I look at what other people are doing once in awhile and access what I can learn and improve upon but generally just do my own thing. That being said..some charts are more accurate than others.


   ...one final question..you were looking at someone elses charts??


--------


I'm crawling in the hodlcave. Goodnight wall observers. xoxo

O'Queen. Of course the nice little puppy dogs would never ever hurt the big fluffy bunnies. ni-night.   Kiss

----------

So an interesting situation developing here.  So far since the 2017 peak, we have stuck faithfully to the 2014/15 fractal.  If we were to go up from here, it would suggest we were breaking up away from the fractal, at least temporarily.  Nothing to get too excited about, but worth watching.  We are certainly a bit ahead of schedule at the moment, which is consistent with traders attempting to front run the 2014/15 model. 



I have been wondering how to explain the price capping out at $5,300 and think I have my answer.  The price has run up to the 300 Day MA and is now sitting nicely in the middle of a channel between the 300 Day MA and the 200 Day MA.





jeez Hairy..that one chart..like raining meteorites down on us. buzz kill. now we have to worry about the 250sma...ffs

How does this play with your fractals theory Hairy? Are the markets being front run as savy investors gear up for the next mania phase? Genuinely interested in your thoughts or anyone elses on the matter.


--------

It seem fairly certain we will test the 0.236 fib in the near future as market dynamics and bitcoins halvening cycle come to terms with each other. So that begs the question..with the assumed value lets say $8k to $10k after next years halving, will the market move to continue capturing this overhead liquidity? If so then the 0.382 fib is not that far off...and from there a skip to the 0.5 and the psychological barrier of $10k
The 0.618 appears to be a likely support base to solidify before heading upwards towards further gainz. #dyor

To finish and take this crude model further..if the apparent market price of three to five thousands dollars holds true for this years valuation and we extrapolate a doubling in that price every four years to take into account for the halvenings..hmmmm..maybe some numbers to work with...I dunno. After 2020 10k+  after 2024 20k+  after 2028 40k+ median price of course..with spike out way to either side. You get the idea.
You have to start putting numbers and ideas out there right?
So we will see which way the dice falls and continue preparations for the $100k party in the late 2020s...maybe 2030?
We shall see.

I am throwing this up for Hairy, Toxic, fillippone and all - just in case it helps in the debate and helps in finding as many key points as possible to watch. Things to watch and check if the fractal is matching, going at the same pace, or not.  The actual price obviously cannot possibly fit exactly - but there has been a pattern and it's been too close to ignore.  A 4-year cycle, an 85% drop from the high, highs in December... we have all spotted it.  But what will tell us more; or bring up further thoughts that might lend an edge to guessing what's coming?

That so many have noted a pattern and want to track it means (as I said in my last long post) it is likely it will be front run and therefore the pattern will break...  Perhaps only in terms of its velocity, perhaps in totally breaking it - but there are numbers, markers, and time points along the way - so it must be possible to at least see how close it's running to pattern, or if it's diverging predictably, or just veering off.

Agreed.

Yes I think the fractal is being front run by a couple of months by traders trying to get an edge.  But they are probably being too greedy right now and have gotten ahead of themselves.  

If we break the fractal and break upwards, I am developing a theory that 2019/2020 will see a rerun of the 2013 double peak.  The 2015 fractal is conclusively front run and broken upwards, and then we coming screaming back down and Bitcoin is pronounced dead.  And then after Bitcoin is officially dead, we bounce parabolically upwards.  Please note, this secondary model is dependent on a massive price surge in 2019.  If we do not see a surge to $10k or above, then much less likely to eventuate.  

The chart below shows what I consider to be the more likely outcome, which is a reversion to the 2015 fractal.

Yes, that's pretty much what I envison as well, see a couple of posts above.
If so, and played right, there would be a potential to make a LOT of dough, first on the upside, then either sell or short (for super-risk takers), then re-load for the ultimate adventure.
2013 did almost a 100x in a year or slightly less.
The rough equivalent would be to go to 35-45K on the first peak, "crash" down to 7-9K, then up again to 160-200K.
Numbers are very approximate, and could be 50% of what is indicated.

I still like to compare our recent flat with late 2012-early 2013. Check it out.
Nothing, then a hockey stick. It might happen here as well.
If it does, we might form a local peak at 35-40K as early as in 3-4 months (from the start of the exponential move), or in 5-6 mo if it is a bit stretched out.

Hmmm interesting.  Would need to chart that.

The market has spoken.  

BSV is a classic shitcoin descending towards zero which will never regain its previous heights.  Some other shiny new shitcoin will come along and replace it as the "next Bitcoin". It has had its run.
Appeal to authority and generally irrelevant.

What the market has decided upon doesn't change the facts.

I don't think we disagree.  The market has decided (fact) that BSV has 1.7% the value of Bitcoin. 
The way you worded your post makes it seems as if you were implying that the market not buying a coin makes it technologically inferior. By that reasoning chart music would be the greatest musical accomplishment in all of human history and Amazon would be one of the greatest failures in the world of business.

The thing is that if any new coin just by being "technologically superior" (not the case of BSVlol) would *easily* replace Bitcoin then crypto (all of it) as a store of value would be RIP.

Yep - front running creating a false start is actually even 'likely' (given expectations).

An early rush going over 10k by autumn this year, lots of froth and fomo starting and then a pull back before EOY, just as the 'here we go' was kicking in.  

Then two runs makes sense, too

A fake run that fizzles before 'Moon' and baffles everyone.  Then a 'real run' becomes possible (and organic) after a few month's breather.  I can see that as a very plausible scenario.

Yes that would scare the pants off everyone, which is something Bitcoin delights in doing.  It becomes a real risk if we break up to $6k from here.  I would much rather a slow gentle climb - I don't want to see $6k right now.

Late, long thoughts - on the 'are we going faster?' subject:

we have all spotted it.  

That so many have noted a pattern and want to track it means (as I said in my last long post)

Well, it will maybe rhyme - but it cannot be quite the same.  And that's... as sure as honey badger not giving a shit.

It will be the mother of all bubbles ($300K+ possible).

..the crypto twitter/tradingview/bitcointalk seeming consensus of ~$90K-100K is overly conservative.

Keep in mind, if Bitcoin were Facebook, we'd still be at pre-IPO levels (circa 2009)

That b call Koreck.

One of those items on the latter list

There is no list, except you created your own list (aka demand)

would appear to be to provide a description of the core plan for dealing with the negative effects of full blocks. For you have yet to do so, despite your repeated false statements that you already have.

I described the BTC plan sufficiently for my own liking, and I am investing in bitcoin, in spite of peeps like you concluding that the BTC plan is not specific or clear or elaborate or "future proof" enough.

I am not investing into bcash variants, even though peeps like you believe that bcash variants have superior plans than BTC and are already ready to scale the fuck out of things with their 45 lane roads and much less than 1 lane of traffic....

In other words, a supposed plan that meets your 45 plus lanes specifications, does not cause a lot of folks to conclude that BTC is inferior to bcash variants, in spite of those bcash variants having supposed superior, specific, more clear & elaborate and "future proof"plans, as compared with BTC.

In other words, whatever BTC plan is there and whether I am able or know exactly what it is or explain it to your satisfaction remains good enough for me (and presumably a whole lot of others), so I am sticking with the babe that brought me to this dance... because she seems better than those other slimy sluts (aka bcash variants). 

Sounds good?

Logically and TA-based, yes, but how about the fuh-damentals?
Was there a model in Jan 2013 indicating that in April 2013 the price would be 1800% higher?
Absolutely not, yet it happened.

Where is your "leap of faith", HM?
Toxic2400 also drew something that might happen, plus or minus.

Personally, I am a bit bored with all models that draw neat bowl like movements projecting into 2023.
Where is the fury of the exponent of the adoption stick?
