Let's talk wedgy. Next week there is a trend convergence. The down trend emanating from the 2013 blow off top (blue solid ) and the current up trend (red hash ). I predict a break out up or down out of the not sideways. What are the chances for a down breakout? There's no bad Bitcoin news. No problems with the blockchain. Bitfinex is healing with the BFX token gaining value. New exchanges opening around the world with the most significant being Mexico. I think the chance for downside breakout is minimal. What are the chances for an upside breakout? China is kicking up a storm. Japan is scrambling fighter jets. Another Yuan devaluation is rumoured. The US and Russia are threatening to radiate each other over Syria. Deutsche bailout is all but assured. This will devalue the Euro instantly. The IMF is threatening to dilute the USD reserve currency status. So, if the Euro and USD devalue at the same time does that make the Brexited GBP and gold more valuable? Whatever! There is huge upward pressure on Bitcoin if any or all happen.
I predict a BTC price rise to $750 by February is in the cards. By then we will know which clown will be President. All currency and metal vibration from that event will settle back to the fiscal reality of disaster ahead. Neither of the leading clowns knows how to solve the US financial problem.
Technically the oscillator has bottomed!
Or, the solar storm heading our way could make all the volcanoes erupt at the same time completely upending the climate change agreement and Governor Jerry Browns assault on bovine flatulence. So be it... The end of the world is nigh.
One other little tidbit. Those bad guy hackers that took to shredding the internet yesterday. They never touched Bitcoin or any of the exchanges.
I'm blow'in smoke rings.
