Bitcoin Market Update: Price Spike Incoming?
Hi traders, let's look at Bitcoin.
In trading, there is this concept called a fractal.
A fractal is basically this idea that patterns repeat on smaller and smaller time frames.
In Bitcoin, like in any other markets, fractals exist and yes patterns repeat over different timeframes.
That's where it gets interesting.
I've been hesitant to share this particular fractal because it's a little crazy and I am a little superstitious too so I don't want to jinx it.
But here we are, check this out.
Back in April 2018, Bitcoin was on the verge of breaking support, shorts were at an all time high when suddenly whales turned it around and applied a great deal of buying pressure to squeeze the shorts out of position.
This resulted into an epic green candle as short sellers bought in to cover their shorts.
This type of price action is called a short squeeze.
As you probably noticed the chart above is an hourly chart.
Now take a look at the daily chart.
The hourly is a fractal of the daily, let's look at them again, this time side by side.
This is quite fascinating.
Now, first a (big) disclaimer. Fractals are interesting but this particular post should not be construed as a trade alert simply because there is no clear data on whether fractals have statistical significance or not.
Second, in the case a short squeeze would materialize, I doubt it would produce a spike of the same height proportionally speaking.
However, it's something to keep your eye on, particularly if you're into a short position right now.
- As we said before keep your eyes on the stock market for signs of correlation with Bitcoin, the market re-opens on Monday I doubt we'll see anything substantial until then.
- If you're bearish, don't go short right now you could fall victim of a short squeeze.
- Our bias remains neural, until proven otherwise we believe Bitcoin has bottomed and is in accumulation.
Until next time,
