CAN BITCOIN BULLS BREAK ABOVE TRENDLINE RESISTANCE?

Over recent weeks, Bitcoin prices (BTC/USD) have continued to trade between key technical levels, finding support above the $40,000 handle.

Despite the sell-off that has persisted since its peak in November last year (just short of the $70,000 handle), fundamental factors have provided an additional catalyst for price action and will likely do so for the remainder of Q1.

 

With investors now pricing in higher interest rates, a stronger US Dollar and higher treasuries have hindered the digital assets ability to climb higher. However, as risk appetite remains elevated, bears have been limited in their attempt to drive prices back towards the lower bound of the descending channel, providing support at $36,426.

BITCOIN (BTC/USD) PRICE ACTION

As bulls strive to recover losses from the steep decline in prices, the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement from the 2020-2021 move continues to hold bulls at bay at $44,123 with the next level of resistance holding firm at $46,000.

 

Although an array of economic data and rising geopolitical tensions may drive price action in either direction, both buyers and sellers will need to break through the zone of confluency mentioned above. If bears are able to break below $36,000, a retest of the $30,000 level may be probable.

On the contrary, bulls will need to drive prices above $46,000 to regain control over the imminent trend.

    • Does anybody know the BIL (SPDR Bloomberg 1-3 Month T-Bill ETF) equivalent with a GBP currency hedge? I want the interest yield but I don't want the currency risk.
    • Capital, win loss ratio. If you have a trading edge and you can consistently win 50% of your trades, so your winning 5 trades out of 10. So if your risking 1% of your capital per trade, out of your 10 trades 5 would be losers, so that’s 5% loss and realistically out of the 5 winning trades, some would make small profits, some break even and 1, 2 or 3 could run nicely IF you can let your profits run, basically your making money out of 2 trades out of the 10 trades (80/20 Rule Pareto principle) So a $20,000 acct risking 1% is $200 per trade, this will keep the trader with his trade risk based on being able to win 50% of his trades. A long term trend trader can win with 30% wining trade. Basically you need to know your numbers. Rgds Pete
    • Investing in stocks can be a great way to grow your wealth over time. However, there are different approaches that investors can take when choosing which stocks to buy. Two of the most popular approaches are growth investing and value investing. Growth Investing Growth investing is an investment strategy that focuses on buying stocks of companies that are expected to grow at a faster rate than the overall market. These companies are often in industries that are growing quickly, such as technology or healthcare. Investors who use this approach believe that these companies will be able to generate higher profits in the future, which will lead to higher stock prices. One of the main advantages of growth investing is that it can potentially provide higher returns than the overall market. However, it is also riskier than other investment strategies, as these companies often have higher valuations and more volatile stock prices. Value Investing Value investing is an investment strategy that focuses on buying stocks of companies that are undervalued by the market. These companies may be in industries that are out of favour or have recently experienced challenges, but they have strong fundamentals and a history of profitability. Investors who use this approach believe that these companies are undervalued and that their true value will be recognized in the future, leading to higher stock prices. One of the main advantages of value investing is that it can potentially provide lower risk than growth investing. However, it may also provide lower returns in the long run, as these companies may not have the same growth potential as companies in the growth investing category. Comparing Growth and Value Investing Growth and value investing are two different approaches to stock investing, each with its own advantages and disadvantages. Growth investing can potentially provide higher returns but is riskier, while value investing can provide lower risk but potentially lower returns. An investor may choose one approach or a combination of both. A portfolio that contains a mix of growth and value stocks can provide a balance of potential returns and risk. Conclusion Both growth investing and value investing can be effective ways to invest in stocks. The key is to understand the potential risks and rewards of each approach and to choose the one that aligns with your investment goals and risk tolerance. Analyst Peter Mathers TradingLounge™
