Bitcoin Price – Going Down

stock-price-down-down-webBitcoin Price is going down. The downside thrust of the move from $275 to $264 at the time of writing leaves no doubt that a continuing downtrend is in force. Hopes of a 3rd wave turnaround are alive up to 99.9% retracement of the week’s advance, but the outlook is becoming grim.

Bitstamp‘s feed to Tradingview remains unwell and BTC-China, the centralized exchange chart of choice shows the damage:

Price fell way from 1,690 CNY in a tumultuous collapse. 1,640 CNY was reached in 30 minutes of cynical short selling as traders keep capitulating a bearish preference for drawing profits from the Bitcoin price chart.

As mentioned yesterday, .89 retracement of the prior advance is a potential target for this decline. However, the same prior advance never thrust away from its lows in the manner that a reversal at market bottom does, so, for now, we turn our attention to the previous low at $255 (Bitstamp) and 1,578 CNY.

Below those levels, we have $200, and 1,200 CNY, which (surely) should prompt even the most dedicated followers of the Bearish Way to look up to the skies?

The structural damage is evident in this BitFinex 4-hour chart with Fibonacci Fan lines drawn from the post-previous high. Terrible dynamic. Short sell to $200 once price dips below $255.

Summary

Bitcoin price is selling off (in short selling, not abandon-ship investor fleeing) from $270 and 1,700 CNY.

The bears are capitulating the end of decline while cynics joyfully celebrate the end of Bitcoin. With such overwhelming negativity, the time for a Big Bounce is fast approaching.

1,200 CNY and $200 are extreme southern targets.*
