Is Coinbase Playing Us? Litecoin! (LTC) =D

Is Coinbase playing us? I tried to execute several buy orders in Litecoin today, right when it was hitting the 78.6% retracement level. However, all of my orders were strangely rejected. I tried multiple methods of payment, and at first I received confirmations of the trades. Then, when I checked back later, I saw that the transactions were completely gone. At this point, I was immediately reminded of a YouTube vid, where an individual in the video was describing the exact same issue. I just thought it was weird, and it makes me slightly concerned about the solvency of Coinbase. By definition, a Ponzi scheme is "a form of fraud in which belief in the success of a nonexistent enterprise, is fostered by the payment of quick returns to the first investors, from money invested by later investors." With that in mind, it is possible that Coinbase can't execute certain transactions, because they have some sort of insolvency issue going on behind the scenes. Additionally, there have been several occasions where Coinbase has completely restricted trading, withdraws, and the transfer of funds. Their common excuse, is that their systems can't keep up with the intensifying demand, but I'm not so sure that I buy that anymore. I just thought I would share that info.

Now, let's look at Litecoin! As you all know, I have been screaming from the mountaintops, that if the $200 level was lost, we would see accelerated selling. Looking at the chart, you can see that LTC formed a bear flag (black flag,) broke down, and sent prices screaming down to my $150 target at the 78.6% retrace. As expected, the buyers stepped in and launched LTC higher, closing a strong looking hammer candle back inside of the bear flag . However, it still hasn't broken above the critical support level . So, don't get too excited just yet. We may simply be confirming the "critical support" level as new overhead resistance, and that would mean that this selloff is NOT over.

As you can see, the last two candles on the chart have unsuccessfully tried to get above the critical support/resistance level. If this continues, LTC will definitely turn back to the downside, to continue heading lower. Looking at the MACD , we can see that it's printing some heavy bearish momentum, so the sellers still have an edge. In fact, until the bulls get LTC back above the critical support level , the bears can easily, at any moment, force this weak market lower. On the downside, look for a breakdown from the bear flag , and continuation selling that sends LTC back to the $150 handle. Beyond that, prices could fall all the way to $127, and then $105. On the upside, the bulls have to get back above the critical support, and preferably back above the 50 EMA (in orange) and the 200 EMA (in purple,) which are forming a Death Cross, by-the-way. So, keep your eyes on the $200 level. If we can't break back above it, look for further downside.

Excellent analysis, sir. I say you nailed it the other day and $105 is in play.
Quick question, why do you use 200 and 50 EMA vs 20 and 50?
@opliko, i think 200 and 50 are the right periods to spot the death cross!
Coinbase or GDAX and limit or market orders?
Since we are on the subject of coinbase, I've always used coinbase for my deposits. Two part question.

1) If they go down and out, where else could we withdraw funds as USD and transfer to our bank account?

2) If you end up making 1 million dollars (I don't have 1 million dollars) how can you withdraw that much out? Coinbase has a limit of 15k to 100k a day. 1 million would take a shit load of withdraw. How does million/billion crypto holders do it?

@xleratehighlander, i think the strategy is to have many exits so the limits dont hold u down as much

Funny story about Coinbase, I was catching what I thought was a dip a couple weeks ago at $252 for a quick flip, picked up 13LTC only to have things break the other way by quite a bit, thought I had lost a chunk of change. Checked Gdax and they had mysteriously cancelled my filled order...I couldn't have been happier.

Keep the good stuff coming, it's always appreciated!
I usually keep a few thousand as cash (USD wallet) in coinbase for rainy days like this.

It worked today, I was able to purchase at $160, $150 and $145 (ladder buys). So I can confirm holding cash in your portfolio works (coinbase).

I can not speak for sure about deposit from wire transfer, bank transfer or credit card during peak hours, but cash (USD Wallet) worked.

Similar thing happened to me on Conbase. Put in an order, successful. A while later I checked transaction history, showing up as "cancelled". What's up with that?
@i8myapl, Coinbase does NOT have enough Cryptos to cover their sales!!! Smells Fishy; in other words...CRYPTOS Should be MUCH HIGHER than they are a present! When this nut cracks; the prices will SKYROCKET. Coinbase and other exchanges like it have a limited shelf life; a year or two from now, will anyone really be using Coinbase when something much bigger and better is cheaper?! Coinbase and other exchanges have created bottlenecks to suppress the prices for Cryptos! HODL people, HODL!
