Sentiment Trader Digital currency saw ethereum climbed Monday to a near two-month high amid renewed uncertainty about the future of bitcoin.

Ethereum traded about 10 percent higher near $330 Monday afternoon, after earlier rising 15 percent to $347.05, its highest since June 23, according to CoinMarketCap. At its session high, the site's data showed ethereum had gained 70 percent for the month and more than 4,000 percent for the year.

The gains in ethereum could be part of the market's reaction to the increasingly fractured bitcoin community.

Ethereum 7-day performance




Bitcoin traded more than 1 percent lower near $4,055.88, according to CoinDesk, well off a record high of $4,522.13 hit last Thursday. Even with the last few days' decline of about $500, bitcoin remained about 40 percent higher for August and more than quadruple in value for the year.

The decline in price came as digital currency enthusiasts have increasingly focused on the potential of an upgrade proposal called SegWit2x to split bitcoin again in November, just months after its Aug. 1 split into bitcoin and bitcoin cash.

Bitcoin cash traded 15 percent lower near $603, down more than $450 from Saturday's record high of $1,091.97, according to CoinMarketCap. The bitcoin offshoot still held gains of nearly 200 percent from a low of $210 hit on the day of the split Aug. 1.

Meanwhile, investors gained more confidence in a smooth upgrade for ethereum's network, a proposal called "Metropolis" expected in the next several weeks that should improve transaction privacy and efficiency.

Other factors contributing to ethereum's gains Monday included steady demand from South Korean investors and news that London-based online trading company IG also launched support for trading ethereum on Monday.

Trade in South Korean won accounted for about 30 percent of trading in ethereum, according to CryptoCompare. Bitcoin accounted for nearly 29 percent and the U.S. dollar about 25 percent, the site showed.

Traders were also using bitcoin to buy digital currencies such as Monero, a cryptocurrency focused on making transactions confidential and untraceable.

in the news - Is there a lightning speed’ stock market sell-off in August? What this all about..... See below.

Is there a lightning speed stock market sell-off in August
Is there a lightning speed stock market sell-off in August

With the recent bull market rally, market analysts are ademate that stock can continue to drive higher than we have ever seen in the history of the stock market. Is this true, have recent earnings been good enough to take us and soar past recent highs, or is this positively just a house of straw with nothing to show and ready to be blown over in a gust of wind?

The months of August and September are notorious for dramatic declines in the stock market, and there are a select few analysts who are sending out a dire warning investors to be mentally and financially ready when if it does eventuate!.


Stocks fell last week after a combination of weak retail earnings and bank stock performance spooked some investors.

"In the dog days of summer, we can get hit with lightning speed sell-offs, if we go back over 40 years, August and September have been notorious for seeing large and dramatic sell offs in the market. 

Rather than join the masses of scared investors in the next downturn, some analysts are seeing the other side of the coin. Meaning they are recommending clients to view it as a buying opportunity. That means having some cash available, and stock ideas on hand that could be put to work in a "cool and methodical" way.

Big wall st, guru type investors have not been spooked by the sell-off last week. There are charitable trust took action and purchased stocks like Nvidia and Activision Blizzard on weakness. These are just some ideas going forward while market constituents watch the ebbs and flow with the market. 

Despite the fact that everyone was freaking out, the positive backdrop for stocks didn't change. We have low inflation, low interest rates, good earnings and a weak dollar. So astute investors realize that sort of market environment can be very healthy in these dire times. Sometimes you have to look past the trees to see the forest!. 

Low inflation means that earnings for companies could be worth more in the future. often considered by some as to be a huge wrapped up Christmas gift, as high inflation could erode the long-term value case for equities.



Additionally, low interest rates can act as a positive catalyst to spur business in the U.S., and prompt investors to buy stocks with strong dividends. There are no guarantees but the role of this article is to try and help readers weigh up the positives and negatives and make informed decisions from that. 

Regardless of the positive implications of interest rates or inflation, some traders still have reservations.The first on the list would be that Congress is not in session currently. In this perspective, both sides of the aisle are at odds with President Trump. Thus, the market could move higher while Congress is not in session, and then be impacted negatively when it reconvenes in September. Hedge fund managers do watch the events in congress to make important decisions with their trades. So that might mean the stock market sits on shaky ground the next few months. 

Other worries on market analysts list were technology stocks, the recent bounce in transportation stocks and interest rates.


Ultimately, a good strategy going into the worst two months or the year, might be for investors to start selling the worst stocks in their portfolio that have managed to go up as a part of the broad rally and have some cash on hand for the next downturn.
