For now I'm . Still looking at 15 min and 1 hour structure and , I'll sell if things look to bad, but I think we go up from here in the next days/weeks.
Looking at every support and resistances as we break them 1 by 1 (6.5-6600 got blasted and held, 7-7100 got blasted and held, 7500-7600 got blasted and is being tested as I type).
Some people (MacAfee :D) waited a long time for this and they are pouring their money in BTC at a discount. The normies will come buy and created a bubble when we get to 100k (probably before that too) and we will sell and then short lever *5 again.
Doubled up my Kraken account in 4 days and I was very conservative ad careful just going bit by bit.
During the climb up it's possible to profit from the volatily, sell when is too high then buy back on support, rince and repeat, if you're not exhausted from the past days.
For me now is the time to celebrate victory and catch some sleep as my buys grow in value ( BTC and NEO). I have alerts ready in case a support doesn't hold for some reason.
"Crypto isn't predictable", good one!
I predicted a dip to 6k the 6 february exactly, several weeks ago.
I linked a screenshot of me sayign so to show how smart I am :D
I put down an order at 7512 on Kraken I hope it fills, as we get closer and closer to 50 RSI I'll be watching closely.
I almost ran out of cash to buy I used 80% of my cash on my Kraken account to buy Bitcoin and 20% to buy more on *5 leverage.
We are also getting close to the trendline that started forming since the bump on 5800 earlier.
I'm scared but I keep buying more. Still way in the green since I entered that long mostly around 6800. We can dip and I lose 1% on 30% of what I got but gain 5% on 70%. Hopefully we go test 10.5k and after that 13k (big hard resistance btw breaking it would mean ALOT but i'm not counting on it, if we do woohoo free money).
There's a trendline on the 15 min rsi. Anyone that didn't buy on 7500 support, it's too late now :D God see what happens at 8k.
I don't know how to publish a chart in an update but the trendline on the 15 min rsi is easy anyway.
As we are consolidating it's a better time to buy than when we are spiking hard full green.
Looking at the 4H chart we're actually consolidating now, finally. It doesn't seem like we're going to significantly pullback before going back up.
Pullback to 7k or stay on 7.5k? We'll see.
Looking at the volumes on the 4H chart compared to last days before the dump is ridiculous. The bars are so much bigger. And the pullback happening has tiny volume too.
The inside bar range (coinbase) is 7820 - 7460 and the mother bar range is 7869 - 7440.
Break above the mother bar and I believe we will go straight to 8500 without even stopping at 8k.
7300: 0.5 retrace
7200: 0.618 retrace
6800: full retrace
Would have prefered this happens higher but it had to be now.
I better make a huge profit on this, with lal this sleep I missed.
Last time I didn't sleep like this was friday + last night and double my Kraken account then, so it is worth it :)
"The most significant Fibonacci retracement level to watch for is the 0.618. This is the inverse of the golden ratio, 1.618 or phi. The 0.618 retracement level tends to be the maximum pullback zone where fear climaxes as the final sellers throw in the towel and bargain hunters rush into the stock to resume the uptrend."
I'm looking at the 15 min timeframe to make sure I stay in the green but on the longer time period,the 4H the important retracements since the dip at 5800 are 0.382: ~7200 (which just happened) and the legendary golden ratio 0.618 which is at 6800.
I'm hoping 0.382 holds. For me 0.618 if we get there will be an awesome place to buy (again).
Could be a while of staying in the same area till we go back up.
Well I was still holding on my secondary account that is on binance so I didn't totally miss...
Looking to rebuy in on my main account on the next pullback.
If we reject 8500 the pullback since climbing from ~7200 could be to 7600 (0.618 fibo), or it could be higher, I'll look at indicators in particular rsi, but I think I just buy on every fibo level and see where it goes.
Good thing I know we get a pullback so I can rebuy at that moment.
As every one that was doubting is starting to get convinced we're not going down any more, I don't think we will pullback very much.
I will buy on 0.382 fib and I hope it goes that low.
That should take more than one hour.
I will not buy before that.
The lower we are the better. I hope we get to 0.5 or 0.618 in 1 to a couple of hours I would be much more confortable buying on 0.618 than 0.382.
Starting buying small amounts just in case.
Target 9200 (which is where we dropped hard a few weeks ago).
I expect another pullback if/when we get there.
And then time to reassess. Might go test 10k after.
My tiny buys ended up being 30% of my account (less than 10% used to buy on leverage *5 easier for me to track my profit/loss this way).
This is one reason why:
I guess next strong level is 7600.
I'll lose a hundred or so if I lose or whatever if I win I make thousands lol.
No problem I have a solution for that, I know a great site that sells ropes.
Can't always place my orders in advance, sometimes I guess you have to use market orders.
Well, let's see where we go from here, it's not sure we are going up, maybe just a small oversold bounce or something.
Maybe we'll go down to 7800 or 7600, maybe we go down touch my order and then spike up.
Maybe I should set moar orders.
Falling wedges break bullish about 2/3 of the time
We were on a support in this case thought, so it's different.
If we're at the lower line and it is intersected with a support, I wouldn't call that very aggressive thought.
Set some orders at 7500-7600.
Started re-buying as we touched 7600 (Kraken).
Got some more orders waiting in the 7500-7600 range.
If we fall below 7500 (not just a fat fingers flash dip) I'll cut my losses and be looking to buy at 7200.
The 7500-7600 area proved itself as a support and it's also the 0.382 retrace since we bounced on 5800 2 days ago.
How hard the bounce will be, that remains to be seen, but I don't believe in going lower on Bitcoin untill I have clear signals that it will happen.
Wouldn't be suprised we go back to 6900 and I can buy some cheap Bitcoins once again, but going test 5800 again? I would be amazed.
If we go further down the 1H rsi will start getting closer to 30 and even go below that so ...
Once we break 7800 I guess my stop loss will be that.
Which would be "cutting my losses" at 3.3% profit.
I hope it goes above at least a little, please :( 5% on this would be nice.
And then after to 7200 to cool off things and at that point we can make big gains.
A third part of me is bored and want to go take shittrades on shitcoins on binance.
I only use this site because it's full of noobs and I can increase my odds with it...
Well I bought 50$ cheaper because Kraken went too low but the serious exchange, Bitfinex, hadn't yet reached the 0.618 retrace, so what I lost because the site sucks, I made also because the site sucks.
I'll make a post about that I think.
Hope we go to 7200 now. Choo chooo!
Right now what's happening is boooring. Actually I feel this is good, everything is cool off we're not overbought anymore the volume dropped we're all consolidated without having pulled back below 7500 which is awesome
I was afraid we pull back some more (we went from 7900 to 7500 so 5% pullback but that's nothing to us), I hope we don't pullback yet. This should last for a couple of hours, then it will go in a direction hopefully up :D
Am I dreaming or does BTC always move at around 5 am GMT? That's in a few hours. I won't sleep until Bitcoin has moved because I need to be quick if we go down so I can sell and buy some more lower.
Obviously at some point what Europe thinks is going to matter, and if people here start buying too that thing is going to grow!
The euro market is still small compared to what it could be: https://thumbor.forbes.com/thumbor/960x0/smart/https%3A%2F%2Fblogs-images.forbes.com%2Felaineramirez%2Ffiles%2F2018%2F01%2F1.jpg%3Fwidth%3D960

I want to go to bed, but Asia is going to wake up and what are they going to do? See reversal and pour money in? Or something else?
So 6k possible, anything is possible, but I'm not even considering it unless we lose 7k support and if that happens I sell everything I got.
- Big news on what South Korea, the USA and China want to do. Today we saw from the USA that they don't want to ban crypto they see it as something legit, and that's what every one was waiting for. South Korea keeps spreading bad news, and then some of them got caught red handed buy Bitcoin at a discount after dropping bad news (I don't know all the story but I think this is what it is), then there is China... I read they were banning ICO's, and then I read they were supporting ICO's after all...
- Big news about Tether. If the "manipulative people that make billions off of manipulating Bitcoin price" don't have the 2-3 billions to support their currency (ye that makes sense) we could see some panic selling, and a great opportunity to buy the dip. Even if there's bad news it can't be as bad as the conspiracy looneys make it, since IT IS CONTRADICTORY!
- Huge fundamental change. Vitalik comes up with a new revolutionary idea that changes the game and BTC can't compete. Something like that.
- Alien invasion? North Korea nuclear war?
After that we bounce but idk how far. 100k seems crazy, I have no idea if and when we get that high.
Poor gold keeps losing value as btc goes up. If BTC stays how it is and all the young people put their money in (while old people pass away) + the people moving their money away from gold into crypto sure it could go far.
That's too many ifs for me.
