Bitcoin TA - summary of analysts - 23. July 18steemCreated with Sketch.

in bitcoin •  11 months ago  (edited)

Regular daily update on BTC ta analysts opinions.

My summary - short-term (next 24h) sentiment: bullish (last: bullish)

*Not too much news today - not many updates and not too much changed to yesterday.*
  • We moved up to 7'700 area

  • RSI on all timeframes up to daily is at 70 or above (close or at overbought).

  • Lets see if we close daily over 7'664 (MA128 daily, November 2017 top).

  • Next major resistances are 7'780 (Mid line Bollinger Bands weekly) and 8'280 (MA50 weekly).

  • It seems in the war of the bears and bulls we are entering another battle: Can the bulls create enough FOMO to create distance to the lows and overcome major resistance levels? If so we are not going to see the current levels for a long time.

  • Or do the bears lead the bulls into a trap and than smashing hard to the downside. That would create a lot of frustration and might lead to the capitulation which you would expect to be necessary to call the bear market over.

Bull scenario*:

  • We reconfirm the 6'800 or 7'000 level in a pull back gathering strength for another move up.
  • That confirms a higher low and bullish 5 wave count.
  • Alternate: Bull flag is forming - that brings us directly to next resistance level at 8'300 from here.
  • Volume needs to increase.
  • We overcome the death cross area of the 30/50 week MA and break above it.

Bearish scenario*:

  • We move up for one or two weeks into the death cross (30 and 50 MA weekly) at around 8'500 and than drop significantly.
  • Alternate - bears are turning after the RSI gets oversold and make a lower low
  • After breaking 5'800 a significant drop towards new lows in the range of 4'975 and 4'300.

*scenarios based on daily-candles - so around 4-14 days timeframe. See also definition section

Summary of targets/support/resistance of TAs

Short-term overview

mid- and long-term overview

  • please refer to definition section for time-horizon.
  • be aware that mid- and long-term is mostly my interpretation of what analysts sentiment is as they not always clearly differentiate those time-frames. To interpret that consistently is very hard so please be kind with my interpretation.
  • you can easily spot which analyst did an update
    (block writing - grey ones don't have an update today).
    Their changes are in light blue.

Helpful statistics:

monthly performances

  • Added 2012 + 2013 on request.
  • As 2012 and 2013 the % move are gigantic I added two averages. One without 2012 + 2013.
  • June performance was very weak. With -14.8% clearly below the average of the last years. With 2013 this is the only negative month at all.
  • July is a mixed bag - 2 year positive performance and 2 year of negative performance. 2012 and 2013 were positive though.
  • The average is positive with 2.1% but that is mainly due to the bull rund 2017. The average incl. 2012and 2013 is even more positive. That is mainly due to the 40%+ spike in 2012 so I wouldn't rely on that.
    So just looking at this table we probably facing another negative month.

News about the blog

  • CryptoCred: Posting target on twitter and has very good educational videos. See Educational links section for them.
  • Forflies: I added him not knowing him too well - that is why his logo is in grey box - meaning under evaluation.

Analysts key statements:

Tone (neutral):


Quarterly chart: We are almost done with 1-4 correction. October / November could be the bottom.
Monthly: Flipped from red to green. That can be good or bad. If next month trades above the current that could be bullish. you need to get above 9'000 be green though.

Short-term outlook:

  • Weekly: Still in 7'400 range. We got a price flip.
    We are coming on to a death cross. We had a good week which came off the 9. We might pull up to the death cross. Lets see if we make it there - this would be a clean short trade. That should be around end of month or beginning of next week.
    SAR are taken out - that is bullish. But we had that also in 2014 before reversing.
    Bollinger band are to far spread for a typically bottom. You want this to be narrow a the bottom.
  • Daily: We have major resistance at 7'600 (even from last year). The MA 128 turned us at 10'000 it might turn us here - that resistance is serious.
    We have a bullish flag pattern - the target is 8'300 - which would bring us at the range of the death cross.

@lordoftruth (slightly bullish):

Bitcoin price today started with clear positivity to surpass 7.600K,
and most likely the bullish move, supported by stochastic positivity,
will continue to push the price towards 7.800K area, and this upmove will be followed by a decline to 7.000K, as 4H Chart shows that,
Bitcoin price prepare to a retracement by Butterfly "Sell" Pattern towards 7.000K - 7.050K area.

Todays trend is neutral. Trading between 7'050 and 7'800.

@ew-and-patterns (bullish):

He was thinking of a move within a triangle but that seems to be off the table.
Bildschirmfoto 2018-07-21 um 11.34.06.png
Rather he sees the current move to be either end of white wave 3 or C leg of yellow wave 4.
Bildschirmfoto 2018-07-21 um 11.34.14.png

older news - still valid:
It is too early to call it a bottom, but I want to show you the best case today. Let's say this impulse wave continues past 8'000 and finally past 10'000...
If so, this is the most probable best case.
It would form a cup pattern, possibly with a handle afterwards.
Bildschirmfoto 2018-07-18 um 09.39.50.png
This move could bring BTC up to 13'200 for wave 1 or X. If it's wave 1, we will likely see any other correction but not a triangle. If it is wave X though, a triangle is very likely due to the rule of pattern alternation. We would have a ZigZag for W, an expanded flat for X and a triangle for wave Y (red).

@passion-ground (neutral):

Here we are, and yet – it still ain’t over till’ it’s over… …the BEAR MARKET that is.
Bearish on the higher level. Next turn month is August.
Daily at his R1 line and gets rejected so far. We are rapidly moving towards RSI overbought.
Weekly - we are moving into a buy signal - long term. We are about breaking out of the downtrend (log chart). We are in a descending triangle and breaking upwards.

TradeDevils (bullish):

Bullish case:
After wave 3 is completed we fall to the 0.382 level at 7'066 completing wave 4 and move as wave 5 to 8'060 level. That would be a strong indication for a now wave 1 higher degree and a trend change (towards bullishness).
Bildschirmfoto 2018-07-21 um 12.04.51.png

Bearish case:
We move up to the 8'000 area completing a ABC correction as wave 4 of 5 waves down of the C wave. That would lead to the 5'200 - 4'800 target zone.
Bildschirmfoto 2018-07-21 um 12.02.08.png

Big picture:
He sees that the current move was a 5 wave move to a one and we are looking at a deep 2 which leads towards 4'390 (0.786) and than to a wave 3 with much higher prices.
Bildschirmfoto 2018-07-21 um 12.00.10.png

He sees lots of positive signs for the bullish case.
Expected that we are correcting towards 7'100 before moving higher towards the 8'300.
Than he expects a bigger correction towards 7'000 area confirming a higher low. That would be very important and supports the bullish case strongly.
Bildschirmfoto 2018-07-19 um 12.01.41.png
If that gets to be true we are probably up to the races towards all time highs. See bigger picture below.

Tyler Jenks (bearish):


SAR has been hit. That is his only point of bullishness.
Bollinger bands are very wide and we are below mid-line. We would need to get above the mid-line and close above 7'780 - to get a bullish signal. If we would get that - we would need to get to the upper bollinger band channel at 9'500 to continue strength.
Volume on weekly is still trending down.
Moving averages (weekly) are moving to the downside. 2 - 7 - 14. We are above short and mid-term. We are above the first two ones but we are below long term and that one is heading down. Also intermediate is still moving down. That signals a neutral to negative chart.
RSI came a bit up - for him that could be interpreted as taking breath for further downside as we have never been oversold. Also we have not gotten back to last peak. He is also not expecting us to.
MACD is getting better "negative" but we are still negative.

He is impressed that the SAR is taken out - but that is his only long term indicator that he is using which is positive. The rest is neutral to negative and he expects this move to slow down and turn soon.

He has positioned itself still in cash and is convinced that he can buy BTC below 5'000 at some time in the future.

UglyOldGoat (bullish):

He sees that alt-coin money - especially form eth - is flowing into bitcoin keeping us up. That weakens the ETHBTC price.

Furthermore he expects that as soon as it escalates towards a drop oft ALT/USD ETH/USD that this will create a panic and bring BTC to the long expected break below 6'000 price level.

It seems volatile times ahead...

IT's time to pull the trigger

The basis, relative strength, the timing indicators all say it is time to pull the trigger and risk 1st and 2nd quarter lows. Yes, if we break it will be hard but that is fear. . . everything else says this is a low risk time and place to be a buyer.

Crypto Cred (bullish):

Bullish here.

I) Reluctance to break market structure - lows are holding

II) Shorts below lows are trapped

III) Consolidation after an impulse move = higher probability of continuation

IV) Resistance weaker w/ each test + purple magnet

Quick update after a big red candle #agedwell

Strong reaction after 3rd test of resistance

Bullish structure still valid as long as the low holds

If that gives way = mkt structure is broken = I'll flip bias to short to 7k>

Always have a plan & know when it's wrong.

Froflies (bullish):

4d bitcoin is moving sideways - very unusual for bitcoin.
We are moving in a channel (2.5% range).
He sees lots of positive signs.
1hr: volume is picking up a bit on green candles - red candles are less. That is typically before pumps.
Bull flag ist showing signs of strength.
He strongly expects that we break to the upside
Ishimoku cloud resistance is concerning him though - that is why he is not taking any positions.
EMA 13 and 48 daily golden cross supports bullish signs.
Also broken up through the log chart down trend.

  • light blue highlighted = all content that changed since last update.
  • sentiment = how in general the analysts see the current situation (bearish = lower prices more likely / bullish = higher prices more likely). The sentiment is based on 4hr, daily, weekly, monthly candle charts.
  • The forecast time horizon of candles can be compared with approx. 4hr = 1-2 days; daily = 4-14 days; weekly = 4 - 14 weeks; monthly = 4 - 14 month.
  • target = the next (short term) price target an analysts mentions. This might be next day or in a few days. It might be that an analyst is bullish but sees a short term pull-back so giving nevertheless a lower (short term) target.
  • support/res(istance) = Most significant support or resistances mentioned by the analysts. If those are breached a significant move to the upside or downside is expected.

Only few whales make this graph as what they want ..whatever may be our analysis ..

very decently explained, exceptional!

Good stuff

Tyler Jenks' analysis is always very interesting, but I don't like the use of the Parabolic SAR for the crypto market.
Using a trend indicator for a market that most of times doesn't have a trend but just spikes, doesn't really make sense to me, but for the rest, perfect analysis.


I think Tyler has never used Bitcoin, he trades stocks and sometimes invests into GBTC ETF...


Yeah, I can understand, but it shouldn't be an excuse. I also started only last year with Cryptocurrencies, but I don't use exactly the same setups that I use for other financial markets.
Anyway, he must have his good reasons to do so!


At least him being bearish matches with not hodling any BTC... Tone Vays on the other hand was so sure BTC was going down, yet didn't sell any more than he had to for living expenses...
I started selling way too early and way too much last year, didn't hodl anything substantial after 15k lol, and way before that sold my BCH as soon as I could in the fork day...this year I started average buying in too early... but gained some BTC from crypto/ crypto trades... I am trying to be ready for anything that happens next...

@famunger looking at the current market scenario I can say that if bitcoin cross 8000 with a good volume then it will go up but if it goes down then can go down till 6800-6900. Do you agree ?

I really like this compilation of yours that you're doing :) keep up!
