After two (2) prior unsuccessful attempts at completing inverse Head-and-Shoulders (H&S) formations which prevented Bitcoin (BTC) from breaking out of its long downward malaise over the past six months, BTC was finally able to go top-side of its recent neckline (6900 level), with conviction, in yesterday’s trade and in the process, completing its most recent H&S pattern as well as kicking-off the counter-trend rally that we had been anticipating as well as preparing our readers, for such a potential turn of events.

While six-times a charm was the ticket for Vinny (Joe Pesci), the character in the Film  “My Cousin Vinny”, three-times a charm it was for Bitcoin.

In addition to the successful completion of the inverted H&S pattern and perhaps more importantly, we are now experiencing the large counter-trend rally that we have noted/referenced in several (HERE and HERE)) of our recent writings when we stated, “While the daily time-frames continue to portray potential for lower levels, not everything is bleak. When zooming-out to both the Weekly and perhaps more specifically, the Monthly time-frame/s, we’re nearing an important inflection point from which we suspect that the bleed lower subsides/pauses and in turn, results in a massive counter-trend rally that may begin as early as the next 2-3 weeks. Nonetheless, we’ll cross that bridge when we arrive and in the meantime, continue to keep readers of Global Coin Report apprised of the technical landscape and what may be in store ahead. 6/27/18″

Now that we’re off and running and the party has commenced, let’s take a look at the Charts to see what may be in store as we move forward.

As we can observe from the Daily chart above, we can see that BTC has gone top-side of the neckline (white horizontal line) located at the 6900 level, a level that we have attempted to direct readers attention to for some time as being a potentially critical inflection point.

In addition, we can also see that BTC not only cleared the 6900 level but did so with ease and conviction. Furthermore, BTC now finds itself trading above both its 20 (yellow line) as well as its 50 (blue line) day moving averages, which portrays a favorable technical posture from both a short and intermediate-term duration. Although BTC remains well below its 200 SMA (red line) on the daily time-frame and requires further work, such business is for another day.

Nevertheless, both the short and intermediate-term time-frames are both constructive and encouraging from a technical standpoint.

Moving out to the Weekly time-frame below, we can witness that BTC is presently trading beneath both its 4WK (yellow line) as well as its 10WK (blue line) moving averages, yet appears set to test its 4WK moving average in the not too distant future. Whether it is able to clear and recapture the hurdle, requires further monitoring.

Needless to say, the recent action of BTC, as well as the entire cryptocurrency space, has been a welcome relief and while we’re not certain as to whether the recent lows (5700) prove to be “A Bottom” or “The Bottom” is rather premature to declare just yet.

With that in mind, both investors/traders may want to utilize the following levels as a guide as well as evidence/clues with respect to direction moving forward.

Based purely on the inverted H&S pattern, the measured move for BTC suggests a price objective in the 7800-8000 zone. While the move can certainly overshoot or come-up a tad light, we’ll have to await further cards from the deck to be revealed.

Nonetheless, if, at any time in the days ahead, BTC can clear the large volume red bar high of 6/10/18 located at the 7500 figure, such accomplishment, should it materialize, would likely trigger the next move into higher ground into the noted 7800-8000 zone. On the flip-side of the coin, previous resistance at the 6800-6900 zone should now provide for durable support.

While both investors/traders patience and perseverance have certainly been put through the test throughout this long arduous bear market of the past 6-7 months, embrace the present rally as it’s been well overdue and deserving for those who have endured.

Happy Trading~

3 Cryptocurrencies Most Likely to Follow Bitcoin’s Performance

For more than a year, the cryptocurrency market has been dominated by bearish influence, with most coins seeing constant drops, or stagnation, at best. This all changed in the past few months, starting with Bitcoin which once again started leading the market up, bringing one minor rally after another.

BTC itself experienced massive losses in 2018, with its price going down by around 84%. Most other coins among the top 10 mirrored its performance, and some of them experienced even greater losses. However, now that Bitcoin sees gains again, these cryptocurrencies are still following its example, and many of them have seen massive breakouts. Some of the more notable altcoins that followed Bitcoin’s recent example are Ethereum (ETH), Stellar (XLM), and Cardano (ADA).

Ethereum performance mirroring Bitcoin’s price

As mentioned, Bitcoin led every rally so far, but before it did, its price first went through what is known as an ascending triangle pattern. The pattern held for around five months, which is exceptionally long for the crypto world. However, once the pattern was finally broken — the coin’s price skyrocketed, more than doubling itself within only two months.

One thing to note is that Ethereum performed in pretty much the same fashion. After five months of struggle and confusion for investors, the second largest cryptocurrency also managed to break the pattern and skyrocket as well. It…

4 Reasons Why the New Bitcoin Rally Is Unlikely to Stop Now

After more than a year of declining prices, the crypto market is finally seeing a period of serious recovery — one that has already brought digital currencies to heights not seen in over half a year now.

Only days ago, Bitcoin surged past several major resistance levels and managed to exceed its yearly high of over $8,000. Already, many skeptics are predicting the soon end of the bull run, and the possibility of yet another sharp decline. However, there are signs that suggest otherwise — that this bull run is only getting started, and that it will not end anytime soon.

There are four reasons why this is the case, and they are as follows:

1) Bakkt

There is the long-awaited Bitcoin futures exchange, Bakkt, which recently announced that the July test date for Bitcoin futures is soon to be set. Bakkt’s launch was delayed multiple times already, so the announcement came as quite a surprise. However, it appears that it will happen quite soon, after all.

As soon as its arrival becomes a certainty, Bitcoin will likely skyrocket even further, just like gold did when gold ETF appeared in 2013.

2) Bitcoin completely ignored the hacking of Binance

Binance has been the largest crypto exchange by trading volume for a while now, and as such, many expected that, if anything were to happen to it, Bitcoin…

The crypto market’s recovery progresses further, and at a rapid pace, at that. Bitcoin has just surpassed the $8,000 mark, which is the first time its price has been that high since July of last year. In addition, the entire crypto market is making billions within hours.

Bitcoin (BTC) sees another serious surge

In the past 24 hours, the total crypto market cap has gone up by around $24 billion. Meanwhile, BTC price has grown by $1,000 within the same period, as the largest coin traded barely above $7,000 on early Monday. At the time of writing, the coin’s price sits at $8.014.31, with a 14% growth in the last 24 hours. Meanwhile, the BTC market cap has gone up to $141.85 billion, and even the coin’s trading volume surged to over $31 billion.

While many are wondering whether this is a return to the massive heights seen back in 2017 or only a temporary surge which will soon see a correction — no signs of an upcoming decline have been noticed as of yet. In fact, new heights were made and then exceeded multiple times in the past week, with a massive 33% gain during that time. And, with Bitcoin’s dominance at 60%, many are expecting that massive altcoin surges are to be expected as well.

The growth of altcoins can already be seen, as Bitcoin
