Bitcoin Price Sets New All-Time High Above $65,000

Bitcoin price has done it and made a higher high, setting a new all-time high record above $65,000 according to several exchanges and the TradingView BTCUSD Index. What exactly does this mean for the first-ever cryptocurrency and the current market cycle? Read on to find out. Bitcoin Price Sets New Record ATH Above $65,000 The number one ranked cryptocurrency by market cap has just set another major milestone, and proven to the market that the bull cycle isn’t yet finished. It also means that the April 2021 “top” was nothing more than a mid-cycle pullback before the coin reached its final destination target closer to $100,000 or higher. Related Reading | Bitcoin “Supertrend” Begins As Buy Signals Stack On All Major Timeframes Targets for the cryptocurrency reach as high as several hundred thousands per coin at the conclusion of this cycle. Future estimates have reached as much as $10 million per BTC based on the stock-to-flow model. The recent Bitcoin ETF approval ended any second guessing or speculation over whether or not the bull market had ended, or if a bear market had began. Bear markets don’t have dead cat bounces that lead to new all-time highs. The higher high also keeps the uptrend in tact by the pure definition of the term. There you have it, folks: A new all-time high is set. Where does it end? | Source: BTCUSD on TradingView.com BTC Back In Price Discovery, What Happens Next? Technicals have suggested this push higher was coming. The monthly Bitcoin RSI is back in the bull zone, and most other technical indicators are leaning bullish on high timeframes. What has thrown many market participants off, has been an overheated technical picture on the daily that is heavily dominated by the higher timeframe signals. Related Reading | Bitcoin Price Prepares To Blast Off Back Into RSI “Bull Zone” With no resistance above, the market will be less likely to sell or go short, because there is no telling how high Bitcoin price could go from here. Each successive peak will cause the same wide-sweeping question if the top is in, until it is. This could make for a final leg up that moves faster than most are expecting, with very few or limited pullbacks to buy in. What’s worse, is that the final leg of a bull run usually does mean a bear market is coming, and is due to arrive the moment the actual peak is in.

Bitcoin Price Smashes Record For Highest Weekly Candle Close Ever

Bitcoin price is back at levels from earlier in the year, but has yet to set a new all-time high. Last night’s weekly candle close still came with a new broken record for price: the highest weekly candle close in the cryptocurrency’s history. Will the bullish weekly close lead to new highs? If so, will this be the culmination of the bull run? And if not, does that mean a bear market instead? A new record has been set | Source: BTCUSD on TradingView.com Bitcoin Price Sets New Record For Highest Weekly Close Ever According to TradingView’s BTCUSD Index, the weekly Bitcoin price chart had a record-breaking weekly close at roughly $61,528. The number remains around $4,000 short of the cryptocurrency’s current all-time high, however, with new records being set, are new highs a given? Related Reading | Bitcoin “Supertrend” Begins As Buy Signals Stack On All Major Timeframes It is difficult to imagine a scenario where Bitcoin were to fails to move higher from here, especially after such a clear sign from bulls with weekly close. Fundamentally, the cryptocurrency is strong, scarce, and supply is only diminishing. Technicals are bullish, and even the news cycle has turned positive for BTC with the approval of the first ever ETF. The double top narrative could drive prices lower | Source: BTCUSD on TradingView.com Bulls aren’t yet out of the woods until a new all-time high is made and then some. The target of a double top pattern would bring Bitcoin price back to $14,000 and could still keep an overall bullish Elliott Wave count. The accompanying narrative would be powerful for bears, but not quite a bear market. A more logical Elliott Wave setup would keep the leading cryptocurrency by market cap trending higher from here, but it ultimately being the last leg up before a bear market arrives. When wave five ends, a new bear market will begin | Source: BTCUSD on TradingView.com Elliott Wave Theory suggests that markets move up in the primary direction in five total waves, which are then sub-divided further into impulse waves and corrective waves. When the five-wave uptrend ends, a three-wave bear market follows. Price often then retraces back to the between wave three and wave four of the bull market. Related Reading | Bitcoin Price Prepares To Blast Off Back Into RSI “Bull Zone” Mapping EWT over the Bitcoin price chart above, the pattern fits the chart and each time sure enough, BTC fell back to between wave three and four. The final scenario has a much nastier fate for our favorite cryptocurrency, and it involves retracing the entire 2020-2021 bull run. The longer bullish supercycle could also be ending | Source: BTCUSD on TradingView.com With the way an ending wave five retraces back to between a wave three and four, if the larger Bitcoin price cyclical trend were to end, a larger correction of the primary trend should be expected. The difference would suggest a false bottom at $50,000 that eventually gave out to $20,000. Which is exactly why Elliott Wave Theory points to the worst bear market record when this bull run is finally finished.

Bitcoin “Supertrend” Begins As Buy Signals Stack On All Major Timeframes

Bitcoin price is above $60,000 and bears are in disbelief. But they shouldn’t be, as bulls have long been in control of the trend. It had only been lower timeframes that had flipped bearish, while the most dominant trend had remained up. According to the Supertrend, all of the most important timeframes have since flipped bullish, with buy signals appearing across the board. Here is a closer look at what the tool says, the only remaining timeframe without a buy signal, and more information on what the Supertrend technical indicator does. What The Supertrend Says About The Bitcoin Bull Run When Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies are trending, they move fast and hard. During uptrends, coins post tens to hundreds of thousand percent rallies. Downtrends then wipe out 99% of that progress. The cycle then repeats and it happens all over again. Trends take place across multiple timeframes. For example, a short-term downtrend on daily timeframes might last weeks, while a monthly downtrend could take years to turn around. The same is true for the opposite direction, which is what bears missed this time around. Related Reading | How 90-Year Old Market Wizardry Predicted The Bitcoin Breakout Bitcoin price flipped bearish on daily and even weekly timeframes, but failed to flip fully bearish on the monthly timeframe. That is at least according to a technical indicator called the Supertrend, which gives fairly straightforward buy and sell signals. On monthly timeframes, Bitcoin never fell bearish, and has recently flipped back bullish on the daily and weekly timeframe. From left to right: Monthly, Weekly, Daily timeframes | Source: BTCUSD on TradingView.com Buy Signals Stack As BTC Approaches Pivotal Point According to eLearnMarkets, the Supertrend is a trend following indicator “similar to moving averages.” It is plotted along with price action, using only a period and a multiplier for its calculation. “When we construct the Supertrend indicator strategy, the default parameters are 10 for Average True Range (ATR) and 3 for its multiplier. The average true range (ATR) plays a key role in ‘Supertrend’ as the indicator uses ATR to compute its value and it signals the degree of price volatility,” the site description reads. Essentially, the tool projects a moving average-like line based on the Average True Range, when which broken, issues a buy or sell signal depending on the direction. The two-week still hasn’t triggered a buy signal | Source: BTCUSD on TradingView.com Buy signals have been issued on daily, weekly and monthly as pictured at the top of the article, but the chart directly above here shows that the two-week timeframe has yet to be penetrated, leaving one more box for BTC to check before new highs are guaranteed. Related Reading | Bitcoin Price Prepares To Blast Off Back Into RSI “Bull Zone” The fact buy signals are only just triggering as Bitcoin is hitting former resistance and what was supposed to be the bull market “top” is probably the best proof yet that what happened in April 2021 was no cycle peak. As for what price that might happen yet, we’ll be watching the Supertrend closely for when the next sell signal triggers.

Bitcoin Price Prepares To Blast Off Back Into RSI “Bull Zone”

Bitcoin price is back at nearly $57,000 and is less than $10,000 away from a new setting a new all-time high and heading back into price discovery mode. It is also moments away from re-entering the RSI bull zone, which in the past has led to cryptocurrency cycle climaxes and a bear market to follow. Here is a closer look and what to watch for. Bitcoin Price Readies Aggressive RSI “Bull Zone” Reentry Bitcoin price action doesn’t behave like other assets. Its speculative nature helps it to follow technical analysis well, but remains highly volatile. But in some cases, when FOMO begins, even technical indicators begin to behave irrationally. The Relative Strength Index, for example, is an oscillator that tells a trader when an asset is oversold or overbought. The idea is that when a reading is above 70 an asset is overbought and nearing the end of its trend. Related Reading | How 90-Year Old Market Wizardry Predicted The Bitcoin Breakout On lower timeframes, this can help to find short-term tops, but on higher timeframes, going above 70 tends to signal that bulls are out in full force, and very little will stop them. Bitcoin is about to reach above 70 on the RSI | Source: BTCUSD Index on TradingView.com The same monthly timeframe also shows another anomaly: Bitcoin price has never gone into oversold territory according to the monthly RSI. This is all happening while both Bitcoin price and the RSI itself are beginning to build upon a parabolic base. All this behavior suggests that the cycle isn’t over, and another wave up is about to ensue. The Trend Line Separating A Bull And Bear Market A different look at the RSI and a descending trendline, drawn with a dotted line below, could provide a clue as to where the trend will end. Falling back below a reading of 70 will confirm a bear market is here. Could BTC top out at the descending RSI trend line? | Source: BTCUSD Index on TradingView.com The reentry into the bull zone should cause bulls to take control over Bitcoin price once again, but is contingent upon a monthly close above a reading of 70 to ignite the spark. Pushing through beyond $65,000 to a new all-time this month would do the trick. If that happens, parabola should take the top cryptocurrency by market cap closer to $80,000 per coin. Related Reading | Bulls Regain Control Over Bitcoin Trend Strength: What To Expect That would leave very little room between that level and the promised land of $100,000 and above – where the coming mania will likely come to an abrupt end, much like the same RSI has shown happens at the conclusion of each cycle. Falling below 70 during this cycle will either be a bear trap that is confirmed this month, or the shortest time spent on the bull zone in Bitcoin’s entire history – which one is it?

Analyzing Altcoin Season And The Impact Of A New Bitcoin All-Time High

Bitcoin price is only striking distance away from potentially setting a new all-time high, or only about a 15% move higher for the new record to be set. As the top-ranked cryptocurrency surprisingly weathers the macro turmoil as of late, altcoins have suffered dramatically and for the most part bled while BTC has been rising. Alt investors are capitulating, and moving their capital into BTC as to not miss the coming last leg up. But what exactly does this mean for the ongoing altcoin season? Is it over? Or will there be another leg up like there could be in Bitcoin – a move that is becoming increasingly clear by the day? Alt Season, Bitcoin Dominance, And The Theory Of Five Waves Down Bitcoin and altcoins have a very unusual relationship, despite being assets of the same class. Top traders such as Nik Patel have spent years working to understand the strange, cyclical behavior between BTC and alts, and have found some success. After such an explosive altcoin season, the market is convinced that the music has already stopped, asset prices have topped out, and have started to reallocate heavily into the strength of BTC. Related Reading | How 90-Year Old Market Wizardry Predicted The Bitcoin Breakout But much like Bitcoin’s recent pullback is close to proving to be little more than a massive bull market shakeout, due to the relationship between alts and BTC, this divergence between the two types of crypto assets could be a similar shakeout. BTC dominance suggests another wave down. | Source: CRYPTOCAP-BTC.D on TradingView.com Many analysts, such as Elliott Wave International’s Tony Carrion, subscribe to the idea that BTC is about to enter a wave five impulse against the dollar. That would suggest that BTC just completed a wave four, which in the end was a big bear trap. But what if alts are close to finishing a wave four against BTC, with another wave to follow? That’s exactly the picture BTC dominance tells. Comparing the total altcoin market cap sans BTC against the king itself, shows that alts might shockingly be undervalued by comparison. A similar shakeout in momentum can be seen during the last cycle using the LMACD, pictured below. Alts are lagging behind BTC in valuation comparatively. | Source: CRYPTOCAP-TOTAL2 on TradingView.com Which Altcoin Will Survive Best Against BTC When Retail Returns? Looking at the total crypto market cap and comparing it against Bitcoin price, there are some similarities between the two potential points highlighted by an ascending triangle. The bullish chart pattern if valid would result in a similar up move – taking the cycle to its climax in both Bitcoin and altcoins. An ascending triangle fractal could launch alts to new highs. | Source: CRYPTOCAP-TOTAL on TradingView.com With so many altcoins having already performed so well, capital very well could flow into other lagging coins, leading to underperformance in alts that have previously done well. Related Reading | Astro Crypto: Summer Bitcoin Slump Could Bring Bountiful Fall Harvest For example, during the last cycle, although both BTC and ETH went on to new highs, it was Litecoin and XRP that performed the best during the last leg up. Both assets were well below the triangle consolidation during the last cycle, and once again have found themselves lagging severely behind. Is this time different? Not much has changed from cycle to cycle. Underperforming altcoins could perform the best in the next wave | Source: CRYPTOCAP-TOTAL on TradingView.com The direction of BTC dominance can be deceiving, as the direction of the chart is down when altcoins are doing well. The rest of the charts, which use the same assets in unique juxtapositions, make for a more compelling argument as to why altcoin season has barely even started yet. And the current divergence between BTC and alts is possible the same type of a shakeout that most of the market just fell for in the BTCUSD trading pair. The psychology behind this expectation, is that the market has realized it was wrong about BTC, and is selling USD, alts, anything to get back into position. When Bitcoin gets back to new all-time highs and attracts more attention to the market, newcomers will go to alts and not BTC. The higher the top-ranked cryptocurrency gets toward $100,000 and more, the less likely anyone but institutions or the extremely wealthy can afford it. Altcoins will be the next best bet – especially ones that have no sellers remaining such as those that have underperformed thus far. This is the best alpha I can offer regarding the future of #Bitcoin price. I do not think we see a lower low, regardless of if we continue to correct. Bears will not get their win before bulls get $100K.

How 90-Year Old Market Wizardry Predicted The Bitcoin Breakout

Bitcoin price has erupted to more than $55,000, clearing any downtrend resistance and potentially signaling that the bull run is back on. The move might have taken bears by surprise, however, the blueprint for what happened was created around 90 years ago. Here is a history lesson on Richard Wyckoff, Wyckoff theory, and how the market wizard born in the 1800s was able to predict the price action of a digital asset that didn’t debut until the 2000s. Everything You Need To Know About Rickard Wyckoff And His Theory Richard Wyckoff was known, according to Wikipedia, as an American stock market investor. He also founded and acted as the editor of the Magazine of Wall Street in the early 1900s. Wyckoff himself was fascinated specifically in the underlying mechanics that caused trends to form or change. He spent much of his later career studying markets, and other investors of the time. Names of those he studied include Jesse Livermore, and JP Morgan. Related Reading | Ethereum Potentially Trades Inside Livermore Accumulation Cylinder Pattern Wyckoff believed in the idea of a “composite operator” or a singular mind that controls the ebb and flow of the market. Wyckoff then spent his final days in the 1930s examining the behaviors of this “composite operator” and came up with certain schematics that would tell traders if the market is in one of four distinct phases: accumulation, mark up, distribution, and mark down. Phases of re-accumulation and re-distribution are also common as mid-points before the cycle repeats. But how does this all apply to Bitcoin? In an article I shared last week on @newsbtc I suggested price action in #Bitcoin looked like distribution *before* the big drop. The video below is the *after*. pic.twitter.com/WwVs7YQxzb — Tony “The Bull” Spilotro (@tonyspilotroBTC) April 23, 2021 Bitcoin Price Breakout Could Be Predicted With 90-Year Old Schematic Bitcoin price action was in clear distribution when the leading cryptocurrency by market cap reached $65,000 in April 2021, as the tweet above demonstrates. Related Reading | Bulls Regain Control Over Bitcoin Trend Strength: What To Expect After crypto took a huge plunge in May, it was then up to the “composite operator” to decide if the asset would be re-distributed, or re-accumulated. The chart below makes it quite clear which of the two was happening. Wyckoff re-accummulation should lead to extensive mark up and new all-time highs | Source: BTCUSD on TradingView.com What should come next, is a mark up phase. And when that is over distribution will happen again and put a final end to the current bull cycle once and for all. At that point, watching for signs of re-distribution or accumulation at the bottom would be what the techniques designed more than 90 years ago would suggest. But that is only if you believe in the power of Wykcoff theory. Do you? Follow @TonySpilotroBTC on Twitter or via the TonyTradesBTC Telegram.

Bitcoin Price Taps $50K, But Here’s Why Bulls Aren’t Out Of The Woods

Bitcoin price this morning touched $50,000 – a feat that might have have made a bear market look a lot less likely. But bulls could be celebrating too early, and a max pain scenario of a symmetrical triangle few currently see could end up shaking up both bears and bulls in the days ahead. Here is a much closer look at the symmetrical triangle, what the corrective pattern suggests, and why bulls certainly aren’t out of the woods just yet. Downtrend Remains Unbroken, Symmetrical Triangle Possible Downtrends can be deceiving. They don’t always necessarily mean a bear market, and even if a downtrend line is broken, another one can form higher and prevent the reaction bulls are expecting. Related Reading | Could A Bitcoin Bull Flag Leave Bears Blindsided? For example, when Bitcoin broke out from bear market downtrend resistance, the early 2019 rally to $13,000 was the result. However, because of the new downtrend line created at that high, Bitcoin spent another full year and then some below the new downtrend resistance. There is still one more downtrend resistance to go before bulls are out of the woods | Source: BTCUSD on TradingView.com Assets often must clear three opposing trendlines for the primary trend to resume. This situation is happening now, but on much smaller time scales. Bitcoin price has made it through two downtrend lines, but one is left. Drawing a symmetrical support line provides the potential for the triangle that few technical analysts are talking about currently. Valid trendlines tend to have at least three touches, but the third touch could provide the final E-wave of a triangle corrective pattern during a bull market. The wave 4 correction could be an Elliott Wave triangle pattern | Source: BTCUSD on TradingView.com Bitcoin Price Corrective Wave Could Be Nearing Its End The E-wave could clear out any positions built at support around $40,000, crushing bulls who went all in on what they thought was a bull flag breakout. The move would also restore bearish exuberance, and push Bitcoin price back into the $30,000 range to suck in more short positions. Only then might Bitcoin price make it through the top downtrend line to continue higher. But it all depends on where the E-wave “terminates.” It is worth noting that a such a triangle during a bull market often leads to new highs. Related Reading | Bulls Regain Control Over Bitcoin Trend Strength: What To Expect An Elliott Wave corrective triangle will appear during a wave 2 or 4 of a motive wave, which represents the primary trend. An Elliott wave corrective triangle and its higher lows would keep the bull run structure in tact, and fit the Elliott Wave rule of wave alternation. If Bitcoin is in a motive wave, wave 5 should begin soon | Source: BTCUSD on TradingView.com This rule suggests that only one of the two corrective waves – wave 2 or 4 – will result in a sharp correction. The other would be a sideways correction lacking a lower low. Not only do corrective waves tend to alternate in overall severity, the patterns tend to switch. This means that if wave 2 was an Elliott Wave zig-zag, then wave 4 would be a flat, triangle, or other pattern. Eliott Wave Theory provides the roadmap for a trend. The roadmap continues to say until proven otherwise, that once wave 4 ends, wave 5 begins. But for now, bulls aren’t yet out of the woods and a sweep of lows could still be possible.

Bulls Regain Control Over Bitcoin Trend Strength: What To Expect

Bitcoin bulls are back in charge, so to speak. The headline alone makes quite a statement, and there are no doubt several readers questioning how one might draw such conclusion after only a small move and lack of new highs. The conclusion has been made for us all, depending on what the Average Directional Index is currently saying about an asset – in this case the top cryptocurrency by market cap. Let’s take a look what the trend strength measuring indicator says about Bitcoin price action. Tug-Of-War Ends With Bears Falling Flat Last week, after several weeks of chop and stalemate, Bitcoin broke out from short-term downtrend resistance, and is close to making it though high timeframe resistance as well. The shots fired from bulls might have actually been the starting pistol ahead of the final leg of the bull run, according to the Average Directional Index. Related Reading | Bitcoin Trend Strength Indicator Suggests Bull Run Isn’t Yet Over In technical analysis, a reading on an indicator either is or it isn’t – meaning, for example, the MACD can only be crossed bullish or bearish, not both at the same time. The Average Directional Indicator is a trend strength measuring tool that typically comes with two built-in directional indicators – a positive and a negative. The ADX itself, simply says how strong the trend is, and the positive and negative DI tell who is in control. They make reading the tool very straightforward: green crossed above red is bullish, and red above green is bearish. From that description alone, who is currently winning the battle of Bitcoin, as pictured below? Bulls just took over the daily trend | Source: BTCUSD on TradingView.com Bitcoin Price Remains Bullish On High Timeframes The green line only just took over from bears, so bulls only recently regained the upper-hand on the lowest timeframes. Bearish traders were expecting different results, because the weekly setting using this indicator is currently negatively crossed. Related Reading | Bitcoin Ready For Display Of Strength, But Which Direction Will It Break What was able to leave bears blindsided, however, was the fact that the highest timeframes still show plenty of strength left for bulls. Any recent downtrend was an attempt to feign weakness by bulls, according to the indicator’s readings. The ADX shows plenty of bull trend left | Source: BTCUSD on TradingView.com The ADX itself, depicted in the dark blue line, hasn’t yet begun to turn downward. When it does, it could be a sign that the bull trend is finally ending. After the peak in 2017, Bitcoin never truly broke bearish when compared to the 2014 bear market. When bears finally do regain control over Bitcoin price, the worst bear market ever could follow. Follow @TonySpilotroBTC on Twitter or via the TonyTradesBTC Telegram.

Bitcoin Price Blasts Off With 10% Move, But Is This The Start Of More?

Bitcoin price in a flash is near $50,000 once again, after several retests of $40,000 rounded support holding strong. Extreme bearish sentiment due to Evergrande, a rising dollar, and more left the market in extreme fear, and expecting the worst. The sudden surge took Bitcoin price more than 10% intraday from wick to wick, but technicals could suggest it is the start of something more. But before bulls are in the clear, there is a lingering bearish counter-signal that needs to be invalidated before a bigger rally can materialize. The top cryptocurrency made a surprise move this morning | Source: BTCUSD on TradingView.com Bitcoin Rallies 10% Intraday From Wick To Wick A fearful fractal resembling Black Thursday has appeared in Bitcoin price action, which also has certain hallmarks of Wyckoff re-distribution. At the same time, the leading cryptocurrency is holding at high timeframe resistance turned support, and could be breaking out of a bull flag. The indecision is felt in the sentiment, which has led to a confused community at odds with one another, depending on which side of the trade they are on. Related Reading | Astro Crypto: Summer Bitcoin Slump Could Bring Bountiful Fall Harvest $47 million worth of short positions were liquidated in what could have been a bull flag breakout, which has a target of closer to $80,000 per coin. Such a lofty target sounds shocking, but given the parabolic base-building in Bitcoin, isn’t impossible. And it all could be beginning now, if a bearish divergence can be invalidated before it confirms. Bulls must beware the bear div over the weekend | Source: BTCUSD on TradingView.com Bearish Divergence Warns Of Possible Retest, But Depends On Bullish Momentum The bearish divergence is on the daily RSI, but if there is enough strength, Bitcoin price will blast through it and it will be invalided. However, eager bulls should be wary of another plunge down due to the signal, which could ultimately retest the bull flag breakout as resistance turned support. The bull scenario is possibly more likely due to other signals. The LMACD has crossed bullish, and the daily RSI bounced off a descending trend line streaming from the top. Related Reading | Could A Bitcoin Bull Flag Leave Bears Blindsided? Bitcoin price has also tapped the Parabolic SAR on the daily timeframe, but volume has yet to arrive which could hint at a potential fake out or support the bearish divergence theory. What this all boils down to, is that anyone taking a position now would need to be cautious – at least until more clarity on direction is revealed.  Surpassing $53,000 on the daily timeframe should prime the top cryptocurrency for a pump toward the current ATH, which it might not stop at once it gets there.

Ascending Triangle Points Ethereum Toward Powerful Potential Climax

The cryptocurrency market is trending bearish on the short-term, keeping Bitcoin and Ethereum prices at bay after an enormous Q1 2021 rally. But there is no telling if the bull market is officially over, or if a bounce could materialize into a larger recovery. An ascending triangle pattern and long-term trend line could provide a clue as to what might happen next, and it just so happens to match a pattern from the last cycle that took Ether to its bull market peak. The Ethereum Fractal That Could Keep The Bull Run Climbing Ethereum’s recent local top set back in April around $4,400 might not have been the bull cycle peak, according to a potentially bullish structure forming with each retest of support lower. Although the ETHUSD trading pair appears rather bearish and sentiment is at extreme fear, the altcoin is setting a higher low on daily timeframes and remains more than $1,000 more than lows set only months ago. Related Reading | Build Base Or Bust? Bitcoin Touches Down On Parabolic Support The structure of higher lows and rising support, capped off by the same resistance level several times, could have painted an ascending triangle pattern on the trading pair – a chart pattern that almost exactly matches a mid-cycle retracement during the last bull run. Will the ascending triangle pattern produce similar results as last time? | Source: ETHUSD on TradingView.com All About The Ascending Triangle Pattern An ascending triangle is a bullish chart pattern that can either appear at the bottom of a trend as a reversal, or at the mid-point of a trend as a continuation pattern. When these bullish patterns breakdown instead, the fake out can be deadly. But if support holds and resistance is taken, a large move to the upside occurs. An ascending triangle pattern is what put in the Bitcoin bear market bottom, and it was also the last pattern crypto traders saw before Ethereum soared from $380 to $1,400. Related Reading | Why Bitcoin Bears Might Not Get To Buy New Lows $380 remained a key resistance level all throughout the bear market, and a retest of the level is what sent the cryptocurrency flying to $4,400 this most recent time. The target of this structure based on the measure move would result in nearly $10,000 per ETH, but another tap of the trend line that caused the last peak, adds another $4,000 to that target. But this is all predicated on the bottom ascending trend line holding, and an eventual break of resistance following. Without the confirmation, the pattern will be invalidated, which could result in a much steeper drop instead. Follow @TonySpilotroBTC on Twitter or via the TonyTradesBTC Telegram.
