BTCUSD: Bearish Momentum But Support Zone Still In Play.

BITFINEX:BTCUSD   Bitcoin / U.S. Dollar
BTCUSD update: Price has taken out the previous spinning top low which is a bearish sign. Even though this is the case, the 6K and 5956 reversal zone supports are still in play. If this move fails to make a new low, this market will still be in position for a sharp squeeze.

5755 is the low that needs to be taken out in order to prove bearish momentum is still in full effect. Like I wrote previously, bottoming is a process, and it is far from precise.

At S.C., our swing trade was stopped out at 5980. Stops are not pleasant, but they protect accounts from being wiped out by hope mode. That is when you stay in the trade, hoping it comes back.

Our inventory strategy does not change in a situation like this and the stop order was only for that specific swing trade. We are watching for a reversal formation to get long again because our strategy takes into account the probabilities of the broader location, and does not place any weight on noise.

As long as price stays above 5755, it will likely be setting up for a squeeze. If price reaches 5669 and reverses quickly, that will also count for a failed low formation which will prompt us to look for a bullish reversal trigger as well.

The bearish scenario for us is a break and close below the 5669 reversal zone boundary. In that scenario, we will stop looking to buy and just wait for stability to return.

In summary, bearish momentum can present tough price action when it is right in the middle of a major support area . At S.C., we consider this random price action until the market provides proof by taking out a major level. These are the kind of areas where patience from experience comes into play. Our bullish outlook has not changed, because nothing says that this market is going to make a new low at this point.

The most we can do now is wait for structure to line up for the next swing trade long.

this is how i see it


@MarcPMarkets Thanks for the post! +1

Just curious, have you ever taken a course from Frank Bunn??
BTC Realtime #4 got and update now with really Bullish Outlook.
where all the moon shot TA for BTC go? guess there's still plenty who say 60K by year end
This is our short term perspective after multiple rejections on the 4H Channel Down:

I would be careful as the weekly chart has pointed the way for BTC for sometime now. You have a bearish descending triangle with support broken ($6167). Statistically this does not play out in favor of BULLS. Its true, long term I've been bearish on BTC and cryptos for a while now. But in the short term I've played both sides of the trend (not biased). So in short, I would not accumulate for a long position trade. The risk is not justifiable from where I stand. Just my opinion, based on the aforementioned and statistics (not in bulls favor 70-80% of the time).
