Ethereum Price Forecast and Analysis – September 19, 2017
September 19, 2017
As the dust settles from China’s crackdown on cryptocurrencies, Ethereum looks poised for a rally that could send it across the $300.00 level. However, the situation remains tenuous. The Chinese ban confirmed the worst fears of some investors—that central banks and other vested interests will regulate against cryptocurrencies to keep their hold on power. It’s not an unreasonable fear, but I should add that regulators only banned yuan to crypto exchanges, not the existence of blockchain itself. That may sound like a difference without a distinction, but it could be. The post Ethereum Price Forecast and Analysis – September 19, 2017 appeared first on Profit Confidential.
Bitcoin Price Forecast and Analysis – September 19, 2017
September 19, 2017
Bitcoin (BTC) is once again nearing the all-important $4,000 threshold, a significant bounce-back compared to last week's low point of $3,200 that came as a result of China's crackdown on initial coin offerings (ICO).

XE Market Analysis: North America - Sep 19, 2017
September 19, 2017
The dollar has traded mixed into the New York interbank open and into the start of the two-day FOMC, posting fresh highs versus the yen and Swiss franc, firming against the pound, while seeing new lows against the euro and Australian dollar. This partly reflects that markets have low expectations from the Fed with regard to tightening guidance, anticipating the central bank to announce the start of a gradual process to unwind its balance sheet, but not much beyond that. USD-JPY clocked a new two-month high at 111.88 before settling lower.
