My theory/hypothesis: This is a CLEAR on the 4 hour Bitcoin chart. If you follow the out from the peak downwards, with the bottom as $12500-$12700 support, there seems to be a CRITICAL point that will occur sometime by the end of the first week in January. IF that $12500-$12700 support line is broken at that point (around 1.5.18-1.7.18), there will be a free-fall and MAJOR correction/gap down in Bitcoin at that point...I believe it could go to as low as $8K or more at next supports. Furthermore, I do not expect major spikes or dips in Bitcoin above $15K or below $12.5K until that time.
What do y'all think? Fair analysis?
DISCLAIMER: I USED to be long in Bitcoin in 2015, and bought the dip/sold EOD on 12/22, based on my chart analysis. I am a short-term Bitcoin bear, intermediate-term Bitcoin bull (until end of 2018-mid-2019 when there is more clarity in the crypto market on a perferred "winner), and a long-term Bitcoin bear.
I don't have any position in Bitcoin but MAY enter a short position (or more likely wait for the huge gap down, and then buy the dip I expect to occur) after 1/7, if this goes the way I think it will go.
