Technical Analysis of BTC/USD for 12/05/2020:

Crypto Industry News:

The South Korean government plans to create a blockchain-based platform for storing and verifying the identity of digital independent vehicles in the city of Sejong, which is a testing ground for the introduction of new technologies.

Asian media has announced that South Korea's Ministry of Science and ICT, along with the national internet technology supervisory body, Korea Internet & Security Agency, will guide the development of an identity management and verification platform. Although autonomous vehicles are still far from the mainstream, Sejong has already started preparing to fight the crimes associated with these advances.

The LG Group technology wing, LG CNS and the Korean independent vehicle manufacturer will work with the authorities of the city of Sejong to develop a blockchain-based encrypted identifier, called a decentralized identifier or DID. This can help prevent illegal identity copying or hacking into independent vehicles. The report explains that the identity verification system will implement multiple layers of data encryption shared between cars and road objects using vehicle-to-everything or V2X communication.

Although previously the government was uncertain about crypto, it did show consistent efforts to legitimize cryptocurrencies and develop favorable regulations. It is worth recalling that the Bank of Korea has launched a pilot program for assessing the logistics of the digital currency of the central bank or CBDC

Technical Market Outlook:

The BTC/USD pair has dipped 15% just before the halving and now, after the halving is done, there is no sign of the shopping frenzy behavior. Still the key level of support is still seen at $7,943, but the nearest technical support is currently seen at the level of $8,464. Any violation of this level will deepen the correction towards the level of $7,934 which is a key short-term technical support for bulls. Weak and negative momentum supports the short-term bearish outlook about 13 hours before halving.

Weekly Pivot Points:

Trading Recommendations:

The recent rally in Bitcoin was made in anticipation of Bitcoin halving and it is a classic pump and dump scheme. The larger time frame trend remains down and as long as the level of $10,791 is not violated, all rallies will be treated as a counter-trend corrective moves. This is why the short positions are now more preferred until the level of $10,791 is clearly violated.
