If to speak about medium-term market dynamics as a whole, now it is not, the trend is not formed, the flat dynamics will continue. Of the individual members to make predictions and make trading decisions extremely difficult, because the more time the price is in a narrow corridor, the more likely that this lull will suddenly end and there will be a sharp impulse movement beyond it. Unfortunately, to predict either when this will happen, in any direction, impossible.
It is noteworthy that Bitcoin guardedly responds to new news hooks. News less affect the price. The reasons should be sought in the fact that strong motion is a necessary condition for growth, and the arrival of new money, preferably institutional.
While in the absence of necessary legal fields and the “grey” status of cryptocurrency these tools on the market to come can not, because can not form a new trend.

Itself hacker attack took place last Friday, September 14, but found her company only three days later, then the input/output means has been suspended and the stock exchange reported the incident to the financial services Agency of Japan. One gets the impression that until September 30, cryptocurrency will ignore all the news.
