Looking at the chart, we can see another positive sign, as LTC has broken above the 50 (in orange) again, and that's something I want to talk about. You can see that BTC is beginning to breach the 50 more frequently. This is decreasing the recent resistiveness of that level, so perhaps we will stay above it this time. I want to stress, however, (for educational purposes only) that we should never ever trade a pattern, until we actually see the breakout! A breakout above the dotted black neckline is required, to complete the pattern. The vertical dotted black represents the target area of a rally equal to the full potential of the pattern. In other words, a breakout of the pattern will likely result in a breakout above the (in blue.) Speaking of the , you've probably noticed that I've modified it a bit. It now contacts the high made on 1/6/18 exactly, instead of intersecting it. I've always planned on making this adjustment, when the time was necessary. The old version of the channel contacted the high made on 1/14/18 instead, and it came into play with previous price action a bit more. However, it's best to avoid intersecting price action, when analyzing channels. That's why I have made this adjustment.
We're still working under a huge on the , and we've just crossed over above the zero line. If you look at the recent , it's also mostly composed of green bars, which confirms the momentum and the return of the bulls. The question now is, can the bulls follow through? A breakout above the black dotted neckline, and ideally above the , will confirm the follow through. A failure, and subsequent decline, will be cause to reassess the development of this chart. Keep in mind, that patterns can occasionally retest the right shoulder. We are in a critical area right now, so we will have to watch closely to see how things develop. Good luck trading, everyone!
