As the bear market in the cryptocurrency complex rolls on with seemingly inexhaustible selling pressure, it is natural for traders to try and look for technical signals of a bottom before a bottom is actually made.

As we take a close look at the charts for Bitcoin (BTC) and Bitcoin Cash (BCH), it’s important to keep this in mind. As technicians often note, “The trend is your friend, until the end, when it bends.”

This is not meant to be mysterious for the sake of being mysterious. While many things can be counterintuitive in the world of technical analysis, in this case, the picture is relatively straightforward.

Bitcoin (BTC)

Price Analysis

  • High: $6253.7
  • Low: $5898.3
  • 24-Hour Volume: $4.55B
  • 7-day Percent Change: -14.29%

As noted above, the action right now is defined as a bear market context. Indicators and the Bitocin price have rolled over. Coins are trading below major moving averages. And volume is starting to rise on the downside as levels are taken out.

Bitcoin (BTC) has managed to avoid taking out most of its major levels so far, with the $6000 level only taken out last night.

At this point, all eyes are going to be fixated on the $5800 level as a last-ditch support before we start logging new 2018 lows.

Because the retail public and most financial media outlets all focus on the Bitcoin price as being the defining central point of the cryptocurrency complex, new 2018 year-to-date lows may spur some headlines that create the possibility of a self-reinforcing feedback loop of demoralization.

While that sounds like an awful outcome, it may, in fact, be the best thing that could happen right now. It’s important that we shake out the weak hands in coins like BTC and find a new base of support before moving higher so the next rally isn’t a false one.

Bitcoin Cash (BCH)

Price Analysis

  • High: $531.29
  • Low: $474.37
  • 24-Hour Volume: $407.69M
  • 7-day Percent Change: -28.78%

Bitcoin Cash (BCH) had been a clear point of relative strength, forging a bullish ascending triangle (that never triggered) and showing extra gusto during the spiking rallies recorded last month.

However, since then, we’ve seen a series of sloped and lateral support levels broken with ease like a hot knife slicing through butter. Bitcoin Cash (BCH) has become a point of relative weakness during this decline that has lasted over the past couple of weeks.

As should be clear on the chart above, the April lows are now toasted. All eyes will start to fixate far below the $300 level as the important line in the sand if current weakness persists in BCH.

Happy Trading~

When one thinks about the social media landscape, the companies that first come to mind are most likely Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Snapchat.  These platforms are a great way to stay connected with friends, families, and colleagues, especially when geographic distance is a factor.  But, in addition to just chatting about life in general and sharing pictures, social media can be used to bridge the information gap that exists within the investment community.

Over the last decade, many trading offices have been established in large cities all over the world which allow solo traders and investors to pay a monthly fee in exchange for a workspace.  The real benefit to trading in these offices is to participate in the free flow of trading ideas and information.  Proprietary trading is one of the most challenging careers to be successful at and the exchange of ideas is almost required in order to succeed.  Traders at hedge funds and investment banks work in teams so why shouldn’t remote traders?

While these trading offices are a great way to help bridge the information gap, Aluna.Social may provide an even better way, especially as it relates to cryptocurrency trading.

Mission Statement

Aluna.Social, founded by Alvin Lee and Henrique Matias, is a multi-exchange social trading terminal for crypto traders and investors.  The goal of the platform is to help newcomers shorten their learning curve,…
