Tracing the Current Trading Pattern
The price of BTC/USD
on BITFINEX was analyzed at two-hour intervals from May 10 to May 23 to trace the current trading pattern. Both BTC/USD and BTC/EUR are discussed in the final section.
On May 12, the price made a low of $6858.0. A gradual increase took it to a high of $8325.3 on May 16. Since then, the price has been decreasing inside a symmetrical triangle:
The resistance and support lines have been touched five and four times respectively. After last touching the resistance line on May 22, the price began dropping. At the time of writing, BTC was trading in the middle of the triangle.
Based on the pattern and the direction of the current move, it appears that BTC may soon reach the support line. At that time, a rebound to the resistance may also be likely.
To better assess possible future price fluctuations, the price of EOS is analyzed alongside the RSI and the MACD below:
Bearish divergencce is observed for both the RSI and MACD during mid May. Since the divergence developed, the price of BTC has roughly followed both the MACD and RSI.
This is especially evident between May 16 and 19. During this period, the price reached the support line while the MACD and RSI also fell. The drop was most significant in the RSI.
Furthermore, the price seems to have made a double top pattern on May 14-20. This is a bearish reversal pattern.
Together, these indicators suggest that price will drop to the support line before rebounding to the resistance. At that time, another drop could cause the price of BTC to breakdown from the trading pattern.
Price increases, however, may still occur even if we do not believe them likely. For that reason, we trace a support and resistance line for BTC/EUR (first graph) and BTC/USD (second graph) in the graph below:
The closest support area is found near $6000 and €5400. A breakdown from the current pattern is required for the price to reach this area. As stated above, we believe a breakdown is likely but not in the immediate future. Price should drop and rise before falling to this support if our earlier predictions are true.
The closest resistance area is found near $10000 and €8300. A breakout from the current pattern is required for the price to reach this area. We do not believe that this is likely in the short-term. However, these levels may be if the price makes a successful reversal after its breakdown.
