After freaking out newbie Bitcoin traders, and unnerving some veteran players last week with its price volatility, Bitcoin had largely traded sideways. But it was back to its old, volatile ways on Sunday. The price skyrocketed above $11,800, only to fall surreptitiously in hours. Then, it started plowing back up again, and continued to ebb and flow throughout the day.
Bitcoin’s swift run ups to record highs recently may be coming to an end, but before it does, it could see $8.000. That’s the message from Goldman Sachs, which has released a note cautioning traders against betting on Bitcoin going above $8.000. Over the weekend, Bitcoin’s price surged above $7,500 before retreating Monday to below $7,000. It was only just Oct. 20 when Bitcoin had set another record, pricing above $6,000. Bloomberg explains how technical analysts for Goldman’s see the run up.
The effort to bring to fruition the cryptocurrency’s space first ETF continues. Two players recently filed papers with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission to start such a fund. Instead of these ETF ideas being related to Bitcoin, they are specific to Blockchain. Reality Shares and Amplify ETFs submitted filings to the SEC last week. Reality Shares wants to start the Reality Shares NASDAQ Blockchain Economy ETF. Amplify wants to create the Amplify Blockchain Leaders ETF.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
