My most recent Bitcoin Bubble Comparison led to the following predictions: 1 day - 28 days = < $5,750 | bottom prediction: $2,860 by 10/30
Previous analysis/position: “I am going to continue to wait on the sidelines for further development. I will be watching for the price to retest prior resistance for support at $6,560 and see what happens from there.” / Sidelines
Patterns: Descending triangle
Horizontal support and resistance: S: $6,550 | Will price resist $6,800 and/or create lower high or will it create a higher high?
BTCUSDSHORTS: Back down to 27,439 which is not far from support
Funding Rates: Longs pay shorts 0.011%
12 & 26 EMA’s (calculate % difference): 12: +0.007% | 26: Being tested for support | Will we get a bullish crossover?
50 & 128 MA’s: Brokethrough 50 MA and is finding support from it | 128: -3.91% | Price is being squeezed in between the two, will it get a golden cross?
Volume: Unimpressed by volume behind this recent pump.
FIB’s: 0.618: $6,611 | 0.5: $6,763 | 0.382: $6,916
Candlestick analysis: Doji and bearish spinning top have been confirmed
Ichimoku Cloud: Daily cloud held as resistance. Price tried to break back into 12h cloud but has since fallen out of it. Top of 4h cloud held as resistance. All clouds are bearish except for 1h which recently had a bearish TK’ cross and has re entered the cloud. It illustrates $6,444 as major level of support.
TD’ Sequential: Weekly price flip following G2 > G1| Daily G4 | 12h R3 | 4h R7 (R9 should provide a bounce and it will be very important if it creates a higher high or a lower high)
Visible Range: Remains in high liquidity area. Should be significant supply and the demand seems to be waning.
BTC’ Price Spreadsheet: 12h: -1.44% | 24h: -1.01% | 1w: +5.89% | 2w: +5.3% | 1m: +1.45%
Bollinger Bands: MA at $6,487 should get retested after pulling back from top band. Tightest the daily bands have been since April of 2017. Tightest we have seen the weekly bands since Dec 2016.
Trendline: Top of descending triangle = $7,044
Daily Trend: Bearish
Fractals: Up: $7,400 | Down: $6,098
On Balance Volume: Bull div’ on weekly.
ADX: ADX is nearing all time lows which indicates that the chop should be coming to an end soon.
Chaikin Money Flow: Bear div' on daily as CMF’ continues to make lower highs and lower lows.
RSI (30 setting): W: 49.13 | D: 48.7
Stoch: Daily sell signal

Summary: All signs are pointing to a huge move being on the horizon. The Bollinger Band super squeeze that is occurring is a very strong indicator of upcoming volatility . The ADX’ nearing all time lows provides confirmation.

A move is coming, but there is no way to be sure which direction it will go. Therefore it is best to be prepared for both outcomes. If the price breaks out of the triangle (on volume ), creates the first higher high of 2018 and breaks through the daily cloud then it will be time to enter a large long position.

However, there is one reason why I do not believe that will happen and it is the overall sentiment on Trading View and Twitter . If this was the end of a bear market then the majority would be calling this a dead cat bounce. Instead the majority still seem confident that the bottom is in and that it is time to accumulate.

The bottom is found when there is overwhelming fear, doubt and uncertainty. The bottom does not usually come it when the majority of market participants remain bullish . That is why I will be confidently looking for a short position to enter.

These next couple days should be very telling. The current pullback should bring us to $6,444 - $6,550 and what happens from there will be extremely important. If the bounce creates a lower high below $6,835 then it will be a tremendous shorting opportunity. If it does create a higher high then it will test the top end of the descending triangle at $7,000. I would view that as another great shorting opportunity due to being able to set a very tight stop loss which would likely provide a > 10:1 risk:reward ratio.

ETHUSDLONGS have entered extremely overbought conditions and are over 2X greater than prior all time highs. That could fuel the most epic squeeze crypto has ever seen and could likely be the catalyst for the next drawdown in the markets.

Hi I spent a lot of time looking at the data and this in Long View Conclusion. There are a lot of details explaining why this in all probability can't be the the bottom.
