Well the last 12 hours or so have seen bitcoin dance around the 15k mark, after a dramatic week peaking at 17k. However it doesnt quite look like a correction is setting in yet....or is it? What do my fellow traders feel bitcoin will do next week...based on sentiment, technical analysis or whatever other force guides you.

How much of Bitcoin trading is already on margin is what I would like to know. I should think the futures market will definitely be adding to it in the coming weeks and months.

 

Enjoy!

I agree. I think far more people and institutions, crucially, are sitting up and taking notice of btc if hadnt done so before. I do believe it will reach crazy heights within months. Its a good time, albeit a bit late, to gain exposure to a btc tracker, in my opinion, for the long term potential. Perhaps wait for a bit of a crash first. Its now conceivable that btc will reach 50k in coming years as the big investors muscle in.

Interesting that the recent correction turned bang on a Fib level which could indicate some big players are using Fibonnacci on this asset, or may just be total coincidence. Worth bearing in mind for the future though.

 

The chart currently is coiling and gives no clues as to which direction it will pop. The correction doesn't look like a simple profit taking pullback but more like a serious attempt at a major reversal that stalled.

 

Remember too that this is not bitcoin on it's own but matched to the USD which just put in a couple of strong days Wed and Thur then a pin/doji bar off resistance on Friday. If the dollar drops you could expect a retest of the highs but if the dollar breaks up through resistance it may be worth taking a closer look at some of those lower Fib levels.

I've been doing some research. It's been a boring week for me as I've have had some really massive technical problems to sort out with my computer hardware and software and which is why I've been so much unusually distracted by Bitcoin - my speciality being the Nikkei 225 !!!!

 

With the futures market about to open I thought to sound out some inside opinion.

 

I googled the words "bitcoin futures precedent" and started reading some interesting results about the future of the Bitcoin market and the likely effect and performance of the futures market in the initial stages. Good insider insight as well on the many questions and comments being posted on the IG website !!!

It is really hard to predict e.g. it's now  roughly 33 mins past the hour and on my 4hr chart of Bitcoin USD looking at my Boll 20 & 3.00 it's just dropped below the centre line a sell signal ( hasn't done that for quite a long time) and could be heading down to the lower Boll line  but who is to know?

 

Enjoy!!!

Looking at my Boll 20 & 3.00 for Ether since yesterdays low Ether broke through the centre line a buy signal whereas Bitocoin went down. In the last 4hr Ether hit top Boll band which appears to have triggered a Bitcoin sell-off but who is to know for sure if it's going to be a big one?

 

Enjoy !!!

Looking at my 4hr Boll 20 3.00 for Bitcoin USD if it closes above the middle line we're looking upwards again - will depend how that line holds !!! But there has been nothing like this happening on the 4hr chart since beginning of the month - Exciting.

Very interesting insights shared here folks....thanks. how are the Boll bands looking now? Interesting comments from re fib lines. I need to get up to scratch with analysing trends/technicals via charts. Its not an area im familiar with. Does IG offer any webinars/info on this kind of stuff?

wise words re getting in the action around the middle and avoiding the extremities. I guess thats where i go wrong at times. The question for me is always how do i know if the current price is likely to the middle of a big rise/fall or if it has reached its end point....i guess this where looking more closely at trends/charts over a wider timespan comes in useful.

There is loads of information on the IG website the problem is many people do not have the time to go through it all. But I'm sure James can help direct you. Personally I'm one who has never had that time. I watched the webinar on crypto-currencies for an hour and it was fun. Interesting also to see how the new platform can be used effectively. I always think I can fit more onto the screen with the older one, or, that I have more control. I may now try having another look at the new platform.

So after my last post on BTCUSD in this thread where price tagged the 38.2 fib level price did drop down again to tag the 50% fib level this time before flying back up and now hesitating at the highs. To get a bounce off 2 fib levels is more than just a coincidence. May be hesitating now awaiting conformation on dollar direction.

Thanks for that insight. Looks like a very technical start. It will be interesting to see if we get a wave pattern like whether we are currently on a developing wave three or five?

Well well. A disappointing week for btc. What next? Is there still scope for a xmas rally for btc? Its hovering in a narrow range which is pretty unexciting and unprofitable when you cant go long!!

I shouldn't be doing these pics. ahead of time. One should have time to get in and still make some money Bitcoin (USD) (DFB) #.pngonce the price or target has crossed the trajectory that's if you do you homework/research right. But since I did the 1hr for Ether I thought I may as well do the 1hr for Bitcoin.

Uplifted during the Asian session but stalled again at 17483 which has clearly become an important level to beat. Upside momentum continues to decline while volume remains high, There is a lot of shorting here so if the level breaks to the upside there may be a large spike as the shorts bail.

    • S&P 500, Nasdaq 100 and Dow rally ahead of US non-farm payrolls Outlook on S&P 500, Nasdaq 100 and Dow ahead of Friday’s US non-farm payrolls. Source: Bloomberg      Axel Rudolph FSTA | Senior Financial Analyst, London | Publication date: Friday 03 February 2023  S&P 500 rallies to critical technical resistance post Fed rate hike The S&P 500 accelerated to the upside and on Thursday rallied above its September and December highs at 4,139 to 4,155 - which represent key resistance – but then slid back and closed marginally above this area as Apple sales dropped by 5% in their largest quarterly decline since 2016. If the S&P 500 were to have another daily close above 4,155 this Friday and by definition then a weekly close, especially after the US non-farm payroll data, the August peak at 4,325 would be next in line. En route lies the late August high at 4,215. Minor support below 4,139 can be found between the early December and January highs at 4,101 to 4,094, below which the breached one-year downtrend line can now be seen at 4,037. While Tuesday’s low at 3,994 isn’t being slipped through, the 2023 uptrend remains intact. Source: ProRealTime Nasdaq 100 rallies despite gloomy outlook by US tech giants In case of the Nasdaq 100, a bottom has already been confirmed by Wednesday’s close above the November and December highs at 12,084 to 12,258, with the September peak at 12,902 nearly having been reached before disappointing results by tech giants such as Apple, Amazon and Alphabet drove the index lower. With all three companies offering a gloomy outlook in their quarterly results, a further retracement lower may be seen on Friday. Having said that, the technical bullish view will remain valid as long as investors continue to expect that the Federal Reserve’s (Fed) tightening cycle may be nearing its peak and while Tuesday’s low at 11,817 isn’t being slipped through or a clear technical bearish reversal signal is being given by the index. A rise above the 12,902 September high would put the August peak at 13,722 on the map. Source: ProRealTime Dow continues to be this year’s US underperformer Only the Dow Jones Industrial Average is underperforming and is finding it difficult to advance, having on Wednesday failed around its January high. The index continues to range trade within its 34,941 to 32,474 December extremes but does remain short-term bullish while this week’s low and the October-to-February uptrend line at 33,512 to 33,490 underpin on a daily chart closing basis. Having said that, a rise and daily chart close above the January and February highs at 34,346 to 34,348 needs to be seen, for the December peak at 34,941 to be back in the frame. Failure at this week’s low at 33,490 would have short-term negative implications. Source: ProRealTime
    • Early Morning Call: Nasdaq and S&P 500 enter bull market The Nasdaq and S&P 500 entered bull market yesterday as investors now consider rates to be close to peak levels.  Jeremy Naylor | Writer, London | Publication date: Friday 03 February 2023  Equity market overview APAC equity markets were mixed overnight. Hong Kong and China mainland indices were the underperformers, despite positive data. Caixin services PMI climbed back up in expansion territory, after four months below the 50 mark. The index rose to 52.9 in January, from 48 in December. European indices opened higher this Friday, remaining on their upward trend after the Bank of England (BoE) and European Central Bank (ECB) decided on interest rates. As expected, both central banks raised rates by 50 basis points yesterday. The BoE's main interest rate is now at 4% and the ECB's main refinancing rate stands at 3%. And as expected, messages from the respective governors were different. BoE governor, Andrew Bailey, said the tightening in pace since the end of 2021 is likely to have an increasing impact on the economy. This should help bring inflation to around 4% in 2023. Previously the BoE's economic projection showed inflation at around 5% this year. "Since the November monetary policy report we've seen the first signs that inflation has turned the corner," said Bailey in his comment following the decision, but added that "it's too soon to declare victory just yet, inflationary pressures are still there." As for the ECB, it explicitly signalled at least one hike of the same size at its next meeting in March. "... the Governing Council intends to raise interest rates by another 50 basis points at its next monetary policy meeting in March and it will then evaluate the subsequent path of its monetary policy," the ECB said. And Christine Lagarde insisted at the press conference: "We know that we have ground to cover, we know that we are not done". In the US, Nasdaq and S&P 500 entered bull market yesterday as investors now consider that rates may be close to peak levels. The US dollar recouped Wednesday's losses sending gold back down to the low $1,900. Yet, the dollar basket could still record a fourth straight weekly loss. It now all rests on January’s non-farm payrolls data. Economists anticipate 185,000 job creations, following 223,000 in December. The unemployment rate should rise one notch to 3.6%, and average hourly earnings 0.3% month-on-month (MoM) and 4.3% year-on-year (YoY). A bit later at 3pm, ISM services PMI for the month of January is expected to rise to 50.4, after 49.6 in December. Earnings Apple pared earlier gains last night after the company's fiscal first quarter (Q1) earnings. The group posted earnings of $1.88 per share, a 10.9% drop compared to the same quarter last year. Analysts had expected $1.94. Revenue fell by 5.5% to $117.15 billion, the first year-over-year sales decline since 2019. $121.88Bln was expected. In detail, iPhone and Mac revenue came in short of estimates, down 8.2% and 28.6% respectively. iPad revenue rose 29.7%, above forecasts. Apple CEO Tim Cook said three factors impacted the results: a strong dollar, production issues in China affecting the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max, and the overall macroeconomic environment. Amazon shares were quite jittery in extended trading last night. The internet giant missed earnings estimates, posting earnings per share (EPS) of three cents, compared to 17 cents forecast by analysts. Revenue was better than expected: $149.2bn versus estimates of $145.8bn. Investors were taken aback by the group’s guidance. Amazon said its operating profit could fall to zero in the current quarter as savings from layoffs do not make up for the financial impact of consumers and cloud customers clamping down on spending. Amazon forecast it would earn between $0 and $4 billion in operating income this quarter, compared with the $4.04 billion that analysts were expecting. Additionally, the company believes sales growth in its long-lucrative cloud business will slow for the next few quarters. In Q4, Amazon Web Services sales reached $21.3bn, versus $21.76bn expected. Alphabet missed on both top and bottom lines for its Q4. Google's parent company posted earnings of $1.05 per share, on revenue of $76.05bn. Analysts anticipated EPS of $1.18 and $76.53bn in revenue. Alphabet suffered from a pullback in advertising revenue. Advertisers have cut their budgets as rising inflation and interest rates fuelled concern over consumer spending. The company said it would take a charge of between $1.9 billion and $2.3 billion, mostly in the first quarter of 2023, related to the layoffs of 12,000 employees it announced in January. Ford Motor reported lower than expected earnings. Ford posted earnings of 51 cents, compared to analysts' expectations of 62 cents. Revenue came broadly in line with expectations, at $41.8bn. Ford predicted a difficult year ahead, blaming chip shortages and other supply chain issues, production "instabilities" that raised costs, along with lower-than-expected volumes. In 2022, the company recorded an adjusted profit of $10.4bn, short of Ford's own forecast of $11.5bn. Ford expects 2023 adjusted pretax earnings of $9 billion to $11 billion.   This is here for you to catch up but if you have any ideas on markets or events you want us to relay to the TV team we’re more than happy to.
