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.

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.

    • The empirical evidence coming out of Asian countries in February matched the epidemiologists predictions (deaths around 0.1%, similar to common flu, Japan and South Korea - no lockdown). The govt decided to completely ignore this real evidence and instead go with Ferguson and his magical mystery models that predicted deaths in the millions which of course proved to be totally inaccurate. By the way Ferguson did exactly the same thing over Bird Flu years before, got it completely wrong. The epidemiologists also claimed that lockdown would not beat the virus, they were proved correct in this too. Just seen this, must be very recent;   BBC Newsnight  @BBCNewsnight “It is quite inexplicable why herd immunity has become a toxic phrase.” Theoretical Epidemiologist Prof @SunetraGupta says there “needs to be a fundamental change in how we approach dealing with” the coronavirus crisis     
    • ok, let's say that we all agree on the fact that we had many corona-viruses before and this one is just another one to add to the list. We can't escape it and sooner or later will catch me, I can agree with all of that, a mask is not an astronaut helmet so I can't protect myself from it. What is the actual point of forcing people into a quarantine? We say that governments do not want bad press or be entitled to many deaths, which are actually the same deaths every year.  Are they not able to explain that instead of simply telling us to stay at home? If I am being played, what is the actual end point? Why would governments all over the world play people on the subject? I find really hard to believe that this is all part of a massive hoax.  I don't see the benefit of forcing quarantines just for the sake of making people to follow rules. Is it not easier to think that the information we've got is so minimal that we can't be sure that this virus is going to wipe out people suddenly from the face of earth? Like, "we have no clue of what is going on, you better stay at home, because is the only advise I can give you" How about to listen to professionals that warn us daily? Like Dr Fauci https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/jul/14/fauci-covid-19-risks-coronavirus-trump-white-house Is not better to do what they say instead of believing that this is all part of a massive conspiracy against people? I don't think governments are playing people around, it is more that they don't have a clue of what we have to do to fix it, pretty much like in other pandemic. And the only message they can give us is "stay at home and let's hope that you  don't die"
