Technical analysis of ETH/USD for 04/07/2019:

Crypto Industry News:

Ministers from the Netherlands in a statement called on the government to regulate cryptocurrencies and some cash payments due to money laundering.

Officials said that the government should prohibit cash payments above EUR 3,000, regulate cryptocurrencies and ban 500 euro banknotes, as these instruments may allegedly facilitate money laundering. The Netherlands does not recognize cryptocurrency as a legitimate currency, although last year the Dutch court considered Bitcoin to be a legitimate "transferable value" in a monetary penalty case.

According to the statement, Finance Minister Wopke Hoekstra and the Minister of Justice and Security Ferdinand Grapperhaus sent to parliament on July 1 a proposal of "money laundering". The project is asking for increased enforcement capacity by financial supervisory authorities and relevant supervisory authorities and groups, such as the financial intelligence unit, the police, the tax and investigative information services, and the prosecutor's office.

If the bill is approved, banks will also be encouraged to share information about suspicious customers. The Netherlands will also support the creation of a European Union regulatory body dealing with combating cross-border money laundering.

Technical Overview:

The ETH/USD pair broke through the local short-term trendline resistance around the level of $293 and made a new local high at the level of $302.50. This means the bounce momentum is getting stronger and soon the price might test the nearest technical resistance located at the level of $304.22. If this level is clearly violated, then the next target for bulls is the technical resistance at $324.09.
