BTC/USD - Textbook Rising Wedge (Instructions inside)

BITSTAMP:BTCUSD   Bitcoin / U.S. Dollar
Hello friends! After a prior strong downtrend of six months, the price of Bitcoin ( BTCUSD ) printed a Rising Wedge pattern. This pattern was formed by higher highs combined with small pullbacks during this seven-weeks trend. Smaller pullbacks usually underline the strength of a trend. What's suspicious here is that the we see a divergence with the volume, which was declining while the price was rising. Buyers did not support the higher price levels. This finally resulted in a rejection at $10.500 with a move to $9.200 within 6 days. The Support Line of the Rising Wedge broke.
Indicators go crazy on this volatility - but most of them point bearish now. The price is moving below the EMA 20, which is an inherent part of my strategy when trading Bitcoin .

I use the Rising Wedge pattern to verify my
  • Stop-Loss slightly above the peak
  • Neckline & Entry at today's open price
  • Technical Target at the bottom of the Wedge

Since we do have a major event upcoming in May (Halving), i will hedge here while adding more longs at the Fibonacci Retracement Levels (0.5, 0.618, 0.786).

What is the neckline for?
@Queen_B, the neckline has to break (daily candle opens below the line) to confirm the breakout of the rising wedge
