Bitcoin Price: Bear Market Reversal

BITTREX:BTCUSDT   Bitcoin / Tether
Cutting straight to the chase, bitcoin price has undergone a massive correction. A long overdue correction at that. The higher the price rise when a correction is expected the deeper the correction when it does happen. And it has indeed happened, it’s still happening and is expected to reverse any day or time now (2nd Feb 2018).

This write-up will use simple trend analysis ( trend lines and MA) to establish the weakening of the bull trend. These lines should not be looked at in isolation but rather alongside some cyclic indicators (e.g. RSI , MACD and StochRSI) and it’ll be clear why a strong reversal is due.

Trend lines
In simple terms, looking at USDTBTC 1D-candle and drawing a trend line between the lows of 15th Sept. 2017 and that made on the 12th of Nov. 2017 it will be evident that price has just hit that trend line . Looking at this analysis alongside the RSI indicator BTC is currently oversold. Being oversold and hitting a trend line a bounce is expected.

Moving Averages
Similar to the simple analysis above, the 150EMA has most often been the reversal point for BTC . If this line is violated then the 200MA holds strong, such as on the 27th of April 2017. It may be correct to state that the 200MA line is the worst case reversal point for BTC price.
Today 2nd Feb. 2018 at the time of writing this, the 150EMA was violated on the 1st of Feb 2018 so I’m of the strong opinion that the 200MA ($USDT 7,784) SHOULD hold based on history. IF it doesn’t hold then BTC has indeed popped and the moon was $19,800 unless another untested MA support exists.

Trade ist aktiv: The 200MA did NOT hold but we have a new kid on the block (no pun intended). The 250MA held nicely and very strong. So looking into the future if we ever have to deal with a big BTCUSDT pullback and we all feel like panicking we'll have a look at the 250MA as last line of support.
