Whenever you are researching a particular exchange rate you are actually interested in two currencies as the value of a currency must always be quoted relative to a second currency.

So it follows that if you are determining the best time to transact, in this case the USD vs BTC, you should pay attention to both United States Dollar and Bitcoin news and forecasts.

United States Dollar (USD) - Market news and forecasts

In the third week of April the Dollar Index was rallying strongly towards the mid-97s, slightly below major resistance at 97.70, a break of which would be massively positive for the greenback. The index was up 1.7 percent year-to-date.

The dollar’s strength comes in spite of a dovish surprise in March from the Federal Reserve, which ditched two interest rate hikes from its 2019 projections. Fortunately for dollar holders, the rest of the world has problems and other important central banks also turned dovish, removing much of the incentive for selling USD.

Bloomberg research warned in April of potential for a large upcoming move in the US dollar, up or down. Over the past quarter-century, three prominent troughs in the JPMorgan Global FX Volatility Index were followed by dollar moves over 6-month periods worth 10-15 percent. The index was trading in mid-April at a 5-year low.

Bitcoin (BTC) - Market news and forecasts

In early April, bitcoin suddenly jumped to a 4-1/2-month high of $5,100 for reasons not entirely obvious. A $900 move in less than an hour was attributed by some to technical buying, triggered by a breakout from a narrow, low-volatility trading range, and by others to algorithms or to a reduction in bitcoin mining rewards.

Promising research by DataLight in April highlighted real-world use for bitcoin: in 2018 it proved itself to be a popular way to send large amounts. At $3.4 trillion, bitcoin’s total volume for payments last year nearly caught up with Mastercard ($5.9 trillion) and dwarfed PayPal ($578 billion). Interestingly, bitcoin’s average transaction size was 400 times that of Mastercard.

Though the Lightning network is first needed (this solves the crypto upscaling problem), DataLight believes bitcoin is “almost certain [to become] the world’s main payment system,” and this justifies much higher bitcoin prices. It forecasts new all-time highs above $20,000.
