Bitcoin Extension Targets $26,000

The daily chart suggests that BTC began a bullish impulse (shown in white below) after the March 13 low and is currently in an extended third cycle wave. The wave count for this extended cycle wave is given in blue, with BTC currently in the fifth wave.

It previously seemed that this was a large corrective structure. However, the lack of rejection near the all-time high price and the consolidation that followed makes it more likely that this is a bullish impulse.

The most likely region for the fifth wave (blue) to end is found between $25,500-$26,300. The area is found by using a combination of Fib extensions:

  • 3.61 Fib extension of cycle wave 1 (white)
  • 4.61 Fib extension of wave 1 (blue)
  • 1.61 Fib extension of waves 1-3 (blue)

A closer look at wave 3 shows a completed sub-wave count (orange), which increases the possibility that this count is accurate.

Furthermore, sub-wave 5 is exactly 0.618 of sub-waves 1-3, a very common ratio when sub-wave 3 is extended.

Therefore, while wave 3 (blue) has most likely ended, it is not yet certain if BTC is now in wave 4 or it has already completed it.

Triangle Pattern or New Impulse?

One possible short-term count suggests that BTC has already begun wave 5 (blue).

The sub-wave count is highlighted in orange and shows that BTC has completed sub-wave 2 and is now increasing in what is likely sub-wave 3. The increase looks impulsive (highlighted in green), supporting this possibility.

However, there is one issue with this count. Wave 3 has been transpiring for more than two months, while wave 4 in this case is roughly one week (highlighted in red), a very unusual ratio between upward move and correction.

In any case, a decrease below the sub-wave 2 low at $17,569 would invalidate this particular wave count.

This possibility might fit better with the price movement, due to the underlying ratio previously outlined.

If correct, BTC is still in its fourth wave and trading inside a triangle. It’s currently in the final E sub-wave, after which an upward move would be expected.

Similarly, a decrease below $17,569 would invalidate this particular wave count, though the low is now taken from sub-wave C. An increase above the sub-wave B high at $19,927 would likely confirm that BTC is heading higher.

Conclusion

After a possible short-term drop, Bitcoin is expected to resume its upward movement and eventually reach a high between $25,500-$26,300.

A decrease below $17,569 would invalidate this scenario, while an increase above $19,927 would likely confirm it.
