Bitcoin Breakout

Recommended Posts

Bitcoin is on a rip this morning in an attempt to break up out of the long term triangle pattern.

A quick smack down as well. Doesn't look like a pump and dump either where you would expect to see a sudden huge single candle then a steady controlled sell off as the pumpers exit exchanging contracts with the FOMO'ers.

This was a steady growing ramp up then sudden huge selling like someone took the opportunity to get out big.

15 min chart.

That was certainly short-lived. Which market(s) does IG use to set the price for BitCoin? The move here all the way up to 7340.80 was much higher than at say eToro which only got up to 6751.

There is also a large difference in BTC price between IG and Plus500. Historically they were $40 apart, from this morning it’s more like $400-500 apart. Anyone know why?

Seeing the usual wide range on the different exchanges,  the day high is between 6810 and 7788 for Bitfinex, GDAX and Kraken ...

So is the explanation that IG, eToro and Plus 500 use a different set of exchanges to determine the price? I've not noticed such a wide divergence before.

(Helps me to understand the SEC's reluctance to allow ETFs when even respected players have such a variance on price.)

    • 👀 ... PM announcement due at 4 pm.  
    • Lockdown until the flu virus (corona) is beaten for good. Victory at any cost. You know it makes sense!!!!!    The absolute state of these clowns ... Apparently, SAGE now saying that if we don’t have an immediate, month-long lockdown Christmas is off. The cost of such folly will mean millions of people won’t be able to afford Christmas anyway. The virus will still be waiting in early December. @allisonpearson   The answer is to lock SAGE up for a month and let the rest of us proceed sensibly with our lives, while backing medical professionals to improve treatment and care of the infected, reducing mortality. Lord Moylan @danielmgmoylan   Reminder that Covid-19 has a similar fatality rate as common flu and that the 5 year rolling average for deaths from flu type infections is around 30,000 a year, was before covid, during covid and will be after covid. It is typically the last battle of the old and sickly and has been since forever.
    • Glad to see your posts at the Indices thread. James16 and company at the Forex Factory had the great phrase “day trading off the daily charts”. That and trading the hourly ranges is what I have been doing recently.
