How Important is the Bottom at $6500?
Bitcoin [BTC] recorded a bottom at $6515, which was coincidentally was the support for the “multi-year bullish” trendline. According to leading chart analyst, Peter Brandt‘s report, this could be a bullish scenario as Bitcoin begins another parabolic phase.
However, the previous parabolic rise to $14,000 has not met with its correction yet. Hence, this could lead to longer periods of bear and consolidation. The target for 80% correction of the parabolic run is at $5340.
Moreover, Tone Vays was bearish in the near long term as well. His weekly chart analysis on RSI and MACD projects a target of about $5000.
Furthermore, he also noted that the bear market of 2018 did not conclude in its entirety as well. The run-up to $14,000 is not a sustainable bull run. A higher-high on the weekly RSI would signal a reversal. Until then, it is in a bearish trend.
At the moment, Bitcoin [BTC] faces a long period of bears and consolidation with a break below $6500. On the other hand, it is also building up the possibility of a new parabolic run with $10,000 as a strong technical and psychological resistance.
