You really can't see the possibility?



i can see the possibility, but you have to admit.....this rally has much stronger momentum, and has retraced much further, than the the midsummer 2014 bull trap you're comparing to. the comparison is a bit of a stretch. and if this consolidates at $10k and legs up again, the comparison will look even more outlandish.

i did close longs and sold some spot coins into the $13,880 leg but i'm looking for reentry. just waiting for bulls to show some life first. with a trend this strong (and we're still seeing all higher highs and higher lows) it makes sense to keep betting the trend rather than trying to be contrarian and call the top.

Yes more momentum. More market players, things play out over much longer timescales now the market is bigger.

It's totally not trading advice, just want to look one of the cool trader kids on the internet and be able to say "told ya so". Thats what it's all about right? Wink

I'm of the opinion we will NEVER fall below the BLACK 200-MA in this 2-Day TF on the way up and the Blue 100-MA in the 2-Day will continually act as SOLID support on the way up to a buying climax by end of 2021.  I'm anticipating a year of consolidation in 2022; similar to the year of distribution we had in 2014 and 2018.  We will fall below the 200-MA in the 2-Day once we enter into another year of distribution.

The BLUE 100-MA in the 2-Day is already at $5,390 and climbing.  It will continue to climb even as the price action falls.  By the time they meet one another, we can anticipate the 100-MA to be much higher than it is currently.  A long term bull trend has set in.  Supply on retail exchanges is steadily decreasing while demand is increasing.  

We are about to have a golden cross of the Blue 100-MA crossing up and over the Black 200-MA in the 2-Day.  EVERY TIME in history this has occurred, it has sealed the deal for a legitimate bull market in play with the 100-MA in the 2-Day acting as SOLID support until we fall into a year of distribution.

The Blue 100-MA in the Weekly is currently at $7,049.  It "should" act as solid support on the way up in this Bull Trend.  It's a good possibility we may never see below $7,000 again.  Be Black 200-MA in the Weekly is approximately $4,000.  I'm quite confident we don't come anywhere near the Black 200-MA in the Weekly again until we fall into another year of distribution similar to 2014 and 2018.

..., and this capitulation never felt like a real capitulation compared to the one in 2015.

This is not true. They were quite similar. But is normal that cant be alike. Price dropped almost the same % from ATH.  Bottom was reached at exactly the same time after the hash rate drop.  Yes that this bottom happened few months earlier.  Yes that you felt different, since you lived one already and you are financially way better situated then back then. Whoever is still waiting for bottom is delusional. In upcoming years we will reach new ATH and after that bottom that will be most likely higher then last ATH. I am pretty much sure we will not see under $10000 BTC in 2020 and after. Not sure, since is hard to be sure in Bitcoin, but pretty sure.  

You really can't see the possibility?



Nope, we are less then a year away from halving. Hash rate is making new ATHs. So as active wallets and number of transactions. It is way to late for a bottom now.

impossible unless bitcoin is heading to zero. why would whales kill their golden goose? and on top of that lose their power to deeper pockets who would be buying all the way down? there might not even be enough coins to borrow to short at those levels. price would have to be blatantly manipulated to those levels which would in essence kill all the credibility in bitcoin. its not going to happen, bitcoin has come to far in ten years to implode.

we haven't even formed a structural lower low yet. let the market take out the $7500 pivot before declaring victory---at the very least. hell, we're still above where you said the top would be! Tongue

if we dump below the june 4th low and the weekly 20ma, i'll concede there may be something to your theory. until then it's just hope.

That's right! The specifics are always subject to randomness. When you have binance flooding market with Tether funny things happen to BTC price Wink

Multi year trend forecasts take time to play out though, and in the short term people can become ever so confused about the big picture. Most people still haven't figured out what BitCoin is!

In your chart, 2019 is a bull trap. This is technically still a possibility as long as we don't break the 2017 ATH. But you have to admit, the 2014 bull trap was much weaker in terms of momentum and range, right? Do you have any method to gauge the strength of this move to determine if it's not a bull trap? Or are you just waiting for a binary outcome, either new ATH or doom?

It's true that bears are up against the Tether Printer. I don't like betting against the Tether Printer. Tongue

Hi extasie, yes it could be considered a bull trap - certainly the way the social media's reacted it was as if these people had never seen how markets work!

WRT momentum range - I explained (perhaps badly) how I thought it worked. In essence the market is much bigger now, with many more participants, and so the crowd behaviour plays out over a longer timescale (I had a 2.83 multiplier loosely based on mapping the first bounce at $6k to the bounce at $380 following the box $1200 ATH)

So thats why this move up from ~3500 to ~14000 is bigger, and longer (around 3x). Also why any following downtrend would also be longer. In the post I linked above ~2 years vs 220days in the post-gox consolidation.

Having said all that, its no secret that I think BTC has screwed the pooch and so in actual fact there will be no recovery after those 2 years, just slow death. I say slow, things could happen that may accelerate that, but nobody really believes CSW has a million BTC he is going to sell in order to fund charitable causes, because the Aussie man is bad right?

In fact as things become ever clearer over the next 2 years (which under normal circumstances would just be an "accumulation phase") people will wake up to the reality of what has happened to BTC. I don't really care to explain that for the umpteenth time because I when something is inevitable it doesn't really matter what is said. The true BTCleivers aren't about to change their mind any time soon Smiley It's the next wave of entrants that will be the deciding force in the marketplace, and that wave will enter because of utility (as it was always so). They won't have any longstanding BTC bias that clouds their judgement they will just see easy p2p cash, a plethora of BSV backed services on metanet, and in many cases they will use it without even realising it.

"Speculative mania phases on the s-curve of adoption." I been saying this for literally years. I'm not the only one that has figured this out.

The s-curve *requires* adoption.

BTC has the greatest population so the bias is for it to continue as the main crypto choice, it will take alot for people to jump the tracks and be on another blockchain for everything and theres be lots of times previous when people join with an alt coin but end up holding BTC.    I agree that whatever offers the greatest utility and efficiency is the likely successor but a large part of that is going to be stability I suppose and as the longest blockchain apparently BTC has advantages that keep helping it to stay up.   I thought its $30 fees was the end whatever the price then tbh, if they forget the common people I dont think BTC will last out the fight.

Anyway its getting hard to be bearish at present, its exceeded 8 day average just wandering through.   The weekly is still a good ski slope, but I dont know it wont just break this trend and head to the last good daily trend at 12,000 with 50 day 10500 or so.    9000 would appear to be the support it needs to break for a proper sell

I hope and believe that Sgbetts btc prediction will come true inorder to progress this status quo caused by centralized entities like Binance (China) and CMC (Goldman/CIA) and other regulatory instruments like those pesky futures that no one in the field asked for, it was all mana from above.

The fact of the matter is that BTC is infested with power players from the Ancient Regime and military industrial/saudi complex and a satisfactory evolution would be wholesale adoption by the global populus of prime altcoins or even a completely new chain perhaps AI based, that can even this highly unbalanced power field between citizenry and elite that are moving towards some demi godhood soon.

I look at this forum and see people talk poorly of altcoins and the outcome of true power decentralization of finance. These are Kingmakers, and would well to fit in medieval castles as feudal lords, there are austrian guilds and royalist political parties you can join to serve this cause and they dress the part too, but don't reinvent this flawed ideology here simply because your stock full of BTC since 2012 on 100 000% green. We have already seen what happens when a few gain perversive profits, I for one can definitely do without entities like craig wright that are spamming the media landscape using professional agencies with his dragon size piled of BTC treasure. that he is converting to a pile of dragon sized excrement courtesy of non prescence of any other form of talent than flaking into BTC with timing and placement a decade ago and then descending into a tornado of lunacy like some Roman Imperator. Truly scary stuff to witness the backwaters of human history in its entirety reflected in crypto sphere.

It is moving either towards a neo feudal realm, or progressive sovereignity for vast amounts of people, I choose the latter and frankly am repulsed by any other trajectory for this nascent tech.

Ultimately I belive that the power players behind BTC has already attained escape velocity, in combination with a stupified citizenry that are basically voluntaring to place the chains and bonds on their limbs by inaction and continued support of fiat infinitum.

My only regret is that I didn't shovel $50k into ETH in 2015 and cashed in $50 million two years later. I would use them to build a counter party/army at this stage. It will be needed if this cycle isn't broken soon enough. There has never been a better candidate for civil conflict than crypto, I have been saying it for years.

This singular BTC worship and blind greed will have dire effects, you will have your gains but leave a wasteland behind for the new generations. In a religious context, BTC - causa prima, is the face of the antichrist proper.

You would never have been able to do this. ETH has no liquidity, the market float is laughably thin. Just trying to liquidate 1000 ETH on a single exchange would crash it down to cents.

There have been supposed ETH OTC services but maybe they were created to give a false sense of hope. ETH certainly seems to specialise in clearing out exchange order books like nothing else.

I use litecoin everytime I need to buy something and find gatekeepers along the way. I dont use bitcoin for payments, lest I regret it. Bitcoin is a reserve currency for many, we only experiment with alts because its not good to short bitcoin.

it's not 2014 anymore. the altcoin markets are much more liquid than that. if you sold 1000 ETH on coinbase right now, you'd crash the price a whopping $2 down to $220. Wink

in hindsight, the easiest way to get ETH liquidity back then was to participate in the ICO. but if you wanted to put $50k into ETH in 2015, you had 5 months and ample volume to accumulate a position from august-december. easy as cake, if you just had the foresight to be bullish at the time.
