52 Week Price Analysis for Bitcoin

Recommended Posts

Having run the numbers with my trading algorithm I have developed with the IG Index API, I thought that I might offer some insight. As always this is my own thoughts, ideas and opinions. It might help some of the newer investors. 

Let me explain this graph. Whilst I believe I hold some authority around various parts of the internet with regards to this as I have invested alot of time and effort into this system most of the code is released for free, let me attempt to explain. This graph is produced from my own code/trading algo which I am happy to discuss if you so wish. I can do analysis on other stocks, pairs whatever if there is demand for it. 

  • The blue dashed line's are the high and low prices for each week, In this case over the last 52 weeks. The green dots are the "Peak Detection Algorithm", As you can see from the graph it is good at predicting when the price will turn around. Each dot representing a turn around in price. 
  • The grey area is the VWAP, The Volume Weighted Average Price. 
  • The red dashed line is what the price is currently sat at (mid price), As you can also see it is sitting right on a green dot, This is a signal to say that the price is about to turn around. BUT beware. There are ALOT more peaks beneath the VWAP price (Count them) which indicates there is some serious downward pressure there, It's failed to get off the ground. Not many buyers!.
  • I have various rules attached to how this would be traded   So my analysis for the next week is such that there will be a quite a down-tick in price (see the last green dot, It's just started), With significant price pressure downwards. Not to mention 4000 been a "Psychological Price barrier" 

My time is limited but if you wish I can produce graphs based on lower-time frames, Hour's etc to show the turn around points to plan your trades accordingly.

Thanks for this @TheGuru12, very interesting and clearly a lot of work has gone into it so thanks for the share. I suspect many here would be very interested in something as you suggest on a lower time frame (hourly for example) that they could follow especially as bitcoin is very problematic to read short term.

Did just note before checking the forum that bitcoin popped to the upside just in this last hour but who knows how long that will last with social media organised pump and dumps .

Aye, Can do that. To be fair I mainly do stocks. I run a Discord group and Reddit thread to discuss trading/coding with the IG Index API.

Not sure why you are trying to sabotage this thread @TrendFollower, it is titled 'bitcoin' because it is about bitcoin, what is offered is a sharing of experimental algorithmic analysis of bitcoin price action and many will be interested to see how it goes.

Why on earth you are waving red flags about is a complete mystery, no one is trying to sell you anything.

Agree.

however @TheGuru12 - it would be really interesting to see some calls going forwards in real time. Unsure if you have alerts set up (or have the time to post here continually) but would be interesting to see your system call a top / bottom in real time and follow the bitcoin trade. 'Peak detection Algo' sounds cool as well!

thank y ou for sharing

Oh I see, I thought it was just being rubbished for the sake of it. It might be worth reading the OP again because the green dots are the calls. The green dots on the upper line are sell calls while the green dots on the lower line are buy calls. It was somewhat unfortunate that after days of sideways movement in the very hour of posting and the graph showing a short call on the weekly time frame bitcoin price suddenly pumped up, which was why I suggested adding the shorter time frame. The shorter time frame graph posted last night was rushed and not so clear but it actually looks quite good when compared to today's chart. Very interesting.

I am no stranger to criticism online but alas I do not let it deter me, I have some loyal followers and some interesting cool people behind me. I put out what I think. People are free to ignore it. People get pissy when there is money at steak.

    • Read an interesting article on Yahoo finance which showed the majority of gains in the Nasdaq is down to the big 6 tech firms and without them there would have been no gain in the Nasdaq since 2016 and the majority of movement is down to the price of 6 companies. It would appear, in the search for dividend and profit everyone has opted to buy Amazon, Facebook, Apple, Alphabet, Microsoft and Netflix, as a herd reaction. No one has stopped to question whether they are over-bought at all, or if they may have questioned that premise, the thought would have been quickly cast asunder in the wake of evidence to the contrary (prices of the big 6 only bulldozing up). This may have lead to a false narrative, where we may consider everything is rosy in the garden of equities and everything  will all be alright soon, as long as the big 6 keep on growing, even if much other evidence suggests the contrary. Which it is. From employment to housing arrears, from relationships with allies and perceived foes to actual communal transmission of Covid 19. From stratospheric  Fed and govt debt to trade imbalance, from irrational exuberance to actually facing reality now. Instead of relentless optimism, relentless realism.  It would appear we are in for another week of exuberance. The sun is shining, people are out enjoying themselves and one could be forgiven for thinking the crisis is over and we can all go back to doing exactly what we were doing before this inconvenience struck. Reassessment can be inconvenient too. No one likes to be wrong, (though we often are). Least of all the Potus, who's principle motivation may not be the well being and good health of his people, more the well being of the economy, more specifically the price of equity. He encourages more exuberance even when evidence may suggest otherwise.  It is earnings season for equities, the reports, many of  which would make grim reading in more sober times, will be ignored for even the merest hint that the future will be brighter or it wont get any worse, from a reaction to Remdesivir (which appears to improve more than it harms, improves 9 harms 3...a litigation lawyers dream) to any glimmer of positive data.  Then one looks at the price of Tesla and realise the equity markets really have gone potty. Look at Tesla's numbers and its price makes no sense at all. Herd irrational exuberance in a nutshell. VW and Toyota p/e  far less than 10, now look at Tesla and you know its share price is on steroids and anything else the doctor will prescribe.  I recently drove to the New Forest to visit a good friend. It is normally a patience sapping experience, but left on Friday 7 pm and arrived at 9;10 pm in record breaking totally unbelievable 2 hours 10 minutes. In July. Normally, it takes at least 3 hours. Roads are still quiet. Which leads me to question again the premise of a "V" shaped recovery  and consider whether those that suggested a "V" shaped recovery actually have very poor hand writing and their version of a V more closely resembles a flattish tick or even a very sloppy W. I digress, the point being there has to come a time when the US has to take off its rose tinted glasses and see the reality of Now for what it is, rather than wishing it all away for a brighter tomorrow. Might not happen this week as equities push higher but you can't escape it forever. Can you?
