Key Events Could Shake Up Bitcoin and Crypto Market in July/August: SFOX

dailyhodl

4d ago

Summary

In the June 2019 edition of our monthly volatility report, the SFOX research team has collected price, volume, and volatility data from eight major exchanges and liquidity providers to analyze the global performance of 6 leading cryptoassets  –  BTC, ETH, BCH, LTC, BSV, and ETC.

Note: In order to better report and analyze the entirety of the continued crypto rally, the team at SFOX has extended the period this report covers from the beginning of June through July 9th.

Current Crypto Market Outlook: Mildly Bullish

Based on our calculations and analyses, the SFOX Multi-Factor Market Index, which was set at uncertain at the beginning of June 2019, has been moved to mildly bullish as of July 9th, 2019.

Analysis of June and Early July 2019 Crypto Performance

What to Watch in the Rest of July 2019

Look to these events as potentially moving the volatility indices of BTC, ETH, BCH, LTC, BSV, and ETC in the remainder of July and early August:

The Details: June 2019 Crypto Price, Volatility, and Correlation Data

Price Performance: A Bitcoin-Dominated Rally

Bitcoin is the headline of the ongoing crypto rally. The largest cryptocurrency by market cap opened June 2019 at a price of $8542.45; as of July 9th, it had risen to a price of $12490.74.

As of July 9th, BTC/USD led all asset pairs tracked by our report in month-over-month growth at 57.81%. ETH/USD followed with 26.94% month-over-month growth, with gold in third place at 11.01%  – compared with 3.49% for the S&P 500. Ethereum Classic had the distinction of being the only asset tracked by our report with negative month-over-month growth as of the 9th (-5.95%).

Volatility: Riding Bitcoin’s Waves

By looking at the 30-day historical volatilities of BTC, ETH, BCH, LTC, BSV, and ETC, we see that the volatility of most major cryptoassets formed a relatively tight band that saw a sharp uptick on June 26th  –  the day BTC challenged the $13,000 price barrier. This increase in volatility may be related to the expiration of BTC futures contracts on June 28th, especially because these expirations included BitMEX’s quarterly contract.

The exception to the general volatility trend was Bitcoin SV, whose outsized volatility decreased throughout the month to more closely align with the rest of the market; this may potentially be a consequence of debate over Craig Wright being overshadowed by broader market news such as Facebook’s Project Libra and BTC’s rally.

By looking at the 30-day historical volatilities of ETH, BCH, LTC, BSV, and ETC as a percentage of BTC’s 30-day historical volatility, we can see more clearly that most altcoin volatility was following BTC’s volatility, with BSV starting to follow BTC near the end of June.

Price Correlations: Bitcoin Positivity

BTC’s 30-day price correlations with ETH and BCH were both relatively positive as of July 9th. In contrast, BTC has an unusually negative correlation with Litecoin. This reinforces the narrative that, throughout 2019, Litecoin may be establishing itself as an asset with fundamentals independent of Bitcoin.
