Bulls Get Paid, Bears Get Paid - Pigs Get Slaughtered

BITFINEX:BTCUSD   Bitcoin / U.S. Dollar
Let's review the current market conditions to understand what we are to expect in the near future...

When we broke down the $6,000 level back in January we spent appx. 3 months in an accumulation phase in preparation of the break out back up to retest the $6,000 break down level. After this accumulation phase, we had a beautiful run up in the past couple of weeks once again putting Bitcoin as the kick of all markets and putting us in the #1 spot for investment in the first quarter of 2019.

Market manipulation

There was a very strange spot price spread between Bitfinex and the other exchanges such as Bitstamp , Coinbase, Etc... It was $500.00 spread that in my opinion triggered this run-up creating a buying frenzy and arbitrage opportunity between exchanges. It seems this was orchestrated and pulled bitcoin out of a critical area which now makes that area very strong support.

Over Leveraged Bears

A self-fulfilling prophecy when a market is top heavy to one or another side the shorters were over-leveraging or hedging their positions forcing a move up that was a breeze as the shorts would close at every critical intersection buying up the market breaking out and pushing the market higher and higher. Until we broke $8,000 and had a 12,000 BTC short drop off and the market started going flat and forcing us to drop over 30% on BITSTAMP to $6400 area..

Where Do We Go Now?

We are at another critical juncture now - Market has to make the decision of taking another leg up, Which in my opinion is less likely. Maybe only if we get some major bullish news we can spike up once more. Something along the lines of a ETF Being approved by the SEC in the next few days.

But I think the chances of that are very unlikely, you are supposed to buy the rumor and sell the news, So even if the SEC does approve the ETF this will be a selling opportunity for people not a buying opportunity in my opion as the only people buying will be the retail investors. I will probably put appx. 10-15% chance that we actually resolve to the next target of $9,500 and the percentage will drop the higher we go from there.

Essentially we are looking for a pullback now A healthy correction into the $6,000 - $5,500 area will give us the time to accumulate and reach those levels, If we run up to $9-10-11-12K although possible its also a very big chance that we will drop all the way back down to the break out point of $4,000-5,000 as this growth is unsustainable and as history shows is not healthy.

So a healthy pull back is extremely important, and I would think we would find lots of buyers near the 200MA.

The Bear Scenario

The fact that a market that drops from 20,000 to $3,300 without having a massive capitulating event bugs me and makes me worry for the future of Bitcoin . I still think that $3,300 was not the bottom and that we should have landed between 1800-2400 with a capitulating candle that gives us no more than 15-30 minutes to buy the actual bottom.

Because this never happened it is still a possibility of this. And the fact that we ran up the way we did seems to be very manipulated and forced up, Yea it was a great run up but who's to say we can't crash all the way back down to $3,300 and do a double bottom? I think it's totally possible but I am not trading this... yet.. Once we are under the 200MA opening and closing candles under this level we are able to re-evaluate the strategy of this massive drop . As of now I am neutral to bullish .

Don't forget its not a sprint , Don't try to take every trade and win all the money. Sometimes just waiting is great, Be patient and get paid dont get greedy.

Comment: I must have forgot to add the bull side, If we break above $8300-8400 depending on what exchange, Its going to go up very quickly from there to $9-10-11K easily..
Comment: We are re-testing the resistance again, This is the third attempt to break this with every attempt the resistance is geeting weaker and its more and more likely that we break above the local top that we have May 16 @ $8352. If we break above this we will have a quick move up into the next point of resistance which should be previous high's of $8500 - $8900 - $9300ish area. Once again setting a ATH for the year and creating a massive buzz. We need to trade based on market indication and right now Long above previous high, and short under $7400 - $7200

Go whales :)
Good bullish analysis, let´s hope pigs get slaughtered!

Accumulation areas taking place AGAIN after the end of the bearish trend. The last time it happened was in... 2016.

@CopilotThe, Its not a bullish analysis, It is a bearish analysis and states that the pigs are the people that want higher prices.

looks interesting. what do you think of this formation?

@logindaten, I think we broke the idea of this formation yesterday by making a double top. Now we are more likely to continue higher. We are in a very weird zone, especially with tomorrows news, I would stay out of the market for the next week as things might get a little volatile. I would focus on buying breakdowns or break outs. EX; Break of $8350 or Break down of $7000
