BTCUSD: In Key Support Area. Can The Next Candle Reverse?

BITFINEX:BTCUSD   Bitcoin / U.S. Dollar
BTCUSD: Price is now retesting the 8044 reversal zone boundary. This is an attractive area for longs but there is no signal in place. How the next candle closes will provide important clues as to whether there is a signal worth taking.

Drama, it's everywhere. As soon as price moves more than people were expecting, the first thing they seek is "Why?". A story of any kind to fill in the painful void of uncertainty. And you will find plenty of drama, because it generates ad revenue.

When I see a market move of this nature, the first thing I check is the level, and the next thing is the formation. I could care less why. Eventually, someone will tell me and I didn't have to waste any time searching for news. By the time I find out "why", my trading plan has been made, and action or non action has been taken. I mention this because this market is presenting a great example.

Bearish momentum is pushing price into a very attractive support area . 8044 is the reversal zone boundary relative to the 8204 low. This is an area that offers a high probability trade IF a setup can materialize. If it cannot, and price instead falls through, then there is simply no trade to take. Stay flat and wait.

Keep in mind price is now below the 8171 support which is the .618 of the entire bullish structure all the way back to the 150 lows. This support zone reaches all the way to 4559. Can price get there? No one can predict that. We can say that within this broad zone there is a much higher probability that price finds support and mounts a broader reversal.

In summary, the level is the first variable we consider when it comes to isolating a swing trade long opportunity. Momentum is bearish so price can keep going, but what if it doesn't? What if instead, the next candle forms an inside bar? Or a bullish pin bar? What do you think that means? It means a short squeeze is likely and an opportunity for a swing trade long will be present. On S.C. we use these factors along with other criteria to isolate high probability setups and then broadcast the signal to our followers. We will be watching the current level closely.

please clear info, i dont know that what will do
Reverse to what, 8500? And soon it will be reverse to 7900. Each level of consolidation it reaches creates a new reality and comfort zone while what isn't mentioned is the gradual degrading of any ATH. The ones making money on this are whales injecting big money and using bots to reap huge profits in the incremental but ever descending chop.

@johnhawkk, i agree. Good point. It is going gradually, but at some point, price will dump fast. I don't believe on any reverse at this point. Bull trap already happened, and everything is ready for the big dump.

@lemosedmirf, I could be wrong, but I am beginning to believe that Bitcoin Futures was implemented to push the value of Bitcoin down and then stabilize it (like gold). Altcoins will likewise fall in value, but once Bitcoin is stabilized, more money will be pumped into alts, just like money gets pumped into stocks. This process will separate the wheat from the chaff, so to speak. Banks and governments will create their own digital currencies to maintain control. The alts that prove to be most useful will thrive, and the rest will gradually die off.

Looks like bulls have given hope. What a shame.
