Bitcoin Drops Lower: Crucial Triangle is Susceptible after BTC Latest Move


Recommended Posts

BITCOIN (BTC) ANALYSIS

  • Bitcoin is attempting to break below the descending triangle in its latest move which opens the door to a more dire technical outlook
  • Key technical levels for bitcoin (BTC/USD)
 

BITCOIN DROPS AS EQUITY MARKETS ATTEMPT TO MOVE HIGHER

Bitcoin and the major US stock markets, particularly the S&P 500 and the Nasdaq 100, have tended to move in the same direction and are both seen as ‘risky’ assets. Both markets topped ahead of the global monetary tightening cycle and have moved considerably lower since the respective highs.

Despite briefly entering a technical bear market (dropping 20% from the high), the S&P 500 is on track to mark two days of gains and is up around 4.5% from the recent lows, bitcoin however, has witnessed price action consolidating around 28,800 and 30,500 zone.

The largest cryptocurrency by market cap was trading within a descending triangle which has come under threat today as we have seen an attempt to trade below the formation. This pattern, which is typically bearish, indicates that sellers are more aggressive than buyers as price continues to make lower highs, while the lows are generally contained until sellers muster enough force to overpower bulls.

The recent break below the underside of the triangle at 28,630 brings the recent spike low of 26,590 into focus. In the event of continued bearish momentum, things could get very ugly for bitcoin very fast.

If we are to see a move higher form here, the first test appears via the 31,500 level followed by 32,940.

The reason I say things can get very bad for bitcoin is due to the nature of the crypto market when momentum picks up. Throughout its short history bitcoin has surged by staggering amounts in short periods of time but has also tanked and halved its value, or worse, in next to no time. The most recent surge witnessed a 400% rise in just over a year and because of that there is little traction to be had if we are to see a massive drop in the crypto.

Zooming out on the daily chart you can see a bit of consolidation between 23,800 and 22,700 but after that, the next significant level appears as far as 19,891. The crypto market is still reeling from the Terra (LUNA) and the stablecoin’s recent de-pegging from the dollar.

    • Wheat Elliott Wave Analysis Function - Trend Mode - Trend Structure -Impulse wave Position - Wave A of (B) Direction - Wave A of (B) is still in play Details -  Wheat daily and H4 have been adjusted due to how fast and deep decline from 720’4 has emerged. The long-term forecast on the daily chart shows that the surge to 720’4 is part of the impulse wave from March 2022. We are now in wave (5) which is expected to emerge into a 3-wave structure. Price now appears to be in wave A after which it will correct upside for B before returning downside. Overview: Since late May, grain prices have been falling sharply, with Wheat shedding over 20% since May 28th, 2024. This decline is about to erase the gains made from mid-April to late May. The nearly one-month sell-off adds to the long-term decline from March 2022, when Wheat traded at 1364’4. Currently trading at 571’4, Wheat is likely to fall further toward 500 in the coming weeks.   Daily Chart Analysis: The decline from March 2022 is forming a bearish impulse wave structure in the primary degree. The 5th wave is completing a diagonal structure, which has been the most time-consuming among the actionary waves, lasting nearly 21 months. The price is currently in wave (5) of 5 (circled), which will likely evolve into a 3-wave structure targeting the 500 major psychological level.   H4 Chart Analysis: The H4 chart shows the sub-waves of wave (5), which is now close to completing its first leg - wave A of (5). A corrective bounce is expected to follow for wave B before the price turns downside for wave C of (5) toward 500, provided the 720’4 pivot is not breached. Wheat and other grains are overwhelmingly bearish and may continue in this direction for the next several weeks before major bullish corrections begin.   In conclusion, Wheat prices remain bearish with potential for further declines, targeting the 500 psychological level, contingent on the completion of the current corrective wave B and the subsequent wave C of (5).

    • TXN Elliott Wave Analysis Trading Lounge Daily Chart, Texas Instruments Inc., (TXN) Daily Chart TXN Elliott Wave Technical Analysis FUNCTION: Counter Trend MODE: Corrective STRUCTURE: Triangle POSITION: Wave {iv}. DIRECTION: Bottom in wave {iv}.   DETAILS: Looking for a triangle in wave {iv} of 3 as we have found resistance on TL2 at 200$.     TXN Elliott Wave Analysis Trading Lounge 4Hr Chart, Texas Instruments Inc., ( TXN) 4Hr Chart TXN Elliott Wave Technical Analysis FUNCTION: Counter Trend MODE: Corrective STRUCTURE: Triangle POSITION: Wave (e) of {iv}. DIRECTION: Bottom in (e).   DETAILS: Looking for wave (e) to be near completion to then resume higher and find support on top of 200$.   Welcome to our latest Elliott Wave analysis for Texas Instruments Inc. (TXN). This analysis provides an in-depth look at TXN's price movements using the Elliott Wave Theory, helping traders identify potential opportunities based on current trends and market structure. We will cover insights from both the daily and 4-hour charts to offer a comprehensive perspective on TXN's market behavior.   * TXN Elliott Wave Technical Analysis – Daily Chart* In our Elliott Wave analysis of Texas Instruments Inc. (TXN), we observe a counter-trend corrective pattern characterized by a triangle structure. TXN is currently positioned in wave {iv} of 3, suggesting a bottoming process in wave {iv}. The recent price action indicates that TXN has encountered resistance around the TL2 trendline at $200. This resistance could imply the formation of a triangle in wave {iv}, setting the stage for a potential resumption of the upward trend once the triangle completes. Traders should monitor the $200 level for signs of a breakout or further consolidation within the triangle.   *TXN Elliott Wave Technical Analysis – 4Hr Chart* On the 4-hour chart, TXN is following a counter-trend corrective mode within a triangle structure, specifically in wave (e) of {iv}. The current analysis suggests that wave (e) is nearing completion, which could signal the end of the triangle and the beginning of a move higher. The completion of wave (e) should ideally find support above the $200 level, aligning with the daily chart's indication of a possible upward resumption post-triangle. Traders should watch for the termination of wave (e) and the subsequent price action to confirm a bullish continuation.   Technical Analyst : Alessio Barretta Source : Tradinglounge.com get trial here!
