By 4C Trading — 21/10/2019 :
This analysis is intended for swing traders or medium-term investors. As a reminder, swing trading is a strategy of speculation in financial markets where an asset is held only for a few days to take advantage of price fluctuations. In this analysis, which you will find every week, I will detail my vision of the market and more specifically the one of Bitcoin. In addition to a technical analysis, I will summarize 3/4 of the news that impacted the market.
Since last week, Bitcoin has followed our scenario number 1:
“The support of the 8300$ does not hold, it becomes resistance and we go back to testing the lowest in the range with the next support of 8060$.”
Thus, we continue to “range” between 7800$ and 8500$. This type of configuration corresponds to an accumulation. Ideally, based on our previous analyses, I would have preferred to see this in my turquoise blue rectangle between $7,000 and $7,600. Indeed, we would have been in my “ideal” consolidation zone for a very bullish recovery. Bitcoin has decided otherwise and having a bullish Bart in the coming days is still quite possible. For more information on this, do not hesitate to reread last week’s analysis, which includes this point.
But when will the next big move happen?
Only diviners can answer these kinds of questions but if I had to play the diviner I would tell you to be attentive to the Bitcoin movement around October 27th. This is the expiry date of 3-month futures contracts and experiments, each closure of these types of contracts has an impact on the evolution of the Bitcoin price.
At the moment, on a smaller horizon: 4h, Bitcoin is blocked on its resistance to 8300$ with a bearish GAP on futures contracts. Thus, for the next few hours I would be more bearish with a continuation of the BTC ranging in the medium term. I will wait until October 27th to place myself on the next trend according to the exit of the range, upwards or downwards.
