12H Willy is at stupid levels, which does not indicate a bottom because it can keep "trending" at the bottom if the market is truly (see Dec 2014). A breakout upward from this range will show if we are in "buy the dip" mode for oversold conditions because of underlying market, downwards will show if this is simply a leading indicator for more pullback.
12H RMI shows hidden div , like most other oscillators, but is it enough? We will see if it's enough for a breakout from this range to the upside, or like willy, if it is a leading indicator for more down.
Major support lies below us at $268 and $262. Problem is dropping there blows our supporting of this entire up move; and shows resolution from a pretty big consolidation up here. 6H bbands are very tight, 12hr surprisingly tight. If we breakout down from here, we could go as far as $240 before serious support is found and a bounce is had. If we dump that far, it's likely 3-6 more months in the $166-315 range will ensue.
A push up from here will likely ensue a . Not perfectly formed but it might do the trick for our hindsight 20\20.
My upper range of a 450-470 target was more accurate on bitfinex; because their wick to $475 in November was much higher than Bitstamp who only went to 450 (and where I based the target on this chart from). Trend-continuation never works out in the end, we always need a retrace.
Maybe we will repeat this setup again, with a small popup from our current level at $380 into the low 400's then do a major retracement to the downside.
But yeah this time LTC really gave it the guts to push because of how much it was going up. Then many people fled out of that back into Bitcoin giving it another little leg up. Now we get to see true colors, and after breaking out from such a tight consolidation we spent in the last week....
