BITCOIN's first red 1W candle! Is this all that bad?

BITSTAMP:BTCUSD   Bitcoin / U.S. Dollar
Last week Bitcoin closed its first bearish 1W candle (-7.32%) since April 21 (-2.82%), which was the strongest red candle since February 24 (marginally as this one was at -7.34%, the next one was at December 2 at -17.91%).

So how bad can this be for BTC? A quick answer is not bad at all! Such a formation doesn't hurt Bitcoin's bullish chances, in fact it enhances them.

How is that so? Well during the start of the previous 2 bull cycles (2015 and 2012) the price action also delivered a big bearish 1W candle following the break out from the 1W MA50. This candle effectively put a stop to the parabolic rise on both occasions. What followed this candle was consolidation in the form of a Triangle pattern that lasted 4 - 6 months before giving way to a new parabolic rise.

Assuming BTCUSD is following a similar pattern, we may have at least a 4 month consolidation ahead of us. However we've seen already that the start of the current bull market has been more aggressive to a fair extent compared to the previous ones. We'll see if the price moves as aggressively in the coming weeks.

What this analysis shows is that Bitcoin long term investors have no reason whatsoever to worry about as they have another bullish sign to feel comfortable about. The 4 week close above the MA50. Closing above the MA50 for four straight weeks has been one of the strongest signals that the new bull cycle has started. The MA50 has since supported the new bull run and was only broked deep into the bear markets that followed. I am confident we have a similar case in our hands.

I am confident we have a similar case in our hands. Are you?

@gumbler, Good catch. It is trading on your lower channel right now, I guess you have this as the accumulation zone.
It looks like the market has decided to continue going up. Too bad for the people waiting on the sidelines for much lower prices.

@kardia, We are in a bull cycle after all. For at least another 1.5 - 2 years the dominant direction is up.

@TradingShot, I hope it lasts longer than that! The people who have wrecked the crypto market deserve to be left behind.

@kardia, Who have wrecked it? The same people that were buying during previous years, just wanted to take their gains?
