We are in crazy times. The unbreakable has been breached and many people are claiming that new uptrend is starting for ETH. What a wonderful time to open a short at a crazy price ^^
Market participants have succumbed to fear & overreacted (especially shorters). The DAO spam has probably blinded many, but the real reason price got this high was due to short squeeze & margin liquidations + chart painting to finish .
- Slock.it The DAO has cooled. First it was 100k / hour, now it's ~ 2-10k / hour, 5k avg.
- Too much anticipation of buy pressure on ETH due to The DAO -> it will not sustain, forget figures such as 5 million ether. It will be max 2 million ether.
- BTC Relay allows for currency-agnostic usage of Ethereum blockchain & DAPPs ( Bitcoin , Doge, ...). ETH token will lose it's main intrinsic value (being the requirement to enter DAPPs world).
Vitalik himself has numerous times stated that Ethereum is the future, yet Ether is not a storage of value, just "gas".
- Digix DAO will start selling ETH. We just don't know when, yet.
- The DAO will start selling ETH too, and from a pump will become our fuel to goblin town. We just don't know when, yet.
- Bitcoin community has yet again been a victim to chaos & FUDs today. Will the real Nakamoto please stand up? We all know the story... but what's important, there hasn't been a strong dump. And there usually is. Why not today? Given the fact that Gavin Andresen had his committer rights revoked, etc... we can only state that the underlying market structure of Bitcoin is strong and thus Bitcoin is a buy. -> BTC price will rise soon. Expect negative impact on eth/xbt price.
I believe that BTC Relay will bring Ether token price down a lot over the coming weeks. It allows using Ethereum without the need to own Ether.
Find a spot to short eth you are comfortable with. Some more confirmations would be wanted from TA point of view before entering a position, unless you are seasoned trader. For explanation, see chart.
A bounce is expected once hitting the red . Once its broken, it is OTE short zone. Shorting anything above it is less certain, but comes with more potential profit.
For EW fanatics, I like this jesse charts..
Happy trading! :-)
The buyers are no longer present. They came primarily from The DAO, the rest margin traders... those are all in long position. Fomoers are already long. And at this price, non-fomoers have no reason to enter a long position. Reason is that there is no new bullish indicator or resistance being triggered (2250-2300).
On the bright side, we are looking at bear divergences on many times frames (4h, 1h, 15m) and soon will be looking at red crosses on some indicators, like KDJ.
Possibly 2350 will not be visited again. Its first visit was due to fear, fomo, uncertainty and margin calls. And to fulfill Bull Flag. All is covered, I do not see a rational reason to go to 2350 again.
Opening more shorts now.
Happy trading! :)
1st Target: 2050.
2nd Target: 1800.
Stop-loss ... soft: 2350, hard 2500.
4h KDJ has confirmed the Bear Diveregence. Enter now for medium risk, medium profit.
For low profit, low risk, wait for MACD cross.
Happy trading! :)
Trade should now be active for everyone. 4h MACD Bearish X kicked in.
With the violent 15k market sell wicks I do not recommend anyone to close the shorts.
Support to 2000 has decreased from 4500 btc 5 hours ago to just 1300 btc now. Bounces are not likely.
Happy trading! :)
- RSI exited uptrend. P-SAR about to breakdown. KDJ matured, soon the bear-strength will kick in.
- It is likely we will follow the ghost feed.
- Bitcoin has gone up (as predicted). Prediction: Bitcoin strong market-structure, will go up more.
- Polo orderbooks have shifted a lot in the past 24hrs. From 10k+ bids yesterday, less than 6k bids remain today. From support of 4500 btc to 2000 this morning, less than 1000 btc remains in the evening.
From here aka 2100, it is 50/50 whether we bounce to 2200 and then down or whether we straight down. What I would look for is P-SAR confirmation. If it breaks down on this 4h candle, which is very possible, short it. Otherwise wait until it breaks down and then short. I have a strong short position already from 2300.
P.S. Goblins want their meth Down Down Down to Goblin Town :)
As predicted in our idea: 2050 was hit and then 2200 was hit for reshort. Nice profits are building.
4h is described in the chart. Bearish af.
Daily: Those who want a stronger bearish confirmation must wait for Tenkan-sen to cross-over below Kijun-sen again. This will provide an extremely strong bearish confirmation. However, it will also be too late a signal for a potentially prosperous trade which is being developed now.
I am shorting anything above 2150. Have more limit orders at 2000 and also at 2250. Chance is only 50/50 that we visit 2150 from here (2070). The buy walls will soon wear-off and will be either dumped into or removed. Now is good time to build short position on any bounce. Also, if we break 2030, I am adding more.
Happy trading! :)
- 5 days of consolidation, longs started closing today. Poloniex available btc margin went from 1800 to 3200 in just 8 hours. Big players are going to short this.
- Dao hype is over. Yes, they locked away 2.5% of eth supply. It's nothing. SN owns 10% of bitcoin and it had no effect on price.
TA says DOWN TO GOBLIN TOWN. See chart
We took profit first time 2 days ago at 1950, reshorted 2060. Believed it would still go more down.
Today we took profit here at 1940. AND we also went long. I believe there is bottom formed and we will visit the Elven Highwoods before resuming our path to Goblin Town!
Explanation in chart.
1950 -> 3250 = 1300 pips profit.
Happy trading! ;)
P.S. I am moving onto MAID, already had most of capital there. Next ideas gonna be on MAID.
