As you can see, there is a potential for BTC to be forming a big (in black,) in what could possibly be the right shoulder of an inverted pattern (in green.) None of that is confirmed though. In terms of this potential , there is a jagged flagpole rise, with a perfectly parallel flag body. Rising from the lowest point of the head, you can see that there is a dotted black that is intersecting this potential flag. Price is being compressed between the top resistance of this potential flag, and the rising support from the head (dotted black .) So, if we see a breakdown below the rising black dotted , I think that could quickly negate the potential of a . However, if we get a breakout above the top side resistance of this potential , we could see a sharp rally to the neckline of the pattern (in blue.) Such a move would complete the pattern, and from there, we would be looking for a breakout above the neckline for confirmation.
As I've been mentioning for several days, the 300 (in orange) which is equal to the 50 on the , is now beginning to converge with the neckline of the pattern. So, if price is able to rally up there, and break out above that level, I believe that we will see a powerful surge toward the top of the (in pink,) which would put us somewhere in the low 5000s.
As price moves closer to the apex formed by the top of the flag and the rising support from the head, we will see a break in one direction or the other very soon. A break below that rising support will likely cause an initial surge to the downside. However, there is still technically a decent potential that BTC is forming an pattern right now. As I've said, we don't know for sure. So, I would wait to see a breakout before making any trades.
On the downside, if price fails to hold the 3000 level, we could see a powerful selloff in the market, potentially taking us down to 2000 or even 1100. That is definitely a short term possibility. However, I am still long-term on Bitcoin and crypto in general. I think if we do see a powerful breakdown below 3000, we could finally see the sharp capitulation that everyone has been waiting for.
As the market chops sideways, we are all mostly unsure of which direction it will break. When it does break, the neckline of the pattern will be a key area of interest on the upside. On the downside, the 3000 level will be a critical level for the market to hold.
Happy New Year Everyone!
