Bitcoin showing defensive resilience

Recommended Posts

At the time of writing - 07:12 am - Bitcoin is showing strong defensive qualities and true resilience compared to other cryptocurrencies which are demonstrating sharp corrections which I am sure are healthy and needed before the next leg up. 


Bitcoin seems to be behaving like gold within the cryptocurrency universe. 


It is such a volatile and crazy market at the moment that by the time some read this post, Bitcoin, may have even declined more than other cryptos.

I take it you are referring to the Wyckoff Trading System? One assumes you are using some sort of algorithm? If you use it effectively to analyse patterns in waves and volume to help you identify any supply and demand imbalances. Having an 'edge' is extremely important if one wants to be profitable not only in the short term but in the long term too and continue not only to survive trading in the markets but be consistently profitable. This may help you obtain an 'edge' if used correctly and effectively. 


At the time of writing 8:00 pm Bitcoin is down around 4% where as other cryptos are down 10%, 12% and 16% showing that when there are sharp corrections in the crypto market then Bitcoin offers better resistance to the downside on such corrections. This assumption obviously needs to be tested going forwards but I am putting the theory out there for anyone to test should they wish to do so.

Very good observance you have excellent teaching and writing skills .


An edge is present before any trade is placed, the broker has an edge, the market has an edge because the market calls the first shots, even a trend trader does not have an edge.In fact there is a negative edge of high dealing costs on cryptos,negative market edge and finally humans are born with a negative edge mindset in trading. a lack of a mental edge Trading is a highly competitive mental sport with a negative mental edge.All technical,system, method,analysis etc are worth zero, without a mental edge.

    • Crude palm oil prices could hit $700/mt FOB Belawan in 2020: Golden-Agri https://www.spglobal.com/platts/en/market-insights/latest-news/agriculture/111419-crude-palm-oil-prices-could-hit-700-mt-fob-belawan-in-2020-golden-agri
    • Well Bitcoin broke $8k and is currently around the $7.5k price area. It is not looking good at all.  It seems my $6.3k - $6.6k price area which I think could be the bottom or this specific downward move looks more likely now. I mentioned this price area on Monday (a few posts above) and now I think unless there is some serious buying or spectacular news followed by some serious pumping and short covering then Bitcoin is heading towards this price zone. 
    • There are many different ways to trade and applying or adopting trend following principles is merely just one such way. Trading more frequently does not guarantee any more success but it can increase the chances of making more losses if you do not have a robust trading system that is based on a sound trading plan. Trend following does not have to involve regular or frequent trading. That is the beauty of it. You can merely wait until you identify a trend which you wish to trade. Of course they will not all be successful as the trend could reverse sharply against you, it could be a false trend (looks like a trend but not) or simply the volatility could stop you out.  Day trading really is for full time traders in my personal opinion unless you have an expensive automated system which has been tested rigorously or you are an exceptional trader which can consistently make profits on most days without gambling, hoping or relying on luck.  Trend following suits me based on the time I have available to trade. I accept it is not for everyone but I believe all trading includes an element of trend following. Just how much depends on your trading style and methodologies adopted.
