Bitcoin value is holding price above support near $275 and attempts to sell price down have been foiled by strong buying support.

Bitcoin price is holding above support and may consolidate between $280 and $320 before advancing. The market may opt for additional decline, yet Bitcoin traders and investors have nothing to lose from downside continuation. The only potential loss, is if traders anticipate an advance from current levels and buy into it before we have confirmation that decline is ruled out.

Google’s strong quarterly results, which supported a massive 16.3% surge in its shares on Friday, has buoyed investor confidence in tech stocks ahead of next week’s tech-heavy slate of earnings reports.

Numerous tech companies will release second quarter earnings next week, among them International Business Machines, Microsoft Corp and Apple, all of which are expected to show growth.

Wall Street expects earnings of the SP technology sector to grow by 2.7% for the second quarter.

Netflix, inc (NASDAQ:NFLX)

Netflix’s rapid growth continues. Revenue in the three months ended in June rose to $1.65 billion, yielding profit of 6 cents per share.

Analysts on average had expected a profit of 4 cents per share on revenue of $1.65 billion, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S.

During the quarter, Netflix added 3.3 million subscribers including 0.9 million in the United States and 2.4 million internationally. “Netflix’s continued investment in content, in distribution, in partner marketing, and in its user interface are paying off in member growth and operating leverage”.

S&P 500

European stocks are firmer and US index futures hover near record highs, but gold is sliding to a five-year low, leading a rout in precious metals, as expectations of higher US interest rates drive demand for the dollar.

The firmer greenback is also suppressing industrial commodities and forcing some emerging market currencies to multi-year troughs.

The FTSE Eurofirst 300 is starting the week with a 0.6 per cent advance after a subdued Asia session where Tokyo was shut for a holiday. US futures contracts indicate the S&P 500 will add 2 points to 2,129.

That would leave the Wall Street benchmark just two points shy of a new closing record, helped of late by an easing of Greek debt crisis tensions, calmer conditions in the Chinese stock market, and a generally well-received US second quarter earnings season.
