A closer look in, especially at the 4 hour bars, would suggest the bears are currently firmly in control and looking for a retest of  9148. The Asian market has been pushing down just recently so wait and see.

Yes, they are certainly having a go, though with the US session closing in just over an hour they have not made much of an impression and the last 4 hour bar was well contained. The Austral-Asian traders are about to enter the market so it will be interesting to see which way they intend to push it having just seen the US bulls fail.

A lot of people were looking at the 61.8% retrace             Capture xtb.PNG

Quite right, the 61.8% Fib reversal shows yet again how often Fib is being used by bitcoin traders.

Hi ,  yes I know you were drawing attention to Fib on a larger time frame. Just reiterating Fibs use on this asset on multiple time frames.

I use Bollinger Bands a lot in my trading & find the  150 EMA as a good support / resistance                              Capture comments.PNG

at time of writing looks like bitcoin can still swing either way. in my opinion $9200 is a major support/resistance for a bullish trend to occur and would not go long yet.

I said my target short was the red zone, and that proved to be correct, in fact it bounced right of the lower trend line I had Previously set out in my charts. I have said I use the 150 EMA as support / resistance - it is currently acting as resistance. My view now is I ;m done with it, it may go either way now,  but 10k looks like major resistance  - try watching this   -

Agreed, the 9255 zone is a big level with confluence of the 61.8 Fib level and about to meet the 100ma but needs to get through resistance level 8595 first (prior highs).

    • My interpretation (FWIW) is that a small number of winning clients get the money, and IG 'only' keeps the spreads. But if 70 - 80% of clients are long on a market (say), and they turn out to be right (copper, recently) then I don't see how IG could stop from losing money unless it put some kind of real trade on or fund the losses from money made elsewhere (in an underlying market where most clients were wrong)
    • Interesting conversation about HOW IG operate. I have to agree with Larry trading here. IG always say they do not take the other side of the bet. BUT the fact is when you trade with them you are absolutely not in the real market, your money stays with 'Bank of IG' - so far as I am concerned if you lose they win and vice-versa. As Larry said you are placing a trade or a bet against the data feed that IG supply - that's it. There is no one on 'the other side' of your trade. The only time IG put it out to the real market is if their risk model requires that, i.e. everyone is taking one side, short or long. Again as Larry states we are NOT in the 'real market' we do not provide liquidity ! WHY should IG care about matching another client to the 'other side' of your retail trade ? They KNOW all retail traders lose anyway. If I place a 'long' trade on the DAX and lose when spread-betting, where is that loss going, WHERE EXACTLY ? It goes to IG, are you (Caseynotes) saying it goes to the other IG client taking an opposing trade, i.e. someone that went 'short' ? Bearing in mind 80% of retail traders at IG lose WHERE are all those losses going ? ANSWER: TO BANK OF IG.  CaseyNotes says ' IG matches buyers to sellers' that's a nice 'theory' ...again all the money stays with IG as we, the spread bettors, are NOT in any real market at all. You mention CFD's above and how they correlate with SB but again CFDs are not the real market they (brokers) just copy (via data-feed) the cash and futures market. As you correctly say CFDs are taxable for the rest of Europe to trade with.  I have not got a problem - like LarryBoy - about how IG operate, but as far as I am concerned Larry is right, all the trades when SB'ing stay with IG ONLY inc. all the trades / bets placed and monies stay with them. If you loose they win. End of. You can call that 'taking the other side of your trade' ... I personally do not, as it kind of implies that they are 'cheating' their Clients which they are not. Again they do not need to: ALL retail traders lose (80 - 90%).
