Finally! Something worth writing about happened between Tuesday and now. The stock market reopened this Tuesday after a holiday weekend and there was a huge sell off that followed. Almost every crypto fell on Tuesday with Bitcoin breaking back down below $19k. However, just as quickly as the selling came it went. Yesterday crypto rallied and many cryptos took back Tuesday’s loses completely.
In Bitcoin’s attempt to rally back the price stalled out at $19,500. This is exactly the level we’ve been suggesting you watch for the past couple weeks as a sign to be bearish. So, today Bitcoin is hanging out just shy of $19,500 and appears to be forming a Cup and Handle pattern. If the price breaks to the upside of this handle expect another attempt to break back above $19,500. Retaking $19,500 as support would confirm that Tuesday’s dip was a higher low for the year and a show of strength. This could mean Bitcoin having a mid term rally back into the mid $20ks.
Possible Course of Action
Long if daily candle closes above $19.5k
Short here expecting a retest of the yearly lows
Wait for confirmation of a higher low
The Bulls’ Defense:
Higher low possible
The Bears’ Prosecution:
Bear Flag sell off playing out
