As these words are being typed, it seems Bitcoin wants to rally and ethereum is looking weak. This proves the wisdom of waiting for confirmation before executing a trade. Readers of yesterday’s column will recall that I ended by saying I was prepared to buy ethereum and/or ethxbt, but suggested I would wait for confirmation. As of now that confirmation has still not come.
In fact, there are few concrete signals (that I can see) to indicate which way these currencies are going to break, so I for one will wait on the sidelines until a trend asserts itself.
What might constitute a CLEAR AND UNAMBIGUOUS SIGNAL? In bitcoin’s case a close above 750 would be strong evidence that the next leg of a rally was underway. But for those not willing to wait that long, a close above the 1×1 (blue line highlighted by blue arrow) in this 2-hour chart would be an indication that a sustainable rally might be in the works.
