The tea-leaves may be turning again for Bitcoin. Chart patterns and measures of momentum are hinting at support just as the latest swoon by the largest cryptocurrency heightens apprehension among speculators and true-believers.

Technical indicators may be well suited to projecting buy and sell signals for digital assets, because they trade on limited fundamentals and are susceptible to animal spirits, as the 2017 mania that saw Bitcoin’s market value jump from less than $1,000 to nearly $20,000 proved.

Bitcoin repeatedly tested levels near $6,000 this year, only to recover each time. On Tuesday, it dropped as low as $5,887. Meanwhile, the GTI Global Strength Indicator also proved prescient, issuing a sell-warning on July 30, just as a rally petered out -- it’s now flashing a buy signal.


While some traders have written Bitcoin off as last year’s news, enthusiasts believe the blockchain technology will shine through and that 2018’s drop is just a correction in the rally. Under the HODL banner, they encourage a buy-and-hold strategy, pointing to the fact that it previously dropped as much as 90 percent only to recover.

Ether way, it should be a white-knuckle ride.

The support at 6,000$ mark has been tested for repeatedly 5 days till now but Bitcoin is holding itself strong on 6,200$ mark after falling to 5,800$ for once. I don't think the investors will let it fall below that and it will end the year within 6k level. Hopefully, next year will be full of surprises for Bitcoin with many more news to come.

Right now, both Bitcoin and Altcoin market is showing a stagnant state, and if we go through wave's theory then it might prove to be the calm before the storm for the market. Since, according to wave's 5th wave the volume of bitcoin will slowly keep reducing before throwing it to a bullish trend in the future.
