Technical analysis had led many traders into short positions. With a large amount of open shorts (red line) and few open longs (green line), conditions are set for volatile price action. All it would take is a a whale to push price high enough to trigger a cascade of stop...
The Whales' Master Plan
1: Accumulate a large amount of bitcoin at a low price
2: Unload the large amount at a high price
To do this we will need a large amount of participants willing to buy bitcoin at a high price or forced to buy bitcoin at a high...
Bitcoin Bullish Proposal
After the recent price action I've decided to re-evaluate my analysis. By using Andrews Pitchfork, I found a channel price seems to respect. Currently, price is showing a reaction to the median, so if your a bull, this might be something to keep an eye on. If price can break through the median, I believe it will go to the next major...

We are about 500 days into the bear market now and I thought it would be fun to record the similarities between the current bear market and the previous one. Below, we may see what the future could look like.
To start, we can see the bottom of the previous bear market was almost 87% less than the all time high compared to the current 84% bottom. Both times it...
The Bitcoin bottom could be in but I don't think the big players are ready for the price to go higher.
Imagine you are a big player with a copious amount of capital and you want to put it in bitcoin before the next bull run. You know this next run will be a big one. Heck, it could be the mania phase of the actual bubble believed to be in 2017. You have a...
I could see something like this play out.
Moving averages are the 50 week and 200 week but put on the daily chart (350 bars and 1400 bars)

Idea is for personal use.
Don't have much evidence to support this idea, just a scenario that could play out.
My thought is, since price left 4200 so fast in one long green candle, there is a good chance a large supply of buy orders sit around that price.
The retracement to this zone could happen quickly, or take months. I, personally, am waiting to buy more...
The chart below shows the yield spread between the 10yr and 3mo and 10yr and 2yr. When the spread is below 0 (colored in red), the yield curve is inverted. This has been an indicator for coming recessions. The red areas on the SPX are the recession periods.
As you can see we saw an inversion last month (march). The next recession is just around the corner and...
