Over the years, the number of forex brokers has continued to increase. If you are a new trader, deciding which forex broker to use can be tough. You won’t have a successful and profitable trading experience if you are not careful when choosing your forex broker.

This article will show you some of the most important factors you need to consider before you choose a forex broker. For more information on how to make smart decisions irrespective of whether you are trading forex, CFDs, or stocks, we encourage you to visit https://www.asktraders.com/.

Top 10 Factors to Consider Before Choosing A Forex Broker

1.Regulation

Before choosing a forex broker, you need to make sure that the broker has proper regulation. Proper regulation indicates that:

  • The broker is adequately capitalized. This means that the broker will be in a position to handle trading losses.
  • The broker will keep all your funds in accounts that are both segregated and secure.
  • The broker has fair trading practices. The trader will make sure that all your trades get executed at the current prevailing market prices.

Choosing a broker before considering whether the broker has a clean regulatory record will deny you the above protections and much more. It is worth noting that regulatory standards do vary depending on the regulatory regime. If a forex broker is doing business in numerous countries, the broker will be licensed and registered by different regulators. Genuine forex brokers will have a list of their regulators on their websites. You can always confirm whether the claims made by the broker are true by checking the regulators’ websites.

2.Trade Execution

Your trades won’t get filled in a timely manner and at the best rates if you fail to make sure that the forex broker you choose has great trade execution practices. Basically, you can choose from two types of brokers. The 2 types of brokers are:

  • Market Makers – These brokers deal with desks.
  • STP brokers – These are the forex brokers who will pass the orders you make into the interbank market.

Below we have expounded on the above forex brokers:

Dealing Desk Brokers/Market Makers

If you happen to enter into a trade with a market maker, the broker will be your direct counterparty. The broker will take the other side of all your trades. What this means is that every time you make gains on any of your trades, the gains will be a loss to the broker. If the broker makes any gains, these will be a loss to you.

This does not mean that the dealing desk brokers will be working against you. Their business model involves making bids when clients enter or exit trades. They usually offset your trades market risk with trades from their other clients and their liquidity provider. Dealing desk brokers usually offer fixed spreads. They determine the rates made available to the clients.

STP (Straight Through Processing) Brokers

These brokers will route any order you make to the interbank market. The interbank market is usually comprised of mutual funds, banks, hedge funds, etc. The STP brokers lack direct control over the quotes the clients see. They usually provide floating spreads. The spreads usually widen in case of market illiquidity and volatility.

Some STP brokers will let your orders interact with other orders. This happens within an ECN (Electronic trading Network). This gives you the chance to see the best price offered at that moment. This information can help you assess the market depth.

3.Data Security

When opening an account with any forex broker, you will have to transmit a lot of your financial and personal data. Some of the data the forex broker will require includes:

  • Utility bills
  • Bank account information
  • Your passport copies
  • Credit card numbers

If the trader does not take internet security seriously, your financial and personal data may end up being stolen. This can put you at the risk of your trading activities being disrupted and your identity being stolen. Before deciding to use a forex broker for trading, you will need to make sure that the trader uses the services of a reputable internet security company.

Also, make sure that the company has installed the SSL (Secure Security Layer) encryption. The SSL encryption makes sure that your data is encrypted during transmission over the internet. This denies the wrong parties a chance to intercept this data. Be sure to check the company’s Privacy Policy Statement to ensure that the broker confirms that the data they collect is kept private.

4.The Trading Costs

Trading costs can have a big impact on trade profitability. If you are a high-volume trader, you should never ignore the trading costs factor. Quality in the forex trading business does not have to be expensive. Before choosing a forex broker, take your time to find a broker who is committed to offering the clients high-quality services at a fee they won’t have to struggle to afford. It is important to avoid compromising on the quality because you want to save yourself some money. In some cases, cheap may end up being expensive.

5.Product Coverage

Nowadays, it is possible to use a single forex broker to trade more than just currencies. Some brokers will give you access to other important areas of the capital markets. All this can be done via a single forex account. A forex broker offering broad product coverage is much better. A good broker should offer you a chance to venture into:

  • Stock indices
  • Precious metals
  • Commodities
  • Cryptocurrencies, and much more

The more product coverage a broker offers, the more chances you have of making more profits.

6.Customer Service

Good customer service is useful for all traders. However, if you are a novice trader, you will find a helpful customer support team even more useful. The team will help you solve any issues you may have when opening your account. They will also help you learn forex trading and also figure out how to use the trading software.

Choose a forex broker who allows you to have access to the customer support any time you need it. A great broker will allow you to access support in different ways. These include:

  • Via the email
  • Via calling
  • Using the live chat
  • Using a contact form

Some great forex brokers will assign personal account managers to you to make things much easier for you. While this service may be subject to meeting certain minimum deposit thresholds, having a personal account manager is always a good thing.

Conclusion

Before choosing a forex broker, it is important to do a background check on the broker to ensure that you won’t regret your decision in the future. This article offers you some of the factors that you need to check in a broker. Choosing a great broker will allow you to enjoy the trading experience and also make more profit.

Trading recommendations:

According to the H1 time – frame, BTC has been trading sideways at the price of $3.900. Anyway, I found that BTC is still in the short – term downward trend. The price is trading below the Ichimoku and below the supply trendline in the background, which is another sign of the short-term downward trend. Watch for selling opportunities. The downward targets are set at the price of $3.700 and at the price of $3.453.

Support/Resistance

$4.000 – Intraday resistance

$3.820– Intraday support

$3.700 – Objective target 1

$3.453 – Objective target 2

          As It Ramps Up Enforcement, the SEC Has Been Looking Abroad for Assistance      Cache   Translate Page      
US SEC International Cooperation

2018 has been a hallmark year for the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC)’s enforcement against cryptocurrency companies, and, according to one director, international collaboration with other regulatory agencies has played a supporting role in the SEC’s recent regulatory actions.

Steven Peikin, co-director of the Division of Enforcement at the SEC, has credited international collaboration as a useful weapon in the agency's arsenal for bringing fraudulent or unregistered actors to justice. Peikin made this opinion known at a speech he delivered at the Harvard Law School’s Program on International Financial Systems (PIFS) for Regulators of Securities Markets on December 3, 2018.

Peikin leads a team of attorneys and accountants who investigate and prosecute civil violations of U.S. federal securities laws. According to him, his division has the "daunting task of ferreting out misconduct and, where appropriate, recommending civil enforcement actions that variously seek injunctions or cease-and-desist orders, penalties, disgorgement of ill-gotten gains, suspensions and bars of bad actors, and the temporary suspension or delisting of securities."

They have been involved in cases like the recent settlement of charges against music producer DJ Khaled and Floyd Mayweather Jr., who were both charged for touting crypto offerings. The team also charged and reached a settlement with EtherDelta co-founder Zachary Coburn for flouting federal securities laws by operating an unregistered national securities exchange.

On the topic of his division’s track record of enforcement, Peikin praised the SEC's "collaboration with international regulators and law enforcement" as being a critical element that made it possible.

"Our investigations often involve witnesses and evidence in different countries, transactions that cross international boundaries, and the resulting application of multiple different legal systems."

The SEC director also highlighted the separate types of securities law violations in the Initial Coin Offering (ICO) space and how collaboration with their counterparts overseas has helped the agency protect the market from dubious actors.

The first group includes ICOs that meet the criteria of a security and are in violation of federal securities law for registration failures. The second category are fraudulent ICOs where the issuers use the "excitement around the crypto asset space to simply rip off money from investors."

Late last year, the agency obtained an emergency asset freeze against Dominic Lacroix, his partner Sabrina Paradis-Royer and the company PlexCorps for marketing and selling PlexCoin to unsuspecting investors in August 2017. The token sale is a case-and-point example of the type of blatantly fraudulent activity the SEC has sought to punish in 2018.

The founders had promised an absurd 1,354 percent profit in less than 29 days, having raised $15 million from global investors. “We learned of this ICO from our counterparts at the AMF [Authorité des marchés financiers] in Quebec, who provided us with important evidence in support of our complaint and motion for emergency relief,” Peikin said in his speech.

"Staff at the AMF provided declarations in our proceeding, which the court relied on in ruling against the defendants," he continued.

Peikin said the agency would continue to work with its global partners as it develops its ongoing ICO investigations. His argument shares the sentiment of the recently held G20 Summit in Buenos Aires. At the summit, world leaders came together to discuss, among other topics, the need to regulate “crypto-assets for anti-money laundering and countering the financing of terrorism in line with FATF [Financial Action Task Force] standards.”

          Bitfinex Gives Tether Competition, Adds Four of Market’s Top Stablecoins      Cache   Translate Page      
Bitfinex Stablecoins

Cryptocurrency exchanges Bitfinex and Ethfinex now support trading for all six of the market’s major stablecoins. Adding to its support for MakerDao’s Dai and Tether’s USDT, the sister platforms recently listed USD Coin (USDC), TrueUSD (TUSD), Paxos Standard Token (PAX) and Gemini USD (GUSD). All stablecoins available on the exchanges will be traded against the U.S. dollar.

Launched in 2018, Ethfinex is Bitfinex’s ERC-20 exchange arm. Built for trading Ethereum tokens, the exchange is centralized at the moment, but the team plans to transform it into a decentralized exchange in the future.

Bitfinex made the announcement in a December 4, 2018, blog post stating:

“From today, customers of Bitfinex and Ethfinex will be able to trade all six major stablecoins on both exchanges. At Bitfinex and Ethfinex, we’re dedicated to providing a high quality, unbiased meeting place for every ecosystem and customer,” the post reads.

Bitfinex’s promise to remain “unbiased” is notable given the exchange’s intrinsic ties to Tether. Both Bitfinex and Tether share a CEO, and the interoperations between both entities, which critics have regarded as opaque, have called Tether’s credibility into question, paving the way for the competing projects that Bitfinex has just listed.

One of the biggest issues stemming from the cryptocurrency space is volatility. Many digital assets are known for experiencing wild price swings that can cause traders to incur unexpected and swift losses.

Stablecoins are considered to be a viable solution to this volatility. These currencies are typically tied to varying forms of fiat, such as USD, the euro or the yen, lessening the chances of price swings and giving investors more security with their trades. Others, like Dai, are collateralized using cryptocurrencies, namely ether.

Bitfinex and Ethfinex were the first digital currency exchanges to introduce their customers to the Dai, an Ethereum-based stablecoin. The addition of the four new coins follows Bitfinex rolling out USD and euro fiat pairs for Tether in November of this year.  

Tether, the oldest and most popular of the stablecoins the two exchanges offer, was launched in 2014. Allegedly tied to USD, it was the only stablecoin available to crypto traders until this year, when the market saw the addition of several new stablecoins that brought Tether’s competition to higher ground.

At press time, both deposits and withdrawals for these six coins are reserved only for verified traders across both platforms, though trading itself remains unaffected by a customer’s verification status.

Stablecoins have seen increased exchange and platform adoption in the tail end of 2018. Cryptocurrency exchange Binance, for example, recently added Paxos as a base currency to its trading platform, and the exchange also announced support for USDC in mid-November. Bitcoin payment platform BitPay recently added PAX to its system, allowing employers and employees alike to both send and receive payments in the stablecoin.

          What Bitcoin Did #53 Grin's Michael Cordner aka Yeastplume on Implementing Mimblewimble      Cache   Translate Page      

'œThere may be a few people who genuinely think a deflationary currency is the way to go, nobody on the Grin team does.'

'" Michael Corder (Yeastplume)

Interview location: Skype

Interview date: Friday 30th Nov, 2018

Project: Grin

Role: Developer

Outside of the most hardcore Bitcoin maximalists, there are some who respect a minimal number of alternative cryptocurrency projects. My experience in creating this podcast is that you find some who say they are maximalists, but Monero is cool, or that Decred is interesting.

The ability to command respect is usually steeped in a currencies foundation sharing characteristics of Bitcoin:

  • An anonymous founder

  • A focus on decentralisation

  • A monetary policy which does not enrich the founders and developers

  • No premine

One such project which has sparked interest is Grin's implementation of Mimblewimble, a new coin which attempts to solve some of the privacy and scaling issues of Bitcoin.

On August 2nd, 2016, Tom Elvis Jedusor, a contributor to the Bitcoin Wizards IRC channel dropped his whitepaper, describing a blockchain with a radically different approach to transaction construction from Bitcoin. In October 2016, Andrew Poelstra from Blockstream completed his analysis of the whitepaper and dropped a position paper filling in some of the gaps from the original paper to make precise the idea.

In the middle of November, Ignotus Peverell, another anonymous developer, appeared on the same IRC channel with a link to GitHub with an implementation of Mimblewimble, and this is how Grin was born.

Fast forward to today and Grin has launched its fourth testnet and is preparing to launch its mainnet in January of next year.

In this interview I talk with Michael Cordner, aka Yeastplume, a developer working on the Grin implementation of Mumblewimble, we discuss why Grin is acceptable for some Bitcoiners, their approach to monetary policy and governance, and how to mine Grin.

          How Yemen's civil war went cyber      Cache   Translate Page

The conflict tearing Yemen apart is a human catastrophe and a geopolitical mess. It's also providing a look at how today's shooting wars spill over into digital conflict, even in the poorer corners of the world, as two presentations at Wednesday's CyberwarCon in Washington, D.C., elucidated.

The backdrop: Houthi rebels, backed by Iran, currently control the capital city of Sanaa — and with it the main internet service in the country, YemenNet. President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi's government, backed by the Saudis, control much of the rest of the country, save for a few territories controlled by al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula. The Hadi government launched its own internet service in its territory, AdenNet.

Show less

By gaining control of YemenNet, the Houthis gained control of the “.ye” domain — the Yemeni equivalent of “.com.” At the conference, threat intelligence firm Recorded Future noted that the Houthis used that control to take over national websites and declare themselves the official government.

It had already been reported that the Houthis disrupted access to social media networks and to any website showing troop positions. They also cut as much as 80% of the incoming submarine cables providing internet to disrupt international communications.New from Recorded Future's findings: It appears that the Houthis have installed cryptocurrency mining operations on the internet infrastructure in order to fund the regime.

The Hadi government built its AdenNet using Huawei routers. The Chinese telecommunications firm’s presence reflects China’s practice of using infrastructure assistance to secure valuable alliances (the Belt and Road initiative). Yemen is currently a war zone, but some day it will return to being a nation that controls important shipping lanes.

Accepting China's infrastructure aid comes at a cost. Huawei is believed by most Western countries to sabotage its own equipment to facilitate Chinese spying.

The influence campaign: The Houthi government is also running social media influence campaigns to pressure the West and Saudi Arabia to stop bombing Yemen, Johns Hopkins student Dan O’Keefe reported at CyberwarCon.

The campaigns use a "Twitter board" — essentially a massive collection of prewritten tweets focusing on a topic of the day.Citizens, including those directed to the boards from government websites, select tweets and post them rapid-fire to try to make issues trend.The campaigns suggest a maximum posting rate so the accounts don't get flagged as bots.

Though many big players are involved in bringing weapons to the region — with Saudi Arabia and Iran, both liberal users of surveillance technology, among them — it doesn't appear that there is a proxy war of surveillance tech underway in Yemen, yet.

Recorded Future notes that the level of devastation in the conflict reduces surveillance's payoff: The humanitarian crisis limits the amount of tech being used in Yemen and makes guns a more "useful" export.

          Why will You Choose an Online portal for Shopping Baby Products?      Cache   Translate Page      

As per Rob Daley (co-founder of 4Moms), one of the major reasons to expand his baby food selling business is the innovation. Juvenile products suppliers choose the online market because of the engagement of million customers to purchase top baby care accessories at discounts. There is a good space for reliable businesspeople, e-commerce websites and retailers to promote their different products easily. Easy shopping option inspires elite consumers and parents to hit mobile shopping carts to find the best products for their kids.

Easy Shopping Option for Parents
Online shops for babies attract parents. The vast online shopping gallery showcases new brands which must convince senior parents.  A single click shopping option is flexible to a busy mother who likes to save time. Her mobile is the best e-commerce portal to place different orders on a single go. She pays online vendors using her e-wallet, credit/debit cards and cryptocurrencies (digital coins). Whenever she wants, she can purchase kids’ toys, baby food, costumes, and even perambulators.

Vast Shopping Network with Innovation       
In local stores, there are selected brands for customers. Comparatively, parents navigate on the sites like farmorsoutlet.dk to check multiple brands before shopping. They get free quotes from top sites to opt for unique baby care products. Veteran Henry Thorne, the co-partner of Daley reiterates that 4Mom has included more dynamic products to the inventory to cope with rivals...

Good Baby Safety
Online products for infants are competitive. Sellers on internet prioritize the health security to protect babies from destruction. Therefore, instead of cutting prices to win customers, online companies intend to evaluate the product quality.  Depending on health condition, age, behavioral pattern and the likelihood of babies, companies bring awesome products to their inventory for sale. For instance, an upgraded digital thermometer with a top-notch portable bathtub helps mom to flush out dirty water. Baby is not left behind in the pool of dirty soap water after bathing. Same way, Origami trolley or stroller for baby is equipped with retractable iPhone battery charger and sensors. At his online e-commerce portal, senior customers locate ultra-modern, ergonomic and durable products to entertain babies. It keeps in touch with the current trend.

More Updates with Easy Mobile Apps Toolkits to Download for Shopping
Andy Hoar, a top analyst, working with Forrester Research, gives some authentic tips and advice to people. He thinks that the behavior of parents is fast changing. Those who have much money to buy expensive baby care products use world-class mobile shopping apps to cross-check updates/price tags/information. They are able to read new blogs to understand the difference.  For example, usually, they are accustomed to buying products for babies from Amazon. However, recently, through smart shopping apps tools, they get new barcodes to enter into various shopping portals to go through product descriptions. They try to get new features which are not available in Amazon e-commerce portal.  They decide based on current data collected from other dependable sources. Besides, they track the SERP rates, web traffic and feedbacks of customers. Ultimately, these online research materials and hi-tech shopping apps toolkits guide them to handpick qualitative products for their junior members.

Babies are growing in a new ambiance which is influenced by smart digital technology. They have to be given freedom to increase their closeness with sophisticated devices. So, in future, the juvenile community will not backtrack but move to accept new technology. Parents will be interested in visiting mobile online shopping sites to handpick specific baby care items which must innovate lifestyles of babies.

          Central Bank Digital Currency Threatens Financial Privacy and Economic Growth      Cache   Translate Page      

Various proposals for “central bank digital currency” (CBDC) have been under discussion for several years now. The central bank of Ecuador launched a digital currency in 2015 — and shut down the failed project three years later. A number of economists have addressed the topic.

What is a CBDC? It is a payment medium that would be denominated in the established fiat money unit, not in any new unit. There are two main models: (1) a digital token that, like traditional coins and currency notes, and like Bitcoin, passes peer-to-peer without going through the interbank clearing system, presumably validated by a distributed-ledger blockchain system; and (2) account balances that individuals and businesses can directly hold on the books of the central bank, retail versions of the balances that commercial banks presently hold there for interbank payments. The latter model is not really properly called a currency, being a deposit-transfer system, but it is put under the “digital currency” umbrella because it resembles fiat currency notes in being a liability of the central bank, and as such a “final” means of payment, and because transactions would settle nearly instantly on a single balance sheet.[1]

The debate over CBDCs was recently revived by the IMF’s Managing Director Christine Lagarde in a speech suggesting, rather tentatively, that central banks should consider issuing some kind of digital currency so as to keep up with the times. (Why on earth the IMF continues to exist, long after the demise of the Bretton Woods system that it was created to support, is a question for another time.)

Lagarde begins her speech with a potted history of money. Although she does not attribute the origin of money to the state, she suggests that the state helps to improve money. Once bank-issued money arose, “spearheaded by the Italian bankers and merchants of the Renaissance,” trust in the issuer became important. Thus: “Trust became essential—and the state became the guarantor of that trust, by offering liquidity backstops, and supervision.” The timeline matters here. In fact, Italian bankers began providing money payments via transferable account balances some time before 1200 AD, whereas European states provided nothing in the way of “liquidity backstops, and supervision” until many centuries later. So state guarantees were not essential to the spread of bank-issued money historically. Nor was the popularity or safety of private banknotes, as issued by 17th century London goldsmiths, or by 18th and 19th-century Scottish or Canadian bankers, historically dependent on state guarantees.

Lagarde rightly notes that “the fintech revolution … questions the role of the state in providing money.” She points to the recent proliferation of digital private payment providers “from AliPay and WeChat in China, to PayTM in India, to M-Pesa in Kenya” and namechecks “cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Ripple.” She expresses her own position on the desirable monetary role of the state in surprisingly tentative language: “Some suggest the state should back down. Still, I am not entirely convinced. … I believe we should consider the possibility to issue digital currency. There may be a role for the state to supply money to the digital economy.”

On the plus side of the CBDC ledger, Lagarde proposes that a central bank digital currency “could satisfy public policy goals, such as (i) financial inclusion, and (ii) security and consumer protection; and to provide what the private sector cannot: (iii) privacy in payments.” Wait, what? It is of course laughable that a government would itself provide greater privacy in payments than it allows private institutions to provide. Could this have been a joke intended to lighten the mood of the speech? The private sector can in fact provide as much financial privacy as customers desire, as numbered Swiss bank accounts once did, and as “privacycoin” crypto projects today remind us. Lack of privacy stems from government restrictions, not from private-sector inability.

Lagarde says that “There may be scope for governments to encourage private sector solutions” to the problem of financial inclusion “by providing funding, or improving infrastructure.” More effective ways to encourage private sector solutions to banking the unbanked would be (a) deregulation, especially not requiring permission for innovations in mobile and other payment platforms, (b) guarantees not to interfere in private payment platforms once launched, and (c) guarantees on the privacy of private sector accounts from government surveillance, which might help to attract some of the warily unbanked to deposit use.

To her credit, Lagarde recognizes that people value the privacy provided by currency: “Cash, of course, allows for anonymous payments. We reach for cash to protect our privacy for legitimate reasons: to avoid exposure to hacking and customer profiling, for instance.” But she is vague at best, and dissembling at worst, on how deposits on the central bank’s books would insure privacy. She promises that customer identities “would not be disclosed to third parties or governments unless required by law,” but adds: “Anti-money laundering and terrorist financing controls would nevertheless run in the background. If a suspicion arose it would be possible to lift the veil of anonymity and investigate.” Would any suspicion by a policeman or tax collector be enough to lift the veil? If so, then the CBDC would be no more private than ordinary current-day bank deposits. J. P. Koning not unfairly characterizes what Lagarde offers as a “Faustian bargain”: “The state will issue digital currency that protects us from information snoops in the private sector, on the condition that it gets a back door.”

In the US and Europe, at least, banks today are required to notify regulators of large or “suspicious” deposit and withdrawal activities, and are expected to surrender account information to the authorities on a written request, without a court order or a search warrant.[2] It is hard to imagine that any government would instruct or allow its central bank to create accounts with greater privacy protection against the national government than commercial bank accounts have.

In the background to Lagarde’s speech is a November 2018 IMF staff discussion note on CBDC that she cites. [3] The note itself does not offer a brief for CBDC, but rather enumerates plusses and minuses. Comparing CBDC to cash, demand deposits, and non-bank private digital payment media, the note’s authors find that “CBDC would not strictly dominate any of these alternative forms of money.”

The staff discussion note emphasizes the hope of Keynesian macroeconomists that “interest-bearing CBDC would eliminate the effective lower bound on interest rate policy,” but points out that it would have this effect “only with constraints on the use of cash.” It is the abolition of easily stored cash that allows a central bank to impose negative interest rates, not the introduction of CBDC in either form.

The IMF note acknowledges a case for stronger payments privacy:

There are legitimate reasons people may prefer at least some degree of anonymity—potentially when it comes to everyone except the government, and regarding the government unless a court order unlocks encrypted transaction information. It is a way to avoid customer profiling—commercial use of personal information, for example, to charge higher mortgage rates to people who purchase alcohol. Another advantage of anonymity is limiting exposure to hacking. Moreover, anonymity is often associated with privacy—widely recognized as a human right (as stated in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights [Article 12] and elsewhere).

The note also observes that a central bank offering retail deposits “could increase risks to financial intermediation. It would raise funding costs for deposit-taking institutions.”

Just as importantly on the minus side, although not mentioned in either Lagarde’s speech or the IMF staff note, is that diverting deposits from commercial banks to the central bank will shrink the funding for the economic-growth-enhancing small business loans that commercial banks provide, in favor of central bank holdings of sovereign debts and government-favored private securities (for the Fed at present, mortgage-backed securities).[4] The IMF authors of the note observe that in a world where CBDC accounts replace both currency and ordinary checking deposits “only the commercial bank could create money.” Correspondingly, in a world of CBDC alone, only the central bank would direct the loanable funds marshalled by checking deposits.


[1] Bordo and Levin (2017) have suggested that private commercial banks should provide the front end for access to the central bank’s balance sheet, because they are better at customer service. Designated “digital cash” account balances at commercial banks would differ from ordinary account balances only in that balance transfers between accounts would be nearly instantly settled. Near-instant settlement would be enabled by the commercial banks holding “segregated reserve accounts” at the central bank, linked to their customers digital cash accounts, and presumably backed by high or even 100-percent, reserves. Under their proposal commercial banks would act as so many central bank branch agencies. Their proposed system would have all the same drawbacks of outright CBDC accounts discussed herein.

[2] Under the Right to Financial Privacy Act of 1978, a bank or other financial institution is protected from customer lawsuits for disclosing customer account information to a US federal agency (BATF, DEA, FBI, IRS, etc.) that subpoenas it in connection with suspected illegal activity. The agency is required only to notify an individual customer (but not a business customer) of the request, giving the customer ten days to seek legal redress. In court the agency does not need to meet the Fourth Amendment standard of probable cause. Under later statutes including the Patriot Act, notice is not required where the individual is suspected of drug trafficking, espionage, or terrorism. In a recent law review article, W. F. McElroy notes that today “the privacy of financial records from unwarranted government intrusion is under siege.”

A television host in New Zealand has denounced Bitcoin scammers for impersonating him to fraudulently market a dodgy cryptocurrency business. In a sharp message, breakfast host Daniel Faitaua made it perfectly clear: he has never owned any Bitcoin, and any websites stating otherwise are absolutely false, local media reports. The fraudsters claimed Faitaua doubled his money instantly after they showed him how to buy $250 worth of cryptocurrency on-air. “I just want you to stop for a second. Wherever you are, just stop,” Faitaua said, looking directly into the camera. “A number of websites have been posting a story saying this…

          This AI can predict Telegram pump-and-dump schemes with 80% accuracy      Cache   Translate Page      

Pump-and-dump schemes are some of the oldest and sketchiest scams used in the financial sector, and sadly, the cryptocurrency industry has seen its fair share. There is an ever-growing list of coins whose values are artificially inflated, only for early buyers to sell off at a pre-arranged peak price. Less informed investors often fall foul thinking increased interest in the coin is a sign of long-term growth – only it isn’t. This helps to drive the price up even further, but sadly the outsiders don’t know to sell, and end up losing out when the price tanks. Spotting a pump-and-dump…

Trading recommendations:

According to the H1 time - frame, BTC has been trading downwards. As I expected, the price tested the level of $3.738. Most recently, I have found the rejection from the Ichimoku cloud (resistance), which is a sign that sellers are in control. I also found that BTC is trading below the resistance trendline, which is another sign of weakness. My advice is to watch for selling opportunities. The downward targets are set at the price of $3.691 and at the price of $3.490.

Support/Resistance

$3.832 – Intraday resistance

$3.691– Intraday support

$3.691 – Objective target 1

$3.500 – Objective target 2
