Bitcoin & Crypto Market Turn Red Again: BCH, XLM, EOS, TRX Analysis
  • The total crypto market cap jumped from $188.0B, but it failed to stay above $200.0B.
  • Bitcoin price rally above the $7,500 level was completely reversed.
  • BCH price is somehow holding the key $205 and $200 support levels.
  • EOS price is facing a strong resistance near the $2.700 area.
  • Stellar (XLM) price could continue to move down towards the main $0.0500 support area.
  • Tron (TRX) price is down 2% and it is approaching the $0.0140 support area.
  • Bitcoin (BTC) and the crypto market cap are resuming their downtrend. Ethereum (ETH), BCH, stellar (XLM), ADA, EOS, litecoin, ripple, and tron (TRX) are likely to continue lower.

    Bitcoin Cash Price Analysis

    Recently, bitcoin cash price tested the main $200 support area and later started a decent recovery against the US Dollar. BCH price climbed above the $210 and $215 levels. However, it failed to surpass the key $220 resistance area.

    As a result, there was a fresh decline below the $210 level and the price seems to be heading back towards the main $200 support area. Any further losses may perhaps push the price towards the $185 support.

    Stellar (XLM), EOS and Tron (TRX) Price Analysis

    EOS price made another attempt to settle above the $2.700 and $2.750 resistance levels. However, the price failed to continue higher and it is now declining towards $2.600. The key support on the downside is near the $2.500 level, below which the price could revisit the $2.350 support.

    Stellar price remained in a bearish zone below the $0.0585 and $0.0600 resistance levels. XLM price is currently declining and it seems like it could break the $0.0520 support area. Any further losses may lead the price towards the $0.0500 zone.

Vision Critical appoints new CEO, moves headquarters to Toronto

Category: 

Vancouver-founded customer experience management startup Vision Critical Communications has announced it is replacing its CEO Scott Miller with Ross Wainwright and is moving its headquarters to Toronto.

Vision Critical said Vancouver will remain an important hub for the company.

Wainwright comes to Vision Critical from global networking and services provider Dimension Data/NTT, where he led the Americas region as CEO. The outgoing Miller will remain on the Vision Critical board of directors, where Wainwright will also obtain a seat.
 

Riaz Raihan is also set to join Vision Critical as president of products, and will officially begin next month. A Vision Critical spokeswoman told Business in Vancouver that transitioning the headquarters from Vancouver to Toronto was due to the fact both Wainwright and Raihan will be based there.

“Ross is an exceptional business leader and a proven CEO with a track record of leading diverse executive teams that deliver high-quality performance in complex enterprise software,” said Phil Deck, chairman of the Vision Critical board. “Riaz has an impressive history as a global C-suite digital technology executive leading product management and engineering teams.”

The recent change in guard comes a number of years after what The Globe and Mail has reported as a period of infighting between former CEO Angus Reid and directors and shareholders at Vision Critical, which ended with W Capital Partners and Georgian Partners buying out Reid. Miller took over as CEO around 2016 and was able to bring the company to positive cash flow this year.

Employers put the brakes on hiring

Employers put the brakes on hiring

U.S. employers unexpectedly put the brakes on hiring in November, according to ADP Research Institute and Moody’s Analytics.

Private sector employment increased by 67,000 jobs, dropping 45% from the prior month’s pace, according to the jobs report issued on Wednesday. Economists expected an increase of 150,000 jobs in November, according to the average estimate in a Dow Jones poll.

“The job market is losing its shine,” said Mark Zandi, chief economist of Moody’s Analytics. “Manufacturers, commodity producers, and retailers are shedding jobs. Job openings are declining and if job growth slows any further unemployment will increase.

The healthcare industry was a bright spot in the report, while the manufacturing sector continued to struggle, said Ahu Yildirmaz, ADP Research Institute’s vice president and co-head of the ADP Research Institute.

“The goods producers still struggled; whereas, the service providers remained in positive territory driven by healthcare and professional services,” Yildirmaz said. “Job creation slowed across all company sizes; however, the pattern remained largely the same, as small companies continued to face more pressure than their larger competitors.”

The chart below demonstrates the rate of increase since 2013:

The report reveals that the number of jobs added in October was revised down from 125,000 to 121,000.

Below is a breakdown of job segments that saw changes in employment between October and November:
