BITCOIN – Key Price Levels

BITCOIN – Key Price Levels!

I have struggled with further scenarios, after the bounce from my mentioned level at $7,930, because there are two, almost equal, resistance levels which can play an important role in the next movements.

To be said, I'm still with mid-term bearish bias because of the Weekly bearish candlestick pattern Evening Star . The price can make another $150-$300 leg upwards but still, it doesn't hurt my bias. My bias starts to change after the price has climbed above the $8,700 and the Weekly candle gets a close around that level – the green "box". So, because of my mid-term bearish bias a search selling areas/opportunities.

 

At the moment, the price moves between $8,200 – $8,300 and this area is also our first resistance area – the lower gray "box".

There are:

– Fibonacci retracement levels 50% & 62% pulled from different tops

– Fibonacci extensions 127%

– The minor trendline (light blue) which is the upper trendline from the bearish chart pattern called Rising Wedge

– The area itself is a significant level. This price level has worked as resistance on mid of the May, beginning of the July it worked as a support and now it should act as a resistance level .

Now, the mentioned struggle – we have some bearish price action on the current levels ( bearish candlestick patterns on the 4H and on the 1H), the level is pretty strong to short BTC from here, from the first gray area but Still, there is something which doesn't allow to do it, I don't know why it doesn't feel right to short it here but probably it is the buyers consistency from $7,500, steady grind upwards is usually pretty bullish for BTC price! So, that's why I'll wait for a further confirmation, if the price still starts to fall lower from the current level then another confirmation comes after the breakout from the bearish chart pattern Rising Wedge – a candle close below the lower light blue trendline and a candle close below the red price level ($8,110)will be a bearish confirmation and you should get at least 1H candle close below that level.

 

The second selling area stays around $8,500, this area was also the target 2. on my previous post. There are some price action criteria and they should act as resistance levels:

– Fibonacci golden ratio 62% and minor the Fibonacci level 78%

– Fibonacci Extensions 162%

– The round number $8,500 should act as a resistance.

– Depends on the price action but the minor trendline ( Rising Wedge upper trendline ) may act also as a resistance. It depends when it reaches into the higher gray area.

This level is just a little bit more favorable because of the Fibonacci level and visually it looks also better but if it starts to go right away then this area becomes also a bit riskier because then the price is cracked this minor light blue trendline and it can find a momentum to push it through the higher gray box. So, to be more secure then the bearish candlestick pattern is needed on the upper gray area and only valid patterns are bearish Engulfing , Evening Star , bearish Railway Tracks (if you don't know them, google helps you out).

SUMMARY: Pretty simple guidelines – the first area (lower gray zone) gives us a confirmed movement after the breakout from the chart pattern called Rising Wedge and the second area (higher gray zone) can give us a reversal trade opportunity after the bearish candlestick formations! Sell orders, because my bias is bearish because of the Weekly timeframe price action and this can "easily" change and it changes after the BTC price has climbed above the $8,700!

ULTRA-BULL CASE’ FOR BITCOIN DRIVEN BY CENTRAL BANKS ANTHONY POMPLIANO

‘ULTRA-BULL CASE' FOR BITCOIN DRIVEN BY CENTRAL BANKS – ANTHONY POMPLIANO

‘ULTRA-BULL CASE’ FOR BITCOIN DRIVEN BY CENTRAL BANKS – ANTHONY POMPLIANO

The Rundown

 

  • ‘A Perfect Storm for Bitcoin’

  • Era Defining Moment for BTC

Anthony ‘Pomp’ Pompliano of Morgan Creek Digital believes Bitcoin is about to experience an epoch-defining next 18 months.

 

A PERFECT STORM FOR BITCOIN’

Speaking to Bloxlive TV earlier in June, Pompliano said the next 18 months will be crucial for Bitcoin. The Morgan Creek Digital co-founder believes the plethora of developments with potentially global economic impacts will contribute to upscaling Bitcoin’s role in the global financial system.

Will Bitcoin Reign as King in Times of Economic Instability? @APompliano shares his thoughts with @BloxliveTV https://bloxlive.tv/stories/s73news/22056-20190604-nob/93906-anthony-pomp-pompliano-talks-bullish-on-btc-us-china-trade-war …

Pomp drew a line linking trade tensions between the U.S. and China, dovish central bank policies and the 2020 Bitcoin halving as important drivers that will have a positive impact on BTC price.

According to Pompliano:

Over the next 12 to 18 months, we are going get a perfect storm for bitcoin. There are a number of events that are going to happen at the same time. Central banks will be forced into some interest rate cuts, maybe some QE. These events [will] ultimately drive Bitcoin into an ultra-bull case.

Already, several market analysts warn that the current global economic trajectory is one tending towards another financial crisis. Bitcoin appears to be in prime position to ride this tumultuous economic wave, offering, as Bitcoinist called it in an op-ed late last year, “a non-political alternative to the money printing pyramid.”

ERA DEFINING MOMENT FOR BTC

Monetary policymakers around the world from the Federal Reserve in the U.S. to the Bank of Japan (BOJ), and the European Central Bank (ECB) are all adopting dovish policies.

There are reports of adopting rate cuts or even zero-interest-rate policy (ZIRP), not to mention the seemingly permanent quantitative easing used to paper over the cracks of a deteriorating market.

Bitcoin emerged after the 2008 financial crisis and the next year-and-a-half could potentially form its defining crucible. This ‘digital gold’ is already providing a suitable shelter for investors against the coming financial storm. Ironically, it is the banks themselves that could further solidify its status as the prime driver in the separation of money and state.

federal reserve system

If the separation of church and state opened the way for religious and political freedom, Bitcoin proponents argue that a politically-neutral, opt-in monetary system could do the same for economic freedom. In other words, it can do to money what the internet did for information.

Bitcoin in many ways has the ability to ‘scale trust’ in society by completely removing it from the equation. This will be particularly important when it comes to transferring and storing value compared to the ‘full faith and credit’ fiat money that has been holding the global financial system hostage.

Bitcoin will hopefully be a fully realized store of value when, not if, the credit bubble inevitably bursts

Bitcoin BTC Price Approaching Next Break – Bullish or Bearish?

Bitcoin (BTC) Price Approaching Next Break -  Bullish or Bearish?

Bitcoin (BTC) Price Approaching Next Break – Bullish or Bearish?

  • Bitcoin price recovered recently above $7,900 and $8,000 against the US Dollar.

  • The price failed to stay above $8,000, formed a swing high at $8,080, and recently declined below $7,900.

  • There is a key breakout pattern forming with resistance near $7,940 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair (data feed from Kraken).

  • The pair is currently under pressure and there is a risk of more losses below the $7,800 support.

    Bitcoin price failed to gain momentum above $8,000 and declined recently against the US Dollar. BTC is currently approaching the next break and it might breakdown if the bulls struggle near $7,950.

Bitcoin Price Analysis

Recently, bitcoin price started a decent recovery above $7,800 and $7,900 against the US Dollar. The BTC/USD pair even broke the $8,000 barrier and the 100 hourly simple moving average. However, the price failed to gain bullish momentum and formed a swing high at $8,080. As a result, there was a fresh decline below the $8,000 support area. The price broke the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent recovery from the $7,520 swing low to $8,080 high.

There was also a spike below $7,900 and the 50% Fib retracement level of the recent recovery from the $7,520 swing low to $8,080 high. Finally, the price broke the $7,800 support area before the bulls took a stand near the $7,750 level. Moreover, the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the recent recovery from the $7,520 swing low to $8,080 high acted as a strong support. At the moment, the price is trading above $7,800 and the 100 hourly SMA. More importantly, there is a key breakout pattern forming with resistance near $7,940 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair.

Therefore, the pair seems to be preparing for the next break either above $7,950 and $8,000 or below $7,800. If there is an upside break above $8,000, the price is likely to climb further higher. A follow through above $8,080 is likely to put the bulls in control. The next important resistance is near the $8,200 level. On the downside, an initial support is near the $7,800, below which the price could decline again towards $7,600.

Looking at the chart, bitcoin price is showing a few bearish signs below $8,000 and $7,900. If there is a fresh decline below $7,800, the price could move back in a bearish zone. It may also diminish the chances of a break above $8,200.

Technical indicators:

Hourly MACD – The MACD is losing momentum in the bullish zone.

Hourly RSI (Relative Strength Index) – The RSI for BTC/USD is currently below the 50 level and is moving higher.

Major Support Levels – $7,800 followed by $7,700.

Major Resistance Levels – $7,950, $8,000 and $8,080.
