Bitcoin (BTC/USD) Technical Outlook is Bullish (For Now)

Recommended Posts


  • Trading below 2017 peak, but held on a weekly basis
  • A risk trends look to stabilize cryptos should see a recovery
  • Resistance near 30k will likely be difficult to overcome

I’ve been extremely bearish on cryptocurrencies for some time now, and continue to be so looking out over the long-term. But this doesn’t mean they won’t rally from time to time as nothing trends in a straight line.

Last week, BTC/USD traded below one of the big downside targets – the 2017 high at 19666 – but recovered to close the week above the level. This is considered a successful hold of that high even if it did temporarily dip below.

Looking to where BTC could go, if risk trends can continue to firm up, and that looks like it will be the case, then we could see a snapback to around the 30k level. This was a major area of support for quite some time, and given there isn’t anything between here and there it looks possible we see it.

There is a weekly low at 25401 to watch as the first level, then that is followed by 28600 up to just over 30k. Should we rise towards that 30k area I will be watching for signs of old support becoming new resistance and a capper on the advance before another major leg lower.

Should we see last week’s low at 17592 get taken out without a quick recovery, then look for Bitcoin to keep sinking with the next support level arriving at 2019 high at 13880. Eventually I’m looking for BTC to fall to 3-5k, but not any time real soon. For now, there will be solid levels to use for trading at higher levels.

    • It is better to be careful in this space. Didn't Bybit leave the UK market recently due to regulatory reasons?
    • Thanks for sharing your thoughts. Truly, I have not seen Bitget in any bad news. They must be doing something different.
    • Meta practically regains all of last year’s losses amid improved earnings. Source: Bloomebrg   Shares Meta Platforms Stock Price Candlestick Investment  Chris Beauchamp | Chief Market Analyst, London | Publication date: Thursday 30 November 2023 16:14 Meta stock price claws back 2022’s losses 2023 has been almost a complete reversal of 2022’s trends for social media giant Meta. Having clawed back most of 2022’s losses, supported by improved earnings and rebounding risk appetite, new record highs now seem a distinct possibility. Meta's stock price has shown resilience by recovering most of the decline it experienced in 2022. This is a positive sign for investors who have faith in the company's ability to adapt and thrive in the ever-changing digital landscape. One of the key factors contributing to Meta's success is its focus on efficiency. By implementing measures such as reducing its workforce and restructuring teams, the company has been able to streamline its operations and achieve impressive results. For instance, Meta reported $32 billion in sales for the second quarter (Q2) of 2023, which is a testament to its commitment to maximizing productivity. Furthermore, Meta's investments in augmented and virtual reality technologies, as well as artificial intelligence, have positioned the company for a promising future. These technologies have the potential to revolutionize various industries and offer new avenues for growth and innovation. By staying at the forefront of these developments, Meta has established a strong narrative for its future business prospects. However, it is important to acknowledge the potential risks that Meta faces. A slowdown in user growth could pose challenges for the company, as it heavily relies on user engagement and advertising revenue. Additionally, the possibility of a global recession could impact Meta's performance, although such an event seems unlikely in the near future. From a valuation perspective, Meta's current trading multiple of 29 times earnings indicates that the stock is no longer cheap. Nevertheless, there is still potential for further upside, given the company's strong growth prospects and ongoing investments in transformative technologies. Analyst ratings for Meta Refinitiv data shows a consensus analyst rating of ‘buy’ for Meta – 18 strong buy, 34 buy, 5 hold and 2 sell - with the mean of estimates suggesting a long-term price target of $372.40 for the share, roughly 12% higher than its current price (as of 30 November 2023). Source: Refinitiv Technical outlook on the Meta share price Meta share price, which has risen 166% year-to-date, even though it remains on its upward trajectory, is beginning to lose upside momentum on the weekly chart. Meta Weekly Candlestick Chart Source: TradingView After four weeks of straight gains and an over 20% rise in the Meta share price to levels last traded in January 2022, the stock is beginning to keel over. Since last week’s high at $342.92 has been accompanied by negative divergence on the weekly Relative Strength Index (RSI), a short-term corrective move lower is likely to soon be witnessed. While the August-to-October lows $279.40 to $274.38 hold on a weekly chart closing basis, the medium-term uptrend will technically remain valid, though. Nonetheless, Wednesday’s ‘Bearish Engulfing’ pattern on the daily candlestick chart does indicate that at least an interim top is likely to be formed. This short-term bearish scenario is being reinforced by the negative divergence which can also be seen on the daily chart. Meta Daily Candlestick Chart Source: TradingView The July peak at $326.20 is thus expected to be revisited and perhaps also the $312.87 mid-September high. The area around it may represent a good medium-term reward-to-risk trading setup for those wishing to buy Meta shares with a stop-loss below the $274.38 August trough. A rise and daily chart close above last week’s high at $342.92 would put the November 2021 peak at $353.83 on the map.     This information has been prepared by IG, a trading name of IG Markets Limited.
