That's one way of looking at the bitcoin cycle. Note the smart money/ investors/ public demarcation.

The slide to retest 6000 looks inevitable but what then? Consolidation and a retest of 9274 or a push through drop to retest 5000.

I am long both Bitcoin and Ether for the short term, from a purely technical perspective. For both, support appears to be much nearer than resistance.

You are probably right. What I expect in the next few days is a mere bounce back to the region of 7500 for the bitcoin and something similar to 420-450 for the Ether.

Falling wedge with a minor h&s pattern signaled a possible reversal for me.

 

Discloser closed the short.

 Bitcoin,   after failing to reach the "Red Zone",   Price continues to push up.  The move through the "Blue zone" shows strength     Capture b1.PNGCapture b2.PNG

Did you bid at all or miss because it didn’t get to that red zone? :( bad luck if you didn’t get a fill elle as it’s been a pretty solid reversal :(

 the daily chart showing a fairly substantial rejection at around 9500 with a reversal candle yesterday, be interesting to see if it can get any follow through.

Looking to the future can only be about possibilities and maybe probabilities but if playing a range or an asymmetric range why wait for the move to be half over. Already a bit late for that play but useful to know the triangle is significant.

 

There is also the possibility of Ron William's view that if the triangle bottom breaks then the target is 3000. (Taken from the vid linked in the latest post on TA and market cycles in the TA tread).

I don’t get it. So BTC is on the support line in black, well below the 200 day MA, below the mean, has a divergence of 30...

 

Don’t all these indicate a move UP? Why the 3k target?

Ah, you need to watch the whole video (only 20 min) as he uses this chart to demonstrate how to put all the component parts of TA and market cycles he discusses together for the big picture.

 

So IF support breaks, price is below the 200 day MA, there would also be a break of the first standard deviation and the market cycle shows that within the bearish move since the start of the year there are distinct bearish/bullish phases. From the chart the bearish phases are roughly twice as long as the bullish and the current bearish phase looks like it has some way to go.

Actualy just wanted that video again. It’s really good. I’ve never really been one for TA as a whole and just running the whole strategy on it, more use as a potential entry point and where to slightly trim positions going into and out of a trade.

 

But this seems different. I like the explanation about the 20 / 50 / 200 MA and never really thought about it in the way of it representing 4 weeks worth of trading days, a quarter, almost a years worth (there are about 220 trading days in a year right?).

 

I think this is what I need more of to get behind TA. The WHY each indicator should work, rather than the HOW to use. How must be intuitive once people know the why…

 

Right?

I think so too which is why I post links to articles that explain how different indicators work, knowing that gives a better understanding of their possibilities and limitations. Every indicator has it's limitations so each needs to be applied appropriately.

 

In the beginning most assume an indicator will just generate signals but that is exactly what they can't do. An indicator can shine a light on a particular aspect of a market and help make an informed decision as to future probabilities.

Most are based on OHLC of a number of time period bars or candles, the candles are the foot prints on the chart of the market movers so only candles generate signals.

 

The best way for us to make money is to spot a move by the market movers early on and get in quick, TA and indicators are there to give forewarning and indicate where to look for that signal.

    • Hi, no sb and cfd are the same but for taxation category purposes, the underlying market for both is the cfd market which the IG market tracks. If it was as you say it would beg the question who were you betting against? IG? IG are adamant they don't take the other side of client's bets and if they did and the regulator was to find out IG's long spell as a leading broker could be at an end. So their position is that they match trades in house and any over flow is hedged, so shorts may well turn out to be unborrowable.  
    • If it's your first foray into crypto, just buy bitcoin. Set aside an amount each month you can afford and buy bitcoin. Don't even bother looking at the price. DCA each month, stick it on a Trezor and forget it. Hopefully in a few years you'll have enough to retire. Everyone should have at least 5% of btc in their portfolio imho. Alternatively, if you're looking to set up a crypto "sh1tcoin" portfolio be prepared to dive in, deep, into research. Bitcoin, Ethereum, Cardano, Tezos, Monero etc and these don't even touch on DeFi, Security Tokens, Lending, Staking etc. Have something like this: 40-60% Bitcoin (low risk - for crypto anyway) 30% Ethereum, Cardano, Tezos etc (Large Cap alt coins with medium risk) 15% Higher risk alt coins but higher reward (this is where your research comes in to find legit projects) 5% Small Cap coins, High leverage, full degenerate margin trading. Huge reward if you win but highly risky and if you lose all that 5% who cares? Your Bitcoin holdings should make up for the loss. But if it goes 10x then holy momma. p.s IMHO stay away from the likes of Ripple, Tron and Bitcoin SV.
