**My summary - short-term sentiment: slightly bearish ** (last: bearish)


  • We broke over 8'400.

  • Nevertheless most analysts see this as a corrective wave followed by more downside.

  • @haejin and @lordoftruth expect us to go up significantly from the swing low of 7'925.

  • May is usually a strong month. Lets see how it plays out in 2018.

News about the blog

  • I need to revise my 2018 long term table. I need to add a 2018 and 2019 target an be more precise on the sentiment here. Will do that after I am back in Switzerland.

Bitcoin price has initiated what looks like a D wave breakout (blue) arrow. If this is a decisive breakout, then volume should also start increasing (white arrow).

From a forward discernment perspective, the below shows a smaller Inverted H&S which should have a target reach of 8'867. The larger IHS targets the 9'876 and that means that BTC will try and reclaim 10'000 once more.

This move up looks like a flat correction. He favors the alternate count in brackets (ABC) over the previous ABCDE count. He is seeing three waves down, which means that it can't be the end of the correction.
So if BTC reaches 9000 +-300 and starts crashing hard, see this as confirmation for the ABC count.

The bounce off this trendline could indicate that the correction is over. He still thinks it is not over though.

The Selloff Looks exhausted and he believes the bulls are able to stay in control, to push bitcoin price up to the next station at 8'643 followed by 9'279 ( 0.382 extension ).
Bitcoin price tested 8'643, but technical indicators still suggest Mixed Signals. MACD is stable in the bullish zone, but Stochastic and EMA50 continuous forming for negative pressure on the price.

Todays trend is slightly bullish. Trading between 7'614 and 8'643.


BTC finishes 5 beautiful waves and has retraced near the 0.382 region thus far.
A break above 8'468 can build a rally to 8'750. A possible B could be in progress very soon, heading up to 8'426 at the 0.786 range before completing C to the indicated range below.

The current move up thus far, is clearly corrective… - Unless of course, this modest move higher is a most bullish nested series of 1st and 2nd wave advances. Time will tell, and as such, the utmost in patience and due diligence is required in order to ascertain the true intent and implications of this recent rally off the 7'929 print low.
