We see massive bearish candles in range with significant indecision which can lead to breakdown to low side range of channel. From here looking for a retest of $3646 - 3650 on lower time frames. On larger time frames a breakdown would confirm a throw over and possible swift move down to the $3400 range. This is a danger zone or no trade zone for many as it lacks good sets ups on risk-to-reward entry/exits. For those in trades it is critical to respond to prices action and understand that the bottom could fall out at any point with this set up. VIOLENT bearish price action is expected by most bar any run up to $5200 by months end. Confirmation of reversal in any direction is not expected anytime soon in part because of low volume. Cryptocurrency is an immature, low liquidity market with current long term ranging sidewise.
- Recent action and volume took BTC to above the daily 0.382 and the 50 MA then broke down
- Touching the 0.500 Fibonacci ($3725)
- Critical resistance to hold on downside is 0.618 ($3580)
- If it closes below the 21 MA then downside to 0.786 ($3376) then 0.886 ($3254)
- Daily stoch headed to downside
- Historically this has signaled significant downside. Currently that is the $3400 range
- Weekly stock is ticking up but has sideways PA which indicates market is cooling off
- Consolidation likely to be resolved to the downside
CLEAR REJECTION AND BEARISH DIVERGENCE WITH RECENT 4-DAY DEATH CROSS
- Close below $3750 takes BTC to buy zone $3530 - 3550 the 0.618
- Taking out $3400 range would see BTC test $2308 - 2600 range, the 0.886
- Gaining more strength to downside
GRAYSCALE BITCOIN TRUST
- Confirmed lower high 4.41 which is a bearish signature
- Next support 4.167 - 4.22 and possibly lower depending on volume
- Also being governed by 50 EMA and 10 SME
ETHEREUM - ETH
- Weekly outlook is in a clear rejection which is bearish
- Broke the 200 SME on lower timeframes
- 2-day stoch signaling down
- Retest 0.50 fibonocci ($127)
- Next resistance is 0.618 ($117 range)

ETH/USD is gradually giving back the gains which were made in February, as the bears take back control.
ETH/USD daily confluence detector
The Ethereum price took a further beating in the session on Monday, nursing losses of some 3%. Pressure resumed across the market, as participants remain very much cautious and have been since the big knock on 24th February.
ETH/USD is gradually giving back its big February gains, having dropped to its lowest level today seen since 17th February. The buyers have ben trying to defend the big $130 price area, however, have failed to do so in the session today – Monday.
Given the current downside pressure, eyes are on the big barriers of potential support, via the daily confluence detector. The levels of note; $126.26, monthly 61.8% Fibonacci, $124.96, daily pivot point support, 50 daily SMA.
ADDITIONAL BITCOIN TA
The indicators give us the following signals:
- RSI falls and supports bears. The line is far from the oversold zone. It also means that we have the opportunity to drop lower
- MACD lines and histogram support the downward movement
- DMI is bullish , and ADX falls confirming the correction movement in the trend market conditions
After a sideways movement, the price made a step-down and reached the combination of SMA50 and SMA100. These MAs form a new local support zone where the falling market can be stopped and reversed. It's possible to get such reversal from the zone at 3600.00 level, but the best reversal signal should come from the uptrend line. If the price reverses from this support line, the signal will be perfect for buying with targets at 4000.00-4200.00 and 6000.00 resistance and stop below the local swing low or 3000.00 support. The market tried to develop a new uptrend, and now it's the correction period in the trend market.
Bitcoin finally makes a move lower, and this was not to be un-expected. It was actually the higher probability move, but this is far from the end of a broader move higher. We remained neutral over the past week after our swing trade hit its second target and we are simply allowing the market to play out and provide a setup for going long.
Trading Article - For the Trolls that do not understand the difference between trading and investing, this is about swing trading. Not day trading, not scalping pennies in your mum's basement. I am Neutral in the short term, Bullish in the Long and Mid term.
Most of trading and investing is done waiting for setups. It is critical to be patient in any market, as impulsive decision making or acting early can often leave you holding the bag or actually losing it. We mentioned over the past week to be patient here, and again in our weekly review, where we were looking for Bitcoin and or Litecoin to print a lower leg before looking for setups. The selloff last week, took a continuation trade off the radar, and we went into wait and seek mode, where we simply wait for the market to play out, and seek setups for a bullish swing trade.
Yet patience has its disadvantages, and often you miss a quick reversal or sudden breakout. However over the long haul there is always another trade setup, and it keeps you from deteriorating your trading capital. All the crap we took last year, our trading capital was up, and it is up yet again this year as well. Many gambled last year and are now desperately trying to get back to break even. I won't forget the follower that could not understand why in a month we didn't take a trade. Well simply, it was not the environment and it probably kept you out of a lot of bad trades. No trade is still a trade!
To be clear there is no trade setup yet. The 3550 to 3650 provides the ideal area to look for a bullish reversal and setup to go long. Entering to early is not warranted as taking out the 3650 level puts the lower 3100-3300 in play. There needs to be a defined structure not a moving average, not a half winged bat, or dark cloud over Bart's head. We are looking for structure, yet Bitcoin's structure is not very clear, but there is a instrument that has a clear structure and that is Litecoin.
