    Alex Cobb 24/7 ODL Transactions Alpha version Here is a preview of the stream The info displayed (in this version): Transferred amount (in XRP, USD) From exchange - To exchange Likelihood it is an ODL batch of transactions 24 hour volume and number of ODL batches For now, it seems Ripple is merging many small transactions into batches of 40k XRP transactions. So, as of now, it takes a little while to see those batches showing up on screen, because of the current volume on Bitstamp, Bitso and Coins.ph. Every 15 minutes or so, a new batch of 40k XRP ODL shows up, at the time of writing this, the first day of this stream. This is by no mean a representation of any pattern for any given day. Sunday was very active compared to Monday for example. It is likely we see the pace getting faster as time goes by. This stream will be live 24/7, Alex Cobb will still stream on normal hours as this one will be running on the side. As additional tools, you can check Volume (Bitstamp to Bitso, Bitstamp to Coins.ph) https://public.tableau.com/profile/hmatejx#!/vizhome/xRapid_search/xRapidtrafficTag and Bitso Liquidity https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1pZ2POpljERK-oV3rusaCmq58U2badn5i9WOCIP9Wtmg/edit#gid=1888946776 _____________________________________________________________________________ Edit to show some of the bundles _____________________________________________________________________________

    @Caracappa @Plikk Just ignore him. Don't feed the trolls. He gets excited when he gets attention like this. A lot of us appreciate people that go through the effort of doing TA because it helps provide some insight into what is going and because we have no interest in doing it ourself. It also sparks interesting conversation between opposing viewpoints.

    Firstly I agree that Ripple are actively attempting to rise the price of XRP. I think they made this decision about three months ago. I think they are doing this because a higher price will give more ODL on the exchanges for XRapid customers I am sure that they bought Bitso for a strategic reason I would like to draw your attention to this screenshot Bitso liquidity index today. I have been watching this closely and thought I saw a pattern whereby the volume rises from about 23 of the month and peaks about the 14th of the following month and then rapidly drops off. I thought this pattern represented a bulge of end of month pay-cheques being sent home on XRapid. This month the volume started to rise on about 23rd and reached new peak on the 14th, but instead of dropping off it went on rising and rising, and it now on the 20th seems to be accelerating to new highs. Today is not finished, so the final figure for today might be even higher. This is very interesting and unexpected. live Liquidity index link: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1pZ2POpljERK-oV3rusaCmq58U2badn5i9WOCIP9Wtmg/htmlview#gid=1888946776

    First time I’ve seen XRP volume hit 10%. I thought the last couple of days at 8% was a new high. Then it’s suddenly 10. I think utility is starting to kick in. (Disclaimer: this is just based on my casual observations over the last few months... )

    XRPUSD formed a triangle that is set to break by Tuesday around 4 pm EST. I would expect we will see our next leg up by tomorrow and should get above $0.30, hopefully for good.

    Ever noticed how accurate weather predictions are these days, even a week in advance? Atoms in air/water move randomly, but we identify patterns and make predictions based on previous patterns. The entropy in the markets is probably identical to the entropy in a cubic meter of air. Of course a whale can crash the market or vice versa. TA just helps us understand what has happened in the past, based on infinite parameters such as bots, human psychology, and try to extend that forward. I know very little about TA. But it's better to quantify and analyse past data to try to understand the present/predict the future, than to not bother to do so at all (like the weather).

    It happened! XRPUSD crossed bullish on the weekly MACD. This has been an eventuality for the past few weeks, but nice to finally see. For those that don't remember or didn't see it before, this is significant because there have been very few instances of this in XRP's past and all have led to significant price increases. Past performance doesn't guarantee future behavior but.... this is pretty spot on as a bullish indicator. Now let's see some price appreciation! Waiting...

    It's coming! Slowly but surely we'll break upwards. Meanwhile, we continue pushing ever higher with XRP/MXN liquidity so upwards progress is definitely being made on one front. Checking this thread in conjunction with the liquidity tracker has become something of a daily ritual - love having this thread to keep the emotions in check. I've also noticed on https://xrpcharts.ripple.com/#/xrp-markets that Bitso 24 hour, 3 day, and 7 day liquidity have been consistently rising, with the almost all payments being XRP/MXN.

    Conversation with a whale

    It is interesting to see Ripple also commenting on the coordinated FUD with twitter bots that seemed to be happening. As if some entities wanted to keep people out of XRP as long as they could handle it. And I think it worked, the people who were already in mostly accumulated more, some indeed got frustrated and sold their position but I assume not many new investors entered due to the fud. The FUD seems to be dying down now, accompanied by a slow but steady price rise. Also funny to see that during multiple ups, pessimistic members stop posting, viciously waiting for a drop and attempt to push it down just that little extra. Coordinated? Only they know. One thing I know is it only takes a couple of weeks of positive news spreading to have instant amnesia in the market and get all those 2017 dorment accounts awake again. Retail is sleeping right now, but once regular news outlets start bringing good news, people will start looking for ways to compensate the low interest rates on their savings accounts. Perfect setup for a new wave imo if pushed right. If this pattern continues your 'novemberish' indeed is a crossline on many charts. Or perhaps they know of something to be announced during Swell?

    Fast rises result in a technically overbought asset in a purely speculative market = rapid dump. Slow rise results in established floors, slowly growing confidence = staying power. People trust something that's been growing for months or years rather than something that blew 1000% in 2 days out of nowhere. Though admittedly I'll take the 1000% pump but you won't be hearing from me anymore if that happens because I will be on an island somewhere

    In normal markets, cyclical events that are expected to affect the price get priced in by the markets. I would expect the same phenomenon here... People have figured out the SWELL pump so I think it's priced in. If something really earth shattering is announced, we might pump. Likewise if absolutely nothing consequential comes of it we might dump some. But I'm on record saying that the growth we are seeing right now is unrelated to SWELL.

    Nice @Panosmek this stands out as outstanding "ODL volume grew 5 times in Q3 compared to Q2 and we are currently about 20 days into Q4 and its volume has surpassed the half that of Q3. And this is only the beginning."

    Tracking XRapid usage

    This sounds fairly plausible. Maybe Ripple advised for incremental volume targets for MGI and others to reduce risk of increased volatility around available liquidity across exchanges? If the trend on the charts continues, in addition to XRP's price slowly rising with the rest of the market, I'd also expect to see a significantly more stable XRP price if the rest of the market turns downward temporarily while in one of these higher XRP volume channels. Basically price will appreciate as the market appreciates, but downward pressure is nearly eliminated during these xRapid volume ramp ups. So liquidity will steadily be built over time with the only downwards pressure on price/iquidity when the rest of the market swings down during the low xRapid volume days of the month. Kind of like 3 steps forward, 2 steps back. This would lead to baby steps with liquidity / price and volume increases.

    Respect the channel! Not sure if this slow and steady weekly rise has any correlation to the slow and steady increase in liquidity of xRapid use on Bitso. It is interesting to see that the two are both steadily increasing.

    Since Molten is busy, I thought I'd post some more charts from one of my friends on another site. This is my friend who is a student of Wyckoff TA. It isn't Elliot Wave, but there are some similarities. This guy could probably answer all of @Tinyaccount's questions. I have great respect for his work. A more advanced student than I am. My friend says we could be in Phase D...see below.

    Tracking XRapid usage

    The chart in OP isn't the volume but the "Liquidity Index". The sharp drop offs that yo are seeing is an effect of that the volatility of that day is increasing significantly compared to the previous days. (See https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1pZ2POpljERK-oV3rusaCmq58U2badn5i9WOCIP9Wtmg/htmlview# and compare the value in column I for the dates 9/16/2019 and 9/17/2019 for example). Personal i think it makes more sense to only track volume which is steadily increasing without any drops: See this post for more information:

    Tracking XRapid usage

    Is it possible that you had identified a cycle in a single, or small group of senders, who initially represented the bulk of the value being transferred. So their pattern of usage affected the overall chart. But perhaps the tap is opening and that signal is now being drowned by a more constant increasing volume in all the other senders? (Not sure if I explained my point properly...)

    Looking at the bitcoin moving averages you can see the 50 day broke below the 100 and is moving toward the 200. Admittedly these do not look good but I am still looking for a reversal. The Moving averages and the XRP chart look a little more promising.

    How does this look, fellows? It very much feels like in February-----BTC bottoms and stays sideways for a while. Some random small cap altcoins jump big first, and then big cap altcoins start to move. BTC dominance decreases, until BTC makes a sudden move, altcoins plummet again. Rince and repeat.

    I think...or maybe more like I "feel" .........that we don't drop again. BTC is not out of the woods....but this is the time frame where I expect to see the chart start to turn up again. Right now, I have to back out to the daily to see where we are, really. We have two things in play. One is that BTC needs to come back to life. This is expected (by me, anyway), but not yet really happening. Any time now, we could begin to see it, imho. It could be starting today, but we need to have a few days in a row to show a trend. The second is that we continue to see XRP rise against BTC...which is ongoing and already looking quite good. Both need to go well, and then we get back up where we were last year, which is the first big step.

    I'd like to see XRP go to a buck twenty in the next ten weeks. We've seen a gradual erosion of support for almost a year, from when I started buying XRP in November of last year, right up until the 25th of last month. Now the trend has reversed, and we should bounce. And bounce hard. I see no particular benefit to a slow rise, from a fundamental standpoint or a technical standpoint..... But that's just my opinion, man.

    Ask and ye shall receive. I took a stab at charting total crypto market cap. I'm not sure I have a real cohesive narrative here, the chart is sort of meh. We have an ascending trend since January and we are respecting that line. The RSI is nearing oversold and the Bollinger Bands certainly are near the bottom, indicating a possible bounce, on the weekly chart. MACD, however, is still bearish and looks like its a least a few weeks away from showing anything bullish. So, in summary, I would say that it looks like we are slowly going up but without any imminent moon lambo rocketships. Yet.

    I don't have all the answers but I will make a few observations. A lot of people do set stops.......and they tend to set stops in predictable spots. More volatile markets require more willingness to allow for bigger drawdowns without getting taken out by your stops. In stocks, people often go into a trade with a willingness to take no more than a 10% drawdown......but in micro-caps that's often too tight. In crypto it's even worse. For this reason I never set a hard stop on any crypto, even for a swing trade. And.....it is very well known that Fibonacci levels are where assets tend to find support and resistance...whether this has something to do with the sheer magic of mathematics and the rhythms of the known universe....well maybe......or maybe it's just a self-fulfilling prophecy because almost all good traders look at fib levels and EXPECT that's where coins will bounce. XRP and many other alts have started to trend higher again, ...so TA works better now than it did when we were near capitulation and just bouncing around with no sustained direction. The trend is always the traders friend......up or down.You can look at the whole trend, measure from the low to the high and calculate fibs....but then you can also look at each minor wave in that trend and draw fibs for each one and find levels where fibs are confluent.....those tend to be the areas of strong support and resistance. The longer the trend the more data you get. Have I been reading? Yes......lol. But then I'm a student, not a master, of anything having to do with markets. I'm not much of an Elliot Wave student, but I do think that if a market is in a good trend, it works okay if you don't project out too far into the future. Is this because it somehow takes typical human herd behavior into account and models it in a cogent way? Yeah, probably. That question is above my pay grade. My toilet training with regards to TA is cycle counting, ala Walter Bressert (RIP) and now practiced by Bob Loukas and many others, and applied to many markets. But I am enjoying all the great TA here and I'm enjoying the CryptHawk videos when I have time to watch them. I do look at the fib levels he's sharing and the waves he's drawing. WTF not? At heart I consider myself to be a pragmatist. If it works, it works. Who cares why? Maybe some day when I'm quite old it will come to me in a sudden epiphany like a bolt of lightning . Eureka!!! Or not..... I'm pretty sure if I ever do come to a more precise understanding it will be because I was paying attention and trying to polish my skills, as opposed to not using the tech. Until then, I will continue to study at my own leisurely pace.
