Bitcoin Price Intraday Analysis: BTC/USD Confirms Bull Trap

Bitcoin price


The Bitcoin-to-dollar exchange rate on Tuesday dropped 1.69 percent from 6734-fiat to 6620-fiat after confirming a bull trap.

The current market volume is lower than expected to excite a steady upside – even downside. In our previous analysis, we had stated that a breakout would be confirmed once we climb over September 5 high. BTC/USD managed to test the level in yesterday’s upside action but didn’t see as many open long positions as closed ones. That said, 6734-fiat is already a level to watch out for to confirm a short-term break towards September high.

Bitcoin, meanwhile, seems to have found a bottom as predicted by the many institutional investors last week. The lack of a substantial volume upside is matched equally by an absence of bears. So far, the market has seen big players hinting their long positions by entering somewhere above the $6,000-mark. Incidentally, the level signifies a breakeven return of investment for miners, a network of machines running the Bitcoin network after investing sums in high-end mining machines, space, and electricity.

On daily charts, BTC/USD is still attempting a steady breakout but ends up in a bull trap signal on every jump. The yesterday’s upside closed below resistance and formed a red candle, indicating a false breakout signal. The pair’s upside is capped by a medium-term descending trendline (adjusted after the recent growth) and an equally persistent rising trendline is providing the support.

The fundamentals and technicals collaborate to offer a medium-term bullish bias. In the meantime, day traders are getting enough intrarange opportunities to enter/exit their positions on minor profits.

BTC/USD Intraday Analysis

On 15m charts, BTC/USD is attempting to close above 61.8% Fibonacci level of the last swing from 6548-low to 6712-high. Targeting the falling descending trendline our primary upside, we will initially open a long position towards the 50H SMA coinciding with 6651-fiat while maintaining a stop loss order just 3-pips below the entry level. It should get us some decent profits with minimal risk.

Looking the other side, we might be looking at a Head & Shoulder formation where the price would target 6586-fiat as the neckline. That said, a close below the previous low could have us enter a short towards 6586-fiat. At the same time, we will open a stop loss order above our entry position – 3-pips will be enough to minimize our risks.

Bitcoin Sinks Below $3,200 as Teenage Bitcoin Millionaire Says Its Dead

It’s yet another dark day for Bitcoin. In fact, it’s the darkest one this year. The currency has once again set a new low for the year. At press time, the currency was trading at $3,230, down 10 percent in just 24 hours. The currency was performing especially poorly on some markets such as BitMEX, Coinbase Pro and Bitstamp where it was trading at $3,180. Since the week began, Bitcoin has lost close to $500. The currency’s immediate future looks bleak, especially given that it’s entering the weekend. Historically, cryptos have performed very poorly during weekends. With the currency sinking further and further for the year, one investor who made millions through Bitcoin has further added fuel to the fire. According to Erik Finman, the currency is dead. Finman made millions by investing in Bitcoin back in 2011 when only a few investors knew of the currency. However, according to him, the currency could have a few more bull runs but in the long term, it’s dead. Bitcoin Could Test the $3,000 Level Bitcoin hasn’t been for the faint hearted this year. It has tested various support levels and come up short. The $6,000 level seemed strong for quite some time, but even that came up short. And now, the currency seems poised to test the $3,000 level. In just the past one month, Bitcoin has halved in value. The assault had seemed to begin a reversal days ago when it hit $3,700 on some markets, but the bears seem to be in control of the market movements. On most markets, the father of crypto was trading just above $3,200. HitBTC continues to be one of the most friendly markets, with the price standing at $3,318. However, on American exchanges, the currency continues to perform dismally with Coinbase, Kraken and Gemini all trading at $3,180. Bitcoin could test the $3,000 level soon, with the current market making many investors frantic and eager to sell. The current sellout is the largest since July when the currency lost $3,000 in weeks causing traders to panic. With the weekend kicking off, it could drop further. Whether the currency can bounce back will largely depend on its ability to stay above the $3,000 support level. Bitcoin Is Dead – Teenage Millionaire As if the current turmoil isn’t enough for investors, a teenage Bitcoin millionaire has some more devastating news. According to Erik Finman, Bitcoin is dead. Finman believes that while it may not be immediate, it will slowly ebb away. He told MarketWatch: Bitcoin is dead, it’s too fragmented, there’s tons of infighting I just don’t think it will last. It may have a bull market or two left in it, but long-term, its dead. Finman began investing in Bitcoin in 2011 using money gifted to him by his grandmother. The early adopter grabbed the headlines last year after he turned his $1,000 investment into a $4 million fortune. However, he believes that those investors that are out to make millions as he did will lose their investment. And it’s not just Bitcoin. Finman believes that the future is even bleaker for Litecoin, the ‘silver to Bitcoin’s gold’. The currency is currently trading at $23, down 93 percent from its all-time high of $365. Litecoin has been dead for a while. It’s like when the sun is going down and there’s that eight minute period just before it goes dark. Litecoin is in its seventh minute.
