Bitcoin Correction Was Sharp but (Too?) Short-Lived

Bitcoin fell sharply a few days ago, just hours after we warned of this likelihood in the last column.  The fall was dramatic but stopped much sooner than I expected.  I have spent the past few days looking for either a sign the fall was about to resume, or that the bull market would resume instead.

First, I note that the 2-hour chart shows a bear setup as follows:

After a long rally from the swing low, the market fell sharply upon reaching THE END OF THE 4TH SQUARE IN TIME. It found support precisely at the 2×1 Gann angle and the bottom of the 2nd square.

That support would be found there would not be a great surprise, but still, it seems “not enough” of a correction.  I have been waiting for the next shoe to drop, but to date that hasn’t happened. Instead, the same 2-hour chart has a bull setup as shown below:

With a successful close above the 2nd arc it seems that the rally is likely to resume for a bit longer at least. The next resistance on this short term setup is ~ $1030.

However, there is the possibility of a trap lurking.  Look at this 4 hour chart:

The pink line is the “1 line” from a pitchfork.  It is very close to the (red) 1×2 Gann angle, and they are both very close to the current position of pricetime.  Further, the vertical red dotted line is warning that this is a moment in time something might be expected to happen (an energetic point in time, so to speak). This is not a guarantee of anything of course.  Price might successfully get through the resistance.  But it could also be a trap.  Caveat emptor…

Happy trading!
