JPMorgan CEO, Jamie Dimon hit the wires on Tuesday with comments that were not Bitcoin-friendly. Dimon said that he ‘would fire any trader trading Bitcoin for being stupid,’ and that the move into Bitcoin ‘won’t end well.’  On the other hand, Nasdaq survey sees ‘Long Bitcoin’ as the world’s most crowded trade, which means the majority of traders disagree with JPMorgan. Only time would tell.

Technical Points: BTCJPY confirms Ichimoku bearish signal

From a technical standpoint, BTC/JPY chart shows that the Kijun line has officially crossed below the Tenkan line of the  Ichimoku Kinko Hyo moving averages. This marks the first Ichimoku-based bearish signal, indicating we could see further drops towards the 38% and 50% Fibonacci retracement levels at 420,000 and 390,000 respectively.

This drop is despite the JPY weakness across the board, indicating that Bitcoin is losing to JPY at this point in terms of strength. For example, USD/JPY opened Wednesday’s Asian session on a strong bullish sentiment, approaching the resistance level of 110.60.
