The Perfect Storm - Higher Risk Trade Idea

BITFINEX:BTCUSD   Bitcoin / U.S. Dollar

Trade Buy 7880 : Target 8454 : Stop 7620 R:R 2.2

This is a higher risk trade using half the position sold at 10850. Evaluate your risk tolerance and positioning before taking this trade as this is a continuation trade. This is a summary of the more detailed trade I posted earlier this morning.

After expecting a Bullish Reversal with what looked like the perfect reversal signal we ended up with the makings for a Perfect Storm with nothing but negative news releases every day from the typical Boom Doom and Gloom reporters.


Looking at the chart from a broader term perspective I went back to our original wave count. I also looked at several extensions and retraces from various waves and fractals of, for levels of interest as well as levels where there were possible trap setups. On the 13th of March we added the 8860 level which I mentioned was a key support level and once it broke a selloff followed which I explained.

Zooming in on the daily chart I like the 7627-7668 level, where in this short range three levels converge, the 1.618 extension of the double top , the 0.618 extension of the previous bearish leg, and the 0.618 overall correction from 2015. Could this be the perfect storm for a Bear Trap? I also like the fact it is likely under the majority of traders radar as they are focused on 6000 and lower right now and continue to pile into the short trade. Not that we can not go lower, but with short interest being at an all time high this is likely shorts late to the game and those are the fish I’m after.

I sold my 9743 trade at 10850 and I am buying 1/2 of it back here at 7880 with a tight stop loss of 7620 and a 8454 initial target level R:R 2.2. If we get a signal for a reverse I will add the other half. This is purely a positional trade for the longer term and though I have a target level, I will not necessarily sell there.
Comment: Target hit 8475 7.5% profit in just over 24 hours, will update the overview and rational behind the trade in detail as to the analytics behind the trade and where we go from here. Do you hold or do you cover is up to your personal risk appetite.
Comment: As posted earlier in the trade summary, the 7490 level is critical for the bulls to hold. Personally I think we hold here and will update why shortly. A break of this level then we are likely to test the 5800-6500 area but this is also the perfect Bear trap level.

Comment: A piercing of the 7490 level has arrived as well as the trend line. Here is the issue, if you are in long positions you risk selling at a low at this point, If your in a short position you risk a potential short squeeze. Short interest is decreasing not increasing. How the market reacts here will be critical as we do have a valid 2 leg 535 correction pattern and the current wave v is similar in length but a little longer than wave 1 right at a critical level.

Do we rebound here or move lower is the question all of us have. The formation of a pinbar and continuation move would be a welcomed relief to bulls and could start a short squeeze. A close below 1490 and continuation lower I may shave off some and look to the next area of 5800-6600 as we likely test the February lows.

There is no crystal ball here I am simply being patient and seeing what the market does. We have had two positive trades in BTC recently and we are looking for another one but as we have stated sometimes the best trade is no trade. I am waiting to see how the bars form before jumping in or maybe shaving some off to pick up lower.

Comment: 3 leg not two leg
Comment: This was the overall corrective pattern posted last night in our trade analysis.
Comment: In addition I outline 3 different corrective scenarios we were looking at.
Comment: I apologize for the error a close below 7490 not 1490.
Comment: The gold comparison is still valid, this was a nice early reversal signal and shorts will soon be scrambling and calling for market manipulation. Yes the market was manipulated but it was not the whales, it was GREED!

Long live the storm! I want more storms!
Opened short at 9280, closed short at 7400$ and went long, now back up to 9050.
Hellyeah! Bitcoin can have storms every week, let's have a daily storm where I make 50%!!!!!!!!!
Do you still hold your position bought at 7880?
Im still not sure what he is saying

@SwedishTrucking, Up, down, or sideways. Or should I look up some old reference to gold. Sorry just not following.

Hi, Get me this doubt, in the weekly chart I see a crosses of the medias (ma9xema21) which has not happened since 2015, what do you think?

what do you think about weekly Support and resistance?
Well this market is clearly manipulated, but sometimes its just FOMO! One letter is all it takes.

Thanks for the update. I've been working on a theory with a lower bottom target but it's good to keep an open mind. This is my primary count:
Constructive criticism appreciated if you have time to take a look. I am a novice, looking to learn by sharing.
