to this particular signal but to remind you of the basic rules of money management and ways to reduce financial risks.

Among NordFX's IB partners, the top three are as follows:
- The first place is held by a partner from West Asia, account No. 1645XXX, who was credited with a reward of USD 34,454 in June;
- In second place is a partner from South Asia, account No. 1565XXX, who received a commission of USD 5,962;
- Completing the top three is another representative from South Asia, account No. 1576XXX, who earned USD 5,429 for the month.

CryptoNews of the Week

– To continue the rebound from June's lows, bitcoin needs to surpass the $65,000 mark. This level corresponds to the acquisition cost of coins bought by short-term investors, according to CoinDesk. Analysts at Blockware Intelligence observed that the value of digital gold fell below the cumulative cost of short-term holders for the first time since August 2023. "Last summer, under similar circumstances, the price remained in a sideways trend for another two months before surging again," the specialists added.
A similar cost metric for hodlers (long-term holders) is less than $20,000. For this market participant category, the current 15-18% drop from the all-time high (ATH) on March 14 is a routine event. "During the 2017 cycle, bitcoin experienced 10 pullbacks of 20% or more. This is a healthy correction of a bull market. Volatility provides opportunities for strategic capital placement for those with a long-term horizon," commented Blockware experts.

– According to Fundstrat analyst Tom Lee, the bitcoin sell-off in June was partly caused by nervousness over the payments to 20,000 creditors of the Mount Gox (Mt.Gox) crypto exchange, which blocked about $9 billion in cryptocurrencies when it declared bankruptcy 10 years ago. Research by K33 indicates that the anticipation of this event recently exerted significant pressure on digital asset prices. However, Lee believes that the influence of these repayments will gradually weaken and predicts a new major rally that will drive bitcoin's price to $150,000 by the end of the year.

– The level of bullish sentiment on networks like X, Reddit, Telegram, 4Chan, and BitcoinTalk has significantly decreased, with traders losing confidence in the markets. Analysts at Santiment view this as one of the factors indicating a local bottom. According to expert data, trader sentiment was most optimistic in April before the halving. However, over the past three months, the bullish narrative has weakened due to bitcoin's inability to reach a new ATH. Bearish calls have also been slowly decreasing, suggesting a decline in market participant interest. "We interpret this as crowd fear and apathy—a potential signal of the lower boundary," noted Santiment. At the same time, discussions about holding cryptocurrency have increased, which may be a positive signal.

– "Bears still control the situation, but bitcoin is heavily oversold," says analyst Willy Woo. According to him, the markets will correct the oversold condition, but this does not imply a rise in fundamental demand and does not guarantee a continued bull trend. Woo emphasized that breaking the RSI resistance line on bitcoin's daily chart will create a "technical but not fundamental recovery."

– DigitalX Analyst Pratik Kala predicted consolidation and low volatility in the cryptocurrency market in July. "Bitcoin is looking for the next major catalyst for upward movement. It is not yet on the horizon, but everything will change as the US elections approach," he said. Jag Kooner, Head of Derivatives at Bitfinex, noted in an interview with Decrypt that changes in regulatory policy and the release of macroeconomic statistics could play a decisive role in trend development. The expert suggested a scenario where economic data is worse than expected. This could weaken traditional markets and increase interest in bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies as alternative investments. "Historically, during economic downturns, investors often turn to digital gold as a means of capital preservation," noted Kooner.

– Quinn Thompson, CEO of the cryptocurrency hedge fund Lekker Capital, believes that the current "excessively bearish" sentiments will gradually change. Catalysts for the growth of the crypto market will include the US presidential elections, increased liquidity from the Federal Reserve, and the launch of spot exchange-traded funds (ETFs) on Ethereum. According to Thompson, by November, bitcoin's price will reach $100,000, and Ethereum's price will reach $7,000. He also mentioned the IPO planned by Circle, the company issuing USDC stablecoins. Another reason for bitcoin's growth could be the increase in mining profitability.
The founder of Lekker Capital believes that the pressure from the sale of coins received by Mt.Gox creditors (162,100 BTC) is already priced in by the market. The same applies to the movement of bitcoins confiscated by the German authorities (about 50,000 BTC). The founder of Galaxy Digital, Mike Novogratz, agrees with Thompson. Recently, he made a similar forecast, predicting that bitcoin's price will reach $100,000 by the end of 2024.

– Some analysts believe that bitcoin could see a strong rebound in the coming weeks. The founder of MN Trading, Michael van de Poppe, suggested that the bulls start to dominate at the $60,000 zone. According to his forecasts, a reversal will occur "next week with the upcoming listing of the Ethereum ETF."
Another expert, Ali Martinez, noted that in previous years when June ended with a downtrend, there was a sharp rise the following month: historically, bitcoin gained an average of 7.42%. Nevertheless, July could be more challenging than usual due to the sale of bitcoins by the German government and the upcoming Mt.Gox creditor payments. Jonathan De Wet, Chief Investment Officer at ZeroCap, expects the asset to fall to the "key support level" around $57,000 in the coming weeks as payouts to Mt.Gox's affected clients begin.

– Jesse Powell, co-founder and CEO of the crypto exchange Kraken, donated $1 million to Donald Trump's campaign "mostly in ETH." He noted that he supported "the only major party candidate advocating for cryptocurrency." "Despite enormous efforts by the bipartisan Congress to establish clear rules, the White House under [current US President Joe] Biden has stood aside and allowed a campaign of uncontrolled regulation through coercion. This approach reduces the US's competitiveness as other major economies around the world propose clear rules for regulating digital assets," Powell wrote. Previously, the head of Kraken called the SEC (Securities and Exchange Commission) "the main drag" and warned businesses to "flee the US."
The founders of the bitcoin exchange Gemini, brothers Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss, also donated $2 million in bitcoin to Trump. However, according to Bloomberg, part of the funds was returned due to exceeding the maximum amount.
Recall that in June, Trump declared himself the "crypto president" and criticized the Democrats' attempts to regulate the industry while promising to protect mining in the US and worldwide.

– As of the end of June, the number of crypto ATMs worldwide reached 38,278 units. This figure is approaching the December 2022 peak of 39,541 devices, according to Coin ATM Radar data. In 2023, the sector lost 2,861 units, shrinking by approximately 11.5%. However, since the beginning of 2024, 2,564 new bitcoin ATMs have been installed, increasing the total number by 17.8%.
The US remains the undisputed leader, accounting for 82% (31,968) of the total number of crypto ATMs. In second place is Canada with 7.7% (3,028). In April, Australia reached the third position with 2.8% (1,107).

Forex and Cryptocurrency Forecast for 08 – 12 July 2024

EUR/USD: The US is Not Very Good, Europe is Not Very Bad

On Friday, June 5, the Dollar Index (DXY) hit a three-week low, while the euro showed its largest weekly gain against the dollar in a year. This was due to the US not performing as well as expected and Europe not faring as poorly.

Disappointing private sector employment statistics from ADP (150K versus the forecasted 163K and previous 157K) and an increase in repeated jobless claims (238K versus 234K) for the ninth consecutive week indicate a cooling labour market. The slowdown in business activity in the service sector, the fastest in four years, and the drop in the ISM Index from 53.8 to 48.8 points, below the threshold of 50.00, suggest that the US economy is not as smooth as the Federal Reserve (Fed) would like.

The FOMC's June meeting minutes mentioned that monetary policy should be ready to respond to economic issues, a sentiment echoed by Fed Chairman Jerome Powell. Consequently, this gloomy macroeconomic data increased the likelihood of a monetary expansion cycle and interest rate cuts in September from 63% to 73%. Derivatives are almost certain that there will be two 25 basis point (bp) cuts in 2024, lowering the rate from 5.50% to 5.00%. This caused US Treasury yields and the DXY to drop, while stock indices and EUR/USD rose. The S&P500 set its 33rd record this year, and EUR/USD reached a high of 1.0842 on July 5.

The euro was also bolstered by the situation in France. The left-wing "New People's Front" (NFP) and the government bloc "Together for the Republic" (Ensemble) joined forces to prevent the right-wing from gaining power, which might end successfully. If the right-wing "National Rally" (RN) does not gain an absolute majority in the new parliament after the second round of elections, there will be no confrontation with the EU or Frexit (analogy with British Brexit).

Polls indicate the right-wing will secure 190 to 250 out of 577 seats, while 289 are needed for an absolute majority. The second round of elections will be held on Sunday, July 7, which might cause gaps in euro pairs on Monday.

Last week, the euro was also supported by the European Central Bank, or rather, by the minutes of its June Governing Council meeting. On one hand, 25 out of 26 Council members voted for a 25 basis point rate cut. However, this decision was made with several caveats concerning still high wage growth rates and the persistence of inflation, which resists and does not want to drop to the target level of 2.0%.

Preliminary June data showed that the CPI decreased only by 0.1% from 2.6% to 2.5%, and the Core CPI remained at 2.9% (y/y), above the consensus forecast of 2.8%. ECB officials fear the CPI might rise due to geopolitical tensions, supply chain disruptions, raw material and energy price increases, and other factors. This almost rules out a rate cut at the ECB Governing Council meeting on July 18 and suggests only one act of monetary expansion in the second half of 2024.

Key US labour market data released at the end of the week on Friday, July 5, could change the dollar's position and the EUR/USD dynamics. According to the Bureau of Labour Statistics (BLS), non-farm payrolls (NFP) increased by 206K in June, lower than May's 218K but above the forecast of 190K. Other data showed the unemployment rate rose from 4.0% to 4.1%, and wage inflation dropped from 4.1% to 3.9% (y/y).

After the publication of this data, EUR/USD ended the week at 1.0839. However, this does not mean it will start the next week at this level. Traders are closely watching the French elections and the political situation related to the November US presidential elections. Biden's interview with ABC News at 00:00 GMT on Saturday, July 6, when markets are closed, could also impact dollar pairs.

As of the evening of July 5, analysts' forecasts for the near future are as follows: 55% predict the pair will rise, 45% foresee a fall. In technical analysis, all trend indicators and oscillators on D1 are in favour of the euro, although a quarter indicate the pair is overbought. The nearest support is in the 10790-10805 zone, followed by 1.0725, 1.0665-1.0680, 1.0600-1.0620, 1.0565, 1.0495-1.0515, 1.0450, and 1.0370. Resistance zones are at 1.0890-1.0915, 1.0945, 1.0980-1.1010, 1.1050, and 1.1100-1.1140.

Notable events in the upcoming week include Jerome Powell's testimony in the US Congress on July 9 and 10, updated CPI data for Germany and the US on Thursday, July 11, and US initial jobless claims. The week will end with Germany's retail sales data and the US Producer Price Index (PPI) and the University of Michigan Consumer Sentiment Index.

GBP/USD: The Pound Gained with the Labour Party

The pound sterling and British stocks rose after the opposition centre-left Labour Party secured a convincing victory in the parliamentary elections. The British currency achieved a weekly gain of 1% – the best in the last seven weeks.

According to Reuters, the Labour Party won 337 out of 650 seats, indicating a majority in the House of Commons. UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak conceded defeat and congratulated his opponents on their victory. In turn, Labour Party leader and Prime Minister-elect Keir Starmer declared that from today "we are embarking on a mission of national renewal and starting to rebuild our country." Starmer will replace Sunak as Prime Minister, ending 14 years of Conservative rule.

The markets responded positively to the national election results. The pound became the only component of the DXY to strengthen (by 0.2%) this year. "Apart from the weakening of the dollar," commented Singapore's DBS Bank, "the markets warmly welcomed the victory of the opposition Labour Party. This will put an end to years of political and economic uncertainty under Conservative leadership following the Brexit referendum in 2016. Labour leader Keir Starmer, while he is alive, has ruled out the possibility of the UK joining three blocs – the EU, the single market, and the customs union. […] However, Labour may seek more favourable trade agreements by aligning with EU rules in specific sectors such as agriculture, food, and chemicals."

"As for monetary policy," continued DBS strategists, "the OIS market assesses a 62.4% probability of the Bank of England (BoE) cutting the rate by 25 basis points to 5.0% at the meeting on August 1." However, DBS believes this will not significantly harm the pound, provided that expectations for a Fed rate cut in September increase.

The final note of the five-day period saw the GBP/USD pair at 1.2814. Specialists from another Singaporean bank, UOB, believe the likelihood of the pound strengthening has increased. They note that a strong resistance level is in the area of last month's high of 1.2860. The median forecast for the near term is as follows: 35% of analysts expect further pound strengthening and pair growth, 50% foresee a decline, and the remaining 15% are neutral. As for technical analysis on D1, 100% of trend indicators are green. Among the oscillators, 90% are green, a third of which are in the overbought zone, and the remaining 10% are neutral grey. In case of further decline, the pair will find support levels and zones at 1.2735-1.2750, 1.2680, 1.2655, 1.2610-1.2625, 1.2540, 1.2445-1.2465, 1.2405, and 1.2300-1.2330. In case of growth, the pair will meet resistance at levels 1.2850-1.2860, followed by 1.2895, 1.2965-1.2995, 1.3040, and 1.3130-1.3140.

Among the events of the coming week, the publication of UK GDP data for May on Thursday, July 11, stands out. The next important event, as previously mentioned, will be the publication of a fresh inflation report in the United Kingdom on July 17.

USD/JPY: Back to 1986

The yen lost over 12% against the dollar this year due to the large interest rate differential between Japan and the US. It continued to lose ground in the first half of the past week, reaching a new 38-year high of 161.94 on Wednesday, July 3, but failed to break above 162.00 due to disappointing US statistics.

Until Friday, Japanese officials largely refrained from discussing possible interventions. According to several experts, they may fear the wrath of the United States following sharp remarks from American authorities regarding recent similar actions. However, on July 5, Finance Minister Shunichi Suzuki once again stated that the authorities would closely monitor the state of the stock and currency markets. A week earlier, he expressed that he was "deeply concerned about excessive and unilateral movements in the forex market" and hoped that "confidence in the Japanese currency remains."

OCBC Bank economists noted that "USD/JPY will follow US Treasury yields and the dollar. A reversal in USD and a Fed rate cut or a BoJ signal to normalize (rate hike or accelerated balance sheet reduction) is needed for a downward reversal, none of which seem to be happening." OCBC concluded that the path of least resistance for USD/JPY might still be upward unless there is intervention. "Intervention, at best, is a tool to slow the yen's depreciation, not to reverse the trend," they added.

The week ended with USD/JPY at 160.78. UOB Group analysts noted that the pair's upward momentum is starting to weaken, but only a break below 160.45 would indicate that the USD will not strengthen further. If the pair breaks above 162.00, the next level to watch is 163.00. OCBC economists see further targets for USD/JPY at 164.00 and 164.90, with support at 160.20, 158.10 (21 DMA), and 156.90 (50 DMA).

Many traders remain cautious, fearing another intervention by Japanese authorities. 65% of analysts expect another intervention and a southward movement of the pair, while the remaining 35% point north. Among trend indicators on D1, only 10% point south, with the rest looking north. Oscillator indicators are 25% red and 75% green.

No significant macroeconomic data is expected for Japan in the upcoming week.

CRYPTOCURRENCIES: Back to February 26

The last five days of June gave investors hope that the black streak was over. But alas! On the first day of July, the bulls' strength waned, and BTC/USD turned south again, easily breaking support around $60,000 and plummeting to a local bottom at $53,543, a level last seen on February 26.

A long time ago, in 1961, the 35th President of the United States, John Fitzgerald Kennedy, uttered a phrase that became famous: "Victory has a thousand fathers, but defeat is an orphan." So, the current victory of the bears over the bulls also has many "fathers," although not a thousand. Several factors influenced the decline of the crypto market.

Firstly, investor disappointment that bitcoin failed to reach a new all-time high (ATH) after the April halving. Due to the halving of their reward, BTC miners were forced to sell a significant amount of their coins to cover operational costs. It was reported that their reserves reached a 14-year low. Downward pressure was also exerted by the German government, which began selling a large amount of bitcoin (about 50,000 BTC) seized by the police from a pirate site in January.

Sales intensified sharply after the announcement on June 24 that creditor payments from the bankrupt crypto exchange Mount Gox (Mt.Gox) would start in early July. These assets had been blocked, and now 20,000 former clients are to receive a total of 162,100 BTC (about $9 billion). According to a K33 study, the anticipation of this event put significant pressure on digital asset prices. Traders assumed that most recipients would be inclined to sell their tokens, given that BTC's price had risen exponentially since 1994. Real panic ensued when test transactions were observed on wallets associated with Mt.Gox.

According to Quinn Thompson, CEO of the crypto hedge fund Lekker Capital, the market has largely accounted for the German government's actions and Mt.Gox creditor payments. Thus, this negative pressure is expected to gradually weaken, as noted by Fundstrat analyst Tom Lee.

Another disappointment was the anticipated launch of Ethereum exchange spot ETFs last week, which did not materialise. The US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) rejected the applicants' S-1 form submissions, requesting additional adjustments by July 8. Therefore, approval may occur closer to mid-month or later, if at all. As a result, investors withdrew a record $119 million over the past two weeks, the highest since August 2022, making Ethereum an outsider in the crypto market.

Overall, global cryptocurrency exchange-traded funds recorded a third consecutive week of outflows, losing a total of $1.2 billion in investments. Most of the losses came from US spot Bitcoin ETFs, with about half of the inflows coming from retail investors, who typically lack long-term planning and patience. Many whales also began to take profits due to the absence of positive signals. The stock market also played against digital assets. In the last two months, both the S&P500 and Nasdaq Composite consistently hit record highs, prompting some investors to shift their funds from cryptocurrencies to stocks.

Despite the current gloomy outlook, many experts remain cautiously optimistic about the future. MN Trading founder Michaλl van de Poppe believes an upward reversal will occur with the upcoming listing of Ethereum ETFs. Another expert, Ali Martinez, noted that in previous years, when June ended in a downtrend, there was a sharp rise the following month: historically, bitcoin gained an average of 7.42%. However, he believes July may be more challenging than usual due to the shock from Germany's bitcoin sales and Mt.Gox creditor payments.

Santiment analysts observed that both bullish and bearish sentiments in X, Reddit, Telegram, 4Chan, and BitcoinTalk networks are waning, indicating traders' loss of interest in trading. "We interpret this as fear and apathy among the crowd – a potential bottom signal," Santiment noted. "At the same time, there is increased talk about holding cryptocurrencies, which could be a positive sign."

"Bears still control the situation, but bitcoin is heavily oversold," said analyst Willy Woo. He believes markets will correct the oversold condition, but at this stage, it does not indicate fundamental demand growth or guarantee a sustained bullish trend. Woo emphasized that a breakout of the resistance line on the daily bitcoin RSI chart will create a "technical but not fundamental recovery."

According to Blockware Intelligence experts, bitcoin needs to overcome the $65,000 level to develop a rebound. This level corresponds to the acquisition cost for short-term investors. Currently, the digital gold prices have dropped below the total cost of short-term holders for the first time since August 2023. "Last summer, under similar circumstances, the price remained in a sideways trend for another two months before breaking out again," added Blockware Intelligence specialists.

Pratik Kala, a DigitalX analyst, predicts consolidation and low volatility for the crypto market in July. He stated, "Bitcoin is looking for the next major catalyst to move up. It's not visible on the horizon yet, but things will change as the US elections approach." Quinn Thompson from Lekker Capital also believes that the current "overly bearish" sentiments will gradually shift. He sees the US presidential elections as a growth catalyst for the crypto market, along with increased liquidity from the Fed and the launch of spot ETH ETFs. Another reason for growth could be the increased profitability of mining. Thompson predicts bitcoin will reach $100,000 and Ethereum $7,000 by November.

Galaxy Digital founder Mike Novogratz shares Thompson's view, recently forecasting bitcoin will hit $100,000 by the end of 2024. Tom Lee of Fundstrat expects an even higher figure of $150,000.

As of writing this outlook on the evening of Friday, July 5, BTC/USD is trading at $56,400 and ETH/USD at $2,975. The total crypto market capitalization is $2.06 trillion ($2.24 trillion a week ago). The market lost about $625 billion over the last 30 days. The Crypto Fear and Greed Index dropped from 47 to 29 points in 7 days, moving from the Neutral zone to the Fear zone.

CryptoNews of the Week

– Many members of the crypto community believe that bitcoin has already reached its local bottom. For example, this forecast is supported by an analyst known as MartyParty. In his opinion, this is indicated by the fact that the main cryptocurrency has fallen to levels that barely cover the costs of its mining.
MartyParty believes that the behaviour of bitcoin can be predicted using the Wyckoff method. However, the analyst is confident that it is important to consider the impact of the upcoming US presidential elections. MartyParty overlaid the Wyckoff distribution on the BTC price curve to show the expected trajectory of the cryptocurrency, considering the potential reaction to the election outcome. According to his calculations, the peak of bitcoin's growth may be recorded in June 2025.
Ryan Lee, the Chief Analyst at Bitget Research, also shared a positive forecast in a conversation with BeInCrypto. He noted that on the weekly chart, BTC is near the lower boundary of the Bollinger Bands. Such behaviour of the cryptocurrency, in his observations, indicates that the coin has reached its local bottom.

– However, many in the crypto community predict further declines for bitcoin. For instance, a trader known as AltstreetBet does not rule out the coin falling to $47,000, with the bearish trend continuing until the end of the year. A similar forecast was given by analyst Inmortal. He noted the similarity between BTC's behaviour and its trajectory in 2019. If history repeats itself, bitcoin will be able to grow only at the beginning of 2025.

– The correction of the first cryptocurrency may continue until it reaches $44,000. This opinion was expressed by legendary Wall Street trader and head of Factor LLC, Peter Brandt. The expert questioned whether bitcoin has completed the "double top" pattern on the daily chart. According to his calculations, the upper level of this model is around $72,000, and the lower level is at $43,970.
It is worth recalling that a "Double Top" is a chart pattern that signals a medium- or long-term trend reversal from bullish to bearish. It forms when the price of an asset reaches a peak twice with subsequent pullbacks.

– Popular analyst known as Dave the Wave gave a forecast similar to Peter Brandt's. He warned his 146,700 followers on social media platform X that bitcoin might be reflecting the price movement seen at the beginning of 2017. In this case, according to the logarithmic growth curve (LGC) model, the dip could lead to $44,000, followed by a parabolic surge. (The LGC model aims to predict the lows and highs of BTC's long-term cycle by filtering out short-term volatility).
According to the analyst, downward volatility is an integral part of a bull market. "Bitcoiners have to take the good with the bad... technically we are still in a bull market… And although one can be confident in ultimate victory, there may be a fall along the way."
Dave the Wave emphasizes that a deep corrective movement will benefit bitcoin in the long term. According to his forecast, the dip will allow BTC to rise by 400%, reaching $220,000 by the end of 2025.

– Benjamin Cowen, founder and head of ITC Crypto, also commented on the BTC price drop. In his opinion, digital gold is near a critical level. The movement of the two-week trend strength indicator (RSI) will soon show whether the price will go up (as in 2013 and 2016) or down (as in 2019). "I keep playing these games, trying to figure out what year it is now, but then I tell myself it's 2024, and [bitcoin] must be doing something different than before," the expert emphasized.

– Peter Schiff, a fierce opponent of cryptocurrencies and president of Euro Pacific Capital, pointed to the lack of institutional demand for bitcoin. "Pumpers blame the price drop on sales related to [payments to creditors of the bankrupt crypto exchange] Mt. Gox. This is partly true, but the liquidation also exposes the myth of institutional demand. If it existed, buyers would have jumped at the chance to buy Mt. Gox bitcoins," said the entrepreneur.

– According to a document published on Monday, June 8, the Republican Party of former US President Donald Trump has officially adopted a platform aimed at supporting innovation in the crypto sphere, reflecting Trump's and his fellow party members' interest in digital assets. "Republicans will end the Democrats' illegal and un-American repression in the crypto field and oppose the creation of a Central Bank digital currency," the document states. "We will protect the right to mine and the right of every American to self-custody their bitcoins [and] conduct transactions without government oversight and control."

– Katie Stockton, Managing Partner at Fairlead Strategies, confirmed in an interview on CNBC that the current drop in bitcoin prices is due to the beginning of payments to clients of the Mt. Gox exchange, which went bankrupt ten years after the hack. In her opinion, the long-term upward trend remains, and the BTC price drop is short-term: "In the second half of the year, more volatility is likely to be observed. The upward trend will remain, but more correction phases will occur."
Katie Stockton emphasized that bitcoin should be considered a long-term investment with significant growth potential akin to a call option. However, if the first cryptocurrency's price drops to $40,000, this could threaten the long-term bullish trend.

– Michael Saylor, co-founder and former CEO of MicroStrategy, stated that the decline in the first cryptocurrency's value would not affect the asset's attractiveness among investors. As evidence, he showed a table comparing the price dynamics of various asset classes over several years. Among them were bitcoin, gold, emerging market stocks, emerging market bonds, and treasury bonds. The best results were shown by bitcoin, young company stocks (U.S. Growth index), and the Nasdaq 100 index. From 2011 to 2024, the price of bitcoin increased by 18,881%, while during the same period, the Nasdaq 100 index rose by 931%, and gold by 59%. Earlier, Michael Saylor predicted bitcoin's growth to $10 million, declaring that the first cryptocurrency would offer economic immortality for corporations.

– According to Forbes, citizens of Argentina, a country with the highest level of cryptocurrency adoption in the Western Hemisphere and inflation of about 300%, prefer buying and holding digital assets. Forbes cites the latest study by analytical company SimilarWeb, according to which out of 130 million visitors to the 55 largest global crypto exchanges, approximately 2.5 million were from Argentina.
According to Maximiliano Hinz, head of the Latin American division of the crypto exchange Bitget, "Argentinians do not play lotteries with meme coins and do not try to get rich on the next hot token. Instead, they buy and hold Tether (USDT) stablecoins. This is an abnormal market where many people just buy USDT and do nothing else with it." Newly elected Argentine President Javier Milei stated that the country is moving towards a "regime of competing currencies" where every citizen will choose which assets to use for payments. However, according to Forbes, none of the five largest crypto exchanges represented in Argentina - Binance, eToro, BingX, HTX, and Bitget - have been registered with the National Securities Commission (CNV).
