Epic Pennant on BTC Chart


 Share

Recommended Posts

Bitcoin's Bollinger Bands are tightening, it's price has flattened out and it is staying above the first Down Trend Line.  MACD on the Daily is positive.

@Eric123 i guess we should see some green days as a rebound to 35K before going back down to 18-23k 

18-23k?   I wouldn't count on that price.  To me that kinda seems like back in July of 2020 when people were waiting for Bitcoin to retest $8k.

Its a reasonable price target even historically, price always was going more than 80% in bear market, 18k is 75% from ATH.

Bear market is about destroying the dream and feeling "Something is wrong"

you still think BTC will go to 100k+ this year?

Even if the "traditional" markets go into bear mode, which seems all but inevitable right now?

There are passing correlations between Bitcoin and Commodities at times and Tech Stocks at times but Bitcoin's price movement is not dependent on the equity markets.  Regardless of what happens in the other markets Bitcoin has it's own adoption/growth trajectory independent of anything else.

That's a bold statement IMHO. So you reckon people will still put money into BTC regardless of what the economy at large is doing? I have my doubts but I guess we'll see soon enough.

Maybe I am a bit prejudiced here, but to me so far none of the much touted use cases for BTC have materialised. As it stands now it seems completely useless as an alternative payment system, way too volatile for being a store of value and it also does not seem to perform too well as a contrarian investment either.

I would love to make a buck just as much as the next guy here so a 100k BTC sounds really sexy to me but I am having a hard time imagining BTC outperforming everything by a couple of orders of magnitude in a post QE world. I am skeptical by nature and experience, but I am keeping an open mind.

Honestly it sounds like you're getting your info from CNBC and they've been reporting the same FUD since Bitcoin was $100.

Yeah, I guess re-reading my comment you could say that I do. However, that does not necessarily mean that I am wrong  it's just the way I see things as they stand right now. I also think this time really is different to whatever was happening in the world when BTC was $100. Just FYI I bought my first at around $800 a pop back in 2014. 

As I said, BTC has not been around in an economic downturn yet and we'll see just how it and crypto at large can cope while the economy is on the way down. I don't see it doing very well in that scenario, all my experience with crypto so far would suggest that it is highly susceptible to any economic jitters and that the correlation between traditional markets, particularly tech stocks, seems to be increasing rather than decreasing as time progresses and as BTC is becoming more and more mainstream. However, this time it seems that the general economic downturn is not only cyclical but also structural and while that presents a whole slew of new problems it also in itself can and most likely will change the rules of the game completely and BTC can come out on top. We'll see.
