Shares of the Grayscale Bitcoin Trust traded at an 80% premium at one point this week.

The GBTC is still the only brokerage-tradable asset to transact Bitcoin, putting it in demand.

The price of BTC has also soared this past week.

Don't buy one BTC for the cost of two BTC. Here's how to avoid this premium and get exposure to BTC.

The bitcoin craze has really picked up steam over the last couple of weeks. The price of the digital currency has skyrocketed from previous all-time highs around $1,300 to an additional almost 40% on top of that, trading over $1,700 at several points this past week and over $1,800 this morning.

Bitcoin soars past $1,700 for the first time

 seems unstoppable, topping $1,700 for the first time on Tuesday.

The cryptocurrency trades up 3.45% at $1,720.82 a coin, as trade grinds higher for the 16th time in 18 sessions. It has gained nearly 50% during its run.

Tuesday's gain comes without any obvious catalyst as traders await the US Securities and Exchange Commission's ruling on whether it will reverse its decision to reject the Winklevoss twins' exchange-traded fund.

The SEC rejected two bitcoin ETFs back in March, saying it "is disapproving this proposed rule change because it does not find the proposal to be consistent with Section 6(b)(5) of the Exchange Act, which requires, among other things, that the rules of a national securities exchange be designed to prevent fraudulent and manipulative acts and practices and to protect investors and the public interest."

Bitcoin recently has shrugged off China restricting trade, the SEC's rejecting of the two bitcoin ETFs, and threats from developers to create a "hard fork" that would split the cryptocurrency in two.

The USD Index has been declining in the past several weeks (and in general in 2017). The question is if this weakness changed anything regarding USD’s long-term uptrend?

Let’s take a look at the charts (chart courtesy of http://stockcharts.com).


We don’t think so. Another very important long-term support level was reached last week (the 50-week moving average), which stopped the declines 3 times in 2015 and served as support and resistance on other occasions.

Will Aussie follow Cad’s path – down against the dollar?  I don’t know, but willing to bet…


My editor’s note is this: I realize correlation isn’t causation.  I realize correlations can change at any moment because every moment in the market is unique.  I realize it isn’t always easy to determine which variable leads and which follows in a seeming correlation; it may be neither as both may be driven by some other narrative/variable/rationale, etc.  But sometimesdivergences in prior correlations which have stood for a while can represent nice setups for a winning trade.
