Those who were anticipating yet another free lunch, trading on news, hype, and some B2X are feeling the pains of their late entry into Bitcoin . We had been warning that this is not the time to be trading this market, but many felt the impulse and emotions and moreover the fear of missing out on a Free $1400 coin. Well there is no Free Lunch in trading! Now I did not foresee the cancellation by any means, my crystal ball is still in the shop getting repaired after it incorrectly was telling me 2 times we should be getting a correction in bitcoin . But the charts were definitely telling us something and whether this was a conspiracy or actually it just lost momentum as we stated in several times is for another blog, this is about the charts leading up, and the signals the market was giving us.
First of all let's go over the 3 coins we are looking at. BCH' in my opinion and many others, is the real McCoy. It adhere's to the original Satoshi white paper more than the coin trading under the BTC' symbol. Now there are several opinions and many have expressed these, but the charts are telling us something different. If BCH' was an insignificant fork, like many have commented on, then why 2 days prior to the announcement was there some heavy activity that counted for a 7% increase in a matter of an hour? What's even more ironic is one day before the announcement we saw more heavy buying of BCH'. Now if others are losing faith in BTC' and how it's being implemented, then it would be fair to say they would put money in the coin they thought adhered to Satoshi or is a better coin period! That is clearly BCH' as the market is mixed today but yet BCH' is up 30% from yesterday. But that wasn't the real clue there were issues with the fork. The real clue was LTC'!
Now LTC' a week ago was trading around it's $50-$55 average over the past month or so, but 24 hours before the announcement look at the move LTC' made! Now why was this significant? Well because LTC' implemented Segwit already. From a fundamental perspective, LTC' is faster, has lower fees, already implemented segwit (resolving the speed issue) and since it is a fork of BTC' would be the ideal Segwit play with BCH' being the ideal larger block play. See a pattern?
The market was clear on it's direction prior to the announcement, and had we been following the charts closely, we could have predicted something was just not right. What gives this even more credence is look at the gains LTC' and moreover BCH' have made since the announcement while BTC' is flat to slightly down. The market is speaking and the charts are telling us the story. This is a time to be investing in BCH' and LTC' and to be neutral on BTC'. Now I expect a pullback to happen in BTC' and this in fighting may just be the catalyst. TO BE CLEAR I'm not saying sell BTC' here, I'm simply stating that the charts predicted the cancellation prior to the actual announcement and we will likely see a pullback to test the channel. See the news didn't matter the charts did!!
Conspiracy or not, the charts almost always predict the movement before an event. Now I did not catch this prior, but we had been cautious on BTC' leading up to the event and had warned that anything that goes wrong with the fork would be good news for BCH' and LTC'. It appears this is the case, especially for BCH which is now over $800 and still climbing!! The market has spoken and the charts were providing us warning that something was wrong before the news even mattered!
Yeah, Thanks Lee!
Dang, Almost 100% profit, unbelievable.
Thanks for informing us and see what potential this coin has ;)
