Bitcoin and Crypto Market Updates (May 29th)

Market Updates

Debt deal gives risk assets a push!

Over the weekend Biden and McCarthy were able to reach a deal on raising the debt ceiling. The deal must now move to Congress for a vote before the 5th of June to avoid a default.

Over the weekend bitcoin was able to push back above the key resistance level of 27k. We now need to see this level flipped as support to confirm continued upside.

All eyes are on the ETH/BTC chart this week to see if we can push through the key resistance zone. If we can do this then we could finally see Alts getting a bid.

We get additional confluence if the USDT.D chart loses the mid-level so this is another key chart to watch this week.

The AI hype continues with large-cap tech helping to push markets higher. My index that tracks AAPL, NVDA, MSFT, AMAZON, TESLA, GOOGLE, META and AMD shows we could still push further into the 78% Fib retracement level.

Looking at the history of asset bubbles it shows AI is still just a ‘’Baby bubble for now’’ with more upside left in the tank.

Deep fake AI image wipes $500 Billion off S&P 500

The financial markets experienced a significant dip when an AI-generated image depicting an explosion at the U.S. Pentagon circulated on Twitter. The convincing image led to multiple breaking news accounts sharing it, causing the S&P 500 to drop 30 points within minutes. However, once it became clear that the image was a deep fake, the market rebounded. The incident highlights the need for AI regulation, as emphasized by Genevieve Roch-Decter, who pointed out the potential consequences of such misinformation.

Nvidia becomes a Trillion dollar company

Nvidia’s stock has surged, putting the company on the verge of joining the trillion-dollar valuation club. The share price soared by 24% following an impressive earnings report that surpassed expectations. Nvidia’s leading position as an AI chip supplier, along with its projected $11 billion in sales for the current period, contributed to the stock’s rise. This puts Nvidia within reach of a valuation achieved by only a handful of companies. Analysts quickly raised their price targets, with JPMorgan doubling its target to $500. While Nvidia’s meteoric rise stands out, other chipmakers like Intel and AMD have not experienced the same level of growth. Nvidia’s shares are up 160.6% year-to-date.

Enhancing Trading Strategies with ChatGPT

In the fast-paced world of trading, staying ahead of the game requires constant innovation and adaptation. Use of AI in Trading Strategy is one of those cases.

This article explores how ChatGPT, an advanced AI language model, can be harnessed to enhance trading strategies and decision-making processes. Discover the exciting possibilities that ChatGPT brings to the world of trading.

As an appetiser to this article check out this capture of a real conversation between the AI and myself earlier today.

This is just the tip of the iceberg, but I’m sure it gives you an idea of how you can use the power of AI to your advantage, just like we have been commenting on in previous entries of the newsletter for Algo Trading.

Here are some tips for chatGPT that I have used myself recently.

Technical Analysis Reinvented:

Traditional technical analysis often requires a manual interpretation of charts and indicators. ChatGPT revolutionizes this process by assisting traders in developing custom indicators tailored to their specific needs. By leveraging ChatGPT’s capabilities, traders can create and backtest indicators, such as trend-following indicators and volume analysis tools, to gain valuable insights into market trends and dynamics.

Intelligent Trade Ideas:

Finding profitable trade ideas can be a daunting task. ChatGPT acts as a virtual trading assistant, offering insights and suggestions based on market data and historical patterns. By engaging in conversations with ChatGPT, traders can explore new perspectives, discover potential entry and exit points, and identify emerging trading opportunities.

Risk Management Optimization:

Effective risk management is crucial for sustainable trading success. ChatGPT can assist traders in optimising their risk management strategies. By analyzing historical data and market conditions, ChatGPT can provide guidance on setting appropriate stop-loss levels, determining position sizes, and implementing risk mitigation techniques to protect capital and minimize losses.

Backtesting and Strategy Validation:

Validating trading strategies through rigorous backtesting is essential. ChatGPT can help traders design and implement backtesting frameworks to evaluate the performance of their strategies. By simulating trades based on historical data, traders can gain insights into strategy effectiveness, identify potential pitfalls, and refine their approach for improved performance.

Integrating Human Expertise:

While ChatGPT offers valuable insights, it’s important to remember that human expertise and intuition play a vital role in trading. By combining the power of ChatGPT with human intelligence, traders can achieve a symbiotic relationship that leverages the strengths of both AI and human analysis.

Conclusion:

As the trading landscape continues to evolve, embracing the potential of artificial intelligence becomes crucial. ChatGPT empowers traders by offering new perspectives, generating trade ideas, and optimising risk management strategies. However, it’s essential to remember that AI should augment human decision-making, not replace it. By harnessing the power of ChatGPT and integrating it with your trading expertise, you can unlock new horizons and gain a competitive edge in the ever-changing world of trading.
