You can barely see the cup and handle pattern we pointed out last Thursday. Bitcoin broken out and has not stopped going up. Our first target for a consolidation area is near where the price currently is. This is the Fibonacci retracement of the sell off from $25k down to just under $19k. It’s possible this is people positioning into today’s CPI print that has not come out yet at the time of this writing.
Even if there is some consolidation in this range $25k will be the key level for Bitcoin to beat. A rise above $25k would signal the beginning of an up trend or at least a signal that the down trend started in late 2021 has been exhausted.
Please join us in our discord where we discuss active and potential trades.
Possible Course of Action
Do nothing and wait for price to move above $25k (get long)
Hold if already long
The Bulls’ Defense:
Higher Low, Show of Strength
The Bears’ Prosecution:
$25k now resistance
