THE BTC WEEKLY CHART: "The Panic Zone" Where's the top?

BITFINEX:BTCUSD   Bitcoin / Dollar

Is it time for a double top? I made a slight modification to the unconfirmed downward trend line, the dashed blue, The dashed red is a confirmed trend marking the current rally. Top resistance is at $490 slightly lower than the blow-off top 5 weeks ago. Effectively we are still in the wedge I previously spoke of in an add-on note. I have to admit this rally has been surprisingly healthy with rising averaged volume along with a rise in price. A break to the upside beyond $500 would be a blast-off point for the next major move up (beyond $1200). On the less positive side, the rally is getting ahead of itself. with a two week surge that is begging for a retracement back to the trend line. A retracement would create a classic double top which traditionally is an omen. A downward break through the trend line would be setup for a major move down. The panic zone is still in the below $275 range.

Over the next few weeks I expect wedging action between the hashes. A break either way can occur. Study the volume moves on the daily chart for clues. I'm short term Neutral and very long term bullish . I don't think the market is ready to blast off in the next two months and I fully expect some bottom testing action.

Here's a few of interesting articles:

I have noticed some fundamental information for the current rally which would be a solid justification for a breakout to the upside out of the wedge and above all known upside resistance. If we see a solid breakout in volume then I would change my current Neutral opinion to Bullish. There is movement in China towards currency controls and further devaluation of their fiat currency. This is fueling an exit towards crypto-currencies to preserve value. Also, the South African Rand is in a free fall and the South African government is in full panic. The SAR debacle has fueled the current rally and the China moves are going to have a longer term effect as they unfold.

If anyone has information on other currencies in trouble, please post them here. Thanks!
