Price Charts and Technical Analysis

The BTC / USD is expected to remain in correction mode for a while longer. But once the correction is complete – either deep toward Fibonacci rating levels or shallow through the ABCDE contracting triangle – then the uptrend should resume and aim for the $ 50,000 target.

The BTC / USD is now building a correction ABC (pink) – flat ABC (to the side) or zigzag ABC (deep correction). This may also extend to the ABCDE triangle chart pattern:

  • A triangle chart pattern is more likely if price action bounces (blue arrows) on the 144 ema and bottom of the previous A wave.

  • A cut from the bottom could indicate a zigzag ABC instead (a pink C ‘wave).

  • Wave 4 correction (purple) is expected as long as the price action does not break below the 78.6% Fib (yellow circle).

  • Continuation of bullish trend is expected either after breaking the resistance (green arrows) and showing a bull flag (gray arrows) or after the ABCDE is completed.

On the 1 hour chart, we can see how the correction progresses.

ABC (gray) correction completed wave B (pink) at Fibonacci scale level 78.6%. Now another ABC (gray) occurs within wave C (pink).

The main criteria will be the cut above the resistance (orange) or below the maintenance (green) trend lines.
