BTC/USD jumps toward $11,000 as Bitcoin ETF by SolidX, VanEck set to launch to institutions

A  Bitcoin  Exchange Traded Fund (ETF) is finally here – albeit in a limited fashion. VanEck and SolidX – which have received several delays to their Bitcoin ETF requests – will use an exemption to launch a limited version of such instruments to institutional investors.  

The firms will use an exemption that allows selling to certain institutional investors. The Wall Street Journal has broken the story and says that Bitcoin ETFs will be available from September 5.  

BTC/USD  has responded positively to the news, extending its gain. The granddaddy of  cryptocurrencies  is now trading at $10,700 after having topped $10,000 on Monday.

EOS/USD technical analysis: EOS breaks longer-term level but momentum might slow down

Above is the 4-hour  EOS/USD  chart  and it has broken a major trendline on the higher timeframes (see chart below).

The RSI indicator is showing something called a bearish failure swing, this is sometimes known as a bearish hidden divergence. It can be an indication that prices may fall from here.  

On the downside 3.00 seems to be an area of psychological support but now price waves have made a higher high and higher low we could see a break of the next resistance at 3.41 which price briefly printed above earlier on in the session.
