What Is Bitcoin (BTC) Really Up To?

Bitcoin (BTC) is trading within a large pennant that bears a strong resemblance to a similar pennant from 2014. The conditions are very much the same as well. Back then BTC/USD crashed hard and then started to rally from there. When the price started to rally after the first downtrend, most traders falsely assumed that the bear market had ended. The pump after the previous downtrend made traders even more complacent and when breakout time came, the majority was very surprised when BTC/USD declined more than 73% in another brutal downtrend. It is interesting how everything is the same this...

Bitcoin Bears Take Over As Bakkt Rally Fails

Bitcoin (BTC) has declined massively right after the Bakkt launch. It has finally broken below a key symmetrical triangle just when the majority of traders were hoping for a rally to the moon. This is nothing surprising considering smart investors buy the rumor and sell the news. Even though this has recently become something common in this market but that does not change the fact that the market pumps and dumps in the same manner every hype cycle. While the price did crash because big investors bought the rumor and sold the news, we need to realize that that’s not...

Ethereum (ETH) Breaks Above Falling Wedge But Fails To Push For Reversal

Ethereum (ETH) has failed to capitalize on its break out of the falling wedge. The price closed the 4H candle above the 50 EMA and then pierced through the trend line resistance on the next candle. However, it failed to push further and has now once again been reduced to sideways movement. The 4H chart for ETH/USD also shows that the price broke below a key descending triangle but it did not fall as hard because we had a falling wedge in place that limited its decline. At the moment, it has failed to break past the 21 EMA on...

Bitcoin (BTC) Bulls Glum As Bakkt Rally Fails, Price Breaks Symmetrical Triangle

Bitcoin (BTC) has broken below the symmetrical triangle that many of the bulls have been counting on for a sharp breakout to the upside around the Bakkt launch. We have now seen that Bakkt was a non-event and there has been no impact on the price so far. This has left a lot of traders glum and they might be selling their bags soon in anticipation of a strong correction to the downside as generally investors “buy the rumor and sell the news”. If that happens this time, then we might not only see BTC/USD decline to the bottom of...
