If you missed the last few newsletters, we’ve been following the relationship of the price to the 20 day and 20 week moving averages. These are important initial averages to rise above if any kind of real reversal rally is going to sustain. As you can see for the past year BTC has been trading under the 20 weeks moving average (orange) and mostly trading under the 20 day moving average (blue). You’ll also notice that the rally in July/Aug rose above the 20 day moving average but was nowhere near rising above the 20 week moving average. We are now at a critical moment where BTC is finally testing the 20 week moving average as resistance for the first time since April. This would be the minimum requirement for the start of any mid-term rally.
It’s likely the price continues to squeeze volatility as it compresses between the 20 week and 20 day moving average. It’s probably as simple here as ignoring everything and just watching how the price interacts with these moving averages in the coming weeks.
Possible Course of Action
Stay long if price is above 20 day moving average
Short if 20 weeks MA holds as resistance
Get long if price holds 20 week MA as support
The Bulls’ Defense:
Price is above $20k and 20 day MA
The Bears’ Prosecution:
20 week MA is acting as resistance
