BTC bounces as FED expands Balance Sheet
# Bitcoin is up some 5% today as the FED announced they would be expanding their Balance Sheet

The FED announced late yesterday that they would be resuming their treasury securities purchases.

However, they were quick to note that this would not be the same thing as Quantitative Easing.

Or more commonly known as "QE".

How it's different than QE is beyond me, but the FED Chair was quick to mention that this program would not be the same:

> “I want to emphasize that growth of our balance sheet for reserve management purposes should in no way be confused with the large-scale asset purchase programs that we deployed after the financial crisis. Neither the recent technical issues nor the purchases of Treasury bills we are contemplating to resolve them should materially affect the stance of monetary policy.”

(Source: https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-10-08/powell-says-fed-to-resume-balance-sheet-growth-but-it-s-not-qe)

# Either way, we have a FED balance sheet that is expanding for the first time since 2013

The FED's balance sheet had been decreasing the past several years, and hasn't been increasing since 2013.

Whether bitcoin bounced specifically because of this news is of course debatable, as the timing of the bounce doesn't match up perfectly.

However, being that the bitcoin market is an immature market still, sometimes news doesn't impact prices as quickly as it does in other markets.

# Some thoughts

My bet is that bitcoin is going up because the FED is going to be starting up a program that is very similar to QE, a program that historically has inflated asset prices.

This is exactly why and how bitcoin works as a store of value.

With interest rates dropping, and the FED's balance sheet expanding, there is a very favorable macro environment for bitcoin gains.

Couple that with the halving now only 7 months away and we have all the right ingredients for a major move in bitcoin in the near future.

Stay informed my friends.

It's true that BTC will go up but before that it has max chance to drop down to 5800-6100 As per my analysis if someone is willing to invest they should wait for market to drop down at 5800 to take max profit.But  yes! I agree bull run is coming soon

Why do you say that? This isn't technical analysis but more of a macro theme that should be bullish for bitcoin in general.

the fed is doing fraud and counterfitting no matter what type of sugar they put on it 
its a joke and i agree bitcoin will move up but in ten years from now bitcoin will not be the main currency since its not fungible and private and once people find this out they will go to monero and by then im sure there will be many more like monero

also i would start using decentralized exchanges if i were you or anyone else 
have a great day bud


ps this is for people that want to protect their money from the criminals 
i for one am on that side of the fence

Unfortunately I do not share your enthusiasm for privacy coins at the moment. They are in for a major fight against world governments and it won't be kind to privacy coins now or in the near future. Perhaps some day they will have a place, but I think we are a long ways from that.

nothing unfortunate about it JR 
bitcoin was also attacked but since its transparent and non fungible these evil fuckers have regulated it 
in saying that bitcoin took a whole long time to get regulated and controlled by blockstreams help which is bilderberg and world bank and i do agree privacy coins are in a fight and once bitcoin is completely regulated and they can steal everything from people only then will privacy coins excel like bitcoin did when the establishment was attacking them
so its not unfortunate you think that way since i totally agree with you on what you are ccommenting
