So all this effort with posting charts and more charts on Bitcoin, is @Caseynotes invested in or trading Bitcoin?

Or is it merely a pastime hobby as he has nothing better to do and has far too much spare time on his side? 

I am trying to understand why spend all this effort and time posting on a specific asset if he has not either acquired Bitcoin physically, invested in Bitcoin or has/is trading Bitcoin? At the very least he is interested in doing any of these going forwards in the near future.

BTC double topped early this morning at around 8368 and has fallen hard down to support at 7850, currently trying to get back above 8000.

Above is the double top pattern I pointed out on Thursday morning, as there seems a lot of confusion as to how these should play out lets take a closer look. 

The pattern is triggered as price moves below the neckline on the last leg down and the target is the measured move down equal to the top to the neckline. Note that once the target is reach the pattern has played out and does not automatically mean price will continue falling, here we see price continue in the original direction after the pattern has completed. This DOES NOT signify a triple top pattern as others would have you believe as the neckline has been corrupted but rather signifies a more determined attempt to break resistance.

BTC's attempt to push lower yesterday was caught by support at 7460 and price has bounced since though that bounce now looks weak and there is hidden divergence showing on macd.

BTC didn't go on to test the flag top but went down to test the spike top instead. Now back within the flag range.

BTC in a big ramp up then a ramp back down again, supported at 8547 for the time being but a sound rejection of the attempt to move higher.

Saw that happening in real time. What a move. Would have caught a few people out and popped those trailing stops!

BTC currently ranging between 7560 and 7905 and has strong support just below at 7424. Looks like it's waiting for someone to give it a pump but which direction.

Coining it?

                  Dull it aint. Bitcoin that is. 10% swings, often in a day. Pumping up the price and deflating it like a giant balloon. Price doubled in 3 months. But then again it did lose 70% of it's value in 2017. Definitely not a one way bet.  Stability is not the watchword with blockchain currencies. Plus there is little or no rhyme or reason for the swings. Even if there are fewer and less frequent coins being created. Volatility is blockchain's friend.  $10 000 BTC, (again?) why not? A $4000 BTC again why not?  Glad it's not vegetables or ice cream though. Though it is in China (certain veg) atm. New currencies... so do you trust the ledger?

Currently stuck between 7886 and 8035 with key resistance a little higher at 8112. The smoothed RSI is still over 50 (green) but sloping down while the fast and slow RSI MAs have crossed down.

Always a joy to watch this when it's in a hyper state, it doesn't have much in the way of fundamental drivers rather sentimental and technical. Watching all through '17 and '18 the drivers were clear, the big push started on news big companies were starting trials of the potential for using bitcoin for payments, as the weeks went on more and more firms announced the same sending the chart parabolic. It wasn't til the end of '17 that the first trials started reporting back that bitcoin was slower and more expensive than the systems they were currently using, the chart turned, and as more and more firms announced the same and the abandonment of the trials price plummeted just as fast as it had risen.

Absolutely fascinating stuff, probably never see the like again 🙂

really flirting heavily with that 8k mark but last 5 sessions isn't holding.

turning point, or a little consolidation before the next leg up?

difficult to say with this one, it's stuck between 7500 and 8000 but the daily candles are growing so something's likely to pop soon.

Rumor on the straz is that there is another dump coming along. 70-80% fall in price in the next 3 months. What with volume stuffing going on across most if not all major exchanges. People are pumping ... to dump. Bitcoin is a massive contrarian indicator to the real economy and look what's happening with stocks, There has been a melt up over the last week in stocks and for good reason too!.

    • @Mercury, I see you have started to look at Coffee. Excellent. If you look at both Arabica and London (Robusta) then one could argue that we are witnessing oversold conditions especially if you look at longer term timeframes like the 'Monthly' and potentially the 'Weekly'.  For me it is about identifying potential breakouts. We may see that in the days and weeks to come but right now at this moment in time both on the 'daily' are trading below 20, 50, 100 and 200 DMA's so it is still bearish for me. It is one I am monitoring closely.  Commodities can offer some excellent trading opportunities and produce some of the strongest trends. I do not use or apply EWT but if you can use it to effectively increase your chances of success which leads to a greater chance of profiting then all the best. 👍
    • I was watching a TV series called "This Giant Beast That is the Global Economy " starring and narrated by Kal Penn, actor in "House" and speech writer with Obama.  It doesn't really cover any new concepts, although there were a few interesting observation in their, like what the most important commodity in the global economy is... (I wont spoil it for anyone who hasn't seen it yet and wants to but it was not that obvious and is blindingly obvious in retrospect). One thing that did pop out that I though was relevant for the forum was that the price of coffee is way too low for farmers to make money.  The logical conclusion of this is that they will farm something else and supply will be curtailed and then prices will go up, the basic perpetual cycle of supply and demand change.  This very basic fundamentals proposition motivated me to look at coffee on the charts to see if there was a building opportunity and I think there may be.  I will preface my analytical assessment with the statement that I know very little about the coffee industry other than how to select a great bean type as a consumer and make a great flat white. If I look at the long term charts (Quarterly/Monthly) I see that coffee trades in a large range from about 4000 to 34000 at the extremes (or $0.40 - $3.40 per US pound if you prefer).  This seems to represent the classic economics supply and demand curve in candle pricing form.  With the available data we can see a set of cycles between the market top and bottom zones that in the main run fairly directly between the zones.  At this point my thesis would be that if you catch the market right at either extreme you can hold until price reaches the opposite end of the range (net 30,000 points or so).  For best results you want a straight run rather than one with large reversals. If I apply EWT to the chart I see a series of 1-5s and A-B-C, although this is arguably less relevant than for markets that do not operate between such obvious ranges as the key is obviously to look at trading when the market enters, or more correctly, then exits the range extremes zones.  Still it is interesting to see that the run up in the mid 70s was a motive 1-5 that still marks the high point in price.  After that I see a series of massive A-B-Cs culminating in a slightly lower high extreme price in the late 1990s than that printed in the 70s (still went into the market top zone though). This high then produced a 1-5 down to the lowers price on the chart around 2002.  The next move up to 2011 could be either an A-B-C or a 1-5 and the current move looks decidedly like an A-B-C.  If the 2011 move is an A-B-C and the current move is also an A-B-C then I would expect the current move to be a larger wave B that ends higher than the previous low and spawns a massive rally that ends higher than the previous high and is a 1-5 that goes pretty much straight up.  Either way the current move is and A-B-C so will end higher than the previous low and as most of the bear moves end inside the market bottom zone I can reasonable conclude that this move will end somewhere between 4200 - 8000. Let's look at a shorter term charts to see if we can refine this.  I have 2 weekly charts attached, the first of which shows the bearish move down from 2011 and the second of which zooms in on the final wave C of C.  In the first chart I can see a clear A-B-C structure to all 3 of the larger A-B-C wave form of the bearish move.  This confirms an A-B-C and not a 1-5 and also confirms that the market is in a final wave C of C, which will spawn that Bull market.  I also have a nice upper resistance trend line and 2 possible lower lines (both may be valid) with a lot of good current (green circle) and prior pivot (purple circle) touches. If we look at the second weekly chart the wave C of the larger wave C (from the wave B pink) is cutting a clean 1-5 pattern and looks to have just completed the 3-4 part of this.  The rally to wave 4 (blue) is in a-b-c, which you would expect of a retrace so the next bearish phase should be a final wave 5 that will mark the end of the overall bear market.  I would be looking for price to hit one of the lower channel lines but inside or on the 8000 level ideally.  Note all previous moves that did not make it to the extremes zone were not wave Cs (As or Bs) and all the 5 did.  So the conclusion to this is that all wave Cs or motives 1-5s penetrate the extremes zones of the range but As and Bs tend not to.  Also 1-5 waves tend to run hard and fast and make more extreme price tops.  The current move looks line a Wave C that would spawn a 1-5. Finally looking at the daily chart the current bearish phase looks to have put in a 1-2 (green) of that final 1-5 I am looking for.  I will be tracking this for the 3-4-5 and other signals to see if I can spot the turn.  As and when price breaks out of the upper weekly trend line resistance I think a strong bull market will be in play that could be a motive 1-5 that makes it into the extreme market top zone.  In all of the bull turns through there has been a strong short term retrace so the best strategy might be to let the turn happen and spot the initial retrace turn.  In these agri type commodities getting in on such a range extremes turn has to be the way to play it.  I will be tracking this one with interest for a while but it will require some time still to mature I think. 
    • I last posts around 2-3 weeks ago on this thread and I have seen Litecoin go down towards the lower $70's. It is currently trading at $76-77 at the time of writing this post.  Litecoin's chart looks pretty ugly. It is currently trading below its 20, 50, 100 and 200 DMA's which is very bearish.  Only really Bitcoin (significantly) and Bitcoin Cash are trading above their 200 DMA's on the 'daily.  Litecoin will need some very bullish news or a big move from Altcoins / Bitcoin otherwise it could easily fall down into the 60's.  After the halving event, it seems, Litecoin has been heavily sold. This capital may now shift to Bitcoin. That is my suspicion and assumption and the price action will confirm this. I will be interested to see if the divergence between Bitcoin and Litecoin increases.
