The company has partnered with several major YouTube channels and is currently in the process of partnering with hundreds of independent media outlets that are affected by other social media censorship policies. YouTube channels that are being censored and had their revenues destroyed can now earn revenue from a cryptocurrency that is also utilized as money from day one.

The CEO of Freedom Currency Inc., Kent Lewiss describing the platform said,

“Independent media now has a platform to report the truth on what is occurring worldwide and provide a platform to for people worldwide to be free from corporate media propaganda. Qualified independent media outlets can take advantage of the free video conferencing combined with screen sharing to conduct live interviews, then save and post as a video as well as distribute in multiple social media platforms.”

Offering an insight into the upcoming developments, Lewiss adds,

“We are also in the process or rolling out our FreedomMerchant API in which businesses worldwide can plug into their websites and utilize our payment gateway.”

Freedom.social offers a unique opportunity for the people to be part of a platform that befits the definition of a free world while supporting free speech and unhindered access to truthful information. The creators of Freedom.social have made it easier for everyone to participate in the ICO by enabling Visa and MasterCard payments to purchase Minutemen Reserve (MMR). Once the ICO is underway, investors will be able to register themselves on the platform and buy the first 1 million Minutemen at a unit price of $0.25, the platform will release the second batch of 1,000,000 Minutemen priced at $0.35, third batch of 1,000,000 Minutemen at $0.45 and the final batch of Minutemen at $0.55 per unit.

Polybius Cryptobank project announces five week-long ICO, starting May 31, 2017.

ICO Crowdfunding  The Estonian-Swiss project Polybius (a.k.a. project Polybius Bank), a financial institution for the next generation, will launch its crowdfunding ICO today on May 31st, 2017.

BUZ INVESTORS  PRESS RELEAAE ICO Crowdfunding  The Estonian-Swiss project Polybius (a.k.a. project Polybius Bank), a financial institution for the next generation, will launch its crowdfunding ICO today on May 31st, 2017.

For five weeks from May 31st, investors from all over the world will be able to purchase Polybius investment tokens with cryptocurrencies. These tokens will be in the form of a Smart Contract guaranteeing a share in the bank’s annual profits.

At the heart of the project lies the idea of reinventing the classic bank model using the most up-to-date technologies, including blockchain and specialized artificial intelligence. Ethereum Blockchain will underpin the work of the Polybius investment tokens; banking documentation will operate on Emercoin Blockchain; while private blockchain developed by the AtticLab company will be used for bank transactions.

ICO Crowdfunding  

Developing the Polybius bank project has taken more than a year. An international team of technical specialists, bankers and financial technology entrepreneurs from five European countries has been collaborating on this project.

The best financiers in Europe can be counted among the project’s consultants. Most recently we were joined by the CEO of Admiral Markets, which has been operating on the world market for more than 14 years.

Even before the ICO launch, the ideas at the core of this project have attracted interest from several potential partners. In particular, one of the biggest scoring agencies in Europe — Creditinfo, has expressed interest in the possibilities offered by the Digital Pass identification system, an integral part of the Polybius product ecosystem.

The information security of the future financial institution will be provided by Betta Security that services Russia’s and CIS biggest banks like Alpha Bank and Sberbank for over 10 years now.

The ICO launch is eagerly awaited by thousands of crypto-technology enthusiasts, who have joined Polybius’ groups on social networks and on Telegram, or who have signed up to the mailing list.

The pool of potential investors in Polybius comes to more than the 500,000-strong user base of cloud mining cryptocurrency service HashFlare — the previous commercially successful business established by the founders of the Polybius Foundation.

The Project’s business model, taking into account three possible development scenarios depending on the total proceeds of the ICO, can be found on the company’s website.

The Polybius ICO begins May 31st, 2017. In order to take part, users will have to install a Polybius purse from the site polybius.io and purchase tokens with euros, dollars and cryptocurrency.

BUZ INVESTORS  Bitcoin Basics “Now what the heck is Bitcoin?” asked my cousin, bustling into the coffee shop where I sat sipping on my coffee. I’ll put it mildly; my cousin is not the savviest of people. Answering that question meant I had to start from the beginning—from the Bitcoin basics.

BITCOIN BUZZWORD

Adam heard (what he calls) the “buzzword” from a bunch of coworkers who invested in Bitcoin and were making wild Bitcoin price predictions for 2017

So what really is it and why are so many going crazy about it? Sadly, Google wasn’t much help to Adam—it’s all gobbledygook for newbie Bitcoin investors. So, I’m making a Bitcoin guide for him that might come in handy for you, as well.



OTHER STORIES BUZ TRADERS FOLLOW

Bitcoin Basics

Why Bitcoin?

Satoshi Nakamoto faced a dilemma in 2016. If he wanted to transact money, he roughly had two options. First, he could buy and sell using cash, which could exchange hands without him divulging any information about himself. But cash had a downside of safekeeping. Large sums were difficult to carry around and ran the risk of getting stolen.

The other options encompassed checks and electronic transactions via credit cards, which were safer to carry but compromised personal information. Nakamoto didn’t like the government or banks surveilling his life.

What Is Bitcoin?

Two words; electronic money!

Satoshi Nakamoto—the enigmatic founder of Bitcoin—wrote a computer code that generated complex mathematical equations. These mathematical equations, when solved, give the solver the rights to pass on ownership of a virtual currency—Bitcoin.

Now, Nakamoto was the first person to solve some equations and get hold of a few bitcoins. He then found enough people who believed in his idea to start transacting in bitcoins.

So, Who Creates Bitcoin?

Nobody! That’s the whole idea of Bitcoin. It is decentralized—which means no central authority or individual controls it. That’s the fundamental concept in bitcoin basics that you need to wrap your head around.

Satoshi Nakamoto programmed the computer code in such a way that only a certain number of bitcoins get unlocked every two years and will do so for the next 150 years. Yes, 2140 is the cut-off year. By then, a total of 21 million bitcoins will be in circulation. That’s it! No more bitcoins after that.

What Is Bitcoin Mining?

To put it simply; mining means solving Nakamoto’s mathematical equations.

You know by now that only a certain sum of the 21 million bitcoins becomes available every two years. But the bitcoins are locked in computer code, so to say. To unlock them, someone has to do the complex math.

The equations put out by Nakamoto’s code are like puzzles. Nakamoto was the first one to solve some and get access to the first bitcoins. The equations are open to all computer geeks out there. Anyone can solve them to “mine” or unlock the bitcoins.

I’m No Computer Geek, Do I Have to Mine Bitcoins?

No, you don’t! Mining is for Bitcoin enthusiasts or for those looking to make money out of it by mining and selling their rewards. If you want to get hold of bitcoins, you can do one of the following

Okay, But How Does Bitcoin Work?

It’s easy! All you need is a smartphone or a computer with Internet access and you’re set.

The first thing you need to do is download a Bitcoin wallet. That’s where you’ll be keeping all your bitcoins. You can find some of the popular e-wallet apps on the Bitcoin website: (Source: “Choose your Bitcoin wallet,” Bitcoin, last accessed April 13, 2017.)

Once you have the wallet, the next step is to get your public key or address. This is your identification. The app lets you send a request for the address. You’ll receive back a lengthy alphanumeric code. This is the address you give to other bitcoiners when sending or receiving bitcoins.

Where Can I Buy Bitcoin?

If you have nobody to send or lend you your first bitcoins, you can go buy them. Where? On a Bitcoin exchange. That’s where bitcoins are traded for real currency.

You can create an account on a Bitcoin exchange and link it up with your bank. Once the bitcoins you’ve bought get deposited into your account with the exchange, you can then transfer them to your bitcoin wallet.

The price of a bitcoin is set by market forces of demand and supply, and is currently hovering over $1200 for one bitcoin. The unit of bitcoin is expressed as BTC.

Is Bitcoin a Legal Currency?

Yes, absolutely! At least in the U.S. and most of the other countries, it is.

In fact, Bangladesh, Bolivia, and Ecuador are the only countries in the world where Bitcoin is outrightly banned All other countries are either mum on its use or have explicitly allowed it.

Should I Invest in Bitcoin?

So I believe Adam finally understands the bitcoin basics and so do you. Now comes the final question; should one invest in this digital currency?

It depends on your risk appetite.

If you look at its penetration into the mainstream, you can easily tell that the currency is still in its infancy. But if you look at its adoption rate, the growth is vivid.

From a market valuation of a few cents to a billion dollars in just three years—that kind of growth is unprecedented in history. Neither Apple Inc (NASDAQ:AAPL), nor Alphabet Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL), nor Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) have matched up to that growth.

Buz Investors Best Digital Currencies Digital currencies have proved lucrative for tech-wise traders, but where should you put your money in 2017: Ethereum or Bitcoin? Both the Ethereum value and the Bitcoin value skyrocketed in recent years. In order to figure out which of them is headed for a repeat performance, we need to take a closer look at what each cryptocurrency brings to the table.

Bitcoin is obviously the biggest player in town. It has become the public face of digital money, which gives it a leg up over Ethereum. The increased exposure resulted in Bitcoin’s massive market cap, its ascendancy to safe haven status, and its vast library of third party apps.

Ethereum vs Bitcoin

  1. Blockchain is a type, not a thing. Don’t be confused by people saying things like, “Bitcoin payments are made over the blockchain.” Such statements are casual references to the double-ledger system that was pioneered with Bitcoin. There are dozens of different blockchain networks right now, but they all model themselves after the blockchain system that began with Bitcon. (Double-ledger refers to the fact that every transaction is recorded simultaneously on the thousands of computers that power the blockchain, making it open and transparent.)
  2. Bitcoin was the first blockchain-based digital currency. It was groundbreaking for that reason, but also for envisioning a new financial order. The code was designed to unlock a finite amount of Bitcoin units at a predictable rate. In other words, Bitcoin promised to preserve the purchasing power of its digital currency by constraining supply.
  3. Ethereum is the most serious threat to Bitcoin. Not only has this currency jumped 688.89% during the last two years, but it’s also expanded the capability of blockchain tech. It has introduced new ideas like smart contracts and the Decentralized Autonomous Organization. But more on that later.

Bitcoin History & Bitcoin Prediction 2017

Late in 2008, a mysterious paper was posted online under the name Satoshi Nakamoto. No one quite knew who this person was, where he lived, or what his credentials were. But he laid out a blueprint for what would become the Bitcoin platform we know and use today. (Source: “The Rise and Fall of Bitcoin,” Wired, November 23, 2011.)

The paper was titled “Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System.” Two months after it was first published, Nakamoto released the first version of the Bitcoin platform that allowed for users to mine a total of 21 million bitcoins by the year 2040. The first block of Bitcoin, known as the “Genesis Block,” was mined. Then the first transaction took place. The wheels were turning.

What happened over the next few years was remarkable. Ambitious entrepreneurs joined the Bitcoin community and started mining, launching Bitcoin exchanges, and adding vendors to the platform. They had two goals in mind:

Ethereum Features & Ethereum Forecast 2017

The Ethereum Project came into existence much after Bitcoin. At first, a lot of people wrote it off as “just another Bitcoin imitator,” but then they realized this cryptocurrency has some truly unique features. These features—smart contracts and the Decentralized Autonomous Organization—could help Ethereum attract more users and developers, thus causing its price to explode.

But before we slap a price target on Ethereum, you should probably understand what makes these features so special.

In the waning months of 2013, a young programmer named Vitalik Buterin wrote a white paper on blockchain technology. He believed that the technology could be used for more than just payments; in fact, he argued that Bitcoin’s core technology has countless applications in other fields. It shouldn’t be just a payments platform.

I/O Digital Set to Release the Long Anticipated I/O Coin “DIONS” Blockchain Upgrade

I/O Digital Set to Release the Long Anticipated I/O Coin “DIONS” Blockchain Upgrade

I/O Digital Set to Release the Long Anticipated I/O Coin “DIONS” Blockchain Upgrade

The I/O Digital Foundation announces the upcoming launch of DIONS I/O Coin Blockchain upgrade as a part of its second development roadmap.

I/O Digital Set to Release the Long Anticipated I/O Coin “DIONS” Blockchain Upgrade

December 13, 2016, Amsterdam, Netherlands – The team behind I/O Coin (IOC) cryptocurrency (I/O Digital Foundation) has announced they are in final beta and gearing up for the upcoming launch of DIONS (Decentralized Input Output Name Server) Blockchain upgrade. It is the first major milestone in IOC’s second development roadmap following the successful completion of the previous one set during the platform’s initial launch. As a part of its initial development roadmap, the team had created a full featured HTML5 IOC wallet alternative to Bitcoin-based QT wallet. It was followed by IONS (semi-centralized domain names) and POS I/O – a Proof of Stake (PoS) volume controlled blockchain upgrade.

The origin of IOC and DIONS goes back to the days when Proof of Work (PoW) based Bitcoin was introduced following Satoshi Nakamoto’s whitepaper. The August 2012 paper by Scott Nadal and Sunny King on PoS based Peercoin cryptocurrency created yet another standard for digital currency platforms.

IOC, over a period of time, has absorbed the best of both PoW and PoS technologies. Started as an X11 PoW based cryptocurrency, IOC successfully made a transition to unique PoS I/O. The PoS based IOC used a volume controlled blockchain, capable of instant transfers that received confirmations in less than 30 seconds. With block times of 1 minute, the I/O Digital Blockchain has proven itself to be extremely energy efficient and ten times faster than Bitcoin.

Considering Bitcoin’s lack of user-friendliness and privacy; risk of data bloat and centralized security breaches in Fintech. On December 2014, the I/O Digitaldevelopment team proposed a major upgrade to the main IOC blockchain called DIONS. Its fully AES 256 encrypted decentralized name server, messaging, data storage and a decentralized “GPGTOOLS” like system offers a distinct advantage over Bitcoin. The DIONS Blockchain also enables identity storage, avatar creation and encrypted document storage capabilities that are transferable between users. All the features are readily hard coded into a user-friendly HTML5 wallet system.

Encrypted Decentralized Messaging

DIONS will be accompanied by a Skype-like decentralized end-to-end encrypted “chat” system with built in AES 256 encryption. The chat feature will not only allow users to send encrypted private messages, but also provides an option to broadcast messages to a wider world. It offers an attractive option for third party developers intending to build a censorship resistant decentralized “Twitter-esque” micro-blogging service.

“Think of Skype chat, but with a strong AES256 end to end built-in encryption all decentralized over Blockchain … this is coming out with DIONS”

Says the I/O Digital development team

Decentralized Identity & Name Server System (Aliases)

The I/O Digital blockchain DIONS, will allow users to store sensitive identity credentials ensuring a way for users to manage their reputation and control their data. The decentralized name system will be censorship resistant. DIONS which is part of the I/O Digital suite of tools enables the creation of arbitrary key / value pairs. Thus the I/O Digital blockchain provides a decentralised DNS database. Names can right now, be referenced as domain records by using our own or even 3rd party APIs. There is no restriction on the form of our DIONS aliases, they can take any arbitrary form and be transferable between users. The DNS records may be for example A records, CNAME or MX records. Thus our blockchain provides a ready made DNS database upon which our own or even 3rd party APIs can be employed. (This can also reduce network traffic in terms of DNS queries) DIONS will allow for private creation of aliases and identity storage (so called ‘private aliases’ which can be made public at will by the user). A private alias will provide users an added layer of privacy at the time of creating an alias. In this way, users can create both public and private usernames with which transactions can take place. Combining a unique, memorable ID with their brand name to receive I/O Coin payments will be highly beneficial to individuals and business alike.

Businesses, as well as being able to make use of their own brand names, can now use unique human readable IDs to serve as a customer’s, invoice or reference numbers (e.g. HSBC:8008135). This provides a more familiar format for customers accustomed to the naming conventions of email or websites. It also allows businesses to benefit from vastly reduced fees and the robustness and easy auditability of a decentralized distributed database.

Data Storage

I/O Digital’s Blockchain also helps manage intellectual property rights, certificates of authenticity and condition reports. A hash value included in an I/O transaction can serve as Proof of Existence for any digital file, with the timestamp of hash value serving as an immutable proof. The data storage feature along with an arbitrary key allows users to input data within the HTML5 wallet either through keyboard or ‘File Upload’ option.

I/O Digital Ecosystem – Protecting Individual Freedoms In Blockchain

Our I/O Digital Ecosystem has the capability for encrypted communications approved by the NSA for levels up to “Top Secret”. It offers a unique feature in self contained RSA public key cryptography over the blockchain. The I/O Digital team has built the first RSA public key communications system with AES 256 fully integrated over the blockchain for world-wide secure communications. Thus it can be viewed as a replacement for gpgtools (which has been widely used throughout the world for over 17 years), with the blockchain * replacing * all central key servers, for a completely decentralized means of encrypted communication.

“[…] the potential user base for this is huge, we have built the Blockchain version of GPGTools and there will be no more centralized key servers needed, literally everything is decentralized […] Furthermore, nobody has been here before by ensuring the ability to protect individual freedoms through strongly encrypted communications and we’re tremendously excited” –

I/O Digital development Team

Developers through third party APIs could use DIONS to allow encrypt/decrypt, sign/verify and import keys from text selections, files, folders, images, audio for censorship free transmission across the worldwide network that I/O Digital already has become.

“… Users the world over can now safely and securely transmit photographic images, audio recordings, news reports or indeed any arbitrary data content across the world over Blockchain by using our Ecosystem.”

– I/O Digital development Team

DIONS opens up great opportunities for businesses who can create their Proof of Concept around the I/O Digital Blockchain technology and figure out if Blockchain is interesting for their services. There is a bright future ahead for Blockchain development and services.

An award winning team

The I/O Digital Development team and IOC have won the public award in the Blockchain category of the Euro Fintech Awards. They have also made it to the finals of the Benzinga FinTech awards. I/O Digital was recently listed in the KPMG / H2 ventures FinTech top 100 as an Emerging Star.

The team of I/O Digital are all highly experienced industry professionals who know how to get results, deal with technological challenges and secure a place in the Blockchain ecosystem with their technology.

I/O Digital’s ultimate goal is to have companies use their blockchain technology to gain a competitive advantage by creating a synergy between services and operate with fewer costs while adding new services to their portfolio.

It offers an attractive option for third party developers intending to build a censorship resistant decentralized “Twitter-esque” micro-blogging service. “Think of Skype chat, but with a strong AES256 end to end built-in encryption all decentralized over Blockchain … this is coming out with DIONS” Says the I/O Digital development team Decentralized Identity & Name Server System (Aliases) The I/O Digital blockchain DIONS, will allow users to store sensitive identity credentials ensuring a way for users to manage their reputation and control their data. The decentralized name system will be censorship resistant. DIONS which is part of the I/O Digital suite of tools enables the creation of arbitrary key / value pairs. Thus the I/O Digital blockchain provides a decentralised DNS database. Names can right now, be referenced as domain records by using our own or even 3rd party APIs. There is no restriction on the form of our DIONS aliases, they can take any arbitrary form and be transferable between users. The DNS records may be for example A records, CNAME or MX records. Thus our blockchain provides a ready made DNS database upon which our own or even 3rd party APIs can be employed. (This can also reduce network traffic in terms of DNS queries) DIONS will allow for private creation of aliases and identity storage (so called ‘private aliases’ which can be made public at will by the user). A private alias will provide users an added layer of privacy at the time of creating an alias. In this way, users can create both public and private usernames with which transactions can take place. Combining a unique, memorable ID with their brand name to receive I/O Coin payments will be highly beneficial to individuals and business alike. Businesses, as well as being able to make use of their own brand names, can now use unique human readable IDs to serve as a customer’s, invoice or reference numbers (e.g. HSBC:8008135). This provides a more familiar format for customers accustomed to the naming conventions of email or websites. It also allows businesses to benefit from vastly reduced fees and the robustness and easy auditability of a decentralized distributed database. Data Storage I/O Digital’s Blockchain also helps manage intellectual property rights, certificates of authenticity and condition reports. A hash value included in an I/O transaction can serve as Proof of Existence for any digital file, with the timestamp of hash value serving as an immutable proof. The data storage feature along with an arbitrary key allows users to input data within the HTML5 wallet either through keyboard or ‘File Upload’ option. I/O Digital Ecosystem – Protecting Individual Freedoms In Blockchain Our I/O Digital Ecosystem has the capability for encrypted communications approved by the NSA for levels up to “Top Secret”. It offers a unique feature in self contained RSA public key cryptography over the blockchain. The I/O Digital team has built the first RSA public key communications system with AES 256 fully integrated over the blockchain for world-wide secure communications. Thus it can be viewed as a replacement for gpgtools (which has been widely used throughout the world for over 17 years), with the blockchain * replacing * all central key servers, for a completely decentralized means of encrypted communication. “[…] the potential user base for this is huge, we have built the Blockchain version of GPGTools and there will be no more centralized key servers needed, literally everything is decentralized […] Furthermore, nobody has been here before by ensuring the ability to protect individual freedoms through strongly encrypted communications and we’re tremendously excited” – I/O Digital development Team Developers through third party APIs could use DIONS to allow encrypt/decrypt, sign/verify and import keys from text selections, files, folders, images, audio for censorship free transmission across the worldwide network that I/O Digital already has become. “… Users the world over can now safely and securely transmit photographic images, audio recordings, news reports or indeed any arbitrary data content across the world over Blockchain by using our Ecosystem.” – I/O Digital development Team DIONS opens up great opportunities for businesses who can create their Proof of Concept around the I/O Digital Blockchain technology and figure out if Blockchain is interesting for their services. There is a bright future ahead for Blockchain development and services. An award winning team The I/O Digital Development team and IOC have won the public award in the Blockchain category of the Euro Fintech Awards. They have also made it to the finals of the Benzinga FinTech awards. I/O Digital was recently listed in the KPMG / H2 ventures FinTech top 100 as an Emerging Star. The team of I/O Digital are all highly experienced industry professionals who know how to get results, deal with technological challenges and secure a place in the Blockchain ecosystem with their technology. I/O Digital’s ultimate goal is to have companies use their blockchain technology to gain a competitive advantage by creating a synergy between services and operate with fewer costs while adding new services to their portfolio.

I/O Digital Set to Release the Long Anticipated I/O Coin DIONS Blockchain Upgrade

I/O Digital Set to Release the Long Anticipated I/O Coin DIONS Blockchain Upgrade

The I/O Digital Foundation announces the upcoming launch of DIONS I/O Coin Blockchain upgrade as a part of its second development roadmap.

The I/O Digital Foundation announces the upcoming launch of DIONS I/O Coin Blockchain upgrade as a part of its second development roadmap. December 13, 2016, Amsterdam, Netherlands – The team behind I/O Coin <span data-recalc-dims=(IOC) cryptocurrency (I/O Digital Foundation) has announced they are in final beta and gearing up for the upcoming launch of DIONS (Decentralized Input Output Name Server) Blockchain upgrade. It is the first major milestone in IOC’s second development roadmap following the successful completion of the previous one set during the platform’s initial launch. As a part of its initial development roadmap, the team had created a full featured HTML5 IOC wallet alternative to Bitcoin-based QT wallet. It was followed by IONS (semi-centralized domain names) and POS I/O – a Proof of Stake (PoS) volume controlled blockchain upgrade. The origin of IOC and DIONS goes back to the days when Proof of Work (PoW) based Bitcoin was introduced following Satoshi Nakamoto’s whitepaper. The August 2012 paper by Scott Nadal and Sunny King on PoS based Peercoin cryptocurrency created yet another standard for digital currency platforms. IOC, over a period of time, has absorbed the best of both PoW and PoS technologies. Started as an X11 PoW based cryptocurrency, IOC successfully made a transition to unique PoS I/O. The PoS based IOC used a volume controlled blockchain, capable of instant transfers that received confirmations in less than 30 seconds. With block times of 1 minute, the I/O Digital Blockchain has proven itself to be extremely energy efficient and ten times faster than Bitcoin. Considering Bitcoin’s lack of user-friendliness and privacy; risk of data bloat and centralized security breaches in Fintech. On December 2014, the I/O Digital development team proposed a major upgrade to the main IOC blockchain called DIONS. Its fully AES 256 encrypted decentralized name server, messaging, data storage and a decentralized “GPGTOOLS” like system offers a distinct advantage over Bitcoin. The DIONS Blockchain also enables identity storage, avatar creation and encrypted document storage capabilities that are transferable between users. All the features are readily hard coded into a user-friendly HTML5 wallet system. Encrypted Decentralized Messaging DIONS will be accompanied by a Skype-like decentralized end-to-end encrypted “chat” system with built in AES 256 encryption.

Western Digital Corp: This Is Why WDC Stock Is Shooting Higher

WDC Stock Is Shooting Higher Western Digital stock was trading at $56.52 when that report was published, and on Tuesday in after-hours trade, WDC stock closed at $66.91. Quite an impressive run in a short amount of time.

I have been using price and volume data to discern trends and forecast future prices for over a decade, and I have enjoyed some success doing so. This style of analysis is known as technical analysis. It is not perfect, but it has been instrumental in giving me the ability to subjectively apply trading strategies to potential investments.

WDC Stock Is Shooting Higher

The WDC stock chart above illustrates that the long-term level of support sits at $40.00. This level is highlighted with a blue horizontal trend line. This level served as resistance from 2009 to 2013, and was tested numerous times before it was finally broken. It is not uncommon that when a major level of resistance is finally broken, it becomes a level of support.

Shortly after a bottom was established in WDC stock, a bullish pattern started to emerge. There are two parallel lines that define this bullish trend. Such a trend is what traders refer to as an ascending channel. There two trend lines that define the upper and lower bounds. The share price oscillates between these two lines for as long as the trend permits.
